Same Message

As I was prepping for being a guest on a radio show tonight, I was coming up with topics about which I would be speaking. My intention is to help people live the lives of their dreams and manna-fest their hearts’ desires. Pretty simple goal, but with all kinds of twists and turns along the way. I liken it to the seed planting that takes place when we want to grow a garden. Vivid imagination is an initial ingredient since before we place the first kernel into the ground, we need to have some idea of the end result. If we went a floral expanse, we aren’t going to plant potatoes and if we want veggies to grow, we aren’t going to plant pineapple. How often, though, do we make that choice when putting forth the seed pods in our minds?

From many sources, comes the same message. The  bible says “Ask and you shall receive.” Abraham-Hicks offers the message consistently ” Ask and it is given.”  Joe Jackson poses the musical dilemma “You can’t get what you want, ’til you know what you want.”  and then The Stones sagely say “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.” How can people discover their passion and purpose?

I like to say that your purpose is what lights you up from the inside and turns you into a human sparkler. What would that feel like to be electrified and buzzing with energy, throwing off vibrant sparks of de-light?  Pretty nice place to be when I am there, which includes writing, reading, listening to music, teaching, interviewing, counseling and coaching. I set up time every day to do most of those things, which keeps my pilot light aglow. In that receptive state, so many ideas, insights and images enter. From that raw material, I create stories, experiential exercises to share, and counseling/coaching interventions. It also helps to have people around me who inspire me with their brilliance and insights, their positivity and get it done attitude. Being a visionary is one thing, but taking inspired action is what really launches us into the stratosphere.

I invite you to listen in to Far Out Radio from 6-8pm est and call in to pick my brain, or whatever is left of it by that time on a Friday evening, at the end of a long and rewarding week.

Making The Ordinary Come Alive
  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own ideas of how life should be, there were times when I questioned my ability to keep up with hi

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,

Hot Air Balloon
Recently I was speaking with someone about the things that weigh us down, like a hot air balloon tethered to the ground with heavy rope, spiked into the dirt, sandbags reinforcing them.  Self deprecation, limiting beliefs, old worn out ideas that no longer serve, all of the shoulda /woulda/ coulda
