Next New Beginnings - September 27- 30, 2007

 I wish you enough...

Presented by Jim Dubel, D.C.

Recently I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.

Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said, "I love you and I wish you enough".

The daughter replied, " Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom".

They kissed and the daughter left. The mother walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see she wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking, "Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?".

"Yes, I have," I replied. "Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?".

"I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is - the next trip back will be for my funeral," she said.

"When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough'. May I ask what it means?".

She began to smile. "It's a wish which has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone". She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail and she smiled even more. "When we said , 'I wish you enough', we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them". Then turning toward me, she shared the following as if she were reciting it from memory.

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

She then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them but then an entire life to forget them.


TAKE TIME TO LIVE.....

To all my friends and loved ones,
All My Love, Loyalty and Friendship..and I WISH YOU ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!

Honoring My "Inner Kermit"

Michelle A. Morin

I’ve just come in the house from hanging a basket full of laundry on the line to dry. As I was out in the glorious sunshine, listening to the birds, Thanking Creator for the light breeze that uplifts me and brings that "May Freshness" to my mish mosh of towels and undies, I think of the many years of history this backyard and my laundry have together. And I smile to myself, my heart breaking into song, thinking "If only Kermit were alive now!! Because it’s getting easier and easier Being Green!!!"

This walk through the past is a pinball game of thoughts -- I remember the young guy ringing my groceries at Whole Foods a couple weeks ago, not more than 21 or 22 years old, he made a comment on how "cool it was" that my canvas bags were beginning to wear to a frazzle. "These Bags??!!" I said, "I’ve been carrying these same canvas bags since 1984!!"1984, wow!!! I never thought about it before. These are the bags I bought while I was a senior in high school. The same bags I carried on my cross country drives. They’ve carried groceries and such all over New England, but also down to Tennessee, all across the mid-west and the Rockies. What a story these bags could tell!

What are the principles, philosophies and integrity that gives us the commitment to "be green", or for that matter, compassionate, loving, joyous peace-makers living a life from our personal truth??? What are the deeper roots of "Being Green" for a teenager living in suburbia, in a time and a place where it was never the common calling of my friends and neighbors to do the same. Western Massachusetts, this little corner of the world outside of Springfield, back in the 70's and early 80's was an awesome place to learn and to grow. Enough diversity to feel connected to the greater human family, enough community to know that we were supported and safe. And yet I don’t recall too many clotheslines by 1980. Now, more than 25 years and a couple lifetimes of experience later, I watch with guarded fascination as the world becomes a greener place. From the cars we buy to the organic produce at the market, I wonder how much is integrity and authenticity and how much is fashion?? Or, perhaps "doing the right thing" because someone else told us that’s what we’re to do??!! The spirit being in me likes to give everyone a chance to prove the intermittent cynic wrong now and then. And yet the healing professional and teacher in me sees, day after day, many people so disconnected from their Authentic Selves that they’re not even sure that core be-ing exists. Perhaps I was luckier than most, I was blessed to have mentors in my life, people who had lived and experienced, the good and the bad, the colorful and the black-and-white, and they were willing and eager to share their insights with me. Perhaps it was something inside of me, some Gemini-curiosity that was not easily squelched. Perhaps it’s even more simple than that, simple, not easy – I believe we each have that inner explorer and pioneer just waiting to explode into a new way of being. Isn’t there, in each of us, a longing for tradition mixed with a desire to "blow the doors off" of what was and cut ourselves a new path!!?? And perhaps it’s this slightly muffled pile of embers that needs to take a deep breath and set itself free!!! Perhaps that’s the most Authentic Self, the most Authentic Walk that our world is longing to experience from each of us!! There is a great quote I heard a week or so ago from Jack Kerouac, "Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

As I explore this place of being "old green" in a newly birthed green place – this time of walking the walk from an authentic, aligned to source, place of inner knowing – this time of more light and more fun, more challenge and more complexity than I could have ever imagined – I am beginning to see more and more the possibility that exists if we would but take the words of our greatest mentors and teachers to heart, and find the place of commonality with our own inner truth and inner light. That place of knowing that you know that you know that you know!! For me, this forty-something woman with more and more ever-greening parts, I’ll call on the wisdom of Bucky Fuller..."Sometimes I think we’re alone. Sometimes I think we’re not. In either case, the thought is staggering.""Find what is needed and wanted and go do it." "Give up what you have been doing and go completely toward the path of your heart." These are the words that resonate with my truth, in this moment in time – what rings true for you?? Right now?? Without fear of being right or wrong?? With Joy and Possibility, from your deepest, most Authentic Self?? Are you open to it, and more importantly, are you willing to live a life that shows it??!! Are you willing to be whatever color is calling to you – Green or not – and honor the place of inner truth just itching to be set free??!!

It’s time for me to go hang the next load of laundry...
