Don't Ask Why Life is Not "Fair"


The less I take the difficulties of my life as personal affront,
and the more I use them as an opportunity to learn and grow...
the easier I sleep at night.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

"Why?" is the most useless question in the universe.
The only question with any meaning is "What?"
Asking "Why is this happening?" can only disempower you.
Asking "What do I want to make of this?" does exactly the opposite.
- Neale Donald Walsch

Nature is relentless and unchangeable,
and it is indifferent as to whether its hidden reasons
and actions are understandable to man or not.
- Galileo Galilei

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."
Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.
Demanding that life meet our expectations
is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence.
Life is a game with no rules.
Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions.
Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Solitude vs. Loneliness


Language... has created the word "loneliness"
to express the pain of being alone.
And it has created the word "solitude"
to express the glory of being alone.
- Paul Tillich

I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.
We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men
than when we stay in our chambers.
- Henry David Thoreau

When you are lonely you are thinking of the other,
you are missing the other.
Loneliness is a negative state...
Aloneness is the presence of oneself.
Aloneness is very positive.
- Osho

If you are lonely when you're alone, you are in bad company.
- Jean-Paul Sartre

Loneliness is not what it seems.
One does not feel lonely because one is alone,
but because of a feeling of lack -
a feeling that something is missing.
Loneliness is essentially independent
of how many other humans are around.
It has much more to do with one's self-esteem -
one's sense of inherent worth.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Make a Difference, Vote


Act as if what you do makes a difference.
It does.
- William James


The 4th Tuesday of each September is National Voter Registration Day in the United States.
If you aren't already registered to vote, PLEASE do it TODAY.
Your vote is your voice (and your civic duty).
Please vote in every local and national election and primary.

In many places, every voter is eligible to vote by mail.
Request your vote-by-mail ballot and vote now.

We must remember that one determined person can make
a significant difference,
and that a small group of determined people
can change the course of history.
- Sonia Johnson

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold
is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
- Thomas Jefferson

Voting is an expression of three key life principles -
CHOICE, INTENT, and ACTION.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Have Faith that God will do what is Right


Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want.
It is the belief that God will do what is right.
- Max Lucado

A person who is fanatic in matters of religion,
and clings to certain ideas about the nature of God and the universe,
becomes a person who has no faith at all.
- Alan Watts

I don't doubt God. I have firm faith absolutely in God.
It's religion I'm doubting.
- Bono

(Bono is deeply influenced by the Northern Ireland "Troubles," the 1968-1998 civil war
between Protestant Christians and Catholic Christians in which thousands were killed.)

Nothing is so firmly believed as what is least known.
- Michel de Montaigne

What does it profit, my brethren,
if someone says he has faith but does not have works?
Can faith save him?
- James 2:14

The faith that stands on authority is not faith.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

To know a person's religion
we need not listen to his profession of faith
but must find his brand of intolerance.
- Eric Hoffer

Being of Service


Find out how much God has given you
and from it take what you need;
the remainder is needed by others.
- Saint Augustine

Show me your hands.
Do they have scars from giving?
Show me your feet.
Are they wounded in service?
Show me your heart.
Have you left a place for divine love?
- Fulton J. Sheen (Archbishop)

Let us touch the dying, the poor,
the lonely and the unwanted
according to the graces we have received
and let us not be ashamed
or slow to do the humble work.
- Mother Teresa

God expects us to care for His world -
to clean up our sewage and our industrial pollution -
to respect His forests and His wild animals.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
