Reading, done right, is transformative.
Listening well is a spiritual discipline. It connects people deeply.
Our own timelines rarely match the pace of events. A measure of patience can be helpful to synch up the inner and the outer.
No matter what you do, there are some people you can never reach. It's not your fault. Let it go and move on.
If someone slights you or insults you, it's more often about them than it is about you. Healthy souls respect others and show kindness.
The unknown is where the greatest things happen. And yet, most people are afraid to venture there. Curiosity and the boldness of love can alone launch out well and conquer.
Courage is often a small inclination of the heart toward what's right and what needs to be done. It's not flashy or heroic. It's just good.
Most of us have a self awareness deficit that hamstrings our ability to do good in the world. That's why Socrates said, "Know yourself!"
Yes. The world is as it is. However, nevertheless, you are worthy of high thoughts, lofty deeds, and lovingkindness in your own heart.
Don't let the news or gossip or the siren song of social media distract you from your own proper path. Anything that stops you robs us all.
We should be thankful from our first conscious breath each day. There's good to be done, beauty to be seen, and love to be shown.
