Vanessa liked a quote
Practicing the Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
“The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not “the thinker.” The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter – beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace – arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken.”
Eckhart Tolle

The Seven Levels of Intimacy by Matthew Kelly
“Love is the wanting, and the having, and the choosing, and the becoming. Love is the desire to see the person we love be and become all he or she is capable of being and becoming. Love is a willingness to lay down our own personal plans, desires, and agenda for the good of the relationship. Love is delayed gratification, pleasure, and pain. Love is being able to live and thrive apart, but choosing to be together.”

Mahatma Gandhi
“I am but a poor struggling soul yearning to be wholly good, wholly truthful and wholly non-violent in thought, word and deed, but ever failing to reach the ideal which I know to be true. It is a painful climb, but each step upwards makes me feel stronger and fit for the next. ”
Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi
“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Jalaluddin Rumi
“Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.”
Jalaluddin Rumi

Jalaluddin Rumi
“Two there are who are never satisfied -- the lover of the world and the lover of knowledge.”
Jalaluddin Rumi, مثنوی معنوی

We can achieve peace if we stop hate, however hard it may be. Just open up your mind and love instead of hate.
