Peace

“As long as you feed the chaos, the chaos will continue to feed on you!”


 

 

Love

"Love changes everything, allowing all sentient beings to deeply and truly recognize the unicity, and oneness, of all life.  Love is the one great unifier in our conscious lives, and real truth can be experienced in that single moment of recognition."

 

"When evil presses down on love (loving kindness/compassion), it only serves in spreading it out.  In fact, much like a grape being stepped on, it forces the spreading and/or expression outwards of love.  All things that are pressed down upon make the effort to go where the resistance is lessened and, as a result, when love is depressed, pushed down upon, it expresses itself outwards significantly/more rapidly than, maybe, it had initially intended to; more people experience it, learn of it, feel, side with it, and generally are influenced, impacted, and affected by that; look at Jesus, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and the Pakistani woman leader, etc. - these people's message has an almost explosive nature to their mission.  No matter how evil tries to squash love, it cannot; love persists and imparts/influences even more people."

 

"Judgment is the primary distractor of love."

 

 

Persistence

"When one's heart is aligned, without question, all things are possible."

 

"When passion meets productivity, . . . you have success!"

"Truth resides within love; as long as love is the emotional front runner, truth resides.  The moment any other emotion is leading the way, problems can arise; for example:  you say things in a way intentionally NOT to hurt someone, but in the process, say it in a way that is less than completely honest and this is not love, it's mercy - even compassion - nevertheless, it's not love and so messages can be lost.  Please don't miss my message - it's true, mercy and compassion do live in love, but they alone are not love and to use them in place of love [?] is wrong - use them appropriately not in place of love."

"We were born to evolve into the people we want to become."

"When we are full, we cannot be filled; and when we are empty, . . . we are already full."

“It’s not real [unconditional]love if you are saying, ‘I love and respect this person, but . . . ; . . . except; . . .’”

“The practice of deep listening – without interruption or judgement, but instead for sincere understanding – is the very foundation of seeking and knowing the real truth of life.”

“Doing the right thing is not always easy, but doing the right thing . . . is always the right thing!

“Truth is, man may never know, but we should never stop trying.”

"We focus on the body, but we are not the body; we focus on the mind, but we are not the mind; we focus on fears also and we are not that either."  [But what are we?  Unfinished thought]

 

 

P.J.'s Thoughts and Quotes (part 2 - may relate to taijutsu/letters to the Varela family):

{C}·     {C}"Who you are depends solely on where your mind is - guard it with your life!"

{C}·     {C}"To cherish something, or someone, means you must be present - and I don't necessarily mean in its, or their, presence."

{C}·     {C}"To cherish means to recognize something, or someone's, inherent value to you in that moment, and appreciate it, or them - preferably in their fullness and splendor - but, at least, in part!"

{C}·     {C}"We often think of appreciation as receiving - and it is - but the real appreciation is simultaneously giving; who have you (cherished and) appreciated or given to today?  Yesterday?  Who will you cherish and appreciate, or give to, tomorrow?"

{C}·     {C}"Writing and talking can be good, but listening is infinitely better; as with all things, they have their use and benefits.  It may be important to recognize (or to note) writing and talking fill - and, as such, they are the sacred masculine creative force; and listening reflects the universe, in fact, all of creation, and it's profoundly open and empty state.  Without emptiness, openness, receptiveness - nothing can be created!  Listening mirrors the great and sacred feminine."

{C}·     {C}"Truth is silent."

{C}·     {C}"Don’t be a slave, least of all, to your own mind!"

{C}·     {C}"The only way to defeat an angry man is to bring enough humility for both of you."

{C}·     {C}"Learn to breathe in emptiness and practice nothingness (being nothing), and only then will you truly become free - only then will you come alive (or recognize your oneness), and only then will you realize and become everything, . . . including God and the uni-verse."

{C}·     {C}"If you live for yourself, you live for no one, but instead if you live for every sentient being, every beating heart, then you live for everyone and only then do you become valuable - but never do you have value when you have one heart - only when you have One Heart!

{C}·     {C}"Cut an enemy down with your heart, not your hand - fore it is love, not your sword, that wins the war - understand this deeply!"

{C}·     {C}"Marshall, anger could bring down the dojo - defeating your greatest enemy, however, will ensure you always have a dojo - I beg you do not test this, but instead, trust me.  Understand this, and go to war now!"
