there in a whole new world hiding
beneath the face of the familiar.

We instinctively adopt familiar routines for most activities.

unless it is perturbed by illness or shift work.
Most everything we do is habitual.

I release the familiar that I may better discover my inspiring future.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Sheri Rosenthal

When I Come To The Edge of the Familiar,
I Spread My Wings and Fly.

Overwhelm is not a pleasant condition.
The to-do list overflows,
the deadlines appear imminent and immovable.
There are too many demands upon too little of your time.
Does this sound familiar?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A city is a place where there is no need to
wait for next week to get the answer to a question,
to taste the food of any country,
to find new voices to listen to and familiar ones to listen to again.

Familiarity breeds contempt - and children.

It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It does not dishonor others,

It keeps no record of wrongs.

but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

Small people never learn to be indifferent;

a lot more pleasure than they do pain.

The "stories" we choose to tell about our past
are never what a video camera would have recorded.
We can tell a sad story or a happy story,

more accurate or "better" than the other story.
The difference is that one story causes us to suffer,
while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

As the sun makes ice melt,
kindness causes misunderstanding,
mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.

We may stumble, but always there is that eternal voice,
forever whispering within our ear,
that thing which causes the eternal quest,
that thing which forever sings and sings.
- Ernest Holmes

because of the concurrence of causes and conditions.
Nothing ever exists entirely alone;
everything is in relation to everything else.

in the present invariable order of society.

We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason
if we dig deep in our history and remember

which were for the moment unpopular.
- Edward R. Murrow

Seeing my glass of life as mostly full
triggers an amazing cycle of transformation
Appreciation for the abundance of life incites gratitude -

Gratitude for abundance also creates increasing abundance.
Being truly grateful for the abundance that
is now in my life causes an ever greater abundance
to flow in my direction.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We will not walk in fear, one of another.
We are not descended from fearful men,

Truth cannot be defined,

But experience is not a definition.

But you can dance and you can know the inner feel of it.
God is the ultimate dance.

A working definition of Honor is,
"respect or esteem that has been earned."
Contemplate that for a moment.
It would be very special to earn the respect and esteem
of our family, our friends, our co-workers, our community, wouldn't it?
If anything, it is of even more moment to honor yourself.
Those who are successful and happy earn their own
self-respect and self-esteem.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's throat,
for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as a liberator,
while the wolf denounces him for the same act
as the destroyer of liberty,
especially as the sheep was a black one.
Plainly the sheep and the wolf are not agreed
upon a definition of the word liberty;
and precisely the same difference
prevails today among us human creatures
- Abraham Lincoln

and it's time to do something different?

your life won't work,
but if you keep tilting at windmills -
madly trying the same thing again and again,
your life also won't work.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

wishes it for my sake.
