• Casting Pearls (Just A Reminder)

    Twice or maybe even three times this week I made the mistake of “casting pearls before swine”. Ofcourse this comes from the biblical quote “Do not cast pearls before swine”. My teacher Mr. Thomas Ambrister used to say this often. The meaning was do not share your precious and newly found ideas and discoveries with those who are not in your corner or do not understand. If you do they may oppose you, use it against you, or undermine what you are trying to accomplish. This is easy to understand and look out for when you are dealing with people who are not on your team or clearly do not…

  • A Secret About The Positive Mind

    One of the most positive things in the world to me is the fact that we have access to all the answers. I mean this literally. No matter what it is that we are going through we literally have access to the best way to handle the situation. As a matter of fact if we look at our lives we can even see a theme. If we have a challenging situation going on in one area of our lives, more than likely we have the same thing going on in other areas of our life, if we take the time to step back and look. Actually the truth is whatever…

  • An Amazing Experience

    Today I had an amazing experience. Some will also see it that way after I explain it and others will see it as good luck or coincidence. You be the judge. I was in downtown detroit taking care of some business in the federal building. When I got there I only had two quarters in change for the parking meter. I was limited on time and did not have time to go somewhere and get change for the meter. The two quarters bought me 30 minutes in time. So I went in. I figured if things go smoothly I will be out in time. I hoped I would because I…

  • A Positive Story From A Friend

    Sunday My friend Charles told me a story that was very positive and uplifting but I did not realize how significant it was in my world until this morning. This morning I was feeling that in some ways I was not living up to my potential. Even though I know I have a great life I also know that I could be doing more with it. I was thinking that “looking at all that I have how could this bother me so?” Then the story popped in my head. The one Charles mentioned in meditation class. He said that he was at a some type of jazz outing and he…

  • The Kings Speech Movie (spiritual interpretation)

    Last week I went to see a movie and the theater made a mistake and listed the wrong time. When I got there I decided to see The King’s Speech instead. The lady at the ticket counter told me that I was lucky and whether I realized it or not, I had upgraded. She was so right. The movie is about King George The VI when he was still heir to the throne, actually the second in line behind his older brother, and his overcoming a speech impediment, in order to lead the English nation into battle during a time of crisis as the new King. The movie focused on…
