“Project Love and Positivity and you will attract Love and Positivity. It’s that simple!”

— Quote by @faronmckenzie

Desire commands us to run off and get what we want. Aversion insists that we must avoid the things we don’t like. Typically, when we don’t get what we want, we are disappointed, and when we get what we don’t want, we are distressed.

Epictetus

Meditation is nothing but creating a situation where the mind has less and less things to do.

If you are a coward, what is wrong with it? You are a coward—it is perfectly good. Cowards are also needed, otherwise from where will you get heroes?

A candle as it diminishes, explains, gathering more and more is not the way. Burn, become light and heat. Melt.

A Buddha is a Buddha, and you are you. And you are not in any way less than anybody else. Respect yourself, respect your own inner voice and follow it.

If you really love a person, you give them infinite space. Your very being is just a space for them to grow in, to grow with. The mind interferes and tries to possess the person, then love is destroyed.

Memory exists only after the ego has come into existence, because memory needs a center on which to hang. If you are not, where will the memory hang?

In the ultimate sense, all desires are the same, because desire means you are not contented with yourself as you are. Desire is a discontent. Desire means a hope in the future—that somewhere there must be a place where everything will fall in tune with you.

Project Love and Positivity and you will attract Love and Positivity. It’s that simple!
