Ready to Radiate

There is nothing outside you.
That is what you must ultimately learn.
Deep within you
is everything that is perfect,
ready to radiate through you
and out into the world.

Live in the Present

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave,
find your eternity in each moment.

Each moment is all we need - not more.

Last of Human Freedoms

"We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances - to choose one's own way."

- Victor Frankl

Death and Love

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Reap a Destiny

The law of harvest is to reap more than you sow.
Sow an act, and you reap a habit.
Sow a habit and you reap a character.
Sow a character and you reap a destiny.

Letting Go

Let go.

Why do you cling to pain?

There is nothing you can do

about the wrongs of yesterday.

It is not yours to judge.

Why hold on to the very thing which keeps you from hope and love?

- Leo Buscaglia

Mental Pathways

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth,
so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind.
To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again.
To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over
the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

- Henry David Thoreau

Live for Something

It's not enough to have lived.

We should be determined to live for something.

May I suggest that it be creating joy for others,

sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind,

ringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.

- Leo F. Buscaglia

Be a Possibilitarian

Become a possibilitarian.
No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are,
raise your sights and see the possibilities --
always see them, for they're always there.

Gifts of the Morning

When you arise in the morning,
think of what a precious privilege it is
to be alive -
to breathe,
to think,
to enjoy,
to love.

Blue Print

Visualize this thing that you want.
See it, feel it, believe in it.
Make your mental blue print,
and begin to build.

Girl's Best Friend

I talk to him when I'm lonesome like;
and I'm sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively,
and gently licks my hands;
then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes,
but I never say naught thereat.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
but never a friend like that.

~W. Dayton Wedgefarth

More Than a Feeling

Love is more than just a feeling:
it's a process requiring continual attention.
Loving well takes laughter, loyalty,
and wanting more to be able to say,
"I understand" than to hear, "You're right."

The Right Attitude

Nothing can stop the man
with the right mental attitude
from achieving his goal;
nothing on earth can help the man
with the wrong mental attitude.

Picture Success

Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind
a mental picture of yourself as
Hold this picture tenaciously.
Never permit it to fade.
Your mind will seek to develop the picture...
Do not build up obstacles
in your imagination.

- Norman Vincent Peale

Soldiers For Peace

The soldier above all others prays for peace,
for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear
the deepest wounds and scars of war.

Universe - New Only To Us

I am comforted by life's stability,
by earth's unchangeableness.
What has seemed new and frightening
assumes its place in the unfolding of knowledge.
It is good to know our universe.
What is new is only new to us.

- Pearl S. Buck

The Family

Call it a clan,
call it a network,
call it a tribe,
call it a family:

Whatever you call it,
whoever you are,
you need one.

Not knowing when the dawn will come,
I open every door.
