The Most Dangerous Loaded Weapon … FEAR!


handgun-by-photojogtom

Fear dilutes common sense often including one’s own personal sense of responsibility … even as it strengthens the emotions of hate, cruelty, disdain and indifference … sadly at the expense/risk of yourself and others.

With so many  troubled souls, so much turmoil and terror currently in our world it seems to me that by encouraging love, understanding and forgiveness; by strengthening friendships and coming up with thoughtful measured solutions, we can confront mutual problems and situations and through unity bring about peaceful resolutions for a more prosperous world for all.

No, not easy by any means, but I truly believe most doable. I also believe in the loving human spirit existing within humanity as a whole, resting deep within the hearts of billions of every day people … just like you and I.

“Don’t allow the emotion of fear to become a weapon against yourself, your neighbors and your fellow humans. We are all in this together, truly!”~ Plh

Thank you kindly, I wish you well!

The Way Forward

It’s been an interesting time period, I’m thinking. There’s a palpable unease in the air filtering through our emotions, thoughts and actions.

We’re feeling uncomfortable about a wide range of things (most related to what I refer to as “a money thing” but that’s a whole n’other story) and politically speaking it doesn’t matter where you are in the whole conservative/liberal spectrum. It really doesn’t. What matters (at least to me) is that there is too much division between friends, communities, states, countries. This current state of affairs is most unhealthy – rather obviously, one would think … so how best do we move forward.

In my humble opinion I like to think it’s a matter of going back to the root of things. Nourish the base. In our case it’s families first. What can we do to positively improve our families immediate culture. After that it’s community. What can we do to positively impact others that are needing support.

So often it’s small things that make a huge difference. One person, one thing, one day at a time. This is the way forward. Not finger pointing, shaming, or blaming. Just getting out there and making what you do count. In a positive proactive way.

The strongest roots of the healthiest trees are deep and kept fertile. Time to go back to our roots. remember some basics that we each can accomplish. Values in a home environment. Support in a local community. Love and concern and action for those less fortunate. We can each become the nourishment to strengthen our human roots.

So doable. So possible. We can do this. Yes we can.

Think well of yourself. Think well of others. Begin from there,

I wish you most well,

Every Day Wisdom – Taking Responsibility, a Key to Success!

cropped-motivation_succeed-t3.jpg

*

When you see a problem, you address it, hands on. If you find a solution to the problem then you put it in motion, following the process through, making sure it’s the correct way to go. If you are unable to find a solution to the answers you seek, you don’t stop there, you ask for help from those who are better equipped to assist you with your problem. But you don’t stop until there is complete resolution.

The one thing you don’t do is stick your head down and wait for someone else to fix a situation that left unresolved may turn into a more serious problem down the road.

Those that take responsibility for not only their own individual actions but also by seeking out solutions to other problems in their immediate environment, job or community, contribute to the further well being of themselves and all those around them.

If you’re an entrepreneur, and take personal responsibility for resolution and problem solving you’re creating a proactive, productive and creative atmosphere for both your employees and/or potential customers. A good trade off I’d say. Best of all you can go home feeling very good about a day’s progress.

On a final note: Opportunities are everywhere. When you take personal responsibility for figuring out how and what you’re going to do next – even with the “inspite of’s” (such as unemployment, student debt, unanticipated crises, illness, or any combination of these) you are well on your way to success whether you know it yet or not. You will be successful because you’ve created the best mental and emotional attitude possible for becoming successful. You’ve decided to be responsible for the actions in your own life by doing whatever you need to do to make it happen (and not blaming where you are – in the moment – on other people or factors) ~ Anything is conceivable if you believe it to be so. Always remember this. It’s a powerful affirmation to know and believe in. Trust me on this one.

Just know I’ll be rooting for you because I know you can do this. That you have what it takes … YOU GO ON!

When Elephants Cry

image

Did you know that elephants cry?

They do. And even though many scientists attempt to scientifically explain away these reoccurring elephant tears towards a non emotional based rationale, most people do recognize the truth.

Elephants are intelligent, caring and loving mammals. Period!

Which leads me to wonder if they know of their own plight towards extinction. Don’t  be too quick to discount the wisdom in nature.

I believe, at some level of awareness they do know, as do other damaged and endangered species.

My hope and dream is that we can do more to stop and overcome the cruelty and killing of not only our own kind but all life on this, our awesome planet.

“When the heart is filled with love embracing life, there is still room for caring and sharing … always.” ~ Plh

I Remember When

image

Every now and then
I remember when
it simple used to be
in thinking I was free ♡…

image

…life it all has changed
and has rearranged,
or is it really me,
yes, now at last I see ♡…

image

… freedom has a price
one we all must pay,
care for one another
every single day ♡…

image

… we can not survive
if hate and greed fill hearts,
freedom only works
if we’re not torn in parts ♡… ~ Plh

We are all of ONE Worldwide Community ~ let us care for one another! ♡

Be good to you too, have a great week ahead!

Thank you,

Quotes by the Dalai Lama ~ to share!

The most caring and compassionate person I have ever met! The  Honorable Dalai Lama! His kind and loving spirit, an excellent reminder to all of us on how to conduct our lives. (That’s me, the pale blonde on the right, the young lady next to me, my granddaughter!). Sharing here some of my favorite of his quotes:

*

“Be kind whenever possible – it’s always possible.”

*

“Our prime purpose in life is to help others, if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”

*

“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend – or a meaningful day.”

*

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.

*

Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.
