Cultivate Awareness


Let us not look back in anger
or forward in fear,
but around in awareness.
- James Thurber

It is the Consciousness with which we participate
in activities that makes the difference.
- Michael Beckwith

Pay attention. Cultivate awareness.
Life cannot be lived fully or joyfully if
our thoughts are focused on regretting the past,
preoccupied with anticipating the future,
or lost in the mind-fog of unconscious habitual behavior.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Today, begin to look on all things
with love, appreciation and open-mindedness.
- A Course in Miracles

What is necessary to change a person is
to change his awareness of himself.
- Abraham Maslow

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious
privilege it is to be alive -
to breathe,
to think, to enjoy, to love.
- Marcus Aurelius

For some of us, the world appears to provide
only a fixed quantity of each resource -
a limited amount of food, of money,
of love, of success, of appreciation.
For others, life is unlimited.
Their world expands with the generosity, compassion,
inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Today's affirmation: I practice keen awareness,
and make my choices with consciousness, courage,
and compassion toward all.

Train Yourself to See Beauty


See beauty in unexpected places.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

It all depends on how we look at things,
and not how they are in themselves.
- Carl Jung

Judgements prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.
- Wayne Dyer

Let mad beauty collect itself in your eyes.
- Jewel

A flower is a weed seen through joyful eyes.
The virtue of anyone or anything is solely in our perspective.
See gold, and there is gold; see lead and there is lead.
If you see this thistle as a thorny nuisance, then it is a weed.
If you appreciate its bright pink bloom, then it is a flower.
It becomes what you name it.
The power is in your choice, your perspective, your speaking.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
- Franz Kafka

Look to Discovered Truth


Approach each new problem not with a view of finding what you hope will be there,
but to get the truth, the realities that must be grappled with.
You may not like what you find. In that case you are entitled to try to change it.
But do not deceive yourself as to what you do find to be the facts of the situation.
- Bernard M. Baruch

Everyone has a right to his own opinion, but no one has a right to be wrong in his facts.
- Bernard M. Baruch

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
- Aldous Huxley

Get the facts first.
You can distort them later.
- Mark Twain

We want the facts to fit the preconceptions.
When they don't, it is easier to ignore the facts
than to change the preconceptions.
- Jessamyn West

Allow Your Friends and Family Their Own Opinions


I never considered a difference of opinion
in politics, in religion, in philosophy,
as cause for withdrawing from a friend.
- Thomas Jefferson

We may have our private opinions
but why should they be a bar to the meeting of hearts?
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

Why should it impede your happiness
for others to have differing views on politics or religion?
for others to paint their houses purple
or grow asparagus in place of a grassy lawn?
for others to dress, mingle, celebrate, or dine in their own manner?

The path to happiness is to live your life joyfully in your own way,
and to support and encourage others to do likewise.

One of the surest ways to cause
yourself great suffering
is to insist upon being right -
to demand that all others view life
exactly as you view it.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Service, Not Money


Jesus said, "Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant."
- Mark 10:43

 We are rich only through what we give,
and poor only through what we refuse.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Jesus said, "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor,
and you will have treasure in heaven."
- Mark 10:21

The love of money is the root of all evil:
which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith,
and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
But thou, O man of God, flee these things;
and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
- Timothy 6:10-11

Go to the people.
Live among them.
Learn from them.
Love them.
Serve them.
- Jimmy Yen (Y. C. James Yen)
