Every day sit for a moment in silent meditation and concentrate on exactly what you would love to create in your life. Imagine every detail you can and then even more. Imagine your life exactly the way you would love it to be.Let your imagination be real enough to have it come true, yet ideal enough to inspire and stretch you.
Write as many details as you can imagine down and...Read Full Post »

As soon as you look at the world through an ideology you are finished.
No one reality fits an ideology. Life is beyond that.
People are always searching for a meaning to life. But life has no meaning; it cannot have meaning because meaning is a formula; meaning is something that makes sense to the mind.
Every time you make sense out of reality, you bump into something that destroys the sense ...Read Full Post »

It’s so easy to get caught up in the business and demand of life that we can often for the most simple of truths. Even some of the truths that hold together the foundation of our experience, that give life meaning, and that bring us joy often get buried beneath a concoction of thoughts, obligations, and responsibilities.
While it can be excited to experience life and go with the flow, a life without reflection is not worth living. There has t...Read Full Post »

The greater a grudge, the greater are the physiological effects.
It is wiser to discover the source of the grudge and dissolve it before it festers into a health robbing status. Either by setting realistic expectations or effectively communicating or discovering the benefit, value, meaning or purpose behind the action or event that initiated the grudge in the first place we can dissolve the grudge and get on with our lives.

We live here on Earth, together with billions of fellow human beings. That we live is an irrefutable empirical fact. Similarly, the fact that other people live on Earth, too, is also an empirical fact.
We do not merely live, however, but we are also personalities. We are personalities who are similar to each other in various respects, and largely different from each other in other respects. That we are personalities, different from each ...Read Full Post »

There exists in society a law of social behaviour called the Law of Eristic Escalation. The law is derived from the chaos theory and states that when somebody in society attempts to impose a rule or value on that society in order to bring order and governance, an equal and opposite social force will emerge to initiate chaos in the governance of disorder.
An individual who attempts to...Read Full Post »

"Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to ...Read Full Post »

I learned this lesson first and foremost with myself (the way we all learn our big lessons I suppose).
The only way ANYTHING in my life has ever changed is when I was finally able to step outside of myself a bit, and regard my thoughts or actions with a dispassionate eye, and see how those thoughts and actions were contributing to these terrible outcomes, and finally say to myself: "Enough of this bullshit, Gilbert."

We are NOT raised to believe in our extraordinariness. We are raised in a way that encourages us to ‘raise’ our ego, the part of us that must accomplish something and ‘own’ things. So we are raised in a way that the ‘ordinary’ part of us feels that we are having a successful life IF we go through the motions, IF we go to school, IF we get good grades, IF we do well, IF we stick to the rules, IF we fill out the forms, IF we pay our taxes.Read Full Post »

1. Stop being offended. The behavior of others isn’t a reason to be immobilized. That which offends you only weakens you. If you’re looking for occasions to be offended, you’ll find them at every turn. This is your ego at work convincing you that the world shouldn’t be the way it is. But you can become an appreciator of life and match up with the universal Spirit of Creation. You can’t reach the power of intention by being offended. By all means, a...Read Full Post »

1. You can train your mind to do anything
“The truth is that we can learn to condition our minds, bodies, and emotions to link pain or pleasure to whatever we choose. By changing what we link pain and pleasure to, we will instantly change our behaviours.”
2.You have all the power you need

When I first heard this phrase, it took a few moments to really sink in. I thought to myself: that makes no sense; I’m totally together when it comes to my relationships, and my business is thriving. And then it hit me.
I can work myself into a frenzy to get something done at work, procrastinate like crazy, and be quick to jump to conclusions if something or someone seems to upset the apple cart of my livelihood. But in my mind, business was on...Read Full Post »

“It is important that you get clear for yourself that your only access to impacting life is action. The world does not care what you intend, how committed you are, how you feel or what you think, and certainly it has no interest in what you want and don’t want. Take a look at life as it is lived and see for yourself that the world only moves for you when you act.”

Dear Human: You’ve got it all wrong. You didn’t come here to master unconditional love. That is where you came from and where you’ll return. You came here to learn personal love. Universal love. Messy love. Sweaty love. Crazy love. Broken love. Whole love. Infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling. Demonstrated through the beauty of… messing up. Often. You didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are. You came here to be gorgeo...Read Full Post »

“An unrealistic perception of life is the basis of fear. People are not willing to live – people are not willing to die. That is their whole predicament right now. The fear is simply because you’re not living with life – you’re living in your mind. Your fear is always about what’s going to happen next. That means your fear is always about that which does not exist.
If your fear is about the non-existent, your fear ...Read Full Post »

For those who think they KNOW things because they have been told them:
I need to know the answers for myself. I find little comfort in beliefs, especially since they are the most abundant commodities available today. Every society, every culture is overflowing with their version of the truth – a manmade collection of solid convictions. These beliefs change with time, evolving and decaying, while the truth of our existence remains the same, hidd...Read Full Post »

We go through our entire lives experiencing so many things. Most people identify with their experiences. “This happened to me.” Somehow we have lost ourselves in the drama. It’s just like when you are watching a movie, and you become immersed in it, as if it is real. We become entrapped in our experiences, we think about them, our emotions are stirred and we fall victim to the show.
But we are Not our experiences. We are the...Read Full Post »

Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings and emotions- Will Smith
If you really want to break the cycles of choosing toxic behaviours such as anger, drugs, alcohol, violence, etc one of the major turning points will be to break free of toxic relationships.
To break free of toxic relationships you need to stop blaming the other person such as your mum, dad...Read Full Post »

Have perfect faith in yourself and in your own ability to cope with any combination of circumstances that may arise. Do not be disturbed if you are alone;
if you need friends they will be brought to you at the right time.
Do not be disturbed if you feel that you are ignorant, the information that you need will be furnished you when it is time for you to have it. That which is in yo...Read Full Post »

Nothing ever really attacks us except our own confusion.
Perhaps there is no solid obstacle except our own need to protect ourselves from being touched.
Maybe the only enemy is that we don’t like the way reality is now an...Read Full Post »
