...finding Spirit in words - love, love

Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny--he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally--you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.....

Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, 
or any experience that reveals the human spirit. 
e. e. cummings  

Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we have learned here. 
The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts.... 
Marianne Williamson 

 Deep listening is miraculous for both listener and speaker. When someone receives us with open-hearted, non-judging, intensely interested listening, our spirits expand.  
 Sue Patton Thoele

~ Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.   
Helen Keller

 All that spirits desire, spirits attain.   
Kahlil Gibran

Don't wait for it.  Know it's there already don't stop to feel it, move in its flow without thinking. don't test the wind, just lift your wings and leap....
Teresa St. Cloud

Let parents bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit of reverence. 

i want to really really live. i want to laugh til my stomach tightens so much that it aches and my legs hurt from my slapping them. 
i want to cry from my gut and let the tears wash me to where i need to go.
 i want to hear the singing of my heart. and let the sounds echo inside me and i want to dance to that music. 
i want to fill with compassion and touch someone's face so gently that they can feel the caring in my fingertips. i want to love so deeply that my cells vibrate with it and just standing near me you can feel the buzz of the vibrations.
 i want to know that i'm worthy and good and i want to leave self doubt on the highway. 
i want to touch the sky and recognize my soul in it. 
i want to walk in the rain and drop to my knees in gratitude for this gift of life 
i have been given. 
may i never ever forget what a gift it truly is.
Teresa St. Cloud

~ Success is not a place at which one arrives but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey. ~ 
 Alex Noble

There are four questions of value in life... What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love. 
Johnny Depp 

 The artist alone sees spirits. But after he has told of their appearing to him, 
everybody sees them    
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.  
Marianne Williamson

Your first Osho quote. Yes, that's it, the work comes in aligning ourselves wholly to whatever that destiny is and then following that flow.
