Lightbulb Taking risks..

"To try is to risk failure. But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard of life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, live, and love."
-- Leo Buscaglia

Daring to risk is an essential step to self empowerment. This is the key to breaking out of stuck thinking and behaviour. It is about breaking through the comfort zones and barriers. It is about experiencing new levels of mind and feelings. It is about experiencing more life.

"A life spent in making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing."
-- George Bernard Shaw

"Only those who risk going too far can know how far they can go."
-- Unknown source

"All these quotes do is give me an insight in to the mind of a person who used such high strung words. Question to ask is if these great souls practiced what they preached? I doubt it very much ... I doubt it very very much!

I am not here looking for short cuts. I want to learn and learn I will. Only quotes that matter are of my own making ... good or bad ... my own personal experiences in life is all that matter to me. God has given me all that it takes ... now it is up to me to do what I want with it.

I will be unfair to God ... I will be unfair to myself ... if I deprived myself and tried to live life based on ideals of others ... however great or small. Gandhi lived his life ... I will live my own. I do not wish to deprive myself of THE JOYS of learning by following Gandhi's life.

People say but Gandhi was a great man ... that does not make Tantric Yogi's quotes any less greater.

.... Tantric Yogi"




Landyabhai ... every single post of yours and everyone else is full of quotes which I read and respect because those are the thoughts and experiences of real people living my kind of life (hopefully ) ... that matters ... your quotes matter. What some arsole said hundred years ago mean shit ...

IMHO it refers to so-called secularist kaangressis

Smile Activity & Achievement

1) Activity is not achievement. It is not enough to rush about beginning a lot of things and keeping busy. A well-spent life is one that rounds out what it has begun.



2) Intention and the words we speak are powerful. When we say we are going to do something, we set energy in motion. When we fail to act or complete our intention, we drain our energy. We lose our power.



3) We would be wise to choose our words carefully -- to really mean what we say and to honour the commitments we have made.



4) A Genius begins great works. Labour alone finishes them.



5) It is Good to begin well but better to end well.

Re: Food for Thought

A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.

Albert Einstein

Thumbs up The Journey of Life

1) Life is complex. Each one of us must make his own path through life. There are no self-help manuals, no formulas, no easy answers. The right road for one is the wrong road for another ... The journey of life is not paved in blacktop; it is not brightly lit, and it has no road signs. It is a rocky path through the wilderness."

2) We each have our own pathways to develop both personally and spiritually. They are based on our character and past experiences. No one else can identify our paths for us. Tune in to your inner guidance system and follow its direction.

3) What every man needs, regardless of his job or the kind of work he is doing, is a vision of what his place is and may be. He needs an objective and a purpose. He needs a feeling and a belief that he has some worthwhile thing to do. What this is no one can tell him. It must be his own creation."

Re: Food for Thought

If you aim Low... theres less chance of you to get dissapointed..!

No but seriously..

"There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." -- Albert Einstein

"Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards." -- Unknown

"The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why." -- Albert Einstein

"The difference between a smart person and a wise person is that a smart person knows what to say and a wise person knows whether or not to say it." -- Quote found on the wall of a recreation center office in Berkeley, California.

Re: Food for Thought

Learning to o better


I walk down the street.
There is a hole.
I don't see it.
I fall in.
It isn't my fault.
It takes a very long time to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is still a deep hole.
I pretend not to see it.
I fall in.
I pretend it's still not my fault.
It takes a long time to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is still the same deep hole.
I see it.
I fall in anyway.
It's a habit.
I get out quicker this time.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole.
I see it.
I walk around it.
I don't fall in.

I walk down a different street.

-- Portia Nelson
