~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Each of our souls can be thought of as a beautiful multifaceted jewel. When we develop a universal moral trait, such as integrity, courage or compassion, one of the soul's facets is impressed upon our personality and becomes visible. Our character is the sum of these attitudinal facets. It is how we are judged, not only by others, but by ourselves, and it is the key to opening the doors of possibility.Together we honor the person looking back in the mirror.” ~ Humanity Healing Team

 

“When we are children, we are more open to our feelings and rely on them to make decisions. As we grow and are educated, we are taught how to think logically and our reliance on our feelings diminishes. A truly wise person has learned to balance the intuitive understanding of his heart with the rational knowledge of his head. It is through this twinned approach that flashes of inspiration can be manifested into physical reality.” ~ Humanity Healing Team

 

"Individuality is only possible if it unfolds from wholeness."
~ David Bohm

"Humility is an often misunderstood virtue. True humility is not merely modesty: it is the ability to step away from ego. When we approach situations with a perspective of humility, we open ourselves to new ideas because we are not being defensive of our own point of view. We move away from being restrictive into being allowing, from being insecure to being secure, from seeking approval to seeking enlightenment. We forget about the need to be right and instead, we open the door to understanding."
~ Humanity Healing Foundation

 

"There are times when we know where we want to go with our lives (or who we want to be) but do not know how to reach that destination. The best way to do this efficiently is to break the long journey into small steps and then take the first step right away. This set the intention and creates momentum. Make a point today to review where you are in your life’s journey and make that first small step towards your goal. You can make something happen, right now." ~ Humanity Healing Foundation

 

"Each of us is an individual note in the music of humanity. When each note is played simply for its own personal reason, the overall sound is one of discord. When we espouse a cooperative attitude, we naturally gravitate to thinking in terms of "us" verses "me". Cooperation is the act of working together in harmony. Think of the music we could create if mankind sang together in brotherhood."
~ Humanity Healing Foundation

"Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple."
~ Dr. Suess

 

"The ultimate expression of love is to love others as we love ourselves. This is difficult to achieve, because while Divine love is perfect, it is channeled through the lens of the human heart. We question the possibility of a pure and altruistic love because we are uncomfortable with the personal sacrifices we imagine. The answer, however, is simple: you can only learn to love another as yourself when you truly learn to love yourself, and that is only possible when you accept God's love." ~ Humanity Healing Foundation

 

"We are whirling through endless space, with an inconceivable speed, all around us everything is spinning, everything is moving, everywhere there is energy. There must be some way of availing ourselves of this energy more directly. Then, with the light obtained from the medium, with the power derived from it, with every form of energy obtained without effort, from the store forever inexhaustible, humanity will advance with giant strides. The mere contemplation of these magnificent possibilities expands our minds, strengthens our hopes and fills our hearts with supreme delight." - Nikola Tesla, 1891

"A wise man adapts himself to circumstances as water shapes itself to the vessel that contains it."

"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives.
It is the one that is the most adaptable to change."
~ Charles Darwin

 

"Life sometimes presents us with opportunities that we do not know how to handle.
An adaptable attitude means being open to any new challenge or changing situation,
regardless of your background, and refusing to place preconceived judgments on it.
Being adaptable can lead to wonderful things; such as new skills or better relationships.
You will grow and become more self-confident. You may not always know where a new life situation will lead,
but if you approach it with a positive attitude and give it your best effort, you will always come out ahead."

“Most of us wear masks in front of others. We do this because we are worried about how our true feelings will be received or if we will be accepted for who we really are.The problem with these masks is that if we do not set them aside, the beautiful individuality behind them slowly fades and we become the face we show to others. Remember that the person whose acceptance you really need to be happy is the one who looks back at you in the mirror.”

 

“Imagination is more than just a pleasant place to rest your mind. It is the font of creativity and innovation. The greatest thinkers throughout history are the ones who use their imaginations to step beyond conventional thinking and look at things from a new perspective. If you try to think about it, you will find it difficult to imagine what things would be like if nobody had ever asked "what if?". Make a point today to stretch your imagination and come up with your own "what if ?.”

 

"To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you."
~ Lewis B. Smedes

“Most of us carry around anger, resentment, jealousy, or some other negative emotion directed to others.
Unless dealt with, they will eventually start to broadly affect the quality of our lives and those around us.
In order to grow to our full potential, we need to release those thoughts and emotions by practicing
forgiveness towards others and learn to forgive ourselves for holding on to the negativity.”

 

“If you journey inside yourself, eventually you will come to your core … and that core is Peace.
When you share that Peace with the world, the world changes around you." ~ Kavi Jezzie Hockaday

 

"Each of us has a Destiny, a Soul Purpose that is for us to discover and fulfill. This is the reason for our existence. It may be a grand undertaking, or a small one. What it will do is advance the collective Human Condition. You will know you have found it by the resonance in your soul and the understanding of its benefit to others. The world we are experiencing today is the result of our collective consciousness, and if we want a new world, each of us must start taking responsibility for helping create it."
~ Rosemary Fillmore Rhea

"The strongest oak tree of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It's the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for its existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun." ~ Napoleon Hill

"Having a divine sense of inner purpose creates a strong energy field of a specific frequency
that will produce world transformation."
~ Rysa

"Humanity shall require a new manner of thinking, if they are to survive." ~ Albert Einstein

 

Master Lao Tzu said..."knowing others is wisdom; knowing the Self is enlightenment.
Mastering others requires force; mastering the self needs strength."

 

“Life often faces us with challenges that appear insurmountable and the desire to give up on a dream grows strong. This is when we need to look inward for inspiration. There is a fountain of inner strength in the heart of each of us and from this flows the Gift of Fortitude. Fortitude gives you the courage to face and conquer your doubts. When you reach a point where you are tempted to quit or run away, it is time to reassess your methods, but not your dream.” ~ Humanity Healing Foundation

"Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light."
~ Albert Schweitzer

 

"We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own."
~ Ben Sweetland

 

"Sometimes in life we find ourselves in difficult places and not understanding why we are facing such dark situations. Often the reason is so that we can learn from the experience and increase our capacity for Compassion. We can then act as a lighthouse, showing others how to cope by our own personal example. Sometimes the only light they will see will be coming from you. Make a point today to reflect on how you have grown through adversity and how you can share your hard-won Light with others."
~ Humanity Healing Foundation

“It is better to be an individual of humility, tolerance and mutual understanding, than to fall prey to the false need that you have to justify or prove yourself to others. Be a master of your own personal beliefs, choices and actions that are born from the Love, Integrity, and the Truth within your heart.” ~ Michael Green
