The “I” that is you keeps changing

The “I” that is you keeps changing

The you that started reading this post is different from the person that just read this sentence. We are constantly changing, cells are born and others die, our thoughts change and time marches on, never stopping, always moving forward and never going backwards. Except at times we distract ourselves by focusing on the past. So, to me the question then becomes, “What “I” do I want to be, moment by...

What made you finally say ENOUGH?

I was talking to my agent the other day about my latest book (more to be revealed about that soon). She asked me what drove people to finally say enough and seek a solution. What would make people want to buy a book about living from joy? I had a variety of reason: emotional pain, not feeling loved, loss of a loved one or a job or a dream or …. And then I had a thought. Ask. So I am asking you today. I’d love to hear your answer because then I could write more clearly about the solutions. I might even make a video, do a guided meditation or write a book all about the solution. Just for you! read...

Finding peace

Imagine find this sense of peace with all the issues in your life A man of peace is not a pacifist; a man of peace is simply a pool of silence. He pulsates a new kind of energy into the world, he sings a new song. He lives in a totally new way, his very way of live is that of grace, that of prayer, that of compassion. Whomsoever he touches, he creates more love-energy. The man of peace is creative. He is not against war, because to be against anything is to be at war. He is not against war, he simply understands why war exists. And out of that understanding he becomes peaceful. Only when there are many people who are pools of peace, silence, understanding, will the war disappear. read...

Your wish is my desire

Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything. Napoleon Hill Getting in touch with your passion makes a huge difference. Deciding to live that passion is the key living the life of your dreams. What is your passion? I had no idea at first. I started by making a list of nurturing things. Initially to create that I had to experiment. I would try something and if I enjoyed it I’d add it to my list.  I found curiosity very useful. I’d think about doing something nurturing and then I’d mull it over.  I ask myself some questions. read...

WARNING: Bliss is about to attack

Allow yourself to feel bliss attacking you. Imagine being overcome with profound feelings of bliss. Bliss becomes so overwhelming you have no choice but to allow it to fill your heart and your mind. Fun idea isn’t it? What do you suppose would happen to your life if you walked around with the thought that bliss is haunting you, dogging your every step. No matter what you do you can’t avoid bliss. It slowly and unavoidably becomes your predominate feeling. Interesting mixture of metaphors. Play with it for a while. See what happens. read...

Conscious creation: the illusion of control, is it fear or love?

Are you using your filter system or aligning with your spiritual essence We are the creators of our life experience. We either create that experience from our filter system and fear or our spirit and love. Where we focus our attention makes a huge difference. You are a limitless being. Your thoughts are not real and are usually assumptions about reality that have no basis in fact. So often I watch people embrace the idea that they can create what they want when they want it. They are overjoyed because it is reassuring to think we are in control of our reality. If we are in control then we are safe. That desire for control is fear based.  When you are aligned with your spiritual essence you know you are safe no matter what and there is no need for control. You can easily surrender to what is and savor the...

When you hear the voice of the judge use it to set yourself free

That inner voice Our inner dialog isn’t really the problem. The problem is we listen to that dialog, think it is our true nature and then we believe what we are telling ourselves. We forget that all of our perceptions about reality are based on an illusion. Until we change our perspective generally our assumptions about reality are based on the belief that we are separate and limited. We experience life as if we are our body and our thoughts are real. The world is a vast energy system and we forget that as soon as we start describing it, as soon as we start thinking we have broken our connection with who and what we really are. You are a limitless, infinite, eternal energy presently inhabiting a body. The voice of your inner critic is an indication you have aligned yourself with your mind and not your spirit.  Many years ago I was told that I couldn’t think myself into shifting my awareness but I could take actions that would help me experience and in the process remember who and what I really...

The miraculous nature of life….

This morning I was doing some stretches in my hot tub. It is located under a tin roof and it was raining very hard. The gutters were gurgling with water destined for my water tank. I use rain water for all my water needs. Suddenly I began to think of rain and what a miracle it is, water falling from the sky. Sometimes clouds are fluffy and white, at other time they share their water with the earth. This morning they were gray and dark yet I knew that the sun was shinning just on the other side of them. Rain gives life to the earth and many people are in need of that life giving...
