Imperfection is perfection!

When Life Pushes You Down

When life pushes you down, push back!
That’s what you’re here for.

You’re capable, you’re creative, you’re full of life and energy.
You have what it takes to move yourself forward around any obstacle.
Don’t let anything stop you.

Take strength from meeting the challenges, and move ahead.
The struggles you face are just what you need to fulfill your potential for greatness.

A year from now, when you look back at today,
you’ll see that the problem you’re so concerned with right now,
was another valuable lesson waiting to be learned

Labeling Difficulties

Leave the mind in its natural, undisturbed state.
Don't follow thoughts of "This is a problem, that is a
problem!" Without labeling difficulties as problems,
leave your mind in its natural state. In this way,
you will stop seeing miserable conditions as problems.

- Buddha

Experience Your Life

When you take the time to slow down and experience your life fully you give yourself the opportunity to enjoy your life! You can feel more fulfillment and joy. Who doesn’t want more fulfillment and joy?

So practice slowing down. Get present. Enjoy your life- even the seemingly mundane parts. This life is a precious gift. Enjoy it! Savor it! Love it!

Have a great day!

We Spend So Much Time Worrying

Sometimes we spend so much time worrying about all the things that seem to be going wrong in our lives and in the process we forget to take the time to give thanks for the many things that are going right in our lives. We have so many things to be thankful for and yet we choose to spend much of our time dwelling on the negative. We focus so much on the challenges that life has thrown our way and don’t pay any attention to the many blessings.

It is important for us to get into the habit of being thankful for every situation in our lives. We must cultivate a thankful spirit through all the good and bad times. We must remember that all the trials and tribulations that we may be facing are just a test of our faith. Without thankfulness in our hearts we will live in perpetual spiritual defeat. A thankful heart is the key to having peace of mind.

Just the fact that we were able to wake up this morning in good health is in it self a reason to celebrate and give thanks for this miracle. So many people would have loved to have lived to see this day, but they didn’t. So many people are lying helpless in the hospital and would give anything to be able to take your place today. So just remember to take the time out of your busy schedule to be thankful for the many blessings that your life is constantly being showered with from day to day, no matter how big or small they may seem.

You'll discover that real love is millions of miles past falling in love with anyone or anything. When you make that one effort to feel compassion instead of blame or self-blame, the heart opens again and continues opening.

- Sara Paddison, Hidden Power of the Heart

A Short Course in Manifestation

Most of the people who try to implement the Law of Attraction and fail are unaware of the issues that are blocking their ability to manifest their desires. This is usually because they haven't done the work required to clearly attract what they think they want. The reason I say "think they want" is because contrary to their belief, the technique is actually working perfectly.

Human beings are complex; and unfortunately, one-dimensional solutions rarely solve intricate problems. Most of the manifestation techniques and tools that are popular today are valuable and can produce wonderful benefits, but only if a proper foundation is laid that allows them to have the greatest effect. Making a list of affirmations and reciting them over and over is a powerful tool, but saying I am an abundant being to yourself does very little if deep down-beneath your conscious mind-you believe the opposite.

Your wish is the Universe's command, whether it's conscious or unconscious. It will give you everything you ask for, so it's vital that you know exactly what it is you're asking for. Otherwise, you'll practice these techniques and pull into your life all the things you believe you don't want, and you'll say that it doesn't work. It does work - every time!

Now it's time for you to do the work so that your soul's desire - not your ego's - will be realized.

A Lesson in Fortitude

Fortitude: strength of mind that enables a person to encounter danger or bear pain or adversity with courage

Enough Love

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal, no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge; no wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem. It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.

- Emmet Fox


When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of Creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open and love steps forth to heal everything in sight.

Pain and Suffering

A way to handle the worst pain and suffering is to expand your consciousness backward and forward in time.

Tell yourself, “What is happening now is only passing debris on the river of time.”

Dwell on the thought of the Eternal Bliss you will know when you attain inner freedom. The ability to rise above the present moment is vital to that achievement.

Maker of Your World

A Fable About Following Your Dream

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

To Have or Have Not

Have you ever wondered why some people have successful lives, whilst others live out theirs in complete failure?

There's a single ingredient that separates those who 'have' success in life from those who 'have not', and that element is how they harness their personal power. Those who use their power will take their dreams and make them come true. They're courageous in their drive and will take immediate, repeated action, and will never give up until they can live their greatest ambitions.

The Barrier Between You and the Blessings You Have Created.

Perhaps you have experienced moments in your life when, despite doing all the “right” spiritual work, the results still do not manifest. Why is this? Is it because we do not deserve them? Or perhaps we have not done quite enough to earn them? These are questions we have all asked at one time or another, and the answer is simple. Quite often we have earned the blessings, but they cannot flow into our life simply because we have left a barrier between ourselves and those blessings. This barrier is called ego.

Ego means we think we are better than someone. It means, therefore, we can become angry or annoyed at this person and treat him or her poorly. It means, therefore, we can be jealous when someone has more than we do, and we can talk badly about them and wish them ill. It means we can dismiss people we deem insignificant and unworthy of our time or love. These are all the tell-tale signs of ego.

This week, focus on how you treat people. Notice when you are being dismissive, or mean, or jealous. Work on being kinder and more considerate and offering every single person that crosses your path a modicum of human dignity. But please do not do this because it’s “the spiritual thing to do” or to be “a good person.” Do it because you know in your heart that it will remove the barrier between you and the blessings you have created.

Tapped does a solid job of covering every aspect of this damaging industry and inspiring more outrage than despair. If you get the chance to see this documentary I highly recommend it.

I Choose to Adapt to the Circumstances in Which I Find Myself

I choose to adapt to the circumstances in which I find myself. I choose to be flexible in my dealings with those around me. I understand that my way is not the only way - that inner peace comes from respecting the ways of others, and that, if I am open, I may gain great insights and happiness from the ideas and traditions of others.


Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.

Sometimes we close ourselves off from the world. If we do that we close ourselves off from seeing the signs. Try opening yourself up to see the signs. It might change your world.

- Kaoru

There Are No Bounds

One of the fascinating things about human beings is this: Believe for long enough that you are not as smart as others and this will actually lead to intellectual ineptitude. But, confronted with the same doubts, if you choose to believe that your mind is merely dormant for now, lacking in exercise, once you begin to train it, there are no bounds to what you can achieve.


Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

Man Has No Understanding

As a cloud hurried by the winds across the valley so is man wherever he be, hurried along through life. Man has no fixed purpose, man has no understanding of the meaning of life, but is as the clouds that have no resting place, that are chased from valley to valley, that have no quietude, no tranquillity, no peace. Man has no goal. He is blind to the purpose of life and there is chaos and disintegration in him and hence in the world.

- Krishnamurti

Friends come and Friends go, Memories last forever though…

Make the moments you share with your friends and loved ones meaningful moments. One day they are here and they next day they may be gone. One day YOU are here and the next day you may be gone. Life is precious and It can be intended to be what you choose to consciously and subconsciously make of it. Express your love, show your gratitude, be interested in others words, feelings, emotions and thoughts and live your life with Joy. Amazing memories will begin to store and they will last forever.

Power to Choose

And finally, I want to acknowledge that making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin.

- Stephen Cherniske, M.S


Generally, appreciation means some blend of thankfulness, admiration, approval, and gratitude. In the financial world, something that "appreciates" grows in value. With the power tool of appreciation, you get the benefit of both perspectives: as you learn to be consistently thankful and approving, your life will grow in value.

The Karmic Law of Return

True Value

Never treat people by the careers they choose. Some of the nicest people have the lowest incomes and those with the highest incomes can be the rudest, just see the person for their true value and not by their title.

A Prayer

May the Supreme Spirit of the universe guide me in all that I do;

And help me to express joy and fervent devotion through each task of the day.

May I bear aloft the light of Truth in my every thought and action;

And bring brightness into other lives.

Happiness or Misery

Smile Catcher

I am alone,
my family gone.
Work left behind.
with the years.
I smile.
I catch smiles.
That's my job.
Full time now.
My smile
is for free.
Smiles returned,
my wages.
I catch the bus
to town
and hunt for smiles
in teaming streets
and steamy cafes.
I cast smiles wide.
and reel in my catch
to serve them up
for comfort in the night
when I'm alone.

If Humanity is to Survive

If humanity is to survive, happiness and inner balance are crucial. Otherwise the lives of our children and their children are more likely to be unhappy, desperate and short. Material development certainly contributes to happiness - to some extent - and a comfortable way of life. But this is not sufficient. To achieve a deeper level of happiness we cannot neglect our inner development.

- Dalai Lama

What Feels Good

You may not always be able to feel a deeper heart feeling right away, but stay focused in the heart. The sincerity of your effort can reconnect you to your heart current and start the juices flowing. To plug in, think of someone you love or remember what feels good, maybe a fulfilling experience. Feelings help you remember.

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.

The Gift of Forgiveness


Humility does not mean you think less of yourself. It means you think of yourself less.

— Ken Blanchard

Till the End of Time

It don’t matter what happened in the past
Because what we have, it’s gonna last

You make me smile
Your worth my while

You let me know how you feel
Which lets me know you’re the real deal

You let me see, what you mean to me
Without you, who knows where I’d be?

When I’m not with you, I feel blue
Whoever knew, our love would be true?

When I think of you
There’s no other clue
How much I care for you

In so little time, I made you mine
And we’re gonna last, til the end of time!

May your spirit soar throughout the vast cathedral of your being.
May your mind whirl joyful cartwheels of creativity.
May your heart sing sweet lullabies of timelessness.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of sorrow - it empties today of strength.

What Kinds of Problems Do People Have with the Law of Attraction?

The Law of Attraction seems so easy for some. Others try and try and have no success. They wonder why this should be true. There are some very good reasons why people have problems using the Law of Attraction.

The most obvious answer to the question of why it isn't working is that you might be expecting to instantaneously have what you ask for. You have to realize that you are simply sending out positive energy surrounding a subject. You must trust Law of
Attraction to send it back to you in its time.

When trying to use the Law of Attraction, you may find that you are always tapping your foot and asking when it's going to happen for you. If you do, it may mean that you are not really coming into it believing in anything. You are just testing the waters and not willing to commit to anything.

You might also be expecting the answer to your demands to come by a certain method. For example, you might ask for money. You are hoping someone will just give it to you. This may be your idea of the Law of Attraction. However, if you are alert to the universe around you, you may come across another means.

An idea might come to you that would bring you the money you desire. It might involve some work, but the end result would be the same. If your energy is positive, you will look upon this circumstance with gratitude and joy. By the Law of Attraction, this can only multiply the good in your life.

Dealing with Hatred and Intolerance the Right Way Rather than the Easy Way

If you experience hatred from others, for whatever reasons, realize that you have two choices:

You can be drug down to the hater’s level. If you aren’t careful, hatred can rub off on you and. Then, before you even realize what’s happening, you’ll be just as angry. You’ll become just as intolerant. And you’ll be filled with just as much hatred as they are. Believe me, it won’t look any better on you than it does on them. No one ever wears hatred well.

You can rise to a level the hater’s will never know. If you recognize their hatred for what it is (a crippling weakness), and find it within yourself to feel pity for them, you will have experienced the kind of growth that a hater will never know. Don’t return their scowls with scowls of your own – smile! Come on, give them the brightest, sweetest smile you have in your arsenal.

How to Be a Better Person

Changing the world begins first with changing ourselves. Self improvement involves means taking an honest look at ourselves to identify our shortcomings and improve them. These steps will begin your journey into being a better person

Look for the best qualities of others and yourself. Take advantage of situations where you can exercise your best qualities and highlight those of others. Record your thoughts daily and review them to visualize what affects us and how. Schedule a window for quiet time each day.

Give others the same dignity that you would expect to receive. Recognize that status or income levels do not make the man nor determine his value. Take time to actually hear what others have to say instead of interjecting your own personal thoughts or simply not paying attention.

Become involved in what others have to say by asking sincere questions and waiting for an answer. This will enhance your relationships, allowing you to make positive contributions to a healthy friendship.

Provide assistance to others when needed, going out of your way if necessary. Acts of kindness are often met with reciprocal acts of kindness. You are further demonstrating how to be a better person and reaping the rewards from your efforts while making others feel special.
