“There are still so many questions to answer about the workings of the human body and, most mysterious of all, it is influenced by our state of mind.” Craig Venter

If any thing is sacred, the human body is sacred. Walt Whitman
In order to experience everyday spirituality, we need to remember that we are spiritual beings spending some time in a human body. Barbara De Angelis


Did you know that to be born in a human body is a 1 in 400 trillion gift of life? The sheer combination of factors and scientific engineering that it takes to create a human life is mind-boggling.  If we stop to take stock of every single action, muscles, connective tissue, mental and physical energy coursing through our bodies, we’d be impressed. Each of us is a masterpiece wonderfully made and we need to remember that with gratitude for the life we have. When we are able to pause and value our life, we will grasp the importance of valuing others lives too. We come into the world with a unique set of gifts, and we use them to make a difference in the lives of our friends, families and strangers. When we operate from a place of awe and gratitude for the gifts we have, we work at using them in the best possible way to uplift others and the world. How? When we perform our duties with pride and commitment, we elevate all around us and that energy continues to ripple out to the world. It is our responsibility to serve with passion and compassion and all of us can do our part.

Fearfully And Wonderfully Made! by Melissa Muchemwa
You are flowery beautiful
and kindly cheerful.
you do your own thing;
and you are your own song
You got your own style
and your own smile.
You are absolutely Unique
Everyday of the week.

Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn’t that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you. Marilyn Monroe
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me. Steve Jobs

Why is there so much hate in our world? Recently, a friend shared a message with me that someone sent her. It was from a member of an online group I’m in.  It was so hateful and ugly that it made no sense to me why anyone who feels that way about me or another person online would choose to be around me or that person. Why poison yourself with such hypocrisy? Why pretend to be a team player when you are a hater? Why wallow in all that hate over Twitter shares? We are all fearfully and wonderfully made yet, some can’t let the hate go. The saddest part is that these petty hatreds can grow into monsters. Soon, the person starts to imagine things the other person never ever thought of doing or thinking, and then, the hatred escalates into something else. Let it go. We are all here on this earth to learn and grow. We all have our fault-lines and that is what humanizes us. Compassion and direct communication can clear the air. Try that first and see how freeing it can be. If it doesn’t work, remove yourself from the situation. Don’t become a troll. We are all guests on this planet and the best guests remember to be grateful and principled. We live and we die by our principles…

The Summer Day by Mary Oliver
Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean–
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down —
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
I feel as though my life is bathed in golden sunlight. And the really wonderful thing is that I know it. Helen McCrory

Why is there so much darkness even when we are surrounded by light? Because we stay stuck with unrealistic expectations about others. When we can learn to live and let live, we will open a door to our heart that enriches our lives and flows out to help and heal others. Again, our human existence is a great and rare gift, and our body functions in the most amazing ways that would take our breath away.  If we stopped to ponder the genius behind it all, we would be humbled by the magnificent  and brilliant machine that  gets us up and out of the house every day.  So, don’t waste time on hateful behavior. Cherish your life and aim to be better every day. Who is without fault on this planet? We all have our baggage and we can change our thinking and actions through forgiveness, love and communication, NOT through fear, intimidation or murder. When we begin to see our lives as sacrosanct, my hope is that we will also see the lives of others as sacrosanct. My heart goes out to all who have lost a loved one to violence. We come into this world for a season and our legacy lives on. Forgiveness and healing are imperative steps to take. I feel deeply pained, every time hatred, hypocrisy and violence cross my path because we can all be greater and better towards each other. Stay safe, uplifted and encouraged EVERYONE!

Guest House by Rumi
This being human is a guest house
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.


Have a happy, peaceful and productive week ahead!

    This is such a great post. Actually, in my early age I wonder how my body works even if it was being explained by science. But when I get older and have a knowledge to understand everything, I understand that there is someone letting me move and that is our God without Him we can’t do the things that we wanna do. That is why I believed that human is His one of the most wonderful made here on earth.

    It’s a shame someone felt they had to air publicly on twitter. Just approaching the person that they have a grievance with can help clear up problems. Saying things that are mean about people to others isn’t nice and just creates negativity.

Our bodies are an amazing gift and we need to celebrate ourselves and each other. I so agree that jealous thoughts and hatred are such a waste of time and energy. Why troll, when we can lift each other up or spend that time working on self-improvement!

    Sorry that you had to endure that, it is so easy for someone to sit behind a screen and talk whatever they please about another person! If you don’t have anything good to say don’t say anything at all.

    I think it’s important to remember that though we are destined to die as we are born, due to cell replication our bodies renew every 7 years. Did you know that?

    I couldn’t agree more with some of the many things you mentioned! Especially the hate and evil towards people on things they done even have control over! We spend so much time criticizing others than finding ways to enjoy each others times and find things we share in common!

    These are the very things we discuss as a family when reflecting upon life and where/how the world came about. The design, the impossibly intricacy of it all, the way our bodies work from the inside out… we are undeniably wonderfully made, along with all of creation 🙂

    the amount of negativity sometimes exhaust us as it sucks the happiness and energy out of our day. While most might say, try to avoid these people. but it’s difficult to remove the words once we’ve seen it (from the example you’ve mentioned)…

    I know exactly how it feels. I used to run a group on FB with 8k members. I would say, I’m kind of strict when it comes to implementing rules and I am not afraid to call them out even publicly. There were times I’d receive hate mails from members and telling me that they’ll quit the group (like ma’am this is not the airport, you don’t have to announce your departure lol). There’s this one message that’s memorable – she wished me death just because we muted her for 24 hours. I mean, why? But yeah, those that I got hatemails from were the members who do not follow instructions.

      Wow. That is insane. I thought I had some really nasty exchanges as a group manager but nobody wished me death.

    I love what Marilyn Monroe said, Success triggers some people to get jealous and hate over you. We are wonderfully made by our creator and there’s always a balance in this world. The poem is admirable in the end.

    Sadly, there are too many haters in our world today. Personally, I stay as far away from that type of behavior online and in real life. I like peace not toxicity.

    I agree the expectations of others can stop us in our tracks. I think it’s important to realize, and to put into practise, that we cannot live our lives based on the expectations of family, friends, or anyone, if we hope to succeed in this chaotic world.

    Growing population could be great if harnessed properly just like China did. Over population is just as bad too, I am of the opinion that countries experiencing overpopulation should increase tax rates of families with over 4 children and lower tax rates of those with 1-2 kids
