Believe In The Process …

Happy Friday, All!  Hit me with a TGIF, if you’ll be so kind!  Boom!!

It’s a very special weekend for me … and my daughter … and my grandson!  We are meeting up in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl … so that my grandson Caleb Isaac and I can spend some time together … in Costa Rica!  So, join me in a TGIF, please!  “Dale!”  “Gracias!”

Life has a way of teaching each of us things we really need to learn … if you want to be a good person or even a better person.  I mean, we all think that we are “unique” in our own way … which is cool.  Everybody is different and if we each try our best to “be the best that we can be”, things usually turn out alright.  If not, there is a lesson to be learned.  It is a process … this thing called life!  I’ve encountered many different types of people in my life and each person is not only unique but is also playing a “role” in this drama of life.  I can’t wrap my head around any “satanic cult-like organization” because I believe in the “power of love”.  As I observe our World today, we can see an awful lot of destruction.  I hope that humanity can LEARN that this planet is our “home”.  I mean, would you drop bombs on ANY part of your own home?!?  Most people I’ve met in my life seem to have some degree of self-worth.  In other words, they are not intentionally sabotaging their own lives …  Now, they may not have all of the “t’s crossed” and “i’s dotted” but there is usually something inside of them that they are proud of …  like compassion or cooperation, art even.  We have to try to bring “the best” out in each other while protecting our own “personal space”.  Yes, there are “invaders” out there who unfortunately have not learned to respect each other’s talents and skills.  You may remember that I had referred to the concept of “4 ages” and we are in the last … the age of corruption.  People actually think that corruption is cool … it’s not.  In fact, it is very destructive as anyone interested in “world affairs” can see.  So, try not to nurture the concept of corruption, nor include it in “our” lives.  I am no better than anyone.  But after living more than fifty years on this planet, I have seen the deleterious effects of corruption on ANYTHING.  Yet people ranging from personal associates to a few world so-called leaders seek to implement the use of corruption in their affairs.

So, I believed that my daughter and I could pull this off for her little Sun, “Caleb Isaac” and my new grandSun!  I am excited to have the privilege of spending time with him sharing our lives and learning a few things as he seems to have an interest in Spanish.  I prepared some flip charts with the days of the week, and numbers, and I “plan” to implement the use and conjugation of a few basic verbs in Spanish, depending on his level of interest.  I have had people tell me that they want to learn English and they even go as far as to get my attention.  The “classes” seldom take place but the interest is there.  Perhaps it is not the right time in their personal lives to spend time and energy learning a second language … or whatever!  I don’t take offense nor feel disrespected if their lives or lifestyles don’t permit them the opportunity.  Some people actually don’t have the skills to learn another language, perhaps, or another discipline like engineering, science, mathematics, etcetera.

Right now, I am going to close this message as this part of my journey unfolds.  Here I am in Ft. Lauderdale, my second home in the States, in a hotel looking out at the pool and jacuzzi, which I will enter before checking out, hanging out with the same buddy who picked me up at the airport when I flew in Wednesday.  Joel Valencia, aka “Colombia”, is at an important meeting this morning where he is helping a friend.  Then he will come back and we’ll hang out a bit before he will transport me to an AirBnB that my daughter has arranged for me and Caleb to stay until we fly out to Costa Rica early Monday morning.  We have been planning and talking early in the morning, later in the day, and sometimes late into the night for the past three months.  She and Caleb flew into Orlando from Connecticutt yesterday and she and her partner are planning to come to Ft. Lauderdale, meet up with me at the AirBnB and deliver the “precious cargo” to me!!

Wish us luck in continuing our individual processes together and nurturing the life of a new human being.  I am so proud but more grateful!

Peace,

John I. Cook, Director
