What Can I Do? Greatness. Service. Love. Right Now.

Everyone can be great
Because everyone can serve
You don’t have to have a degree to serve
You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve
You only need a heart full of grace
A soul generated by love.

Words by Martin Luther King Jr. on a faded piece of copy paper hanging blue thumbtacked to the office cubicle wall permeate the day in and day out efforts that unfold as these Angels work within the boundaries of a system pushed to its limits stretching where they can and living in a practice of humanity where everyone is treated with respect. Where the difficulties of circumstance continue to grow but who never stop believing a kind word, a practice of service and an action of love 
can transform someone’s life.

Make today a day where you brighten someone's day.  Be great in your actions and your efforts.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

The Power of Forgiveness in Action.

Thursday, July 07, 2016

First Principles. Do No Harm. Do Unto Others. Leave it Better Than You Found It.

As we achieve a collective gridlock in beliefs, ideologies, passions, fundamentals, and opinions the only choice left is to go into the deeper conversation. There's a Latin phrase that represents a foundational element of the healing arts, medicine, and the sciences, Primum non nocere -- "First, do no harm." Entering any situation with this simple thought sets the stage for compassion and connection.

The end of what separates us and the beginning of a humanistic approach is in our sites because we have no other options. Our goals are the same no matter who we are or what we believe, and the great news is, if our intention is that we "First, do no harm" to ourselves and others it's easier to find common ground. It is a time to take action in our communities. To be kinder, more loving, more forgiving, to go out of your way to connect to the angels of your better nature and clean house, clean up and clean out what needs clearing.

Moving to the next logical associative thought, the words "Do not onto others what you would wish not them do onto you" is more than a statement of purpose, it is an invitation. Each act has a ripple effect of its beginnings. If you do kindness unto others, kindness will flood back to you. It is an equal sum game, cause and effect in perfect balance.  

Imagine the possibilities for positive action when we're living in this simplest statement of our humanity, our connection to each other rather than our differences.

There is a great healing underway. Actually, a healing of epic proportions. The inequities and the trauma and the tyranny perpetrated through history is getting a consciousness raising, largely because there is no more physical room to hide. A great light is being cast on the things that aren't important, that aren't working, so they can be addressed, atoned and freed, bringing everything up and out of the shadows for a Love filled healing so we can experience the Truth. We all have different ways that we experience Truth, because those ways are different doesn't mean it isn't the same Truth.  We arrive at the same place through many different doors. It doesn't matter what door you go through just that you open your heart to truth. That you speak truth to power and you experience the loving intuition of action from the space of truth.

Today is the perfect day to choose to see everything with a lens of loving thought. To do unto others. To experience the grace of each moment. To remember we are all connected.  There is no us or them it is 'we the people, united to form a more perfect union, establish justice in pure domestic tranquility.'  What you seek you find.  Seek out that which is in harmony with your soul's purpose. Seek out that which is right minded and just, seek love, and you just might tip the balance in favor of a world united in peace, healing our earth as the home we cherish. There are more of us that are loving than there are haters. There are more of us acting with kindness of spirit and generosity of action, there are more of us in graceful union with our hearts. It doesn't take the 'mass mob' it takes a critical mass committed to the principles of change and growth and loving action.

Power and Love and Justice. Today is the day to Kick Up the Love Quotient.

Celebrate all the Wonders Expanding Before You.

A world of possibilities is open to you. You are relaxed and at ease, you can recognize new beginnings and opportunities as they present themselves, sometimes even before others can see them. Because you are in tune with your own nature, you understand that existence is providing you with exactly what you need. Experiences are being created for your highest good.

Enjoy the fullness of complete imaginal possibility.  Celebrate all the wonders expanding before you. Fly like an eagle above the fray of your life giving yourself a Google earth view. Honor the teachers who demonstrate the beauty of the butterfly and showcase the possibility of flight.  In each moment lives infinite possibility unhinged of the past opening up the world we are celebrating the power that lives within each of us to rise up.

Enjoy all of it. Enjoy today. Enjoy yourself.

Remember the principles of freedom and inspiration laid forth and rise into faith and openness 
step more deeply into your inner powerfulness beyond measure.
May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May you fly free
Allowing the landscape to illuminate
in brilliant bursts of light
eternal and endless

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

A Reading of the Declaration of Independence.

Thomas Jefferson intended for the Declaration of Independence to be performed, thankfully we have this random collection of artists gathered to read from the text.  It is as inspiring today as it was when the words came together in Philadelphia, Pennsylvannia.

Enjoy this informative spin on the experience with Morgan Freeman - then check out the time capsule collection of celebrities reading the masterwork.

Several artists read from the declaration of independence. 

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom. - Thomas Jefferson

Declaration of Love.

In light of all that is happening and in celebration of the days ahead the single greatest action we can take is that of loving ourselves and sharing that love in the form of a declaration of our planets independence from fear.

Let us declare love, today and every day. Let’s make today our declaration of love, day.

Let us declare love on those whose actions we feel have hurt us or transgressed us in some way, because these are the people who need love the most, who feel alienated, whose cries have gone unanswered in the space of our humanity, who feel disconnected unheard and/or unseen. Let us offer love as a blessing to these folks who need it most, feeling it first in our hearts and then extending it outward without reserve. Love extended is love received because loving source is your birthright.

Let us declare love on our communities, as we are all interconnected. In declaring love in this way our communities flourish in the light of love, for what is seen with love never changes and what is seen with love shifts our perceptions and guides us into right action to enable and support our communities.

Let us declare love on our work for we are here to be in service to each other and our world and work is how we make manifest our loving hearts gifts to our world.

Let us declare love on our ancestors, to those who have come before us, on whose shoulders we stand, for in extending love as far back as we come, we are providing light to our experiences eternally expanding.

Let us declare love on each sunrise, when you wake up, because no matter what happens love will lead the way and as the sunsets we will have confidence the sun will rise again and on and on.

Let us declare love on those we cherish, that we may empower each other to know peace.

Our founding fathers gave us principle of freedom. The first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence shouts out the most basic of all truths.... "that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

These principles permeate every level of our existence.

On the back of our one dollar bill is the great seal of our country...

Two latin sayings adorn the seal, surrounding an all seeing eye.

Two universal statements offering a promise:

novus ordo seclorum = new order of the ages

annuit cœpto = eye of providence is looking at us with favor

Radical equality and foundational freedom. Take advantage of the meaning, the moment and the energy offered up. Today, and every day.

Today and every day is the day to stand up and make our actions count by declaring love living in an open source world with the deepest truth being we are all created equal.

Today and every day is the day to stand up and make our actions count by declaring our loving intent and by being extra loving to ourselves and standing up for our own declaration of freedom, of justice and our inalienable right to be.

May our days ahead be blessed, may love surround and guide us and may we allow love to lead the way!

"Let freedom ring
Let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today is the day of a reckoning
Let the weak be strong
Let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away
Let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day"

"Give her a G."
