Life has taken me on a vicissitude of undulating adventures. Navigating through all the twists and turns – some positive and others challenging – I can certainly say it has not been dull. Recently inundated with a series of challenging moments, I have been forced to pause, step back, and lasso this wave.
During this most recent exercise, I have been given my ICP moment. Infinite Creative Potentiality (ICP) is not just a theory, it is a way of life and worldview through which I engage with my environment and others in it. ICP enables me to see the flip side of negative, challenging, ugliness and learn positively meaningful life lessons to empower others in the process.
The past couple months, I was slapped with an abysmal quagmire of ugliness. The only recourse I have is to lasso all of the murk into a Jackson Pollock-like bundle. Stepping back, I am finally able to see its beauty.
In all service industries, there exists tremendous potentiality for making a positively meaningful difference. However, there are many industries where the penchant for choosing that path is more nebulous and very nearly obfuscated by ugly, nasty individuals looking to scam there way into ‘the good life’ or ‘the easy dollar’. Oftentimes, the individuals who are in the wrong and know it bellow the loudest, denigrating the very people they are trying to swindle. It seems the larger the swindle, the louder the bellow. It is astonishingly the amount of creativity they pull from in their attempts to burrow their way from ‘wrong’ to self-proclaimed ‘right’.
ICP begs the question:
What if they channeled their creativity into empowering others by making a positively meaningful difference? Have they not realized that by empowering others, they too become that much more empowered?
What if they complimented those servicing them or those who have serviced them by a demonstration of common courtesy and respect? Whatever happened to a simple show of gratitude? Where did our humility go?
It makes me shudder to think of the lengths individuals will go to castigate others in complete defiance of our humanity. Have they forgotten our shared human condition?
No matter the object, you can’t take it with you. Why shroud yourself with the weight of negativity?
Indeed, positive karma is a lucky feather.
