A master was explaining the nature of Tao to one of his novices. The Tao is embodied in all software regardless of how insignificant said the master. Is Tao in a hand-held calculator? asked the novice. It is came the reply. Is the Tao in a video game? continued the novice. It is even in a video game said the master. And is the Tao in the DOS for a personal computer? The master coughed and shifted his position slightly. The lesson is over for today he said.

Trees have from time immemorial been closely associated with magic. These stout members of the vegetable kingdom may stand for as long as a thousand years and tower far above our mortal heads. As such they are symbols and keepers of unlimited power longevity and timelessness. An untouched forest studded with trees of all ages sizes and types is more than a mysterious magical place it is one of the energy reservoirs of nature. Within its boundaries stand ancient and new sentinels guardians of the universal force which has manifested on the the Earth....

William Browne of Tavistock   Category: Unsorted

There is no excellence anywhere without labor. We would think a man foolish indeed who would say l am willing that my business should prosper or that my farm should yield plentifully but Ill not stir a peg. But he is no more foolish than the man who says I am willing that God should bless me abundantly but I shall not do anything toward that end myself. We must consistently rely upon the help of the Lord but we will not make any progress or meet with any success unless we put forth an earnest effort.

Edward Bellamy   Category: Unsorted

The real challenge that we face in our communications with others is to condition our hearts to have Christlike feelings for all of Heavenly Father's children. When we develop this concern for the condition of others we then will communicate with them as the Savior would. We will then warm the hearts of those who may be suffering in silence. As we meet people with special needs along life's way we can then make their journey brighter by the things that we say. Christlike communications will help us to develop righteous relationships and ultimately to return to our heavenly home safely. May we treasure the divine gift of communication and may we use it wisely to build and to assist others on this marvelous journey through mortality.

Have you done your homework? my mother would ask. Ill do it later. You will do it now young man. I don't want you winding up on the third shift at Flagg-Utica. Flagg-Utica was a local textile plant. Somehow I never could figure how failing to read three chapters in my geography book about the various sorts of vegetation to be found in a tropical rain forest had anything to do with facing a life as a mill hand. But with enough guilt and fear as catalysts you can read anything even geography books and Deuteronomy.

You can't build a great company without great people. But how do you know them when you see them? Over the past few years a number of companies in a wide range of industries from airlines to steel computers to hotels have asked themselves what separates their winners from their losers good hires from bad and they all arrived at the same answer: what people know is less important than who they are. Hiring they believe is not about finding people with the right experience; it's about finding people with the right mind-set. These companies hire for attitude and train for skill.

And as the voice of death whispers You must go from earth let us hear the voice of Christ saying You are but coming to me!

I do not want to presuppose anything as known. I see in my explanation in section 1 the definition of the concepts point straight line and plane if one adds to these all the axioms of groups i-v as characteristics. If one is looking for other definitions of point perhaps by means of paraphrase in terms of extensionless etc. then of course I would most decidedly have to oppose such an enterprise. One is then looking for something that can never be found for there is nothing there and everything gets lost becomes confused and vague and degenerates into a game of hide and seek.

I asked an endurance swimmer How is it possible for you to swim for twenty hours? What kind of mental attitude do you have? She said I believe that the water is a friend. It wants to help me. It does not fight against me and I do not fight against it. We are working together. I often think of that when I am in the ‘swim' of life. The waves and currents and the tides hit us all at times and it is not always easy to say The water is friendly. It requires an act of faith a volitional act; it means work but most of all it requires a will to believe. the more we use this will the more it becomes a part of us and the more natural becomes its application.

I now want to tell three stories about advances in twentieth-century physics. A curious fact emerges in these tales: time and again physicists have been guided by their sense of beauty not only in developing new theories but even in judging the validity of physical theories once they are developed......... Simplicity is part of what I mean by beauty but it is a simplicity of ideas not simplicity of a mechanical sort that can be measured by counting equations or symbols.

A professor was telling students about his colleagues class. Students in the other class had taken to tossing erasers at the clock. Each precise hit caused it to jump ahead one minute. Before class one morning they succeeded in advancing the clock by ten minutes. Since the new time indicated that the professor was beyond the accepted starting time the class left. The professor never said a word about the incident. However he presented the class with a killer of a final exam. As the students labored to finish in the allotted time the professor amused himself by tossing erasers at the clock.

Will corporal punishment help restrain criminal behavior? Some well-intentioned experts say no. But one group that disagrees with these experts is the criminals themselves. Criminals know that punishment works and they use it every day all over America. Criminals demand absolute obedience and if corporal punishment doesnt work then they will use capital punishment for they know that the fear of death is the best deterrent for disobedience. Even the experts tell us that when being attacked by a criminal obey him because to resist may bring even more punishment. So does punishment work? It sure does. The problem is the wrong people are being punished.

Ere you lie down to sleep in the night sit still awhile and nurse again to life your gentler self. Forget the restless noisy spirit of the day and encourage to speech the soft voices within you that timidly whisper of the peace of the quiet night; and occasionally look out at the quiet stars. The night will soothe you like a tender mother folding you against her soft bosom and hiding you from the harm of the world. Though denied and rejected by men in the light of day the night will not reject you and in the still of her soft shadows you are free. After the day's struggle there is no freedom like unfettered thoughts no sound like the music of silence. And though behind you lies a road of dust and heat and discouragement and before you the challenge and uncertainty of untried paths in this brief hour you are master of all highways and the universe nestles in your soul.

Individualism as a definition of holding to personal ideals is classed as obstinacy and anti-social. Inevitably we run point blank into the evils of compromise. When compromise enters our moral fibre it spreads like a cancerous growth. We think we plan adequate safeguards around areas in which we contemplate yielding our standards but once we lower the fence and break our strong will to do right come what may we expose ourselves to forces that spread beyond control. Compromise always starts on some rather insignificant principle. The dangers of yielding seem negligible and we usually risk those things first where observation and detection by others is difficult. We thus seek to avoid censure and discipline. In a short time we find ourselves trading our principles for false values and doing it in the black market of human relationships....

We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch or the country of our birth or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing.

But within all this realm of choicelessness we do choose how we shall live: courageously or in cowardice honorably or dishonorably with purpose or adrift. We decide what is important and what is trivial in life. We decide that what makes us significant is either what we do or what we refuse to do. But no matter how indifferent the universe may be to our choices and decisions these choices and decisions are ours to make. We decide. We choose. And as we decide and choose so are our lives formed.

I do hate sums. There is no greater mistake than to call arithmetic an exact science. There are permutations and aberrations discernible to minds entirely noble like mine; subtle variations which ordinary accountants fail to discover; hidden laws of number which it requires a mind like mine to perceive. For instance if you add a sum from the bottom up and then from the top down the result is always different.

You don't want to need it but it has become a part of you and it wont loosen its grip on you. The control you once fought for is gone. You have no control. And you just don't care

Secondly since Scripture doth admit of diverse interpretations that no one cling to any particular exposition with such pertinacity that if what he supposed to be the teaching of Scripture should afterward turn out to be clearly false he should nevertheless still presume to put it forward lest thereby the sacred Scriptures should be exposed to the derision of unbelievers and the way of salvation should be closed to them.

He stopped and re-examined the doubtful step for several minutes and then convinced of the error he abruptly dismissed the meeting -- to the astonishment of most of the audience. It was an evidence of intellectual courage as well as honesty and doubtless won for him the supreme admiration of every person in the group -- an admiration which was in no wise diminished but rather increased when at a later meeting he announced that after all he had been able to prove the step to be correct.

In the bottom of an old pond lived some grubs who could not understand why none of their groups ever came back after crawling up the stem of the lilies to the top of the water. They promised each other that the next one who was called to make the upward climb would return and tell what happened to him. Soon one of them felt an urgent impulse to seek the surface; he rested himself on top of a lily pad and went through a glorious transformation which made him a dragonfly with beautiful wings. In vain he tried to keep him promise. Flying back and forth over the pond he peered down at his friends below. Then he realized that if they could ever see him they would not recognize such a radiant creature as one of their number. The fact that we cannot see our friends or communicate with them after the transformation which we call death. is no proof that they cease to exit.

I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity however humble that activity and to scorn shoddiness however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.

Its not fear of striking out that makes me reluctant to step up to the plate. Its the fear of getting hit in the head by a 90 mph fastball the pitcher coming off of the mound to stomp me with her cleats while I am down the rest of the opposing team rushing out of the dugout hurling insults as they kick me and spit on me while all along the crowd in the stands is cheering them on and laughing at my failure. So no its not the fear of striking out that keeps me from stepping up to the plate.

He [Satan] has power over us to that extent [to tempt us] in this fallen condition. At the same time we have the sweet influence of the Spirit of God pleading with us to do that which is right pleading with every human being that does not drive it from him; for every human being has a portion of the Spirit of God given unto him. We sometimes call it conscience; we call it by one name and we call it by another; but it is the Spirit of God that every man and woman possesses that is born on the earth. God has given unto all his children this Spirit.... Everywhere throughout the earth where man dwells this Spirit rests upon him. It comes from God. It pleads with man to do right. It pleads with man to resist the blandishments of Satan.

In his enthusiasm the evangelist often finds it difficult seriously to imagine that anyone could be called not to be an evangelist. The man of vision and imagination finds it difficult to see the value of those who do no more than plod on faithfully along a well-tried road. The man whose concern is in personal dealing with people and leading them to understand God better finds it difficult to be patient with the theologian or the Christian philosopher whose work is in the quiet of a book-lined study. Yet the truth is that the wholeness which God is working to achieve is never complete in an individual but through individuals living together as one body each supplying the deficiencies of the others.

Paul Tillich can show us that the unity which we seek as Christians must involve our denominations in changes even greater than those which many of us now expect. His insistence on taking seriously the gropings of all men for the truth about their lives must be allowed to remind the ecumenical movement that the word oikoumene is Greek not for the Church but for the whole inhabited world. The ecumenical movement is more than Christian patriarchs kissing. Christian unity means the unity of mankind in finding and obeying God. Tillich can teach us that the Church must not shut its door to celebrate a family reunion while a single child of God remains outside.

I tell you through a means which he has established by which we can love Him freely; ... that is we can be useful not to Him which is impossible but to our neighbor.... To show the love that we have for Him we ought to serve and love every rational creature and extend our charity to good and bad as much to one who does us ill service and criticizes us as to one who serves us.

Some time ago a member of my family sent to me a critical article written by Mr. Edmund Fuller in a publication called Saturday Review. The criticism of the writer is directed against the effort made to satisfy what the author designates as general religious hunger with books articles and public appearances of nationally advertised individuals carrying on a propaganda for what is characterized as (these are quotes) the good life peace of mind positive thinking and successful or confident living. What the author objects to most strenuously is not so much that propaganda should be issued for the optimism of peace of mind and positive thinking but that this psychological optimism should be held out in any form as an interpretation of or a substitute for the real Christian religion.

The antithesis between death and life is not so stark for the Christian as it is for the atheist. Life is a process of becoming and the moment of death is the transition from one life to another. Thus it is possible for a Christian to succumb to his own kind of death-wish to seek that extreme of other-worldliness to which the faith has always been liable especially in periods of stress and uncertainty. There may appear a marked preoccupation with death and a rejection of all temporal things. To say that this world is in a fallen state and that not too much value must be set upon it is very far from the Manichaean error of supposing it to be evil throughout. The Christian hope finds ambivalence in death: that which destroys also redeems.

A woods with a bear in it is real to a man walking through it in a way that a woods with no bear is not.

I could feel his heart beating against my heart.

Oh how lovely was the morning! Radiant beamed the sun above. Bees were humming Sweet birds Singing Music ringing through the grove. When within the shady woodland Joseph sought the God of love. Humbly kneeling sweet appealing `Twas the boys first uttered prayer When the powers of sin assailing Filled his soul with deep despair; But undaunted still he trusted In his heavnly Fathers care. Suddenly a light descended. Brighter far than noon-day sun And a shining glorious pillar Oer him fell around him shone. While appeared two heavnly beings God the Father and the Son. `Joseph this is my beloved; Hear Him! Oh how sweet the word! Josephs humble prayer was answered And he listened to the Lord. Oh what rapture filled his bosom For he saw the living God.

A life of this kind of service will forever remain the measure of ones true greatness.

When the mathematician says that such and such a proposition is true of one thing it may be interesting and it is surely safe. But when he tries to extend his proposition to everything though it is much more interesting it is also much more dangerous. In the transition from one to all from the specific to the general mathematics has made its greatest progress and suffered its most serious setbacks of which the logical paradoxes constitute the most important part. For if mathematics is to advance securely and confidently it must first set its affairs in order at home.

That beautiful warm living object looked so fragile so delicate that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God.

True it is that many find some of the speech on the Internet to be offensive and amid the din of cyberspace many hear discordant voices that they regard as indecent. The absence of governmental regulation of Internet content has unquestionably produced a kind of chaos but as one of plaintiffs' experts put it with such resonance at the hearing: What achieved success was the very chaos that the Internet is. The strength of the Internet is that chaos. Just as the strength of the Internet is chaos so the strength of our liberty depends upon the chaos and cacophony of the unfettered speech the First Amendment protects. For these reasons I without hesitation hold that the [Communications Decency Act] is unconstitutional on its face.

To me it seems basic to the getting rid of fear to know that our trials of whatever nature are not motiveless. In our present stage of development we could hardly do without them. So often looking ... ugly ... they are in reality the branches by we which we catch on and climb. They are not obstacles to happiness... . Every call of duty has its place in this ideal; every irksome job every wearisome responsibility. The fact that we are not always aware of it in no way annuls the other fact that it is so....

A woman today lives in perpetual conflict. She cannot slay the dragon of the unconscious without severing her own essential contact with it; without in fact destroying her feminine strength and becoming a mere pseudo-man. Her task is a peculiarly difficult one. She needs the focused consciousness her animus alone can give her yet she must not forsake her woman's role of mediator to man. Through a woman man finds his soul. She must never forget this. Through a woman not through a pseudo-man. Through man woman finds the animus who can express the soul she has never lost. Her burning need is to trust her own diffuse awareness to know what she knows and to learn to speak of it for until it is expressed she does not wholly know it.

Evangelism is not an activity at all. It is rather an attitude of mind behind all Christian activity. Evangelism is not a list of certain things done but the spirit in which they are done. That is precisely why it cannot be organized. It is perhaps best described as an attitude of mind towards God and the world an attitude which the Church must recover if she is to be true to her Lord and to seize hold of the present opportunity.

From one Soul of the Universe are all Souls derived.... Of these Souls there are many changes some into a more fortunate estate and some quite contrary.... Not all human souls but only the pious ones are divine. Once separated from the body and after the struggle to acquire piety which consists in knowing God and injuring none such a soul becomes all intelligence. The impious soul however punishes itself by seeking a human body to enter into for no other body can receive a human soul; it cannot enter the body of an animal devoid of reason. Divine law preserves the human soul from such infamy.... The soul passeth from form to form; and the mansions of her pilgrimage are manifold. Thou puttest off thy bodies as raiment; and as vesture dost thou fold them up. Thou art from old O Soul of Man; yea thou art from everlasting.

It is my strong contention that there is an infinitely higher thrill which like climbing a mountain or singing a beautiful song once experienced never stops begging to be repeated.

It has its development in private and personal decisions to test that law through acts of faith followed by effort.

Two years later this eighteenth-century French mathematician and astronomer hinted with admirable prescience at the role of genetics in evolution: The elementary particles which form the embryo are each drawn from the corresponding structure in the parent and conserve a sort of remembrance of their previous form so that in the offspring they will reflect and reproduce a resemblance to the parents ... We can thus readily explain how new species are formed... by supposing that the elementary particles may not always retain the order which they present in the parents but may fortuitously produce differences which multiplying and accumulating have resulted in the infinite variety of species which we see at the present time.

Men can be stimulated to show off their good qualities to the leader who seems to think they have good qualities.

Larger and finer meanings are read into the older legends of the plants and the universality of certain myths is expressed in the concurrence of ideas in the beginnings of the great religions. One of the first figures in the leading cosmologies is a tree of life guarded by a serpent. In the Judaic faith this was the tree in the garden of Eden; the Scandinavians made it an ash Ygdrasil; Christians usually specify the tree as an apple Hindus as a soma Persians as a homa Cambodians as a talok; this early treee is the vine of Bacchus the snake-entwined caduceus of Mercury the twining creeper of the Eddas the bohidruma of Buddha the fig of Isaiah the tree of Aesculapius with the serpent around his trunk.

Agency or the power to choose was ours as spirit children of our Creator before the world was. It is a gift from God nearly as precious as life itself. Often however agency is misunderstood. While we are free to choose once we have made those choices we are tied to the consequence of those choices. We are free to take drugs or not. But once we choose to use a habit-forming drug we are bound to the consequences of that choice. Addiction surrenders later freedom to choose.

Philosopher and mathematician Gottfried Leibniz speculated on the possibility of intermediate species over a century before the publication of Darwins theory: All advances by degrees in Nature and nothing by leaps and this law as applied to each is part of my doctrine of Continuity. Although there may exist in some other world species intermediate between Man and the Apes Nature has thought it best to remove them from us in order to establish our superiority beyond question. I speak of intermediate species and by no means limit myself to those leading to Man. I strongly approve of the research for analogies; plants insects and Comparative Anatomy will increase these analogies especially when we are able to take advantage of the microscope more than at present.

To remember that one is Gods child His own that no matter what one has done God loves even to the end with a love that never lets gothat is the word men and women need when wars hot and cold mass movements and mass production sweep over and swamp the individual. All else but this assurance fails the man in dire need.

If this bill [for the admission of Orleans Territory as a State] passes it is my deliberate opinion that it is virtually a dissolution of the Union; that it will free the States from their moral obligation; and as it will be the right of all so it will be the duty of some definitely to prepare for a separation amicably if they can violently if they must.

When its over it should be over. When a man is no longer at risk he loses touch. I think these fellows who think they have some long-term right to dignity and salary and expense accounts and company planes are all wrong. On December 21 1963 I walked out of there and said thats it: no office no secretaries. Nothing.

All anger is not sinful because some degree of it and on some occasions is inevitable. But it becomes sinful and contradicts the rule of Scripture when it is conceived upon slight and inadequate provocation and when it continues long.

There is but one straight road to success and that is merit. The man who is successful is the man who is useful. Capacity never lacks opportunity. It can not remain undiscovered because it is sought by too many anxious to use it.

Early on in the space race NASA spent much time and effort seeking a metal robust enough to withstand the heat of reentry and protect the astronauts. The endeavor failed. At some point a clever person changed the problem. The real problem was to protect the astronauts and perhaps this could be done without a material that could withstand reentry. The solution the ablative heat shield had characteristics just opposite to those originally sought. Rather than withstanding the heat it slowly burnt away and carried the heat away from the vehicle.

The great truths of human life do not spring new born to each new generation. They derive from long experience. They are the gathered wisdom of the race. They are renewed in time of conflict and danger. If the times in which we are now living do not bring a fuller understanding of the great traditions of the Western European peoples and an almost Messianic desire to affirm them we are not worthy of that heritage.

The path of duty is the only path of safety. It is the only path wherein we can walk and have the assurance of Gods continued blessings of his continued deliverances. Any other course does not carry with it this assurance. Any other path leads to darkness to contention to evils of many kinds; for it leads away from the truth and the right. But if we continue in the path that is marked out for us by divine instruction trusting implicitly in God then shall we be delivered from all impending evils that are sought to be brought upon us no matter what they may be; and the nearer we live to God the greater will be the blessings showered upon us and seeming evils will be changed to blessings of untold worth.
