We are here on the planet Earth to live,
grow up and do what we can to make this world
a better place for all people to enjoy freedom.

Do we really need much more than this?
To honor the dawn. To visit a garden.
To talk to a friend.
To contemplate a cloud.
To cherish a meal.
To bow our heads before the mystery of the day.
Are these not enough?
~ Kent Nerburn ~
The sun shines not on us, but in us.
The rivers flow not past, but through us.

you haven’t seen yet.
Don’t ever give up on the chance of seeing them.

It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself,
to be light.

Love, compassion and peace do not belong
to any religion or tradition.
They are qualities in each one of us,
qualities of our hearts and minds.
~ Joseph Goldstein ~
When we think good thoughts, we feel good.
When we feel good, we make good choices.
When we feel good and make good choices,
we draw more good experiences into our lives.
It really is that simple…and elegant…and true.

It’s actually a great gift to other people.

It is within the core of the shaky,
of the body and the heart
that our aliveness can be found.

Live a balanced life —
learn some and think some and draw
and paint and sing and dance and play
and work every day some.

As much as we need a prosperous economy,
we also need a prosperity of kindness and decency.
