MADE MORE THAN MONEY

Oh so many flowers and not enough time to smell them? How about we don't want to spend our time smelling but instead hurry along to answer the call of our ambition or goal thinking that the sooner we get there the quicker our return can come. This is not an uncommon thought but an often used one so I ask you...why then have flowers that smell so good and demand up-close and personal visits?

MULTI-TASKING

I was in Trader Jo shopping and you have to pass by the flower section on the way in. I have passed the display many times and so did others if you observe but today I paused, came to the moment, noticed the many different arrangements and then leaned in to smell what caught my attention

THEY SPEAK 

What you realize without being told is they are alive and have managed to summon you to them first by how beautiful they are and when approached they share their unique scents and designs. When put together with other plants they form a chorus of such silent beauty. They require nothing more than recognition

WHERE WERE YOU?

How patient they are to wait and wait until noticed to be appreciated. Couple of things came to mind. 1. They were always there and 2. What was so important as to cause one to ignore, dismiss or refuse them? What if you can have both of what you are doing and them? Its doable. So what is the real lesson here?

THE JOURNEY

If one can appreciate waking up, being welcomed into another day (a mystery of itself) & having so much to explore that is all designed to stimulate, feedback & compliment then the approach to the moment must be evaluated to be included more often instead of reducing it to a blur on the way to wherever-whatever

ITS NOT JUST FLOWERS EITHER

How much more beauty found in diversity surrounds us wanting to please, greet, compliment and join if only we would allow it. That means we would have to pause and all that is there would make itself known. Interesting to note that we will still carry out our commitments, assignments & responsibilities as well

WAS ANYTHING PUT HERE TO BE IGNORED?

That makes no sense at all. If we are to ignore things perhaps it serves no high purpose so why put it here? The nuances of life will answer that question quite easily. You see its called symbiotic relationships which are the intentional interacting of all things in close proximity and on the grander scales as well for purposes.

FOCUS ON ANYTHING

Give attention to anything and it becomes your world and a world unto itself. A blade of grass is not just a sentence but a phenomenon when focus is granted unto it. It does so much but of itself is just a part of the grand scheme of things yet so much and so many others rely on it. Add infinitum subjects to this concept

HAVE IT ALL CONCEPT

We have come up with a set of wants that demand and pretty much exclude all other things. When a person decides to do anything ambitious, that energy takes the form of a laser beam which is a beam of light that is concentrated and directed with intense, quick and accurate precisions. However, we exclude anything outside of it. All other things are put on hold but why? Consider another approach...

ACCIDENTS or HAPPENSTANCE?

Randomness is a fascinating dynamic when viewed or explored using the deliberation approach or more commonly known as: "this was meant to be" discovery. Chaos or order? Hindsight which has visited with anyone of age testifies to what could have or should have or not been done for better outcome. Consider...

YOUR NOW BECKONS

If one enters into their moment & note that everyone not only has their own custom moment that they can enter in anytime they will find what is waiting for them to trigger which will lead to outcomes so favorable that hindsight is not to be seen, heard or entertained. You are receiving your due now & collecting it is wise

IMAGINE THIS (story-time)

A man after searching for some time finds a gold mine out in the middle of no-where and starts to mine it while dreaming of what is to come as he works day and night digging deeper and deeper. As the dream of wealth intensifies, so does the desire to have more gold making that person work harder. Then this happens

TIME PASSES

The man is now into what he is doing but so is what he is doing is into the man. He fears the mine and his wealth being discovered, taken or not realized and spends more time protecting, guarding and hiding his discovery without realizing that he is not enjoying the discovery or the fruits thereof. All this wealth but...

YOU NEED LIFE TO ENJOY IT

What if you gained and mined every ounce of gold over your lifetime and it cost you your lifetime? What a cruel ending to a beautiful beginning. It is very easy to sink in your think and to drown in your dreams. What do we learn then? Let's list a few so as to stimulate gratitude/appreciation juices as intended

1. You are here! Here is where it all starts and ends and awaits. We have but to step into it and begin

2. We are fully equipped to utilize the gifts of life. Time, health, money and desires are waiting to serve you

3. There is such an abundance making you realize there is enough for all. That means your fellow like kind

4. It is given but not for the asking. It is all a gift with no conditions except to be used correctly

ANY CONTAINER THAT IS FULL

The next step for any container or vessel when full and stored is to be summoned and emptied. We store and hold things until we can spend/consume them for our sakes or for the sake of others. We are to gather & use with the intent of letting it go & a strange & predictable thing happens. Our supplies replenish at some point

WHAT WE HAVE IN THE END

If we have interacted, explored, discovered and adventured as intended and included the many subjects of value on the way then we also have ingested and partaken of deep satisfaction, purpose, reward and contentment which cannot be bought but attained from a character-driven life. Exit with your good character and you will have been able to visit with the title of this post: I MADE MORE THAN MONEY

Richie- you made an excellent point about the living things around us that we often pay no attention to. It costs us nothing to stop and enjoy a beautiful flower or plant or an evening sunset and our rewards are immeasurable.

Kathy Streib ...every once in a while, I ask: Can anyone remember anything about a spent $10 bill ages ago? Its purpose came and went. What do we learn? There are ever-lasting qualities & dynamics begging us to join/notice them...we should do so. Plants, animals & insects do not have this capacity. Mankind does....

Good morning Richie Alan Naggar ,

What a wonderful post and so glad Kathy Streib featured it in her "Ah-ha" moments for the day. It's especially poignant for me right now after my Geno passed and the wonderful out poring of what people loved about him. He was bigger than life, trusted, respected, revered for his advice, made everyone feel special with his wit, knowledge and love of his family. He was a force to be reckoned with in real estate and is truly missed by so many..what a wonderful legacy he left!

Not a shallow thought in this post. Lol. It's always a treat to be reminded of the things in life that really matter.  You are so good at it, Richie. Today, I'm making a pot of clam chowder for the crew, I cannot wait to savor the aromas as it simmers. Gifts abound.  D
