Eternity:
I am drawn to the wild edge of the ocean of my being

Which beliefs bring out the best in you?
Which beliefs hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?
Test your beliefs with as much objectivity
as you can bring to the subject.
Be willing to let go of those beliefs
that represent your parents' opinions,
or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.
Fortunately, in most cases our own loving presence
is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I have one yardstick by which I test every major problem -

It is not our place to know the mind of God.
Spirit knows what is best in the long run -
best for each of us individually,

and experience physical and emotional suffering
in ourselves, our family, and our friends.
I consider this belief in God's infinite power
and ultimate wisdom to be the true test of faith.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our mettle is tested by storms,
not by calm.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A faith that hasn't been tested can't be trusted.

If one is physically disabled,
one cannot afford to be psychologically disabled as well.
- Stephen Hawking

Don't aim at success.
The more you aim at it and make it a target,
the more you are going to miss it.

the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication
to a cause greater than oneself.
- Viktor E. Frankl

a matter between oneself
and one's Maker and no one else's.

between the genius and his human qualities
that one has to ask oneself whether
a little less talent might not have been better.

perhaps a friend or spouse, perhaps a stranger,

In any case, when one gets angry,
they want to find someone to be "responsible" for what happened.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

whether it be others or oneself.

When you are alone you are not alone,
you are simply lonely -
and there is a tremendous difference
between loneliness and aloneness.
When you are lonely you are thinking of the other,
you are missing the other.
Loneliness is a negative state.
You are feeling that it would have been
better if the other were there -
your friend, your wife, your mother,
your beloved, your husband.
It would have been good if the other
were there, but the other is not.
Loneliness is absence of the other.
Aloneness is the presence of oneself.
Aloneness is very positive.
It is a presence, overflowing presence.
You are so full of presence
that you can fill the whole universe
with your presence and there is no need for anybody.
- Osho

I always pass on good advice.
It is the only thing to do with it.
It is never of any use to oneself.
- Oscar Wilde

In order to be an immaculate member of a flock of sheep,
one must above all be a sheep oneself.
- Albert Einstein

To know yet to think that one does not know is best;
Not to know yet to think that one knows
will lead to difficulty.

is to be continually fearing you will make one.

the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love.

to choose one's own way.
- Viktor E. Frankl

In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans.
