A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on happiness, action, being, and doing

In the true order of things one does not do something in order to be happy—one is happy and, hence, does something. One does not do some things in order to be compassionate, one is compassionate and, hence, acts in a certain way.

Neale Donald Walsch

A Quote by Jack on doing, simple, passion, courage, and transformation

Some days, it’s not about passion and courage. It’s not about heroism and drama. It’s not about slaying dragons or conjuring exotic visions. Some days, it’s not about transcendence or transformation, not about being better than anyone who came before you.

Some days, it’s simply about delicious acts of doing simple things, simply.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on doing, soul, river, joy, action, and feeling

When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
When actions come from another section,
the feeling disappears.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on how, what, and doing

"How" is always more important that "what." See if you can give much more attention to the doing than to the result that you want to achieve through it.
