Gratitude, generosity and humility are inherent characteristics of one who is present. When you awaken, you will realize that everyone and everything has the same right to be here as you do. This includes every human Being, every tree Being, every flower Being, and every other kind of Being.
Leonard Jacobson

Fundamentally ecstasy means to transcend yourself, to go outside and beyond what you think, know, and believe is possible. An ecstatic state is a glimpse into the infinite.
Margot Anand

Heaven. Now there's a thought. Nothing has ever been able, ultimately, to convince me we live anywhere else. And that heaven, more a verb than a noun, more a condition than a place, is all about leading with the heart in whatever broken or ragged state it's in, stumbling forward in faith until, from time to time, we miraculously find our way. Our way to forgiveness, our way to letting go, our way to understanding, compassion and peace. It is laughter, I think, that bubbles up at last and says, Ho, I think we are there. And that "there" is always here.
Alice Walker

The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.
Paul Valery

God brings men into deep waters not to drown them, but to cleanse them.
James H. Aughey

Rise up nimbly and go on your strange journey!
Rumi

How could there be any question of acquiring or possessing, when the one thing needful for a man is to become – to be at last, and to die in the fullness of his being.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Peace, peace! He is not dead, he doth not sleep – he hath awakened from the dream of life.
Percy Bysshe Shelley

If every day is an awakening, you will never grow old. You will just keep growing.
Gail Sheehy

Love yourself and be awake today, tomorrow, always. First establish yourself in the way, then teach others, and so defeat sorrow. To straighten the crooked you must first do the harder thing--straighten yourself. You are the only master. Who else? Subdue yourself and discover your master.
Buddha

In spiritual life there is no room for compromise. Awakening is not negotiable; we cannot bargain to hold on to things that please us while relinquishing things that do not matter to us. A lukewarm yearning for awakening is not enough to sustain us through the difficulties involved in letting go. It is important to understand that anything that can be lost was never truly ours, anything that we deeply cling to only imprisons us.
Jack Kornfield

It's exhilarating to be alive in a time of awakening consciousness; it can also be confusing, disorienting, and painful.
Adrienne Rich

Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.
Carl Jung
