For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

A Palindrome

A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite.

This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant. Make sure you read as well as listen...forward and backward.

This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old. The contest was titled "u @ 50" by AARP. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause. So simple and yet so brilliant.

Take a minute and watch it. I think it is sooooooooooo cool! And the meaning even better!



Now tell me who said words and the way they are said are not important?



Happy Birthday to Richard Bach - wikipedia -

Bach espouses a consistent philosophy in his books: Our true nature is not bound by space or time, we are expressions of the Is (see: Non-duality), we are not truly born nor truly die, and we enter this world of Seems and Appearances for fun, learning, to share experiences with those we care for, to explore—and most of all to learn how to love and love again.[citation needed] Bach's philosophy is strongly influenced by the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy's Christian Science, which teaches that evil, death, and rebirth are illusions, and that our true nature is timeless, infinite and perfect. Bach was a member of the Christian Science Church until the early 1970's.

I am not sure what all that means, but he does have a great quote I like:

I GAVE MY LIFE TO BECOME THE PERSON I AM RIGHT NOW.
WAS IT WORTH IT?

A good question to ask yourself...
