• Today’s Positive Poetry (Those Great Ones Have Many Ojas)

    The ancients say that those great ones have many ojas. And the more ojas you have the more spiritual you will be. These ojas are a spiritual substance and are developed by meditation, thoughts of the eternal and concentration on higher centers within A person who has developed many ojas is not your average person They will be be very balanced in their approach to the world. They are quite considerate of others And often what they want is taken care of without them even lifting a finger You will find they are natural leaders They may lead many or only a few They may do so without even trying…

  • Today’s Positive Question (When the entire Universe shows up and talks directly to you, are you going to take heed and listen?)

    Last night my friend Aaron and I were sitting at the bar at J Alexanders and began to have a conversation with the lady next to us. During the conversation we came to an agreement. We all agreed that God and the Universe will give us chances to turn it all around and in many cases show up on our doorstep to do so. As we laughed talked and agreed I gave an example from my favorite scene in the movie American Gangster. Frank Lucas, the gangster and drug dealer is talking with his supplier. His supplier who is making millions off selling to Frank, looks at him seriously and…

  • Today’s Positive Thought (Even if you need a million dollars go out and get it. Just remember to repeat your mantra)

    Even if you need a million dollars, go out and get it. Just remember to repeat your mantra. As we are progressing on the spiritual path, we have to remember that we are still in this world, and fully enjoy it. Whatever it takes for us to enjoy our life and accomplish what we need to accomplish on our journey, we should get and use to our advantage. It is no coincidence that we are where we are experiencing what we are experiencing at this particular time in history. So even if you need a million dollars go out and get it, just repeat your mantra. This means, do what…

  • Is my story going to be a great story or not? (a page from Craig’s Journal)

    My teacher, Mr. Ambrister, used to tell me to go to the churches and teach the ministers how to meditate. I seemed to always feel uncomfortable whenever I thought about taking such steps. I thought I may be looked at as arrogant or crazy with people asking, “Who does he think he is coming to our church wanting to teach our minister or us how to meditate?” But now I find myself questioning, what do I love? How much do I love my causes? Am I now going to be willing to put myself out there beyond my comfort zone? Am I now ready to take some risks that I…

  • Today’s Poetry (Why would I ever waste time with cares and worries?)

    I once heard a wise man say to never let your royal feet touch the ground And if we step off the red carpet we will soon lose the Midas touch To walk on the red carpet is no small thing Its like being connected to the Universe while everyone figures out the world Trying to figure out the world is such a crazy task We often do this when things are not going our way We say “why are they doing this? and I hope I get that” and speak on what we don’t want to have happen If we continue on such a course our fears will surely…

  • Today’s Positive Thought (Use this moment to connect)

    Every moment is another chance to connect with the eternal. Use this moment for that purpose. Whether it be by posing a question to God and the Universe and waiting for an answer, chanting a mantra throughout the day, or seeing yourself as the light and an instrument as you go about your tasks. Use this day, this moment to connect. You can watch a movie that reminds you of a higher way of being. You can listen to an uplifting CD or MP3. You can take a quick moment for meditation. Constantly remind yourself “I am connecting, I am serving, I am being” as often as you can, this…
