The Declaration of Interdependence
by Melanie Bacon

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

That all life is interconnected, and endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights and responsibilities,

That among these are presence, compassion, and the pursuit of happiness.

That to secure these rights and responsibilities,

We open our minds and hearts to the needs of others, and our own true needs,

We hear the sound of the living universe in our ears, and add our voices to the song,

We live every moment with awareness of the purity and power of existence.

And for the support of this Declaration, we pledge to each other our love and our breath,

For the freedom of the one is the freedom of the all, and the pain of the one is the pain of the all;

The breath of the one is the breath of the all, and the breath of the all is the breath of God.

This quote reminded me of a Website I saw a few days ago. It's called What is the Secret?

Watch the movie trailer.

The Teacher

Add to My Yahoo!

"Fifty unhappy people came as a group to ask a teacher for helpful information. He told them, 'The first information is that you really do not want my information, though you will insist that you do. If you can take this bit of information you may return tomorrow for more.' The next day forty-nine were absent. The returning man glanced around the room and complimented the teacher, 'You give accurate information.'" -Vernon Howard

The Brickmaker

Add to My Yahoo!

"A story written in Finland told of a brickmaker who was hauling his products to market on a dark night. He complained bitterly at the bumpy road he and his wagon had to travel. Then he noticed something. He was making his own rough road by carelessly permitting the bricks to fall off the wagon and under the wheels. Because men and women travel at night-in mental darkness - they fail to see how they make their own rough roads. Correction is possible." -Vernon Howard

Where do you find enlightenment?

It occurred to me today that the most important things I get from a book, movie, or life event are NOT the external stories, ideas, or happenings.

The most important things are the insights that are triggered inside of me. I have to learn to pay attention to those.
