God’s Words Speak in Any Language

This Psalm is a staple of the faith, The Lord is my Shepard etc,,,, but even if it weren’t, and even though I don’t understand the language, if it were evening, low lights a candle or two, or three quiet still of the night, even a quiet Sunday afternoon, God’s words can still penetrate the heart, spirit and soul.   If you happen to find yourself on vacation, somewhere where you don’t speak the language, even a Jewish Temple, an Orthodox Church, don’t be afraid to go in, because God will speak to you no matter what the language being used that day.  

Amen

Do You Go Lone Ranger? Oy!

Letting Go Never Easy, But Necessary

When you are coordinating just for your own gig, just you involved, you only have to coordinate with yourself and the heavens and no biggie.  If you have a pretty good idea what you want to coordinate, well you just do it, don’t dilly dally, you just do it.

However, when you are not coordinating just for you own personal gig, but rather for an institution and others are involved, they are not synergizing, not directly working to coordinate directly day to day, not providing info in an immediate timely manner, are like the honeybee here there everywhere, a million projects, not focused, not streamlined, you find yourself very frustrated in trying to get things done on your end.  You have tried talking to them, asked for relevant info etc.. over and over, have tried to get them focused, to closely coordinate things with you, see how crucial that is, but they are in fog land doing a million things and so nothing is done.  That leaves you in limbo potentially and frustrated, potentially your blood pressure rising.  What do you do?  You can’t just push people aside, not right, not if they have seniority and for any number of reasons, not right to that.  On the other hand if you really care about the institution, project etc… you want to get things planned, done etc…, so waiting on them to “get it”, get focused etc… could mean nothing gets done.  You have to figure out if you have the thick skin to stay and deal with butterfly and honeybee personality, how to deal with that if you are going to stay put.  You also have to decide if it may very well be necessary to go lone ranger, simply act of your own accord on things and hope for the best.  They may get upset that they are left out of the loop at any given point, that they were not part of the process, but to be part of the process, you have to be part of the process, up close and personal, in the trenches with the person coordinating and organizing.  You have to be very very very streamlined, focused, working out the PR, Plans, all of it.  It’s like a relationship, you can have feelings, like someone, but unless you express it, get in the trenches to spend time with them, discuss the sensitive stuff, faith, politics, get to know each other, even if you disagree, feelings don’t amount to much, action does.  As one seeks to work towards common goals, others have to be in total sync with you in terms of coordinating directly with you.  If they are not, if they are not providing the info quickly, in a very timely manner, well in advance for you to do what you seek and need to do, then you may have to go lone ranger to some extent and if they complain that they were left out of the loop, well there’s a reason, not because you wanted it to be the case.  If you have a mission, goals to accomplish for the good of the project, the institution, and others are not “getting it”. not directly coordinating in a timely manner etc…, you may have to go to some extent lone ranger.  The way it is when you deal with what I call butterfly and honeybee personalities that are all over the map and are trying to do a million things a the same time, bad idea, very very very bad idea.  If they choose to do that and put others in a position of huge frustration and having to go lone ranger, then they need to suck it up, tough luck.

Amen

Social Butterfly, we’ve heard the terms right and “busy bee”, which on the surface can sound great, but what is the motive behind being a butterfly and a busy bee?

Motivation is often the key to a lot in life.  I have at times, including when I did not want to deal with pain and the reality of fibromyalgia done the busy bee thing, trying to be involved in anything and everything at once.  The result was major fibro crash, so not so smart.  The human tendency and we kind of see it from the get go even in Genesis is to evade, run from, escape, not face up to things, not want to deal with things.   Some go to extremes to not deal with or face their own pain, hurt, memories etc…, drugs, alcohol, not everyone.  Some find the arts as their way to get out the pain etc.., even cooking as a therapeutic way to deal with stress, and pain.  There is no one size fits all for how one deals with pain whether that is prayer, meditation, the arts, cooking, baking all in moderation, in a healthy way, even socializing.  However, when a person totally delves into a frenzy of hoarding almost one friendship after another, one activity after another, one charity after another etc…, afraid to be in silence, alone, alone with one’s feelings, thoughts etc…, well not good.  Everyone has stuff that is not so great in life that happened, decision they wish they had made differently, things they wish they had handled differently, but with prayer, with faith, with changes in current patterns that can be washed away, one can find new life.  That is healthy and wise, quite healthy and wise to do so, recommended actually.  

However if one is scattered all over the place in a constant flurry of activity, has to always be surrounded by people activity and noise because they can’t be alone with themselves, their own thoughts and feelings, memories, not good.  I realize there are going to be some sad, lonely times, moments, even when God unites me with my twinflame soulmate in true union, in sacred union, the nature of life.  I realize I need to have those alone creative times, which I don’t really have now to create music and record freely what I write, to be alone with memories, even painful ones, process them and cry if I need to or want to, ball my eyes out if that is what I want and need, feel my chest rip open and know I will still be okay, maybe even write some awesome stuff out of it.  I may also end up remembering some really great stuff and write some funny, even joyful stuff, who knows.  My activities should be not many, not busy bee ones, but few and ones I do because they are truly dearest to my heart, and time I spend should be spend with very special people.  I spent this weekend having a great time with truly great people from the Joseph Petrosino Lodge, for a cause I believe in supporting veterans.  I realized in terms of my meet up groups I need to get out of most of them because they really don’t interest me they were groups I became part of just for busy bee reasons, not because they really were anything I was going to be really active in.  I also realized I don’t have to prove anything to anyone, just have to appreciate the gifts God gave me and use them wisely and effectively.  Time to really streamline my life, my activity, time to be authentically me and grow up once and for all, but like I said still be me, sweet and spice, all rolled up into one.

Amen! 

Demons Within, Undoing of Each of Us

Often when one thinks of demons, we think of the ones in movies, gargoyles etc…, but they are actually often closer to home, and lurk within us.  What are those demons and how do we purge them, constructively?

Demons come in many forms, they come in the scars that are borne sometimes from a childhood that was chaotic, upside down for any number of reasons, creating a very shaky foundation, so one might have all kinds of insecurities going on and can’t connect to others.  One may want to love, be loved with every fiber of our being by that special someone, have that very intimate raw union that is a fire int he heart, spirt and soul,  but fear it, don’t trust that, ourselves or others truly to go into deep connection mode.  The demons of yesterday, of what was experienced growing up, the what if, could of and should of in ones subconscious can be like demons that attack and block any possibility of connection in any real deep way to anyone. One might be all over the map, even when one has finally found that twinflame soulmate, we might not trust ourselves or them to fully pursue and embrace that, or might wait for the other to make all the moves, and well if they also have unpurged demons and are waiting for you to be the one to make all the moves, whether it is in a business or personal relationship or both, then there will be lots of frustration.  For anything to truly thrive, flourish, including relationships, even us as individuals one has to be willing to take the bull by the horns so to speak and confront whatever ones demons, release them, be purged of them and  be able to flourish on our path, the one is authentically meant to be on, and with that true soulmate twinflame who is on the same path, can be a mutual inspiration and we do the same for them, a real synergy.  Without this purging of inner demons one can not truly live a focused, thriving etc.. life.  There are different ways one can deal with one’s inner demons, but I am partial to prayer and meditation, so I hope this can help you purge your inner demons to move on to a great new chapter, to flourish in all things and be with that true twinflame soulmate in a very healthy happy inspiring union, as well as a path that truly reflects ones vocation, gifts so on and so forth.

Amen!
