    Paradise

    Just could this be paradise
    right here where you are?
    Nirvana within you
    not somewhere afar?
    Tho' some would decry it
    and say it can't be
    just follow along
    If you long to be free.
    Your life's what you make it -
    your choices each day
    the thoughts that you harbor
    and words that you say
    determine the status
    of your life today.
    So if you want more
    than you think you have now
    watch closely your mindset
    and you'll find out how
    Just live in the present.
    Think only the best
    about yourself first
    and then all the rest
    of your brothers and sisters -
    you'll find that you're blessed
    and really in paradise.
    It's all in your mind.
    Whatever you look for
    is just what you'll find.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    whos getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    That is very nice Luba. Thank you.
    The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning, and does not stop until you get to the office. (Robert Frost)

    If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have a paradise in a few years.

    Re: Paradise

    I wasn't sure where to put this one but it is inspiring so here it is:

    "I want to be like a caterpillar.
    Eat a lot.
    Sleep for awhile.
    And wake up beautiful!"
