Every now and then I come across, usually by accident, a quote the strikes a cord with me. here are some I really like…
“We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.” ~ Stephen Covey
“Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities” ~ Albert Einstein
“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness”~ The Dalai Lama
“Life isn’t about finding yourself, Life is about creating yourself”
“Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.” ~David Searls
These are only a few that I like, I am always finding more and it makes me sit and wonder, what were these people going through at that time in their lives to have such wisdom.
Did they experience pain? or maybe a epiphany? or was it just something someone said as they were going about their day.
Every day we meet someone who, unbeknown to them changes our lives in a way they could never even know.
Next time someone cuts you off in the car, relax and smile, they may have stopped you from going the wrong way, the next time someone goes really slow, smile, they may have prevented you from having an accident further up and the next time someone is nasty, hostile or angry towards you, smile, they have nowhere to go with that!
