Being Present in the Moment – Your Life Depends On It!

Intense Stare of a Bald Eagle

 

I was in a restaurant having dinner with my wife.
The food smelled great and the restaurant was not very busy.
We were enjoying a nice meal and having a date.

I was observing what was happening around me and I noticed that one of the waiters was running around like Speedy Gonzalez.  He was literally racing from one end of the restaurant to the other.  Now at first glance it might seem that he was going from the tables in his station to the computer to enter his orders or to the bar to pick up drinks.

But actually he was just racing back and forth without accomplishing very much.  It was fascinating to watch.  I could see him thinking about things in his head so hard and he was so full with the thoughts in his head that he could not pay attention to his customers at his tables or to what he needed to do.  So he went back and forth across the restaurant.

How often are we so busy or full with our own life and situation that we are not present in the moment to see clearly what is best for ourselves and the other people around us?  How much time and resources do we waste.  Sometimes we miss a wonderful opportunity that we could not see because we were not really there.

The following week we went back for dinner to this same restaurant.  Sure enough, here was the same waiter buzzing around the place.  Again, the restaurant was not very crowded and he was putting out so much more energy then was needed at the time.  At one point, he darted across the floor towards the cooking area where the chefs prepare the food and than place it up on the counter for pick up.  The waiter buzzed between some tables heading towards the counter and he was moving so fast that he just missed smashing his face into one of the large plants next to a table.  At the last possible second he realized where he was and narrowly missed the plant.  I was glad he did not hurt himself or knock the plant into one of the guests.

What a wonderful lesson.  When we are so full of our own thoughts or moving so fast in our lives, we miss the moment.

Take a few breathes, in and out through the mouth.  Let yourself be here.  What a wonderful opportunity this moment presents.  Make sure that you give yourself and others the best possible service and success each moment.

Have a wonderful day!

How to Deal with Difficult Situations and People

Some words of wisdom from the I Ching by Brian Browne Walker:

 

Arriving at the correct solution to a difficult situation requires a receptivity to inner truth.
Unless we are willing to put aside the strong emotions of our egos and devote ourselves to discovering what is right, there can be no hope of progress at this time.  Help only comes when we invite it with a sincere and innocent attitude.

The I Ching teaches a simple but effective method of influencing difficult people and arduous situations.  It advises us first to lay aside our prejudices – our feelings of being wounded, angry or in the right – and second to seek to understand the positions of others and the lesson that the Sage is teaching us with the situation. Even when another is truly out of line, it is only by accepting this and remaining balanced that you make it possible for positive change to occur.  Gentleness and understanding create in others an unconscious willingness to be led.

The superior person therefore avoids the use of anger and force in trying times, knowing that they only prolong conflict.  It is far wiser to accept that each experience we have is necessary for us to learn something about ourselves and about the higher laws of life.  The greatest openings come when we meet difficulty with acceptance, gentleness and a desire to understand the lesson underneath.

It is a fact of life that times of decrease come upon us; our resources are limited, difficulty surrounds us and our egos generate angry and unhappy emotions.  Nonetheless, such times are good for us.  If we respond to them by quieting our egos and turning sincerely to the Higher Power for help, we emerge from the period of decrease stronger, healthier and wiser.

The Carpenter

Dragonfly - A Magical Creation

 

from a dear friend:

 

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire.  He told his employer contractor of his plans to leave the house-building business and live a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his extended family.  He would miss the paycheck, but he needed to retire.  They could get by.

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favour. The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work.   He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials.  It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career.

When the carpenter finished his work the employer came to inspect the house.  He handed the front-door key to the carpenter. ” This is your house,” he said, “my gift to you.”   The carpenter was shocked!  What a shame!  If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently.

So it is with us.  We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building.  Then with shock we realize we have to live in the house we have built.  If we could do it over, we’d do it much differently.  But we cannot go back.

You are the carpenter.  Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, erect a wall.  “Life is a do-it-yourself project,” someone has said.  Your attitudes and the choices you make today, build the “house” you live in tomorrow.
Build wisely!

 

Remember…

Work like you don’t need the money.



Love like you’ve never been hurt.

 

Dance like nobody is watching

Dinner Salad for a Woodchuck


“He who has health has hope, he who has hope has everything.”

 

“Know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”

 

Facts:

8
out of 10 Americans over 25 are obese or overweight

1 out of every 2 Americans die from Heart Disease, Cancer, or Stroke
Being overweight significantly increases this risk

 

USA Obesity Rates Reach Epidemic Proportions

The US ranks #1 in Obesity in the world
78% of American’s do not meet the basic activity level recommendations
Obesity is the #2 cause of preventable death in the United States
Being overweight or obese increases the risk of:  Breast cancer, Coronary heart disease, Type II diabetes, Sleep apnea, Gallbladder disease, Osteoarthritis, Colon cancer, Hypertension and Stroke


Total Prevalence of Diabetes

25.8 million children and adults in the United States – 8.3% of the US has diabetes – that’s more people than the entire state of Texas!
79 million people prediabetes
1 out of 3 Americans at high risk for type II diabetes


Current trends in the United States:

40 million Americans are 65 or older and 72 million will be 65 by 2030
89 million will be 65 by 2050, more than double our current senior population

 

Key Information to Take Effective Action:

  • YOU are the actual solution – YOU control your own destiny.
  • Treating symptoms in a world of cause and effect is insanity, it does not work; it’s like putting a band aid on an open artery.
  • Principles dictate every outcome in your life, you need to understand the principles behind disease and true health.
  • To succeed in being healthy you must be totally responsible, committed and do what it takes to create true health in your body every day.


People are living longer and the reality is that you will too.  What level of health do you want for your life?  Do you want to experience the pain and cost of poor health, medical care, surgery and debilitating old age or the joy of increased energy, vitality, flexibility and good health?


It’s simple, QUALITY IN = QUALITY OUT!

1)   Your body and brain is 70% water, drink lots of water.

2)   Go Green!  Eat 70% of your daily meals of alkaline, water rich foods, veggies, salads, fruits & live food that have a lot of water content. 

3)   Exercise and lose weight – start rebounding on a mini-trampoline

4)   Eat anything you want once a week – as a reward for eating healthy every day have one free meal once a week.

 

Why you want to be healthy determines everything you do.  Your reason why has to compel you to follow healthy principles and take action.  You must reprogram your mind and subconscious and empower yourself to live a healthy lifestyle.

Yes, you must develop self-discipline, definite values and clear goals and take consistent action every day.  You can do it! 

We can reverse these trends by eating nutritious foods and exercising.
Live long & prosper!
