Ripples v8.31: Ripples of SECURE SOULS!
7/31/06: a FREE splash from Paul & The Ripples Project
I believe that in our constant search for security,
we can never gain any peace of mind until we secure our own soul.
-Margaret Chase Smith
The soul is dyed
the color of its thoughts.
Think only on those things
that are in line with your principles
and can bear the full light of day.
The content of your character
is your choice.
Day by day,
what you choose,
what you think, and
what you do
is who you become.
Quick, secure your soul!
How? Well, that depends on you. Today’s pebble states that in order to feel “secure” we must begin with our soul. The boulder suggests that we need to begin with our thoughts, and move on to our choices and actions. I am going to spend this week “securing my soul” by posting positive words around my office. Words like ASTOUNDING and MOMENTOUS and VIBRANT. Even creating the list was, well, momentous! Perhaps you can create your own list of words to ponder? If that doesn’t sound interesting then brainstorm some other activity to help you focus your thoughts and choices so your SOUL will be more SECURE by the end of the week!
If you want to see my list, I posted them quickly here:
Have a SPECTACULAR and PROVOCATIVE week!
