Joy Division - The Kill

Lee Hazlewood - Dark In My Heart

With love your inner voice will find a tongue. — Rumi

Let silence be the art you practice. — Rumi

I looked in temples, churches, & mosques. But I found the Divine within my heart. — Rumi

Don’t hide your Heart but reveal it, So that mine might be revealed, And I might accept what I am capable of. — Rumi

The most difficult times for many of us are the ones we give ourselves. — Pema Chodron

When we think that something is going to bring us pleasure, we don’t know what’s really going to happen. When we think something is going to give us misery, we don’t know. Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. — Pema Chödrön

Resisting what is happening is a major cause of suffering. — Pema Chodron

Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom” Rumi ~

Maybe we need some kinds of revelations to help us see things in a better way. I know I do everyday. Even when you think you have everything in order, that’s when sometimes you begin to lose sight on what is truly important. I think the time I feel I want to give up is the time I am faced with a revelation or a change that proves that life can go on.

In each of us, there’s a lot of softness, a lot of heart. Touching that soft spot has to be the starting place. This is what compassion is all about. — Pema Chodron

Souls are like athletes, that need opponents worthy of them, if they are to be tried and extended and pushed to the full use of their powers, and rewarded according to their capacity.” ― Thomas Merton

Spacemen 3 - I Want You Right Now

Depeche Mode- Blue Dress

Learning how to be kind to ourselves, learning how to respect ourselves, is important. The reason it’s important is that, fundamentally, when we look into our own hearts and begin to discover what is confused and what is brilliant, what is bitter and what is sweet, it isn’t just ourselves that we’re discovering. We’re discovering the universe. — Pema Chodron

Feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are. — Pema Chödrön

We have a choice. We can spend our whole life suffering because we can’t relax with how things really are, or we can relax and embrace the open-endedness of the human situation, which is fresh, unfixated, unbiased. — Pema Chodron

If we commit ourselves to staying right where we are, then our experience becomes very vivid. Things become very clear when there is nowhere to escape. — Pema Chödrön

You build inner strength through embracing the totality of your experience, both the delightful parts and the difficult parts. — Pema Chodron

Appreciate everything, including the ordinary. Especially the ordinary. — Pema Chödrön

Maybe the most important teaching is to lighten up and relax. — Pema Chodron

Welcome the present moment as if you had invited it. Why? Because it is all we ever have. — Pema Chodron

Healing comes from letting there be room for everything: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy. — Pema Chodron

We work on ourselves in order to help others, but also we help others in order to work on ourselves. — Pema Chodron

“The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.” ― Paulo Coelho

Prince live at Webster hall Acoustic set

Soulsavers - I Cant Stay

Nobody Can Save Me Now

A thoroughly good relationship with ourselves results in being still, which doesn’t mean we don’t run and jump and dance about. It means there’s no compulsiveness. We don’t overwork, overeat, oversmoke, overseduce. In short, we begin to stop causing harm. — Pema Chodron

I equate ego with trying to figure everything out instead of going with the flow. That closes your heart and your mind to the person or situation that’s right in front of you, and you miss so much. — Pema Chodron

Meditation isn’t about throwing ourselves away and becoming something better. It’s about befriending who we already are. — Pema Chodron

The best spiritual instruction is when you wake up in the morning and say, ‘I wonder what’s going to happen today.’ And then carry that kind of curiosity through your life. — Pema Chodron

Let your curiosity be greater than your fear. — Pema Chodron

As our kindness for ourselves grows, so does our kindness for other people. — Pema Chödrön

The truth you believe and cling to makes you unavailable to hear anything new. — Pema Chödrön

It’s up to us. We can spend our lives cultivating our resentments and cravings or we can explore the path of the warrior—nurturing open-mindedness and courage. Most of us keep strengthening our negative habits and therefore sow the seeds of our own suffering. — Pema Chodron

Openness doesn’t come from resisting our fears but from getting to know them well. — Pema Chödrön

Constantly apply cheerfulness, if for no other reason than because you are on this spiritual path. Have a sense of gratitude to everything, even difficult emotions, because of their potential to wake you up. — Pema Chodron

Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth. — Pema Chödön

As our own peace of mind grows, so the atmosphere around us becomes more peaceful.

Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.

Algiers - "Blood"

Depeche Mode- Waiting for the Night

Air - Do The Joy

The days and nights are all a wonder and a wild delight, and though I have little time from my work, I steal odd moments to gaze at the unending glory of what I never dreamed the world possessed. — Jack London, from The Sea Wolf

You have eternal life before you. You are a millionaire in immortality, and a millionaire whose fortune cannot be lost, whose fortune is less perishable than the stars and as lasting as space or time. It is impossible for you to diminish your principal. Immortality is a thing without beginning or end. Eternity is eternity, and though you die here and now you will go on living somewhere else and hereafter. And it is all very beautiful, this shaking off of the flesh and soaring of the imprisoned spirit. — Jack London, from The Sea Wolf

I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. — Jack London

Here was adventure, something to do with head and hand, a world to conquer- and straightway from the back of his consciousness rushed the thought, conquering, to win to her, that pale spirit sitting beside him.

I’d rather sing one wild song and burst my heart with it, than live a thousand years watching my digestion and being afraid of the wet. — Jack London

Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well. — Jack London

I do not live for what the world thinks of me, but for what I think of myself. — Jack London

You are, at this moment, standing right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds. — Earl Nightingale

Hold the vision and trust the process. — Abraham Hicks

Sometimes you’ve got to be able to listen to yourself and be okay with no one else understanding. — Christopher Barzak

~Things that matter the most must never be at the mercy of things that matter the least.~ Goethe

Talent develops in tranquillity, character in the full current of human life. — Goethe
