I’m a shining bell
My perfection protects me
Nothing can penetrate
My inside is pitch black
My shell gets cracked
Brokenness opens me
I’m no longer perfect
Light enters the crack
I become enlightened
My heart swells
My ears open
I see with new eyes
My mind expands
My ignorance lessens
I see myself in others
I’m no longer superior
I help brothers and sisters
Broken together
We grow as one.

Marcie Monkey wasn’t happy
She and her husband, Titus Turtle, sought help
They consulted Ollie Owl, respected as a healer
“How can I help you?” Ollie asked
“I can’t make Marcie happy,” Titus’s eyes moistened
“Nothing I do cheers her up.”
Marcie nodded, both sides of her mouth turned down
“I do everything I can,” said Titus
“The harder I try, the unhappier she gets”
Ollie sat forward looking eye to eye with Titus
“It’s not your job to make Marcie happy,” he said
“Abraham Lincoln wisely observed,

To blame no one but myself,
To take full responsibility
For everything I’ve said or done,
Thought or felt,
Wow!

Our Image of God
Shapes our lives
A punishing judge
A supporting guide
Absent
Non-existent
What is your image?
How is it affecting you?

Santa Claus is a messenger from God,
He shares abundance, generosity, jovial caring,
Scrooge and the Grinch are stingy,
Wearing wizened hearts and shrunken souls,
We strive to be Santa and not Scrooge,
Copious presents and seven course meals,
Too much of a good thing boomerangs,
God disappears in “stuff” and a Roman orgy.

Growth is choice in motion.
Unhappiness is a choice. 
So is happiness.
Make up your mind to be happy,
Regardless of conditions and circumstances.

You cannot do anything
That contradicts your self-image,
Henry Ford observed:
“If you think you can, you can
If you think you can’t, you can’t
Either way you’re right.”
Be bold: do what you would do
If you knew you could not fail.

When you help only yourself you’re selfish,
When you help others at your expense you become resentful,
Good self-care is not selfish,
You can’t care for others if you don’t care for yourself,
First put on your oxygen mask so you don’t become a casualty,
Now help your child or your neighbor.
