The stress and strains of our always-connected lives can sometimes take us off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what works for others in the hopes that you can find out what works for yourself. Whether it's photos that relax you or make you smile, songs that bring you back to your heart, quotes or poems that balance you or meditative exercises that help de-stress you, we all have tricks that we use when we get bent out of shape. We encourage you to look at the GPS Guide below, visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and harmony.

  • "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there." -Rumi

  • "This is my prayer to thee, my lord- strike, strike at the root of need in my heart. Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows. Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service. Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might- Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifle. And give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy will with love." -Rabindranath Tagore

  • "When you set sail for Ithaca, wish for the road to be long, full of adventures, full of knowledge." -Cavafy

  • "i thank You God for most this amazing day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes" -e.e. cummings

  • "Ask your soul! Your soul will not blame you for having cared too little about politics, for having exerted yourself too little, hated your enemies too little, or too little fortified your frontiers. But she will perhaps blame you for so often having feared and fled from her demands, for never having had time to give her, your youngest and fairest child, no time to play with her, no time to listen to your song, for often having sold her for money, betrayed her for advancement.... You will be neurotic and a foe to life - so says your soul - if you neglect me, and you will be destroyed if you do not turn to me with a wholly new love and concern.'" -Herman Hesse

  • "When you are doing something that you love, there is a river running through you. A joy." -Rumi

  • "To feel the intimacy of brothers is a marvelous thing in life. To feel the love of people whom we love is a fire that feeds our life. But to feel the affection that comes from those whom we do not know, from those unknown to us, who are watching over our sleep and solitude, over our dangers and weaknesses- that is something still greater, and more beautiful, because it widens out the boundaries of our being and unites all living things." -Pablo Neruda
