May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not always
understand. May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced
give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with
courage and optimism. Always know that there are those whose love and
understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone. May you
discover enough goodness in others to believe in a world of peace. May a kind
word, a reassuring touch, and a warm smile be yours every day of your life, and
may you give these gifts as well as receive them. Remember the sunshine when the
storm seems unending.

Teach love to those who hate, and let that love
embrace you as you go out into the world. May the teachings of those you admire
become part of you, so that you may call upon them. Remember, those whose lives
you have touched and whose have touched yours are always a part of you, even if
the encounters were less than you would have wished. It is the content of the
encounter that is more important than the form.

May you not become too
concerned with material matters, but instead place immeasurable value on the
goodness in your heart. Find time each day to see beauty and love in the world
around you. Realize that each person has limitless abilities, but each of us is
different in our own way. What you feel you lack in the present may become one
of your strengths in the future. May you see your future as one filled with
promise and possibility. Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.
May you find enough inner strength to determine your own worth by yourself, and
not be dependent on another's judgment of your accomplishments. May you always
feel loved.

Great Story:A Carrot, an Egg & a Cup of Coffee

Hearts Animated Pictures, Images and Photos

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.

Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see."

"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.

Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?"

Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

"Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength? Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way...the brightest
future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.

Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

A Place in The World - Mary Chapin Carpenter

A Place in The World - Lyrics

What I'm looking for, after all this time
Keeps me moving forward, trying to find it
Since I learned to walk all I've done is run
Ready, on my mark, doesn't everyone
Need a place in the world

Could be right before your very eyes
Just beyond a door that's open wide
Could be far away or in your own backyard
There are those who say, you can look too hard
For your place in the world

Takes some of us a little longer
A few false starts gonna make you stronger
When I'm sure I've finally found it
Gonna wrap these arms all around it

Could be one more mile, or just one step back
In a lovers smile, down a darkened path
Friends will take our side, enemies will curse us
But to be alive is to know your purpose
It's your place in the world
Your place in the world
Your place in the world

Why Walk When You Can Fly Lyrics

Mary Chapin Carpenter : Why Walk When You Can Fly

In this world there's a whole lot of trouble, baby
In this world there's a whole lot of pain
In this world there's a whole lot of trouble
But a whole lot of ground to gain
Why take when you could be giving, why watch as the world goes by
It's a hard enough life to be living, why walk when you can fly

In this world there's a whole lot of sorrow
In this world there's a whole lot of shame
In this world there's a whole lot of sorrow
And a whole lotta ground to gain
When you spend your whole life wishing, wanting and wondering why
It's a long enough life to be living, why walk when you can fly

In this world there's a whole lot of cold
In this world there's a whole lot of blame
In this world you've a soul for a compass
And a heart for a pair of wings
There's a star on the far horizon, rising bright in an azure sky
For the rest of the time that you're given, why walk when you can fly

Albert Einstein

einstein Pictures, Images and Photos

The development of science and of the creative activities
of the spirit in general requires still another kind of freedom, which may
be characterized as inward freedom. It is this freedom of spirit which consists
in the independence of thought from the restrictions of authoritarian and
social prejudices as well as from unphilosophical routinizing and habit
in general. This inward freedom is an infrequent gift of nature and a worthy
objective for the individual.

..schools may favour such freedom by encouraging independent thought. Only
if outward and inner freedom are constantly and consciously pursued is there
a possibility of spiritual development and perfection and thus of improving
man's outward and inner life.

~Albert Einstein~

Qoutes from The Dalai Lama

dalai lama Pictures, Images and Photos

As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery.
We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.
The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as
anger and attachment, fear and suspicion,
while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility
are the sources of peace and happiness.

Dalai Lama

The whole purpose of religion
is to facilitate love and compassion, patience,
tolerance, humility, forgiveness.

Dalai Lama

Whether one believes in a religion or not,
and whether one believes in rebirth or not,
there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion.

Dalai Lama

Practice for the New Millennium by the Dalai Lama
The Practice:

1. Spend 5 minutes at the beginning of each day remembering
we all want the same things (to be happy and be loved)
and we are all connected to one another.

2. Spend 5 minutes breathing in, cherishing yourself; and, breathing out
cherishing others. If you think about people you have difficulty cherishing,
extend your cherishing to them anyway.

3. During the day extend that attitude to everyone you meet.
Practice cherishing the "simplest" person (clerks, attendants, etc)
or people you dislike.

4. Continue this practice no matter what happens or what anyone does to you.

These thoughts are very simple, inspiring and helpful.
The practice of cherishing can be taken very deeply if done wordlessly,
allowing yourself to feel the love and appreciation that
already exists in your heart.

Be a lamp unto Yourself

Kerosine lamp animated Pictures, Images and Photos

Be a lamp unto Yourself

As the Buddha was dying,
Ananda asked
who would be their teacher after death.
He replied to his disciple -

"Be lamps unto yourselves.
Be refuges unto yourselves.
Take yourself no external refuge.
Hold fast to the truth as a lamp.
Hold fast to the truth as a refuge.
Look not for a refuge in anyone besides yourselves.
And those, Ananda, who either now or after I am dead,
Shall be a lamp unto themselves,
Shall betake themselves as no external refuge,
But holding fast to the truth as their lamp,
Holding fast to the truth as their refuge,
Shall not look for refuge to anyone else besides themselves,
It is they who shall reach to the very topmost height;
But they must be anxious to learn."

Quoted in Joseph Goldstein, The Experience of Insight

Qoutes from the Buddha

A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.

He who experiences the unity of life sees his own Self in all beings, and all beings in his own Self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye.

Live in Joy

Live in Joy, In love,
Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, In health,
Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, In peace,
Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.


There is no fire like greed,
No crime like hatred,
No sorrow like separation,
No sickness like hunger of heart,
And no joy like the joy of freedom.

Health, contentment and trust
Are your greatest possessions,
And freedom your greatest joy.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.

It's surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you're not comfortable within yourself, you can't be comfortable with others.

As you embrace the present
and become one with it, and merge with it,
you will experience a fire, a glow,
a sparkle of ecstasy throbbing in every sentient being.
As you begin to experience this exultation of spirit
in everything that is alive, as you become intimate with it,
joy will be born within you,
and you will drop the terrible burdens of defensiveness,
resentment, and hurtfulness...
then you will become lighthearted, carefree, joyous, and free.

Each of us is here to discover our true Self,,,
that essentially we are spiritual beings
who have taken manifestation in physical form,,,
that we're not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences,,,
that we're spiritual beings that have occasional human experiences.

Deepak Chopra

is to live it,
to taste experience to the utmost,
to reach out eagerly and without fear
for newer and richer experience.

Wisdom Qoutes

Divine Love is not human 'romantic' love. It is of a spiritual nature, it is all-encompassing and unconditional. Divine Love is often attributed only to God and/or spiritual beings. Yet as we are all sparks of the Creator (the Divine), and as the Creator IS LOVE, we are therefore also Love - Divine Love is who we really are, yet in our human state and using mostly only our five senses, we have forgotten this and we perceive other people and animals and nature as 'separate' from ourselves. But we are all made of the same 'stuff' and are all therefore "ONE and all connected. This is confirmed on a scientific level with Quantum Physics.

It is our perception of separateness that causes all the woes we have in this world. What we do to one, we do to ourselves. There is NO separateness, only ONE-NESS.

Teach only Love,
For that is what you are.

~ A Course In Miracles ~

Love is patient and kind,
Love is not jealous, conceited, proud or boastful,
it is not arrogant, selfish, irritable or rude.
Love does not keep a record of wrongs.
Love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth,
Love never gives up, and its faith, hope and patience never fail.
Love is eternal.

~ 1-Corinthians 13:4 ~

Ho'oponopono:A Hawaiian Healing Technique

Ho'oponopono is getting into the state of forgiveness and love, and reaching the state of peace and clarity. Before you manifest anything in your life, you have to be initially in a state of "clear"-ness. And saying the 4 ho'oponopono statements allows you to reach that clear state.

"I love you" - We are allowing ourselves to be open to the love already coming to us.

"I'm sorry" - We are saying sorry for our negative programmed beliefs. You are saying you are sorry for the garbage that's in you, sorry for whatever is causing the bad experience in your life, and you don't have to know what is causing this bad thing.

"Please forgive me" - This is not asking for God's forgiveness, but rather for the forgiveness from yourself. We are already completely loved by God. We are the ones who need to allow it in.

"Thank you" - you are releasing the negativity. You are expressing gratitude.

Ho'oponopono is a Hawaiian word defined in the Pukui and Elbert Hawaiian Dictionary as "Mental cleansing: family conferences in which relationships were set right through prayer, discussion, confession, repentance, and mutual restitution and forgiveness."

The term has been popularized as a form of family or personal therapy.

Some practitioners believe it is an ancient Hawaiian practice. To date, the earliest documentation of a practice called ho'oponopono is from Mary Kawena Pukui, who recorded her experiences and observations from her childhood (born 1895) in her 1958 book. (Handy & Pukui), as well as her scholarly study Nana i ke Kumu [volumes 1 and 2] with psychiatrist Dr. Haertig.

Pukui described it as a practice of extended family members meeting to try to "make right" broken family relations ("making right" is the literal translation of the Hawaiian term). Traditional ho’oponopono sessions include "prayer, discussion, confession, repentance, mutual restitution, and forgiveness." (Cody)

In the 1980s, Morrnah Simeona developed an updated and streamlined version of ho'oponopono that is practiced by the individual alone. Her practice continues to be taught by her students in Hawai'i, as well as the rest of the world. According to Morrnah Simeona, ho'oponopono is a Hawaiian healing process based on the principles of total responsibility, taking responsibility for everyone's actions. She taught if one would take complete responsibility for one's life, then everything one would see, hear, taste, touch, or in any way experience is one's responsibility because it is in one's life. Total Responsibility advocates that everything exists as a projection from inside the human being. The problem isn't with our external reality, it is with ourselves and to change our reality, we would have to change ourselves. This is more a less a simple form of solipsism.

Weekend Qoutes

“A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles without any effort on your part”
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Find thoughts that feel good, because it is inevitable that you are going to always be moving toward something. So why not be moving toward something that is pleasing? You can't cease to vibrate, and Law of Attraction will not stop responding to the vibration that you are offering. So, expansion is inevitable. You provide it, whether you know you do, or not. The only question is, what is the standard of joy that you are demanding for yourself? From your Nonphysical perspective, it's a high, high standard.

Abraham Hicks

We are not onlookers peering into the unified field of separate, objective reality - we are the unified field. We can reach beyond the physical body and extend the influence of intelligence. Every thought you are thinking creates a wave in the unified field. It ripples through all the layers of intellect, mind, senses, and matter, spreading out in wider and wider circles. You are like a light radiating not photons but consciousness. As they radiate, your thoughts have an effect on everything. Your relationship to life is the same as that of one cell to your whole body. One cell can talk to your whole body. One cell can influence your whole body. You can talk to the whole of life - influence the whole of life. The whole of life is as alive as we are. The distinction between 'in here' and 'out there' is a false one - as if the heart disregarded the skin because it was not on the inside."

Deepak Chopra

Video Clips from "The secret" The law of Attraction with Abraham Hicks


I found a really nice educated blog on wordpress and I quoted a post I thought was just paramount and I wanted to share it with my readers.


"Not many people are comfortable with the notion of change. Some people prefer to stay in the status quo and be complacent with what they have. While some other group of people prefer the opposite, always striving to make a difference, a more positive change to what they already have. In other words, they want to become what is usually not becoming of others.

Change is inevitable. Everything we see, feel, touch, hear and taste changes with time. Some more obvious change, other in a much slower pace. But change do happen. With that in mind, how come some people still resist change?"

Video:Love and Happiness

After a While

After a While

After a while you learn
The subtle difference between
Holding a hand and chaining a soul
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesn't always mean security.

And you begin to learn
That kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes ahead
With the grace of a woman
Not the grief of a child

And you learn
To build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow's ground is
Too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way
Of falling down in mid flight

After a while you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much
So you plant your own garden
And decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting
For someone to bring you flowers

And you learn
That you really can endure
That you are really strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn and you learn
With every good bye you learn.

In Loving Memory:Micheal Jackson

Micheal Jackson Pictures, Images and Photos

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)[2] was an American recording artist, entertainer, and businessman. The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene at the age of 11 as a member of The Jackson 5 and began a solo career in 1971 while still a member of the group. Referred to as the "King of Pop" in subsequent years, five of his solo studio albums are among the world's best-selling records: Off the Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995).

In the early 1980s, he became a dominant figure in popular music and the first African-American entertainer to amass a strong crossover following on MTV. The popularity of his music videos airing on MTV, such as "Beat It", "Billie Jean" and Thriller—credited for transforming the music video into an art form and a promotional tool—helped bring the relatively new channel to fame. Videos such as "Black or White" and "Scream" made Jackson an enduring staple on MTV in the 1990s. With stage performances and music videos, Jackson popularized a number of physically complicated dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk. His distinctive musical sound and vocal style influenced many hip hop, pop and contemporary R&B artists.

One of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records—including one for "Most Successful Entertainer of All Time"—13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles in his solo career—more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era—and the sales of over 750 million albums worldwide. Cited as one of the world's most famous men, Jackson's highly publicized personal life, coupled with his successful career, made him a part of popular culture for almost four decades.

That which is striking and beautiful is not always good, but that which is good is always beautiful. ~Ninon de L'Enclos

Sir Isaac Newton’s Third law of motion, the law of reciprocal actions

Sir Isaac Newton’s Third law of motion, the law of reciprocal actions, teaches us that
everything is ruled by cause and effect.

“To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction: or, the
mutual actions of two bodies upon each other are always
equal, and directed to contrary parts.
Whatever draws or presses another is as much drawn or
pressed by that other. If you press a stone with your finger, the finger
is also pressed by the stone. If a horse draws a stone tied to a rope,
the horse (if I may so say) will be equally drawn back towards
the stone; for the distended rope, by the same endeavor to
relax or unbend itself, will draw the horse as much towards
the stone, as it does the stone towards the horse, and will
obstruct the progress of the one as much as it advances that
of the other...This law takes place also in attractions”
“Therefore the force of gravity towards any whole planet arises
from, and is compounded of, the forces of gravity towards all
its parts. Magnetic and electric attractions afford us examples of
this; for all attraction towards the whole arises from the
attractions towards the several parts.”
Sir Isaac Newton’s: Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, Published in Latin,

The Soul

"The soul is simply the spirit of self. It lives within self, nourishes and defines self, and ultimately survives self. Fear and anger are powerful emotions that drive the soul which in turn drives self to action. They can create positive effects even though they are negative emotions. In ancient Rome, the word genius meant spirit of the person. Some of the greatest geniuses of all time like Mozart, Leonardo Da Vinci and Thomas Edison had great souls that helped them realize their visions."

I do not forget the benefits of living wisely.
I understand the rules that I must follow in order
to be a success in life and I submit to them willing
ly. Because of this,my life is prolonged by many years

I will never fail to let love and faithfulness fill me. I bind them

I give my whole heart to trust in the lord. I will not be the fool who balances his life on the brace of human understanding. I am God-inside minded at all times
and never cease to acknowledge his presence to guide me in all that I do.

A white Rose

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

John Boyle O'Reilly. 1844–1890
