A couple of days ago my endearing sister Ani Kaspar posted a fascinating application on my wall. (I always love to follow Ani and play with Ani because among many other genius things she walks, she discovers these great toys). The application showed my fb picture framed by facebook and read this short message above the picture : “May God always bless this kind person below with peace, love and happiness.” Underneath my picture it said: “yes, t’s you”… I looked at it, read it, looked at the picture and just felt like wooohooo that’s me!!! …so good. I felt so completely acknowledged!. Thank you Ani! Exactly what I needed this morning (and probably every morning until I leave this ungrateful planet). ..(Smile) Kidding, it was pure sense of joy!
Then when I read the thread I was curious as how it worked…it looked like everybody in the thread had received the same thing.
Wait a minute, how do you send something to one person with that person’s pic and everybody receives it with their picture… Anyway. Pretty hard to understand mechanism for my my right brain thinking. It was clear it also felt like magic for everybody who received it the same way it felt like magic for me. Ani kept saying : “share , pointing at the link …Then I decided to share. It intrigued me how it worked and this was a way to explore the intriguing application.
My thread kept growing and bringing more happy people touched by the magic. The thread is still growing after 48 hours!
Fascinating stuff. (Some people were saying it was a spam but I checked everything with other friends and so far looks like is completely legit…you know how careful you have to be with spammers if you’ve been in fb for a while.) The other great advantage of the application is that it brought to my wall so many people I haven’t talked in a long time almost instantly. Pretty cool!
This led me to confirm one more time how so very crucial it is for us as human beings to be acknowledged. That is what this application does for people. Acknowledgment! What a gift! In a planet where you are considered as a number and acknowledgment has become by choice a useless commodity.
That is why a lot doesn’t feel good inside most of the time. Without acknowledgment we don’t exist. We are a drawing on the wall. When it feels like that, like being a drawing on the wall you are on the way to lose yourself. Therefore that is the moment you are under the ultimate obligation of acknowledging yourself. Why?
Because you are the ultimate authority within yourself and believe it or not, the only acknowledgment that your soul will verify as valid is the one coming from you, your ultimate authority. Makes sense? If it does, I want to share with you the status my friend Bruce Fowler wrote in facebook. I know it will help:
It is about the person in the mirror…
“Never neglect the person you see in the mirror. This is the only person in the world, who has witnessed the entirety of your life. This person has experienced the thick the thin, the highs the lows, the good the bad. There aren’t to many certainties in life, but without a doubt you can always count on the person in the mirror. So in exchange for this life long service be sure to place a high value on him or her.”
…and please don’t forget the person in the mirror is the only person in the world who can truly help you! Why?
Again, because the only acknowledgment that he or she needs is your acknowledgment. Nobody else’. Serious! There is a reason for that. You are the only one who has the authority to issue the codes your soul can verify. The only one that can quiet your restless soul. The illusion is that somebody else can do that when only you can.
What an inspiration Bruce… great image!
At the same time it makes me happy that people come up with creative ways to start bringing acknowledgment to our every day thinking feeling and speaking.
Thanks again Ani and Bruce~~~
…and remember to start acknowledging the person in the mirror as the blessing in your life. Every time he or she shows up in the crystal clear surface of his or her own reflection.
