When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you. ~African Proverb
If I am not for myself, who will be? ~Pirke Avoth
If one completes the journey to one’s own heart, one will find oneself in the heart of everyone else.
The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
When have you changed a long held attitude and recognized the impact on your life? What was the attitude you changed? How did it influence your life?
The most important relationship we can all have is the one you have with yourself, the most important journey you can take is one of self-discovery. To know yourself, you must spend time with yourself, you must not be afraid to be alone. Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.
We never get to the bottom of ourselves on our own. We discover who we are face to face and side by side with others in work, love and learning…
– Robert Neelly Bellah
