Strangers.


Who/what are strangers?

I just realized reading today's different Blog posts, that "strangers" is an unfamiliar term for me.

Convinced that I am a part of all and that all is a part of me, nothing and no one is strange.

Now, if I were a member of one exclusive of another or all, some would be strangers.

I to them and they to me.

I sometimes think I may be strange or a stranger to some.

I'm not sure who or what I would consider strange.

Different? Unique?

I consider the parts of my body. Except for the pairs, one part does not look or act like another but is not strange.

Each together is truly ONE.

How do I feel about that?

Whole.

Gratitude.


What is missing in modern society?

I feel that modern society is missing gratitude.

It seems that people have forgotten how to be thankful for the simple pleasures of life.

We all are so busy on our cell phones or rushing to our next “important thing” that we don't take time to slow down and enjoy the blessing of a gentle breeze on our face or the laughter of a small child.

God is in all these simple pleasures of life.

When we are connected to God we know that we have everything we need.

Normal.



What does 'normal' mean to you?


What?






Empty.

I am not alone.


Do you give yourself enough time?


When I look around at the life and activity and progress and achievement happening around me, I sense that I am the only one who has enough Time.

I happen slowly. Rarely feel rushed. I've been noticing this about me more and more. Either I am getting slower and slower or the rest of the world is going faster and faster.

Or maybe it's the direction that is different. Deeper and/or higher.

It doesn't disturb me that signs may be that I am "not with it". Rather, being one of Blogger in the Blogosphere, I know I am not alone.

If I am doubtful about that, I simply make a moment to check-in here.

And I know that I am in Love.

I am.

What do you love most about your life right now?
That I am here right now.

This is just another NOW. And I will to be here for every NOW to come.

Every moment is different.

Each absorbs every essence that I am at that moment;
yet, my spirit's curiosity urges me into the next.

Sometimes it is the desire for more of the moment and sometimes the desire to escape.

Whatever the moment, "I AM that I AM" is in IT and is IT and I AM, too.

Silence.



What makes you feel safe?



Silence. The empty space that exists when the world steps back and fades away.


The silence is what cradles me, and gives me solace. When the chatter dissolves away, and all that is left is the essence of truth. When I can peer out into the darkness and feel the weight of the words that are unspoken. The silence is where the words go to hide, and when I enter the silence, I can bear witness to their power. Together, we join with the silence, and agree to live in harmony. Quietly. Silently.

The Secret.

The power of The Secret is within each of us. It is much like the reflection of a mirror. What we think and what we send out to the world will return back to us.

Maybe this story is a good example of how the secret works:

I was at lunch yesterday with some people that I work with and one of the men at the table was talking about negative things and he was not in the best of moods. The waitress came to take his food order and he told her what he wanted. He sounded like he was being fake nice to the waitress when he ordered his food. The waitress was trying to be nice but I don’t think she liked how the man sounded when he ordered the food. When the waitress walked away the man said he didn’t think the waitress was being nice to him.

The man was so involved in his bad mood and negative thinking that he couldn’t even see that he wasn’t being pleasant to those around him, and he thought that those around him were not being pleasant to him.

The man got in a better mood after a while. The other man and I were talking about positive things and I think our mood rubbed off on him. It was interesting to me how each of our moods could change the moods of others.

I believe The Secret in this story is that each of us can change our world in either a positive or negative way. Our thoughts create our reality.

Love.



What do you believe about Love?






Love cannot be simplified into mere words. Anyone with a clear voice and the mind to do it can put forth words of love without having any feeling behind them. Love instead resides in the things we do and do not do out of genuine appreciation and sincere adoration for another person.
