What can we learn from the happiest man in the world and Jessie Rees?

A lot of pain has been present in my living over this last week.  So much physical pain that I have done little even though I had plans to do a lot.  Truthfully, I have been much less than I aspire to be.  I found myself distant from my family. I have found myself being snappy with one of my son’s.  I found myself just wanting to be left alone to deal with my pain. And when it got too hard I took the easy way out: I took muscle relaxants which eased the pain and knocked me out.

And in this very week, what shows up in my world?  Inspiration.  Heart touching-moving inspiration from two sources.  The first is from “the happiest man in the world”.  And the second is from 12 year old Jessie Joy Rees.

The happiest man in the world

I find myself watching this man, listening to him and being captivated. Captivated by what?  His stance in life. The way he shows up in life.  The way he counts his blessing.  His philosophy of life. His wisdom. I am clear that he gets it. And as such I am delighted that I have come across him.

Jessie Joy Rees and the Joy Jars

What can I say? I find myself watching this video and there are tears running down my cheeks. I am inspired to ask this question:

How can I help them?

 

I have a question for you: how can I help you?  Please think about it and let me know.

  1. Hi Maz,
    You ask – How can i help you?

    By keeping on writing this blog this lifetime.

    You can move on to the next level, start your own podcasts show, to spread the message wider & also have a kindle ebook & book published from the collection of the blog posts.

    You can also have a Regular talk show on blogtalkradio.com, hayhouseradio & give talks on similar internet shows, radio shows, TV shows, write for magazines & Newspapers, where you open up each topic you discuss here & interact with audiences Question & Answer sessions.

    Put your self up as a speaker to travel to speak at various related events around the world where you can open up your message. Let everyone know you are available.

    That is how you can help & honor me – the human consciousness on this planet.

    Namaste,
