Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.

To the ego, the present moment hardly exists. Only past and future are considered important.

Pleasure is always derived from something outside you, whereas joy arises from within.

Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life.

If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.

You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.

Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.

Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.

To love is to recognize yourself in another.
