Life Happens! The Blog will return August 12th, 2015. Until then Peace Out!
We all know the four Seasons, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. A Season is a period of time when an activity or a phenomenon takes place. Spring rejuvenates life, Summer is hot and life is vigorous, Fall is cool and life comes of age, and Winter is cold and life goes into hibernation. We too may have our own personal Seasons. Mine for example is Football Season, where from September thru February I am watching the games. Your own personal Season could be anything that occurs for a period of time. It could be a sport, a hobby, an activity, or a series of events. Your own personal Season is something you enjoy for that period of time. For like all Seasons you have a spring, a summer, a fall, and a winter.
WHICH PATH DO YOU DO?
Do you love or do you hate
Do you talk or do you turn a cold shoulder
Do you forgive or do you seek revenge
Do you trust or do you fear
Do you seek peace or do you go to war
Do you serve others or do others serve you
Do you accept others as who they are or do you judge others
Do you tear walls down or do you build walls
Do you listen to other views or do you only hear your own
Do you see others or do you only see yourself
Which Path Do You Do?
One path will change the world, the other will leave things as they are now!

There is something about Water that attracts everything to it. Above is an image of a creek in Yosemite National Park. Plants grow near water, you can find amimals near the water, and people live near the water. We even pay more to live on the water. Water attracts and why it attracts is water is life giving. Water has many qualities that attracts us: it is malleable, it is soft, it is yielding, it is hard, it is a force, but what attracts us the most is it is Life Giving. If you want to attract others you must become Life Giving. Be like Water: WATER ATTRACTS!
On a recent walk in a Florida Nature Preserve, I saw an Alligator in the distance and it began to swim right straight at me. Luckly, I was on a boardwalk and out of harms way. So often we see the news or read the paper and realize that Danger is Lurking all around us. More and more we see stories of hate, anger, and greed which is randomized towards innocence people just going about their eveyday lives. It can happen anywhere or at any time. It is sad that the world is fill with such hateful, angry, greedy people, but it is what it is. Like the life in the nature preserve, we must be ever alert to the predators of the world, but act in love, compassion, and forgiveness to dispel the hate, the anger, and the greed we find living around us. Strive for the good in all of us but remember DANGER LURKING!
