When we were growing up years ago in our sleepy Southern town most of the adults seemed rather staid and sober. There was however one memorable exception: Miss Lucy a widow lady who lived with her prim and proper sister Clara. But Miss Lucy was full

What I am thinking and doing day by day is resistlessly shaping my future a future in which there is no expiation except through my own better conduct. No one can save. No one can live my life for me. If I am wise I shall begin today to build my own truer and better world from within.

To trace the history of a river or a raindrop as John Muir would have done is also to trace the history of the soul the history of the mind descending and arising in the body. In both we constantly seek and stumble on divinity which like the cornice feeding the lake and the spring becoming a waterfall feeds spills falls and feeds itself over and over again.

When I am dead no pageant train Shall waste their sorrows at my bier Nor worthless pomp of homage vain Stain it with hypocritic tear.
Edward Everett   Category: Unsorted

To me it seems basic to the getting rid of fear to know that our trials of whatever nature are not motiveless. In our present stage of development we could hardly do without them. So often looking ... ugly ... they are in reality the branches by we which we catch on and climb. They are not obstacles to happiness... . Every call of duty has its place in this ideal; every irksome job every wearisome responsibility. The fact that we are not always aware of it in no way annuls the other fact that it is so....
William Benjamin Basil King   Category: Unsorted

We sometimes fear to bring our troubles to God because they must seem small to Him who sitteth on the circle of the earth. But if they are large enough to vex and endanger our welfare they are large enough to touch His heart of love. For love does not measure by a merchants scales not with a surveyors chain. It hath a delicacy... unknown in any handling of material substance.

There was too much noise. Sirens from police cars and ambulances. Shouts from the crowd on the street eighteen floors below. Traffic from other streets and all of the noises of San Francisco. Mostly though there were the voices. Whispering to him. Reminding him of the dark things he had done all of the little things he had forgotten all of the big things he had tried to forget. Mostly they reminded him of his biggest secret a betrayal of trust and friendship long ago. He squeezed his eyes shut as if that could somehow keep the voices away.

Francois Monnet   Category: Unsorted

The world of biology is full of miracles but nothing I have seen is as miraculous as the metamorphosis of the monarch caterpillar. Her brain is a speck of neural tissue a few millimeters long about a million times smaller than a human brain. With this almost microscopic clump of nerve cells she knows how to manage her new legs and wings to walk and to fly to find her way by some unknown means of navigation over thousands of miles from Massachusetts to Mexico. How are her behavior patterns programmed first into the genes of the caterpillar and then translated into the neural pathways of the butterfly? These are mysteries that biologists are far from understanding. The monarch is living proof that natures imagination is richer than our own.

E. W. Rice   Category: Unsorted

A perfect life is like that of a ship of war which has its own place in the fleet and can share in its strength and discipline but can also go forth alone in the solitude of the infinite sea. We ought to belong to society to have our place in it and yet be capable of a complete individual existence outside of it.
Philip Gilbert Hamerton   Category: Unsorted

As the opportunity grows for unlimited growth and progress the chances of failure increase. There is no such thing as a program that will provide security and growth and progress with no risk ... even within the church. As freedom for unrestricted development is enhanced the possibilities for failure are also increased. The risk factor is great.

I know not why His hand is laid In chastening on my life Nor why it is my little world Is filled so full of strife; I know not why when faith looks up And seeks for rest from pain That oer my sky fresh clouds arise And drench my path with rain. I know not why my prayer so long By Him has been denied; Nor why while others ships sail on Mine should in port abide. But I do know that God is love That He my burden shares And though I may not understand I know for me He cares. I know the heights for which I long Are often reached through pain I know the sheaves must needs be threshed To yield the golden grain. Tis that I thus may learn to love And know as I am known I will not care how rough the road That leads me to my home.

Jesus lived His life in complete dependence upon God as we all ought to live our lives. But such dependence does not destroy human personality. Man is never so fully and so truly personal as when he is living in complete dependence upon God. This is how personality comes into its own. This is humanity at its most personal.

He [Satan] has power over us to that extent [to tempt us] in this fallen condition. At the same time we have the sweet influence of the Spirit of God pleading with us to do that which is right pleading with every human being that does not drive it from him; for every human being has a portion of the Spirit of God given unto him. We sometimes call it conscience; we call it by one name and we call it by another; but it is the Spirit of God that every man and woman possesses that is born on the earth. God has given unto all his children this Spirit.... Everywhere throughout the earth where man dwells this Spirit rests upon him. It comes from God. It pleads with man to do right. It pleads with man to resist the blandishments of Satan.

Why should the Golden Rule be so difficult in business and foreign relations? The happily married treat each other as they wish to be treated. They treat their children better than they wish to be treated themselves. Unless we do unto a friend as we do unto ourselves we lose a friend. In an emergency we rush to the aid of our neighbor. Is it so great a step to realize that all people everywhere are neighbors?
Arthur Dunn   Category: Unsorted

Individualism as a definition of holding to personal ideals is classed as obstinacy and anti-social. Inevitably we run point blank into the evils of compromise. When compromise enters our moral fibre it spreads like a cancerous growth. We think we plan adequate safeguards around areas in which we contemplate yielding our standards but once we lower the fence and break our strong will to do right come what may we expose ourselves to forces that spread beyond control. Compromise always starts on some rather insignificant principle. The dangers of yielding seem negligible and we usually risk those things first where observation and detection by others is difficult. We thus seek to avoid censure and discipline. In a short time we find ourselves trading our principles for false values and doing it in the black market of human relationships....
Ralph W. Hardy   Category: Unsorted

Family life is the source of the greatest human happiness. This happiness is the simplest and least costly kind and it cannot be purchased with money. But it can be increased if we do two things: if we recognize and uphold the essential values of family life and if we get and keep control of the process of social change so as to make it give us what is needed to make family life perform its essential functions.

The mathematic then is an art. As such it has its styles and style periods. It is not as the layman and the philosopher (who is in this matter a layman too) imagine substantially unalterable but subject like every art to unnoticed changes form epoch to epoch. The development of the great arts ought never to be treated without an (assuredly not unprofitable) side-glance at contemporary mathematics.

John W. Gardner the president of the Carnegie Corporation in an address said this: The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity however humble that activity and to scorn shoddiness however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.

It is true that when we take chances we stand to lose. But it is also true that we will never win anything if we never even enter the game. Lucky people are aware of the possibility of losing and indeed they may lose often. But since the chances they take are small the losses tend to be small. By being willing to accept small losses they put themselves in position to make large gains.

... true religion was never a narrow thing. True religion concerns man and the entire universe in which he lives. It concerns his relationships with himself and his fellow men with his environment and with God his creator. It is therefore limitless and as boundless as that eternity which it teaches lies ahead of every son of God.... Here is the spirit of true religion an honest seeking after knowledge of all things of heaven and earth.

The ecumenical movement is more than Christian patriarchs kissing. Christian unity means the unity of mankind in finding and obeying God. Tillich can teach us that the Church must not shut its door to celebrate a family reunion while a single child of God remains outside.

We must stop assuming that a thing which has never been done before probably cannot be done at all.

The man whose concern is in personal dealing with people and leading them to understand God better finds it difficult to be patient with the theologian or the Christian philosopher whose work is in the quiet of a book-lined study. Yet the truth is that the wholeness which God is working to achieve is never complete in an individual but through individuals living together as one body each supplying the deficiencies of the others.

I agree that the fear of American cultural imperialism is shared by many people and I agree with your point about the invasive nature of television culture. But I wouldnt draw the next inference: that this is negative and therefore it must be stopped. I feel that one should address this influence in a way that takes away the negative edge through a positive counter-response. This way you reinforce and reaffirm your conviction in the inner values. You harness those beliefs and develop them with a greater degree of self-awareness. Thats the kind of response people should have instead of rejecting technology.

We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch or the country of our birth or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not most of us choose to die; nor do we choose the time or conditions of our death. But within all this realm of choicelessness we do choose how we shall live: courageously or in cowardice honorably or dishonorably with purpose or adrift. We decide what is important and what is trivial in life. We decide that what makes us significant is either what we do or what we refuse to do. But no matter how indifferent the universe may be to our choices and decisions these choices and decisions are ours to make. We decide. We choose. And as we decide and choose so are our lives formed. In the end forming our own destiny is what ambition is about.

A Johns Hopkins doctor says that we do not know why it is that the worriers die sooner than the non-worriers but that is a fact.

Therefore the need of faith is not something imposed on us dogmatically but it is written in us intrinsically. We cannot live without it. To live by worry is to live against Reality.

The real challenge that we face in our communications with others is to condition our hearts to have Christlike feelings for all of Heavenly Father's children. When we develop this concern for the condition of others we then will communicate with them as the Savior would. We will then warm the hearts of those who may be suffering in silence. As we meet people with special needs along life's way we can then make their journey brighter by the things that we say. Christlike communications will help us to develop righteous relationships and ultimately to return to our heavenly home safely. May we treasure the divine gift of communication and may we use it wisely to build and to assist others on this marvelous journey through mortality.

On December 12 1829 Paganini wrote his friend Germi: The variations Ive composed on the graceful Neapolitan ditty Oh Mamma Mama Cara outshine everything. I cant describe it! He was writing from Karlsruhe in the midst of his triumphal tour through Germany. That letter marks the earliest known mention of the variations that would become famous as The Carnival of Venice. At the time of his letter Paganini had already performed the piece in at least four concerts. From then on it would be one of his most popular compositions.

Obviously where art has it over life is in the matter of editing. Life can be seen to suffer from a drastic lack of editing. It stops too quick or else it goes on too long. Worse its pacing is erratic. Some chapters are little more than a few sentences in length while others stretch into volumes. Life for all its raw talent has little sense of structure. It creates amazing textures but it cant be counted on for snappy beginnings or good endings either. Indeed in many cases no ending is provided at all.

Bears: When you see a bear the spot where you see it becomes instantly different from every place else youve seen. Bears make you pay attention. They keep the mountains from turning into a blur.... A woods with a bear in it is real to a man walking through it in a way that a woods with no bear is not. Roscoe Black a man who survived a serious attack by a grizzly in Glacier National Park some years ago described the moment when the bear had him on the ground: He lay on me for a few seconds not doing anything.... I could feel his heart beating against my heart. The idea of that heart beating someplace just the other side of ours is what makes people read about bears and tell stories about bears and theorize about bears and argue about bears and dream about bears. Bears are one of the places in the world where big mysteries run close to the surface.

So this estate is given each of us to determine whether or not we will merit glory and honor for ever and ever or whether we will rebel and refuse or be indifferent and not comply with the conditions and the laws and the ordinances provided by a merciful Father for our guidance through life and our protection and our salvation and thereby by so doing deny ourselves the fabulous gift and blessing of eternal life.

Somewhere theres music how faint the tune.... Some tribal cultures believe that the act of creation takes place through music. They literally sing their homes their villages and their valleys into existence. They keep them strong and real regularly and ritually through music and belief. Its a little like prayer isnt it? Somewhere in the world someone is chanting their own universe into being right now. We modern folk are not so different from this. We speak of being in tune of needing harmony and rhythm to feel complete and alive. We create our own realities with our words and our songs our eyes and our hands. Each world is defined by our own outline the envelope of skin and nerves and light and air we inhabit. Every time we push against something we feel ourselves.

If one is looking for other definitions of point perhaps by means of paraphrase in terms of extensionless etc. then of course I would most decidedly have to oppose such an enterprise. One is then looking for something that can never be found for there is nothing there and everything gets lost becomes confused and vague and degenerates into a game of hide and seek.

Not just any talk is conversation; not any talk raises consciousness. Good conversation has an edge: it opens your eyes to something quickens your ears. And good conversation reverberates: it keeps on talking in your mind later in the day; the next day you find yourself still conversing with what was said. That reverberation afterward is the very raising of consciousness; your minds been moved. You are at another level with your reflections.

In the bottom of an old pond lived some grubs who could not understand why none of their groups ever came back after crawling up the stem of the lilies to the top of the water. They promised each other that the next one who was called to make the upward climb would return and tell what happened to him. Soon one of them felt an urgent impulse to seek the surface; he rested himself on top of a lily pad and went through a glorious transformation which made him a dragonfly with beautiful wings. In vain he tried to keep him promise. Flying back and forth over the pond he peered down at his friends below. Then he realized that if they could ever see him they would not recognize such a radiant creature as one of their number. The fact that we cannot see our friends or communicate with them after the transformation which we call death. is no proof that they cease to exit.

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? The day is almost over and its toiling time is through. Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you? Can you say tonight in parting with the day thats slipping fast That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does the man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead? Did you waste the day or lose it? Was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do You that that GOD will say You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it and he delights in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful it would not be worth knowing and if nature were not worth knowing life would not be worth living. Of course I do not here speak of that beauty that strikes the senses the beauty of qualities and appearances; not that I undervalue such beauty far from it but it has nothing to do with science; I mean that profounder beauty which comes from the harmonious order of the parts and which a pure intelligence can grasp.

The Constitution in addition to delegating certain enumerated powers to Congress places whole areas outside the reach of Congress' regulatory authority. The First Amendment for example is fittingly celebrated for preventing Congress from prohibiting the free exercise of religion or abridging the freedom of speech. The Second Amendment similarly appears to contain an express limitation on the government's authority....This Court has not had recent occasion to consider the nature of the substantive right safeguarded by the Second Amendment. If however the Second Amendment is read to confer a personal right to keep and bear arms a colorable argument exists that the Federal Government's regulatory scheme at least as it pertains to the purely intrastate sale or possession of firearms runs afoul of that Amendment's protections.

Oh how lovely was the morning! Radiant beamed the sun above. Bees were humming Sweet birds Singing Music ringing through the grove. When within the shady woodland Joseph sought the God of love. Humbly kneeling sweet appealing `Twas the boys first uttered prayer When the powers of sin assailing Filled his soul with deep despair; But undaunted still he trusted In his heavnly Fathers care. Suddenly a light descended. Brighter far than noon-day sun And a shining glorious pillar Oer him fell around him shone. While appeared two heavnly beings God the Father and the Son. `Joseph this is my beloved; Hear Him! Oh how sweet the word! Josephs humble prayer was answered And he listened to the Lord. Oh what rapture filled his bosom For he saw the living God.

By the same token the men who stand out in our history to whom we pay the highest homage are the men of personality principle and ideals who combining sympathy and good will with unbending loyalty to great truths defied the cynical spirit and wrought disinterestedly for the common good. By as much as Masonry creates such men and endows them with moral ideals by so much does it render its highest service to the country and the Craft.

Some time ago a member of my family sent to me a critical article written by Mr. Edmund Fuller in a publication called Saturday Review. The criticism of the writer is directed against the effort made to satisfy what the author designates as general religious hunger with books articles and public appearances of nationally advertised individuals carrying on a propaganda for what is characterized as (these are quotes) the good life peace of mind positive thinking and successful or confident living. What the author objects to most strenuously is not so much that propaganda should be issued for the optimism of peace of mind and positive thinking but that this psychological optimism should be held out in any form as an interpretation of or a substitute for the real Christian religion.

It takes more time and effort and delicacy to learn the silence of a people than to learn its sounds. Some people have a special gift for this.

Agency or the power to choose was ours as spirit children of our Creator before the world was. It is a gift from God nearly as precious as life itself. Often however agency is misunderstood. While we are free to choose once we have made those choices we are tied to the consequence of those choices. We are free to take drugs or not. But once we choose to use a habit-forming drug we are bound to the consequences of that choice. Addiction surrenders later freedom to choose.

There are many examples of old incorrect theories that stubbornly persisted sustained only by the prestige of foolish but well-connected scientists.... Many of these theories have been killed off only when some decisive experiment exposed their incorrectness. .. Thus the yeoman work in any science and especially physics is done by the experimentalist who must keep the theoreticians honest.

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide; When other helpers fail and comforts flee Help of the helpless O abide with me. Swift to its close ebbs out lifes little day; Earths joys grow dim its glories pass away; Change and decay in all around I see; O Thou Who changest not abide with me. I need Thy presence evry passing hour; What but Thy grace can foil the tempters powr? Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine O abide with me. I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless; Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness; Where is deaths sting? where grave thy victory? I triumph still if Thou abide with me. Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes; Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies; Heavns morning breaks and earths vain shadows flee; In life in death O Lord abide with me.

An artist wished to paint a face The symbol of innocence and joy; He sought a child for his ideal And drew the likeness of a boy. Long years passed on.

And painted a wretched man chained there Condemned to death for crime. Beside the other he placed the last; And when he learned the prisoners name He found the innocent laughing child And the hardened man were but the same. Montagu Gere

Organismic awareness is what we – on the Ego Level – ordinarily but clumsily refer to as seeing touching tasting smelling and hearing. But in its very purest form this sensual awareness is non–symbolic non–conceptual momentary consciousness. Organismic awareness is awareness of the Present only you cant taste the past smell the past see the past touch the past or hear the past. Neither can you taste smell see touch or hear the future. In other words organismic consciousness is properly timeless and being timeless it is essentially spaceless. Just as organismic awareness knows no past or future it knows no inside or outside no self or other. Thus pure organismic consciousness participates fully in the non–dual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

We cannot judge fully of men's works by what we see or what is said and thought of them; for man is prone to depreciate that which is really important and to exact and extol what is trivial and of little worth. Many things which are hidden and unrecognized of human wisdom are nevertheless valuable and vitally important.

One might have expected Christians to be less indifferent to the perils of casting the first stone. Here is a report from Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo the official chronicler of the Indies under Holy Roman Emperor Charles V: Upon arriving there since what they found to eat was so meager some of these Christians seeing themselves in extreme hunger killed an Indian they had captured and roasted the entrails and ate them; and they put a good part of the Indian to stew in a large pot in order to bring along something to eat in the ships boat in which those who did this were travelling.

Take a moment to assess all of the things around you that promote your being average. These are the things that keep you powerless to go beyond a limit you arbitrarily set for yourself. The first step to having what your really want is the removal of everything in your environment that represents mediocrity removing those things that are limiting.

It is especially important in this discussion to recognize the unity of the total process from that first unimaginable moment of cosmic emergence through all its subsequent forms of expression until the present. This unbreakable bond of relatedness that makes of the whole a universe becomes increasingly apparent to scientific observation although this bond ultimately escapes scientific formulation or understanding. In virtue of this relatedness everything is intimately present to everything else in the universe. Nothing is completely itself without everything else. This relatedness is both spatial and temporal. However distant in space or time the bond of unity is functionally there. The universe is a communion and a community. We ourselves are that communion become conscious of itself.

In other words the propositions of philosophy are not factual but linguistic in character that is they do not describe the behaviour of physical or even mental objects; they express definitions or the formal consequences of definitions. Accordingly we may say that philosophy is a department of logic. For we will see that the characteristic mark of a purely logical enquiry is that it is concerned with the formal consequences of our definitions and not with questions of empirical fact.

An IDEAL is a vision of the Ought-To-Be some good to be attained.... An ideal is a challenge to a better life. First we must see it in imagination; then we must long to make it a part of ourselves; then we shall guide our conduct by it we shall live it. An ideal is both light and power. It is light for conscience and motive-power for will. It is a standard by which we judge between right and wrong. When we see a noble ideal lived out in anothers life it gives us a holy discontent with ourselves until we make it our own and it makes more beautiful and strong our own character. This is the way of all progress as the world grows better for there is no progress without ideals....

That historians should give their own country a break I grant you; but not so as to state things contrary to fact. For there are plenty of mistakes made by writers out of ignorance and which any man finds it difficult to avoid. But if we knowingly write what is false whether for the sake of our country or our friends or just to be pleasant what difference is there between us and hack-writers? Readers should be very attentive to and critical of historians and they in turn should be constantly on their guard.

Doing for people what they can and ought to do for themselves is a dangerous experiment. In the last analysis the welfare of the workers depends upon their own initiative.

Let social busybodies and professional public morals experts in their fads reflect upon the perils they rashly invite under this pretense of social welfare.

Yet it was generous with the values that would shape my outlook and the compassion that would restore lifes richness after I had begun to doubt my future following the war. Ever since I have tried in my own way to give back some of what the town has given me. I have tried to defend and serve the America I learned to love in Russell.

Contingency embraced without any nostalgia or yearning for necessary truth yields a different quality of life than contingency assented to as necessarily so in the absence of any conceivable alternative.

Most of our conflicts and difficulties come from trying to deal with the spiritual and practical aspects of our life separately instead of realizing them as parts of one whole. If our practical life is centered on our own interests cluttered up by possessions distracted by ambitions passions wants and worries beset by a sense of our own rights and importance or anxieties for our own future or longings for our own success we need not expect that our spiritual life will be a contrast to all this. The souls house is not built on such a convenient plan; there are few soundproof partitions in it. Only when the conviction not merely the idea that the demand of the Spirit however inconvenient rules the whole of it will those objectionable noises die down which have a way of penetrating into the nicely furnished little oratory and drowning all the quieter voices by their din.

What we call yugen lies within the mind and cannot be expressed in words. Its quality may be suggested by the sight of a gauzy cloud veiling the moon or by the autumnal mists swathing the scarlet leaves on a mountainside. If one is asked where yugen can be found in these sights one cannot say; a man who cannot understand this truth is quite likely to prefer the sight of the moon shining brightly in a cloudless sky. It is quite impossible to explain wherein lies the interest or wonder of yugen.

Ere you lie down to sleep in the night sit still awhile and nurse again to life your gentler self. Forget the restless noisy spirit of the day and encourage to speech the soft voices within you that timidly whisper of the peace of the quiet night; and occasionally look out at the quiet stars. The night will soothe you like a tender mother folding you against her soft bosom and hiding you from the harm of the world. Though denied and rejected by men in the light of day the night will not reject you and in the still of her soft shadows you are free. After the day's struggle there is no freedom like unfettered thoughts no sound like the music of silence. And though behind you lies a road of dust and heat and discouragement and before you the challenge and uncertainty of untried paths in this brief hour you are master of all highways and the universe nestles in your soul.

Interview 26-June-2000 with Daniel Jaffe ... a writer and Reviews Editor for Classic CD the British classical music magazine. ... what is remarkable though is that he not only suggested that jazz was a worthwhile form of music to study but he also praised authentic American jazz ...... the implications of Prokofievs enthusiasm for jazz ... The strange colours of the so-called American Overture for instance with its honky-tonk piano sound and predominant brass and woodwind colours sounds to me like a take on the sound of a jazz combo though not using its rhythmic style. Jazzy harmonies unmistakably appear in Romeo and Juliet and in his so-called War sonatas. Basically its a ... subtle and subliminal influence. . Prokofiev took opportunities to hear jazz during his many tours through the States certainly he brought plenty of jazz records back to Russia.

The Myth of the Angry White Male What has sprung up is a strange kind of thinking.... Americans are unhappy with their lot. They are feeling insecure layoffs and corporate downsizing have made their future uncertain. Stirred up by talk radio the theory goes large numbers of formerly sensible people have embraced hate and extremism. Most of these according to the media are white guys. A Washington Post/ABC pre-election poll asked voters if they were angry about the way the federal government works. Four out of five white males said no. 62 percent of white men voted for Republican House candidates (38 percent for Democrats in 1994 a ten-point increase from the 1990 midterm elections). But was this special to their gender? In 1994 white women voted for Republican House candidates by a 55 to 45 percent majority. Significantly there isnt single article decrying angry white females.

You can't build a great company without great people. But how do you know them when you see them? Over the past few years a number of companies in a wide range of industries from airlines to steel computers to hotels have asked themselves what separates their winners from their losers good hires from bad and they all arrived at the same answer: what people know is less important than who they are. Hiring they believe is not about finding people with the right experience; it's about finding people with the right mind-set. These companies hire for attitude and train for skill.

For example one persons list of ten favorite sounds: a distant train whistle; a mother talking to her new baby; the scrunch of leaves on a bright autumn day; seagulls crying; a hound baying in the woods at night; the absolute silence of a mountain lake at sunset; a crackling fire on a bitter day; a stadium crowd singing the national anthem; the screech of an airplanes tires as they touch down; his wifes voice at morning. Try the exercise for favorite sounds smells or sights. You may learn something about yourself.

These various forms appear different in shape and size yet they are of a single essence.... The Sixth Patriarch called it essence of Mind... Here the Third Patriarch calls it timeless Self-essence. Bankei called it unborn Buddha-mind. They all refer to the same thing: Buddha-nature true self. This essence is not born and can never die. It exists eternally. Some call it energy; others call it spirit. But what is it? No one knows. Any concept we have of what it is can only be an analogy....

A woman today lives in perpetual conflict. She cannot slay the dragon of the unconscious without severing her own essential contact with it; without in fact destroying her feminine strength and becoming a mere pseudo-man. Her task is a peculiarly difficult one. She needs the focused consciousness her animus alone can give her yet she must not forsake her woman's role of mediator to man. Through a woman man finds his soul. She must never forget this. Through a woman not through a pseudo-man. Through man woman finds the animus who can express the soul she has never lost. Her burning need is to trust her own diffuse awareness to know what she knows and to learn to speak of it for until it is expressed she does not wholly know it.

It is no good making a fortune if you do not know how to enjoy it. Higher material standards are no good if you do not know how to use them for a better life. Economic ideals must include the ideal of beauty as well as the ideal of plenty. We want new capital far more capital than is being created today but we want it not only to advance material well-being but because we want a better and more beautiful life for the citizens.

Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood. If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts. Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move. Go very light on the vices such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain't restful. Avoid running at all times. Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.

Most people diffuse their psychic energy (attention) in hundreds of random ways. Those who flow focus their psychic energy intentionally upon the task at hand. It really boils down to knowing your goal concentrating upon it remaining determined and having the self-discipline to complete what you are doing.

A character standard is far more important than even a gold standard. The success of all economic systems is still dependent upon both righteous leaders and righteous people. In the last analysis our national future depends upon our national character that is whether it is spiritually or materially minded.

Much of the present difficulty in industrial relations arises from the fact that too many employers as well as too many legislators take the Labor Leader more seriously than he deserves to be taken while taking the ordinary everyday middle-of-the-road wage-earner less seriously than he deserves to be taken.

There is nothing like the first hot days of spring when the gardener stops wondering if its too soon to plant the dahlias and starts wondering if its too late. Even the most beautiful weather will not allay the gardeners notion (well-founded actually) that he is somehow too late too soon or that he has too much stuff going on or not enough. For the garden is the stage on which the gardener exults and agonizes out every crest and chasm of the heart.

We hear a good deal about business confidence which means confidence of business in itself in its government and in its capacity for expansion. But confidence is only another way of saying that people believe each other keep their promises pay their debts and regard their duty to society. As long as business observes these rules it will have the confidence of the community and it will be safe from all of the irresponsible attacks of its enemies.
