The black man never will get anybody’s respect until he first learns to respect his own women.
As you begin this day, tell yourself, “Today I am incarnated anew! I am released from the hypnosis of my old habits and mistakes! Everything that I have long dreamed of doing I will accomplish in this, my new life.
When someone is going through a storm, your silent presence is more powerful than a million, empty words.
Yesterday is gone and tomorrow has not yet begun—today is here and now. How will I make this day count? What thoughts will I hold in mind? What tasks will I accomplish? How many lives will I touch?
Life is lived day by day, moment by moment. When I look at my life, I see a tapestry, each experience interwoven in a pattern that is uniquely mine. The overall design emerges more every day.
I do not need to worry about tomorrow! Instead, I joyously live for today and look forward to the blessings that unfold, revealing the beautiful tapestry of my life.
Today I hold the intention to create wonderful moments. I choose to bless others and experience the greatness of God.
Only where the state ends, there begins the human being who is not superfluous: there begins the song of necessity, the unique and inimitable tune.
Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
I still get very high and very low in life. Daily. But I’ve finally accepted the fact that sensitive is just how I was made, that I don’t have to hide it and I don’t have to fix it. I’m not broken.
Today I had a defying moment.
I encountered my ego.
It was about to swallow me up, and consume me.
But I stayed in the moment.
I observed the feelings. I did not cling to it. Nor judged it.
I simply smiled and laughed once I realize how foolish and false my thoughts are.
There is beauty when you realize your true self,
There is beauty in being aware, and conscious.
