If Everyone Took Responsibility for Something or Someone Else Today…

When things get put on automatic, when we allow ourselves to even think that ‘someone else is responsible’, ‘someone else can take care of it’, then we are headed downward and not upward in the grand scope of things.  We’ve assigned ourselves as Effect and not as CAUSE individually and collectively. IN essence, we’ve allowed ourselves to become irresponsible.

Questions: Do you want a better world, do you want a better community, do you want a better family, or a better marriage?  Then you’d better take responsibility for it! What could be worse than having a fight every month in your marriage?  What would be a problem you can think up that would be worse than that? A loss in several months of income perhaps?  or a family divided and not living together…YOU think that part up! and then what part of losing several months of income or a family divided and living separately could you be responsible for?  Don’t like the government?  Then decide that you’ll be responsible for some part of it and quit ‘leaving it up to someone else to do something about it’!  YOU/ME can do something about it…anything if we but just decide to do so but DO IT! Start at the family or local level…and be responsible for that. Take it upon yourself to communicate to others and then decide to listen to others, too.

Who or what can you take care of today?  Take responsibility for someone other than yourself.  Want a better marriage?  Then find something you could be responsible for in that marriage.  Is YOUR freedom and rights on automatic leaving it up to someone else to defend or protect this state or country you live in?  If you are not actively taking part, then TAKE YOURSELF OFF of automatic and do something about it instead of just taking care of Number #1.  And quit complaining about things the way the are…quit your petty gossiping and your petty grievances and get into ACTION. If we could each of us do this just today, it would be a better world almost instantly.

Decide this moment to take responsibility for others than yourself today.  

I AM RESPONSIBLE. 

I CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND I’M IN ACTION NOW.

finding the god within and without

Are you someone that relies on another to tell you who you are?  Does your mind sometimes tell you that you are less than you are?  Less able, less capable, less beautiful, less powerful? Or are you someone that knows who you are?

God is a hot topic these days especially when times are really bad or really good.  People feel that either God is punishing them for their sins or that they are really blessed for what He’s done.  My viewpoint on this is that ‘We all have the seeds of greatness inside, the ‘god-seed’ and our very reality is built upon agreement.  We are essentially spiritual beings carrying around a body to inhabit as the spirit is invisible.  When life is present in anything or anyone, then the spirit is there-the god-within.

Some people act and do things that are noble in making the world a better place; a place where one’s ideas can be expressed as in the arts, science, and technology.  There is that bit of knowledge that is needed that carries a responsibility to forward and move it to the front; then to control that without harming the other.  The very freedoms of our society are built on intellectuals, and the artists- those that can imagine and bring forth a better world.

The mind of man can be changed that we know.  Yet, can the mind of man be such as to have complete admiration, beauty and the ability to or not to communicate to others regardless of where that might be in space and time?  A resounding yes is my answer!  The ideal man is about the god within displayed without.  It scares some people to think that there is that capacity or ability to be that.  But it is true because it is essentially who we are, spiritual beings.  God, in Its Imagination, has and will continue to form man according to its image.  We cannot help but be conformed as our awareness increases.

The I AM A SPIRIT book lays out the messages that are true for anyone.  For we are all one, yet very individual and unique.   The god within each of us communicates that and is agreed upon by those who know who they are.  The god within you is the same god within me-the only difference being is that we all have our different talents and skills to offer the world.  God within is a mighty statement-one that The Best of Me from a-z! Virtues and Traits for Kids espouse as the world only recognizes who we are by our example.   The children of today should be concerned with who they potentially are and live up to that ideal-an ideal that is built on imagination, sovereignty, independence, self-determinism, self-reliance, and freedom.  The abler we all can be, the fewer burdens put upon the rest of the world.

Some Solutions to finding the god within and without:

  • Study other religious beliefs to help foster peace as only then will there’ll be communication, understanding, and appreciation of the similarities and commonalities we all have.
  • Help further those causes that help each of us to be more cognizant of the god-within and who help us develop those abilities and talents so that we all can be more ethical and responsible beings.

Let us remember it was William Shakespeare who wrote, “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”

So that being said- Be yourself, keep learning and growing and may you never be the same!

Tips on Turning 65

I’m soon to be 65 years young this next month.  Never felt more alive, aware or grateful, either.  I believe there are certain things you must do to set yourself up for this wonderful time in life:

  • Never quit doing what you love in life.  It took me a long time to really find out what I liked to do in life.  And that was writing and illustrating books for people of all ages.  I don’t have a large volume of books written, but I’ve enjoyed each project and product thus far done.  Keeps me young.  Of course, learning the internet is done in gradients, too.  🙂  And that’s a whole ‘nuther story!
  • Appreciate the lessons learned in life.  No one is born into this world knowing it all.  I’ve had some hard lessons in life, but in the long run, each of those lessons was done by choice or consent, even if done in ignorance.  Try to join a group that helps you learn about life and livingness because there is a technology to living, so to speak.
  • Take responsibility for what you’ve done-the good and not so good.  I realized that life keeps on going and it gets easier when I take responsibility for my part.  That helps me to be more humble and not so hard on myself in the future.  It also helps me to realize that there’s a lot of good to be done in the world and there’s always another opportunity to improve yourself.
  • Love your family. Get to know each one in your family and love them for who they are. I’m a fraternal twin-a close sister that means the world to me with two younger brothers.  My mother is still alive, I’m thankful, and happily married.  I also have a wonderful husband & family that are very supportive of me. Two grown children and three grandchildren now doing well in life. Communicate with your family often.
  • Be Community minded.  Getting out and helping others whether you do so in person or using the internet can bring rewards.  There’s nothing as rewarding as helping others out.  Treat others as you want to be treated, too.
  • Help our planet out.  Economize, reuse and recycle where you can.  It’s a great feeling to know that you are using only what you need to and giving back to the land that has given so generously to us.
  • Develop a Spiritual life.  Work and study to improve yourself-each day. Cultivate good virtues.  Keep abreast of the technologies used in this day and time to help you develop a better and deeper spiritual connection.

These are some of the things that I have found that brings success in my life. I’m sure there’s more- I hope you have questions or comments, too. Don’t forget to check out my books here.   And thanks for stopping by- come again!

Beauty

IMG_0325

 

Beauty is God-given and Man- given.  We work together in the grand scheme of things.

What I see in the picture above is a grand landscape fashioned by the Hand of God/man.  God created the heavens and the earth.  Man is given responsibility to tend this gift- the blue skies, the majestic trees and abundance of green symbolizing life and the many animals that depend upon it.  Recognizing the life that is in you and where it came from originally is the beginning of knowledge.

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases;

it can never Pass into nothingness.”   ~Keats
