Just like a sunbeam can’t separate itself from the sun, and a wave can’t separate itself from the ocean, we can’t separate ourselves from one another. We are all part of a vast sea of love, one indivisible divine mind. ~ Marianne Williamson ~
My mind is a center of Divine operation. The Divine operation is always for expansion and fuller expression, and this means the production of something beyond what has gone before, something entirely new, not included in past experience, though proceeding out of it by orderly sequence of growth.
Therefore, since the Divine cannot change it’s inherent nature, it must operate in the same manner in me; Consequently in my own special world, in which I am the center, it will move forward to produce new conditions, always in advance of any that have gone before. ~ Thomas Troward ~
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves. ~ Buddha ~
Oh, dear Father God, I come—
As I always come to Thee— And, with all my love, I bring
My wholehearted, earnest plea.
Not for wealth nor jewels, rare, Do I ask of Thee each day,
But for that which I so need, I do ask of Thee; and, pray,
Give Thy richest gift to me:
Give, oh, give me peace of mind!
Nothing else can take its place… Peace, sweet peace, Lord, let me find!
~ Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, “Peace of Mind” (1940s) ~
Pour some water into a tub and stir it up. Now try as hard as you can to calm the water with your hands; you will succeed in agitating it further. Let it stand undisturbed a while, and it will calm down by itself. The human brain works much the same way. ~Koichi Tohei, Ki in Daily Life ~
