awareness

A Quote by Meister Eckhart on awareness, church, god, lies, prayer, quiet, and present

A man may go into the field and say his prayer and be aware of God, or he may be in Church and be aware of God; but if he is more aware of Him because he is in a quiet place, that is his own deficiency and not due to God, Who is alike present in all things and places, and is willing to give Himself everywhere so far as lies in Him... He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere.

Meister Eckhart (c.1260 - c.1327)

A Quote by Max Gunther on acceptance, awareness, chance, losing, people, and possibility

It is true that when we take chances, we stand to lose. But it is also true that we will never win anything if we never even enter the game. Lucky people are aware of the possibility of losing, and indeed they may lose often. But since the chances they take are small, the losses tend to be small. By being willing to accept small losses, they put themselves in position to make large gains.

A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on achievement, awareness, belief, brothers, children, church, criticism, destruction, devil, doubt, failure, family, flaws, friendship, giving, hatred, hope, love, men, needs, neighbors, patience, progress, sister, success, s

None of us need one more person bashing or pointing out where we have failed or fallen short. Most of us are already well aware of the areas in which we are weak. What each of us does need is family, friends, employers, and brothers and sisters who support us, who have the patience to teach us, who believe in us, and who believe we're trying to do the best we can, in spite of our weaknesses. What ever happened to giving each other the benefit of the doubt? What ever happened to hoping that another person would succeed or achieve? What ever happened to rooting for each other? [Satan's] tactic is stirring up hatred among the children of men. He loves to see us criticize each other, make fun or take advantage of our neighbor's known flaws, and generally pick on each other. There will always be those in the days ahead who will be inclined to bash ourselves and others, but we cannot allow a heavy, crushing blow to destroy us or deter our personal or church progress.

A Quote by Marion Schoeberlein on awareness, beauty, day, god, love, pain, power, sleep, and world

Sometimes we're not aware of things, The wind chimes in a tree that sings, The first snowfall that casts a spell, We plod along our tired way, Not seeing beauty in each day, Not recognizing God at all, In everything, both great and small. Then suddenly He wakes us from A long sleep of ignoring Him, He nudges us with trials of pain, So that we see His love again. Renewed once more we are aware Of his great power everywhere - Then all the world is new and bright - We see God in a different light!

A Quote by Thomas Malcolm Muggeridge on awareness, colors, darkness, earth, exercise, happiness, laughter, lies, love, meaning, satisfaction, sensuality, present, understanding, and universe

Where, then, does happiness lie? In forgetfulness, not indulgence, of the self. In escape from sensual appetites, not in their satisfaction. We live in a dark, self-enclosed prison, which is all we see or know if our glance is fixed ever downward. To lift it upward, becoming aware of the wide, luminous universe outside - this alone is happiness. At its highest level, such happiness is the ecstasy that mystics have inadequately described. At more humdrum levels, it is human love; the delights and beauties of our dear earth, its colors and shapes and sounds; the enchantment of understanding and laughing, and all other exercise of such faculties as we possess; the marvel of the meaning of everything, fitfully glimpsed, inadequately expounded, but ever present.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on awareness, certainty, good, justice, kindness, practice, talent, and winning

Looking at the championship-winning quarterbacks, Edwards remembered their particular talents: Gifford Nielsen: He was never a very good practice player. He couldn't run, he didn't have a great arm, he was kind of gangly, but he was sharp as a whip. Such a competitor. As good as we ever had. He had the intangibles that certain leaders have. A presence, an awareness. They're best under pressure. Like Mel Tillis, he talks and he stutters, but when he sings it's completely different. It was like that with Giff. On the field, something just clicked.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on angels, awareness, divinity, immortality, energy, practice, service, students, success, teachers, virtue, and wishes

If you wish to become a divine immortal angel, then restore the angelic qualities of your being through virtue and service. This is the only way to gain the attention of the immortals... These angelic teachers cannot be sought out; it is they who seek out the student. When you succeed in connecting your energy with the divine realm through high awareness and the practice of undiscriminating virtue, the transmission of the ultimate subtle truths will follow.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on awareness, direction, observation, purity, present, and wisdom

. . . integral wisdom involves a direct participation in every moment: the observer and the observed are dissolved in the light of pure awareness, and no mental concepts or attitudes are present to dim that light.
