Do your eyes see what your heart feels?

Roller coasters are such a wild ride. Recently I had a conversation with some one regarding living our life within God's will. I told him that it is not my job to build the roller coaster, it's my job to ride it. I am to endure the ups and downs, the twists and turns, the fun times and the scary times.

Have you ever closed your eyes while you whipped around a roller coaster track? Was the experience different? We often times rely on our vision, and only our vision to decipher all of life's rigors. It is my heart that believes, dreams, and cares. My heart knows of great potential. We hear words like " I love you", or " I care about you", but it is the micro emotions we see displayed in pepole's body language that we really feel deep inside of our hearts! Can we see the tones that pierce the toughest forms of emotional stability? Can we see what our hearts feel?

There comes a time, I think, as we seek transcendence where we yearn for a deeper connection with other souls. When this time comes, will we be able to allow our eyes to see what our heart feels? Will we be able to look deep into another set of eyes and see what their heart is feeling? Will we be able to use words, tones to inspire greatness? Will our micro expressions portray our care and belief?

I think it is here in this bizarre place of allowing our hearts to see and our eyes to feel where we begin to understand what it is to love the unlovable, to touch the untouchable, to believe in the unbelievable. My soul yearns for the day when we can care beyond what our eyes see, and believe in what our hearts know to be. Maybe then we can enjoy the crazy roller coaster called life, and stop trying to build it, or control it!

Massaging a quote

I was recently reminded of a quote that goes like this: "Show me your friends, and I will show you who you are". I like that quote, but as I wrestled with its true value, I decided to change it up a little to fit my arena more. Here is what I came up with;

"Show me your friends, and they will show me who you think you are."

Our friends, or those how we associate with tend to be a telling sign about our internal self concept, our sum of our own value. The old saying " Birds of a feather flock together" become much more than just a saying. Am I worthy to hang out with smart people? Or, I am not that smart so I will hang out with not so smart people just like me.

Some, may be even all, of our choices are signs of our internal definition of our value and worth. But what happens when we thrust this sum of self concept into a state of disequilibrium? What happens when we start to hang with others not "like" us?

As we grow, intrinsically and extrinsically , should our friendships change as well? If I can step back from seeking validation from those I perceive as just like me, create my own self worth, does this change who or how I view friendships? I think it changes and should change. I think that by forcing myself into what I first perceived as zones of social discomfort and grow from the experiences my social network and friendships are bound to constant change.

Thoughts?

God Bless our Troops

Warning

The Video below is not for the feint of heart. It may be very hard to watch for some. "They" stand on a line. We often do not like them when they do their job, and we wonder why they are not nicer to us? Here is a small peek into their world!

Scroll down to the bottom of the blog and click on the pause button of the music player so you can hear the audio of the video clip.

May God bless them as they watch over us and our families!!!
