Easter In Audio~Visuals

If you google ‘Easter’,  colorful photos of beautifully painted and decorated eggs adorn the screen but you and I know that’s not the real essence of what Easter is all about. I’d seen the movie  ‘Son of God’ and was immensely moved by the depictions of Jesus’ life on earth and the sacrifices he had to pay for humanity (film adapted from the bible series).

Producers and Actress Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel, The Bible) and Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor) brought the epic miniseries “The Bible” to television audiences around the world. Mixing adventure, action and drama with authentic tales from biblical history, the series drew acclaim for retelling the stories in a way relevant to today’s audiences.

The pictures below are from the movie. A recommended watch and a great  to-do this Easter.

It brings the story of Jesus’ life to audiences through compelling cinematic storytelling that is both powerful and inspirational. Told with the scope and scale of an action epic, the film features powerful performances, exotic locales, dazzling visual effects and a rich orchestral score. The film spans from Jesus’ humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection.

Selflessly Happy Productivity

If you are on any pedestal that is limiting your productivity it’s time to get off it and smell the roses. Come down to the ground level and roll with the butterflies in the field, breathe in some natural fresh air and tumble across the hills.  These simple life tips tells us how we can live and love  selflessly while mainting a productive, successful life.

“It’s not what we do that attracts people, it’s how we think”

It’s really OK to be kind,  happy, warm, down-to-earth, modest,humble, nice to other people  even as a successful person. If you say you are not genetically inclined, (as I heard someone say) or status demands it, it can be learned as a habit.  It is easier this way to attract further productivity. Here are some paraphrased tips on how to treat others compiled originally by M.Jaksch accompanied by relevant music I selected to share with you .

1. Focus on the good in people.

None of us is perfect. We all have traits that make us difficult to live with. It’s easy to focus on what is difficult. Instead, look for what is good and strong. If you do catch yourself focusing on negative aspects, remind yourself that you too have faults.

2. Smile.

When we smile, we become mindful and step out of our preoccupation. No matter how you connect with others, remember to smile. Whether you’re connecting face-to-face, or via Twitter, email, chat, Skype, or phone,  your inner and outer smile will be felt by the person you are connecting with.

3. Let go of grudges.

Do you stew over how others have treated you? It can be difficult to release yourself from negative thoughts about how someone harmed you or made you unhappy. Such negative thoughts are corrosive and will harden your heart. So let them go and focus on the beauty of the present moment instead.

4. Be a positive mirror for others.

Make sure you let the people around you know all the wonderful things you can see in them. There is a lovely poem by Galway Kinnell that talks about this:

… sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on its brow
of the flower
and retell it in words and in touch
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing.

5. Be helpful.

The key to creating lasting relationships is to think about what you can do for others. Selflessly loving.

6. Be kind.

Kindness is never out of place.

Proverbs 11:17 A man who is kind benefits himself, but a cruel man hurts himself.

7. Be grateful.

And then express your gratitude to God, people, in words and deeds. Everyone loves being valued.

Have a Gratitude Attitude!

Press Toward The Goal

Hello Everyone,

This article  from UCB  resonated so well with my spirit this morning that I decided to share the love. Be inspired.

Be Passionate About It
‘Press toward the goal for the prize…’ Philippians 3:14
Albert Schweitzer said, ‘Success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.’ When you feel passionate about something and allow yourself to pursue it, you position yourself to succeed in life. The majority of people in the world don’t follow their passion; as a result, they’re frustrated and unhappy. And you can see it in how they live their lives. Publisher Malcolm Forbes said, ‘The biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at what they enjoy.’ As a result, they simply endure their working lives instead of making the most of them. They live for the weekends. They try to hang on until retirement. That’s a shame, because your chance of success is directly proportional to the degree of pleasure you derive from what you do. Tommy Lasorda, manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team, said, ‘The best day of my life is when I manage in a winning game. And the second best day of my life is when I manage in a losing game.’ In other words, every day he was involved in the game was a day he was living his dream. Are you? Dreams come true when gifts are set on fire with passion. The best career advice you will ever receive is to discover your God-given passion and follow it. Logan Pearsall Smith said, ‘There are two things to aim at in life; first, to get what you want; and after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.’ So ‘press toward the goal for the prize.’
