Happily Ever After?


Happily Ever After?

And they lived happily ever after… Big hustle and bustle… insert one of your favorite stories here… and then they lived happily ever after…

… I think it means, the three dots, fill in the missing parts yourself. Or maybe, leap with your imagination. I think I use it a lot just to indicate the thought continues. As if to say pause, and reflect a little, a bit more than a comma.

But I admit that my relationship with punctuation, english grammer, and the like is a bit one sided.

Anyway, back to happily ever after…

It struck me, what does happily ever after look like? We know well what the hustle and bustle looks like right? If we don’t, we have hundreds if not thousands of movies, millions of books, and a gazzillion stories to give us examples.

I might argue that the happily ever after is individual to each person, or group of people, and that is our’s to decide… somehow too sacrosanct to make a telling of.

Then why so many grandiose tales of the struggle and the strife… and all the telling that comes with that? And then once it’s all climaxed and resolved, the sum of all the rest is left with the line… and they lived happily ever after?

As if, we are happy to tell all the struggles, the drama, the strife you will go through… but someone a three hour long movie about what happens AFTER the evil bad guys are defeated, well…

Where is the movie about 1000 years of peace? Why is that always just a … and the meat is the battle scene …

What compelled me to write this down, oddly enough, is an episode of Scrubbs. It’s an odd show I would have never expected myself to watch, much less enjoy.

Jordan introduced me to it, and I found myself very much enjoying it. The season finale illustrates this remarkable human characteristic of which I reference.

There is a surprisingly lengthy ‘future’ montage in the episode where the character envisions his dream future… very specifically.

Honestly, it made me cry. It made me smile. It’s well worth the time to watch it.

Funny how there is a little something more you can appreciate when you are aware of the intricacies of the characters that come from the stories of the struggle and strife πŸ˜‰ What a beautiful dance.

I think it’s high time we take the lead in this grand dance with the devil. Here’s an idea on what that might look like.

Let’s create a movie script, a screen play, a story, a song, a stunning visual graphic, about what life could be.

Let’s all make one for ourselves, let’s make one for the groups we live and interact with, and lets make one for the whole of us all, all of us together.

Let it be about the 100000 years of prosperity, joy, respect, celebration… of a grand people who lived as gods, every one of them, in honor with and of the other.

And then let’s ask ourselves… how do we get from here…. to there.

What would it take?

Then let’s make that happen.

All my love,

    Many company proprietors inquire for my suggestions of the very best telephone services, marketing ideas, data backup services, and so on. I’ve outlined all my suggestions in this article, so make sure you study it, and then bookmark it for future use!

    You can easily give your little business a large company image merely by using professional phone attributes. get virtual sms number services features such as a digital receptionist, smart call forwarding, voicemail to e-mail and a toll totally free business quantity can give you a large business look, and enhance your ability to provide customers much more successfully.

    Low-cost 800 Figures: Want to make it free for a great deal of callers without bankrupting you? Most VoIP companies provide inexpensive 800 figures – free to the caller, fixed monthly price for you (varies, but roughly $5 for the initial one hundred minutes each thirty day period, then four.five-cents or so per minute beyond that).

    Even today, in many parts of the globe, there are languages which are not supported by textual content messages. Voice messages fills in this void completely. Vocal concept is also the solution for individuals who are averse to textual content SMS.

    Never, ever, allow anybody place you on silent maintain. If your VoIP service doesn’t listen to some thing on that line for several minutes (how numerous appears to vary), it may simply disconnect you, evidently on the concept your phone is really off the hook.

    My passion is cooking and serving meals, not answering the telephone. At one time, working with the phone was 1 of the most tough elements of my home catering company. A virtual telephone system changed all that, and my business is performing great.

    At the end of your post, this last bit, “Let’s create a movie script, a screen play, a story, a song, a stunning visual graphic, about what life could be.” It reminded me of when a child makes a drawing. One that mostly has their family, all of whom you can generally recognize with exception to that one odd shape where you may point out and ask, “what is this/that?” to the child. He/She replies, “This is my family, here is Mommy, daddy, …” My point, the child’s imagination doesn’t stop. They first imaginegd it while drawing, then made it a reality by explaining when asked. If only I had that power… Thanks for the post Ray.

    This is Amazing Ray, your words have the perfect flow to them I Love the way you observe everything.

  13. Now, thanks to the hard work and dedication of scientists and doctors around the world, cancer victims can fight back.
    We also as you say the initiative removed the menu from the Heroes V and received
    it from Heroes III. So watch Heroes online on any entertainment website and
    experience for yourself.

    “Happily ever after” sounds like the story to live in to me. Maybe now is the time to let all of the stuff that came before the happily ever after slip away..and maybe the best way to know what happily ever after looks like is to just live it.
    “Imagine all the people, Living for today… Woohooohoohoohoo.”
    …and we all lived happily ever present. =)

  17. Peterson says:

    In my opinion, the answer for us to live happily ever after is already answered completely, if not partly, in the song “Imagine.” Humanity would live happily ever after when:
    1. We all know that heaven or hell are not physical places but rather states of reality that we ourselves create.
    2. We all live for today, meaning we all live in the moment.
    3. We no longer have separate countries but rather live as one, not only with each other but with all creation.
    4. We no longer use violence as a solution to disagreements.
    5. We are accepting to all beliefs and disbeliefs about a/the Creator.
    6. We share all resources, thus ending hunger.

    We may be dreamers, but we are not alone; someday the humanity will come together, and will finally be as One.

  18. That is a very good question Ray, what would it look like? What is happily-ever-after? Its almost like setting a goal for our existences. If we dont know what we want and what that might look like or begin to look like we wont know how to paint it. We wont be able to create it. I feel like everyone will probably have a different picture or idea of happily every after for them and I would be interested to see everyone’s ideas on that.

    For me it is community, healing, unity, connection, balance, nature, science exploration, freedom, no limitations, creativity, and love. Wow, its time to manifest our happily ever after!
