I posted this and was politely told it was removed because I posted a topic thread before I was supposed to. So, I hope this is allowed now.



This was a quote I read on my homeroom teachers desk that I think was by Confucius, I have done a search to try and find it but to no avail. If anyone knows who the author was, please, tell me. Either way it left me with a very great impression at a time in my life when I needed it most. In my sophomore year I was forced to leave school at an early time to go to a drug program. When I came back for my junior year I was asked to go to a different school. I was glad to do so, but this quote was sitting on the teacher's desk the very first day at my new school and it gave me the courage to move forward and not let my mistakes from the previous year interfere with my new school. I took the quote to heart and try to live by these same words every day. I just wanted to share with others.

Do you have a favorite quote to share? Or have you your own words of wisdom?

I have 2 quotes that I have written of my own that say the same thing essentially:

1) Life is like a bowl of cherries with the pits in them, You have to eat the sweet part and spit out the pits!

2) Every negative has a positive, Every positive has a negative, It's up to us to see them and use them!


Please, feel free to share!

Sincerely,

" The Only Real Mistake In Life, Is One Which You Learn Nothing From"


I really like this one. I think I'll file it away in my list of "quotes that define my philosophy".


But this is a quote that really reaches into my soul, grasps me by the figurative lapels, and shoves my face into the heart of truth like a bucket of ice cold water revealing the nature of our reality.


“It is more important to know where you are going than to get there quickly. Do not mistake activity for achievement. Remember that there is nothing stable in human affairs, therefore avoid undue elation in prosperity or undue depression in adversity.” - Isocrates


If there is anything to learn here on ATS, it is this. Keep Isocrates' words in mind.

Very few adults learn the lessen the first time around. It must be repeated until the individual can get his head around it, see the message clearly and how it relates to the bigger picture. My experience, while teaching adults showed that five reviews of the same thing, is what it took to get the point across. It is not that adults are stupid but rather their ability to learn is far inferior to children and inversely proportional to their age. Most lessens in life simply go over our heads because we lack the consciousness development to appreciate what is going down. Whatever we can fathom, incorporate into our being and use to further grow, takes about 20,000 years in 3D; that's a lot of lives. The mission for everybody is the same; grow your aura or,if you wish, raise your frequency; help others as part of your routine life and finally create love, in families, community groups and of course, the work place. When our bodies won't work anymore, we get a time out to review all of our past lives and get to decide, completely without fear being allowed to enter, what we want to do next. To be sure we will be back in 3D because that is where the newly sentient souls and the recalcitrant souls, learn the basics before moving on to 4D. You can always tell souls that are about to move to 4D because there is a white halo around their head. The halo is caused by neutrons being given off as light energy but that's another story. We are given all the tools we need and are protected and nurtured, all through our climb up the consciousness ladder. All is well and always will be. Peace is our normal state.
