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.

3 things on that little word called TRUST

HOW TO TRUST YOURSELF AND OTHERS

  • Keep YOUR goals and promises starting with yourself and it’ll be easier for others to trust you.
  • Elevate yourself to the same level as others; don’t look down upon another.  Be able to LOOK them in the eye whether standing, sitting or lying down.  This puts you on the same playing field.
  • When you have obviously made a mistake, a co-mission or an omission in a decision or in judgment of another, be willing to make amends, honestly.    Somehow, someway- there are ways to do something about it.

If you need help with any of the 3 points above… let me know.  I can help.

I can also recommend some free courses that will point you in the right direction here.

Thanks and have a great day!

Are YOU set on automatic?

Ever do things that you wonder if you did them or not?  You don’t remember doing things because you set those things on automatic.  You “forget” quite well so as to not remember them plus it puts you a frame of mind that you are really not “present”.  And you aren’t, are you?

How many things in our environment do we set up to be on automatic instead of engaging those things in present time?  Can machines do the work of active engagement or involvement?  Perhaps some things are okay like setting the coffee pot to perk at 6AM to have your coffee ready when you get up.  Or maybe it’s notokay.  I am just tossing this idea out there.  How about the more we do for ourselves, the more self-determined we are if done in present time?  Knowing what you are doing when you are doing it is being present.

We can still “do” for ourselves, but if it isn’t actively engaged, then we are set on automatic.  Any thoughts from YOU?

Have a great day….and DO check out the link just for fun!

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?
