RYS 079: One Thing ALL Superheroes Have in Common

In this Episode:

 

All positive change comes about because we care. To be the change we want to see in the world we must care. Especially when we feel powerless because it is when we feel our voice does not matter that we must realize our voice most certainly does matter.

• Messengers of peace and love teach us the reason for being is to make ourselves and the world better off for our having lived.
• To create the life we want we get up off the apathy couch and get into the game.
• We make Gandhi proud by, “Being the change we want to see.”

RYS 078: Your Parent’s Religion Does Not Have to be Your Spirituality

In this Episode:

 

The relationship we have with the God of our belief is intended to be a personal one. That means it is necessary to question what we are taught to believe about the Divine because too often the organized religions to which we are exposed attempt to box God into a human form, or make it a one size fits all experience, or propose you need a middle man to communicate with the Divine.

• Just because someone believes something does not make it true.
• People who teach us beliefs are passing along what they have learned or been exposed to.
• When a label is placed on something or someone, human egocentric arrogance latches on to it preventing us from being open to see any other possibility.

RYS 077: One Way to Create Peace and Balance

In this Episode:

 

Although I am not aware of a specific verse in religious text where, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness,” is stated, we receive great spiritual benefit from working to be clean. While being clean pertains mostly to our behavior, thoughts, and language, it also relates to our surroundings.

• When our outer environment is neat and orderly, that level of organization spills over into our inner (emotional and mental) environment.
• Less clutter means less distraction, so our energy can be more focused and productive.
• Caring about our surroundings also grows our heart-awareness to the outer environment of our natural world.

Practice Your Faith

actions quotes

When I was in my late thirties I drove a little pick-up truck. On the back I had a Practice Random Acts of Caring and Kindness sticker. One day I was at a full-service gas station and a young man in his late teens who was filling my tank said, “I like your sticker but I don’t understand why you would have the sticker and also carry a big stick in the cab of your truck?”

There is a saying, “Out of the mouths of babes” meaning profound wisdom does not only come with age. His observation was a soul opener. He was right. How could I profess to be a supporter of peace and kindness and carry a big stick as if I was looking for trouble? I reached in, took the stick out and put it into the trash can.

I was reminded of my big stick and bumper sticker experience recently. I was on an LA City Bus when a man wearing a cross and carrying a Bible started an argument with another man over a seat. I thought to myself, “What an amazing world we will create when each of us who professes to be a faithful follower of an enlightened messenger of peace actually behaves aligned with the kind, respectful, tolerant, and loving tenants of our faiths.”

RYS 076: Stop Multitasking to Get More Done

In this Episode:

 

You and I live in an attention-deficit world. We navigate within social and business environments that expect us to experience life in nanosecond visual blips and sound bites. To keep up, fit in, or be seen as successful by the world, we buy into the assumption we can and should do more than one thing at once. We believe multitasking saves time. The fact is, multitasking not only causes errors to go up but we also slow down.

• The term “multitasking” originated with computers.
• The computer’s processor seems to accomplish multiple tasks at once because of time-sharing but computers do not actually doing more than a single thing at a time; they rotate through several tasks many times a second.
• Research shows human beings cannot switch tasks as a computer does and when we do attempt to multitask the incidence of errors goes way up and it takes far longer to accomplish the job than if tasks were done sequentially.

To Grow, Keep Learning

B

Someone once responded to one of my posts on Facebook –  the only education really worth having is that of personal experience. Reading books and going to school was not important to him.

While the personal experience each of us receives from the university of life and school of hard knocks is useful, so is the experience of others shared through books, periodicals, articles, and in educational settings, whether those are formal or casual.

We do ourselves a HUGE disservice by thinking we know all there is to know or  that we will personally experience everything in life necessary for us to make the best decisions that impact us and other people in the most positive ways possible.  To some ignorance may be bliss, but I’ve found it is continuing to learn that expands the boundaries of what we think we know. If we do not persistently seek knowledge we become a prisoner of our own egocentric mind and the thoughts it creates. And, simply because we think something does not mean it is real or true.

At one time the world was thought to be flat, our universe was the only one around, there was no electricity, running water in homes, internet, cell phones, vaccinations against disease, etc. I am grateful our ancestors did not settle for only what they thought in their own minds to be true or depend on just their own personal experience.

Intelligence is not about the degrees we hold but the willingness to admit we do not know everything and to seek knowledge. For me the smartest people are those with an eagerness to learn from their experiences and those of others. I for one enjoy learning from the experience of others which helps me grow so I can live my best life and encourage others to do the same.

RYS 075: Communicate with Care

In this Episode:

 

What you say, and don’t say, defines you to yourself and to others. How you communicate sets the stage for the relationships you have. It is amazing how much your self-image and the interactions you have with others improves when you assume responsibility for communicating with care.

• What you say constitutes about 7 percent of your communication.
• Almost 93 percent of your communication is non-verbal; the tone of your voice, inflection of words, and body language.
• Yes communication is what you say, but also how well you listen because truly listening to another person is establishing an emotional connection with the person talking.

In this Episode:

 

Have you ever walked out on a mediocre concert or play? Passed up having dinner with someone who only talks about him- or herself?
