From Mary Burmeister:
We need never know FATIGUE. Energy can never TIRE. It is our PERSONAL
imbalance that causes fatigue. When our 26 “safety” Energy
Locks are unlocked, we are in a state of ECSTASY-the SECRET of the fountain
of youth, available equally to all eternally-that which was, is and shall
be, IS. The MASTER KEY is our degree of desire and trust, the KNOWING.
The SIMPLE reason for perfect health and happiness is being master of
anything we do-LOVE IT regardless of what it is-menial, boring or inspirational
work. There should be no person or thing one dislikes-as hatred develops
imbalance, which causes Fatigue. HAPPINESS is an indication of our HARMONY.
We are all created equally. We have our TWO HANDS as our REJUVENATORS
and HARMONIZERS. With these two hands we have the privilege of helping
ourselves and others to get in tune with the universe. Hands are generators
of the Creator Power-not from within us, but a part of the ever constant
and forever balanced universal SUPPLY. We need only be AWARE of this supply.
(Text I, 1979 edition)
At the heart of each of us exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm.
My mind is open, wherever I am, I am simply beginning. Thank you, God.
It is as it is, and as it is, it is. To DO, Just BE.
No comparisons, not even with myself.
God be my teacher, God be my Do-er, thank you God, thank you for this
Other quotes from other folks:
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart-try to love the
questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written
in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be
given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is,
to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually,
without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer. (Rilke)
There’s a common misunderstanding among all human beings who have
ever been born on earth that the best way to live is to try and avoid
pain and just try to get comfortable…A much more interesting, kind,
adventurous, and joyful approach to life is to develop our curiosity,
not caring whether the object of our inquisitiveness is bitter or sweet.
Since all things are naked, clear from obscurations, there is nothing
to attain or realize. The everyday practice is simply to develop a complete
acceptance and openness to all situations and emotions and to all people,
experiencing everything totally without reservations or blockages, so
that one never withdraws or centralizes into oneself. (Trungpa Rinpoche)
Place the fearful mind in the cradle of loving kindness. (Pema Chödron)
All healing is essentially the release from fear.
For those who have hurt me, knowingly or unknowingly in thought, word,
or deed, I freely forgive.
And for those whom I have hurt, knowingly or unknowingly in thought, word,
or deed, I ask forgiveness.
May I be happy, may I be peaceful, may I be free.
May my friends be happy, may my friends be peaceful, may my friends be
May my enemies be happy, may my enemies be peaceful, may my enemies be
May all beings be happy, may all beings be peaceful, may all beings be
free. (Buddhist prayer)
