keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

The "stories" we choose to tell about our past
are never what a video camera would have recorded.

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.

There are droughts and heat waves, injuries occur.

Service which is rendered without joy
helps neither the servant nor the served.
But all other pleasures and possessions
pale into nothingness before service
which is rendered in a spirit of joy.

You are not your mind. You, a Spiritual BEing,
are neither your mind nor your body.
Mind and body are your tools - to use as you choose.
Sometimes your body appears to have a will of its own,
as when it twitches or pains.
Likewise, your mind often appears to have its own will.
That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When a man is fortunate enough to have several,

works two contrary effects;
for it redoubleth joys, and cutteth griefs in half.

his friends are the rest of him.
