To all the Kenny’s out there…

Kenny is just a guy in his 30’s.  He has a fiancé and also a daughter that is about 6 years old that’s been diagnosed with ADHD.  She loves for her daddy to read to her at night and usually likes a different book each night, too.

Today Kenny stopped by our booth at our Review Party and just simply went through each of the children’s books, making comments like, NO WAY! He said our books were perceptive, too.

Such a joy Kenny was!  He was so into books…and likes the HOW TO informational books the best for himself.  Says he has them on his internet device so that when he has 30-40 min. downtime, he can enjoy reading and learning something.  WHAT A JOY to have met Kenny today.

Kenny is like a breath of fresh air…knows the value of reading and learning….and loves the glossaries at the back of our books.

B-U-tiful You

Today there was another high school shooting.  This time it touches Santa Fe ISD in Texas.  Another sad day where there are loss of lives.  Mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, teachers and police force etc are wondering what caused this shooter to let loose his frustrations and deadly actions on innocent ones.  And the media is having a hay day, sad to say.  My thoughts and prayers for all are included with yours.

What those in control don’t want you to know is that this is a planned attempt to destroy families, schools and community.  This is perpetrated by the likes of Soros, Big Pharma and the psych drugs that are ‘given’ to these students by the “health care” industry amongst a combination of things.  Those that are getting paid big bucks by those using ‘bad control’ won’t let you in on this.  They are the deceived.  Our society is so conditioned by now to accept what others say is true and what’s good for them.  May I suggest you looking out and around a bit instead of at your phone?  What are YOU observing?

Why not concentrate on how parents, students and teachers, and community members can really effectively help.  (You are probably wondering how B-U-tiful relates to this article. It surely does, just follow along.)

If we all took some preventive measures to make sure that each of us feels beautiful, which we all are, instead of someone not worthy to take up our time, maybe things would change.  If we all just drop our devices for a part of the day and talk with each other, look at each other and really communicate, then we’d have something.  Learn the basic skills of communication and how to live life, if you need to.  There’s help out there, really.

How about offering a kind word or two for starters? Put your devices down when eating meals with those you commune with.  Start by increasing the time with those you care about.  If we did that, then I think that we’d be on to something.  Take time and show someone you care.  Start with yourself, Be YOU, your B-U-tiful Self.

We are Instruments

We are instruments in the grand symphony of life. That’s why I enjoy watching and listening to orchestras play.  I am usually singing or tapping my hands or feet along or swinging my arms to the rhythm of the music.  My favorite is the playing of classical music, of course, and sung by well known tenor, Andrea Bochelli is a delight to hear.

To give you a little bit of background, take a look here about instrumentation in orchestras:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instrumentation_(music)

There’s many different types of instruments and families or groups of instruments, like the string section, or the brass or woodwind section. They each have a part or piece to play in the grand scheme of things. Just like you and me. There is life (which is the musical composition) and how to be in harmony with others in your family and with the other groups (people, plants, animals, earth, other planets, universes etc) within the orchestra. All must get along and play their music well in order for the music to be pleasing to the audiences ears. All must sound a clear note and in proper timing so that the tempo is lock-step and in unison.

I think we are instruments in the grand symphony of life.  Some people belong to a orchestra group that is reaching puberty, like in middle school, unable to discipline their selves to get up early in the morning to attend music practice at school. Perhaps there’s a few that have moved on to more sophisticated orchestra groups due to their motivation in setting and carrying out of goals. In other words, they can put in their own ethics and achieve their lifelong dreams of playing in the Philharmonic Orchestra.

We are instruments in the grand symphony of life. We each need the other. We depend upon the Conductor to lead us and Guide us. Without the conductor, there is no harmony or understanding of the music being played. The Conductor knows each of his instruments. He knows them by name. He has a personal relationship with each one. It’s kind of like religion, too. There’s many kinds and all need to work together to benefit mankind. There should be a respecting of each other’s religion just as there is a proper respect given for each section playing in the orchestra. Without the other, we have no beautiful music to share.

When we each can conduct ourselves and play the music that we truly are, then I believe we have become, each of us, Conductors. We are instruments in the grand symphony of life and music is the means.pexels-photo-58865.jpeg

It’s NOT about ME

Truly, it’s NOT about ME, BUT RATHER, it’s about who or what is IN me…THUS making me who I am.

What good propelling force is in you or me is what counts.

And how is another able to know this force?

By their fruits you shall know them, is the answer.

Are the fruits producing an effect that is helpful or harmful for the most concerned?

As this force is very personal and personable for each of us, nevertheless, IT (being Spirit) IS either us or not to one degree or another. The physical vehicle called the body we carry around with us is not who we ARE, but is simply a vessel in which to allow that force of good to act.

So, by my fruits you shall know me.

What do I DO and how do I APPLY the word or the active loving force within me?

By knowing first Who I Am, and then What I Am on earth to DO (that good creative force working in and through me FOR THE GREATER GOOD) and finally, HAVING the fullness thereof (meaning having the desires of your heart met).

So, it’s REALLY not all about ME!  Do you ‘see’ that now?
