When I was young, I prayed to God that I might change the world. In middle age I realized I havent changed a soul, so I changed my prayer that I might change my family & Id be happy. In my old age, I saw no change at all, then I decided to finally pray that I might change myself eventually, all those around me would show signs of changeAdapted from Suffi Bayazid
The two seas in Palestine: the Sea of Galilee, a large lake with clean water & life in it. The other is the Dead Sea, every-thing about it is dead. Both get water from same source; the first flows into the sea, the other keeps its water within itself
Remember > the more we give of ourselves, the more we grow, > we can never give what we do not have. > it is important to become the best version of ourselves, > what we are is Gods gift to us, what we become is our gift to God
Take-home Messages: > the best thing to give your enemy is forgiveness; > to an opponent, tolerance > to a friend, your heart; > to your child, good example; > to a father, esteem; > to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; > to yourself, respect; > to all men, charity. Our respect for the childs right to progress gradually along the path of growth would prevent us from trying to hold him back and keep him in a phase of development that he would naturally wish to grow. Montessori
Education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the richness of human potentialities. MontessoriWe know how to find pearls in the shells of oysters, gold in the mountains, and coal in the bowels of the earth, but we are unaware of spiritual gems, the creative nebulae, that the child hides in himself when he enters this world to renew mankind. Montessori
Mastering ourselves is often a bigger job than mastering the elements of science and the world. Psychologists tell us that often we dislike in others the qualities that we tolerate in our lives.When Christ spoke people often felt uncomfortable because He looked at them as they really were. Do not judge lest you be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged. Matthew 7:1-4

Turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones: God Who promised His continued presence in my life will never leave me unattended: He will help me find a turning point where change may begin. There is never a journey without making the first step forward, especially if it is toward growth and transformation. May you attain full knowledge of God through perfect wisdom and spiritual insight. There you will lead a life worthy of the Lord & pleasing to Him in every way He rescued us from the power of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of His Beloved Son. Col. 1: 9b-13

Myers-Briggs Personality Types, Your Best Fit Type, and an introduction to the 16 Personality Types - Part 1http://www.personalitypathways.com/type_inventory2.htmlUnderstanding your Personality Type & the MBTI Characteristics & Profiles of the 16 Personality TypesBy Ross Reinhold, with Danielle PoirierSometimes a person who has been introduced to Myers-Briggs MBTI Personality Type may feel drawn to several as potential "best fit."There are many ways to explore solving this dilemma. One is to look at which of the four preference options you think or feel is borderline. (For example, you may be uncertain if you prefer "Thinking" or "Feeling.") Looking at one borderline preference produces 2 different type possibilities (example: INTP vs INFP).
Another method of verifying your BEST FIT MYERS-BRIGGS TYPE is to look at temperament descriptions. Sometimes the two type alternatives are drawn from 2 different temperaments and thus comparing temperament differences is instructive. Handbooks by authors Berens and Nardi can be helpful. [ . . . One word of caution. The four basic Kiersey Temperament categories are the most helpful. The Kiersey descriptions of 16 types (using the MBTI type code designations) - as found in the book "Please Understand Me" - are not recommended. They do not necessarily follow the accepted type model . . . nor are they as well researched . . . so they are as likely to muddy the water for you as help.]
A third method, and one found most helpful, of narrowing the search for BEST FIT MYERS-BRIGGS TYPE is advocated by consultant Danielle Poirier.
This involves first noting the dominant function of the alternative types you are considering.
If they are different form one another, the d
