Whisper_275

We spend so much time thinking about how different we are from each other

Her country is so ________.

His race is so ___________.

Her religion is so ________.

What would happen if we focused on…

We are all _____________.

We all share ___________.

We all came from _______.

Today, give this a shot…

When you get ready to speak of how someone is so different from you…

Instead…

Think of what you have in common with them…

Pick one thing and articulate that.

See if that changes anything in you.

Common bonds abound…

It’s simply up to us to see them.

Gosh…come to think of it, you and I have a tremendous amount in common!

I’m feeling soooooo bonded to you right now…

Whisper _257

When you are in a place of gratitude here’s what disappears:

Worry.

Stress.

Envy.

Judgment.

Hate.

Strife.

Cares.

Sounds like a place I want to live…

More than just one day a year.

Give thanks and be truly grateful each and every day…

For every day we spend here should be full of Thanks-Giving.

And…

I’m so very THANKFUL for YOU!

Whisper_274

When you were little I bet your parents said what mine did:

“If you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all.”

Goodness, they were smart cookies.

And…

What happened to heeding that advice?

Is it time to bring this back into our lives?

I know it is for me.

Silence is always so very beautiful.

Let’s remember to never interrupt it…

Unless we have a beautiful reason to do so.

Time for me to be quiet now…

Whisper_273

Bite your tongue!

Only when that snarky little ego wants to talk.

When your heart and soul want to speak up…

Always let them.

Tell people you love them!

Tell people you are grateful for them!

Tell people they matter!

And…

Tell people when they hurt you or others.

Tell people exactly how you feel…

At all times.

Guess what?

You will feel better.

And so will they.

And when that ego of yours wants to…

Judge.

Condemn.

Gossip.

Give it a looooooong time out.

Yes. You sure can do that.

Wait…why is that massive crowd gathering?…

Oh…It’s the world waiting to hear your true voice.

Better warm up those beautiful pipes of yours…

Whisper_272

Play along with me here for a moment…

Make a list of the 5 most important people in your life.

Good.

Now, write down the last time you told them how grateful you were to have them in your life.

Hmmm…

Been a while for some?

Thought so…me too.

Now, send all of them a note, text, or call them…

TODAY!

This will make them feel great!

And YOU?

Even better!

That beautiful boomerang always comes back…

Whisper_271

Why?

Because…

It heals…both parties.

It releases serotonin. No drugs needed.

It just plain feels good!

Next time I see you, guess what?

You’re getting a BIG one!

Oh, I almost forgot…

This works magically for BOTH sexes.

Yep, hugs go deeper than our soul wrappers.

Ahhh…

Whisper_269

It’s so amazing how we look outside ourselves for most things…

Happiness…

Success…

Peace.

Yet…

All of them reside within us.

That means that…

WE control our own happiness.

WE define what success is for us.

WE decide when to feel peaceful.

Makes you wonder…

Why didn’t we awaken to this sooner?

That darn ego…

What a kidder.

Whisper_268

I saw you…

You checked your birth certificate to see if you really were.

No… you don’t have to change your name…

Or do anything.

You see…

You were created as a GRACEFUL being.

You come from the Source of GRACE.

Your life is filled with GRACE.

Truly…

It’s a done deal…

All you have to do is…

SMILE…

LOVE…

And…

Be full of JOY.

GRACE…JOY…

How many cool names do you have?!

You are just too funny…

Whisper_267

Did you scoff at this?

Why?

It is sooooo true!

Your voice matters…

What you say has meaning for many…

Your message is vital to all.

Now…don’t feel any pressure…

Just know that you and your voice matter.

Why?

Because you came to earth with a purpose…

And…NOW is the time to claim it!

Warm up those vocal chords and let ‘er rip…

I’m all ears…and so is the rest of the world.

Whisper_266

Think of all the things we currently embrace that divide us…

  • Borders.
  • Politics.
  • Religion.
  • Race.
  • Gender.
  • Sexual orientation.
  • Money.

Wow! That’s a BIG list…

All manufactured by man.

Now…think of what binds us together…

  • God.

Bam!

I’ll take quality over quantity any day of the week…

Whisper_265

This could really change the way you view people as you walk down the street, eh?

I came to this realization a number of years ago through an on going experience I had.

I had the privilege to volunteer in the pediatric dialysis unit of an inner city hospital.

The kids I came to know had very acute kidney failure.

They were hooked up to dialysis machines 3-7 times a week for 4 hours at a time.

These machines would clean their blood to keep their little bodies from poisoning themselves to death.

There was a lot of blood, vomit…and sheer terror at times.

And…

They looked very different than most people.

Their frail bodies were incredibly bloated and disfigured from all the drugs they were on.

If you saw them on the street you would be taken aback.

The stories these children shared were nothing short of heart wrenching.

All were gravely ill.

All of them were waiting on transplants.

One young man was dropped off at the hospital by his mom a few years earlier…never to return.

Many died.

What I came to know was that all of them were so much more enlightened than me.

They were wise.

They were optimistic.

They lived every day to its fullest.

In eleven years of spending time with them each Wednesday I never heard one complaint.

Not one.

They were waaaay more evolved than any people I had ever been around.

They were truly highly enlightened souls who chose their journey with indescribable courage.

Think about that for a moment…

They CHOSE their journey.

Wow!

All I can say is that one day I hope to achieve that level of enlightenment.

Now…

Every time I see a person who society sees as ill, disabled, or different in any way…

I say a prayer of thanks and gratitude for the amazing grace they demonstrate.

They simply humble and inspire me.

So vastly different from how I used to view them.

How ‘bout you?

Whisper_264

I know this sounds like a real “out there” concept.

Suspend disbelief for a moment…

What if?…

YOU chose to be here.

YOU decided which challenges you needed to face and overcome.

YOU felt incredibly blessed to be able to have this journey.

Kinda changes things, huh?

So given all this…

Wouldn’t you also choose to be joyful?

Especially since all of this was your idea?

Boy, you can really write a great script!

Whisper_263

Do you ever think about where we come from?

If you do…

Are the answers that come up for you from your upbringing?

Your family?

Your place of worship?

A book or recording?

Have you really thought about this lately?

Got 5 minutes today?

Sure you do!

Take these 5 minutes and…

Close your eyes…

Ask to connect with where you came from – Source, God, or whatever feels right for you.

And…

Just wait.

And…

It’s kind of like shampooing your hair…

You know – lather, rinse, repeat.

Do this for 5 minutes each day.

Will you get an answer?

Yes.

And…

It will probably come in ways you have yet to imagine.

That’s how cool this whole design is…

We ask.

We receive.

In the ways we need it the most.

Which we rarely see for ourselves.

Now, I’m off to wash my hair…

You can always act like one of them to regain what they know and you forgot…

Things like…

You are a divine creation!

You are wise beyond measure!

You are LOVED!

Now…

Go outside and play with the other kids in adult clothes!

Whisper_261

Remember when you were a little kid?

You laughed readily…

You acted wild and care free…

You wore your emotions on your sleeve…

You said whatever popped into your head…

You were full of JOY!

Isn’t that what life is all about?!

Where did that kid go?…

The years…

The heartbreak…

The set backs…

You got older…

Life took over…

You can get that little kid back!

Act as if…

You didn’t have a care in the world!

You could speak your truth!

You were full of JOY again!

Guess what?

All of those things will come true!

You see…

It’s a choice…

YOURS!

Gotta go…the monkey bars are calling my name…

Whisper_259

Why, you say?

Let me count the reasons…

  1. You have gifts that were only given to you. No one else.
  2. They differentiate you from your 7 billion brothers and sisters.
  3. They prove that God loves variety.

I have a question for you…

Doesn’t celebrating everything that is unique about you…

make more sense than celebrating all the ways you are like someone else?

I thought you’d agree.

You are so unique that way.

Celebrate, celebrate, dance to the music

Your own!

Whisper_258

Got it?!

You are unique.

You have a purpose unlike any other.

You were created with all that you need to fulfill that purpose.

And…

No one ever created, or who will be created…

Is just like you.

No one.

Yep, you are one of a kind.

The best kind there is.

This puzzle of life just wouldn’t be complete without you.

Whisper_256

Pretty simple idea…

No worries.

No cares.

No regrets.

Simply JOY.

THAT is why you are here.

The other stuff?

Just things you made up before you rediscovered the truth.

Isn’t it great to get your memory back?!

Come to think of it…

It’s a real JOY…and you are too!

I love the word GRACE!

The word resonates with me in so many ways.

At the start of each day say this sentence a few times and see how you feel:

I will live this day with grace.

I will live this day with grace.

I will live this day with grace.

And, guess what?

I bet you do.

You are so very graceful…
