Miracles by Walt Whitman

​Miracles by Walt Whitman
Why, who makes much of a miracle?

 As to me I know of nothing else but Miracles, when I walk the streets of Manhattan, or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky, 

Or wade with naked feet along the beach just in the edge of the water, 

or talk by day, or sit a dinner table with the rest, or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car,

or watch honeybees busy around the height of a summer forenoon,


Or animals feeding in the field, or birds, and the wonderfulness of insects in the air, 
Or the wonderfulness of the sundown, or of stars shining so quiet and bright, or the exquisite delicate, thin curve of the new moon in spring; 
These with the rest, one at all, or to me miracles, 

Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the same.

To me the sea is a continual miracle. The fishes that swim – the rocks – the motion of the waves – the ships with men in them, 

What stranger Miracles are there? 
Walt Whitman

Way Before Las Vegas Was a Glimmer in My Eye 

In my database on Google Photos it came up with this photo that was taken and the Huntington Beach Pier about 2012 byl a friend of my mom and mine Glenn Clayton. He thought of me like a daughter got mom and I through my dad’s death and was a great friend. When I loved to Las Vegas I lost touch with him unfortunately. 

Times were simpler then and how I wish I could still see mom’s sweet, beautiful smile now, as when this was taken. Now smiles from in heaven with dad and was hoping I can get through this day without tears, but I suppose that’s what makes me good human being.

What was one of your best Thanksgiving memories?

We all have Thanksgiving stories to tell and memories that stand out from the rest.

Can you share some of the special times that you remember I’m Thanksgiving? 

Was there a time that you donated your time to a Food Bank and cooked and made food for the homeless and underprivileged? 

Was there a time when your family got together and everything and everybody was especially wonderful? 

Was there a ceremony that you and your family and love ones did that no one else did that made it unique?

Share your story of thankfulness with everyone.

Winners think constantly of “I Can” – Dennis Whaitley

Dennis Waitley says : “The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can’t do.”

The difference between truth and falsehood in three words or less. Can you describe the difference? 

Wisdom Story: “Birbal Is Brief”
—————————
“One day Akbar asked his courtiers if they could tell him the difference between truth and falsehood in three words or less.

The courtiers looked at one another in bewilderment.

“What about you, Birbal?” asked the emperor. “I’m surprised that you too are silent.”

“I’m silent because I want to give others a chance to speak,” said Birbal.

“Nobody else has the answer,” said the emperor. “So go ahead and tell me what the difference between truth and falsehood is — in three words or less.”

“Four fingers” said Birbal

“Four fingers?” asked the emperor, perplexed.

“That’s the difference between truth and falsehood, your Majesty,” said Birbal. “That which you see with your own eyes is the truth. That which you have only heard about might not be true. More often than not, it’s likely to be false.”

“That is right,” said Akbar. “But what did you mean by saying the difference is four fingers?’

“The distance between one’s eyes and one’s ears is the width of four fingers, Your Majesty,” said Birbal, grinning.”

Your life is right now. It’s not later! It’s not in that time of retirement. It’s not when the lover gets here…..

Esther Hicks says : “Your life is right now! It’s not later! It’s not in that time of retirement. It’s not when the lover gets here. It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house. It’s not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it’s not ever going to get better than right now-until it gets better right now!”

What Wolf Are You Feeding? Read on….

Blackhawk says : “A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt. He said, ‘I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the vengeful, violent one, the other wolf is the loving compassionate one.’ The grandson asked him, ‘Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?’ The grandfather answered, ‘The one I feed.”

TRUE TRANQUILITY 

Wisdom Story: “True Tranquility”
—————————
“Once upon a time in ancient China, the Emperor was in his study, looking over volumes of diplomatic documents. He found it hard to concentrate, so he summoned his most trusted Minister. When the Minister arrived, he saw that the Emperor was pacing back and forth, looking irritable.

The Emperor said to him: “I wish to focus on the affairs of the state, but my mind is unsettled and agitated. When I feel like this, I need something I can look at to help me regain tranquility. Have the best artist in the land create a painting that has the power to calm me down. I want the theme of this painting to be ‘True Tranquility.’”

“As you command, Your Majesty.”

A few days later, the Minister reported that there were three artists widely considered to be the best in China. They were equally talented, so he brought all of them into the palace. Once they understood what the Emperor wanted, they began to paint.

When the work was done, the Emperor went into the studio with the Minister to see for himself. The first painting they looked at depicted a placid lake surrounded by mountains. It was a beautiful scene; the surface of the lake seemed perfectly still and conveyed a peaceful feeling. The Emperor smiled: “This is beautiful.”

The second painting showed a snowscape. It evoked the silence after a snowfall, a deep silence that went beyond mere lack of noise, because the snow banks absorbed all sound. Both the Minister and the Emperor nodded their approval. “Very insightful,” said the Emperor.

They looked at the third painting, which featured a waterfall. “I am sorry, Your Majesty,” the Minister said. “It looks like this artist did not understand my instructions to paint a scene of serenity. Let me discard this painting, and we can choose from the first two.”

He reached for the painting, but the Emperor stopped him: “No, wait.” He stared at it for a moment longer, and then said: “This is the painting for me.”

“What? But – Your Majesty! How can this waterfall compare to the other two in representing tranquility? I do not understand!”

“The waterfall is not the most important thing in this painting,” said the Emperor. “Look again.”

The Minister took another look at the painting, more carefully this time. He saw that there was a tree next to the waterfall. One of the branches of the tree held a nest. A bird was sleeping inside that nest.

“See how the bird is able to relax and rest even though the deafening torrent is so close to it,” the Emperor pointed out. “It has such a profound quietness within that external conditions have no power to irritate or disturb. Now that is the essence of True Tranquility!””

When was the last time the you compare yourself to the little bird in the nest it wasn’t disturbed by the raging water fall?

What do you do now to cope with the stresses of life that you can share with others to help them too?
