“It is one thing to lose people you love. It is another to lose yourself. That is a greater loss.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Life is not a competition. No one has to lose for someone else to win. A true blessing blesses everyone.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Your body would not get sick if you held no thought of resentment. It is neither good nor bad of itself. If we hold anything against anyone, we will suffer ourselves.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“When we love someone, we make it our business to protect them.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“The question is: do you want suffering or do you want peace? It's that simple.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“We draw into our life those who will help us to grow. Naturally, we tend to have mixed feelings about those very people but they are marked for us. We have forgotten that we wrote them an invitation some time ago. We look at them as if they are intruders when all along they are our guests.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Anything that is held in secret cannot be healed. The light cannot reach that which is locked away in the dark.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer

Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Relationships are valuable no matter who they are between.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“You can turn every ugly and damaging drama into a genuine blessing by seeing it differently. No one is suffering on purpose. We learn to give up the pleasure we feel in self-righteously blaming others. Healing happens when we see things differently. The question is: do you want suffering or peace? It's that simple.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Life is not a competition. No one has to lose for someone else to win. A true blessing blesses everyone. A fragmented love which makes others lose will eventually turn upon itself and destroy the very thing which was being so carefully guarded. An open-hearted love will follow a course which can only lead somewhere good.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“We make people special to us, believing that they can save us. When one thing doesn’t work, we look somewhere else to be saved. We rarely question the concept, itself. Sometimes, we don’t look to another person to save us but to money, acknowledgement, a title, a cause, a notion of ourselves. None of it can save us. We travel the path in different ways; some are polite, some are ruthless, some are clever, some are instinctive. In the end, it all leads to the same despairing place. In the unsuspecting quiet moments, there it is; a sense of peace and a feeling that everything is fine without searching for anything to be saved by.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“If you can't work it out together then let each other go freely. You loved her once. She is still that same person. Think of that person you once loved. She is that person whether you are together or not.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Relationships are used by the darkness to keep people revolving around the ego’s demands. For a moment, people see the light of the divine in each other. They run to it and then quickly forget the light they once saw as their fears reclaim their consciousness. Thus begins the ongoing battle to protect one’s own ‘rights’, in case they be forgotten or betrayed. The tally of what is owed is counted, the guilt of perceived wrong doings is cast upon the other, one’s freedom must be paid as the price for ‘love’, and it is only in short periods of peace when all of this is forgotten. Those moments are the precious windows of the Soul.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Lies rob us of our trust and we project our untrustworthiness onto everyone around us. Have you ever noticed that the innocent are very trusting? They neither lie nor hold other people’s lies against them. Liars, on the other hand, see sabotage everywhere.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Healing is simple, if one is healed.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“The spiritual path is more of an unlearning than a learning.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“That voice you listen to is no friend. It promises so much but when has it ever given you what it promised? When has it ever given you any happiness longer than a fleeting moment? It has your destruction as its goal, not your happiness.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“There is a depth to life which only comes from our connection to other people. However, we have to find it without becoming a prisoner.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Those we love become our teachers whether we intend it or not.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Read minds more than minding words.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“We find many friends when we are down and out. People swarm around with proclamations of, 'Oh, how dreadful. How terrible.' They may as well be saying, 'Thank you so much for making me feel better about myself and my life. You have more problems than me and are more pathetic.' Yet, when we enter the path of healing, there will be few standing there to wish us well, in case we find it.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Artists see the invisible before anyone else.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“We can learn to use the pain in our relationships to transform us thereby turning them into entities which heal not harm.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Anger is a cover for fear.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“If people could kill without going to jail and, perhaps, without getting their own hands dirty, they often would. Human nature is like that.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Do not be afraid of love or the course it will take. There is no certainty in life. Choose love first and choose love last and it will give you more than you ever give it.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Even though we have a body which can thrive and be used for beautiful things, it is the changeless soul which connects.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Every grievance you hold hides a little more of the light of the world from your eyes until the darkness becomes overwhelming. Everything you forgive restores that light. So ask yourself, who is it that you are really hurting?”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
“Every relationship is a love-lesson.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer
