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.
Some people, including myself, have been in the category of victim at some point of our lives. Why? Well, for many reasons as we all can surmise. I will not to go into the many and varied reasons here in this brief, but what I do want to go into is addressing the following question:
Does living life constitute just ‘watching’ it or being the effect of it or does living life mean that you actually get in there and do something pro-active, productive or causative with your life? I hold the belief that times continue to change and so much so lately in regard to surviving and thriving, that one must grab life by the horns or it will eventually eat you up. This means personally and collectively. I believe that our Supreme Being gave each one of us the means and the ability to survive. Maybe the means and the abilities are different, but what if you could actually know the technology of how to do something and then practice it until you got really good at it so as to not be the effect or victim of it but the cause of good things happening in your life and in others lives as well?
Do you believe that you are accountable and responsible for everything that happens to you in life? Are you a victim of life or a person that learns the basics of life and applies them?
How well off financially can you or I be? What does it mean to be wealthy and upon what does wealth depend? How about being happy and successful in relationships, creating that beautiful marriage, having strong and healthy children mentally, physically and spiritually, or holding down a job, communicating effectively and so forth? How does one go about life to learn and apply all of this much needed knowledge?
I leave that question up to you to answer for yourself, but here’s some help if you are curious.
