Have fun, share pain, show compassion

Tuesday, August 19, 2014: Yesterday's playful childlike mood continues today.... and certainly a little playfulness can brighten everyone's day and make anything more fun. But underlying the sky's message of playfulness is a serious intent... a call to compassion and love.

Though there may seem to be a disparity between seriousness and light hearted childlike playfulness... there are times when serious intent can inspire lighthearted playfulness that says I feel your pain. And there are those who cover their pain with a lighthearted playfulness that makes the world a better place.

Almost daily you can see the sky's message playing out in the news. And... Last week, even against the back ground of war and mayhem, the world watched a myriad of videos that made them laugh even as tears flowed down their cheeks and we witnessed the outpouring of love and empathy for Robin Williams, a comedic genius who was as empathetic and compassionate as he was playful.

Then that serious, but still playful, outpouring of love for Williams was followed the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge". This "Challenge" was an inspired and playful symbolic sharing of the pain of all those that suffer with Lou Gehrig's disease. Both the outpouring of love and empathy for the brilliantly funny... brilliantly serious.... Robin Williams and the playful goodhearted fun of "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" are a perfect reflection of fun coupled with tears of empathy and compassion for others.

Today, allow yourself to step into the shoes of others and experience the richness of the joy and suffering of each person you meet. Then smile, brighten someone's day and remember, you are never alone in either your joy or your deepest suffering.

Today's Quote

We were talking-about the space between us all
And the people-who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth-then it's far too late-when they pass away.
We were talking-about the love we all could share-when we find it
To try our best to hold it there-with our love
With our love-we could save the world-if they only knew.

Try to realize it's all within yourself
No-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small,
And life flows within you and without you.

We were talking-about the love that's gone so cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul-
They don't know-they can't see-are you one of them?

When you've seen beyond yourself-then you may find, peace of mind,
Is waiting there-
And the time will come when you see
we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you.

Within You Without You ~ Written by Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison
