Some quotes of people we admire, expressing what we aim for


Concentration is taught by the mystics in order to exercise the will, ...

A person with will power can remember what he wishes to remember and can forget what he wishes to forget.


All things that deprive one

of one's freedom in life

are undesirable.

The mind must be free

from all bad impressions of life,

which take away

the rest and peace of life.


By concentration,

one is able to hold

a certain thought one desires


to keep away all other thoughts.

When one is able to keep away

all the thoughts one does not wish

to think about,

it becomes easy to throw away

the impressions of years,

if one wishes to forget them.

Bad impressions,

however old and intimate,

are like rubbish accumulated,

which should be removed

in order to make the house clean.

Hazrat Inayat Khan




is perhaps the most highly valued concept within the Daoist teaching,

with Mother Earth as the model.

This naturalness refers not to some external ease or lack of effort,

but to perfect inner attunement

to the Deep Inner Essence of our selves

and consequently the Deep Inner Essence

of the wider world  


 Balance is also highly valued,

as an aspect of naturalness.

The concept of Yin and Yang

and the harmonising immaterial Qi

depicts balance.  

The more self aware we are

the further we see into our own subconscious and consequently the more we recognize

that what we really are

is very different

from how we present ourselves

to the outer world.

This increasing self knowledge

also allows us

to see correspondingly past the face of others and further into who they really are.  

Patrick A. Kelly

Positive Psychology


"Choice is creation.

To choose is to create.

Through my choices I create my reality.

At every moment in my life I have a choice. Moments add up to a lifetime;

choices add up to a life.

What kind of life do I want for myself?

What choices will create this kind of life?" 

"Happiness is

the meaning and the purpose of life,

the whole aim and end

of human existence." 

“Our behavior toward others

is often a reflection

of our treatment of ourselves.”  

"Don’t ask yourself what the world needs,

ask yourself what makes you come alive.

And then go and do that.

Because what the world needs

is people who have come alive." 

Tal Ben Shahar
