Soul Surrender

Just as there are times on a winding walk when you can not the see the road ahead, so too will you lose visibility on your soul’s unfolding. . . If you can find solace in your surrendering to that groundlessness, there is a pleasure possible in this depth of not-knowing, where creativity can use you as a vessel and, for a moment, you can know real freedom in your acquiescence to the numinous. – Toko-pa

“Come in from the cold, into your inner oasis; your treasure island. There’s a fountain of youth there. It’s the well that never runs dry; the gift that keeps on giving. There’s no fear, sadness or suffering there, only love, creativity and gratitude! It’s the center of the youniverse, the source of light, your eternal home where you were never born and will never die.”  ~ Geordie Numata, Deer Spirit Reiki

“What goes on in your mind?” – Lou Reed

You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen. – Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

“Genius is nothing more or less than childhood recaptured at will.” ~ Baudelaire

I don’t believe scientific, personal or artistic breakthroughs of any kind happen because a person thought about it. It’s because they learned how to escape the mind and tap into a larger sense of intelligence. Eureka moments come when we are inspired — and that does not take place in the mind, nor by being consumed with thoughts of anxiety, fear, or worry. They come from developing a relationship with your own inner Observer and distancing from the noise and static in your head so that you can hear your own soul’s longing to talk to you. – Jewel

“Some things are up to us, and some things are not up to us.”— Epictetus, Stoic philosopher

“Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better” — Émile Coué

“Brothers and Sisters, I once believed that God was Truth and I sought God, but Now I know that Truth is God. Seek Truth.” ~ Mohandas Gandhi

“Yesterday I was cleaver so I wanted to change the world, today I am wise so I wish to change myself.” – Rumi

“We do not live in a world of dead matter, but in a universe of living spirit.” – Grandfather David Monongye – Hopi Prophecy Keeper – Hotevilla, AZ.

“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. That’s a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.” — Elizabeth Gilbert

“To forgive is wisdom, to forget is genius. And easier. Because it’s true. It’s a new world every heart beat.” ~ Joyce Cary

“The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.” – Lao Tzu

“I am where I am because I believe in all possibilities.”  ~ Whoopi Goldberg

“Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.” — William James

“Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.” ~ Marie Curie

“Never be limited by other people’s limited imaginations. ” ~ Mae Jemison

It’s the colonization of the mind. Once we colonized other countries for profit and spoils, extracting foreign resources, and draining the value from the lives of others. Now corporations have colonized our heads. They are reorganizing the way that we think and rewiring our neural pathways so we can never get back to where we came from. Our consumption is our consent.Anhoni

“Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.” – Bill Mollison

“Wealth is a deep understanding of the natural world.” – Bill Mollison

“Love is everywhere.” ~ Neil Young

“The evolutionary impulse to make things better that we feel in our souls, is the very same impulse that has been driving the unfolding emergence of the universe. Said in reverse: the cosmological evolution of stars, the biological evolution of organisms, and the cultural evolution of humans are all part of a universal process of becoming.” — Steve McIntosh, Evolution’s Purpose

“If we lose the forests, we lose our only teachers.” – Bill Mollison

“The evident purpose of evolution is to grow toward ever-widening realizations of Beauty, Goodness and Truth.” — Steve McIntosh, Evolution’s Purpose.

“If you’re willing to change your thinking, you can change your life.”
– Louise Hay

“Wonder is the dawn of wisdom.” ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

“Look up here, I’m in Heaven/I’ve got scars that can’t be seen/I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen/Everybody knows me now” – David Bowie, Lazarus

“I am the great I Am (I’m a blackstar)” – David Bowie

“Here I am floating ‘round my tin can/Far above the Moon/Planet Earth is blue/And there’s nothing I can do” — Space Oddity, David Bowie
