Whenever we have the chutzpah to take the first risky step towards a defined and passionate goal, our path suddenly lines itself with opportunities, resources and helping hands.

Every opportunity for growth and change involves equal parts elbow grease and luck. It seems as soon as we make the choice to put some effort and personal risk into achieving a dream, other factors arrange themselves according.

The week we decide to take a class to learn a new hobby, we wind up having a conversation with someone who is skilled at that craft and would love to share some tips.

The day we decide to start a business, we get a call from a relative who knows a great potential client.

Everyone know that we need to put a lot of effort to achieve towards our goals. It's encouraging to know where will be plenty of help along the way.

Love lightens the burden

I see their soul, and I hold them in my hands, and because I love them they weigh nothing.

We can be guarded when caring for others and helping them with their problems. 

What if their issues drain us?

What if they take up a lot of time?

When we reach out to others in compassion, we discover that the reaching out creates its own energy.

Love provides its own time and resources. The others' burden do not weigh us down when we let love carry the load.

Don't be afraid of having compassion for others, trust that love will fuel our actions.

A responsibility to care

Provision for others is a fundamental responsibility of human life.

Our most admirable moments are in times of trial, when one person sacrifices their time, resources, or safely to put another person first.

We don't have to wait for a major crisis to cultivate that attitude. Every day there are people on the planet struggling.

It's a privilege to reach out with whatever we have. As we help we remember we are not islands, we all need each other.

It is our responsibility to look out for the need of others. As we individually recognize this, we collectively begin to help heal the pain and need around us.

Know your convictions

We make judgment throughout each day, often without considering where our assumptions come from and whether they are grounded in fact or not.

It takes more work to examine our principles and honestly assess our beliefs, but it's much more satisfying. Breaking free from autopilot, we can question our own ideas and release ourselves to adjust and grow.

I am trying to developed well-grounded principles and my own life philosophy. I will test my thoughts and assumptions to make sure they are valid, then take a solid stand on these convictions.

We should know what our convictions are, and stand for them. Upon one's own philosophy, conscious or unconscious, depends one's ultimate interpretation of facts. Therefore it is wise to be as clear as possible about one's subjective principles. As the human beings are, so will be our ultimate truth.


No matter how ‘good’ OR ‘bad’ you think things have been, they can be better. No matter how wonderful you think your theologies, your ideologies, your cosmologies, they can be full of even more wonder. For there are ‘more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy’.

BE OPEN. Don’t close off the possibility of new truth because you have been comfortable with an old one. Life begins at the end of our comfort zone.

Yet be not quick to judge another. Rather, seek to avoid judgement, for another person’s ‘wrongs’ were your ‘rights’ of another person’s mistake are your own past actions, now corrected; another person’s choices and decisions are as hurtful and harmful, as selfish and unforgivable as many of our own have been.

It is when you just cannot imagine how another person could do such a thing that you have forgotten where you came from, and where both you and the other person are going.

And to those of you who think yourselves to be the evil ones, who think yourselves to be unworthy and irredeemable, I tell you this; there is not a one among you who is lost forever, nor will there ever be. For you are all, all, in the process of becoming. You are all, all, moving thought the experience of evolution. That is what God is up to, through us.

Deal with anger

I used to store my anger when I was a child and it affected my play. Now I get it all out. I'm never rude, that's what I told myself, and I’m much focused on the ball. Then it's over. There are appropriate ways for me so express anger. I will find the best way for me to deal with it, so I can move on.
Stuffing our anger isn't a good way to deal with it. “Oh, it's not a big deal," we tell others. "I'm fine," even when it's not true.

There are ways to express anger. I always warned them, "I'm angry with you". In the safest relationship, we should be able to say we feel angry about something, but sometimes the other person isn't ready to handle it.

We may need to wait until later and then release our feelings through athletic activity or artistic expression.

Surprisingly, once we commit to expressing anger, it may take very little time before it dissipates.

When anger comes, start your machinery of calmness going; let your calmness move the cogwheel of peace, love, and forgiveness. With these antidotes, destroy anger.

Be positive...

The person who is "being" happy seems to have time to do everything that's really important, all the money that's needed, and enough love to last a lifetime.
So, we finds we has everything we needed to 'be happy’.....by 'being happy to begin with.

Deciding ahead of time what you choose to be produces that in our experience.

Happiness is a state of mind. And like all state of mind, it reproduces itself in physical form. Act as if you are, and you will draw it to you. What you act as if you are, you become. In other words, “Fake it until you make it.”

Yes, only we can’t really be “faking”. Our actions have to be sincere. EVERYTHING WE DO, DO OUT OF SINCERITY, OR THE BENEFIT OF THE ACTION IS LOST.

God does not ‘reward’ and ‘punish,’ as we know. But Natural Law requires the body, mind, and spirit to be united in thought, word, and action for the process of creation to work. We cannot fool our mind. If you are insincere, your mind knows it, and that’s that.

The mind may not be able to sincerely agree that the actions of the body can bring you that which you choose, but the mind seems very clear that God will bring good things through you to another. Therefore, whatever you choose for yourself, give to another.
