We can’t stop fear or judgment. Ego’s thoughts arrive before we have time to think about them. But we can consciously choose how to respond. Stepping into the present is a gift we can give ourselves anytime, anywhere, any moment. Presence, our inner compass, navigates our choices toward inner peace and freedom.
“When we are happy we are always good, but when we are good we are not always happy.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
Success is most often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.
“It is difficult to bring people to goodness with lessons, but it is easy to do so by example.”
In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result.
“The disturbers of happiness are our desires, our griefs, and our fears.”
And we will continue together until the road vanishes.
