"And He sent them out...to heal." -Luke 9:2

"We must realize that the healing Power of spirit is within each and every one of us. We each have the Power to heal not only ourselves, but our world and all those around us. Spirit expressing through us as a kind word, a caring touch or a simple smile may be all it takes. When we realize who we are, the blessings we have been given, the Power we embody, we have tapped into the source of our healing ability. Every day we have at least one opportunity to help a friend, a loved one or even a stranger. Regardless of the color of our skin, our economic status, our social or political philosophy, it is our RESPONSIBILITY to do what we can, to assure that someone else does better. Today, let us become aware of the healing power within and dedicate ourselves to uplifting those we touch."

-Iyanla Vanzant, "Acts of Faith"

Sadly, those with financial wealth, who drive around in gas-guzzling Hummers using up our natural resources in the masses feel no responsibility or obligation to uplifting anyone less fortunate. These are people who ride along in their SUVs, occupied by only themselves, who are blinded to the fact that those that do their services (housekeeping, babysitting, landscaping, etc.) are struggling like hell in their daily lives while catering to these overly consuming sleepwalkers.

Wake up!!! In reality, if the shoe were on the other foot, these people of service who have struggled their entire lifetimes, would do anything and everything in their Power to help you. If your car was broken down on the expressway, we would stop to help. If we saw you struggling, walking home from the market with a baby on your hip and bags of groceries in both arms, we would stop and offer you a ride. If we found you in a desolate area, sweat pouring down your face, we would stop and, at the very least, give you a bottle of water.

I want you to think very hard about something...If the economy completely collapsed, the government totally shutdown, there was no energy left to provide us with electricity and, in essence, no gas left for your Hummers, how would you survive??? Would you even know where to begin??? Most likely, you would have to rely even more on blue collar services...I'm sorry, I just cannot see you washing your clothes by hand or tilling and norturing your own land for food. The time is coming that your survival WILL RELY on us. Kindness and understanding are in order NOW!!! Get off your high horses!!!

With Love & Blessings as always,

Windy Grace <3

Good hub Windy, I live in Northern Kentucky but I'm from Cincinnati (right across the Ohio River) and everyone around here likes to use the term hillbilly. I'll tell you what if I'm ever in trouble I'd be happy to be helped by that hillbilly 'cause country folks are resourceful folks and the most friendly people you could ever meet. Peace!! Tom

Thank you, Justom :) I was born and raised in a very rural area on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Virginia. This is a very tiny stretch of land located in between the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay. We do not even exist on many maps. In February 2004, I relocated to Baltimore, Maryland and saw the world with eyes wide open for what is truly happening...I didn't like what I learned. It's all about the Benjamins. What's going to happen when and if the Benjamins cease to matter anymore? It's ironic that you used the term 'Hillbilly;' because that's what I was referred to in the beginning of my journey in the city. There are no hills where I come from and I really don't fit the stereotype, but I am different :) I did help people while I was there and people remembered me for it; because there aren't many who help. It's just sad; because although I have struggled my entire life, I still offer a helping hand to someone else when I can. If I can do it, those with big pocketbooks should really be doing something. I'm not even saying they have to go all out; but a simple smile to someone struggling can and will make their day seem a little brighter :) We need to quit fretting over the small stuff and realize that there are much bigger things for others to worry about. While you're worrying about making a huge car payment or paying off your mortgage, someone out there is sleeping in a box or an old abandoned building while having to walk to work at a minimum wage job, knowing that they will never have a Hummer or a condo. They are simply struggling for survival...A simple smile, that brief happy yet connected to another human being moment in time can make all the difference in the world to someone who is in a major struggle. A change in attitudes would make all the difference in the world, our world. There is something to be learned from Hillbillies ;) Have a blessed day, dear friend :)

Love & Light,

Windy Grace

Right on Windy, are you hip to a singer songwriter named John Prine? If not give him a listen, he writes for the common man and among many of his great tunes is one called "Hello in There" about getting old. Please find it and give it a listen. Peace!! Tom

Hello!!! :) This is beautiful!!! I had never heard of John Prine before; but it fits very well and so I'm adding it to this Hub in honor of you, Tom :) I'm fighting the signs of aging hard...It's an intense war over here lol I will be 36 in September. Some say I'm still a baby, but I have lived :) Once I turned 30, something very big changed for me though it's something I find beyond description...This song does it well :)

I knew you'd like it. 36? You're doin' great, 30 was no sweat, 40 a bit bit weird, 50 not bad, 60 scary, but happy to be here. Peace my friend!! Tom

Thank you :) I'm a little weary of 40. While 30 was strange for me, I have heard a lot of crazy stories about 40th birthdays lol I witnessed my mother and her twin sister's 50th birthday. It was quite peaceful and there was a lot of reminiscing and laughter :) I guess I won't know until I get there and I'll never get there if I don't stop slamming on the brakes lol Just one more lesson of acceptance I have to learn...I accept anything from anyone else, but I'm like a drill sergeant to myself. With things like aging being out of anyone's real control, I have no idea how I can expect myself to stop it lol Just another amusing thing about being me I guess...At least I'm still laughing :) Have a wonderful evening, Tom!!! I'm carrying my old, overly exercised body to the shower and then bed. This new exercise routine is working me :P

Love & Light,

Windy Grace

Very insightful words of responsibility and respect - I like the question what would it be like on the other foot - people forget that. Indeed if you are without a job, power or food what would you do? We need to always remember that.

Thank you, Billy :) Absolutely right... Some become too comfortable with Life as they know it, overlooking the fact that anything can and will happen. I wish for everyone to feel stable and secure and stay that way forever. However, sadly, this is not the reality for many people. Many people are waking up each morning, fighting and rolling with the punches that are their reality. I just wish people would be a little more compassionate towards their fellow human beings regardless of differences...

Love & Light,

Windy Grace
