Desiderata - Words for Life by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant;

This is What I was Reminded of Today

This is an important life lesson. One everyone should read and share. One that everyone should try and apply.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..

‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.

‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.

Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.”

What the Mayan Elders are Saying About 2012 by Carlos Barrios

article from: http://lettertorobin1.site.aplus.net/id435.html

Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq’ij (is a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide) of the Eagle Clan. Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars circulating. Carlos along with his brother Gerardo studied with many teachers and interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge.

Carlos found out quickly there were several conflicting interpretations of Mayan hieroglyphs, petroglyphs, Sacred Books of ‘Chilam Balam’ and various ancient text. Carlos found some strong words for those who may have contributed to the confusion:

Can Urban Agriculture Feed a Hungry World?

Vertical Farming

By Fabian Kretschmer and Malte E. Kollenberg

Romses Architects
Agricultural researchers believe that building indoor farms in the middle of cities could help solve the world’s hunger problem. Experts say that vertical farming could feed up to 10 billion people and make agriculture independent of the weather and the need for land. There’s only one snag: The urban farms need huge amounts of energy.

Guerrilla gardener targets KC highway

By Carolyn Szczepanski in Picket Lines, Random LifeMonday, Jun. 29 2009 @ 7:30AM

The urban guerrilla arrives by bike, his plaid, farmer-like shirt unbuttoned and his hair matted with sweat from the near-100-degree heat. The dirt under his nails indicates that he’s a gardener. But he’s doesn’t want to reveal too much about his efforts greening the city.

He will speak only on condition of anonymity.

His nom de guerre: G3.

His tactic: hijacking public land for undercover food production.

The Effect of Not Doing

From daily OM July 9th
When We Don’t Take Action

Life is sculpted on a moment-to-moment basis. Every one of the thoughts we think, the words we speak, and the actions we take contributes to the complex quality and character of the universe’s unfolding.

It simply is not possible to be alive without making an impact on the world that surrounds us. Every action taken affects the whole as greatly as every action not taken.

And when it comes to making the world a better place, what we choose not to do can be just as important as what we choose to do.

What the Equinox is Bringing…

Maybe you feel it. A HUGE wave of energy rushing
toward the planet. Maybe, like me, you’ve been
exhausted, weepy, achy, irritable, unfocused,
depressed, and restless all at the same time, unable
to summon up a desire for anything. And it’s
accelerated this past week, hasn’t it?

Wondering what that wave is bringing?

Just the New Earth, that’s all.

But what will that look like in practical terms for
you?

The end of the fear-matrix. Which means that anything
AT ALL which feeds on fear, which is founded on fear,
which exists out of fear…is going. FAST. It will
disappear from the face of the Earth and be replaced
by the love-matrix, which supports only those
creations that align with your heart and the Divine
Plan for peace on Earth.

Okay, but what will THAT look for you?

It means any relationship that you maintain out of
fear, obligation, or ‘because you feel you have to’
for any reasons…kiss it good-bye.

It means any job you keep out of fear of not having
enough money, or fear of going out on your own, or
fear of following your real dreams…is already
falling apart and is destined to end quickly.

It means if you live somewhere that you don’t really
like, but that you feel is practical and you ‘can’t
leave’…you may as well as start packing now.

It means any organization or institution which profits
from or incites fear in any way is going to crumble
rapidly to make way for ones that are about love, so
if you are still dependent on those things, it’s time
to pull out and find the New Energy way of meeting
those needs.

EVERYTHING that is founded on fear…everything that
you hold onto out of fear…everything that controls
your life through fear…it’s all GOING.

And everything your heart truly desires will be laid
before you, just as soon as the place is made ready
for it. And, ready or not, the place WILL be made
ready for it. The Divine Plan waits NO longer.

I hope this helps you get through the next difficult
week or so before the Equinox, and also through the
phenomenally dramatic upheaval that it will bring.

Love in the Highest Octave,

Satina

Trust as a Personal Journey

from: Simon Nightstarr

“If you spent just five minutes in an attitude of solid trust in
yourself, your greatest dreams would begin to explode into reality.”

Trust is my spiritual keyword for today! Not only will I contemplate
trust, I promise to allow the flame of trust within me to grow even
brighter as I practice the FEELING of trust. “Be comfortable with
trust,” I hear the angels sing.

I give thanks to myself for all the times that I have trusted, and I
savor the delicious feeling of accomplishment. I thank the Great
Spirit for giving me a heart of trust and I thank my Divine Self for
entrusting me with new courage and strength to accomplish my life’s work.

The path of trust is without end. Walking in faith is greater than
walking in order to get someplace, for trust is its own destination.
My path is illuminated by the light of my trust, for trust gives
clarity and direction. Today I am reminded to trust that all is well
on my journey. Amen.
