Love or Fear

Might an Italian Nun bring love & lead us out of fear?

Hold that thought for a moment.

We either operate from a place of love or fear.

If we feel lack, we will worry continuously.

If we detach, we can reach a place of peace.

It is a state of mind & heart.

Love drives out fear.

Love is the stimulus of creativity & innovation.

Love takes over our whole being.

That should be music to all our ears.

Now see if love does not flood through you as you watch this little Nun bring the house down, joy to their hearts, & tears to their eyes.

The Creative Spirit Within

Each of us are born with a creative spirit that is the Creator’s gift.

Whether we discover it & how we use it is up to us, individual choice.

I thought you might want to take the next 30 minutes & experience it in action!

Video #1, you must follow right to the end to see the real miracle & the 2nd address has 2 short videos which will surprise you as much, when you move from left to right:

Creatively speaking, how do we top that. David

Blackfish – Are We Animals

CNN recently ran a documentary on the Orca Whales which populate our B.C. Coast. Here they run wild.

I suggest that you watch the following trailer: http://blackfishmovie.com/

Now I suggest you watch the full documentary on Netflix or whatever video service you have & make up your own mind.

However, before you do, food for thought:

During the Roman Empire, civilized folks(like us) went to Amphitheaters instead of Movie Theater’s to watch live Gladiator killings of people & animals. Apparently not treated differently.

“Amphitheaters: They were used for events such as gladiator combats, chariot races, venations(animal slayings) and executions” Wikipedia

In their case they killed the animals for fun & people too. Blackfish just suggests we drive them nuts. Some environmentalists would suggest extinction.

Now we might say “that was in Roman times, we have acted more civilized since then”.

What about slavery in recent times?

“Slavery is a system under which people are treated as property to be bought and sold, and are forced to work. Slaves can be held against their will from the time of their capture, purchase or birth, and deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to demand compensation.” Wikipedia

Yes, but – hasn’t slavery been abolished, aren’t we more enlightened?

“Historically, slavery was institutionally recognized by most societies; in more recent times, slavery has been outlawed in all countries, but it continues through the practices of debt bondage, indentured servitude, serfdom, domestic servants kept in captivity, certain adoptions in which children are forced to work as slaves, child soldiers, and forced marriage. Slavery is officially illegal in all countries, but there are still an estimated 20 million to 30 million slaves worldwide.” Wikipedia

Twenty to thirty million worldwide? Today?

All of us are the Creator’s Children, is it possible for us to get past imprisoning any of God’s Children & allow them to run wild in their natural setting?

Might it take a rethinking of who we are & dominion.

Leadership

Have you ever thought of yourself as a leader?

In the traditional sense maybe not but take 10 minutes to hear from this woman the three questions that might lead you to believe you still have the possibility.

Question 3: Are you courageous enough to abandon the past?

A friend of ours was!

http://toddmillarspeaking.com/

Can you imagine a fellow that makes a $600 million profit in 6 months finding himself needing to decide what to do in the future?

Todd did!

What impresses Ina & I, is that Todd was able to be true to his values & has reengineered his life as an author & speaker of international renown.

You might want to pick up his book Boardroom to Base Camp & share Todd’s journey.

I write this as a tribute to our good friend Todd Millar, & his wife Barb, who we are sure helped keep Todd’s focus on the important things, like health, family, community, & friends.

Never give up! You can always change your situation, it is primarily a matter of perception.
