Even if the path is a little blurry, KEEP WALKING. You will focus in when you know WHAT YOU WANT. Then the picture of your life will be crystal clear. 

Just don't ever give up!

Sometimes it is not easy to see if you are going in the right direction. You thought this was the way to go, but it doesn't seem to be looking the way you thought it would. 

You are wondering what has gone wrong with the astute plan you established for this journey on the earth. Have you veered off your path? Are you surrounding yourself with the wrong people? What could possibly be the problem? 

If it doesn't feel right, then it is not right. 

If everything is not running smoothly, then it is not meant to be. Anytime you hit a roadblock, it is time to leave it alone... just KEEP WALKING...give the dust a chance to settle and let the air clear. THEN you will see what you need to see.

If it doesn't feel right, go left. 

Once you have cleared your mind, changed your focus, and lowered your stress, you will be open... and everything will fall into place. The path will clear and you will be back on track.

You have to give yourself a chance, you cannot do everything. We tend to take on too much and try to live our life in overwhelm. It doesn't work, not for long, it will eventually manifest into disease. So just keep walking, you will focus in when you know what you want.

As any one of us finds our wings, the entire world is lifted....

As anyone of us discovers our self, our purpose on the planet; as anyone of us comes to the aid of our fellow man and/or animal, or extends himself for the higher good... the entire world is lifted. 

We are all part of one another, all interconnected, Everything we do affects others around us. Every move we make, impacts our existence and the reality for us and others. 
Everything in our world is connected to everything else.

"Everyone you meet in your life, even a total stranger, is already intimately connected to you. The idea that we are all separate is nothing but an illusion. We are all parts of a larger whole, like individuals cells in a body."  Steve Pavlina

I think we are all aware somewhere deep inside that we are connected. We have an affinity to certain people. We feel intense connections and attachments. We recognize people we have never met, and feel we have known them all our lives. These people are there to help us pave the way to the fulfillment of our dreams and contribute to our growth. Even less obvious encounters, have an impact. Each and every soul contributes in some way.

You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe.

"I am saddened by how people treat one another and how we are so shut off from one another and how we judge one another, when the truth is, we are all one connected thing. We are all from the same exact molecules."  Ellen DeGeneres

For each situation I encounter today, I choose only to see its positive side!

That's right, you can choose how you wish to react to any situation you encounter. You can take a negative stance and create havoc or you can go with a positive bent, and happily move forward with your life. 

We have a choice. Life is how you see it. It can be a peaceful calm experience every day or an uptight frustrating mess. 

Why not try making a commitment to being positive?  What do you have to lose? Only the stress that all the negative feelings are creating in your body. 

We seems to spend an inordinate amount of time focusing on the negative aspects of our lives, on what is wrong. We can emote on our problems for hours, by phone, text or in person. We are engorged with negativity. All that doom and gloom will eventually manifest into an illness, and is completely unnecessary.

We need to stop complaining about what is wrong and be grateful for what is right.  Take a real look at your life as it stands today. What do you have to be thankful for: the roof over your head, your children, your health , the sky, the mountains, the river. It doesn't matter what you are thankful for, only that you are thankful. You are blessed and being grateful will result in more of those blessings in your life.

"I tell people: if you don't want to get into positive thinking, that's OK. Just eliminate all the negative thoughts from your mind, and whatever's left will be fine." Dr. Bob Rotella

#252 - FUN

Look at these kids! Do you think it may be time to put everything back into perspective. It's summertime Time for fun, freedom and flowers. Get out of the house and have some fun. Do you have any idea how to do that? Do you remember? Take a look at this picture again, it may bring back some insights into what fun is, or perhaps spark a memory. Crazy kids eh? 

This is called FUN and anyone can participate. Don't be afraid of looking stupid, I guarantee that any adults seeing you will either be jealous or grab their kids and join in. Fun is good for the soul, not to mention the attitude. Reduce your stress level; playing is equivalent to a trip to the gym or going on a run. Get down and dirty and enjoy yourself. 

"Having fun and laughing has been proven to be an effective method of coping with stress. Laughter promotes the health of your heart by lowering your blood pressure, improving breathing, and regulating your heartbeat. Laughter also improves your memory, boosts your immune system, helps you sleep better, and prevents obesity.On top of all this, the body releases endorphin every time you smile. Endorphin are neurotransmitters that send a message of confidence and satisfaction to the brain. Laughter also produces serotonin, a hormone that gives you an all-natural high." www.valyaboutenko.com

“If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right.” ~Bob Basso

How something ends up NEVER depends on how much you worry about it.
There you have it.... 

Worry really does NOT contribute in any way to a beneficial finale. It's a waste of your time and energy fretting about the outcome. You can only do your best and then let it go.

In the first place, most of the things you worry about never happen. If you are living for today, in the here and now, there is nothing to worry about.

Worry is from thinking of the future - anxiety from living in the past. 

In the second place, there are things you cannot change. For example: you cannot change weather systems: tornadoes, floods and earthquakes, or wars and government activities. You cannot change what others are doing, that is up to them. There is nothing that you can do about it, they will do what they do, it is their journey. AND things that happened in the past have already taken place, you can't change them. As for the future, don't waste time worrying about it either, you are not there yet. 

You can always prepare yourself for any eventuality, but it ends there. You are responsible for your own well being but beyond that, you need to trust that you are OK. Worry doesn't change anything and gives you wrinkles.

Worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere.

Say YES.....

You may have a desire to say YES to any number of the things listed here, but, to simplify things, we'll use money as the example; it's usually the big one. 

You may have a desire to be rich, in fact it may be of the highest priority on your bucket list. You have done all your work, you know you deserve everything the universe has to offer, but it doesn't seem to make any difference in the scheme of things. It simply doesn't happen, despite the amount of work you've put into manifesting it. 

What is the problem? Doesn't it feel as though you are doing all the right things, and yet your life doesn't change one bit? Saying YES to all these things, means you must open up and be ready to receive. You think you want it, but do you really?

We often block the things we think we really want. We like to imagine ourselves with all the money we could possibly want, able to do anything, help others and, all in all, enjoy life to the fullest. But with that there is a bit of fear. What if I really won the lottery and had all the money I could ever want? The repercussions are huge and scary. It would be a big change in your life. It would take some time to absorb what it actually means for you. Being unprepared, you could lose it as fast as you won it. You would need to re-assess if that was what you really wanted in the first place. You may have simply wanted the feeling of being benevolent and free, and that doesn't take money.

We think we want something so bad, but do we? 
Look into how you really feel, and what you really want.  
Everything you need, you already have.

If you met your exact self as another person, would you like them?

Reflect on this, I mean, really take a look at it. Would you like this person that is you? 

Think about how you are with your friends. Are you fun to be around, helpful, kind, compassionate, and loving? Do you consider yourself funny? Are you available, and willing to try new things? What about loyal? 

If you were to really think about what you bring to the table, how would you rate yourself as a friend? Everyone is looking for the perfect friend and/or the perfect mate. That is a bit of a fantasy, isn't it. Are you perfect? No one is perfect. 

You want people around you that are 'there' for you when times are tough, that support you, no matter what. Are you that person? 

This is the crux of the matter... if you want to surround yourself with people with admirable qualities, that fulfill the above qualifications, you too, must be that person. You can't expect anyone to put up with anything less, it would be a superficial friendship at best. 

So be that person, be the person you want in your life. It all comes back to you, and the original question.... if you met your exact self as another person, would you like them? 

Be a good friend to yourself, be a good person, be the kind of person you wish you had in your life, because who you are is exactly who you've got.

#248   KARMA

Karma is the law of moral causation. 'What goes around, comes around' 
'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you'
There are many people that think that KARMA is revenge. Someone has hurt you and this gives you the right to hurt them. No! Nobody has the right to hurt any living thing. 

KARMA is: You go out of your way for another,  and that action comes back to you; not necessarily by the person you helped, but somehow, some day someone does something for you. You get what you give, good or bad. 

The consequences of someone else's actions are not your concern. Karma is NOT about revenge. The way you react to a situation is your Karma, if someone handles the same situation badly that is none of your business, it is their Karma.  

Karma-Sanskritकर्मmeans action, work or deed; it also refers to the principle of causality where intent and actions of an individual influence the future of that individual. Good intent and good deed contribute to good karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deed contribute to bad karma and future suffering. 

Your Karma is about YOU and only YOU. What YOU do/say returns to YOU in kind. You are not responsible, nor can you control, anyone else's Karma. If YOU want to get more, give more. This refers to anything happiness, love, money, anything. YOU GIVE, YOU GET! That's how the universe works. So be good and do good.

The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions.

Once you open your mind to a new idea, a new experience, a new understanding, you are open, you can't unlearn your new knowledge. 

And by the same token, once you start doing your inner work and walking the path, once you embark on awareness, develop a new perception... you will never go back to what you were before.

You have awakened to some extent. Your mind has changed and you will never be the same as you were before. This insight will open your eyes, and maybe your heart to a new way of thinking, a new way of 'seeing' things. All it takes is a slight crack in your facade, to allow one new idea, one new thought, a change in the way you look at things to change your world. 

"Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change." Dr. Wayne Dyer

Next time something new is directed at you, if you find yourself experiencing a negative reaction; this is the time. Try opening up to something different, at least hear it out; then contemplate it for awhile, google it, investigate it BUT do not immediately negate it. You never know where your most profound, life altering moment will originate.

“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it is not open.” 
Frank Zappa

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” 
Albert Einstein

The Universe in not punishing you or blessing you. The Universe is responding to the vibrational attitude you are emitting. Abraham Hicks

Law of Vibration: Everything in the Universe moves, vibrates and travels in circular patterns, the same principles of vibration  in the physical world apply to our thoughts, feelings, desires and wills in the Etheric world. Each sound, thing and even thought has its own vibrational frequency unique unto itself.

Law of Cause and Effect: Nothing happens by chance or outside the Universal Laws. Every Action (including thought) has a reaction or consequence. "We reap what we sow."

So, the moral is... you are responsible for the vibrations you are emitting. YOU are in charge. If you are whining and crying about how very sad your life is, you are asking the Universe to send you more of the same. If you are happy, joyful and grateful, you receive more love. It seems simple enough. So what is the problem, why are we always fighting it, don't we know by now that we are creating our own reality? 

Life gets in the way. Something monumental takes place, and you are in the middle of whatever feeling that evokes. If it is good, that's great, but if not you are in a low state. Feeling sad, feeling bad, for any length of time is causing you to experience a life devoid of joy. You have had a natural, appropriate human reaction, and it is OK to feel sad for a time, but not for a lifetime. Feel your pain, and then work on letting it go. Use the pain as a stepping stone to joy.

You want to attract joy back in your life. Therefore, send out good vibrations and allow the Universe to bring you the healing, love and abundance that is your birthright.

"There are two basic motivating forces: FEAR and LOVE. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement,+ acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life." John Lennon

Embrace life, said John Lennon. Live life fully, accept things as they are, do not fight the current, flow with the stream. This requires trust in the universe to deliver what you need. 

While you are out there trying to fix the situation, desperately jumping through hoops to end the strife and struggle; fighting what is... you will continue to get what you give out. You will get more struggle and strife, digging yourself a hole. You get what you give. If fear is running your show, you are not sending out positive, loving, accepting messages to the universe, resulting in a bigger hole. Most fears are not real. You must, of course, be aware of danger, but fear is simply manifested by change or some uncertainty in your life... the 'what ifs'

F.E.A.R. False Evidence Appears Real 

You will always get what you need, no necessarily what you want; and that may be the best thing that ever happened to you.

If you are coming from a place of love and acceptance, your life will flow more easily. Give love, receive love. First and foremost.... love yourself and it will naturally follow that you will love every living thing. Embrace your life.

Trust the PATH unseen....

Don't let what happens or what doesn't happen bother you. Life has a way of rearranging perfectly. So what you truly need can come together.

You really don't have to obsess, plan, strategize, and set goals, all the time. All you need to do is simply go with the flow, allow the universe to do it's job. It is not necessary for you to control everything. It is not up to you, the universe is very qualified to take care of things. Too many people act as if nothing in the world could possibly function without them. I am certain that you would lower your stress level, if you allowed the universe to manage it's own business. 

Everyone has their own method of doing things, it may not be your way, but that doesn't make it wrong. It's OK not to have all the answers, just continue on your journey and trust the process. Everything will work out as it is meant to, when the time is right.  

Trust the journey, even if you don't understand it. 

You are in charge of your own destiny. Trust the universe, trust the journey, respect the process. Nothing will change until you do, and everything will happen as it is meant to, when it is meant to. It is the universal order of things. Be patient.

Breathe, Believe and Receive.

In order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you.

You are an accumulation of all of your experiences.  You are who you are, because of where you have been. 

Since you have been working on letting go of all that has held you back; you probably have re-visited the parts of your childhood that you disliked the most. You may have anger and resentment build up due to these memories. 

They may not have been good times, but they shaped you. Some created any negative aspects left in your personality, but others have made you strong and successful. You are a fusion of every experience in your life. Every incident that created you has resulted in the person you see in the mirror.

What do you think of that person? Isn't she/he wonderful?  Part of learning to love yourself is understanding that you are perfect, just the way you are. Everything about you is unique and lovable. You just need to believe in yourself and all you have to offer. 

Everybody on this planet has something to offer. We are all necessary and important. Although, you will find it hard to acquire this attitude if you are still blaming your life on someone or something that happened in the past. You cannot change anything that has already taken place. Accept that it happened, that you survived and eventually turned it around. Look what you made of yourself, how kind and loving you are; even though you came from such a background. You need to be proud of that! It may be a hard climb, but you have done it. 

Leave the past in the past. Be thankful, be grateful and love yourself, just as you are.

As long as you make an identity for yourself out of pain, you cannot be free of it. Eckhart Tolle

Once you start saying 'my', using the possessive pronoun, you are accepting it as yours. Therefore, if you say 'my migraines' or 'my cancer', you are embracing the disease. 

Disease is an intruder in your body and in your life,  do not accept it. You were born perfect and are perfect, disease is self created. Since you created it, you can heal it. Disease does not just happen to you, there is a reason, usually a message, connected to it. It is not the luck of the draw or DNA. Even though your family has a history of migraines, that doesn't mean you have to have them. As with everything, it is your attitude/reaction to a diagnosis that decides the true significance of it. It is a choice. You can choose to be 'scared to death' or see the situation for what it is, a lesson. Eliminate the fear; if you can choose to be scared you can choose not to be. Without the fear, you will realize that you will be OK no matter what takes place. Accept things as they are

You may want to further monitor your thinking and speaking. Saying things like 'you broke my heart, you'll be the death of me, you drive me crazy or that pisses me off', even positive feelings 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 break. Stop it.

And in the same vein; if you worry about a disease, if you are afraid that you might get it, you are attracting it. Anything that you think about, obsess about is what you attract.

Remember, you are perfect, just as you are. LIVE your life, don't anticipate problems. Look for the good in all situations. Find the lesson in every scenario and stay in the here and now, that is all that is real. Right now, this instant, you are OK....go with that.

Lighthouses don't go running all over the island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining. Anne Lamott

And that is ALL you have to do. There is no need to travel the world to seek people to save. 

The only reason to climb the highest mountain and meditate or spend a month in an ashram is to release your own inner demons, not save the lost souls. 

You have the light, the truth, inside. 
You have everything necessary. 
You already are all there is. 
You are an important piece of the giant puzzle of life. Your mission is to be YOU and let your light shine. You are a beacon to many. Your light can show the way through the darkness. 

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.

There is nothing more asked of you than to be yourself, do what you do and live your life. Give and receive love, be kind to every living thing, AND shine your light 

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven." Matthew 5:16

The 3 'mistakes' 

As we travel our path, we happen upon moments of enlightenment. Something resonates with our soul and the light comes on. Usually when this happens we want to share our joy; and this is when these 'mistakes' rear their heads.

1. We assume that people are rational. This depends on where they are coming from. If fear is running the show, you will find that people are not rational. If you were talking about something outside their comfort zone, the fear may be doing the talking and no one is listening. 

2. You can never assume that people are eager, or even willing to entertain change of any kind. They may be more than happy to remain as they are and not risk changing the status quo. Even though you are excited about your recent download of information, it does not mean they are.

3. And finally, you assume that once you have enlightened them on your new found knowledge they will feel exactly as you do. They will choose what you have chosen. Not necessarily so. If they didn't find this information on their own, if they hadn't been seeking this knowledge in the first place, it's quite unlikely that they will just accept your point of view. 

When you find what you are looking for, it's a very exhilarating and begs to be shared. You may find that no one is that interesting in your discovery, and that's OK. They are on their path and you are on yours. Everything happens at the right time, and when you are ready the teacher comes. So, continue on your path, discover new discoveries and enjoy your life; the others are doing their thing and you need to continue to do yours.

The sky isn't the limit; the mind that sees the sky is the limit.

There is no limit, you can accomplish anything you set you mind to. You have the ability to reach beyond the stars, the universe is open to you. The only limits imposed on you are self-imposed.

You may think that you are locked in by dogma, creeds, ideals, principles, laws etc. and if you feel you are, then you are. It is as simple as that. 

You are what you think you are and the only one that can change your way of thinking is you. If you feel comfortable accepting your belief system, then that is what you must do. 

If not, you have choices. The journey usually starts with curiosity, you start to wonder about conflicting ideas, start your research, and begin to open up.

“Religion is belief in someone else's experience. Spirituality is having your own experience." Deepak Chopra

You have infinite wisdom to draw from, if you are so inclined. The choice is yours, always has been, always will be. With your beliefs in tact, you could simply open your mind to possibilities, and you may find something worth investigating further.

"Nothing outside of you can ever give you what you are looking for." Byron Katie

The sky isn't the limit; the mind that sees the sky is the limit....

I stopped explaining myself when I realized people only understand from their level of perception.

True. I find it is the same with most subjects, unless you hit upon a subject that the person you are with is passionate about, it doesn't take long for their eyes to glaze over. Idle chit chat seems to be acceptable, preferably short chit chat, at that. The long intimate discussions are saved only for the closest of friends, or maybe family, that are obligated to listen, at least for a little while. 

Everyone sees things in their own way, derived from their life experiences. You may feel that you have the answer to life, but people only hear what they want to, or are ready to hear. So, something of great importance to you, may come across as trivial nonsense. 

Don't worry if their level of perception isn't at the same level as yours. The fact is, it is only your perception, and although it may be truth to you, it is your understanding, not theirs. So explaining yourself to anyone, really, is a waste of time. It is perceived as a demand to understand your way of thinking and they may have no interest in that. No one likes to be told what to do or how to think.

You have your ideas, and you can do what you will with them, but you don't need to feel obliged to justify yourself to anyone. You don't need any validation; it is your life and you will live it to the best of your ability. No one really understands anyone else anyhow, and you are ahead of the game if you understand yourself.  

"There are some people who could hear you speak a thousand words and still not understand you. And there are others who will understand without you speaking a word."  Unknown

You have a purpose for being on this Earth, that is far more important than anything you have ever dared to imagine....
You can change the world.

You WILL change the world, at the very least, your world and the world of those that cross your path. There will be change due to your presence, your journey will inspire others,  as will your example. You don't have to be a rock star, or find a cure for cancer, to affect people. It is a snowball effect, you change a life and that person pays it forward. Therefore, the entire world will be affected.

"The world is changed by your example, not your opinion" Kahil Gibran

I am not saying that you will make a complete turnaround for each person within 3 feet of you, it is more random and yet, more complex than that, but each person that you are meant to touch, you will.

You are here to do what you do, and that alone is enough. You are important and unique, with a purpose. You may not know what your purpose is today, but you are working on it, nonetheless. You are exactly where you need to be, doing exactly what you need to do.

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi

We are all connected, we play off each other, what happens to me, happens to, benefits or affects you and vice versa.

"Make someone happy, make just one someone happy, and you will be happy too." Jimmy Durante

"When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others." Anne Frank

  • When you finally come around to living in the NOW and accepting what IS . 
  • When you decide that you are who you are and love yourself regardless. 
  • When you KNOW that you will be OK no matter what life hands you. 
  • When you are able to welcome change and remain balanced.
  • When you realize that life is a journey and everyone is following their own path.
  • AND you are well aware that you are never alone. 
This is peace.

The calmness enveloping you now is the peace within. You are able to handle any situation with a new found serenity and gratitude.   

It follows that when you feel this way, it carries through to all your encounters and relationships. You are kind and compassionate to all living things. You have no desire to engage in any negativity. Your life is a positive example to everyone you see.  This is a wonderful place to be, don't you think?

"Peace comes from within. Do not seek without."

I know this transformation is painful, but you're not falling apart; you're just falling into something different, with a new capacity to be beautiful....

Change is inevitable... and usually hard. It feels like you are being pulled into the middle of something that you are not necessarily ready or willing to be in.  

We get comfortable in our comfort zone and often have no desire to change. But some circumstances are beyond your control, and no amount of kicking and screaming will stop change from happening. So, alter your attitude, and make it easier on yourself by practicing acceptance. You, alone, are in charge of your life, and there is no point in fighting change; it will get you no where. Accept, adjust, adapt.. this is how things are in this reality, it is a new beginning.  

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”  Leo Tolstoy

And then there is the flip side.... you want change. You have tried everything to improve your situation and you keep hitting a brick wall. Nothing is working, nothing changes, and you run into the wall again. "Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change." Wayne Dyer. You are continuing to bang your head against the wall and getting nowhere, try a new approach.

"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." Viktor E. Frankl

As you can see, when change happens YOU need to adjust your attitude. AND when you want things to change, YOU need to change your thinking. Common denominator.... YOU and CHANGE....it's up to you. Change the way you look at things, the way you react to change, and accept the here and now.
