Yesterday I was clever,
so I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise,
so I am changing myself

Authentic Spirituality ->


The function of authentic spirituality
is not to provide security and solace,
but to encourage the seeker to venture out
on the lonely and difficult path of self-knowledge.
So do not be intimidated.
Have confidence in your own spiritual potentiality,
your ability to find your own unique way

Creative ->


The creative is the place where no one else has ever been.
You have to leave the city of your comfort
and go into the wilderness of your intuition.
What you’ll discover will be wonderful.
What you’ll discover will be yourself

~Alan Alda

Self~importance ->


Self-importance is our greatest enemy.
Think about it –
what weakens us is feeling offended by the deeds
and misdeeds of our fellowmen.
Our self-importance requires
that we spend most of our lives
offended by someone

~Carlos Castaneda

Be Yourself


To be one’s self,
and unafraid whether right or wrong,
is more admirable than the easy cowardice
of surrender to conformity
