Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.
May your neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, angels protect you and heaven accept you
Today’s Quote by Gandhi on Relationships
Relationships are based on four principles: respect, understanding, acceptance and appreciation. ~Gandhi
Each time we listen to someone, really listen, we validate that person and his or her story. In doing so, we show great respect for the person. I know it is the way I want to be treated. In this 2 minute YouTube video psychologist Carl Rogers gives us great advice on how to listen.
I learn a great deal by merely observing you, and letting you talk as long as you please, and taking note of what you do not say. ~T. S. Eliot
Do you think you are only one person? Do you often say, “What can I do?” “How can I make a difference?” All it takes is one person, with a courageous heart. One person who sees injustice, evil, or a person who needs healing and acts. It takes persistence and an indomitable spirit. Are you that person? Irena Sendler was that person. Watch the 2 minute YouTube video and you’ll discover what one ordinary person did that was by any measure extraordinary. I know she inspired me. I hope she will touch your heart.
It’s not who others think you are. It’s not what others think you should be. It’s not what others think of you. it’s what you think about your self. See the best in yourself. See a human being worthy of giving love and being loved. The following YouTube video will make you think about these questions.
