The living transmission of my Life

Mom-daughter-handsMy 4 year old daughter and I talked about Love last night.

I told her that I love her more and more every day. “The bigger you get, the bigger my love” I continued.

She said: “No mammy, you loved me as much when I was a little baby!”

Then she suddenly asked “Will you still love me when I am not a kid any more, when I grow up?” I said: “Yes sweetie!”

She continued: “Even if I am adult and have kids already?!” I replied “Of course baby! I will love you forever!”

She was completely astonished and I could feel with every cell of my body how awareness is being born in this kid’s mind.

I could not help it – one of those moments when “Joy is coming out of my eyes”…

Every parent has those moments when we can’t help joy coming out of our eyes. The more present we become for our children’s lives, the more of these moments…

We are currently trying to find ways to teach our daughter how the past, present and future work. And our Love – that was and will be – looks something of a constant and a good support system to help her get closer to the concept of time-continuum.

We have to show and teach our children that Love is something of a constant throughout the human continuum, the one thing we could all relay to as the living transmission of Life.

I believe our work as parents will be so much easier and fulfilling if we keep reminding that to ourselves too! Our role as parents would be a success if we show and teach our children that they are totally lovable so they understand and start feeling this in their bones. If we show them and teach them they should treat people in their life as totally lovable.

This is the future I would like to see and I am ready to work for it every day. What about you?

A NYC SWEET LESSON ON PATIENCE

[This text isn’t mine. I read it in the internet and there was no author mentioned. I could not help but share it for the benefit of all. Hope it will help you as it helped me.]

A SWEET LESSON ON PATIENCE …

A NYC Taxi driver wrote:

“I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I honked again. Since this was going to be my last ride of my shift, I thought about just driving away but instead I put the car in park and walked up to the door and knocked. ‘Just a minute’, answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.

After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90’s stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940’s movie.

By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.

There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
box filled with photos and glassware.

‘Would you carry my bag out to the car?’ she said. I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.

She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.

She kept thanking me for my kindness. ‘It’s nothing’, I told her. ‘I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother to be treated.’

‘Oh, you’re such a good boy, she said. When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked, ‘Could you drive
through downtown?’

‘It’s not the shortest way,’ I answered quickly..

‘Oh, I don’t mind,’ she said. ‘I’m in no hurry. I’m on my way to a hospice.’

I looked in the rear-view mirror. Her eyes were glistening. ‘I don’t have any family left,’ she continued in a soft voice. ‘The doctor says I don’t have very long.’ I quietly reached over and shut off the meter.

‘What route would you like me to take?’ I asked.

For the next two hours, we drove through the city. She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator.

We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived when they were newlyweds. She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.

Sometimes she’d ask me to slow in front of a particular building or corner and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.

As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, ‘I’m tired. Let’s go now.’
We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, with a driveway that passed under a portico.

Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up. They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.

I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door. The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.

‘How much do I owe you?’ she asked, reaching into her purse.

‘Nothing,’ I said.

‘You have to make a living,’ she answered.

‘There are other passengers,’ I responded.

Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug. She held onto me tightly.

‘You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,’ she said. ‘Thank you.’

I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light. Behind me, a door shut. It was the sound of the closing of a life.

I didn’t pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove aimlessly lost in thought. For the rest of that day, I could hardly talk. What if that woman had gotten an angry driver, or one who was impatient to end his shift? What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?

On a quick review, I don’t think that I have done anything more important in my life.

We’re conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments. But great moments often catch us unaware … beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

My takeaway from this is: if I establish patient awareness and joyful giving as my way to be, my life would be a far more blissful and fulfilling way to drive along. Not only to me, but most of all to others.

What’s yours?

Between your ears

‘Hell’ and ‘Heaven’ happen between your own ears.
Now if you can admit you are responsible for the space between your ears you would create your choice.
If you can’t, keep blaming the others, the destiny, the world or its surroundings.
Whoever!

Fence off!

Susan Boyle Britain's Got Talent 2009Come-oooon! I watch this over and over again… a damn good example of human talent for judging around appearance. And buy in covers.

Instinctively -> Instantly -> Cynically -> At first sight ->

What I’m talking about is > Britain’s Got Talent 2009 – Susan Boyle

The judges, front panel and audience, all judged right out into the first couple seconds. Cynical indignation was in the air for a while…

Well, the first step is to learn not to show it. But, whoever tried to go beyond that step, appreciate it may take quite a years to cultivate a non-judgmental inner attitude.

Call me if
* Your first thought was “Cool! She’s got guts for a stormy weather!”
* Then after she spoke “Wow, clever babe. She’s got talent to be a comedian!”
* Then when she got into it you were a bit/ or more of a goose-flesh…

But at the end, even after all our 3 fellows said, a big portion of the audience would turn around in their minds stuff like “Huh… Wowwow! Well, she could be a pro… before television” or “Hey, we’ve got radio opera!”

If we are to forget appearance for a sec. It’s true that the more talent you’ve got the more judges around your fence – back to appearance – especially if your fence is not fancy enough.

But it’s also true that you’ve got talent to fence them all off. And stun your village all the way up.

Even if it has to be later than sooner.
But fence off! And stun your village up!

Like she did 🙂

{Kudos Susan! > Check out how Susan goes on} 🙂

The Bridge Across…

… sister Cause and brother Effect…

Change your message and the world will certainly change its response.

Tune your back-end conversations and things will start to alter right in front of your nose.
a bridge across time
Heard this hundreds of times? At least it must sound familiar.

Well it looks easy but here are some of my discoveries of why it fails to pay most of the time.

Some people alter the message too often. Others expect immediate mirror-like manifestation. And quite many quit trying just before the new response germinates on their street…

Want some inspiration? Here is a cool video showcasing an immediate response 🙂

If you failed why was that? But above all, if you make a change what would it be?
