Thanks be to Thee O God!
Really, I am thankful! Thankful to finally be on a trip without being sick — thankful that Kit did well in the Boston Marathon — thankful to be here in Ireland.
And, with just a bit of a smile on my face, I am thankful for my imagination — thankful I was raised on Science Fiction and alternative worlds. Because, God, it is so much fun to look at this perfect rectangle — a door shaped rectangle — in this cliff and imagine what and who could have caused it.
Now, God, it’s not that I am thinking it was Giants that did it — we haven’t been that long in Ireland! Still, WHAT FUN to let my mind ponder what other than plain old geology might have caused it.
Options! How important it is, God, to have options! To be aware of having been given the ability to generate options. . . create new possibilities. I remember in the movie Dumbo the mouse giving Dumbo the “Magic Feather” and sure enough, Dumbo could fly with it. Magic? Or is it the Power of the Placebo?
Or it is just Opening the Door to a new Possibility? Ah God. I look at History and I think THERE IS SO MUCH EITHER / OR THINKING! It seems as if the world divides up into the equivalent of Left Hemisphere Thinking OR Right Hemisphere Thinking. Both are useful and important — but one or the other gets us sadly out of balance.
We need (but may not want) more Corpus Callosum people in our world — or maybe we just need to identify them and get them positioned properly! By that I mean people who can access BOTH hemispheres — people who respect and can work with a wide variety of types.
Understanding? Are the key attributes to solving many problems simply Understanding and Respect?
Ah yes, and the ability to forgive — to forgive the past — to forgive ourselves — to forgive others — acknowledging we have made dreadful mistakes — confessing them and asking for forgiveness — making amends. Hmmm. Sounds like we need to run everyone through AA.
More smiles. Thank You God for a Grand Day!
