10 May


by L. Samoilowitsch Bakst

Passion is a feeling that tells you: this is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I’m going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy.

Wayne Walter Dyer, born on 10 May 1940, Sun in Taurus and Moon in Sagittarius, American psychologist.

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.

Conflict cannot survive without your participation.

Whatever variety evolution brings forth… Every new dimension of world-response…means another modality for God’s trying out his hidden essence and discovering himself through the surprises of world-adventure…the heightening pitch and passion of life that go with the twin rise of perception and motility in animals. The ever more sharpened keenness of appetite and fear, pleasure and pain, triumph and anguish, love and even cruelty – their very edge is the deity’s gain. Their countless, yet never blunted incidence – hence the necessity of death and new birth – supplies the tempered essence from which the Godhead reconstitutes itself. All this, evolution provides in the mere lavishness of its play and sternness of its spur. Its creatures, by merely fulfilling themselves in pursuit of their lives, vindicate the divine venture. Even their suffering deepens the fullness of the symphony. Thus, this side of good and evil, God cannot lose in the great evolutionary game.
