A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on love, future, power, essence, loving, relationship, daphne, rose kingma, presence, joy, and inspiration

The future of love is true love, a great, sweet love that isn’t pain but joy, not small, but vast, not personal but spiritual. This is where we are going; this is our true destination. Our relationships are creating themselves in wild, new, beautiful, and terribly upsetting forms. They are creating demanding experiences that are necessary for us to expand as human beings and as spirits. All our relationships are in the process of melting, if not from without – as the form of marriage itself is dissolving – then from within, where we ourselves are melting down.

The soul is shifting our relationship focus from form to content, from rigidity to flexibility, from containment to expensiveness, from our emotional needs to love.

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on love, future, power, essence, loving, relationship, daphne, rose kingma, presence, joy, and inspiration

Love is a mighty power. It is light. It is the energy of life. It brings us into life and sustains us while we live and breathe. Love is an energy, not a substance. It is essence, not matter. You can’t contain it; you can't put it in a box, but you can feel it, taste it, and know it. Its presence is unmistakable. It is exquisite and profound. And when you are in love, nobody, not your best friend, your parents, or even your own parents, or even your own mind can talk you out of it.

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on love, future, power, essence, loving, relationship, daphne rose kingma, presence, joy, and inspiration

Love is mysterious and beautiful. It makes us happy, gives us hope, allows us to believe that the impossible can happen. And yet, it's inexplicable. It can't be defined or analyzed, catalogued or priced. Its premier property is that when it exists, it can never be mistaken for anything else, and nothing else, no matter how worthwhile or supposedly grand, can ever be passed off as love.

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on love, future, power, essence, loving, relationship, daphne, rose kingma, presence, joy, and inspiration

Relationships are the endless interplay of this vast energy of love and all that occurs in our daily human lives. Our desire to feel this love forever, to be in love always, to repeat and endlessly recapture this ecstatic luminous feeling day by day, year after year, with the person who first inspired it in us is not only why we ‘fall in love’ but also why we choose “to have relationships.” It is also why, when our relationships go sour or grow threadbare, we reminisce about the way they once were. We want to reconnect with love. Our greatest desire is to have our relationships return us again and again to the transforming and beautiful experience of the love that first inspired them and brought them into being. We live to love.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on being, essence, and consciousness

Being is the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.  However, Being is not only beyond but also deep within every form as its innermost invisible and indestructible essence.  This means that is is accessible to you now as your own deepest self, your true nature.  But don't seek to grasp it with your mind.  Don't try to understand it.  You can know it only when the mind is still.

Eckhart Tolle

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on fire, love, and essence

The time has come to turn your heart into a temple of fire. Your essence is gold hidden in dust. To reveal its splendor you need to burn in the fire of love.

A Quote by Lance Secretan on life, dreams, bliss, responsibility, soul, ego, essence, and calling

If there is any point at all to life, surely it is to live out our dreams, to serve, to follow our bliss, to release the music within us, play it with joy and to share it with others? Surely we have a responsibility to finally listen to - and honor - the siren calls of our souls, which have been silenced by our egos throughout our lives? How else can we connect with our essence, the source of our calling?

A Quote by John Coltrane on music, essence, best of what we are, purifying, and feelings

There is never any end
There are always new sounds to imagine
New feelings to get at
And always there is a need to keep purifying these needs and sounds
So that we can really see what we've discovered in its pure state
So we can see more clearly what we are
In that way, we can give those who listen to the essence
The best of what we are

John Coltrane

A Quote by Martha Nibley Beck on joy, love, north star, life, purpose, relationship, journey, potential, business, happiness, realization, friends, opportunities, essence, meaning, and purpose

Connecting with the people who are meant to be part of your own North Star is much more important than any aspect of business. It's the essence of happiness, the full realization of your potential for joy.

By the end of your incredibly arduous, disappointing, stressful journey, you will be your true self, in a place where you belong, with friends who truly understand you and bring all sorts of opportunities your way.

Every aspect of your life, whether it's a task or relationship, personal or professional, will be based on love and joy. And when you get right down to it, nothing else really matters.
