Spirit and Soul

“I call the light and high aspects of my being spirit and the dark and heavy aspects soul.Soul is at home in the deep,shaded valleys.Heavy torpid flowers saturated with black grow there.The rivers flow like warm syrup.They empty into huge oceans of soul.Spirit is a land of high white peaks and glittering jewel-like lakes and flowers.Life is sparse and sounds travel great distances. There is soul music,soul food, and soul love… People need to climb the mountain not simple because it is there But because the soulful divinity needs to be mated with the spirit.”-Dalai Lama

Thoughts in Life

“The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves.We are what we are,in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head.All concepts of self-improvement,all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves.Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being.A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”- Bruce Lee

Energy for Life

“While it may come as a profound surprise to those of us who are in the throes of an emotional or life crisis,the fact remains that the answer to virtually all of our problems resides within us already.It exist in the form of a vast reservoir of free-flowing energy that,when channeled to our muscles,can give us great strength and,when channeled to our brain,can give us great insight and understanding.”- Bruce Lee

Beauty of Universe

“Landscapes of great wonder and beauty lie under our feet and all around us. They are discovered in tunnels in the ground, the heart of flowers,the hollows of trees, fresh-water ponds, seaweed jungles between tides,and even drops of water.Life in these hidden worlds is more startling in reality than anything we can imagine.How could this earth of ours, which is only a speck in the heavens, have so much variety of life,so many curious and exciting creatures?”- Walt Disney

Vision in Life

“It is good to LOOK to the past to gain appreciation for the present and perspective for the FUTURE.It is good to look upon the VIRTUES of those who have gone before;to gain STRENGTH for whatever lies ahead.It is good to REFLECT upon the work of those who labored so hard and gained so little in this world,but out of whose DREAMS and early pains,so well nurtured,has come a great gravest of which we are the beneficiaries.Their tremendous EXAMPLE can become a compelling MOTIVATION for all of us.”-Gordon B. Hinckley
