One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom.
One heart can know what's true.
One life can make the difference,
you see it's up to You!

"The Sufis advise us to speak only after our words have managed to pass through three gates. At the first gate we ask ourselves, Are these words true? If so, we let them pass on; if not, back they go. At the second gate we ask, Are they necessary? At the last gate we ask, Are they kind?"

There is a saying "You can't stop a bird from flying over your house but you can stop it from making a nest on your roof." This is true of thoughts. You can't stop the occassional negative impulse from emerging from the back of your mind but with this technique you can prevent these impulses growing into REAL thoughts.
You can stop them growing, becoming behaviours, negatively affecting your life. You can instead, make them disappear, make better behaviours, and make your life better through changing your thoughts this way...
The technique is simple. If you fight a thought, it gets stronger and the harder you try NOT to think about something the more you think about it. For example: If I tell you that you will die if you picture in your mind right now a toothpaste tube with red and blue stripes, the world "Colgate" in silver" and a little bit of toothpaste coming out of the end...you would still not be able to stop it. Try as hard as you want to not THINK ABOUT IT and you will still think about it.
The only way to "suppress" a thought is not to fight to suppress it but to REPLACE it.
Whenever you have a bad thought, think of a good, interesting, happy thought instead and REALLY think about it. Build the detail. If you process things through mental pictures, sounds, feelings then create good ones in your mind until they are clear. This cannot fail. Thoughts DIE unless you feed them. If you feed other, better ones then they will grow instead.
As the Bible says "Think on all that is good and holy." Control your thoughts and control your life.
Do it now!

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light;
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more,
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.
Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.
Ring out the want, the care the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.
Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.
Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.
WISH U ALL A VERY HAPPY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR - 2011
