I do not wish to insult anyone’s beliefs, but do most practicing, religious people ever step back to think about what being a christian is :
Some Denomination’s are so quick to tell you your need for religion in your life, but we all have different tools, beliefs we use to remind us or help us get through the hard times in life. If religion is your thing, great, however pay attention to the messages and the actions that you carry out in the name of your religion, denomination.
I think about Vatican City, I have been there before. All the wealth, jewels, adornments, gold, why? The enormous amount of money it houses, those gaudy gold dripping collections, could be given away for better use to humanity. I feel that there is a lot of corruption in the religious sector, churches are exempt from taxes, they carry an enormous amount of influence in the name of religion.
I will most likely never visit every country on this planet, never see it,or experience its identity, so I would love to hear from people from across the globe. The news is limited and censored, so I rather get it from the source. Thanks to the creation of this magnificent tool, I’m a click away from any country. I wonder what your way of life is like, and has it changed drastically with the economic state of the US ? People across the globe and the ecosystem are going through hard times right now, I am not sure what everyone’s hardship is but I would love to hear from you. I wish you love and peace in these times, and always.
My Internet family, share what you think. I have always wondered what the rest of the world ponders over. Do you take accountability, or is the mess in your immediate life, and across the globe somebody elses? I came to find out that everything we question judge etc…) or everything productive, and good missing is all inside us:
Your validation of love comes within you, for yourself. If we were better human beings, wouldn’t our outlook for the world be to improve it rather than to dismiss it?
these are the main problems we share across the globe. Education is our key component to improve all of our heartaches about the mistreatment of the ecosystem they all have, and share an important place in our planet !
I feel that when people look outside themselves for solutions, that is the majority of the battle right there. People want to place blame on the things they think hold them back, but it is only yourself. If you clear yourself of negative views, negative thoughts you invite , and allow room inside yourself for growth, improvement, endless possibilities. You will make significant contributions, and change to the things around you, (family, community, etc…) or the world. Aren’t we the highest ranking species on the planet?
We are the driving force making the devastating decisions that are occurring around the globe. We can not just sit idling by waiting for our government’s , their legislative branches to screw us and our planet out of quality of life. It starts with us , every country has a system in place, if it is not working then We the Masses need to demand a change. How can we accomplish this if we are not willing to change within our self first? If you stay preoccupied with lower level thinking ( your own ego) worried about what people think of you, how mad a motor vehicle driver made you etc… the list is never ending, and all this is stored inside. The lower level thinking occupies lots of unnecessary space, it creates paralysis within you, not to look at the bigger picture of your life and the life around you.
I think growing up in a military household there were many attributes to it. Travel abroad, opening your mind to the exposure of other cultures, customs, just that the world is a big place( and yet so small). Europe is so much older than the U.S., it is simply amazing to see history still standing.
I hope life has been good and treated you well through the years. I lost contact with some of you along the way, but there are memories that I will have for always! High school is a part of our life experience, our years when we were young and free! I am hoping to check in and see how some of you are doing! I am sure a lot of you are on facebook. It is a great way to link everyone together.
They say that how you introduce the new year sets the tone for your whole year. I do not know if I agree 100% with that, because it is one day out of the remaining 364. We are suppose to live in the now, be present in the moment, in the day, not two days or two weeks down the road. If you keep your mind clear and your heartopen, your days, weeks, months and years will be full of incredible bliss.
I look forward to a whole new adventure for 2010!!! As I reflect back on 2009, for any of the days that were obstacles personally or throughout the globe, I challenge myself and everyone else, where ever you are on the map, to minimize the limits we put on ourselves and the world. To step out of our “auto pilot” ways, and try thinking and doing innovative things, in this journey of life. No matter what our circumstances may be. I share space with every living creature on this planet, you are all my brothers and my sisters from another mother! I wish you all love, health, and prosperity in this year, and every year that follows!
I hope everyone celebrated this day, their best way possible!! We all have different views, beliefs, and traditions for Christmas. For those of us that got lavished with gifts, or not, I say break away from your tradition! Last night I learned from my Sister In-Law, that for the past eight years, she and my brother belong to an organized group of friends, that every Christmas buy gifts for children who are less fortunate, mainly in foster care. We should always be trying to improve the environment and humanity around us.
I must say, having the title and responsibility of an Aunt is a mere glance into the enormous, undertaking role of motherhood. I may change diapers, bathe, and feed my niece and nephews, but they get returned to their parent(s). As a person who is without child, I have a daily routine that only involves me. I may get up in the morning, take a nice hot soaking bath, while watching the news with a soothing cup of hot tea, before I start my day. In a mother’s world, she is woken up to the tune of a little person, maybe several times throughout the night, crying for a bottle in the early morning. So the mom who has had interrupted sleep, starts her day feeding her hungry child, who will have many other needs and unexpected surprises, whenever, whatever they are, through the coarse of a day,every day (24/7) to react or respond to!
I have heard Oprah Winfrey on her views of Mothers worldwide, and I wholeheartedly agree, Being a Mother is the toughest, most important job on the planet.
