#4. “Life is the force that makes the transformation of energy possible.”

#5. “By resisting the transformation of Life, humans create the illusion of death; we suffer from every ‘loss’ again and again.”

#6. “Nothing is ours to keep, including our physical body. Knowing this, we surrender to the angel of death and accept the transformation of Life.”

#11. “When your attention is in the present, you aren’t carrying the burdens of the past.”

#12. “Attachment helps you to live your life intensely in the present moment. With attachment you can increase your desire to accomplish whatever you want to accomplish, and with detachment, you don’t have to suffer what you didn’t accomplish. You simply let go.”

#16. “Where we choose to put our attention is what creates the miracle.”

#23. “The emotions that drain you are the emotions that come from fear; the emotions that give you more energy are those that come from love.”

#24. “To save energy you need to change your routines, change those agreements, and no longer react with those emotions.”

#25. “You are not free to be who you really are because you are trapped by images of what you think you should be.”

#26. “What you believe you are is a distorted image of yourself that came from other people- from mirrors that always distort images. As soon as you agree, the image is programmed in your memory, and now you believe this is what you are.”

#27. “Whatever you learn is alive. The image that you have of yourself is alive, and it lives in your mind. That image is not you, but it will use everything it perceives to justify its own existence. It is not you, but it is eating you alive and destroying your happiness.”

#28. “Humans are creators, but our power of creation is invested in our beliefs.”
