Know, O my son, that each thing in the universe is a vessel full to the brim with wisdom and beauty. It is a drop from the river of His Beauty...It is a hidden treasure because of its fullness. It has exploded and made the earth more brilliant than the skies. It has sprung up and make the earth like a sultan wearing a robe of satin.
- Rumi

God is Awake

Found this quote today...

Have courage for the great sorrows of life, and patience for the small ones. When you have laboriously accomplished your daily tasks, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.
–Victor Hugo

Seize This Moment for Change

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

- Andy Warhol

It's easy to fall into the trap of waiting for change. Waiting for things to get better, waiting for someone or something to make us happier, thinner, richer, more positive...insert your *wish* here ______.

But the truth is if you want something to change you've got to change it yourself.

This is good news because THAT is an empowering thought and as you all know, 
"you are what you think."
The other good news is that it starts NOW in this present moment because that is all there really is. 

So, whatever it is you want to change forget "seize the day" and seize this very moment my friends. 
Be that change NOW!
