Lord, take me where you want me to go,
let me meet who you want me to meet,
tell me what to say,
and keep me out of your way.
- Father Mychal Judge

We are not responding to this instant if we are judging any aspect of it.

The ego looks for what to criticize. This always involves comparing with the past. But love looks upon the world peacefully and accepts.

The ego searches for shortcomings and weaknesses. Love watches for any sign of strength. It sees how far each one has come and not how far he had to go. How simple it is to love, and exhausting it is always to find fault, for every time we see a fault we think something needs to be done about it. Love knows that nothing is ever needed but more love.

It is what we all do with our hearts that affects others most deeply. It is not the movements of our body or the words within our mind that transmits love. We love from heart to heart.
- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Over four days, 50 speakers each take an 18-minute slot, and there are many shorter pieces of content, including music, performance and comedy. There are no breakout groups. Everyone shares the same experience. It shouldn’t work, but it does. It works because all of knowledge is connected. Every so often it makes sense to emerge from the trenches we dig for a living, and ascend to a 30,000-foot view, where we see, to our astonishment, an intricately interconnected whole.

- in reference to the TED conference (copied from their website)

They must find it difficult... those who have taken authority as the truth, rather than truth as the authority.
- Gerald Massey, Egyptologist

Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
- Picasso

I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist.  I am willing to fight for peace.  Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.
- Albert Einstein

Open your eyes, look within.  Are you satisfied with the life you're living?
- Bob Marley

You can fool some people sometimes, but you can't fool all the people all the time.  So now we see the light.  We gonna stand up for your for our right.
- Bob Marley

Don't gain the world and lose your soul.  Wisdom is better than silver and gold.
- Bob Marley

Here is my dilemma.
Please help me understand.
Your Love is a healer,
your Love is a wise master,
your Love is radiant,
your Love is delicate and
is soft in its essence.
I would gladly endure all this fire,
all this yearning,
all this burning,
for your Love,
But if your Love is so pleasant,
why does it hurt so much?
- Rumi

Love is best when mixed with anguish.
In our town,
we won't call you a Lover
if you escape the pain.
Look for Love in this way,
welcome it to your soul,
and watch your spirit fly away in ecstasy.
- Rumi

There is a candle in your heart,

ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul,
ready to be filled.
You feel it, don't you?
You feel the separation
from the Beloved.
Invite Him to fill you up,
embrace the fire.
Remind those who tell you otherwise that
Love comes to you of its own accord,
and the yearning for it cannot be learned in any school.
- Rumi

You think you are alive because you breath air?
Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way.
- Rumi

As for myself, the only mother I know is Love.
Long ago, since the beginning of time,
it was Love who gave birth to me.
A hundred blessings to my true mother.
- Rumi

Let the beauty you Love do what you do,
there are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.
- Rumi

Life has its own intelligence. We think that we need to understand, we need to sort through our feelings, we need to do this, we need to do that. We think we need to find clarity by our own efforts. But that is not how it works.
- Lee Lozowick

You will not find the ultimate meaning by seeking it; pain is pain, beauty is beauty, awe in front of nature is awe in front of nature. If you take is as it is, the meaning will become obvious. In other words, everything that you accept as it is is revealed to you in its totality. If you look for something with a preconceived idea of what you are going to find, you may find what you are looking for but it will not allow you to truly appreciate the totality of what you are entering into. All we have to do is to step back and let the Intelligence of Life manifest itself. Then everything is clear.
- Lee Lozowick

Blue Topaz: the frequency of this stone releases fear. Before you can do anything you must release your fear so that has to be the first step. The energy that releases the fear of moving forward.
Imagine a life with no fear of moving forward. What would you be? You would be balanced, you would be able to manifest your dreams. Think about that. I believe it's possible.
- Shankari

Allow the energy of fearlessness to enter every cell of your body.
Clearing away your fear, clearing away all the parts of you that are not allowing you to experience success of every level.
What is success? Success is integration. Today, now. Integrating all the parts of yourself. Loving the parts of you that you hate.
Letting go of blame, letting go of resentment. Allowing all the fear of not being loved to slide away.
That's it, you are there and now it is so.
- Shankari

She is a mysterious being; amazing being of light embodied in a field of physical energy that is anything but attractive and yet everybody loves her. It is her Spirit. She doesn't know she's ugly. She doesn't have any idea that she's anything other than pure Love herself. Love comes from within and is expressed without and it simply doesn't matter what you look like, it's what you give, that is what determines what you receive. She taught me that Love is a state of being and in itself attracts Love.
- Shankari

Leave it alone... Let them find you. We don't have to seek anymore, just let it find you. That's what enquiry is about. You ask and the answer will surface, because the question is the open arms to recieve it. It's like a welcome mat.
- Byron Katie

I trust everyone completely, totally... to do what they do.
- Byron Katie

The fear of death is the last smokescreen for the fear of Love.  And that's where the self is dissolved.  Fully consumed as itself.  There's no self in it.  It is pure awake; aware.  Fearless.  It's self love. That simple, it's self love.   And that's connection.
- Byron Katie

Reality is the playground of our dreams.
- unknown

It is easy to block out the things that upset us. That's what most people do.
(from a movie trailer, can't remember which one!)

May lack and struggle only serve to make you stronger.
- unknown

The important thing is not that we can live on hope alone,
but that life is not worth living without it.
- unknown

You can't always choose your path in life but you can always choose the manner in which you walk it.
- unknown

The arrows that pierce you the most are the ones released from your own bow. Self-doubt and self-hatred - these are the biggest obstables in life. Learning to love yourself is essential if you want to be somebody in life. And that's not just "Pollyanna" self-helo talk either. The Light of the Creator is within you. It is your true essence. Recognizing this is not arrogant or egotistical. On the contrary, not recognizing your inner light is a denial of the Creator's Light. Today, cast yourself in a favorable Light. See yourself as the good person you truly are.

Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short
Wear shirts and boots, because it's OK to be a boy
But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
Because you think that being a girl is degrading
But secretly you'd love to know what it's like.
- From Song "What It Feels Like For A Girl" by Madonna

I've just begun, it's like the tip of the iceberg.
I have such a long journey ahead of me
and where it goes, I don't know.
Hopefully closer to the truth.
- Madonna

It is funny how the body goes along with it but the soul knows that it shouldn't.
- Douglas

Giving creates more energy.
- Tristan

carry me away
to a place so far away
where i can dream
without doing

i know you want to follow me
await, what for
carry me away

why do you hesitate
why force me to do alone
what I have been unable to do

no longer need to carry it alone
bring light upon this yearning
await no more

i know i hesitate
perhaps it is all my fault
but only out of restraint

take me with you
into the night
into the morn
i don't care where

listen as though every sound
unheard would ache
a million aches
in fact it does - that is why i listen

believe as though a thought
were insignificant beyond belief
because it is - this is what i know

knowing is believing - or is it
i don't know
i would rather not think
about it too much
this i do know

it can be known -
but not in the way that you think

close your eyes - but only slightly
yes, like a squint
let enough light in to remain awake,
and cast the rest away

do hesitate, and if you have to,
but know that hesitation
only prolongs that agony

instead enter that which
has awaited for you so patiently

caress it with your eyes
and it will enchant you

even if just for an instant
if you are not doing it,
then neither am i

carry me away
i will await until you are ready.

- Angelo

People come into your life for a REASON, a SEASON or a LIFETIME
When you know which one it is for a person, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
They may seem like a Godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take
a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered, and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. 
They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

LIFE TIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons: things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
