First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi 

How often does it happen to you: you feel that it’s high time to change something in your life, but you do not understand what exactly it is, and you can’t find any inspiration or motivation for doing it? It would be nice to have someone nearby; the one who would give some advice, help you find your way, write something inspiring, and guide you through every pitfall of your life. It often happens there is no such person in your life; but it does not mean you are completely alone in this world: just apply to spiritual gurus whose mission is to bring life knowledge to people and help them understand real values of our existence; read their writings that contain beautiful lessons to help you understand, find and motivate yourself.

Start your new life right now, do things you always wanted, be the master and architect of your destiny. As for inspiration… It is not difficult to find if you are not afraid of listening to others.

Mahatma Gandhi

  1. Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

  2. You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

  3. It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”

  4. First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.”

  5. Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.”

 

Rajneesh (Osho)

  1. Experience life in all possible ways – good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter. Experience all the dualities. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become.”

  2. Life begins where fear ends.”

  3. Don’t avoid extremes, and don’t choose any one extreme. Remain available to both the polarities – that is the art, the secret of balancing.

  4. Be – don’t try to become. Within these two words – being and becoming, your whole life is contained. Being is enlightenment, becoming is ignorance.”

  5. Friendship is the purest love. It is the highest form of Love where nothing is asked for, no condition, where one simply enjoys giving.”

Dalai Lama

  1. Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”

  2. We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”

  3. When you are discontent, you always want more, more, more. Your desire can never be satisfied. But when you practice contentment, you can say to yourself, ‘Oh yes – I already have everything that I really need.’”

  4. The best way to resolve any problem in the human world is for all sides to sit down and talk.”

  5. Even an animal, if you show genuine affection, gradually trust develops… If you always showing bad face and beating, how can you develop friendship?”


Paolo Coelho

  1. Love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to reach out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if it means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness. The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us.”

  2. When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”

  3. When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive.”

  4. It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.”

  5. Tragedy always brings about radical change in our lives, a change that is associated with the same principle: loss. When faced by any loss, there’s no point in trying to recover what has been; it’s best to take advantage of the large space that opens up before us and fill it with something new.

    It’s only YOU who can change your life, reveal its true mission, find your way, love and happiness. Forget about fear, do not regret about your choices and mistakes, listen to your heart – and your existence will flourish and become full of meaning (at least for you – and this is the most important thing actually).
