    When Children Learn

    When children learn that happiness is not found in what a person has but in who that person is,
    When they learn that giving and forgiving are more rewarding then taking and avenging,
    When they learn that they canít control the world around them, but they are masters of their own souls,
    When they learn that relationships will prosper if they value friendship over ego, compromise over pride, and listening over advising,
    When they learn not to hate a person whose difference they fear, but to fear that kind of hate.
    When they learn that there is pleasure in the power of lifting others up, not in the pseudo-power of pushing them down, When they learn that praise from others is flattering but meaningless if it is not matched by self-respect,
    When they learn that the value of a life is best measured not but the years spend t accumulating possessions, but by the moments spend giving of oneís self-sharing wisdom, inspiring hope, wiping tears and touching hearts,
    When they learn that a personís beauty is seen not with the eyes but with they heart; and that even though time and hardships may ravage oneís outer shell, they can enhance oneís character and perspective,
    When they learn to withhold judgment of people, knowing everyone is blessed with good and bad qualities, and that the emergence of either often depends on the help given or hurt inflicted by others,
    When they learn that every person has been given the gift of a unique self, and the purpose of life is to share the very best of that gift with the world.
    When children learn these ideals and how to practice them is the art of good living, they well no longer be children-they will be blessing to those who know them, and worthy models for all the world.

    .....when they learn to have the patience to read this posting
    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.


      Assallaamu 'alaikum,

      Kashmir behaan,

      thanks for sharing such words of wisdom. There is much truth in them and i'm sure a reminder for all of us to question our characteristics.
