Abandoning Embarrassment - Crosspost from Neale Donald Walsch

On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know...
...that embarrassment is a pointless experience.
You have permission to abandon it.

Replace it with self love and love of all others--and
love of the imperfections you imagine you see in both.
In truth, both are perfect in their 'imperfection,' for
'imperfection' merely means 'incompletion.'

So do not be embarrassed if you haven't (insert your own embarrassment here) yet. 
Rather, look forward to the
adventure of doing it.

Love, Your Friend....

10 Powerful Phrases from Gandhi - Crosspost from Collective Evolution

I don't know author Joe Martino, his philosophies or that of the group Collective Evolution, but I loved this post!  The original link follows the post.  Blessings for a wonderful Sunday!

"Mahatma Gandhi was a man that left man powerful messages to humanity before his time here was complete. Here is a list of 10 powerful phrases of wisdom he left to us all. One thing I wanted to add to this to help make it very practical is that for each one, try to see how it may relate to a certain instance or aspect of your life so you can truly begin incorporating this into your life. It is great to know quotes and phrases like these, but putting them into action is a big step to begin taking. Be sure to reflect on each one and see how you can make them a part of your life. Of course, share this list with others so they can do the same :)
1. Be the change you wish to see in the world
2. What you think, you become
3. Where there is love, there is life
4. Learn as if you’ll live forever
5. Your health is your true wealth
6. Have a sense of humor
7. Your life is your message
8. Action expresses priorities
9. Our greatness is being able to remake ourselves
10. Find yourself in the service of others
Some powerful words Gandhi left for us in his time. The important thing to remember is the very first phrase on here “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” If we are to truly make change here it is not about simply knowing or memorizing these phrases, we must truly live them and add them into our lives. Otherwise they are just words."

Sharing cross post from Master Herbalist Andrea Candee

This flu season, read up about how to combat flu and bolster your immune system.  Here is a crosspost from my favorite master herbalist, Andrea Candee.  During the H1N1 fear about 5 years ago, my daughters were both in college in Boston, and we were keeping the home fires burning here in New Jersey and New York.  I visited with Andrea.  An hour with her was a godsend and provided me with enough of an arsenal and understanding to help keep us all healthy.  Feel free to click through and read her blog and subscribe to her emails - definitely worth it.  In the meantime, here is a sample of her work.
