Eagle School

I had the pleasure of watching a short little video called, “You Can’t Send a Duck to Eagle School.” Basically the concept is that some people are not the right fit for the task that you need accomplished. Well that was the lesson of the day for me. This concept really hit home when my sixteen year old said to my husband, “Can you pick up some Milk when you are at work tomorrow?” (He and I own an electrical company that operates at five of the local coal mines where we live.)

Without missing a beat, my husband said, “There are no cows at the mine and the last time I checked you don’t get milk from coal.” He took things over the top by adding, “I could ask Doreen from purchasing to write me a P.O. so we can order some in.”

After I almost hurt myself because I was laughing soo hard, the concept really began to sink in. How many times in life have I gone to someone to get answers and they were not the person that was the right fit for the question? How often had I been looking for the help in the wrong place or advice from someone who had no business giving it? Or how often had I tried to get someone to be who they are not? Or do something that they did not want to do?

I am sure the answers to those questions would be staggering … so it is just best to learn from the experience (s). There are many times when I have found myself asking a loved one how to do something or discussion a problem with a friend when really it would have saved time and stress to go to the person with experience or find a qualified person to answer my question. Life is so much simpler when we have the right person for the job, no matter what the job or question is. I guess that is why the saying, “You can’t put a square peg into a round hole,” is so popular… when I have a task that requires a round peg… I just need to get a round peg and stop playing around with the square one.

Finding the Right solution to an issue requires the correct tools for the job, or the right people to create the solution. Hanging around with people that are not equipped to create the solutions is simply a waste of time. So from now on, I will be looking for Eagles instead of herding ducks. If nothing that I have written so far makes sense to you… watch this 4 minute movie and it will all come together… I am off to the store to get some milk! J

the Eaupening

I hope that you are having a wonderful week so far! Instead of sending out just one Inspired Story I wanted to invite you to the place where you can find lots and lots of inspired sharing. Since facebook groups and pages are different in the features that they offer we can’t have automatic blog feeds self directed to the group, nor do updates show up in news streams…. Therefore I invite you to join the Eaupening Page. the Eaupening (opening) brings to light all that is good in the world and in ourselves.

The Beyond the Secret group will still continue to share Law of Attraction, Natural Law stories/ quotes and inspiration … simply different ones then the Eaupening, so that it is beneficial to be a part of both the places.

Eaupening (opening)

When we share with others we create an Eaupening in our consciousness that helps us grow in understanding of others perception of things and events.

EAU = [Oh] French for WATER

Nothing in the world is softer and weaker than water. But for attacking the hard, the yielding, nothing can surpass it. There is nothing like it. The weak overcomes the strong; the soft surpasses the hard. (Tao Te Ching )

Water flows into, around and through. It is the makeup of 70% of our own bodies and our planet. Water is patient, soft and powerful. It can be clear, cleansing and refreshing. Water is source.

Pening= an invitation to the world to become authors /contributors of all things Positive.

When we place our focus on Positive information, ideas or events, we create an EAUPENING in our own consciousness to create more of the same. The EAUPENING is a free MOVEMENT to invoke acts of kindness throughout the WORLD and to create PEACE on EARTH.

The EAUPENING provides a place for everyone, any age, race, religion or background to fill their cup with all things positive. It is a place where content is monitored by the users. People can drink from this virtual Mecca of positive conversations and information then come away feeling refreshed and better for the experience. The intent is to grow a place where our world view can grow and expand from a sharing of information with a positive message. Inspiring others to go out into the world and do the same. Pay it forward and then come back and share.

When we place our focus on Positive information, ideas or events, we create an EAUPENING in our own consciousness to create more of the same.

By changing our focus off of the fear based media and onto Positive content, we can change our life experiences. If you click on the following link, you can see the reason and meaning of the name, the EAUPENING .

Humbly Yours,


Stand for Peace
