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

When you are in their presence you feel uplifted

When you are around them you are so alive

and everything in life seems to make perfect sense

You will find that they are all attractive

So people love them and seek their presence

Some seek them for conversation, others for their atmosphere

Some see the wonder of their greatness while others just feel it

Some profit from their inspiration and go on to change their lives

Some understand their greatness but choose not to profit

Some even resent it, due to conflicts in their own lives

while the wise see their greatness and choose to follow suit

and develop this spiritual substance called the ojas

They become bright shining stars in the galaxy of life

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 tells him. “It is not in my best interest to tell you this, but there is a big difference between quitting and quitting while you are ahead.” At this point Frank has made millions and could retire with no problem. He also had begun to have problems with the police and other signs telling him maybe it is time to get out. But what are the odds that his supplier who is making millions off of him would tell him this against his own best interest. I said to myself this is where God and the Universe stepped in.

We all agreed that this was not just a scene in a movie. but something that happens all the time in life. The Universe is always giving us chances to move forward to higher ground, and will even show up in our world to speak to us directly. We just have to be open enough to take heed and listen. Frank chose not to and lost everything. His beautiful homes, apartments, his wife, all his money and his freedom. All because he chose not to listen when God and the Universe showed up. Once again he could have kept all of this, and moved on to a whole new life, without all the danger and worries, if only he paid attention.

My question I had to ask myself, and now ask you is, how has God and the Universe showed up to talk to you, to enhance your life, protect you and yours, and lead you to a better place? And when the entire Universe has shown up in your world, to talk directly to you, are you going to take heed and pay attention?

Today’s Positive Poetry (Found my way)×320.jpg

I no longer care what they think of me

I am in the zone

I just want to give and be the light

The sound of enlightenment is blaring.

I feel so good like this moment could last forever.

Do I stick with it or come out ant write?

I just want to be the way I feel right now, in my life,

and dance this new dance.

This new dance has always been with me.

But was overshadowed by fears concerns and worries

So now I let go of these things

I want to feel this way forever

Time to stop writing and go back.

I want more energy. I want to be more at one.

How could I have left this way of being, even for a minute?

Once again I am back.

I have truly found my way

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 you have to do to have the life you want for yourself and your family. Just be sure to include God and keep God with you throughout the process. Trust as you move forward the universe will move forward with you providing what you need.

Mantra means repetition. All day long we are all repeating mantras whether we know it or not. Whatever is on your mind, that tends to be what you repeat in your mind, and focus on. When we are taught to meditate we are given a mantra to shift our focus to the higher things. When we keep our mind on the higher things while we are completely into our adventure, doing what we have to do, the rest takes care of itself. We must also remember that nothing is impossible when we include God in the project.

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 have been holding back on? Is my story going to be a great story or not?

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 come about

In the meantime
the entire Universe is right here with us

If we can realize this
everything soon turns into to gold

In the meantime
walking on the red carpet is easy

you simply focus on what’s beautiful
and embrace what is

If you remain thankful
you will see good everywhere you go

What looks like a problem
becomes the greatest blessing

If you meditate and stay humble
all is in divine order

You learn to let go of ego
and pay attention to the signs

And it all seems to happen
without much effort

Everything you could ever want
soon comes your way

And you wonder
how could so much good show up so quickly?

But this is what happens
when you stick to the way

You get what you always wanted
and more than you could have ever imagined

People see you and they are bewildered
but is it really you that they see?

So why would I ever waste time
with cares and worries?

When I can keep my mind
on higher things

Why would I think about things
I don’t want to happen?

When I can meditate on the beautiful
and the good coming my way

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 day.

Remind yourself to let go of accomplishment. Let go of winning, and proving. Let go of how you feel you have to be perceived. And by all means tell yourself “I am one, my purpose in this moment is to connect.”
