This week I heard several folks speak words that truly made a difference in my thinking. They spoke out loudly to me.
I thought I would share them with you.
I watched an interview with Wayne Dyer about his work on the movie THE SHIFT and he said:
“EGO = Edging God Out” (He had a huge definition of God)
….then he went on to discuss how folks want to acquire and control (run by ego) for part of their lives and the shift is where meaning and the recognition of the spirit within shifts to becoming more important – made me think.
I listened to the Rachel Maddow program one evening when I needed to be in the spine neutral position for a long period of time. Maddow was interviewing Cory Booker the Mayor of Newark, New Jersey http://twitter.com/CoryBooker and he said:
“If you are a person who drinks deeply from a well you did not dig – you get what you deserve.”
“Schools, governments, communities do not work if you are not involved or participating – creating and digging the wells.”
Mr. Booker was addressing a question about all the corrupt politicians and business folks who created the problems that Newark had been manifesting – and they did not do the work or dig in and get the job done….so the city was left in an illiterate state of demise.
I also received recently the new address of my friend Liv. For the past 5 + years she has been working on her co- housing dream. Finding the team, designing the buildings, plotting the community garden, finding property, filing permits and working with the architects, engineers, planners, and developers to make co-housing a reality in our city and she now had a move-in date.
Woodard Lane Co-Housing: Liv is upstairs in the brown and green unit and is found on the home page – red hair!
At the bottom of her announcement she included the following quote. It too made me think and mull and I wanted to share it with you.
May you know the complete safety of an undefended heart.
May you know that joy is possible in this very moment.
May your whole life be one sigh of gratitude.
I just so enjoy when words tickle my prefrontal cortex and get the thinking machine in high gear. How about you?
Did you hear something interesting in your past weeks that just caught you up in your thinking mode and gave you a good workout? Do you have a great quote that you just carry with you for the right moment? Are you willing to share that idea or quote in the comments section?
Looking forward to your comments and interesting ideas – thank you.
A bit like a mind vacation from the realm of habitual thinking?
