This story is (by far) the best definition for "Grace" that I have ever come across. ThankRead More you Pam Bell for sharing this Wisdom and Insights. In my 30 years of writing about "emotions" its not so much that people are forgetting, but rather they were never taught to appreciate, to be Grateful, or to see Grace as within their own grasp or making.

Thanks Tim! I agree with your insight as well....we (our society) have cultivated such a CapitalistRead More environment where people are way too focused on "getting" and "becoming" rather than "being" and "appreciating." Sad really but hopefully, with less wealth and opportunity (unfortunate it takes this) people's values will shift. I see it already in my step-children and in the young people I know. They see the futility in a life spent chasing after wealth and self indulgence. They are more practical, appreciate more simple things and seem to have more grounded expectations....let's hope so anyway!Their future and opportunities will not be as easy as it was for my generation but perhaps more meaningful. Cheers.

Thank you Pam! Although I do appreciate what technology does in our lives; we have become tooRead More reliant on the the ever increasing ways that it keeps us from showing up as our real selves in face to face human encounter. How can Facebook "friends" really "know" us from our posts? They can know something about our beliefs, political positions, actions that we share, or causes that we support. But we are so much more than those things. Knowing someone involves experiencing them face to face in times of joy, stress, and personal challanges. Our words on a computer are only one dimension of who we are.

Thank you Sandy. You're right on! It will take the conscious minded of us to carry the flag and toRead More teach and remind others to step away from their distractions and pay attention to their life. I see it as an infinite responsibility.....I think it will only get harder. Especially for the younger generations who have integrated technology into every aspect of their social encounters. Please make a personal commitment to showing others the way back!
