Bedenking: Toezegging zonder bezinning


“Toezegging zonder bezinning is fanatisme in actie,
hoewel bezinning zonder toezegging de verlamming van alle actie is.”
~ John Mackay.

Bedenking: Uitstappen in geloof


”Wanneer je uitstapt in geloof, zie je vaak een doorbraak”
~ Bobby Schuller

Bobby Schuller zegt dat je in veel bijbelverhalen ziet dat mensen eerst een stap in geloof zetten – niet wetend wat komen gaat- om vervolgens daarna de verandering te zien.

Ik realiseer me dat daar enorm veel moed voor nodig is, maar jij bent moedig. Maak de keuze vandaag!
Welke keuze stel jij al een tijdje uit?

Robert H Schuller zegt:

‘If it is going to be, it is up to me!”

Feeling ourselves to be the-one-who-is-experiencing


”Once we feel ourselves to be the-one-who-is-experiencing we know who we are
and the process of self-forgetting ceases.
If we resist the temptation to focus on some familiar way of being
we will lose all sense of who we are.
We will be swept up in the freedom of existence,
without any sense of being separate from it.”
~ Jeff Carreira

Blossoming and healing the planet


””There is so much love in your heart that you could heal the entire planet.

But just for now let us use this love to heal you.
Feel a warmth beginning to glow in your heart center,
a softness, a gentleness.
Let this feeling begin to change the way you think and talk about yourself.”.”

Philosophy revealing relationship between the language that we use and our perception of what is real


”One of the things that the study of philosophy reveals is the profound relationship between the language that we use and our perception of what is real.

We don’t have to look too deeply into philosophy before we begin to realize that our knowledge about anything is constructed in language and is always found in the form of sentences in our heads.
Without language it seems that we cannot have knowledge about anything.

~ Jeff Carreira”
