... when the crutches are broken ...

A couple of pieces of digital art, and some quotations written in my agenda in the last week.  Words to remind me, words to guide me,  words to inspire me to right thought and right action.  I hope these quotations prove helpful for you too.





The voice of the divine in us
is counterpoised not by the voice of the devil,
but by the voice of fear.

~Abraham Maslow



There is no enlightened being,
only fully enlightened actions

~Shunryu Suzuk




Only when all the crutches and props are broken ...
and there is no hope for security,
does it become possible to experience ...
meaning.

~Carl Jung




When you argue with reality,
you lose;
but only 100% of the time.

~Byron Katie

  7. You know I love these photos, Bonnie, with the hot pink and purple!

    Any quote by Byron Katie stops me for a moment. It seems the words you post quite often fill me at the right time...

    Cheers!
