What I Stand For...

by Karen Garvey on 02/01/17

I rescue kittens and birds.  I talk to strangers.  I hug trees.  I look at people in the eyes.  I do not cower.  I do not retreat.  I do not live in fear.  I do not let others tell me how to think or how to feel or what to believe.  I believe in myself.  I believe in humanity.   I believe that every human being has the birthright to be respected, to be loved, and to be free.  I stand up for myself.  I stand up for others.   I recognize that differences cause many people to be afraid, to fear that which they do not understand, and I do my best to observe their behavior, prefer mine, influence for the better what I can, and move on.

Complaining is a non-productive luxury we cannot afford.  Wallowing in self-pity or fear of others is a waste of time.  If pointing fingers is the only exercise someone is getting, I suggest they go outside and run or hike or walk.  The body movement may even accidentally "get themselves out of the way" so that they can glimpse the truth that can come through a quiet mind.  The truth is we are one, here, there, and everywhere, on and off earth.


What controls you?  Fear?  Government?  Low self-esteem?  Disempowerment?  Make a decision right now that the only thing that controls you is you.  For better or for worse, that’s where the power lies.

So, head up, stand tall, be all you are meant to be, and ask others, in kindness, to do the same.


Shine on!

I love your analogy of "pointing the finger." Two thoughts come to mind: 1.Maybe the finger should be pointed towards one's self. 2. "The Enlightened One points towards the Moon and we say: What a beautiful finger."

I love the saying " When you point a finger at another three fingers point back at you." Check that out and point you finger.
