In thinking about serenity and realizing its great value, we would love to be serene all the time. But this is not possible in the world in which we live. In the totality of our lives we will experience a wide range of human emotions, not all of them the ones we would choose for ourselves if we could have total control over our feelings.
So now we have a choice. We can acknowledge our emotional reality at any given moment and from there work our way to true serenity. Or we can deny our true feelings. We may deny our insecurities, anxieties, worries, frustrations, disappointments, etc., and think that because we want to be serene, these feelings do not exist. Let us state clearly: Only by being in touch with your feelings will you be able to truly experience serenity.

Why Taps is Played At Funerals
If any of you have ever been to a military funeral in which taps was played; this brings out a new meaning of it.
Here is something Every American should know. We in the United States have all heard the haunting> song, 'Taps...' It's the song that gives us the lump in our> throats and usually tears in our eyes.>>>> But, do you know the story behind the song? If not, I> think you will be interested to find out about its humble> beginnings.>> Reportedly, it all began in 1862 during the Civil War, when> Union Army Captain Robert Elli was with his men near> Harrison's Landing in Virginia . The Confederate Army was on> the other side of the narrow strip of land.>>> > During the night, Captain Elli heard the moans of a soldier > who lay severely wounded on the field. Not knowing if it was > a Union or Confederate soldier, the Captain decided to > risk his life and bring the stricken man back for medical > attention. Crawling on his stomach through the gunfire, the > Captain reached the stricken soldier and began pulling him > toward his encampment.. > > When the Captain finally reached his own lines, he > discovered it was actually a Confederate soldier, but the > soldier was dead. > > The Captain lit a lantern and suddenly caught his breath and > went numb with shock. In the dim light, he saw the face of > the soldier. It was his own son. The boy had been studying > music in the South when the war broke out. Without telling > his father, the boy enlisted in the Confederate Army. > > The following morning, heartbroken, the father asked > permission of his superiors to give his son a full military > burial, despite his enemy status.

Old Woman An old woman rode up, got off her old mule and tied it to the hitching post. As she stood there, brushing some of the dust from her face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other. The young gunslinger looked at the old woman and laughed, "hey old woman, have you ever danced?" The old woman looked up at the gunslinger and said, "no,... I never did dance... Never really wanted to." A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said "well, you old bag, you're gonna dance now," and started shooting at the old woman's feet. The old woman prospector -- not wanting to get a toe blown off - started hopping around. Everybody was laughing. When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon. The old woman turned to her pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled shotgun, and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air, and the crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young gunslinger heard the sounds, too, and he turned around very slowly. The silence was almost deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old woman and the large gaping holes of those twin barrels. The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old woman's hands, as she quietly said, "son, have you ever kissed a mule's ass?" The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "no ma'am... But I've always wanted to." THERE ARE FIVE LESSONS HERE FOR ALL OF US. 1 - Never be arrogant. 2 - Don't waste ammunition. 3 - Whiskey makes you think you're smarter than you are. 4 - Always make sure you know who has the power. 5 - Don't mess with old people; they didn't get old by being stupid.
