Let them see that, whatever opinion they hold of you, they have your respect and good will but not your deference.
Never court anyone’s good opinion, but hear people’s opinions impersonally, deferring to wisdom, but never to ignorance.
- Swami Kriyananda
Everything is energy, so whatever energy you entertain, hold, and grow in your body and mind will show up later on in your life. Why? Because you attracted it with your energy! So do you want a more prosperous, joyous, and peaceful life? Do you want more fun? What else do you want? If you hold and grow those energies that you want in your ideal life, then you are now on a path, a path of awesomeness if you will, that will create your dreams!

Either you are well or you are sick.
If you are well, there's nothing to worry about.
But if you are sick,
There are only two things to worry about:
Either you get well, or you die.
If you get well, there's nothing to worry about.
But if you die, there are only two things to worry about:
Either you will go to Heaver or Hell.
If you go to Heaven, there's nothing to worry about.
But if you go to Hell
You'll be so busy shaking hands with friends
You won't have time to worry.

Motivation is the characteristic that helps you achieve your goal. It is the drive that pushes you to work hard and reach whatever it is that you are after. It is the energy that gives you the strength to get up and keep going - even when things are not going your way.
Unfortunately, we cannot buy motivation - it is not something that is bottled up and sold in shops. The good news though is that we can all cultivate this 'motivation'. The only thing we need though is a desire to change. We then need to work on ourselves, conquer our fears and push ourselves forward to reach our desired destination.
Because what we have, it’s gonna last
You make me smile
Your worth my while
You let me know how you feel
Which lets me know you’re the real deal
You let me see, what you mean to me
Without you, who knows where I’d be?
When I’m not with you, I feel blue
Whoever knew, our love would be true?
When I think of you
There’s no other clue
How much I care for you
In so little time, I made you mine
And we’re gonna last, til the end of time!!

Your life has an inner purpose and an outer purpose. Inner purpose concerns Being and is primary. Outer purpose concerns doing and it is secondary. Your inner purpose is to awaken. It is as simple as that. You share that purpose with every other person on the planet - because it is the purpose of humanity. Your inner purpose is an essential part of the purpose of the whole, the universe and its emerging intelligence. Your outer purpose can change over time. It varies greatly from person to person. Finding and living in alignment with the inner purpose is the foundation for fulfilling your outer purpose. It is the basis for true success. Without that alignment, you can still achieve certain things through effort, struggle, determination, and sheer hard work or cunning. But there is no joy in such endevor, and it invariably ends in some form of suffering.

As long as we have hope, we have direction, the energy to move, and the map to move by. We have a hundred alternatives, a thousand paths and an infinity of dreams. Hopeful, we are halfway to where we want to go; hopeless, we are lost forever.

Giving of yourself, even if it is simply sending someone else thoughts of love, hope, and peace is the easiest thing in the world to do. And you will be blessed many times over because it will make you feel so good.

we never listen save through judgements, comparisons and remembrances.
The very naming of the flower, the bird, is a distraction.
The mind is never still to look, to listen.

Finding someone else to blame for lack of joy is a facade that relives us of responsibility for our thoughts, feelings and emotions. However, we are always responsible for what we are thinking, and our thoughts act like a magnet attracting what we focus on. By taking a gentle approach with ourselves and others, even when our thoughts run astray, we simply cannot be angry at our spouse, our boss, our government or the rain. Spiritual living cultivates that gentleness and awakens us to the joy of living.

Many people are a little nervous about smiling. They don't think their smile looks good, or they think that smiling makes them look unprofessional or vulnerable. It's true that a smile does show a little vulnerability, but that's part of what makes it so powerful. No matter how professional, intelligent, or in control you think a serious face (or worse, a frown) makes you appear, people almost always respond better to a smile.

You’re unique and one of a kind.
Your Life can be what you want it to be.
Take the days just one at a time.
Count your blessings, not your troubles.
You’ll make it through whatever comes along.
Within you are so many answers.
Understand, have courage, be strong.
Don’t put limits on yourself.
So many dreams are waiting to be realized.
Decisions are too important to leave to chance.
Reach for your peak, your goal, your prize.
Nothing wastes more energy than worrying.
The longer one carries a problem the heavier it gets.
Don’t take things too seriously.
Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.
Remember that a little love goes a long way.
Remember that a lot … goes forever.
Remember that friendship is a wise investment.
Life’s Treasures are people … together.
Realize that it’s never too late.
Do ordinary thing in an extraordinary way.
Have health and hope and happiness.
Take the time to wish upon a star.
And don’t ever forget…
for even a day … how very special you are.

Love has no conditions. When we put conditions, when we put barriers and boundaries, then we lose love. Love is condition-less. Love is barrier-less. Look at the moon, sun, stars, trees. . . they are just on for everyone. When our love also flows for everyone, you become very natural.

And wishes for magical fairy-tale things.
As we grow older, we sometimes stop wishing
And just blindly accept what each new day brings.
I am here to tell you 'Don't ever stop wishing!'
'Don't ever give up on your childhood dreams!'
Life will always be full of wonderful surprises
Nothing is ever exactly the way that it seems.
Remember to listen to the kid inside your heart and
Never stop looking for ways to make your dreams come true.
Keep on believing the world is a magical place and you will
Find all the wonderful things that are just waiting for you!

appreciate the uselessness of anger. Instead of getting angry, nuture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances, they
provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience.
- Dalai Lama
of the night, to take a sick child to hospital, or
when your car has broken down some miles from
home, you will know how good it feels to hear the
phrase “I’ll be there.” Being there for another
person is one of life’s greatest gift we can give. When we
are truly present for other people, important
things happen to them and us. We are renewed
in love and friendship. We are restored
emotionally and spiritually. Being there is at the
very core of civility.
