10 Quotes From Dan Millman’s The Peaceful Warrior To Bring You Happiness Today

1) “There is no need to search; achievement leads to nowhere. It makes no difference at all, so just be happy now! Love is the only reality of the world, because it is all One, you see. And the only laws are paradox, humor and change. There is no problem, never was, and never will be. Release your struggle, let go of your mind, throw away your concerns, and relax into the world. No need to resist life, just do your best. Open your eyes and see that you are far more than you imagine. You are the world, you are the universe; you are yourself and everyone else, too! It’s all the marvelous Play of God. Wake up, regain your humor. Don’t worry, just be happy. You are already free!” 

2) “Reality never matched their dreams; happiness was just around the corner — a corner they never turned. And the source of it all was the human mind.”

3) “Sometimes sorrow, sometimes joy. But beneath it all remember the innate perfection of your life unfolding. That is the secret of unreasonable happiness.” 

4) “And so I awoke to reality, free of any meaning or any search. What could there possibly be to search for? All of Socrate’s words had come alive with my death. This was the paradox of it all, the humor of it all, and the great change. All searches, all achievements, all goals, were equally enjoyable, and equally unnecessary.” 

5) “Act happy, be happy, without a reason in the world. Then you can love, and do what you will.”

6) “The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”

7) “‘What do I do then, now? Where do I go from here?’ Dan asked Socrates.

‘Who cares?’ He yelled gleefully.  ‘A fool is ‘happy’ when his cravings are satisfied. A warrior is happy without reason.  That’s what makes happiness the ultimate discipline—above all else I have taught you.’”

8) “Stay in the present. You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.  The warrior is here, now. Your sorrow, your fear & anger, regret & guilt, your envy and plans and cravings live only in the past, or in the future.”

9) “Like most people, you’ve been taught to gather information from outside yourself; from books, magazines, experts.  Like this car, you open up and let the facts pour in.  Sometimes the information is premium and sometimes it’s low octane.  You buy your knowledge at the current market rates, much like you buy gasoline.  Like this gas tank, you are overflowing with preconceptions; full of useless knowledge.  You hold many facts and opinions, yet know little of yourself.  Before you can learn, you’ll have to first empty your tank.

10) “Wake up! If you knew for certain that you had a terminal illness – if you had precious little time left to make use of your life and consider who you are, you’d not waste time on self-indulgence or fear, lethargy or ambition.  You do have a terminal illness – it is death. Be happy now, without reason – or you never will be at all.”

The JOY Of Missing Out

Most people exist and never truly live.

The funny thing is, at some point in your life you’ll realize, if you ever had FOMO, that you weren’t missing out on anything important.

Most people never Truly live – most are only spectators – watching others live & commenting on other peoples’ lives…

Most exist, but never live.

Do you need other people to enjoy life? Or can you enjoy life with yourself first? 

If you don’t enjoy spending time with yourself, do you think others will?

Love yourself first.

Look within before you look without.

The important question is: “Are you a spectator in life or are you a participant?” 

“Are you merely watching other people live their life? Or do you have any life of your own within you?”

Enjoy time you have with yourself – it’s some of the most important time you’ll ever have in this life.

2022 Revelations

I never thought I was Jesus before Los Angeles, & I’m still not sure…what I do know for sure is that I am definitely a messenger, & what I’m sharing is all true.

—There is a Lord, God, who sees all & knows all, truly, including your thoughts.

—I’ve been meeting supposedly dead people & they are in different bodies.

&I have been meeting celebrities who are supposedly still alive & in different bodies – they can change bodies.

— I have been speaking with an invisible God for most of my life, at least the past 10-20 years, every single day.

—I found out this past year in Los Angeles, not only God our Lord was listening, but thousands, possibly millions of other beings were listening to me speak with God.

It is a bit creepy knowing there are many beings watching & listening, without permission, other than God who obviously has permission – it’s God. But others who are watching & listening, it’s time for you all to learn about boundaries. Yes, we are one, & yes, the wicked & evil get cut off from this connection, & the Temple of God, which is us all, will grow healthier every day. Because that’s what this connection must be, it’s God. & it’s time for a huge cleanse, everywhere.

Everything new, truly.

—All the above, True.

— I’m looking to Jesus in the Bible every day & putting into practice Jesus’s teachings – to love, to not judge or you will be judged, to forgive & you will be forgiven, & everything else that Jesus taught. I have not perfected all his teachings within my life, but that is the Aim, & should be the Aim of all Christians who say they believe in God. & now I know for sure, it’s beyond belief now, because I know. I believed by faith, & now, I know.

& the one thing I did fail at in my past life was with lust – there was a lot of that within me & I have repented – I was also on a good amount of drugs & alcohol during that time, & I’m also done with those destructive poisons – although I have a few drinks on occasion. (My neck pain is part of the price I pay for my usage of drugs & alcohol for years & not sleeping well for years. I do pray for a professional masseuse in the future to help with my neck.)

There truly is a big cleanse happening everywhere.

The Bible says the Lord disciplines those He loves, so I am thankful.

Thank you God.

A Million Dreams

A Million Dreams…

This great song by Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, and Ziv Zaifman expresses dreams of a new world.

A new world that we are creating, together. All the time.

Every day we are creating reality – our reality, which contributes to the collective reality.

What are you contributing?

Here are a couple posts I’ve written about dreaming, to help you begin:

The Power of The Dream

Your Dreams Are Yours

& here is the beginning lyrics of the song A Million Dreams🎶

“I close my eyes and I can see,

The world that’s waiting up for me

That I call my own

Through the dark, through the door

Through where no one’s been before,

But it feels like home…

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy,

They can say, they can say I’ve lost my mind,

I don’t care, I don’t care, so call me crazy,

We can live in a world that we design…

‘Cause every night I lie in bed,

The brightest colours fill my head,

A million dreams are keeping me awake..

I think of what the world could be,

A vision of the one I see,

A million dreams is all it’s gonna take..

Oh a million dreams for the world we’re gonna make…”

I prefer Pink’s version, here.

Know Your Why

Why are you doing what you are doing?

Are you just staying busy or are you actually being productive?

And more importantly, what is it that you actually want to do?

What dreams do you have?

And how are you achieving them?

There is a big difference between being busy and being productive.

And we all have experienced both.

What’s important is what you do Today.

Know your why and then take action.

Persevere

“Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.” 
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

You lost the game.

You won it next week.

You fell down.

You got back up.

You’ve been hated.

You’ve been loved.

Why is it easier for people to cling to the negative?

It could be, like Tupac said, that “fear is stronger than love.”

Or it could be the result of societies current dogmas.

Societies change, history shows us this, but it always begins at an individual level.

You may have been defeated once, or even hundreds of times, but life is not done with you yet.

Don’t confuse a single defeat with a final defeat. 

Persevere.

Patience

“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”
– Aristotle


Where are you going?

What’s the rush?

Sometimes a sense of urgency is necessary, and sometimes it’s not.

And sometimes we’re all so busy rushing around that we forget the joy in this moment.

Take a deep breath.

Be here, now.

And from here, you can go anywhere.

Do It Today

“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
– Lao Tzu


What dream do you have?

Are you taking actions towards your dream?

What is one thing you can do today to begin turning dreams into reality?

It won’t happen overnight, but it won’t happen until you first have the dream.
