“Gifted Another Day!”

A Good SensationHappy Hump Day, Y’all!

Yes siree, “Bob” … and I ain’t talkin’ ’bout no “Bob” in particular … it is referring to the average person today! How’s your “karma” today? Are you feeling “good vibrations”? You do know that it is up to you … once you’ve been gifted another day of life!?

Have you ever thought about the origins of the “human family”? How about our destiny … you know … will we destroy the planet and will “Mother Earth” give us up for “Outer Space”?! Most of us don’t contemplate such “ideas” as we usually have enough on our own “personal plates” to last a life time … or two! Yet, we go forth each day … some of us “in style” and others of us “in the struggle”. I’d like to think of my life as a bit more than “a struggle”, you know. We set goals … we achieve them. Or, we set goals and we watch the onslaught of “life events” challenge them, reshape them, occasionally cause us to disgard and/or disregard them. Other times, things “just happen”. I think of the young lady of the “Ohio Three” who survived that “House of Horrors” who has decided to become a motivational speaker. Do you think she has some stories to tell?!

“We show self-respect in how we choose to spend out time. Do we give tasks the time required for our best efforts? Or do we feel unworthy of quality work? Do we have a right to stop working and just play? Are we worth spending time with – just ourselves, or do we feel meaningful time is only spent with others? Are we worth caring enough about to enjoy bathing, grooming, or getting haircuts? Do we care enough about ourselves to see a dentist or a physician when needed? (Can we afford either?)”

” …. Beyond self-respect and care, we need to put time into our day for nourishing and enriching our spirits …. reading something thoughtful or meaningful, talking to a friend about the events and feelings of our lives, listening to music, fixing a pleasant meal, exercising, and giving unpaid time and energy to worthwhile causes …”

The previous two paragraphs come directly from “TOUCHSTONES”, a book with daily meditations. “What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.” – Hugh Mulligan

I am grateful for the gift of another day, and I will live it creatively and respectfully. (August 14th)

Just a little something to think about …

This Sunday, August 18th at 6pm, the Brahma Kumaris is hosting another “Meditation for World Peace” at ArtPark in Hollywood, FL, which is located at Young Circle there off Hollywood Boulevard. I plan to attend again! If you’re in town, stop on by!

Have a great day!

Peace,

John I. Cook, Director
