Good Morning Everyone….
For days I have been grappling with my own awareness of a disease called COPD.- As a member of the ministry I see and speak with a lot of different people from all walks of life. As a Health Care Professional, I am faced with a lot of anxiety and stress issues over one form of illness or another. Recently I have had to brush up on my “knowledge” of just what COPD is. I use the term, I hear the acronym I even use it. BUT, not that long ago when asked exactly what the full wording was , I drew a blank. COPD Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
I have no excuse for not remembering, over the year I have met enough people who live with and manage this challenge. Being retired, the occassions are less, Unless we are face to face withe the disease, or have someone in our immediate circle suffering with the disease, it fades into the background. In the Church of Perfect Liberty, PL ministers are set up to offer personal guidance that respond to problems in our daily lives. Through consultations you receive personal guidance tailored to your individual character and situation. Each of us has our own unique personality, lifestyle and challenges, therefore, it is different how each of us will practice the true way, or seek happiness.
If you want more on COPD you can search on Google, there is a ton of information on the disease out there, most importantly IF you think you have any symptoms of COPD, talk about it with your doctor. Don’t delay, there is no known cure, but it can be managed. Intuition awareness of our own bodies, how we feel, the personal challenges, they are real, we need to speak out, share, and work with health care professionals to overcome the frustrations of dealing with challenges on our own. Let family know, and friends, so they can share the challenge with you. Sometimes life becomes restrictive, redirect your energy, find other ways to occupy your time that are as rewarding and fun as your other pastimes were. Value your intuition.
Music brought COPD back into my life. A performer whose daily life with COPD has given him the strength and dedication to share music with his friends and followers. I hear how the disease is affecting him when he speaks, it isn’t easy for him, yet the music he brings to the world with his genius for pulling together various artists and sounds into a symphony of good vibrations is awesome. I have no idea what personal pain and challenges he deals with on a daily basis, but I do know his positive energy, it comes out during his sets, he weaves a spell of love through everyone who attends his shows. This doesn’t happen .. just because… it happens because the man has connected with God, his body gives him “grief” but his soul is flying high with a Divine love that he wants to share with the world. To hear and appreciate his artist creations, you can contact his partner Maryrosella (Butterflyrose) for his schedule inworld, Or for that matter DJ Sky himself (SkyRider Sicling)
For those of you interested in Gospel, DJ Sky plays gospel for an hour on Sundays, from 11- noon SL time. (Pacific Time) You want Blues, you want Gospel DJ Sky will serve it up to you big time.
Stroll gently through your day, breathe in the fresh air, and drink in the sweetness of life, no matter the challenges. Love is all around us. Smile and give the love back twofold. Oyashikiri
