Currie's Gratitude 25 January 2014

There's war - there's always been war, as long as most of us have been alive. There have always been people being abused, there's always been horrible things in the world. Why are we outraged? We should just be quiet and figure it out, and work it out together.  [Dave Matthews]

Sometimes, just BEing, I have the sense that I am checking out. That I don’t really care. But the thing is, I am just NOT strident and outspoken. I think I am really a quiet sort, thoughtful, and yes, even intense in my commitment to certain ideas and ideals.

I much prefer collaborations and working together to find solutions. I’ve marched and I have demonstrated, but I feel my best work has happened without notice or fanfare of any sort.

If you have an enemy, then learn and know your enemy, don't just be mad at him or her.  [Denzel Washington]

It seems a lot of Life I have “just been mad” at those I have NOT understood. And I have thought that would BE Enough to keep things from getting too close to me, or taking me over.

Now I am shifting gears. I am BEing deliberate. I am trying to understand what it is that makes me retreat.

I am trying just to stay Present.

I love you, Currie

The best thing I think I can do is to just quietly send out positive, healing, loving energy--to myself, to everyone I meet, to the world. One does not need to speak.
