Focus on Life Week 13 and 1st Reveal of the 7th Annual Bead Soup Blog Party

“I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. That is clear. Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we all are seeking something better in life. So, I think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness…” Dalai Lama

This week's Focus on Life is "Have Faith".  This is what Sally had to say, "There are many of us wheo are religious and there are many of us who are not, but most of us religious or not have faith in someone or something.  A faith that gets us through our day, a sickness or even a death.  Faith is held by each of us, it is what keeps us believing that there will always be a positive outcome even if we can't see it at the time."

“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” Dalai Lama

Head on over to the Studio Sublime to check out everyone else.

Today is the 1st Reveal of the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party.  Head on over to Lori's site and check out all the participants.

I will be hopping later today and tomorrow.  Right now I want to finish this blog post, enamel pendants and a custom order piece, assemble the custom order piece and our Bead Soup piece.  While I am doing that mom is working out in the garage cleaning since it is so nice out.  Plus she wants to move all the sawing back out into the garage so she has her kitchen counter space back.


  1. Love your post and have the same philosophy, too. All I need is within myself. Off to ck out your bead soup!

  2. The Dalai Lama is a very smart man

  3. I've always liked that sticker. It would be so wonderful if we could embrace our differences and learn from each other instead of rejecting someone's ideas because they don't believe the same way we do.

  4. Love the Dalai Lama quotes- very nice post.

  5. Beautiful post - and picture: I love Dalai Lama, I always did; and he's absolutely right: if we treat each other with kindness nothing else is necessary. Where we, as humans, go horribly wrong is that we get into the "if you aren't with me, you must be against me" philosophy... which is wrong on so many levels! Kindness and acceptance - may you find them :)
