What Would You Say To Your 20-Year-Old Self?

What Would You Say To Your 20-Year-Old Self?

Commented Nov 7, 2012 at 12:34:18 in Fifty

“1.True validation comes from within. Know that you are amazing and stop looking for approval from others.

2. When you have a choice always choose faith over fear. Faith will bring you peace. Fear will bring you pain and suffering.

3. Find something to be grateful for every day. Life is a blessing and should be appreciated no matter what your circumstances are.

4. Practice forgiveness with everyone. Sometimes it is very challenging but it will lighten your load.”

The Politics of Struggle vs. Snuggle

Commented Jul 11, 2012 at 17:26:05 in Politics

“Thank you so much for this excellent article. Of course, you are right. It is a universal principal that positive energy will attract more positive energy. All it takes is one politician making the conscious choice to cooperate and collaborate with another. This has the potential to create more cooperation. Then if the media makes a responsible choice to share this information, slowly but surely change will occur. It is such a simple concept yet requires individuals who have evolved to a place where they can put the greater good before their own good. In the meantime, articles like this can be the pilot light that helps to ignite the flame of cooperation and compassion in human kind.”

The Kids Are All Right: Gay Parents Raising Children

Commented May 23, 2012 at 14:25:57 in Parents

“It has been my experience as a Child and Family Therapist working in the foster care system as well as raising a boy with minimal contact with dad, that significant male role models can help fill in the parenting gaps. I have provided mental health services for gay parents with boys and I have seen some amazing successes. In addition, I have seen teachers, school principals, coaches, and other high quality males be inspirational others for boys without dads. That is why is it so important to provide funding for evidence-based mentoring programs. It truly does take a village to raise a child and in my experience, it doesn't seem to matter if the role model is biological or not. Boys need to have the opportunity to see how high functioning male adults effectively communicate, manage anger and frustration, and practice social skills. Of course, girls also have these same needs with high quality female mentors. We must all come together as a society to help our children work towards empowerment and achieve a high quality of life.”

“In my 37 years of teaching many single moms wanted their kids to be in my class. I was a very physically affectionate teacher till the last few years when pedophiliaphobia became the rule of the land.”

“I think you are absolutely correct about the need for high quality role models

I have found with my generation (mid 30s) so many grew up either without fathers or with minimal contact with their fathers. I have found this to affect males and females in different ways.

With the males I know, they often struggle with how exactly to be a good husband and good father because they just didn't grow up with an example. They're not always sure what to do they just know they want to be nothing like their fathers

It does truly take a village”

“I think children of all genders need to see strong role models from all genders. They need to have images of who they could be, who they could love, who they respect as they grow. I don't think that's in doubt. But this idea that they must be PARENTED by those role models is false.”

Being an Original in a Copycat World Is Easier Than You Think

Commented Feb 27, 2012 at 13:12:37 in Healthy Living

“The small self constantly tells us that we need to copy others to achieve greater self worth. We strive and strive to be like others believing that this will bring us success. The Higher Self reminds us that this life is really about who we are and why we are here. We must let our Essence shine through especially during those challenging times when the Ego tells us that we are not good enough. We are all better than we think. Thanks Dennis for the important reminder that we must honor our Divine goodness.”

“I saw you at the Troubadour around 1971 and have followed you ever since. You were an inspiration back then and continue to be so now. I am thrilled to hear that you are reinventing yourself. During these times of radical change, many of us are called to reinvent ourselves. We must come together in Unity to support each other. Know that you are loved by so many because you allow Spirit to work through you. Many blessings to you Kenny!”

“x2. One of my all time faves. The music of Kenny Loggins has been an inspiration to me in my own creative work. Keep at it, Sir! Keep in the flow of the many mulch-faceted levels of the Cosmos. That is what being here on Earth in this time and place of great potential transformation is all about. Creative artists sense what has been lost in our individual AND collective souls (the loss right now on this tiny planet of lost children is catastrophic!) and try to create what is needed to sustain us and keep us going.”

Where Two Or More Are Gathered: Is There Hidden Power in Having a Prayer Partner?

Commented Feb 20, 2012 at 13:37:15 in Religion

“I have had a prayer partner for many years. I call this person my best friend. Numerous times she has held the "High Watch" for me when I have been caught up in the chaos of life. She frequently reminds me that there is much power in prayer. We have lived miles apart for a long time, yet our phone conversations are spiritually nourishing. Just like the fragile snowflakes, when we stick together, we are uplifted to a Sacred place of loving kindness, Thank you Dennis for your inspiration and wisdom. The planet needs your guidance now more then ever!”

“Prayer will not save this planet or the people on it. We have an energy downturn happening, caused by human greed and irresponsibility. You can sit on the fence and pray all you like but it won't change anything. We need people who are reasonable human beings to help our brothers and sisters not dreamers.”

“Again, like I said in my other comment, it's all about indoctrination and validating each other's delusions.”
