5 Motivational RayQuotes for Your Saturday Morning

Good Saturday, dear reader. There’s no bigger myth out there than that we don’t have choices about how to see and interact with the world around us.

We most certainly do. These quotes may seem diverse, but they share this in common. They remind us to see the world through compassionate and inclusive eyes and ourselves as positive vehicles of change,

Working together, we can create a better world for ourselves and everyone else.

Have a beautiful Saturday!

More Compassion and Empathy

Happy Sunday, my friends. Can I ask a favor of you? Can you really focus and entertain the importance of this topic.

We live in a social media world and a real world at the moment that is crippled by toxic anger and judgment.

Compassion and empathy are the baseline emotions of an advanced civilization. If humanity is to reach its destined potential, we must establish them as our baseline. The easy anger and ready judgment that marks our culture is a step backwards for the human race.

We will never become the enlightened, spacefaring civilization we can become, if we are forever tangled with each other in circular arguments and chronic conflict.

Consider this as a new course for you personally, because that’s where this shift must begin, and for our civilization as a whole.

As you do remember how special you are and how special is every single person you encounter today. Let’s treat each other as such.

More Than Our Politics

We are, we must be more than our politics. We are here on a bigger mission than could ever be captured in an election or by any candidate.

When we get caught up too much in these parties or any candidate, we risk forgetting who we really are and why we’re really here.

You are a one-in-a-trillion miracle and so is EVERY other human being you encounter today, including those you vehemently disagree with.

Forgetting this, we forget that our personal choices and decisions will decide us far more than the outcome of an election.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!

We’re All Dealt a Hand

Good morning, my friends. I think it’s more than fair to say life isn’t always fair to us.

It’s easy to spends weeks, months, decades, your whole life recounting the ways life hasn’t given you a fair deal of the cards. You may even be 200 percent right. Life may not have offered you the same chances others had by default.

Here’s the thing. We have two choices. We can spend our lives focused on the hand we were dealt or we can focus our efforts on playing the hand we have with all we have. The shocking part is that as we do the latter, life eventually deals us a better hand.

We will always miss the rocket to greatness, if we’re hanging around the station waiting on the bus to fairness. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t be working for a fairer, more just society. It’s just an acknowledgement that you don’t have the time to wait for the world to move, when you can simply deal yourself a new hand.

In case no one else has reminded you today, YOU are AWESOME!

The Answers: They’re Here and Now Not There and Then

Just like a person, a nation and a species cannot look anywhere and not see its conscious or unconscious choices manifested.

Indifference to injustice burns things down as surely as a match. Intolerance for different opinions ends a civil society. Playing into the game of “Us” and “Them” only allows the gatekeepers of an unhappy status quo to extend their games of control.

Mindset makes us and mindsets break us. If we live by our aspirations rather than our grievances, we’ll climb every mountain that stands between us and better future.

If we choose to persist in paradigms that keep us weak, divided, and conquered; there’s probably no way to prevent our eventual self-destruction.
That choice does not begin with anyone else. It does not depend on the outcome of any election. It starts with you and me and it starts right now!

Don’t worry. That’s great news. You don’t have to count on anyone to begin the change but you.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are AWESOME!
