“Perhaps it is good to have a beautiful mind, but an even greater gift is to discover a beautiful heart.” -John Nash
I’m glad to meet a guy in one of the races who not only helped me with my concerns, but as he shared with me his vision, I realized that he has a ‘beautiful mind.’ Allow me to use that two words taken from a true to life movie in 2001, starring Russel Crowe as John Nash. Well, the guy I’m referring to opted to be called ‘anonymous’ and mind you, unlike in that movie where the lead character John Nash, an asocial but briliant Mathematician who develops schizophrenia (inabiltity to take care of personal needs, decreased sensitivity, delusional thoughts) this ‘anonymous guy’ is competent, brilliant and very professional in his own way.
I’m a living proof that he’s true to his words, what he said he will do, a mark of a true gentleman!
And he chose not to be mentioned, not to be put on a pedestal of praise. In a world where ‘bragging about good deeds’ is rampant, where almost everybody wanted his/her name be written on a frontpage for a charity bestowed, this guy is different.
And with that Sir, I salute you more. You have not only a beautiful mind but a beautiful heart as well.
Even the Bible has this to say…
“[But] take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise you will have no heavenly recompense from your heavenly Father. When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets to win the praise of others. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that almsgiving may be secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you. -Mathew 6:1-8
Of course, that pertains not only in giving of alms, but in every good deeds we render to our neighbor, big or small.
Sir Anonymous, again, thank you…you don’t know how you touched and inspired me with those deeds, and in my own little way, let me return the favor by praying for you continually…
Let me end with this…
“Friends are an integral part of your life, but every friend you have must live life at their own pace. When the time comes and they must leave you, there is no need to grieve over their parting from your life. It is the very essence of life that it should be so. But it hurts nonetheless and we grieve nonetheless, but we hold them in our hearts forever. Always cherish the joy, laughter, memories and love that they have brought into your lives. Always remember them with a warm smile for what they have given you. -A Beautiful Mind quotes
God be Praised!
Did you know…
… that today, besides being Halloween,
is South Pole Landing Day? In 1956, Admiral G. J. Dufek was
the first person to land an airplane at the South Pole.
