TODAY'S LIFE LESSON: shares the truth about our journey and who we are as souls on a spiritual quest for love. We have been designed by our creator to manifest anything our hearts desire in order to experience the various forms of love and also the absence of love.

As it is with light and dark - so it is with our pursuit of understanding. We would not value the light as much if we had not spent ...a season or two in the darkness. Each of us view the darkness differently but it all contributes to the collective awareness of the Oneness we are a part of.

The research we have been conducting is very much a part of this formula:

SCARED= The feeling we have as we face our fears
SCARRED= The wounds we hold in our hearts
SACRED= The truth about who we are as souls of light

Donna Hamilton

One of the most important things to be understood about man is that man is asleep. Even while he thinks he is awake, he is not. His wakefulness is very fragile; his wakefulness is so tiny it doesn't matter at all. His wakefulness is only a beautiful name but utterly empty.
You sleep in the night, you sleep in the day-- from birth to death you go on changing your patterns of sleep, but you never really awaken. Just by opening the eyes don't befool yourself that you are awake. Unless the inner eyes open-- unless your inside becomes full of light, unless you can see yourself, who you are--don't think that you are awake. That is the greatest illusion man lives in. And once you accept that you are already awake, then there is no question of making any effort to be awake.
The majority consists of fools, utter fools. Beware of the majority.
If so many people are following, that is enough a proof
that something is wrong.
Truth happens to individuals, not to crowds.
Try again, fail again. Fail better.
Each individual has to experience the truth in his heart because the experience of others cannot be his own experience. The spiritual teacher is he who passes on the information and the student is he who practices and transforms the information into his own truth, his own essence.

Tony Samara

The practice of patience guards us against losing our presence of mind. It enables us to remain undisturbed, even when the situation is really difficult. It gives us a certain amount of inner peace, which allows us some self-control, so that we can choose to respond to situations in an appropriate and compassionate manner, rather than being driven by our disturbing emotions.

This is the day your dream comes to life. Because this is the day when you can take a positive, intentional step toward it.
Today, you have the power to think and act and live as you choose. Choose to focus your thoughts on the positive possibilities and to live with real meaning and fulfillment. It is only a convenient illusion that life seems to happen to you. In fact, the life that matters is the life that happens from you and through you. Live this day from the perspective of authentic purpose, and nothing can keep you down. Use the grand opportunity of this moment to more fully be the beautiful, unique person you truly are. You are alive and aware and filled with a vision of how life can be when it is at its best. Feel the rightness of your purpose and live it with everything you have. Today, life’s abundance and limitless possibilities stretch out in every direction. Today, you can make it all into something magnificent and uniquely you.

“The silence depressed me. It wasn't the silence of silence. It was my own silence.”

Sylvia Plath
“Life has been some combination of fairy-tale coincidence and joie de vivre and shocks of beauty together with some hurtful self-questioning.”

Sylvia Plath
God, but life is loneliness, despite all the opiates, despite the shrill tinsel gaiety of "parties" with no purpose, despite the false grinning faces we all wear. And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul..., you stop in shock at the words you utter - they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long. Yes, there is joy, fulfillment and companionship - but the loneliness of the soul in its appalling self-consciousness is horrible and overpowering.

Sylvia Plath
I have never found anybody who could stand to accept the daily demonstrative love I feel in me, and give back as good as I give.
“I must get my soul back from you; I am killing my flesh without it.”

Sylvia Plath
Yes, I was infatuated with you: I am still. No one has ever heightened such a keen capacity of physical sensation in me. I cut you out because I couldn't stand being a passing fancy. Before I give my body, I must give my thoughts, my mind, my dreams. And you weren't having any of those...
Sylvia Plath
I didn’t want any flowers, I only wanted to lie with my hands turned up and be utterly empty. How free it is, you have no idea how free.

Sylvia Plath
We should meet in another life, we should meet in air, Me and you.

Sylvia Plath
I want to be important. By being different. And these girls are all the same.

Sylvia Plath
Can you understand? Someone, somewhere, can you understand me a little, love me a little? For all my despair, for all my ideals, for all that - I love life. But it is hard, and I have so much - so very much to learn.

Sylvia Plath
See good in everyone and be blind to the faults of others. It will bring peace in your life. Things do not change so let us change our way of looking.

Life laughs at you when you are unhappy...
Life smiles at you when you are happy...
But, Life salutes you when you make others happy.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.

Pure heart is the greatest temple in the world. Don't believe the affection face, but believe the affection heart, they are very rare in this world.

Meditation is the technique of inner conquest -- and that is the real challenge. Those who have any guts should accept the inner challenge. It is easy to reach the moon, it is easy to reach Everest; it is far more difficult to reach your own centre. But the moment you reach it all ecstasy is yours, and forever and forever. You attain to a bliss which cannot be taken away from you.
You have something beautiful to offer. You have an inspiring and uplifting story to tell. You experience life in a way that’s unlike anyone else. You have things to say that can benefit everyone else. You have dreams, visions, and values that can make a real difference in the world. You can give love and joy and meaning to every moment you’re in. You can make a difference today. You can make life worth living by the way you live it. You are a priceless, unique expression of what it means to be. Through the focus of your existence, all of existence is brought to life in a way that has no equal. Live this day with joy and richness and substance and love. Show all of life, in fresh new ways in every moment, why it is so very much worth living.

Here is the road: the light
comes and goes then returns again.
Be gentle with your fellow travelers
as they move through the world of stone and stars
whirling with you yet every one alone.
The road waits.
Do not ask questions but when it invites you
to dance at daybreak, say yes.
Each step is the journey; a single note the song.

The more you do something, the better you do it. Tricks and gimmicks and shortcuts might help a little bit, yet practice is what creates mastery. If you seek to do it well, then do it often. There is nothing that can take the place of practice.
Do you wish to be more confident in unfamiliar situations? Then transform them into familiar situations by rehearsing them in advance, with lots of practice. There are some things your mind remembers, and then there are those things remembered by the entirety of your being. Practice instills that powerful holistic form of memory. Sure, it can be immensely frustrating when you’re not as skilled as you’d like to be. Make use of that frustration by channeling its energy into determination, and with that determination, practice. Practice winning, practice losing, practice making the effort, practice peacefully accepting disappointment and gracefully accepting success. Every time you practice, you make yourself that much better.

Be soft and cool like water so you can adjust anywhere in life. Be hard and attractive like diamond so no one can play with your emotions.
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

When you lift the phone you say Hello....
Do you know what is the real meaning of Hello ?
It is the name of a girl !!! YES !!!!!!!!!!!
And do you know who is that girl ??
Margaret Hello
She was the girlfriend of Graham Bell who invented telephone....
One can forget the name of Graham Bell but not his girlfriend, that is LOVE !!!!!

You are fine just the way you are. You don't have to change for someone else's approval. Within each of us lies a beauty that is everlasting. One that shines brighter than anything we ever imagined. So go deep within and embrace your powerful essence. So when others want you to change for their sake remember you are who you are for a reason. If something needs changing in your life then change it, but do it for yourself. Not because someone else thinks it's right. And always remember: You are more than just ordinary, you're absolutely magnificent.

"When you become deeply engrossed in something, all of a sudden you will hear a sort of music ringing within you. This is the music of peace. At times when you are listening to good music this absorption can happen. You forget yourself for ...a moment; for a moment the past and future disappear and you are drowned in the sweet sound of music. Live in the present and you will experience that moment of peace all around you: at times such a moment comes in love, at times in the beauty of nature. These are the moments you experience peace."
Bliss is true happiness. What you call happiness is just misery in disguise. What you call happiness is nothing but entertainment, pleasure. It is momentary -- it cannot be true. Truth has to have one quality, and the quality is of eternity. If something is true it is eternal; if it is untrue it is momentary. True happiness is found only when the mind completely ceases functioning. It does not come from the outside. It wells up within your own being, it starts overflowing you. You become luminous. You become a fountain of bliss.
Don't wait for some great bliss to descend on you. It never happens. Great bliss is nothing but small pleasures accumulating in your being. The total of all the small pleasures is the great bliss. Eating, enjoy it. Drinking, enjoy it. Takin...g a bath, enjoy it. Walking, enjoy it. Such a beautiful world, such a beautiful morning, such beautiful clouds...what else do you need to celebrate? The sky full of stars...what more do you need to be prayerful? The sun rising from the east...what more do you need to bow down? And amidst a thousand and one thorns a small roseflower arises, opening its buds, so fragile, so vulnerable, yet so strong, so ready to fight with the wind, with the lightning, with the thunderings. Look at the courage...what more do you need to understand trust?
Love, but not as a need -- as a sharing. Love, but don't expect -- give. Love, but remember your love should not become an imprisonment for the other. Love, but be very careful; you are moving on sacred ground. You are going into the highes...t, the purest and holiest temple. Be alert! Drop all impurities outside the temple. When you love a person, love the person as if the person is a god, not less than that. Never love a woman as a woman and never love a man as a man, because if you love a man as a man your love is going to be very, very ordinary. Your love is not going to be more than lust. If you love a woman as a woman, your love is not going to soar very high. Love a woman as a goddess, then love becomes worship.
Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are caused by too much future, and not enough presence.
Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.....

People say... "Find good people and leave bad ones." But I changed it as... "Find the good in people and ignore the bad in them." Because, "No one is perfect..."
Day by day nothing changes... But when you look back everything is different.
Life is like a roller coaster. It has it's ups and downs. But it’s your own choice to scream or enjoy the ride.
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.

You know why God didn't give us the gift to read minds of others? So that we would have the chance to "Trust" and the privilege to be "Trusted."
Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.

"It's difficult to believe in yourself because the idea of self is an artificial construction. You are, in fact, part of the glorious oneness of the universe. Everything beautiful in the world is within you."
Just the way a raindrop brings hope to a dying flower, your smile might bring hope to someone who is lost. Give the world your best smile… Today, tomorrow and everyday.

When you think your road is rocky and a bit too steep to climb,
When you think your guardian angel needs to work some overtime,
When your personal jigsaw puzzle has some pieces that won't fit,
When life has no rhyme or reaso...n and you can't make sense of it,


When the clouds are dark and stormy and have blocked the sunshine out,
And perhaps you start to wonder what this life is all about,
When your trials and tribulations seem to be so hard to bear,
And it seems there is no justice anytime or anywhere,


When the molehills seem like mountains and the obstacles are great,
When you feel so heavy laden and your worries just inflate,
When you can't see any ending to the problems that you face,
For they just keep on increasing and you need some breathing space,


It may be you need to look a little higher than before,
Or perhaps a little further to see past the clouds once more.
But you'll know it's worth the effort when your rainbow you can see,
And you understand the love behind God's creativity,


For your rainbow holds a promise that this turbulence will cease,
And your inner conflict will become, instead, deep inner peace.
But if, though searching, you can't find your rainbow at this time,
Until you can, I say with love, you're welcome to share mine.
