What’s in an orange?

“What comes out of an orange when you squeeze it? Orange juice. Why? Because that is what is inside. When you get squeezed – that is, when someone applies pressure on you – what comes out? Stress? Anger? Hatred? Fear? Frustration? Is it because of your boss? Never. Is it because of your mother? Your children? What comes out of you is always what is inside.  It has nothing to do with the rest of the world. How does it get there? Only as you think.”

Wayne Dyer

 

Skipping

“If you had everything in the material world (ambition, power, money), would that bring you happiness? 

Go back in time when you got something you really wanted. Were you happy? How long did it last?

You can be happy without anything achieved through ambition. So why not skip that step and just be joyous?”

-Byron Katie
