WE CAN CHOOSE

by Freddy Little Massi on Saturday, May 26, 2012 at 12:48am ·

GOD CREATED THE WORLD TO SIMPLY BE A SIMPLE ONE WHERE EVERYONE LIVE SIMPLE LIVES……………..

HE BLESSED IT WITH ALL THE PURITIES TO PERFECTION WHICH CAN AFFORD US LIFE FOREVER FREE OF SICKNESS & HARDSHIP.

HE PLACED BEFORE US ALL THINGS IMPORTANT FOR OUR COMFORT & THE COMFORTS OF OTHERS

HE PLANTED FOOD ON THE LAND, PUT ANIMALS TO LIVE IN HARMONY  AMONGST US ,  PLACED FISHES IN THE OCEAN AND ALL THINGS THAT CAN FLY IN THE SKY.

GOD GAVE TO US EACH OTHER AND EMBEDDED MANY TYPES OF EMOTIONS INTO OUR HEARTS AND GAVE US THE MOST IMPORTANT GIFT OF ALL……….THE GIFT OF INDIVIDUAL PERSONALITIES…..THE GIFT TO RATIONALIZE AND MAKE DECISIONS……….THE GIFT TO CHOOSE BETWEEN RIGHT & WRONG & THE GIFT OF LOVE, LIKE ALL OTHER CREATURES OF HIS WORLD WITH THIS DIFFERENCE:

THE WISDOM TO CHOOSE HOW TO SHOW LOVE .

WE HAVE CHOSEN TO POLLUTE THIS PERFECTION OF GOD’S PUREST CREATION, AND MISTREAT ALL THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO OUR COMFORTABLE CONTINUED EXISTENCE………………………………………………………

WE HAVE CHOSEN TO ENDLESSLY DESTROY AS MUCH OF EARTH’S LIFE FORMS THAT ONCE GAVE US ENOUGH TO EAT SO TO SUSTAIN US AND PREVENT US FROM HUNGER AND STARVATION………………………

WE HAVE CHOSEN TO USE THIS GIFT OF HOW TO LOVE IN WAYS THAT BRING US THE SADNESS & TROUBLES THAT ENGULF OUR ONCE PERFECT WORLD ………………………………………………………………………

WE HAVE CHOSEN THE TO TURN BLIND EYES TO THOSE WHO ARE POOR , WEAK , SICK AND WHO ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF HELP SO THAT THEY CAN HAVE A LITTLE OF WHAT WE MAY HAVE IN EXCESS:

NOW WE CAN CHOOSE TO BE DIFFERENT¬†AND STOP DESTROYING WHAT WE NEED TO KEEP US ALIVE AND HEALTHY…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

WE CAN CHOOSE TO CHANGE THE WAY WE LOVE AND OPEN OUR EYES SO THAT WE CAN RECOGNIZE THE ONES WHO NEED A LITTLE FOOD TO EAT, OR A BIT OF CLOTHES TO WEAR, OR A SOME SHELTER FROM THE COLD OR EVEN A FRIEND TO TALK TO …………………………………………………………………………………………

 

WE CAN CHOOSE TO CHANGE THAT PART OF THE WORLD WHICH IMMEDIATELY AFFECT OUR EVERYDAY LIVES BY DOING JUST THIS,

CHOOSE TO BECOME A PART OF US HERE AT¬†¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†FREDDY & LITTLE MASSI CALLING CORP¬†WHO CHOSE TO¬† DEDICATE OUR TIME & EFFORT IN DOING JUST THIS…….

IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO? Rambles on a popular quote…

by Michelle W Bernhard on Friday, May 11, 2012 at 11:57am ·

IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO? IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?

It’s amazing where you can be led by researching something. I wanted to philosophize (BIG word) on the above quote, and out of sheer curiosity started looking to see where it came from. Well, this led me to a maze of sources, though the most often-cited is the 1st century Jewish scholar Hillel the Elder. Just for the record – he is also cited in WIKIPEDIA (always remember this is open web sharing, *smile*) as being the one who came up with the “Golden Rule”. I’ll let you guys Google, it’s a fascinating journey. Kind of like in the days before Internet (hrm… you did not hear that, did you?) when you’d start looking up a word in the dictionary (these are not extinct) and spend a little while there because you kept finding other really cool words you did not know, and in the end you forgot what you were looking up in the first place, but it didn’t matter any more… But I digress…

The abovementioned quote has obviously been around for a long time, probably tagged on crumbling walls since tagging was thought up and pasted on websites maybe since the beginning of the social network epoch, until it has become so familiar that a lot of us read it and nod and maybe don’t think about the meaning of it. So what brought it to my mind? Another Facebook post by a friend of some words by Leonard Peltier (thank you for posting, Bear Gonzales!) which reflected this idea very well.

Thing is, what does this quote mean to most of us? Well if I had to put it into a few words it would probably boil down to “service – duty – loyalty – abnegation “. I was blithely going to expound on this when I came across the link below, written a couple years back by a guy in the Army. I’m not Army myself, but well, this guy said what I had planned to say, and he said it quite well IMHO, from his point of view. So I’m not about to be presumptious or pedantic enough to try to improve it. Give it a read if you like…

OK, so what does it mean to you? let me go hang out some wash and then make us some coffee and tea while you think about it…¬†

Blessings and love

LOOK NOW AND LISTEN

by Michelle W Bernhard on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 11:51pm ·

In this day of instant information we are so swamped with images and sounds that we sometimes no longer see or hear what is truly going on around us.
Take the time to LOOK and LISTEN and you will be reminded that THERE IS BEAUTY IN THE SMALL BLESSINGS. A ladybug crawling in the sunshine on your windowpane, or a raindrop sliding slowly down that same glass pane on a dark day with yet the horizon lightening…and then a rainbow breaks its colors across the sky in a leap that thrills the heart and makes the soul wonder in amazement at the glory of it all. The sweet song of a blackbird in the morning, or the sound of rain on the roof at night… while you are secure in your bed, ready to sleep.
Take the time to look at the people in the street; just sit on a bench or terrace, and watch the passers-by… Listen to their comments. Do you hear their voices? They will remind you that others live the same as you and love the same as you and cry tears in despair when their troubles are great… the same as you.
In the shattering silence left behind from the riot of information we have to digest, we sometimes do not see our own blessings. Family, friends, food on the table, clothes and a good house; a job to secure all these and keep our family from want and our children in school.
Not everybody has these things. And in that same shrieking silence that so often deafens us to the cries of others in distress, we may become blinded and do not turn our heads to see our brother or sister struggling while we pass…
LOOK NOW AND LISTEN… Don’t turn away.¬†
Live. Love. Communicate. Have compassion. Have faith. Don’t be silent.

 ~Michelle

I AM NOT NEAR PERFECT

I MAY NOT BE LIKED BY EVERYONE.
I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO REACH OUT TO ALL THE PEOPLE.
I MAY SHORTFALL AT TIMES.
I MAY DERAIL SOMETIMES.
I MAY NEVER DO ALL THAT I WOLD LIKE TOO.
I MAY NEVER GET ALL THAT I ASK FOR.
I MAY ALWAYS BE IN SEARCH OF BETTER.
I MAY ALWAYS BE CHALLENGED.
I MAY ALWAYS BE ON THE DEFENSE.
BUT………………………………………………………………………..
I WILL ALWAYS BE HERE TO STAND UP AGAINST ALL ODDS AND REACH THE FINISH LINE………………………………………..
I LOVE THE ONES WHO THROW DIRT ON ME BECAUSE IT MADE ME WISER AND MORE CAREFUL……………………………………….
I JUST SO LOVE MY LIFE AND EVERYTHING THAT TAKES PLACE IN IT………………………………………………………………………………
I LOVE THE ONES WHO MADE ME FAMILY BECAUSE THEY ARE REAL & FAMILY SHOULD BE REAL……………………………………AND TOGETHER WE WILL BE STRONGER , BETTER & WE WILL..

EVEN THOUGH YOUR LIFE MAY NOT “SEEM” PERFECT,MAYBE YOUR WORLD DOESN’T ” FEEL” COMPLETE, MAYBE YOU “THINK” YOU ARE ALONE, MAYBE YOU “BELIEVE” THINGS COULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT, MAYBE YOU “WONDER” IF YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IN YOUR LIFE OR MAYBE YOU “FEEL” YOU ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

I HAVE SOMETHING TO SHARE WITH YOU!

NOBODY’S LIFE IS PERFECT ,

YOUR WORLD IS ONLY AS COMPLETE AS YOU ARE CONTENTED!

YOU ARE NEVER ALONE!

THINGS ARE AS GOOD AS YOU MAKE IT!

THE PLACE YOU ARE  AT THIS POINT IS WHERE THE CREATOR WANTS YOU TO BE 

AND NEVER DOUBT FOR A MOMENT, OR HAVE ANYONE MAKE YOU BELIEVE ,THAT YOU ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH, BECAUSE YOU ARE BETTER THAN MOST!!!!!!!!!!!

BE SAFE & ENJOY YOUR EVERY MOMENT THAT  YOU BREATHE  & THE DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS & YEARS AHEAD OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† David Anthony…..

IF YOU MUST COMPARE YOURSELF, THEN DO SO TO SOMEONE WHO CAN ADD TO YOUR BETTER QUALITIES!

IF YOU SHOULD REACH OUT TO HELP, THEN DO SO WITHOUT LOOKING BACK FOR ANY REWARDS AT THE END!

IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE JUDGED, THEN DON’T PASS JUDGEMENT ON ANYONE!

IF YOU SEE US ALL AS EQUALLY DUMB, THEN HAVE YOUR INTERNAL EYES CHECKED !

IF YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE, THEN SEEK YOURSELF A PLACE WHERE NO ONE ELSE WILL FIND YOU!

IF YOU THINK THAT LIFE IS PERFECT AND REVOLVES AROUND ONLY YOU, THEN YOU ARE ALONE IN YOUR OWN WORLD!

IF YOU THINK THAT REVENGE IS YOUR ONLY SATISFACTION , THEN REMEMBER THAT IT’S A CHAIN REACTION THAT WILL ONLY STOP AT THE STARTING LINE!

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS, YOU WILL FIRST NEED TO BE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE LOVE WHEN YOU SEE IT!

IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH FROM SOMEONE, JUST MAKE THEM ANGRY!

IF YOU HAVE TO BE ANYTHING OF OF SUBSTANCE IN THIS WORLD, THEN YOU NEED TO BE YOURSELF AND BE THE BEST THAT YOU CAN BE AT IT!

IF YOU FELL LIKE COMPLICATING SOMEONE’S LIFE, THEN COMPLICATE YOURS AND LEAVE THE REST OF THE WORLD TO ENJOY THE HAPPINESS THAT YOU CHOSE NOT TO APPRECIATE!

SO, GO AWAY AND LEAVE US ALONE! LOL
