Today’s Generation

Many senior citizens are living in part on a pension which most of today’s generation will never have. I was fortunate enough to work for companies in which advancement was possible, that offered benefits packages, full-time, permanent employment, all kinds of fun perks, the whole whiz-bang.

05.27.17manonbenchI never knew how good I had it. Why? Because today’s generation has none of that. They survive by their wits. And you wonder why so many are still living at home? It’s called communal living. Banding together for survival in a world designed by people who don’t care.

We nimble humans are now coming out of our burrows to survey the damage. Not only are our youth the victims of these changes. So are the sick and the aged.

It’s now our job, as the ones who’ll survive the impact of economic woes, to rebuild the world.

To rebuild it for our children (and grandchildren) in ways that they may not know about. They won’t know about benefits plans, pensions, one-job families, and the caring for the worker that we used to know. Few of them can afford to go to a chiropractor or, in some cases, even a dentist.

We may have to supply a piece of the puzzle as the last ones alive with memory of the social-safety net we had in the 50’s – 70’s.

I’m supplying my piece by showing young, middle-aged, and senior citizens how to earn more money from home, and have the safety net they need … in a life-changing way. The time is NOW!

The best part is that it’s free for the asking. More information HERE

Old Baggage

It seems it’s pretty easy these days to become mired in the negativity that seems to be enveloping our planet.

I’ve heard from several sources that it’s simply the cycle of time when we and our planet are evolving … meaning that we’re breaking away from old paradigms in order to bring in the new. Is there anything “simple” about it this process? Personally, I don’t think so. 05.16.17baggageYou see, we’ve all got a lot of baggage … old issues we haven’t wanted to look at and heal, old programming from our parents who meant well but handed down the programming they received from their parents, etc. The list could go on and on and some days it sure does.

Maybe it’s time to look at that old baggage for what it really is … old baggage. Ask it what it’s trying to teach us. Once we know what it is, then maybe we can drop it and get on the train feeling a little lighter. I know that I can’t do this alone so I call on God to help me shine a light on the dark places.

I really want to leave my bags at the station. How about you?

In Response

Recently I saw a video on Facebook berating people in Mississippi who, the author claimed to be stupid because they voted for President Trump. The video pinpointed people who live in poverty. There are a lot of people living in poverty in this country. In fact, all over the world. It doesn’t make them stupid. 01.06.17difference

It’s my belief that people who berate others are very insecure in who they are. It would seem that they have to make others feel bad so that they can feel better. There is no common sense or sense of decency in that.

It’s time for people to wake up. If we’re not moving forward as a species, we’re moving backwards. Life is not static.

Have a blessed and beautiful day!

 

 

Look for Signs

A few years ago, I started looking for signs. But not your basic street signs. I’m talking about signs that the Universe provides when you ask for them.

Try this experiment:

Ask for something small to start with, like seeing a red flower, a butterfly, or a certain color of car, etc., as you go about your daily life. Put a time limit on it, like 48 hours or even further out, but don’t make it too far in the distance or you might forget you asked and when it shows up, you won’t recognize it. Remember, we have to have “eyes to see.” Is it coincidental that my blog is named Eyes to See? You decide.

I have lots of instances where the Universe has provided. One day I asked to see a yellow butterfly, so I simply asked and went about my business. The next day I had to go to the supermarket and was walking down the cookie aisle when there it was!

Printed right on the packag04.18.17butterflye of Oreo cookies was a huge yellow butterfly!!!

What’s the lesson here? Be specific in your request. Maybe I should have asked to see a real live butterfly??? But hey, the Universe answered my call, didn’t it? The key here is to ask and then let go of “how” it’s going to show up. Just look for the signs!

(And who created the Universe? The One who sees all, knows all and loves all. He is also the One who said, “Ask and ye shall receive.)”

Post-Thanksgiving

Now that I’m out of my food coma from Thanksgiving, I just want to say how grateful I am to my family, friends and fellow bloggers for their continued support of me and my journey.

Life is a dance and it doesn’t matter whether you tap, waltz, hip-hop, swing, or any other kind – we’re all in this together, so just dance!

I hope all the folks here in America had a joyous, peaceful and loving Thanksgiving. Namaste’

Misc

I’ve taken some of my images and played today. Included in this collage is my granddaughter sipping on some Hawaiian ice in Honolulu, a flower from my garden in memory of those killed in the 9-11 attacks, an old Chevy truck on Alcatraz in San Franciso, our dog Foxy, who went to the Rainbow Bridge in 2013, and Daisy sniffing my tulip arrangement. 

Say a prayer today for the loved ones of the 9-11 victims, whose lives were inflicted with unfathomable pain. Hug every member of your family and remind them how much you love them. 

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
