focus

Your consciousness and vision immediately starts the process of creation.  With every thought, belief, word and deed, you move in that direction.  Feel how you would feel.  See what you would see.  Say what you would be saying to yourself.  Use your imagination and fully associate yourself in the experience.

Keep your vision focused and consistent. 

Even in difficult situations or economic times, opportunities are always present.  All things are possible, there is GOLD DUST in the air.

Whether you want to improve your health, break an addiction or negative behavior pattern, create a better relationship, business or financial goal, you can do it.

Stay positive and associate with positive people who support you unconditionally.  Use your energy wisely and do not share your dreams or innermost desires with negative people who do not support your truth.

Remember a time when you felt in the flow or in the zone.  You were not thinking or trying to make something happen.  You were just being there, in the moment.

Stay open, positive and expect miracles!

Carrot, Egg or Coffee Bean

A wonderful metaphor:

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her.  She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up.  She was tired of fighting and struggling.  It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen.  She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire.   Soon the pots came to boil.  In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans.  She let them sit and boil, without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes, she turned off the burners.  She fished out the carrots and placed them in a bowl.   She pulled out the eggs and placed them in a bowl.  Then she ladled out the coffee and placed it in a bowl.  Turning to her daughter, she asked, “Tell me what you see.”

“Carrots, eggs, and coffee,” she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots.  She did and noted that they were soft.  The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it.  After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.

Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee.  The daughter smiled as she tasted its richness and savored its aroma.  The daughter then asked, “What does it mean, mother?”

Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity — boiling water.  Each reacted differently.

The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting.  However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak.

The egg had been fragile.  Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened.

The ground coffee beans were unique, however.  After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

“Which are you?” she asked her daughter.  “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond?  Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?”

Think of this: Which am I?  Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?  Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? 

Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff?  Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean?  The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain.  When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor.  If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst; you become even better and change the situation around you.  When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level?  How do you handle adversity?  Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?

The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of things that come their way. 

Have a Magnificent Day!

Argue for your limitations

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

Patanjali

True love is the highest vibration.  Partnership with someone who shares this energy adds another dimension to life.  It is a divine fulfillment.  You become a better person and more of you.

Dreams do come true!  18 years ago today my wife and I went on our first date and have been together ever since.  Later we married on my Grandma’s 100th birthday, in her living room.  What a blessing! 

Learning every day how amazing love is…how strength comes from gentleness.

Yogananda - wealth

Who is your master?
Is it money, success, love, happiness, power, control,  peace, etc.?
What are you planting and what are you harvesting?

What is your purpose for your life?
Why are you here?
What is your legacy?

Life goes by so quickly.  It is easy to become distracted by the many temptations and the noise.  It takes courage and discipline to listen to your intuition and the still, small voice within.  Discover your higher vision and purpose and actualize your full, creative potential. 

“When your aim is not to influence others or to satisfy your ego, but to follow the guidance of the Higher Power in all that you do, you acquire another kind of energy: a balanced and bottomless eagerness for living in step with what is right and good.  In this there is true power and true grace.”
