Sacrifice.

Sacrifice is the practice of developing the habit of giving without expectation of immediate reward,
and cultivating faith in the larger generalized reciprocity of the universe.
It requires a leap beyond our fear of scarcity, our miserliness in the face of uncertain yields,
in order to let go of a little of what we find precious so that it may be shared.

Sacrifice cultivates the discipline of sharing. It does not require that we give up everything,
but it does require that we give.

Siegfried Goodfellow

Quote Round-up.

I write pretty much every day, so when I was going through my notebooks the other day, I found a lot of quotes in the margins.

(Most of these seem to be unattributed, so please let me know if you know the source.  Thanks.)

“Most rarely align with their true power, because it seems so illogical to them that there is power in relaxation, in letting go, or in love or joy, or bliss.  Most people do not understand that their true power lies in releasing resistance – which is the only obstacle to their true power.

We want you to breathe, rather than try, to relax rather than to offer effort, to smile rather than struggle, to be, rather than to do.”

They’ll take you places you didn’t want to go,
and see things you never wanted to see,
but be not afraid,
for they are there with you,
for everything.

I love you…because you are the light that others can see.

We don’t see things as they are.  We see things as we are.
