Please enjoy some wise words.
TREE THAT SHADED ME
FROM THE RAVAGES OF SUN
WIND AND RAIN THAT MADE ME
FEEL SECURE I THANK THE UNIVERSE FOR
CREATING THE TREES OF THE WORLD TO GIVE US SHELTER
THE GOLDEN AGE
“A new golden age has come and settled upon us” cried the Sayer. The crowd arose as one and demanded ” where is our rightful share of the treasure” In their ignorance and greed, they had images of gold, silver and precious jewels, but in truth the Sayer explained, it was a new age of greater love , understanding and harmony that had come. However, sadly this was not enough and the people turned away with the real treasure undiscovered.
PRACTICE GROWING YOUR LOVE
I would like you to imagine three circles. The first circle is made of brilliant gold. The second circle is made of glowing silver. The third circle is made of shining copper.
Now, I would like you to look to the circles to get an idea of some of the people you may wish to place in each circle. The idea is now to send out feelings and emotions of love, caring and good wishes for all the people in the three circles. What is very important to your own growth and well being is to make a genuine effort to send out these feelings for the benefit of everyone in all the three circles. This is the way to gain the most benefit for everyone including yourself.
None of us can cope all at once with every difficulty that life presents us with. The best way to help ourselves to handle the many different circumstances which arise, is to learn to place all the activities related to each difficulty or challenge into an individual container. I suggest an imaginary box . You can make your box as small or large as you need. In this way you can more easily separate the different aspects of your day to day life, so you are not faced with a huge jumble of problems for which you cannot see any solutions. If you box your similar challenges together they immediately become much easier to see the specific problems and therefore also to see the possible solutions. You can have as many boxes as you need or move your items about from one box to another if you wish.
A NEW WORLD.
We must recognize that change is the constant state of the world, as a matter of fact, it is really the only constant thing in the world. It is very important to make an earnest effort to compromise with new technology. It is impossible to completely ignore the speed of the new world, so we must look for, and utilize those changes which you can use to your benefit and advantage. Minimize your contact with the changes you believe you cannot cope with. Teach yourself to recognize the difference.
Try your very best to make friends with changing technology.
THERE IS NO WAY ALL THIS MODERN TECHNOLOGY IS GOING TO CHANGE THE WAY I LIVE AND WORK.
BRIGHTEN YOUR LIFE.
The Creator of life did not just place colour and form on the earth for no good reason. He gave us bright colours, brilliant shapes and beautiful sounds, both to help all life on the planet reproduce, but also to enable life to be abundant in enjoyment, pleasure, challenges and achievements. Also, to enable us to fulfill our hopes and dreams and the hopes and dreams of our loved ones and other people and the creatures of our planet.
SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE.
No matter what you may think of the shape of your life at present, there are many shapes you can make it take in the future.
If you find yourself living in fear of the future, or in regret of your past life, recall these words from the Creator of all there is. My name is I Am. When you live in the past with many of your regrets for your mistakes and life is difficult, I am not here, my name is not I Was. When you live in the future with all your imagined fears and problems and life is difficult, I am not here, My name is not I Will Be. When you live in the only time you really have, which is this moment and you ask for my help, I AM here. MY name is I AM.
THE LITTLE COPPER COIN.
One copper coin has little value, but a number of copper coins together can become a silver coin. A silver coin and a number of silver coins can become a gold coin which has much greater value again. This principle is active all our lives. One friend can become many friends, one family can become many families and one idea can become many ideas. Never underestimate the power of one to become the power of many.
BRIGHTEN YOUR LIFE.
The Creator of the universe did not place colour and form on the earth for no good reason. He gave us bright colours, brilliant shapes and beautiful sounds, both to help all life on the planet reproduce, but also to enable life to be abundant in enjoyment, pleasure, challenges, and achievements. Also, to enable us to fulfill our hopes and dreams and the hopes and dreams of other people and creatures of the planet.
When our life journey brings us to the edge of our familiar world and we must take another step into the darkness of the unknown, we must believe one of two things will happen. Either we will find something firm to stand upon or we will be taught to fly.
People who are content with mediocre achievements look at the way the world is and say, well that is good enough. People who seek to rise far above mediocre achievements look at the same world and say, good, but not nearly good enough.
On our journey through life, men and women of wisdom should choose friends and companions along the way who are people of integrity, compassion, enthusiasm and loyalty. Also we should value people who have a strong family ethic and are positive about the opportunities and challenges ahead. In other words we should seek to associate, were possible with companions who have high hopes of a fortunate, happy and successful future were we and others experience a better world because of our passage through it.
We each have the responsibility of temporary custody of the planet. During our time here, we should consider it an obligation to pass it forward to the next generation as good as it was or, if possible even better. If we do, future generations will honor us with gratitude and great respect.
WHO IS WILL.
Will is someone who can be very powerful and at other times Will is someone who can be very weak. Sometimes he can make the supreme sacrifice and at other times he can make no sacrifice at all. Will is someone who can display great courage and at other times he can display no courage at all. Will is within us all, he can be brought out at any time or he can be hidden away from our view But do not make the mistake of doubting just how powerful Will really is. He has helped mankind achieve its greatest successes and he has also helped it to achieve some of its darkest deeds. Fortunately for us, Will must do what we request him to do. So make him your very special friend, put him to the test and ask him to do his very best.
Special footnote.= I would like to say that I do not claim that all the sayings above are originals thoughts of mine. Where it is possible I will always attribute sayings to the quoted authors if possible. However I would think it is true to say that due to the fact we have had five to ten thousand years of intelligent oral and then written history, we could rightly assume that everything ever thought of or written down has been thought of or written many, many times over.However it stands to reason that when men or women of fame or fortune make quotes of wise words that these ideas are then attributed to them as original. It is of no matter,wisdom is wisdom and as long as it benefits people we really do not have to concern ourselves who spoke or wrote them.
