Leashed

Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat.

The root

Fear. Perceived loss of power is fear. Perceived loss of territory is fear. Perceived loss of 'standing' (aka ego) is fear. The basis of anger is fear. The basis of depression is anger which is fear. Fear. The root of so much that is wrong with this world.

Universal action

The law of attraction is really the law of reflective resonance. Universe absorbs your resonance

and reflects back the people and situations

you resonate.

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles which he has overcome

True to self

Our independence to pursue our 'trueness' lies within

challenging certain systems, working outside of those systems, making our own systems.
We are not serfs to the system.

Be the change

If they don't kill the messenger, it takes only one person

to inform the village.

It takes only one informed village to create a small movement.

It takes only one small movement to make a difference.

It takes only one person to change the world.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning

and I go to bed at night. In between,

I occupy myself as best I can.

Do-over (a classic)

If I had my life to live over again I would have waxed less and listened more.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy and complaining about the shadow over my feet, I'd have cherished every minute of it and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was to be my only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.

I would have eaten popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried less about the dirt when you lit the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would have burnt the pink candle that was sculptured like a rose before it melted while being stored.

I would have sat cross-legged on the lawn with my children and never worried about grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television...and more while watching real life.

 

I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband which I took for granted.

I would have eaten less cottage cheese and more ice cream.

I would have gone to bed when I was sick, instead of pretending the Earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for a day.

I would never have bought ANYTHING just because it was practical/wouldn't show soil/ guaranteed to last a lifetime.

When my child kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now, go get washed up for dinner."

There would have been more I love yous...more I'm sorrys...more I'm listenings...but mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute of it...look at it and really see it...try it on...live it...exhaust it...and never give that minute back until there was nothing left of it.

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one

that heralds the most discoveries,is not "Eureka!" (I found it!)

but 'That's funny...'
