The Law of Success Part 23

2 comments:
Intolerance

If you must give expression to prejudice and hatred and intolerance, do not speak it but write it; write it in the sands, near the water's edge.

When the dawn of Intelligence shall spread over the eastern horizon of human progress, and Ignorance and Superstition shall have left their last footprints on the sands of time, it will be recorded in the last chapter of the book of man's crimes that his most grievous sin was that of Intolerance.

Life is not a goblet to be drained. It is a measure to be filled.

Hadley

Intolerance binds man's legs with the shackles of Ignorance and covers his eyes with the scales of Fear and Superstition. Intolerance closes the book of knowledge and writes on the cover "Open not this book again. The last word has been written."

It is not your Duty to be tolerant; it is your Privilege!

Sowing the seed of Intolerance is the sole and exclusive business of some men. All wars and strikes and all other forms of human suffering bring profit to SOME. If these were not true there would be no wars or strikes or other similar forms of hostility.

Used Tires as My Vegetable Garden

4 comments:
A friend of mine gave me used tires supposedly to be used as fish pen. Our house is near a river and my husband thought of placing the used tires underwater so we can have these fish pen. Six months has passed but he was not able to push through this project. During that time it already keeps on raining in our place. I've heard of the news that many people were already sick of the dengue fever. I know that the used tires can be one of the breeding grounds of mosquitoes as these are piled only outside our house. The rainwater have already accumulated inside the tires. The other day, December 12 2010, it came into my mind the idea of using the tires as my little garden. I have remembered what I saw in one of the houses in our neighboring place. They put soil inside the tires in a lying position. They planted different kinds of seasonal vegetables like okra, tomatoes, leafy onions, pechay and the native bell peppers. As of now, I have 30 pieces of available used tires. I have also a big deposit of loam soil at the back of our house. With all these materials needed, I started my vegetable garden with my used tires. Initially, I planted leafy onions and the native bell peppers . After I can have my seedlings of the other types of vegetables, I will continue to use the remaining tires. If this idea will click, I will expand my vegetable garden in the near future and maybe a flower garden specifically planting different kinds of roses.

The Law of Success Part 22

1 comment:
SERVICE, SACRIFICE AND SELF CONTROL ARE THREE WORDS WHICH MUST BE WELL UNDERSTOOD BY THE PERSON WHO SUCCEEDS IN DOING SOMETHING THAT IS OF HELP TO THE WORLD.

MAKE EXCUSES FOR THE SHORT-COMINGS OF OTHERS, IF YOU WISH, BUT HOLD YOURSELF TO A STRICT ACCOUNTABILITY IF YOU WOULD ATTAIN LEADERSHIP IN ANY UNDERTAKING.

NO ACCURATE THINKER WILL JUDGE ANOTHER PERSON BY THAT WHICH THE OTHER PERSON'S ENEMIES SAY ABOUT HIM.

THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG ABOUT THE MAN WHOSE WIFE AND CHILDREN DO NOT GREET HIM AFFECTIONATELY ON HIS HOMECOMING.

NO MAN MAY BECOME AN ACCURATE THINKER UNTIL HE LEARNS HOW TO SEPARATE MERE GOSSIP AND INFORMATION FROM FACTS.

TIME IS THE MIGHTY HAND THAT ROCKS THE ETERNAL CRADLE OF PROGRESS AND NURSES STRUGGLING HUMANITY THROUGH THAT PERIOD WHEN MAN NEEDS PROTECTION AGAINST HIS OWN IGNORANCE.

A CHRISTMAS MESSAGE

1 comment:
CHRISTMAS
is a time of giving -
an antidote to human
selfishness.



God exemplified
genuine giving when
He gave His Son to die
for the unworthy people
on earth.
Such gift can never
be repaid.
Such is the message of
the Birth of Christ.



It is better to give than to receive.
Give Love on Christmas Day.


Hoping that this Christmas and the Year Ahead,
May bring added joys and happiness and the best of everything.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Everybody.

Spiritual Reflection

1 comment:
I got this from one of my readings. It's nice to share this with my readers of this blog. I hope you like it.

When St. Louis Bertrand, of the Order of St. Dominic, resided at the convent of Valencia, there was a young Religious in the community who attached too much importance to profane science. Doubtless letters and erudition have their value, but, as the Holy Ghost declares, they should yield to the fear of God and the science of the saints. "There is none above him that feareth the Lord." This science of the saints, which Eternal Wisdom came to teach us, consists in Humility and Charity. The young Religious of whom we speak, while but little advanced in Divine Science, allowed himself to reproach Father Bertrand with his little knowledge, and said to him, " One can see, Father, that you are not very learned!" "Brother," replied the saint with meek firmness, "Lucifer was very learned, and yet he was dammed."

The brother who committed this fault did not think of repairing it. Nevertheless, he was not a bad Religious, and some time after, falling dangerously sick, he received the last Sacrament in very good dispositions, and expired peacefully in the Lord. A considerable time elapsed, and meanwhile Louis was nominated Prior. One day, having remained in choir after Matins, the deceased appeared to him enveloped in flames, and prostrating humbly before him said "Father, pardon me the offensive words which I formerly addressed to you. God will not permit me to see His face until you shall pardoned my fault and offered Holy Mass for me." The saint willingly forgave him, and the next morning celebrated Mass for the repose of his soul. The following night, being again in choir, he saw the deceased brother reappear, but radiant with glory and going up to Heaven.

A wishlist for Christmas

6 comments:
Yay! December is here and its time to think about presents. Well, I already thought and bought my presents a few months ago for my family in Philippines. I am glad that it arrived well there last month and they are planning to divide it on Christmas day. I already sent my brother the money he needed for his schooling and some money for their Noche Buena last week. I have two siblings and my mother is unemployed and my father is a security guard there, so I want to make sure they get a good Christmas celebration too. My hubby and I are quite tight in our money now because of the accidents plus we are expecting another baby. Overall, I just lift these burdens up to God and He will be the one to do the rest. I do not work so we can not send thousands nor millions of dollars to my family either. I am just glad that my husband is very understanding enough to carry my burdens.

My husband is not particular to the practical things he need. He is not a handyman either. I try to pick up manly things for him, but later on, I found them unopened nor used. So, I learned my lesson that I will buy what he really wants. He wants cds and music stuff that are his Amazon wishlist. He likes arts stuff too. I think he really wanted to have that GIMP book in Amazon which is around $66. He is very much into computer stuff and I guess I can buy that for him as a special material Christmas present. I also bought him 2 new jackets that I bought online last Black Friday sale. I was able to save $20 and a free shipping for a total of $80 for both jackets in clothingwarehouse.com. He is very picky when it comes to jackets too. He always wear his old jacket which is around 8 years old already and so many wear and tear in it. I kept on telling him we have to buy him a jacket, but it kept on being put off because we are too busy. Now, I got my chance and I can not wait to see him with it when the packages arrives soon.

Me, I usually liked to be surprised before, but now, I learned my lesson not to anymore. I remember my brother in law gave me a big frozen fish, wrapped in a gift wrapper during the Christmas day. While I was opening it, it was cold, wet and smelly, I do not understand what I felt when I saw what it was, I felt mixed humiliation and surprised about it. So I told them, give me a nice DVD movie or something for winter clothing. There are times that I get ambitious in my wishlist in my other posts, but theres nothing wrong to wish for those big things right? If they do not come to me, so be it. I am praying to Baby Jesus that I can save a good amount of money so I can also visit my family in Philippines with my kids after 3 years from now. That is my simple wish next to this wish above all, good health and happiness to our family and loved ones.
