Healing Says

Aloha Friend!

Welcome-


The voice of healing

of simple love,

of God. . .



is not in the words of the orator,

in 3-D IMAX surround-sound

or in the whirlwind. . .




it is in the still, small voice

that brings instant clarity

and relief. .
.



Truth is not in sweeping ideology

but in simple humanity

and mutual respect.

We may disagree

but to defeat or humiliate

is not the same

as to convince.

Make a friend - not a point!

And I beseech thee

to think you may be wrong.

To say your piece

with the authority of your love

and to abide results

with dignity.


Warmly,
cloudia

Truth is easier to discern when coupled with wisdom. I sometimes wish I could explain that to my children...
