Words of Wisdom

The following is on a plaque Im gifting to one of my women’s circle friends tomorrow at our gift exchange party. It’s a ‘pirate party’, so I might end up with my own gift at the end of the day~
I love these ladies, they’re my *aunties* of choice. Naughty and nice, full of wisdom and life experience~ a blessing to know, each and every one.

~Words of Wisdom~
Life is what you make it!
Live with Intention! Do what you love! Celebrate diversity! Keep learning!
Play with abandon! Tell silly jokes! Keep confidences! Listen carefully!
Always say please and thank you! Be generous! Seek wisdom!
Go out of your way for someone you barely know!
Stand up for the little guy! Keep your mind open!
Tell your friends you appreciate them! Share your passions!
Read to a child! Throw your head back and sing!
Never, ever give up!  -anon

Namaste and Happiest of Holidays~ Genie

Spiritual Laws of Superheroes- book review

This is a wonderful book by Deepak & his son, Gotham Chopra.”Spiritual Laws of Superheroes” Harper One, ISBN 978-0-06-205966-6

Dont be put off by the cover, you’ll find its full of really. deep. stuff.
In ‘Superheroes’, Life’s Deepest Secrets are presented in a light, easy to read way.The introduction explains how this angle of presentation came to be~
as a retelling of timeless Archetypal stories via comic book prototypes.
It also gives us a glimpse of the private father/son world and
heartwarming bond between Deepak and his son, Gotham.It basically is a condensed version of All anyone ever needs to know to find enlightenment/contentment/power & peace in life. -my review.Thumbs up

I like it so much I’m recommending it to everyone, from every background;
it’s easy to read, and is a great way to wrap your head around deeper issues
even if you’ve never picked up a ‘Deepak Chopra book’ before!

It uses Superheroes to explain the Archetypal Laws of Balance,
Transformation, Power, Love, Creativity, Intention and Transcendence,
that we can develop in order to live the life of our dreams!

Keep your eyes open for it. It may be in your library already
or you may want to download it to your ipod.
If/when you see it, in the grocery store or on a bookshelf,
pick it up and buy it!    Peace

~Oh and don’t forget to play every day too~
Namaste’

International Water Day

I just finished reading an article on the Care2 newsletter I receive online. It was filled with lots of eco-tips on how to save water, a topic that is close to my heart. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, we always had lots of water and regular flooding during the 60s before dams were built along rivers. But even with all the water and beauty it created around me the ideal of preserving healthy forests and river systems, and fighting for a clean environment, was embedded into my psyche. It’s something I’ve never taken for granted. I will call someone on letting their tap water run longer than a few seconds! I recycle everything I can and try to get my neighbors to do the same. It’s just part of being responsiblefor myself and caring for the Earth that I believe everyone needs to address.Moving to the inland high desert called Colorado made me appreciate water even more. There have been many summers here where water usage has been restricted. There are more attorneys in Colorado than any other state in the union concerned with water rights and clean water is a topic everyone should be concerned with no matter where they live.

It’s true, there are lots of horror stories about the state of our oceans and rivers today. Care2 regularly sends petitions that I can add my own comments to then click to send to people in positions of power. One could be cynical about the good it does, but I choose to believe that any positive act filled with intention for the good of all, has power. When many of us act together a synergy is created that can accomplish great things!

I’d also like to address the Spiritual aspects of water. Our bodies are made of mostly water. The blood running through our heart center activates our emotional center, literally and metaphorically.
Consider these questions; How do I relate to others? Do I dump my emotion on people or horde it? Am I always ‘thirsty’ for the drama of emotion? Can I find ways to act with balanced intent and share my emotion by using kind words to others as well as being gentle with myself?
Today, ponder the element of WATER and EMOTION and see if you can find a still, quiet place inside where the water is calm, where you can find a place of reflection.
Bright Blessings!! Happy Water Day!
