Thought for Today - Diamond Consciousness

"When you look at the world through your physical eyes, you will see all the facets of our diversity: culture, race, personality, religion and so on. Seeing only through your physical eyes, it is easy to become stubborn and to try to prove yourself right. However where there is stubbornness there is no love. And trying to prove the self right is equally offensive. A diamond will sparkle even in the dust; you do not ever need to prove that you are right. In the face of the dangers that come from seeing only with the physical eyes, always think: now is the time to go beyond all divisions, beyond all that limits us and our sense of self. Whatever the race, the religion, the class - our consciousness now has to go beyond all of that." ~Thought for Today, UK

Julito Medrano - facebook

"Civic Groups in Facebook are windows to what is really happening in our surroundings. It is the pulse of the people's aspiration, hope, admiration or even disgust and despair. From the comments, we pick up the weak points that need to be improved. In Public Service, there's no room for over sensitivity because everything done, good or bad is magnified to certain degrees. If something is foul, react and state one's side of the case. Silence means two things; either the issue is true or the issue is dismissed as petty that does not deserve a piece of an attention." ~Julito Medrano FB 19 July 2011

It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes." ~Charles R. Swindoll from Simple Reminders, FB
