Before I ask you to sit with me,



 

“Before I ask you to sit with me, I must be able to sit with myself. 
Before I ask you to accept my pain, I have to accept the pain myself. 
Before I ask you to love me, I have to be madly in love with myself.” 


– C. Thoth

“Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”

“I used to walk into a room full of people and wander if they liked me….
now I look around and wonder if I like them”

You just can’t please everyone!

juiciest peach in the world,

The mark of true nobility!

Wilhelm_Gause_006

“Truly powerful people have great humility.
They do not try to impress, they do not try to be influential.
They simply are. People are magnetically drawn to them.
They are most often very silent and focused, aware of their core selves. …
They never persuade, nor do they use manipulation or aggressiveness to get their way. They listen.
If there is anything they can offer to assist you, they offer it;
if not, they are silent.”

― Sanaya Roman, Living with Joy: Keys to Personal Power and Spiritual Transformation

Blog Awards are like Hugs; they deserve some appreciation!

Awards are like hugs and nominations are like out-stretched arms for a warm embrace! Once someone offers you one, courtesy demands that you also reach out or, at least, tone it down to a handshake; unless, you have serious issues with the person!
I would consider it an embarrassment if my open arms are ignored or spurned! Unfortunately, there’s hardly a month I do not ignore nominations from my friends which, if you ask me, smacks of embarrassing them! I got the sad hint last week when a friend nominated me and was full of appreciation for my work, only to end on the sober note:
“If you don’t accept it, I’ll understand”!
That triggered an alarm bell! I could immediately recall that this was not the first nomination from this guy and, this was not the tone of a happy friend! I’m therefore going back to the early days of this blog! Every single nomination will be acknowledged with a thank-you post and a partial fulfillment of the award conditions! Partial, since I may not send out nominations because I’ve lost count of my “No awards here, please” friends out there!
Rather, I’d use the opportunity to honor friends who as beacons of light and enlightenment, are breathing positive energies into the hearts of their fellow humans and the entire Universe through their blogs! With few words and images these bloggers who resonate with the vibrations of the Light in Creation, have spread more wisdom, blessings and inspiration than many a pulpit and temple…..freely without an ‘offering’ box for appreciation! The least I can do is mention them in special dedications!
So, if every now and then you find thank-you posts and, if they appear too frequent for your comfort, please bear with me! Like I said, awards are long distance hugs and like sincere friendly hugs they transmit pure energy and engender good, uplifting feelings! The least I can do is show appreciation!
