Daily Inspirational Quote January 29, 2015

“Best rule for a simple life: Care with no reason, love with no expectations.”

Oh if it were only that simple! I think that’s one rule that few of us could say we are able to follow. Humans just aren’t made to care with no reason or love with no expectations.  If we could then life would be truly simple but wouldn’t it be lacking something? The reasons that make us care and love with expectation come down to one thing, we have a heart and, for that, we are truly thankful.

Daily Inspirational Quote January 28, 2015

“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.”

I love nature! The different flowers and plants, their colors, scents, the intricate patterns that can also be seen on some species of animals and winged creatures; the fish and mammals in the oceans and rivers. So much to see and wonder at. None of which has man’s hand it its creation but comes into being perfect and individual. Marvelous seems a very mundane word for it all but then what word or words could sum up something as wondrous as nature?

The Difference Between Education & Training

"The root word of education -- educare -- means to lead forth a hidden wholeness in another person." These are the words of Rachel Naomi Remen, whose course, the "Healer's Art," is now taught in half of American medical schools and seven countries around the world. Her words remind us that competence and completeness are each held within the other, and that we are already enough.
