vision

A Quote by Robert Grudin on future, sight, vision, mundane, visionary, clarity, and greatness

Fast drivers can see no further than slow drivers, but they must look further down the road to time their reactions safely. Similarly, people with great projects afoot habitually look further and more clearly into the future than people who are mired in day-to-day concerns.

A Quote by Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on daring, vision, fearlessness, gentleness, expression, sanity, and softness

When there is daring, you dare to do something: you put forth your vision fearlessly. People have doubts about big vision because they don’t have a sense of gentleness in themselves first. So gentleness brings daring and a sense of fearlessness. Daring is appreciation of letting go in the fundamental sense. First you develop gentleness toward yourself; then you begin to develop daring, which is connected with how to express your gentleness to the world outside, how to proclaim your sanity. Your are not going crazy because you have seen the Great Eastern Sun, which is the symbol of expansive vision in the Shambhala world. Rather, because you have seen the Great Eastern Sun, you are very daring and at the same time very gentle and soft. The softer you become, the greater the message to the world becomes.

A Quote by Thomas Berry on education, religion, story, cosmology, universe, vision, life, and spirituality

Both education and religion need to ground themselves within the story of the universe as we now understand this story through empirical knowledge. Within this functional cosmology, we can overcome our alienation and begin the renewal of life on a sustainable basis. This story is a numinous revelatory story that could evoke the vision and the energy required to bring not only ourselves but the entire planet into a new order of magnificence.

A Quote by Berthold Auerbach on tyranny, destruction, desposition, and vision

What will people say--in these words lies the tyranny of the world, the whole destruction of our natural disposition, the oblique vision of our minds. These four words hold sway everywhere.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on vision, value, principles, goals, mission, conscience, direction, time management, compass, clock, and struggle

Our struggle to put first things first can be characterized by the contrast between two powerful tools that direct us: the clock and the compass.  The clock represents our commitments, appointments, schedules, goals, activities -- what we do with, and how we manage our time.  The compass represents our vision, values, principles, mission, conscience, direction -- what we feel is important and how we lead our lives.  In an effort to close the gap between the clock and the compass in our lives, many of us turn to the field of "time management."

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Thomas Carlyle on deep, song, music, sphere-harmonies, poetry, vision, and nature

All deep things are Song. It seems somehow the very central essence of us, Song; as if all the rest were but wrappages and hulls! The primal element of us; of us, and of all things. The Greeks fabled of Sphere-Harmonies: it was the feeling they had of the inner-structure of Nature that the soul of all her voices and utterances was perfect music. Poetry, therefore, we will call musical Thought. The poet is he who thinks in that manner. At bottom, it turns still on the power of intellect; it is man's sincerity and depth of vision that makes him Poet. See deep enough, and you see musically; the heart of Nature being everywhere music, if you can only reach it.

A Quote by Earon on mindfulness, consciousness, light, cave, practice, and vision

The practice of mindfulness begins in the small, remote cave of your unconscious mind and blossoms with the sunlight of your conscious life, reaching far beyond the people and places you can see.

A Quote by Wolf Moondance on path, great spirit, gift, and vision

Your "path" is the link between you and Great Spirit.  It is necessary to have a path in order for Great Spirit to gift you with a "vision".

A Quote by Abraham Hicks on ownership, vision, reality, and want

You have sole ownership of your vision. And the Universe will give you what
you want within your vision. What happens with most people is that they
muddy their vision with "reality". Their vision becomes full of not only
what they want but what everybody else thinks about what they want, too.
Your work is to clarify and purify your vision so that the vibration that
you are offering can then be answered.
