What sets you apart?
Making a positive difference, in another’s life, is not hard.
Some guidance on how to begin:
Show restraint in saying the first thing that comes out of your mouth.
Be mindful when you drive, read, eat, talk, even when you listen. Give full attention to your actions of the moment.
Remember what your childhood was like when raising your children. Words are powerful and can create emotional fissures of low self-esteem or motivate greatness in all deeds.
Be seen with someone in public when everyone else has turned against them. Do not kick someone when they are down; one day you may be on the bottom looking up.
Surprise a friend in turmoil by not asking them what you can do — just do it. Doing the dishes, laundry, making a grocery run, picking up a prescription, washing a person’s hair can be invaluable gifts.
Help a friend who is overwhelmed with unemployment: take them to lunch, balance their checkbook, call the credit card people for them and reduce their interest rates, sit with them while they open their bills; anonymously pay for a home fuel delivery.
Donate food to the food pantry, clothes to the shelters, and time to the elderly who have no visitors in senior care centers.
When seeing a homeless person make eye-contact with them.
Imagine the word Tolerance tattooed on your chest.
You get the idea. The list is endless on how you can impact someone’s life.
This life is to be shared, not only with the four-legged, six and eight-legged, and winged ones that co-habit this Earth with us — with the two legged as well.
Spirituality is hard work, it takes effort. When you pass from this third dimensional reality you have your “light”, your essence, to be seen and welcomed by those we have loved and who are waiting to be with you again.
Each person has this incredible capacity to truly love and give forth of themselves to improve the quality of someone’s life.
Make your energy brilliant while you are in the present moment.
Karma is about action, not dormancy.
Jone’s blog was called “Reclaim Your Light” — and this post seems to be a part of her ongoing journey to bring this message to one and all. Jone believed that we are all born with that inner “Light” within our spirit — and that it is up to us to acknowledge this inner force, and to use it for good. How many of us are so involved with our phones or other technical devices that we are not paying attention! We seem to be living on the fringe of what is true and real. Let’s all try to be mindful and be aware of each precious moment.
She cared for those she met who had lost their light, those who had wandered off their karmic pathway, and one of her most ardent desires was to help these individuals to be able to once again begin to get in touch with their spirituality. Jone believed that our “Light” transcended death, and our consciousness lived on without the baggage and pain of our earthly body. Much of her life was devoted to helping heal those who had lost their way or couldn’t seem to heal themselves either spiritually or physically. Her karma was a difficult choice — helping to heal is draining, especially when there is not only spiritual depletion, but physical as well. Jone had a hands-on approach that helped many — but also took a toll on her own physical being.
Jone tried to share her innermost truths with all of us — in straightforward and simple language, she put forth her ideas, visions, philosophy, learned principles, hard-won facts, and always with a compassionate love of humanity. It would serve us all well to try to live by her example and show empathy for all our brethren.
