Knowing how to please God requires one to “Be” God.
Knowing how to please others requires the same skill.
Learning how to please one’s self may take a lifetime but even if we fail, we will have come a million times closer to success than with the aforementioned choices.
Another choice: Accept The Love and Pass It On.
THE LANGUAGE OF LOVERS
EMPATHY is the language of Lovers; SYMPATHY on the other hand is the language of the aloof.
Empathy is the Affirmation of the Fearless, the Willingness of the Faithful, and the home of Compassionate, Freedom Lovers everywhere. Empathy is outbound and frees those who know Love to share it. “Accept the love”; be willing to share it; to “Accept the Love and pass it on”.
THE BACK-SCRATCHER’S MANTRA
SYMPATHY is the ammunition of the compettive poeple everywhere. it segues from Been there – done that (I’ll never go there again.)”, “I know whatcha mean”, “Yup, I can identify with that; why I remember…”. Theirs is the voice of Approval, at best; a bargaining chip; “I’ll make your world safer but you’ll owe me; know what I mean, know what I mean, huh, huh, do ya huh?”
IDEA – PATH – GOAL
The birth of an idea is much like the birth of life itself and the future of that idea is much like the birth of the individual who gave this idea life and affirmed that new life by creating a goal.
Some say focus on the goal; others say when in doubt, do the next thing without judging, without predicting; without expectation.
It is a popular idea to stay focused on the goal. When we do that however we are focusing on the death of the idea.
