Allan Rufus
“Life is like a game of chess.
To win you have to make a move.
Knowing which move to make comes with IN-SIGHT
and knowledge, and by learning the lessons that are
acculated along the way.

We become each and every piece within the game called life!”
Allan Rufus, The Master's Sacred Knowledge

“Just as writing can become calligraphy when it’s creatively, skillfully, and consciously performed, so can all other activities become art. In this case, we are reflecting upon life itself as an artistic statement—the art of living.”
H.E. Davey, Japanese Yoga: The Way of Dynamic Meditation

Amit Ray
“Stop overthinking, put more energy on what you really want to do.”
Amit Ray, Mindfulness Living in the Moment - Living in the Breath

“Always remember that you are the observer and not the doer. Do not take life to be anything more than acting. Don’t identify yourself too much with the action.
Whether you are a wife or husband, a businessman or client, don’t get too involved. Don’t lose yourself in it, for you are simply playing a role in the play. Keep outside of it, and within yourself. These are all necessary parts of life. You must go to work, it is necessary. The play is delightful if you see it as play, but it is fatal if you take it to be life. There is no reason so disrupt your life. You have to play the part that life has given you.”
Osho, Bliss: Living beyond happiness and misery

“Watch for signs of a toxic friendship and raise your guards:
- Their criticism/comments make you feel small and embarrassed
- They feel bitter on your achievements and try to minimise it in your and others' eyes
- They don't feel/understand your situation and you find yourself explaining and justifying your actions
- They are unhappy, complaining, dissatisfied and discontent with their life
- They are self-centred and require a lot of attention without returning it when you are in need
- They are bully (sometimes subtle though)
- They are not ready to take no as an answer
- They bear no criticism on themselves and are always right (it's always your fault)
It's hard to let go of toxic people. It's easy to find a reason or an excuse for their behaviour. But remember, a real friend needs no explanations, justifications, modifications or adjustments. They accept you the way you are and are always there regardless, without ever judging you. The risk with this awareness is that you may find yourself walking alone with no real friend around you, but this is how I have discovered my one and only 100% real friend - God.”
Asma Naqi

Marcel Proust
“The whole art of living is to use the people who make us suffer simply as steps enabling us to obtain access to their divine form and thus joyfully to people our lives with divinities.”
Marcel Proust, Time Regained

Banani Ray
“To live your life in trust, in love, in compassion is an art that makes you truly happy. If you live your life in this manner you will have nothing to regret when you die.”
Banani Ray, Flow Yoga The Mindful Path of Action for Transforming Stress into Happiness

“Happiness is odd
Found in mysterious places
Where you least expect it
Like a glowing penny on the floor
Not everyone can find it
And sometimes you lose it
Some find it in small things
Others see it in large things
If you cling to it
You’ll make it through
Happiness is odd”
Aleena Sebastian, Speaking Up for Each Other: A Collection of Short Stories for Tweens and Middle Grade Readers

“People are beautiful when they share things.”
Bishnu Bhatta

Michał Cichy
“Spokój jest najczystszym z dóbr. Nigdy nie jest go za dużo, nigdy się nie wyczerpuje i zawsze może być głębszy. To on daje miejsce pod wszystko pozostałe. Jest jedyną rzeczą, o którą warto się starać.”
Michał Cichy, Pozwól rzece płynąć

“Recently an actor came to visit me. He is a new entrant into the film world. He asked for my autograph with a message for him. So I wrote in his book: ”Act as if it is real life and live as if it is acting.”
Osho, Krishna: The Man and his Philosophy

“Whatsoever comes natural is good – easy is right.”
Osho, For madmen only: Price of admission: your mind
