Be Who You Really Are

Art Prints

It’s much easier to not know things sometimes.

Things change and friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody.

I wanted to laugh. Or maybe get mad. Or maybe shrug at how strange everybody was, especially me.

I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and then make the choice to share it with other people.

You can’t just sit there and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love.

And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn’t do or what they didn’t know. You just can’t. You have to do things.

I’m going to do what I want to do. I’m going to be who I really am. And I’m going to figure out what that is.

Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there.

And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

To Forgive, But Not Forgetting

Art Prints

Written by Gary Wonning

Many times people tell us we should forgive someone regardless of what transgression they have committed. It is the Godly thing to do.

Regardless of how much someone has damaged our reputation, livelihood, or good will we need to forgive them and go on with life.

But what does this mean? Should we just go on as if nothing has happened, turning the other cheek and accepting their behavior regardless of how it may harm someone else or our selves?

How many times do we turn the other cheek?

In each and every one of our lives, we all have someone who has done a great deal of harm to our individual lives. How do we deal with this?

These souls come into our lives so we may learn lessons and better understand not only our selves, but others as well. When do we say enough is enough, thereby releasing ourselves from them so we might both go on with life?

Many people will never change, they will always be who they are. That is their decision, they will continue to suffer the consequences of their actions as long as their behavior doesn’t change.

Sometimes people do change, they see the error of their ways and begin to lead a new and better life.

Regardless if they change or not, there comes a time when we need to forgive them and move on. That doesn’t mean we forget. There is a difference. Forgiving  means we realize they are human and make mistakes, we can love and accept the person for who he or she is, but we don’t have to condone their actions and spend time with them.

They can go their way and we can go ours. No harm, no foul.

You fool me once, it’s your fault, you fool me twice, it’s my fault.

Forgiving means to release and go on, it doesn’t mean we should spend more time with them if we choose not to. That is our choice.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors.

 

Relationships

 

Thought I would share!


You
and I are in a relationship, which I value and want to keep. Yet each
of us is a separate person with unique needs and the right to meet those
needs.

 

 

When
you are having problems meeting your needs I will listen with genuine
acceptance so as to facilitate your finding your own solutions instead
of depending on mine. I also will respect your right to choose your own
beliefs and develop your own values, different though they may be from
mine.

 

However,
when your behavior interferes with what I must do to get my own needs
met, I will tell you openly and honestly how your behavior affects me,
trusting that you respect my needs and feelings enough to try to change
the behavior that is unacceptable to me. Also, whenever some behavior of
mine is unacceptable to you, I hope you will tell me openly and
honestly so I can change my behavior.

 

At
those times when one of us cannot change to meet the other’s needs, let
us acknowledge that we have a conflict and commit ourselves to resolve
each such conflict without either of us resorting to the use of power to
win at the expense of the other’s losing. I respect your needs, but I
also must respect my own. So let us always strive to search for a
solution that will be acceptable to both of us. Your needs will be met,
and so will mine – neither will lose, both will win.

 

In
this way, you can continue to develop as a person through satisfying
your needs, and so can I. Thus, ours can be a healthy relationship in
which both of us can strive to become what we are capable of being. And
we can continue to relate to each other with mutual respect, love and
peace.

Love for Others

Love for others

As we travel through life ,  change is inevitable. As we approach certain milestones in life it is only natural  to have our thoughts and values evolve into something new .

Marriage, having children , the death of a parent or loved one , as well attaining the age of 30 , middle age, or reaching what some regard as retirement age, these milestones all normally bring on new realizations concerning the meaning of life and our relationship with others.

Not only do we change, but the people around us change as well , not only because of their new realizations, but as a result of our new attitudes and how they adapt to them.

Through all of this , how do we continue to love them as we did before?

We can only accept them as they are, and allow them to be themselves. We don’t have the ability or right to make them into something they aren’t. They can only learn these life lessons for themselves, no one can do it for them. As one travels through life, we drop old patterns , habits, and wants.  We become someone else, not only do the cells in our body completely  replenish every seven years, our whole persona  undergoes a transformation.

If they can’t, or we can’t relate to their/our  new life pattern, or if the purpose for us being together vanishes, they too will vanish from our lives. Oftentimes they will develop what we would consider destructive patterns, this is an indication to us it is time to move on.

 One has to love himself enough to not be brought down by what we consider self-destructive people, if we don’t , we will keep attracting that sort of personality until we are brought down. They are simply on a different life path than we are, all paths are valid, and one path isn’t better or worse than another, just different. All paths have the same destination so we will meet up again, when our spiritual paths again cross and are compatible.

 The best thing to do is understand that they are on their own journey ,it isn’t either good or bad, it is only different than ours, give them our love and understanding and let them go on their way.

The lessons for this relationship have been learned and it is time to move on to bigger and different adventures . As this  is understood, many positive events begin to occur. Starting on a subconsciousness level, our life situation changes, souls who we are more compatible with begin entering our life, creating a more positive environment in which we can learn,love, and prosper.

Thus by loving others unconditionally, letting them evolve at their own pace, our own lives become richer, fuller, and more prosperous.

I would welcome any thoughts or comments you would have.
