Be With Those That Help Your Being
A Poem By Rumi..
Be with those who help your being.
Don't sit with indifferent people, whose breath
comes cold out of their mouths.
Not these visible forms, your work is deeper.
A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces. If you don't try to fly, and so break yourself apart, you will be broken open by death, when it's too late for all you could become.
Leaves get yellow. The tree puts out fresh roots and makes them green. Why are you so content with a love that turns you yellow?
Where Do Birds Go To Die
A Poen by Sandra...
I wonder where birds go to die, nesting above the earth sweetly caressing as she flies by. I see the small ones, the large ones, the young ones, but never do I see an old one, one that has died.
Do they fly to their mothers nesting high in a tree, or do they search the winds for that special place, that place that calls them home. Soaring in the sky, up, up and out into the sun.
The universe calls and then they fly know more…. I wonder where birds go to die.
Perhaps it is under the leaves beyond the cities, the sweet smell of the forest, and under the mantle of the home they know so well, with the sun and the wind they sing their last song.
Do they lie beneath the grass and leaves to release the bonds of life and there they sing their last song to the earth. Oh sweet, sweet song of the nightingale, the sparrow, the thrush, I hear you no more.
And yet again when the morning light appears in the sky there you are again, singing your sweet song. And still I wonder…where do birds go to die?

VIRTUE MOMENTS ARE EVERYWHERE
Show Your Light... by Nelson Mandela
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous. Actually, who are you not to be. You are a child of God. your playing small doesn't serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And when we let our own light shine we unconciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear our prescence automatically liberates others.

Some Humour The DISC Personality Style Way...
A High C patient was seen fleeing down the hall of the hospital just before his operation.
"What's the matter?" he was asked. He said, "I heard the nurse say, "It's a very simple operation, don't worry, I'm sure it will be all right!"
"She was trying to comfort you, what's so frightening about that?" "She wasn't talking to me. She was talking to the doctor!"
A High I man and his wife were browsing in a craft store when the man noticed a display of country-style musical instruments. After looking over the flutes, dulcimers and recorders, he picked up a shinny, one stringed instrument. The man taking it to be a mouth harp, put it to his lips and much to the amusement of other shoppers, twanged a few notes on it. Looking at the shopper's delight and smiling faces he played on.
After watching from a distance the man's wife came up and gently pulled him behind a stand of water melons and said, "I hate to tell you this, honey, but you're trying to play a cheese slicer!"
