“Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.”

“All the things that truly matter, beauty, love, creativity, joy and inner peace arise from beyond the mind.”

“All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.”

“Always say 'yes' to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now?

Surrender to what is. Say 'yes' to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”

More quotes by Dolores Cannon

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”

“Take a moment to enjoy the present moment.”

“The moment you become aware of the ego in you, it is strictly speaking no longer the ego, but just an old, conditioned mind-pattern. Ego implies unawareness. Awareness and ego cannot coexist.”

“The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, person and family history, belief systems, and often nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.”

“The past has no power over the present moment.”

“This, too, will pass.”

“To love is to recognize yourself in another.”

“To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad.

It seems almost paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life, the outer forms, tend to improve greatly. Things, people, or conditions that you thought you needed for your happiness now come to you with no struggle or effort on your part, and you are free to enjoy and appreciate them – while they last.

All those things, of course, will still pass away, cycles will come and go, but with dependency gone there is no fear of loss anymore. Life flows with ease.”

“What you react to in others, you strengthen in yourself.”

“Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.”

“Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and what you resist, persists.”

“When you accept what is, every moment is the best moment. That is enlightenment.”

“When you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life.

It means fear is no longer a dominant factor in what you do and no longer prevents you from taking action to initiate change.”

“Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose.”

“First, make sure you get into a relationship for the right reasons. Most people still enter relationships for the 'wrong' reasons – to end loneliness, fill a gap, bring themselves love, or someone to love—and those are some of the better reasons.

Others do so to salve their ego, end their depressions, improve their sex life, recover from a previous relationship, or, believe it or not, to relieve boredom. None of these reasons will work, and unless something dramatic changes along the way, neither will the relationship.”
