“We are all different. Don’t judge, understand instead.”
Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

“Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.”
Roy T. Bennett

“If you don't know who you truly are, you'll never know what you really want.”

“The greatest challenge in life is to be our own person and accept that being different is a blessing and not a curse. A person who knows who they are lives a simple life by eliminating from their orbit anything that does not align with his or her overriding purpose and values. A person must be selective with their time and energy because both elements of life are limited.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Embrace being perfectly imperfect. Learn from your mistakes and forgive yourself, you’ll be happier.”
Roy Bennett

Debbie Ford
“The greatest act of courage is to be and to own all of who you are — without apology, without excuses, without masks to cover the truth of who you are.”
Debbie Ford, Courage: Overcoming Fear and Igniting Self-Confidence

“When you open your mind, you open new doors to new possibilities for yourself and new opportunities to help others.”
Roy Bennett

Vironika Tugaleva
“Self-discovery changes everything, including your relationships with people. When you find your authentic self, those who loved your mask are disappointed. You may end up alone, but you don’t need to stay alone. While it’s painful to sever old connections, it’s not a tragedy. It’s an opportunity. Now, you can find people who understand the importance of looking for truth and being authentic. Now, you can find people who want to connect deeply, like you’ve always wanted to, instead of constant small talk and head games. Now, you can have real intimacy. Now, you can find your tribe.”
Vironika Tugaleva

“Stay woke. Jump out of
bed, even if it makes you
dizzy. Listen to your voice,
even if it startles you.
Breathe in the smelling
salt, even if it stings you.
Stare into the light of the
reality before you, even if
it burns. If you get weary,
ask for help—whatever it
takes to keep your eyes
open. Bask in the glow
of conscious living. You
are awake. This is when
change happens.”

“Stop trying to
bend your mind
around someone
else’s organizing
framework.”

“What if the theories in
psychology that dominate
our mainstream culture
are flawed, rather than the
people they diagnose?
That we close our eyes
to modern brain science
and global context and
pigeonhole human beings
as “normal” or “abnormal”
is one of the biggest
shams of the century.”

“When we continuously
snuggle up to antiquated
ideas, we shut our eyes
against the light of our
potential.”

Kristen   Lee
“Our old methods of excavating
for problems leaves
us with more problems.
Everything rides on changing
the positions we hold,
the questions we ask, and
the answers we’re willing
to accept. When we only
mine for weaknesses, that’s
exactly what we’ll find.”
Kristen Lee, Mentalligence: A New Psychology of Thinking--Learn What It Takes to be More Agile, Mindful, and Connected in Today's World

“Authenticity is the language of visionaries.”
Andrena Sawyer

“At some point in life, we all feel burden, oppressed if you will, by the knowledge of our existence. Addressing our deepest anguish and greatest fear establishes the bedrock of any artistic effort, and ultimately represents the thin line that separates contemplative humankind from all other forms of animal life. A person with an artistic bent embraces the inherent anxiety of living and attempts to express anguish in a telling format in order to assist other people grapple with the baffle of being: awareness of the absurdity of striving in a world where the only thing guaranteed for a person with many cravings is hellish life of attachment and wanting. When we rise above the deceptions and temptations of an egocentric mind, we encounter our spiritual essence.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“A person living an artistic existence refuses to surrender to the winds of time, continues singing and dancing into the teeth of the harshest storm, and marvels in all of the delightful treasures of simply being.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Shauna Niequist
“I used to be afraid that I was hollow somehow, that I only existed if someone could see me and hear me, like a toddler playing peek-a-boo. My whole life was an elaborate attempt at never having to be alone with myself.”
Shauna Niequist, Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living

Kristen   Lee
“GET OFF the paved path.
It’s way too BASIC for you.
There’s AIR to BREATHE.
Oceans to FLOAT in.
Dances to be DANCED.
Songs to SING.
Splendor to BEHOLD.
Stop WAITING for PERMISSION.”
Kristen Lee, Mentalligence: A New Psychology of Thinking--Learn What It Takes to be More Agile, Mindful, and Connected in Today's World
