Higher Thought


"Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius."

Edgar Cayce

"Soul development should take precedence over all things."

Mother's Day

I honor you mother for all that I am,  all that I am not and all I hope to be. ~ Charlene Ryan

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a date of great importance for the Mexican and Chicano communities. It marks the victory of the Mexican Army over the French at the Battle of Puebla. Although the Mexican army was eventually defeated, the "Batalla de Puebla" came to represent a symbol of Mexican unity and patriotism. With this victory, Mexico demonstrated to the world that Mexico and all of Latin America were willing to defend themselves of any foreign intervention. Especially those from imperialist states bent on world conquest.

Richard Bach "Illusions"

"Don't be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends."

As Cyrano Rhymes

And what is a kiss, specifically? A pledge properly sealed, a promise seasoned to taste, a vow stamped with the immediacy of a lip, a rosy circle drawn around the verb "to love." (A kiss is a rosy dot over the 'i' of loving.) A kiss is a message too intimate for the ear, infinity captured in the bee's brief visit to a flower, secular communication with an aftertaste of heaven, the pulse rising from the heart to utter its name on a lover's lip: 'Forever.' Act 3, pg. 97

N. Sri Ram "Thoughts for Aspirants"

"What man really seeks is not perfection which is in the future, but fulfillment which is ever in the present."

Lanny Henninger

"Following the course of least resistance makes for crooked rivers and crooked men."

Abu Sa'id (Essential Sufism)

Whatever you have in your mind - forget it;
Whatever you have in your hand - give it;
Whatever is to be your fate - face it.

Learning and Having Fun

"You are either learning, or having fun, so if you are not having fun, LEARN FAST." ~ Christine
