Rekindled by a Spark

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. ~ Albert Schweitzer

List three things you are thankful for:

Making A Difference

This excerpt from Julie Jordan Scott’s “Daily Passion Activator
The Art of Showing Up, Every Day” is causing me to think about how my actions affect situations. My prayer is: “I don’t want to be a hindrance but a help….” It is my nature to want to fix things and make it all better. These thoughts point out to me different areas where a choice can be made in a positive way. And the differences made are not only found in others life’s or perceptions but more importantly in my own life.
Again, these statements are spring boards for my contemplation. I haven’t arrived at whatever the end result will be, nor do I list them to condemn anyone who reads this, I am just trying to learn to think and find out where I am and where I need to be. If these thoughts stir you to consider your impact on people, and we both take a little step to improve our relationships… has made difference.

Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:

“I make a difference by showing up without any costume
on. Not layering myself in anything except “this
who I am.”

I make a difference by granting others permission
to just show up, to be less than perfect or perfectly
perfect in supposed imperfection.

I make a difference by asking a question and living
it before strategizing the course, knowing the way
back is always revealed in the just-right time if
knowing the way back is something I need to know,
if I need it, it is there.

I make a difference by smiling into people’s eyes.

I make a difference by Being Intensity.

I make a difference by pointing out the what’s working.

I make a difference when I allow the hunger to sit at
the table with me rather than frantically fill it,
noticing the flotsam, picking it up, prodding it,
folding it into a yellow envelope or fashioning
it into a ball.

Up and down I toss it, back and forth, over and
under I juggle it, this “flotsam” word Martin Luther
King spoke and I found and now keeps surfacing.

“Collective unconscious” he says, from Jung.

I put my finger in the hole in the wall which is
leaking water.

“What is it?” I ask.

“Is the water making a difference? Is the wall me
making a difference? Is the hole making a difference?
Is the whole me making a difference? Is my finger me
making a difference?”

The differences are all right and are all me, making
differences when I show up.

I show up, I make a difference.
