As for lovers, well, they will come and go too. In addition, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you cannot give up because if you give up, you will never find your soul mate, who makes you feel on top of the world. Just because you fail once, does not mean you are going to fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you do not, then who will, sweetie?

Live for an ideal, and leave no place in the mind for anything else. Let us put forth all our energies to acquire that which never fails--our spiritual perfection. If we have true yearning for realization, we must struggle, and through struggle, growth will come. We shall make mistakes, but they may be angels unawares.”

We must learn to move beyond self-contentedness to make room within ourselves for others. When you transcend yourself, the fact will be confirmed, by the quality of your life. We will attain – even if only shortly – a transparency and a radiance of being which results from living both within and beyond yourself. This is the promise and the excitement of self-understanding.”

September 26, 2013 an amazing 5 mile meditative run,”An amazing life is a joyful and happy life. Making one’s life amazing, meaningful, and purposeful completely lies in the hands of an individual. Achievement, growth, serenity of mind are certain factors which largely contribute towards making someone’s life amazing and thrilling. The important thing out here is that life is a precious gift and one should make the most of it.
The art of joyful and happy living spreads the message that each individual is responsible for his own happiness. If one can stay happy alone, then only can he or she emanate that happiness to others around them.
There are no set parameters to define an amazing life. For some, the riches and wealth make life amazing while for some others, it is just the satisfaction and peace of mind that is primarily important and is the key to a happy, fulfilling, and amazing life. However, an amazing life is a life wherein one can realize his dreams and have a sense of satisfaction.”

September 23, 2013 an easy fun adventure 100-mile Georgia Jewel meditative run. In total after getting lost, I end up with a 120 miles while having the best time of my life, I literally ran for 33 hours nonstop, while climbing this beautiful wish I had a camera 1,600 feet of elevation. I learned a lot about self, and the passion that the Georgia Jewel has, to put on an event like this one. Thank you very much for not sleeping, giving me food to eat and smiling at every single aid station, not to mention the extra mile to supply my vegan needs, just for me to run in the bushes and play with nature this weekend, I LOVE YOU GEORGIA JEWEL.
”Being tough is what we all are, because it consist of equal parts persistence and experience in life. When understood in the essence of love, trying to outrun your opponents becomes a wasted energy, because the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head.

"In it all weather you start or finished a 5K, 6K, 10K, 13.1M, 26.2M, 30M, 35M, 50,M,100M you are all my hero’s because” It is not the critic who counts; not the one who points out how the strong stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the one who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust, sweat and mud; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends themselves in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if they fail, at least fail while daring greatly, so that his/her place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

To look at the sunny side of everything, and make your optimism come true. To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble, for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. To think well of yourself, and, to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds. To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

An old young man at heart in Kabati repeated this sentence often... the adage served to remind people to always be on their best behavior and to be good to others. [S]he said that people complain when there is too much sun and it gets unbearably hot, and also when it rains too much or when it is cold. However, no one grumbles when the moon shines. Everyone becomes happy and appreciates the moon in a special way. Children watch their shadows and play in its light, people gather at the square to tell stories and dance through the night. Many happy things happen when the moon shines. These are some of the reasons why we should want to be like the moon.”

You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There cannot be any large-scale revolution until there is a personal revolution, on and individual level. It has to happen inside first. You can take away a man’s political freedom and you will not hurt him- unless you take away his freedom to feel. That can destroy him. That kind of freedom cannot be granted. Nobody can win it for you.”

The more true you will be to yourself, the faster will be the rate at which you will realize your own follies, strengths and weaknesses. People can be true to themselves by analyzing themselves without any bias. A practically sound judgment of oneself can only pave the way to one’s progress and success.
