Quote Notes

Image accreditation to profilephotocovers.com

Every Monday and Friday I’ll posting a “Fun Quote Note” to wOrds∙Of∙the∙One. I’m a big quote person, and I get inspired by the smallest snippets that sages of all ages have shared. I gain so much from so little, and just want to get in the giving quote loop, and fun of it all.

All this starts when you might ask? Today! So enjoy a little snippet of soul (more…)

Magic Moment

A Words first…the repost of another.

We all need a muse. In Mr. Coelho I have found one of many. The whole basis of wOrds•Of•the•One is on the inspiration I draw from the sages in this world sharing their own. So with no further a due,  we give to  you…

The magic moment.

As surly as spring showers quench May flowers, with reflection comes refreshment.

Learned, patient, and precise was the master craftsman who could cut an intricate dovetail joint from sturdy wood. With the change in seasons came the swelling and contraction of the once living tree. The craftsman understood that long after the bark was severed from its roots with the earth, it still breathed.

Honesty Obstacle

The biggest obstacle One has towards being honest, is the obstacle of being honest with one’s self.  Honesty takes guts, requires  bravery, imposes patience. But if One just gets out of their own way, the once thought mountain becomes minute, the block becomes a beautiful backdrop in the big picture of life.


Refresh Worry

There will be times that we will move a little more sluggish, eat convenient instead of conscious, and  let the our circumstance influence us as opposed to activating our environment. We’ll feel weighed down, and maybe not know exactly why. We’ll be more irritated without clear reason, and feel like general happiness is eluding us.

Hopefully we’ll be kind enough to ourselves to adjust and refresh rather than judge and punish. (more…)

Gentleness Threat

One must understand that a threat is born from a place of fear, rejection, perceived pain and difference. It’s expected that One  should  respond to a threat from the same place of inner fear, and become defensive–build a wall, and protect One’s self from the apparent danger or discomfort.

Though, what would be different if One responded with great gentleness? Firm, yet friendly? Stern, but centered? We can change what it means to threaten and be threatened by changing our perceptions of possible outcomes. (more…)

Sweet Giving

Nurture Strength

Just as the muscles in One’s body, strength of spirit needs to be exercised. It is the harshest times in life that reveal One’s true depth of power and strongest will to survive. And because One is not in a constant state of struggle, it is not enough to wait for those moments to use our strength.

One needs to take care and cultivate their spirit, nourishing the roots of their soul with patience and healthy self-love. Only when One learns this practice will they then be able to handle hard times with great power and grace.

*Note to the One Reader*

Joyous family affairs briefly took my full attention away from my memorization project. But if I just Keep Interested and Nurture my Strength to continue, I will hold these words in my heart until I am grey. Almost there!..
