5 Limiting Beliefs That Hold Us Back

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“I am, by calling, a dealer in words; and words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.” – Rudyard Kipling 1. Life is fair Living life trying to secure justice never pays off. Well, unless you’re an attorney, then maybe. There will be lots of times when life is unfair. It sucks but “it is what it is.” The sooner you accept that and stop wasting your energy wishing it wasn’t, the more of your life you’ll actually participate in. There are plenty of things in life that are fair too. Your new assignment is to seek them out. You will find what you go looking for. You will get …

The Great Dictator

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Transcript Below: “I’m sorry but I don’t want to be an Emperor, that’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has …

Part of 1 of our 3 part Habit series – Not simply changing but becoming – Habits and how they shape is. … Gets way less clinical in parts 2 and 3 For better or for worse, our habits shape us. No getting around it. A good habit is a strong ally in our journey to becoming who want to be, while a bad habit acts like a millstone around our necks. To achieve our goals, whatever they may be, it’s necessary to defeat our bad habits and encourage the good ones. But how do you go about doing that? Actually doing it, not for 3 days but for a lifetime, how do we …

What It Means To Be Cultured

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

… Or one of my favorite letters ever (I love letters)! Anton Chekhov to his brother, so beautifully honest! MOSCOW, 1886. … You have often complained to me that people “don’t understand you”! Goethe and Newton did not complain of that…. Only Christ complained of it, but He was speaking of His doctrine and not of Himself…. People understand you perfectly well. And if you do not understand yourself, it is not their fault. I assure you as a brother and as a friend I understand you and feel for you with all my heart. I know your good qualities as I know my five fingers; I value and deeply respect them. …

Respect The Ache

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Whoever you are with must respect the ache. Simple. That’s friends, lovers, parasites, family, if they are in your inner circle, they must respect the ache! The ache of striving for a higher self. The days and nights needed alone, the hours needed for searching within. They must understand that you do not fit into the mold of normal, that there’ll be days when you’ll be caught wanting, that you do not live for them, you live for your higher self. They must respect the ache of sacrifice, digging down deep, the non stop hustle of turning dreams, purpose, and higher self in reality. … If you enjoyed this article Please Consider SUBSCRIBING …

Do you agree?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“What are works of art for? To educate, to be standards. To produce is of little use unless what we produce is known, is widely known, the wider known the better, for it is by being known that it works, it influences, it does its duty, it does good. We must try, then, to be known, aim at it, take means to it. And this without puffing in the process or pride in the success.” – Gerard Manley Hopkins   Do you agree?

Unplug, Un-Censor and Create

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

The trick to being truly creative, I’ve always maintained, is to be completely un-selfconscious. To resist the urge to self-censor. Resisting the urge to give into what media and a million billboards, television ads, and trending topics say you should be doing, what you should be eating, and how you should be spending your time. It requires us to unplug, requires not-giving-a-shit what anybody thinks. That’s why children are so good at it. And why people with Volkswagens, and mortgages, Personal Equity Plans and matching Lois Vutton luggage are (often) not. Truly creative people tend not to be motivated by money. The riches we crave are acknowledgment, love and appreciation of the …

Why do what you don’t love?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Why do you do what you don’t love? If a person really knew what they loved, how much room could they actually let other things take up in their lives? How many of their hours or dollars would they let go toward something else? You’d think the things we love are the things we’d be most inclined to do, but this is just not true. Love and attraction are not the same, not at all. Did I spend over $500 on coffee last year out of love? Or out of a thoughtless response to a short-term attraction that I feel at about 7:09 every morning on my way to work? …

What is your mindset!?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

We are what we think. We are what we speak. No getting around it. You will always get what you give. Our outer worlds are pure manifestations of our inner world. Everything is a reflection of whats happening within. Most people don’t get their order because they never ask. Most people get exactly what they fear, because those thoughts are the only thing circulating the mind…  How do you fill your mind? … If you enjoyed this article Please Consider SUBSCRIBING & SHARE

Lose The Crutch. “Fly Closer To The Sun”

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

There exists a mystic Power that is able to transform your life so thoroughly, so radically, so completely, that when the process is completed your own friends would hardly recognize you, and, in fact, you would scarcely be able to recognize yourself. It can lift you out of an invalid’s bed, and free you to go out into the world to shape your life as you will. It can throw open the prison door and liberate the captive. This Power can do for you that which is probably the most important thing of all in your present stage: it can find your true place in life for you, and put …

Loving-Kindness Discourse

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

According to the Pāli commentaries, the Buddha originally gave this instruction (of loving-kindness meditation) to monks who were being harassed by the tree spirits of a forest in which the monks were trying to meditate. After doing this meditation in the forest it is said that the spirits were so affected by the power of loving-kindness that they allowed the monks to stay in the forest for the duration of the rainy season. It is often recited as part of religious services in the Theravāda tradition, but is also popular within the Mahayana tradition. Cultivating mettā through the recitation of the Mettā Sutta is sometimes believed to have apotropaic powers …

12 Things I learned in 2012

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Sometimes it’s okay if the only thing you do today is breathe. Self-love and self-loathing are constant, bickering bedfellows. If utilized correctly, both keep you moving forward. The universe doesn’t hand you anything you can’t handle. Others opinions will always be there. In every city, from job to job, they are just opinions, they have as much weight as we give them. People will always find something in your work to argue with. Get used to being humbled, shutting out the noise, second-guessing yourself, and realizing that one out of six times those cretins are right. Most meetings are about meetings, and if you have too many meetings about meetings …
