"Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to “die before you die” —- and find that there is no death."
"Peace doesn’t require two people; it requires only one. It has to be you. The problem begins and ends there."
"If somebody treats you with unkindness, it’s likely they have endured similar treatment in the past from others, and are only repeating unconscious patterns in search of a love they cannot find. They will continue to repeat until they wake up from their nightmare of projection, and truly see who you are, who they are, who we all are.
An excuse? No.
A way to begin to find compassion for them, to stop taking their behaviour so personally and so seriously, to begin to break the cycle of violence? Perhaps. And that ‘perhaps’ is everything when it comes to loving each other."
The light you shine from within, can very well be the light that is needed to awaken those around you.
Be a beacon for those in the dark.
