Letting go

Image Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

We are living through a time when we are being called to let go of many things such as:

  • Control
  • Old grudges
  • Anger
  • Greed
  • Selfishness
  • The need to be constantly busy
  • Our ideas of “work , “church” and “school”
  • Destructive ways of interacting with the earth
  • Ideas of race and policing
  • The idea of the perfection of our county

Everything seems to be falling apart.   Yet we seem to be clinging to old ways of doing things tighter than ever, even though they no longer seem to be working.

Sometimes we have to let go of what is no longer working to create something new and better.  I believe this is such a time.

Please join me this month as we explore letting go.  What one thing is your life are you being called to let go?

Just be what you are

“Just be what you are. And I try to be my best self and be what I am

and knowing what I am and be satisfied with that.

And if people don’t know it,

maybe they’ll eventually know it.”

Communicate

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

Communication is one of the greatest tools we possess as individuals and societies.  It can be used to bring us together, teach, heal and create.  But it can also be one of our greatest problems tearing us apart.  Many of the problems we see in the world today stem from communication — miscommunication, inappropriate communication or sometimes even a total lack of communication.

If we are going to heal the world, we have to start talking to each other.  Not just talking at but also listening and communicating at deeper  levels.  The days of only talking about the important stuff with people we know agree with us needa to end.

I had already scheduled this month before the pandemic.  But now communication has taken on a whole new meaning and importance hasn’t it?  Stay with me for our regular Thought for Today as well of a few of my own thoughts about communication in the time of social distancing.

Please join me this month as we look at communication.   Leave your comments below and let’s communicate!

+Acting in spite of fear

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“We need to practice acting in spite of fear,

in spite of doubt,

in spite of worry,

in spite of uncertainty,

in spite of inconvenience,

in spite of discomfort,

and even to practice acting when we’re not in the mood to act.”

 

You can change direction

Copyright 2016 by R. A. Robbins

“You can change direction if you feel like you have missed your way… Decide to do that now! Go back a little more and begin from where you missed it out! If only you are ready to rise again, you can make a right decision in that tight belly of the shark. Jonah did that earlier!”
― Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes
