Wise words - quotations to live by, from The Quote Garden. To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; In what you say of another, apply the test of kindness, necessity and truth, and let.

How often do you feel not good enough? Ugly? Judgmental of yourself? What does it feel like in your body?
Vulnerable share: I hate nearly every photo ever taken of me. I can nitpick myself to death, and give you 100 reasons why I am just not good looking. And that's just my physical appearance. What about how I feel inside myself?

I notice it feeling almost like a sickness. My body feels dense and heavy, there is an aching in my chest, usually there is a buzzing feeling of fight or flight with some light heart pounding, and my jaw feels tense, and my gaze feels narrow

My energy feels low, toxic, thick and compressed. There's a feeling in me of just.....wrongness. I look in the mirror, I judge all of my flaws. I wish I was better. I vow to "do" better, or "be" better, or make different choices to make myself feel better about myself.
How often is this a part of your inner dialogue? Have you ever tracked it? I would say for me, depending on the day, where I am in my cycle, etc, it can hover around 65%.
It's exhausting, and it's actually creating all of the things in my life that I DONT want. Fear. Loneliness. Blocks. Overwhelm. Keeps me from showing up fully, in every situation.

This morning in my meditation, I got curious about what it would be like to feel every cell in my body flushed with self-generated love.
I did a specific visualization and embodiment practice to bring that in to my body, and to feel love, as a physical sensation in every last little bit of flesh (and beyond -- all the way into the field surrounding me).
Mmmmmm.....wow. It was delicious when I got there.
And....it was not easy.
Again.
NOT. EASY.
Today I am saying YES to self-generated love. And trust me, I know you know it's a doozy. This is my walking mantra for today, my YES.

"Every inch of my body is pulsing with love."
"I choose loving words to myself in every moment."
"I'm expanding in love to be more love."
"Letting love for myself be alive in my body."
Etc.....

I know this is a really hard practice. Message me if you're interested in being supported in this.
I love you. Yes!!!!!!! I do

They say that wisdom comes with age, and these wise sayings will give you better You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love.

30 Inspirational Love Quotes For People Who Love From The Deepest Parts Of Their Soul

love wise saying

They say that wisdom comes with age, and these wise sayings will give you better judgement and a sense of purpose in life.

What is wisdom exactly? Wisdom is defined as, “the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement.”

If we’re lucky enough to have parents, mentors and advisors, then we have heard plenty of wise sayings about life.

We also know that you can’t just hear it once.

Life’s wisdom can often miss us because life moves so fast, that we have to practice standing still.

In many cultures and religions across the world, gaining wisdom is the ultimate goal.

Wisdom is seen as the highest form of understanding, which can lead you towards enlightenment.

Something I’ve learned in life is that my favorite quotes and sayings can often become principles to live by.

I hope these wise sayings about life can serve as guidelines for greater happiness, fulfillment, connection, and meaning.

Inspiring and wise sayings about life

Wise Sayings

1.) “You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”― Gautama Buddha

Before you pour your love into someone else, fill yourself up first.

2.) “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ― Rumi

Start with you. Start where you are. Changing the world is an exciting idea. Changing yourself makes it possible.

3.) “Man is a mystery. It needs to be unravelled, and if you spend your whole life unravelling it, don’t say that you’ve wasted time. I am studying that mystery because I want to be a human being.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Everything you do and have done has gotten you closer to who you really are and who you aspire to be. So in essence, even if you disagree with what you have done, it was never time wasted.

4.) “A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.” 
― Gautama Buddha

Words only go so far, we must live our message. Our true wisdom is displayed through our actions.

5.) “Sometimes it’s not enough to know what things mean, sometimes you have to know what things don’t mean.” ― Bob Dylan

Being wrong is just as powerful as being right. Sometimes, it’s even more powerful.

6.) “We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.” ― Alan Wilson Watts

Let’s be mindful of what we identify with and hold on to. Many times we think, “That’s just who I am, that just what I think…” But the truth is, many things we think and desire are not our own. Since our childhood, we’ve been looking for attention and acceptance and most of the time that came from ‘following directions’. Take some time to think about how you think.

7.) “You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger.” ― Gautama Buddha

Once you’re angry, the harm is already done.

8.) “If others tell us something we make assumptions, and if they don’t tell us something we make assumptions to fulfill our need to know and to replace the need to communicate. Even if we hear something and we don’t understand we make assumptions about what it means and then believe the assumptions. We make all sorts of assumptions because we don’t have the courage to ask questions.” ― Miguel Ruiz

 The only thing worse than making assumptions is to believe them.

9.) “I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy. ”  ― Anthony Robbins

Don’t let your pain stay as pain. Get something from it. Let your pain push you towards growth.

10.) “The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.”― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wisdom doesn’t have to be bleak. Let your understanding help you recognize the unexplainable.

11.) “Just as a snake sheds its skin, we must shed our past over and over again.”  ― Gautama Buddha

Growing isn’t something that happens once. It happens again and again, and again!

12.) “This is my simple religion. No need for temples. No need for complicated philosophy. Your own mind, your own heart is the temple. Your philosophy is simple kindness.”― Dalai Lama XIV

Life = Love

13.) “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln

14.) “Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.” – Denis Waitley

15.) “Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way.” – Al Franken

Every man ought to be above his position in the sense of being more than his position. To be king and nothing more, judge and nothing more, tallowe-handler and nothing more, is to allow the accident to swallow up the essence, and prove a miserable failure when measured by the true standard of human worth. A wise man would scorn to be like the tower of Pisa, leaning everlastingly one way; and as each special occupation has its own tendencies to narrowness, exclusiveness, and misconception, one continuous object of education should be to give scope and elbow-room in other directions. When governments, or societies, with imperial rescripts, acts of parliament, or conventionalities, hedge men round with directions and prohibitions, we rejoice in the brave spirits who manfully do what they are told not to do; and part of everybody's education should be a training to resist the slavery by which custom is always trying to enthral the world. ~Henry James Slack (1818–1896), The Philosophy of Progress in Human Affairs, "Chapter XIII: Education," 1860

To sensible men, every day is a day of reckoning. ~John W. Gardner


Folks, I'm telling you,
birthing is hard
and dying is mean—
so get yourself a little loving
in between.
~Langston Hughes (1902–1967)


There is a time for departure even when there's no certain place to go. ~Tennessee Williams


Face what you think you believe and you will be surprised. ~William Hale White


Young men, be masters of yourselves. The world needs you. ~James E. Shepard (1875–1947), quoted in Mitchell Davis, One Hundred Choice Quotations by Prominent Men and Women of the Negro Race, 1917


Just remember, there's a right way and a wrong way to do everything and the wrong way is to keep trying to make everybody else do it the right way. ~M*A*S*H, Colonel Potter


If you don't understand the cause of the problem — your solution will become part of it. ~Dr. Idel Dreimer, www.lumpenbangenpiano.com

And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
