Daily Inspirational Quote for July 21

“If you propose to speak, always ask yourself, is it true, is it necessary, is it kind?”

We’re all guilty, at one time or another, of speaking or commenting without firstly engaging our brain first aren’t we? I’m sure I’m not alone in this. It would really serve us well to think carefully before allowing what is in our head to pass our lips because once it’s said, it can’t be unsaid. No matter how much you protest and try to explain you didn’t mean it, it came out all wrong, they’ve taken it the wrong way, etc. etc., it’s out there and could have consequences or repercussions that may reverberate down the tunnel of time. So, my friends, the next time you are tempted to let it “all out”, ask yourself the above three questions first….. If the answer is no, keep it zipped so to speak or rather, don’t speak!

Daily Inspirational Quote for July 20

”Spirituality is a personal relationship with the Divine. Religion is crowd control.”

I only came across this quote recently and I must admit it did strike a chord. It really made me think more deeply about Spirituality and Religion. I have always believed that there is “something”, a higher power if you like, that inspires and challenges us all. However, I also believe that we are all entitled to our own individual, personal belief, which should be respected by everybody who knows us. To me that is Spirituality. On the other hand, I have found “Religion” to be the result of somebody else’s interpretation of how we should behave and think, and does not tolerate (however much it professes to) any deviation from its teaching. I dislike the hypocrisy involved. I will continue to live my life as spiritually as I can, as individually as I can, but that’s just me, what about you?

Daily Inspirational Quote for July 19

“The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.”

This really resonates with me on a personal level. When I find that I am beginning to feel overloaded with whatever is going on in my life, the only thing that always invigorates and restores me, is either a nice amble in the countryside or, even better, time spent at the seashore. Fortunately, we live only a 10 minute walk away from the sea so how great is that? I believe that nothing can restore the human spirit more than spending time in the great outdoors, away from houses, cars, crowds, etc. Our spirit thrives on being “free” from the restraints of modern life and takes on new life and vigour from being allowed to commune with the very basics necessary to sustain life.
