Quotes...In Any Language

Hello Friends,

Hope all is well. I like exploring other people's blogs to get some ideas for my own. I just added a widget to right from AltaVista called Babel Fish. I got the idea from Sagun's Blog. It's a great site to visit and read about a variety of subjects.

Readers from all parts of the world can now translate this blog into their native tongue. This falls in line with the theme of this blog. When I started this blog, I wanted it to have a Universal feel. I wanted to share the message of feeling good to whom ever wanted to hear it no matter their background.

I have my beliefs, but I feel our own personal beliefs blind us to the good that are in others and the way that they think. The message of feeling good transcends all races, creeds, and religions. I don't subscribe to a God that only wants one religion to feel good while others can't. It just doesn't make sense for us to be focusing on our differences.

There is One Source from which we all stem from. This Source, regardless of what you call it has provided everything we need to feel good. We as humans, with our egos, want to have it all for ourselves. This mentality stunts the growth of the whole. A few people prosper while the majority suffers.

Look at nature. A tree for example. The tree works as a whole to grow. Their isn't one branch battling another. Their isn't one branch that is trying to entice birds to nest only on their limbs. Their is no competition because nature doesn't resist what is natural...Growth. Nature adheres to the cycle of life. Their is birth , growth, and then death. It is just a cycle that we all have to fulfill. Why make our existence so difficult.

Be like a tree and work with your fellow man to strengthen the whole. When I was younger I used to love to climb trees. I would spend hours sitting up their reading comic books or just day dreaming. Their is an amazing sense of life in a tree. Being in a nature puts us in a state that is in tune with the Source. Take the time to just be in nature. Be still. Listen to the whispers of the wind. This is the voice of the Source. This is love. Many blessings and thanks for listening.

Hey SandPiper. I thought about you today. We had 3.5 inches of rain last night in Miami Beach. I went to go hit golf balls today at this little course close to my house and it was almost completely under water. Needless to say I couldn't get any practice in, but I didn't leave right away. Because of the rain, there was a bunch of white birds with long pinkish orange beaks wading in the water having their fill of bugs. They were beautiful. I regret not having my camera. They might have been herons or egrets. I'm not sure. All I know is, for that moment, nothing else mattered. It was just me, the birds, and the One. Thanks for stopping by. Blessings!
