Friday evening I had the great good fortune to be in a conversation with a friend.  This happens a lot for me as it turns out, and I am very grateful for all the amazing people in my life.  One thing we talked about has stayed with me for two days now, so I'm going to share it with you.  

We were talking about language, and being aware of the words we use; about how a "What" question can take you forward and kick off imagination and creativity, and how a "Why" question just sort of stops things dead and makes us look into the past.  Then we examined the Law of Attraction principle that says [paraphrased here] that the Universe doesn't hear the word 'No'.  When we say "I don't want to be poor" with the kind of feeling that might reasonably accompany that statement, the Universe hears the feeling and focuses on the concept of "poor" [because WE are focused on the concept of poor] and, being a generous entity, gives us more of of that.  We get what we ask for, and what we ask for comes in the form of our feelings.  Our feeling energy puts form to our thoughts and wants desperately to manifest in our reality.  So, be careful what you say; be careful what you think.  Be aware of your feelings, even when they might scare you.  They are very informative. The great ocean of abundance will match your feeling and manifest those things about which you feel most deeply.  

So, my hope for you today is that you can find those things in your life that make you happy, and generate more of that!  I am so happy that you are in my life.  Stay in touch.

So, it's Veteran's Day. My father's service was during WWII where he served in the motorpool in Texas and Japan after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He didn't talk much about his time. I'm guessing he didn't want to think about it. He moved forward, and there was nothing in my childhood that made me think that he was anything less than whole as he was gentle and kind to us kids. He was funny and smart and a work-a-holic... maybe that was how he dealt with his experience. I don't know. He just seemed like a regular, nice guy to me.

To this day, I cannot accept the need for a military, or for war. I do appreciate that people put themselves physically, emotionally, mentally and morally at risk every day for a purpose larger than themselves. That is what I am thankful for today... We all want a better world. Thank you Roger, and Dawn, and Susan N. and Mickey and Hoy and the hundreds of other people I know who did your part in service and now do your part every day to make the world a better place, right where you are - wherever that happens to be.
