Note: You have the gift of prophecy

Granted it might not seem much of a gift — to imagine your way into a better experience, even if only for the next little while.

But really, what more do you need?

It’s not just a gift for you, it’s for all in your orbit.

Let’s say you’re on a freeway and you see someone trying to ease into the flow. You can be that person who lets them in, whose gift of compassionate foresight brings relief in a temporarily fraught situation.

Let’s say you’re in a zoom meeting following the path of entropy. It’s become so low energy the discussion has fallen apart. You can be that person injecting much needed clarity.

You see the trajectory and with a small bit of thought can change its arc into something better.

That could be the tagline to this website:

Notes For Creators — Making reality better

But really, isn’t that the theme of all religion, philosophy and the personal transformation universe?

How to make reality better….

And you — with your gift of prophecy for what is most likely to occur in the next few minutes — can do your part.

For yourself too.

You find yourself in a political back and forth that’s getting more and more heated. You can be the one to jump lanes. Or to seek common ground. Or to acknowledge the stark differences and then disentangle with (genuine) well wishes.

Or maybe you find yourself awash in anxiety. There’s plenty of track to keep that particular train rolling these days. You become alert to the building momentum and like the best of engineers, switch tracks.

It’s a small gift — to peer into the next oh so many minutes and see what’s most likely coming. But it’s your gift. And you can use this power for good.

For levity.

For fun.

For adding value.

For whatever you want to make it.

. . . . .

You have the gift of prophecy in you —
You can see into the next few minutes
and make them better

You Power, Me Power, People Power

Readers of Notes For Creators know the thrust here is creative spirit living, drawing inspiration from my decades in creative fields working with artists, writers, designers, freelancers and indie biz types.

Not much is topical — meaning, very little deals with news of the day. We’re concerned here with creative exploration, spirit renewal, with sussing out what works, with sharing insights and stories.

Today I’m breaking the mold. Today we’re celebrating just a smattering of the stories spinning out from the protests of the last week and a half, examples that highlight the power of connecting.

You can view these as examples of people power, and they are. To me they depict the power of an individual to light a spark for higher good.

They show me that I’ve got power in the moment. They show you the same. You can’t not be touched by these people — all showing us that small gestures, small actions at the right moment are impactful.

Here — restore your faith in humanity:

The power of showing up for others

These are just a few examples of the goodness breaking out everywhere. I guarantee you that more that is good and right and uplifting is bursting forth than its opposite.

May we all take this spirit into our daily lives. May I do so!

Note to self: Often it’s the simplest actions that change a situation for the better.
