Today’s Quotes: Jump up the ladder of personal evolution!

“We waste a lot of time running after people we could have caught by just standing still.”

Mignon McLaughlin, was an American journalist and author.

“Every positive change–every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness–involves a rite of passage. Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception.”

Dan Millman, is an author of fourteen self-help books, currently published in 29 languages, the most famous of which is the semi-autobiographical novel, “Way of the Peaceful Warrior”.

“People talk about the reality of their life as if it is important. And we want you to understand, it’s only the temporary indicator. Do you go to the gas station-your gas gauge is on empty-do you go to the gas station and look at your gas gauge in horror? “How did this happen? Why, why, why did this happen to me?” Do you lay your head on the steering wheel and just sob? “Oh, look what it’s come to. I’m finished. I’ve lived all of this life, and look where I am.” Or do you just fill up?”

    Hi Mastin,

    Although I have heard the name, I wasn’t quite sure who Esther Abraham-Hicks was. So I did some research. I was so disappointed reading the possible scam that she appears to be. I watched a video on her website in which she had a 20 minute conversation with a gentleman seeking an explanation of how her “law of attraction” fit into the horrors of the masses. Esther was great explaining what she believed, but I still didn’t quite trust her authenticity. I was saddened. Trust me, I definitely believe int he Law of Attraction, but to see a quote her from someone who is a possible scam-artist, has thrown me for a loop. I come here for growth and inspiration.
    Any thoughts??

    • I agree…a certain amount of discernment should be utilized whenever reading anything online. Apparently Mastin liked the quote, which is fine. It’s the whole, don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater thing, I guess. As far as I can tell Ms. Hicks is a charlatan and a scam artist. Good for you CDR that you used your powers of discernment and were able to detect the BS level on her. She’s unfortunately one of those people who recycles wisdom of the ancients, presents herself as the channeler of Abraham and rakes in the cash. All the while criticizing and judging her paying audience members. Not, an evolved being!
