Quote Tuesday

Quotes. Made in notepadImage via Wikipedia
Between stimulus and response  there is a space. In that peace is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. ~Victor Frankl

The reason for “Quote Tuesday” is simple. I believe that quotes are less happenstance utterances and more words of wisdom condensed into short, concise morsels that are ideal for our non-stop, hurry up society.  With this in mind, I was delighted to read “How Inspirational Quotes Can Change Lives” on one of my favorite websites Wisdom A La Carte. http://j.mp/fQZ4LV. The article, written by Sook Fun Chen, opens: 
“Do not underestimate the power of inspirational quotes. Great quotes can not only change lives, but might change a nation as a whole, if everybody studies and listens to the wisdom of the wise men. Words have enormous power!” http://j.mp/eotGCp
For the entire article, please go here http://j.mp/eotGCp. I am not saying that reading one quote can change your entire life. It is my hope that through these quotes that I post, you might glean some words of wisdom that inspires you toward positive life changes, as you travel along your own spiritual path.

Blessings and a very happy new year, Lydia

Light My Fire

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flames by an encounter with another human being. ~Albert Schweitzer

Today, you have the power, the spark, to ignite the cold embers within another. It takes no more than being exactly who you are. Bring your heart filled with love and kindness, out into the world. Smile warmly and say hello to everyone that you meet, acknowledging both their existence and oneness with you. Who can resist you today? Go out there and light some fires and feel amazing while so. Blessings and Namaste.
