CelebraZine 06Feb09

You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.-- Winston Churchill

(thanks for the quote to Humanity Healing)

From Today and Tomorro

Alex Blackwell presents 10 Steps for Transforming Negative Thoughts into Positive Beliefs at The Bridgemaker

We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what’s wrong in your life or you can focus on what’s right. - Marianne Williamson

Joe presents What was the last thing you found?

"I would like to beg you, dear Sir, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."
-Rainer Maria Rilke's advice to a young poet
Found by Joe in 'bring me the rhinoceros' by John Tarant

Many thanks to those featured today, for the work they do to better our world!

This concludes today's posting of CelebraZine (eZine to Celebrate What's Right in the World), a 'running blog carnival' (of posts both found and shared with me) that uplift and inspire.... an inspiration of sayings, video, audio (music and speech), images, poetry--anything and everything that feeds the positive in heart, spirit, and mind.

Our focus dictates what we see, which reinforces our focus, further confining the possibility of what we will see.

May you be blessed by these offerings reminding us of the beauty, wonder, and sacredness in the world around us and within us.

Celebrate yourself!

Be a part of the expression of celebration. .

Submit your submission (containing text, image, video, and audio, poetry, quotes, etc.) anytime for the daily installments of CelebraZine, a 'running blog carnival' of What's Right in the World.

Note: Even if you are not the blogger of the work you'd like to suggest, but have noticed someone's work that you think should be included in a Celebration of What's Right in the World, --empowering people and spirit--please point out the work to us.

Blessings, dear ones,

What a wonderful idea...sharing so many things that are uplifting and inspirational. I liked the photograph. It's like God decided the sign on the building should be "fill in the blank." What a great visual.

I also loved the quote from Rainer Maria Rilke, especially these words, "...have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves..."

Yes, Sarah...for as long as we have not made concrete what happiness is, we can find it everywhere; we are unrestricted.

Thank you for your presence here.

blessings and joy to you and your dear ones,

To savor the questions is indeed a wonderul exercise in and of itself. So many people get wrapped up in searching for answers They may forget that just being offers another meaningful perspective incomparable to others. Love the image that leaves the blank!
