Enjoy What You Do Have


Life is not about perfection -
or a quest for perfection.
Life is about enjoying what we have -
for as long as we have it.
Life must not be about regretting what we do not have.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is a song - sing it.
Life is a game - play it.
Life is a challenge - meet it.
Life is a dream - realize it.
Life is a sacrifice - offer it.
Life is love - enjoy it.
- Sai Baba

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness,
and the word happy would lose its meaning
if it were not balanced by sadness.
It is far better take things as they come along
with patience and equanimity.

Some Days...


Although it is always better to live with conviction and enthusiasm,
some days it is better just to go through the motions than to do nothing.

Walk or exercise even when the thought doesn't excite you.

Approach Life with a Light Heart



Life is too important to be taken seriously.
- Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was a writer, playwright, humorist, satirist,
and astute observer of the human condition.
What does he mean by, "Life is too important to be taken seriously?"
Is it just a simple joke?

"Serious" can mean thoughtful, careful and profound,
but it also can mean unsmiling, grim, and humorless.

I am inclined to paraphrase Wilde as...
Life is too valuable to spend time not being lighthearted.

Dance lightly with life today and every day.
Life is too short not to be joyful and celebrate each day.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Seriousness is a sickness; your sense of humor
makes you more human, more humble.
The sense of humor - according to me -
is one of the most essential parts of religiousness.
- Osho

Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world.
Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak.
Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor,
and your picture begins to lighten up.
- Allen Klein

Smile.
Today would be a wonderful day
not to take life so seriously.
Today may end up the way you prefer -
and it may not.
Happiness is not about being a winner -
it's about being gentle with life -
being gentle with yourself.
Let life be a dance,
and choose the kind of
dance you want for today -
perhaps a gentle loving dance.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more,
do more and become more, you are a leader.
- John Quincy Adams

Leaders are those who empower others.
- Bill Gates

A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is amazing how much you can accomplish

than any words of instruction, or threats,
or even words of encouragement.

Find God In Peaceful Silence


We need to find God, and he cannot
be found in noise and restlessness.

We need silence to be able to touch souls.

Silence is a source of great strength.

Let Your Faith Overcome Your Anxiety


All times are times of crisis. Wars, earthquakes, diseases, floods and murders have been constant companions of humankind from the beginning. 300,000 people die each and every single day. Yet against this backdrop, the magnificence of human accomplishment, human love and compassion, and great human happiness plays out each day. Let us marvel, and have infinite gratitude for, the human spirit that towers above the circumstances in which we find ourselves.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Every tomorrow has two handles.
We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety

Selfless Service

A hero to me is someone who saves people
and who really deeply cares.

One thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy
are those who will have sought and found how to serve.

are strengthened and empowered to help.
We can help each other to all be winners.
We can all have food, and jobs, and love, and happiness.

Easter Sunday 2020


The great gift of Easter is hope -
Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God,
in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love,
which nothing can shake.
- Basil C. Hume

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection,

On this day, let us affirm the core values of unconditional love of all humans and an uncompromising commitment to caring for all who are sick, infirm, or troubled - as expressed in the biblical story of the Good Samaritan. (Read more on Loving your enemies, the Golden Rule, and the parable of The Good Samaritan)

wiser and braver use of the reason,

Doubt and mistrust are the mere panic of timid imagination,
which the steadfast heart will conquer,
and the large mind will transcend.

The Paradox of Great Truths


There are trivial truths and there are great truths.
The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false.
The opposite of a great truth is also true.
- Niels Bohr

Niels Bohr, the great Danish physicist who received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922 for his fundamental contributions to the understanding of atomic structure and quantum mechanics, is making a point that is very Zen - or very Taoist if one prefers.

An example of a "great truth" for which the opposite is also true is the statement, "You are not your body; you are not your mind." While it is very true, if one so believes, that the "real you" is neither physical nor mental, it is simultaneously true that your body and your mind are very real, and ignoring their reality is likely to cause great suffering.

Another example of a "great truth" is the Golden Rule. It is true that we should treat others as we wish to be treated in the sense of being kind and compassionate to everyone. Yet the opposite of the Golden Rule is also true in the sense that it is kind and compassionate to recognize that everyone is called to a different life path and to honor those differences.

[As always, the purpose of these daily messages to provide something to think about, rather than to attempt to dictate conclusions.]

No statement should be believed because it is made by an authority.
- Robert A. Heinlein

Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past,
threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible.
- Maya Angelou

The more opinions you have, the less you see.
- Wim Wenders

The words of truth are always paradoxical.

Imagine What You Could Accomplish



Imagine what you could accomplish if you enrolled others into your dream.
The world changes when people of vision and commitment
create an infectious enthusiasm for their ideas.
What is your great idea whose time has come?

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed people can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
- Margaret Mead

Idealism detached from action is just a dream.
But idealism allied with pragmatism,
with rolling up your sleeves and making the world bend a bit,
is very exciting.
It's very real.
It's very strong.

Time to Say, Enough is Enough


Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
- Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Tennyson's poem The Charge of the Light Brigade, from which the "valley of death" lines come, describes a fatal and futile 1854 cavalry charge during the forgettable Crimean War. You can read the whole poem at www.dancelightly.com/valley-death.php

What is the proper balance between individual responsibility and blindly following the orders of an authority? When has the time come to say, enough is enough?

There are times, sir, when men of good conscience
cannot blindly follow orders.
The claim "I was only following orders" has been used
to justify too many tragedies in our history.
