My inspirational breath into these...
... the purpose of your life, and each life, *is in its being*. That being may include certain actions, but the acts themselves are only important in that they spring out of the essence of your life, *which simply by being* is bound to fulfill its purposes
There are people that at times have abreathtaking inspiration and come up with a wonderful image or aphorism.
In that very moment I am in them and they are in Me.
I inspire all that is beautiful, all that makes Man excell himself. Goodness, idealism, poetry and lyricism, music and melody.
Listen to Me, I Am Your GOD
I Am GOD
I Am The Almighty
I am the Breath of Life
The Spirit of the Universe
Listen...Here's a few friends of Mine:
Whatever it is, if it doesn't make you happy, walk away, give it away to someone else who wants it. Let it be THEIR next dream; let it flee from you. You're emptying out your limitations when you do that. Then you have ROOM to grow, to allow magnificent things to fill the vacuum of those seemingly empty places. When you hold onto yesterday, when you hold onto dead and dying adventures, you have no room in your box for greatness...My friend Mark Twain:
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubtMy extremely good friend Albert Einstein:
If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shutand more from inspired others...

Delicious Ambiguity." - Gilda RadnerMake space in your heart for these:

Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.

begin it well and serenely

to be encumbered with your old nonsense
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The less you think of yourself, the less you become. The less you give credit to yourself for having intelligence, the more of an imbecile you become. The less beautiful you think you are, the more ugly you become. The more impoverished you think you are, the more wretched you become - because YOU have ordained it to be so." - Ramtha
"Each entity knows before he comes here that he is not coming back to be the grand beauty or the wealthy entity or the wretched pauper. He comes here because he wants to live here and to be enterprising in emotional learning on this level - to obtain EMOTIONAL understandings that he wants to fulfill within his being. That is the true treasure of your life experiences, whether here or on other planes or dimensions, for that is the only thing that remains with you throughout eternity." - Ramtha
"To be desireless, there is nothing wrong with that at all. I will tell you why. Most that are filled with unquenchable desires never know who they are for they are too busy wanting. When you realize that everything you want is within you, then the Source brings a treasure at your doorstep and leaves it there every moment of being. And you have everything you ever wanted - YOU
." - Ramtha

صِرَاطِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ أَلَا إِلَى اللَّهِ تَصِيرُ الأمُورُ The path of Allah, Whose is whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth ~ now surely to Allah do all affairs eventually come
"When we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Marianne Williamson

"You can't lose anything because you never had it. The only thing you've ever really had is yourself." - Deepak Chopra
"Many have not been told that birth into a physical world is a death in the spiritual worlds from which they came. Hence most are never aware that death in the physical world is merely a birth into other dimensions of life." - Jesse Holmes
"Few people will dispute that in the world of nature everything reacts to an exact law; and physical as these laws seem in their outworking, they all originate from the spiritual universe. There can be no haphazard methods, for nature is very drastic with delinquents. This also happens in the spiritual spheres where the smallest action calls forth an exact reaction. This means that man's thoughts become his creations, that they become like angels of good and evil to him; so that when he views his life from some higher plane of existence, he well realizes the disastrous nature of those mental creations of his - of gloom, depression and selfishness - which were and are his mental children. "This has affected me deeply since my arrival here, for I was wont to create such characters, scenes and word-pictures. Mine was a vivid imagination; and, while I gave forth many a picture of joy, homeliness and beauty, my pen also depicted scenes of crudity, ugliness, crime and horror. While recognizing that such pictures may by their very contrast teach their lesson, on the other hand creations of ugliness and terror are apt to live on in men's minds, and fill them with violent and unhealthy vibrations. Now I gaze down into the lives of men and women who have been considerably influenced by me for either good or ill. This I tell you only to illustrate the lesson. "Some day every man will attain either the joy or the terror of seeing the effect of his creations, beautiful or the reverse; no matter whether they are merely fictitious characters or actual conditions of life resulting from actions of his which have considerably influenced the lives of others. He will then see his own personal contribution, be it positive or negative, to the collective whole."
- Arthur Conan Doyle, from the "after-death" state
"Don't feel sorry for yourself if you have chosen the wrong road - turn around!" - Edgar Cayce
"Any pain that comes is to make you understand the nature of joy more deeply and bring you into joy." - Mother Meera
"When you know that you are eternal you can play your true role in time. When you know you are divine you can become completely human. When you know you are one with God you are free to become absolutely yourself..." - Mother Meera
"One common mistake is to think that one reality is THE reality. You must always be prepared to leave one reality for a greater one." - Mother Meera
"For the mind to flower it has to go beyond what it knows
." - Mother Meera
"The true experience of bliss is without words." - Mother Meera
"In silence one can receive more because all one's activities become concentrated at one point. There is only one real rhythm; in silence you hear it. When you live to the rhythm of this silence, you become it, slowly; everything you do, you do to it." - Mother Meera
"Yet it is in this loneliness that the deepest activities begin. It is here that you discover act without motion, labor that is profound repose, vision in obscurity, and, beyond all desire, a fulfillment whose limits extend to infinity
." - Thomas Merton
"Every moment and every event of every man's life on earth plants something in his soul. For just as the wind carries thousands of winged seeds so each moment brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptibly in the minds and wills of men. Most of these unnumbered seeds perish and are lost, because men are not prepared to receive them: for such seeds as these cannot spring up anywhere except in the good soil of freedom, spontaneity, and love." - Thomas Merton
"At the root of all war is fear; not so much the fear men have of one another as the fear they have of everything. It is not merely that they do not trust one another; they do not even trust themselves.... They cannot trust anything, because they have ceased to trust in God." - Thomas Merton
"We have to have a deep, patient compassion for the fears of men and irrational mania of those who hate or condemn us... We have to consider the fact that in its provocative aspect, non-violence may tend to harden the opposition and to confirm people in their righteous blindness." - Thomas Merton
"If you who are seeking love and truth cannot rise above the illusion of turmoil, how can those who are locked in it be helped? It is you who are empowered through the strength of your love, your commitment to truth, who will bring about the elevation of consciousness of those who are wracked in such fear that they would destroy the world rather than acknowledge their own terror." - Emmanuel
"There is never any justification for violence, for hatred, for murder. Those who indulge in violence for whatever reason are themselves changed, and the purity of their [soul] purpose adulterated." - Seth
"With a sense of humor, hate is all too funny and therefore it loses its power. Love, on the other hand, even with a sense of humor, becomes highly precious and large enough so that it can contain old hatreds quite nicely." - Seth
"When you look into yourself, the very effort involved extends the limitations of your consciousness, expands it, and allows the egotistical self to use its abilities that it often does not realize it possesses." - Seth
"If you want to know what you think of yourself, then ask yourself what you think of others and you will find the answer." - Seth
"Say to yourself 'That is in the past. Now in this new moment, this new present, I am already beginning to change for the better.'" - Seth
"In spontaneity there is a discipline that utterly escapes you, and an order beyond any that you know. Spontaneity knows its own order." - Seth
"The people that you can help now and the particular good that you can do, can never be done in precisely the same way." - Seth
"That is why I am teaching you how to become more unlimited in your thought processes. For the more unlimited your thinking becomes, the more unlimited your life shall become - wherever you are. The greater the heaven you create here, within your own kingdom of thought and emotion, the greater the heaven you will experience when you leave this plane. Those whose thoughts are steeped in guilt, judgment of self and others, and bitterness and hatred toward their brothers, will leave this plane only to continue to experience those attitudes until they learn from them - until they have had their gut full of them and realize that there are grander ways to be and greater heavens to experience." - Ramtha
"Wisdom is accumulated emotion
. That is what makes each entity different from all others who come to this plane. You will not experience the things you have already experienced and understood, for you will have no DESIRE to. The things that you have yet to understand, adventures that hold the promise of fulfillment and wisdom, you will always be drawn to, for they will excite you, tempt you, intrigue you, puzzle you. If you will simply allow yourself to be, and listen to the urgings within your being, the feelings within you, you will always be experiencing what you are most needing in order to expand your wondrous self into greater wisdom and perpetual joy." - Ramtha
"As soon as men decide that all means are permitted to fight an evil, then their good becomes indistinguishable from the evil that they set out to destroy." -- Christopher Dawson

"When the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem begins to resemble a nail." -- Abraham Maslow

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." --Margaret Mead
"If you who are seeking love and truth cannot rise above the illusion of turmoil, how can those who are locked in it be helped? It is you who are empowered through the strength of your love, your commitment to truth, who will bring about the elevation of consciousness of those who are wracked in such fear that they would destroy the world rather than acknowledge their own terror." -- Emmanuel
"The heart that breaks open can contain the whole universe
." -- Joanna Macy
"Every human being is your counterpart
. Every other human being possesses and embodies aspects of yourself: your dreams, your sorrows, your hope that your life will not turn out to be a joke. For each of us there was a time when the world was young, a springtime of spirit that was later tested by the winters of discontent; and in the midst of each of our lives lies the haunting shadow of death. Therefore we are all quite alike; indeed at the core we are all one, all lost - and found - in the same mysterious enterprise that is life. Hold this in your heart as you go about your day, and the world will cease to be inhabited by strangers, and the burden of life itself will no longer be a process of loneliness." - Daphne Rose KingmaSome from my good advocate John Donne:
"And into that gate they shall enter, and in that house they shall dwell, where there shall be no Cloud nor Sun, no darkenesse nor dazzling, but one equall light, no noyse nor silence, but one equall musick, no fears nor hopes, but one equal possession, no foes nor friends, but one equall communion and Identity, no ends nor beginnings, but one equall eternity."and this excellent rendition of My Entity:
"We can express God himselfe in no clearer termes, nor in termes expressing more Dignity, then in saying we cannot expresse him."And here's my friend Mohandas K. Gandhi:
Peace will not come out of a clash of arms but out of justice lived and done by unarmed nations in the face of odds.
Democracy and violence can ill go together.
Evolution of democracy is not possible if we are not prepared to hear the other side.
Hatred ever kills, love never dies such is the vast difference between the two. What is obtained by love is retained for all time. What is obtained by hatred proves a burden in reality for it increases hatred.
It may be long before the law of love will be recognized in international affairs. The machineries of government stand between and hide the hearts of one people from those of another.
To forgive is not to forget. The merit lies in loving in spite of the vivid knowledge that the one that must be loved is not a friend. There is no merit in loving an enemy when you forget him for a friend.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Violent means will give violent freedom.
However much I may sympathize with and admire worthy motives, I am an uncompromising opponent of violent methods even to serve the noblest of causes.
Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.
Man and his deed are two distinct things. Whereas a good deed should call forth approbation, and a wicked deed disapprobation, the doer of the deed, whether good or wicked always deserves respect or pity as the case may be.
Hate the sin and not the sinner is a precept which though easy enough to understand is rarely practiced, and that is why the poison of hatred spreads in the world.
Non-violence and cowardice are contradictory terms. Non-violence is the greatest virtue, cowardice the greatest vice. Non-violence springs from love, cowardice from hate. Non-violence always suffers, cowardice would always inflict suffering. Perfect non-violence is the highest bravery. Non-violent conduct is never demoralizing, cowardice always is.
Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.
Destruction is not the law of humans. Man lives freely only by his readiness to die, if need be, at the hands of his brother, never by killing him. Every murder or other injury, no matter for what cause, committed or inflicted on another is a crime against humanity.
Man's nature is not essentially evil. Brute nature has been known to yield to the influence of love. You must never despair of human nature.
It is good to see ourselves as others see us. Try as we may. We are never able to know ourselves fully as we are, especially the evil side of us. This we can do only if we are not angry with our critics but will take in good heart whatever they might have to say.
It is the law of love that rules mankind. Had violence, i.e. hate, ruled us we should have become extinct long ago. And yet, the tragedy of it is that the so-called civilized men and nations conduct themselves as if the basis of society was violence.
Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man...Finally, to conclude with warning words from Steven Weinberg:
With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things, and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
It is the inner soul of all beings.
From it comes fire whose fuel is the sun,
from the moon, rain, plants on the earth;
the male pours seed in the female;
thus creatures are produced from the SpiritAMEN

Baruchj Shem k'vod makchuso l'olom vo-ed
Barukh Shem k'vod malkhuto l'olam va-ed
V-ohavto es Adonoy Eloecho b-chol l'vovcho u-v-chol naf'sh'cho u-v-chol m'odecho
V-ahavta et Adonai Elohecha b-chol l'vavcha u-v-chol naf'sh'cha u-v-chol m'odecha
V-hoyu ha-d'vorim ho-ayleh asher onochi m'tzav'cho ha-yom al-l'vovecho
V-hayu ha-d'varim ha-ayleh asher anochi m'tzav'cha ha-yom al l'vavecha
Ani Adonly Elohaychem, Adonoy Elohaychem emes
Ani Adonai Elohaychem, Adonai Elohaycham emet
אמן AMEN آمين
