  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.

  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    When we believe something to be the absolute truth, we are closed. We are no
    longer open to the understanding and insight of other people, and this is
    because the object of our faith is just an idea, not a living thing. But if
    the object of your faith is your direct experience and your insight, then
    you can always be open. You can grow everyday in your practice, in sharing
    the fruit of your practice, and in making your faith, love, and happiness
    grow.
    -Thich Nhat Hanh

    All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was. I accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory. I was naïve. I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: that I am nobody but myself. ~Ralph Ellison

    Whenever I groan within myself and think how hard it is to keep writing about love in these times of tension and strife which may, at any moment, become for us all a time of terror, I think to myself: What else is the world interested in? What else do we all want, each one of us, except to love and be loved, in our families, in our work, in all our relationships? God is Love. Love casts out fear. Even the most ardent revolutionist, seeking to change the world, to overturn the tables of the money changers, is trying to make a world where it is easier for people to love, to stand in that relationship to each other.
    It is when we love the most intensely and most humanly that we can recognize how tepid is our love for others. The keenness and intensity of love brings with it suffering, of course, but joy too because it is a foretaste of heaven. When you love people, you see all the good in them, all the Christ in them. God sees Christ, His Son, in us. And so we should see Christ in others, and nothing else, and love them. There can never be enough of it.

    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

    Excuse me! I would appreciate it if you wouldn't post quotes that are directly aimed at me and point out the disparity between my image and my reality.
    Thank you.

    ;)

    Edit: And yes, I am aware of the irony that this is a complaint about someone not devoting this tiny little corner of the world to making me happy.

    The Early Morning

    "The moon on the one hand, the dawn on the other,

    The moon is my sister, the dawn is my brother,

    The moon on my left and the dawn on my right,

    My brother, "Good Morning!", my sister "Good-night!"

    Hi freespirit2001
    This poem, _Early morning_, was written by Hilaire Belloc. For more about him, follow this link:
    http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/PRbelloc.htm

    Here's another of his poems:

    "Frog, The

    Be kind and tender to the Frog,
    And do not call him names,
    As "Slimy skin," or "Polly-wog,"
    Or likewise "Ugly James,"
    Or "Gap-a-grin," or "Toad-gone-wrong,"
    Or "Bill Bandy-knees":
    The Frog is justly sensitive
    To epithets like these.

    No animal will more repay
    A treatment kind and fair;
    At least so lonely people say
    Who keep a frog (and, by the way,
    They are extremely rare)."

    Glad you liked it, freespirit :)

    And now, back to "French litterature for the masses" ;)
