pronoia

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on responsibility, empowerment, ecology, belonging, ownership, stewardship, and pronoia

Imagine that the whole world belongs to you.  The birch trees in New Hampshire's White Mountains are yours, and so are the cirrus clouds in the western sky at dusk and the black sand on the beaches of Hawaii's big island.  You own everything, my dear sovereign - the paintings in all the museums of the world, as well as the internet and the wild horses and the roads.

Please take good care of it all, OK?  Be an enlightened monarch who treats your domain with reverent responsibility.  And make sure you also enjoy the full measure of fun that comes with such mastery.  Glide through life as if all of creation is yearning to honor and entertain you.

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on love, awareness, abundance, and pronoia

Can you imagine what it would feel like to become aware of an omnipresent ocean of wild divine love that has always been a secret to you in the same way that the sea is invisible to a fish?

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on pronoia, optimism, evil, cynicism, fear, joy, love, pleasure, receptivity, secret helpers, and conspiracy

DEFINITION: Pronoia is the antidote for paranoia.  It's the understanding that the universe is fundamentally friendly.  It’s a mode of training your senses and intellect so you're able to perceive the fact that life always gives you exactly what you need, exactly when you need it.

HYPOTHESES: Evil is boring.  Cynicism is idiotic.  Fear is a bad habit.  Despair is lazy.  Joy is fascinating.  Love is an act of heroic genius.  Pleasure is our birthright.  Receptivity is a superpower.

PROCEDURE: Act as if the universe is a prodigious miracle created for your amusement and illumination.  Assume that secret helpers are working behind the scenes to assist you in turning into the gorgeous masterpiece you were born to be.  Join the conspiracy to shower all of creation with blessings.

A Quote by Starhawk on mystery, creating, celebration, support, pronoia, and resolution

Our way out involves both resistance and renewal: saying no to what is, so that we can reshape and recreate the world.  Our challenge is communal, but to face it we must be empowered as individuals and create structures of support and celebration that can teach us freedom.  Creation is the ultimate resistance, the ultimate refusal to accept things as they are.  For it is in creation that we encounter Mystery...

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo coelho, soul of the world, destiny, unity, pronoia, and desire

The Soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy, and jealousy. To realize one's destiny is a person's only real obligation. All things are one.
And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

Paulo Coelho

A Quote by Mike Dooley on change, powerful, inspirational, and pronoia

Shhhh...right now, all around you, outside your door, down the street, and in every corner of YOUR world... there's evidence of a conspiracy. ALL THE ELEMENTS are secretly marching to the beat... of YOUR drummer... while casually pretending to be detached and indifferent...YOU ARE THAT POWERFUL.
