"If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one to share the beauty of the stars with, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the JOY of each other, the JOY of challenge, the JOY of growth."
-- Mitsugi Saotome

The word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some
superhuman accomplishment, and the ego likes to keep
it that way, but it is simply your natural state of felt oneness
with Being. It is a state of connectedness with something
immeasurable and indestructible, something that, almost
paradoxically, is essentially you and yet is much greater
than you. It is finding your true nature beyond name and form.

~ Eckhart Tolle

I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.”
Walter Anderson quotes

It would be wonderful to be able to do this. Sometimes it's easier said than done though, especially in extreme situations.
