A Quote by Nelson Mandela on courage, triumph, fear, and brave

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

A Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn on non-doing, courage, stillness, activity, and purpose

Non-doing has nothing to do with being indolent or passive. Quite the contrary. It takes great courage and energy to cultivate non-doing, both in stillness and in activity. Nor is it easy to make a special time for non-doing and to keep at it in the face of everything in our lives which needs to be done.

A Quote by David Spangler on crisis, compassion, courage, creativity, evil, crimes, consciousness, and calling

No one wishes for crisis, but when crises come, they can call forth our best impulses, those of compassion, courage, creativity, and community.  And if there are crimes and evils hidden in the dark places of our society and the darker places of our consciousnesses, all the better they come to the surface to be seen, understood, confronted, and healed.  If our generation is called to bear a burden of that healing, it is a powerful calling and honor and one within our capability.

A Quote by Marianne on courage, chang, love, comittment, compaswion, and wisdom

Let my life be an example In my Successes and my Failures. Within me is the light of God, the wisdom of the ages if I can just have the courage to trust and believe.
To look for that same God light in everyone I meet.
Within me is the teachings of Buddha, Jesus, Gandhi, Mother Theresa and of all those who went before me;
speaking of Love, Peace and Compassion.

It isn't the easy thing that is the right thing...
It is not in my silent acceptance of what I know
my heart that is wrong that will make a difference.
It is by having the Courage;
to look into the mirror of my life,
and hold my life up as a mirror to others;.
It is by my Word, Deed and Example
that I will change the world.

A Quote by Jennifer Welwood on experience, aloneness, loneliness, connection, fear, courage, loss, gifts, fleeing, welcoming, and non-duality

Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;
Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within;
Opening to my loss,
I am given unimaginable gifts;
Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.

Each condition I flee from pursues me.
Each condition I welcome transforms me
And becomes itself transformed…
