Grow Or Die

If you are not growing, then you are dying. This is an undeniable and inescapable Reality of Life.

Growth does not necessarily mean expansion or enlargement. Growth is a fundamental process of Life. To grow is to renew, refresh, and replace that which has outlived its usefulness with that which revitalizes. To grow is to cycle and incorporate experience, knowledge, wisdom, and substance.

If all aspects of your Self are not growing (Physical, Emotional, Mental, Spiritual, and Expressive/Creative) then the lagging aspect is dying.

Fortunately, unless you are already dead, you are not too far gone.

Gratitude And Appreciation

These two words are often used interchangeably, which is unfortunate. To know them in their fullness we must distinguish their proper usage.

Gratitude is the feeling we have for those who bring Beauty to our Life, who give of their Time and their other resources, those things material and impalpable, sharing with us that which we would not otherwise have.

Appreciation is the feeling we have for the gifts we receive and experience during our Lives.

Gratitude is for the giver, appreciation is for the gift. Either way, we should be energetic in our expression of and for both.

Tools

Pens, gavels, money, and guns are tools. In and of themselves they are inanimate and unmoving. Each of these things are presumed by many to be objects of power. They are not. Power is a Living Thing and it is an expression of what it is to be a human being experiencing Life here on the Mother Earth; it comes from within us and can never reside in a mere tool.

How sad it is to not know one’s own power.

Many who do not know or fully appreciate their power will brandish such tools recklessly or with malice aforethought in a misguided attempt to control others or to compensate for the power they recognize, either consciously or unconsciously, to be lacking within themselves. It is far more difficult to be the master of oneself than it is to lord over and dominate another. The pages of human history are stained with the bloody ink of despots and fools who could not master themselves. There is no greater challenge than that of Self-mastery.

Claim your power and use your tools wisely.

Group Think?…

You will be far better served if your positions and views (whether political, social, spiritual or otherwise) are chosen à la carte rather than table d’hôte.  Accepting and adhering to the prevailing consensus for any given school of thought without parsing the components that make up that ideology can find you in the company of untold others who have done the exact same thing.

What Will You Do?…

If you are content with the way things are going for you, if your experience of Life is joyful and fulfilling, then keep doing what it is that you are doing in the way you are doing it.

If, on the other hand, you find yourself swathed in discontent, unhappy and pining for something more, you must first change your attitudes and then change your actions.

Happiness will not just fall on you like a meteor from the heavens.
