The Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Mythology Every culture in history has had a belief in the divine and a mythology to explain the world around them. Angry gods and goddesses might be the reason for a drought or why illness befell a village. If the gods were happy or pleased, sea voyages went well and there was a bountiful crop. In addition to explaining the toils and luck of daily life, the mythology and legends was a way to impart cultural values and parables to the following generations. but don't worry, GODDESS NAIVE IS ALWAYS HAPPY :-)
"You are powerful not because you can dominated the scene, but because you are being true to your self." without the make up or the sexy cloths The greatest gift we give one another is the gift of our natural selves. For some this is not difficult, but for most it takes practice to stop the games they play, take off their masks and return to their natural selves. Our natural self is filled with strength, life, energy and enthusiasm. It has no fixed role, but moves, changes, laughs, speaks and cares easily. Its actions and responses are straightforward, appropriate to the situation and to what the moment asks of it. It has natural wisdom and timing. When we function from our natural selves, we become strong. It is easy then to succeed. This is available to everyone, but we are usually out of touch with it. When we live too much out of fixed images, longing for approval and social demands our natural self goes into the background. When we live too much out of the idea of who we "should" be, rather than who we "are" our natural self has no place to shine. In a sense, we are all like flowers longing for the light while we keep our petals closed. There is plenty of sun and light available, but if we are closed we to it we cannot feel the warmth. Most are accustomed to living their lives securely, encased within their set roles. This kind of living becomes automated and when we go on this way for too long it is easy to feel trapped, burnt out or unfulfilled. "A true man belongs to no time or place, but is the center of things. Where he is, there is nature." Emerson... SO LOVE YOUR SELF DON'T BE ASHAME OF YOUR BODY NO MATTER HOW SMALL OR BIG YOU ARE YOUR NATURAL SELF ARE BEAUTIFUL
How to spot backstabbers before it’s too late Try to detect from an early stage what the backstabber is interested in sucking from you. They might say they're your 'best friends' , but the moment your back is turned, they lie about you to others. No one wants to be hurt in this way, but how do deal with them?. Perhaps the following tips can help. Also do not tell them any secret that you want kept hidden, as they will tell it to another one of their "friends" the moment it will gain them something. All backstabbers share a common denominator; they all want something from you. Whether it is money, homework, a house to trash, your computer, your style, practically anything, varies from person to person. If someone is mean to you one minute and nice to you the next, there is definitely something wrong. Be aware of your surroundings. If you have a bad feeling about somebody, listen to your instincts! If somebody betrays you, don't trust that person again without extensive consideration. Notice the other person's work ethic. If he or she is lazy and irresponsible,and let's you do all of the hard work alone, when her or she know both of you are supose to do it together. stay away from the person as far as anything that requires hard work goes. If you work hard, he or she will use you in a heartbeat! Notice how he or she treats things you care about. For instance if you really care that your room is clean, and after you've explained this to him or her they still comes over, throws there backpack on the ground, takes his or her shoes off in the middle of the room and so on; this means he or she doesn't really care about you Again i say to you: Try to detect from an early stage what the backstabber is interested in sucking from you. Don't rely on the backstabber for anything; even the tiniest of things. In this way, you will avoid situations where you owe him/her a favor. This technique takes patience, practice and goes completely against your better nature. The backstabber will get the hint and move on the next sucker/victim Treat him/her like you would any other snake. Be polite when in his/her area but keep to the path, and maintain your distance. Make sure not to reduce to his level by saying untrue and bad things about him behind his back (this is a huge no-no!) as it will only spur him to action against you. Try to avoid revenge. This will create more problems. But if you simply have to get even, remember that the best revenge in this case would be hanging out with your best friends right in front of their face.
