When you help, you see life as weak. When you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul. --Rachel Naomi Remen (in Teenage Hero of Dhaka's Slums)

When you take a stand on something and work from there, you take different actions than you do when you believe that that something is inevitable and your effort is to try to make it "not so bad." When you know the certainty that things can be not just different but entirely resolved, you engage in the work in a more fundamental way. You don't wonder "if." You determine "how to." You look for root causes. You make different choices. --Lynne Twist from "The Soul of Money" (in Resolve)

In the end, it is the reality of personal relationship that saves everything. --Thomas Merton (in Hopelessness)

To know that you are the timeless reality is all I care to see, and this is our only meeting place. Our journey is to awaken the greatest capacity, to ignite an understanding that combines life's highest ideals with pure practicality. My work is to support and fortify a deepening of spirit, to enhance a sense of trust in one's own authority, love, acceptance, and ultimately enlightenement. This work is ever changing, you are the one that defines it. It is you that call yourself and answer yourself in me. You may wonder why you don't answer yourself directly; the answer is the same: you do. We are one. --Shantimayi (in Untitled)

The sculptor, Michelangelo, was once asked how it was that he could create such beautiful works. "It's very simple," he answered. "When I look at a block of marble, I see the sculpture inside it. All I have to do is remove what doesn't belong." The master says: "There is a work of art each of us was destined to create. That is the central point of our life, and -- no matter how we try to deceive ourselves -- we know how important it is to our happiness. Usually, that work of art is covered by years of fears, guilt and indecision. But, if we decide to remove those things that do not belong, if we have no doubt as to our capability, we are capable of going forward with the mission that is our destiny. That is the only way to live with honor." --Paulo Coelho (in Untitled)

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them - work, family, health, friends, and spirit - and you're keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls - family, health, friends, and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life. --Brian Dyson, CEO of Coca Cola (1994) (in Juggling Five Balls)
