With vision there is no room to be frightened. No reason for intimidation. It’s time to march forward! Let’s be confident and positive! – Charles R. Swindoll
what’s stopping us?
Why does fear have such a hold on us?
Imagine living a life without fear of failure or without the deep fear of extinction that we all carry around with us…
How can one live a fearless life?
We are a bundle of vibrations. From the smallest cell in our bodies to the highest thought, it’s all energy and vibration! We must produce positive vibrations, we must dwell in positivity, we must repel negative ones coming from people around us. The way forward can only be good, it can only be discovered in confidence and it can only be created out of vision. Allow the creativity and vision that craves expression through you, a unique and magical child of the Universe, to burst forth!
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM magically creative!

Go out of your way to make others happy. You cannot please everybody, but to those souls who cross your path, give kindness and love. – Yogananda
the secret sauce
The real secret to life is to focus not on ourselves but others. We feel happy when we make others happy, and that raises our own vibrations. Higher, more positive vibrations translates into all-around goodness for us!
a balancing act
Life is a series of balancing acts. On one hand we must love ourselves and pay attention to what works for us. On the other hand we can’t find true happiness without being selfless and of service to others around us.
Daily Affirmation: Today I seek out service opportunities.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it. – Maya Angelou
all about us
Success is all about us. It’s about how we perceive our inherent value and the world outside us. If our general outlook is negative or critical, how can we not be critical of self? How can happiness (and success), then, have any chance of finding us?
At the end of the day, literally and figuratively, if we’re not happy in our own skin, not happy with our selves, we’re not successful. Let’s grab success by its horns by appreciating what we are, what we have, what we do!
Daily Affirmation: Today I like myself, no strike that, I love myself!
Recommendation: A Return to Love – by Marianne Williamson
The person should look for peace within and not depend on it in any other place. There are no waves in the depths of the ocean, it is still and unbroken.- The Buddha
within, it is
The concept isn’t rocket science but how many of us truly believe it, know it or accept it? Peace does come from within even if the object of interaction is outside us. It’s the interpretation of our experiences that allows us to be happy, sad or indifferent. The event is generally out there; our reaction to it comes from within. We choose constantly, it’s up to us.
below the surface
Our normal consciousness inhabits the stormy seas of the thoughts that we continuously manufacture. This storm is at the surface. Just as a scuba diver can descend below the choppy waters to enjoy the prevailing deep calm under the surface, so too can a practitioner of Stillness.
Daily Affirmation: Today I operate from the calm inside me.

What you really want is something that you can’t think about. Now think about that. – Howard Vernon
our endless goals
Ok the quote is confusing, and that’s on purpose. We’re often so lost in our thoughts, about plans, things to do, goals to achieve, this, that and the other, that our minds are never at a rest…
If we can’t be satisfied, now, with all we have and all we are, then our thirst will never be quenched. How can our minds rest? How can we begin to find peace today? By learning to quiet our minds. One simple way is to get out of our minds, literally, and put our attention on our body. Putting our attention on our breathing works real well, try it! Learn about Stillness here.
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM my breath.

There’s never just one right answer…
And there’s never just one right question. – The Universe
settled philosophy, there isn’t
We’ll be lost if we ever think we know enough, about anything. The Universe and the Creator are infinite, time itself goes on forever, so if we’re to have any kind of a meaningful eternal existence, there better not be an ultimate truth that’s easy to reach and comprehend. Your thoughts?
q & a, plus more
Yes there’s certainly not one answer, to most questions. Questions there are many, that can be asked. In fact depending on the questions asked, the Universe responds. The question we ask determines what we see. The Universe and our existence is designed for continuous growth, discovery and adventure! Life is good, and it’s exciting!! Dream on….
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM asking more than I’m telling.
Recommendation: Infinite Possibilities by Mike Dooley
You need only one prayer to cover every difficulty in life. That prayer is, ‘I pray to see more.’ – Vernon Howard
Under what circumstances do we pray? And why? Depending on your religious/spiritual belief system you might agree with me that we’re eventually safe. Nothing can harm us from an eternal point of view. Given that, what should we pray for? What can we pray for?
I pray to see more…
Wow, what beauty and simplicity! That’s all we can really ask for, true understanding about what’s going on, a larger view point which puts everything into perspective, and more patience as time and events rollout reality itself.
Daily Affirmation: Today I seek greater understanding.
