This Christmas/New Year holiday week ended up quite different than past years: not as much family (sickness, moved away, busy or other plans), but giving to others, friends instead! But took worthwhile, slower, reflective time to watch/read some inspiring stories/movies like ‘Door to Door’ ‘Rudy’ ‘Little Boy’ ‘The Dash’ ‘The Ripple Effect’.
“We make a living from what we Get … we make a life from what we Give!” (from ‘The Secret to Living is Giving’ by BJ Gallagher & Mac Anderson). I see the laws, principles, etc all around me: Substitution, Relaxation, Dual Thought, Growth, Forgiveness!!!
“…If we could just slow down enough to consider what’s true & real…And be less quick to anger, & show appreciation more… If we treat each other with respect, and more often wear a smile…remembering that this special dash (between birth & depart dates) might only last a little while… would you/I be proud of the things they say about how you/I spent our dash?” (poem by Linda Ellis)
“Have I done EVERYTHING I can possibly do?” (movie ‘Rudy’)
This week’s Haanel’s focus was on the concept, Harmony! A wonderful thought, yet a compellingly hard to grasp. I’m warming up to the idea of being in accord, Musically ‘concordant’, agreement in feeling/approach/action, sympathy, pleasing sounds played simultaneously. Sounds like our Mastermind Alliances to me!
Learning HARMONY is another theme for 2016!
