Where are we going is an excellent question. I don’t believe most of us (each with differing levels of experience and background) really know. We’re currently too busy putting up emotional barriers because, honestly, we’re overwhelmed with information.
Information/graphic/videos that change daily. Information that’s often not complete or accurate. Information based on hearsay, opinion and in some cases pure fantasy. Information being shared for the sole purpose of advancing specific agendas; be they for the purpose of selling something (products, services, ideas, beliefs, politics, etc.) and/or a deliberate attempt to steer us emotionally in different ways.
Remember each human is in their own place and time with their learning curve, so when exposed to large amounts of information, havoc becomes the norm for most of us as we’re continuously exposed to the daily online world’s onslaught of everything.
Consequencely, to discern, separate fiction from fact, to moderate within ourselves the value of various types of social media (which is also heavily corroded/intertwined with advertising) is difficult.
Therefore, with this in mind, for both increased health and sanity, let’s see how this may be accomplished by us. In the meanwhile …
Stay safe and strong. I wish you well.
“The mightiest battles waged are never seen or viewed,
but experienced deep within ourselves –
each and every one of us! No exceptions!”
~ Penny L Howe, 2013
These are true words. For our emotional battles we need to arm ourselves with the strongest of all weapons for overcoming insecurities, fears, doubts and hate: Love, Hope and Forgiveness.
Pure love needs nothing more.
Hope lifts us up and carries us through adversity.
Forgiveness allows us to let go and move on.
Each a mighty weapon to carry in our arsenal as we journey through life’s adventures!
Much love to all – I’m still mostly offline – but it’s a troubling time for many, just wanted to share a few uplifting words this week and remind you that you are not alone – “this place” in my arms is wide enough to wrap around every single one of you! Always remember – my home is your home – always!
Take care of yourselves,
I’m guessing that if I had to pick the person we most often doubt or think poorly of, it is ourselves.Today is a wonderful day to begin believing in yourself. Starting Now! Here are a few quotes to lead the way.
“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not!” Anonymous
“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”
Bruce Lee, martial arts master
One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.
The most important person in your life each day that will make a positive difference in how you proceed will always be you. Let today be that day, Be happy, be positive, make it so,
Have an excellent weekend,
If we could only choose the right ones for ourselves.
We see each day through our individual belief systems, going through life reinforcing what we think is already out there. In reality there are infinite possibilities, potentialities.
To produce a change try shifting your awareness. See the world with an uncluttered heart. Past experiences may be closing off your ability to be happy, move forward, embrace life.
FEAR brings Illusions
Illusions bring Doubts
Doubts bring Confusion
Confusion brings Fear
~ Thus the cycle of darkness regenerates itself ~
PEACE brings stillness
Stillness brings Knowing
Knowing brings Truth
Truth brings Freedom
Freedom brings Joy
Joy brings Love
~ And so it is that we grow in Light ~
Just a few thoughts to ponder and think on. Have a great weekend,
We are all on a journey through life and often times we make mistakes along the way. It is our children or our children’s children who will correct the mistakes at best or at the least ensure that they don’t happen again.

No one is immune from making poor choices. Today in many parts of the planet; we are now governed by our actions. But there is still so very much to work on. So much “we” the people of this amazing planet can do to improve.
Earth is our home and we are all connected whether recognized or not. Mere children of the Universe we have but one foot just barely out the door, tomorrow is waiting patiently for us to find one another and embrace all that we can be. We can do this. One step at a time – Penny L Howe
