Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Beryl Dov
#1. Transience
I am the perfect chalk art Mona Lisa
dispossessed by summer rain.

I am the fastidious Mandala-offering
swept away by Tibetan monks after prayer.

I am a cloud clinging to a lofty mountain
dissipated by the listless afternoon sun.

I am the American President elect
a fading snapshot of fleeting mass delusions.

I am the victim of temporal pleasure
uprooted by woes without end.

Iam beauty evanescent
withering with each tick of the clock.

I have become all my dreams
which have turned to torments
as they were the smug vanities
of mere flesh and blood. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Tsering Wangmo Dhompa
#2. A young Tibetan child touches his head to the floor before the altar and recites a prayer, and I am led to a moment of contentment. This too is part of our struggle as Tibetans: to remind our children and ourselves that we are Tibetan. #Quote by Tsering Wangmo Dhompa
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Bear Grylls
#3. Breathe. Pause. Move. Pause. Breathe. Pause. Move. Pause.
It is unending.
I heave myself over the final lip and strain to pull myself clear of the edge.
I clear the deep powder snow from in front of my face. I lie there hyperventilating.
Then I clear my mask of the ice that my breath has formed in the freezing air.
I unclip off the rope while still crouching. The line is now clear for Neil to follow up.
I get to my feet and start staggering onward.
I can see this distant cluster of prayer flags semisubmerged in the snow. Gently flapping in the wind, I know that these flags mark the true summit--the place of dreams.
I feel this sudden surge of energy beginning to rise within me.
It is adrenaline coursing around my veins and muscles.
I have never felt so strong--and yet so weak--all at the same time.
Intermittent waves of adrenaline and fatigue come and go as my body struggles to sustain the intensity of these final moments.
I find it strangely ironic that the very last part of this immense climb is so gentle a slope.
A sweeping curve--curling along the crest of the ridge toward the summit.
Thank God.
It feels like the mountain is beckoning me up. For the first time, willing me to climb up onto the roof of the world.
I try to count the steps as I move, but my counting becomes confused.
I am now breathing and gasping like a wild animal in an attempt to devour the oxygen that seeps into my mask.< #Quote by Bear Grylls
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Andrew James Pritchard
#4. Aamir, recalling back to the idyllic days of his college youth, pictured himself once again sitting quietly on a familiar neighbourhood rooftop. He often enjoyed relaxing there, alone or with friends, while watching the colourful fluttering prayer flags on rooftop poles, especially in the warmth of an early evening breeze, as wispy clouds drifted against the jagged Himalayan backdrop. He has oft times wondered, ever since his childhood, if the prayers to the spirits of the dead, flying out from those slowly tattering rags, will ever really be answered. Perhaps it will be in another place, in another time, when we're living another life that we shall finally know. Aamir had calmly thought at the time. He was that sort of philosophical guy. #Quote by Andrew James Pritchard
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Tsering Wangmo Dhompa
#5. Power deities, for all their strength, are very much like humans, They are subjects to periods of despair and are not free from the crippling consequences of emotions, For over two decades Tibetans were forbidden from holding any religious ceremonies or prayers. No prayer flags, incense or ceremonies were offered to the deities and demi-gods of the region. This neglect broke their hearts and they became bedraggled and weak. #Quote by Tsering Wangmo Dhompa
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Rich Lowry
#6. A flag doesn't cause someone to sit in a prayer meeting for an hour, and then stand up and shoot people. #Quote by Rich Lowry
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Gabriel Cohen
#7. the Tibetan word for prayer translates as 'wish path. #Quote by Gabriel Cohen
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Beryl Dov
#8. Lhasa
The sage blue sky awakens before the earth
which slumbers a bit longer to still the chill of her bones
and dream until the sun peeks hot through her cragged peaks
bestirring weary monks to the swirl of their yak butter tea.

Monks meditate upon this whorl which echoes the birth
of galaxies, the twist of DNA, the curlicue of hair at the back
of an infant's head, eddying clockwise like Buddha's journey,
winding like a prayer wheel, in the resonance ofinterconnection.

Bells tinkle, bowls sing, incense suffuses hints of heaven,
rainbows of Jingfan prayer flags clap wildly in the wind,
waving me to my quest, to surge forward, to trek to higher
and higher ground -- to the rarefied air that is my mind. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Philip K. Dick
#9. He saw two stars collapse against one another and a nova form; it flared up and then, as he watched, it began to die out. He saw it turn from a furiously blazing ring into a dim core of dead iron and then he saw it cool into darkness. More stars cooled with it; he saw the force of entropy, the method of the Destroyer of Forms, retract the stars into dull reddish coals and then into dust-like silence. A shroud of thermal energy hung uniformly over the world,
over this strange and little world for which he had no love or use.

It's dying, he realized. The universe. The thermal haze spread on and on until it became only a disturbance, nothing more; the sky glowed weakly with it and then flickered. Even the uniform thermal disbursement was expiring. How strange and goddamn awful, he thought. He got to his feet, moved a step toward the door.
And there, on his feet, he died.

They found him an hour later. Seth Morley stood with his wife at the far end of the knot of people jammed into the small room and said to himself, "to keep him from helping with the prayer". "The same force that shut down the transmitter," Ignatz Thugg said. "They knew; they knew if he phrased the prayer it would go through. Even without the relay." He looked gray and frightened. All of them did, Seth Morley noticed. Their faces, in the light of the room, had a leaden, stone-like cast. Like, he thought, thousand-year-old idols.
Time, he thought, is shutting down around us. It #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by John Shelby Spong
#10. Some people think prayer is telling God what to do. I don't think that's the case. #Quote by John Shelby Spong
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Bob Hartley
#11. I dreamed there would be a time to come together to "build out the Hope Reformation that would bring certain shifts to the leaders in the Body of Christ." In this dream, I saw the buildings of revival and prayer and there was some divine activity that was good and needed and foundational for what God was doing on the earth. #Quote by Bob Hartley
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Euginia Herlihy
#12. God wants us to call unto Him in prayer because his ear is not deaf to hear our cry. #Quote by Euginia Herlihy
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Pope Francis
#13. Without prolonged moments of adoration, of prayerful encounter with the word, of sincere conversation with the Lord, our work easily becomes meaningless; we lose energy as a result of weariness and difficulties, and our fervor dies out. The Church urgently needs the deep breath of prayer, and to my great joy groups devoted to prayer and intercession, the prayerful reading of God's word and the perpetual adoration of the Eucharist are growing at every level of ecclesial life. #Quote by Pope Francis
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Keith Miller
#14. Prayer no longer seems like an activity to me; it has become the continuing language of the relationship I believe God designed to fulfill a human life. #Quote by Keith Miller
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#15. Whatever our calling, regardless of our fears or anxieties, let us pray and then go and do. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Charles Brent
#16. There is no chasm in society that cannot be firmly and permanently bridged by intercession; there is no feud or dislike that cannot be healed by the same exercise of love. #Quote by Charles Brent
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#17. This wasn't prayer anyway, it was just argument with the gods.
Prayer, he suspected as he hoisted himself up and turned for the door, was putting one foot in front of the other. Moving all the same. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Priscilla Shirer
#18. Prayer Releases All Your Eternal Resources #Quote by Priscilla Shirer
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by David Platt
#19. My prayer is that people will see that following Jesus costs you everything you are and everything you have. And my prayer is that people will see that Jesus is worth it. #Quote by David Platt
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by David Shibley
#20. The purpose of revival is to fire the church with divine energy for her divine assignment. Revival will tear us away from our temporal pursuits to give ourselves for what really matters.Revival will not occur without prayer. Prevailing prayer is always antecedent to revival. #Quote by David Shibley
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Paul Asay
#21. Submitting to Christ isn't a one-time thing, say a prayer, get dunked, and that's the end of it. For some of us, we must remember to submit every day, every hour... sometimes every minute. Otherwise it's easy to forget that our lives are not our own. #Quote by Paul Asay
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Monica Johnson
#22. Some churches make intercessory prayer part of their weekly schedule. If that's not the case at your church, find another person in the faith to intercede with or go before God on your own. #Quote by Monica Johnson
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Anne Lamott
#23. My belief is that when you're telling the truth, you're close to God. If you say to God, "I am exhausted and depressed beyond words, and I don't like You at all right now, and I recoil from most people who believe in You," that might be the most honest thing you've ever said. If you told me you had said to God, "It is all hopeless, and I don't have a clue if You exist, but I could use a hand," it would almost bring tears to my eyes, tears of pride in you, for the courage it takes to get real-really real. It would make me want to sit next to you at the dinner table.

So prayer is our sometimes real selves trying to communicate with the Real, with Truth, with the Light. It is us reaching out to be heard, hoping to be found by a light and warmth in the world, instead of darkness and cold. Even mushrooms respond to light - I suppose they blink their mushroomy eyes, like the rest of us.

Light reveals us to ourselves, which is not always so great if you find yourself in a big disgusting mess, possibly of your own creation. But like sunflowers we turn toward light. Light warms, and in most cases it draws us to itself. And in this light, we can see beyond our modest receptors, to what is way beyond us, and deep inside. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#24. But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise on your lips. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Pope Pius XII
#25. Feeding the birds is also a form of prayer. #Quote by Pope Pius XII
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Bill Johnson
#26. The biggest enemy to prayer is praying for something you already have. #Quote by Bill Johnson
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Lee Strobel
#27. Often it is hard. So hard, in fact, that Jesus' decree to love and pray for our opponents is regarded as one of the most breathtaking and gut-wrenching challenges of his entire Sermon on the Mount, a speech renowned for its outrageous claims. There was no record of any other spiritual leader ever having articulated such a clear-cut, unambiguous command for people to express compassion to those who are actively working against their best interests. #Quote by Lee Strobel
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
#28. Ein einziger dankbarer Gedanke gen Himmel ist das vollkommenste Gebet. One single grateful thought raised to heaven is the most perfect prayer. #Quote by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Thomas Merton
#29. The simplicity that all this presupposes is not easy to attain. I find that my life constantly threatens to become complex and divisive. A life of prayer is basically a very simple life. This simplicity, however, is the result of asceticism and effort: it is not a spontaneous simplicity. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Andrew Zolli
#30. Eight weeks of practice in meditation, even with those with no previous experience, was enough reconfigure the brains of participants. The gray matter which fuels worry shrank, and the area associated with healthy thought awareness group. #Quote by Andrew Zolli
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Jay Leno
#31. Michele Bachmann told reporters that she will lead the nation in prayer if she is elected president. You know if she is elected president, we all better be praying. She doesn't have to lead us. #Quote by Jay Leno
Tibetan Prayer Flags quotes by Ole Hallesby
#32. As white snowflakes fall quietly and thickly on a winter day, answers to prayer will settle down upon you at every step you take, even to your dying day. The story of your life will be the story of prayer and answers to prayer. #Quote by Ole Hallesby
