We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.

“Even though we've changed
and we're all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when
the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each
other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will
ever change so much to the point where we're not all still friends.”

because you were not created for pleasure:
you were created for joy.

And if you do not know the difference
between pleasure and joy
you have not yet begun to live."

ONLY ONE PERSON can GIVE you what you want, even if what you want would seem to have to come from others... approval, respect, love, a pay raise, abundance, a new career, health, whatever...

Good thing that person is so POWERFUL, INFINITE & LOVING, and it's a good thing that person is YOU.

You've
got to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you've
got, and remember what you had. Always forgive, but never forget. Learn
from mistakes, but never regret.

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.

PARADOX OF OUR TIME
-by B. Moorehead.

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings,
but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.

We spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy it less.

We have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences,
but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge,
but less judgment; more experts, but more problems; more medicine,
but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too
little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late,
get up too tired, read too seldom, watch TV too much, and pray too
seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life; we've added years
to life, not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and
back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.

We've conquered outer space, but not inner space.

We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up
the air, but polluted the soul. We've split the atom, but not our
prejudice. We write more, but learn less.

We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not
to wait. We build more computers to hold more information to produce
more copies than ever, but have less communication.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, and
short character; steep profits, and shallow relationships.

These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare; more leisure,
but
less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.

These are days of two incomes, but more divorce; of fancier houses,
but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers,
throw-away morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills
that do everything from cheer to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in
the stockroom.

I like that one Thistle...............

There are times when it is hard to believe in the future, when we are temporarily just not brave enough. When this happens, concentrate on the present. Cultivate le petit bonheur (the little happiness) until courage returns. Look forward to the beauty of the next moment, the next hour, the promise of a good meal, sleep, a book, a movie, the likelihood that tonight the stars will shine and tomorrow the sun will shine. Sink roots into the present until the strength grows to think about tomorrow.

To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.

What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places – and there are so many – where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.

And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.

Daring as it is to investigate the unknown,

even more so it is to question the known.

Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks
degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

A couple were transferring jobs and had to move towns.
As they approached their new town, they spotted a farmer leaning on his gate.

They stopped, wound down the window and the wife asked, "Please sir, hate to trouble you, please tell us, what are the people like in this town?"

The farmer thought for a minute, "what were the people like where you just left?"

"Oh they were wonderful caring people, we loved them, hated to leave them"

"Well," said the farmer, "that's how they will be here".

A week later, another couple were in the same predicament.

Same farmer, same gate.

"Hey grockle, what are the plebs like in this dump?"

The farmer thought for a minute "what were the people like where you just left?"

"Arrogant pigs, we hated them, couldn't wait to leave the opinionated dross"

"Well," said the farmer, "that's how they will be here !!!".
