    Wink Inspirational Quotes


    Anger is the enemy of non-violence and pride is a monster that swallows it up.
    Mahatma Gandhi

    An opponent is entitled to the same regard for his principles as we would expect others to have for ours. Non-violence demands that we should seek every opportunity to win over opponents.
    Mahatma Gandhi

    An eye for an eye makes us all blind.
    Mahatma Gandhi

    All compromise is based on give and take, but there can be no give and take on fundamentals. Any compromise on mere fundamentals is a surrender. For it is all give and no take.Mahatma Gandhi

    INSPIRING QUOTES : SUFFERING AND RENEWAL






    - The Root of Suffering is Attachment.

    The Buddha


    - "We point to our unhappy circumstances to rationalize our negative feelings. This is the easy way out. It takes, after all, very little effort to feel victimized." ~

    Elizabeth Kubler-Ross


    - "If a man talks of his misfortunes there is something in them that is not disagreeable to him; for where there is nothing but pure misery there never is any recourse to the mention of it." ~

    Samuel Johnson



    - "People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar." ~

    Thich Nhat Hanh


    - "Although the world is very full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it." ~

    Helen Keller


    - "Making things positive doesn't mean a sunny outlook; it means making the choice to see problems as opportunities. Every problem and difficult situation is embedded with a solution - the adventure lies in finding the solution." ~

    Brahma Kumaris



    - "To live a life of gratitude is to open our eyes to the countless ways in which we are supported by the world around us. Such a life provides less space for our suffering because our attention is more balanced. We are more often occupied with noticing what we are given, thanking those who have helped us, and repaying the world in some concrete way for what we are receiving." ~

    Gregg Krech

    Inspiring Quotes : AWAKENING



    -"You think of yourselves as humans searching
    for a spiritual awakening, when in fact you are spiritual beings attempting
    to cope with a human awakening. Seeing yourselves from the perspective
    of the spirit within will help you to remember why you came here
    and what you came here to do."

    -The Group


    - "A human being is a part of the whole, called by us 'Universe,'
    a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts
    and feelings as something separated from the rest -
    a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind
    of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection
    for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from
    this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living
    creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve
    this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself
    a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security." ~

    Albert Einstein


    - "Love is how it feels to recognize our essential unity.
    Knowing you are one with all, you find yourself in love with all." ~

    Timothy Freke


    - "Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted.
    Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world." ~

    Hans Margolius


    - "It is possible to experience an awakening in this life through realizing
    just how precious each moment, each mental process,
    and each breath truly is." ~

    Christy Turlington


    - "That is the real spiritual awakening, when something
    emerges from within you that is deeper than who
    you thought you were. So, the person is still there,
    but one could almost say that something more
    powerful shines through the person." ~

    Eckhart Tolle

    Inspiring Quotes : FREEDOM



    - The Freedom that we are looking for
    is the freedom to be ourselves, to express ourselves.
    -Don Miguel Ruiz



    - "The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so
    absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion." ~
    Albert Camus


    That freedom is within us, and it is based on mindfulness.
    As Jeffrey Borenstein said, "Freedom is that instant between
    when someone tells you to do something and when you decide how to respond."


    - "Responsibility is the price of freedom." ~
    Elbert Hubbard


    C. Wright Mills explains what this responsibility entails:
    "Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases;
    neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives.
    Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices,
    to argue over them - and then, the opportunity to choose."
    And Thucydide goes further: "The secret of happiness is freedom.
    The secret of freedom is courage."
    Freedom lies in being bold, being yourself.


    - "You find freedom inside - nowhere else.
    In the heart of every being is that one space which is free,
    which is filled with Peace, and which is full of Love." ~
    Prem Rawat


    It is our essence and as such it is so precious.
    As Moshe Dayan said, "Freedom is the oxygen of the soul."



    - "While I was chained to a wall and being tortured, I realized,
    through the screaming of my mind, that even in that shackled,
    bloody helplessness, I was still free: free to hate the men who
    were torturing me, or to forgive them. It doesn't sound like much,
    I know. But in the flinch and bite of the chain, when it's all
    you've got, that freedom is a universe of possibility. And the
    choice you make between hating and forgiving,
    can become the story of your life." ~
    Gregory David Roberts


    As Viktor Frankl said, "Everything can be taken from a man
    but one thing; the last of the human freedoms -
    to choose one's attitude in any given set of
    circumstances, to choose one's own way."

    Inspiring Quotes : ON MARRIAGE & PARENTHOOD



    - Love one another
    But Make not a Bond of Love.
    Let it rather be a moving sea
    between the shores of your souls.
    -Kahlil Gibran



    - "If you love somebody, let them go,
    for if they return, they were always yours.
    And if they don't, they never were." ~
    Kahlil Gibran



    - "You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
    You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
    Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
    But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
    And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

    "Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
    Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
    Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
    Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
    Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
    Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

    "Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
    For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
    And stand together yet not too near together:
    For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
    And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow."

    poem by Kahlil Gibran


    - "Your children are not your children.
    They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself.
    They come through you, but not from you.
    And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
    You may house their bodies, but not souls.
    You may strive to be like them,
    but seek not to make them like you.
    You are the bows from which
    your children as living arrows are sent forth.." ~
    Kahlil Gibran

    Inspiring Quotes : LIFE'S UPS AND DOWNS



    - "It is in darkness that you find the light;
    it is in storm that you find peace; it is in sorrow that you find joy
    because life is a paradox and a polarity." ~
    -S. Birch

    It's life's ups and downs that make it worth living.
    Imagine watching a film with no ups and downs...
    you'd go to sleep, wouldn't you!
    Like in the cardiogram above, the ups and downs
    very often introduce the potential for loving relationship...
    it's up to us to sculpt that creatively.



    - "Suffering is arguing with reality." ~
    Byron Katie

    You can either be knocked down by the things that strike you,
    or you can absorb them, and learn from them in a positive way.





    - "It's not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it." ~
    Byron Katie


    Best not to label things as good or bad, especially totally or always.
    We suffer least when we can accept reality just as it is, and not to resist
    seeing the truth. That's not to say do nothing to correct or improve things,
    but we benefit most when we open our heart in compassion
    and our mind in appreciation.

    Inspiring Quotes : RELEASING EMOTIONS



    - Choosing not to act on an angry impulse
    and to feel the pain that lies beneath it, is a very courageous thing to do . ~
    -Gary Zukav



    - "The key is to not resist or rebel against emotions or
    to try to get around them by devising all sorts of tricks;
    but to accept them directly, as they are." ~
    Takahisa Kora

    After all, they are our response, we own them.
    They may be instinctual, but we do have choice, we can
    be mindful and take control, and choose an appropriate
    emotional response that is not self-defeating.





    - "Instead of resisting any emotion, the best way
    to dispel it is to enter it fully, embrace it and
    through your resistance." ~
    Deepak Chopra


    Acceptance is the key - not splitting off
    from our own feelings, that doesn't make sense.



    - "Imagination is the beginning of creation.
    You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine,
    and at last, you create what you will." ~
    Doc Childre


    There are rational emotional responses appropriate
    to the current circumstances, and there are responses
    dominated by imprinted patterns from the past,
    powered by the fear that we felt back then...
    our past decisions, beliefs, conditioning, assumptions,
    intolerances, over-generalizing, negative thinking,
    egotism, and so on.



    - "Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge." ~
    Audre Lorde


    Don't let emotions push you into action or reaction.
    Just allow them to be and to speak to you. Once
    they are acknowledged, fully experienced and
    accepted, their lessons are learned and
    their energy is released.




    - "When we realize that we are creating an emotion,
    and can take responsibility for that, the underlying beliefs
    come into the open and we can see more easily what
    is appropriate and what isn't." ~
    Peter Shepherd


    People are naturally somewhat afraid of emotions,
    in that they can be 'carried away' by them, even to
    lose themselves and their sanity if they are not careful.
    It is only really by successfully practicing Releasing
    that one comes to understand that we are truly
    the master of emotions and not their slave.

    Inspiring Quotes : PATIENCE, THE ART OF INTELLIGENT WAITING



    - "The key to everything is patience.
    You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it." ~
    -Arnold H. Glasgow


    One cannot hurry the ripening process of a fruit,
    force a baby to develop faster, nor increase
    the planet's momentum around our Sun.





    - "Be patient with yourself.
    Self-growth is tender;
    it's holy ground.
    There is no greater investment" ~
    Stephen Covey


    Saint Augustine said,
    "Patience is the companion of wisdom."
    Can you relax enough and see your
    learning through to acquire the
    understanding and wisdom
    that is the result of long practical experience?



    - "The richest person is the one
    who is contented with what he has." ~
    Robert C. Savage


    Where does impatience come from?
    Jafree Ozwald says, "It's an ego based
    energy that stems from not choosing to
    be at peace with what is. It's an old habit
    brought on by not loving yourself,
    your body, your friends, family, and
    your experience of this world just the
    way it is." You may want things to be better,
    and work toward that, but the stress comes
    when you make your work a battle
    rather than a loving process.
