A Quote by zaadzster_1 on tom robbins, individuality, grace, love, and wit

"Our individuality is all, all, that we have. There are those who barter it for security, those who repress it for what they believe is the betterment of the whole society, but blessed in the twinkle of the morning star is the one who nurtures and rides it, in grace and love and wit, from peculiar station to peculiar station along life's bittersweet route."

Tom Robbins (1936 -)

A Quote by Russell Simmons on grace


"My brother, Reverand Run, who's what I like to call a "Christian yogi", has his own term for it. He calls it a "State of Grace", that space where you can walk around and practice love in everything you do. To walk around all day with a smile and, instead of seeing the world as bad, simply seeing opportunities to make the world better."

Russell Simmons

A Quote by Caroline Myss on guidance, silence, grace, and dreaming

Do not assume that divine guidance flows only when you are in need of help.  Guidance continues to flow whether or not you have problems.  It transcends problems, heartbreaks, and traumas, flowing through dreams and illuminations.... Whether guidance comes during times of tranquility or trauma, however, it is up to you to have the courage to acknowledge it....

A Quote by Caroline Myss on silence, mind, fear, contemplation, reflection, meditation, and grace

Contain your experience with the divine so that it does not escape you but rather shapes you.  Be silent.  Silence will help you avoid engaging in the games of competition and illusion that regularly seduce us in the outside world.  Silence also helps you avoid distraction.  It helps focus the busy mind---the mind that always has to be doing something, thinking something, the mind that always has to be otherwise engaged lest it become introspective and allow the soul's voice to override its own.  The silence I am describing is a silence that you use to contain the grace you receive when you enter the Castle of your soul.  This quality of silence allows you to engage in discernment.  You carry this silence within you, even when you are with others.  It allows you to hold your center amid the chaos of your life; it keeps you clear so that you do not do or say things you will regret or make decisions out of fear.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on silence and grace

Silence is a learned practice that requires far more than just not talking.  Not talking is not silence; it's just not talking.
