"In our struggle for freedom . . .

. . . truth is the only weapon we possess."  Dalai Lama

Truth cuts out the falsehood of any situation.  Truth goes to the heart of truth itself.  It helps us stand clear of what blocks, locks or mocks our system.  Truth is clear, firm and truth stands on its own.  When we are true to ourselves, we stand in our own clearing, despite what others might say, do or think.  Our inner truth can become our outer living truth.  When that happens no interference can come.

"The greatest enemy of knowledge . . .

. . . is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge."  Stephen Hawking

Once knowledge is known and applied, we can think we are the knowledge itself or perhaps we identify with being the knower itself.  Knowledge is a tool not who we are.  We have an inner knower, which is the soul.  The soul that dwells within is in deep relationship with the Infinite.  Appling the tool of knowledge allows us to accomplish great tasks and have a greater sense of the world.  As a tool it is useful. Who we are we can know through our inner ability to access our soul's level of knowing.

"People will forget what you said . . .

. . . they will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."  Maya Angelou

Compassion, understanding and kindness are attributes of the Heart.  They make us feel more positive, more open and happier.  When we understand the way the world works in the bigger picture, we begin to see how more alike we are than different. Seeing the world through bigger eyes opens us to greater and greater expressions of compassion.  As we love ourselves, we love others and the world.  We can become the Love itself.

"It is only in quietness . . .

. . . and peace that one can know what is the best thing to do."  The Mother - "Rays of Light"

Choosing quiet moments of sacred time and space, listening to the depth of our heart, soul and inner guidance brings us the awareness of what is truly correct to do in our lives.  If we simply react or have an immediate response, often we are coming from our old programming, judgment, fear or desire and not from a point of greater clarity.  Making time each day, as often as needed, to sit in silence with clear intention allows us to treasure our inner peace and calm.  As we consciously do this practice, it brings us the opportunity to deeply listen and to know.

"The secret of change . . .

 . . . is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new."  Socrates

The cycle and process of growth and change has in it new beginnings and openings, blossoming, fullness and slow signs of decay until the end when new beginnings are possible again.  Seasons and life cycles all show this pattern.  The peach begins as an innocent flower, dropping its petals as the young fruit ripens into fullness, finally dropping the aging peach to the ground, leaving just the pit, awaiting spring once again.  When we try to grab onto what is fading instead of focusing on what is ripening, we forget the absolute wonder of life and how evolution needs our energy too. Strengthening the new with our focus helps to usher in the future aspects of life and Love itself.

"Every cell of our being . . .

. . . is made up of Love.  This Love is now being activated to its full potential."  Emmanuel

As a new era of Heart begins to open more fully, fear can become more apparent.  To remove the fear, one must activate the force of Love.  Love is our truth.  Releasing our fear and opening our true heart to Love is like lighting a candle in a darkened room.  All is now illuminated.  Love comes forward and the fear subsides.

"Did you know . . .

. . . that the loving acceptance of yourself, all parts of you, can change the entire planet."  Author Unknown

Without specific definition or through the eyes of others, loving and accepting ourselves can change our energy, uplift our sense of self and activate a higher Love.  It becomes like one lit flame, illuminating all things around it.  Accepting our self is like saying yes to God's perception of us.  Through the highest expression of Love, self acceptance vibrates Yes to all aspects of us resonating YES to the whole of creation.  A collective "YES" becomes a most positive force for change.

"Love grows by giving . . .

. . . The Love we give away is the only Love we keep.  The only way to retain Love is to give it away."  Elbert Hubbard

Love resonates with Love.  The more we feel, share and give away Love, the more it resonates back.  As it generates more and more, the greater it touches our lives and the lives of others.  Love is a universal and cosmic life force in the world.  As we Love, so Loves the world and everyone in it.  Love is our truth because Love is truth.

"Let yourself be silently drawn . . .

. . . by the strange pull of what you really love.  It will not lead you astray."  Rumi

Love is our core truth.  Love is the strongest force in the universe.  When we trust the whispers in the heart, reminding us of what we love, we are guided towards and by that force of Love.  Love takes us where we need to be.  Where we need to be is Love itself.

"Listen to no other voice . . .

. . . but the voice of Love and it is silent."  Yogi Ant - "Nature's Voice"

Pure and truthful Love is our inner knowing-ness.  It is quietly present and always within us and always with us. Love is our true and pure nature.

"Wherever there is lack . . .

. . . in your life, there is a need to bring love."   Paul Ferrini

The energy of lack is a contracting force, the energy of love is, by contrast, expansion.  When we focus on lack, we naturally pull in and when we focus on Love, we naturally open up.  Our mind closes down with lack and our heart becomes wider with Love.  If we Focus on Loving the areas of our life where we currently feel there is a lack, the energy of Love opens us to greater and greater possibilities!

"Knowledge is learning something . . .

. . . new every day.  Wisdom is letting go of something every day."  Zen Proverb

Knowledge is gaining awareness, information, consciousness or understanding.  When we have used our accumulated knowledge, we can release it and realize the wisdom.  The wisdom comes when we realize why we sought the knowledge to begin with and how and why we used it.  If we used it wisely or not, we can still realize the wisdom in seeking it.

"Facing the different situations of life with a positive attitude . . .

. . . and openness brings maturity and understanding."  Amma

Every aspect of life is a gift, like every cloud has a silver lining.  As it affects us, we may not see or understand the blessing in it at the time of impact.  In retrospect, as the haze, daze or craze of it clears, we realize we have grown and matured because our understanding of life and our self has deepened and expanded.  In that new perspective, we see why it may have had to happen or, at the least, the timing of it in hindsight.  In that way, the challenge has now become a triumph!

"The whole theory of the universe . . .

. . . is directed unerringly to one single individual - namely you."  Walt Whitman

When we think we are just our limited mind and body, we can feel quite small.  In comparison, the universe looks too vast to comprehend.  Yet, when we view it through the expanded idea of energy, we realize we are the same energy as the whole of creation.  It exists and we exist so how can we be separate?  How we live and how we Love resonates throughout the universe.  Focusing on peace, Love, joy and positive thoughts and feelings, we add to all those lovely possibilities for us all.

"Tell me whom you love . . .

. . . and I'll tell you who you are."  Creole proverb

Who and what we love will continue to guide us on our path in life.  We will be driven to invest in it, listen to it, learn from it, align with it and work with it.  It is our nature to Love and when we put our Heart into what we love it shapes and forms our lives.  In the human experience our love takes many shapes and forms throughout our lives.  During our many ages and stages of growth and development, human and spiritual, our Love matures too.  What we Love reveals who we are.

"There is no end of seeking . . .

. . . and of birth . . .The life that wins its aims asks greater aims . . .'Till it has found itself it cannot cease."  Sri Aurobindo - "Light Endless Light".

The natural drive in the organism is to survive.  Yet all aspects of our human nature continue to seek growth, expansion, learning, development and evolution.  This pertains to our human nature, spiritual nature and beyond to our heart, soul and consciousness.  The search and continual seeking to find our True Self is lead by a sincere inner aspiration, guided by Truth itself.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it . . .

. . . living someone else's life.  Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking.  Don't let the noise of other people's opinions drown out your own inner voice.  And most important have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.  They somehow already know what you want to be."  Steve Jobs

In a world where mental functions and abilities are highly praised and rewarded, tuning out our own inner voice, heart and intuition is an easy thing to do.  Yet, when we have the courage to quiet our mind and listen to our inner knowingness in the heart and use, realize and trust our intuition, amazing things are possible. Just that inner sense of knowing is enough to guide us in ways that our mind may not understand.  We will be guided truthfully when we listen.

"There is no situation that could ever . . .

. . . confront you that cannot be solved.  Life takes on real meaning when you set values for yourself, regard yourself as worthwhile and elevate your thoughts to things that are of God.  There is a Higher Power.  Turn to it and use it.  It is yours for the asking."  Brian Adams - "Guide to the Advanced Soul"

When we trust in a Higher Power and know that the intelligence of energy and Love is real and accessible, it becomes a force of positive, useful Light that works with us and in our system in ways that assist our life.  It is our True Essence found in a deep and profound level of life and awareness.  As we use this Light and Love, which is a Higher Power, it illuminates what is correct and shows us the right action to take.  It guides our lives with strength.

"Truth alone can give to the world . . .

. . . the power of receiving and manifesting the Divine Love."  The Mother - "Rays of Light"

Truth comes in two clear forms; relative truth and absolute truth.  Relative truth relates to the earth plane and to our lives, such as the way of facts and function.  The truth of the rules of the road, for example.  Absolute truth speaks of the expanded view of who we are and why we are here on earth.  It speaks of purpose and the infinite plan for our lives.  It speaks of Love as a constant positive force in the whole of creation that we are not separate from as that same energy is also who we truly are!  When we know and feel that truth, we know and feel that Love.  All of Life resonates with that Pure Love.

"The essential conditions of everything . .

. . . you do must be choice, love and passion."  Nadia Boulanger

When we move through life with conscious choice, using our heart for navigation and with active passion, enthusiasm and interest, we activate similar energies in the people and environment around us.  We attract a similar vibration to us and through us, which adds more inspiration and joy, creating more positive results.  With this expanded energy, negative thoughts and feelings will and do subside.  Fulfillment through more Love and Joy also activates greater health and well being.

"Knowing is not enough . . .

. . . we must apply.  Waiting is not enough, we must do."  Bruce Lee

It is through action that Love manifests.  It is through doing that we integrate Light into earth.  Love and Light are transformational energies. They need conscious action in order to uplift and enlighten the world. Integrating them into our awareness through consciousness, we will know the right action to take at the right time.

"Keep calling forward the essence . . .

. . . of spiritual love every day so you keep lifting higher.  Let no thing stop you from this endeavor, for it is more important than any other activity."  John Roger

The essence of spiritual love offers a purity through an inspirational vibration aligning with the higher realms of thought, feeling and perception.  It is found in the layers and levels of our higher human nature, reflective of the spirit.  The more we open to this essence and sing out for it, the more it resonates to us.  Clarity and sincerity are aspects of spiritual love and the more we experience them, the more they move the heart with joy!

"Be soft. Do not let the world . . .

. . . make you hard.  Do not let pain make you hate.  Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.  Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."  Kurt Vonnegut

Softness has long been perceived as a weakness.  Yet, softness as an energy is useful and necessary in healing, in the ability to bring balance and harmony and it is a much needed energy for peace.  A soft breeze carries seeds to where they can open and blossom, a soft fire warms our hearts and souls and soft flowing water eases our worries and lulls us to sleep.  Sweetness, beauty and gentleness are aspects of life that smooth out all things hard, guiding the most rigid aspects in life to places of harmonious flexibility through principles of gentle fluidity.

"Rather than being your thoughts . . .

. . . and emotions, Be the awareness behind them".  Eckhart Tolle

Accessing our True Being Self allows us to align and attune with Love, Joy and Light.  It fills our Heart with an awareness of True Presence; a feeling we are not separate from Love itself.  Human thoughts and emotions can color and distort truth, creating confusion.  Often they are just reactions to someone else's thoughts and emotions and not a true reflection of our self or of their true nature either.  Becoming the awareness itself, can calm and quiet the thoughts and emotions that leave our system unsettled.  Loving the awareness behind thoughts and emotions, allows us to Love our self.

"Perfection is achieved . . .

. . . not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."  Antoine de Saint-Expuery

When we stand as a True Self, we mirror True Love.  Infinite Light and Love is not separate from us.  It is our True Essence.  It is always present and it is found in all living things.  It is the energy of life itself.  A tree growing in nature, is its very self and true to its natural essence.  It stands in that true mirror of what it is.  It does not attempt to be a flower or a bush.  Its strength lies in its ability and determination to be a tree.

"The meaning of life . . .

. . . is to find your gift.  The purpose of life is to give it away."  Africa Yoga Project

To search for our true abilities takes us on a journey and path to understand who we really are.  We are capable of so much more than we realize by virtue of our essence and our Light.  All of life is a vibration of Love and an energetic intelligence.  We are a part of that, too, once we can see beyond our limited human form.  Looking for our gift takes us beyond the ordinary into the extraordinary and once there, we know we must share it.  In sharing, we give it away!

"Close your eyes, fall in love . . .

 . . . stay there."  Rumi

Love is the truth we are all looking for because it is the true essence of life.  When we listen to the Earth's Heart, we hear Love, when we listen to a baby's laugh, we know Love, when we watch a beautiful sunset, we see Love and when we see a lovely dance of Love, we feel Love.  It is all around us and Love is the most positive force we can experience.  There is Cosmic Love, Universal Love, Love for Earth and all of life, human Love for ourselves and others and Love in one's own Heart.  Love is in all we know and what is also unknown.  When we stay in the vibration of Love, more Love finds it's way to us.

"There is an extraordinary potential hidden inside . . .

. . . every human being.  If it is awakened, it will take you to a much higher plane of consciousness - beyond the limitations of the human body-mind.  Experience this super-consciousness, actualize your human potential.  This is the only aim of human life - to live the ultimate luxury of enlightenment." Paramahamsa Nithyananda

They say we only use 5% of our mind.  To expand our mind and intellect, we must aspire to go beyond it.  The mind and intellect exercise certain faculties to understand life but our true human potential goes way beyond those limitations.  Consciousness and compassion are a powerful tools to access the Higher realms of knowledge, truth and understanding.  It links us to a higher universal thought and higher feeling of Love and Life.  It guides us to our truth, which enlightens us to who we are.  It is a process of awakening.  Aspire to know that level of yourself.

"There have always been those . . .

. . . who create and those who tear down . . . perception is transformed and a new reality is born."  Dan Brown - "The Lost Symbol"

In the ancient text of India, the three universal energies/archetypes described are The Creator, The Destroyer and The Sustainer.  Looking at the various ages/stages of our human and spiritual growth, development and evolution,  and nature's four seasons, we notice this pattern.  Often what was created must be taken down or destroyed and, in between, sustained in order for life to go on and grow on. Like a two-lane road when it is first built.  As the population grows, and storm after storm destroys it with potholes, cracks and dips, a new four lane highway might be needed to accommodate the increased population and current times.  With all the newest engineering and technology, the larger highway is build to be sustained over time until it is once again torn down and a call for new development is heard again. Arriving in the name of progress, which answers to the demand for new growth.

"The only response that never fails . . .

. . . is the Divine's.  The only Love that never fails is the Divine's.  Love the Divine alone and the Divine will always be with you."  The Mother - "Rays of Light"

Surrendering any and all misery to the highest Love in our system is offering up what is not love within us to become the Love itself.  It takes trust, faith and understanding to do so and a real experience that it happened to completely realize how well it works.  The deepest Love we carry in our Heart is Love itself,  connecting us to the working power of Love.  When we trust that Love to balance, harmonize and bring peace to our system, it answers our truest sincerity with more Love.  The highest, pure Love is the true transformational power.
