We are body, mind and spirit all wrapped up into one. Each of us borrow the package during our time on earth. How we pamper or abuse our body and mind leads to how we are spiritually and how balanced we are. While we are spending time here, we can choose to enjoy our moments, having a magic carpet ride everyday. Only when we are healthy and it is then that we can constantly energized our body, mind and spirit.

Making A Difference

Once upon a time there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to
do his writing.He had a habit of walking on the beach before he
began his work. 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."

Each of us can make a difference to this world. Everybody is useful
and it is just the matter of whether u want to make a difference.
