As in anything prophetic, looking for the signs of the times is the same as looking for any pivot points or divots in the turf or sand. They have all already happened and are in the past. What is important is your present state of being. In this presence where you are present is the only place in time where the most profound changes can be made within you and the rest of the world. Part of that is where those purple words below come into play.
Aggressive Pivots: (Unedited): 08 Oct 2015:
Genuinely respecting the grass you play upon - no matter the name of the field, the official use of the field or the quality of the field - shows the quality of the person you are. It matters not if you're an amateur, student, novice or professional.
Seeking Pivots: (Unedited): 08 Oct 2015:
Sometimes we become so concerned with the pivot points in other people's lives that we forget about those deep divots of our own ugliness in our own lives. Judging whether a person has had a genuine pivot point in his own life is something which may be important to know. But looking at those who have had a history of failure while ignoring your own or covering up your own divots in life may be very disingenuous.
Divot Crap: (Unedited): 08 Oct 2015:
This is just obvious.
You always make your divots as they were before you screwed up. You make it exactly as if you were never there. With grass, over time, this can happen. But with people, the harm, pain and suffering you have caused may never be completely healed from. Of course this is in degrees and those degrees cannot be defined by you, only by those who were harmed by you.
But as with anything, even grass, you can replace it, water it, fertilize it and add good soil. There will be that time that the harmed grass must do it's part and grow on it's own, even while other unknown things trample upon it on a regular basis.
But look out and observe that special kind of grass, the kind of grass that has been trampled, beaten and ripped up so many times but that still lives and even thrives. These kinds of people may be the kinds of people whom you need around you in some capacity. These are the ones who always seek out the light of goodness, who dig deep into the rich soil. They just don't ever give up or give in or quit or stop or run away. They are ever-present. It doesn't matter what ignorant amateur with prideful degrees slings at them from a dozen yards away, they always seem to continue on. These are the ones you need around you so that you can keep your own pride in check. This is not in reference to bad people who always act badly. You will know these types of people whom I refer to. They have survived great sufferings and yet do for others without any expectant reward. Their smiles are deeply genuine.
