We are the world

Written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie in 1985

” There comes a time when we heed a certain call
  When the world MUST come together as one
   There are people dying
   And it’s time to lend a hand to life
   The greatest gift of all

   We can’t go on pretending day by day
   That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
    We are all a part of God’s great big family
    And the truth, you know,
    LOVE IS ALL WE NEED.

    CHORUS:

    We are the world, we are the children
     We are the ones who make a BRIGHTER DAY
     So let’s start giving
     There’s a choice we are making
      We are saving our own lives
       It’s true we’ll make a better day
        Just you and me
       
        Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares
         And their lives will be stronger and free
         As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
         So we all must lend a helping hand

          REPEAT CHORUS:

           When you are down and out, there seems no hope at all
           But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall
           Let us realize that a change can only come
           When we stand together as one

           REPEAT CHORUS”

Something Albert Einstein said!

When asked:”What is the most important question one can raise concerning the future of the human race?

The great scientist Albert Einstein replied,”IS THE UNIVERSE FRIENDLY?”

I found this in one of my favorite books, “THE GENTLE ART OF BLESSING, Lessons for living your spirituality in everyday life” by Pierre Pradervand

The Power of Love

NO MATTER WHAT

NO MATTER WHERE

IT’S ALWAYS HOME

IF LOVE IS THERE.

unknown

Let’s start seeing the whole world as one family and LOVE one another, NOW.
Send smiles around the world. Choose joy. Choose to love. Choose to be kind.
Choose to see the good in others. We all have our faults and issues. We are all works in progress.
Choose to go out of your way to help someone today. Choose to forgive today.
Everything is a choice moment by moment. You are all free in this moment to choose another path. I am not saying that you all are not good people. How do you treat your loved ones? There is a lot of abuse in families. Why???? How do you treat passing strangers? How do you treat your neighbors?  What you do to others, you do to yourself.
If you are cruel, you are being cruel to yourself. Maybe there is another way. It’s time for all of us to wake up. There is a Revolution going on. That means, NOW it’s time to awaken and be our higher selves the way we are made to be. It’s natural. It’s primitive. There will be a tipping point when it will shift over to smiling sincerely,  when being happy and loving is the norm. Honesty needs to become mainsteam again. We need to be able to trust each other. Vows need to be taken much more seriously. Selfishness needs to give way to selflessness, in order for the world to be more kind.
I know that we can do this. It takes work and thought. But, we must if we want to thrive and have a better world for our children and generations to come. Think about THEM, now…

The Power and the Spirit

This is a poem written by a dear friend of my Mom’s and mine who has passed on. Norman Michael Chase

“The Faces of Love”

What is it that makes our heads to spin;
   that makes another’s wants more important than our own?
What makes the heart beat faster and dreams the face of one we love;
   that make us remember the sunrise song of a bird
   or the laughter of a child?
What makes us wish once more for Father’s warm embrace
   and Mother’s loving touch?
What is it that makes the excitement of baby’s first steps
   and the SMILE on Grandmother’s face;
that makes a tail wag as the master nears
   or the playful joy of new-born kittens;
that makes us turn a plant to the light of sun
   or quench its thirst when leaves have drooped
   or makes us reach out to shoulders that are stooped?
What makes us place a coin in the outstretched hand and look to
   eyes that hunger and want
   or bring a caress to brows wrinkled with age?
What makes our hearts reach out to those we’ve never known….
   whose grief in Littleton and Atlanta became our own;
that makes us cry when we see a life ended
   and makes us beam with joy when we see it begin?
What makes a toccata by Bach and the “Come Fly With Me” by Sinatra
   or the “How do I love thee” by Browning and a sonnet by Shakespeare;
that makes us long the scent of night-blooming jasmine
   …and makes us SMILE at a rose?
What can it be that comes to warm us and quench the thirst of
    our hearts….but the many facets of LOVE…..our gifts from Above.
