Inspirational Quotes and Poetry

I love you not only for what you are,
But for what I am when I am with you.

I love you, not only for what
You have made of yourself,...
But for what you are making of me.

I love you for putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over all the foolish, weak things
That you can't help dimly seeing there.

And for drawing out into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.

I love you because you are helping me
to make of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern, but a temple.

Out of the works of my every day
Not a reproach, but a song.

I love you because you have done
More than any creed could have done
To make me good.
And more than any fate could have done
To make me happy.

You have done it without a touch,
Without a word, without a sign.

You have done it by being yourself.
Perhaps that is what being a friend means,
After all.

Inspirational Quotes and Poetry

"If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter, floating a few feet above a field somewhere, people would come from everywhere to marvel at it. People would wal...k around it marveling at its big pools of water, its little pools, and the water flowing between the pools. People would marvel at the bumps on it, and the holes in it, and they would marvel at the very thin layer of gas surrounding it and the water suspended in the gas. The people would marvel at all the creatures walking around the surface of the ball and at the creatures in the water. The people would declare it sacred because it was the only one, and they would protect it so that it would not be hurt. The ball would be the greatest wonder known, and people would come to pray to it, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know beauty, and to wonder how it could be. People would love it and defend it with their lives because they would somehow know that their lives, their own roundness, could be nothing without it. If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter..."

Inspirational Quotes and Poetry

A Flower

Have you ever considered the flower?

It doesn’t live long, but while it does, it displays itself so beautifully. It doesn’t concern itself with tomor...row, or yesterday; only this one precious moment is important as it unfolds its petals. It positions itself so that it doesn’t crowd the other flowers; they all find their place in the field, quietly growing in silence and peace.

A flower requires rain, but doesn’t hoard the rain it receives; the rain is allowed to fall equally on all the flowers of the field. It trusts that enough rain will come, and if it doesn’t, the flower rests it's fate with all the other flowers.

A flower feels neither hate nor love of its neighbors, only peaceful coexistence, as if the flower is not important enough to even cast judgments such as love or hate. It sees itself as not very significant in the grand scope of things, and perhaps this is why it is so beautiful. It's exuberance is that of an innocent child in the universe, full of hope and trust, unaware even of itself, yet knowing somehow that it can never die.

The fields will always be arrayed with beautiful flowers.

I won’t live long, either, considering how fast a lifetime speeds by . . and I notice the flowers more often now. Who knows, perhaps the time I have left on this earth will be counted in months rather than years . . and I only wish that I could display myself as beautifully as a flower with what time I have left. Too much of my time has been spent saving up the rain, which I no longer need.

My goals in life have been superficial.

The simple, beautiful thing that a flower does so naturally, growing toward the light, I should have done, but I grew toward other things that caught my eye. I wasn’t still enough to notice flowers back then; all I could see was myself. I had so many chances to display myself beautifully, but instead I surrendered to my fears, and greedily pushed others aside as I climbed over them to get the best spot in the field.

But with the time I have left, I will forgo the mindless pursuits of my youth and study the lowly, exalted flower. I will discover its secret, and I will learn to grow toward the light as it does. I will find out how to display myself beautifully so that whomever I encounter, they will go away feeling better than before.

I will dedicate myself to truth, no longer greedy or fearful, or thinking that I am special.

I will trust that the rain will fall,
and that the light will help me grow.

And I will reach beyond my small self that keeps me so ugly and out of step with the vast meadow of life, a vast field of constant renewal that I am beginning to see with new eyes.

I will no longer hate the other flowers;
how could I now ?

This morning, I walked through my garden as usual, but the sunlight on the flowers was different, extraordinarily brilliant.

And suddenly, I realized that the sun was falling on me too. All I had to do was accept its warmth, and accept all things that may come along,

And Trust

Inspirational Quotes and Poetry is with Maeita Mausu.

"Don’t take anything personally.
Nothing others do is because of you.
What others say and do is a projection
of their own reality, their own dream.
When you’...re immune to the opinions
and actions of others, you won’t be
the victim of needless suffering”
