• Today’s Poetry (A Secret of the Ages)

    kids-playing

    We hold back, afraid it may be taken the wrong way

    Thinking we will gain more by playing it safe

    We may feel that what we give may not be accepted

    How interesting, our grasping, makes our dreams run away

    We must shine like the sun, blow like the wind

    Let the chips fall where they may, and continue to be free!

    What you give may soon be appreciated

    The less we are concerned, the more likely it will be

    The more we meditate, the less we are concerned

    Working without concern is a secret of the ages

    You move toward your objective like it means everything

    But in your heart of hearts you have already let go

  • A Positive Conversation Amongst Friends

    Image result for free images of friends talking

    Ck: I have been feeling sick the past couple days.  Sometimes it takes something like this to find out just how good you normally have it.  In the next couple of days when I am back to normal, I am going to be so thankful. The trivial things that normally get me, won’t even be able to touch me.  I’ll just remind myself that I am so fortunate to be able to function without so much pain.

    Tr: Why don’t you start doing that now, be so thankful for all that you have right now?

    Ck:  Man I knew you were going to say that!  but that’s ok when you are going through something I can’t wait to say the same thing to you. (Ha ha ha.)

    Tr:  I hope you do.  I will probably need to hear it.  Actually, that is what you do. You are always reminding me of what I have, and how good things are. And many times right when I am complaining! You won’t even let me get into it good.

    Ck:  Touche.  Time to practice my positivity now.  Be thankful right now.

    Tr:  I agree,

    Ck:  I am thankful that all my tires have air and I will make it to my destination.  I am thankful that my children are all healthy and happy.  I am thankful that my business is still maintaining well in spite of things being a little slower than usual.  I am thankful that I have good friends in my world to laugh and talk with.  I am thankful for this positive philosophy and my meditation teachings.  I am thankful for the restored health that is on its way. I am thankful for. . .

  • 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.

  • Attracting More Wonderful Gifts From The Universe

    Yesterday I was talking to my friend Aaron who is an electrician for the union, and fellow positive guru.  He was saying that he had been working ten to twelve hours a day on his current job project, but this week, they only have him working eight hours.  He said that he was happy to be getting off early.  He also said that he would probably be back to having to work the weekends this week too. He then said he was happy for extra time and money on the weekend.

    We both concluded that is the way to be in life.  “I’ll be happy and thankful for the time off when God and the Universe gives it to me, and be thankful and embrace it when the extra work comes too. I take what the Universe brings my way and work with it.”

    This is what we call rolling with the Universe, and being happy for the gifts that come our way. This in turn opens up the way for, and attracts more wonderful gifts in the future.  He or she who can adopt this attitude will have many good things come their way, and they will show up as if by magic.

    Peace and Blessing

  • Today’s Poetry (To be one of those men)

    I close my eyes and see four men walking

    These four men are an incredible sight

    As I see them walk, they have a different way of moving

    They take each step like the Universe is with them

    They move with the ojas of peace and love

    They move in a way that is so hard to describe

    They move like they are floating on a spiritual quest

    When you look at them you think nothing can touch them

    As I continue to view all my problems have left me

    My way is so clear, I have a brand new sight

    Nothing else matters and I am one of them

    Like I exist on this other plane and still exist here

    As I come out, there is no question, this is the goal of life

    To change the world as I live on my spiritual quest

    To forget about the other characters, and play my part well

    To be one of those men, to be one of those men!

  • Today’s Poetry (This yoga I practice makes life so easy!)

    Most Beautiful Lotus Flowers Wallpapers

    I awakened this morning and could barely take it

    Worried about my loved ones, How could I go on?

    I decided to chant my mantra and talk to God

    I literally did this with each and every breath

    Within a short while I began to feel peace

    It came so quickly I could not believe it

    It was as though I entered a whole new world

    I dare not stop my yoga practice

    I kept repeating surprised, I felt no more pain

    “What if I did this all day long?

    Will you protect my loved ones and transform my world?”

    I opened up a book for guidance

    “I Dare You To Try It!” is what the page read

    I rise to the challenge and now I float on!

    This yoga I practice makes life so easy!

    But how can you believe what you do not try?

  • 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?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • Seeing The World Metaphysically

    cropped-fb081-sun_and_sky_.jpg

    This morning my ten year old son, Jordan, began to ask me a series of questions.  He started by asking what year my sister was born.  I answered him not having any idea where this was all going.  Then he calculated and stated how old she was when her son, Jordan’s cousin Mav was born. They are only 6 months apart and Mav is not only Jordan’s cousin but also his best buddy.  The two are always asking about each other and wanting to know when they get to be together again.

    Next Jordan began to talk about how old I was when he was born. He reminded me that I was 41 at the time. He then said “That had to be a miracle.”  I thought about it, and asked “Are you saying that it is a miracle because of how many events had to line up, and how many things had to happen for you to both be the same age in the same family, and be able to be so close?”  He said yes.  I told him “what you are looking at is the harmony of God and The Universe.  And you are right.  When you see how many things have to happen in order for you to be blessed by a situation, it is a miracle.”
