It’s important that what thoughts you are feeding into your mind because your thoughts create your belief and experiences. You have positive thoughts and you have negative ones too. Nurture your mind with positive thoughts: kindness, empathy, compassion, peace, love, joy, humility, generosity, etc. The more you feed your mind with positive thoughts, the more you can attract great things into your life. .Roy T. Bennett
I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.C. Joybell C.
Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you've changed, by believing. Once you've changed, other things start to follow. Isn't that the way it works?Diane Duane
Beliefs are choices. First you choose your beliefs. Then your beliefs affect your choices.Roy T. Bennett
In case you never get a second chance: don't be afraid! " "And what if you do get a second chance?" "You take it!C. Joybell C.
For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible.Stuart Chase
Once upon a time there was a young prince who believed in all things but three. He did not believe in princesses, he did not believe in islands, he did not believe in God. His father, the king, told him that such things did not exist. As there were no princesses or islands in his father's domains, and no sign of God, the young prince believed his father. But then, one day, the prince ran away from his palace. He came to the next land. There, to his astonishment, from every coast he saw islands, and on these islands, strange and troubling creatures whom he dared not name. As he was searching for a boat, a man in full evening dress approached him along the shore. Are those real islands?' asked the young prince. Of course they are real islands, ' said the man in evening dress. And those strange and troubling creatures?' They are all genuine and authentic princesses.' Then God must exist! ' cried the prince. I am God, ' replied the man in full evening dress, with a bow. The young prince returned home as quickly as he could. So you are back, ' said the father, the king. I have seen islands, I have seen princesses, I have seen God, ' said the prince reproachfully. The king was unmoved. Neither real islands, nor real princesses, I have seen God, ' said the prince reproachfully. The king was unmoved. Neither real islands, nor real princesses, nor a real God exist.' I saw them! ' Tell me how God was dressed.' God was in full evening dress.' Were the sleeves of his coat rolled back?' The prince remembered that they had been. The king smiled. That is the uniform of a magician. You have been deceived.' At this, the prince returned to the next land, and went to the same shore, where once again he came upon the man in full evening dress. My father the king has told me who you are, ' said the young prince indignantly. 'You deceived me last time, but not again. Now I know that those are not real islands and real princesses, because you are a magician.' The man on the shore smiled. It is you who are deceived, my boy. In your father's kingdom there are many islands and many princesses. But you are under your father's spell, so you cannot see them.' The prince pensively returned home. When he saw his father, he looked him in the eyes. Father, is it true that you are not a real king, but only a magician?' The king smiled, and rolled back his sleeves. Yes, my son, I am only a magician.' Then the man on the shore was God.'The man on the shore was another magician.' I must know the real truth, the truth beyond magic.' There is no truth beyond magic, ' said the king. The prince was full of sadness. He said, 'I will kill myself.' The king by magic caused death to appear. Death stood in the door and beckoned to the prince. The prince shuddered. He remembered the beautiful but unreal islands and the unreal but beautiful princesses. Very well, ' he said. 'I can bear it.' You see, my son, ' said the king, 'you too now begin to be a magician.John Fowles
The soul is like an uninhabited worldthat comes to life only when God lays His headagainst us.Thomas Aquinas
Humanity does not suffer from the disease of wrong beliefs but humanity suffers from the contagious nature of the lack of belief. If you have no magic with you it is not because magic does not exist but it is because you do not believe in it. Even if the sun shines brightly upon your skin every day, if you do not believe in the sunlight, the sunlight for you does not exist.C. Joybell C.
Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scare you. They're there to let you know that something is worth it.C. Joybell C.
Faith may be defined briefly as an illogical belief in the occurrence of the improbable.H.l. Mencken
My desire and wish is that the things I start with should be so obvious that you wonder why I spend my time stating them. This is what I aim at because the point of philosophy is to start with something so simple as not to seem worth stating, and to end with something so paradoxical that no one will believe it.Bertrand Russell
