Where To Find Help?

God has placed in each Soul an apostle to lead us upon the illumined path. Yet many seek life from without, unaware that it is within them.Kahlil Gibran

at hand

Closer than our breath is God’s presence inside us. He’s ever at hand and ready to help if we but invite him. Will we?


Today I AM leaning into God’s shoulder, I can feel his presence…

How To Control Our Monkey Mind

Like the undeveloped mind, the metaphorical monkey is always in motion, jumping from one attempt at self-satisfaction to another, from one thought to another.Mark Epstein

the monkey mind

In this article by Bakadesuyo we get more info on how to control our monkey mind. We must first recognize its nature. That it wants to continuously jump from one satisfying thought to another. What can we do about that? The classic technique, easy to understand but hard to actually do, is to stay our mind on our breath.


Today I AM focused on my breath. I AM inhaling, then exhaling, I AM Here, Now…

Are We Listening?

The Eternal Lord has been singing this divine song from time immemorial in the hearts of millions.Baba Lokenath

the eternal song

The divine sings, mostly imperceptiviley, and the song reverberates through eternity. Do we have the ears to listen? Can we be still, long enough to try?


Today I AM paying more attention. I AM beginning to hear the faint melody that ever abounds…

Why Have We Forgotten To Breathe?

He who breathes deepest lives most.Elizabeth Barrett Browning

forgotten to breathe

We’ve forgotten to breathe. We will notice that generally we only use one third (1/3) of our lung capacity! What would happen if we started breathing more deeply, throughout the day? We will be able to:

* Become calmer, reduce stress/anger and erase fear

* Stay centered and present

* Experience better health and a clearer mind

Breathing deeper will help us become happier and more fulfilled as human beings. All that for no real extra effort!


Today I AM breathing deeper all day long! I feel good!

Why Here and Why Now?

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And Tomorrow is only a Vision;
But Today well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!


here and now

This is it, today and now is all we have! We live our entire life, our existence, our dreams and sorrows; all during today.

We often spend time regretting the past or reliving it. We also spend time worrying about the future. While it’s good to learn from past mistakes and great to plan ahead, lets not miss out on the priceless opportunities that ‘Now’ has to offer. The ever present and eternal Now is where reality intersects with consciousness, which is the real YOU.

Be Here Now, Now Be Here.Ram Dass


Today I AM here in this Now. I AM present.
