I Must

There is a situation in my family that I must change my attitude (spirit) about.  If I choose the path of self-indulgence (self-rightness) I could create a chasm between me and someone I care very deeply for.  If I choose to let God change my heart there can be peace.

Why did God make us of dust and why do I think I have the right to judge another’s actions?  Dust is dust.  It makes us all equals.  God could have made some out of precious metals or more costly material but He made us all out of dust.  Knowing this I still put myself above others.  I cling to my self-rightness.  What a fool.  I live in unrest instead of peace.  I live in judgment instead of love.  I create dissension instead of harmony.

The irony is  I absolutely know the results (fruits) of each choice.  I also know how to have my heart changed and yet for a little while longer I want to stay in my self-rightness.

Why do I stay in this place of aloneness and discord?  I know the answer.  To leave requires me to humble myself, become obedient, and allow the other person (who is in my opinion so wrong) to be what they are.

I will pray for the willingness to be a vessel of love for God’s sake so that I am restored to peace.

There’s wonderful help in the oils.  Transformation, White Angelica to protect from outside influences, and sweet Harmony.

 



Great Chuckles

All kids are gifted; some just open their packages earlier than others.

Men are like roses, watch out for all of the pricks.

The two most common elements in the world are hydrogen and stupidity.

Adults are just kids with money.

Never take life seriously.  No one gets out alive anyways.

Share your joy and you will have lived your life well.

Live Life with Vigor

Whatever you are be a good one.  – Abraham Lincoln

Wherever you go, go with all your heart. – Confucius

If today you find yourself working at something to ‘help make ends meet’ and you make it your goal to give it your best effort miracles will happen.  The magic comes because you are living in your integrity and not with expectation of reward from an outside source.

This blog is a prime example.  I had no idea I would continue these gems.  I do it because a friend told me they look forward to them and are grateful they have them.  I am not in competition with anyone but my own integrity.

How?

In order to be someone, you must first be yourself. ‘CUTE SAYING’

In a world that has so much noise and distraction it is easy to put a collage together of ourselves.    We become our ‘activities’.  We are human beings that believe we are human doings.  It is only as we take quiet time daily that our creator, God can show us who we are.

There are so many oils that help us stay in a quiet contemplative mode.  Sacred Frankincense, Believe, and Common Sense are three good ones to start with.



Love Bliss Pain Growth

Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never knew.

If someone you love hurts you cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

These three quotes sum up an experience I recently had while going down memory lane.  It is my belief that when you truly love someone there is no forgetting them.

A relationship is a living ever changing ‘thing’ and if you want it to endure ‘forever’ you will have to work at it forever.  This takes courage and a willingness to accept the outcome you are given.  You then have to choose how you are going to embrace that outcome and how you are going to build on it.

I use the oils Valor and Harmony to help build my relationships.



Get Ready to Be Amazed

Americans consume about 10 billion donuts each year.   [Don’t let Mrs. O know that.]

A tiny fire extinguisher came with Xerox’s first successful copier because it would tend to overheat and burst into flames.

It took humans thirteen years to learn how to slice bread.

Hippos get sunburned very easily, that’s why they spend so much time in the water.

[I on the other hand spend so much time in the water because it is fun.]  As you create a special day for you, you also create a special day for them.

Words Matter

In the pioneer days when a person moved the chances of ever seeing those they left behind again were almost non-existent.  There was very little hope of being able to get news of their old lives.

Imagine leaving everything you know and are comfortable with to create a new life.  A life with only unknowns.  A life of uncertainty.  A life of unlimited possibilities.  A life of great adventures.

Read those two paragraphs again please and notice the change in your body as you read it.  Life is what it is.  Let us consciously make it brighter and more beautiful by using words that breathe life into the air.

Clarity is an oil that helps us with awareness.



A True Friend

True friends are those who lift you  up when your heart’s wings forget how to fly.  Anonymous

Be a true friend today while exploring the world of infinite possibility. Remember that a kind word, being patient (while you wait over 30 minutes for your lunch) because you see the waitress is busy, busy, busy is being a true friend in the moment.

Accept-If you care about someone accept what makes them who they are.  If you can’t do that you can’t be a true friend.

Sometimes things happen and the tenor of your friendship will change.  That’s OK.  If you no longer want to be a close physical friend you can still be a praying friend.

Be a True Friend and miracles will happen in your life.

 

The oil of Harmony will help keep you flowing in the river of friendship.

 



Wow

Maturity is the ability to do a job whether or not you are supervised, to carry money without spending it and to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.  Ann Landers

Do we ever hear the word mature used to describe young adults 18-30?  It seems we use the words  smart, a go-getter, accomplished, sophisticated.  Could it be that that in our current society there are few who by this definition would be considered mature?  Time for some self-examination.
