• Getting To The Other Side (to a place of peace and adventure)

    Yesterday someone asked about being overwhelmed, having so many things to do and feeling like the concerns in life are taking over.  Interestingly she already knew her answer.  She knew that she had to focus more on the spiritual in order to not be overwhelmed by the material.  This reminded me of a time when I was just about to move to the other side.   I was standing on the shore of being overwhelmed.  I had so many things going on that were taking my attention away from what really counts in life.  I knew what was going on.  I knew I was letting material concerns take over.  I also…

  • Work Scheduling

    This year has been the most difficult year for me in quite some time when it comes to scheduling work for my gutter and window cleaning business.  Using just the right guys on just the right days according to their capabilities and their availabilities and mine has been quite difficult at times.  My life has had more time challenges than usual and so has the lives of my guys, most of whom I alternate part time.  Last night I had the same thing going on, time constraints.  This time the problem was obligations I had versus specific times customers needed my help personally.  I could not figure out how to satisfy…

  • Do what the guru says to do

    No matter what the problem is I face in life.  No matter how difficult it seems to be.  It seems like my teacher Mr. Ambrister had already told me what to do and how to handle it.  There are stories my teacher told me that he seemed to tell no one else. Later I would find myself in situations where I would have to apply the very information he gave me.  When I look back I can see that these stories he gave me were no coincidence.  They were given to me in advance so I would know exactly how to handle things.  The biggest challenge is the things I was told to do…

  • Leave the Rest

    Today I find myself faced with challenges.  They all came at me quite early this morning through phone calls at 6 am this morning.  The concerns were just added on to the challenges I already had waiting on me in my mind that needed to be addressed.  Some of those challenges I did not quite have all the answers as to exactly how I was going to handle the situation.  As I was walking through the house, I found myself thinking about something my teacher would always say.  The funny thing is this same saying also came to me last week when I was going through some challenges.  I was at the gas station…

  • The Last Air bender

    Am I the only one who love’s The Last Airbender Movie?  I have heard and read so many bad reviews.  In some of them it seems like M. Night is the director people love to hate.  My problem with their view point is all of the negative reviews I have read only scratch the surface.  Anyone who gets into M. Night movies knows it’s all about the messages.  Anyone who knows me also knows that that’s what I am all about messages and signs from the universe.  So with that being said let’s talk about the deeper meanings in the movie. 1.  Aang, the avatar, or the last air bender,…

  • Breathing Much Better

    This is a true story.  I was having trouble breathing.  I don’t know why but I believe it had something to do with my allergies.  It was more than just through my nose that I was having trouble.  It was like I could not get in enough air even through my mouth.  It was like my lungs could not take in enough no matter what I did.  I was getting a little worried.  Once again I was reminded of reasons why I want to be on this earth, my primary concerns, and my mission in this life.  I was thinking “man I really want to be here”.   I tried breathing in…

  • 5 minute meditation

    This morning I got up a little later than I wanted and had more to take care of before I started work than ususal.  Among other things I had to go to Meijer a 24 hour store to get cereal for my youngest son Jordan.  I wanted to meditate but felt like I didn’t really have enough time to get a decent meditation in before I left the house. I wanted to meditate so bad that I decided to devote 10 minutes to meditating and then go pick up the cereal, even if it made me late.  I sat down and closed my eyes and within no time I was deep…
