What is seen

“What do you see, my human?”

“The future.”

“That is what you think you see, Greg. What do you see?”

“A storm coming.”

“Perhaps, but you do not know for sure. What do you see?”

Silence…

“I see the dog of me peacefully looking at the beauty surrounding you and I.”

Silence of words with sounds of seagulls laughing and Lucky breathing softly…

“In this moment, Greg…that is all there is, yes?”

“Thank you.”

Review: Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box

Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box
Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box by Arbinger Institute
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I began reading “Leadership and Self-Deception” because I am on a leadership track where I work full time, thinking this book would help me in my endeavor. As I read the first few pages, I realized the same thing was happening to me that happened when I read, The Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict…awareness of how I am with others and being with them as a fellow human.

I do not wish to give anything away, but I will say this: “getting out of the box” is not what most people think of when you hear the cliche…there is a higher meaning contained within the pages, so please do not let the title throw you as it did me. This book sat on my shelf for 7 months before I picked it up to read and I read it in one sitting.

The book is not just for business folks wishing to succeed and/or progress up a ladder. The pages inspired me to think about all humans I come into contact with even if I do not know them. I took a walk with my dog after finishing. I tested what I had learned with strangers and a wonderful thing happened. Compassion.

Yes, this read will help me progress at work and I will be taking a chance by giving the book to my boss today, who I highly respect as a leader.

I highly recommend “Leadership and Self-Deception” for all humans who face challenges with other humans, for this short and easy read can create Peace whenever humans come together…something we all do every day unless you are a hermit.

Sensationalism in the Media…oh, the webs they weave…yuk.

“The First Ever Aerial Footage of A Tribe That No One Knew Existed”

I want to believe that the author of the short article about this video has a deep desire to help keep the freedom of fellow humans to choose their own future, which by his efforts will help keep us all free to choose…

yet…

Sensationalism in the Media…yuk.

The title given this video by a Media outlet is wrong and takes away from what the author of the video, Survivor International, was trying to portray with an important message…read the comments by those who read the above title and article…the quickness with which fellow humans judge is amazing.

click here to read the article by Superstar Magazine…scroll down to read the comments

“But Greg, it’s just a title.  Why get so worked up over something so simple?”

Watch and listen to the video if you have time and you will see this…

The governments of Brazil and Peru want to deny the existence of this and other tribes in order to make it easier for the governments of those wonderful Countries to grant logging rights to companies which will do two things; 1) displace native humans who have lived there for thousands of years and mow down un-touched forests which will affect the oxygen we all take for granted which will contribute to global climate change.

If you watch the video, Survival International states clearly that many people have known about the tribe and others in the area for over 20 years.  

Tribes from neighboring Peru which have already been displaced from illegal logging in Peru are moving over into Brazil because they have no place else to go.  By creating the video, Survivor International is trying help preserve the freedom of fellow humans and help save them from the sometimes, repetitive and destructive by-products of “Civilization”.  Survivor International never states that “no one knew existed.”

So yes, of course they are interacting with other humans.

The point is not that “no one knew they existed“…the point is:the governments of Brazil and Peru knowingly deny the existence of this and other tribes because of money they will get from logging and mining companies who will systematically eliminate, through genocidal actions, the tribes which they deny exist“.

This is a classic example of money being more important than humans and Media outlets sensationalizing a topic to the point that a message gets twisted into something that is not.

There are fellow humans out there in the world beyond the comfort of our civilized homes who are in danger of destruction…

follow your heart to the their heart…

feel them…

and walk perhaps in their feet for a few moments even if they are carrying an object which you deem to be civilized.

This is the video on Survivor International’s YouTube site with a title that makes more sense…

Ψ

I, for one…

have been the subject of such Sensationalism…

a message of Faith, Struggle and Hope through Improvising, Adapting and Overcoming twisted into a topic in order to deliver a negative message…

Fear.

FIRST ON 3: Frucci calling it quits; Coming home Thursday

Ψ

Upon reflection of the past which was brought forward in my mind by something which is passionate in my Soul…

I return to the present moment in Flow…

I see the look in my dog’s eyes…

I am now locked back into Me on a beautiful day…

Lucky says with his heart, “Take me for a walk please…I want to chase some shadows away.”

A smile in repose I feel upon my face…

A longing in my Heart for those who are about to suffer needlessly…

I send the Light from within and know what is important in the Life I live…

move on…

move forward…

and fly into the Spring.

What we hear with our Souls

Your Voice with a capitol “V” is more than something which you may hear…

for only what you hear with your ears is a small “v”…

the Voice encompasses all communication through feeling, prompting, a whisper and however else you are spoken to into your soul…

it will always be the first communication…

all else which follows will be your mind arguing and second guessing what you already know to be True.
