Live With Passion and Hope in 2017
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” – Neil Gaiman
“Ring out the false, ring in the true.” – Alfred Lord Tennyson
“Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.” – Jonathan Edwards
“I might be a tree that is buffeted by wind and rain and scorched by fire, but I would never be a tree that burns and dies. Even a branch that has been scorched will have new buds when spring comes. If I continue on my way with humility and strong conviction, the day will surely come when the world will reap the benefit of what I do.” – Sun Myung Moon
Focus on Love, Truth, Beauty and Goodness
These 4 things are the foundation of the universe. We may not understand them, and the world might manipulate and abuse them, but they are the root of all desire and happiness. The only way to discover their reality is to seek to embody their essence.
Not temporary love, but everlasting love. Relative truth has a place, but absolute truth is the structure of the universe. External beauty passes with time, but the beauty of virtues is eternal. Goodness is the unity of these three expressed in action. We are born with the potential to manifest goodness.
“You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.” – Rumi
