What a beautiful image! This energy flows constantly through each of us and joins us in ways that we are unable to explain. The wonderful thing is, we have no reason to do so. As Martha says, it is up to each of us to "keep the channel open."

Simon

This is a very pertinent quote for me, Liara, because for too long I've been allowing self-doubt to get in the way. It's very easy to ask "Is what I'm doing good enough?" or "Should I be doing something else?" Such questions only get in the way. They close that channel down. If we find something we truly enjoy doing, something that gets us 'in the zone', truly in the moment, than we just have to trust we are where we should be, doing what is 'right' for us to do.

Hello Simon,

I also wrote about this subject in my last post. It seems some themes want expression on the blogosphere and we bloggers are connected to this mystery that writes these blogs that we host! When we really think of it, "there is only one of me in all time" the perfection of this life is astounding.

I too will keep this quote in my heart for 2009.

May you come to know your highest expression of yourself!

Simon

Many thanks for calling and for your good wishes, Miruh! And now you have got me thinking about it, 'there is only one of me in all time' has more than one meaning, doesn't it? We are each a unique expression of the Divine - so there is only one of us in that sense, which I think is the one that Martha Graham intended. But I believe it is also true that we are all One. So once again, there is only One of us in all time. Wow...

Some Favorite Quotes

  • "The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone like us to come along - people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. It is overwhelming to consider the numerous opportunities there are to make our love felt." - Leo Bascaglia
  • "Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm." - Sir Winston Churchill
  • "My life has been filled with terrible misfortunes, most of which never happened." - Michel de Montaigne
  • "Take any fear. Call it out. Actually make an appointment: I'll meet you face to face to get this settled once and for all at 'such-n-such' time. Tell it you'll even meet it in its own space: a dark room. And you'll find nothing will ever come to meet you..." - Sue Ann Edwards
  • "Your mind is the interference to experiencing the bliss of this moment." - Dr Joe Vitale
  • "A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive." - Albert Einstein
