How do we achieve this spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially? Meditation is a wise choice and place to start. It transforms our life and consciousness on all levels and transforms the world.
We each have only so many hours in the day and our time is so valuable and in demand. How we spend it and where we focus our energy is critical to actualize our full, creative potential.
The world offers many choices and distractions. There is so much happening and we can be bombarded by all of the information sent our way in this technological age.
There are many demands placed on us at home, work and in our community. Balance and harmony are important qualities.
Where we give our energy and resources is totally up to each of us. The priorities and boundaries we establish become our focus of attention. Our beliefs and values color and dictate our choices, decisions and actions. We each determine the quality of our life.
The most important person we communicate with is our self! If we are not clear what happens when we interact with others?
Deep down inside, we each know what is best for us.
Are we asking the important questions?
Who am I?
What am I?
What is my purpose for being here?
What is it I want to contribute to this world?
What is my highest potential?
Write down what you want and how you will accomplish it on paper. We cannot achieve success or true greatness if we are not willing to put in the time, energy and dedication on a consistent basis. There is no such thing as an overnight success. We have to develop and express our inner potential and greatness. No one can do it for another person, no computer program will make it happen. The secret is inside of each of us and we have the power, ability and talent to make it real in the world.
Have you noticed the difference from being creative vs. being competitive? We can always compete with our self, to grow, develop and be better. Whenever we compare ourselves to someone else, the ego gets involved and we or them always come up short. There is no one to compete with. Be the best you can be every moment and stop comparing yourself to others. Each of us is one of a kind. No one else can do exactly what you are here to do. You are a unique, incredible being!
Life is precious. Make the most of your blessings and gifts. Discover your heroic mission, your truth and go for it.
Remember, we can have anything we want in life as long as we do not violate the rights of others. All things are possible.

The greatest challenges in our lives cause us to tap into our core strength. These challenging moments help us discover our true essence and glory. They empower us to transcend our limitations and achieve amazing results.
This is when we experience the full brilliance and depth of our faith. These moments empower us to acknowledge our true connection to the Supreme Creator and Source. The trick is to let it happen, to trust and be open to new ways. Change is good and it is the way of life.
“The only constant is change.“
Our world is moving faster today than ever before. The population is growing, the effects on our planet are intensified and technology connects us instantly now. Notice the frequency of natural disasters and economic and cultural upheavals. Everything is happening faster and faster.
There is a quickening of the energy all around us. It is a wake up call to follow The Natural Laws of the Universe and Proper Principles. With so many more people on the planet and a greater need for food, water, shelter and education, we must come to a greater understanding to work together, share the natural resources and help each other.
We are facing our greatest tests and challenges as families, as nations and as a world people. We are all connected, created from the same energy and we are one. Honesty, integrity, love, compassion and kindness are the only way. The old pattern of greed, power, corruption and manipulation cannot sustain itself.
A new day is dawning. We must all tap into our core essence and work together. The light will shine so brightly that all of the dark corners of our world will be transmuted, cleansed and transformed. It is time for enlightenment and enlightened leadership.
Change and transformation is occurring at a rapid rate all around us. Our world is transforming into a more glorious pattern. Let yourself be open to new ways of living, communicating and moving forward. It is all for our good and for a better world.
Have faith, trust and expect miracles.

“Grandfather Tells” also known as “The Wolves Within”
An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, “Let me tell you a story. I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times.”
He continued, “It is as if there are two wolves inside me. One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way. But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing. Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit.”
The boy looked intently into his Grandfather’s eyes and asked, “Which one wins, Grandfather?”
The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, “The one I feed.”

There was a young woman who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and had been given three months to live. So as she was getting her things ‘in order,’ she contacted her Rabbi and had him come to her house to discuss certain aspects of her final wishes. She told him which songs she wanted sung at the service, what scriptures she would like read, and what outfit she wanted to be buried in. Everything was in order and the Rabbi was preparing to leave when the young woman suddenly remembered something very important to her.
‘There’s one more thing,’ she said excitedly. ‘What’s that?’ came the Rabbi’s reply. ‘This is very important,’ the young woman continued. ‘I want to be buried with a fork in my right hand.’ The Rabbi stood looking at the young woman, not knowing quite what to say. ‘That surprises you, doesn’t it?’ the young woman asked. ‘Well, to be honest, I’m puzzled by the request,’ said the Rabbi.
The young woman explained. ‘My grandmother once told me this story and from that time on I have always tried to pass along its message to those I love and those who are in need of encouragement. In all my years of attending socials and dinners, I always remember that when the dishes of the main course were being cleared, someone would inevitably lean over and say, ‘Keep your fork.’ It was my favorite part because I knew that something better was coming…like velvety chocolate cake or deep-dish apple pie. ‘Something wonderful, and with substance!’
‘So, I just want people to see me there in that casket with a fork in my hand and I want them to wonder’ What’s with the fork?’ Then I want you to tell them: ‘Keep your fork ..the best is yet to come.’
The Rabbi’s eyes welled up with tears of joy as he hugged the young woman good-bye. He knew this would be one of the last times he would see her before her death. But he also knew that the young woman had a better grasp of heaven than he did. She had a better grasp of what heaven would be like than many people twice her age, with twice as much experience and knowledge. She KNEW that something better was coming.
At the funeral people were walking by the young woman’s casket and they saw the cloak she was wearing and the fork placed in her right hand. Over and over, the Rabbi heard the question, ‘What’s with the fork?’ And over and over he smiled.
During his message, the Rabbi told the people of the conversation he had with the young woman shortly before she died. He also told them about the fork and about what it symbolized to her. He told the people how he could not stop thinking about the fork and told them that they probably would not be able to stop thinking about it either.
He was right. So the next time you reach down for your fork let it remind you, ever so gently, that the best is yet to come.
Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. Cherish the time you have, and the memories you share. Being friends with someone is not an opportunity but a sweet responsibility.
And keep your fork!
