Past Thoughts of the Day from Interlude: An Internet Retreat

12/1/17 to the present



Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.

John Adams

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

Mahatma Gandhi

When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world. Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form.

Eckhart Tolle in Stillness Speaks

From the time we are born, there is a wildish urge within us that desires our souls lead our lives, for the ego can only understand just so much.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

Henry Ford

It is because of our attachment to things that we suffer. By letting go we find that we have not lost anything except our attachment.

Sogyal Rinpoche

Gratitude for the present moment and the fullness of life now is true prosperity.

Eckhart Tolle

He is a man of sense who does not grieve for what he has not, but rejoices in what he has.

Epictetus

I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.

Rabindranath Tagore

Every time and every place is uniquely different. There is no need to compare it with any other time and place. Just carefully taste the present - that is enough!
