Einstein realized that time, space, matter, and energy were interchangeable. This single idea deposed the normal world of the five senses with its claim that nothing we see, hear, taste, touch, and smell is reliable. You can do your own visualization to prove this fact to yourself. See yourself sitting on a train moving down the tracks. You [continue reading...]
All of us live in a participatory universe. Once you decide that you want to participate fully, with mind, body, and soul, the paradigm shift becomes personal.
The biggest mystery is how human beings create their own reality—and then forget what they did.
There is a growing body of cosmologists—the scientists who explain the origin and nature of the cosmos—developing theories of a completely new universe, one that is living, conscious, and evolving. Such a universe fits no existing standard model. It’s not the cosmos of quantum physics or the Creation described as the work of an [continue reading...]
If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.
Loving the self, to me, begins with never ever criticizing ourselves for anything. Criticism locks us into the very pattern we are trying to change. Understanding and being gentle with ourselves helps us to move out of it. Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.

I find that when we really love and accept and APPROVE OF OURSELVES EXACTLY AS WE ARE, then everything in life works.
If we choose to believe we are helpless victims and that it’s all hopeless, then the Universe will support us in that belief, and we will just go down the drain. It is vital that we release these foolish, outmoded, negative ideas and beliefs that do not support us and nourish us. Even our concept of God needs to be one that is for us, not against us.
I have found that forgiving and releasing resentment will dissolve even cancer. While this may sound simplistic, I have seen and experienced it working.
Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.
Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there.
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Following our inner guidance may feel risky and frightening at first, because we are no longer playing it safe, doing what we 'should' do, pleasing others, following rules, or deferring to outside authority.
The people we are in relationships with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors, reflecting their beliefs.
We have to understand in a deep way that having what we truly want in life contributes to the general state of human happiness and supports others in creating more happiness for themselves.
We're all just walking each other home.
