"What I Know for Sure"


Beautiful nature does not have a problem with transformation.  Day transforms into night and then into day again.  One season changes into the next then into the next.  People have a much harder time changing.  We talk about changing for the better but sometimes do little to make that change.  There are so many ways that we can better ourselves.  I can name a few......eating healthier, working out (even if you start with small steps like marching in place or turning on the radio and dancing),  finding enjoyment in reading books,  taking a walk in your neighborhood and looking around at all the beauty, reaching out to a person in need, donating clothing to a charity, etc.
It is important to be the best that we can be.  Old Japanese proverb - "Fall down 7 times - get up 8".  If there are issues in the way of our changing then we have to address them.  We cannot leave things to fester and grow.  As Oprah states: "Rocks unattended turn into mounds, and then mountains".  We cannot ignore problems.  Even if we take baby steps and  chip away little by little we will make progress.  Reaching your potential is important.  We can do wonderful things!  "I'm talking about the real deal" says Oprah.  "Whose life did you touch?"   " This I know for sure is what matters.  For me, it's the only goal worth aiming for: a transformation of consciousness that allows me to know that I am no better or worse than any other being.  That I simply am."  Yes we all have it within us to reach out and better ourselves.  If we do fall down we must get up and try, try, try again.  Never give up!!!!!
