I like to begin each new thread with this. It's a classic and very special to me.

Mayan Code of Honor

As you walk your path of life and love
guide yourself into spirituality
Be patient with yourself;
there is no rush when it comes to
advancing on whatever path you choose.
We have chosen to come again,
A new day dawns as WE awaken
to the marvel of heaven on earth.
WE are spiritual beings
wearing human cloaks.

Trust yourself and go within.
As the rambling begin to quiet,
listen to the whispers of your
inner self; your intuition; your spirit.
Keep what is good for you.
Love ALL unconditionally.
ONE becomes a Way of Life.

~ Mayan Code of Honor

Thank you for the new thread Ann and the beautiful Mayan Code of Honour is just perfect to start the thread off.

Thank you all for your kind words re my poor mathematics, 17 months is cool. xx

I love that one, today, Daisy. Hev calls it "Go along to get along" and it's something I try not to do. I don't have to compromise my principals, boundaries or values, sometimes to keep the peace I just let the other person have their views, and I keep mine.

"That's nice" "Good for you" "Sorry to hear that" "I hope you work that out" are all phrases I keep handy.

They're good phrases to keep handy Ann. One of my favourites is when people are disgruntled is " I'm sorry you feel that way."

There is no way to happiness,
happiness is the way.

You should be happy right in the here and now.
There is no way to enlightenment.
Enlightenment should be right here and right now.
The moment when you come back to yourself, mind and body together,
fully present, fully alive, that is already enlightenment.
You are no longer a sleepwalker.
You are no longer in a dream.
You are fully alive.
You are awake.
Enlightenment is there.

And if you continue each moment like that,
enlightenment becomes deeper.
More powerful.

There is no way to enlightenment,
enlightenment is the way.

Just got up, Daisy, and the "half empty" posting made me laugh--totally accurate for me, for sure! Heading to the kitchen to get a FULL cup of coffee...
