The Sands of Forgiveness
By Author Unknown
A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some
point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other
one in the face.
The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the
sand:
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.
They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a
bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started
drowning, but the friend saved him.
After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone:
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.
The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, "After I
hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?"
The other friend replied "When someone hurts us we should write it down in
sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does
something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever
erase it."
LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE.

Be Quiet

Have you ever wondered why libraries have special atmospheres? They
are places where many congregate but where silence is the code.
Quietness in an atmosphere means there is the presence of quiet
minds, and quiet minds are not only relaxed, they can concentrate
easily and create more freely. Imagine you are in the library of your
mind, browsing the accumulated wisdom on the shelves of your life -
listen to the silence, be aware of the stillness. Now you can really
listen. Now you can really hear. Now you can really think. Now you
can create. And behold, you are an artist. Did you not know that
silence and creativity are lovers?

hey robin these are great thoughts, I love the way you think.     I like quiet in the morning when I get into my writting mode. i understand how when you are reading or creating you need quietness, to think. thank you again. I guess alot of people dont get deep like some people.
