"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."

Albert Camus (1913 - 1960)

Even in the deepest darkness, we can provide our own inner light.

Too often people allow outside forces to influence those things are can only truly come from within. Happiness, for example, is a state of mind. People choose to be happy, regardless of the outside circumstances. Sure things happen, and we react to them. But we can always choose to have summer in our attitude, even in the frozen bowels of the worst winter.

This is quite close to yesterday's quote!

Our discussion in the classroom this morning brought us back around to the video, "What the Bleep do we Know?" and the thought that we create our own reality.

And I totally agree with the first comment above. There is an incredible POWER in our ability to choose how we feel, how we respond, and how we perceive the world around us.

"What the Bleep do we know?" is quite interesting video, though thre is parts of it that I feel are complete crap.

The water crystal stuff is, in my opion, the very epitome of bad science and basing (and publishing) work based on sloppy and inacurate results.

Oh, and finding out in the credits that one of the most credible sounding 'authorities' was a mystic channelling someone from the past was also very disappointing.

I remember the moment I discovered this to be true. Some years later, I read Camus' words & they made me smile, as I thought, I remember learning that little secret.

A friend & I were discussing the quote just a few months back.

Deja vu.
