“Hardship, in forcing us to exercise greater patience and forbearance in daily life, actually makes us stronger and more robust. From the daily experience of hardship comes a greater capacity to accept difficulties without losing our sense of inner calm. Of course, I do not advocate seeking out hardship as a way of life, but merely wish to suggest that, if you relate to it constructively, it can bring greater inner strength and fortitude.”
At times, life brings pain and discomfort. In our toughest moments, we are blessed with the greatest opportunity for growth and transcendence. By not resisting life and the way the moment shows up, we transcend it. Discover the wisest options and outcomes available. Turn disadvantages into advantages. Turn lemons into lemonade.
The key is not necessarily doing something different; the key is being different. Be your Highest Self. Live as an immortal, Spiritual Being.
Allow life to be the way it is, let go and do not resist it or try to change it. Use the situation to empower yourself and take your best action at the most appropriate time.
Observe the situation. Find ways to discover advantages in your disadvantages. Be creative and curious…..like a child. There are opportunities within every problem. Turn frustration into fascination.
Complaining does not help and it wastes our vital energy and resources while attracting negativity. Close your complaint department for the next 24 hours and watch your life transform!
Let go and allow what is to be the way it is. Take a few deep breathes. Respond rather than react. Observe without judgment. Discover what is happening and what is best for all involved in this moment. With clarity the decision actually presents itself; take the appropriate action.
You can grow, transform and be successful from exactly where you are now. Use whatever challenges you have as opportunities for growth and development. The greater the challenge, the greater the potential success or triumph!
What an opportunity! This moment is your point of greatest power. What is happening must happen, so make the best out of it. Make the highest and best choices for you, your family and your team.
Rise above the storm of human events and circumstances in your heart and consciousness and soar like an eagle. Create miracles!
Be a Champion of Optimism!

An enlightened perspective from Jeff Maziarek in Spirituality Simplified:
“Remember that every cause you initiate leads to an effect. So, when you give from the heart, you set energy into motion that must in turn find its way back to you in some form. I say in some form, because there is no telling how or when the effect may show up.
For example, let’s say you donate a sum of money to a cause that has inspired you in some way; this does not necessarily mean that you will receive the same amount or more in return. The positive energy you extended may instead come back to you as a new business or career opportunity that appears seemingly out of nowhere, or it may manifest for you as improved or continued good health, or as a breakthrough in a troubled relationship, etc.
Now you might say that this is not always true, as there are many instances in which people give but do not seem to receive anything positive in return. In some cases this may appear to be an accurate appraisal. However, more often than not, if you were able to look deeper into the motivation behind the giving, you would probably discover that their intent wasn’t quite as pure as one may have originally thought.
Specifically, when the giving is done with the objective of receiving something in return, or because the person feels like they have no other choice but to give, then the underlying motivation behind it is rooted in scarcity. Since the Universe always knows what our real intentions are (i.e., our true feelings), it is not surprising then that people who give from this frame of mind do not receive anything in return.”
As you give, so shall you receive.

Respect – The Key To Life
by Dave Chief, Grandson of Red Dog, Crazy Horse’s Band
“Respect means no interruption.
Respect means no confrontation.
Respect means no accusation.
Respect means no “mocking,”
Especially, no mocking of elders.
Respect means no lies between us.
Respect means no betrayal of confidence.
Respect means no “ripping off.”
Respect means no hording.
Respect means no “Lording it over” someone.
Respect means no ordering around.
Respect means no yelling in anger.
Respect means no bad language.
Respect means no name calling.
Respect means controlling yourself.
Respect is not a commodity.
Respect is a way of being.
Respect is in our chest not in our hand.
Respect is for all of life.
Respect is for every species in the world, including all four races.
Respect is for all our relations.
Respect is focusing on and dealing in “issues” and not “personalisms.”
Respect is focusing on “what” is right rather than “who” is right.
Respect means owning our own negativity and not being a “Blame Shifter.” A “Blame Shifter” is one who projects or shifts his own negativity onto someone else. This is the process of bigotry, war, and genocide.
Respect is keeping the lines of communication open with those who have a different opinion, and making a sincere attempt to let them be heard and understood.
Respect means listening until everyone has been heard and understood, only then is there a possibility for “Balance and Harmony,” the goal of Indian spirituality.
The Indian prayer, “All My Relations” is a prayer of Respect for the Hoop of Life. Almost everyone believes Respect is a good thing but few people have a clear idea of what Respect means or what Respect looks like.”
with love and respect,

From Florence Scovel Shinn, The Game of Life & How to Play It.
“People little dream of how their affairs react on the body. There is a mental correspondence for every disease. A person might receive instantaneous healing through the realization of his body being a perfect idea in Divine Mind, and therefore, whole and perfect.
What man condemns in others, he attracts to himself. Man picks up a live-wire whenever he criticizes or condemns. However, if any good message has ever been given to one, of coming happiness, or wealth, harbor and expect it – it will manifest sooner or later, through the law of expectancy. Man’s will should be used to back the universal will, “Thy will be done.”
It is God’s will to give every man, every righteous desire of his heart, and man’s will should be used to hold the perfect vision, without wavering. It is, indeed, often an effort of the will to leave the husks and swine of mortal thinking. It is so much easier, for the average person, to have fear than faith; so faith is an effort of the will.
As man becomes spiritually awakened he recognizes that any external inharmony is the correspondence of mental inharmony. If he stumbles or falls, he may know he is stumbling or falling in consciousness.
There is no loss, and when man takes his spiritual stand, he collects all that is his from this great Reservoir of Good. “I will restore to you the years the locusts have eaten.” The locusts are the doubts, fears, resentments and regrets of mortal thinking. These adverse thoughts, alone, rob man; for “No man gives to himself but himself, and no man takes away from himself, but himself.”
Man is here to prove God and “to bear witness to the truth,” and he can only prove God by bringing plenty out of lack and justice out of injustice. “Prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of Hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”
May you manifest the Divine Plan of your life, under grace and in perfect ways!
There is GOLD DUST in the air!

Florence Scovel Shinn taught metaphysics and prosperity consciousness in New York for many years during the Great Depression. Her meetings were well attended and even today, her books have a wide circulation all over the world. T hey have a knack of finding their way to remote and unexpected places. Thankfully her books found their way into my heart and consciousness at the divine time when I was ready and open for them.
