Every Moment You Choose Fear Is A Moment Lost

Will You Choose Fear?

Accepting our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay.
Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously.
Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.
by
Thich Nhat Hanh

Always do your best.
What you plant now, you will harvest later.
by
Og Mandino

What matters is to live in the present, live now, for every moment is now.
It is your thoughts and acts of the moment that create your future.
The outline of your future path already exists, for you created its pattern by your past.
by
Sai Baba

Wherever you are, be there totally.
If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options:
remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally.
If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options,
and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences.
by
Eckhart Tolle

Change your life today.
Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
by
Simone de Beauvoir

Born To Give

Born To Give

Everyone has a present to give to the world but many go unopened.
Please make sure you give your gift.

Don’t let them make the decision for you.
They can’t see it from your point of view.

Make a gift of your life and lift all mankind by being kind, considerate, forgiving,
and compassionate always, in all places, and under all conditions with everyone as well as yourself.
This is the greatest gift anyone can give.

Stress Damages

After all is said and done.

It is what we do with our feelings that determines damage or no damage.

Stress does not own us unless we purchase it for keeps.

If The Universe Has Given You The Passion To Want To Do Something…

Orion and star in the universeIf The Universe Has Given You The Passion To Want To Do Something…

If the universe has given you the passion to want to do something,
then be 100% assured it will give you the ability as well.

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue.
Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge.
Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time.
It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.
by Deepak Chopra

Once you believe in yourself and see your soul as divine and precious,
you’ll automatically be converted to a being  who can create a miracle.
by Wayne Dyer

Change is often hard because it actually causes your body to go into a state of chemical imbalance.
This feels uncomfortable. Most prefer to avoid the change and return the body to a state of balance and return to a comfortable feeling.
They can’t get past the short term discomfort to gain the long term benefits.

Money is no where near the key to happiness but anyone who says it doesn’t make life easier
has either never had money or had money all their life and doesn’t know the difference.

Isn’t Life Grand

ISN’T LIFE GRAND!

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.
By Chief Tecumseh

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when
we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.
For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out
of the ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
By M. Scott Peck

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another,
“What! You too?  I thought I was the only one?”
By C.S. Lewis

So divinely is the world organized that every one of us,
in our place and time, is in balance with everything else.

America Breeds PTSD

armyAmerica Breeds PTSD

Would you believe this was basic training?  Here I am nineteen years old, a freshly graduated student from high school who chose to join the United States Army Corp.  How do a young lady end up in the Army?  I ended up there happily because it gave me hope for having control of my life.

I didn’t know at the time I had PTSD.  I knew there was something going on with me because I just could not relate to the realities adults introduced me to.  I never felt comfortable among my own people.  Yet, when I joined the U.S. Army, I felt comfortable with my fellow comrades.  I’ve often heard soldiers who have returned from war missed being there because there was something special there for them.  Their comrades were their family.  They were never alone.  For sure you felt safe knowing someone had your back even though the enemy was near.

This is what is missing in America, we have no comradeship.  We are at war with no uniforms.  Soldiers returning home have difficulty healing from war because of the lack of love and care they experience when entering here.  Here there is so much negativity and hopelessness.  People killed and victimized on a daily basis.  It is more dangerous here for soldiers than foreign countries because the enemies here are killing innocent people because of what is going on inside of them.  You can’t get a grip on this reality because people are in denial of it.  We are at war here in America because we have  given our power away to external forces.  our priorities are to get more and more stuff and prestige neglecting the heart and soul.  As long as we choose this path, people will continue to die and innocent souls will continue to go to war.  We have to get a grip on this insanity for our children’s sake.  Who is dying more and more daily or endangered?  CHILDREN!  I know because it was once me.  Go back to self—-save yourself from a loveless world go back in!

Own and Maintain Your Backpack

Own and Maintain Your Backpack

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
by Albert Einstein

Decide you are going to accept responsibility for everything that happens in your life and watch how fast things change for the better.

Stop struggling.
Decide what you want and then just turn it over to the universe and keep gratitude in your heart.
Amazing things will happen.

If you are feeling impatient, some discomfort, restlessness…
That is good. A good change is about to come.

There are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely –
or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.
You have that moment now.  Choose.

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.

Happiness comes from within.
It is not dependent on external things or on other people.
You become vulnerable and can be easily hurt when your feelings of security
and happiness depend on the behavior and actions of other people.

Stop Blocking The Light

Those who think that the world is a dark place are blind to the light that might illuminate their lives.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.

Give love when you can and allow yourself to receive love often.
The people who love us deserves to be able to love us.

IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU

When you say “YES” to others make sure you are not saying “NO” to yourself.

Imagination is everything.  It determines everything.
Look around.  This is your imagination.

Never give up great things take time.

Don’t look back.  You are not going that way.

Always remember, no matter what you are going through, NOTHING lasts forever.
EVERYTHING changes.  That is the nature of the universe.

The Truth Will Set Your FREE

sunThe Truth Will Set Your FREE

I am a firm believer “The Truth Will Set Free”.
Any truth is going to send you on a path to make better choices.

My first real experience of how powerful truth is was when I looked up to the sky and asked God to not take my husband,
His first and immediate answer was: “Pray for something else, I already have”.

God told me the truth with no mercy. Walking briskly in heartbroken pain heading to the emergency room,
I stopped and sat down on the bench. Something came into me and made it clear this is the truth of my life now, my husband is gone it time for a new walk with my children.

If I can accept the truth from God in the midst of my broken heart and begin to step in the best direction I can,
then I must know any truth is to my benefit.

The truth will set you free if you let it.

This Man Tells The Truth About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

MORRISThis Man Tells the Truth about PTSD

When I knew I had a truth about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, I wanted a solid confirmation of it.  David Morris’ book “The Evil Hours” is the encyclopedia, Medical Manual and Spiritual Source of Truth in one book.  This man wrote this book with a vengeance and  he took no prisoners.

I am a firm believer to give credit where credit is due.  I take my hat off to David.  He has a very powerful heart and determination to bring understanding and facts about PTSD.  With his personal experiences and his comrades’ take on the journey makes it quite a great experience to read his findings.

If you want a degree in knowing this disorder, his book will give it to you.  I was so thankful it found its way into my life.  Like my book, “Soldier With A Backpack Living and Dying Simultaneously”, we share our take on PTSD because we care about our fellowman.  We can be at a better place when we know somebody besides yourself gets it.  I get it, Dave get and we want anyone who deserves and wants victory over drifting through life feeling less than you have to feel.  If a person can survive with life’s traumas then it is possible for you to be that person as well.

What we allow is some privacy as you experience enlightenment to reconstruct your soul.  Here it is male and female offering you a treasured new beginning.  Let’s do this.
