Today’s Positive Thought (No Time To Waste Sitting Around. . . Time To Get Busy And Stand up)


In the movie Bridge of Spies, a client tells the main character that he reminds him of a man that he once knew. He said this man was prisoner who was told to get down on his knees. When the man refused, the guards beat him with a stick until the man fell to the ground. The prisoner got back up and they beat him down again. This happened several times until eventually the guards stopped beating him and just left him standing there. The other prisoners called him “standing man”

This is the kind of man the lawyer our hero and main character was, a man willing to risk it all for his cause and what he believed in, one who had the courage to stand up.

Positive Guru Application: When you sit down for meditation prayer and introspection, or as you go throughout your day, remember to ask yourself these questions. What do I believe in? What do you believe in my gut is right? What means so much to me that I am willing to do whatever it takes to make sure it is achieved?

Once you have the answer, there is no time to waste sitting around. Its time to get busy work day and night towards your goal, and stand up.

Today’s Poetry (Some of us)


Some of us
are born into one

Others of us
are fortunate enough to be pulled into one

Some of us
are searching to find one

And yet all of us
must become one

A Family

Positive Guru Application: Remember that there is nothing like family, be it blood or the people who have become close to you and a part of your world. Be thankful for those people in your world who you care about and who care about you. They are truly a gift from God and the Universe. The more we can see and understand this the more we are moving towards the oneness all the great ones have been talking about.

Today’s Poetry (As I Sat There Analyzing)


As I sat there analyzing my dream
I could see it was built upon thoughts of the previous day
My words thoughts and actions came back to life
And I would not even see this if I thought it was all by chance

Realizing the harmony it was so amazing
As I live my life I create all the time
Whole new worlds that I travel into
Complete with new scenery in my dreams at night

So I asked myself what about this dream?
Where does it come from? From where is it built?
Is it any different from the ones I dream at night?
Or is this the night and those dreams the day?

In a flash of strange knowledge, I was told it’s the same
This day is a dream I myself have built
Based on thoughts and actions from the previous day
And the dreams that I have, when I sleep at night

Positive Guru Application
: Pay attention to your focus. Keep your mind in a positive atmosphere. Your focus determines your actions and your thoughts, which also determine where you find yourself next.

Only make good deals, and you will find yourself in the best of situations (A Dream interpretation)

Question for Craig: I had a dream last night in which I was to be seated at a table with my Grandmother. My children were with me. I felt as though my Grandmother may oppose us being there with them, because we were of a lower class or caste. For a moment I felt bad and crunchy or somewhat inferior. I was telling my kids, “it is okay we are going to sit that table with them regardless of how they feel.” As I was coming out of the dream, I was thinking “My Grandmother would never feel that way about me. Why am I having this dream?”

When I woke up all I could think about was a job we had to do for one of my clients. I felt like I did not charge enough and was in a bad deal. Do you think this had anything to do with my dream?

Craig’s Answer: Yes absolutely. Our dreams reveal quite a bit about ourselves, and are often trying to teach us how to behave better in the future. The fact that your first thought was about this bad business deal says a lot. But the fact that this was your Grandmother in the dream also tells us that at times, you may place yourself in bad deals in your personal life also, where you struggle with feeling inferior. Not with your Grandmother. She was only a symbol. But perhaps in relationships with your wife and children, or with friends.

In the future, you must only make good deals in which you are feeling yourself valued. Doing this will change how you feel about yourself. You will be telling yourself and the Universe that you only deserve the best. The entire world will respond accordingly, and change how it responds to you. If you can do this, only make good deals, you will find yourself in the best of income situations, and personal relationships.

Today’s Positive Guru Application: Pay attention to how you deal with other people. All day long we are making deals. Only make good deals, being fair to the other party, but at the same time absolutely feel fair and good to you. Soon this will become a habit and you will be surprised at where you find yourself in business and in love.
