I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

AS 2010 LEAVES...







FOR THE PAST FEW HOURS, CLOCKS HAVE STRIKING MIDNIGHT ALL OVER THE WORLD USHERING IN 2011 & I KNOW MANY OF US ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR, BUT ISN'T IT JUST ANOTHER DAY IN LIFE IF YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT YOUR FIRST HEAVEN IS YOUR ULTIMATE YOU?

As you count down the time on the clock, don’t look up until you have looked in…only when you love all that’s inward you can truly love all else…tonite marks a new season on a perpetually revised calendar throughout...MAKE IT COUNT!

12 GAYS OF X-MAS: THE SEVENTH GAY OF X-MAS...






MAY THE SEVENTH GAY OF X-MAS BRING THE GIFT OF EXPLORATION! All of us have our own way of being in the world. It is easiest to comprehend this basic yet profound fact when we consider that every human being on the planet occupies a distinct role in the universe. We grow up in different environments, affected by a unique range of influences. The preferences, values, and beliefs we embrace are frequently related intimately to our origins. And the need to individualize our experiences is instinctive, as doing so enables us to cope when we must face challenges on our own. Consequently, each of us has developed a perspective that is uniquely ours. Interacting peacefully and constructively with people from all walks of life is a matter of first understanding where they are coming from. Then we can adjust our expectations so that we avoid making undue assumptions about what they are about.




In the face of emerging interpersonal conflict, it is easy to assume that others are being difficult, unreasonable, or stubborn. We are apt to grow frustrated when someone in our environment does not share our opinions or feel compelled to support us in our endeavors. It is likely that the individual or individuals before us may simply possess differing notions with regard to what is and what is not important in this life. We can ease the tension that exists between us by reaffirming our belief in the fundamental right of all beings to determine their own destinies. To foster a harmonious relationship, we need to do our best to relate to the unique universes they inhabit. And as we discover what makes them tick, our ability to find a mode of interaction that is pleasing to both of us is enhanced.





When there are barriers keeping you from connecting with someone else, think of questions you can ask them to gain a more thorough understanding of their point of view. You may discover that in addition to the differences in perspective dividing you, they are subject to insecurities and other personal issues that influence their way of seeing the world. It is likely that you will never fully grasp the myriad complexities embodied by humanity, but you can go a long way toward encouraging mutually satisfying relations by reaching out to others in the spirit of sympathetic comprehension.



THIS YEAR'S END...

As a new year approaches, I can't help but pause and reflect. When I look back, I'm humbled by the thing I'm most thankful for. YOU!
As we look to the year ahead, I know that your path will face difficulty. But having seen how far you've come, I know that you are ready for the challenges ahead. 
So from me – and from my family to yours – I want to wish you a VERY HAPPY YEAR'S END!
