Happiness is strange; it comes when you are not seeking it. When you are not making an effort to be happy, then unexpectedly, mysteriously, happiness is there, born of purity, of a loveliness of being. — Jiddu Krishnamurti
My prayer today is to become more mindful of my personal actions. What motivates me to do what I do and to say the things I do to others? I often dismiss my actions because of stress or anger but the people I hurt along the way do not dismiss what I’ve said or done. Every action and every word carries a consequence. Every person has stress and every person has anger. I would not like to be someone’s target and I ask for the grace to become more mindful not to harm others just because I am having a bad day. — Caroline Myss
Today, let me appreciate all that I have in my life and the people who are there for me every day. As I take this in, I attract even greater abundance. Help me to remember that the best is yet to come. — Unknown Author
Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives. — Louise Hay
The ultimate falsehood, to the great lie of the false life — is truth. Anything which points to the real and ultimate freedom is labeled profane and illicit. And so, bondage shall be called freedom, and falsehood called truth, and evil called good — and this inverted reality keeps the secret to your liberation hidden in plain sight; in moral certainty, where none will dare look. This is why it is important to question things and ask “why?”, but most importantly, question yourself. Challenge yourself. Be defiant; defy yourself. Challenge authority; the authority of your own rational convictions!
— Bryant McGill
Pure love has no conditions or boundaries. Love does not restrain itself or hold back. Love gives and it doesn’t ask for anything in return. Love is a continuous flow without any limits. And all of this is inside you. — Rhonda Byrne
People often say they just want peace and happiness. You hear it from people all the time, “I just want to be happy.” But really, some of these people don’t want to be happy; it’s a flat-out lie or a self-delusion. If they wanted happiness, they would have it. The truth is, we have what we want already. I know you will be tempted to blame everything outside of yourself for your woes, but it just isn’t true. Sure, it’s true that there is ugliness “out there,” but happiness is absolutely something available inside of you — and it’s available right now. If you are waiting for things in your life to align themselves so you can be happy, then you are likely in for some serious disappointment. Looking to the external for happiness is like a drug addiction; you are always looking for an external fix to sooth your withdrawals of depression when things aren’t going well. It is a form of self-medicating something deeper and unresolved. Look, if you aren’t happy, it’s because you simply don’t want to be. The mentally-ill and small children aside, you are responsible for your own happiness. Don’t act pitiful and helpless. You do have choices even when your limiting beliefs insist that you don’t. The most insubordinate obstacle you will encounter is your own limited thinking. How long are you going to keep waiting for happiness to come your way? I guess you’re waiting for happiness to knock your door down and drag you out of your x-year-long streak of “bad luck.” You may live in a harsh world at times, but you can have a beautiful inner-life, and a beautiful outer-life always begins with a beautiful inner-life.
— Bryant McGill
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart — Helen Keller
Surround yourself with beautiful things. Life has a lot of grey and sadness – look for that rainbow and frame it. There is beauty in everything, sometimes you just have to look a little harder to see it. — Charlotte Kitley
Anyone can be kind to someone they like. The real test is can you be kind to people you don’t like. — Bryant McGill
Find good mentors, advisors and role models for yourself and listen and learn from them. You will be amazed how your life can change with good advice on your side. — Bryant McG
n taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior. — Francis Bacon
When you speak and affirm, you are creating a verbal contract with yourself. — Bryant McGill
Linking the future to the pain of the past does not allow the light to come in. Today always offers new light; however, when you hold on to what you believe about yesterday, that belief will not allow you to explore new possibilities. What happened yesterday does not have to happen today unless you believe it must. — Iyanla Vanzant
There is a power in silence that energizes the mind. Silence is an art, a tool of the wise. When we perfect the art of silence, chances are that we will get a lot more done. — Iyanla Vanzant
No matter what you do — stand up for who you are and be honest about your feelings. Even if it seems like you will be crucified for it; even if you think you will not be as successful or as liked — in the end, it’s only your honesty that will have mattered. — Bryant McGill
The inner light actually comes from the soul; it is already inside us. The moment we can have free access to our soul, we will see that this light is coming to the fore to permeate our whole outer existence. — Sri Chinmoy
Talk back to yourself when fear, doubt and negative thoughts try and stop you from believing in your power to achieve your dream. It can be difficult being positive when things aren’t going well, but you have the power to do it. Saturate your mind with affirmations, music, or anything that will inspire you and lift your spirit. Practice filling your mind with positive thoughts – thoughts of gratitude and visions of how your life will be different. Take charge of your life. You have something special. You have GREATNESS within you!! — Les Brown
It’s not wrong to be upset. It’s not wrong to cry. It’s not wrong to want attention. It’s not even wrong to scream or throw a fit. What is wrong is to keep it all inside. What is wrong is to blame and punish yourself for simply being human. What is wrong is to never be heard and to be alone in your pain. Share it. Let it out. Tears are good. What flows is alive. Crying is like a thundershower for the soul. The air feels so wonderful after the rain. Don’t think too much. Breathe. Don’t be harsh or demanding on yourself. Just experience your feelings and know that your tears are announcing change in your life. Change is coming; like a summer rain — to wash away your pain. Have faith that things are getting better.
— Bryant McGill
When a big change occurs in your life it forces you to change direction. Sometimes the new path may not be easy, but you can be absolutely certain that there is magnificence for you on the new path. You can be absolutely certain that the new path contains things that you could not have experienced otherwise. When we look back at a negative event that occurred in the past, we often see how in fact it transformed our life. We see how that event directed us toward a life that we would not change for anything. — Rhonda Byrne
Every person’s true identity is beautiful, and much of the ugliness we observe in others was put inside of them by external influences. We all know the true beauty of people everywhere, because we have all looked into the eyes of children and saw ourselves looking back. When someone is suffering, there is a deep, visceral reaction in the core of our being, a flood of empathy and a frightfully desperate compulsion to give aid. When we see a person in physical crisis laying with a broken body and their blood pouring out, our deepest, most urgent instinct is to rush to them, and put our hands upon their wounds and comfort them. When someone is emotionally upset and crying, nothing is right in our own world. Our truest nature is to be helpful to others and to protect and love them. We care about people, and delight in seeing others happy and safe. We see this on a large scale in the aftermath of a catastrophe; the world population is deeply touched by the images of suffering, and many rush to help either financially or in person, when there is a tragedy. This is who we really are. When we see someone laughing, our spirits rise, and the laughter comes pouring into our own souls, and we find ourselves helplessly smiling. When we witness someone commit an act of kindness or selflessness, our emotions are stirred and we are touched by the high, noble spirit of what we know is the greatest truth — that we care about others, and delight in seeing others happy and safe.

To be loved is to be fortunate, but to be hated is to achieve distinction. -Minna Antrim
you can’t be brave without being afraid. The brave ones are always afraid. But they do what they must, even so. — Teri Hall
Focus on what you’re grateful for in your life. If you don’t appreciate what you have, you won’t get any more . . . because the universe thinks it’s not important to you, and therefore you don’t need any more. — T. Harv Eker
Everyone has talent. What’s rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads. — Erica Jong
So many people cover-up things within themselves. They smile when they really need to frown. They “laugh” nervously when they are uneasy and uncomfortable. They try to make it “all right” so everything can be “perfect” and “fine.” We do this to be accepted. We do this because people guilt us into acting perfect. We fake perfect, so others don’t have to experience any unpleasant realities, because their life is just as fake as ours. If some people came into contact with anything real they would be shocked out of their minds. This phony life builds-up inside of you until one day you erupt like a volcano, and you don’t know why. But, some people don’t explode, they implode. They fake perfect until they disappear forever and become someone else’s version of who they “should” be. Either way it’s a total loss of life. You are lost because you have not been honest with yourself, and your life is largely unexamined and unexerted. You have to do some thinking and know who you are, and then you have to resist compromising your truth for the comfort of others. Don’t intentionally be rude, but be you. Some people will see you as an asshole because they don’t understand honesty, integrity and honoring oneself. Witnessing honesty frightens some people because they haven’t known authenticity in their own life. But really, your abrasion is the rub they may need to open themselves or at least cause them to think. In a world of sleepwalkers, an awakened mind is a teacher and a catalyst for new awakenings, whether they want to be or not. A moment of truth is very powerful. Instead of smiling to be polite, just frown. Instead of laughing when you are nervous or uncomfortable, just speak your truth. Instead of acting like everything is alright, proclaim it isn’t alright, and talk about your feelings! Honor your truth. Honor yourself. Be real. If you can honor yourself and be real about your discomfort and pain, then your happiness will be just as real. If you can’t be real and firm with others about who you really are, you will be doomed to a phony, plastic bullshit existence, where you only live for others. When you are real you can move through what ails you, instead of being stuck there forever in some sort of “Pleasantville” hell.

One smile has the power to… Calm fears. Soften stone walls. Warm a cold heart. Invite a new friend. Mimic a loving hug. Beautify the bearer. Lighten heavy loads. Promote good deeds. Brighten a gloomy day. Comfort a grieving spirit. Offer hope to the forlorn. Send a message of caring. Lift the downtrodden soul. Patch up invisible wounds. Weaken the hold of misery. Act as medicine for suffering. Attract the companionship of angels. Fulfill the human need for recognition. Who knew changing the world would prove so simple? — Richelle E. Goodrich
The tiniest gesture — a smile, a gentle look, a simple pat on the arm, a soft word — can change a person’s life. Before this very day is out, you are going to have a chance to live in that possibility. Look. Watch. See what this day brings you. And be ready. Someone is waiting for that smile, that look, that gesture from you right now. — Neale Donald Walsch
This is your moment; this ephemeral instant is your unfolding life. Make your life a tribute equal to the magnitude of the gift of life. Rush out into holy life and shine. Witness each moment in astounded jubilation. Take every holy breath in gratitude. Rejoice in life!
— Bryant McGill
There is a way of having your needs met without negativity and complaining. If you want something — give it. Being positive, giving and caring may not always work out exactly the way you wish, but whatever you give will come back to you one way or another. Your giving heart may inspire change in another, or qualify you for a better situation if the current situation must eventually change. And, even if it fails with the person in whom you wish to see a behaviour change — even if they are totally non-responsive, dysfunctional and a taker — you still can’t lose, because you can never lose by being awesome and by being your very best.
— Bryant McGill
Each of us is attracting in every moment of our lives. So when you feel that the law isn’t working for you because you don’t have what you want, realize that the law is responding to you. You are either attracting what you want or you are attracting the absence of what you want. — Rhonda Byrne
Everyone has their own path. Walk yours with integrity and wish all others peace on their journey. When your paths merge, rejoice for their presence in your life. When the paths are separated, return to the wholeness of yourself, give thanks for the footprints left on your soul, and embrace the time to journey on your own. — Unknown Author
The purpose of dancing isn’t to end up at a particular spot on the floor. The purpose of dancing and of life is to enjoy every moment and every step, regardless of where you are when the music ends.

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins. — Bob Moawad
Start telling the truth now and never stop. Begin by telling the truth to yourself about yourself. Then tell the truth to yourself about someone else. Then tell the truth about yourself to another. Then tell the truth about another to that other. Finally, tell the truth to everyone about everything. These are the 5 levels of truth telling. This is the five-fold path to freedom.

If you are feeling really good, negative thoughts and words are not on the same frequency as you, so you don’t even have to try to stop them because all good things just pour out of you. So, the fastest way to be more positive is to watch how you are feeling, rather than trying to monitor your thoughts and words. You are the only one who has control of your feelings, so start to get in touch with how you are feeling, and then deliberately focus on intensifying a good feeling within you. — Rhonda Byrne+
Be less of a judge and you will be surprised that when you become a witness and you don’t judge yourself, you stop judging others too. And that makes you more human, more compassionate, more understanding.
Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. — Denis Waitley
Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth… This is the real message of love.
― Thich Nhat Hanh
How you treat others is really about who you choose to be in this life. — Bryant McGill
“Don’t waste your time, money, energy and love on someone who is unappreciative and brings heartache into your life. Everyone may deserve love, but not everyone deserves your love.”
— Bryant McGil
The worst lies are the ones we tell ourselves. The worst verbal abuse comes from our own tongue. The most negative influence is the devil on our own shoulder. The cruelest judge is the one staring back in the mirror. The person really withholding the love you need is you. No one will ever out-do you at playing mind-games. You must stop doing this to yourself! The universe is calling you to heal, not to agonize over your mistakes. Quit overthinking; this is what surrendering really means. Don’t focus on negativity and don’t even obsess about “fixing” things or yourself. Don’t force “positive thinking.” These things can be psychological irritants. Just leave yourself alone! When you pick at things they never heal. Just relax and give yourself some time.
Hello, sun in my face. Hello you who made the morning and spread it over the fields…Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness. — Mary Oliver
