Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
- Melody Beattie

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and all science.

who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
- Albert Einstein

for truth is always strange;
Stranger than fiction.

but that is because Fiction is obliged
to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.

When one gets angry, it is always angry AT someone -
perhaps a friend or spouse, perhaps a stranger,
perhaps the nameless "they" - "those people at the bank wronged me,"
perhaps God, or perhaps oneself.
In any case, when one gets angry,
they want to find someone to be "responsible" for what happened.

We are all "neighbors."
Our world has gotten too small for us to be anything else.
We can no longer have "us" and "them" - friends and enemies.
A person from Iraq, or Russia, or Columbia is
no more a stranger or enemy than a person from across town.
A few people everywhere are troublemakers.
Every religion provokes a few people to become extremists.

Do we need war? Does that question even deserve an answer?

Laws are sand, customs are rock.
Laws can be evaded and punishment escaped,
but an openly transgressed custom brings sure punishment.
The penalty may be unfair, unrighteous, illogical, and a cruelty;
no matter, it will be inflicted, just the same.
Certainly, then, there can be but one wise thing
for a visiting stranger to do -
find out what the country's customs are,
and refrain from offending against them.
- Mark Twain

The human mind treats a new idea the way the body
treats a strange protein; it rejects it.
- Peter Medawar

to go free, but we go in chains -
chains of training, custom, convention,

and against these bonds
the strongest of us struggle in vain.
- Mark Twain

Join the army. Visit strange and exotic places.
Meet fascinating people. And kill them.

and start grinning good morning
at total strangers.

It makes one feel as you might
when a drowning man holds unto you.
You want to save him, but you know
he will strangle you with his panic.

Open yourself to the Light!
Hold back nothing,
Trust in the Light.
