I came across this poem today and it is so beautiful.
What a joyous and peaceful way this would be to live life.

"O Sadhu! the simple union is the best.
Since the day when I met with my Lord,
there has been no end to the sport of our love.
I shut not my eyes, I close not my ears,
I do not mortify my body;
I see with eyes open and smile, and
behold His beauty everywhere;
I utter His Name, and whatever I see,
it reminds me of Him; whatever I do, it
becomes His worship.
The rising and the setting are one to
me; all contradictions are solved.
Wherever I go, I move around Him,
All I achieve is His service:
When I lie down, I lie prostrate at His feet.
. . . I am immersed in that one great bliss which
transcends all pleasure and pain."

— Kabir
One Hundred Poems of Kabir.

“If you have a problem and you can't find a solution, you meet again tomorrow and you keep talking until you find a solution. You can disagree with behavior or a particular position, but you do not resort to calling an opponent worthless.”

― Kofi Annan, Interventions: A Life in War and Peace

"Talking to find a solution works well to resolve conflict within ourselves. Some parts are seen as friends, others as foes. Resolving inner conflict is important before we can begin to solve the problems of the world."

People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered. Love them anyway.If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.Do good anyway.If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.Do good anyway.Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind. Think big anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People really need help but may attack if you help them. Help people anyway. Give the world the best you have and you might get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you've got anyway.

Fabulous quotes - much food for thought...

—Joseph Addison (1672-1719); English Essayist, Poet, Playwright And Politician.

“Be present in all things and thankful for all things” Maya Angelou

“If you laugh you change; and when you change the world changes.” Shilpa Shah

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.

When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers.

Thank you Kali.

Just found this great passage in Scott Stossel's book, My Age of Anxiety:

A study published by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital in 2011 found that subjects who practiced meditation for an average of just twenty-seven minutes a day over a period of eight weeks produced visible changes in brain structure. Meditation led to decreased density of the amygdala, a physical change that was correlated with subjects' self-reported stress levels--as their amygdalae got less dense, the subjects felt less stressed. Other studies have found that Buddhist monks who are especially good at meditating show much greater activity in their frontal cortices, and much less in their amygdalae, than normal people. Meditation and deep-breathing exercises work for similar reasons as psychiatric medications do, exerting their effects not just on some abstract concept of mind but concretely on our bodies, on the somatic correlates of our feelings. Recent research has shown that even old-fashioned talk therapy can have tangible, physical effects on the shape of our brains.

"Sometimes, compassion will demand from you that you eat humble pie. It could be that you have to stand back to allow someone else to take the glory, or to develop and learn. Good mothers do that every day. Or sometimes you have to endure humiliation for the sake of your beloved. How many fathers and mothers do not have to swallow their pride when they are treated unfairly, so that they can keep that job and feed their children? Compassion has a way of turning what others see as defeat into victory for you. This victory of compassion is often silent and only you would know about it. Self-sacrifice for the sake of others often has a bitter taste, but it is true victory, for it is the hidden victory of the spirit over the ego."

Thanks Barbie for this subject today. I do have a tendency to do this with something things.
It is a very good reminder. I read another quote on the same topic. "My molehills are your mountains" and thought what a happy and fortunate person that is.

"One way to get high blood pressure is to go mountain climbing over molehills."
Earl Wilson

I tend to realise what I am doing and try to bring them down to size as quickly as possible with acceptance - must be getting better at it because my BP this time was 120/70. No bp meds for almost two years now, so I am happy with that.

At the end of the day, I can end up just totally wacky, because I've made mountains out of molehills. With meditation, I can keep them as molehills.

Most people think only of changing conditions to suit them, very few think of how to change themselves to suit the current conditions.

- They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

- Andy Warhol

Namaste***Cindi***"Get Grateful, Be Happy."


You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.

~ Mary Manin Morrissey



Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.

Dalai Lama

"Suffering is not enough. Life is both dreadful and wonderful...How can I smile when I am filled with so much sorrow? It is natural--you need to smile to your sorrow because you are more than your sorrow.”

I breathe in love with gratitude and reverence. I breathe out love without condition or expectation. Every breath is a sacred and extraordinary gift.

One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.
