When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world. …Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I AM that is deeper than name and form.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.” “By three methods we may learn wisdom:
First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
Third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”
It requires wisdom to understand wisdom: the music is nothing if the audience is deaf.
True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
I’m posting this more for myself than anyone else. This is a song I heard for the first time last year and I tried for the longest to find it or who sang it. I could not remember enough about it to even pull it up online. Last night I heard it on the radio and I gathered enough information to go online and find out more about it. The song is called “What They See is What They’ll Be” by Kathleen Bertrand. It is a very laid back gospel tune but I’m more impressed by the lyrics than anything else. It speaks great wisdom to all of us as we live our lives. You never know whose life you’re impacting each and every day. There are so many people, especially these younger kids, who are so impressionable. Just as the chorus in the song says…”What They See Is What They’ll Be.”
What are you putting in place for them to see???
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
This morning’s sermon was about wisdom. The pastor spoke about seeking wisdom. I found this quote about wisdom online. It is by Oprah. This is what I call deep………..REAL DEEP…….and yet, it is quite simple.
“From every wound
There is a scar,
And every scar
Tells a story
A story that says
“I have survived”
“Turn your wounds
This quote simply says it all. Just don’t let your eyes deceive you…….
Billy Gilman covered Martina McBride’s “Anyway” tonight on “The Voice”and did an awesome job. The lyrics were so poignant that I had to hear the song again. I listened to Martina’s version and it is so remarkable that I just had to post it. Check it out, especially the lyrics. If you don’t feel like listening…… “Do It Anyway”!!!!!
