Yesterday’s Quotes Are Pertinent for Today and Tomorrow, Ad Infinitum

                            YESTERDAY’S QUOTATIONS ARE PERTINENT

                                        FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW!                                                

 

Here’s a great, great, quote from Lily Tomlin, the actress/comedian, which I just came across in the Book of Angels, by Sophy Burnham:

“Why is it, when we talk to God, we are said to be praying; and when God talks to us, we are said to be schizophrenic?”                 Lily Tomlin

Wow!  So well put, Lily, as my own history will attest!

Here’s another quote in the margins of the same book, which so suit’s the human condition and the causes of what one perceives as Hell or Heaven.

“We are what we think.  All that we are arises with our thought.  With our thoughts we make the world.  Speak and eat with an impure mind and troubles will follow you, as the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart. 

We are what we think.  All that we are arises with our thought.  With our thoughts we make the world. Speak or act  with a pure mind and happiness will follow you as your shadow, unshakable. ”                                                  

                                                                                                  The Dhammapada  

And here’s a beautiful quote I found by the immortal Persian, Jalal ad-Din Mohammad Balkhi, known best as Rumi. I’m using it to open my script, The Candlewick Question, since it is an animated children’s musical, set in Candalaria, a candle universe, where the heroine constantly asks:  “What is the purpose of my wick?”

  “There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.

                                             There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.

                                                                                               You feel it, don’t you?

                                                                                                                                       Rumi 

And here’s something I wrote in my journal at the end of January, 2002, nine whole years ago:

“The Cosmic Secret about life on this Plane of Existence is that it is not about things and wealth and powers.  Having all that does not prove one’s true worth.  Often, the most spiritual among us have nothing at all, or just the essentials, in the way of goods because they don’t pay that much attention to the material side of existence. 

They are happy with the sheer adventure of life and they have that inner secret excitement and pleasure in sharing that great adventure with their Lord.  This is their wealth and it can be had in the lowest dungeon and meanest circumstances, as well as the highest palaces.  But those who only value the crust and glitter on the surface of the world will regularly slough off and find themselves bitter and forlorn.  Dis-admired by themselves, their most important and only audience.”    

                                                                                        Linda Layli, Layli Linda

Unless you have read my book, In Secret Diffusion: The Upper Realm Answers Questions About Earth, you have never heard of Linda Layli, Layli Linda. She is me, my inner clairaudient persona.
