Everything You Need

Everything You need

As humans we are continually looking outside ourselves for guidance, strength and support . It needs to be remembered that you already have all the strengths and qualities you need within.  There are always times when we overlook this, due to fear, self doubt, anxieties, losses or disappointments.

Regardless of if we are aware of them or not, these strengths remain. These strengths are our connection with the God Source. While you are living, they are  with you, where else could they go?

This connection is always with you, it is through our own neglect and inattention that our contact with the higher source is lost. It only needs to be plugged in again , just like plugging a lamp into an electric socket. As soon as the connection is made, our link to the God within is established.

Once this is realized, and we learn to trust ourselves and our ties to universal consciousness, one can look at his life from a more engaged and compassionate perspective. In consequence, our lives become more stress free, enabling one to meet the world and it’s challenges head on while making clearer choices,  thus allowing us be become more settled and stable.

Short Lawyer Jokes

Short Lawyer Jokes

No, not jokes about short lawyers, but short jokes about lawyers.

A Bar Association charter flight was hijacked by terrorists. When the terrorists made their press release, they said that, until their demands were met, they would release one lawyer per hour.

A man sat down at a bar, looked into his shirt pocket, and ordered a double scotch. A few minutes later, the man again peeked into his pocket and ordered another double. This routine was followed for some time,until after looking into his pocket, he told the bartender that he had had enough. The bartender said, “I’ve got to ask you: what’s with the pocket business?” The man replied, “I have my lawyer’s picture in there.When he starts to look honest, I know I’ve had enough.”

Lawyer: someone who makes sure that he gets what’s coming to you.

An indigent client who had been injured in an accident went looking for a lawyer to represent him without cost. One lawyer told him that he would take the case on contingency. When the client asked what”contingency” was, the lawyer replied, “If I don’t win your lawsuit, I don’t get anything. If I do win your lawsuit, then you don’t get anything.”

Q: What do you call parachuting lawyers?
A: Skeet.

Q: Why are lawyers buried in deeper graves than regular folks?
A: Because deep down, they’re really nice people.

Q: What’s the difference between lawyers and vultures?
A: Vultures can’t take their wing tips off.
A: The vulture eventually lets go.

Q: How do you greet a lawyer with an IQ of 50?
A: “Good morning, your honor.”

Q: What do lawyers use for birth control?
A: Their personalities.

Q: What’s the difference between a lawyer and a boxing referee?
A: A boxing referee doesn’t get paid more for a longer fight.

Q: Why should lawyers always be buried face down?
A: If they wake up, they’ll start digging.

Q: What is the difference between a lawyer and a leech?
A: A leech will drop off when its victim dies.

and…

Q: How many lawyer jokes are there?

Acceptance

Acceptance

We all find occasion to reject and resist another person. We all like to put up a fight against anything we dislike on the evening news as we spectate the world. But we forget that when we decide we will resist something or somebody, either mentally or physically, we only empower the object of our resistance, either in reality or in our own minds. If you want to enjoy the ability to influence, always start with acceptance. If you want to disarm another, begin with acceptance. If you want to encourage and empower another to change, start with acceptance.Don’t make it conditional. Otherwise it’s just resistance disguised as acceptance, and you are still trying to control them. And we can all smell a controller…can’t you?

I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon…
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shriveled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us to
be careful
be realistic
remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
“Yes.”

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the center of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.

Your Dog is Dead

A man rushed into the veterinarian’s office carrying his dog, thoroughly distraught. The vet examined the dog’s still, limp body and sadly informed the man that the dog was dead.

Saddened at the loss of his best friend, the man asked the doctor if he could please try one last time to revive the dog.

The doctor stepped into his other room and returned with a cat in a wire cage. He set the cage on the examining table and opened the sliding door.

The cat got up, stretched, stepped out of the cage and slowly walked around the dog from head to tail sniffing the body. When it was finished, it looked up at the veterinarian with a “meow”, walked back into the cage and went back to sleep.

The vet looked at the man and said in his best bedside manner, “I’m sorry, but there is nothing I can do.”

Resigned, the man signed and said, “Thanks for trying. How much do I owe you?”

“Three-hundred fifty dollars,” the doctor replied.

“Thr . . . thr . . .three-hundred fif-fif-fifty bucks to tell me my dog is dead!” the man stammered.

“Well, it was only $50 for the office visit. The other $300 is for the CAT scan.”

Inspiring Words of Wisdom

Inspiring Words of Wisdom

A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a large jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks about 2″ in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The students laughed as the professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks are the important things — your family, your partner,your health, your children — things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else. The small stuff.”

There was total silence as the students absorbed the lesson.

“If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal.”

The students started nodding in agreement at the professor’s profound wisdom .

“Take care of the rocks first,” the professor finished — “the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

But then…

A student then took the jar which the other students and the professor agreed was full, and proceeded to pour in a bottle of beer –and then another! Of course the beer filled the remaining spaces within the jar making the jar truly full.

The moral of this tale is:

That no matter how full your life is, there is always room for a beer or two.
