Let's Talk

What's important...

November 22, 2010

With lack of mind discipline, it is so easy to get dragged down into the fray - to take all too seriously the rancor of polarized polemics pounding us perpetually in what John Stewart aptly called the 24-hour perpetual pundit conflictinator.

So, we come around to Thanksgiving. This year my wife, Melanie, and I went to a multi-denominational service to celebrate and give thanks for EVERYTHING; the good, the bad, the indifferent. But, most of all, giving thanks for friends, loved ones, and others who reach out and want to connect; to at least on the physical plain, heal the illusions of separation and division so masterfully played on to keep us off center.

So, have fun this holiday season. Don't worry if you can't buy everything on your list. In fact focus on what's important and makes the difference. Make a different kind of list. A list of who you are going to call, who you will re-connect with, who you will strive to make amends with, etc...

PEOPLE, PLANET, PURPOSE - breathe in, breathe out, EMBRACE.
