2001-10-22 12:04:37 -- One day he was walking along the shore. As he looked
down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer.
He smiled to himself to think of someone who would dance to the day. So he began to walk faster to catch up.
As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the
young man wasn't dancing, but instead he was reaching
down to the shore, picking up something and very gently
throwing it into the ocean.
As he got closer he called out,
"Good morning! What are you doing?"
The young man paused, looked up and replied,
"Throwing starfish in the ocean."
"I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing
starfish in the ocean?"
"The sun is up, and the tide is going out. And if I don't
throw them in they'll die."
"But, young man, don't you realize that there are miles and
miles of beach, and starfish all along it. You can't possibly make a difference!"
The young man listened politely. Then bent down, picked
another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking
waves and said,
"It made a difference for that one."

There is something very special in each and every one of us.
We have all been gifted with the ability to make a difference.
And if we can become aware of that gift, we gain through the
strength of our visions the power to shape the future.
We must each find our starfish. And if we throw our stars
wisely and well, the world will be blessed.


The Chicken
Once upon a time, there was a large mountainside, where an eagle's nest rested. The eagle's nest contained four large eagle eggs. One day an earthquake rocked the mountain causing one of the eggs to roll down the mountain, to a chicken farm, located in the valley bellow. The chickens knew that they must protect and care for the eagle's egg, so an old hen volunteered to nature and raise the large egg. One day, the egg hatched and a beautiful eagle was born. Sadly, however, the eagle was raised to be a chicken. Soon, the eagle believed he was nothing more than a chicken. The eagle loved his home and family, but his spirit cried out for more. While playing a game, on the farm one day, the eagle looked to the skies above and noticed a group of mighty eagles soaring in the skies.
"Oh", the eagle cried,
"I wish I could soar like those birds".
The chickens roared with laughter,
"You can not soar with those birds! you are a chicken and chickens do not soar".
The eagle continued staring, at his real family up above, dreaming that he could be with them. Each time, the eagle would let his dreams be known, he was told it couldn't be done and that is what the eagle learned to believe. The eagle, after time, stopped dreaming and continued to live his life like a chicken. Finally, after a long life as a chicken, the eagle passed away.

You become what you believe you are, So if you ever dream to become an eagle follow your dreams not the words of a chicken.



Daddy doesn't want to play with me
Once there was a little boy who wanted his dad to teach him how to play catch. One sunny day the little boy's father was sitting on the couch, drinking a beer, while watching a
baseball game. The boy rushed into the house exclaiming,
"Daddy, daddy, daddy, show me how to play catch!"
The father, blankly starring at the television screen, replied,
" In a little while son, let me finish watching this inning, come back in five minutes."
"Okay daddy", said the boy and ran out of the room. Five minutes later the boy returned screaming,
"Daddy, lets go lets play some catch now!"
The father turned to the boy and said,
"hold on son, the inning is not quite over come back in five more minutes."
"Okay, daddy", said the boy as he shuffled out the room.
Five minutes later the boy returned ball and glove in hand eagerly awaiting for his father to play some catch.
" Daddy, lets go, I want to be Ken Griffey Jr.!" shouted the boy
By this time, the father had cracked open another cold one and another inning was taking place.
Frustrated by the boys constant hindrances, the dad scanned the
room. While scanning the room the father notice a magazine underneath the coffee table. On the cover of the magazine was a large picture of the world. The father, who was angered and annoyed, began tearing the magazine cover in to
small pieces. After a few moments, of shredding up the magazine cover,
the father placed the torn pieces on the magazine. Then, the father turned to his boy and said,
"Son, once you put this picture of the world back together we can play catch, but do not interrupt me again until you are done!"
Apprehensively, the boy took the magazine and sulked into his room. As he sobbed,
"Okay, daddy I won't".
A few moments later the boy returned and said, "I'm done daddy can we play catch now?"
Stunned, the father glanced towards his child, and there in his small hands laid the magazine with the world pieced perfectly together. Amazed, the dad asked his child how he put the world together so quickly.
"It was simple" stated the boy
"On the back of the world was a picture of a
person, and once I put the person together that's when their world came together."

How do you try to fix the world before fixing your self?
Do believe the world has given you a lousy hand to play?
Do you Believe that if you had more money, a better car,
or a better job that you would have no problems?
When was the last time you turned inward to take a look at yourself?
