My Name Is “Human”

What’s yours?

We must be and remain sensitive to every measure of the risk and anxiety that the world is presently experiencing. We must keep our heads on straight — and not in the sand — and acknowledge the truth of all sides, but focus only on the good, and the uplifting.

This is an opportunity to become healthier, stronger, smarter, more appreciative and loving-kind than ever before.

Subsequently, we should remain diligent in keeping ourselves and others safe and sheltered, but we must also remain positive. And with our due diligence in preventative measures, we must remain hopeful and free from fear and paranoia. Our biggest strength and focus should be a fervent faith in ourselves — and in whomever or however we choose to name our truest God.

We must come together as a world community in this fight that can only be won by steady courage, cool heads, scientific knowledge and facts, and compassionate, caring, understanding and loving-kind hearts.

For starters, it’s good to be clean.

Germs and diseases of every measure thrive in clutter and in hygienically-challenged places and areas of all kinds. Let’s please take this opportunity to up the hygienic curve — to clean our homes, thoroughly, every day, to make them shine and sparkle for our health and the health of our planet; to clear the clutter, and to make our little corner of the world as spotless and hygienically-sound, right alongside — and for the very optimum health — and highest good — of all.

Because when the dust settles from the misguided battles of others (and it will settle), it will be the loving-kind individuals — those that never raise a finger (including “that” one), who will be left standing, and shining bright.

So, be the steady, calm presence and voice amidst the noise. Remain loyal, obedient to the law, and open-minded. And more than anything, please be loving-kind, in all thinking and speaking.

Cool it with the arguments

You can’t win an argument with someone who has no memory of the good things you’ve done, who ultimately doesn’t care about the good things you’ve done, and who only remembers and cares about the things they do.
