Listen as you read >> “Inspirational Motivation”

Throughout the universe there is order
In the movement of the planets, in nature, and in the functioning of the human mind
A mind that is in it’s natural state of order is in harmony with the universe;
and such a mind is timeless

Your life is an expression of your mind
You are the creator of your own universe;
for as a human being you are free to will whatever state of being you desire through the use of your thoughts and words
Ah! There is great power there

It can be a blessing or a curse
it’s entirely up to you
for the quality of your life is brought about by the quality of your thinking

Think about that!

Thoughts produce actions
Look at what you are thinking
See the pettiness and the envy and the greed and the fear;
and all the other attitudes that cause you pain and discomfort
Realise that the one thing that you have absolute control over is your attitude
See the effect that it has on those around you
For each life is linked to all life and your words carry with them chain reactions;
like a stone that is thrown into the pond
If your thinking is in order, your words will flow directly from the heart, creating ripples of love
If you truly want to change your world your friend, you must change your thinking

Reason is your greatest tool
It creates an atmosphere of understanding which leads to caring which is love

Choose your words with care
go forth with Love

The Sound of China

The most amazing tones from the Guzheng known as the Sound of China.

gutheng - sound of ChinaChinese Guzheng, related to Japanese koto, Vietnamese dan tranh and Korean kayagum, is one of the most ancient Chinese traditional music instruments.

The early types of guzheng emerged during the Warring States period. It was largely influenced by the se, a plucked stringed instrument. It became prominent during the Qin period, and by the Tang Dynasty, the guzheng was arguably the most commonly played instrument in China.

There are many techniques used in the playing of the guzheng, including basic plucking actions (right or both hands) at the right portion and pressing actions at the left portion (by the left hand to produce pitch ornamentations and vibrato) as well as tremolo (right hand). These techniques of playing the guzheng can create sounds that can evoke the sense of a cascading waterfall, thunder, horses’ hooves, and even the scenic countryside.
