“We’re our own worst enemy and our own best friend.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“No one replaces anyone else. No one substitutes for another person. Every person is unique. Every relationship is unique. Every relationship’s purpose is unique. Life is fluid; it moves. It doesn’t die; it reforms. Each day is new. We can only try and do our best for today. It’s enough, don’t you think? No more is asked. But also no less.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“When the body is in its rightful mode, it is silent. We feel neither well nor sick, healthy nor unhealthy. The body becomes the quiet, perfectly functioning tool by which God uses us in this life. Your body can be well just as easily as sick. Your life can be harmonious and glad just as easily as it can be tormented and dramatic. Choose carefully. And if you have chosen unfortunately then choose again.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“We must know who we are and where we are.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“If a physical overhaul brings more freedom, creativity, and self-worth then the process will add to the person’s depth and happiness. It would be a step closer to realising one’s inestimable worth. If the overhaul doesn’t do that then it is decorating skeletons.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“The Dream Maker is here by consent of every person who ever came here.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Do not assume that someone else’s ego can love you. It cannot. It does not even love the person it resides in. The limit of the ego’s 'love' is to decide that you are a temporary ally and thus it will protect you for the benefit of its own use. Only a soul can accept and return love. Everything else is manipulation. Fragile arrangements. They are, at best, suspicious and, at worst, vicious.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Relationships are valuable for healing and learning how to love.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Love is its own reward. We do not have to worry about what other people think about us. We can never feel alone or isolated when we understand that it is impossible for love to leave our side. Love is all around us.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Be forgiving but wise.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“If we could live in the consecrated spaces of happiness and forget the past, how easily the world would transform.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Don’t feed the drama monster. It’s insatiable and has no friends.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“The worst person to get away from is oneself.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Beautiful things come together one stitch at a time.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Love is its own reward.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“The more we veer away from our true nature, the more unhappy we feel. When we align with our better self, we feel happy and content again.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“You have to stay out of the game. It’s deadly and no one ever wins. Everyone is a loser. Even seeming wins are short-lived and have the taste of bitterness mixed in with the satisfaction of personal gain. The ego is exclusive by nature. While the spirit seeks to include, the ego is unashamedly manipulative in its culling of people. The intention of self-aggrandisement is barely even covered over. The soul does not see people in terms of what it can gain. It seeks to share. It seeks to create by extension of its own and others’ true nature. The ego is extremely changeable. It has no stability. Constantly guarding against attack and looking out for its own advantage, its perceptions and thus feelings towards others are ever-shifting. This creates unhappiness. The more we veer away from our true nature, the more unhappy we feel. When we align with our better self, we feel happy again. And so the process continues until the spaces between happiness are not as long and arduous. The presence or absence of personal peace is our barometer. It will guide us even if we are not sure of the way.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Put your efforts towards the things in life that enhance your highest self”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“I felt acutely grateful to everyone, everywhere, who does their best by giving what they have to give, no matter what issues they are facing in their own lives.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“If you must dream a dream, at least, make it a happy dream.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Peace; how unassuming you are. Yet, you are king of all the feelings.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“At every step, she paused, withdrew to the inner sanctuary, and asked herself, Does this feel right? Her answer came in the form of peace or tension. If she felt tension, she stepped a different way. If she felt peace, she kept going forward.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Whenever you feel a spark of love or goodwill towards another person – male, female, young or old – feed it so that it will grow. It is not about finding the right person or people. People are not that right. Even if they start out right, we soon have a litany of complaints. The only answer is to be the right person ourselves. Then everything will have a tendency to work together in a good way. And when it does work, don’t then be waving contracts, written or invisible, in front of people. Love that controls is not love but a contract. It says, "You must love me in this way," not "I love you." You have your freedom and life has its own justice so you don’t need to jump into the driving seat before the other person has an opportunity to. Just love. Love freely and genuinely. Love openly and with courage. And forgive, forgive, forgive. People are a mass of problems. Stop remembering them all or there will be no room to create the beautiful moments you wish to cherish in your soul.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“You see the separation of life as very arbitrary at this time.
You are not alone in this assumption.
You have far more connection than you are even vaguely aware of.
You will not lose the love that is yours.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“Think not you can return on the path that leads to the fork.
Taken once, it disappears as the choice lies ahead.
Both roads will lead to somewhere but one will be to nowhere.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“The worst place is at the fork. You can’t keep going the same direction as you came. You have to choose one or other path. Whatever the choice, at least, it is movement. Otherwise, you are just forking around getting nowhere.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“If one can remember that one is here for something more than fragile dreams then one will have passed the first, pivotal test.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“One gets away with a lot when one is in an unchallenging relationship or is too busy to invest in one at all. Mostly, one gets away from oneself.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“We all have two voices, perhaps, many more. Every day, if not every minute, we have to choose which one will get our attention. If we choose the higher one, our suffering will lessen and, quite often, completely disappear but it takes humility and trust. The longer we keep listening to the lower voice, the harder it is to drag ourselves away from it. Nevertheless, all it takes is one second. If we chose something else last week or yesterday or a minute ago, it doesn’t matter. We just need to make another choice right now.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
“The Spirit is as much a jealous lover as the ego. Both guard their path with an uncompromising passion but for very different reasons.”
Donna Goddard, Circles of Separation
