that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.

Those who do not have power over the story that dominates their lives, the power to retell it,
rethink it, deconstruct it, joke about it, and change it as time change, truly are powerless,
because they cannot think new thoughts.

Get Out Of Your Own Way

Go out of your way to experience something new today.

You haven’t achieved what you want in life
because a part of you doesn’t want to let go of where you are now.

Speak to the universe.
Tell it what you want.
You may be pleasantly surprised.

Don’t be afraid to become what you were meant to be.

Don’t ever for the slightest moment think you don’t deserve to be happy
and get everything you have ever wanted.

A Son Shares His Father’s Experience With Cancer

healing

What is your attitude about life?

Attitude is one of the biggest factors
that determine how we live our lives.

Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can
or you think you can’t you are correct.”

Our attitudes can turn what appear to be misfortunes into blessings.

Our attitudes can even save our lives.

I want to share with you a lesson I learned from my dad.

My dad lost his fight with cancer a little over a year ago.

What most didn’t know is that when he was first diagnosed he was given at most three years to live.

He turned three years into THIRTEEN.

The biggest reason was his attitude.

As a side note I hate when doctors give you a time limit on your life.  Most people take this as fact and end up living just about as long as the doctor gives them.

Doctors are human.  I’ve spent a lot of time with doctors outside the medical environment, “in real life”, playing cards or stuff like that.

There are times when I have thought, “This guy is a doctor?  Really?  How did he pull that off?  That is scary.”

Don’t get me wrong.  We have a lot of great doctors.  A lot.  I’m just saying doctors are not perfect.

So how did my dad’s attitude extend his life?  Was it just his positive thoughts that kept him alive?  Of course not.

He still sought out medical treatments and kept up with the latest developments, including a lot of trials.

He even still had moments where his emotions got the best of him. But for the most part he accepted his present situation, but knew he could do things to make it better.

It was like okay here is where we are, what do we need to do to get to there?

And many, many times over I saw him get to “there”.

There never was any, “My life is terrible.  Why did this have to happen to me?”

I never saw any constant complaining or self-pity because he knew if he started down that road he was giving himself a death sentence.

Most people like to complain.  It actually gives them a little relief from their life while they are doing it.

But constant complaining is like a drug.  It may make you feel better at the time but it is doing harm in the long run and the longer you do it the more harm it is going to do to you.

By not constantly complaining and taking control of his life and having an incredible attitude my dad added many healthy years to his life.  In fact you wouldn’t have even known he had cancer until the last year.

Do you think a numerology reading can give you insight to your health?  I know it can!

SEEGER WEISS LLP is one of the nation’s leading plaintiffs’ law firms. The Firm currently numbers approximately 20 attorneys operating out of offices in New York City, NY; Ridgefield Park, NJ; and Philadelphia, PA. It focuses on mass tort and class action litigation, with particular emphasis in the areas of products liability, pharmaceutical injury, consumer protection, environmental and toxic tort, securities fraud, antitrust, insurance, ERISA, employment, and qui tam litigation.

Our Services

Founding partner, Chris Seeger, began his career representing corporate interests through a variety of bankruptcy and commercial litigation lawsuits. Seeger took notice of how many individuals were being victimized by corporate abuse and malfeasance and therefore decided to shift his focus to these individuals in pursuit of justice. In his shift to the plaintiff’s bar, he began his own practice which would in time become Seeger Weiss. This firm has a “leg up” on competition considering their extensive experience in both personal injury law and multi-district litigation and ensure clients receive a fair settlement.

Our Team

Located in New York, Ridgefield Park, and Philadelphia, Seeger Weiss takes pride in the talent and skill of its attorneys: a diverse mix of big-firm veterans, former prosecutors, and home-grown partners. These lawyers, in turn, have given Seeger Weiss a breadth of experience and sophistication that’s striking for a plaintiffs’ firm, helping build it into an all-purpose, high-octane litigation powerhouse not confined to any one specialty.

Dear Racist

Dear Racist,

First of all I want to thank you for reading my letter.  You do not know me and I don’t know you but I have felt your presence many times.  Yesterday I started my day thanking God for waking me up and allowing me to have a job.  There was a warm and grateful smile on my face as I greeted strangers I passed as I walked through the parking lot to enter the doors to my job.  As I turned the corner to get on the elevator, I was greeted with a dark, cold and fearful unseen vibration that made me wonder if Satan himself had entered the building.  I took a deep breath and proceeded to get on the elevator.  With a smile on my face I pushed the button to the floor I was heading to.  In the meantime there I was just you and me.

You stood there like you were made out of stone definitely was not giving up any eye contact.  You just stood in the elevator as far from me as you could almost as if you were not breathing.   Looking up with a smile, I silently thanked God I did not have to carry that spirit of racism in my soul.  I was glad you kept your distance because shielding me from your cruel vibrations was already difficult.

I don’t understand how you choose to hate someone you know not anything about.  Obviously, it is quite a chore to live with this conscious choice.  But do you know what it is doing to you?  There is no way hatred, anger; disgust, evil thoughts, and a need to attack and kill does not have a price.  These vibrations harm and kill the body.  Love cannot exist with these vibrations.  You can’t turn it off and on to love and return to hate.  It does not work like that.

How do I know how detrimental your state of existence is?  Easy, look at yourself.  Your consumption of hate is so great that you can’t keep it to yourself.  You have to find some kind of way to release it.  So powerfully overwhelming you have to release it on innocent people.  It kills you so you kill people.  It would take aliens from another world for you to realize there is only one race, the human race, a race God created.

I pray that you be set free from this demon of hate so you can live a healthier and warm life.  Your life is valuable.  My life is valuable.  God made us to love.  Just stop it, you don’t need it.  There is so much more to feel and experience in this life.

God Bless

Micro VS Marco

Bambi-vs-Godzilla-on-Bad-Language-w480-h480_thumb

Micro VS Marco: Keep It Simple

When we  take a real look at life, we must admit the journey is quite overwhelming.  Just when you think you have figured it out, something happens and rocks your world.  The key is to see the whole picture.  You are a micro in a macro world. We don’t think about it we just walk into it like it is normal to be infested with negativity and detachment.

Look at yourself, you are just a single unit of existence.  You are free to bask in this state of being at home but once you walk out the door of your house, your single unit is forced into the macro existence of millions of micros forcing a chaotic and loveless macro that is usually very harsh and selfish.

You get in your car and head to work.  You notice many micros looking very numb and unhappy.  How are you looking to others today?  Are you contributing to the massive heartless macro or are you able to separate yourself from the energy field it possess by smiling and counting your blessings?

The macro does not have to push you around and put you in survival and victim mode if you empower your micro to be here but not here based on what is permeating from your being.  You must make your home heaven on earth.  It has to be the place where you regenerate positive vibrations within your being.  Your environment has to be vibrating a high frequency of good, love, peace, strength, freedom and acceptance of self.

When you make this a priority, you can step out into the macro and not be killed mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  You can also be a contributor to the mini micros who are establishing a base of positive vibrations to exist in a better state of being.  This is a lifestyle with great rewards.  Establishing a self-nurturing base for your self gives you power that grows and become a light in a dark world.

Save your self and love doing it.  It is a beautiful journey.  When you do this, the macro has to back off and emerge with its own kind.

There Is A Magic About You

Today we are going to slow down and see how important we are to our self.  We need our self to learn, grow and love.  What is needed by everyone is space to see.  When our lives are filled with clutter of things, people and activity, we cannot see the forest for the trees.  Facing the world today, we are going to set everyone free to be just who and what he or she may be.  Let the God they serve give them what they deserve.  No longer are our views of what seems best for others are going to control our actions if we see early on it does not make a difference.  It comes a time when becoming less because we’re reaching for others is not acceptable.  Instead, we are going to keep the strong strong by respecting, acknowledging, nurturing and blessing them in unique ways revealed by our hearts.

No longer are we going to drag the weak  because usually the weak are selfish and use our compassion as a means of obtaining what they are capable of getting for themselves.  We are gong to love them with a trusting love that their God will see them through.  Like us who have experienced pain and suffering of some kind and had to move forward so it is with our loved ones.  They must feel the pain to grow if we keep giving them band aids they will never mature or become strong enough to come out of needy mode.

Our love will be the right love where we know for a fact things do get better with or without our two cents.  Save those two cents for positive things that are flourishing.

Love confidently!  Love your self enough to say no sometimes and yes when it is fruitful. We all have a journey even our loved ones.

Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviors.
Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits.
Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.

Give Your Self Time

Give Your Self Time

The only thing holding you back is yourself.

Do not react to your feelings… create with them.

Learn from the things that irritate and aggravate you the most.  They are there for a reason.

I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention.
To not be like your parents.
To not be like your friends.
To be yourself.
To cut yourself out of stone.
by Henry Rollins

You may be surprised at how many good things or people you have let slip

Nothing Can Bring You Peace But Yourself

Nothing Can Bring You Peace But Yourself!

Looking for peace is like looking for a turtle with a mustache:
You won’t be able to find it. But when your heart is ready, peace will come looking for you.
by Ajahn Chah

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.
Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles.
by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others.
He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
by Buddha

Do not confuse peace of mind with spaced-out insensitivity.
A truly peaceful mind is very sensitive, very aware.
by Tenzin Gyatso

Two things rob people of their peace of mind :
work unfinished and work not yet begun.

This Is Your Moment

This Is Your Moment

Treat every moment of you life as the most exciting time.

I have realized that the past and future are real illusions,
that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.
by Alan Watts

 You are the creator of this very moment.
You have the potential and power right now to do what you want to do.
Breathe in this moment.

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.

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.

Life Isn’t Always Fair

“Life isn’t always fair.
Some people are born into better environments.
Some people have better genetics.
Some are in the right place at the right time.
If you’re trying to change your life, all of this is irrelevant.
All that matters, is that you accept where you are, figure out where you want to be,
and then do what you can, today and every day, to hold your head high and keep moving forward.”

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
