What does it take to get our attention…???

image…What does it take to get our attention…???

 

…Poets, politicians, pundits, preachers, populists, doctors, lawyers, teachers, Indian Chiefs, humanists, corporate suits, bank$ter”, militarists, law enforcement, tabloid celebrities, even prison officials have in their own “special” and unique  manner maneuvered to get our attention, and quite frankly some have been incredibly successful

 

…Just who might they be…???

 

…It is solely dependent upon…on… you…!!!

 

…Yea, I know you don’t want that responsibly, you’d rather be able to point your finger at “them”…

…Or be able to say … the devil made me do it…or not do it, as you feel the situation warrants…

…Bob, weave, shake or dance all you want …BUT… you “ain’t” going to like it…that monkey is solely on your back…

…The challenge we each have is (a) to know yourself to the degree that, (b) you are capable of being totally honest with self at all times about all things…

…This is a tall order and not for the faint of heart…

…Attaining such requires we run the gamut and gauntlet of emotions, which is not accomplished overnight, nor without some contemplative backtracking…

…Having accomplished this allows us to more accurately contemplate the contribution each of the above named entities had on our attention… influencing our actions, giving voice to our words…

…Loud strident, repetitive “talking-TV-heads,” from virtually every wall appear, making it challenging not to give attention to them…

…Do those Sunday morning TV religious preachers of all colors and creeds, stir your soul, as each proclaims, they alone know the way…to take you safely to those pearly gates… Now put your hands together and say…Hallelujah…and don’t forget the collection plate…be generou$…

…How about those in mega dollar suits…politicians, bank$ters, tabloid celebrities, and corporate alike…do their well-rehearsed sound bites stir you to attention and to believe…???

…Let us not leave out our military in uniforms with bedazzling badges, pendants and stuff clamoring for our attention, as they provocatively proclaim the righteousness of their position…

…Those offering and contributing without benefit of a popular stage…you know well who they are…begin from a position a bit behind the proverbial 8-ball, knowing their words and actions will be translated by others to suit their needs, their goals, their desires, not caring about the accuracy of their work product…

…Here is a follow-up question… when you are successful in getting their attention…what are you going to do with it…???
