All of life is a first. Even if you’ve done something before, you’ve never done it now, on this day, feeling this way, in these conditions, with these particular limitations and advantages. Let that awareness be grace. Let it be a peace that surpasses all understanding. Let it be the seed of kindness, toward yourself and everybody else. And let it be just enough to help you tolerate the discomfort of being fully alive.

– Dr. Kelly Flanagan, “The Most Important Choice You’ll Ever Make

No matter how spiritual we are, our lives will have challenges. We will always run into people that are different than we are, but the true challenge may be in finding ways to be at peace with this process. Rather than give in to the fight or flight response that comes from our animal nature, we can find new ways to evolve together into higher more beautiful expressions of ourselves, realizing, embracing and celebrating the beauty of diversity and the strength it offers for the future.

from Daily Om

“You people with hearts,” he said once, “have something to guide you, and need never do wrong; but I have no heart, and so I must be very careful.”  – L. Frank Baum, The Wizard of Oz

In oneself lies the whole world, and if you know how to LOOK and LEARN, then the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either that key or the door to open…except YOURSELF.

– Krishnamurti

… making a decision was only the beginning of things.  When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.

– Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

When at a crossroads of choice with two options, neither ideal, surrender and go within your soul where the third option awaits you.

Robert Ohotto

“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself, or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow, or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.”
— Wayne Dyer
