Thought for Today - Resolve Conflict

"There has probably never been a time where there has been so much fear and conflict across the world, not just across oceans and borders but across the breakfast table. In fact many now prefer conflict to peace, as they become addicted to the actions of anger and aggression, and the adrenaline rush which results. They don't really want conflict to end, in fact, they will say that some conflict is good to get things done and stimulate change. They are not aware that they are killing themselves. All conflict is simply a symptom of attachment to a position. And as we know, this generates fear, and fear, if allowed to stay, eventually kills it's host. All solutions are based on detachment or letting go. But that will be difficult until we can see that all possession is an illusion, that we have nothing to lose and that there are no victories in winning." ~Thought for Today-UK

"Reading is a pleasure of the mind, which means that it is a little like a sport: your eagerness and knowledge and quickness count for something. The fun of reading is not that something is told to you, but that you stretch your mind.

ANNE MURRAY- You Light Up My Life

Jearim Dancel - equals as God's creation

"It takes an open mind to see past differences and accept others for who they truly are. For how can one hope to see another person when our eyes are blinded by fear, distrust, and/or a sense of superiority over another. How can one hope to learn from another when our heads are filled with what we "think we know" because of what we were "taught" (by our own society). Let us all learn to "unlearn" and empty our overflowing cups, meaning our prejudice. Only then can we approach another and play with each other as equals, as all God's creation, under the same blue sky." ~Jearim Dancel, FB, 29 July 2011

Thought for Today - Spirituality in Daily Life

"Spirituality is not a luxury, something for people who have nothing else to do but sit around and meditate. In fact, it is the lack of spirituality in daily life that is causing the breakdown and destruction of our planet and our civilisation. As we restore spirituality we can find methods of working together to create better selves and a better world. Thus we can see, looking at our global relationships, that spirituality is an integral part of life." ~Thought for Today-UK

"The world is so exquisite, with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better, it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look Death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides." ~Carl Sagan

Thought for Today - Calming The Mind

"Don't give your mind permission to get disturbed. A disturbed mind is easily influenced. This will cost you your peace. Learn to maintain your peace by freeing yourself from attachments. Competing or comparing yourself with others will not allow you to focus inwards. An inner focus allows you to keep your eye on your higher self. Remember your original nature. It allows you to forge a link with the Divine. Then it becomes easy to recognise useless thoughts and replace them with a spiritual perspective. A calm mind is not just peaceful, it is focused, self-directing and Divine." ~Thought for Today-UK

I hope you find that person." ~Anon

“I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others to respect my feelings, even if I respect theirs. Being a good person doesn’t guarantee that others will be good people, too.

"I love being free, it's the best way to be." ~Anon

"I love when you become so close with someone, that you can see parts of each other in one another. You begin to say the same things, steal lines from each other and have a similar sense of humor. You can exchange an inside joke with just a glance. You don’t even have to talk because you have such a strong connection with them. You can sit in comfortable silence but also talk for hours. It’s really hard to find that kind of compatibility." ~Anon

"If you’re looking for a happy ending and can’t seem to find one, maybe it’s time to start looking for a new beginning. Brush yourself off and accept that sometimes life can be difficult. That’s how you learn. The strongest people out there – the ones who laugh the hardest with a genuine smile – are the same people who have fought the toughest battles. They’re smiling because they’ve decided that they’re not going to let anything hold them down, they’re moving on to a new beginning." ~Anon

“If you’re not happy, then something is wrong. A person comes into the world as a happy being, yet over time, the happiness fades away and they find themselves in this bubble of anxiety and misery all the time. And it’s a comfortable place to stay, so they end up hanging out in this bubble for years and years before it suddenly dawns on them that life is meant to be happy. And, it is. It’s just that they’re too busy getting caught up in worry and stress to notice that life is magnificent and beautiful. Being alive is good. Being alive should already make you happy.” ~Anon

"In the end…It’s not about who broke your heart. It's about who mended it. It's not about the times you put your self esteem in the hands of others. But instead, the days where you knew worth. It’s not about those who let you down, but rather those who always held you up. It’s not about the many people who desired you. It’s about the ones that valued you.
