Donna Goddard

The worst place is at the fork. You can’t keep going the same direction as you came. You have to choose one or other path. Whatever the choice, at least, it is movement. Otherwise, you are just forking around getting nowhere.

Donna Goddard

The last useless battle; someone will fall. Useless but useful, for nothing, for All.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

We can learn to use the pain in our relationships to transform us thereby turning them into entities which heal not harm.

By Anonym 18 Sep

Donna Goddard

Sometimes, to protect a secret we will say it so openly that most will not suspect the truth of what we are saying.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Donna Goddard

Above all, I wish to see.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

The more we veer away from our true nature, the more unhappy we feel. When we align with our better self, we feel happy and content again.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

The path is paved with consistent, conscious mental and spiritual alertness and the gradual growth of goodness in our heart and clarity in our mind. We are awake. If we keep trying to understand, we will understand. If we keep telling ourselves that we are loved by Life and if we keep looking for evidence of that love, we will find it.

Donna Goddard

Love is to free, not to imprison.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

Don’t have a goal in mind when it comes to people. Your value is the love you share with the world. That love will always draw to you what you need. Remain faithful to the spirit you see in others and you will save them a thousand years of tears.

Donna Goddard

What wills to grow, will grow. What wills to flow, will flow.

By Anonym 18 Sep

Donna Goddard

Some people’s words stay inside us and have the power to change us and other people’s words are powerless, no matter how intelligent they may sound.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Donna Goddard

Do not assume that someone else’s ego can love you. It cannot. It does not even love the person it resides in. The limit of the ego’s 'love' is to decide that you are a temporary ally and thus it will protect you for the benefit of its own use. Only a soul can accept and return love. Everything else is manipulation. Fragile arrangements. They are, at best, suspicious and, at worst, vicious.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

It could be said that we become so much a stranger that we disappear and find ourselves reborn in the midst of humanity which is quite a paradox.

By Anonym 18 Sep

Donna Goddard

The expression of Life neither originates within a single human nor belongs to that person exclusively. Life is energy and, as such, it belongs to all.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

Don’t feed the drama monster. It’s insatiable and has no friends.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

It is not possible to be seduced by the lure of ego-gratification or intimidated by the tyranny of imposters when we know that we are as the angels. We are loved beyond comprehension. So, we must claim our rightful inheritance and live with the confidence of protection.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Donna Goddard

Beautiful things come together one stitch at a time.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

It is the light of love which connects us to others. We answer the call of love. It comes from God and touches our soul.

By Anonym 18 Sep

Donna Goddard

The learning opportunities of togetherness are not only practical but precious for us all.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

It is a great honour to be human. Humans have the capacity to freely choose their destiny and, one day, they will all choose the right destiny.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

I felt acutely grateful to everyone, everywhere, who does their best by giving what they have to give, no matter what issues they are facing in their own lives.

By Anonym 20 Sep

Donna Goddard

When we give our attention and love to anything in life, it is a significant offering. We only have so much time. What we spend it on and who we give it to will determine the course of our life.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

To find the great Love, we must, one way or another, die the great death.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

It is only when we are far enough along to realise the sorry state that most people are in that we lose our concern with what other people think.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

It is warmer here. Can you see the light? Trust it. It is safe. It has lived a long time. It has seen much more than you. You fight a demon that you once knew but the demon is already slain. And from the corner of your eye you will see the scattered, sacred fire reform again. Settle, settle. Peace, peace

By Anonym 17 Sep

Donna Goddard

Love is its own reward. We do not have to worry about what other people think about us. We can never feel alone or isolated when we understand that it is impossible for love to leave our side. Love is all around us.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

Those who view you as detrimental to their own causes will see you as an enemy, no matter what you think of them. Whatever damage they think they can get away with, they will do. The more the ego wants something, the more vicious it can become. If it is not vicious immediately, it will simply be biding time. Everyone who has come to Earth has chosen the ego and must learn, quickly or slowly, its worthlessness and its venom.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

We do not get to Heaven alone.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

There is an aid for helping us to learn how to distinguish between the ego way and the higher way. It is pain. The ego way inevitably leads to pain, even if it seems to temporarily satisfy. The higher way does not. It works. And it works harmoniously. It brings the sort of success that has no bitter after-taste. It is not manipulative. It doesn’t play one person against another. It doesn’t feed anyone’s fantasies. It is honest and it protects the good.

By Anonym 18 Sep

Donna Goddard

Our thoughts and prayers have so much power. If people realised this, they would be much more careful where they let their thoughts drift.

Young dancers have a beautiful, strong, flexible, and resilient body. And they have the fire of hope in their heart. However, the fire can be a bit feral like a young alley cat. It can go everywhere, in all directions, willy-nilly. It can turn all claws and spitting or it can get nervous and run away. It pretends things that aren’t true and is afraid of showing what is true. The older cat bides his time. He has patience. He pulls the fire inside and lets it smoulder. He doesn’t waste his energy on fights not worth the battle or where the casualties would be greater than the goal. He owns his failures like scars that say it would be wise to take him seriously. He is not ashamed of his loves. He values his spirit and lets it grow. It’s in the eyes. The body may move less but it has presence and a power of a different sort. It is authentic.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Donna Goddard

All of creation wants to create through you. You are not your body and you are not in your body. Your body is in Life. Use it until you need it no more and then you will be happy to release it.

By Anonym 20 Sep

Donna Goddard

When the body is in its rightful mode, it is silent. We feel neither well nor sick, healthy nor unhealthy. The body becomes the quiet, perfectly functioning tool by which God uses us in this life. Your body can be well just as easily as sick. Your life can be harmonious and glad just as easily as it can be tormented and dramatic. Choose carefully. And if you have chosen unfortunately then choose again.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

We should respect other people’s decisions, even if they seem bad ones to us. Perhaps, we are wrong. Perhaps, we are not wrong but the decision is necessary for the person’s growth.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Donna Goddard

Do not be afraid of love or the course it will take. There is no certainty in life. Choose love first and choose love last and it will give you more than you ever give it.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

We make people special to us, believing that they can save us. When one thing doesn’t work, we look somewhere else to be saved. We rarely question the concept, itself. Sometimes, we don’t look to another person to save us but to money, acknowledgement, a title, a cause, a notion of ourselves. None of it can save us. We travel the path in different ways; some are polite, some are ruthless, some are clever, some are instinctive. In the end, it all leads to the same despairing place. In the unsuspecting quiet moments, there it is; a sense of peace and a feeling that everything is fine without searching for anything to be saved by.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

We draw into our life those who will help us to grow. Naturally, we tend to have mixed feelings about those very people but they are marked for us. We have forgotten that we wrote them an invitation some time ago. We look at them as if they are intruders when all along they are our guests.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Donna Goddard

Good fiction writers have an instinctive understanding of human nature. That's what makes stories and characters captivating. Good spiritual writers share what they sincerely practice themselves.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

True forgiveness totally alters our perception. It sees the spiritual truth and loses sight of the alternatives. Our ego refuses to do this because its main food is remembering the wrongdoings against us even if they are entirely fabricated. To choose to see a different reality leaves the ego no room. It is the healing space. It is the beautiful space. It is the space of love and happiness.

By Anonym 20 Sep

Donna Goddard

You can turn every ugly and damaging drama into a genuine blessing by seeing it differently. No one is suffering on purpose. We learn to give up the pleasure we feel in self-righteously blaming others. Healing happens when we see things differently. The question is: do you want suffering or peace? It's that simple.

Donna Goddard

The road is certain for anyone who ventures near it.

By Anonym 20 Sep

Donna Goddard

You have to stay out of the game. It’s deadly and no one ever wins. Everyone is a loser. Even seeming wins are short-lived and have the taste of bitterness mixed in with the satisfaction of personal gain. The ego is exclusive by nature. While the spirit seeks to include, the ego is unashamedly manipulative in its culling of people. The intention of self-aggrandisement is barely even covered over. The soul does not see people in terms of what it can gain. It seeks to share. It seeks to create by extension of its own and others’ true nature. The ego is extremely changeable. It has no stability. Constantly guarding against attack and looking out for its own advantage, its perceptions and thus feelings towards others are ever-shifting. This creates unhappiness. The more we veer away from our true nature, the more unhappy we feel. When we align with our better self, we feel happy again. And so the process continues until the spaces between happiness are not as long and arduous. The presence or absence of personal peace is our barometer. It will guide us even if we are not sure of the way.

Relationships are valuable for healing and learning how to love.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Donna Goddard

There is a great deal of fantasy in real life and real in fantasy.

By Anonym 17 Sep

Donna Goddard

Love isn’t a spell. Not if it’s the sort of love that wakes us up. Then it’s a spell-breaker, not a spell-maker.

By Anonym 18 Sep

Donna Goddard

Relationships are constantly changing. They have to be dealt with every day anew. They are not constant, unchanging entities. You have to pay attention. If things take a turn for the worse then it is painful but it’s a chance to see things differently, a chance to see more. So that is a helpful pain.

By Anonym 20 Sep

Donna Goddard

When we share our naked bodies, our financial future, the range of our good and bad emotions, our dearest dreams, our most painful memories, our trembling fears, our fragile hopes, and our sweetest joys then a relationship cannot be anything other than a uniquely powerful opportunity.
