Re: What Is Enlightenment?

Live Through The Winter We have to endure dark and frosty winters, If we wish to experience spring, And the woods have to be cold and silent, Before the skylark can take to its wing. Plants have to be buried in darkness, Before they can bud and then bloom, And the sweetest, warmest sunshine Comes a...

Re: Thought For Today

‘Rabbit’s clever,’ said Pooh thoughtfully. ‘Yes,’ said Piglet, ‘rabbit’s clever.’ ‘And he has Brain.’ ‘Yes,’ said Piglet, ‘rabbit has Brain.’ There was a long silence. ‘I suppose,’ said Pooh, ‘that’s why he never understands anything.’ A.A. Milne in ‘Winnie-the-Pooh’ This contains the message that f...

Re: Food For Thought

Building The New Jerusalem Many believe that our world is falling apart because humankind is neglecting its duty of caring for it, and that therefore it will perish.

Re: What Is Enlightenment?

Sometimes Sometimes things don’t go From bad to worse. Some years, tender things survive the frost, Green thrives and crops do not fail. Sometimes we aim high and things goes well. Sometimes a nation steps back from war, Elects an honest man and decides to care enough Not to leave strangers poor. I...

Re: Thought For Today

With all my heart and soul I believe that there is a great plan of life in which everybody has their place.

Re: Food For Thought

Learning To Control Our Minds As we know by now, thought is the most powerful force in the whole of Creation. Our thoughts create our reality and as we think, so we become.

Re: What Is Enlightenment?

Light At The End Of The Tunnel There’s light at the end of each tunnel And calm at the end of every storm. There’s rest at the end of life’s journey And a place that’s welcoming and warm. There’s a Star on top of the spiritual mountain, We can touch when the last crag has been scaled. There’s a cer...

Re: Thought For Today

‘One of the truly bad effects of religion is that it teaches us that it is a virtue to be satisfied with not understanding.’ Richard Dawkins in ‘The God Delusion’ ‘For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.’ Carl Sag...

Re: Food For Thought

Reaping The Whirlwind May the orgies of destruction during World War II of places like Berlin, Leipzig, Chemnitz and Dresden – in particular on February 13 and 15, 1945 – serve as a reminder of how Germany, because it sowed the wind of war, could not escape the consequences of its actions. Universa...

Our Pathway Through Life ‘What we do as we move forward through our life can be compared to us laying down paving, as we absorb and apply various principles and shed our negative aspects and attitudes to replace them with new and positive ones.

Sowing The Wind Hosea 8:7 from the Old Testament attempted to strike an early warning note into human hearts and souls with its: ‘They have sown the wind and they have reaped the whirlwind. It has no stalk, nor an ear to yield meal, and if it were to yield, the strangers shall eat it.’ Looking at t...

Stepping Stones Life on Earth has many stepping stones That help us find our way Across its busy stream, As we wade through it, day by day. At times the waters rise and overflow, And the future looks far from clear. No way there seems to be across And the stones all disappear. Wait until the flow s...

Re: Thought For Today

Once our earthly self is equipped with the gift of hindsight, in our reflections and meditations it becomes easier to draw the wisdom and understanding we are meant to gain from all our experiences. Every new lifetime for each one of us brings sufficient opportunities for doing so and that applies t...
