What Rabbit Hole …

alice

You know the one I mean. The one too many people aren’t seeing or pretending they’re not seeing, as if it’s just a fantasy in some fairytale book. But I’m speaking reality here. The one where we (humanity) have fallen down into Alice’s rabbit hole – for real! Not many words needed since you know of what I speak. In fact, lately there are too many words and not enough positive action and therefore I would like to suggest the following:

Love while you can.

Love who you can.

Love when you can.

Love all you can!

Whether large or small

doesn’t matter at all!

No blaming game

It comes out the same.

when all is said and done,

We are  all One!

Period!

With much love and affection,

Do You? Take the time to …

remembering …

to be, just to be!

I Call Your Name!

By AcrylicArtist

~

To be Thought of.

To be Needed.

To be Special, have a sense of  Purpose, of Value.

To be Considered “Of Importance”.

… Just by having one’s name called.

To be not-forgotten, to be real, to be alive.

… Just by having one’s name spoken.

And whether it’s whispered, or said aloud with reverence, respect, care, love, and concern – well then … life is just about the best thing ever … when someone calls your name …

*Because in that moment – you know you matter!

~

*Don’t forget – your children (to the youngest of the young), your parents (to the oldest of the old), your other family members, your friends (those you know and those you haven’t met yet) Your pets and all animals in the wild, our living planet. Call their names – reach out, the loving touch and vibration of your thoughts and voice will reach them, striking a warm harmonious chord and they will know they matter! As all life has the right to know and feel!

Whispered Words Carried on the Wind – Love All Others!

The Strongest Force of Nature – Love!

Whispered words when carried in the wind become an unstoppable raging,

thundering force of Nature – when you put the full weight of your emotions behind them!

“LOVE All Others as You Would Have Them Love You!”

Don’t give up! Believe!

Have faith in who we can be by caring with gentle thoughtfulness.

Believe in a better future.

Believe in the good we have within us.

Turn our loving whispers into roars – the time is now!

LOVE! HONOR! CHERISH! RESPECT and care for

… all life!

It is so precious, as are you!

WAR and KILLING go hand in hand – always!

Let our hand in hand be with one another, reaching beyond our differences where we can learn to honor and respect each other … all of us.

Love to you all, every single one of you wonderful amazing people who live on the planet Earth, our one and only home that we all share!

Why there are rude, nasty people out there today!

It’s because they have forgotten author Robert Fulghum’s wise words regarding what many of us learned as kids.

“These are the things I learned (in Kindergarten):

1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don’t hit people.
4. Put things back where you found them.
5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
6. Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
7. Say you’re SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
9. Flush.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life – learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Stryrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup – they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned – the biggest word of all – LOOK.”
― Robert FulghumAll I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

I think we’ve got the “Looking” part down pat, but most of the other rules, the ones related to good behavior seem, for many, to have gotten lost. And it feels like the more we stress “social correctness”, the more we see the breakdown of basic, good, everyday manners. Our politicians and other “people in the news” are certainly among some of the worst. But we’re (the private individual) not far behind them. Just go online for any subject, in any social media to find the very worst of how humans can be.

Don’t get me wrong, the very best is out there too, but there are those days when it seems we have to wade through the negative to get to the positive. Come on guys, knock it off. We’re better than that.

When we’re out there making a positive difference and helping others we illuminate the best of who we can be. And sadly there’s not an “app. for that”, so it’s up to us. Let’s be more focused on what’s right and less on what’s wrong.

And let’s be polite and show respect (this includes politicians of all parties). We’re getting darn tired of our politicians behavior, and I believe I speak for most Americans, even though we may individually disagree on a given issue, we all expect better of those we’ve elected to represent us in our government.

So that’s all – just so very weary of negativity. Hopeful for lots more positiveness, which is when things really do happen – for the better.

Have a positive “rest of your week”,

Love me – No more, no less!

What every partner in life deserves from the other!

Aimez-moi – ni plus, ni moins!

Si tu m’aimes, alors m’aimer de cette façon.

Ni plus ni moins que ce qui suit …

me traiter comme égaux,

mais chérir moi comme quelqu’un de spécial.

Soyez fidèle à moi, en pensée, en parole et en acte,

m’aime plus que n’importe qui d’autre – jamais.

Soyez là quand j’ai besoin de toi,

faire une différence dans ma vie,

Soyez mon amant, compagnon et confident

Vous qui je peux faire confiance avec tout mon coeur.

Est-ce trop demander?

Je ne le pense pas.

Je vous demande juste de me donner que ce que je vous donne.

Pas plus, pas moins.
