Seed tomorrow with wise reading today!

Elections are upon us.   

Reading can seriously damage your ignorance.

And, in today’s world, reading and research have become more complicated. With a plethora of intentionally distributed lies and purposefully twisted spins on facts, one must diligently and carefully seek out the truth. Challenging work; however, please dig for accurate information, then vote as if our democracy depends on it . . .  because it does.

Life is calling . . .  Today’s the day!

Seed tomorrow with wise grace and elegance today!

Yesterday, we would have celebrated my sweet mother and her twin sister’s 100 years on Earth. Oh, the lessons the two of them left for their 12 children! Mom and Aunt Helen walked in elegance, respect, dignity, honor, compassion, and grace. I remember mom regularly saying There’s no excuse for rudeness.

Too often, when I was young and angry that mom didn’t stand up for herself when mean or disrespectful behaviors were aimed at her, she replied with something like: 

Being strong doesn’t mean fighting back, it means working to understand and remaining your kind self. What’s the benefit in using the other’s behaviors you’re appalled by? Never let another person govern your behavior or define who you are. That’s your work.

Her quiet observations, minimal words, and constant, graceful responses still echo loudly in my head.  Happy, happy heavenly birthday to two exceptional women whose legacies still live profoundly within the behaviors of many who knew them and learned to appreciate their rare grace.

Life is calling . . .  Today’s the day!

Seed tomorrow with wise leadership selection today!

November elections are right around the corner. It’s time to make decisions about leadership and policy. While doing your research, consider ancient notions from Tao and Zen:

Don’t confuse power with leadership.

The wise do not need to have power over others to lead.

Wise leaders show the way by example.

They focus on reducing hatred, anger, and fear.

They understand the wisdom of compassion and the power of love.

Do your research and, in November, vote like our democracy depends on it.  Because it does.

Life is calling . . .  Today’s the day!
