I Have Learned The Secret Of Living In Every Situation
The Secret Of Living In Every Situation

The Secret Of Living In Every Situation

The Secret Of Living In Every Situation. I have learned the secret of living in every situation. With a full stomach or an empty one. Love, compassion, kindness, generosity, forgiveness, commitment, peace, beauty, abundance, harmony – these are my weapons – weapons of light, of grace. Watch me as I put on the armor of heaven. My Shield, love. For our present troubles, are not present, they are behind us, and our future troubles are figments of the imagination, often our concept of best case scenario is trumped by worst case scenario. All things in the gran scheme of it all are small and won’t last very long. Shout! Celebrate!  …

Not a getter A GO GIVER

“You are entitled to know that two entities occupy your body. One of these entities is motivated by and responds to the impulse of fear. The other is motivated by and responds to the impulse of faith. Will you be guided by faith or will you allow fear to overtake you?” Not a getter. A GO GIVER. The ability to acquire things is contagious. That is true for both poisons, weakness and pleasures. Misery loves company… So does truth, so does success, so does wealth, so does health – churches, bootcamps, coffeeshops, popular hikes.  Not a getter. A GO GIVER. I do not know everything. I know the business of life is …

How Much More Time Do I Have To Give Over To Pain?
How Much More Time Do I Have To Give Over To Pain?

How Much More Time Do I Have To Give Over To Pain?

How much more time would you like to give over to pain??? Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. (Proverbs 13:12 NLT) I am drinking from the tree of life… Join me? … Flesh is weak. We are stuck in our weak bodies. So rest and time of great difficulty. Like the Buddha, when Mara shot him with her arrows. Or Jesus as he slept peacefully on his way to crucifixion. Rest rest rest. No matter the wrath, a cylinder my rest. Rest like a cold night with a big cozy comforter, rest is being held. There’s nothing mystical about rest, just rest. …

Please Give Up

Stop the fighting & Simply say Yes! Giving up isn’t always a bad thing. Especially if what we are holding on to is not serving us, not freeing us, not allowing us to live fully. This conditioning we are so attached to, these limiting thoughts and needs hold us back; giving them up will make your life a lot easier and much, much happier. Give up your need to always be right.  “Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?”  – Wayne Dyer.   What difference will that make? Is your ego really that big? It’s just not worth it. Give up your need for control. “By …

You Gotta Give To Give

You Gotta Give To Give

You Gotta give to give, no more “give to receive” you are always receiving. No more “Waiting until”, no more “I’ll be a philanthropist once I’m rich” no – be a giver now, be a philanthropist now. Give now. Whatever you can now. Fighting To Give Back Even An Inch Of What I’ve Received …   Spending money to and for god. For life. For love. & How to give. What is poor? What is charity? What is alms? What is giving? And the parable of those who spend their property to seek the pleasure of Allah and for the certainty ‘of their souls is as the parable of a …

Next Level and Living on The Edge

Next Level and Living on The Edge

Next Level and Living on The Edge The question is: Are we close enough to our own edge so that the next level can actually occur? Intellectually, are we always reaching for a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the complexity of life in its many dimensions? Physically, are we striving to be as strong and as healthy as we can be? In our relationships, are we ever-more committed, generous, and authentic? Is our work related directly or indirectly to a demanding cause that is greater than our own survival or comfort? Spiritually, are we always aspiring for greater humility, transparency, and oneness with all of life? I think it’s …

Because You’re Stuck With Yourself Until You Die

Because You’re Stuck With Yourself Until You Die

Because You’re Stuck With Yourself Until You Die. So why let it be a person you don’t like. Waking up to things you don’t like. Seeing things you don’t like. Doing things you don’t like. You don’t have to. If you have lost yourself, if you have neglected your needs for too long, you might think you might not ever be able to find your way back. You can. Right now, is the perfect time. No better time than NOW. If you are reading this, and it strikes a cord, its perfect. I think that society has conditioned us to be afraid deep down of TRUE happiness, success, health, wealth, …

A Collection Of Words

A Collection Of Words – Some of my poems from the Whiskey Poetry event I was asked to share at in Los Angeles “Where exactly do you put your hands on somebody who hurts everywhere?”  – Charles D’Ambrosio, …. WITHIN THEM… You lay your self gently within them and give them all you have so they no longer have to hold all that stuff that was never theirs to begin with. O You,  The maker, the air, the blower, the dust. You the creator and destroyer. You who hold tight and freely unravel. Who’s sons and daughters dance among the birds, who dance among the dead, dance on burning ground, you lie, you …
