“We have lived our lives by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. We have been wrong. We must change our lives so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption, that what is good for the world will be good for us. And that requires that we make the effort to know the world and learn what is good for it.”

~ Wendell Berry, The Long-Legged House

Painting by Isaak Levitan (1899)

Surrender

“Don’t look for peace. Don’t look for any other state than the one you are in now; otherwise, you will set up inner conflict and unconscious resistance. Forgive yourself for not being peace. The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace. Anything you accept fully will get you there, will take you into peace. This is the miracle of surrender.”

~ Eckhart Tolle

Painting by Stanislav Zhukovsky (1897)

“Our spirits long to soar like eagles, to be filled with inspiration, to feel the love that flows between us and our Creator. But until we are willing to relinquish all forms of judgment and attack, we will remain half-dead and unaware of the splendor that awaits us.”

~ Gerald Jampolsky, Teach Only Love

Painting by Hans Baluschek (1917)
