Words to Consider

I got this in an e mail from my friend Hallema.  I thought this was really worth passing along on Living for a Cause’s blog.  I hope you agree.  Mary

As we develop, we embrace communities within society and we network with other beings of our collective consciousness so that Each One of Us, will continue the journey to Reach One of Us and that voyage will bond all of Us! 

When we recognize the challenges as well as the triumphs we face within our diverse cultures, we realize in the end that we speak, we cry, and we endure similar pains as well as passionate joys. We all are people of excellence and great pride. We all represent the birth of our nation’s future and different ingredients needed to encourage one another.  

As a collective force, we are more than members of a mass population, we are partners and believers of an interest aimed to jointly uplift one another inspirationally and professionally!  
We all have been affected by many great and not so great moments in our lifetime. But again, we’re always reminded of those shared elements of our existence which was clearly defined for us in the beginning when we were cut from that umbilical cord. 

We are Beings before we are categorized by groups which mean we share values that naturally unite us and we all are entitled to explore and embrace all things within our Universe. 

If we take time to understand those communal values that connect us, remove the politics and ego from our lives, and focus on the beauty and spirit of our being, we can be unified as we should be. 
Yesterday is gone, today is a new day, and tomorrow is another moment in our life.  Life goes on, and so will we. We’ll meet new people, encounter new challenges and embark upon exciting and productive opportunities. Cherish all that the Universe has in store and live in the many moments that life will bring. 

Remember that higher states of consciousness carry much more power to change reality than do the lower states of consciousness. The higher you reach, the more affect your consciousness has in resolving problems and creating a better life. Seeking joy from within is an activity which places you in tune with the flow of eternal joy which resides there, waiting for you to contact it, feel it, and express it.
May we continue to network collectively and remember the cord that connects to our Greatness within. 

One Love, One Unified Force

It matters to stay involved, to help our neighbor, our friend, an animal in need, to feed the hungry, and strengthen the weak.  It also matters, that you know, you matter to this world and the love and lessons you leave behind matter.


You Matter

  • When you love the work you do and the people you do it with, you matter.
  • When you are so gracious and generous and aware that you think of other people before yourself, you matter.
  • When you leave the world a better place than you found it, you matter.
  • When you continue to raise the bar on what you do and how you do it, you matter.
  • When you teach and forgive and teach more before you rush to judge and demean, you matter.
  • When you touch the people in your life through your actions (and your words), you matter.
  • When kids grow up wanting to be you, you matter.
  • When you see the world as it is, but insist on making it more like it could be, you matter.
  • When you inspire a Nobel prize winner or a slum dweller, you matter.
  • When the room brightens when you walk in, you matter.
  • And when the legacy you leave behind lasts for hours, days or a lifetime, you matter.
