Channel: STOP!

Deep rift

" A human being is part of a whole: (called by us the Universe) partly limited in time and space.
We experience ourself, our thoughts our feelings, as something separated from the rest.
Kind of an optical delusion of consciousness; a kind of  prison restricting our personal desires.
This limits our affections for only a few persons nearest and dearest to us!  Our task must be:

To free ouselves from this limiting of prison by widening of circles of compassion;
To embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature... in its awe and beauty! "

 ~ Albert Einstein ~

 " Eleanor Roosevelt understood: that every one of us, every day,
 has choices to make about the kind of person we are,
 and what we wish to become?
 You can decide to be someone who brings people together,
 Or you can fall prey... to those who wish to divide us.
 You can be someone who educates yourself, 
Or you can believe that being negative is clever
 And being cynical is fashionable?
 You have a choice! "

Rippler's View

" Up there in the immensity of the Cosmos,
 An inescapable perception awaits us. 
National boundaries are not evident,
When we view the Earth from space.
Fanatical ethnic, religious or national chauvinisms
 Are a little difficult to maintain... when we see our planet
As a fragile blue orb fading to become an inconspicuous
Point of light__ against the bastion and citadel of the stars. "

aPeel for Light

“ You have only always to do what is right!
It will become easier by practice.
In the midst of your trials__ you will enjoy,
The pleasure of... an approving conscience. ”
The doctrines and miricals of out Savior have required nearly two thousand years
 to convert but a small portion of the human race, and even among Christian nations,
 what gross errors still exist!  While we see the course of the final abolition 
of human slavery is still onward, and give it the aid of our prayers,
 let us leave the progress as well as the results in the hands of Him,
 who chooses to work by slow influences, and with Him a thousand years
...are but as a single day." 
  Letter of General Lee's to President Pierce... prior to The War.
