<div> —  Hugh  Prather, <i>Notes on Love and Courage</i> </div><span>“You have such lovely breasts” I said. “Oh but they used to be Higher,” she answered. “They used to stand up like this.” That is the way we kill ourselves. That is the way we die. All day we are waging these little wars against ourselves. The darkness accumulates in our minds like poison.</span>

<div> —  <b><a href="http://www.theglasschild.tumblr.com/tagged/Hugh%20Prather" target="_blank">Hugh Prather</a></b>, <i>Shining Through</i><br> </div><span>Your potential as a healer is limitless. Is it not true that you have something of value to offer? Haven’t you seen some evidence in your life of your potential to give a gift that will gladden the heart of someone else? Haven’t you been kind? Haven’t you uplifted? Haven’t you helped someone at some time not to feel isolated and misunderstood? And is that potential in you not worth your effort to release more fully, and consistently? Your potential is love. And love is of God. To make others happy will do far more than make you happy. It will begin to release the world from pain and turn hell into Heaven.</span>

<div> —  <a href="http://www.theglasschild.tumblr.com/tagged/quotes" target="_blank">Hugh Prather</a>, <i>How to Live in the World and Be Happy</i><br> </div><span>Take the time to look in your heart and be clear. Practice doing each thing in peace. Walk through life being whole. Make your mind your clear, whole, peaceful home. Do not be afraid to admit to yourself how important your mind is to you, and do not be afraid to act this out by pausing as often as needed. The time has come to be very direct. Do you want to be happy? Then you want to have peace. There is nothing more to happiness than this.</span>

<div> —  Hugh Prather   <br> </div><span>I sometimes react to making a mistake as if I have betrayed myself. My fear of making a mistake seems to be based on the hidden assumption that I am potentially perfect and that if I can just be very careful I will not fall from heaven. But a ‘mistake’ is a declaration of the way I am, a jolt to the way I intend, a reminder I am not dealing with the facts. When I have listened to my mistakes I have grown.</span>

There is a time to let things happen and a time to make things happen.

It’s this simple: if I never try anything, I never learn anything.

“It is sometimes said that each of us is ultimately alone. This idea is compelling not because of birth and death, but because so often our moments alone seem more true, more real.  I need solitude like I need food and rest, and like eating and resting, solitude is most healing when it fits the rhythm of my needs.  A rigidly scheduled aloneness does not nourish me. Solitude is perhaps a misnomer.  To me, being alone means togetherness - the re-coming-togetherness of myself and nature, of myself and being, the reuniting of myself with all other selves.  Solitude especially means putting the parts of my mind back together, unifying the pieces of my mind back together, unifying the pieces of myself scattered by anger and fear, until I can once again see that the little things are little and the big things are big."

…One thing has become quite clear: All acquaintances are passing.  Therefore I want to make the most of every contact.  I want to quickly get close to the people I meet because my experience has shown we won’t be together long.___Hugh Prather from Notes to Myself, My Struggle to Become a Person
