"If we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children; and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won't have to struggle; we won't have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which consciously or unconsciously the whole world is hungering."
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed." ~Albert Einstein
Find a place in your consciousness where living with awe and wonder makes sense and spend as much time as you are able in that place; embrace that view of the world and thrive. ~Dave Kenyon
When you discover something of value, pass it on. When you become inspired to discover your passion, pass on your excitement. When you find hope, pass it on. Whenever you unearth a true gem of insite, pass it on.
It's by sharing that we demonstrate our love and caring for others; share what you value the that value will enhance the world! ~Dave Kenyon
Some Enlightened Thanksgiving Thoughts
by Ernie Fitzpatrick
I am THANKFUL that I no longer embrace some of my earlier childhood beliefs such as:
>I am THANKFUL that God is not a PUNISHER sending people to hell eternally.
>I am THANKFUL that we're not brought into the world FLAWED and sinful, but in the image of God
>I am THANKFUL that we are not VICTIMS but participants in the creation of nature and our very lives.
> I am THANKFUL that I am ONE with Creator and creation and not separated.
> I am THANKFUL that I get to PARTICIAPTE in how my life and world will develop
> I am THANKFUL that there's not a COSMIC OVERLORD that I need to worry about pleasing each day.
>I am THANKFUL that as humans we are not all-powerful, but we are ALL POWERFUL.
>I am THANKFUL that the Creator is PURSUASIVE and not coercive!
>I am THANKFUL that we are neither subjects of a vengeful God, nor victims of a random universe.
>I am THANKFUL that we hold within our collective selves the ability to achieve a positive CRITICAL MASS before we reach a critical massacre.
"Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. And man can be a s big as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings."
