--quote from Richard Bach.
--MESSIAH'S Handbook, Reminders For The Advanced Soul.
--'Perspective - Use it or Lose it.
If you turned to this page, you're forgetting that what is going on around you is not reality. Think about that.
--Remember where you came from, where you're going, and why you created the mess you got yourself into in the first place. You're going to die a horrible death, remember. It's all good training, and you'll enjoy it more if you keep the facts in mind.
Take your dieing with some seriousness, however. Laughing on the way to your execution is not generally understood by less-advanced life-forms, and they'll call you crazy.'
--'Learning is finding out what you already know.
Doing is demonstrating that you know it.
Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you.
You are all learners, doers, teachers.
Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself.
Being true to anyone else or anything else is not only I'll possible, but the mark of a false messiah.
The simplest questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? What are you doing? Think about these once in a while, and watch your answers change.
I've often been told by learned friars,
That wishing and the crime are one.
And heaven punishes desires
As much as if the deed were done.
If wishing damns us, you and I
Are damned to all our heart's content;
Come, then, at least we may enjoy
Some pleasure for our punishment.
< Thomas Moore. >
--You may be feeling high, you may be feeling low, remember I am with you, ask whatever you need to know. You cannot embarrass me, I'll stand by your side. I'll listen to you talk it out by your will I'll abide. You have honoured me with the gift of presence and you have spun sweet webs in my soul. Is there aught at all you would not test, is there aught you do not meet at will. Where do you abide and rest. Where is the junction of the seas, where is the comb to lure the bees. Are you the woman who makes my dreams, the flow of life within me streams? I am, is, is all the truth to say, people, streets, the sky, the day.
--Love is here appreciated,
Sought sincerely, never hated.
So unselfishly we share
our ideal of perfect devotion ~
to all those who are not there
we give of realization's motion.
Attain this bliss in seeing how
All of life, is loving, now.
< Simon.T. >
