Allen Ginsberg -kindness of the soul

Arthur Rimbaud - silence

“I turned silences and nights into words. What was unutterable, I wrote down. I made the whirling world stand still.” ~Arthur Rimbaud

Janet Futch - loneliness

♥*✿*•♥

“
Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. And intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.” ~Janet Fitch

"It seems like everyone these days is putting on a mask to feel beautiful, trying to fit into some pre-established norms of how we should look. This isn’t only painful, it’s ignorant. Saying like we know, better than nature does, what is beautiful and what is not is like a two-year-old lecturing an old man about patience. Nature’s been creating beauty for millennia and you are part of that creation process. Stop the madness. Stop fighting who you are. Let the mask fall. It’ll be strange at first, yes. But, over time, you’ll see beyond the temporary discomfort of stepping outside social norms and learn to see the beauty you were born with, the beauty you’ve been taught to ignore and cover up. You’ll see beauty that will take your breath away, like a sunset. That’s how beautiful you are - like a sunset, like a forest, like a million fireflies on a calm warm night lighting up the sky. You are made by nature. Nature is wiser in the ways of beauty than cosmetics companies or magazines. Break the spell. Gain back your sanity. Go find that brilliant beauty within every single part of you. Go find the universe in your eyes. Remove that cloak that’s been pulled over your eyes and see yourself for who you really are." ~Vironika Tugaleva

Quotes From Thyme and Again


"A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are." ~Unattributed

"At some point you have to realise that some people can stay in your heart, but not in your life." ~Unattributed

"Allow yourself to hope, to believe and to trust again. Don't let a few bad memories stop you from having a good life now. " ~Unattributed

"Although gold dust is precious, when it gets in your eyes it obstructs your vision. Without balance in other parts of our lives (relationships, personal time, health), external or professional goals may blind us to the things that really matter." ~Unattributed

"Always rise above the drama and lies people tell. They are not so worth it." ~Thyme and Again

"Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten." ~Thyme and Again

"Be confident. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren't. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is only when you accept everything you are - and aren't - that you will truly be happy." ~Unattributed by Thyme and Again

"Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others. Sometimes when we’re feeling fragile we forget that we’re not exclusively entitled to feelings of vulnerability, so please remember you’re not the only one with problems, everyone has their share of ‘stuff’ to deal with. Whilst you’re feeling fragile, bear in mind that empathy, compassion and kindness can, and should co-exist." ~Unattributed

"Create a life that feels good on the inside, not just one that looks good on the outside." ~Unattributed by Thyme and Again

"Don't carry what you dont need, in your pocket, in your home, in your heart." ~from Thyme and Again

"Don't give up what you want most, for what you want now." ~Unattributed

"Don’t judge yourself by your past. You don’t live there anymore." ~Unattributed

"Every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare." ~Wendelin Van Draanen

"Every sorrow and difficulty that comes in your way are stepping stones for a better tomorrow." ~Unattributed

"Everyone leaves. Learning to love and be loved despite this fact is one of the hardest and greatest things a person can do." ~Unattributed

"'Examine what you tolerate....'
Thought provoking, I'm interested what you'll see.. maybe a reflection of self esteem, compassion, patience, attitude, special circumstances, level of understanding; I wonder. I think I have learnt to be more tolerant in many ways, yet certainly less in others. while I hope I am a kinder, more understanding, forgiving, more compassionate, considerate version of my younger self; I know that certain people/situations get much less airtime, and I often find myself delivering a sometimes polite yet often very direct message and really not caring if someone doesn't like how I see things." ~Thyme and Again

"Find someone who makes you realize three things; one, that home is not a place, but a feeling. Two, that time is not measured by a clock, but by moments. And three, that heartbeats are not heard, but felt and shared." ~Unattributed

"I'm not sure we can choose to 'not care', but I do think that sometimes we have to let our brain keep our heart in check as a self-preservation tactic. When our emotions are tempted to let someone trample all over us, we should just check in to that place in our hearts, that loves us enough to be strong and walk away, even when it hurts short term, to save a bigger hurt long term. Have courage, protect your precious heart." ~Unattributed

"In life you're going to be left out, talked about, lied to, and used, but you have to decide who's worth your tears, and your loyalty and who's not. Its a shame to waste your love and energy, so save it for the loyal, trustworthy, loving, kind, caring souls you will meet along the way, save it for the ones who truly deserve it." ~Unattrubted

"In quiet places reason abounds." ~Thyme and Again

"It's not who you think you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not." ~Unattributed from Thyme and Again

"Keep trying, keep reaching, keep dreaming." ~Anon

"Know who you are, and know its enough." ~Thyme and Again

"Knowing that both your presence and your absence mean something to someone who's presence and absence mean something to you, can induce an incredible feeling." ~Thyme and Again

"Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change." ~Unattributed

"Learn to appreciate what you have, before time makes you appreciate what you had." ~Unattributed

"Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions be louder than your words." ~Unattributed

"Life is like a camera. Just focus on what's important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, just take another shot." ~Thyme and Again

"Life is nothing without a grateful heart." ~Unattributed

"Life will keep bringing you the same test over and over again, until you pass it." ~Unattributed

"No spot on earth is on holier ground than where you stand for all that has come before is in you." ~Unattributed

"Once you become consciously aware of just how powerful your thoughts are, you will realize everything in your life is exactly how YOU allow it to be." ~Unattributed

"Once you've accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you." ~Unattributed

"One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can't change." ~Unattributed

"Open your mind to the fact that not everyone is having the same experience as you. People can be in the same room, listening to the same conversation and come away with very different perceptions. No one is right and no one is wrong. Our minds create our reality, and each reality is unique for each person. We add our own thoughts and experiences to every emotion, every reaction. Let’s try to remember this next time we feel the need to argue our point and be right." ~Anon

"People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Remember, the way we treat ourselves, sets the standards for others; be wonderful to yourself today." ~Unattributed

"Since everything is a reflection of our minds, everything can be changed by our minds." ~The Collected Works of Venerable Master Chin Kung

"Sometimes no matter how much you want for things to happen, all you can do is wait. And usually, waiting is the hardest part." ~Thyme and Again

"Sometimes the first step to forgiveness is understanding the other person is a complete idiot." ~Unattributed

"Sometimes the people around you won't understand your journey, they don't need to, it's not for them." ~Unattributed from Thyme and Again

"Sometimes you have to fall many times from grace, to really understand & appreciate all that has been in your life." ~Unattributed

"Somewhere in the world there is a treasure that has no value to anyone but you, and a shimmering secret that is meaningless to everyone except you, and a frontier that harbours a marvellous revelation only you know how to celebrate." ~Unattributed

"Stay close to anything that makes you glad to be alive." ~Thyme and Again

"Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you're in need. People who would never take advantage of you. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through." ~Unattributed

"The best feeling in the world is being loved back by the person you love." ~Unattributed

"The best moments of your life will be the small nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you." ~from Thyme and Again

"The first step towards a new destination is the decision that there is somewhere you should be, more than the place you are.. the second step is the courage to leave the familiar in search of the spectacular." ~from Thyme and Again

"The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. And the first to forget is the happiest." ~Unattributed

"The greatest gift you can give might be the gift that you yourself were never given. Give that gift." ~Unattributed

"The shadow chapters of our lives are as invaluable as the light. Do not discard the challenging times, the sadness, the pain, for they are where the growth happens, where the healing takes place and where wholeness arises from." ~Unattributed

"The surest way to lose your self worth is by trying to find it through the eyes of others." ~Thyme and Again

"The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter." ~Unattributed

"There are joys which long to be ours. God sends ten thousands truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away." ~Henry Ward Beecher

"There are moments which mark your life. Moments when you realise that nothing will ever be the same, and time is divided into two parts, before this and after this." ~Unattributed

"There are things we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." ~Unattributed

"There comes a point when you realise you'll never be good enough for some people. The question is, is that your problem or theirs and does it really matter?" ~Unattributed

"There will be days like this: When you step out of the phone booth to fly and the very people you are trying to save are those standing on your cape." ~Thyme and Again

"We all have a story we will never tell. Some are too painful, some are just ridiculous, some we are ashamed of, and some don't seem to matter. Yet all our stories create us through the experiences we've weathered, the lessons we've learned, and the characters we met along the way may or may not realise the impact they've had upon our existence. Maybe we should tell more stories, to share that we're not alone in our struggles, to extend the encouragement we have found along the way to becoming who we are, and the hope of where we intend to go. Life is a struggle, but we're here to help each other, and maybe our stories are just another way we can hold out our hands." ~Unattributed

"When people walk away from you, let them go, your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn't mean they are bad people, it just means that their part in your story is over." ~Unattributed

"Work for a cause, not applause. Live life to express, not to impress. Don't strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt." ~Anon

"Worry is a misuse of your imagination." ~Thyme and Again

"You are enough. You are not less-than, not-as-good as, or beneath anyone. You are a miracle of thoughts, spirit and heart. And although you may not be where you want to be in life yet, you have the all the tools to get you there. Seek your tools, see their value, see your value, and realize, you are enough." ~Unattributed by Thyme and Again

"You cannot heal a heart with the same hands that broke it, stop tracing blood trails back to the past expecting to find love in the same places it died." ~from Thyme and Again

"You don't measure love in time,
you measure love in transformation
sometimes the longest connections
yield very little growth,
while the briefest encounters
change everything.
The heart doesn't wear a watch, its timeless.
It doesn't care how long you know someone
what it cares about is resonance.
Resonance that opens it,
resonance that enlivens it,
resonance that calls it home.
And when it finds it,
the transformation begins."
~Thyme and Again

"You must listen to your heart and follow it, or it will find a million ways to remind you that there is something missing." ~Unattributed by Thyme and Again

We decide how we deal with the negative words from society and those around us -- whether to allow them to destroy or to empower us. By sharing our stories, we just might have the opportunity to help heal the scar of one person out there -- maybe even more. If we help one person heal from a scar, then what other amazing things are we capable of accomplishing?" ~A

"Fill your Heart with what is Important and be done with the rest." ~Di Riseborough

"How strange that the nature of life is change as it's always constant, yet the nature of human beings is to resist it. How ironic that the difficult times we fear might ruin us are the very ones that can break us open and help us blossom into who we were meant to be." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"In life, there are no second chances... but you can start a new beginning in this moment, one choice at a time. Courage is the ability to make the changes, choose your own path and live a New Beginning." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"It is always possible to be thankful for what is given rather than to complain about what is not given. One or the other becomes a habit of life." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"Most family relationships are dysfunctional and as we evolve to becoming more conscious we see the role we play. It is then at that point we might need to make a decision to change our behavior which impacts the behavior of another. When we change our within it affects our external world as well, but it is important to check in and see what is best for ourselves, where we might compromise...and if we do we need to take ownership for it....." ~Di Riseborough, Intuitive Life Strategist

"Never let another break your spirit, especially if you believe in something powerful. You have a responsibility to yourself to honour your soul's path as in the end it is you who walks in your shoes along your journey." ~Di Riseborough

"Never live life to make people happy, because at the end of the day you are the only one that has to walk in those shoes." ~Di Riseborough

"Often we seek others thoughts on what we are to do, but in the end it's important for you to trust what is best for you." ~Di Riseborough

"Our need to be right or wrong comes from the place of our ego mind and often shrouded in fear, while the soul which essence is love is to just BE." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"Our self esteem can often take a knock when the ones we love are critical. Our inner judge grabs hold of the illusion and uses it against you to make you feel bad about yourself. Don't let it, dig deep and find your inner strength to say 'No, that is not true', my true wisdom knows the truth and find ways to improve your thinking, what is great about you....and to not let other people's perceptions be your truth. So, in case you forget remind yourself of this..." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"Patience is key, timing is everything...your time will come, be patient." ~Di Riseborough

"The actions of the adult child today are not a reflection of the parent yesterday. We as adults are 100% responsible for own own actions and life, for our own choices and decisions. So let go of the attachment to blame others for what we do." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"The best way to be conscious, to become self-aware is to STOP and PAY ATTENTION. Listen to the whisperings of your soul." ~Di Riseborough

"There are plenty of people holding flashlights casting shadows, offering directions. Perhaps it's best if you light your own way." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

When we allow ourselves to be honest and visible to those around us it opens up the door for deeper connections and understanding...sometimes I hear the words 'Me too, I thought I was the only one'. So try it, it takes practice and find your courage to be yourself." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"We already have so much abundance. We truly do. We need not search too far. It is within all of us. The reason we fail to recognize this is because we haven't quite mastered the art of being. For abundance to prevail, we must practice love, gratitude, acceptance and compassion." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"We are born knowing exactly who we are. Over the years we have abandoned or neglected much of what we know about ourselves. Fortunately, the good news is it's never too late to rediscover who we are." ~Di Riseborough

"When we hold onto that hurt it is not affecting the person who hurt us. They might be totally oblivious to our pain. Part of forgiveness is forgiving yourself first for holding onto so long....you deserve to find happiness and peace. But when you are stuck in the pain it is not possible to achieve them...the road to peace and happiness in your life is doing what I call 'the work'..your own healing journey." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"When you accept somebody into your life you also accept their past too. Be careful not to use it against them as you were not there then. Instead listen with compassion and understanding and offer support when asked. If it creates an emotional response for you then that might be something that is being reflected about your past and an opportunity to do some soul searching within. What has been your experience ?" ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"When you come from a heart-centered place rather than a head space, your life will be abundantly Blessed." ~Di Riseborough-Intuitive Life Strategist

"You only have so much emotional energy each day. Don't spend it on things that don't matter or on people who don't value you or your time. Be discerning." ~Di Riseborough

"The grand essentials of life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for." ~Thomas Chalmers ~♥~

OTHERS

"By the very constitution of our nature, moral evil is its own cure." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"Enthusiasm is a virtue rarely to be met with in seasons of calm and unruffled prosperity. It flourishes in adversity, kindles in the hour of danger, and awakens to deeds of renown. The terror of persecution only serve to quicken the energy of its purposes. It swells in proud integrity, and, great in the purity of its cause, it can scatter defiance amidst hosts of enemies." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"Even in the fiercest uproar of our stormy passions, conscience, though in her softest whispers, gives to the supremacy of rectitude the voice of an undying testimony." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"Every man is a missionary, now and forever, for good or for evil, whether he intends or designs it or not. He may be a blot, radiating his dark influence outward to the very circumference of society; or he may be a blessing, spreading benediction over the length and breadth of the world: but a blank he cannot be. There are no moral blanks; there are no neutral characters. We are either the sower that sows and corrupts, or the light that splendidly illuminates, and the salt that silently operates; but being dead or alive, every man speaks." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"His eye is upon every hour of my existence. His spirit is intimately present with every thought of my heart. His inspiration gives birth to every purpose within me. His hand impresses a direction on every footstep of my goings. Every breath I inhale is drawn by an energy which God deals out to me." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers: Discourses on Mod. Astron., Disc. III.

"I have no sympathy whatever with those who would grudge our workmen and our common people the very highest acquisitions which their taste, or their time, or their inclinations, would lead them to realize; for next to the salvation of their souls, I certainly say that the object of my fondest aspirations is the moral and intellectual, and, as a sure consequence of this, the economical, advancement of the working classes,—the one object which of all others in the wide range of political speculation is the one which should be the dearest to the heart of every philanthropist and every patriot." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"If it be the characteristic of a worldly man than he desecrates what is holy, it should be of the Christian to consecrate what is secular, and to recognise a present and presiding divinity in all things." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"In the wildest anarchy of man’s insurgent appetites and sins, there is still a reclaiming voice; a voice which, even when in practice disregarded, it is impossible not to own; and to which, at the very moment that we refuse our obedience, we find that we cannot refuse the homage of what ourselves do feel and acknowledge to be the best, the highest principles of our nature." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"Infidelity gives nothing in return for what it takes away. What, then is it worth? Everything valuable has a compensating power. Not a blade of grass that withers, or the ugliest weed that is flung away to rot or die, but reproduces something." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"Infidelity is one of the false coinages - a mass of base money that will not pass current with any heart that loves truly, or any head that thinks correctly. It is a fearless blindness of the soul." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"Man should trust in God as if God did all, and yet labor as earnestly as if he himself did all." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"Music is the language of praise." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"One of the most essential preparations for eternity is delight in praising God; a higher acquirement, I do think, than even delight and devotedness in prayer." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"That even among the most hackneyed and most hardened of malefactors there is still about them a softer part which will give way to the demonstrations of tenderness; that this one ingredient of a better character is still found to survive the dissipation of all the others, that, fallen as a brother may be from the moralities which at one time adorned him, the manifested good will of his fellow-man still carries a charm and an influence along with it; and that, therefore, there lies in this an operation which, as no poverty can vitiate, so no depravity can extinguish."
~Dr. Thomas Chalmers: Sermons on Depravity, Serm. X.

"The beauty of holiness has done more, and will do more, to regenerate the world and bring in everlasting righteousness than all the other agencies put together. It has done more to spread religion in the world, than all that has ever been preached or written on the evidences of Christianity." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"The sum and substance of the preparation needed for a coming eternity is that we believe what the Bible tells us, and do what the Bible bids us." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"There is a set of people whom I cannot bear—the pinks of fashionable propriety,—whose every word is precise, and whose every movement is unexceptionable, but who, though versed in all the categories of polite behaviour, have not a particle of soul or cordiality about them. We allow that their manners may be abundantly correct. There may be eloquence in every gesture, and gracefulness in every position; not a smile out of place, and not a step that would not bear the measurement of the severest scrutiny. This is all very fine: but what I want is the heart and gaiety of social intercourse; the frankness that spreads ease and animation around it; the eye that speaks affability to all, that chases timidity from every bosom, and tells every man in the company to be confident and happy. This is what I conceive to be the virtue of the text, and not the sickening formality of those who walk by rule, and would reduce the whole of human life to a wire-bound system of misery and constraint." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers.


PERSPECTIVES

"Nothing seems much clearer than the natural direction of charity. Would we all but relieve, according to the measure of our means, those objects immediately within the range of our personal knowledge, how much of the worst evil of poverty might be alleviated! Very poor people, who are known to us to have been decent, honest, and industrious, when industry was in their power, have a claim on us, founded on our knowledge, and on vicinity and neighbourhood, which have in themselves something sacred and endearing to every good heart. One cannot, surely, always pass by, in his walks for health, restoration, or delight, the lone wayside beggar without occasionally giving him an alms. Old, care-worn, pale, drooping, and emaciated creatures, who pass us by without looking beseechingly at us, or even lifting up their eyes from the ground, cannot often be met with without exciting an interest in us for their silent and unobtrusive sufferings or privations. A hovel, here and there, round and about our own comfortable dwelling, attracts our eyes by some peculiar appearance of penury, and we look in, now and then, upon its inmates, cheering their cold gloom with some small benefaction. These are duties all men owe to distress: they are easily discharged; and even such tender mercies are twice blessed." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

"Thousands of men breathe, move, and live, pass off the stage of life, and are heard of no more. Why? they do not partake of good in the world, and none were blessed by them; none could point to them as the means of their redemption; not a line they wrote, not a word they spake, could be recalled; and so they perished: their light went out in darkness, and they were not remembered more than insects of yesterday. Will you thus live and die, O man immortal? Live for something. Do good, and leave behind you a monument of virtue that the storm of time can never destroy. Write your name, in kindness, love, and mercy, on the hearts of thousands you come in contact with year by year: you will never be forgotten. No! your name, your deeds, will be as legible on the hearts you leave behind you as the stars on the brow of evening. Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven." ~Dr. Thomas Chalmers

VERSES

"Love is something you and I must have.
We must have it because our spirit feeds upon it.
We must have it because without it we become weak and faint.
Without love our self-esteem weakens. Without it our courage fails.
Without love we can no longer look confidently at the world.
We turn inward and begin to feed upon our own personalities, and little by little we destroy ourselves...
With it we are creative.
With it we march tirelessly.
With it, and with it alone, we are able to sacrifice for others."
~Chief Dan George
