A Quote by John Muir on john muir, senses, nature, reality, and world

If the Creator were to bestow a new set of senses upon us, or slightly remodel the present ones, leaving all the rest of nature unchanged, we should never doubt we were in another world, and so in strict reality we should be, just as if all the world besides our senses were changed.

John Muir (1838 - 1914)

A Quote by Pamela V. Church on awakening, world, trauma, collective, alchemical, change, and heart

If we stay with our feelings about the world situation, if we acknowledge what is already there, if we work our own trauma residue, we can collectively, alchemically change the lead into gold, moving our hearts forward, using all that is as a vehicle for awakening.

A Quote by Søren Aabye Kierkegaard on existence and world

I stick my finger into existence.. it smells of nothing.
Where am I? Who am I? What is this thing called the world?
What does this word mean?

A Quote by Ellen G. White on god, man, earth, world, transgression, sin, love, woe, death, suffering, difficulties, trials, life, toil, sorrow, misery, nature, hope, comfort, and happiness

God made man perfectly holy and happy; and the fair earth, as it came from the Creator's hand, bore no blight of decay or shadow of the curse. It is transgression of God's law--the law of love--that has brought woe and death. Yet even amid the suffering that results from sin, God's love is revealed. It is written that God cursed the ground for man's sake. Genesis 3:17. The thorn and the thistle--the difficulties and trials that make his life one of toil and care--were appointed for his good as a part of the training needful in God's plan for his uplifting from the ruin and degradation that sin has wrought. The world, though fallen, is not all sorrow and misery. In nature itself are messages of hope and comfort. There are flowers upon the thistles, and the thorns are covered with roses.

"God is love" is written upon every opening bud, upon every spire of springing grass. The lovely birds making the air vocal with their happy songs, the delicately tinted flowers in their perfection perfuming the air, the lofty trees of the forest with their rich foliage of living green -- all testify to the tender, fatherly care of our God and to His desire to make His children happy.

A Quote by Laurence Overmire on ancestors, generations, genealogy, hopes, dreams, contribution, story, world, and genealogist

Over the course of the millennia, all these ancestors in your tree, generation upon generation, have come down to this moment in time-to give birth to you. There has never been, nor will ever be, another like you. You have been given a tremendous responsibility. You carry the hopes and dreams of all those who have gone before. Hopes and dreams for a better world. What will you do with your time on this Earth? How will you contribute to the ongoing story of humankind?

A Quote by J.P.M on peace and world

There is within us a power that could lift the world out of its ignorance and misery if we only knew how to use it, if we would seek and find. When you meditate, open not only your listening mind but the other door to your mind as well so that the spirits streams out as fast as it comes in. Store nothing…A tree grows not by the pulling of the sun only, but by the richness of the soil… Go into the calm and luminous silence to renew, but stay in the soil of your life. No, there is nothing to fear. Do not waste time wishing for peace; there is no peace in the world, there is only peace in ones own soul. Get more fearless peace in your souls and then you will be some good.
