A Gift from the Heart: What Does Commitment Look Like?

Editor’s Note:  Tom Smyth, beloved long-time MSIA minister, initiate and MSIA Rep in the Colorado MSIA community, passed unexpectedly into Spirit on March 3rd, 2022. He passed doing what he loved — skiing — in a beautiful, heavenly spot. 

Madonna, Tom’s wife, wanted to share with all of us these words of wisdom Tom wrote years ago. 

Sometime in the future when things aren’t quite right and some of the pizzazz seems to be gone from your life, right then is the time to recommit to whatever it is you are doing.

Remember what commitment felt like?  Being crystal clear about what you wanted to do.  Being on contract.  Willing to do whatever it took.  Not having a clue how it would work out, just knowing that it would.  Actually being the solution, not part of the problem.  Never saying “But,” just sticking a foot forward until you got where you were going.

You had a strength that never faltered, a faith that was overpowering.  Your stories and considerations could never stop you.  You were creative, ingenious, timely, laser-like, excited, successful.  You got results.  You were willing to put your own ass on the line, you made winners out of losers.  Solutions gravitated to you, you were that powerful.  You created Miracles in your own life, Miracles for others.

Through all this, you experienced your own greatness, your own purpose, your own worth.  And from this comes Satisfaction, from this comes Peace that endures.

Given all this, why would you choose to be anything less?  Re-commit to Life at its fullest, experience the greatness that is you, the greatness in others.  It works.

God bless Tom’s Soul in God’s Heart, and Light to his wife Madonna and all who love Tom and miss his physical presence. 

We love you Tom and Madonna!
