Quote of the Day: Dr. Wayne Dyer

"You're not what you have and you're not what you do; you're an
infinite, divine being disguised as a successful person who has
accumulated a certain amount of stuff. The stuff is not you. For that
reason, you must avoid being attached to it in any way."

- Dr. Wayne Dyer

Quote of the Day

What's your favorite quote?

My FaceBook question: What's your favorite quote?
A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
It ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth
When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Happiness is something that comes into our lives through doors we don’t even remember leaving open and learning to enjoy life's scenery, even on a detour.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
a few from bruce lee Ive always loved-
A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.
Bruce Lee
...I'm not in this world to live up to your expectations and you're not in this world to live up to mine.
Bruce Lee
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
Bruce Lee
Here's one I heard from the back seat on the way home from school today..."hey Corynne did you know chicken nuggets actually have chicken in them?" LOL
"I might not be the most beautiful or the sexiest, nor have the most perfect body...I might not be anyone's first choice...but I am a GREAT choice...I don't pretend to be someone else...cuz I'm too good at being ME...I might not be proud of some of the things I've done...but I am proud of who I am today. Take me as I am... or don't take me at all!" - Unknown!
"try try again until a lamb becomes a lion...." from robin hood the new movie.
"If God dwells inside us like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting” -Jack Handy
Only God can judge me ....Tupac Shakur
Life is a waste of time, time is a waste of lives, so lets get wasted and have the times of our lives!
There are so many, but I love this one by Mike Rowe:
"Never follow your passion, but by all means, bring it with you."
Great quotes! Here's one of mine:

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.
Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far then you ever dreamed yourself to be.

And my VERY fav:

(rainer maria rilke)
i beg you.... to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. don`t search for the answers, which could not be given you now, because you would not be able to live them. and the point is... See More, to live everything. live the questions now. perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without ever noticing it, live your way into the answer...

Yin Yang

Wondering what Yin Yang means anyways?

Yin Yang (in the West it's referred to as Yin and Yang) defined:

Yin-Yang. Yin corresponds to darkness, coldness, dampness and Earth; yang to light, warmth, dryness and Heaven. They are in constant conflict, but neither force can ever completely vanquish the other.

The two opposite energies in Chinese thought, from whose interaction and fluctuation the universe and its diverse forms emerge. They are the polar extremes of the unbounded Tao of the supreme and ultimate source (t'ai-chi) and from their intermingling arise the five elements (wu-hsing), which give rise to the myriad of forms, and to history and time. The yin-yang symbol expresses this interaction, the with the two spots (white in the dark, dark in the white) indicating that each of the two contains the seed of the other and is about to produce the replication of its opposite in interaction. All oppositions can be mapped onto yin and yang, yin representing e.g. the feminine, yielding, receptive, moon, water, clouds, even numbers, and the yang the masculine, hard, active, red, the sun, and odd numbers.

Two principles in Chinese philosophy and religion: yin represents a dark, negative, feminine figure, and yang symbolizes a positive, light, masculine figure. Together they are believed to influence the destinies of other people and things. Also, some refer to the dark segment as the autumnal equinox, the light section as the vernal equinox, the dark dot as the summer solstice, and the light dot as the winter solstice, thus representing the entire celestial phenomenon of seasons and the cycle of the sun. 

I'm thinkin about getting a Yin Yang tattoo... anyone like any of the above? Have any ideas?

QUOTE of the DAY!

Problems and personal challenges are never-ending. As long as we are experiencing new ones we know we are growing. If the same problem keeps popping up it means we need to apply ourselves diligently in that area of our life. We learn from our experiences sooner or later.
