~ Top 10 Ways to Change the World ~

Change the World

Muses Top 10 Ways To Change The World:

(just in time for spring)

  1. smile~! show those pearly whites everywhere, a smile begets a smile. negative emotions are eased when smiles are present. hope exists in a smile. smiles are immediate ice breakers and help put others at ease. studies show individuals who read smile emoticons, subconsciously physically return the smile. proof positive smiles are contagious. :)

  2. share~! use what you have, be it monetary or other, and give selflessly. don’t give with the intention of becoming a “i did that so you owe me” type of giver. let your sharing be an un-tethered gift.  and remember, sharing your time, your heart and even your prayers can be the most important gift of all.

  3. compliment~! who among us doesn’t treasure a compliment? it is the acknowledgment of value – a surefire way to make others understand you are truly looking at them and their accomplishments. this is not say constructive criticism cannot be given when required, but let’s be honest hearing “that really is an awful color on you” … what about, “i have always liked the way you set that (insert color here) dress ablaze, yes i’ll always remember you in that!”*    *truth in a muse’s marriage, “the early years”. compliments are sincere while flattery is the feigning of truth. be sure your compliments are unmarred by fictitious  pampering.

  4. encourage~! lift up those around you who seem disenchanted, depressed or lackluster. encouragement can be made with cards, letters and (cringe) yes, even an email to someone you know who needs to hear a voice of kindness. advise if appropriate, but a resounding “i know you can” or “i have faith in you” works wonders to a discouraged heart.

  5. courteous~! this is ever so easy to do. simple thank yous, yes sir (mam/miss), no sir (mam/miss), pardon me…and a myriad of little actions, such as holding a door or picking up someones dropped property..all take nearly no effort.  people are often amazed when they are treated with good manners. try it, you’ll see.

  6. eliminate~! purge yourself and your belongings. now, i don’t  mean to the extent of a cheapo “hollywood 10 hr cleanse” nor am i suggesting you become devoid of all material objects (your home etc.) – i want to explore ridding oneself of burdens. lets do that together! is there something in our lives that feels weighty? is there a big STOP sign along our life’s path? are we surfing in the negative wake of negative people? if so, we need to break free! stamp out that which has turned us into emotional/physical hoarders. shining the light on whiners and debbie downers has an uncanny way of making the rats run for cover. by using your illuminating lamp of elimination, those around you will feel compelled to become sunbathers of positivism rather than night-crawlers of negativity.

  7. appreciate~! oh goodness, does one ever tire of hearing how much they are appreciated? i really don’t think we can say it enough. too often we get wrapped up in how to say it differently, but there really is no need. imagine yourself being told by someone, “i appreciate you – i appreciate your time, your engagement – i appreciate your presence in my life”.  the sincerity of appreciation goes (imho) deeper than a thank you. appreciation expresses your heart ties to an act or to an individual. voltaire stated this, “appreciation is a wonderful thing: it makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.”

  8. inspire~ ! this could also be entitled motivate. look around your world, look at family, friends – no doubt there is one or more individuals who are feeling less than enthusiastic about, work, life or their future. being sympathetic  and feeling empathy are key factors in any relationship, but there also comes a time when you need to lift another human being spirit ~ to hoist them onto a level footing (where they catch sight of that brass ring once more). from tangible gifts to words of wisdom, inspirational remedies are as varied as the maladies. inspiring that lost craving of life’s desire will, more often than not require a tactile or sensory input. remember, inspiration comes in the most quiet of whispers to the loudest of marches. whether you choose to be a songbird or a symphony, your one primary goal … light a spark!

  9. ask~ ! don’t expect answers if you never ask the questions. seems divinely simple, but sadly many of us do not follow this very basic premise. we talk, we talk more, we keep on talking ~ never pausing to ask anyone’s opinions, thoughts or feelings. if we are truly wanting to impact the world in a better way, does it not seem plausible that we would want to inquire about the emotional and creative well being of those around us? how does it make you feel when someone you care about asks you “how are you feeling today?” … perhaps someone you admire inquires, “can you give me your thoughts on this?” you feel valuable. your thoughts matter. you have worth. personally, i follow this rule, ‘ask before i tell’.  seeking wise counsel benefits us all.

  10. repeat~ ! ask, inspire, appreciate, eliminate, be courteous, encourage, compliment, share, smile …. over and over ~ again and again. without fail. the world will be touched by you … it will be changed by you … and you shall be all the better for doing just that.

~ Thought Provoking Poetry – Do You Know by Muse ~

Do You Know by Muse

~Do You Know~
I cannot remember
When the day of life began ~
The uphill battle of this journey
In a life that keeps on turning
~
What will I be? Where will I go?
Do you know…Do you know?

I feel the rising of my soul
And this day will take its toll ~
I venture forth
Commanding a tyranny
Of resolute relevance
Into the night
~
What will I be? Where will I go?
Do you know…Do you know?
~
In this figurative landscape
That is my life
Shipwrecked in a sea of words
Drowning in an ocean
~
Swirled and stirred
I cannot be heard
~
I am emptiness
Defined
A singularity
Adrift
~
Do you know?
That you alone
Are my anchor ~
~
Do you know?
That you alone
Are my oar?
~
Let me release myself into
The mighty ocean waves ~
Let the sea water offer
Up a briny caressing haze
I shall be adrift
Until the end of days
Without you
~
What will we become?
Where will we go?
Do you know?
Do you know?
~
(muse from the book Anthesis)

~ Break Free If You Don’t Fit In ~

 

Have you ever felt like this? I know I have. I have the scars to prove it. But that’s just it, they are scars, not open wounds. That makes all the difference. To break free is to take one step, one very important step … the first step. Perhaps that step involves doing an act of kindness – simply and humbly. Or, it could be you decide to forgive a wrong done unto you. The possibilities of what the first step could be are infinite. Within your heart, you know what calls to you the most. A new job? A new relationship? Helping another person have a better life? Volunteering? No other person on earth can tell you more clearly the secret to break those bonds than your inner self. There is no greater determination to your path of escape, than the whispers coming from your heart and soul.

~ Unfurled – Inspirational Poem by Muse ~

True Inner Self

Enigmatic Evolution

As I have matured, my journey’s objective has become more clear. The road upon which I will travel is still a mystery. An accepted fact of my heart and soul. I garner strength each day through new people, new places, new adventures. These strange things, become familiar – embracing me for who I am. Living in a world where I can accept myself makes my trip much more comfortable. Aging has taught me to trust in my choices, to fling myself into the world like a young chickadee’s virgin flight. There is a greater power which holds, cradles and comforts – the wind propels you always onward … no fear.

Unfurl your wings – and take to the air – your virgin flight awaits you there. Naysayers be damned, as you weave to and fro – for only you, know where you go. Suspended animation in a horizon so blue – always remember, to your own self be true. (muse)

~ Ensanguine Ancestry – Introspective Poem by Muse ~

Ensanguine Ancestry - Introspective Poetry by Muse ~Ensanguine Ancestry~
~
Ensanguine ancestry can assuredly claim us all
Calamitous archival plaques hung upon our wall
Devoid of true purity for we are the sons of man
…Riddled faults and fractures we both must withstand
I beseech you my love to retreat from this malady
Do not cling to monolithic pain with such formality
Waning stygian pillars, watchtowers of your soul
Obsolete moats engulf you as cavernous gaping holes
~
Banal dawns tread synthetically across the plateau
Summarily deserted, your heart, an abandoned chateau
Know that I too once dwelled in virulent seclusion
But for the presence of you, my life was an illusion
I bid thee unbar your doors, clasp my ordained trust
The desolate castle of lost nobles crumples into dust
(Procured souls rapturously purging all past injustice)
~
(muse from her book “Anthesis”)
