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.
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.
