Becoming A Great Giver

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

In order to become an even greater Liver. Giving is the way. Giving fully. Like the Artist who made it everything. The poet – gave to the poem. The lover- Gave all of himself in search of making the world feel nothing but love. The composer The thinker The writer Every great artist GAVE. Every great person, leader, thinker, human being GAVE. Before the beginning of time we were given everything, everything in total perfection from our creator, from our God. Now it’s time that we Give. Knowing that there is ENOUGH of everything to go around, now what do we do!? Where do we begin when the world is …

Now Thats A To-Do List!

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

The to-do list might be the secret to willpower, and it is certainly an essential tool of creativity, just take it from these folks:   Thomas Edison Circa 1888 Among Edison’s “things doing and to be done,” while he wasn’t busy inventing and scandalizing cinema, were: Cotton picker New standard phonograph Hand turning phonograph Deaf apparatus Electrical piano New expansion pyromagnetic dynamo Artificial silk Phonographic clock Marine telegraphy Chalk battery Ink for blind           Leonardo DaVinci                                                       John Lennon Hand …

Don’t Find, CREATE

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

This is how we manifest reality. We have to show up first. We don’t find a lover, We create them. We don’t find a friend, we create them. We want them to be kind, WE must be kind. We want them to be warm, WE must be warm. “The karma you plant is the karma you get.” They should take care of us, we should take care of the world. They should treat us special, we should treat the world special. It starts with Us. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus, Martha (Lazarus’ wife) said to Jesus, “Where were you? He’s been dead for two days” Jesus replies, “Martha, do you believe?” …

Write Yourself A Masterpiece

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

You are the Author. WRITE! & then write some more! In ink, blood, scars, life, something that’s permanent, something that retraces your steps. The book on your life- it will rock! Out loud. Backwards. In different languages. The audio tape will pop speakers! We’ll buy new speakers, because it’s that good. It’ll be in the “Religion” section and the “How To” section: An instruction manual, a guide to falling into ditches and being okay, to packing light, never forgetting your breath at home, risking it all, falling harder, faster, finding a better way, a better way in, how to scrape our knees enough so we know how to stand instead …

I Am Whole

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

A chant I have written above my mirror: … I am Whole. I am Everything. I am Complete. I am Perfect. I am as Beautiful as I need to be. I don’t need to be anything I am not. I am not my body, I have a body. … How good it is to Center Down. I have a Good Life.

You Just need to KNOW It.

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Until we know, like REALLY KNOW Until we believe, TRULY BELIEVE In ourselves, in our God(s), in our faith, in our path, in our universe(s), in our truths Until we OWN it We are suffering from “spiritual indigestion” – Reverend Micheal Beckwith Own your power. You have a huge place in this world. A huge stake. When you move the earth shakes. The universe, like water, moves around YOU. Where will you place yourself!?  Everyone wins when you’re in alignment with all things- self, prayer, energy, universe, love, hobbies, faith, hope, worship, trust, forgiveness, health & wellness-body & soul inside & out. You Rock. Start shaking things up. That’s one …

BE an APPLE TREE!!

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

BE Abundance. An apple tree doesn’t get mad or nervous when a human comes to pick its fruit. It knows there’s so many more where that came from. It encourages that world take from it, that’s why it’s there. To spread its gift, not too hang onto anything. That’s why we’re here. To shine and be great and be abundant in all things; to prosper and GIVE. To Share our gifts with the world, freely, without judgement. Every opportunity is an opportunity to speak and BE your truth; your true self. Be the Apple Tree who lives fearless and knows that there is definitely more where that came from! … …

The Curse of “The Secret”

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

No more standing around and waiting for things to come to us. Yes, the universe does work in mysterious ways. Yes, there is a law of attraction, but that does not mean that we can sit back and just wait. We need to take action. “Be the change you wish to become.” Maybe what the universe is giving you is as an opportunity to work, THE opportunity to shine, everywhere and all the time. Maybe this is your gallery, maybe this is your talk show, maybe this is your big break. Maybe while you’ve been looking for things, God, the universe, and everyone else has been saying stop, look, breathe …

Start by Doing

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

This is the only way. Conventional wisdom tells us to wait until we feel like it – at that rate nothing will ever happen. According to the Torah, when Moses stood atop Mount Sinai and presented his people the stone tablets with the Law of Jehovah inscribed upon them, the Hebrews spoke in unison “na’aseh v’nishma,” which means “We will do and we will understand.”  Basically the Hebrews decided that they would live the Law first, in the hope that through living the law they would eventually come to understand it. Virtues don’t come through simply thinking about them. You have to “exercise them.” Aristotle’s promise is this: if you …

Dare To Imagine

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

  Dare to be Silly  Dare to be wrong.  “I can deal with failure, everybody fails at something, but I can’t deal with not trying” – Micheal Jordan Dare to take chances. Dare to rise up and ask for something that was once considered impossible. Dare to be Stand Out. Dare to tear down walls, brick by brick. Dare to place yourself. Dare to Fall. Dare to Trust. Dare to Forgive. Dare to be anything but ordinary. Dare to Shine. Dare to Inspire. Dare to BE. Dare to Allow. Dare to Breathe. Dare to Live. Dare to Try. Dare to Love. Dare to know that with each breath, each step, …

Whose Dream am I Dreaming?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Asleep, dreaming you’re awake… What dream am I dreaming? Experience vs Reality – Two very different things! We all know that we each experience reality differently. We have all see a hypnotist or magician make someone think they are someone else, make them chase invisible rabbits, etc… Is that reality?? These thoughts played in the mind.

You have arrived. You are great. You are Light. This …

Mixed Messages

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

  Does this seem familiar?  Is this a feeling you know all too well?  What are they saying? What are you saying? Why can’t you communicate with anyone, with yourself, with your own thoughts?  Typical reactions to this behavior are confusion, anger, and a willingness to cease communication. Where is the block? Whats happened? You want to build a solid connection and fortify your relationships so that they can be as strong as possible? Relationships to and for self, work, friends, lovers, family, then go back to ONE. Take a breath and start over right NOW. You are not the confusion, and lost and wandering that came before you. You …

I’m A Fool

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

& I’m Weird. & I talk to myself… A Lot. “In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.” – Alice Walker, author, poet, activist We all have this deeper darker self that is so far from perfect. We have to embrace it, embrace how necessary it is to our sanity. Because it’s my inner weirdo who has become my creative muse and it’s him who has stormed onto all my expression, all my art- at once despicable and lovable. And yes, he adores donuts (From Randy’s) just a little too much. He is my shadow. He is …

Be Gentle

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

With Yourself. With The World. Especially with yourself. The World wants you to be in Peace. Wants you to be a shining beacon of light. Wants you to be Strong. So that they can be guided by you. Hang on to your strength and power in troubled times. For that to happen we have to Forgive ourselves. Accept ourselves. Because whatever the EGO hasn’t worked out will be projected onto the world. Know that you’re great. You’re Powerful. You’re Brave. You’re Wise. You’re Beautiful. You are More than enough. You are so perfect. You are Gentle. Be Gentle. Be Light- we can’t see without it. … If You Enjoyed This …

Put In The Effort To Make It Work

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

It will Work. The only way to Transformation is through the Inner Work. It will work. But prepared to put in the Work. All that you deserve has to be Earned. Through the Inner Work – Prayer, meditation, sacrifice, dessert trips, fasting, falling and rising, forgiveness, love. We have to be Willing to Allow everything that doesn’t serve us (doubt, fear, angst, pain, etc.) to Rise to the top and just vaporize. We must be Grateful for the Work. For the ability to put in the Effort, for the lessons, strength and knowledge acquired from the Work. Walk around and away from nothing – – – Walk THROUGH Everything! Transformation …

What is Your “WHY”?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“What are you doing this to yourself for?” 4 other “WHY’s” to help you find your path: 1.  What Is Your Title? – If you are going to use words to describe yourself, you should have both an understanding of their definitions and a pride in their significance.  And then you should strive with all your power to constantly live up to them. 2.  What Is Your Gift? – Second, I believe if you have gifts, it is your responsibility to use them.  And whether you think it or not, you have gifts.  You have a body and a brain that no company or amount of money can reproduce and …

Keep Filling Yourself

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Cut off a little piece of skin. Then a little more. Now reach inside, a little deeper and pull out everything that doesn’t serve you.  NOW Fill yourself with everything you want to become. Everything you know you are. Everything you deserve.  Don’t close the opening, patch it up. experiment. Some of it will feel right, some of it will feel wrong, don’t be attached to it. It’s a concoction, it’s the delicate mix of essentials needed to strive – HAVE FUN. Some days it will sting, some days it will burn, some days you will get it, one day you will have it. Own it. … If you enjoyed this …

No More Excuses

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

  Start. Right Now.  What do you want? Grab it, sacrifice all and make it happen.  Easy as that. Easier said than done – no one said the work would be easy.  But you will never know how fulfilling it is falling trying to do the thing you love, and how much drive you will have to get back up unless you begin – right now.  You have the money you need. If you wait you’ll never have the money you think you will need.  You have the skills needed. If you never begin you will never have the skills you think you need.  Everything needed you already have.  You …

If Tomorrow Wasn’t Promised

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

What would you give for today? Forget everything else. Forget there were any sunlight left. What would you spend today? Thinking about yourself or the man beside you? One opportunity in life. One chance to do whatever you are going to do. Whatever mark you will make. Leave you legacy. And that’s judged by effort and nothing else. Nobody can judge effort, that’s yours. Everyday is a new day, every moment is a new moment. That means you are not anything that came before you. Not 5 minutes ago, not yesterday, only RIGHT NOW. Show the world you are a different creature NOW than you were 5 minutes ago. Angry …
