A Quote by Elysha on accountability, advaita, adyashanti, apocalypse, authenticity, awakening, awareness, beauty, behaviour, being, bible, biology, bliss, buddha, buddhism, catholic, cessation, changes, christ, christian, clarity, communication, concepts

As you learn to leave alone the activity of unconsciously trying to be the mindbody that you think that you are - the mindbody that this "you" is currently flowing through - and you learn to move as this one that you truly are - this "you" of you; the very heart of existence - steadily, consciously and momentarily, the continuity of the ever deepening of this innermost as it keeps on entering its manifestation, through this mindbody that you find yourself flowing through, allows you to simply bubble in the sheer joy, pleasure, peace, delightfulness and stillness that this "you" of you is.

A Quote by Phillips Brooks on day, god, grace, life, men, miracles, richness, wonder, and work

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men! Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall not be a miracle, But you yourself shall be the miracle. Every day you shall wonder at yourself: At the richness of life which has come in you by the grace of God.

Phillips Brooks (1835 - 1893)

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on certainty, departure, duty, effort, god, history, joy, mind, past, perspective, reality, richness, soul, understanding, and universe

These transcending truths restructure our understanding of ourselves and of the universe and bring within our view resplendent reality. To be seen only by those who have eyes to see, these flakes of fire are embedded in the holy scriptures. There these transcending truths may appear in the midst of the routine lineage history . . . chronologies, genealogies, and duties. . . . When encountered, their sudden richness is so breathtaking and light-intensive that, like radioactive materials, they must be handled with great care. They both light up the mind and infuse joy into the soul. . . . encountering certain verses is like walking in the woods and coming suddenly upon what C. S. Lewis called a patch of "god light" - an illuminated place in the woods of our experiences. Then there is a special surge of gospel gladness. The weariness of mind quickly departs. Such sudden light can even restructure our understanding of reality and put our past, puny efforts in perspective. One wonders, for instance, if [this is] what Moses called things he "never had supposed." (Moses 1:10.)

Neal Maxwell (1926 -)

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on arrogance, art, concern, corruption, diversity, existence, limitations, poetry, power, and richness

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses, for art establishes the basic human truths which must serve as the touchstone of our judgement.

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on experience, joy, obstacles, and richness

The richness of the human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no obstacles to overcome.

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on darkness, experience, joy, limitations, and richness

The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.

A Quote by Gary Zukav on beauty, bliss, experience, giving, home, laughter, richness, trust, and universe

Trust allows you to give. Giving is abundant. Trust allows the experience of bliss. Bliss is awakefulness. Trust allows you to laugh. Laugh at the richness, the beauty and the playfulness of the universe. Apply consciousness to this process and all roads will lead to home.

A Quote by Elinor Morton Hoyt Wylie on love and richness

Down to the Puritan marrow of my bones There's something in this richness that I hate. I love the look, austere, immaculate, Of landscapes drawn in pearly monotones.

A Quote by Eli Stanley Jones on admiration, agreement, character, christ, friendship, giving, idealism, jesus, life, power, questions, richness, and virtue

Some have said that the power of a Redeemer would depend upon two things: first, upon the richness of the self that was given; and second, upon the depths of the giving. Friend and foe alike are agreed on the question of the character of Jesus Christ. . . . Whatever our creed, we stand with admiration before the sublime character of Jesus. Character is supreme in life, and hence Jesus stood supreme in the supreme thing - so supreme that, when we think of the ideal, we do not add virtue to virtue, but think of Jesus Christ, so that the standard of human life is no longer a code, but a character.
