A Six Pack, a Hammer and a Church Key, Please.

It is said that it is easier to break an empty bottle of beer than a sealed one.

It is also said that it  is easier to break anything than to fix it, unless that thing is an undesired habit or a relationship.

Is it any consolation to realize that when a thing is made by man,  that something was first destroyed?

Whatever we make of ourselves requires raw materials, desire and a whole lotta Love.

Human Traits and Attributes

Lee_Broom

Why do we describe God with human traits and attributes?

If God is limited to doing what humans do, only better, how is this helpful?

If we describe God in terms that do not apply to mankind, what would they be?

What are the missing attributes which would complete us?

Do you often wish you possessed the ability to Love at will? Or to stop? At will?

Are there moments in your life when you wish that you possessed total knowledge of past and future as well as current events?

Has there ever been a time in your life when you did not feel powerless when confronted with problems?

Are you troubled when you lose your car keys? Your glasses? The name of a friend or perhaps even a beloved family member?

When you ask for help what new trait or attribute that you feel you lack do you suppose will be present when a solution to a given problem becomes apparent

The Children…..continued.

This is a story of  twelve good men; Tough guys.

No stars in their eyes

They’re wise.

They’ve discovered the Prize

Of eternal youth.

 

In each one is a boy of ten.

middle aged men

with a yen

to be free.

They are Children, they are

Invisible children, Accepting the Love and passing it Far. Amen.

Look for the fellow standing on his head. He’s the Alfred Hitchcock of this video production. You’ll see him upside down at the beginning of the show and again at the end.

He just sorta blends in. This is Morris.       http://vimeo.com/53479807

Love is…….

Lee_Broom

Love is the Power that heals.

Love is the Power that overcomes fear.

Love is the Power that forgives.

Love is the Power that is offered with no expectation of anything in return. Love is Completely Unconditional.

Love is present when we cry.

Love is the energy contained in the laugh of a child or the cry of the warrior holding the lifeless body of a fallen comrade.

We humans, like everything else in nature possess a motive for everything we do, even when that motive is an unconscious event. In other words being the self-centered critters that we are, Love as a deliberate act is unnatural. We cannot “do” Love. But we recognize the feeling it leaves in us, usually after that feeling ebbs.

Where does Love come from? 

Love is within arm’s reach.

What is Love?

Love is…………….

That’s all.

Q: Do you know how to have love in your life?

A: Help someone. Ignore the temptation to entertain an expectation of reward.

Do it.

Do it again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

One more thing.

Accept Love when it is offered.

Learn to say “Thank you”.

Learn how to learn.

I’m no guru.

Someone gave me a hug.

Someone told me once, that even though I thought I had lost everything,  I still had something that someone else needed.

Cool, huh?

That happened again today.

Thank you Big Lover. Thank You.

WE DO. GOD IS.

Gambel's Quail

The necessity for knowledge, even total knowledge does not exist for The Ultimate Power, Any amount of knowledge has only one purpose and that is to solve problems and of course Omnipotence has need of nothing. Knowledge is purely a human possession. Omnipotence is the Direct Opposite of Need.

God IS Love. We have Desire.

God IS Love. We  have fear.

God IS Love. We  have knowledge.

God IS Love. We  have kindness.

God IS Love. We  have tolerance.

God IS Love. We  have prayer.

God IS Love. We  have curiosity.

God IS Love. We  have fun.

God IS Love. We  have strength.

God IS Love. We  have passion.

God IS Love. We  have access.

God IS Love. God’s limbs are our limbs.

Desire demands Knowledge. Love is Awareness of all.

Desire wants Life everlasting.

Love IS Life Everlasting.

Desire is for Now.

Love is for Ever.

Now is the essence of Ever.

All actions possessed of The Blend of Desire and Love lead to Success.

Faith is needed only for the hesitant.

Accept the Love and Pass it On.

Leaders are Service Oriented.

If you wish to lead then probably you will not.

If you desire success, you are there.

Both of these qualities were determined during the first two years of your life.

You made other decisions as a child, decisions that were determined not by reason; more likely by Fear.

Perhaps you decided to become tolerant. Or charming.  Or one day you may have heard one of the giants talking with one of the other giants. They were discussing how perfect you were.  “……. no trouble at all.”

“That’s for me” you said to yourself. ” I will always be perfect” .

Perhaps you had nothing to fear as an elf. And having been loved and cared for it was natural for you to pass it on.

And look at you now.

Most of us fall into the first group. When it becomes too painful to be in that group we say “ouch”. And we pass it on. Whoever is standing by, then says “ouch”.

But there is a dependable source of Love. If you believe me on that then accept The Love and pass it on.

If you don’t believe me, say “ouch” and pass that on.

Or…………………….You can pretend:  Think of the words  “I Love you” and pass it on.

Leaders do not set out to be leaders. Those who do so are the caretakers of the Unspoken Word. These are Championship Followers and yes they like to say “I am a Leader”. They not only know all the rules by heart but those that are not written down. Be careful of these people. Their lives are built on the discoveries of others; rarely do they have a new idea to share. Their tools of reinforcement, the weapons that control behaviors, are gossip and interrogation.  You can be this kind of person. It’s easy. Just learn the rules. The first rule is to say “ouch”. The second rule is to pass it on. That is what it takes to be the best follower. The best follower is often called The Leader. That is always a mistake. Sometimes we have to live with that mistake.

But you want to be successful, don’t you?. Now there are no rules for that. If you want to be a success by using rules, write a new book cataloguing a different list of rules. Then sell that Book of Rules. Then say “Thanks for the Love” and pass it on.

Being a Leader is not a decision made by those who want to be Leaders.

Do you want to “be” or to “become”. “To be” requires nothing more than looking in the mirror. If you are a Leader you will like the person you see in the mirror.

To “become” requires knowledge of who you are (“be”) and you have already looked in the mirror. So do the next thing; it will be the right thing. Count on it. You can become a Leader but not until you quit wanting to.

Accept the Love and pass it on.

Accept the Love and pass it on.
