I have a divine “I am” within me, living side by side with my mortal “I am.” I tend to get lost in the illusion that I am purely mortal, and that the concept of divine refers to something other than me. There is no “other” - “other” is an illusion. There is only oneness. Together, my divine self and my mortal self make up my wholeness.
— Mark Mincolla, “Whole Health” (via meditationsinwonderland)
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
— ― Leo Buscaglia (via psych-quotes)
