The Greatest Accomplishment

Copyright 2020 by R.A. Robbins

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

Be

A Little Blue and Slightly Off Center

For the last few years I have noticed words showing up in my life to give me direction.  Last year it was the word “rest.”  The need for rest kept showing up over and over as I struggled to heed them rather than push through to the point of complete exhaustion.

This year the word that keeps showing up over and over is “be” — as opposed to “do.”  Brought up to believe we change the world by doing I am now learning that we really change the world by being.

So join me this month as we explore this little word, so packed full of meaning —

BE.


By the way, the photo of “A Little Blue” girl on this page is a photo of one of Genie’s handsewn wall hanging fabric art pieces. You can see more of Genie’s work by clicking this link to view her art collection in our art gallery. Many of the items are for sale if you see something you want for your office or home. Visit now. (Proceeds from sales are used to cover the costs of maintaining this spiritual service.)

 

 

 

We are all equally capable of Spiritual Awakening

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“We are all equally capable of spiritual awakening. It may not seem that way, at times. Some of us are so caught up in the drama of our day-to-day existence that we have lost track of who we really are. But eventually, all of us will make the discovery of our true nature.”

– Victor Shamas

for peace of mind…

For peace of mind,

resign as general manager of the Universe.

– Larry Eisenberg

I like this quote.  Yes, it is a little funny, but it is also so true.  We live in a world where everyone knows everything, wants to be change and of course speak their mind online and off.

During this difficult time, I hope you have come to realize that you are not the General Manager of the Universe.  Unless you work in an essential industry right now there may not be anything you can do about the current crises but stay home.  And that is important.  By staying home you are doing your part to stop the spread of the virus.

After a storm did major damage to the neighborhood where we live, Bob and I felt so helpless.  We wanted to help.  We were trained to help.  It took us a while but we finally had to realize the best thing we could do was stay out of the way and take care of ourselves.  Doing that helped the workers be able to clear the roads, restore power and get help to those who needed it.

So if you are working, as usual, bless your heart.  We all do appreciate the medical, retail, delivery and other workers who are working so hard taking care of us during this difficult time.  If you are at home, take care of yourself and your family.  You are doing your part as well.

+Change is always tough

“Change is always tough.

Even for those who see themselves as agents of change,

the process of starting a new thing can cause times of disorientation,

uncertainty

and insecurity.”

Simplicity doesn’t change who you are…

*Overestimating the pleasure of more stuff

People overestimate the pleasure they’ll get from having more stuff.

This does not apply to new rose bushes, crayons, or yarn stashes.
