this came to me as a nobel idea, to pakaofy the fellow blog readers with a Good Morning thought, to make it a bad morning to some extent if someone really happens to read it. So here goes today's...

Sacred space ;-)
Altruism: Action that benefits another person, including comforting,
helping, sharing, rescuing and cooperating. Acts of concern for other people
- without any hope of reward.

Why do You Share..?
A reporter once asked a farmer to divulge the secret behind his corn, which
won the state fair contest year after year. The farmer confessed it was all
because he shared his seed with his neighbors.

"Why do you share your best seed corn with your neighbors when you're
entering the same contest each year as well?" asked the reporter.

"Why sir," said the farmer, "didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen from
the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grew
inferior corn, cross-pollination would steadily degrade the quality of my
corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbor do the same."

And so it is with other situations in our lives. Those who want to be
successful must help their neighbors, friends, relatives to be successful.

Those who choose to live well must help others live well, for the value of a
life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy
must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with
the welfare of all.
