Move toward what makes you happy

We’re looking for something to clear the fog for us; to show us the how to reach a higher plane. But, spend a little time studying the ideas around spiritual enlightenment and you’ll quickly see that ALL of the teachers will tell you that your guidance comes from within.

You’re no good to the world poor

There’s no escape hatch from that. No exit ramp. No clause that moves you toward changing the situation. The mindset of the phrase isn’t, “If I’m poor, I’m no good to the world, so I’m doing something about it.” Instead, it’s a closed, dead-end, no options perspective of one’s place in the world.

You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey

If we go through life focused on the negative, using every opportunity to point out the ugly and the unfortunate and the unjust things in this world (all of which are personal judgements, by the way), we’re going to end our lives unhappy, unhealthy, and full of resentment and fear.

Let the experiments begin!

Just reading the introductory sections of this book gave me goosebumps – I’m connecting to it like I haven’t connected to a book in a long time – and it’s got me excited to see the results.

OMG! I think it’s working!

“What is meditation supposed to accomplish?” I mean aside from lowering your blood pressure, helping you to relax, and the sizeable list of other physical benefits. These things are reason enough to do it, but they’re not spiritual in nature. Rather, they’re wonderful side effects. How does meditation help someone along their path?

Mahalia Michaels and the Not-So-Strange Coincidence

…Luckily, she was a pretty good speaker, physically attractive (OK, truth time – she’s pretty sexy), and a core component of what she was talking about was near and dear to every man’s heart – sexuality and sensuality. So, we stayed and listened…

The Universe is only answering YOUR vibration

…She wanted to live a life of fun and freedom and financial independence and health and happiness… But she wasn’t willing to take responsibility for it. She died broke, alone, mostly without friends, and convinced that she was the butt of the Universe’s jokes.

You really are the center of the Universe

No wonder 2 year olds can be difficult to handle! They’re having their little worlds re-shaped, against their wills. They hear the word “no” a hundred times a day; why should it be a surprise that it’s often the first thing THEY use to respond to someone else’s requests/demands/orders?

What’s YOUR path?

So, find the part of YOUR path that makes you feel good about life, and follow it. You’ll find people who will disagree with you, but you’ll find plenty of others ready to walk alongside you. If you feel good about how you are living your life, you’re on YOUR right path.

Inertia

… the more challenging it is, the more you have to focus your mind on what your body is doing. I promise you that if you go skydiving, you will NOT be thinking about work as you step out of the plane. Taking a mental vacation…

Go do something

If you’re a parent, you are doing your kids a disservice if you don’t kick them out of the house to play. Take away the iPhone (blasphemy!, I know) and the portable Game Boy. Force them to…

Desire summons Life Force

Nobody is more alive than a six year old with toys. Or a sixty year old!
