The Gift of Wit
O, for the gift of wit - Mahatma Gandhi
A lovely little anecdote, about one of life's more interesting characters.
When Mahatma Gandhi was studying law at the University College of London a white professor; whose last name was Peters, disliked him intensely and always displayed prejudice and animosity towards him!
Also, because Gandhi never lowered his head when addressing him as he expected; there were always "arguments" and confrontations!
One day; Mr. Peter`s was having lunch at the dining room of the University, and Gandhi came along with his tray and sat next to the professor. The professor said: "Mr Gandhi, you do not understand. A pig and a bird do not sit together to eat."
Gandhi looked at him as a parent would a rude child and calmly replied: "You do not worry professor. I'll fly away." and he went and sat at another table.
Mr. Peters; reddened with rage, decided to take revenge on the next test paper, but Gandhi responded brilliantly to all questions.
Mr. Peters; unhappy and frustrated, asked him the following question. "Mr Gandhi, if you were walking down the street and found a package, and within was a bag of wisdom and another bag with a lot of money, which one would you take?"
Without hesitating; Gandhi responded, "The one with the money, of course."
Mr. Peters; smiling sarcastically said: "I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom."
Gandhi shrugged indifferently and responded: "Each one takes what he doesn't have."
Mr. Peters; by this time was fuming. So great was his anger that he wrote on Gandhi's exam sheet the word "idiot" and gave it to Gandhi.
Gandhi took the exam sheet and sat down at his desk, trying very hard to remain calm while he contemplated his next move.
A few minutes later; Gandhi got up, went to the professor and said to him in a dignified but sarcastically polite tone: "Mr. Peters, you autographed the sheet, but you did not give me the grade."
Whether this is a true story or not... I think you will relate to it on many levels (smile). Have a Vibrational day, Debbie A. Anderson
A New Day Has Begun
Today marks the 13th anniversary of September 11, 2001 a day when more tragedy fell upon your world.
Sadly when a disaster takes many from earth, your soul awakens to see the truth that is within you. This awareness is a change that has to happen for peace to occur within and without the vibration of your life, your world.
You are the guardians within our Universe. We invite you all to be part of the vibrational change to heal your planet.
As part of your journey you will undertake many experiences. See many events unfold before you, some that will bring the vibration of joy, others that will make you want to cry and give up upon your fellow man. Don’t despair, these are human experiences and feelings, part of the path the earth chose. This is why you are here at this Universal time.
This moment in time is associated with the number 13 (1+3) which is the vibration of the energy of inner wisdom, patience and the building of solid foundations. It is the passion and drive within you and your world- both positive and negative.
This number resonates with the sense of renewal and sharing of knowledge. It is the voice from within that doesn’t strike out with anger but with compassion and understanding manifesting into practical reality. This responsibility is not easy, and can be unpleasant in a self-sacrificing way, so be aware of this element, honour it, but don’t take it to heart.
The firm foundations that you build within this time is about patience and persistence without becoming an oppressor or bully. The vibration of endurance creates serenity and harmony.
Manifest changes in a creative and harmonic vibration through the use of your voice – spoken or words sung share the spiritual realms of cooperation, thus opening the gateway to illumination.
We on the spirit plane are guiding many of you into awareness of change. A transition that has been opening up for the past five years with a vibrational change that brings natural order back to earth. This transformation is not simple or easy to accomplish. But with us all working together without judgement or negative thoughts the vibration is lifted to a higher plane of order.
Remember this day with others, but hold the hope that universal change is within your own soul.

As we awaken the vibration within, so the healing begins and we learn to love and live.
