    Moving Forward- A poem

    In an effort to discover who we are meant to be
    We must all travel many paths
    Some long, and some short
    People join and tag along
    While others only follow momentarily
    In this changing world it is difficult to know where the paths will take us
    And yet we are compelled to follow each as far as it will go
    Through pain and suffering
    Hurt and hardship
    We continue
    Hoping for better days
    Where living is effortless
    Life isn't about winning the race though
    It's about meeting people, making friends
    Living, and loving, and losing
    Sadly nothing in this life is permanent
    And the people who believe it is are just deluding themselves
    We must make the best of what and who we have in our lives
    And never take these things for granted
    Our friends and enemies make us the people we are today
    And without them we would have nothing
    We need their encouragement and discouragement
    Help and hindrance, love and hatred
    To continue along these paths
    We cannot move forward without both wins and losses
    These things make us stronger, more resistant
    If life was easy it wouldn't be worth living
    The challenges make it interesting, they make us try
    They make us fight for the things we love in order to keep them
    But some of those those things will never last
    They fade into the darkness all too quickly
    Into the depths of memory to be treasured or forgotten
    Lost behind us on the path to be found by others
    Hoping they will be treasured as we once treasured them
    Memories change, feelings fade, and we are forced to let go of things we once held dear
    We can't let these things hold us back
    Because if we never move forward we will never be happy
    And happiness is the goal of all
    If you are happy with where you are in life, enjoy it
    It may last, or it may not
    Just keep traveling, and living, and learning, and loving until the end.

    Lightbulb Re: Friends

    Greetings my Friends,

    Some food for your thoughts~

    Power vs Force

    "Power arises from meaning. It has to do with motive, and it has to do with principle. Power is always associated with that which supports the significance of life itself. It appeals to that part of human nature that we call noble~ in contrast to force, which appeals to that which we call crass. Power appeals to what uplifts, dignifies, and ennobles. Force must always be justified, whereas power requires no justification. Force is associated with partial, power with the whole."

    Force always moves against something, whereas power doesn't move against anything at all. Force is incomplete and therefor has to be fed constantly. Power is total and complete in itself and requires nothing from outside. It makes no demands: it has no needs. Because force has an insatiable appetite, it constantly consumes. Power, in contrast, energizes, gives forth, supplies, and supports. Power gives life and energy~ force takes these away. we notice that power is associated with compassion and makes us feel positively about ourselves. Force is associated with judgment and makes us feel poorly about ourselves.

    Force always creates counter force; its effect is to polarize rather than unify. Polarization always implies conflict; its cost, therefore, is always high. Because force incites polarization, it inevitably produces a win/lose dichotomy; and because somebody always loses, enemies are created. Constantly faced with enemies, force requires constant defense. Defensiveness is invariably costly, whether in the marketplace, politics, or international affairs.

    In looking for the source of power, we've noted that it is associated with meaning, and this meaning has to do with significance of life itself. Force is concrete, literal, and arguable. It requires proof and support. The sources of power, however, are inarguable and aren't subject to proof. The self-evident isn't arguable. That health is more important than disease, that life is more important than death, that honor is preferable to dishonor, that faith and trust are preferable to doubt and cynicism, that the constructive is preferable to the destructive~ all are self-evident statements not subject to proof. Ultimately, the only thing we can say about a source of power is that it just "is".

    Every civilization is characterized by native principles. If principles of a civilization are noble, it succeeds; if they're selfish, it fails. as a term, principles may sound abstract, but the consequences of principle are quite concrete. If we examine principles, we'll see that they reside in an invisible realm within consciousness itself. Although we can point out examples of honesty in the world, honesty itself as an organizing principle central to civilization does not independently exist anywhere in the external world. True power, then, emanates from consciousness itself;
    what we see is a visible manifestation of the invisible."

    from~ "Power vs. Force"

    The Prayer (duet With Andrea Bocelli) lyrics

    ( by Carol Bayer Sager/David Foster)

    I pray you'll be our eyes, and watch us where we go.
    And help us to be wise in times when we don't know
    Let this be our prayer, when we lose our way
    Lead us to the place, guide us with your grace
    To a place where we'll be safe
    La luce che tu hai
    [I pray we'll find your light]
    Nel cuore resterà
    [And hold it in our hearts.]
    A ricordarci che
    [When stars go out each night,]
    Eterna stella sei
    Nella mia preghiera
    [Let this be our prayer]
    Quanta fede c'è
    [When shadows fill our day]
    Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace
    Give us faith so we'll be safe
    Sogniamo un mondo senza più violenza
    Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
    Ognuno lo dia la mano al suo vicino
    Simbolo di pace, di fraternità
    La forza che ci dà
    [We ask that life be kind]
    È il desiderio che
    [And watch us from above]
    Ognuno trovi amor
    [We hope each soul will find]
    Intorno e dentro sé
    [Another soul to love]
    Let this be our prayer [Let this be our prayer],
    Just like every child
    Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
    Give us faith so we'll be safe
    È la fede che
    Hai acceso in noi,
    Sento che ci salverà
