Everything in nature serves a purpose.

The fog’s purpose is to remind me the beauty of Now.

Youth is not a time of life ; it is a state of mind ;

it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees ;

it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigour of the emotions ;

it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

.

Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity of the appetite,

for adventure over the love of ease.

This often exists in a man of sixty more than a boy of twenty.

Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.

.

Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

Worry, fear, self – distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.

.

Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonder, the unfailing child-like appetite of what’s next,

and the joy of the game of living .

In the centre of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station;

so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the Infinite, so long are you young.

..

When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism,

then you are grown old, even at twenty,

but as long as your aerials are up, to catch the waves of optimism, there is hope you may die young at eighty.

.

Sometimes I believe in as many as six impossible things

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.

I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass

the world is too full to talk about.

Outside temperature minus 1 degree this morning.

I jumped into the ice cold ocean.

I didn’t know that I can do this 😁

Don’t depend on death to liberate you from imperfections.

You are exactly the same after death as you were before.

Nothing changes.

You only give up the body.

If you are a thief, or a lier, or a cheater before death, you don’t become an angel merely by dying.

If such were possible, then let us all go and jump in the ocean now and become angels at once.

Whatever you’ve made of yourself thus far, so will you be here after.

And when you reincarnate, you bring that same nature with you.

To change, you have to make the effort.

This world is the place to do it.

Change yourself, and you have done your part in changing the world.

 

Millions of people never analyze themselves.

Mentally, they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment.

Preoccupied with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Working and sleeping. 

And going here and there to be entertained.

They don’t know what or why they are seeking.

No why they never realize complete happiness and lasting satisfaction.

By evading self analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environment.

True self analysis is the greatest art of progress.

The real question is not whether life exists after death.

The real question is whether you are alive before death.

Have you ever smelled this delicate beauty ?

The subtlety and dreaminess of its scent is far beyond description.

For me, Lilac is the symbol of Appreciation of Life.
