Quotes from the talk on Right Intention

Here are some of the poems and quotes I read last night:

Choose Your Choices Wisely

Life doesn’t come ready-made;
You create it
With every choice you make.
Choose your choices wisely.
Wise ones are your sunshine,
Foolish ones are your shadow.
Don’t make any choices
You can’t live with.
Some choices aren’t easy.
Make the best one you can,
Hope for the best,
Let it go.
Trust whatever happens
Is for the best
Because you did your best.
Sometimes you make the
Wrong choice.
Don’t worry about it;
Often, it leads to the right one.
Happiness isn’t in the past
But in the choices of today.
It’s not in never making a mistake,
But in never letting a mistake
Keep you from happiness.
Choices give you the freedom
To choose whatever makes you happiest.
Make the most of this freedom
To make the most of your life.
Life is a gift
But happiness is a choice.
Choose it today,
Choose it everyday,
And no day
Will be without sunshine…….

Nancye Sims

“When we pay attention to the intention to bring more happiness into our lives, we are more likely to notice the actions, opportunities, people and things that can bring that about for us.  It’s sort of like recognizing which piece of a jigsaw puzzle will fit in the picture.” — James Baraz and Shoshana Alexander

Promise Yourself

Promise yourself to be so strong
that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends
feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best
and expect only the best.
To be enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to
greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticise others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger,
too strong for fear and too happy
to permit the presence of trouble.

Christian D. Larson
