The Place 2019-002

The Place      2019-002

The Place is not – where it is  at or how did it get there.  The Place is not the when we arrive or why we ended up there.  The Place IS – because it is and that is the reason for its existence.

Many will find it to be magnificent. Some will be in awe to its greatness.  ALL will find it to be the epitome of life everlasting.  The Place does not have tickets for admission but does have a cost for entry.

Once in, there are no rules, but there are expectations, duties, and responsibilities and the like. There are no formal attire requirements for everyone will be the same in entirety and very transparent, for there is or will be no form to cover, to hide from or to see.  You will meet people that you know and be known by all that see and hear you.

Stories that you wondered about before, will be told and then known in detail once and for all. Habits that were formed will be lost, replaced with new standards to live by on a regular basis.  Pains and aches that mattered before will not be factors or anything to be concerned with now.

Past anxieties will be forgotten and any before despairs will be history again, never to see the light of day. The human frailties are a thing of the past, gone forever now.

Communication will be easy, what you say will be understood by all, and what others say you will know instantly the meaning. Universal knowledge will be the norm.

Race, creed, nationality, tribes, clans are gone, but not forgotten, just enhanced for understanding by all.

Peace reigns, love rules, togetherness is the common trait.  Any past hatreds, prejudices, differences are now wiped clean, with nothing to be held against the before thoughts.

If Heaven were to have another name it would be this Place.

 

Peace,

Empathy 2019-001

Empathy        2019-001

Not enough of us have enough empathy for others. We can say we do, but in closer inspection, our nature is not in having enough. We live in a world of “ME” at times. What do I get, want, desire, without any feeling about anyone else, other than ourselves?

Our aches, and pains, our job situation, our pleasures and nothing about the other guy prevails, and what he desires or NEEDS. This is NOT unusual, quite common, and defiantly not an exceptional trait life choice of acting.
How do I allow myself, yourself or ourselves to get into this mode of thinking of Self and not of others? You say you have never thought this, or do not do so, ever???? I doubt it. It is a human condition of life to think of ourselves before we do so toward others.

Or first goal upon awakening is to do something for ourselves, and that is normal…. But where do we take some time to have feelings for others and not ourselves? Many organizations try to tug at our heartstrings and play upon our sympathy for those issues they are promoting. They want a donation to go to them to hopefully address the needs that they show us. That’s nice, but not what I am referring to now. For I have listed below those that I feel could use our empathy, sympathy and money.

Migrants, the Sudan starving people, Human trafficked people, sex slaves, homeless, returning vets, coal miners that are unemployed, factory people replaced by robots, prejudiced people of all sorts, and the multitude living in hunger daily. This is just part of a list, actually.

So, what to do? Some of these above issues can be helped with money, but many if not all sometimes requires action of some party with power to do something; such as our leaders. If we do nothing as individuals, we are nothing ourselves. We do not deserve to be recognized as caring people for others.

We cannot get on the band wagon and toot our horns for all people needing empathy. We can get involved in some way in certain areas that we may have a strong presence, AND DO SOMETHING!
Just a thought for the beginning of 2019.
