A Quote by James Allen on self will, soul, force, and power within

You will be what you will to be; Let failure find its false content In that poor word environment, But spirit scorns it and its free.

It masters time, it conquers space, It cows that boastful trickster, Chance, And bids the tyrant Circumstance Uncrown, and take a servants place

The human will, that force unseen, The offspring of a deathless Soul, Can hew a way to any goal, Though walls of granite intervene.

Be not impatient in delay, But wait as one who understands; When spirit rises and commands, The gods are ready to obey.

-James Allen

A Quote by George Bernard Shaw on brevity, community, complaints, death, force, future, generations, happiness, joy, life, nature, privilege, purpose, selfishness, work, and world

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no 'brief candle' to me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I have a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it over to future generations.

George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)

The possibility of stepping into a higher plane is quite real for everyone. It requires no force or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than changing our ideas about what is normal.
