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.
