crisis

A Quote by Mark Hathaway on crisis, choice, and great turning

Times of crisis can be creative times, times when new visions and new possibilities emerge. The Chinese ideogram for crisis, wei-ji, is composed of the characters for danger and opportunity (represented by an unstoppable spear and an impenetrable shield). This is not simply a contradiction or paradox; the very dangers we face stimulate us to look deeper, seek alternatives, and take advantage of opportunities. Our own word—crisis—derives from the Greek word krinein, meaning “to separate.” It implies a choice between distinct alternatives. If we do not act to change the situation of deepening poverty and ecological destruction, we will be choosing to continue a descent toward the abyss of despair.

But another choice is also possible: we have the opportunity to choose a new way of living on our planet, a new way of living with each other and with the other creatures of our world.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on decisions, crisis, and love

The Warrior of Light holds the sword, deciding what to do and not do in any circumstances. There are moments when life leads to a crisis and we are forced to divorce ourselves from things we have always loved.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on crisis, power, change, purpose, meaning, transformation, and life

It is a rare person who can pierce the veil between ordinarly life, consumed with matters of physical survival, and pursuit of the empowered path of purpose and meaning unless he or she is motivated by a crisis. Most often we require the failure of some system of power that we rely on before we take action.

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 Sol Luckman on luke soloman, begging, money, survival, human, humanity, human nature, generosity, crisis, good samaritan, selfish, greedy, philanthropy, philanthropist, and goodwill

It takes money to make money, even begging. Humans are herd animals. If a stranger’s bleeding to death beside the road, most people won’t stop to offer a Band-Aid. But get the ball rolling with a couple Good Samaritans, and before you know it you’ve got more eager philanthropists than you know what to do with.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on crisis, opportunity, surrender, ego, fear, torsion, energy, unconditional love, home, 2012, and mayan calendar

The crisis, as well as the opportunity, of our time is to surrender our ego and conditioned fear mechanisms to the primary torsion energy of unconditional love that is seeking to evolve us and is calling us as a species home.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on luke soloman, crisis, deep doodoo, clarity, difficulty, challenge, test, and initiation

My throat was parched and my entire body was leprous with cuts, yet my mind was exceedingly clear. I knew I was in deep s**t. I didn’t know how deep--just that I still hadn’t touched bottom.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on karma, hologram, holograhic universe, duality, responsibility, creation, co-creation, creativity, source, disharmony, disease, illness, transformation, crisis, and opportunity

Contrary to popular misconception, karma has nothing to do with punishment and reward. It exists as part of our holographic universe’s binary or dualistic operating system only to teach us responsibility for our creations—and all things we experience are our creations. When these creations are out of tune with Source, they often manifest in the disharmony known as disease. This can occur not only in individuals but in entire civilizations. In both cases, disease, which is typically considered a crisis, simultaneously serves as a powerful stimulus for transformation and transcendence.
