Seed tomorrow with wise bravery and kindness today!

I’ve been intrigued while reading about the life of Amelia Earhart. A true pioneer of aviation, she was and remains an inspiration, for her bravery and determination, her modern outlook on life, and her shining personality. Being a spectator of life was never an option for her:

There’s more to life than being a passenger.

Walter J. Boyne, the former director of the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, wrote, Amelia Earhart came perhaps before her time… the smiling, confident, capable, yet compassionate human being, is one of which we can all be proud.

Let me leave you with Ms. Earhart’s words:

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. 

Today’s a good day to throw out some roots!

Seed tomorrow with wise being today!

Who hasn’t inquired within about their true essence, searched for their mission and meaning, or yearned to discover their reason for being? Although the essential journey to understand and accept oneself may take a lifetime, Mahershala Ali, the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar offers us this notion:

I found my place when I stopped looking for it.  

Perhaps an indispensable part of our discovery is in the doing. Increasing attention while changing diapers, doing the laundry, washing the dishes, gardening, laboring at doing your best work . . . being engaged in the fullness of life.

Seed tomorrow with wise growing today!

Life isn’t always easy, nor pleasant or lovely. Growth is accompanied by obstacles, challenges, annoyances, and often confusion.

When you’re in a dark place, you sometimes think you’ve been buried. Perhaps you’ve been planted.  Bloom.

As the solitude of winter departs and we welcome the season of birth, we too can blossom into a better version of ourselves with intention, focus, and action. Bring it on, Spring!

Seed tomorrow with wise peacemaking today!

The increase of conflict, hate, and war is overwhelming to more than a few of us. In the middle of feeling powerless, impotent, and helpless I attempt to remember the small, yet powerful part each of us plays in any hope of a cosmic shift.

It’s not like we don’t have others ways to live together on Earth, because we do. How can we expect world peace when we consistently battle with family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and for some, strangers, turning others into enemies?

Collective shifts aren’t impossible; they’re the stuff that history is made of.  ~ Marianne Williamson

A civilization heals itself much like an individual does. First, we need to be honest about that which dwells in our hearts. When feeling powerless in changing the world, start by changing ourselves.

I continue to remind myself that it doesn’t take the majority of a system to change for it to slant in another direction. So, we need to ask: What can be done today to be a part of the tipping point?

Seed tomorrow with wise transformation today!

In the midst of discontent and dysfunction, showing up as the intentional destruction of communities, people, culture, and honor in the Ukraine, Easter contemplation and prayer call me to, once again, drown myself spiritual writings, including in the Course of Miracles. To understand the text with depth, Marianne Williamson offers some translations:

 . . . we can’t save the world from its insanity when we’re holding onto it ourselves.

The world is a reflection of who we have been. The world of the future will reflect who we choose to become. We ourselves, each of us, must become the change, and that is the resurrection.

We must be willing to be reborn into another, higher version of ourselves, in order to pull off the miracle of planetary transformation.

Look around and you might agree with me . . . we are in desperate need of a planetary miracle.

Jesus wasn’t putting on some macabre show for the world to witness; he was changing the molecular structure of the universe. He was opening up possibilities for change not only for himself but for all the world. Even those of us who do not relate to his story as Christians, can relate to the metaphysical power of the resurrection and to its transformative effect upon our lives. Any one person breaking the hold of darkness paves the way for everyone to break the hold of darkness.

Seed tomorrow with wise use of yourself today!

This being Easter week, many are coming to the end of their Lent resolutions and preparing for personal rebirth. I wish I knew who wrote this, so I could give credit. It gives me fodder for reflection and holds me accountable for progression:

Use your voice for kindness, your ears for compassion, your hands for charity, your mind for truth, and your heart for love.

Happy Easter to those who hold the holy day sacred; blessed continual personal transformation to all.

Seed tomorrow with wise change today!

Like many of you, I experience a plethora of emotions as I watch Ukrainian President Zelensky and citizens, just like you and me, fighting for the democracy they’ve worked so hard to build after decades of corruption and abuse, and to keep and protect the land itself that they love.

Too often, way too often, I feel despair, with no optimism in their attempted victory. Then, I think of my relatives in the country who are experiencing the devastation first hand and breathe in Margaret Mead’s words to grab onto at least a shred of hope:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.  

There is no promise of triumph nor assurance of resolution; however, with enough support and assistance, I pray for victory against autocracy, a return to freedom for people desiring a better life, and the eventual success of a sustainable democracy for people fighting so hard to design it.

Seed tomorrow with wise love today!

During this solemn period in the Christian liturgical calendar called Lent, many contemplate the lessons of Christ’s 40 days of fasting in the desert and being tempted by Satan before beginning His public ministry.

As I “give up” a few things that do not serve Earth or contribute to an improved life, I’ll also contemplate thoughts that I can “add” to my daily being, applying principles taught by The Master Teacher: 

You will never look into the eyes of someone God does not love.

Oh, the immense implications of that statement.

Seed tomorrow with wise meaning and giving today!

Pablo Picasso wrote:

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.

With great wonder, I’ve always envied those who knew their gifts early in life. The rest of us are required to journey through the discovery process.  For some, that’s easier than for others. However, once embraced, we have the opportunity to live out the rest of our lives with more giving and gratitude and less confusion and annoyance.

Blessings upon discovering and living your gifts!

Seed tomorrow with wise energy use today!

Is it possible to understand all that Albert Einstein left us to ponder? Each time I read his work I’m more befuddled by his thoughts and their implications for humans. Although I have researched energy for quite some time, I’m still in wonder as I read his description:

Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the energy frequency of the energy you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.

Really? If true, I still have a lot of work to do . . . you?

So, to all who make fun of those who pray and/or meditate for peace on earth – Einstein’s work is at your local library.
