Hazelden - Thought for the Day
Just wanted to post this for some reason:
Thursday, November 27, 2008
You are reading from the book Today's Gift
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.
Albert Einstein knew in his heart that the source of all his knowledge was not himself, but a mystery - something or someone outside himself. And it left him in awe and wonder. He knew also that while genius may be ninety percent hard work and only ten percent inspiration, all the hard work in the world amounts to nothing without that outside, mysterious inspiration.
He was right. We can work hard and play hard. We can paint and draw and write and develop formulas all our lives, but none of it will be new or different unless we are open to inspiration from some power outside ourselves that also, somehow, is deep within us. To be really good at anything, whether it's playing baseball, designing fashion clothing, fixing an engine, or cooking, we must believe in some creative force that helps us excel. When we see that force at work, we stand in awe at the wonderful and mysterious gift we have been given.
How have I been inspired to discover something?

Thank you for that beautiful reading this morning. Each time I watch the sun rise, or look out my window at the bright stars over the lake at night I am inspired by God's masterpiece. I can't imagine life today without taking time to notice how lovely the world really is.

Makes me think of that saying, from the bible I think, "without God, I am nothing."
" Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's about learning to dance in the rain."
