At Day’s End…

A week ago today (Oscars, 2022) most of us witnessed an act of unprovoked violence on television around the globe, which solicited every known and unknown feeling and response over and under the sun…making everyone take a deeper look into how we respond and how we handle situations that call for one rising above their emotional impulses…Yet, going ever deeper still…where are we on the spiritual scale of evolution?

I came across a passage someone gave me many years ago…and it made me want to share it…because it reminded me of what we really are here on this planet to accomplish…it isn’t about you or me…it’s about “us”…Love…and creating a better tomorrow for everyone…no matter what…Maybe we will understand…Someday soon….

At Day’s End…

Is anybody happier because you passed their way?

Does anyone remember that you spoke to them today?

The day is almost over…and its tolling time is through…

Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Can you say tonight…in parting with the day that’s slipping fast…

That you helped a single person of the many that you passed?

Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said?

Does the person whose hopes were fading…now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day…or lose it…was it well or sorely spent?

Did you leave a trail of kindness…or a scar of discontent?

As you close your eyes in slumber…do you think that God would say…

“You have earned one more tomorrow…by the work you did today”?

Before you close your eyes tonight, ask yourself in earnest, these questions… “Did I make someone’s day better?” “Did I think about anyone else instead of myself?” “Was I thankful for what I have…enough to share with someone who doesn’t?”

Was I an “ass” or a blessing to someone?

At the end of the day we should already know the answer…because we make it a practice to add to someone’s life…not take away from it…

And it becomes second nature to be the best expression of yourself…

Because that wonderful, uplifted feeling you get in your heart…Gives you another tomorrow….and gives the world another revolution around the Sun….

Connectivity….

Connectivity…I have talked about it in the past…We are all connected…what we say…what we do…what we think…affects those around us…and those we don’t know…

We would like to think that we live inside our own little bubbles…in our own created corners of the world…We do not…This connection to all came up on the televised around the globe Oscar Ceremony, Sunday, March 27, 2022….

Witnessing the incident of assault upon Chris Rock by Will Smith made me physically ill…it was also described by other celebrities and people who witnessed the assault as making them physically ill as well…

Will Smith’s action reverberated around the world…and touched lives out of his sphere of everyday existence! His action took the life out of the celebration…and took away the light from the auditorium of people who were as well being acknowledged for their historic achievements…which fell to the wayside by an act of violence….

Love does not make us do crazy things…the inability to control emotions…rely upon intelligence…and understanding that it is love that gives us the opportunity to do the right thing…the humility and the insight to rise above any situation that would lead one to act impulsively and create a domino effect by not taking a step back first…and realizing the repercussions…to others…as well as yourself…is an individual act of free-will…

Anyone believing that they are chosen to be an ambassador or vessel of love and peace…should read and study passages from holy books and sages…which gives everyone the abilities to be unconditional in their love of humanity and becoming peacemakers…

“Sticks and stones can break my bones…but words can never hurt me.”

Will Smith was given an example of love from Chris Rock...Chris chose not to press charges…He hasn’t spoken about the incident…and for both men it was a test of spiritual evolution….someone lost…and someone gained….

I would recommend the reading of 1 Corinthians 13, verses 4-8 for Will Smith, his family…and anyone who believes it is their mission to be an example of love and peace…or again, any holy book that teaches the real meaning of Love….

We must understand how we all affect our human family…and the planet we live on…it is alive as well….

We are all connected….

Acts of violence destroy….

Acts of love restores….creates more love….and endures….lighting the world….

What kind of conduit will you be?

a day
