I CAME TO THIS WORLD TO LEARN
Please play the video...it is a very sweet song.
Lately I have been thinking a lot about my life. I have lived a rather interesting life and somehow I have been able to walk through life with blessings pouring around me.
Most of my life has been about trying to fix myself. I have studied many books of wisdom, attended workshops from rebirthing to manifesting your heart's desires and done more spiritual retreats than I can count. I grew up in a Southern Baptist Church where everything was about black and white..good or bad...heaven or hell. I learned to LOVE GOD as well as FEAR GOD!
Since those years, I have struggled to find a place where I fit in with any organized group...I have a very hard time with hypocrites and people who live their lives in judgment of others. As I have grown spiritually and emotionally, I am always shocked when I find myself having to take a hard look at myself because I thought I should have been fixed by now. The first time I attended EST, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erhard_Seminars_Training, I was sure I would be fixed after those 2 week-ends of personal growth.
So here I sit here tonight...pondering what words to use in a speech for the American Cancer Society RELAY FOR LIFE this weekend and thinking about how Twitter has touched my life.
My message to people always is WE ARE NEVER GIVEN MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE!
BE GRATEFUL FOR ALL YOU HAVE and FORGIVE THOSE WHO CAUSE YOU PAIN AND THOSE WHO YOU MAY HAVE CAUSED PAIN!
Pay attention as you walk on your path ... sometimes there are twists and turns, valleys and mountain tops, oceans and rivers and the moon and the stars as well as flowers blooming all around you.
Reach to lend a hand when someone is hurting and remind them that LOVE IS THE STRONGEST FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE! FEEL THE SUN and say thank you!
PEACE TO YOU
LOVE TO YOU
BLESSINGS TO YOU
