With a negative attitude, you will subconsciously make bad decisions.  When you are positive, your choices will seem like magic to those around you.

What is Addiction?

What is addiction?  It's when you want to change a behavior and you say, "I'll do that tomorrow."  Then, when tomorrow arrives, you say, "I'll do that tomorrow."  Just shift your thoughts to, "I am doing that now."

What is Meditation?

What is meditation?  It sounds complicated or mysterious but it is very simple.  Sit quietly and think about nothing.  Much like when our mouths stop moving, the mind starts working, and when the mind is silenced, we can connect with source energy.

Infinite Ocean

An infinite ocean
Stretching to eternity
No beginning
And no end
Waves ripple up
Surrounded by others
They are individuals
Unique
But inseparable from the whole
It's hard to imagine
That one wave
Could hate another
But sometimes they do
Until they return
To their source
And they remember
Who they are
Being one
With each other

It's All OK

No matter what happens, everything is perfect.  I'm surrounded by overwhelming love and everything I ever wanted.  As I feed my baby girl, she grasps my fingers and our eyes lock.  I see her now and I've seen the distant future.  The eyes I looked into 40 years from now are the same ones that sparkle back at me today. They are entangled with her smile and nose and cheeks.  Together, they melt my heart and show me the love of spirit that created us all.  

When my baby boy runs up to me and grabs my legs and looks up at me and smiles from a place of pure joy, I know that all is right in my world.  Any wrongs of the day dissolve, unable to withstand the power of his love for me, my love for him, and our love of life itself.

I believe it when they say only love is real.  None of us can live here forever but our consciousness cannot dissolve.  When we leave here we leave all things behind except love. We will not take our possessions, nor will we take our hatred or grievances.  Instead the memory of our true selves returns in a flood, washing away our earthly duality.  We will once again know we are all connected as a part of the infinite whole.

How others make you feel

Rate this item

When someone does something that seems to make you feel bad, the feeling isn't caused by their actions.  The bad feeling is the difference between you and your higher self.  The higher self sees the bigger picture and understands why the other person behaved that way.

Things Are Always Working Out For Me

Are you comfortable saying this?  "Things are always working out for me."  If not, then start thinking that sentence every time something DOES work out for you.  Start with simple things like green traffic lights, good parking spots, or coins found on the ground.  The more you think it and believe it, the more it will become reality for you.

Are you pretty good or great?

Written by

What is your response when someone asks, "How are you?"  Your response says a lot about you. Can you answer the question with the word great?
 
When I was in High School, I was filled with the usual teen angst.  When someone would ask how I was doing today, I would usually respond with something like, "terrible" or "oh God I can't wait for this day to be OVER!"  This was normal to me and I didn't think much of it. 

Now I wonder why I was that way?  I suppose there were adults in my life who were pretty negative and I had just learned to emulate them.  Also, I may have learned it from watching too much television because many shows have a character who acts like that. 

As the years went on, the answer to, "How are you doing?" became "I'm doing" or some slightly depressing answer.  I'm sure if we had Facebook at the time, my daily status updates would have been all doom and gloom.
 
A few years ago, my spiritual studies brought me to a point where my answer was usually, "OK" or "pretty good" but rarely anything outright negative. Now, what you have to realize is that the pretty-good response seemed to me like I was having a great day.  But the more advanced people would call me out on it and ask, "Just pretty good?"  Those people understand that there's still baggage in that response.  If you answer that way, it carries a sense of just hanging in there, or that you wish things were better.  It isn't uplifting to the person who gets the answer.  When you are asked how you're doing, it's a wonderful opportunity to raise up yourself and others.
 
Once I realized this, I decided my answer should lose the pretty.  Maybe I could even move up to "Great!"  But for a long time, I found that I kept answering with pretty good.  Each time I would chide myself for answering that way but I would still blurt it out before I could even think. You might ask, "Why not just answer with great all the time, even if you feel terrible?"  That doesn't work well because if you really do feel terrible, then great is too far out of reach.  I'm suggesting that you work your way up by answering with the most positive feeling that is within reach of where you are right now.  So, if you feel awful, then you might be able to answer with, "I've been better" or "OK."  If you think about it, no matter how bad it is, you're still OK if you are alive.
 
Now that I understood this, I wanted to work myself up to the top of the emotional scale, but progress was a little slow.  Finally, one day at Starbucks, the Barista asked me how I was doing and I answered with, "Good!" A wave of surprise rippled through me, as if I had just emitted some other four letter word. I realized I had finally moved up to good and that I was really feeling better.  Since then, I've proven to myself that answering the question that way makes me feel better, even if I'm not all the way up to good at that moment. 

Also, your response to the question can make the asker feel better or worse.  If your answer is, "Horrible, I think my head is going to explode and someone ran over my dog last night," then think how that makes the other person feel.  Their emotional response might be pity, or (if you respond this way all the time) disgust at how negative you are, or they may even feel like the world is a gloomy and painful place.  On the other hand, if you respond positively, it can give other people a boost.
 
Now, of course, my personal challenge is to feel "great" when asked.  The word has popped out of my mouth a couple times and it made me reflect on how I do, in fact, feel great.  I think that answering with a highly positive phrase like "I'm great" will have an interesting effect on others.  They will start to build up a mental mythology about you.  They might even talk to each other about what a nice, happy person you are and wonder how you do it.

"How are you?"

"I'm great!"

What you say AND think can affect your health.  Are you one of those people who say, "With all these big temperature changes outside, we're all going to get sick!"  It isn't the weather that makes you sick, but rather your beliefs.
