The Classic Pamela Positive: Celebrate True Wealth

 

Wealth is a state of mind and life. We tend to associate poverty with money. But poverty can be mental, emotional or Spiritual Poverty. I am often struck by this in my travel and volunteering in developing nations. Often, the divorce rates are low. Families not only stay together, but also spend time together. They gather food from the fields together, cook together and share meals together.

Contrast us: 15 minute family dinners if we are lucky. Fast-food and food distanced from its natural base. We eat alone; we eat in our cars. Divorces are easier to get, and in our mind it can be easier to allow those thoughts in as a possibility, rather than work through critical issues. So we lose the connection to family. We lose the connection to the local farm. We can lose the connection to long-term commitment.

We lose our greatest asset in natural wealth: relationships. Relationships with ourselves, our families, the earth. This wealth creates happy, balanced, productive, lower stress lifestyles, because we are connected in the way we are meant to be.

Further, we often pass by our heritage and where we come from. In many emerging nations, and especially in the continent of Africa, we see tribes value their connection to their heritage as primary importance even above their nationality. There is a deep-rooted connection to rituals and history which keeps people grounded in who they are, and the deeper, long-term meaning of being a part of a larger community in their lives.

Poverty is about money, at times. It has to be addressed as people should have the opportunity to live productive lives and make choices about what they would like to devote their lives to. Poverty is also about our well-being. Often when we get beyond “money poverty,” we forget “well-being poverty,” and get trapped in a go-go-go consumer culture.

I hope we can celebrate the healthy wealth that is accessible to us all in positive, committed relationships with ourselves, one another, our families, our earth, our communities and our heritage. How wonderful this is available to us all.

The Classic Pamela Positive: What Love Is

 

What Love Is

It’s the warmth of your eyes.

It’s the feeling in your heart.

It’s the slowing down to care.

It’s connecting.

 

It’s giving.

 

And you can do it right now. Go reach out to someone and give them your love.

 

Love Today,

 

Pamela

I Am Here To Establish Connections Of Love.

I Am Here To Establish Connections Of Love.
– Grey T. Full

Really, that’s all we are here to do.

You think it’s to get this major priority done.

To run that errand!

Make dinner

or make that meeting happen!

But isn’t it really to love?

Otherwise, what is the point to “do” all these things, if you don’t connect with love to each person, and each activity?

That’s yours and my grand call in life.

Connect with Love now 🙂

– Pamela

Purpose in Life — I am Here to Establish Connections of Love

“I am here to establish connections of love. To celebrate all affection; to raise others up in a spiritual, boundless way.”

This was a sweet journal entry at a very young age.  It aspires to just give selflessly, overflowing with goodness.  I look back on it fondly, to think how I can:

Create a connection based on love, no matter who I meet today

Celebrate any way I see affection, kindness, compassion

Lift others up spiritually, encouraging them.

Please join me today living a life of love!
