We have to teach ourselves how to make room for them, to love them, and to live, really live." - Anna Quindlen

"In some ways, acknowledging mortality is liberating. Kris Allen's popular lyric offers the hope that 'I wish you can live life like you know you're dying.' Every moment is more precious when you know it could be your last. Every experience is more intense when you're aware that it might never again be repeated." - Rabbi Benjamin Blech
Rabbi Benjamin Blech is a professor of Talmud at Yeshiva University and the Rabbi Emeritus of Young Israel of Oceanside which he served for 37 years and from which he retired to pursue his interests in writing and lecturing around the globe. He is also the author of 12 highly acclaimed books, including 'Understanding Judaism: The basics of Deed and Creed', 'If God is Good, Why is the World So Bad?' and the international best-seller, 'The Sistine Secrets'.

[Quote No.41356] Need Area: Fun > Experiences
"[Experiences - try to make the most of each moment and opportunity:] While researching the saying, 'This too shall pass away' as an example of eternal, timeless, ever applicable wisdom, I was struck by the idea that I knew another phrase that met the same criteria that this phrase was famous for doing, namely, as 'a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations' with the 'ability to make the happy [and proud] man [or woman], sad [and humble] and the sad man [or woman], happy [and hopeful]'. Let me explain:--- In 1852, the English poet Edward Fitzgerald included, unattributed, in his collection 'Polonius: A Collection of Wise Saws and Modern Instances', a version of a many-told tale, entitled 'Solomon's Seal'. It described a sultan requesting from King Solomon a sentence that would always be true in good times or bad; Solomon responded, 'This too will pass away'. This phrase and story had been recorded in many cultures over thousands of years, including Jewish, Arabic and Turkish folklore, to make the point that neither good nor bad lasts for ever and that 'all things are temporary'. The phrase seems to have originated in the writings of the medieval Persian Sufi poets, and is often attached to a fable of a great king who is humbled by the simple words. Some versions of the fable, beginning with that of Attar of Nishapur, add the detail that the phrase is inscribed on a ring, which therefore has the ability to make the happy man, sad and the sad man, happy. On September 30, 1859, Abraham Lincoln included a story similar to both Fitgerald's and the Sufi poet's criteria, in an address before the Wisconsin State Agricultural Society in Milwaukee: "It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: 'And this, too, shall pass away.' How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!" -- So the criteria that this phrase 'This too shall pass away' was famous for again was as, from Fitzgerald, 'a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations' with, from the Sufi poets, the 'ability to make the happy [and proud] man [and woman], sad [and humble] and the sad man [or woman], happy [and hopeful]'. The other phrase that I thought would meet the same criteria is 'It could be worse or better.' This is true and appropriate in any and all times and situations, because 'all things are relative, as well as temporary.' It also has the 'ability to make the happy [and proud] man [or woman], sad [and humble]' - because whatever he or she is happy or proud about 'could be better and may become worse' - and the 'ability to make...the sad man [or woman], happy [and hopeful]' - because whatever he or she is sad about 'could be worse and may become better'. I particularly like the phrase 'It could be worse' because it is always true and it makes me grateful and happy, all the time. I also like the phrase 'It could be better' because it too is always true and it helps me enjoy my past achievements and satisfactions with humility rather than excessive pride and then set goals in the future that I can anticipate hopefully, all the time. The phrase 'This too shall pass away', which is always true, helps me try to make the most of each moment and opportunity for they are fleeting and I will not live for ever and it helps me to persist through challenges as they can't last unchanged for ever. I hope you find these phrases that encapsulate the eternal truth that 'all things are relative and temporary' as helpful as I have." - Ben O'Grady

[Quote No.42917] Need Area: Fun > Experiences
"[When you are relaxing...] Let the world be as it is and learn to rock with the waves [focusing on enjoying the experience]." - Joseph Campbell
(1904 – 1987), American professor, writer, and orator best known for his work in the fields of comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience. Campbell's seminal work, ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’ (1949), discusses what Campbell called the monomyth — the cycle of the journey of the hero — a term that he borrowed directly from Joyce's ‘Finnegans Wake’. His work, ‘The Masks of God’, written between 1962 and 1968, in four-volumes covers mythology from around the world, from ancient to modern. Where ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’ focused on the commonality of mythology (the ‘elementary ideas’), ‘The Masks of God’ books focus upon historical and cultural variations the monomyth takes on (the ‘folk ideas’). In other words, where ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’ draws perhaps more from psychology, ‘The Masks of God’ books draw more from anthropology and history. The four volumes of ‘The Masks of God’ are as follows: ‘Primitive Mythology’, ‘Oriental Mythology’, ‘Occidental Mythology’, and ‘Creative Mythology’. At the time of his death, Campbell was in the midst of working upon a large-format, lavishly illustrated series entitled ‘Historical Atlas of World Mythology’. This series was to build on Campbell’s idea, first presented in ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’, that myth evolves over time through four stages: -1- ‘The Way of the Animal Powers’—the myths of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers which focus on shamanism and animal totems; -2- ‘The Way of the Seeded Earth’—the myths of Neolithic, agrarian cultures which focus upon a mother goddess and associated fertility rites; -3- ‘The Way of the Celestial Lights’—the myths of Bronze Age city-states with pantheons of gods ruling from the heavens, led by a masculine god-king, and; -4- ‘The Way of Man’—religion and philosophy as it developed after the Axial Age (c. 6th century BC), in which the mythic imagery of previous eras was made consciously metaphorical, reinterpreted as referring to psycho-spiritual, not literal-historical, matters. This transition is evident in the East in Buddhism, Vedanta, and philosophical Taoism; and in the West in the Mystery Cults, Platonism, Christianity and Gnosticism. Other well-known works of his are ‘Myths to Live By’ (1972), ‘Pathways to Bliss: Mythology and Personal Transformation’ (2004) and ‘A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living’ (1991). Quote from his book, ‘Reflections on the Art of Living’.
