Moment Stop

A  L  O  H  A !
" In the name of God, 
stop a moment, 
cease your work,
 look around you. "
                        Leo Tolstoy

" We are all dreaming 
of some magical rose garden
 over the horizon 
instead of enjoying the roses
 that are blooming outside 
our windows today. "
                                          Dale Carnegie

Thank YOU!

Final Word for Janus

A  L  O  H  A !

“A single word can brighten the face
of one who knows the value of words.

Ripened in silence, a single word
acquires a great energy for work.

War is cut short by a word,
and a word heals the wounds,

and there’s a word that changes
poison into butter
and honey.

Let a word mature inside yourself.
Withhold the unripened thought.

Come and understand 
the kind of word
that reduces money 
and riches to dust.

Know when to speak a word
and when not to speak at all.

A single word 
turns the universe of hell
into eight paradises.

Follow the Way. Don’t be fooled
by what you already know. Be watchful.

Reflect before you speak.
A foolish mouth can brand your soul.
. . . 
Only the word “I”
divides me from God.” 
                                                    Yunus Emre

Thank You!
