Expectation (demand) is always a cause of suffering.
Rather than "expecting" to be repaid
when we "loan" something to someone,
consider the "loans" we make to be forward payments
for the "loans" we received from
our ancestors, nurturers and others.
Request that any "loan" that we make be repaid FORWARD,
when the recipient is able,
and then completely forget about the "loan."
It is no longer our business if, when, or how
the "loan" is repaid - or is not repaid.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We need silence to be able to touch souls.
- Mother Teresa

Count your blessings. Once you realize

I am the owner of my choices.
I am the source for the perspectives I choose to hold...
regardless of how aware I am of why or how I come to possess
that particular perspective.
It takes courage to look into the mirror of our souls, absent excuses.

a heightened sense of community.

There are no small acts of kindness.
Every compassionate act makes large the world.

remember what the flight attendant says,

those around you to emulate your being.

you must be a person whose forgiveness matters.

you have to believe that your future matters.

And, before you can feel unity with,
and Honor toward, Spirit and all creation,
you must Honor yourself to feel worthy of that unity.

is a greater gift than a steak dinner served brusquely.
