Quotes and health tip of the day... 8/9/13

One's destination is never a place, 
but a new way of seeing things.
     ~ Henry Miller

When you surrender, 
the problem ceases to exist. 
Try to solve it, or conquer it, 
and you only set up more resistance. . . 
The most difficult thing to admit, 
and to realize with one's whole being, 
is that you alone control nothing. . . ”
     ~ Henry Miller

The one thing we can never 
get enough of is love. 
And the one thing we never 
give enough of is love.
     ~ Henry Miller

Quotes and health tip of the day... 8/6/13

“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” 
     ~ William Shakespeare

are princesses who are only waiting 
to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless 
that wants our love.” 
     ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Love people as they are,
not as you would wish them to be.

Health Tip:  Heal sinus problems with horseradish - Latest studies show sinusitis is the nation’s number one chronic health problem. And this condition doesn’t just spur congestion and facial pain, it also makes sufferers six times more likely to feel achy all-over. Horseradish to the rescue! According to German researchers, this eye-watering condiment naturally revs up blood flow to the sinus cavities, helping to open and drain clogged sinuses and heal sinus infections more quickly than decongestant sprays do. The study-recommended dose: One teaspoon twice daily (either on its own, or in food) until symptoms clear.

"He dances on the grey."

“When I was a little girl, everything in the world fell into either of these two categories: wrong or right. Black or white. Now that I am an adult, I have put childish things aside and now I know that some things fall into wrong and some things fall into right. Some things are categorized as black and some things are categorized as white. But most things in the world aren't either! Most things in the world aren't black, aren't white, aren't wrong, aren't right, but most of everything is just different. And now I know that there's nothing wrong with different, and that we can let things be different, we don't have to try and make them black or white, we can just let them be grey. And when I was a child, I thought that God was the God who only saw black and white. Now that I am no longer a child, I can see, that God is the God who can see the black and the white and the grey, too, and He dances on the grey! Grey is okay.”
