What Do You Care?

What do we really care about?
What do you value?
What makes a difference in your life?
When we value, respect, create and appreciate what we value, we are fulfilled.

When we dismiss, deny or are distracted from what we value, we may feel discouraged.
When we believe it is impossible or improbable, we give up or try to stop caring.
When we believe we can’t or we should not care, we may depress ourselves.
When we let others negativity or disapproval interfere, we may pretend not to care.

I care passionately about you and all humanity.
I give everything I Am and Have to Doing what I am called to do.
I may feel discouraged or disappointed, but let it pass recognizing every gift given has value.
I may get distracted and feel bad about a missed opportunity, but I quickly “get back on the horse.”
(For me, even 5 minutes of feeling sorry or guilty or disappointed is way toooooo long.)

I believe I am here for a holy and healing purpose.
I know we each have our own special calling and mission.
I know that life’s upsets are wake up calls.
I see us waking up and encouraging everyone to wake up in laughter and Love.

I recognize the world’s beliefs and stories (history) have clouded my mind.
I know erasing my mind with Love, is key to seeing and responding differently.
I trust the process is free for us to stop, look, listen and give what is Good for All.
I realize we are all teachers for one another, and as we care, we life up humanity with our Love.

I create with loving reminders, with workshops and classes, with counseling and coaching.
I create with books and centers and retreats and relationships.
I create with my thoughts and words and the gifts I give.
I create myself and my world to be a wakeup call for everyone of us.

I prepare with self care, with self discipline, with certainty that comes from within.
I care passionately about You and your loved one and everyone of us.
I dare myself to do what I am here to do everyday, creating beauty and goodness and wholeness.
I share fully and freely all that is given to me to inspire, to ignite, to infuse you with Self Love.

I believe in you and me as we set ourselves free to fully be.
I trust you and me to create what is truly Good and helpful for all.
I encourage myself and you to follow through on our projects and prayers, our calling and cares.
I appreciate and strengthen the very best in everyone I encounter, as I easily forgive our errors.

The Human Touch

’Tis the human touch
in this world that counts,
The touch of your hand and mine,
Which means far more
to the fainting heart
Than shelter and bread and wine.

For shelter is gone
when the night is o’er,
And bread lasts only a day.
But the touch of the hand
And the sound of the voice
Sing on in the soul always.
