“I’m through accepting limits

’cause someone says they’re so

Some things I cannot change

But till I try, I’ll never know!

Joseph William Singer

For your consideration……

As population of mankind has grown, so has the need to understand how to “manage” it. Think about it. How many people do you know intimately well? Communities, companies, governments, churches, news media etc. feel they need to gather statistical information to determine how best to manage people. Marketing and statistics are full-blown products of this. There is  all kinds of data on everything you can think of  to help determine how best to “handle” people…..pigeon hole them.

Our message today is that those are tools….good tools to use as “indicators” when dealing with the masses. The problem comes in when WE…the individual…. start to believe and internalize the data. That data is talking about our external ego self.

That data is NOT who we really are. We should never accept it on blind faith and let it determine our direction and make our decisions for us. In this age of truth our authentic self needs to lead our way. It is our truth. It knows who we are, what our passions are and what our life purpose is. We are asked today to not let ourselves….true selves…..be pigeon-holed.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…….

-Meditate/pray…..listen to your authentic self. You will recognize it. It holds no judgement and is loving and comforting.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors…brrrr…..and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Be you…the true you.

What made me smile yesterday……

-Fun, fun students.

-Sun at recess because without it is cold.

-Lots of reading time.

-An early bedtime. I feel like a new girl this morning.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
