Pen to paper,
Like every other,
Your life between a three-inch fine narrow line,
The ink is dry.
Mark the day,
The collapse of illusions,
A price paid for ‘freedom’,
To a bunch of well-paid, well-dressed hyenas.
Judgement in the hands of those caught red-handed,
On a race to push more papers,
A plastic stamp manufactured by the hands of children.
One pound with ferocity,
Just another number,
And then you’re single,
Finding solace in the mysterious deep blue sea.
Communication is more then speech. It’s a touch, it’s showing love, it’s simply looking into someone’s eyes, it’s a genuine smile and it’s simply affection. — Patrick Roberts
If your primary goal is to be approved of, then you will not take risks in life, you will not speak up, and you will just blend in just like so many others. Change the way you think and watch what happens as the world will open up to you. — Patrick Roberts
When I think about what really makes me happy, what I really crave, I come up with a very different list: concentrated, purposeful work, especially creative work; being with people I love; feeling like I’m part of something larger. Meaning, connectedness, doing strenuously what you do well: not sights, not thrills, and not even pleasures, as welcome as they are. Not passivity, not letting the world come in and tickle you, but creativity, curiosity, altruism, engagement, craft. Raising children, or teaching students, or hanging out with friends. Playing music, not listening to it. Making things, or making them happen. Thinking hard and feeling deeply. — William Deresiewicz
Don’t explain. Your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe you.
If you want work well done, select a busy man — the other kind has no time.
God will not look you over for medals, degrees or diplomas, but for scars.
Men are rich only as they give. He who gives great service gets great rewards.
We work to become, not to acquire.
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience would have achieved success?
There is something that is much more scarce, something finer far, something rarer than ability. It is the ability to recognize ability.
To know when to be generous and when to be firm - this is wisdom.
There is no failure except in no longer trying.
- Elbert Hubbard
A good woman is proud. She respects herself and others. She is aware of who she is. She neither seeks definition from her man, nor does she expect him to read her mind. She is quite capable of articulating her needs.
A good woman is a strong woman. She recognizes that her strength is weakened by attitudes that suggest that she doesn’t need a man. We all know that is not true. We do need lots of loving.
A good woman is hopeful. She is strong enough to make all her dreams come true. She knows love, therefore she gives love. She recognizes that her love has great value and must be reciprocated. If her love is taken for granted, it soon disappears.
A good woman has a dash of inspiration and a dabble of endurance. She knows that she will at times have to inspire others to reach their potential.
A good woman knows her past, understands her present, and forces toward the future.
A good woman knows God. She knows that with Him the world is her playground, but without Him she will just be played with.
A good woman does not live in fear of the future because of her past. Instead, she understands that her life experiences are merely lessons meant to bring her closer to self-knowledge and unconditional self-love.
There is no right or wrong way to tell your improved story. It can be about your past, present, or future experiences. The only criterion that is important is that you be conscious of your intent to tell a better-feeling, improved version of your story. Telling many good-feeling short stories throughout your day will change your point of attraction. Just remember that the story you tell is the basis of your life. So tell it the way you want it to be. — Abraham-Hicks™
Enthusiasm is more important than any other commodity. It will find solutions when none are apparent, and it will achieve success where none is thought possible. — Anonymous
If you are being swept into some current that is not comfortable, or not in harmony with your desire, you must remember that couldn’t happen if you weren’t offering a vibration that matched it in some way. If you’re vibrating differently from that, you’re not having that experience. — Abraham-Hicks
So the big question is, “Well, do I just dump all those unwanted things and try to start fresh?” And we say, no. You just set the Tone, where you are, by looking for things to appreciate. And by setting your Tone in a very clear deliberate way, anything that doesn’t match it gravitates out of your experience, and anything that does match it gravitates into your experience. It is so much simpler than most of you are allowing yourself to believe. — Abraham-Hicks
Just like the wild beasts, you want your own autonomy. You want freedom. You want freedom from negative emotion. You want freedom from somebody telling you what to do. Whether you are consciously aware of it or not—what all of you want is a sense of Well-being. — Abraham-Hicks
When you are in alignment with who-you-really-are, you cannot help but uplift those with whom you come into contact. Your value to those around you hinges upon only one thing: your personal alignment with Source. And the only thing you have to give to another is an example of that alignment—which they may observe, then desire, and then work to achieve—but you cannot give it to them. Everyone is responsible for the thoughts they think and the things that they choose as their objects of attention. — Abraham-Hicks
The question is not whether it’s right or wrong, whether their approach is right or wrong, or whether my approach is right or wrong. The question is: Does their approach feel good to me? And if it doesn’t, then I choose a different approach. — Abraham-Hicks
If you could get to the place where you no longer feel a need to push against anything that you disagree with—you would become in alignment with what you do agree with. Even within your own body, it is your pushing against those things you don’t agree with that causes you to be out of alignment with what you do agree. — Abraham-Hicks
