“Even in the midst of the raging storm, pause long enough to remind yourself that it’s all a miracle. And when the pain is unbearable and you think you can no longer go on, remember this: On that day in the future when you’re gasping for your final breath, you will gladly take back even your worst day, to live over again…to watch the sunrise, to smell the flowers, to hear your child’s laughter, to hold the ones you love just one more time. With that in mind, laugh in the face of the storm. Find the courage that lies deep within. Let adversity fuel your determination. Nobody said it would be easy. You only fail if you give up….so don’t.” – JSB

“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.” ~Terence McKenna

“Nobody can say anything about you. Whatsoever people say is about themselves. But you become very shaky, because you are still clinging to a false center. That false center depends on others, so you are always looking to what people are saying about you. And you are always following other people, you are always trying to satisfy them. You are always trying to be respectable, you are always trying to decorate your ego. This is suicidal. Rather than being disturbed by what others say, you should start looking inside yourself…

Whenever you are self-conscious you are simply showing that you are not conscious of the self at all. You don’t know who you are. If you had known, then there would have been no problem— then you are not seeking opinions. Then you are not worried what others say about you— it is irrelevant!When you are self-conscious you are in trouble. When you are self-conscious you are really showing symptoms that you don’t know who you are. Your very self-consciousness indicates that you have not come home yet.”
