"Only the present is real. Only this moment is real. Nothing real can be dissolved. If something is real, it cannot be destroyed; it will remain. And it will remain whatsoever you do. Only unreal things can be dissolved. They can disappear, they can simply evaporate into nowhere, into nothingness."
Osho --- Submitted by S. Heighwaya --- United Kingdom
I love this, partly because it echoes the Course in Miracles, which says.. Only love is real. Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Also, I heard once that anything that can be lost was never really/truly yours anyway. I feel that the present moment and love are all we've really got and all that we can't ever really lose.

"Keep praying but be thankful that God's answers are wiser than your prayers."
William Culbertson
June 23, 2004
I asked God for strength that I might achieve.
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health that I might do greater things.
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
I asked for riches that I might be happy.
I was given poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for power that I might have the praise of men.
I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am, among all men, most richly blessed.

"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the full light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day what you choose, what you think, and what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny -- it is the light that guides your way."
