My Favorite Quotes/ Mantras!

We all have a few quotes/ mantras that we live our lives by. I would love to learn about your favorite quote or mantra and why?


Here are a few of mine and the reasons why...
"This too shall pass, it always does."
This quote speaks volumes to me because at first read, many of us assume that it is referring to just the negative times in our lives, but in actuality, this quote refers to ALL things passing. So be sure that good times as well as bad times in our lives, all end and are replaced by the opposite.
This reminds me to always be grateful and hopeful because no matter what I am in experiencing in the moment, this too shall pass, it always does.


"What goes around, comes around."
This is a very simple yet powerful statement that beautifully sums up the universal law of karma. The bible says, "Do unto others, as you want others to do to you." This quote takes it a step further and says that whether you want to or not, how you treat others, will come back to how you are treated.


"Service is the rent we pay for our lives."
I'm not sure who the author is for this profound statement but it's one that drives all that I do. I truly believe that we are all so blessed simply because we are granted life. And since we are able to live, we must "pay it forward." We must serve others in whatever capacity we can. It might be as a volunteer teaching children or helping the elderly. But service can also be just smiling to a stranger to help brighten their day.
These 3 are my top favorites! I'd love to know what your favorite quotes/ mantras are and why?  Please do share.


From one Sufi to another,
Love and Light,

  1. Life is the movie you see through your own eyes. It makes little difference what's happening out there. It's how you take it that counts.

    - Denis Waitley

    If you can combine the passion you feel with a forceful attitude, you can transform a difficult situation into something wonderful.
