It is not your role to make others happy; it is your role to keep yourself in balance. When you pay attention to how you feel and practice self-empowering thoughts that align with who-you-really-are, you will offer an example of thriving that will be of tremendous value to those who have the benefit of observing you. You cannot get poor enough to help poor people thrive or sick enough to help sick people get well. You only ever uplift from your position of strength and clarity and alignment. ~ Abraham-Hicks
The world is painted on your screen of consciousness and is entirely your private world…Once you realize that the world is your own projection, you are free of it. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
Whatsoever that be within us that feels, thinks, desires, and animates, is something celestial, divine, and, consequently, imperishable. ~ Aristotle
If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment. ~ Marcus Aurelius
Stop telling it like it is and start telling it like you WANT it to be! ~ Abraham-Hicks
Do not look Back in anger, or Forward in fear, but Around in Awareness.
