More Turning Lemons Into Lemonaid

In 1914, Thomas Edison's lab burned down, and years' worth of his work was destroyed.  This could easily be described as the worst thing to happen to Edison, but the inventor instead chose to see it as an energizing opportunity that forced him to rebuild and re-examine much of his work. Edison reportedly said at the time: 

"Thank goodness all our mistakes were burned up.  Now we can start again fresh."

“A drop of rain falling on the ground disappears in no time at all. But it is still there somehow; even if it is absorbed into the soil, it’s still there in another form.  If it evaporates, it’s still there in the air.  It’s become vapor; you don’t see the drop of rain, but that doesn’t mean it’s no longer there.  A cloud can never die.  A cloud can become rain or snow or ice, but a cloud cannot become nothing.  To die means from something we become nothing, from being we pass into non-being.  That is our idea of death.  But meditation helps us to touch our true nature of no-birth and no-death.  Before the cloud manifests as a cloud, the cloud has been water vapor, has been the ocean.  So it has not come from non-being into being.  Our notion of birth is just a notion.  Our notion of death is just a notion.”  
- Thich Nhat Hanh

"There are some things that cannot be learned quickly and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things and because it takes a man's life to know them, the little new that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave." - Ernest Hemingway

people are 
looking for the

"We are all artists, every single one of us. 
Our canvas is our lives.  
Every choice we make is a dot that goes onto our canvas.
At first, the dots are tiny and scattered and seemingly unconnected.
But gradually, over time, a picture appears. 

Living is an art.

Don't let anyone tell you differently.
(And don't let anyone tell you it's easy.)
It takes hard work to keep life simple.
It requires focus to make it meaningful.
Sometimes it feels like a balancing act between learning to hang on and learning to let go. 
But your art is your life."

- Lisa Borgnes Giramonti

"It is so easy to blame others for our position in life. People blame the economy, politicians, bosses, and all types of third parties for their problems. Once you truly accept that you control who you are, you will find that optimism and success come naturally. Remember, opportunity is usually found in the valleys, not at the peaks."

"...the programmes we're running on are mainly cellular memories that are activated, and these cellular memories are pushing energy upwards. So every time the body contracts, a cellular memory is activated; by habitually contracting, the body tries to protect itself from re-experiencing pain. It moves from ease and being alive into a shock reaction, into its survival mode." - Florian Schlosser

When Separated From Harmony

"When you are not happy you go out of sync with the Universe.  Everything flows in the Universe... everything is one, like a beautiful symphony orchestra, because it is in harmony... all moving in harmony with oneness.  When you feel angry, upset, depressed,  you immediately separate with others, you are immediately out of harmony, you are out of tune.  Just like blowing the trumpet at the wrong time, it hurts your ear.  When a person is unhappy with themselves, they are separated, they are out of tune with the Universe.  It is as simple as that...when you are in tune you are in grace.  All we can ever be is in alignment with what is...both the negative and positive are needed.  Acknowledge without shame for having any negativity.  Accept it, for the moment that you acknowledge it...there is a force inside you...the center....comes and supports you...because the Universe is Love.
- Burt Harding"
