Rain

 
The Spring rains have made it here to Central Illinois....

Basement floodings, roads flooding, soggy yards, stuck back inside after being able to be outside for a few weeks now....

Yuck...

But a necessary "evil", lol...

We need the rain! With little snow this last season, we haven't had the moisture for the plantlife...

Throughout our lives, and even at times it seems, daily... A little rain falls, sometimes, it feels like a thunderstorm, a tornado, a hurricane...

But its necessary... These trials and tribulations make us better, and stronger.... They help us to grow, mentally, as well as physically....

You can't build your physical body, without exercise, constant exercise... Pushing your physical self, to improve and make healthier....

The same can be said of your mental self... 

It requires constant use to maintain quick responses, and flexibility... Testing it, pushing it to make it better....

I've been told that brain inactivity can be linked to alzheimers disease, and that by doing crosswords, and mental exercises can help to ward it off....

So, while as you get challenged mentally, remember, this is how you grow, [i]mentally...[/i]

Right now, both in this Temple, in your physical life, at your work, people are going to challenge you, your beliefs...

We are here, a collection of similar people, with similar thoughts.. And when we are able to converse with a person of a different opinion, we should embrace this opportunity to expand our mental prowness...

Seek to understand...

It doesn't mean you have to agree... Many times, we won't...

If both parties are fully entrenched in their ideas, beliefs and values, then you just have to agree, to disagree....

But, this might be only in one area of life in which there is disagreement... In every other area, there might be total agreement...

And, don't let a discussion deteriorate to the point anyone is mad, reason goes out the window at that point....

Just as in the physical world, walk away... Its only a conversation...;)

Its only a little rain... It stops soon enough....

Have a good week....

May the Force be with You...
