Do not indulge in dreams of having what you have not, but reckon up the chief of the blessings you do possess, and and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours.
If you are deppressed, you are living in the past, if you are anxious you are living in the future, if you are at peace, you are living in the present.
You can map out a fight plan or a life plan, but when the action starts, it may not go the way you planned, and you’re down to your reflexes – that means your [preparation:]. That’s where your roadwork shows. If you cheated on that in the dark of the morning, well, you’re going to get found out now, under the bright lights.
Life is a one time offer, use it well.
It is only when we take chances, when our lives improve. The initial and the most difficult risk that we need to take is to become honest.
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
If you start living in the moment, fear disappears.
Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.
Life is a dance between making it happen and letting it happen.
