Rise Above

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”– Gandhi Someone once told me that if you want to change the world, you must first change yourself. That has always stayed with me. If you want people to be more loving, you yourself must love more. If you want people to be less…

No More Suffering

Let’s face it, life can be difficult. However, one of the greatest battles you will face is the battle with yourself. We tend to break down, block, hold back, punish, and abuse ourselves more than anyone else ever will. Many people will say that their negative attitude is born from their circumstances and that if…

The 50 Foot Hole

An old nugget I wanted to revisit. It was centered around consistent growth and not getting discouraged from your current place. Be present in your life and just focus on moving forward. Let me know your thoughts.  “Sometimes people come to me and tell me that they feel like they are not growing, not evolving….

Fulfillment

“To live on a day-to-day basis is insufficient for human beings; we need to transcend, transport, escape; we need meaning, understanding, and explanation; we need to see over-all patterns in our lives.

Divine Assistance

This weekend, I watched the movie The Pursuit of Happyness again. It is an empowering story of one man who used his will power to defeat all odds and obtain his dream. In the movie, one of the jokes had some insight that stuck with me. The joke was as follows: There was a man…

Be confident that you can have the desired effect. Having confidence in yourself to perform a task or manifest an outcome, will amplify…

Go With The Flow

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.  Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes…

Do We Ever Really Die?

It may seem like a simple answer. There is a part of the mind that instantly thinks “of course we do, everyone dies”. You’re born, grow up, become an adult, have a family, grow old if you are fortunate enough, then you die. What about life after death? If you believe the death of your…

Finding Your Purpose

There are a number questions that cross our minds over and over again as we embark on the journey known as the human experience. One of the most common questions is, “Why are we here?” It is a question I know I think about from time to time. There comes a stage in our lives…

Levels

There are many phases of life. In each phase we live, connect, and grow. We face trials and adversity, then are tested by our ability to bounce back. We attempt to fill our banks with money and our minds with memories.  In these phases, it can become easy to look ahead to the next phase….
