The Perfect Reminder

reminderLouise Hay’s most recent email to me reminded me that Life loves me, that I can ask Life itself to take care of it, that Life wants to care for me. Still in the soup interiorly, Donna Henes’ blog post became a way through the inner swamp—just for today. A gorgeous story …

As I was deciding what to write this week, this wonderful story arrived in my inbox so I thought I would share it with you.

A man died…

When he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.

Dialog between God and Dead Man:

God: Alright son, it’s time to go

Man: So soon? I had a lot of plans…

God: I am sorry but, it’s time to go

Man: What do you have in that suitcase?

God: Your belongings

Man: My belongings? You mean my things… Clothes… money…

God: Those things were never yours, they belong to the Earth

Man: Is it my memories?

God: No. They belong to Time

Man: Is it my talent?

God: No. They belong to Circumstance

Man: Is it my friends and family?

God: No son. They belong to the Path you travelled

Man: Is it my wife and children?

God: No. they belong to your Heart

Man: Then it must be my body

God: No No… It belongs to Dust

Man: Then surely it must be my Soul!

God: You are sadly mistaken son. Your Soul belongs to me.

Man with tears in his eyes and full of fear took the suitcase from the God’s hand and opened it…


With heartbroken and tears down his cheek he asks God…

Man: I never owned anything?

God: That’s Right. You never owned anything.

Man: Then? What was mine?

God: Your MOMENTS. Every moment you lived was yours.

Worldwide Blog Action Day: Inequality

Blog Action Day 2014My blog is two days “late” this week because I’m participating in Blog Action Day, as always. This year’s theme is Inequality: women and girls, anyone?


Malala Yousafzai won half the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014. Inequality? You betcha.

The truth is that until women and girls not longer need to intone the word inequality about ANYTHING, the world will not know peace because it cannot.

We’re all first-class citizens of the planet. All. No exceptions.
