Live it by fear

A cult leader informs his followers that there is an end and that it is near. They must be ready to face destruction and they have to do certain things in order to be ready. Be ready for Judgement Day.

A news report, documentary, an in depth look at something dangerous lurking; something that can harm us. All doom and gloom of not if but when such a thing will happen makes its way into our psyche as we listen, as we read, as we watch–waiting.

There will be no more food in a short period of time. No more clean water. No more trees. Basically no more planet earth.

There will be no where for children to play. No place for people to live, so action must be taken NOW! I will stop there, stop listing.

Fear. Why is it that some people take it upon themselves to stretch the truth in order to get our attention? Why is it that they want and expect us to live our lives by fear? That we must walk around constantly holding our breaths hoping that what they predict will happen does not. Everyday it is one thing after another as they awaken the paranoia of some. As they increase the fear of some people.

You have to pull the truth from out the lies, from out the fear. You have to pull away the emotions and look at facts. Yes there is a Judgment Day, but is arming yourself with weapons the way to be ready for it? Yes, there is a shortage of food and water, but to what extent? Is it as bad as it is painted? If we do not go totally green, will there still be an earth? If we do not believe in God, does that mean he does not love you or I?

Do not deny the reality of how something bad may be; but also do not add to it with fear mongering.

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂

It is for you?

There is a person trying to lose weight, but that person is doing it for someone else. Not because they really want to, but because that person has given a suggestion to do so.

Where does motivation end and dictating begins? And when dictating steps in, does resentment follow?

What Can I Say God

But THANKS. 🙂

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂

You make me . . .

You make me feel like a natural woman. No, not really.

How is it that those who are allegedly against bullying, name calling and trying to remake people are instead bullying, name calling and trying to remake people? If someone does not agree with your lifestyle, it is no reason or excuse to bash them into making or forcing them to agree.

Have a lovely, sunflower weekend. 🙂

You are the enemy

Have you ever found yourself wanting to do something but too afraid to go through with it? I am not talking about doing something negative; I am talking about doing something positive.

Sometimes the enemy of your own future is you. Sometimes the roadblock is not other people, but yourself.

Cost?

Does love cost anything?

Rights vs Privileges

Is it a right to go to school/college or is it a privilege?

Is it a right to go to them for free or is it a privilege?

Is it a right to have clean drinking water or is it a privilege?

Is it a right to have enough to eat or is it a privilege?

Is it a right to live in a safe environment or is it a privilege?

Is it a right to have freedom or is it a privilege?

Is it a right to have a job or is it a privilege?

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂

 

 

Near/Far

Does suffering bring us closer to others or does it draw us away from them?

Does suffering bring us closer to God or does it take us away from him?

Have a lovely, sunflower weekend. 🙂

Hmm

To be tolerated is not the same as being accepted.

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂

Money’s Worth

How does one go about deciding how much someone will get pay for a job that he/she is doing? What does it mean that someone is overpaid? How can you tell?

An actor, say George Clooney, because he is the first to come to mind. According to IMDB, he got a buck for Good Night, and Good Luck. Ocean’s Eleven, $20 million.

Tiger Woods, $75 million over 12 months, and not just from playing golf. http://www.forbes.com/sites/kurtbadenhausen/2011/05/31/the-worlds-highest-paid-athletes/

Highest paid musicians. http://www.forbes.com/pictures/eeel45hemh/1-u2-195-million-6/#gallerycontent

I started with the above mentioned group of people because I am still trying to understand what makes entertainment more valuable than say, a job as a firefighter, police officer, teacher etc. Would life be in danger if there were no teachers, firefighters or police officers? Would the world stop if an actor stops acting; or a musician stop singing; or an athlete stop competing? Would the world end if they stop endorsing products?

What is the money value of a job?
