The Elements

There’s a difference between surviving and thriving. Make your choice wisely.

Just imagine 

If you breathed the air

Touched the Earth

Ate the sun 

Saw the beauty 

And heard your spirit 

Do you know how strong you would be?

Now, just imagine 

If you breathed every breath, deeply, as if it were your last 

Grasped the earth and felt eternity in every touch

Savored the flavor of the taste of fire 

Saw the magic and beauty of every moment

And heard the spirits and inner voices of all 

There’s a difference between surviving and thriving. Make your choice wisely.

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
