How's the Weather in Your Life

This article was borne out of my dealing with my own issues and looking at clouds. It was also borne out of a theory my son had toyed with concerning the weather.

This article is not intended to be religious or political in nature. Simply human.

This is just a thought. We are all the children of Earth, like it or not. We are sensitive to the moon, the sun, and the Earth. The Weather and Climate are also involved with mankind. I have noticed what seems to be a relationship between the stability of human interaction at a global scale and nature. When war and civil unrest is on the increase and destruction is brought upon the Earth, the Earth seems to respond in kind with it's own brand of destruction such as hurricanes or tsunamis.

The Moon has an influence over things on earth such as ocean tides and horseshoe crabs. Many claim that human behavior is also influenced by the moon. It has been demonstrated that every eleven years the Sun has a major solar storm which coincides with flu epidemics on Earth. So it is not too difficult to believe at times that our behavior in this world may influence the planet we live upon.

Whatsoever things we loose upon the Earth may be loosed upon us in like manner.

How does this apply to us in our own lives? Whatsoever is loosed in your house will dwell in your house; And whatever dwells in your house influences your house and the lives of those within it. Clean it out. Get rid of all the negative or bad things in your house and make your home what you want it to be.

If you are greedy the world will be greedy toward you. If you want it all and give nothing, the world will act in kind and you will receive nothing.

If you are angry or hateful, the world will respond to that also. You will be avoided by calm, kind people and you will attract angry and hateful things. Peaceful people are not attracted to negative energy.

Contempt breeds contempt. Love attracts love. If you love people then people will love you. Enough said about that.

My point? Like attracts like. Opposites do not attract. Magnets attract magnets. That thing about poles is simply the magnets aligning themselves to accommodate the magnetic field. It's about harmony, not opposite poles attracting one another.

Those things we want are like bubbles in the air. Grasp at them and the air current from your hand will wisp them away. But watch their path and place your hand where they will land. They will light in your palm every time. But don't clench your fist or you may still lose them. This is true of everything, love, money, security, you name it. Be calm. Be quiet. Be at the right place in your mind and spirit.

All good things come to those who wait as long as those who wait arrange their life to accept good things. The bubble of your desires will never survive the hurricanes of an angry or violent home and can neither enter or abide therein. This is where the harmony comes in. Align your house with the things you desire. Creative the environment that reflects what you want from life. Be sure that what you say you want is actually what you want.

If someone plays angry music in your house tell them to use headphones or else just turn it off. Sound is as much a part of your environment as anything. Shouting, cursing, complaining or just plain grumbling should not be a part of your everyday environment. By the way, if you are the source, stop it, for your own good.

World peace does not begin in Washington or the church. It begins in the heart of the individual. We may never have world peace because of the human condition. If America is truly a superpower than what better place to start than here. If everyone works toward peace in their own homes and lives it has to change something. If everyone shares that peace with others it may spread. Imagine if America became a country of peace and caring. That would change the world.

My son once told me that the thought had crossed his mind that people created the weather. I think he was right.

What a blessing it is to always have a positive attitude and a huge smile every day! I am constantly telling people that it is one of my birth defects, and they do not have too worry about it being contagious! I am quite sure that most people would not know how to deal with always having a smile, let alone the attitude to go along with it!

Think for a minute, about the consequences of having most of the people you come into contact with every day being upbeat and positive! Whew, the increased productivity and peaceful atmosphere would almost be too much to take. What would we possibly do with all of that extra time we have created as a result of meeting all of our goals in a very timely fashion? Can you imagine the surplus energy that would also exist? What could we possibly use this new resource for, all of the extra time and energy, that would make sense?

Oh no! What would all of the drama-needy people do now? I can not even begin to understand an environment where every one had only positive things to talk about! They were supportive and understanding! They figured out how to wash off that selfish tatoo that so many were either born with or managed to acquire at a very young age. The gossip meter would almost fail to even register anymore. The topic of conversation would no longer start with the ever popular have you heard about so and so! Talk about total confusion!

Well, welcome to my world! Every day is a great day! I am constantly accused of smiling too much and being in a good mood way too often! I do not worry about things I cannot control. I process information mentally from a win-win perspective. Meaning, it is never an option to fail or suffer a bad outcome. Rather, it is always going to be a good result, it is just a matter of how good it will be! I have always enjoyed seeing people smile and enjoy themselves, most times in spite of themselves. I have always simply enjoyed having the opportunity to make a difference! A positive, supportive and mutually beneficial difference.

The next time you feel that nagging frown coming on, the negative attitude or outlook, or just having another mundane day, change the channel to the attitude channel! Save the negative energy and spread some positive energy around! Share a smile, a laugh, a supportive idea or recommendation! See how much more relaxed and productive your day is. Enjoy each and every day and live them with a positive and happy purpose. Live, laugh and love!

Sizing Your Walking Stick

If you are thinking about buying one or two walking sticks, you need to consider a lot of things. Such as, what type of stick should you get, since there are many to choose from, and what should the size of it, or the sticks, be? The size of a walking apparatus matters. The size determines how easy the stick, or sticks, are to use. How to size a walking can, or sticks, really depends on your height and what is most comfortable for you. You can find the appropriate size for you by looking at a variety of items and trying out different heights till you find one that is comfortable for you. Once you find the appropriate size for your heights and needs, it is a good idea to look for canes at the appropriate size for you until you find the items that you like the most and that work with your budget.

Some walking sticks are adjustable which can be great for anybody who will want to change the height of their stick, or sticks, for different types of hikes and walks. Having the option to change the height of the sticks can be convenient in different environments. Also, adjustable canes are good for anybody who cannot find a store that sells walking items in their area and does not have the chance to try out different sticks, and therefore needs to order walking sticks online. Adjustable sticks have a lot of perks, but some are not reliable and can have problems. Some issues you can get with adjustable walking sticks include unreliable locks that let the sticks change size while you are walking, and they can be heavier than normal canes and rods. If you want adjustable walking sticks, you should look for reviews and ratings for different sticks so you can find which models have reliable locks and are easy to use.
