Back In Time To Go Forward
Back In Time To Go Forward
I hope your weekend is off to a great start, I’m still singing today as Steve Miller has gotten stuck in my head. “Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' Into the future” And wanting to soar like that eagle, it's our time to take a bird’s eye view of the week that was along this shared path we call, “Becoming Today”.

5, 4 Friday
hanks for joining us today. It’s Friday already and that means we do things a little differently. Rather than focusing on a single topic I take this day to share somewhat random thoughts on things that pop up and stick in my head. On this edition of “Becoming Today” we’ll look at five of those for this Friday. Beginning with the ridiculous and hopefully finding something sublime to share.

Two Simple Words
Two Simple Words
Two words. Simple. Easy to spell. By themselves just kind of ordinary. However when you place them side by side they are very powerful, life altering and affirming.. On this edition of "Becoming Today” we’ll delve into the phrase of “So Ordered” and why it got stuck in my head.  This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2022/05/16/two-simple-words/

Searching For True Love
Searching For True Love
Perhaps a bit misleading but today’s headline makes sense in a few moments. First though let me make it clear that this is not about romance, nor is it about hunting for a soul mate. So what then does this have to do with true love? Glad you asked, it’s about what your true love should be. That’s where our discussion will lead us on this edition of “Becoming Today”.

What’s In A Name?
What’s In A Name?
Personal identifiers are apparently now perceived far differently than I was always led to believe. A name was something to take pride in, live up to and share as a way of making connections. However it seems, especially as we emerge into our ‘post pandemic” realities. That must no longer be the case. We’ll explore “What’s In A Name?”, on this edition of “Becoming Today”.

Increasing Value
Increasing Value
Everyday it seems we hear about increases in prices and how the value of this and that continues to reach record highs. But what about you? Is your value increasing? Are you taking steps to ensure that it is or are you allowing yourself to be devalued by others? Increasing our values is the focus of our conversation on this edition of “Becoming Today”.This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2022/05/02/increasing-value/

Living with attitudes of being compassionate and empowering dignity allows us to transform our suffering, pain or pasts into productive, beneficial healing, growth and change.

Now moving forward, on this edition of “Becoming Today”, we will learn that our next available tool concerns Peace.

The Best Policy
The Best Policy
It remains true, though we seemingly do not see it adhered to as much these days. In fact the opposite, is shielded under other names, and accepted as just everyday common practice. Enough is enough, we know words have meanings, and those meanings can aid your discernment if you choose to accept this best policy, we’ll discuss on this edition of “Becoming Today”.

Today is a day to pause and remember, to reflect upon blessings and the costs that were paid for them. As we enter into the Easter weekend, we’ll touch upon this month’s overall theme of “Celebrating Resurrection”.

Illuminating 8.3: Respecting All
Illuminating 8.3: Respecting All
Seeking enlightenment is essential to our journey here on “Becoming Today”. After all, what I’m sharing each day is aligned with “Becoming” as a noun: ‘’the process of coming to be something or of passing into a state”. Coming to be always, “Becoming”. Growing, developing and shifting into an attitude and daily practice of always, “Becoming”. That’s the essence behind, “Becoming Today”. Our idea of the 8 Points of Light is among those.

Ready To Receive?
We say we are ready for things. Ready for things to get better. Desiring for more. Even claiming to be ready for change. But are we really? On this edition of “Becoming Today”, we’ll look at the question of whether or not you are ready to receive; plus we’ll explore three areas of focus to determine if you truly are.

Fridays have become our free form days, as I randomly wander here and there sharing some observations and remarks that have been on my mind throughout the week.

Friday Free Form
Friday Free Form
ROAR! I needed to say that right off. Let me repeat it too,... ROAR! Yes I’m fulfilling my promise to you. As the now previous month dawned, in “Lion or Lamb?”, I shared as the old saying goes, “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb”. I had been sharing about a rough February personally and my efforts to march forward from the “Depths of Dormancy”. “So for me I’m admittedly a bit more sheepish as this month begins, however I plan to be roaring when we next flip the calendar page.” And I am. No foolin’, I am roaring into this cycle of our shared path. Promise kept and better for it, the question remains ‘Now, what will she say?’ On this Free Form Friday, edition of “Becoming Today”...

Much of what we will be discussing was learned and came to me by revelation during the 11-day odyssey, I’ve com,e to know, love and share as “My Revival”. During this time of travel, restoration and intense reflection I found myself being guided to numerous solutions and possible ways of “Becoming”. Many of the answers I was led to were ones that at the time I didn't even know I was, or was supposed to be looking for.

Reemergence: Blossoming and Becoming
As both the calendar and clock signaled to us, this was destined to be a week of change. Right on schedule, changes took hold and are prompting many of us to Spring forward as well. Yesterday brought us the true seasonal change of the equinox. Spring of course is also a very symbolic time of year. Spring is a time of reemergence. It signals the shifting of life’s processes of reemerging from the “Depths of Dormancy” and causing us to blossom once more. That’s the focus of our conversation on this edition of “Becoming Today”.

Step One: Decide
Step One: Decide
Welcome. When last we spoke I told you that I’d be meditating on the lessons that St Patrick brings to our shared path. Among those are proof we can overcome our doubts. Yes, you too, can do it  and are possibly even created for more. So how do you take your first step toward “Becoming” that”? With “that” being whatever you have imagined, dreamed or are personally be called to do? It’s really a simple step that we’ll talk about now on this edition of “Becoming Today”.

The Responsibility of Leadership
What character traits are necessary for an individual to serve as an effective and just leader? When we last spoke, our discussion centered around issues of a government designed to be “by and for the people'', being used to target micro-minorities across the nation.

Lessons learned I’m now ready to testify as to how this mystery unraveled and what its implications are for us along our shared path we call, “Becoming Today”.

Dedicated to Diligence
This conversation is motivated by an expression we don’t hear too much. At least not unless I’m talking to myself. “With due diligence….” See. When was the last time you heard it? I know. That’s why we’ll begin by drafting a common understanding of what it means. Then discuss why it’s important plus how we can get better at it .

Continuing along the shared path we call, “Becoming Today”, our journey has come to a fork. We must decide, choose wisely and then take action on forgiving both others and ourselves. While mercy and compassion are often braided together. they are different. We'll explore that next... This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2022/03/04/forgiving-freely/

Stating Our Union
Stating Our Union
On this edition of “Becoming Today” we’ll continue our discussion that began with me asking you to assess “The State of YOUR Union”. Yesterday I asked  you to consider some questions, then write a summary statement of your declaration of what the State of YOUR Union is. I’ll share mine in a moment plus we’ll look at some strategies for implementation. This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2022/03/03/stating-our-union/

Lion or Lamb?
Lion or Lamb?
A new day. A new month and with at least two new seasons beginning, plus an alteration of time, March can prove to be an extremely interesting one. As the old saying goes, “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb”. Referring to our weather in the Northern Hemisphere, however I’m feeling rather the opposite.

Getting Unstuck
Getting Unstuck
Before the world became busy with issues of war and peace, I was sharing some personal testimony that comes from recent experiences. While the global situation remains tenuous, I want to shift our shared focus back to our continuing conversation from the early part of last week, when I noted, "so overcoming the month that has been thus far has been a bit challenging for me". I couldn’t just snap my fingers or wiggle my nose and find myself closer to where I wanted to be. It’s taken effort to escape the “Depths of Dormancy” , “Roll Away the Stone” and “Reignite”. However, getting myself unstuck is certainly worth it. That’s where we pick up our discussion now, on this edition of “Becoming Today”.

Still The Birds Sing
Still The Birds Sing
Despite all that is going on in the world and actual storms surrounding me still the birds sing. Literally. It was so peaceful and reassuring. No matter what the challenge. No matter where in the world we may find ourselves. No matter what season we may be in, still the birds sing. Peaceful. Serenely. Calling out in the light. Bravely foraging, trusting their needs are being met. This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2022/02/25/still-the-birds-sing/

What The World Needs Now,…
What The World Needs Now,…
This is not what I had planned for today. I found myself at the keyboard much later than usual,as we saw the first disturbing reporting of an apparent attack possibly leading to a full scale invasion in the Ukrainian capital. While I have spent most of my professional life in Journalism, especially "hard" news reporting and investigations, it's not my purpose here to delve into the politics or history. My only thought is for the people. The impacts on those, not only in the Ukraine but truly world wide. With NATO and the US potentially becoming involved plus who knows at this point what this could be a precursor for, we will all be touched by these developing situations. The important thing to remember is we are not powerless. We can have an impact, a positive effect because what the world needs now is truly prayer. This is my call to each and everyone of you to pray. Pray for those in the region. Pray for those being sent to battle and most of all pray for peace. So as I encourage you all to pray, on this edition of “Becoming Today” I want to share my personal approach to prayer.

Reignite
As I struggled with my inability to perform I had no choice but to reflect on why I may be going through this. I still really don’t have all the answers and probably never will but certainly I knew what it would take to overcome. Time. And trust. I needed to slow down on some of the busy work and use this time to reflect upon deeper issues. So I did. While it did take a few days for me to steady myself, regain my strength and clear my vision, I’m now ready to Reignite! That’s the focus of our conversation now, on this edition of “Becoming Today”.

Comfortable Not Knowing
It really is true, sometimes you really do not need to know.

Seasonal Adjustments
Seasonal Adjustments
Much of “Becoming” involves embracing the need for change, it is the only way in which we can truly grow, develop and realize our potentials.  Life is a process. A repetitive one. We learn, grow, become then question, learn, grow and continue “Becoming”. As we continue to walk this path together, today our focus is on looking at ways  you can determine which season you are entering and how to best prepare for it. The first step is to Accept Yourself.

You can not create a state of “Becoming”, if you aren’t willing to let the former or current  realities go and go with the natural flow of accepting change. So on this edition of “Becoming Today”, we’ll consider some questions. Not easy ones, but ones that are essential in helping us to determine what season of life we each are embarking upon.

Today with certain exceptions, in America we pause to remember a man who was definitely a testament to “Becoming.” Overcoming struggles not only of his own, but also along with millions of other people.  His life on this plain ending far too soon, we pause from our regular format to remember and reflect on the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King Jr. and how his “Dream” and visions can certainly help to strengthen and motivate ours.

Kindness is an expression of admiration for our fellow human beings. That we all matter and truly have worth.  All of our lives have an intrinsic, inalienable God-given value. We are designed to live a life of service. To use our talents, gifts and abilities to make life better for others.

As I write this, it is a slow paced, quiet tranquil morning. With a cold front bearing down upon us, rather than the day heating up, as the sun rises- temperatures are dropping and will continue to fall. Old man Winter is indeed reminding us of his presence, and purpose. While this season is a time of dormancy itt is also a very enlightening time if you choose to accept it. Winter allows us to go within where we are suddenly made aware of the possibilities of new life, new ways and yes a new us.

I hope you enjoyed a happy and safe weekend. As we begin this first week of the new year of “+2″, no doubt much of what you’ve been reading or hearing about has been focused on renewing, refreshing or restarting. All very admirable topics, however on this edition of “Becoming Today”, we’ll pause to look in reverse. That’s because you cannot find the freedom to go forward unless you first release the past. So we’ll look at some ways in which you can refresh you renewing energies by looking at ways to let go of the old.

A Bigger Picture

However you will never be able to find out if you are right if you’re not willing to risk failure. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable and make mistakes, which we all do, is how you can learn to hear from God.

Living with attitudes of being compassionate and empowering dignity allows us to transform our suffering, pain or pasts into productive, beneficial healing, growth and change. On Saturday I shared, among my totally random reminders, “When it comes to seeking peace you just cannot do it passively. You must be bold about it, you must do it intentionally, steadfastly and constantly.” This struck a responsive chord with more than a few of you, so today I felt we should spend some more time on re-illuminating our shared path with how  to achieve and maintain a peaceful, easy feeling, as an attitude of our daily living.

Operating within certain “notches”, what resonated for me was some positive reinforcement. I’ve known for a while it’s not the circumstances of life, it’s me. Not that I’m deeply flawed, though we are all imperfect,  we can still be living each day to always be becoming and live a fully enriched and rewarding life.

Re-accentuate The Positive
Re-accentuate The Positive
Quoting an old song, our headline today can be pronounced as Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive. Good advice. A positive mental attitude brings joy into our lives and boosts the spirits of all those we encounter. On this edition of of “Becoming Today”, we’ll sing along in our discussion as we consider why, “You’ve got to accentuate the positive Eliminate the negative Latch on to the affirmative Don’t mess with Mister In-Between…” This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2021/12/10/re-accentuate-the-positive/

Declaring With Intent
Declaring With Intent
Words, their meaning and importance are always an important theme in our conversations here on Becoming Today. A recent study reveals that in the past year we as a collective planet have used more words than ever before.  However the quality of our words is declining greatly.

Recollections and Ramblings
Recollections and Ramblings
It’s been a very busy time here at “Becoming Today”. Since we’ve each on our own walk and collectively along our shared path have been ushering in a time of Transformative Tradition, I thought on this edition of “Becoming Today” in order to better ensure our continued forward momentum I would look back at some of the insights and steps we’ve been discussing.

Declaring Renewal
Declaring Renewal
A new week has arrived and here at Becoming Today I am declaring December to be a month of Renewal. Yes I said declaring it, and boldly so, because it is something that not only am I feeling strongly led to for myself, but as I look around we have such a need for it.

Freely Respect One Another
Freely Respect One Another
On this edition of Becoming Today we are exploring another element that is highly subjective, oft demanded and far too often not given. But remember that in order to receive R-E-S-P-E-C-T you must give of it freely. And that includes first giving it to yourself.

Defining Dignity
Defining Dignity
The trouble for some is that in order to receive these basic harmonious elements of life, we must also be giving of them freely not only to others but also be treating ourselves with each. Unlocking compassion  for others begins with taking care of yourself. Which we’ll expand upon as we then continue with the second element of Dignity.

The Advent
The Advent
As we flip another page on the calendar here on “Becoming Today”, you’ll see tomorrow is the day that many will light  the first candle of the “Advent season”. I’ve contemplated the meaning of this word advent, and this year I am seeing this time as a true beginning for all of us. The beginning of who we are “Becoming”; individually and collectively. This season can and I believe will inspire us all, just as sometimes a single word can... This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2021/11/27/the-advent/

Accepting Assistance
Accepting Assistance
At times we all need help. Don’t be embarrassed to ask. Turning to others in times of need should not involve shame. Instead realize it is a  strength. A sign that you have achieved the wisdom that you can not handle everything by yourself. Be willing to realize that you may not need the help you think you do. We don’t always require a solution  to the problem we think they have. This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2021/11/24/accepting-assistance/

Living Expectantly
Living Expectantly
Life is less about what happens to you, and more centered upon how you choose to respond to it. In order to seek happiness we must decide to do so. When you are feeling less than joyful, it’s a conscious decision for you to take the necessary action to foster the growth of Joy inside you. That’s where it resides.

Removing Roadblocks
Removing Roadblocks
Another week has come and gone already and I hope you found our most recent study of the 8 Points of Light enlightening. I also pray you are accepting and sharing each of them to the best of your abilities. No two can do it in identical ways. While we walk this shared path together, our steps are independently ordered and routes vary. Today we’ll look at how to merge together more easily, avoid detours and how not to let construction zones slow us down too much. Before we can accelerate into our future, we need to carefully and thoughtfully put things in reverse for a moment, back up, and unload, so we can continue on with plenty of space for our new attitudes, understandings and development. You can not create a state of “Becoming”, if you aren't willing to let the former or current  realities go. Letting go of the old  is our shared focus now on “Becoming Today.” This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2021/11/20/removing-roadblocks/

Eights Lights Illuminated
Eights Lights Illuminated
During a recent time of travel, restoration and intense reflection I found myself being guided to numerous solutions and possible ways of “Becoming”. Many of the answers I was led to were ones that at the time I didn't even know I was looking for. This idea of the Eight Points of Light is among those. While it builds upon and expands some concepts we’ve previously talked about along our shared journey, it also introduced me and now I will introduce you to some amazing concepts that are already improving my life and overall levels of joy. Contentment, rest, peace and happiness are in far greater supply and more readily available since I accepted this knowledge and leapt forward in Faith with it.

So far we’ve touched upon half the circle , and have discussed the petals of Compassion, Dignity, Respect and Peace. Now it’s time to continue moving forward and upward as we turn our focus to the fifth point of light, perhaps the greatest of them all, today it’s all about love.

Now moving forward, on this edition of “Becoming Today”, we will learn that our next available tool concerns Peace.

Respect For All
Respect For All
let’s choose to agree that R-E-S-P-E-C-T means accepting somebody for who they are, even though they are different from you or you may not agree with them. Respect builds trust, safety, and fosters healthy attitudes, though these emotions don’t come naturally; they are something you must learn and then share. Respect also involves treating others the way you want to be treated. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Traditionally recalled as “The Golden Rule”, simply put it is always being considerate of others as well as honoring their feelings, opinions, and property.

Bringing Dignity Into The Light
Bringing Dignity Into The Light
When you have chosen to live with dignity, it means you are worthy of respect. That you have achieved a state of attitude, acceptance and caring that fosters a vision of you being worthy of being held in esteem, regarded as trustworthy and dare I say “Becoming”. Dignity requires us to be self-confident, value our self-worth, foster our self-esteem and always be loving towards ourselves, as well as to practice self-care.

Faith Overcomes Fear
Yesterday we spoke a bit about “My Revival” and how this 11-day journey has reinforced my calling to be an ambassador. An envoy of all the possibilities that exist for ourselves and each other. To be  an emissary of what we should expect and where to seek (and receive) the answers. I mentioned we can all find them, but first there is something required of each of us. To take a proverbial leap of faith. That’s where we are leaping to now, here on” Becoming Today”. This episode is also available as a blog post: http://becoming.today/2021/11/06/faith-overcomes-fear/

Enlarging Your View
Enlarging Your View
On our shared path of “Becoming Today”, change is the one constant. We must always be willing to embrace the idea, to seek to better ourselves, our families, our communities and society in general. Where there is risk, there is always the potential for reward. We must choose to act in those moments and not react to circumstances that develop from our lack of action or the outright refusal to act, decide or choose.
