I am currently rebuilding the site with a richer interface and more sidebar content.
More photos, videos, and inspirations coming soon.
The challenge is Blogger and the template system. I am considering moving this site to a WordPress platform.
"When you can allow people to express their Light their own way, to fulfill their destiny and walk the path to the drummer they hear, then you are, in essence, doing the same thing God does -- allowing them the freedom of their expression."
"I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and in thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world."
"Prejudiced thinking comes from treating your mind like a rental space for the thoughts and beliefs of others. Learning to furnish your mind with your personal interpretation, even for a moment, frees you to know yourself and others through your higher self."
"Two seeds lay side by side in the fertile spring soil. The first seed said, "I want to grow! I want to send my roots deep into the soil beneath me, and thrust my sprouts through the earth's crust above me . . . I want to unfurl my tender buds like banners to announce the arrival of spring. I want to feel the warmth of the sun on my face and the blessing of the morning dew on my petals!" And so she grew.
The second seed said, "I am afraid. If I send my roots into the ground below, I don't know what I will encounter in the dark. If I push my way through the hard soil above me I may damage my delicate sprouts . . . what if I let my buds open and a snail tries to eat them? And if I were to open my blossoms, a small child may pull me from the ground. No, it is much better for me to wait until it is safe." And so she waited.
A yard hen scratching around in the early spring ground for food found the waiting seed and promptly ate it."
Moral Of The Story: Those of us who refuse to risk and grow get swallowed by life.
"Life, at its best, is a flowing, changing process in which nothing is fixed. I find I am at my best when I can let the flow of my experience carry me, in a direction which appears to be forward, toward a goal of which I am but dimly aware. In thus floating with the complex stream of my experiencing and in trying to understand its ever-changing complexity, it should be evident that there are no fixed points. When I am thus able to be in the process, it is clear that there can be no closed system of beliefs, no unchanging set of principles that I hold. Life is guide by a changing of and interpretation of my experience. It is always in process of becoming."
"One night a man came to our house and told me, "There is a family with eight children. They have not eaten for days," I took some food and l went. When I finally came to the family, I saw the faces of those little children disfigured by hunger. There was no sorrow or sadness in their faces, just the deep pain of hunger. I gave the rice to the mother. She divided it in two,and went out, carrying half the rice with her. When she came back, I asked her, "Where did you go?" She gave me this simple answer, "To my neighbors-they are hungry also." I was not surprised that she gave - because poor people are generous. But I was surprised that she knew they were hungry. As a rule, when we are suffering, we are so focused on ourselves we have no time for others."
"To laugh often and love much; To win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; To earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, a redeemed social condition; To have played and laughed with enthusiasm and exaltation; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.... This is to have succeeded."
