The debilitation of the body,
the deterioration of the body, 
everything that you
would consider to be negative
that happens to your body
always happens for one reason,
and one reason only,
and that is because you are allowing
thoughts that vibrate at a level
that is not in harmony
with your greater knowing.
Abraham-Hicks

You know that love is what we are, it is inherent to everyone, our birthright. Life will throw many curve balls at you, and things will change, you'll develop trust issues, fear and resentments etc. to deal with. Hopefully, as you go through your life, you learn to deal with any issues and come back to a place of love.  

"There are only two emotions: love and fear. All positive emotions come from love, all negative emotions from fear." Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

We are inundated with ads, newspapers, internet, and medical professionals telling us to be responsible for our health and be sure we are tested for every 'disease du jour', we are told what to eat, how to/how much to exercise, what inoculations are necessary for preventative health, especially once we reach a certain age....all under the guise of concern for the public. In fact, they appear to be padding the bank accounts of the medical community and generally instilling fear in the masses. 

You are in charge of whether or not your body deteriorates. Raise your vibration, show some gratitude for your life, and especially for the vehicle you're are doing life in, and how it has served you thus far. Illness is brought on by negativity, worry, and stress, your body may be breaking down because you are not using it, bless your food to nourish your body, and live your life. 

You don't have to grow old just because it is the accepted theory. 
Stay clear of negativity, love yourself, bless your body, your life and bring joy back. Have a life, not a pre-death.

You will be surprised to know that all that you see has been invented by playful people, not by the serious people. The serious people are too much past-oriented--they go on repeating the past because they know it works. They are never inventive.  
OSHO

Inventive: having the ability to create or design new things or to think originally. 

The serious people, you know, the ones that make sure you know that life is tough, that you must do your due diligence, always watch your back, look before you leap and remember that nothing is more important than working hard, making buckets of money and being 'successful'. What they really want is to feel SAFE, so they stick with what they know. These people are stress-inducing to themselves and others.

This 'tried and true' attitude keeps them locked into the past. They feel that 'if it ain't brokedon't fix it so, they don't ever look for an alternate solution, they lack the motivation to try anything new or different, with no incentive to change anything, so they simply continue to bang their head against the same wall day in and day out. These people have their own issues, just as the rest of us do, but you will rarely see them as inventive.... you need to be more of an open thinker to see the unseen. 

"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun." Mary Lou Cook
So it isn't too much of a surprise that toys have been invented by playful people, right, it makes perfect sense. Maybe some of the playful people should get some toys for the serious ones and see where that goes.

"There is nothing
Outside of yourself
That can ever enable you
To get better, stronger, richer
Quicker, or smarter.
Everything is within.
Everything exists.
Seek nothing outside of yourself."
Miyamoto Musashi


You hold all the knowledge you will ever need to fulfill your mission here on earth. You are your own source of anything and everything you desire. The problem occurs when you are not aware of how powerful you are and look to others to satisfy your cravings, wrapping yourself around another person hoping to actualize your dreams. Or, perhaps, you live your life in your head, without giving a moment's notice to what you are truly made of. There is no need to search outside yourself at all, just look within for all the wonders you seek.

"Go within. Use the inner body as a starting point for going deeper and taking your attention away from where it is usually lodged, in the thinking mind."Eckhart Tolle

Do you ever feel like you are bombarded with this same advice about seeking within for answers?  It bears repeating, because this may be the day that your eyes and ears open wide to all the possibilities. 

"You are nothing less than a miracle."  Bryant McGill

We may go to the moon, but that's not very far. The greatest distance we have to cover still lies within us.

Most often it's our belief about 'what is' that is the problem - beliefs we insist on holding & defending without question.

How often do you do things robotically, without any consideration or forethought, simply by rote? We are such creatures of habit that it is not uncommon for us to be asked to explain how a certain procedure is accomplished and not be able to do so, even though we do the same process regularly. Once we know what we're doing, we don't pay any attention to what, or how we are doing it, it's simply habitual repetition.

This is how our belief system works... Belief: an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists. 

Your beliefs have been stockpiled since childhood from various sources, parents, teachers, culture, religion etc. and you have always automatically reacted to certain situations, in the same manner. The mind just refuses to go anywhere else. You believe what you are doing or saying, without ever having questioned or examined it. Until you are in a situation that rocks your world, you may never take a look as to why you do what you do.

It is certainly time to take a look at why you are missing out on so many things in life. Are you running some old record of beliefs that is no longer valid for your life? You need to take a look at all the whole system and question each and every one of them. Figure out which to keep and which to kick to the curb, you will feel a gigantic sense of relief when you do.

It is not necessary to miss out on anything in this lifetime. The only one stopping you is you.

No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys.

Nobody can make you mad, no one can make you anything. YOU CHOOSE to react however you react to what is coming at you. 

Everyone has said, "'they' made me so mad" but 'they' simply do not have that power. 'They' may have memorized the buttons, or installed them for that matter, and "'they' definitely know how to push them. But you choose to get mad. 
You are in the driver's seat, you hold the keys. 

'They' may have struck a nerve, from some past hidden hurt that you have buried, but it still is a choice. You may have gotten mad because that's what you do; you stand up for yourself, you 'don't take nothing from nobody'. but it's still a choice. The point is... it is up to you. It is your life and your reaction will determine your peace of mind.

And on the same subject: watch what you say. Do you want to be crazy? Statements like "you are driving me crazy" are telling the universe that you want/need to lose your mind. The universe will do everything to grant your wish. All the self-depreciating statements made throughout your day, are sending the wrong message. 

Consider monitoring what you say and even what you think. Saying or thinking things like 'you broke my heart, you'll be the death of me, or that really pisses me off,' even a more positive feeling such as; 'my heart is bursting with joy,' is giving the wrong message. You are practically begging some health issue to come and invade your body, you are telling your body that your heart is meant to burst or be broken. Stop it.

The moral of the story is: This is your life, you are in the driver's seat... do not give your keys to anyone else.

What I believe about me is my business: what you believe about me is your business Byron Katie

"They love me, I say "Thank you." They hate me, I say "Thank you." It's their story. What do I have to do with it?" Byron Katie

So there you are, that's how it works... "What other people think of me is none of my business"
You can never depend on anyone else to tell you who to be, how to act or what to do. Everyone else has their own experiences and will project those on you, and that is not who you are meant to be. You are an original, and perfect just as you are.

Whose business are you in? AND/OR who are you allowing to run your business?
"There are only three kinds of business in the universe: mine, yours, and God’s. 
Whose business is it if an earthquake happens? God’s business. 
Whose business is it if your neighbour down the street has an ugly lawn? Your neighbour’s business.
Whose business is it if you are angry at your neighbour down the street because he has an ugly lawn? Your business."
Byron Katie

"The only opinion in all the Universe that is of true importance to you is your own. And your own opinion of you affects the entire Universe."

SERENITY is not freedom from the storm,
it is PEACE within the storm.


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Serenity will be yours when you are able to accept things as they are, not how you want them to be. 

Accept the things that you cannot change: There are so many things that crop up in day to day life that we are unable to do anything about. So many things that we just have to accept, we cannot fix them. Things, such as traffic jams, taxes, line-ups, floods, hurricanes or anything that takes place in the past or the future. We can prepare for some things, but we cannot change them. We can't let these things upset us, just as we can't worry about things that have previously happened, haven't happened yet, or are out of our control.

Courage to change the things I can: The things you CAN change are anything to do with you. Your weight, your health, your mind. If you owe someone an apology, or you need to correct an error that you made; you can do that. If you want to help at the soup kitchen, climb a mountain, or do something that makes you feel good. Do it.

Wisdom to know the difference: Knowing what you can do something about and what is none of your concern is not always easy... it's a fight your own battles thing. If it doesn't concern you, leave it alone. And once you master the art of leaving it alone, you also have to master the art of letting it go. Don't obsess about what the government is doing, or whether or not it will snow in December. Once you discern what you can change and let the rest go, you will be on your way to a serene, calm, happy life.
