A Full Plate of Love

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! Heaven for my tongue, romance for my teeth. Why we eat Wholesome, Nutritious foods?? Because we deserve it. Food from the Earth? Because it’s a gift, for you; don’t turn your back on Earths Gifts. Small Portions? Because the Gifts are in Abundance, there is always more of where that came from. We do not need to eat or live  in scarcity. Water, Water, Water? Because it’s the Life Force, before anything else. The Earth is made up of %80 water, so is our Bodies- Coincidence? I think not. Water Flows, we too have …

The Refusal To Accept

Suffering: The refusal to accept. That’s it, it’s that simple. Now if we can say “Yes” , that, all is as it should be; even simpler – all is as it is. All is the only possible Now. All is good. All is great. All is as it should BE. All that arrives in your lap is unexpected good, an unexpected tool to learn, to know more – of the world and of thyself. This is all there is; from this place, I have all the tools necessary to be more of life expressing itself through me. Because “bad” is just a label. “Wrong”. “Unfortunate”. All these are just words that make …

The Middle

Anyone who has between phases of hair styles/lengths,  knows the middle is rough, awkward, not ideal place. Its us leaving something we know to embark on something new. It’s scary, doubt creeps in, we contemplate “would it just be easier to turn back before I stray to far? Did I make a mistake? Maybe I don’t really want this? What if it doesn’t work?” Hair is one example. Relationships come to mind – lovers, family, friends, associates. Work- new jobs, old jobs.  Education. It helps to not categorize things as beginnings and endings, what once was, what will be. It all is just one thing- Now. It’s a constantly abundant …

See ME

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value. Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, They found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital. One nurse took her copy to Melbourne. The old man’s sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas editions of magazines around the country and appearing in mags for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem. …

Sooner or Later You Will Have To Give Up

Ask nothing; want nothing in return. Give what you have to give; it will come back to you — but do not think of that now, it will come back multiplied a thousandfold — but the attention must not be on that. Yet have the power to give: give, and there it ends. Learn that the whole of life is giving, that nature will force you to give. So, give willingly. Sooner or later you will have to give up. You come into life to accumulate. With clenched hands, you want to take. But nature puts a hand on your throat and makes your hands open. Whether you will it …

Say Thank You

Your assumptions about the lives of others are in direct relation to your naïve pomposity. Many people you believe to be rich are not rich. Many people you think have it easy worked hard for what they got. Many people who seem to be gliding right along have suffered and are suffering. Many people who appear to you to be old and stupidly saddled down with kids and cars and houses were once every bit as hip and pompous as you. When you meet a man in the doorway of a Mexican restaurant who later kisses you while explaining that this kiss doesn’t ‘mean anything’ because, much as he likes …

Fake It Till You Make It

Has some validity It’s being the person you want to become. It’s living in your highest self right now. It’s not being blinded from this beautiful present because of a future you want. It’s being the movie star in this moment. Being that amazing dancer right now. Being that philanthropist, the rock star- entrepreneur-sustainable-thinker- philosophizer-published author right now! Tomorrow might not come. How we create it? We live it. How we manifest it? We own it, in our breath, every second. We fake it till we make it by surrounding ourselves with it- everywhere. We read books about it, put up pictures and quotes, we write it down over and …

With What Measure Ye Mete

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. – Matthew 7:2 If we could truly understand for a moment the meaning of these words, they would turn our everyday conduct inside out, and so change us that, in an instant (I mean that), our closest friends would hardly know us, our blood left wondering what happened? The plain fact is that it is the law of life that: As we think, and speak, and act toward others, so will others think, and speak, and act toward us. Everything that we do to others will sooner …

What is the “Good Life”?

What they tell us it is? A large house, bottles of champagne and fast cars. Being in the limelight. Watching what they tell  us to watch, listening to what they say is good. Or… Giving back, feeling whole and grounded. Being grateful for every moment. Excited because we earned our rest, excited to wake up to a new and blessed day where we can tackle something fresh and exciting. Mar­tin Seligman’s great book “Authentic Happiness” he says: “‘What is the good life?’ In my view, you can find it by following a startlingly simple path. The ‘pleasant life’ might be had by drinking champagne and driving a Porsche, but not …

You Don’t Have To Wait

  We don’t have to wait, we never did. There are these things called moments and they happen all the time. The crazy part is that each one is brand new, and brings with it nothing of the past, nothing! So every second we have the chance (should we accept our mission) to live brand new. To forget our failures, to leave behind our fears and worries, to bury our doubts, and to be free. We don’t have to wait – not anymore. It’s here, right now, and again, and it just happened, and it keeps happening, begging you to let go and grab on to RIGHT NOW. What’s stopping …
