"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to
one's courage." Anais Nin

Courage is not only physical courage,
moral courage, even spiritual courage
all have their place in the statement of
who you choose to be in this life's walk.
Thankfully, we are not required to be
like any other person....simply our
unique self.
Just like a snowflake,huh?

It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life,
that no man can sincerely try to help another without
(at the same time) helping himself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882

There is no action in life we can do for/to another
(or refuse to do) which does not have an interaction
with our deepest self.
Giving of our best to others.....simply ensures that
we are fulfilling our own highest standard of self...
for how else could we define 'best' if not by our
own standard?

It descends from the heavens, is gentle, delicate and
has the colour of innocence. When standing upon this
reality we call earth, it interlocks, joins together and
forms a magnificence of beauty.
It's snow!
Interesting to think if we humans could just 'join
together' more what kind of magnificence we could

manifestations of the amygdala-based fight or flight response? Posted by Picasa
The problem with the tradition-based 'religions' is that
they are stuck in reverse gear in a car park full of
sectarianism and bigotry. Few,if any, of the 'qualified
drivers' seem to understand how to find first gear and
move forward.
Those few that do cause chaos in an area where everyone
else seems determined to blindly drive backwards following
previous examples.
Just like a 'dodgem track' at the fairground where the
'fair ground' is the earth and the track is life.
So much energy and good intentions wasted in
unnecessary collisions,huh?
