When you surrender to what is and so become fully present,
the past ceases to have any power.
The realm of Being, which had been obscured by the mind, then opens up.
Suddenly, a great stillness arises within you, an unfathomable sense of peace.
And within that peace, there is great joy.
And within that joy, there is love.
And at the innermost core, there is the sacred, the immeasurable,
That which cannot be named.
// Eckhart Tolle
Anything that you resent and
strongly react to in another
is also in you.
A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose // Eckhart Tolle
Write down what not to pursue in your life.
In other words, make calculated decisions to disregard certain possibilities and when an option shows up, test it against your not-to-pursue list.
It will not only keep you from trouble but also save you lots of thinking time.
Think hard once and then just consult your list instead of having to make up your mind whenever a new door cracks open.
Most doors are not worth entering,
even when the handle seems to turn so effortlessly.
The Art of Thinking Clearly // Rolf Dobelli
Surely every one realizes, at some point along the way, that he is capable of living a far better life than the one he has chosen.
Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch // Henry Miller
Practice “zero-based thinking” in every part of your life. Ask yourself continually, “If I were not doing this already, knowing what I now know, would I start doing it again today?” If it is something you would not start again today, knowing what you now know, it is a prime candidate for abandonment or creative procrastination.
