Time Out

I will be taking a little break from posting to this blog for a while. Life has gotten very busy and the quality of photos and posts is starting to suffer. So please understand if I take a time out. If you miss me you can always drop by my other blog, Lyn's Lifepixels for a little visit. Have a great summer.

What is without periods of rest will not endure.

it is useless to seek it elsewhere.

Meaning Lies In Us

Love is what we are born with.
Fear is what we learn.
The spiritual journey is the unlearning
of fear and prejudices and
the acceptance of love
back in our hearts.
Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth.
To be consciously aware of it,
to experience love in ourselves and others,
is the meaning of life.
Meaning does not lie in things.
Meaning lies in us.

- Marianne Williamson

People Who Make Us Happy

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

~ Marcel Proust

You gain strength, courage and confidence
by every experience in which you really stop
to look fear in the face.
You are able to say to yourself,
"I lived through this horror.
I can take the next thing that comes along." . . .
You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

- Eleanor Roosevelt

God is the great mysterious motivator of what we call nature,

and it has often been said by philosophers,

that nature is the will of God.

And I prefer to say that nature is the only body of God

that we shall ever see.

Three Rules of Work

Three rules of work:
Out of clutter find simplicity;
From discord find harmony;
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

Finding Your Way Back

I know it is hard to accept, but an upset in your life is beneficial,
in that it tells you that you are off course in some way
and you need to find your way back
to your particular path of clarity once again.

What should young people do with their lives today?
Many things, obviously.
But the most daring thing is to create stable communities
in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.

It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence

that we can finally hear the whispers of truth

that life reveals to us,

as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts.

Beauty of Nature

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy

is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet,

alone with the heavens, nature and God.

Because only then does one feel

that all is as it should be

and that God wishes to see people happy,

amidst the simple beauty of nature.

- Anne Frank

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow.”

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you,
They're supposed to help you discover who you are.

Life as a Blank Canvas

I decided I'd treat this juncture in my life
as a blank canvas,
sketch an intention to achieve some good
and let life paint it in.
