ENGAGING MINDS July 13, 2012 (c)
Today I biked to the park, and sat under my sacred tree, and spent some time quietly meditating.
I started to read more on the book I have about being a Critical Thinker, and it talked about
Where are you going in life, as I guess that has been my journey for the last 9 years?
This gives you steps to define your decisions, and what are your long –term objectives?
Also it asks what we want to accomplish in life. You know each time I write and I loose my writing it
Just gets better, yet I still have the same kind of out come that I want in life.
Further on as I read, under quiet tree Humour as Argument and it talks about the founder of Starbucks, and he
Wrote a monologue and made a joke of his burnt beans, and his simple market plan.
Then his idea took off, and he has chains every where.
Later in the day I had to get out again and just wanted to read, my library book.
I biked by this little boy, that was making funny faces at me, and his Mom said “oh lovely flowers in your basket.” She had a copy of Hungry Games in her hand.
When I got to Table Ten the place was full, except on table just for me. I asked the waitress
About the new wine and she said she would get the owner to come out, and tell me about it.
She came promptly, and told me it was a nice summer blend.
Then I started to read, yet I could not help but notice, how many people came out, it was crazy inside.
I started to read , this woman talked about that she needed to get away from her toxic world so she could have a better quality of life , as I believe she did not have long to live.
When she left the toxic life, her life changed dramatically. There was no news, computer, no cans, and just real raw organic way of living. You know I noticed a family came in and the one by was so angry, he had this angry energy, and a glare in his eyes, so did his Mom. As they sat they hardly talked they sat on their phones
They all where lost in this other world. Then another man came out, and he had some book, with a real
Unique cover, and it looked raised, and he sat and read the whole time. His thoughts where fully focused on his book.
I was really tempted to ask him what book he was reading, as it sure did draw me in.
As most books now have the glossy cover, this was real authentic to me.
Anyways, I guess this woman in the book has a similar way of life that I am searching for
yet. Why do we have to leave to get a better quality of life? Why can we not create this?
with in, I guess that is what Authentic Souls is about, it is about using what you have, and where you are, and then creating the best life that you have. As we gather the pieces in life our quality of living just becomes that much better. When we leave the black shadow behind us people may laugh at your new ways.
Yet really they want that better quality of life, yet they just are not to sure how to go over that bridge.
And gather the pieces, and then use the tools in the toolbox, and climb the ladder with a new firm foundation.
You will always send them love light, and cheer them on yet they have to work hard very hard to get
to the pillars of freedom and success when you reach this stage you are truly in divinity.
