Apr. 7, 2009 - Passion by Rumi

"Passion makes the old medicine new:

Passion lops off the bough of weariness.

Passion is the elixir that renews:

How can there be weariness

when passion is present?

Oh, don't sigh heavily from fatigue:

seek passion, seek passion, seek passion!"

- Rumi

Feb. 3, 2009 - Today's Borrowed Wisdom

“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage -- pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically -- to say 'no' to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger 'yes' burning inside. The enemy of the 'best' is often the 'good.'"

Stephen Covey

Jul. 13, 2008 - You are perfect!

" Listen

Make a way for yourself inside yourself.

Stop looking in the other way of looking.

You already have the precious mixture

that will make you well.

Use it."

RUMI

I love Rumi! He was so wise and I seem to find quotes from him on the right topic on the right day.

Isn't life perfect? Mine is today. I hope you see yours is too!

Jul. 8, 2008 - Message From The Universe

 

Every morning The Universe sends me a message. It is even better than reading your horoscope.

This is what I got today. I love it!!!!! Don't you? Which way are you living? I'm a Princess in training for this one.

Tell me, when you think of taking consistent action in the general direction of your dreams, Joeann, do you imagine discipline, stamina, work, sacrifice, monotony, courage, and strategies, or are you thinking adventure, discovery, new friends, excitement at the crack of dawn, magic, surprises, fun, laughter, and, on occasion, the Macarena?

 

Cool! Me too, "HEY!"
    The Universe
 

If you'd like the Universe to send you messages each day, all you have to do is ask!

Jul. 4, 2008 - Summertime and The Living is Easy....

 
"Summer is the time when one sheds

 

one's tensions with one's clothes,
and the right kind of day is
jeweled balm for the battered spirit.

A few of those days and
you can become drunk with the belief
that all's right with the world."
-    Ada Louise Huxtable

Jun. 13, 2008 - When The Time is Right.....

·      "Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions
themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer."
-Rainer Maria Rilke, German poet

I love to read this quote when the hurry, hurry, hurry in me wants to make quick decisions and baffle them all with action. I am learning to let things unfold instead of forcing....

Mar. 26, 2008 - Taking Care of Your Mind!

Two Good Quotes:
"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled."
- Plutarch

"We must try to keep the mind in tranquility. For just as the eye which constantly shifts its gaze, now turning to the right or to the left, now incessantly peering up or down, cannot see distinctly what lies before it, but the sight must be fixed firmly on the object in view if one would make his vision of it clear; so too man's mind when distracted by his countless worldly cares cannot focus itself distinctly on the truth."
- St. Basil the Great
Have an amazing day! IT IS UP TO YOU!!!!!

Aug. 27, 2007 - Daring Adventure?

Helen Keller  said, "

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable."

So many tangles in life are ultimately hopeless that we have no appropriate sword other than laughter.
