A Quote by Machig Labdron on friend, demons, healing, chod, tantra, transformation, and compassion

    With a loving mind, cherish more than a child
    The hostile gods and demons of apparent existence,

        And tenderly surround yourself with them.

    Nourish them always with warm flesh and blood.
    With the hook of love and compassion,
             Befriend them and never dismiss them.
    If, with pure noble thought and enlightened resolve,
    You connect them to the sacred Dharma
    And they are freed and established in happiness,
    Then you, child, whoever you are,
    Will be my inseparable friend.

A Quote by Ben Okri on ben okri, dreams, enchantment, triumph, and transformation

Only those who truly love and are truly strong can sustain their lives as a dream. You dwell in your own enchantment. Life throws stones at you, but your love and your dream change those stones into the flowers of discovery. Even if you lose, or are defeated by things, your triumph will always be exemplary. And if no one knows it, then there are places that do. People like you enrich the dreams of the world, and it is dreams that create history. People like you are unknowing transformers of things, protected by your own fairy-tale, by love.

A Quote by Paulo Freire on education, younger generation, conformity, freedom, and transformation

Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.

Paulo Freire (1921 - 1997)

A Quote by Shakti Gawain on transformation, old habits, and old patterns

As you learn to consciously observe the transformation process, you will watch yourself repeating a lot of old patterns long after you seemingly know better.  Spiritually and intellectually, you realize there is another way, but emotionally you are still clinging to the old habits.  This is a difficult time.  Try to be patient and compassionate with yourself.  When you recognize the futility of an old pattern so clearly, it's about to change!  A short time later, you will suddenly begin to respond differently, in a more positive way.

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on myths, fear, struggle, strife, dificulty, and transformation

How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples - those myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses.  Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses, only waiting to see us, once beautiful and brave.  Perhaps everything terrible in our lives is, in its deepest being, something helpless, that wants help from us.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)

A Quote by Romney M. Moseley on integration of opposites, redemption, and transformation

According to Hebblethwaite, the genius of Christian faith is its proclamation that nothing is beyond redemption. The gospel is not about integration of opposites but about their transformation and redemption.
