I had forgotten this song, suddenly wanted to hear it again first thing this morning, and think its lyrics are far better than any I could write, so far as 'getting it together' is concerned when it comes to the way we see ourselves.
Please, click on the link, watch, listen, read... promise it will be worth your while if you are in need of a reminder about our own attitude and the way it shapes our life.

Copied from SIRIRADHA's blog, and yes, to me it is a day late, but surely the strength of our prayers, or their effect, isn't lessened simply because the date may be wrong... at least it's something we can ALL do to help.
To All People Around the World
Please send your prayers of love and gratitude to water at the nuclear plants in Fukushima, Japan!
By the massive earthquakes of Magnitude 9 and surreal massive tsunamis, more than 10,000 people are still missing…even now… It has been 16 days already since the disaster happened. What makes it worse is that water at the reactors of Fukushima Nuclear Plants started to leak, and it’s contaminating the ocean, air and water molecule of surrounding areas.
Human wisdom has not been able to do much to solve the problem, but we are only trying to cool down the anger of radioactive materials in the reactors by discharging water to them.
Is there really nothing else to do?
I think there is. During over twenty year research of hado measuring and water crystal photographic technology, I have been witnessing that water can turn positive when it receives pure vibration of human prayer no matter how far away it is.
Energy formula of Albert Einstein, E=MC2 really means that Energy = number of people and the square of people’s consciousness.
Now is the time to understand the true meaning. Let us all join the prayer ceremony as fellow citizens of the planet earth. I would like to ask all people, not just in Japan, but all around the world to please help us to find a way out the crisis of this planet!!
The prayer procedure is as follows.
Name of ceremony:
“Let’s send our thoughts of love and gratitude to all water in the nuclear plants in Fukushima”
Day and Time:
March 31st, 2011 (Thursday) at 12:00 noon in each time zone
Please say the following phrase:
“The water of Fukushima Nuclear Plant, we are sorry to make you suffer. Please forgive us. We thank you, and we love you.”
Please say it aloud or in your mind. Repeat it three times as you put your hands together in a prayer position.
Please offer your sincere prayer.
Thank you very much from my heart.
With love and gratitude,
Messenger of Water

'On Wednesday, Dr. Oz had a show on the fastest growing cancer in, women, thyroid cancer. It was a very interesting program and he, mentioned that the increase could possibly be related to the use of, dental x-rays and mammograms. He demonstrated that on the apron the, dentist puts on you for your dental x-rays there is a little flap that, can be lifted up and wrapped around your neck. Many dentists don't, bother to use it. Also, there is something called a "thyroid guard", for use during mammograms. By coincidence, I had my yearly mammogram, yesterday. I felt a little silly, but I asked about the guard and sure, enough, the technician had one in a drawer. I asked why it wasn't, routinely used. Answer: "I don't know. You have to ask for it." Well, if I hadn't seen the show, how would I have known to ask?, Someone was nice enough to forward this to me. I hope you pass this on, to your friends and family. '

One of the teams I'm co-leader with is Finding & Loving Your Inner Tigger, which I first joined because even the name took me back to those childhood times when I would find a quiet place and read of Pooh, Tigger, Eyeore, Piglet, Roo, Owl, and their various friends. That is one of my favourite memories of my childhood - I lived and breathed Pooh and friends, I fell asleep at night dreaming of the fun and adventures I could have had, if I'd been able to join all A.A. Milne's characters... childhood truly can be a magical time of our life if it's enriched with a love and plentiful supply of books.
Team Tigger activity has been decreasing of late, and I couldn't come up with an idea which would instantly invigorate it. Didn't think it could be done... but... thanks to our new(ish) co-leader LEXIE63, my request for some different challenge ideas produced way more than expected. Within a day or so, she had completely revamped the team's focus, taking us back to that magical time of childhood when we were friends with Christopher Robin and his various acquaintances. She has transformed the activities, the challenges, and all of it is related to the Hundred Acre Wood and its inhabitants.
I was so excited by what Lexie had come up with, she was excited, and obviously the many others who read her blog, or just checked out the team by chance, probably searching for some of that childhood sense of fun and adventure, where anything was possible, were also excited, because over the past two days we have already grown by 5 new members! They found their own little bit of that childhood fantasy world there on team Tigger, so maybe some others who read this blog will also be searching for that place in their life where anything is possible, where there are no demands, only friendly competition and lots of fun and laughter.
Why not come and check us out? At worst, it will put a smile on your face, finding out where all the characters fit in our team's new layout. We also have a new team icon - a photo of a Tigger badge Lexie has been the proud owner of for many years!
And now for the bits and pieces -
Update on Ned - leg is being devotedly kept clean by a very attentive doggy nursemaid - Keiodie. He grudgingly lets me check the leg twice per day, but if I attempt to clean it the water and cloth must be sniffed to make sure its ok, before he will allow me to use it on Ned. The leg is not swollen, it is a healthy colour, and I am allowing nature to take its course, the only exception being spraying the fly repellent I always use on Ned's head (ears were suffering fly strike before its use) on the upper side of the injured leg.
My 'sometimes cat' Malachai came to visit and share some dinner with Rhani last night - complete with a gash across the top of his nose! (Talk about anything you can have, I can have better, lol!) Cleaned it, regardless of very vocal protests, and have come to the conclusion that his injury was done by the plovers already beginning to nest, behind the back of our property.
Bent over to pick up a peg from the lawn out the back after checking Ned last night, Ned thought it was a game, bounced towards me (not on me, just in my general direction, a la Tigger), I jumped, my foot slipped on the peg, and I stopped myself falling flat on the ground by putting my hand up to stop myself. Result? Strained muscle in the outer shoulder blade - rib area. Swollen slightly, gave the doctor a call, he prescribed pain meds (trying to resist taking any unless I'm desperate) and said it could be torn, but recommended I wait till tomorrow to have it checked. I'm happy with that, no sense rushing up there needlessly, and despite a constant nagging pain, I can do almost everything I need to for today.
Not looking for excuses, but there is no way I am going to mow that back lawn todayl. (And this comment after yesterday's blog about Ned and his enthusiasm for exercise, lol.)

I have been guilty of avoiding exercise, still am at times, specially just of late when there seems to have been many more urgent things needing my attention. At other times I have used the excuse of sore joints, a back ache, a headache, etc., to avoid exercising. Some times they are justified, other times not so.
Last night I got a really good wake up call, a reminder that where exercise is concerned, it can take our minds off the things that are worrying us or causing us pain, and give us reason to appreciate the joys of being out and about, seeing, smelling and hearing things in places other than at home...
I'd been tied up all day with visits from or to friends, which took up most of my day, and because of that didn't get a chance to spend any time with the dogs till after I'd been to spend time with Dad. It was 7.30pm before we set off for our walk, and both dogs were grinning madly as I attached their leashes prior to heading out.
We walked further than expected, because it was a lovely calm still night, no cold breeze, just perfect... there were smells for the dogs to investigate at every step, so it seemed, but soon they were focused on outpacing each other - not exactly an even contest, because Ned is a border collie and Keiodie is a Maltese-Shih Tzu cross. Size difference means nothing to those two, they continually forge their way ahead of each other. The pace slowed after a while, and I said the one word guaranteed to get things moving again 'faster'. That was it, we were off and walking as fast as its possible for one person leading two dogs to walk. We were gone for over an hour, and both dogs as well as me, were tired when we got back home.
I opened the back gate, ready to walk through and remove the leashes when I noticed something red on the quilt Ned drags everywhere to lie on. It was blood, large amounts of blood, in about 8 six inch wide circles. At first I thought maybe the dogs had caught a bird, but no, no feathers. Next thought was a cat, as they refuse to allow even poor Rhani into their back yard, although theyare bluffed of her anywhere else.
I felt Keiodie from head to foot, running my fingers over every inch of his body - nothing, no blood, no pain. Not him, obviously. Next, starting at Ned's head, I worked my way over his body, and it wasn't till I was checking the left hind leg below the knee that my fingers were suddenly in contact with gaping flesh where there should have been hair and skin.
There was a 4 - 5 inch tear in his leg, down the back of it, and it was deep. Obviously it had been done some hours before, as it had stopped bleeding, and Keiodie had done his usual 'nursemaid' job of cleaning it of dirt and blood, other than where Ned had sat while I was checking him. I persuaded him to allow me to wash the area, disinfect it, pat it dry gently, then spray with antiseptic spray which is specially formulated to stick, not wash or wear off for quite some time. The wound should h ave been stitched, but it had obviously been left too long to be able to be stitched by the time I discovered it.
Ned allowed me to do all these things to him , which were definitely painful, but he didn't even attempt to move away, didn't whine, didn't complain, till I was finished, and gave him a big hug. Poor boy hobbled away on three legs, hid behind a plant pot, obviously in pain, but when I said 'poor Ned', his tail could still wag to let me know he was ok.
That dog had walked so far, so fast, on what was obviously an extremely painful leg. He had done it without complaint, for two reasons - one, he would do absolutely anything to please me, two, he loves walking, loves the adventure, the smells... to him, the pain of walking was more than made up for by the fun of being out and about again.
Really gave me cause while I was lying in bed late last night, to think about the excuses I've used to justify my really not being bothered to get in some exercise.... sometimes supposedly 'dumb' animals are the greatest teachers of life's lessons.
