Second Week of June-The Wise are Who They Are

Benjamin Hoff in his excellent book “The Tao Of Pooh” reminds us of the story of the Ugly Duckling. The Ugly Duckling stopped feeling ugly when he released who he is-a swan. Hofff says:

Each of us has something Special…hidden inside somewhere.

But until we recognize that it’s there, what can we do but splash around, treading water?

The Wise are Who They Are.

They work with what they’ve got and what they can do.

The first thing we need to do is recognize our own Inner Nature, and not lose sight of it.

In each of us is something Special, and that we need to keep.

Id. at 64-65.

      I honestly value all of the hard labor you have done keeping this site going for all of us. I truly hope this is here for a good long time.

    3. It is weird to see just how many sites the internet has about this topic! I don’t know if I’m ever going to need to be back, but it’s good to know I stumbled upon the one that offers a little valuable information if this ever comes up for me another time.
