WISDOM FROM MANY WELLS

 

"Open My Eyes That I May See"
- Elder Silvercloud
  
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone, and as we let our 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."
-1994 Inaugural Speech, Nelson Mandela, written by Marianne Williamson
  
"I do not see a delegation for the four-footed. I see no seat for the eagles. We forget and we consider ourselves superior. But we are after all a mere part of the Creation. And we must consider to understand where we are. And we stand somewhere between the mountain and the Ant. Somewhere and only there as part and parcel of the Creation."
(From an address to the Non-Governmental Organizations
of the United Nations, Geneva, Switzerland, 1977)
- Oren Lyons, Onondaga
  
"I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. "
- Lao-tz
  
"One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love."
- Sophocles
  
"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."
- Albert Einstein
  
"And remember, too, you can stay at home, safe in the familiar illusion of certainty. Do not set out without realizing that "the way" is not without danger. Everything good is costly, and the development of the personality is one of the most costly of all things. It will cost you your innocence, your illusions, your certainty."
- Sheldon Kopp
  
God said, Let us make man in our image after our likeness. The word likeness in the original Hebrew means an exact duplication in kind... Adam was an exact duplication of God's kind.
- Charles Capps
  
"Can you walk on water? You have done no better than a straw. Can you fly in the air? You have done no better than a blue-bottle. Conquer your heart; then you may become somebody."
- Ansari of Herat
  
The Son of God is each and every human being when he has attained the highest level of surrender to God’s will.
- Guru Maharaj Ji
  
"Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other."
- Carl Gustav Jung  
  
"Thus survival is in attainment of the Way, not in smallness; ruin is in losing the Way, not in greatness The rulers of a confused country strive for expansion of territory. not for humanity and justice; they strive for high positions not for the Way and virtue. This is abandoning the means of survival and creating the causes of destruction."
- Lao Tzu
    
"Do not confuse peace of mind with spaced-out insensitivity. A truly peaceful mind is very sensitive, very aware."
- Tenzin Gyatso
  The Dalai Lama
  
The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself
- Helen Schucman
  A Course in Miracles
  
"You can't solve a problem on the same level you created it."
- Albert Einstein
  
"The time has come to think more wisely, hasn't it? Afflictive emotions - our jealousy, anger, hatred, fear - can be put to an end. When you realize that these emotions are only temporary, that they always pass on like clouds in the sky, you also realize they can ultimately be abandoned."
- Tenzin Gyatso
  The Dalai Lama
  
"The dark moment the caterpillar calls the end of the world is the sun-filled moment the butterfly calls the beginning."
- From The Science of Mind
  
"If you would seek the Truth you must go out, far away from the limitations of the human mind and heart and there discover it, and that Truth is within yourself. Is it not much simpler to make Life itself the goal-Life itself the guide, the Master and the God-than to have mediators, gurus, who must inevitably step down the Truth, and hence betray it?"
- J. Krishnamurti
  
"To what is One, sages give many a title."
- The Rigveda,
  pada 1.164.46c
  
"The destruction of your neighbor is the destruction of yourself."
- Tenzin Gyatso
  The Dalai Lama
  
"It is only the religious man who can bring about a fundamental revolution, but the man who has a belief, a dogma, who belongs to any particular religion, is not a religious man. The religious man is he who understands the whole process of so-called religion, the various forms of dogma, the desire to be secure through certain formulas of ritual and belief. Such an individual breaks away from the framework of organized religion, from all dogma and belief, and seeks the highest; and it is he who is truly revolutionary because every other form of revolution is fragmentary and, therefore, inevitably brings about further problems. But the man who is seeking to find out what is truth, what is God, is the real revolutionary because the discovery of what is truth is an integrated response and not a fragmentary response."
- J. Krishnamurti
