  • Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now,
    you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way
    to someplace else. Your completeness must be understood by you
    and experienced in your thoughts as your own personal reality.

    - Wayne Dyer

    In our friendships, aren't most of us like the Indians,

    hundreds of years ago,

    who walked by the great rivers

    without realizing the immeasurable power and energy

    that could be drawn from them?

    All around us, every day,

    there are so many opportunities for love,

    communication, and caring.

    But we walk on by, self-absorbed and unseeing.

    We treat this abundance so casually,

    every hour throwing away potential riches

    of incalculable value,

    most of us never knowing

    what has been neglected, wasted, and lost.
