No Happy New Year from me to you - I don't believe in seeking 'HAPPY' - I believe in 'making Beautiful' and a sideline from this is feeling happy/satisfied/purposefull


Two Ways
Eberhard Arnold 

One goal is to seek the person of high position, 
the great person, the spiritual person, the clever person, the fine person, 
the person who because of his or her talents or achievements represents a peak, 
as it were, in the mountain range of humanity.
The other goal is to seek the minorities, the physically and mentally retarded, 
the prisoners, and the despised; the degraded, the enslaved, 
the exploited, the weak, and the poorest of the poor.

The first goal aims to exalt the individual. 
The other seeks the wonder and mystery of God becoming human 
by seeking the lowest place. 
Two completely opposite directions! 
One is the self-glorifying upward thrust.
The other is the downward movement to become human.
One is the way of self-love and self-exaltation. 
The other is the way of God's love and love of one's neighbour.

"work like you don't need the money
dance like no-one is watching
sing like no-one is listening
love like you have never been hurt"
