    … “You can only see clearly with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes.” – Antoine de Saint Exupéry.
    I had to go searching for it. It did not come immediately. Still, it says what I deeply feel true. It lets our heart melt, so touching and guiding us truthfully.

          Hi!…and “sure about?.”……I am not sure ( but am sensing from here ) about your question…….are you are asking about the specific aspects in the original message…..if you are then …i know it by experiencing it directly …and applying many inner exercises to take it further ….thie quality is no secret…but due to humans allowing it to be atrophied in them it become lost in ego thinking. A good example is the “Holy Grail” ..The Grail IS the qualities of the heart, that was the true knowing of it…..BUT for the sake of greed and wanting power over others it became a false notion that it was a Cup Joshua Emmanuel drain from at the so-called “Last Supper” a very convenient lie!

        🙏❤️✨
        Recently a young woman presented with these qualities and abilities of a highly permeable and loving heart. But she needs to add how to stay in the deep heart´s contact with all and in the same time be able to stay grounded. It feels to me that cultivating gratefulness might be one essential part to bring balance.

    Love all the responses here & the quotes, I am learning so much.
    Like many have said already, there are so many quotes that resonate with me. Love love, “This too shall pass”.
    I have this quote from Winston Churchill on my fridge,
    “Never never never give up.” Always a gentle reminder for me.❤️

    I love this question ♥ It’s a joy to read everyone’s quotes…all so meaningful and each one of them speaks to me. I am a “do-er” and am learning how to simply “be”. And that is enough. “Be still and know that I am God” is engraved on a plaque in my meditation room. It reminds me that I don’t have to earn God’s Love..it is freely given. It reminds me that God is in conrol and I get to let go.
    I live with chronic illness, and since I’m a “do-er” this provides me with lots of opportunities for radical acceptance! Mother Teresa helps me when I’m frustrated that I have limitations and feel like I’m not contributing enough. This quote makes my heart smile and opens up my idea of what “fulfilling my purpose” means in this life:

    “We can’t all do great things. But we can all do small things with great love”

    What a cool question! ‘Be good do good’ and ‘love all serve all’ come to mind, but those are not my answer. Something with ‘peace’ or ‘peaceful’ in it sounds better – I look fwd to reading the posts! 🙂

    “Peace I ask of thee, o river, peace peace peace” – that’s where I’ve gotten before reading the posts.

    Have read the quotes now – And the Winner, for me, is: “This too shall pass.”

    “Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, And the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” – Attributed to the Buddha

    When I’m overwhelmed by work or events I remember the meaning of a line from a novel I read last year that I wrote in my journal. I don’t recall the exact wording but basically the question “What do I do now?! There’s so much to do!” is answered by “You do the next thing that you can do.” That helps with the overwhelm.

    And my own, when asked to sum up my career path in 6 words for a conference panel discussion: Always doing work I believe in.

    When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on – Franklin D Roosevelt. – During my exceptionally trying times, I stand firm to this quote, if there is a knot, I still have something to hold on to….even if it is just the strength to stand up and face another day.

    There are several quotes that quiet my mind. Not my circus, not my monkeys. Don’t force solutions. Look for the good. I can choose peace instead of this. Let it be.

      I use this one often in my work life to encourage investment in walking/bicycling facilities. Some of our biggest trail systems started with one segment 40 years ago. We wouldn’t have them today if someone hadn’t started then. So my version is sometimes “The best time to start a trail system was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”

    There’s not one quote for me. There are many. So many! I write quotes down in my journal all the time. Depending on the quote, depending on the day, certain words resonate more.

    “Not what you have but what you use, not what you see but what you choose, these are the things that mar or bless the sum of human happiness.” Stumbled upon this quote in my young adult years and it comes back to me when needed ever since. Have since discovered it was first shared by Joseph Fort Newton, a minister writer from early 1900s. Thank you Joseph!

    I don’t really have one, but this is apt for today – Seize the day! I’d got myself up, showered, hair done and dressed up (because I work from home I am usually in casual comfy clothes) and was about to head out to pick up a friend to go and be interviewed and filmed for a documentary. I then received a txt to say that filming was postponed due to covid. I was about to change out of my dress, back into comfy mode and crack on with work, but then decided to instead meet my friend and go for coffee with her as she would be at a loose end. We ended up joining her early morning swimming group for coffee and breakfast, I met a new person whom I clicked with as we had so much in common. I’m so happy I decided to go out.

    Anyhoo, after my daily morning ritual visit to this website for question of the day and my gratitude journal, I must now start work, but what a lovely and unexpected start I had!
