"Nothing out in the world can provide permanent relief from the pain you feel in your heart. At best, it provides avoidance, avoidance of life, to not face your own problems, to not accept life as it is, because you want it to be different than what is present. The key to peace is total acceptance for the way life unfolds, instead of meeting life with resistance."
"You say there is much confusion is going on in the world today and you do not know what to do. Truly I say unto you, to each of us: Love each other. Love your self. Love your enemy. Love when it hurts the most. Love and accept all of life as it is, for love lights up the world through expanding creating unity, while fear as an energy darkens the world through contracting and creating the illusion of separation."
"No one needs to be perfect to serve God, others or himself. We all come to serve from the place of our imperfections. From our imperfections we learn to correct our mistakes by making a new choice in this moment, learning from what we have done in the past, to be better a day at a time. Others see that they too our worthy, and from our actions and this gives them permission do the same. They see they are capable of changing their own lives and to not place expectations on themselves to be at a state of mind they are not at the moment. This allows them to love and accept where they are to begin their journey of the spirit. Perfection is in the process of the journey."
"Projection makes perception. If you are lonely and single and are not comfortable being alone, you hate seeing couples in public (reality). Because, you hate that you are alone. Accepting your loneliness is the key. Vice versa, if you love being alone or in a relationship, you love seeing couples in public (reality). Your thoughts about what your hate or love, manifest in your life as a result. You are that creative. Therefore, accept the reality of what is, instead of resisting it is imperative to changing your perception of how you look at life. Otherwise, you think life is your enemy, when all along it was your friend."
"Attachment may seem okay as long as you stay together, but when you and the other person decide to part ways, the attachment becomes painful. You labor under the misconception that you need this person and cannot live without them. That is not true. That is an idea that keeps you a prisoner of your own mind."
Paul Ferrini, Conversations with a Teacher of Love
"Your happiness is not based on conditions. It is present always within you. Believing your thoughts takes you away from that happiness, not believing that you are your thoughts, brings you back home."
"Sometimes the people we love have their own issues to workout, and we ask ourselves, “What did I do wrong?” When in fact, it has nothing to do you at all. During these times it is best to not blame your self and ask, “How can I be of service to them?” All they may need is someone to listen, which helps both of you become closer. By listening, you may build a bridge, for compassion and opening your heart. Which may be the very gift they need at the time. So just be present without judgment towards yourself or another and let miracles take place."
"You do not have to live up to other people’s expectations. Nor, do they have to live up to yours. It is your job to live up to your own expectations and not project them on to others. When you do, apologize and make a new choice, not the same one."
"Duality does not actually exist. It only appears, because we think it into being with our thoughts. It ceases to be, when you thoughts cease to describe what is inherently, unspeakable. What is so, is merely what is reality. When you cease for a moment to resist it, name it, label it, hate it and just accept it, peace is present. Now, you’re on path to taming your mind."
"The ego never existed, except in our own mind; separation never existed except, in our own thoughts; fear never existed except, in our own reactions to believing our thoughts; War between man has never existed, except in the disagreement of one mans thoughts verses another; peace, love and oneness has always been present, but we’re too busy reacting to our minds thoughts, emotions and beliefs to take a moment of silence and see the real."
