“The truth is, everything will be okay as soon as you are okay with everything. And that’s the only time everything will be okay.” — Michael Singer
“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” — Brian Tracy
“Don’t judge someone just because they sin differently than you.”
“Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.”
“I liked the fact that rather than classifying mental states, emotions, or desires on the basis of some externally imposed moral judgment such as ‘Greed is a sin’ or ‘Hatred is evil,’ he [His Holiness The Dalai Lama] categorizes emotions as positive or negative simply on the basis of whether they lead to our ultimate happiness.” [page 41] ― His Holiness The Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness
“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” — His Holiness The Dalai Lama XIV
