Don't aim at success.

to a cause greater than oneself.

And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.

What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled
in the dirt once or twice.
Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.

Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic,
that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea -
and there is no experiment up to now
that has found any center in the brain
which corresponds to awareness.
The whole work of meditation is
to make you aware of all that is "mind"
and disidentify yourself from it.
That very separation is the
greatest revolution that can happen to man.
Now you can do and act on only that
which makes you more joyous, fulfills you,
gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.
But this is possible only if the master in you is awake.

this is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The River of Life has no meaning,
no good, no bad, no better, no worse,

The River of Life has no judgment, no expectation.
The River of Life just IS.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Anger? perhaps there is a better way.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

To leave the world a bit better ...
to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe

is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.
