Remember that we are forever being supported by the Universe.

Today is as good as any day to let die all that no longer serves your greater purpose and joy in life.

Release back to the Universe those 
patterns, 
thoughts, 
inner dialogues, 
imprints, 
habits, 
fears and 
behaviours that cause you to feel self doubt, lack of self love, and create fear and anxiety.

Don't do this alone. Ask for the grace of God to sweep into your inner being and lift these energies from you as you are now willing to release them.

Allow your Spirit to carry back to the light, and in turn fill you a renewed and rejuvenated sense of self.

Rest your thoughts and emotions. 

Take a break from figuring it all out. 

Turn over your concerns to your Higher Self and trust it can and will heal, guide, and relieve you of all you carry in fear. 

Rest and know all is well.

So it is.

Befriending confusion seems different than "holding on".


When we befriend uncomfortable emotions in a spirit of curiosity and stop shaming ourselves for them for being human, the sting of:-
'Why am I so confused & what is wrong with me?' melts away more organically.

There is much to learn in that curious place. We can strive to be clearer and brighter, and that is a good focal point, but a strong conduit can hold the charge of all the emotions walk on the bridge and not drown in them.
We might take some deep dives, but not drown.

If we don't befriend our confusion, we remain trapped between worlds on the one hand, old ways of being ready to die; on the other, new ways of being eager to be born.

By holding all the possibilities at once, clarity as to path is slowly revealed.
The bridge is confusion.

We must learn how to cross it on the way home.

Don't hold on, if you do you will never go home. 
Pick a tangible action plan.

Clarity being slowly revealed is a misnomer that can result in supporting the ego and staying in the between worlds.

Rather we need people to decide to harbour a specific spirit in their vessel. And tune them to bring in more of the light. More of the vibes that transmit truth.

Make yourself a conduit of the vibes you want in the world. 
Concentrate and use your will power.

Bobbling back and forth takes you out of the game and makes another ineffective minion.

Life is short, make it count.

Choose that your willpower is effective in making your vessel do the work that needs to be done.
Perhaps the hardest thing about the path is that it’s entirely up to us how far we go, how deep we go, how authentic we become.

No one else can do it for us it’s all ours, it’s the art of self-creation, it’s adult responsibility. It’s such a private decision we come back to time and again.

Am I willing to do the work to find and to live my path?
Do I have the faith, courage and persistence I need to keep getting back up off the ground when things go awry?
How badly do I want an authentic life?
What price am I willing to pay to create one?

The cool thing about this life, for those of us who are able to stick around, is that we get so many opportunities to come back into reality, even if we had to numb ourselves to stay alive, even if we disconnected for a very long time.

I love how God set it up so that the path rises up to meet us time and again, inviting us to set our feet back on our own unique true-path yet another time..

The space between our ears....


“No matter how much we think about something, in the end, the decision is made on how we feel.”
--Jeffrey Fry

Sometimes, the worst battle you have to fight is between what you know and what you feel.

The expectation of others of how we should behave blows me away. It makes me weary to be around people who are constantly concerned about how they appear to others. 
I am all perfect at being myself, if only we just get out of our own way. 

The soulebrity is the one who matters most, an authentic being who recognizes that the contours and textures of one's unique journey of self-creation exists, mostly, in the subtle and quiet places within. 
Who cares what anyone thinks of us, so long as we are walking on and honouring our unique path.

I think it stems from greed. We know that exposure and acceptance feels good. 
Then our human nature just wants more, more, more resting in the gratitude of enough and now.

The celebrity path is archetypal and sacrificial. Some are destined to carry collective projections. I agree we are moving into less of a centralized 'guru-led" glorification spirituality. 
Yes, the subtle is where authentic presence resides.

You can have a conflict with your intellectual knowledge and what you feel about the same subject....like if something if right or wrong.

Like knowing the Reading says something is a sin and not wanting to accept it.

Sometimes, we are confused for something we really don't know. Stop to do anything will be a good policy in this case. 
It will be a better choice for us to find out what it is and decided it later on what we going to do. I prefer to be a stupid guy and learn something from it.

There are many great doors to come as we shed our cloaks of falsity and embrace our deepest truths. Walk with your head high and your heart open. 
The universe responds to authentic transformation. 

Nothing false will do. 

Out with the old, in with the true…

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

I don't want you to be perfect
I want you to be real as I am REAL!

I love you with my eyes wide open.
I love you with my heart wide open.
Always
Be you,
Be kind
Be grateful
When I can't hear what my mind wants to say, I listen to my heart.
Breathe, surround yourself with the white light of love and divine protection, and ground yourself. Breathe, hold it and release.
It matters not what beliefs you have. It matters not if my beliefs are not yours. What matters more is if you can still accept me for mine. Just because it is not your Truth, Does not mean it isn't True.
I pray for your world to be peaceful, for you to have shelter and a nice comfy bed to sleep in and also for you to have your loved ones near to you. Good night and get lots of good sleep.
Dream well.
I have a strong desire to visit the ocean tomorrow.

I Am a movie STAR!


I believe this moment can be trusted. It's the scenic route, does not require anything I am consciously aware of it already. 
Life is just like a movie really, staying radically open to the present scene, which is the present moment, is always the key. 
Keep those fingers off the REWIND and FAST-FORWARD buttons. You don't need to return, and you don't need to know. 
The previous scene has passed, and the next scene will come in its own time, intelligently flowing from the present scene. 
Even though you're the main star, you have to do your own make-up, wardrobe, publicity, even make up your own lines as you go along!

- Thoughts, sensations and feelings are all inherently loveable, because they are all movements of the very same consciousness that you are - waves in, and of, the unlimited ocean of you. 
They are of your essence, and have a rightful place in, and as, you.

- You are vast. Fear does not contain you. You contain fear. Anger does not contain you. You contain anger. Thoughts do not define you. Feelings cannot limit you. Pain cannot destroy you. 
You allow all of these life-movements to arise, express themselves, and dissolve. 
You remain, whole, ever-present, wide open, untouched yet deeply touched, the pure strength of total vulnerability.

- Being the ever-present room for all thoughts, sensations, feelings, you allow all content, contain all content, but no content can ever contain you. 
You provide space for limitation, but you can never be limited yourself. You are uncontainable, free, totally alive, never captured by a name, thought, belief, judgement or feeling. 
You are mysterious in essence, and can never be objectified, not even by the word "awareness".

- You allow all movement but never move. You are radically open to all change, but your essence never changes. 
Change is simply irresistible to you who never change. You love your content, but do not cling to it, or push it away, or seek yourself in it, and that is why, as yourself, you are always completely content.

- You are nothing in particular, nothing, yet radically open to everything in particular. You are not this or that, here or there, then or now, and yet you dance as all of this. In the last analysis, you ARE all that appears, without exception. 
No separation at all. You have already merged completely into life itself. You are already dead, and cannot die, and that is why you are so very alive, and you play like a child.

- Be what you are, and know clearly what you are not, and live the changeless and ever-changing adventure that begins in each and every moment with the primary invocation "I Am...", and behind that, the unspeakable ocean of silence...

Done is better than perfect.....

Perfection lies in our imperfection, otherwise there would be no expansion.

 'Perfect' always changes. I would go for 80% (or 2%), and build from there.

Imperfection lies in some percentage of perfection, and that without imperfection there would be no perfection at all, but..

I believe in going for the best possible option that is available to me, and to make that choice based on my highest excitement and wisdom.

The reason I mentioned this sentence today was that I've found myself postponing and excusing several events that I need to do to move forward. 

My limited mind thought that if it could not get it exactly the way it had foreseen, it would not bothering starting, camouflaged worry and fear. 

This is unproductive, and gives me less possibility of experience and growth.

Even though you forget this every time; things usually turn out better than you could have imagined. Your physical mind's best possible scenario is just the beginning level for your higher self. 

Be unlimited.

Perfection is a temporary mental concept that varies depending on the perspective you choose. 

There is no perfect that is valid from all viewpoints. Creation is perfect; it does not make any mistakes. Besides that – everything is up to you.

“Jealousy is, I think, the worst of all faults because it makes a victim of both parties.”

Our very best friends have a tincture of jealousy even in their friendship; and when they hear us praised by others, will ascribe it to sinister and interested motives if they can.

Jealousy is all the fun you think they had, is a mental cancer, is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies and is the fear of comparison.

Never ever underestimate the power of jealousy and the power of envy to destroy. Never underestimate that, have I seen it all and sadly to say am experiencing it.....good friend become enemy because of it.

Life is one big road with lots of signs, so when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy.....it will eat you up.

I think it's important to get your surroundings as well as yourself into a positive state - meaning surround yourself with positive people, not the kinds who are negative and jealous of everything you do.

A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity.

Those who enjoy their own emotionally bad health and who habitually fill their own minds with the rank poisons of suspicion, jealousy and hatred, as a rule take umbrage at those who refuse to do likewise, and they find a perverted relief in trying to denigrate them.

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.
Jealousy contains more of self-love than of love.

To jealousy, nothing is more frightful than laughter.
It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy to deprive a man of his natural liberty upon the supposition he may abuse it.

The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves.

People are taken aback by a confident, beautiful lady who knows what she wants in life and isn't going to let anyone get in her way. And you know what it's all about? Jealousy.

The jealous are possessed by a mad devil and a dull spirit at the same time. Like hatred, jealousy is forbidden by the laws of life because it is essentially destructive like Hunger, revenge, to sleep are petty foes, But only death the jealous eyes can close.

Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo.

"As iron is eaten away by rust, so the envious are consumed by their own passion."

"You can be the moon and still be jealous of the stars."



The way I got along in life. I don't ever remember being particularly jealous of anybody, because I figured if I can't do it myself, I don't deserve to get it.

Reflections from Space

Calming light fills a cool clear night
The reflection off a full May moon.
My spirit takes flight at this inspiring sight
A new rhyme rising soon.

Do you stop time and turn off your mind
To enter the sacred place?
By living in the now, you can see how
There’s no time, but there is a space.

You will find that space, where thoughts don’t race
When you die before you die.
Should you go on a quest to solve this test?
Do you feel a need to try?

Then come with me and you may see,
That all we have is now.
You can follow this path and do the math
No one can show you how.

You may learn some things, as the bell rings
There you shall find a truth.
We are all the same, no need to claim
That you are a special youth.

I may point a way, but then must say
The rest is up to you.
Love now without fear, then it will become clear
This is all there is to do.

There is no easy way—and that's the good news. Loll. The bad one??? Well, to think there is, obviously.

If we devote our life to security, pleasure, and satisfaction, we won’t be real adult human beings. We will continue being little kids.
If we don't confront the difficulties in our life and our reality, we're not going to live a real life. It’s as simple as that. We're not going to become real by having certain experiences. 
The experiences might give us some direction and guidance, a taste of what is real, but true transformation happens when we learn to live according to the truth.

Forty years down the golden road and after 52 years of living, it's clearly my own experience if it wouldn't, I'd have had no interest at all in sharing those words obviously.

Second, no one says here that one has to "repeat" this, certainly not me it's not a mantra.

Third, I don't see that it says anywhere that "to be 'real' it has to be difficult". 
There no "has to" here.

There are difficulties in life, whether we like it or not and if they are to be reduced to the strict minimum as it goes, then what's needed is needed and that's for each of us to go about it the way we want to.

Finally, personally my mind is an open sky where no thought could plant a root.

By truth, I personally never mean anything exotic or esoteric. 
To me, truth is reality, simply, just as it is. As for suffering difficulties, well, if anyone here on this planet never suffered anything nor had any difficulties, I have no idea from what planet they come from.

My only practice is also having a mind like an open sky where no thought could plant a root. 
What else could we do?

In any way, rest in peace and thanks for asking. As for what else we can do, well, that's a profound and delicate question as far as I'm concerned.

From an absolute point of view?

Nothing at all, as from there, all is already here and there is no separate us. From the point of view of being human beings though, it's another story.

As unique multifaceted particularizations of True Nature, unique multidimensional individualizations of it, there are all kinds of things one can do by my lights.
If it wouldn't be for the presence in us of obscurations or obstructions of various kinds, obviously Reality would be manifest right now in the fullness of all its aspects and dimensions. 
Well, we wish. *__*

True Nature is probably multidimensional.
Who knows?
Having no other perception than what my eyes, skin, ears, can perceive, I do with that. And it is already a big challenge!

 Don Juan, in Castaneda says something like:  ‘Life is one, but in the daily life, let's does as if it wasn't the case.’

Hmm. It's both at once, as one, for all I know. It is one and appears as many, which is still the One, how else can it be? 
There aren’t two lives. There is this One Life. 

A co-emergent Unity. An all-inclusive Oneness. And each one of us is a particularization of it, an individualization of it. 
Here to manifest it in unique ways. 
Wake up to it, realize it and actualize it in human life. Human beings. At once pure Being and human. Ô the sheer wonder of it all.

True. Nothing more to say.

That happens until something else comes up. It always does, one way or another, sooner or later.

If we want to be real human beings, we have to live like real human beings, regardless of how difficult that may be.

Nobody can give you the gift of being a real human being.

If you want a real life, a life with truth and integrity, a life with true meaning, with true significance, you're going to have to live that way. 
A real life is not the result of the Work but is the Work. 
We have to take the risks, make the sacrifices, and confront our demons.

Being real is not easy; it comes at a price. 

We cannot live a real life without taking risks, suffering difficulties, and making the necessary sacrifices. There's no easy way.

We call our path the Work because we often have to do things that are difficult. Although sometimes our Work might feel like play, and playful exploration is fundamental to it, more frequently it feels challenging.

The inner journey is difficult because we have to deal with issues that we'd rather not deal with, issues that we’ve avoided for a long time.

To be real, to live a truthful life, we have to be ruthlessly honest with ourselves. 
We can't say, 
“I want to be real,” and 
keep running away from ourselves and from our lives.

Being real is the result of confronting ourselves, the result of being honest about whom and what we are.

We are transformed by our own risk, our own sacrifice.

Me, I and Mine....


When you are in your body and present in this moment, you are able to pick up information that you cannot perceive from your mind.

You become aware of energies that give you direct knowing about others and situations, so If a "toothache" requires Dental work, and then I presume a "truthache", requires mental work!

I thank my body for being my authenticity-mometer, my temple of truth.

How beautifully you carried my sacred purpose until I was ready for the hand-off.

You reminded me with truth-chills whenever I walked in the right direction.

You tripped me up with truth-aches whenever I dared to walk in someone else’s shoes.

What is so remarkable is that you never failed to communicate with me when I was lost.

I may not have been ready to listen, but you never abandoned your faith in my possibilities.

I now know that my true-path is encoded in the bones of my being.

Not a temple that I visit, but one that I am.

GOD....

One of the most divine, sacred, deeply religious things that can happen is a total loss of your personal religion, a dropping of your second-hand belief in God and a waking up to what the word 'God' has always been pointing to, beyond words and sounds and images and the passing of experiences. 

To confine God to a word, a belief, an image, a feeling, a concept, a story, a dream, an ideology, to imprison God in a time-bound religious system, is to put limits on the vastness and give God a boundary, an inside and an outside, a shape, a form, a time-frame. 

To believe in God, to think of God, to dream of God, to argue about God, to claim God as 'mine' or 'ours' in any way, is to separate ourselves from God and each other, and create division where there is none.

That is idol worship, the worship of form and story and mental truth, and it is not a sin but a vast limitation, a human forgetting of what can be only ever hinted at by the metaphor 'God'.

God cannot be anything less than the totality, than all that is touched, tasted, heard, smelled, known, imagined and dreamed, and whether we dream of the God of a personal religion or of God's non-existence or even death, God is a word, a metaphor, for That which gives rise to all of it, prior to human belief and knowledge and even faith.

Yes, this is so vast that even our faith is too small to contain it, and our science cannot touch it, and yet it is as intimate and obvious and present as the very next breath...

We may all adhere to different religions, and hold on to different beliefs, and dress in different ways, and speak different languages, but we are all secretly intimate with the same God.

We are all in the business of parsing our concepts of God. 

Whether done via religion, or our choices of who deserves our "love" and who does not, it's just another piece of the All That Is. Our choice to be limited is one of the ways we learn about "no limits". Our choice to appear and feel separate teaches us about the beauty of "oneness". 

It's a perfect system.

"God cannot be anything less than the totality, than all that is touched, tasted, heard, smelled, known, imagined and dreamed, and whether we dream of the God of a personal religion or of God's non-existence or even death, God is a word, a metaphor, for That which gives rise to all of it, prior to human belief and knowledge and even faith."

GOD.
I do not have a religion
I have GOD.
I am not part of a denomination
I am part of GOD.
I do not honor beliefs or rules
I honor GOD.
I do not worship a preacher, guru, priest or leader
I do not sit in a pew or building on Sunday or Friday
I sit in GOD.
I do not dress in fine clothes
I do not sing to impress an audience
I do not worry or fear
I trust GOD.
I do not judge myself or others
I do not LOVE things
I LOVE GOD.
I do not doubt GOD.
I know God IS pure, powerful, perfect LOVE and LIGHT
and I Am too!

Soulshaping...

The art form of the Soulshaping journey is knowing when to assert, and when to surrender. 

There are times when utilizing our will is perfect in order to excavate our path from the deep within, but there are also times when glimpses of path float to the surface only when we are in a receptive state. 

Some shaping happens through our own efforts, some happens when we lay back and let the universe do the shaping for us. 

It’s like we figure we are the only ones advocating for ourselves on this inner journey, but we aren't. 

We aren't as alone as we think. 

While we are on the look-in, God is busily on the look-out for what will serve us. 

And then, when the moment is right, when we are truly ready to embrace our path, we walk right into the Godself on the bridge across forever, puzzled that we ever imagined ourselves separate.




 And the beauty is that even the application of will itself is a grace—it's Him/She operating all along.

GRATITUDE

We have all heard how important it is to maintain an “attitude of gratitude,” but this is not as easy as one might think....It takes practice! 

So with that in mind, start small… be grateful that you’re still breathing. 

Expanding your attention outwards, be aware of your existence in the grand scheme of life here on Earth and what an honour and privilege it is to participate in the unfolding story of us. 

Be grateful for your senses, your gifts and your talents. 
Moving outward, be grateful for the people in your life and the lessons you have learned from them, even if the only lesson was defining what type of person you don’t want to be! 

Expanding ever outward, be grateful for the fact that this planet is filled with far more goodness and light than evil and darkness. 

For every murder there are millions of acts of kindness. 
For every plane crash hundreds of thousands of planes fly safely. 
For every angry person you meet there is an uncountable army of people doing their best to live in joy and compassion.

Now, once you’re in the habit of being thankful for all that is good, the real challenge begins. 


For like unconditional love, there is also a state of unconditional gratitude, a state of mind and spirit where you are grateful not just for all the wonderful things in life, but for EVERY thing in life: 

The illness, the uncertainty, the loss… all of these can serve to raise your awareness and vibration, and so are many things that we can be grateful for.

The faster we run, the more determined is the Universe to slow us down.

The more embedded our methods of self-distraction, the more agitating the truth aches calling us back into authenticity.

The more eagerly we race to the sky, the more intense the lessons that bring us back to earth.

That's the nature of karmic gravity.

It keeps bringing us back…

Nowhere to go but here.

Return to sender, address now known.

It’s not all falling apart, it’s all coming together and it takes many forms more than ever, in this waking waiting dance of life.
To really feel what love and peace means is BLISS and self inspiring and renewing.

I am so wondrous that some can't take the reflection n back to their own limitations.

They aren't ready for wondrous yet...so do not take it deeply personal when they took themselves away from you.

I truly believe with all my heart, that some people are simply not 'ready' for the divineness we have to offer them.
They are unable to set their fears, beliefs, limitations aside, and see with true eyes the love we are willing to offer, even if they asked for it prior to our arrival.

And as painful as these lesson have been for me, I know now they simply weren't ready. I still love them all the same and will always; however I simply accept that they weren't ready to walk through that door.

If my job is to offer love, all I do is hold the door open, it's their job to walk in or out.

The door remains open...
The love remains the same if they ever choose to revisit

Saturday thoughts....

The Creator has a Temple
In silence it dwells
In peace it is found
In light it is surrounded

With eyes closed, it is seen
With inner light it is shown
Thru prayer is a key
Thru prayer it is known

Ask and you shall receive
Seek and you will find
Knock and the door
With be open unto you

Into light for all Humankind


The soul learns in spirals, not direct, linear paths.

"Be aware of where your energy is at the moment. Stay grounded in your body and don't let anyone else's energy occupy it. Take a few deep breaths and with intention cut all cords to people who are dragging you down."

Thoughts just are! Neither good nor bad...simply there and accepted as part of this "now" if they are present.

Your life situation doesn't need to be perfect. 

You don't need to be blissed-out all of the time. 
You don't always need to be certain, or right. 
You don't need to be at peace all the time, or joyful all the time. 

You don't need to be anything, in fact - since you are everything, and there is room for everything, here in the vast and unchanging ocean of Being that you are, an ocean that is radically open to all of those waves of experience as they arise and dissolve. 

You are the backdrop of stillness in an ever-changing gossamer world, where nothing remains fixed and where all edges and boundaries are subject to decay and dissolution and mystery. 

You are what remains when all is gone, even the idea "all is gone" and "I am what remains". 

What holds all of it, allows all of it? 
What cannot be doubted, even when there is doubt? 
What is reading these words right now? 
What is trying to understand them? 

This is not the perfection of the mind, not "the perfect life" or 
"the perfect body" or 
"the perfect experience" or 
even "the perfect moment", 
but the perfection that is the absolute embrace of all of this, exactly as it is - the embrace you already are.


People often talk about living in the moment, but it is my experience that we do not live in the moment if we are not living in truth. TRUTH IS THE GATEWAY TO THE MOMENT. 
It doesn’t matter how much we achieve, or how many things we master, if it is not our true-path. 
The moment we lie, we leave the moment. 
The work we do to separate false-path from true-path is not just spiritually beneficial, it is our best and only hope.



The truth is how I roll. When it's not "good enough" I haven't accepted something. Awareness of the Truth is first, and then acceptance is the key to freedom!

TRULY AWAKENED!!!!

Take a fresh look at the experience we call anxiety, fear and nervousness and ask: can we discover an ever-present stillness amidst the stormy waves of life?

It seems that we have forgotten who we really are, freely given peace beyond comparison, judgement and condition; this silent, restful background of being that we are.

The vast ocean of consciousness that unconditionally embraces its beloved ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ children with equal tenderness,
that loves its ‘dark’ and ‘light’ waves to death,
that holds its ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ with equal understanding.

Life is not the problem.
Thoughts and feelings are not the problem.
The waves in the ocean are not the problem.
Being human is not the problem.
It never was.

The ‘problem’ begins with the ‘solutions’ that we are offered, the paths we follow in our misguided innocence, and in our fear.

We do not need solutions to the non-existent problem of being alive here and now.

At last someone who is TRULY AWAKENED!

Facing it.

An easy life doesn't often facilitate growth. 

The more you overcome in your life, the better you are for it. 

Every situation that scares you, tempts you, saddens you is an opportunity to grow in consciousness, wisdom, and self mastery. 

The insights gained from your struggles are priceless to others and humanity as a whole; be sure to share them. 

Be strong, be aware, and be glad that you've been blessed with the opportunity for growth. 

Struggle is a high calling; embrace it with excitement for what's in store. 

And don't forget to ask for help seen or unseen. 

If you need it , it's always there. 

You aren't alone, you need only to ask, and help will come.



We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act, but a habit. Aristotle

Do you want to be a man or woman of honor, integrity and character? 

Then you have to act like a man or woman of honour, integrity and character. 

Not just once and a while, not just when you are in a good mood, not just around people who you consider important, but all the time. 

You have to get into the habit of living a life full of honour. 

It doesn’t just happen automatically. You have to practice it and work at it. Sometimes you have to just plain grit your teeth and do it despite your feelings, until the time when acting with honour and integrity becomes automatic.

Aristotle also tells us that excellence is an art form and that it is acquired by training and repetition. 


You do not do the right thing because you have virtue, but rather you have virtue because you do the right thing. Your actions and intentions form your character. 

Later, when your character has been formed and becomes a habit, it determines your actions.

The warrior must be careful to make his actions and intentions right. He/she has to make a habit out of this until we have perfected our character. 


Once we have begun to perfect our character, acts of honour and integrity come naturally, without conscious thought. When you get to this point, living a life of excellence will become your nature. 

Your actions determine who you become.

Don't Be Sad When I Die....

The life we experience as human beings is very different from the life experienced by other creatures with which we share our planet.

Most of us agonize over the meaning of our lives, we have hopes and dreams to which we aspire and work towards.

We are human and we will always be changing, our needs are always changing, when one need is filled the next need now has room to make its voice heard.

When we stop changing we can stop living, yes life is hard sometime and changes and many people lose their way in their path to find peace.

Live each day to the fullest, wondering why, life at times, can seem great. Living every day, like it was our very last, for our days could be very long or go by very fast.

Trust and have faith in God and especially in you, for you will carry yourself in your flight.
The miracle of life is waiting for you to see.

Look beyond yourself and of the world. Not all communication is verbal and sometimes we know and feel although they haven't said a thing.

Tomorrow isn't promised to young or old alike, today may be the last day I'm able to hold you tight. Don't wait for tomorrow, do it all today, if tomorrow never comes, you'll never regret a day.

What is spirituality?

Some would some say it is simply matters of the spirit, but the complication comes in when you try to define spirit.

Spirituality is a very hard word to define, but let’s just say you know it when you feel it.

When that something deep inside you feels moved, it is probably of a spiritual nature.


When tomorrow starts without me,
and I’m not there to comfort you,
please know that I still love you,
cause I know you love me too.

When tomorrow starts without me,
and you feel lost and blue,
I hope these words I’ve written
will help to see you through.

Someday your pain will ease,
sadness replaced by fond memories
Come tomorrow you will hear
I love you whispered on the breeze.

When tomorrow starts without me
cause God has called me home
I turn, blowing a kiss for thee
Sad that you may feel alone.

I will miss you tomorrow
as I take one last glimpse
a tear falls from my cheek
I’ll be going home.

And tomorrow will start without me
