This is a place for any profound thoughts we might have. Anybody is welcome to post any profound thoughts you might have had recently, or any not so profound thoughts. It may be updated daily or maybe not a post for two months, depending on how much thinking we have done lately...

A bad mood is contagious, like the common cold. And like a common cold, the best way to keep from spreading a bad mood to other people is to keep your mouth shut.

In business and in life, if you want something real bad, than you are likely to get it bad if you rush too hastily.
The business triad for wanting something Good, Fast or Cheap - pick two, and you will not get the third - has application to life and relationships as well.
Where Cheap can represent relative costs in personal sacrifices and efforts not just money.

I'm sitting here next to a Ficus (rubber tree plant). I can't see it growing, but I am absolutely certain that it is. The proof is in the paper-thin protective tips from new leaves that occasionally fall to the floor beneath.

A thought occurs to me: that's a parable of spiritual growth.

My potentially profound thought did not live up to its full potential.

This reminds me of that quote:

“Feed your faith, and your doubts will starve to death”.

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day, teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.

THE TALE OF TWO WOLVES:

ONE EVENING, AN ELDERLY
CHEROKEE BRAVE TOLD HIS
GRANDSON ABOUT A BATTLE THAT
GOES ON INSIDE PEOPLE.

HE SAID "MY SON, THE BATTLE IS
BETWEEN TWO 'WOLVES' INSIDE US ALL.
ONE IS EVIL. IT IS ANGER,
ENVY, JEALOUSY, SORROW,
REGRET, GREED, ARROGANCE,
SELF-PITY, GUILT, RESENTMENT,
INFERIORITY, LIES, FALSE PRIDE,
SUPERIORITY, AND EGO.

THE OTHER IS GOOD.
IT IS JOY, PEACE LOVE, HOPE SERENITY,
HUMILITY, KINDNESS, BENEVOLENCE,
EMPATHY, GENEROSITY,
TRUTH, COMPASSION AND FAITH."

THE GRANDSON THOUGH ABOUT
IT FOR A MINUTE AND THEN ASKED
HIS GRANDFATHER:

"WHICH WOLF WINS?..."

THE OLD CHEROKEE SIMPLY REPLIED,
"THE ONE THAT YOU FEED"

Each day is an opportunity, a choice to encourage someone and to build God’s kingdom.

If you want to hear something profound, don't ask me. (that is the most profound that comes out of my fingertips this morning....)

And:
Life is like a good cheese. It tastes better when it is matured. (but store it well, and don't wait until it is molded)
