Speaking of Nothing

Β 

 

Slowly, she turned her head

nothing there that she could see

only stillness and a lovely feeling.

 

“Hello Nothing, and what have you

come to tell me today,” the woman said.

Β 

“How may I help you — or is it that

you’ve come to help me?”

 

Still nothing (but love) in the silence.

 

She (being human and all) went on

cheerfully chatting with nothing.

“What? What do you want?”

Β 

Nothing said nothing, of course.

In the silence, the day softened even more.

 

The woman smiled.

What had touched her was “nothing.”

What she felt in her heart was everything.

Friday Love: Bam! Gate Breaking, Anyone?

Good Friday, Everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a story about how I accidentally accomplished something on my bucket list. I ran through an exit gate while looking the other way. The hood of my car is scratched up, and one windshield wiper is a mess, but let’s have a good laugh about how we never expect what “getting what we want” includes!

Let me know if you relate…

Enough with the Name-Calling

It seems to be a growing fad these days to call someone a narcissist, or declare they are toxic.
Β 
Political name-calling is similarβ€”we assign politicians and voters to categories, and brush them off as if they are unintelligent, inferior, or even worthless.
Β 
By labeling others, we miss their humanity. We gloss over their struggle, their best effort at dealing with life. We dismiss them.
Β 
We do to them what we believe they are doing to others.
Β 
Look past a label, and in the soft light of day, there stands a person like you or like me, coping as best they can. At the end of the day, no friend, parent, or lover making conscious choices intends to be mean, or to ignore, or to embellish. There is always more to the story.
Β 
If we label others, then for sure we label ourselves. We trap ourselves into believing we are less than. Or not enough. Or we don’t give ourselves the time and forgiveness to work through our “stuff.” Maybe, if we stopped accusing others of narcissism, we could forgive ourselves for those moments when we were narrow-minded, inconsiderate, or afraid.
Β 
When it comes to labels, nobody wins.
Β 
So, my dear people, I suggest we peer a little deeper into ourselves to investigate a need to separate ourselves from others by tacking them with a label filled with disdain or scorn.
Β 
It is my wish that you view this video and take it to heart.
Β 
Much love,
Terri
