Heart

“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your heart.  Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.” ~ Carl Jung

 

“Everyone thinks only of him- or herself, and that is why there is so much contention and discord in our world.  If we could just keep our hearts pure, everything would be fine.  Do not think that the divine exists high above us in heaven.  The divine is right here, within and around us.” ~ Morihei Ueshiba, Budo Secrets

 

“Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness.  It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, ‘No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough.’  It’s going to bed at night thinking, ‘Yes I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging.'” ~ Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

 

“Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to the illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning. They begin sensing that something is amiss, and start looking for answers. Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experiences show them a side of reality others are oblivious to, and so begins their journey of awakening.  Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of following the crowd and by choosing knowledge over the veils of ignorance.” ~ Henri Bergson

 

“Do things with your whole heart, with as much intensity as you are capable of. Anything done halfheartedly never brings joy to life. It only brings misery, anxiety, torture, and tension, because whenever you do anything halfheartedly you are dividing yourself into two parts, and that is one of the greatest calamities that has happened to human beings – they are all split.” ~ Osho, The Book of Understanding
