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].

What is proper exchange?

I’ve been thinking about what to write next…usually I have no idea but when the Spirit strikes and the spark is lit, I just go with it.  Like right now.  Today I’ve had on my mind, EXCHANGE.  What is proper exchange?  IS there such a thing, if so, why?  When do you know that you’ve done all you could to give back to others that have given to you or is this exchange limitless?

These are really tough questions in today’s society.  With all the charities, non-profits, give-away programs, volunteerism, etc how does one really know why, when, and how much to exchange? So, I’ll be writing a little bit about exchange and your input would be greatly appreciated.  Don’t be bashful…this is just communication! lol

In my viewpoint, when one gives of themselves either of their talent/skill, money, or time to help you accomplish something or to be a better person, don’t you think that the ‘right’ thing to do would be to re-pay that person?  Somehow, someway, some time?

There’s that Pay It Forward gesture that I can bring up as an example.  If everyone really paid it forward, then this would be a different world entirely.  But somewhere along the line, the gesture stops and for different reasons.  Busy with life, forgetfulness, kids, chores, work, lack of morals, etc might be some of the answers.  I’ve noticed with myself lately that I try to look for things to do for other people NOT expecting for the gesture to be returned.  Usually I find I am pleasantly surprised as when I need that whatever us returned to me; it is right there to be had.  It’s just MAGIC how that works!  BUT…AND…

The bible states that ‘God loves a cheerful giver’ in 2 Corinthians 9:6-7.  It is also a natural and spiritual law that when you outflow more than you inflow, you reap abundantly and besides that, it’s holier to outflow, too.  If you are a tither and give a certain percent of your salary or money that you make to your church or favorite group, then do you do so cheerfully and with enthusiasm?  Paul states in Corinthians, “Not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”  Give because you love to give and seeing the results of your giving brings great joy!

Make sure that what or who you give your talent, time or skill to is worthy and will be responsible with what you give.  That just builds RESPECT.  To give to others, say like those on welfare, without expecting any form of exchange, then some kind of criminal is being formed here. It eats at their spirit…their conscience.  And when it happens so much, that conscience is hardened.  Those folks believe they are ENTITLED to a hand-out now even if there is no form of exchange given.  Welfare is suppose to be temporary and for those really needing an extra push when they can’t do it for themselves.  But there should be some exchange involved  in some kind of contract, if only in verbal form.  What about all those free e-books or downloads you get?  Do you ever think about giving an honest review to help that author or illustrator out?  I’m sure it would be greatly appreciated!  And it doesn’t take much time to do either.

Exchange builds trust, earns respect and is a gesture of love.  It is a gift that can be unexpected (like Pay it Forward) or can be something  expected, too.  It really depends upon the circumstances.  To give freely without expectation of return is to live with a “no strings attached’ attitude and can set yourself up for trouble depending upon the person or group you are helping.  See RESPONSIBILITY above.   But it’s nice knowing that with giving comes receiving…sometime, somewhere.

Why put off doing for others, being in right exchange, when you can do so right now?  Is there someone that’s helped you get out of a tight spot at some point in your life?  Is there a group that’s helped you overcome a weakness or helped a family member or friends?  Is there someone you could thank and help by giving something of yourself?  So before time runs out…why not get in some proper exchange?

I Feel like Blogging…Sometimes

In my opinion, blogging is all about sharing a part of yourself.  If someone can learn something or be helped by your blogging, then it is well worth it to blog.   So, I blog…sometimes. 🙂

I don’t have time to read all the many blogs I’m subscribed to or have voluntarily offered to follow, but I try.  I find that I learn something about the other out there in the world, too.

Communication is so essential in our lives, for it the woof and warp of life itself!  It IS life!  Life survives and thrives by and with and in communication with the other.  There wouldn’t be so many divisions in every area of life if we actually sat down and got in communication, now would there?

And that, that is in communication, is in community….  Oh, how I love the word community.  From that we get communion*.

Have a wonderful rest of the day!  And thanks for allowing me to commune with you.

If you feel that you cannot communicate as you wish to in life, then by all means check out the helpful, free course here.  You’ll be happy you did! 🙂
