L is for Liberation

It is time to liberate yourself. Too often thoughts intrude during the day of should's, have to's, must's...these overwhelming demands that we put on ourselves in the complete service and devotion to others. Yet when it comes to taking care of our own health and happiness we are called selfish and self involved. Yet this … Continue reading L is for Liberation

K is for…

Knowledge. You thought I was going to write kindness. Everyone tells you to be kind, it should be inherent, not something you should be told...just do it. But knowledge...now there is a word. Many would tell you that knowledge is power, and it is, if used properly, but that is not the aim of this … Continue reading K is for…

J is for Judgement

We live in a society today that is encouraging people to embrace themselves and all that they are, while at the same time still holding on to a general consensus of social acceptability. This is true of everyone, young or old. While this is, of course, wonderful that society is beginning to change and become … Continue reading J is for Judgement

I is for Inspire

I feel that the internet today, especially social media, is flooded with some type of inspiring story of a person beating the odds against a struggle, that people become immune to the "inspiring" aspect of it. Does this mean the stories don't mean anything? No, absolutely not. However, it may be a good signal for … Continue reading I is for Inspire

H is for Humility

  Noun. The quality or condition of being humble; modest opinion or estimate of one's own importance,rank, etc. "Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real." Thomas Merton I think if the world took a step back, and changed how they look at things, added some humility, we could come to terms with the violence and degradation of each other enough to move past what has been done, … Continue reading H is for Humility

Cornstalks, Humming birds, and Sunrises

It is 6 am again. Up before the alarm. Tossed and turned all night so no chance for dreams or much sleeping. Usually this makes me a very cranky person, especially considering that I have another interview today for a retail position. There wasn't much chance to be cranky. The sunrise was a vibrant orange, … Continue reading Cornstalks, Humming birds, and Sunrises

G is for Gratitude

Are you grateful? Usually people only think once a year what they are "thankful" for, but do you remind yourself to think of the things you are grateful for? I know that I don't think of it everyday. There are a lot of things that I should be grateful for each day because I know … Continue reading G is for Gratitude

F is for Forgiveness

Sometimes the hardest thing to do in life is to forgive. Whether we are forgiving family, friends, or ourself, it can be very challenging. Moving on, forging through life, things will happen, we all make mistakes. Sometimes small, sometimes huge, mistakes will happen to everyone. It is the challenge of forgiving and moving on that … Continue reading F is for Forgiveness

Builders of Men

Everyone should read this! The Dalai Lama quote grabs your attention right away. I know that I want to live a life that I actually lived, instead of chasing the same piece of money day in and day out to no end. Great job KnowtheSphere! 😀

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered:

“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

The human is a complex organism. Within the sphere of humanity we find the extremes, the hyperextreme and the simple. In a bombardment of culture, information, mental delusion and idealism, we tend to lose the very quality that makes us so special. We render the spirit mute in all of our frivolous pursuits of desire, resulting in a despondence that we continually deny.

The Dalai Lama is very accurate in his statement…
