Some special quotes to ponder...
Enlightenment, peace and joy will not be granted by someone else. The WELL is within us and if we dig DEEPLY in the present moment, the water will SPRING forth.
--Thich Nhat Hanh
A Cherokee Feast of Days
by Joyce Sequichie Hifler
Whatever our age, a child still lives within us. We are innocent in ways we do not understandstand we find great contentment in having no need to know all and be all. Hope lives in the inner child that is aware and guileless. Befriend this childlike part of yourself. Lean back into this--the most real part of yourself--and pray.
Little things make us who we are: what we say to ourselves in the privacy of our own minds, what we believe about ourselves, and what we see as important. This little child within us is important. We are who we are because of our choices, and some of our smallest choices have the greatest influence. Listen to the child within, and you will be guided well in the choices you make.
"All are made by the same Great Spirit Chief." -- Chief Joseph, Nez Perce
and one of my favorites from this same book (under April 26th):
Gardening keeps us close to the earth. When we are good planters and good caretakers, we see results--not once, but many times and in many ways. The garden we walk in more than any other is the one closest to us--the garden of our minds. What are we planting there? What we hear, what we read, what we say--these all plant ideas in our minds. Every area of life reflects the beautiful colors and fragrances of what we think and talk about--because our words plant flowers or weeds. What will you plant today?
"Watch your words, they will come true." -- Essie Sequichie, Cherokee
Special blessings to those "reading me" ... I will strive to think the highest and best.
