Thank you’s and a list of 100 songs: a beautiful, thoughtful shout out and great musical list too. Check it out.

“Music is a higher revelation
than all wisdom and philosophy.
Music is the electrical soil
in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.”
~ Ludwig van Beethoven ~

After effects of Hurricane Sandy: an experience that most of us pray never to have. I love knowing things, but I’ll pass on this one.

Diversity no. 1…Every day beautiful people #67

“It’s time for parents to teach young people early on, that in diversity, there’s beauty and there’s strength.” Maya Angelou

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” Nelson Mandela

The World is made beautiful by its diversity. We must learn to embrace the fact that others are different and have a right to be.

We should never allow the evil antics of misguided few to dictate how we relate as humans.

As you can imagine, like so many people, the recurring events going on around the World leads my mind down the path of ‘tolerance.’

“Tolerance is giving every other human being every right that you claim for yourself.” Robert Ingersoll

“Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.” Dalai Lama

When we tolerate each other despite our differences, we give room for peace and life.

Awesome thoughts come your way through these beautiful friends:

Killing each other: this is a thoughtful poem from Rosema filled with unanswered questions that have been dancing in our minds. Please read.

The burden of hate: short truth from Dollops of heedful rambling. Letting go is to rise and live.

I hope that you find these little drops useful now and again. Do check them out and please share snippets of your thoughts with us.

Thanks and blessed be.

Out of the silent breath

Perfect? No, not I…

Man

Certainly, I know that I am not perfect,

And that is perfectly alright.

Neither are you, or you and you!

Human flaws are characteristics we all share in common.

Some flaws are deeply entrenched,

Like the mandatory make up stripes on a zebra,

While some flaws are momentarily switched on,

As changeable as a flash bulb.

Some give it a posh title – eccentric, uniqueness, schizophrenic, deficient, myopic …and so on,

Or the simpler names – faults, shortcomings, intolerance, and so on. …

I call it exposing your humanity,

You being who you are.

In each of us, exists a beauty and a beast,

Like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,

It all depends on which side of your humanity you choose to expose.

In each of us exists a redeeming quality,

As minutiae as it may be.

Consider the good qualities of a man,

Weighed against his faulty sides,

And judge his character based on that which outweighs the other.

Let us bear with each other,

For the fault lies in our differences,

And none of us is above such criticism.

Don’t spend too much time dwelling on those flaws,

Life is too short to waste on things that cannot change,

But by all means, change the flashbulbs as often as you can,

For better illumination on the path of your journey,

Your final destination will be worth the effort.
