Wisdom from Lesley Rodgers

Learn to accept and love all things; sure, see what’s different but remember what’s similar!

True personal empowerment comes from balance.

Each one of us has value and a purpose on this earth – make it your life-mission to discover your middle path of tolerance, moderation and compassion; learning and loving en route.

We are all a basic model (no matter the species) who breath, feel, need, etc. Having said that, our own special gifts (we all have something unique to offer) help make use of our diversity when understood, accepted and incorporated into the oneness with all things, creating the balance necessary for survival. Heavy stuff!
