Ready, Set, ACTION…
Metro Atlanta is now being called the “New Hollywood.” So many movies are being filmed in Georgia. What is the first thing that comes to mind, when you think of the making of a movie? For me, it is the director who yells, “Action or Cut.”
For many of us, we are the directors in our own lives. We have to know when to yell, “Action” and also when to yell, “Cut.”
Many of you that know my past, you know that I have a great fondness for some of the practices and teaching of Buddhism. Before any of you start emailing me, yes, most definitely I am a Christian. I just believe that every moment can be a teachable moment.
One of the things that the Dali Lama XIV said is, “Don’t try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist, use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are.”
As Christians, our goal should be to make God the Father, God the Holy Spirit and God the Son look good. The triune of God should show up in our living, our talking, our interactions and our reactions with everyone we meet. When life happens, and you wake up in morning, God says, “Ready, Set, ACTION” how will you respond? How will you Show Up?
Today’s video is not a song, but rather a thought. Be open to being better…
