Hi Everyone! This morning I reblogged Ron and Alexandra Seigel's Monday
post: 'Musings: On Happiness & Befriending Who We Are.' There is a saying
that if you throw a stone into the water it ripples. I believe that is a nice
analogy of ActiveRain -- we learn from one another --we also 'ripple.' The
Seigel's post increased my interest in the following authors' lives and quotes.
I am grateful for members of Active Rain who take time and share. Jane
Have a feeling the Seigels would love hearing from those who enjoyed their

"Choice is creation. To choose is to create. Through my choices I create my
reality. At every moment in my life I have a choice. Moments add up to a
lifetime; choices add up to a life. What kind of life do I want for myself? What
choices will create this kind of life?" ~Tal Ben-Shahar
"Don't ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come
alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who
have come alive. -- ~Tal Ben-Shahar
"I can go through life as a victim, blaming others for my misfortunes, and
experiencing frustration over my condition. Or I can choose to be an active
agent and do what I can do to bring about a positive change in my life."
"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it,
and join the dance." ~Alan Wilson Watts
"Every intelligent individual wants to know what makes him tick, and yet
is at once fascinated and frustrated by the fact that oneself is the most
difficult of all things to know."
~Alan Wilson Watts
"You are the sky. Everything else -- it's just the weather."
"The most difficult times for many of us are the ones we give ourselves."
"Enlightenment is ego's ultimate disappointment."
"When you experience your wisdom and the power of things as they are,
together, as one, then you have access to tremendous vision and power in the
world, you find that you are inherently connected to your own being.
That is discovering magic." ~Chögyam Trungpa
"Our own life has to be our message."
~Thich Nhat Hanh
