Jannie Funster February 15, 2009 at 3:30 am

I remember how reading Helen Keller when I was about 10 changed my whole perspective. I truly started noticing little things then. Like the thrill of birdsong at dawn. The mid-September gold of late afternoon on the fields at my dad’s farm. The hush and sacredness of falling snow. And now add to those – the joy of my daughter’s laugh, the wonder of my sweet kitty-cat snuggling close on a cold night, the eyes and warm spirit of the man I was lucky enough to find and marry. Best and beautiful indeed! Makes a heart fairly burst.

I have to chime in like jannie and say how I clearly recall reading about helen keller when I was little and think “WHAT ON EARTH WOULD I DO WERE THAT ME?!”

I also clearly recall reading an article yesterday in NY Mag about a woman who is rapidly losing her sight and hearing and thinking: Id just be thankful to be alive still. here. as there are more important things than being able to see and hear—for me it is the heartimpression of another persons TOUCH.

(good thing Ive grown a bit in maturity since I was 8 :))

thanks for starting my sunday!

Hi Lance

I can feel my heart stir with those words. It is so appropriate what with Valentines Day fresh behind us.
All the cards and gimicky goods become the focus, when it is the love that is being celebrated.

If only more of us know it to be true. There is a tendency to look towards the physical side of things. We feel that we can only believe what we can see or touch. We mistakenly take comfort in material gifts, not realizing that the true magic lies in what comes from the heart.

Life is mostly about feelings. If we feel strong, we are. If we feel happy, we are.

Being able to be in touch with our feelings is vital to success. It’s these good feelings that help us get lost in the beauty of life.

So true. And in fact I’ve made a promise to myself to start living more by what my heart and gut tell me and giving my mind a rest. Touch, feeling seem to be lost these days and yet can guide us to great things.

Happy Sunday!

First, you always include extremely powerful pictures with your posts. Good job with that.
Second, Helen Keller and people like her are inspiring. I’d like to think that I’d be optimistic and motivating with the loss of my most powerful senses but I don’t know that I could! I’m always moved by people who can see the good in everything and who stand tall and strong no matter what. That is my goal. It’s something I work on everyday. I strive to see the good in everything and everyone.

And her words hit the ball out of the park: love is the ultimate sense!

I’ve heard people talk about the love you feel for your kids, but it’s not something you can imagine until you experience it. 🙂 It’s a look into God’s eyes . . . it amazes me how profound such an innocent little person can be . . .

What a wonderful way to start the day with the above picture and the quote from Helen Keller. Like Jannie and several others, I read about the life of Helen Keller when I was a child. Then later I saw both films of the Miracle Worker with Patty Duke and loved them both.

Maybe the courage and wisdom of Helen Keller is part of the reason that I had the attitude toward life that I have always had. I do believe that those trials and challenges that don’t kill you only make you stronger and more courageous. (Don’t know who that quote comes from and like most things I added to it at the end.)

My Sundays got so much better recently when I subscribed to your blog. You are like a breath of fresh air in the Sundays of my life. Thanks.

It’s funny how something as a simple as this can inspire the most complex feelings from within, and once that inspiration is expressed outward through a creative outlet, it becomes simple again with the power to inspire. Now that is a ripple effect and truly what the infinite circle of creation is all about.

I love how there are things in the world that can’t be seen or touched but we definitely see evidence of its existence. Love, joy, peace, God. There is great evidence of these. While we don’t have a problem accepting the existence of love, joy and peace, we sometimes need something tangible to prove the existence of God. I say open your eyes and look at the beauty of the universe, the purity of a child, the healing power of love. In these things and more, you will find your proof. God exists and he is more glorious than what your eyes could take in if you were to see his essence.

Hi Lance!

What an OUTSTANDING picture!!!! And what amazing truth your quote brings to us today. Indeed how can we describe to someone love for example, no matter what I may say or feel the other will never know unless they feel it too.

Or how about how so many go chasing pleasure from the things they can see and touch, but do not realize often the many times greater pleasure that comes from those objects that are just not “handleable”.

Enjoy your Sunday 🙂

A very close friend of mine’s mother is slowly losing her hearing and sight. Right now, both are nearly gone, and she’s having a difficult time dealing with it. She has the warmest heart, a great sense of humor, and is one of the bravest people I know.

She touches my heart each time I talk to her, see her, or think about her. I’ve tried various ways to get her interested in other activities, various techniques she might be able to use, directed her to agencies that could provided her with a few tools she might be able to use, but it’s not working.

I’m not sure what to do anymore. She knows how everyone feels, loving her so much, but I’m lost to try to help her.

Lisa, sometimes all that you can do is just continue to love the person. A hard lesson that I had to learn was that you can’t help someone who doesn’t want to be helped or who doesn’t want to look beyond their so called limitations. We are only as limited as we allow ourselves to be. Some people, Helen Keller being one of them, refuse to be defined by their limitations. The human spirit is capable of so much.

Lance,
Love the quote. It is the secret of life isn’t it. Seeing, hearing, touching… it’s not enough unless it touches our heart and we SEE with our heart. For me this happened when I met my husband and finally realised what love was all about. And then having babies of course. That’s a big heart opener.
I think Helen Keller carried another secret of life. She knew that it’s all in the attitude you have, the thoughts you think about a situation. Being deaf and blind could have made her depressed, angry and sad. But no, she was able to see the good in everything, learn a lesson from all that happens to us and be happy no matter what.
Thanks for a thoughtful start of the week.

@Jannie – I love these thoughts, Jannie! When we stop to realize what we do have in our heart, especially if we really do have love in our heart – it is enough to burst – and spread out and be shared with everyone it touches!

@Miz – You do have a heart of gold, Miz. It’s easy to get caught up in what’s wrong – and in the process lose focus on what is right. We can lose many physical abilities – yet, we can always control our heart. So, what you say – I still wonder what I would do – yet – I’m uplifted by what we can do with just our heart! So much greatness when we listen to what it (our heart) is saying…

@Natalia – Thanks much Natalia, hope your day was great!

@Juliet – That’s exactly my thought on this Juliet – how fitting this is in that Valentines’ Day has just passed. And a holiday focused on love – what a great time to look at love at a deep level. Thank you, my friend!

@Vikum – Hi Vikum. I think some people see more when they listen to their heart than others see with their own eyes. And I think that certainly listening to your heart put a different lens on your eyesight, as well. One filled with love and compassion for those around us.

@Julie – And, Julie, your heart shows in everything you write. They all shine from you! Continue to keep them alive – hope, faith, belief, and love…

@Evelyn – “If I only had more money”, or “If I only had a bigger house”, or “If I only had a more prestigious career”, or … When we focus on the materialistic items in life – we lose focus on what really matters – that which comes from deep within our heart. Thanks so much for this Evelyn.

@Amanda – Thanks for stopping by Amanda!

Lance February 16, 2009 at 6:21 am

@Karl – And feelings that originate from the heart, not from our superficial need for “things” – these are the truest of feelings – the ones that worth living for. Thanks Karl!

@Stacey Shipman – Really listening to our heart can be a very liberating experience. It can take us to places that, while they may seem unknown and scary, are also the places that really make our heart sing! And those are places worth traveling to! Keep doing that Stacey, you’re an inspiration!

@Angel – Isn’t that picture awesome! I know exactly what you’re saying. It’s one thing to say that we could do that too – what Ms. Keller went through. Yet, really thinking about it, I wonder. Even today, when conditions are much better for people with disabilities than they were in her time. And that just makes her that much more inspirational. So, keep on doing that Angel – keep on seeing the good – you’re changing lives daily when you do!!

@Bri – Wow, congratulations Bri! I think there’s special bond between mother and child – a love that is deep. And that is indeed a love that is felt within the heart. Cherish and love your new bundle of joy! And you will be an awesome Mom!!

@Arswino – This is a great quote by this very special lady! Thanks for stopping by.

@Jay – Compared to the life Helen Keller had, especially at the time period in which she lived – and yet all she was grateful for – makes us realize we are blessed in so many ways. Yet, you’re so right – how often do we forget just how much we have in our lives? Thanks Jay!

@Patricia – Spiritual Journey of a Lightworker – We all face trials in life. Yet…so many face those which are much more difficult. And that is a reminder that we have much to be thankful for. Easy to forget – I know. I’m working on this, working to get better about seeing the good. Thank you so much, Patricia – your words today are a light to start my morning – and it’s a blessing to have you here.

@Nicholas – Our heart is a powerful organ, especially when we really start to listen to it. And the ripple effect of letting that goodness out – how powerful that is! Thanks much Nicholas!

@Caroline – Listening to our heart – something we can’t be reminded of enough! Thanks Caroline!

@Tom – “Rudy” is a great example of this – of listening to your heart. Fighting through insurmountable odds – even if we fail – even if we don’t reach the spot we’d hoped for – is still so worth fighting for. It removes regret from our lives – when we focus on what really and truly matters.

@Laurie – We can’t see or touch some things – yet they can also be those things which matter most. And you make a wonderful point about God – when we just look around with our eyes and see His beauty around us – what great proof of a Higher Being! And, even if we can’t see with our eyes – the touch of another on our heart – is more proof of this existence of a God of true compassion. Thank you Laurie.

@Henie – Hi Henie! That is beautiful! Thank you so much for your words, that really have been spoken from the heart…

@Evita – I love that picture too! I see it as when two (or more) come to work together in love – amazing things can happen! Love has to be felt – a wonderful thought Evita, and one that gives hope to all – in that we all have the ability to feel love within our hearts – regardless of our physical abilities. And a great point about chasing the materialistic – trying to get that internal love. And the truth is – the love that comes from our heart cannot be bought. Thanks for this Evita, very much, your words ring true.

@Bunny – Helen Keller is a wonderful person to share this – and her words still hold true today. Thanks for stopping by Bunny.

@LisaNewton – Hang in there Lisa. And don’t stop fighting for her. I can’t imagine how difficult that must be to go through – losing hearing and sight. I’m sure there is a process to get to acceptance of this – and you can just continue to be there for her. Continue to show her your heart.

@Nicole – Thanks for stopping by today Nicole – glad you enjoyed this one!

@Mimi – Sometimes it is another person in our life who can really help us “see” life in a different way. And when that is through our heart – how beautiful it is! And you bring up a great point – her attitude. In the many odds she faced in life, she tackled it all with such a great attitude! And that’s a great way to open your heart up to the possibilities that can be. Thank you for all of this, Mimi!

@Henie – Thanks for sharing that quote Henie – it fits so perfectly with this here!

@Rupal – I think she strikes a chord because of all the obstacles she faced – and yet the person she was – that was not limited by all these obstacles. And how does that bode for us today? We all can learn from her – and just continue to listen to what comes from within – seeing the world so much clearer. Thanks, Rupal – your words are spoken with much love…

@Carla – That’s a great point Carla, about the distractions we have in our life today.

It’s so important to make time for really listening from deep within – a powerful way to get to what truly matters to us…

How often do we rely solely on our senses that work properly? Helen Keller learned the depth of “seeing” without vision by listening and feeling with her heart. I know that many times I have overruled my heart because of what could be seen and I was wrong. Intuition is a very powerful gift indeed.

Lance, I love the picture you chose to go with the quote, people out in nature, expressing together, what Helen Keller had in mind. The figures silhouetted against the sky, suggest to me that when it comes to the kind of love felt with the heart, details such as clothing, skin or hair color, facial features, or jewelery, make no difference. It’s what they feel that is important. And what they feel is beautiful, even though it cannot be seen.
