TO BECOME A HUMAN BEING…L. Shenandoah, Winnegrad

“THE GREATEST STRENGTH IS GENTLENESS,” said Leon Shenandoah. “There is no weapon against it, because GENTLENESS comes from the spirit.” TO BECOME A HUMAN BEING is through GENTLENESS, one will rise above their emotions. By using the “GOOD MIND” each person would have the WISDOM to make correct decisions, no matter the situation. This way there is only opportunities.


BEING A HUMAN BEING means we show respect for each other. IT IS EASIER TO LOOK BACK THAN IT IS TO LOOK AHEAD. When you do look ahead you then can accept your mission. Everyone has a mission. You can then pick the path that is for you. Your mission will always be for the good of others. You will know when you are on YOUR path, you feel it inside. YOU ARE HAPPY.


IF you are looking for praise, you are not paying attention to where you are going. “Watch what you say, somebody is always listening.” You can learn a lot more when you are listening then when you are talking. Nobody learns anything by talking. Somebody who is always talking soon shows that his head is empty.


It is important to FORGIVE because how can you give THANKS when you are filled with anger? YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND THAT THE GREATEST STRENGTH IS GENTLENESS. To protect yourself from others you have to develop seven layers of skin. If something touches you a little, you will always have another layer of skin for protection. We must RESPECT each other. Every HUMAN BEING must use their good mind and not be taken in by the evil one.


YOUR ACTIONS SPEAK FOR YOU. Treat others kindly and you will never have to say a word. Through you the world will be more peaceful. We decide if we live in peace. EACH PERSON YOU MEET IS A PIECE OF THE PUZZLE OF LIFE.

    I couldn’t agree more. If I may, I’ll add my true and fast rules:

    ~ Be courteous. Leave hostile in the gutter where it belongs. We’re all in this journey of Life together. Let’s at least try to get along. Basic manners work here. Please. Thank You.

    ~ Put down the Phone when talking to others (better yet, leave it in your pocket). Contrary to what you may think, no one is interested in any conversation you may be having and having a talking device attached to your ear does not make you important. Um, I think this goes along with being courteous.

    ~ Clean up after yourself. It never amazes me how sloppy and disrespectful people can be. One thrown piece of paper from a gum wrapper could add up to a whole community of waste blowing in the wind. We’re all grown up here and no one should have to pick up after us; did I mention courteous?

    ~ Hold the door open for a stranger. We can all use a little bit of help from time to time. Now, because your phone is in your pocket, you can extend a courteous act.

    ~ Smile. I know you’ve all heard how smiling uses less muscles than frowning or how just the act of smiling psychologically sends “feel good” neurotransmitters to the brain, but a smile is a gift you can give away for free. And they are contagious. So just think, because you are not on your phone 24/7 you can help someone with a gracious (which is synonymous with courteous), simple smile.

    May the New Year be Happy for all!!!!


  2. Sometimes I think your messages are specifically directed to me. This message should be saved and looked at often as it should be practiced each and every day.
    Thanks for your constant teachings.


  3. What an absolutely perfect post to end a year and start a new one! Thank you for these wise and thoughtful words. If only we could shout this from the hilltops throughout the world! 💜
