Destiny

We are in service to Humanity by serving ourselves. Please note this isn't the same as being selfish or egotistic, rather a ripple effect of self-care and self love overflowing inside out.

Our Power resides not in controlling each other, but rather in allowing each other to be through our Innate Freedom.

"Live and Let Live" can only be experienced on a daily basis as we respect each other.
May we-
Live and let live
Love and let love
Breathe and let Breathe.

When the mind respects the Heart, the Heart takes care of the Spirit and Body. Listen to the music in the cords of your Heart and Joy will follow you like your shadow.

Depends which perspective we are considering. The middle path is healthy for our Spiritual Balance, yet in the corporate world it is often the mediocre path. Every action has its consequences, hence requires our undivided responsibility.

Challenges express themselves to us in diverse ways. Sometimes directly looking us in the face, while at other times they appear camouflaged and present themselves to us in small doses.

Our destiny is not determined by where we came from or what materialistic things we were given, but rather is determined by the choices we make every moment with whatever is at hand and by where we choose to go from Here.

YOU decide your own worth. We receive the respect we give our Self. Decide and don't look back.

Knowing...


To me one way of knowing when you are wrong is when you are able to look at something in its own light and not through your own biased preconceived ideas.

The difference would be that it will make be fruitful one way or the other

The change will be your ability to grow, mental progression, strength to accept rest of the humanity as one and not as non Muslim, Hindu Jew Christian atheist etc, but as human beings.

When you learn something new it can either nullify what you knew before if it was wrong, or it can enhance the knowledge you already had

Stupid is a choice, not to have knowledge is not making one stupid, but not WANTING new knowledge is stupidity

Nothing wrong if the new info is wrong too, if the truth is looked for, IT WILL FIND YOU (sooner or later)

Growth and learning are luxuries for those who put aside their preconceived ideas and always listen, read, search to LEARN and not to REFUTE others.

My thoughts only feel free to agree, oops I mean disagree: D

See, if I have a stone and call it apple with A B C D F G H vitamins, it will not produce these vitamins no matter how strong my belief is...

The reality won't change because of one’s belief; the reality will serve its purpose no matter what-

That’s why belief is for religious "lakeer ke fakeer", sheep, reality are for progressive humans, and why the Quran challenged everyone else

No one way....


Since there is no One Way to find happiness, why not find it the way that appeals most to you? 
Why not follow your passion - even if others tell you that you are crazy for trying it?

Try something that you could fail at. The voice of caution knows nothing of real joy. 
What joy is there in doing what there was no doubt you could do? 
Where's the excitement in that?

Life is an adventure, feel or use all your senses when experiencing the road you are walking! I've done that all through my life and have enjoyed every moment of it, through bad and good!

Once you are ready to truly devote your days and times to what your soul came here to do, you will find your life unimaginably enriched.

Indeed, life will not, it will never, make sense to your mind. The secret is to see life from the soul's perspective; to add to the mind's experience the soul's wisdom, awareness, and total knowing.

You cannot let go of anything if you cannot notice that you are holding it. Admit your 'weaknesses' and watch them morph into your greatest strengths.

Just when it looks like life is falling apart; it may be falling together for the first time. The nice thing about things falling apart is that you can pick up only the pieces that you want...

Before you think, do, or say anything -- imagine what it would be like to receive what you are sending. Then, go one step further. Decide ahead of time what you would like to receive...and then send it.

Freedom is Who You Are. Any frustration you have is simply the result of wrong thinking; nothing in the Universe is working against you. Given Who You Are, this is impossible.

Life is about your soul, not about your body and not about your mind. When was the last time you paid attention to your soul?

Life will resolve itself in the process of life itself. Let the moment play it out. Life knows what it has in mind and all is well.

There is no 'right way' to do anything; there is only the way you are doing it. Always remember: Life begins at the end of your Comfort Zone.

This very moment someone thought of you, and of a kindness you have done. You are loved.

A Kiss????

Ah hush!

A kiss, when all is said, is - what?
A compact sealed, a promise carried out,
An oath accomplished and a vow confirmed.

The rosy dot upon the "i" in "loving"
A secret for no ear, but for the lips

The velvet humming of an amorous bee;
The endless moment of infinity;

The heart's communion cup that taste of flowers
The breathing in a little of the soul
When the pure spirit rises to the lips.

Ah hush.


Life is a GIFT...

Enthusiasm is the greatest asset in the world. It beats money and power and influence. It is no more or less than faith in action.


The truth is that you already are what you are seeking. From my personal experience: Remember, you cannot get what you want while observing the lack of it.

Every single action has universal consequences, the world conceived as a whole where everything is interconnected influencing each other.

And that energy is a force that runs through everything be it inorganic matter, organisms or human consciousness.
The universe is always working. Allow it to work for you.

Life will not, it will never, make sense to your mind. The secret is to see life from the soul's perspective; to add to the mind's experience the soul's wisdom, awareness, and total knowing.

You and me, and life – we are just like the Muppet Show.

The world needs you now.

More than you know.
More than you can imagine.

The world needs your gifts.
Your heart.
Your compassion.
Your understanding.

Your ability to listen
To speak
To feel
And to act.

The gifts that only you can give,
In the way that you and you alone can give them.

The time for holding back is over.

The time for believing that you are not...

I show you mine and you show me yours...

This is how feelings and trust are communicated, someone has to go into the cave first, and shine a light.

What you experience at any given moment is what you previously have attracted vibratingly. 

Form is not created out of nothing, but out of everything. 

So in every space and time lies infinite potential, and it is your unconscious or conscious focus and alignment that generates the experience. 

As such everything is real. Go first, and see how the universe responds.


- Embracing the goddess energy within yourselves
will bring all of you to a new understanding and valuing of life
a vision that inspires you to live and love on planet earth.

Like a priceless jewel buried in dark layers of soil and stone
earth radiates her brilliant beauty into the caverns of space and time.
Perhaps you are aware of those who watch over your home
and experience it as a place to visit and play with reality.

You are becoming aware of yourself as a Gamemaster.

Imagine earth restored to her regal beauty
stately trees seem to brush the deep blue sky
clouds billow to form majestic peaks.
The songs of birds fill the air creating symphony upon symphony
The goddess is calling for an honouring of what she allows to be created
through the core-mystery of the blood.

Those who own her planet are learning about love.

From the song Gamemaster by Matt Darey.

You have the POWER!


Hey you out there! Everything we do is by choice. The choices we make decide where we end up.

The statement "I have no choice" is a lie.

Be honest with yourself as to why you are choosing to do a particular thing. Then, do it gladly, knowing that you are always getting to do what you want..

You can choose. You always have the power to choose.

But the point is----what determines one's choices?

If I were to choose an option A over B option, what is it in me that have made me do that?
As opposed to someone who would have chosen B over A?
Is it inborn, our conditionings, our past, our memoires, our sense of right and wrong, our culture, our ambitions’ and hopes, our fears?
We can surely make a choice every time, there is no doubt about that, but what is making us make that choice?
 Is that power free or not? That’s what we need to find out for ourselves.

Sometimes we are our prisoners of our own fear. As a result we make our own beds. You have to take control...

 Everything that has ever happened in our life is by our choice. When we accept this fact, we have now become the CAUSE of our life. By saying I have no choice; all we can do is live in the effects. That is free will! It's your choice!

It took me a LONG while to embrace this concept in my own life, before I understood my own creative power, I felt a victim of circumstance. But when I looked around and didn't like what I saw... I would ask... WHY? 
Why does this or that happen "to" me? Now... when I look around and don't like what I see... I do not lament the situation... 
I reside in gratitude with the knowledge that I can always choose something different!! And since I've come to understand this... the more I look around... the less disappointed I am... because TODAY I make choices that make me FEEL good and happy!!! WOOT WOOT!!

It's always the knowing that counts. We act and either "sees" what is happening or not. That's the choice. We have a choice in how to respond or what to agree to -- or to say 'no' to every single time.

I am that I am, that I am You are

 I want to Fuck life. 


I want to Fuck the world – truly.


 I want to make love with all its beautiful forms and situations.


 Indulge in the darkness and smile at its ambient light. 


To live on the edge, to live in the present moment - with true purpose, free of fear.


"Passion", the only way to live & amp; experience life! I shall exude it well my friend =0)


 I will be part of a community of the most loving,


 inspirational and fun people on the planet, 


create a service to the world that my grandchildren will tell their children about, 


fly first class everywhere with my beautiful love partner and team,


 experience amazing health and 


move through every day with humor and gratitude. 


And so it is.

"Birth is a sign of inner transformation, a shift in consciousness that manifest externally as rebirth or renewal, the arising of a New Earth.

The sign is about the effortless balancing of inner and outer, the removal of resistance and the ending of struggle."

Perseverance.......


Trust your timing, and be curious.



You always get what you need.

If what you want is not available now, then there must be an excellent reason for this.

Shift focus to something that is working for you, go for general wellbeing, find appreciation and the specific challenge will resolve in due time.

If you don't have a reason to be happy, make one up.

Always live in the question!

And if things seem to be going all "wrong," flip that polarity with a question like,
 "What's right about this that I'm not seeing?" or
 "What's right about this situation that I'm refusing to know, see, receive or perceive?"

Then ask the Universe,
"How does it get any better than this?"
Totally shifts the energy!

What has to happen has to happen whether you like it or not...

Locks are not manufactured without a Key as such GOD did not create you without a solution to overcome...!

We can always grow from the thought things we go thru not just the easy ones.

It makes us stronger and prepares us for other things in life!

Our happiness depends on the habit of mind we cultivate. 
So practice happy thinking every day. 
Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast.

Awakened Strength.....

The Basis of Your Life is Freedom;
The Purpose of Your Life is Joy.
You are loved.
All is well.

Things are how they are, but I would allow people to decide for themselves how they should be. This is certainly not how I believe thing should be.

Obviously similar disasters are happening elsewhere around the world, but it is never an excuse to murder innocent people.

My thoughts tonight are with all of the victims and their families. Let's allow ourselves to feel shock, grief, loss and sadness, and let us not be overtaken by irrational thoughts and vengeance.

Life is not something to be left forgotten on the windowsill of habit by you and me.
Life is the rapture of a hand that harvests.
Life is the taste of the first black fig in the acrid mouth of summer.
Life is the dimension of a tree in the eye of an insect.
Life is the moth's experience in darkness.
Life is a strange feeling that a migrating bird has.
Life is the whistling of a train that echoes in the sleep of a bridge.
Life is watching a flowerbed from the sealed window of an aeroplane. Is the news of the launch of a rocket to space, touching the loneliness of Moon, The notion of smelling a flower on another planet.
Life is washing a dish.
Life is finding a penny in the brook of the street.
Life is 'square root' of mirror.
Life is flower 'to the power' of eternity.
Life is 'multiplication' of earth by beatings of our hearts.

I´m certain that the families, who now face the greatest loss of all, do not feel "a soft well-being, elegant co-creation or  those things are as they should be".

I´m sorry for their loss and I hope that they too, at some point, will be able to celebrate the contrasts of life again.

A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us.

It might happen when we show a new flash of healthy assertiveness during a conflict with someone who is refusing to hear our position.

That’s what we call Awakened strength!

If we understand that then we will be full of free do, joy and love, but if we will run towards of this all they will run from us.

Actual miracles is that if we just understand and we will got all to this situation we call consciousness!

Just be....

I’ve asked myself again and again, ‘what kind of a mother I want to be, what kind of a wife am I and what kind of a life I’ll have?’

 Courage, courage is what I kept getting!


I will seek safety first, last, and all the time in the
constant inner thought of God-peace.

I will wipe the dream fears of disease, sadness, and
ignorance from the soul’s face of silence, with the veil of Divine peace.


I am protected behind the battlements of my good conscience.
I have burned my past darkness. I am interested only in today.
There is a right solution to every problem.
have within me the wisdom and intelligence to see this solution, and the courage and energy to carry it through.

God is within me and around me, protecting me so I banish
the gloom of fear that shuts out His guiding light and makes me stumble into
ditches of error.

Secret fear creates tension and anxiety, and brings ultimate
collapse. We must have faith in our ability, and hope in the triumph of a
righteous cause. If we do not posses these qualities, we must create them in
our mind through concentration. This can be accomplished by determined and
long-continued practice.


First, we must identify our defects. If, for example, we are
lacking in will power, let us meditate upon it, and through conscious effort we
shall be able to create strong willpower in ourselves.


If we want to relieve ourselves of fear, we should meditate
upon courage, and in due time we shall be frees from the bondage of fear.
Through concentration and meditation, we make ourselves powerful and able to
focus our attention.
Continual practice will enable us to concentrate our energy
upon a single problem or a single responsibility without any effort. It will become second nature to us, possessed
with this new quality; we shall succeed in our life’s undertakings, both
spiritual and material.

Gossip or just being honest

"Gossip speaks volumes of the character of its speakers." OR " honesty without compassion and understanding is not honesty but subtle hostility."

When we hear someone gossip, we begin to wonder more about the one who's gossiping than the one who is the subject of the gossip.

Is any of this is true? Is this person trustworthy? Will they turn around and gossip about me,too?

We became guarded around them, careful never to discuss anything about ourselves that might make us vulnerable.

Gossip isn't productive.
In our families, social circles and workplace, we can call gossip what it is and ask the speaker to stop. A simple "I don't want to talk about it," usually does the trick.

We should avoid gossiping, and try to speak up if it seems like a conversation is turning into gossip.

'Well, I was just being honest,' we mutter when someone seems hurt by a harsh observation we make. Honesty is the best policy, but we shouldn't use that as a cop-out to justify acting mean-spirited.


If we have difficult words to speak, we need to do it in a way that honors and respects another person's feelings. If we don't have time for that, we certainly don't have time for cleaning up after the offense we're about to cause.

When you want to be honest about a sticky issue, you will look closely at
your motives.

Do you really want to help the other person or just using this as an opportunity to hurt them?

You'll have to wait for a constructive attitude and can speak with genuine concern.

A GOOD ADVICE...

1. the most selfish one letter word "I"...  Avoid it


2. the most satisfying two-letter word "WE"... Use it

3. the most poisonous three-letter word "EGO"... Kill it

4. the most used four-letter word "LOVE"... Value it

5. the most pleasing five-letter word "SMILE"... Keep it

6. The fastest spreading six-letter word "RUMOUR"...Ignore re it

7. The hardest working seven-letter word "SUCCESS"... Achieve it

8. the most enviable eight-letter word "JEALOUSY"... Distance it

9. the most powerful nine-letter word "KNOWLEDGE"... Acquire it


10. the most essential ten-letter word "CONFIDENCE"... Trust it. :)



Your perception is your reality....


We are life itself; there is no reason to separate life from what we are.

The best argument you can make is no argument at all. Do not argue with life, or with anyone in life. Life presents itself perfectly in every moment, and every person believes his or her point of view to be valid and 'right.'

Sometimes it’s great fun to argue, at least for a little while. Done in the right perspective, much can be learned. That’s an interesting argument I say, but wouldn't life be boring if we all agreed with one another and had no arguments? 
Surely that is the spice of life! Idealistic maybe but unrealistic in my opinion.

I tend to argue too much, argument for improve, not for win a fight. I often learn a great deal from people with another POV. I think there is a place for argument but like fine wine it has to be cultivated and gracious.

Whatever is happening at any given moment, it’s happening exactly as it ought to......so if someone is arguing with you and telling you there perspective, try to remember that this is their perspective at that time, it may not be yours, but we don’t have to argue or agree, we just have to accept that they have a right to view their point from whatever perspective it comes from.

If we try and remember this, there would be no need for arguments as we wouldn't feel the need to defend ourselves and our perspectives/point of view. Whatever is happening is happening and I believe for a bigger reason than is presenting itself at that moment, denying it, closing our eyes and ears to it won’t set us free, merely it will contain us and close us down and love stands no chance of entering any of us when we are like this.

One must argue but with passion, credibility, and logic. One trait of a developed and highly conscious person who is not in the grips of ego is the ability to also see when you're not right and be quick to correct yourself.
Be who you are. Also be proud on it, you’re not doing wrong, never.

Instead of arguing, simply live and act according to your values...blaze a path and let others follow once they see the beauty of your actions.

The best way to change how things are going in this world is to be joyful and loving in the face of hatred and "evil". Plant the seed of love and maybe it will take root. Even if it doesn't, you can say you made a good choice.

Peace.

In everything you do, your love shines through.



All the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind and I don’t need Eckhart Tolle to tell me that!

Don't get hung up in the theory of words; consciousness, awareness, being, non-duality, karma, bliss, destiny, love, enlightenment etc. It's all life, it's all you – Now, what do you want to do?

A decision should not be in terms of what you like and what you do not like, it should be in terms of what works.

What works better for me if it 'feels' right. That's the beauty of following one's own connection with Source - wise teachers don't always have wise answers - but connecting with the spirit within always leads one rightly - no should here!

If I know there's interference, and what I did last time did not really work, I override the impulse and do what I know I need to do. It's like going for a walk or ride; it always feels best afterwards.

So by start practicing your wellness, start practicing your joy, and don't trade your joy for pleasure because they're not the same.

To FORGET and to FORGIVE??????




At what point, do we forgive someone?

Of course each instance where forgiveness is wanted or needed is different, the level of wrong, the extent of the transgression against us, determine our frame of mind when contemplating it.

I have always thought that some things in life are completely unforgivable – still do actually. 

Forgiving and moving on is not for the person who wronged us, it is for us. By holding onto anger, hurt and sadness, are we sealing off a critical part of ourselves that really needs to be healed? 
So I ask: 
By forgiving someone - are we giving them the power to hurt us again? Or are we giving ourselves the power to move on?

You cannot help those, who do not want it.

As I have journeyed through life, I have been hurt and I have been wronged - just like you and everyone else in this world. 

The lies and manipulations, I carry with me today. I believed everything she told me. I believed her when she made claims against others. I fought battles for her. I cried for her. I sold my soul, my very being, to be the best that I could be.
Over and over again.

I have come to some conclusions – including now knowing that there are some things in life that will never make sense. Some parts of life that the only thing you can do is choose to make peace.

Forgiveness means letting go of the past. It means letting go of the hurt and the anger and moving on. When you forgive, you in no way change the past – but you do change the future.

I want to get to that point when I can think of the happy times that there were at times, and release the anger and the sadness. I know these dark emotions have no place in the future. I think I finally get that in forgiving her, I can release the power of the memories that hurt, that fill me with anger and sadness.

Forgiveness, real honest forgiveness, doesn’t happen overnight. I find that with each day, with each thought of her, the anger has lessened a little, but the sadness, not so much. I will know when I am there, as you will. Forgiveness is not on a schedule – but on your own timing, on your own terms. Thankfully I am really starting to believe in forgiveness – which it is something that eventually needs to happen!

I will never forget. But there will come a point when I forgive. For her, for myself, for the future.

FEAR....


The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear. – Aung San Suu Kyi

Why does fear arise when everything is going great?

Fear is the most solid of all energies. And importance is based on the fear of loss. If something is important, it is important because we don't want to lose it.

So, to really trigger those things that are holding us back, we can ask:
What's important to me?

And then process the fear behind losing that thing/person/situation/dream.
You see, we have been taught that it is the important things that give meaning to life and if we lose all the importance from our lives, then there will be no reason to live.

Yet, it is just those "importances", no matter how important, which are the "attachments" that keep us stuck in a low vibration level existence. – Inelia Benz

The interesting thing about this happiness equation is that there is no adding. Joy is, Love is – it is your natural state. 
Your job is to reduce the fear, so that the light of love can shine through.

No adding; that is a big challenge...us human beings we collect, contain, hold on to a lot of shit...and we also adds ownership, need of control and the fear of losing, into our love. 
A pure and joyful love = love-fear

By lessening the fear of loss, you are able to appreciate and love more fully everything that is important to you, because the only certainty is the impermanence of all things.

Would you agree that the first step to reduce fear is to acknowledge its presence?
The more you are aware of the fear, the less affected you are by it?
And the more you become aware of the love that you can give or receive?
That actually pretending that you do not experience fear makes it stronger, gives it 'hidden' power over you?
This way the important can stay important but love gets stronger?
Why shouldn't important be important after all?
Why deprive it of its meaningfulness?

 The more something is important the more grateful you can feel - the more grateful you feel the more joy you invite into your life.  I don't know - I'm only asking your opinion... As this is my experience through my travel - travel in life.

If you have enough love and support coming at you, you are going to start opening. And if you open, you are going to meet your fear. Waking up is a very scary thing. So scary that most people do not do it.

The stages of awakening that I've gone through that I felt most powerful were either preceded by or followed by enormous fear. As I allowed more love and heart in, I had to feel at a whole new level the fear.

Just when you think life and love for yourself and others is going well, fear raises its head to test those feelings, the fear/trials are here to test us in our journey on our own paths, your feet lag when heartbroken but strong steps are needed in these times



Fear of success?
Success often means greater responsibility, expectations by others for us to duplicate that success again and again. These can be a great source of fear in people.

Fear of happiness is common. Many find it easier to accept failure because we are often taught to prepare for the worse. It is not uncommon for people to have planned a,b, c... z in case things go wrong. We have to learn to prepare for the best as well.

When everything goes well and we start feel fear shows that we care, we love and we appreciate so much what we hold and we start be afraid of not losing it ...that moment is when we start loose what we love... our actions becoming stressed and full of worries that eventually bring opposite results

Because change is inevitable in life and it is ok to wish for it when things are not good, but if things are so good, why would we want it. We would then only desire further development of good. Hence the fear.
Maybe not over, just different, new levels, new energies, it's all in perspective and what you tell yourself that you want it to be.
You can also see this in the world situation today, as consciousness expands and a cycle is ending, there's a cleaning process, energy intensifies and some events need to be played out before we move on. 'Bad' things are not bad things unless you choose to view them as such. It's a choice point.

Remember nothing has inherent built-in meaning, everything is neutral. You assign meaning. If you assign the meaning you prefer, the event can provide the effect you want.

The greatest power requires the lightest touch.
There are "bad things" and "bad phases" however we want to view it...BUT....perhaps their purpose is ultimately good. Rejuvenation, new found appreciation and preparation for new phases. 
Also we know that when things are “bad" that at some time we can expect the change and it will usually be a big change.
I learned that there is nothing as bad or as good; these 2 are the one and the alike. And personally I don’t care if the fount is rusty as long as the water coming out of it is clear -and is all it matters

To be good or bad....


I am such a slat for authority, so you don’t get to tell me what to do or how to behave. I’ll determine who deserve my respect thank you very much.

I really don’t always have to be super nice. Sometimes I have to show my tantrum to others, so that I can sort out who can accept me at my worst. I always have a nice out by the way ;-)

I may not be the best, but I’m definitely NOT like the rest ;-)

You don't have to shout it out to the world about something that's good in you. If it exists and it's true it will shine its light through all that you do.

So keep doing the good and do it without any expectations of being recognised or appraised. It will all by itself spread out to the world. Let the recognition come to you without asking, that is when it's truly gratifying.

Be humble, believed in that simple concept. In my troubled times, struggling to find silence and peace to keep on with my life, I try to stay humble for all the gifts of my life.

At any given moment you have a number of things that are available to you to take action on. Doesn't matter what they are. Just pick the one that has the most excitement that you have the greatest degree of ability to take action on, and act on it to the best of your ability until you can take it no further, with absolutely zero expectation.

Lastly follow your heart, but don’t forget to take your brain with you.

The Ten Rules For Being Human



Rule One - You will receive a body.
You may love it or hate it, but it will be yours for the duration of your life on Earth.

Rule Two - You will be presented with lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called "life". Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or hate them, but you have designed them as part of your curriculum.

Rule Three - There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of experimentation, a series of trials, errors and occasional victories. The failed experiments are as much as a part of the process as the experiments that work.

Rule Four - The lesson is repeated until learned.
Lessons will be repeated to you in various forms until you have learned them. When you have learned them, you can go on to the next lesson.

Rule Five - Learning does not end.
There is no part of life that does not contain lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

Rule Six - "There" is no better than "here".
When your "there" has become "here" you will simply obtain another "there" that will look better to you than your present "here".

Rule Seven - Others are only mirrors of you.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.

Rule Eight - What you make of your life is up to you.
You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you.

Rule Nine - Your answers lie inside of you.
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

Rule Ten - You will forget all this at birth.
You can remember it if you want by unraveling the double helix of inner-knowing.

Discipline ^__^


 It is the beginning of everything you want in Life. Develop it, practice it; from both your heart and your mind. It's one of the keys that can lead us everywhere in life.

Discipline can be self-control to influence an outcome; it can also be to release all control of the situation, and choose your response. Even discipline screams for an opposite to make a balance.
This is Responsibility; the ability to respond consciously, not just react impulsively based on an old pattern or belief system.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lay our growth and our freedom.

Discipline practiced with joy will create the fastest avenue for success there is. We often think of discipline with negative connotations but its definition really meant to practice a habit that roots out unnecessary and self defeating behaviour, but it’s the joy that creates the success....!!!

Ask why. Develop the why. Once the why is strong enough, the how will naturally present itself.
If you can't build the why strong, it's just not that important to you; the negative consequences do not yet create enough suffering for you to choose change, and you are unable to believe clearly enough the positive benefits of making the change.

It's all about the ‘why’.

The WHY is EVERYTHING, difficult to see when clouded by emotion and patience is crucial, it clears the path, settles the ego.

When you do good, you feel good. When you do bad, you feel bad. Could it be that simple?
Sometime you believe that you are doing good, but when you feel bad, then you realise that you are in a wrong way......!!!

This shows awareness and allows you to make a new choice. If you felt bad, you were probably trying to please someone else, and did not get the expected external response. Because if you do something that you know is good for you, it feels good. It is that simple.

We don’t have please everyone around us or seeking approval for that matter....just do what we can with what resources we have and move on. This is life...there is too many things waiting for us to do...we don't have time to please everyone around us.

What's your take???




Even 'the bad' in life contributes to the good. It is not an easy concept to master. But I do feel like I am a catalyst and a conduit for change.

Life is in us but the illusion is that we separate ourselves from the drama. To change the drama we need to change. We are the solution, the absolute solution, the only consciousness.

How do you ride the tides of all events? If you're in a situation that you find painful, how do you ride the tide?

Life is sacrifice, we must keep fighting till the end of time, even though sometimes we feel tired but it can’t make u hopeless.

Try finding the good in a given situation. There's always something you can find. People tend to focus on their rigid idea of what things should be rather than what is, which leads to suffering.

Focus on the thought of why and how and what should've happened but then you shall find the higher good of the situation and bounced rich back very quickly.

You are the creator of your thoughts. The mind is a tool that the spirit uses. Don't be a puppet of your mind, decide how you want to feel then look for all the things you have to be grateful for.

In nature, there is decay, which allows for birth and new growth. All things happen for good, no matter what society say, because that’s all God is... Good!

My happiness is easy to wear, fits perfectly, looks good in all situations, and feels comfortable. What more could I need?

One You Come into the light


All is well, just remember that, especially when it's not. Life has a way of taking care of itself. Circumstances don't matter. Only your state of being matters, be bad, but in a good way.

Pay attention to the vibration of your own voice, and feel the truth within it. Say it with certainty and excitement in a calm way.

Now, what state of being do you prefer?

Choose, and behave towards the circumstances that way. This will shift you reality.

Remember that the first manifestation is always an emotional one; let that be enough and all else will follow.

So I did all the things I know are good for me. Breathe, eat a healthy dinner, be in presence and accept what is, go running in nature, find beauty and appreciation, call a friend, drink water, get a massage, meditate, humour, get a good night sleep, and breathe some more…

Opening to acceptance, gratitude, seeing the value of the experience, giving meaning and moving on.  In retrospect everything is relative.

Ultimately peace was found once I let go of all control, in total surrender.

Time Out




Your level of energy might influence the way you go about your day today. Perhaps you notice that you don’t have as much energy as you would like, which may make you feel like withdrawing from the world and spending time alone.

Using this time to reflect upon your life and what it means to you could make your day much more productive and may reenergize you in the process. This time alone could be of great value to you. If you can, you may want to journal about what you feel today and how that impacts your life.

Should you find that your thoughts veer toward the negative, you might consider the positive lessons that are part of your current experiences and how the information you are getting from these experiences can help you reach greater realizations about yourself.

Being alone allows us to have the time and space to reflect on what our lives mean to us. When we are with others, our thoughts can become sidetracked since we could take on their concerns instead of paying attention to our own.
Giving ourselves time for serious soul-searching—whether through meditation or journaling—lets us dig more deeply into our present feelings and assess how those feelings manifest in our lives. And this makes us more aware of our truest thoughts and needs.

By thinking about yourself today and how events in your life impact you, you will discover deeper meaning in your everyday existence.
I've decided that it takes "courage" to own your own stuff....especially when it relates to things that others do that annoys us... A sure sign that we do it as well, otherwise it wouldn't annoy us...

The comforting thought is that we're ALL going through this, we're just at different stages and once we totally ACCEPT, that we are all overcoming behaviour traits, it becomes easier. Once we've worked through "jealousy" for example, we can observe others "still going through it", and we can feel compassion, because we know how awful and real the feelings ARE AT THE TIME

"Keep your heart open to dreams. For as long as there's a dream, there is hope, and as long as there is hope, there is joy in living."
Live this day as if you were given super powers to succeed at everything you do.

We spoke when we should have listened, walked when we should have waited, judged when we should have trusted.




Most people never speak from the hearts because they cannot locate it...

The truth is, most people don't want to have to think, it seems to be too stressful to think. All most are doing is following someone else's rules, “you have obeyed”! 

I don’t discuss politics and religion. Oh and I don’t vote either because I’m not allowed to, I’m too young ;-)

The problem is trying to pick a politician to vote for is like trying to pick a hooker at a brothel...because you know either way they are dirty and it will cost you later.

Our votes are meaningless, and our opinions, the opinions and desires of "the governed" are ignored to favour the wants of the very very few. 

What do we do with this knowledge? 

The elected leaders lie to us, and we've been told nothing but lies our entire lives. Many are now waking up to the fact that our governments are nothing like the myths they tell us in school.

As we become aware of it, the government is determined to shut society down, and they are doing it very rapidly. 

The only thing happening in politics is lies, deception, manipulation, brainwashing; fear inducing control tactics and suppression of the people, break free from the matrix and seek truth, within!

This is happening all over the world, pressured no doubt by the very same forces - financial forces, primarily, but money is power. 
No candidate comes forward, well a few do telling some truth, but they are shut down, too, by the "media" which is run by these same forces. 
How to change, really change it?

I see lots of people thinking, these new understandings and thinking of how to arrange society so this does not keep happening. 
But how.

Most people misunderstand our elections. 
Electing one person i.e.: President doesn't change the balance of the Congress, Senate and the Supreme Court. 
Elections matter and who we vote for matters. Discerning and researching who is telling the "truth" is a full time job. 
My personal "litmus" test on anything, the question I always ask myself is this: 
Who is speaking words that seek to unite people and include all and who speaks words that divide us and pit us against one another? 

Who leads by example?
