Today, as I read through my WordPress Reader Feed, I saw Deo’s post: “Favorite Inspirational Quote on Perseverance by Goldie Hawn” As I read the first quote, I was reminded of a book I had read back in 2006 by Goldie entitled A Lotus Grows in the Mud. I had read her book during a very dark time in my life and I have to say, reading about her life’s journey as well as her ability to stand in the face of adversity while holding her head high, gave me much hope and inspiration. Towards the end of the book, Goldie explains the title of her book, which is essentially what is written below. If you haven’t read her book, I highly recommend you pick up a copy and no, you cannot have mine.
“The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But it will only grow in the mud. In order to grow and gain wisdom, first you must have the mud — the obstacles of life and its suffering. … The mud speaks of the common ground that humans share, no matter what our stations in life. … Whether we have it all or we have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying and death. If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one. ” – Goldie Hawn.
Deo, thank you for reminding me of such an amazingly inspirational woman!
I love it when hunters stop by my blog to let me know how much they hate me because I am the voice of the voiceless. “Killer”, as he (or she) likes to refer to himself is a hunter — he is pro-killing of animals. He (or she) likes to lurk and comment on a fellow bloggers site: Exposing the Big Game. Evidently, “Killer” thinks I am an alcoholic. LMFAO!!!! I am not really sure how Killer surmised I am an alcoholic. I guess he just didn’t get that the reason I am in therapy is because I was married to a pathological lying, cheating, narcissist — but no matter. It’s all good. I love it when hunters sling insults at me because it let’s me know I am getting to them.
This is what Killer had to say. Now I know I shouldn’t feed the Trolls but this is just too good to not share with my fellow animal rights bloggers.
So you are an alcoholic. That explains a lot. That explains why you are so conflicted, dishonest and angry. You need way more time with your therapist. I hope I see you around, then I can LMAO. Love and kisses, “BEAUTIFUL”
Based on my blog’s stats, Killer lives in Pleasant Hill, California and his ISP provider is Comcast. It would seem Killer has been lurking on my blog for some time now, well at least since August 17.
Everyone, let’s give Killer a big Dating Game sloppy wet kiss: SMOOOOOOOOCH!!!!!!
Girl for Animal Liberation.
Ajaytao has nominated me for the Super Bunch Awards – 30 Nominations.
Thank you Ajaytao. You are much too kind to me.
This is exactly the reason why animals should not be used for entertainment. These majestic animals were meant to be wandering the Serengeti, not performing stupid pet tricks for an audience full of humans. Unlike this blogger (who turned me onto this story), I sincerely hope that lion FUBARed (for those of you not in the know, FUBAR means: Fucked up Beyond All Recognition) the lion tamer –“tamer” – sha! what a joke!
Personally, I’d pay top dollar to watch a pack of lions rip circus “lion tamers” to fucking shreds! Now that’s what I call entertainment.
Lion – 1
Tamer – fucking ZERO!!!!
PLEASE DO NOT SUPPORT THIS INDUSTRY!!!
IF YOU WANT YOUR KIDS TO SEE WILD ANIMALS, TAKE THEM fucking AFRICA
for fuck-sake! Mkay?
