“Some people’s words stay inside us and have the power to change us and other people’s words are powerless, no matter how intelligent they may sound.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Trying to get someone interested in us (who is not) is a painful and pointless endeavour. There are many people in the world. Some are for us. Most are not.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“There was nothing about her that was offensive and there was nothing about her that was attention seeking. It was as if her body functioned so well and silently that she barely even noticed it except that she needed it.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Looking is only for those who cannot see.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Relationships always bring about the dissolution of our delusions.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“We assign roles to all the people in our life in an attempt to master it. The roles can be reasonable or preposterous. Either way, when we realise that others do not agree to the terms of the role we have assigned to them, we get upset. Is it their fault? Surely, they are simply following their own dreams. What matters is that we love the dreamer of the dream. It matters that we love people. We mustn’t invent roles for others because we think it will make us happy. Who are we to invent such things? Can the tiny piece of seaweed tell the vast ocean what it must do? What wills to grow, will grow. What wills to flow, will flow.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“What wills to grow, will grow. What wills to flow, will flow.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Creating is higher than healing. It is primal. However, in order to create profoundly, we must first heal.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“What have you got to lose? What are you hanging onto? Trust. You have not come this far to turn back now. You are almost there. Have faith.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“All of creation wants to create through you. You are not your body and you are not in your body. Your body is in Life. Use it until you need it no more and then you will be happy to release it.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Love isn’t a spell. Not if it’s the sort of love that wakes us up. Then it’s a spell-breaker, not a spell-maker.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“There are bound to be problems and life is not perfect but we can be grateful for all the pieces of life that are happy and harmonious. The other pieces will have their own way of falling into place. The less ego there is in both the good and the bad, the more the good things can grow and the bad things will not be fed.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“What changes is the mindset from which he is seeing life. Sometimes, it is higher. Sometimes, it is lower. When it is higher, he is more strongly confident in his attachment to you. When it is lower, he gets pulled by all the offerings of the ego and the people in his life who share those values with him. He doesn’t know that he is constantly gravitating between the two. Otherwise, it would be easy to fix, and it is not. One has to learn to recognise both mindsets and understand the consequences of each.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“There is an aid for helping us to learn how to distinguish between the ego way and the higher way. It is pain. The ego way inevitably leads to pain, even if it seems to temporarily satisfy. The higher way does not. It works. And it works harmoniously. It brings the sort of success that has no bitter after-taste. It is not manipulative. It doesn’t play one person against another. It doesn’t feed anyone’s fantasies. It is honest and it protects the good.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Those who view you as detrimental to their own causes will see you as an enemy, no matter what you think of them. Whatever damage they think they can get away with, they will do. The more the ego wants something, the more vicious it can become. If it is not vicious immediately, it will simply be biding time. Everyone who has come to Earth has chosen the ego and must learn, quickly or slowly, its worthlessness and its venom.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Don’t have a goal in mind when it comes to people. Your value is the love you share with the world. That love will always draw to you what you need. Remain faithful to the spirit you see in others and you will save them a thousand years of tears.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“A thousand years of tears can only be voluntarily avoided,”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Desperation is the door of the Divine.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Everyone on Earth is on Death Row until they find a way out. It’s not so hard to find the way out. The problem is wanting to.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“Do you really want to hold onto empty things? We don’t have to give anything up. They just need transforming. A thousand years of happiness would be much better than another thousand years of tears, don’t you think?”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“The last useless battle;
someone will fall.
Useless but useful,
for nothing, for All.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“She rarely used the dormant fire that was inside her. It was seldom necessary but when it came, it came without apology. It came from Beyond and when present, she had no personal identity. Having no identity and therefore nothing to lose, the force was given free rein. Therein lay its power.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“They did normal things, but they did them with abnormal love and inclusiveness.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“To an ego, being ignored is equivalent to annihilation. To not exist is any ego’s greatest fear. It is a warranted fear because the ego does, in fact, get annihilated in proportion to the growth of one’s spiritual realisation. However, the rewards of spiritual development so outshine the feeble offerings of the ego that it is an insignificant price to pay. Does one begrudge paying a small price for something invaluable?”
Donna Goddard, Faith
“The last useless battle;
someone will fall.
Useless but useful,
for nothing, for All.

The one that falls is our own small seIf. Indeed, it must fall. Every battle is useless because, ultimately, they are not necessary. Nevertheless, every battle is important because we cannot win a battle that we don’t know we should be fighting. It is all for nothing and also all for everything.”
Donna Goddard, Faith
