Find Your Greatness



Somehow we’ve come to believe that greatness was reserved for the chosen few, for the superstars...

The truth is, greatness is for all of us
this isn’t about lowering expectations, it’s about raising the every last one of us

because greatness isn’t in one special place, and is not in one special person; greatness is where somebody is trying to find it

Sometimes greatness is something you plan. But most of the time, it’s something you try

Our Whole Life is a Dream


our whole life is a dream...

the dreams of our present life are the environment in which we work out the impressions, thoughts, feelings of a former life

as we live through thousands of dreams in our present life, so is our present life only one of thousands of such lives which we enter from the other

more real life - and then return to after death
our life is but one of the dreams of that more real life

True Friends


A true friend doesn’t just talk of caring about you.
They walk, rhumba and salsa their talk.
They’re there when you need them...
and even when you say you don’t need them but really kinda do.

A true friend always tells you the truth...
including the stuff you haven’t been truthful about yourself.

You feel safe to talk to them about serious things...
or the most absolutely goofiest things.

Plus you can sit in silence with them and still feel understood.

A true friend roots for blessing to happen for you...
and they do what they can to be one of your blessings.

Story of Boring Joke


a bunch of soldiers sitting around the barracks.

one old guy yelled 31 and the place broke out in laughter.
after a moment or two, another guy yelled 52 and more laughter erupted.

then a depressed-looking guy in the corner yelled 29 followed by silence.
he yelled again, 68 and again, the room was silent.

the new recruit asked the guy in the next bunk what was going on.
the guy answered, "we’ve been together so long that we know each others' jokes too well, so we decided to just number them and save us the time"

the new guy asked again, "but what about that guy in the corner?"
"oh he never could tell a joke."

why should we do anything more than once? should we live just one day?... 
it's new every time, each time is a different experience

The Hardest Heart


Let the morning sun proclaim
The light of the world
Let the golden day unfurl
On every wave
On every hill

Each angered fist uncurl
Caress the hardest heart
Stir the sweeping earth
Each stone
Each blade of grass

The soul of the world
Ignite a brand day
Let the morning sun proclaim
A brand new start
Caress the hardest heart

Caress the hardest heart

Let the morning sun proclaim
The light of the world
Let the golden day unfurl
On every wave
On every hill

Each angered fist uncurl
Caress the hardest heart
Stir the sweeping earth
Each stone
Each blade of grass

The soul of the world
Ignite a brand day
Let the morning sun proclaim
A brand new start
Caress the hardest heart

The soul of the world
Ignite a brand new day
A brand new start
A brand new way

I will do more

I will do more than belong... I will participate

I will do more than believe... I will practice

I will do more than forgive... I will forget

I will do more than teach... I will inspire

I will do more than care... I will help

I will do more than dream... I will work

I will do more than give... I will serve

I will do more than be fair... I will be kind
