If Everyone Took Responsibility for Something or Someone Else Today…

When things get put on automatic, when we allow ourselves to even think that ‘someone else is responsible’, ‘someone else can take care of it’, then we are headed downward and not upward in the grand scope of things.  We’ve assigned ourselves as Effect and not as CAUSE individually and collectively. IN essence, we’ve allowed ourselves to become irresponsible.

Questions: Do you want a better world, do you want a better community, do you want a better family, or a better marriage?  Then you’d better take responsibility for it! What could be worse than having a fight every month in your marriage?  What would be a problem you can think up that would be worse than that? A loss in several months of income perhaps?  or a family divided and not living together…YOU think that part up! and then what part of losing several months of income or a family divided and living separately could you be responsible for?  Don’t like the government?  Then decide that you’ll be responsible for some part of it and quit ‘leaving it up to someone else to do something about it’!  YOU/ME can do something about it…anything if we but just decide to do so but DO IT! Start at the family or local level…and be responsible for that. Take it upon yourself to communicate to others and then decide to listen to others, too.

Who or what can you take care of today?  Take responsibility for someone other than yourself.  Want a better marriage?  Then find something you could be responsible for in that marriage.  Is YOUR freedom and rights on automatic leaving it up to someone else to defend or protect this state or country you live in?  If you are not actively taking part, then TAKE YOURSELF OFF of automatic and do something about it instead of just taking care of Number #1.  And quit complaining about things the way the are…quit your petty gossiping and your petty grievances and get into ACTION. If we could each of us do this just today, it would be a better world almost instantly.

Decide this moment to take responsibility for others than yourself today.  

I AM RESPONSIBLE. 

I CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND I’M IN ACTION NOW.

Allies

An *ally, by definition, is someone or a group, club, league, etc., that another bonds to in a spirit of cooperation for growth, protection, support. For what purposes one may ally with, there are many. If it is in the spirit of love, help, and fostering of good, then allies are certainly invaluable.

Just as we humans can get along better with another, a wife with a husband, or a child with a playmate, then it really behooves one to try to form alliances wherever we can. In a spirit of cooperation, not of competition, should be group/s work together. It is a union of like purposes -and really there is only one purpose on Earth as I can see it now: to help each individual to be the best that they can be, whether that be spiritual, mental/emotional, or physical.

It is my thinking and understanding that each of us is unique and special. We all have our gifts, talents, skills and passions to present to the world. The world is a better place because of each one of us. Now, getting to the point of allies and how important they are–

Since God is ‘in’ me and to the degree that I recognize this bond, this union, I am setting off particular spiritual vibrations of energy. The more I am able to give every thought, imagination, and intention a vibration of love, then all else falls secondary to that. That energy thought wave is felt; I need not be a physics major or scientist to know that. When a person walks into a room that is filled with go-getters and positiveness, then that feeling is felt and experienced by changes. More on that later.

When I am aware of my thoughts and my abilities to create for the good, adding to that momentum, then I am setting up for myself, more productivity and purer products not only for myself but for the group, my allies. Some of the group members may not be up to the level that others are in positions of good control and power, but it is to this allegiance for the highest good that we must work towards. Focusing all my ‘good’ ‘higher’ thoughts, words and actions on the groups’ efforts and activities, will foster a better working condition for all. It’s like being in step with a band, a good illustration. I like watching the half-time activities of the college or high school bands waltz across the field, in unison. It is a sight to behold. Nature works that way, too. Watch a sunrise and see and hear the plants and animals wake up (some to go to sleep) all in harmony and unity-each group being separate, but working towards the whole of bringing life to a new day and to the many participants. Some will not see or feel the new day. That is alright. Some may call the new day curse words. That’s okay, too. The thing to do is to build a better world by working as allies. Working together by providing solutions to abuses of human rights, abuses to our justice system, abuses in the workplace. There are many solutions that the problems of this day or moment presents. Be open to them; be ever watchful for that ‘one’ that needs our help to make him or her a better abled person because who likes to be at the effect of things or people if they only knew better. It is in the name of help that allies form bonds and cooperate with each other so that help can be given.

Unlimited positive helpful thoughts enhance and build the energy one has. Let all else pass you by. Be busy with what you need to do on your Battle Plan for the day. Stick to your plan and with those good thoughts and actions, allies can work together more easily and in unison. There is infinite good and eternal love that is the source of who each of us really are, the source of all beauty and abundance. Beginning with the idea that you are that, we can create a world that works for us ALL, and not just some of us.

I AM COMMUNICATIVE. I AM COOPERATIVE. I AM WILLING TO WORK FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD WITH MY HIGHEST THOUGHTS, WORDS AND MY ACTIONS SHOW FOR IT.

Scriptures that cooperate with the above statements:

“For it is God who is at work in you.—Philippians 2:13 Christian Bible

“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Ps 46:10 Jewish Old Testament

“In other words, there is the theory of: “What you pay attention to makes that thing important.”

You as human beings can create tomorrow’s reality by what you think today or what you believe in today. If you believed, all of you, hard enough, that there was going to be a monument out here, a hundred feet square and two miles high, to the pioneers of aviation and you all believed there was going to be this and you wanted it there and so on, there’d BE ONE there one day, there’d be one there.

That’s because you believe in it. ..It’s what you VALIDATE !

“If you believe in this human being as a sane human being, he will act sane, not because you coax him to but because you are just validating this. This is his reality, then—the sanity. You’re telling him this is reality—his sanity.

“All right. But supposing you treat him all the time as a neurotic or an aberrated human being. Immediately this person will become more neurotic. I mean, it just works out that way. Even people who are fairly well balanced, if they are around people who are entirely concentrated on nullification, people who are afraid or timid, people who count on their own superiority by making other people less superior, who count on that mechanism to get along in life, are very dangerous because what do they keep validating? They keep validating the shortcomings and the weaknesses of those around them, you see? And by validating those weaknesses and shortcomings they actually bring them into being and make the person weak and make him exhibit more and more shortcomings and so make the person less and less strong and win.”

“It’s what you validate that counts.”

“How would you raise a child using this same theory?”

“For instance Indian children are very obedient, they are very cheerful. They’re quite something to be around. An Indian tribe in the old days used to be in connivance on every child. They were all plotting against this child’s insanity, because every time this child, voluntarily or otherwise, would pick up a stick of wood to put it on the fire, no matter who was there, they’d say, ‘Oh, what a good child.’

“Now, the child would go down to the brook and he was really intending to take this little bag of something down there and throw it away, and somebody would say to him, ‘Oh, you’re going to get some water, what a good child.’ ‘You’re helping your mother, what a good child.’ ‘You’re being obedient. You’re a good child.’ And when they were bad children, they ignored them. They just shut them off.

“Now, it requires pretty steady nerves and a lot of outdoors to do this. The only reason I’m using it is just to demonstrate there what you validate in a child.

“I’ve seen Indians work this, by the way—Blackfeet. It’s the most fascinating thing you ever saw in your life.

“This kid will suddenly look so bewildered. He’s caught off base. What he was actually intending to do was to blow up Bull Moose’s tent! And somebody says, ‘Oh, you’re taking that over to your father to give it to him. What a good child.’”

L. RON HUBBARD, from Research & Discovery Series, Volume 6 , Page 147-149. This can be found ,too, in The Science of Survival Lectures ,lecture “Theta–MEST Theory” Part II. 21 May 1951. [p. 54 of the transcript].


*ally-comes from Middle English allien, from Anglo-French alier, from Latin alligare to bind to, from ad- + ligare to bind Ref: Merriam-webster online dictionary

Granting Life

People are alive to the degree that life has been granted to them and alive to the degree that he has granted life to himself and others.  Or stated another way, grant life to yourself and others and life begets life.

We are here…we are alive this very moment.  Look around and grant that same life that is in you to your possessions, appreciate those things, take care of those things that take care of you.  Grant life to the community you live and work in, saying to yourself, ‘Hey, this is a great place to live and the people here are wonderful!’  The town and the people in it eventually will conform to the life you give it to that degree.  Just think what a difference it would make starting with just idea.

This day grant life to yourself, to your family, to your home, to your possessions, to each other in the community…And the degree you grant that life into people and things is the degree of aliveness it becomes.  Funny how things work out that way…but try it…do it each moment.  As an artist and illustrator, I’ve got to breathe life into what I’m drawing or doing on canvas or it just won’t communicate to others.  If I can’t do that, then to that degree, I have not accomplished my goal as an artist.  You don’t have to have a degree from a major art school or to have studied under someone to create…just imbue LIFE into it…desire it, feel it, put emotions in it…and it’ll communicate and be alive to that degree.   It’s amazing what things can happen from granting life to yourself and others.

So go out there and be your great self-GRANT LIFE!  Help, support, play with, imagine, uplift, act with kindness…It is something which we can ALL do…and it is relatively simple.

What Are They Thinking?

Another great post.

If you are raising a child with a moral code only, you are not raising an ethical being; you are raising an obedient child.

Don’t be shocked when, as a teenager, he rebels to all those orders, yet is not able to come up with survival solutions to his problems.  Following orders has not trained him in reason or judgment, and that’s what ethics is: rightness adjusted by judgment and reason.

School systems no longer teach logic or reason.  Students must choose between a right and a wrong answer, and these are learned by heart.  The students never get to flex their muscles about relative rights. They are not trusted to think, required to evaluate data or draw conclusions based on what they have observed.  The right-and-wrong system in our schools is a system of anger where the student is too scared to form a…

The Student is Not the Problem

Part of the problem does lie in seeing the student as the problem. If we could see all students as possibilities and opportunities and take responsibility for them as our own and help them thrive, instead of drugging and labeling them, we’d see different results. Agree.

Joke Reeder's Educational Articles

Screen Shot 2019-06-25 at 8.49.34 PMThere used to be good teachers and bad teachers, and you could tell them apart by looking at their students.  

When Jamie Escalante taught mathematics in South Central LA, every student passed, every year.  Many passed the advanced placement calculus test as well. He delivered.

Other teachers in the same school, teaching the same students embraced the obstacles the environment presented, and they failed utterly.

See “Stand and Deliver” and watch a good teacher in action.  He brooked no excuses.  They did a good job of capturing his passion.

That was then….

These days we are led to believe that there are good students and bad students and you can tell them apart by their grades, disabilities, and disorders. 

Unhampered, then, by any uncomfortable feelings of culpability, a teacher can now do a bad job, not do the job at all, because the parents, themselves…

finding the god within and without

Are you someone that relies on another to tell you who you are?  Does your mind sometimes tell you that you are less than you are?  Less able, less capable, less beautiful, less powerful? Or are you someone that knows who you are?

God is a hot topic these days especially when times are really bad or really good.  People feel that either God is punishing them for their sins or that they are really blessed for what He’s done.  My viewpoint on this is that ‘We all have the seeds of greatness inside, the ‘god-seed’ and our very reality is built upon agreement.  We are essentially spiritual beings carrying around a body to inhabit as the spirit is invisible.  When life is present in anything or anyone, then the spirit is there-the god-within.

Some people act and do things that are noble in making the world a better place; a place where one’s ideas can be expressed as in the arts, science, and technology.  There is that bit of knowledge that is needed that carries a responsibility to forward and move it to the front; then to control that without harming the other.  The very freedoms of our society are built on intellectuals, and the artists- those that can imagine and bring forth a better world.

The mind of man can be changed that we know.  Yet, can the mind of man be such as to have complete admiration, beauty and the ability to or not to communicate to others regardless of where that might be in space and time?  A resounding yes is my answer!  The ideal man is about the god within displayed without.  It scares some people to think that there is that capacity or ability to be that.  But it is true because it is essentially who we are, spiritual beings.  God, in Its Imagination, has and will continue to form man according to its image.  We cannot help but be conformed as our awareness increases.

The I AM A SPIRIT book lays out the messages that are true for anyone.  For we are all one, yet very individual and unique.   The god within each of us communicates that and is agreed upon by those who know who they are.  The god within you is the same god within me-the only difference being is that we all have our different talents and skills to offer the world.  God within is a mighty statement-one that The Best of Me from a-z! Virtues and Traits for Kids espouse as the world only recognizes who we are by our example.   The children of today should be concerned with who they potentially are and live up to that ideal-an ideal that is built on imagination, sovereignty, independence, self-determinism, self-reliance, and freedom.  The abler we all can be, the fewer burdens put upon the rest of the world.

Some Solutions to finding the god within and without:

  • Study other religious beliefs to help foster peace as only then will there’ll be communication, understanding, and appreciation of the similarities and commonalities we all have.
  • Help further those causes that help each of us to be more cognizant of the god-within and who help us develop those abilities and talents so that we all can be more ethical and responsible beings.

Let us remember it was William Shakespeare who wrote, “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”

So that being said- Be yourself, keep learning and growing and may you never be the same!

Superheroes on Super Bowl Sunday

You see them on TV and dressed up at parties…but just what is a superhero?  To me, a superhero is one that takes 1) life by the horns (is in command of life in a positive way) and 2) elevates his or her friends or groups of friends to even greater heights of goodness, honesty, truthfulness, and ethics besides vastly improving their abilities.

In taking life by the horns, it would actually be a person so endowed with life itself- a god or a goddess she would be.  There have been many superheroes throughout the ages, men like Einstein, Isaac Newton, Leonardo Da Vinci, Aristotle, and even Plato to top the list.  Can you think of some great superheroes that were female?  I bet we both can!  How about Madame Curie, Joan of Arc, or even Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks or even Harriet Tubman?  Certainly, and there is a vast majority of them.  We just never hear about them due to all the negativity that is put forth from the news, tabloids, etc.

And for 2 above-Like what abilities you might ask could this superhero improve?  Like being able to communicate better or perhaps getting along with others better. Perhaps giving the needed help in not solving the person’s problems, but putting the person in the position of helping to solve those problems themselves.  There are so many ways to help others without holding them down and keeping them at that particular station in life.

In all truthfulness, superheroes are not born, they are actually made.  Wouldn’t it be great if we as a culture could raise up a generation of superheroes?  It simply starts as a decision…a decision to be a superhero, growing in knowledge about what that entails and practicing those things, a willingness to help yourself and others and going out and doing it!

Can we raise up a generation of superheroes?
