Remember also that in every failure and success there is always a reason. When God closes one door, He opens another.” ~Cathy Marquez

"The boy is a natural spectator; he watches parades, fires, fights, football games, automobiles and planes with equal fervor. However, he will not watch a clock. A boy is a piece of skin stretched over an appetite. However, he eats only when he's awake. Boys imitate their Dads in spite of all efforts to teach them good manners. Boys are very durable.

Anthon St. Maarten Quotes

"Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave. Be strong. We need all hands on deck." ~Anthon St. Maarten

"If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summer’s day. Nothing stimulates our appetite for the simple joys of life more than the starvation caused by sadness or desperation. In order to complete our amazing life journey successfully, it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse." ~Anthon St. Maarten

"Sensitive people are often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world." -Anthon St. Maarten

"There is no need for us all to be alike and think the same way, neither do we need a common enemy to force us to come together and reach out to each other. If we allow ourselves and everyone else the freedom to fully individuate as spiritual beings in human form, there will be no need for us to be forced by worldly circumstances to take hands and stand together. Our souls will automatically want to flock together, like moths to the flame of our shared Divinity, yet each with wings covered in the glimmering colours and unique patterns of our individual human expression." ~Anthon St. Maarten

Margo Denise Wilson Quotes

"According to the Bible, God issued out some dictates after the flood in Noah's day, that set curses on certain races for their behavior even after the profound effect of a worldwise flood on ALL races. Those dictates came from God and have not changed to this day. There is not equality of character in all peoples (learned behavior with some basis in inherited qualities), nor should it be that anyone (all people are sinners, breaking God's law) should FEEL superior than another neighbor for God expects all men to love their enemies, pray for those that despitefully use them and persecute them, but in no way to be a part of joining in bad behavior, false doctrine, or shameful practices, no matter the race of people." ~Margo Wilson, FB

"Curiosity is what drives a child to want to learn to play a musical instrument, and exposure to those that already play is an excellent way to inspire that curiosity; any time one can do that for a child is to give a future blessing to a child that cannot be obtained via television, CD player or a radio or movie: hands on is always best, too." -Margo Wilson

"The Golden Rule is ALWAYS the basis of a GOOD teacher, and anger, impatience, insult, malice, lack of self-control, arrogance and the like that basis of a teacher that cannot get his/her topic of understanding across to the student because the teacher themself is IN THE WAY of UNDERSTANDING - in fact, the teacher cannot teach what they do not FIRST understand themselves." ~Margo Wilson

Sheryl Paul - love


"True love has nothing to do with longing or drama. Real love is two available people standing face to face willing to be vulnerable, honest, and committed. There's nothing dramatic about that and it usually doesn't induce butterflies. If you still feel butterflies several years into a relationship, it's likely because you're the pursuer in the pursuer-distancer dynamic that characterizes most relationships." ~Sheryl Paul

Elaine Newkirk - idea

"If you have an idea to do something great, just do it. Don't wait. Just do it." ~Elaine Newkirk

Dr. Brian Weiss Quotes

"If you can leave a relationship with love, empathy, and compassion, without any thoughts of revenge, hatred, or fear, that is how you let go. You can choose to no longer have a relationship with that person or persons." ~Brian L. Weiss

“Inner peace is impossible without patience. Wisdom requires patience. Spiritual growth implies the mastery of patience. Patience allows the unfolding of destiny to proceed at its won unhurried pace.” ~Brian L. Weiss from My Renewed Mind

"Meditation can open up possibilities for spiritual experiences, almost as if the subconscious mind is itself the gateway to the eternal dimension. This gateway is never wide open, and there usually aren’t any signs above it advising us where the road will lead at any given moment. Opening this gate isn’t merely a matter of finding a key or saying some magic word—it’s more like the idea that guided the ancient alchemists: the process of transforming and being transformed. Another way of looking at it is to say that the mind becomes a passage, and the person meditating turns into an individual who’s able to recognize the passage and move through it into deeper, more transcendent states." ~Dr. Brian Weiss

"People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing." ~Dr. Brian Weiss

"People do not need saving. People need love, support, and encouragement that they can withstand any trials and will always come out stronger, wiser, and more compassionate. I cannot shelter anyone from the storms of life, or they will never grow, learn, and expand." ~Brian L. Weiss

"The past is finished. Learn from it and let it go. As for the future, it isn't even here yet — of course you should plan for it, but don't waste your time worrying about it. Worrying is worthless. When you stop focusing on what has already happened and what may never happen, then you'll be in the present moment. Then you'll begin to experience joy in life." ~Dr. Brian Weiss

"The practice of meditation can, and should, be focused on the present. On the one hand, we silence the disturbing voices that bind us to the past. On the other, we must block the often frightening pictures that we ourselves create to represent our concerns about the future. Since our own fears create these pictures, they're neither comforting nor pleasant—and since there are

countless possible futures that we have available to us, these "pictures" may not necessarily manifest as the actual future. Many of our personal conflicts and tensions can be resolved when meditation allows us to concentrate fully on the present. This is how we develop the ability to focus on what's important, minimizing extraneous thoughts. The practice of meditation needs persistence and tenacity, as negative thoughts may return repeatedly, often through mere force of habit. The past is finished. Learn from it and let it go. As for the future, it isn't even here yet—of course you should plan for it, but don't waste your time worrying about it. Worrying is worthless. When you stop focusing on what has already happened and what may never happen, then you'll be in the present moment. Then you'll begin to experience joy in life." ~Dr. Brian Weiss

Adyashanti Quotes

"In Liberation, you stand alone. You stand alone because you need no supports of any kind. You need no supports because you have realized that the very notion of a separate you no longer exists; that there is nothing to support; that the whole ego experience was a flimsy illusion. So you stand alone but never, never lonely because everywhere you look, all you see is That, and You are That." ~Adyashanti

Have you ever heard
the wonderful silence
just before the dawn?
Or the quiet and calm
just as a storm ends?
Or perhaps you know the silence
when you haven't the answer
to a question you've been asked,
or the hush of a country road at night,
or the expectant pause of a room full of people
when someone is just about to speak,
or, most beautiful of all,
the moment after the door closes
and you're alone in the whole house?
Each one is different, you know,
and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.
~Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth


"Silence is balm, friend and armored knight.
