Buddha said

“You cannot run out of smiles.”

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world. Speak or act with an impure mind and trouble will follow you. As the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart…speak or act with a pure mind and happiness will follow you as your shadow, unshakeable.”

What is Truth

This poem is written by Robert Reidy who resides in
Rosendale/Tillson, New York in
our beloved Ulster County, New York

You may ask
Poet, what is truth?

I will tell you

Truth is many things
And you may add to this list

Truth is the laughter of children
And delighting in the success of another,
Or holding hands to a color-filled sunset
Spreading your joys-getting over the toys
Uplifting everyone you encounter
Comforting the oppressed,
Lending a hand
Making a meal for someone else
having the time
beholding the mystery of not knowing
to look up and be amazed by the stars
winking back
to make love slowly
to communicate honestly and become more authentic

fall in love with yourself
and find your unique
capability, ability, talent or gift
and nurture it to fullness
for to know yourself is to love yourself
be ready to forgive, and forgive yourself
cultivate the art of not being offended

laugh at yourself
laugh at others
and enter its healing power
be willing to give
from what you have become
gather together as family
and be fans of one another
build and develop friendships
be there for them
and delight in their uniqueness
sing and dance to their successes

exercise and be aware of your body
feel it and believe in your wellness
open to the beauty that surrounds you
and know that beauty to be love itself
saturating all there is
believe in humanities potential
be positive
be happy
be at peace
become love
become the love that you
already are.

Know this to be the Truth

Smile With Me

This song is written by Laura Moliter. She is an extraordinary woman and spiritual healer, who has been there for me and The Revolution since it began. Thanks, Laura, for all of your good work including this inspired song.

“Give me a little smile
And take my little smile
And we’ll just smile awhile
So everyone can see.

I may not know your name
But our world is the same
With all the fear and pain
A smile can set us free.


Smile with me
Laugh with me
Love with me
Smile with me…

I need your healing smile
To get me through the miles
This journey lasts a while
A smile will ease the way.

And when you can’t smile
Can’t find that happy child
I’ll be there with a smile
To brighten up your day.

Repeat chorus

A smile has power
An angel in our darkest hour
Come from a holy place, but easy as a breeze…

Give me a great big smile
And take my great big smile
And we’ll just smile awhile
For all the world to see.

I’d like to know your name
Your smile can stop the rain
Make rainbows come again
Your smile can set us free.

Repeat chorus

The Smile Revolution Radio Show

“Your radio show makes me happy. I am anxious and look forward to hearing your show. I try to stay home on the hour of your program each week. Listening to your show gives me a lift and if I am feeling down, it picks me up. I called my sister on the phone when you first started your show and I took the phone to the speaker for the whole show, since she lives in another town, so she could hear it. She loved it! Also, it made her feel happy and taught her lessons to straighten out her frame of mind as she wasn’t feeling well physically and was feeling sad. After hearing your show, she’s been smiling and very happy. She used to complain a lot and now she stopped! She said she felt like a new person. She loves the smile songs too.”
