As I look into the world, there’s some things I see that I want to talk about. Can I talk about them?” -Kirk Franklin
Lately the word on every street is change.
We’ve just begun a new year. The United States of America is getting ready to swear in a new president. The cosmic world has even ushered in new changes as it enters 2017 with a spirit of new beginnings. For those of you who are tuned in to astrology and numerology you know exactly what I’m talking about.
My question is, “how will we continue to communicate in a way that processes change on an equal scale?” Well let’s break it down so we can find the answer; together. Let’s look at the communication piece first. As we learn from the Sanctuary Model, Open Communication is the accurate display of thoughts and emotions to convey a specific message. We usually don’t have a problem with voicing our opinions right? We often say how much we like something, how much we don’t like something, what needs to happen in order for something to be better, or what has happened that’s caused something to get worse.
We have become so accustomed to talking about change, we tend to forget that change is just what it is; change. It’s transparency is the difference between a dollar and fifteen cents. I get it. Change isn’t my best friend either. It’s new, and it can simultaneously make us anxious, excited, and uncomfortable. So what do we do? How can we talk about change in order to process it effectively?
That’s just it. We have to DO. We can no longer just talk. We have to start acting in ways that support what we’re saying. Ever heard anyone say, “faith without works is dead?” Well if our actions aren’t charading our words, talk is still cheap, and the change we seek to make our fifteen cents a dollar won’t amount to anything. In order to effectively process the changes occurring around us we must take action; we must be of service.
On this Martin Luther King day of service in 2017 I’m encourage us all to be the change we seek. Take a moment to stop and think about what’s happening. Talk to someone about what can be done to perpetuate the occurrence, or what needs to be done to make it different. After the thinking and talking is done, then the changes we want to make can take place. It doesn’t even matter the size of the change that’s sought to be made. The only thing that matters is if we take the steps to get something done. Think about it. Talk about it. Be about it.
Let’s openly communicate the changes we seek. Let’s continue to be of service this year. The fruit of service is peace, and that’s the mountaintop we’re all trying to reach right?
You never know who’s mind you can change, who’s heart you can heal, or who’s life you can change with a simple message. I invite you to share this message with everyone you possibly can.
I love you all,
