Blessings to All!
The following is an older post of mine, but I'd like to repost here , along with a few adjustments....
In the Spirit of Our Age-- it is my feeling that this is the Time for Reflection, Action, Being....
Many of us are becoming Aware of not only of ourselves but of our surroundings and of Mother Earth..
It is Time to Reflect upon Our:
And.... as a result...
We may try to sit and Think about various ways to...
However... we must not stop there!
Sitting, thinking, and pondering doesn't necessarily hurt but does it ever truly help?
If the objective of the Thinker is to learn from past experiences, quickly move on and implement the acquired Knowledge in Positive ways, then-----
Yes-- the Thinker becomes the Doer, a Powerful Protagonist
If the Thinker's objective is to continue to sit, over- analyze, over- agonize but Do nothing to benefit Self or Others, then----
No --- the Thinker is doomed to remain a mere Thinker, a Hapless Bystander in Life
So, this Time of Reflection---may also be a Time of Action
Call an Old Friend
Visit a Family Member
Smile at the Neighbor
Clean the House
Give to Charity
Walk a Mile
Wake up Earlier
Speak with Kindness
Create something New
Thus the Doer becomes that much closer to Being..
