I have only witnessed one person I know who gave to charity, recently, through a profile picture Blackberry Messenger, he announced donating money – Shaun Harris – You really are an awesome being! I have no idea of anybody in my camp who has publicly given, but I do know a lot of you, who have privately given. The term ‘Pay it Forward’ is not about telling the world how great you are, it is simply showing unconditional love to the universe, knowing that you can help someone else, without expectation.

Did anyone of you, whom I personally sent the link to donate a minimum of $10 to the tragedy in Japan, do it? Did anyone of you hold a door open for someone? Get your ass off your chair, riding whichever public service you use, for someone who needed it? Did anyone cook for themselves, and offered food to someone who is less fortunate? Paying It Forward comes in many forms and the form I am loving the moment, which is making it possible for my community of positive people, is Twitter! I just gave comfort to someone whom I don’t know from Adam, and guess what, he said “thanks!!” That was sweet that he acknowledged and appreciated it! But, Paying it forward, is not about the acknowledgement or expectation, it simply allows for each individual person to use positive energy to do something with love and be in the flow of it.

I talk about love in many of my blog pieces, and I swear to you that sometimes I ask myself to people really operate on that frequency? I meet and work with a lot of aggressive and angry people and I tend to keep my spiritual energy protected in some way or another, so I do not become infected with whatever energy these individuals possess. All of you, by now, know I love my talk shows, sooooooooo while I was watching Oprah the other day, something very profound was said by a young boy who suffers from an acute form of the mental dis-ease of bi-polar. He stated, “when negative thoughts come into my mind, I say to myself I am love. I have to cover myself with the ‘white light.’” I was blown away. It was like something opened up for me at that point. I know I am a positive person, and paying it forward, for me spiritually is a gift, so asking for God to continue covering me with my white light, which I believe is ‘Spiritual Protection’ is beyond and above everything in my current possession. In my mind, I believe that God and all that he is, is an important clarification on the workings and understandings of paying it forward.

2 Corinthians 9:7-8
7: Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8: And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Being free from anxiety, expectation, frustration and disappoints will mend your hearts to move into the realm of unconditional love. I know, because I am a constant work in progress, like you all. When Oprah responded to this young man who suffers from the bi-polar dis-ease she said something along these lines (I have to say “along these lines,” because we know misquoting Oprah can lead to court appearances……lol), “I try to put on the white light to protect me from negative influences around me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but I still ask for protection from God.” And that is the key, to understand that Paying it Forward sometimes will not be appreciated, but you know that when it comes from a place of love, you are always protected. Remember, God knows our hearts more than you realize.

On that note, do something for someone, and remember, once you do it…….let go, no need to be attached to the outcome.
If you have time, rent the DVD and watch the film that represents what I am talking about. It is a powerful film and really highlights the true depths of how mankind can really make this world a better place!

May your days continue to be filled with clarity, love, and most importantly THAT WHITE LIGHT!!

Much Love, TT.
