The heart is forever inexperienced. - Henry David Thoreau

Just when I think I understand something... I wonder if I know anything at all!!! That is why I am a "need to know" girl and continually seek solid wisdom and knowledge. Even without consciously looking for truth, understanding and affirmation... we are bathed in it ... just poke your head up and look around... there is so much learning to do!!!! :D:

Love this question Lion. I am one of the curious ones I want to know everything about everything. I can never know enough. It is about one week before finals for me and I have been slaving away in the computer lab writing programs to finish my projects and while I have learned alot about computers this week I will not bore you with that.
I have learned that even when it feels like my brain is gonna explode I can I always stuff more information in it...somwhow.

Love,
Amy

Today I learned that with enough patience, perserverance and communications we can help others to achieve great things, help them to see their own self worth, help them to be thinkers from "out side the box", instill pride and desire in the hearts of the most difficult. Today I learned the meaning of success. :D

Today I learned to really appreciate the things I normally take for granted...like the color of the sky, the rustle of the trees when a breeze blows through them, or the smile on someone's face as they walk past you. It's the little things that make all of the difference!

How wonderfull it is to wake up one day and see what beautiful things are within our sights. Too many of us get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life that we see past the obvious.

I love life. I love the different perspectives, differnt experiences each day offers to us.


Today I learned a little about you!

I must say, all the things that I tend to learn are more material than spiritual.

Today, I've learned and reviewed some Chemistry. I think that's far enough.

Immaterial lessons I have learned today?

Not today in particular, but in the past week, since I've joined Inspiration Peak.

Before, I tended to stick to one Forum. This Forum was used by a lot of people, with as many as 800-900 posters online in every single moment.

But the size in numbers does not reciprocate amount of good content. In fact, I've noticed that there has been a lot of irrational arguments between two or more parties who refuse to accept the other side's argument. I've seen flaming, unprovoked insulting of someone else.

I did learn one thing from these Forums; to be constantly prudent, and to carefully word everything I say.


When I joined the Inspiration Peak, I was pleasantly surprised at the gentle and caring audience here - in contrast to the other Forum that I visited. Here, I've felt more welcome than I ever had in the months of my usage of the other forum.

I can be free to express my opinion, and I can share experiences with others here, without anything coming between us.

One thing I've learned now is

Through warmth and kindness, someone will bloom. Otherwise, one will never go forward, or will feel freedom. Posting is not a contest, but an opportunity to share ideas. Kindness results in kindness.


Really, I have to thank all the wonderful people I've met here at Inspiration Peak so far. You've taught me a life lesson, and I will always remember it.

...in the words of the Dalai Lama...my religion is simple...my religion is kindness......to me that speaks volumes in those simple yet wise words

...in the words of O W Holmes...you cannot do a kindness too soon for you never know how soon it will be too late...to me that means starting each and every day with kindness

love ladybird luv

Here is a definite lesson that I've learned today.

Earlier this year, I joined the Junior Volleyball Team. I had not played in quite a while, and I needed quite a bit of work.

The team I am playing on, let's say, have not been to successful. From the beginning of the year, we've seen defeat after defeat.

Today was different. I had almost sprained my thumb yesterday, and I found that I had forgotten some of my gear. In other words, I was totally depressed before the game even started.

But we won. Our intense training after all those failures proved to be something. We each did our part, getting some points in, spiking, passing, acing our serves...nothing stopped us.

Before the game, I could see the anxiety and worry in everyone's eyes. After - victory! success!

We have to believe. It helps nobody to convince yourself that a failure is at hand and inevitable.

We have to push on, through all our hardships, forget our past failures, and invest in the present and future; for that's what really matters.
