The more conscious you are about your choices, the more likely it is you will end up where you want to be at the end of your stay on this planet. Dennis Merritt Jones The Art of Uncertainty: How to Live in the Mystery of Life and Love It
“I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.” — John Lennon
“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful: they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.” — Luther Burbank
“Stop and smell the roses” is a cliché that we hear a lot. If you remember this saying when you look at what is flowering in your part of the world, perhaps you will also remember Mr. Burbank’s words and recognize in yourself that you really do feel better and happier in that moment.
“The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.” — Carlos Castaneda
“I must govern the clock, not be governed by it.” — Golda Meir

Are you missing today’s beautiful sunset because you can’t wait until tomorrow’s sunrise?
“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” − Lao Tzu
Many of us start and finish each day by doing habitual things. We have routines that we follow to begin our days and habits that we do at bedtime. It is easy to do both. So easy that we forget to think about how important it is to be fully aware of our thoughts as we begin and end each day.
“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” − Ralph Waldo Emerson
