Remy's other writings

  What is your story?

  What have you learned?
  What is the earth itself trying to tell us about how we live?

  What are the roots of our cultures, our conflicts?

  What is the role of compassion in history?

  What can you teach the rest of us from what you have learned?

  We can't blame what is happening today on anyone but all of us living today. We may have to deal with what we have been served, but HOW we deal with it is of the utmost importance. We may feel appalled by the pyramids of skulls left by Genghis Khan, by Aztec sacrifices, but they pale in the glaring light of hindsight of the twentieth century.

  What will you make the twenty-first?

  You have a voice, a pen, a keyboard.

  What is your dream for your children, your grandchildren, and theirs?

  And the biggest question: How can you bring that dream to fruition?

  Today, as they say, is the first day of the rest of your life. I am  not asking you how you will spend it; I am asking you what you will make of it.

  In the gnostic Gospel of Thomas, Jesus says:

    "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth  will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

  Odd thing that I noticed: if you make a typo with the word "destroy" it can come out to "destory." Do you want to be de-storied?

  Whatever your faith you are asked to be all you can be in service.

  Each of us, like every snowflake, like every flower is unique. What happens to the world if you do not bring forth your unique gift, your unique service?

   So perhaps we should all ask ourselves today; what exactly is my unique gift, what exactly is my story, and how can I bring it forth?

   How can I make and leave some history that shows who I am and what I stand for?

   Here are some places to start:

Center for Conscious Evolution.

Global Renaissance Alliance.

   love and peace,
