“In our willingness to step into the unknown, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.” ~ Deepak Chopra
“We must learn to live by inspiration. That means that we should let the spiritual depths of our being flow through our conversation and into our acts. Our whole purpose is to make the intellect an instrument for the Spirit. We must become artists in living. To live by inspiration means to sense the divine touch in everything; to enter into the spirit of things; to enter into the joy of living.” ~ Ernest Holmes
“By all means be selfish; the right way. Wish yourself well, labor at what is good for you. Destroy all that stands between you and happiness. Be all; love all; be happy; make happy. No happiness is greater.” ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
“If you imagine yourself as separate from the world, the world will appear as separate from you and you will experience desire and fear. I do not see the world as separate from me and so there is nothing for me to desire, or fear.” ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
“If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
