• Today’s Positive Thought (Take Your Time But Make Haste)

    Right now I have a lot of things I would like to see done or more complete.    I had been thinking in a mode that my teacher Mr. Ambrister used to share with me.  He used to say “make haste while the sun is still shinning.”  Well that is what I have been trying to do.   The problem is I want to do big things, I lot of big things, in a relatively short time.  Then this morning I opened up Wise Words, the second book I wrote years ago, looking for my message for today.  The page I opened up to randomly was page 48.  This is…

  • Today’s Positive Thought (“What Kind of Person Are You? Do You believe in signs and miracles or things just happen by chance?”)

    Last Sunday I was sending out a lesson to the Enlightenment members of the MeditativeZone Community and it did not work.  For a moment this was frustrating because the lesson seemed to be the perfect lesson to go out.  The people who were there in person really liked the class and so did I.  But somehow I believe I must have erased it.  I don’t know.  I decided instead to send out an old lesson from years ago.  It became obvious from the response and letters that I received, that old lesson I sent as a substitute was truly the one meant to go out.  Below is a 3.5 minute…

  • Today’s Positive Thought (It’s Gonna Be Easy!)

    Today’s positive thought comes from the second book I wrote Wise Words To A Metaphysical Way of Being and Miracles in Your Life.  It is my reminder and message for today and I thought I would  share it with you.   It’s Gonna Be Easy  There would be many times when my teacher and I would be discussing something that I had to do which would appear difficult or sometimes even impossible to accomplish.  He would always explain to me that whatever needed to be done would be accomplished.  He would always conclude by saying, “And Craig, it’s gonna be easy”. When he told me this, I would be reminded…

  • Today’s Positive Thought (get the lesson and watch the karma fall away)

          Karma is another word for come back or results.  Our current situation is our karma.  It is the results of the way we have acted and thought about our world.  These results are here for us to get the lesson at hand.  When we truly get the lesson, the situation changes.  Once again when we truly get the lesson the situation changes for the better.  I have tested this in my life and seen it happen time and time again.   Years ago I had to downsize my gutter and window cleaning business.  Business suddenly slowed down and I had serious cash flow problems.  I hated the…

  • Today’s Positive Thought, Being Thankful Is Deeper Than We Usually Think

    I remember there was a time in which I had several people who needed my help and insight on some meditation matters.  One or two had called and left messages and others had emailed me.  The funny thing was I did not feel like I had the time to deal with them right away because I was busy working on a plan to reach more people, a larger amount of people, to help with meditation matters.  Once I became more thankful for the opportunity to help right where I was, God sent me more people to help. With my gutter and window business I had a period in which business…

  • Today’s Positive Thought and Reminder (work from the mystical state or your deeper mind and allow the answers to come)

    If you have something on your mind that needs working out, try to work from the mystical state.  Rather than trying to figure it out and get stressed out in the process, try to leave it with God, The Universe, and or your deeper mind, that positive place within that has the answers.  Tell yourself what you need worked out, remind yourself that it is already worked out, then meditate.  Let go of the problem and be prepared for the answer to just show up.  Also be happy knowing the answer will come.  The rest of the day do all you can to keep in a higher state of mind.…

  • Todays Positive Thought and Reminder (We Can Be Worshiping God and Meditating By Doing)

    This morning I was reading a couple of pages out of the book Prabhupada. It is an interesting book that talks about how Prabhupada founded and ran the Hare Khrisna movement.  At one point it was talking about him worshiping God in the very early morning hours, by writing his books and answering questions from students.  I found it quite interesting that his writing and answering questions was considered part of his worshiping prayer and meditation.  It reminded me of, how often when I am writing, or teaching meditation classes, I will feel so stress free and peaceful, sometimes barely feeling my body, just like I am in deep meditation. …

  • When we let go and become an instrument

    Early this week I was marveling at an epiphany I had.  It was not the first time this idea came to mind but it was quite deep to me all the same.  I found myself thinking about how much time and energy we spend building our ego and proving ourselves.  I call it building up our false self, because realizing our true self would be something all together different. When we are building the false self we are trying to get the world to see how great we are or how worthy we are.   This is the part where many of us will say “yea, I know people who…

  • Interview with Positive Ambassador member Mark Jefferson about moving beyond a reocurring nightmare to a miracle

    Image via Wikipedia Craig:  Not too long ago I did a post titled Miracle Yes or No.  Your comment caught my attention and for some time I’ve been meaning to ask you to elaborate.  You said you had just recently exorcised a reoccurring dream after admitting something to yourself and God that you previously were not willing to face.  I wondered if you minded elaborating on the experience. Mark:  Sure, I had this reoccurring dream off and on for almost 20 years.  In the dream, a witch was chasing me. I was literally running trying to get away.  Every time I had the dream the witch would get closer to…
