if the truth hurts, do something different
Thought for EVERYDAY:
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning
Face it, friend - God is crazy about you! >

strive for perfection just the same."
The Aquarian is said to live on the rainbow. The catchword for this sun sign is friendship. However, despite their penchant for friendships, very few people get into their inner circle. Aquarians are one of the most misunderstood specimens on the globe, but they don't go out of the way to correct that impression. The Aquarian sign is the sign of the genius; the majority of those in the Hall of Fame are born under this sign. Fierce independence is the most striking characteristic of the Aquarian, very closely followed by his creativity. They are focussed on the future. Social causes find champions in Aquarians, and leadership comes naturally to them. If you want to keep your Aquarian Man, be sure to let him retain his freedom, as well as his individuality. He craves love and nurturing but prefers not to reveal it. Anger will make him distant; there will be no temper displayed. The intellectual approach will work better than emotions with this man. Your Aquarian female is a rare quintessential specimen. She needs her space and your trust -- no display of jealousy if you really want her. She will match her wit with you and will never be the clinging vine. The other air signs, Libra and Gemini, and the fire signs Aries, Leo and Sag are the soul mates of this sign.

"I have been touched by an ancient god, made new and young.
I have shared my essence with those in need and those who wanted to.
I have learned to love me and love the world unrestrictedly and blindly,
I have learned to be light in darkness...

In perfect love, in perfect trust.

An harm ye none, do what ye will.
What ye send forth comes back to thee,
So ever mind the rule of three.
Follow this with mind and heart,
And merry ye meet, and merry ye part.

"What lies before us
and what lies behind us
are small matters
compared to what lies within us.
And when we bring
what is within us
out into the world,
- Henry David Thoreau
When kindness has left people, even for a few moments, we become afraid of them as if their reason had left them. When it has left a place where we have always found it, it is like shipwreck; we drop from security into something malevolent and bottomless.
by Willa Cather
The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.
Leave the rest to God...
The five simple rules of happiness are:
1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.

the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the

Lisa Goodman´s Sun signs...
I may have defects, live anxiously and sometimes become irritated, but I never forget that my life is the biggest company of the world, and that I can avoid that it goes bankrupt.
To be happy is to recognize that life, is worth living, even with all its challenges, misunderstandings, and its periods of crisis.
To be happy, is to stop being the victim of problems and being the author of your own story. To cross deserts outside of yourself, and to find the oasis inside your soul.
To thank God for each morning for the miracle of life. To be happy, is not to be afraid of your own emotions. It is knowing how to speak about yourself. To have the courage to listen to a "no". To have the strength to receive a criticism, even when unjust.
Stones in the road?
I save every single one, one day I´ll build a castle.
- Fernando Pessoa - portuguese poet.
translation by Isabel Gallagher:
Posso ter defeitos, viver ansioso e ficar irritado algumas vezes mas, não esqueço de que minha vida é a maior empresa do mundo, e posso evitar que ela vá à falência.
Ser feliz é reconhecer que vale a pena viver apesar de todos os desafios, incompreensões e períodos de crise. Ser feliz é deixar de ser vítima dos problemas e se tornar um autor da própria história.
É atravessar desertos fora de si, mas ser capaz de encontrar um oásis no recôndito da sua alma.
É agradecer a Deus a cada manhã pelo milagre da vida. Ser feliz é não ter medo dos próprios sentimentos. É saber falar de si mesmo. É ter coragem para ouvir um "não". É ter segurança para receber uma crítica, mesmo que injusta.
Pedras no caminho?
Guardo todas, um dia vou construir um castelo...
- Fernando Pessoa...
Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be happy.

My workartist, painter of esoteric themes and anything to do with art. I also do sculptures, poetry, whatever catches my fancy. I also like to fiddle around with craft work, and I am a major philosopher who loves to confuse the masses and then bang! it suddenly makes sense to them (unless they are really stupid)!
I´M AN AQUARIUS WOMAN: faithful, detached, unemotional, witty, bright, adaptable. This is not your home-body. She is too unpredictable to be tied down to household duties. Aquarius especially tends to be logical and identified with a particular belief system or philosophy. She is faithful, but must have her freedom to explore her whims and erratic ideas, She is often found in politics, education, scientific, or technical fields. She is not suspicious, so a mate would have to be boldly unfaithful for her to notice. But once she is sure, she will walk away and there would be no making up with her. She is stubborn. Aquarian women are usually beautiful with long, flowing hair. They have charming manners and are usually very proper, then suddenly they pop out with something totally shocking. She is drawn to an unconventional man who will not be possessive. It would help if he were a genius. She may enjoy innovative sex.
Don't smother your Aquarian girl with too much closeness, she needs her space and will give you, yours too. Things like suspicion, possessiveness, chauvinism and criticism turn her off.
Just be nice to her odd bunch of friends and she will warmly welcome yours into the house. Make use of her intuition and insight, it may help you in solving a problem or two. It may seem like wishful thinking now, but then, remember she looks in the future. She has sharp perception. She is a natural rebel to old customs. She always analyses situations. She has a high degree of psychic precognition, premonitions and telepathy is easy to her.
Aquarius, the Waterbearer, the Revolutionary (Jan 21 to Feb 19)
Aquarius is a Fixed and an Airy Sign and its symbol is the Water Bearer. Its lords are Saturn (Negative)& Uranus (Hershel)
Aquarius throws off a powerful light. Why? Because once he finds what he believes in, heaven and earth cannot make him change. Aquarius thus becomes a beacon for us all. Aquarius dances to the beat of a different drummer -- and that's a beautiful dance. Aquarius has the ability to see the big picture. In order to do this, however, he steps away from convention and status quo. This makes him look odd to the rest of us. I once had a friend who lamented, "If you call Aquarians "weird" they think you've given them a compliment." Aquarius is wonderfully truthful about what he sees!
Aquarians basically possess strong and attractive personalities. They fall into two principle types: one shy, sensitive, gentle and patient; the other exuberant, lively and exhibitionist, sometimes hiding the considerable depths of their character under a cloak of frivolity. Both types are strong willed and forceful in their different ways and have strong convictions, though as they seek truth above all things, they are usually honest enough to change their opinions, however firmly held, if evidence comes to light which persuades them that they have been mistaken. They have a breadth of vision that brings diverse factors into a whole, and can see both sides of an argument without shilly-shallying as to which side to take. Consequently they are unprejudiced and tolerant of other points of view. This is because they can see the validity of the argument, even if they do not accept it themselves. They obey the Quaker exhortation to "Be open to truth, from whatever source it comes," and are prepared to learn from everyone.
They are nearly always intelligent, concise, clear and logical. Many are strongly imaginative and psychically intuitive, so that the Age of Aquarius, which is about to begin, is much anticipated by psychic circles as an age in which mankind will experience a great spiritual awakening. The Aquarian philosophical and spiritual bent may be dangerous in that it can drive the subjects into an ivory-tower existence where they meditate on abstractions that bear little relevance to life. On the other hand it can help the many who have scientific leanings to combine these with the Aquarian yearning for the universal recognition of the brotherhood of man, and to embark on scientific research to fulfill their philanthropic ideals of benefiting mankind.
Both types need to retire from the world at times and to become temporary loners. They appreciate opportunities for meditation or, if they are religious, of retreats. Even in company they are fiercely independent, refusing to follow the crowd. They dislike interference by others, however helpfully intended, and will accept it only on their own terms. Normally they have good taste in drama, music and art, and are also gifted in the arts, especially drama.
In spite of the often intensely magnetic, forthcoming and open personality of the more extrovert kind of Aquarian, and of their desire to help humanity, neither type makes friends easily. They sometimes appear to condescend to others and take too little trouble to cultivate the acquaintance of people who do not particularly appeal to them. They do not give themselves easily - perhaps their judgment of human nature is too good for that - and are sometimes accounted cold. But once they decide that someone is worthy of their friendship or love, they can exert an almost hypnotic and irresistible mental attraction on them and will themselves become tenacious friends or lovers, ready to sacrifice everything for their partners and be faithful to them for life. However, they are sometimes disappointed emotionally because their own high personal ideals cause them to demand more of others than is reasonable. And if they are deceived their anger is terrible. If disillusioned, they do not forgive.
