positive thoughts

Here are a few of my favourite quotes and passages that I have collected – I always thought myself to be a positive thinker but was most aggrieved to realise that I am more of a wishful thinker; the difference being that to be a positive thinker you have to put action behind your beliefs, not merely wish things were different.

“Come sit down beside me, I said to myself, and although it doesn’t make sense, I held my own  hand, as a small sign of trust, and together I sat on the fence”.

“At just the time we need to treat ourselves with patience and compassion, we strike the most painful of blows – from within”

“When you feel real to yourself, whether you are alone or with others, and when others  seem real to you even in their differences from you, you can count yourself lucky or blessed”

“Whatever you send out is what you draw back in. Take responsibility for the thoughts and emotions you send out, for they go into the universe and create the events and circumstances that come back to you”

“The search for  the ultimate stuff of the universe ends with the discovery that there isn’t any”

“Any wish that stems from the ego is a wish for nothing and to ask for it is not a request”

“Man is born free and everywhere he is in chains”

“Observe your scene from a quiet corner of your mind, in which there is nothing to do but see”

“You’ll one day discover that death is not what you might imagine, but then neither is life; either may be wondrous, filled with change, or if you don’t awaken, both may turn out to be a considerable disappointment”

“The spirit is life, the mind the builder, the physical the result”

“The organs weep the tears the eyes refuse to shed”

“Untamed energy  meeting internal obstacles – don’t try to manage the addictions, clear the obstructions”

“Anything can be achieved in small deliberate steps but sometimes you need the courage to take a great leap; you can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps”

“The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face”

“Behind what you think you are, you are”

“The quieter you become, the more you hear”

“We generate our own environment. We get exactly what we deserve. How can we resent the life we’ve created for ourselves? Who’s to blame, who’s to credit but us? Who can change it any time we wish but us?”

“Angels fly because they take themselves lightly”

“The important thing is this, to be ready at any moment to sacrifice what you are for what you could become

“Come to the edge’ he said, they said ‘we are afraid’, ‘come to the edge he said’, they came .. he pushed them and they flew”

“Faith is a bird that see the dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark”

“The pathway is smooth; why do you throw rocks before you?”

“You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true; you may have to work for it however”
