Dear Readers, the following is Part II of some of the incredible quotes that have carried me through the last five years.
The names following the quotes are links.
The following quote is often a powerful reminder whenever I find myself becoming rigid within any particular belief.
"No truth is so sublime but it may be trivial tomorrow. People wish to be settled; Only as far as they are unsettled is there any hope for them." -Ralph Waldo Emerson.
The following quotes have the capability to knock my internal control freak out of business and put me back on the road to joyful surrender.
"Nature will not have us fret and fume. Our painful labors are unnecessary and fruitless. Only in our easy, simple, spontaneous action are we strong. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Speculation is the source of all suffering." -Thom Knoles
"Established in being, perform action." -Bahagavad Gita.
For me the above quote reminds me to release speculation, meditate, locate charm, and perform spontaneous right action.
"Nothing heals like pain." -Wade Robson
I find that us humans tend to unfortunately not make needed changes until the pain becomes so unbearable that we feel we no longer have a choice. Pain has softened me. Pain has humbled me. Pain has enabled me to know and feel joy.
Whenever I feel overwhelmed by the task ahead.
"The journey of a thousand miles commenced with a single step." -Lao Tzu
The first time I read the following quote, tears immediately fell from my eyes.
"We cannot give our children what we donʻt have." Brene Brown from The Gifts of Imperfection.
I think my reaction was a combination of fear that I did not possess, and hope that I could achieve the embodiment of self-fulfillment, I deeply wish for my son. I know I canʻt give him self-fulfillment, but I hope to be a good model.
To help snap me out of not paying attention.
"The universe is not short on wake-up calls. Weʻre just quick to hit the snooze button." -Brene Brown from The Gifts of Imperfection.
The following quote helps to rid me of the fear of taking a new leap into the unknown. A reminder that 24/7, 365, there is nothing going on but evolution.
"No heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.” -The Alchemist
I was 8 years old. My Mother, Sister and I were days away from moving to Los Angeles, California from Brisbane, Australia. Amidst a nervous breakdown, my Dad took me aside in the kitchen, looked me in the eyes and repeated to me several times...
"There is nothing you have to do." -Dennis Robson (Dad)
This quote came back into my consciousness early on in the healing process, post disclosing the sexual abuse I suffered at the hands of Michael Jackson. These words from my Father have mobilized me amidst many moments of paralyzing fear and imagined pressure.
I have such deep gratitude for the teachers that I have had access to. I hope some of these quotes benefit you as well in your journey to live your highest life.

Part III of my healing journey from silence and depression, to finding my voice and expanding my light.Read More
Dear readers, due to my travels, “BREAK TO HEAL, Part III,” will not be ready to publish until next Friday, December 8. In the meantime, I thought I would offer a short document containing some of the powerful quotes that have carried me through the last five years.
I originally heard the following quote via Brene Brown’s TED talk which played a distinct role in inspiring me to first disclose my child sexual abuse.
“We cannot selectively numb emotions, when we numb the painful emotions, we also numb the positive emotions.” -Brené Brown, from “The Gifts of Imperfection.”
I came out of Yoga class and the following quote was staring at me from a card at the reception desk. It knocked me over. I bought the card.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” -Anais Nin
The following three quotes came to me via my life changing therapist (2012 to 2013) in Los Angeles, CA.
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” -Helen Keller
The following quote helped me in releasing my white knuckled grip on the entertainment business and opening my heart and mind to a new life.
“When one door closes, another opens: but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” -Alexander Graham Bell
The following quote was on the side table next to my therapist's couch, staring at me, every time my mind was running rampant with fearful speculation.
“I’ve lived through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.” -Mark Twain
The following quote is from a book that is never far from my side.
“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.” -Eckart Tolle, from “A New Earth.”
The following quote found me soon after the news of my lawsuit against Michael Jackson’s Estate and entities broke in the media. It has inspired me to keep moving forward many times.
“All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.” -Arthur Schopenhauer
I continue to come back to the following quote whenever I feel discouraged about the pace of my emotional, behavioral and/or spiritual progress.
“If you keep feeling a point that has been sharpened, the point cannot long preserve its sharpness.” -Lao Tzu, from “Tao Te Ching.”
Love, Wade Robson.
