“It’s your fate from birth to make your mark upon the earth.”
“Comparing is addiction to loosing” ― Agapi Stasinopoulos
When we measure our worth by comparing ourselves to others or what others have or don’t have, we lose out on honoring who we truly are and honoring our worth.
When we compare we lose, since we will never be exactly the same as anyone and we lose out on expressing our uniqueness and expression of spirit.
When we compare we risk being addicted to thinking our worth is outside ourselves and loose the opportunity to truly value all we have to offer the world. Our worth and value is inside not outside.
When we compare we lose.
“The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller
“Craft is about what humans can make in the world that technology can’t. It is a human to human connection, rather than a machine to human connection. Craft is born into the human experience rather than manufactured for it. Craft survives beyond the short term utility of manufacturing. Craft expresses the human spirit and coddles joy to be experienced by others.” – Keith Engelhardt
What will you craft (birth) into the world today?
“If you are not in the arena also getting your ass kicked, I’m not interested in your feedback” – Brene Brown
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt
“I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be, to inspire me and not terrify me.” ― Tracee Ellis Ross
In order to explore or obtain something new in our lives, we need to create space. You cannot pour more water into a full cup it overflowing. Nor can we effectively grow and evolve without the space to do so.
Yet we most often do so. In nature and the universe there is more space than matter, it is out of that space that creation occurs.
The energy of the mind is the essence of life.
“The energy you bring, positive or negative, dictates your perceptions, receptions and radiations. “ – T.F. Hodge
Energy is precious, use your energy to build not to destroy.
Gratitude is not something you have to express. If you are filled with gratitude for all the things that contribute to your life, it will melt your very being. – Sadhguru
“The only thing worse than being blind, is having sight but no vision” – Helen Keller
“To have passed through life and never experienced solitude is to have never known oneself. To have never known oneself is to have never known anyone.” ― Joseph Krutch
We often avoid solitude because we fear loneliness, or that we might miss out on something. or we are too busy. We can avoid solitude to dodge a chaotic inner life by filling it with more noise.
We may even be hiding from ourselves.
Avoiding solitude can have a cost and result in lack of meaning and connection, or a loss of perspective.
When the soul is ready to reveal itself, it will do two things: get rid of the people in your life who are hindering your progress and force you into taking the time to reflect upon your life in solitude.
What is your number one reason for avoiding solitude?
“Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you.” – Jim Carrey
“The MIND is EVERYTHING. What you THINK you BECOME.” – Buddha
“At the center of the Universe is a loving heart that continues to beat and that wants the best for every person. Anything that we can do to help foster the intellect and spirit and emotional growth of our fellow human beings, that is our job. Those of us who have this particular vision must continue against all odds. Life is for service.” – Fred Rogers
