- Thoughts for inspired living

This morning while out walking through the neighborhood and observing the colorful Fall foliage and breathing in the crisp air, I was thinking about RCV. I thought I would write a blog post about it because it’s humorous, it’s universal and it needs to be eradicated. I was thinking of what I could use to illustrate RCV and came up with the following line:

“If you expect to win the lottery and you don’t buy a ticket, you have RCV.”

I got busy doing other things and forgot about writing the blog post. The universe moves in mysterious ways. I checked my email and found the following joke from Michele with One “L” in there:

God Loves Blondes

A blonde finds herself in serious trouble.
Her business has gone bust and she’s in dire financial straits.

She’s desperate so she decides to ask God for help.

She begins to pray . . . “God, please help me. I’ve lost my business and if I don’t get some money, I’m going to lose my house as well. Please let me win the lottery.”
Lottery night comes, and somebody else wins.

She again prays . . .”God, please let me win the lottery! I’ve lost my business, my house and I’m going to lose my car as well.”

Lottery night comes and she still has no luck.

Once again, she prays . . . “My God, why have you forsaken me? I’ve lost my business, my house, and my car. My children are starving.     

I don’t often ask You for help, and I’ve always been a good servant to You.  PLEASE let me win the lottery just this one time so I can get my life back in order.”

Suddenly there is a blinding flash of light as the heavens open.

The blonde is overwhelmed by the Voice of God, Himself . . .
“Sweetheart, work with Me on this…. Buy a ticket.”

So, after this cosmic nudge, I decided to do my part in wiping out this planetary scourge called RCV.

So what is RCV? It’s something Dr. Dave Dobson discovered some 20 years ago. Think of it as a medical malady. Most people have it yet don’t recognize the symptoms. It’s easier to spot in others than it is in you. Perhaps a few more examples illustrated by quotes from the ancient Chinese Sage, Lao Tzu would be helpful.

You have RCV if you think a plan is going to come to fruition without you taking any action.

“An ant on the move does more than a dozing ox.”

You have RCV if you’re playing full contact sports after the age of 40.

“Born to be wild – live to outgrow it.”

You have RCV if you’re trying to culturally keep up with your neighbors.

“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.”

There is good news. There’s a cure for RCV. It’s called self inspection. Catch yourself in the middle of it and you are on the doorstep of discovering the cure. You can’t buy the cure at a pharmacy or at GNC but it’s available with a dose of recognition.

RCV is an acronym. It stands for:

Rectal Canal Vision.

All the best,
