Morning Morsel

Life is a series of collisions with the future; it is not the sum of what we have been, but what we yearn to be.

Jose Ortega y Gasset whose greatest Philosophy was his famous maxim "Yo soy yo y mi circunstancia" ("I am I and my circumstance")

Accepting Happiness

The one who is truly happy knows the importance of accepting happiness in their lives as much as he knows how to give happiness to others.

In order to be fully happy, it is important not to take sorrow from situations or people. Usually we pay attention not to give sorrow but it is now equally important to just take happiness from whatever happens.

Today, take the thought in your mind that you will just give happiness and take happiness from each and every person you meet.

Think of something nice to say to every person you meet. Then you will find that you are constantly happy because you are not expecting from them but you are giving.

Lies in the Sand

Here is a man, who says there is a light in the sky.

All my friends say he's telling a lie.

But he speaks with such passion that I have to think about.

And his hands ... well they tremble as he points it out.

But I can't see what it's all about

And the voices of many are singing along it seems.

Is it all something new? And will I see it too?

Or is this just continuing man?

Throughout all history claiming they all can see, but the evidence falters just short of my hand.

And there are lies in the sand.

Lies in the Sand

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Love and light is the way.

Release all that doesn't demonstrate love. Accept all forms of light.

Simply Saturday

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Mahatma Gandhi

Have you been silent enough to find your path?

Prone to Criticize

Why is it that we are prone to criticize?

It seems it is the 'difference between others' that brings on criticism.

The things that we are so finely tuned into will cause noticing of a difference in others.

Think about this...

If one is a musician with a finely tuned ear will find it very hard to listen to music that is played poorly.

A person with a finely tuned ear for music and he can tell if one note is missed.

If one is a good cook their taste will be finely tuned to their opinion of 'good' taste and foods that do not reach that standard might not be pleasant for them.

A teacher of English and Literature might find it difficult to read my blog posts.

A neat and organized person might find it difficult to someone who was not.

A fast walker might find it difficult to walk with one who is not.

A fast talker might find it difficult to listen to a slow talker.

It is the 'difference' that seems to matter.

Do we really want a world where everyone is alike? Which side of the fence are we viewing people in our lives? Does prejudice of being different play a part in the way we view things?

Find your way

Whether or not you find your own way, you're bound to find some way.

If you happen to find my way, please return it, as it was lost years ago. I imagine by now it's quite rusty.
