Sagging Script Syndrome

You coined the title this morning in a message to one of your flock. We would like to build on that awareness as self-worth destruction is not in divine alignment.

May all who read these words be aware that it is easy to lose appreciation for your values in a society that is so frenetic at sharing the value of worthless things.  We invite you to treasure the people in your life and share the words that describe your love for them.

In your speaking of love to them, notice the blooming of the beautiful flowers that they are and then notice how they share your love for them with many others.  In this situation, you have primed the well of love and all will get to drink from the fruit of your thoughtfulness and love.

Teamwork

Working with others is a key part of living a good life.  When we set our priorities aside long enough to listen, it is amazing how much we can learn about ourselves and the opportunities we knew nothing about. We need not have it all to be connected with all.

Loss

A loss that is perceived may need to be put in perspective. Many times losses are just changes that need to be accepted in order that we might understand the logic of the situation.

 

The loss of a loved one can hurt a lot but many times it is a blessing for many because all was right for the change to happen in the way that it occurred.  An elderly loved one who resided in a care facility so that their many issues could be addressed is a great example of a loss that can be a blessing.

 

The crossing over or graduation of the loved one can be viewed as a blessing from a Loving God who calls his children home when it is the time that is divine. The loving family feels the loss but they also see the wisdom of the plan.

 

The graduation of the beloved frees them from the struggle to survive. The family is also freed from having to watch the futile struggle and the pain of seeing it and being helpless to stop the inevitable and continual deterioration.

 

Alas, and fortunately the wisdom of the divine plan is seen and acceptance is allowed to be embraced so that peace can be found.

Life Changes

You will go through segments of your life like you go through chapters of a book. Being aware of your situation can allow you to handle these changes with a minimum of upset. Be kind to yourself and check in with how you feel and how you want to react.

 

Objective interpretation of what is going on will help keep things within perspective and this will allow the growth that will serve you best. Strength during the changes can come from interpretation of all the aspects of the experience.

 

Every change will require support at all levels of your awareness. The physical situation may be fairly obvious but you also need to deal with emotional, mental and spiritual intensities as they unfold.

 

It is important that you consider the need for all the support like they were legs of a table. Your stability will require a Physical Support Leg, and an Emotional Support Leg, a Mental Support Leg and a Spiritual Support Leg.

 

You will need the four support legs for every dynamic of your changing situation. Fear not for change is within the natural order of your evolution as a person in this life and there is no need to fear the steps of the process.

 

You can plateau and regain composure to insure that the change is within your capacity to accept and integrate all that presents in a timely manner.

Demanding People

Sometimes, it may be perceived as sophisticated to be an independent thinker and require that people respond to your demands so that you do not have to take anything from anybody. Looks can be deceiving and compliance with demands does not always mean that the demander is respected.

 

Difficult people can be managed best in many situations by just giving them what they are entitled to anyway and allowing them to move on out of your presence. Adopting a resistance to being insulted can defend you from the further nastiness that you would encounter if you actually objected to their tone.

 

When you refuse to sink to the negative vibration of nasty people, you maintain the spiritual upper hand and allow the interaction to terminate without your feathers having been ruffled by the one who tried so hard to do so. In such outcomes, the sophistication to be proud of is yours.

People That Look Different

People that look the most different from you are likely to be the ones that will be most receptive to your pleasantness. It is not unusual for folks to feel awkward around people that are very different from them.

 

Many have been told about the cruelty that exists in the world and have been cautioned about strangers. The more different you are makes you more of a stranger and therefore more likely that someone you meet will feel awkward when they first meet you.

 

If you are pleasant and outgoing in greeting them, you break the ice of their feelings of unspoken awkwardness. You make it easy for them to assess the situation based on their interaction with you. You take their focus off of fear of the unknown and allow them to feel welcomed by you and then accepting of you.

 

You see now that there is great opportunity to create positive situations by merely acting as if they will be positive, staying positive and allowing the benefits of positivity to flow back to you.

Observation

If you would like to see a better world for all inhabitants, observe what is there for you to see. Many co-workers or business owners will display things that are of personal and community interest.

 

If you notice things that are on display and inviting of comment, you have an opportunity to connect with people on a one to one basis. Connecting with people allows you to improve the quality of your interactions with them and sometimes many others that you could benefit from knowing.

 

Your interest in others can help to put many things in perspective so that you do not feel alone in a cruel world and you feel the uplift that a supporting community can offer. When times get bad for you, community can make all the difference in the quality of your life.

The Power of Courtesy

When an interchange between individuals starts, the tone of the conversation has a lot to do with the predictability of the outcome. If the first person to speak is courteous, the positivity of the discussion is much more likely to result in an outcome that is acceptable to both.

 

Many meetings are to deal with situations that somehow need to be fixed. If you expect that the other party will upset you, the likelihood that they will is increased.  If you accept that they will cooperate, the likelihood they will is increased.  You can influence outcomes by expecting pleasant people and positive outcomes. It is well worth the effort as sometimes unforeseen benefits can also happen as well as friendships that may last many years.

Embracing the Parents of School Children

The roles of parents and teachers can sometimes be at odds unnecessarily. Neither of the roles is easy and both will benefit from respect for the other. Respect can lead to teamwork which can make the teaching experience simpler for all concerned.

 

Unfortunately, there seems to be a theme floating that both parents and teachers are lacking in effectiveness and receive criticism for not holding up their end of the responsibility for education.  This kind of passing the baton of responsibility is not helpful as responsible adults have a tendency to do the best they can in a given set of circumstances.

 

Great strides can be made if parents and teachers accept that they have a real partner in each other and offer communication that is targeted to needs and goals that can be achieved when they work together.

Urban Changes

The dynamic rules of the heavily communicated populations of the world are trending in rapid shifts. Nobody seems to know the rules and what the trend is until is becomes was. What happened may be uttered more frequently all the time and policy is unworkable when the goal is already history and the future is again unknown.

 

Things are moving so fast that a benefit may be the dysfunction of government in that it cannot govern because the rules change faster than the government can act. The vulnerability is that planning and thorough analysis may be impossible.

Prison Crafts

TV production could be something that a prisoner could develop into a business that could help to support a prison. The elements of a program would have to include a work area that would be leased to the prisoner on a per hour basis. The space would also be available to be leased to competitor TV producers.

 

The per hour basis would be divided into two shares. Share 1 would be related to the actual cost of providing the space and heat and light etc. and an accommodating fee for putting it all together and a Share 2 100% profit kicker when the project starts to earn real money.  After that a negotiated arrangement would be needed to reward the institution and motivate the imprisoned one.

 

The Initial messages from the TV producer could be:

  1. Reasons to avoid a life of crime,
  2. Prison realities and how to make prisons that are different and more effective at reducing violence, recreating lives and eliminating costs.
  3. Development of programs that could be transplanted to struggling communities that have the right motivation to embrace graduates of Penal Institutions of Learning.
  4. Finding ways to embrace residents like they have never been seen before.
  5. Creating a legal and economic engine to uplift the lives of residents and create real possibilities pre-discharge.
  6. Motivate prisoners to create within the structure new ideas that can set the rigidity of yesteryear on its ear.

A Pool of Potential

As you go along in life, there will be many things that come in to your awareness that may seem to disturb you.  These things are not to make your life unpleasant but merely to get your attention because the situations can benefit from your attention and those impacted will be blessed.

 

You are here for many reasons and the ones that seem least important to you may be measured differently by others. You are invited to the table of those who can make significant contributions and you are invited to make your own gift.

What If?

Dreaming may seem like a faraway possibility but in reality it can be the ideal vehicle to bridge the world of the unconscious to the conscious experience. Even when you are fully alert and oriented, allow yourself to play with daydreaming so that you can explore the possibilities for your life.

 

If you really would like to tap in to your genius, allow yourself to play with all possibilities that are available to you.  There is much more in your awareness than you think.

 

Extracting possibilities is done when you can play with ideas and mull things over in your head as you ask for a new perspective of all that can be. Allow limited thinking to fade from your view and embrace all possibilities that flow from creative thinking.

 

Continue to play – What If until you release all the potential that exists within a field of study.

Perceived Weakness

Your perceived weakness is strength potential not yet manifested.  You are much more and run much deeper than you could ever imagine. What you focus on increases in your life so when you focus on weakness, you get more of it.

 

Taking control of your life focuses on your strength and increases that and then you can do so much more for yourself and others.  Fear not for your ability to be more is infinite and the only thing that can slow you down is fear that grows like weeds in the minds of so many. Be free to be all that you have the potential to be and that will be enough for all to see so they can be more also.

 

Know that if you see that fear in others, you can help them by offering encouragement.  A few words from you can go a long way to help others see the potential that resides within them.

Celebrity Behavior

The pressures on celebrities are enormous. There is plenty of accommodation for the stars now for all they need to say is the same as the rest of you, I need help.

 

Go ahead and claim great power simply by declaring that you are a highly sensitive individual which gives you the tenderness to feel feelings before most other people. This sensitivity seems like weakness but the reality is that it is strength.

 

Try to lead your life in enough awareness for others as to make the trip worth the inconvenience that you feel. While you may look like you have it all together, in reality you need to take charge of your process or lose the battle.

 

You have the need to network with other sensitive beings so that you can learn what you are here to learn and do what you are here to do because whatever you see in others is not the total of their ability to share but it is merely a link invite that exists between you both. Others may seem to connect with issues the same way as you but it all can be different for both of you as you may have their key and they yours.

 

Focus please on the positives and help many to be on the path to their success and service. Your interest in relief outside yourself is actually a calling to learn about yourself because within you there is genius that can be shared.

Government Productivity

Governments seem to be doing poorly at utilizing moneys designated to help alleviate citizen suffering. Money spent with marginal benefit desensitizes consumers in their level of trust and compliance.

 

Who can justify the wasting of money on having the unemployed do nothing as infrastructure projects in need of accomplishment stand unfunded. Surely government leaders can create some benefit from the funds spent. Surely the good citizens would rally behind a common sense productivity seeker.

Are Capitalists Eating Their Seed Corn?

Capitalists are thriving but they may well be their own biggest threat. The cycles are changing very fast.

 

Business moves fast to monetize and Governments move slow to regulate.  Like the driver in a sports car, sometimes capitalists need to slow down for their safety and the safety of all others on the road.

 

For those of you who study these things, perhaps you could do some analysis on the wisdom of a farmer eating the seed corn or in this case, the capitalists starving  the customers they would have had in the future. Perhaps, balance correcting mechanisms are outdated.

 

The computerized compartmentalized information world that most of you live in provides some awareness of the world as it relates to others. There is a feeling component that may be lacking or out of balance that creates a lack of sensitivity to the perils of others. One big peril is the absence of government leadership.

 

Try to take a balanced look and see if the markets of the future are being ruined by the greed of now. Customers need to have purchasing power but that is shrinking in the nations of the world and that can result in cash flow constriction and decreased velocity which means that spending will slow and the same amount of outgo can create less spinoff benefits.

 

The sad part is the diming of the motivation of the youngest as the messages of hope are overcome by shouts of despair. Generations are being stifled by almost all the negativity that springs forth from the isolation of fear.

Democratic oriented governments are not finding it easy to say no to the citizens and unwise spending is frequent.  Government is like all consumers and must thrive or merely exist depending upon the wisdom of their spending.

 

Government and capitalists are very much on opposing sides of most issues.  Perhaps, the capitalists and the government of many nations can see that Capitalism is threatened by a dwindling customer base which is being caused by aggressive capitalism and a lack of leadership in many governments and businesses.
