living

A Quote by Karen Wright on dreams, decision, living, and life

What exactly does it take to live the life of your dreams? Perfect
timing? Fortunate opportunities? A million dollars in the bank?
Not even close. It takes a decision; a simple decision that will
ultimately test the strength of your commitment and the depth
of your faith.

A Quote by Oriah Mountain Dreamer on life, living, connecting, and responsibility

   

I want to remind us all that the world is listening, all the time.  How we are ripples out from us into the world and affects others.  We have a responsibility-an ability to respond-to the world.  Finding our particular way of living this responsibility, of offering who we are to the world, is why we are here.  We are called because the world needs us to embody the meaning in our lives.  God needs us awake.  The world we live in is a cocreation, a manifestation of individual consciousness woven into a collective dream.  How we are with each other as individuals, as groups, as nations and tribes is what shapes that dream.

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, definitions, descriptions, opinions, experience, knowledge, knowing, know, loving, living, life, questioning, question, belief, attachment, emotional, emotions, feelings, spirit, and joy

There are those who will dismiss love as a naïve and romantic construct of our culture. Others will wax poetic and tell you that “love is all,””love is the bird call and the glint in a young girl’s eyes on a summer night.” Some will be dogmatic and tell you emphatically that “God is Love.” And some, according to their own experience, will tell us, “Love is a strong emotional attachment to another…”etc. In some cases you will find that people have never thought of questioning love, much less defining it, and object violently even to the suggestion that they think about it. To them love is not to be pondered, it is simply to be experienced. It is true to some degree all of these statements are correct, but to assume that any one is best or all there is to love, is rather simple. So each man lives love in his limited fashion and does not seem to relate the resultant confusion and loneliness to this lack of knowledge about love.

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, definitions, descriptions, opinions, experience, knowledge, knowing, know, loving, living, life, questioning, question, belief, attachment, emotional, emotions, feelings, spirit, and joy

In discussing love, it would be well to consider the following premises;

One cannot give what he does not possess. Too give love you must possess love.
One cannot teach what he does not understand. To teach love, you must comprehend love.
One cannot know what he does not study. To study love, you must live in love.
One cannot appreciate what he does not recognize. To recognize love you must be receptive to love.
One cannot have doubt about that which he wishes to trust. To trust love you must be convinced of love.
One cannot admit what he does not yield to. To yield to love you must be vulnerable to love.
One cannot live what he does not dedicate himself to. To dedicate yourself to love you must be forever growing in love.
