A Quote by Julia Butterfly Hill on prayer, love, dark hole, earth, creation, species, ability, and life

One day, through my prayers, an overwhelming amount of love started flowing into me, filling up the dark hole that threatened to consume me. I suddenly realized that what I was feeling was the love of the Earth, the love of Creation. Every day we, as a species, do so much to destroy Creation's ability to give us life. But that Creation continues to do everything in its power to give us life anyway. And that's true love.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on ability, creator, god, divine, inspiration, inventor, intuition, art, creation, and creativity

Every really able man, in whatever direction he works - a man of large affairs, an inventor, a statesman, an orator, a poet, a painter - if you talk sincerely with him, considers his work, however much admired, as far short of what it should be. What is this Better, this flying Ideal, but the perpetual promise of his Creator?

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on ego, identification, possessions, work, social status, recognition, knowledge, education, appearance, ability, relationships, history, beliefs, and you

The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, personal and family history, belief systems, and often political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.

A Quote by Julia Cameron on ability and empowerment

I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow.
