Well, I'm borrowing today's Daily Reminder from Neale Donald Walsh again. Today's advice is something I'm aware of, something I try to live by. But I forget about it way too often. I think it's particularly good advice in these days of the kind of deranged political stuff going on in the US right now. I'm so disturbed by people like Sarah Palin and all the things that the folks in the Tea Party want to do to my country (I know, it's their country too) and the people in it. I'm disturbed that there are towns out there that would let someone's home burn to the ground because of failure to pay a $75 fee. I'm troubled that people begrudge their fellow citizens in need help with food or health care. And I get really caught up in it.... which is REALLY bad use of my brain and my thoughts. It makes me miserable and it gives power to the negative. Not to brag, but I recognized that to a degree when I was very young and I listened to people in church talk more about the Devil than about God. I thought... they think they worship God, but they don't actually trust God. Their faith - where they put their energy is into the Devil. But I digress.... I'll let Neale Walsh speak for himself.
Some things I'm grateful for today:
- fall colors
- Angel and Tara Grace
- Neale Donald Walsh
- the power of thought
- the complexity of the human spirit
Have a Great Day!
