Publishing Guidelines:

These are some notes (“inspirational”) I have jotted down over the years; so sharing some thoughts of “the spiritual journey”, which may be included in a new “work”, “a labour of love”. Just “planting, sowing and watering, some seeds” (not my unkept garden)… and hope they may be of interest…and uplifting to you too. These quotes, thoughts (as with all my articles) may be freely published, electronically or in print.

“We share what we know, so that we all may grow.”

INTRODUCTORY COMMENTS: Here are some short thoughts from my notes (in point form), that I’ve collected over the years (not stamps or bottle-tops). I hope that these thoughts may be helpful, uplifting and perhaps even inspirational to you in your spiritual growth.

These are some of my favourite quotations (many from authors unknown), that daily inspire me, so am sharing. Enjoy…

“Failure doesn’t mean that I have failed. It just means that I haven’t succeeded… YET!

“Every problem has a spiritual solution.”

We can choose to do the highest good for the greatest number (ALL??) people.”

Nelson Mandela once said: “To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

“We learn far more from our tears than our laughter.”

“Keep true to the dreams of your youth.” – Friedrich Schiller, German philosopher and writer

“Try not to become a man* of success, but a person of value” – Einstein *

I guess he meant both men and women there!

“Beyond success to significance.”

“The principles you live by create the world you live in.”

“Nothing can kill an idea in which the light of truth is burning.”

“Live simply, so that others may simply live.” – Mahatma (Mohandas) Gandhi

“We can all be great, because we can all serve.” – Mother Theresa (and Martin Luther King)

“You, your life is the dream.”

You make a living from what you get; you make a life from what you give.

“The great lift the human spirit to be more than it is.”

“If I must choose between righteousness and peace, I choose righteousness.” – Franklin D Roosevelt

“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” – Mahatma Gandhi (and Lance Armstrong)

“Let your spirit shine through these words”

“Embrace the light …within.”

“In the midst of darkness, light exists.”

“A darkness, that we will illuminate with our hearts.”

“The peace of the brave is within reach. We are still reaching.” – Bill Clinton (at the signing of the peace agreement between Israel’s Prime Minister, Yatzik Rabin and Yasser Arafat, leader of the PLO on the lawn of the White House in 1993)

“Let us reach for the world that ought to be, that spark of the divine that stil stirs in each of our souls.” – the words of US President Barack Obama in accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo

About craig lock

from http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig_lock.html About the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. https://www.createspace.com/3779691/ and http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his life’s savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season.".

  11. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and fascinating, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is some thing that not sufficient men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m extremely pleased that I discovered this throughout my search for something regarding this.
