Various quotes on the subject of Life
“Do not believe in something merely because you have heard it, read it or because it is passed down from religions or taught by teachers. Even if it is repeated by many or rumored as truth, always question. Search your inner being for the truth. When it resonates with you and does not conflict with
compassion, love, gratitude or peace, and if by following such wisdom you benefit the whole of creation, then it may be wise to accept it and demonstrate it in your life.” ~ Chris W Metz

on to any of them they quickly become faded at the yearning of possessing it. All things have their own way, all things have a path of

If you truly loved yourself, you could never hurt another. Those who experience the unity of life see their own Self in all beings, and all beings in their own Self, and look upon everything with an impartial eye.

How deeply did you Let Go? ~ Unknown

The hard things are the ones that shatter into a million pieces!” ~ C. JoyBell C.
