Where Will We Live?

I sometimes wonder if the wealthy elites intent on destroying the planet, have a plan to escape to another planet or maybe like the movie, Elysium, some kind of space habitat, leaving the rest of us to deal with the consequences of their greed and neglect.

We now have the technology to destroy the planet on which we live, but have not yet developed the ability to escape it.” ~ Stephen Hawking

Running on Empty

There are a lot of leaders leading from a place of lack…using the fact that people follow them on social media as a way to fill up…using their charisma to deceive…using their talents to attract attention.

If you are leading from a place of lack, the only thing you can offer is emptiness.

If you listen obediently to the Voice of God, your God, and heartily obey all His commandments that I command you today, God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of God, your God.” Deuteronomy 28:1-2, MSG

Inhale Obedience, Exhale Lack…
Inhale Surrender, Exhale Lack…
Inhale Abundance, Exhale lack…

Appreciation

It is possible to have an appreciation for what others have without feeling that what we have is somehow inadequate. When we express appreciation and gratitude for what we do have, we attract more of what is promised to us.

What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

Inhale Gratitude, Exhale Attitude…
Inhale Appreciation, Exhale Criticism…
Inhale Thankfulness, Exhale Envy…

Be Grateful

God has not promised me sunshine
That’s not the way it’s going to be
But a little rain
Mixed with God’s sunshine
A little pain
Makes me appreciate the good times
Be grateful
Be grateful” ~ Walter Hawkins

This weekend I found myself focused on the negative…the untimely death of a younger cousin, the result of the election and the racism it exposed. So I spent some time listening to the Hawkins family…Edwin, Walter, Tramaine…which led to a search for the songs I sang as a member of the Afro-American Gospel at Alabama.

Listen to Be Grateful here …you’re welcome!

Listening, I was reminded to focus on the many, many, many things I have to be so grateful for…a healthy family, friends who have done their work, time to be still and reflect, opportunities to live on purpose, a safe place to rest, more than enough to eat, faith that sustains me.

There are a couple of things I want and absolutely nothing I need…for that I am grateful.

Inhale Gratitude, Exhale Negativity…
Inhale Trust, Exhale Doubt…
Inhale Peace, Exhale Chatter…
