Desire vs. Want with the Teachable Spirit

What is the difference between desire and want? What word bridges the gap between desire and want? How can the definition help the teachable spirit? Recently, I have been reading a marvelous book entitled A Happy Pocket Full of Money written by David Cameron Gikandi, who happens to be from Kenya. Among other things, David Cameron Gikandi was a creative consultant on “The Secret,” a 2006 bestselling film documentary based on Rhonda Byrne’s book of the same title. He defines “want” as: to be without; lack to be destitute or needy a defect of character; a fault to be absent to be deficient or lacking to fail; not to be sufficient to fall or come short; to lack When you want something, he states, this is what the universe gives you–absence...

Days for Girls and the Teachable Spirit

What is the single greatest resistance against poverty? What simple tool is employed to leverage this resistance? How did the teachable spirit find out about it? Fleshing out my vision with the inception of my website in 2013, I had originally included prepubescent training and feminine care products as part of the program I desired to implement for the girls of Ingrid Education Centre. As has been the case with much of my work, I had not the slightest idea how I was going to do it, nor a time frame when it would transpire. The teachable spirit knows that God’s timing is best, allowing all things to come to fruition in His time, as the scripture says: He hath made everything beautiful in its time… Ecc. 3:11 One of the values of the teachable spirit...

The Teachable Spirit of Marco

Who is Marco? What was he doing in Kimana, Kenya? How did his teachable spirit help the Maasai? Marco, the Maasai interpreter from Tanzania, wound his way into our hearts through his passion for sharing the understanding of chiropractic care with his fellow Maasai. Leaving his boma in Tanzania to become a tour guide, Marco traveled to Arusha to learn the necessary skills for that vocation: how to drive a vehicle mechanics first aid the animals of the region During a lull in his work in January, Dreamweaver International came to Kimana with a medical team from Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine accompanied by three chiropractors, Dr. Warren Bruhl, Dr. Jeff Kahrs, and Dr. Dave Neubauer, and other medical personnel. Dr. Scott Smith invited Marco...
