No More Excuses

possibleNo More Excuses

It is your turn to decide.

The day you decide you are more interested in being aware of your thoughts than you are in the thoughts themselves –
that is the day you will find your way out.
by Michael Singer

You have that desire because the universe also wants you to have what you desire.
You will not have a desire without also having the means to make it come true.

You didn’t come into this world to fail.
You came here for a reason and nothing can stop that from happening.

Again, don’t make excuses today.

You deserve it the life you are longing for.
You must not let your life run in the ordinary way;
do something that nobody else has done,
something that will dazzle the world.

Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment,
and being love is the supreme creative act.
by Ram Dass

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.

It is time for you to be awake.  It is time for you to know what you are doing.

Accept this moment.  Allow it to happen.

Most people only see what they want to see.  Allow yourself to see it all.

Allow yourself to feel any way you want right now.

Stop Making Your Life Complicated

Stop Making Your Life Complicated

Nothing has power over you unless you allow it.

The measure of your life will not be in what you accumulate,
but in what you give away.
by Wayne Dyer

Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another.
Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment,
and being love is the supreme creative act.

If you think your life is about DOINGNESS, you do not understand what you are about.
Your soul doesn’t care what you do for a living-and when your life is over, neither will you.
Your soul cares only about what you’re BEING while you’re doing whatever you’re doing.
It is a state of BEINGNESS the soul is after, not a state of doingness.
by Neale Donald Walsch

Understand what you want is already there.  You just have to let the energy flow to you.

Inner Peace

Inner Peace

After we have searched our mind and observed its many thoughts
and imaginings, we come to peace.

How long we enjoy this peace is another story.

All it takes is another thought or demand placed upon us
due to our daily choices of responsibility.

We move from one state to another mentally
and physically without thought to our state of mind.

Peace is only required when it is time to rest for the night.
But the key to health is peace of mind.

When we have peace we make more positive choices with our lives.
The key is:  move with a mind that is at peace or don’t move at all.

God promises us He will keep us in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him.
In all we do, do with God awareness.

Peace

Love Can Heal The World

love can healLove Can Heal The World

We are facing a world crisis that will continue to grow as long as we deny the power of love.  The lack of love breeds a ground for war.  Where there is war, we find desperation.  Each soul is born to bear love.  No love means no life.  The world is a cancerous monster right now denying love.  There is no way we can move forward and have hope for the future for our children if we do not face this epidemic.

What has happened to Paris is a reality check for mankind to seek a better way to exist.  God and Love are one and the same vibration.  The lack of it in any individual soul is creating a future of extinction.  We must ask ourselves why we have so much trust in the world’s knowledge when it is contrary to love and togetherness.  Our soldiers go to war, return home to a war they can not win because they would go to jail and to hell for defending themselves against selfish and greedy people.  They walk on land filled with hatred and self-righteousness.  There has to be individual change if we want hope in America.

Love is possible once people realize it is okay to love without loosing.  You love by allowing God to sit in your heart.  You deny the things of the world that keeps you uptight and selfish.  For sure, Paris is experiencing PTSD just as we are here in America simply because sudden trauma has visited their land.  Rape, murder, molestation, abuse, attack of any kind and natural disasters go on daily making our land a place of fear and desperation.

If we do not personally allow God to be the heart of our lives, love is denied resulting in a continued war zone.  Today let go of the world and allowed God to restore your heart and if He does not need to restore your heart, allow God to increase your love flow for the sake of your fellowman.  I am not asking you to be a fool, I am only asking you to be love and trust God to protect and guide you through this life time.  LOVE WILL NOT BE DENIED.

Entertaining Way To PTSD

ellisaWhen I read “Eye of the Beholder” I wanted the whole world to read this book because the author went deep within herself to present it which allows the readers to go deep within themselves. I am not mentioning this book for commercial reasons. I am mentioning this book for soulful reasons.

This book gives you the hardcore reality of PTSD from the standpoint the main character is a soldier with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This soldier had it prior to going to war and it escalated as he lived the horrors of war. This man ‘s face was disfigured which landed him into the hands of a deeply spiritual woman who knew greater is the he of him on the inside than the he that is on the outside.

Reading “Eye of the Beholder” reminded me of how our soldiers are tended to by nurses with hearts and skills to cross our soldiers back to life knowing their lives will never be the same. Reading this book wakens everything possible inside of you, aspects goody two shoes people wouldn’t get yet be stimulated. The fact the writer knew sensuality and spirituality handled correctly and with love brings out a tremendous healing totally.

I had to share this with you because I know God wanted you to know about it. There are all kinds of avenues to get to a better place with self. This indeed is one of them.

Surrender Is Faith

Surrender Is Faith

When we know love matters more than anything,
and we know that nothing else REALLY matters,

we move into the state of surrender.
Surrender does not diminish our power, it enhances it.
by Sara Paddison

Surrender is faith that the power of Love can accomplish
anything even when you cannot foresee the outcome.
by Deepak Chopra

Give up all bad qualities in you, banish the ego and develop the spirit of surrender.
You will then experience Bliss.
by Sri Sathya Sai Baba

The greatness of a mans power is the measure of his surrender.
by William Booth

The word “surrender” is often interpreted as giving up, as weakness, as admitting defeat.

Although this is one way to use the word, we will use it in a different way.

Surrendering means letting go of your resistance to the total openness of who you are.

It means giving up the tension of the little vortex you believe yourself to be and realizing the deep power of the ocean you truly are.

It means to open with no boundaries, emotional or physical, so you ease wide beyond any limiting sense of self you might have.

If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love.
We melt into another world, a realm of power within us.
The world changes when we change.
The world softens when we soften.

When what you feel on the inside surpasses what you see on the outside miracles will happen.
When you admire something in someone you are seeing a reflection of yourself.

Life Is In God’s Hands

LIFE IS IN GOD’S HANDS

            It was back in February I learned one of “The Biggest Loser” trainee of age 51 was hit with a heart-attack.
I still can’t seem to get it off my mind.  He was so filled with strength and vitality and a great motivator.
When he shared his story with millions of television viewers, I saw his shock and pain.

            The thing that stayed with me the most is the fact that he was at an event enjoying him and just dropped.
There happened to be two doctors attending the event and was able to do CPR on him and administer a defibrillator to shock his heart to beat again.
If these two doctors were not there, Bob Harper would not be alive to tell his story.

            What are the chances two doctors are present at the same event he was attending?  They were angels certain he would live.
This tells me, God has the due date for our departure no matter what we do or not do.  Bob suffered from the moment of birth from genes that came with his life.
Thank God he took good care of himself; the impact could have been much worse and still allowing him to be alive.

            He learned so much from this experience, know your body, and know your family history and I am sure he also learned the power of God.

            Read his story let it remind you of the precious value of life.  Live, love, and laugh often and do not forget to thank God you are still here.

Read and Listen To His Testimonial
