    Wonderful! This should be the human code of conduct 🙂

    Take care Alan.

  8. 🙂 Hmm, how true.. Most of us fail to fulfill the later.. In fact, all many do is to keep practicing and sharpening the first…

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Sometimes it’s great to belong in the minority where we can see eye to eye with respect and love.

      Looking forward to turning the tide around — goodness in majority! 🙂

    In a way, that’s like the difference between hearing and listening. Seeing through one another is passive, like hearing… blah, blah, blah but none of it really “sticks.”

    I’ve never felt so connected with my spiritual life until I started blogging… When I’ve needed prayer, my friends have seen my through.

    Your post is a good reminder of how blessed we are to have each other. 🙂

    • bendedspoon Says:

      You made me smile with your blah, blah, blah 🙂
      I have been so blessed too ever since I started blogging 8 months ago. I never expected to have this great connections with all of you wonderful people.
      When the time comes that I will no longer write I still want to support everyone by reading and commenting sincerely.
      Thank you Linda for the blessing that you are 🙂

  11. Debbie Says:

    That is what you do, sweet Rea, with these quotes and blog posts that touch our hearts and minds, seeing us through our days and weeks. 🙂 God bless you and all you do!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Deb thank you so much for appreciating whatever I have in here. I said it before and I am saying it again, I am only good as long as I can hear my Guide.

      We have been seeing each other through and I’m so grateful for that! Love you Deb 🙂

  15. Ann Says:

    Thank you, Princess Rea.

    This is a beautiful thought. Truly ‘no man is an island’ 🙂 Thanks for helping me keep my balance.

    “You’re my brother, you’re my sister
    So take me by the hand
    Together we will work until He comes
    There’s no foe that can defeat us
    When we’re walking side by side
    As long as there is love
    We will stand! ”

    Here’s Avalon…


    • bendedspoon Says:

      Thank you for sharing this one Ann. I listened to this earlier before I go running and you made me cry. I listened to it when I came back and still it made me cry. May be due to the sad news on the tsunami or just may be what we all need at all times — a brother and a sister who will hold our hands as we walk side by side.

      You have been a very good and understanding sister to me since day 1. We’re sisters, we’re princesses!

  16. Rea, What a wonderful truth you have posted! Jesus calls us to love our neighbor (and our enemy) and help to see them through. Peace, Linda

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Linda thank you for reminding me to love our enemy. I’m trying because I wouldn’t want them to inflict further pains.
      You bless me so much with your blessing of peace 🙂
