"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Necessary Changes

Image preview


The more severe the pain or illness, the more severe will be the necessary changes.  These may involve breaking bad habits, or acquiring some new ones.


For many, negative thinking is a habit, which over time, becomes an addiction... A lot of people suffer from this disease because negative thinking is addictive to each of the Big Three -- the mind, the body, and the emotions. If one doesn't get you, the others are waiting in the wings.

The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.  JKZ


"The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream." -William Shakespeare


“If you don't feel it, flee from it. Go where you are celebrated, not merely tolerated.” ― Paul F. Davis

 
"And the Day came when the risk it took to remain tight in a bud, was even more painful then the risk it took to blossom"- Anis Nin

Life is short.



What is Life?

It is the flash of a firefly in the night.

It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time.

It is the little shadow which runs across the grass
and loses itself in the Sunset."


 Crowfoot on his deathbed, April 1890

Pema Chödrön: Change Means We Are Alive

May 20, 2013
A leading exponent of teachings on meditation and how they apply to everyday life, Pema Chödrön is widely known for her insightful, down-to-earth interpretation of Tibetan Buddhism for Western audiences. She reminds us that although our mind perceives things as being fixed, everything is, in fact, changing all the time. Life is so fluid it's more like being in a river rather than standing on solid ground. It's this change that offers unlimited possibility for freshness and uniqueness.
