Hello, Hello, Hello!!!! I have no clue why I’m starting this weeks’ blog this way, but there you have it. Week sixteen has been a wonderful, challenging, fun-filled, trying, fulfilling, difficult, and inspiring week for me…
Some of the trying moments involve everything up to and including loss of life, while one of the main reasons for the happy moments revolve around the fact our entire Master Key, Mastermind Alliance has been concentrating on both observing and contributing to kindnesses unfolding in the world around us.
While it seems that much of our world is in turmoil, and that social media is preoccupied with people’s differences and feeds (thrives?) on disharmony, there is a LOT of goodness surrounding us every single day and all we have to do is take a few moments out of our day to notice it. Our Alliance has actually been posting these kindnesses on a special internal site, and – in just a few days – have tabulated THOUSANDS of kindnesses noted from all around the world.
This next bit of information may seem a little out of context at first glance, but a side-note in a show I watched on Netflix last night stopped me in my tracks and had my head bobbing up and down to a concept I had never thought of before.
It seems there are about 600,000 Germans registered in more than 300 private nudist clubs across the country, and one contributor sited an interesting reasoning for the “Free Body Culture” taking hold. It had to do with the fact nudists are able to sit together, without having a clue of someone’s background by looking at their clothing, and – in particular – uniforms that brought division and fear to many through much of WWII.
Now, this could have a basis in truth, or it could just be a ‘good story to tell,’ but there is a truth to be considered within it in any case. I’d like to spell out a few truths that became evident to my mind when I heard this, but -then again- I think I’d prefer letting you ponder this yourself to see if there are any special epiphanies that come to you.
