Welcome-To-My-Page
I would like to share this with everyone. It's from Robert Green Ingersoll - 'America's Great Agnostic' - and nicely sums up my own outlook:


My Belief
By Robert G. Ingersoll

"I do not believe that any man can be justly punished or rewarded on account of his belief.

But I do believe in the nobility of human nature; I believe in love and home, and kindness and humanity; I believe in good fellowship and cheerfulness, in making wife and children happy.

I believe in good nature, in giving to others all the rights that you claim for yourself.

I believe in free thought, in reason, observation and experience. I believe in self-reliance and in expressing your honest thought. I have hope for the whole human race. What will happen to one, will, I hope, happen to all, and that, I hope, will be good.

Above all, I believe in Liberty."









Advice from a Tree

Advice from a Tree
By Ilan Shamir



Dear Friend,




Stand Tall and Proud

Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings

Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter



Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night.
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Simple pleasures
Earth, fresh air, light




Be content with your natural beauty

Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Be flexible



Remember your roots

Enjoy the view!









TREES

By Harry Behn


Trees are the kindest things I know,

They do no harm, they simply grow

And spread a shade for sleepy cows,

And gather birds among their bows.


They give us fruit in leaves above,

And wood to make our houses of,

And leaves to burn on Halloween

And in the Spring new buds of green.


They are first when day's begun

To touch the beams of morning sun,

They are the last to hold the light

When evening changes into night.


And when a moon floats on the sky

They hum a drowsy lullaby

Of sleepy children long ago...

Trees are the kindest things I know.


 


















"Is it really just a footrace between the dark and the light? Is it all just a dumb battle between peace and violence, good versus evil, our greedy, self-destructive nature versus our mad desire to love and celebrate existence and kiss the lips of our beloved just one more time?

Nope. Not really. It's more of a sly evolutionary tango. It's a hallucinogenic, ever-shifting kaleidoscope made of awe and light and manufactured time. There is no battle. There is no good versus evil. There is only the flux and the pulse of existence, creation, expansion and contraction in an endless dance, signifying nothing, inventing everything."
