Mike Dooley is a New York Times Bestselling author, speaker, and entrepreneur in the philosophical New Thought movement. Below are some lovely quotes that make me smile and I hope they have the same effect on whoever reads them.
“In the beginning, the price of giving great love is risking that it won’t be returned. Until you understand, of course, that great love is always returned. With interest.”
“Two people may suffer the same disappointment, one might be saddened, the other understanding.
Two people may receive the same insult, one might be hurt, and the other compassionate.
Two people may have the same disagreement, one might be angered, the other feel love.
How you react to circumstances, people and things, IS A CHOICE, YOUR CHOICE… based on YOUR use of compassion, understanding and love.”
“I know what it’s like. I’ve seen it played out a zillion times. You’re waiting for that magical day when someone makes the connection and recognizes who you really are. Maybe they’ll first catch the sparkle in your eye. Or perhaps they’ll marvel at your insights and the depth of your spirit. Someone who will help you connect the dots, believe in yourself, and make sense of it all. Someone who will understand you, approve of you, and unhesitatingly give you a leg up so that life can pluck your ready, ripened self from the branch of magnificence. Well, I’m here to tell you, your wait is over. That someone, is you.”
“Sometimes, when things take longer than you thought they would, it’s just a gentle reminder from your greater self that you have more time than you thought, and that there’s a journey to enjoy.”
“Step number one for changing the entire world is falling in love with it as it already is. The same is true for changing yourself.”
