Today’s Positive Thought and Reminder (Make Haste While The Sun Is Still Shining)


own a seasonal business. I’m able to work during the warm months and not able to work during the winter. For many years this was my only source of income. So, I had to make my entire income from the spring through the fall. Once winter came I would not be able to make any money. My teacher used to tell me during the warm months, to make haste while the sun is still shining. In other words, do all the work you can while it’s nice outside and don’t have to worry about terrible temperatures. It took a while to learn this. I went through a few real bad winters not having any money. Eventually I learned to make haste while the sun is still shining and focus on heavily on work when conditions allowed and also use my time off to not only relax but devote more time to my other areas of interest.

This is what we must do in all areas of our lives. You have to get it while the getting is good and conditions allow, because we never know when we are not able to have the getting good. So we must definitely make haste while the sun is still shining.

Positive Application: Look at your life and ask “what time is it?” What things would you like to accomplish and see done? Now ask what season is it? Is it time to focus on school or time to work? Is it time to rest? If you have free time, ask yourself, “Am I using it to my advantage?” Make haste while the sun is still shining.

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.

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.

Today’s Poetry (I Float On)

I don’t have to be on top

I can move through the crowd nice and slow

I don’t have to be in front

as long as I get where I need to go

I can flow with the Universe

and be open to where it wants to take me

If I can keep this attitude

I can move on I can move on

Don’t be surprised if you see me flying

If I truly learn to give I might float away

Don’t be surprised if you see me crying

But if you do they are tears of joy

I see her standing by the misstetoe

waiting on me to take her hand

And as I take my material joy

Can I still meditate and remain at one?

I guess you can say that my time has come

For me to dive in and take a swim

And as I freestyle and butterfly

I am thankful that I know these strokes

I float on

Positive Guru Application: As you go through your day, remember to be humble, and give. Good things will come your way. At the same time while doing so, by all means, jump into life and live fully. And as you live out your day and life to its fullest, and practice remaining humble, remember to continue to meditate for maximum peace and enjoyment.

Positive Thoughts From Craig’s Journal (some life lessons and reminders from a meditation)


This morning I had a lot of things on my mind and a lot of questions that I felt needed answering. Some of those questions dealt with my personal life and others with my business life. These questions were posed to God, The Universe, my higher self, which ever you want to choose or all three. They were questions about where my time should be most devoted, where to place my energy, and how to get certain worries out of my head and not be driven by them. I have so many things going on, if I am not careful they can run me and I will feel like I am serving no one. With all this going on I meditated and made it a point to leave all these things to God and the Universe, so I could meditate effectively. To my surprise many things came to me. I thought I might share some of them.

Pay attention to the signs you have gotten before and know they come from a higher place.

Let go of ego as much as possible and make your money. Money is very much needed in this material world.

Build your empire. (This one sounds quite egotistical, but I understood it in a somewhat non egotistical way in terms of my adventure and how I am to serve in life.)

When choosing your endeavors ask yourself who are you to serve? Like your family, kids, students, customers, and keep them in the for front of your mind.

Be who you really are, and keep your balance at the same time. Do not become too obsessive about anything in the process.

While being true to yourself as far as who you are, be easy on yourself when it comes to any mistakes you make along the way.

And remember no matter what takes place, to be like the great masters and meditate often. Your meditating will make you like the great masters and will take you much further than you could have ever imagined.

Today’s Poetry (Lila)


Her name is Lila and she is so beautiful

You could say that she is the past time of the Lord

but you have to have eyes to see her

Or else her sweetness and beauty will easily pass you by


Some would say you are on the great playground

And now is the time to learn to enjoy the great game

But if you do not realize that it is  a game

How much fun are you truly having?


Maybe it is time to see what others do not see

Maybe it is my moment to be at one with the sun

Perhaps it is our time to dance in the rain

And party in the moonlight with Lila once again


Maybe it is time to run with the wind

meditating for strength and then running with the world

Maybe it is really time to hang out with my girl Lila

Transfixed by her beauty while I bask in her presence

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 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.

Today’s Positive Poetry and Question (Are you going to pay attention?)

If you pay attention to the signs
there will be no question where to go

If you choose to be open
magical signs will simply just appear

When the signs come
know that this is your route through Heaven

If you choose to follow
you will have an adventure beyond your wildest dreams

The question is are you ready
for a real adventure?

The question is are you ready
to truly be alive?

No need to answer
the answer is in your next move

If you don’t know what to do
ask the Universe “what do I do now?”

If you have truly asked
more signs are sure to come?

When the signs come again
what are you going to do?

Are you going to pay attention
or miss out on your new adventure?

The time is now, what is your next move?
