Today’s Poetry (Maybe It is Time)

Maybe it’s time to put things to the test

And once again see if the magic is real

It seems it is time for whole new adventures

Sometimes I can tell by the challenges I face

I have done this many times before

And had unbelievable beauty come my way

The Universe has spoken to me so many times

When I have the courage to follow God has shown up

I have found Heaven in the strangest of places

If you have never burst open you ask “What does he mean?”

With this science I have seen rocks turn into gold

When I changed my ways my world transformed

 

When the tough times come.  This is the time to go back to what works.   This is the time to ask the Universe for our next move.This is the time to meditate and go within. This is the time to be true to our lessons, and pay attention to the signs that come our way.

The Power of Atmosphere (a reminder from my ten year old son)

kids-playing

This morning I was talking with my ten year old son Jordan.  He was showing me the card he made for his mother for Mother’s Day.  He pulled out this very creatively decorated card and then proceeded to read it to me.  At the end he read “I love you Mom more than anything.”  It was truly a wonderful card and I hate to admit it but just for a second when he read that he loved her more than anything I thought to myself.  “Wow what about me?  Well second place isn’t that bad.”  It only ran through my mind for a flash of a second.  And I was careful not to let that fleeting thought show at all on my face, in that flash of a second.  But then he stopped and said “Dad, you know I love you and Mom equally.”  I was blown away.

I told him thank you and that I loved him very much too.  Then I told him, that was very thoughtful for him to say, and asked him where did he get that from.  Where did he hear someone say that phrase “I love you equally.”  He said from “Ricky, Dicky, Nicky, and Dawn.”  He said the names rather quickly, so I had to have him repeat it a few times.  I had no idea what this was.  He explained that it is a television show.  It turns out that it is a show about 10 year old quadruplets. who have nothing in common, are often fighting, but they must work together to solve everyday situations.   But what got me was that I was just thinking about how powerful atmosphere is in shaping children’s lives.  And I was thinking about it in relation to his growth spiritually.  This was confirmation to keep working on keeping him in the spiritual atmosphere.  For me this means having him around my meditation center and classes.  It also meant to keep having him watch movies that depict spirituality, meditation, and life lessons.

I did the same thing with my older kids.  I would take them to and show them any movie that had life lessons in them, or that depicted spirituality, having deeper connections and meditation, and then discuss the movies with them.  I would ask them questions to teach them to look for the lessons in the movie, and then ask “how does this relate to life?”  I do this with Jordan also.  As a matter of fact we see almost every kid movie that comes out and he tells me ahead of time the dates the films are coming out.  There are at least two out right now that we have to go see.

I also have to point out that we must do the same for ourselves.  Keep our mind in the higher atmosphere, flooding it with powerful messages in movies, books, blogs, and conversations.  These life lessons manifest and are reflected in how we adults think, dream, live and behave also.

Peace and Blessings

Poetry (To Move Into That World Where You Truly Belong)

 

cropped-fb081-sun_and_sky_.jpg

There are things that we know we need to do and still do not do

There are things that we know we need to stop that we continue to do

These things can make a big difference but we just don’t realize it

A whole new world is waiting if you dare to step in

We think “just this last time I will not be true”

“Next time I will do it ” but  next time is right now

Now is the time, the only time there is

To move into that world where you truly belong

If we do what we know works we get so much reward

If we ask and remain open we are shown the right way

If we have the guts to move on the signs, life will be anew

No time for waiting your adventure is right here

 

Some Questions:

Are you eating the way you know you should?

Are you being as loving as you know you should be?

Are you taking the tough stances you know you should take?

Are you serving the way you would like to be served?

Are you taking time to go within for more guidance?

Are you spending time daily on living your dream?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We Are All Meditating All The Time, So why not change your meditation to enhance your life?

Meditation is focus and we are constantly focusing on one thing or another.  So whether we realize it or not, we are always meditating. Our present world and everything in it is a result of our focus or our meditations.  When we say we want to learn how to meditate, we are actually saying we want to learn how to meditate in way that produces better results. These better results that we are looking for may be better health, greater success, a more relaxed harmonious life, or a deeper spiritual connection.  All of these things can be experienced, by simply shifting our focus.

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

d09eb-background-sky-free-photo-5537
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. . . (You Are Into The Process. Your Whole Life Is About To Change)

When you wake up from a dream that you don’t understand
take some time and ask “What is it trying to tell me?”

When you find yourself in a tough situation
ask God and the Universe “What do you want me to see?”

As you move throughout your life
know that everything is in harmony

The whole Universe is working to get you to
Where you want to be

Your answer as to what’s the next move
is showing up in all your steps

All you have to do
is be open minded and trust

trust in the process
and make it a game

The more you lean into it
the more magic you see

And when you see the magic
you can’t believe your eyes

You feel so good
on the most incredible high

All you want to do is see more
of how the whole Universe is with you

and revealing itself to you
right here in your world

This is the time
to be thankful

This is the time
to meditate and pray

This is the time
to live in light of the lesson

You are into the process
Your whole life is about to change

Positive Guru Application: Pay attention to your inner and outer world. Remember that there are no accidents, and that you are constantly getting hints and clues as to what your next move is in this great game of life. Also know that when you have the courage to act on the information you receive from being open minded and aware,your life changes for the better.

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)

b9cb3-free_landscape_wallpapers

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 Positive Reminder (Birds of a feather flock together)


P
eople can lie to you if they like, but the laws of the universe never lie. One of those laws is, “Birds of a feather flock together”. In order for people to remain in one another’s orbit for any significant amount of time, there must be some common ground or intersection for those involved. Once we realize this, we can tell a lot about people and even ourselves by the company we keep. If you want improve yourself, at some point you may have to change who you spend your time with.

On the spiritual path we should make it a point to be around people who are positive minded and moving in the direction in which we want to go. If we don’t know enough people like this, then we should read books, listen to music, and watch movies by these kind of people and about their lives. Soon we will find ourselves surrounded by them, and in no time we become one of those people we admire.
