    ‘Nobody drowns by falling into the water, merely by staying there. Storms no longer need to frighten us when we have got better at handling the ship of our life. And it isn’t the spiritual mountain we have to climb that wears us out, but the pebbles in our shoes. The most difficult one is the earthly personality we have developed in the course of our previous lifetimes.’ Anon.

    A birth certificate shows that we were born.
    A death certificate shows that we died.
    Pictures show that we lived.
    But only the footprints in the hearts of those we leave behind
    Prove that we conducted our lives true to our real nature,
    Which is love.
    Many people walk in and out of our lives,
    But only true friends leave theirs in our hearts.

    ‘Even when we think we can give no more, when someone is in need, our Highest Self supplies us with the inner strength to reach out for them. That’s why it’s sometimes possible to keep going long after we think we cannot go any more.’ Anon.

    ‘It takes a long time until we have evolved into the person we would like to be. Take heart that happens to everybody. And when we look back from where we are now, we may be able to recognise that the people who treated us badly were in truth our best teachers, because they showed us how we do not want to be. For that let’s give thanks to the great wisdom of the Universe for placing them in our life.’ Anon.

    How about looking into the distance and imagining the person you really would like to be, and then get to work on shaping and moulding your character make-up to fit the picture of your dream - grounding it in this way? :)

    ‘Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it, or because it is spoken and rumoured by many, or because it is found written in your religious books, or because it emanates from your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. When you find after observation and analysis that anything agrees with your reasoning and is conducive to the good and benefit of all, accept it and conduct your life by it.’ The Buddha

    The Roman emperor and thinker Marcus Aurelius, 121-180 AD, said: ‘People seek retreats for themselves, houses in the country, sea-shores and mountains and thou too art wont to desire such things very much. But this is altogether a mark of the most common sort of people, for it is in thy power whenever thou shalt choose to retire into thyself. For nowhere is there more quiet or freedom from trouble than when human beings retreat into their own souls.’
