Counterpoint to the Clamor


May your life always be Counterpoint to the Clamor of the World.
May you delight in Dancing Lightly With Life.
May you soar on eagle wings, high above the madness of the world.
May you always sing Melody in the Symphony of Your Life.
May you taste, smell, and touch your dreams of a beautiful tomorrow.
May your sun always shine, and your sky be forever blue.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The world clamors, "Do more! Be all that you can be!"
But our Father whispers, "Be still and know that I am God."

It offers me its busyness.
It does not believe that I do not want it.

- Jack Kornfield

Today's affirmation:
I am Counterpoint to the Clamor of the World.

Honor and love all of your unique self


Willingly accept the complexity and the contradictions of life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Actions are always more complex and nuanced than they seem.
We have to be willing to wrestle with paradox in pursuing understanding.
- Harold Evans

there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.
- H. L. Mencken

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize
how little we understand about life,
ourselves, and the world around us.
- Socrates

I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma,
a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own
mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
- Umberto Eco


You didn't get stamped out of a mold. You aren't a "black person" or a "white person," a "fat person" or a "skinny person," a "bad person" or a "good person." You are a highly complex human being with emotions, beliefs, capabilities. Each day you face challenges to your health, relationships, finances, and world-view -- and every day you respond to those challenges in ways which are unique to you.

Honor and love all of your unique self. Never diminish yourself with self-applied labels or categorizations.

The Difficult Choice for Joy

in the face of any event - for joy.
