Wisdom from Past Era . . . The Incas were highly developed spiritually.




“The Incas were highly developed spiritually. They felt at home in the simple stone houses.
…each Inca happily contributed his share, so that their descendants could live in safety. They no longer questioned what kind of danger threatened them, but continued working untiringly to fulfill the mission…”

~ (The Truth About the Incas – Roselis von Sass)

What Do Angels Look Like?




‘What Do Angels Look Like?
Like the little old lady who returned your wallet yesterday.
Like the taxi driver who told you that your eyes light up the world when you smile.
Like the small child who showed you the wonder in simple things.
Like the poor man who offered to share his lunch with you.
Like the rich man who showed you that it really is all possible, if only you believe.
Like the stranger who just happened to come along when you had lost your way.
Like the friend who touched your heart, when you didn’t think you had one.
Angels come in all sizes and shapes, all ages and skin types.
Some with freckles, some with dimples, some with wrinkles, some without.
They come disguised as friends, enemies, teachers, students, lovers and fools.
They don’t take life too seriously, they travel light.
They leave no forwarding address, they ask nothing in return.
They are hard to find when your eyes are closed, but when you choose to see, they are everywhere you look.
So, open you eyes and count all your Angels — for you are truly blessed!

Cats have it all!




“It is a difficult matter to gain the affection of a cat.
He is a philosophical, methodical animal, tenacious of his own habits,
fond of order and neatness, and disinclined to extravagant sentiment.
He will be your friend, if he finds you worthy of friendship,
but not your slave.”

~ Thophile Gautier

#FridayFantasy . . . We can all be Angels to one another.





We can all be Angels to one another.
We can choose to obey the still small stirring within,
the little whisper that says:
“Go. Ask. Reach out.
Be an answer to someone’s plea.
You have a part to play.
Have faith.”….
The world will be a better place for it.
And wherever they are, the Angels will dance.
