Love has to spring spontaneously from within and it is no way amenable to any form of inner or outer force. Love and coercion can never go together; but though love cannot be forced on anyone, it can be awakened in him through love itself. Love is essentially self communicative; those who do not have it catch it from those who have it. True love is unconquerable and irresistible, and it goes on gathering power and spreading itself, until eventually it transforms everyone whom it touches. -Meher Baba

"H" is for her heart of purest gold;

Success
To laugh often and much;  to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;  to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;  to appreciate beauty;  to find the best in others;  to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;  to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.  This is to have succeeded.

A Matter Of Energy

We now experience that we live not in a material universe, but in a universe of dynamic energy. Everything extant is a field of sacred energy that we can sense and intuit. Moreover, we humans can project our energy by focusing our attention in the desired direction...where attention goes, energy flows...influencing other energy systems and increasing the pace of coincidences in our lives. -James Redfield "Celestine Prophecy-Insights"

The Longer Now

This awakening represents the creation of a new, more complete worldview, which replaces a five-hundred-year-old preoccupation with secular survival and comfort. While this technological preoccupation was an important step, our awakening to life's coincidences is opening us up to the real purpose of human life on this planet, and the real nature of our universe.  -James Redfield "Celestine Prophecy-Insights"

A poet is an unhappy being whose heart is torn by secret sufferings, but whose lips are so strangely formed that when the sighs and the cries escape them, they sound like beautiful music... and then people crowd about the poet and say to him: "Sing for us soon again;" that is as much as to say, "May new sufferings torment your soul."

A Month of Poems

My poetry is quite diverse.
Some are prose and some are verse.
Some are good, some not so bad.
But, no one cares, and that is sad.
My poems could be better or worse.
It won't put scratch into my purse.
But, write I do. Gives me a thrill.
The month of poems is the month, April.

freedom

The condition of being free of restraints.
Liberty of the person from slavery, detention, or oppression.  

Frankness or boldness; lack of modesty or reserve: the new freedom in art and life.

The right to unrestricted use; full access...  
  
A right or the power to engage in certain actions without control or interference:

"the seductive freedoms and excesses of the picaresque form" John W. Aldridge.

...the power to act, speak, or think without externally imposed restraints.

"In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free" Abraham Lincoln.

..the power of free choice: "liberty, perfect liberty, to think, feel, do just as one pleases" William Hazlitt.

.."deliberate deviation from normally applicable rules or practices to achieve a desired effect" poetic art.

Sorry that I haven't replied to this. I was thinking about it, but after, lo, these many years reading students' poetry, I do not think that I want to subject myself to that torture. It can really set one's teeth on edge. I am presently editing a book by our Dead Poets' Society and the students do not want to edit or revise anything so I just close my eyes to cut and paste. If I could critique them and help them, that would be another story.  I'll give this a pass for now and maybe consider helping later.

I am easily attained by the person who always remembers me and is attached to nothing else. Such a person is a true yogi, Arjuna. Great souls make their lives perfect and discover me; they are freed from morality and the suffering of this separate existence. Every creature in the universe is subject to rebirth, Arjuna, except the one who is united with me.

And the Yellow Rose of Texas

A ritual is the enactment of a myth. And, by participating in the ritual, you are participating in the myth. And since myth is a projection of the depth wisdom of the psyche, by participating in a ritual, participating in the myth, you are being, as it were, put in accord with that wisdom, which is the wisdom that is inherent within you anyhow. Your consciousness is being re-minded of the wisdom of your own life.

Post by: witt on September 25, 2005, 09:35 AM
I have always heard the story of "Taps" this way. Thanks to yellow airplane .com, I got the same story.

We have all heard the haunting song, "Taps." 
It's the song that gives us that lump in our throats 
and usually creates tears in our eyes. 
But, do you know the story behind the song? 
If not, I think you will be delighted to
find out about its humble beginnings.
 It all began in 1862 during the Civil War, when 
Union Army Captain Robert Ellicombe 
was with his men near Harrison's Landing in Virginia. 
The Confederate Army was on the other side of 
the narrow strip of land. 
During the night, Captain Ellicombe heard the 
moans of a soldier who lay mortally
wounded on the field.  Not knowing if it was a Union or Confederate soldier, 
the Captain decided to risk his life and bring the
stricken man back for medical attention.
 Crawling on his stomach through the gunfire, the Captain 
reached the stricken soldier and began pulling him 
toward his encampment. When the
Captain finally reached his own lines,
he discovered it was actually a
Confederate soldier but the soldier was dead.
The Captain lit a lantern and suddenly caught his breath 
and went numb with shock. 
In the dim light, he saw the face of the soldier. 
It was his own son.
 The boy had been studying music in the South when the 
war broke out. Without telling his father, 
he enlisted in the Confederate Army. 
The following morning, heartbroken, 
the father asked permission of his superiors to
give his son a full military burial 
despite his enemy status. His request was
only partially granted.
The Captain had asked if he could have a group of Army 
band members play a funeral dirge for his son at the funeral.
 The request was turned down since the soldier was a 
Confederate but, out of respect for the father, 
they did say they could give him only one musician.
The Captain chose a bugler. 
He asked the bugler to play a series of
musical notes he had found on a 
piece of paper in the pocket of the dead 
youth's uniform. This wish was granted.
The haunting melody we now know as "Taps" used 
at military funerals was born.

The poem:
Day is done,
gone the sun, 
from the lakes, from the hills, from the sky,
all is well, safely rest, God is nigh.
Fading light,
Dims the sight, 
And a star gems the sky gleaming bright,
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.
Thanks and praise, 
For our days, 
'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, 'neath the sky, 
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

Now, that, is pure wisdom! It also sounds like something my Father said!!

He always used to give me advice about work.  When I would complain about a superior’s comments, he would tell me to do the job so well; that I couldn’t be criticized, and, that nobody would believe it, when I made the occasional error.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
 
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine as children do.

It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone.

And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Learning is fun when it is something that you want to learn.
~Witt


{Explanation: I have been working with a former student from wayyy back on poetry for about a month now. She commented that learning was fun; although, she never felt that way when she was in school. Then I made that comment. I guess that's true. We enjoy learning something that we are interested in, and we do not enjoy things that have no relevance. Gee. I wonder why the school system doesn't understand that!}

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast? said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
"It's the same thing," he said.

This Dutchie is a big Disney fan and Pooh, even though of course not Disney by origin, is big part of that.

As many people see the books for children, I found alot of wisdom in it...smiles. Some parts are even almost Zen poetry in its pure and simple completeness of the meaning of Life.

*steps off soapbox*



"We will always be Friends Forever, wont we Pooh?" Piglet asked.
"Even longer", Pooh answered.

Hey Dutch ..i think the book would make a great children and adult animation. or did they do one?

excellent quote you have posted there..

Thanks Rg!

No the animated ones they made were meant mostly for children even though me as an adult enjoyed them too, but its not what you mean I know...The book(s) has much more levels then one would think at first sight, and thats the strength of it I think still being read all of these years.

Another Pooh quote I like alot is:

Piglet looking up at Pooh and then after a short silence said: "but if you get a 100 years old...I want to become 100 minus one day, so I never will have to live one single day without you Pooh"

Thanks for thinking of me, MY-FRIEND. Of late, though, you would be disappointed in me; hence, this quote.

It seems that is about all I have been receiving lately.
Title: Re: Sweet & Short Quotes
Post by: A-FRIEND on June 28, 2008, 10:34 PM
Now Witt, there will never be any disappointment in you from me.
       
Think of what Phillip Brooks said:
“A man/woman (my addition) who lives right, and is right, has more power in his/her (my addition) silence than another has by his/her (my addition) words.”

Could it be that what you see as no correct answers, might be the wisdom of providence that says your answer will not be found in noisy exclamations, but rather in the silence of quiet reflection? I have found that sometimes, no matter how hard we try, answers to certain questions evade us. I accept that as guidance telling me "there will be no answer at this time", so the better part of wisdom, for now, is silence.

So take heart dear Witt, we are with you.

"I cannot believe that the artist who establishes beauty as his fundamental approach to art can go very far wrong. No one denies that beauty is broad in scope, so broad that no single lifetime could encompass more than a small part of it. The great danger lies in allowing beauty to get bogged down in personal opinions, trends, and isms, in narrowing our individual understanding to the dogmas prated by the few. Beauty must be free, belonging individually to you and me, as far as we are capable of grasping it. Beauty is all around us, waiting to be discovered, and every artist interprets it on paper or canvas in his own particular way."

Have you ever noticed that the depictions of the pharaohs almost always shows them with a bird in hand and a cobra around their heads? These representations were to remind the pharaohs how important it was to guard their thoughts. If rotten thoughts came into their minds, the vultures would consume them, and if poisonous thoughts came, then the cobras would attack them.
This information will help me to be watchful and  to guard against negative thoughts.

Not a typo, Mistress Witt.  Let me if I can translate.
Well, I'm not up on my Latin either, but Google speaks many languages.  ;D 

Perhaps this may assist you.

persto - To persist, remain firm

et - A bit obvious this, it means 'and' of course. I'm sure you knew that, though.
Or it may mean 'I'. I doubt it, but I'm not absolutely certain.

praesto - To stand before, Be outstanding, excell, surpass

He tossed the ball, threw it into the air, and said to himself as he swung at the ball again, "I am the greatest batter ever!"
But again he missed.
He paused a moment, then threw the ball into the air again and shouted, "I'm the greatest baseball batter who ever lived!"
He swung hard but missed again.

I want to go on living even after my death and that's why I'm so grateful to God for having given me this gift which I can use to develop myself and to express all that's inside. When I write, I can shake off all my cares, my sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived. But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great? Will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so. Oh, I hope so very much. ~ Annelies Marie Frank, from her diary, April 5th, 1944

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." ...Thomas Jefferson

People consider walking on water or through thin air a miracle. But I say,
the true miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to simply walk on earth. Every day we engage in this miracle which we so often do not even recognize: blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black depths of a child's eyes filled with wonder and curiosity -- the view from our own two eyes. All are miracles. ~ G.
