Reyanna Sage Orey

A few days ago I posted an article on Authorsden titled, “The Pendulum of Life.”  In the introduction to this article, I wrote these short paragraphs: 

“Imagine, if you will, that your life is a pendulum hanging from a chain.  Every breeze of Nature, every comment 
of persons in society, every event of chance and circumstance affects the motion of your Pendulum of Life. 
These are cosmic influences that you cannot control.  

“What you can control is your sense of direction--your guideline and compass--which governs your stability and
minimizes adverse reactions to these cosmic influences.

“With the personal magic of these twelve simple words you can change your life forever by taking control of your
own Pendulum of Life.”

And then I presented these twelve words:

“What I focus upon becomes reality.

 I have the power to choose.”

My article made an impression on someone very dear to me.  Let me share with you below what happened and what I did about it.  
Perhaps you’ll have the same opportunity in your family.


                         A Letter to My Great-granddaughter

                                           My dear viewers:
                                   On October 27, 2012, my posted letter to Reyanna was accidentally deleted.  
                                   Over ten thousand visitors have clicked on this item, so I know it is of real interest.  

                                   Now, I can tell you that you may enjoy this letter on a video I previously made 
                                   simply by clicking on this link:  

                                    If you, too, enjoy this letter (by video), please return to this site and post
                                    a review comment for others to read.  Thank you.  Richard

Richard, I don't know how I missed this one. It is beautiful.
What a wonderful message to pass to your great-granddaughter--a message that would be of value to any young child.
The article shows great wisdom that will live on long after you in the heart of a young woman who loves you.

Your granddaughter's response is priceless,Richard,and I completely
agree with the words that evoked her question and response to your article.
She is blessed to have you as her grandfather,and she knows it.
Continued success~

I think what you gave to your great grand daughter was a true gift, one that may remain with her throughout her life... the awareness of the power to choose. I have always believed that whatever happens to us in life is somehow a result of some choice we made (perhaps even unknowingly). Thus, to be aware of the power of our choices is extremely important. And remember too... that 'what happens to us' is not as important as to 'how we handle it'. This too is a choice.

Richard this letter to your grand daughter
is so authentic, a classic! and so refresingly
uplifting. What a loving heart you have, and
yes Richard continue to remind us of the little
things, that we sometimes forget or take for granted.
You encouraged me today!

We share the same belief. Everything happens for a reason and has a purpose, even if it is found lightyears later. I agree.Good words to live by.

Incredibly wise, inspiring, and to the point, Richard. I certainly agree with your concepts of the pendulum, and focus in life, although I have to admit that I often have let the "pendulum" around me swing my world instead of me taking charge. Your little great-granddaughter is very fortunate to have elders who can get an early grip on your well explained fact that their is a purpose to everything in life................Jerry
