A classic clip with Eckhart Tolle and Oprah I felt like returning to today. Needed this reminder. Eckhart Tolle believes that the key to living a happier life is consciously accepting the present moment as if we chose it ourselves.
“As I walk , I light the lamp of my soul.
As I walk, I light the wick of another’s soul.”
― Sima Mittal
“The most important choices we make in life are not the dramatic turning points such as a change of career, the person we marry, the country we emigrate to. The most important choices in life are the thoughts and feelings we choose to entertain, moment after moment, day after day.”
– Pierre Pradervand, The Gentle Art of the Blessing
“It is good to know that there are still people who think no evil, because they know the importance of the good they are doing. Those people grow in the eyes of men and of God. They are unafraid of envy or indifference because Love ‘thinketh no evil’, always looks on the bright side, always looks for the positive in every action.”
– Paulo Coelho, The Supreme Gift
“Isaac was right: It is knowing our place in the universe that makes for humility, that guarantees us peace. And we are neither its glory nor its ultimacy. That puts a lot of things into a more proper perspective, doesn’t it?”
– Joan Chittister
“It’s one of my theories that when people give you advice, they’re really just talking to themselves in the past.”
– Austin Kleon
“It is impossible to bless and judge at the same time. So hold constantly as a deep, hallowed, intoned thought the desire to bless, for truly then shall you become a peacemaker, and one day you shall behold, everywhere, the very face of God.”
– Pierre Pradervand
