Live Values

Values are those things, both tangible and intangible, which we care about the most. Most of us demonstrate by our actions that our values are mostly tangible or material. But if we were to reflect for a moment we might find that what we truly value is very intangible.

Love, peace and happiness are our deepest values whether we are aware of it or not. So let’s experiment. If peace is something you value, then how will you live peacefully today. You experience what you live. So if you want peace in your life… give it and you’ll live it. Or do you prefer a bit of anger and stress? We are all artists and it’s only when we paint our own life with the innate values of our spirit, which are also our eternal virtues, that we are truly creative. Paint a little peace, love and wisdom into your life today. If you do, and you make it a regular inner activity, the giving is automatic and the living is… easy!
An Ancient Peace

There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude. There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost. There is a love you have missed for so long and will always come back to.
“Being rude is easy.
It does not take any effort
and is a sign of weakness and insecurity.
Kindness shows great self-discipline and strong self-esteem.
Being kind is not always easy when dealing with rude people.
Kindness is a sign of a person who has done a lot of personal work
and has come to a great self-understanding and wisdom.
Choose to be kind over being right
and you’ll be right every time
because kindness is a sign of strength.”
You are what you think

You are what you think. Think that you are a being of peace and peace will become your personality. Share good news with others. Always have something interesting prepared to share with those you meet. Remember to have a peaceful thought at least once a day.

It’s never okay to be cruel.”

We don’t know
what someone is going through.
We don’t wear signs
that illustrate our personal struggles.
You don’t see
signs taped to people’s shirts that say
“Going through a divorce”
or “Lost a child”
or “Feeling depressed”
or “Diagnosed with cancer.”
If we could read visually
what those around us are going through
we would definitely be nicer.
But we shouldn’t have to see signs
and have reasons to treat strangers with kindness.
We should do it anyway,
whether we know what is going on or not.
Whether they deserve it or not.
Let’s give everyone an extra dose
of patience, kindness and love.”
Be Nice

It is nice to be important but it is important to be nice. Today take the opportunity to be nice to someone without expecting a return.
"Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe,
it can achieve."
Napoleon Hill
“Your answers lie within you.
The answers to life’s questions lie within you.
All you need to do is look, listen and trust.”
~ Rules for Being Human
“Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others,
you should put a good deal of thought
into the happiness that you are able to give.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Still Mind
Maintain a still mind and wisdom will be your friend and guide all your decisions
"We do not stop playing because we grow old,
we grow old because we stop playing!”
~ Benjamin Franklin
No Vacancy

Don’t give negative people a room in your head. Keep it occupied so there’s no space to rent. Remaining full with the treasures of good thoughts is the best hospitality I can give.

“Never lose sight of the fact that
the most important yardstick of your success
will be how you treat other people
– your family, friends, and coworkers,
and even strangers you meet along the way.”
~ Barbara Bush
Wonderful You

You are wonderful just as you are.

Once you see that and accept that... others will too.
