Beauty of Life

“I will greet this day with love in my heart.And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again.I will love the sun for it warms my bones;yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart;yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.”-Og Mandino


Spirit and Soul

“I call the light and high aspects of my being spirit and the dark and heavy aspects soul.Soul is at home in the deep,shaded valleys.Heavy torpid flowers saturated with black grow there.The rivers flow like warm syrup.They empty into huge oceans of soul.Spirit is a land of high white peaks and glittering jewel-like lakes and flowers.Life is sparse and sounds travel great distances. There is soul music,soul food, and soul love… People need to climb the mountain not simple because it is there But because the soulful divinity needs to be mated with the spirit.”-Dalai Lama
