Love can only survive

We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.

Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.

Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.”

~ Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are



“No person ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock dawn his competitors. The sensible worker does not knock dawn those who work with him. Don’t knock dawn your friends. Don’t knock dawn your enemies. Don’t knock dawn yourself.”~ Lord Alfred Tennyson, 1809-1892, English Poet


The labyrinth of time

“Within the information field there is no time: From the first few nanoseconds of the Big Bang, the universe had encoded all potential future states of its enclosed system. Like a huge computer hard drive, the universe stores everything as a form of information that can be turned into physical reality as each wave function collapses.

In effect, this means that information on everything that has happened and everything that can happen is encoded within this huge database.

If this is the case then not only every actual future but also every potential future has an existence within this information field. Indeed, within this information field there is no time, just a permanent ‘now’ in which everything exists as an informational potentiality.”

~Anthony Peake in The Labyrinth of Time
