“You seem to think you’re insignificant, but the truth is you’re so intelligent, beautiful, kind and decent, adorable. I can’t be the first person to have fallen in love with you, and I won’t be the last. But I do believe I will love you the most.” ~ Ai Mi, Under the Hawthorn Tree
“Each time a person passes by you and you say ‘hello’, imagine that person turning into a candle. The more positivity, love and light you reflect, the more light is mirrored your way. Sharing beautiful hellos is the quickest way to earn spiritual brownie points. You should start seeing hellos as small declarations of faith. Every time you say hello to a stranger, your heart acknowledges over and over again that we are all family.” ~ Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
“Watching my parents I’ve learnt a lesson many do not recognize. True love is not signaled by romantic, candle light dinners, red roses glistening with dew, or even Valentine’s day celebrations. While these things may accompany our feelings, love is truly more than all those! Love is being with your spouse even when its not pleasing. Sometimes, love is walking down the hall, with your spouse hanging onto your shoulders and walking at a turtle’s pace down the hall, just because surgery made life a burden. Love is patient, love is kind! May we always remember love is not always tied in bows!” ~ Mary Kate
Non-acceptance of people as they are
If we accept unconditionally, it becomes love.
No acceptance of what is beyond our control.
If we accept, it becomes tolerance.
“You have infinite potential. Challenge Yourself to see where you can go. If you don’t you’ll decay.” ~ Imran Khan
No acceptance of good in the other.
If we accept good, it becomes inspiration.
Non acceptance of uncertainty.
If we accept uncertainty, it becomes adventure.
Anything beyond what we need is poison.
It can be power, laziness, food, ego, ambition, vanity, fear, anger, or whatever.
Be Kind to the Planet:
Watch Sir David Attenborough’s message to World Leaders at WWF’s Leaders for Nature and People event, at the UN Climate Action Summit, part of the 74th UN General Assembly.
“What we do in the next few years, will determine the next few thousand years.”
“A calm voice of reason. Exactly what we need in these times of unwarranted paranoia, delusion and polarization. Thank you, Sir David Attenborough!”
“Sir David Attenborough.
I heard your soul breaking.
Your eyes are a giveaway.
It really hurts to see what is happening to Mother Earth.”
“.0000001% of the human race should not be deciding the fate of all living organisms”
“There’s a phrase that comes to mind, “ship of fools.” Over the decades since I read “The Silent Spring” by Rachel Carson I’ve watched while ignorance, hubris and greed stall any intelligent effort on the scale necessary to respectfully act as good stewards of this planet…our only home.
Things are changing fast. Unfortunately these things don’t include the insane amount of the aforementioned greed, ignorance etc. When Mother Nature punches our ticket soon, the ship will remain but the fools will be on their final journey. My heart breaks for our children. Do you have anyone you care about? We are apparently lousy gamblers. Good luck to us all, we’re going to need it.”
“David describing the Holocene periods knows climate change is a reality of earth and not caused by man . Yes this time period of stability is ending the sun is getting stronger and earth magnetic poles are shifting and even other planets like Mars (ice caps are melting ) are changing.”
