Nothing

Source: Nothing

This is a wonderful quote from Buddha. Our thoughts and emotions are fleeting and impermanent. When we accept them as such, we are able to let go and suffer less. To be present in each moment, mindful of ourselves and the world. is accepting ourselves as we are in that moment.

Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of the Poor

St. Francis holds a special place for our family. Kathy and I used the Prayer of St. Francis as part of our wedding ceremony. As well, the Prayer has been part of funerals in my family.

St. Francis is the patron saint of the poor. I think we are judged on how we help those with the least in our world. In some ways, they have the more than the billionaires and politicians who take from them daily.

The Teacher’s Prayer

I am working my way back into blogging on a daily basis. This is a wonderful poem about becoming a teacher. Children are a gift from God to teachers, parents, and grandparents.

WORDS IN THE LIGHT

He does not go to church.
He has no religion,
but he works in a school
and uses books and pencils.

He sits beside the children of God
then looks deep in their eyes.
They write the words he reads,
he reads the words they write,

and the smile on his face
enlightens their heart,
and the smile in their heart
enlightens his soul,

and I do not doubt
that God the Father
will answer
the Teacher’s Prayer.

If you are at peace you are living in the present

To live in the present is challenging. People tend to want to imagine a past that suits where they are today and create a fantastic future that cannot be achieved. Be present in this moment to live life fully.

Peace Begins With Peaceful Actions

The quote is from Johnn Lennon. This is a wonderful message in a world saddened by the horrors that befall so many. Give peace a chance.
