Hi, everybody.

I’m super busy today so how about I leave you with some impactful quotes today? OK!

And see that you keep a cheerful demeanor, and retain your independence of outside help and the peace which others can give. Your duty is to stand straight – not held straight.

Marcus Aurelius

As soon as you look at the world through an ideology you are finished. No reality fits an ideology. Life is beyond that.

Anthony de Mello

When you have reconciled internally, peace and love become possible. When you embody peace and love, you can change a difficult situation more easily.

Thich Nhat Hanh

I wish you well. Try not to beat the shit out of yourself.

No Real Post Today but Here’s a Great Quote

Hi, all.

Today’s been a long day. Not too much to say. Had a great morning/early afternoon golfing with some amazing people. Ended the day swallowing my own shit instead of appreciating what I’ve learned over the past month or so. So, in order to bring that back up to the front of my mind, and maybe yours, I figured I might as well share:

“Perfect love casts out fear. Where there is love there are no demands, no expectations, no dependency. I do not demand that you make me happy; my happiness does not lie in you. If you were to leave me, I will not feel sorry for myself; I enjoy your company immensely, but I do not cling.”
― Anthony de Mello, Awareness: A de Mello Spirituality Conference in His Own Words

Highly recommend reading this book if you haven’t already. And yeah, the quote is much harder to put into practice than it is to read. You’ll fail, but maybe one time you won’t. And that will be the time that matters.

I wish you well. Try not to beat the shit out of yourself.
