“…Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.”

“Unease, restlesness, boredom, anxiety, dissatisfaction, are the result of unfulfilled wanting.”

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.”  (..or evolution of your religion.. or simply of your general Being, no?)

“Life isn’t as serious as my mind makes it out to be.”

“Don’t take the ego too seriously. When you detect egoic behavior in yourself, smile.”

These are from Eckhart Tolle’s “Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose” –and yes, I know, I know.. there are all kinds of reactions to “that book,” but those ideas are the ones that stood out to me.. I wanted you to read them w/o bias : )

Mother Teresa

“Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.”

“People are often unreasonable, illogical & self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you; Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
…You see, in the final analysis it is between you & God;
It was never between you & them anyway.”

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

The Red Violin

Ever since high school, when one of the contestants for the “Miss DHS” title played the most amazing violin solo I’ve ever heard live, I have loved the violin.  Have yet still to take lessons and learn this magnificent instrument (I am holding myself to it), this movie does it justice.  I love it for the journey it undergoes  through different countries, and the story behind it – for the ladies, it has love.  For the guys… well, Samuel Jackson is in it!  I would recommend it 🙂
