Delay is sometimes more important than we realize. We often berate ourselves for not doing something on time, perhaps it’s not going to visit someone, or not picking up the telephone to make a call to someone who might feel better just knowing that we care, but there are always reasons for delays.
Very often we can’t see it, but there’s a plan at work in our lives and the lives of every individual on this planet. When we try to force things to happen, they often don’t do the good that we anticipated they would. This is because there is a perfect time for everything, and in our eagerness to think that we’re important we can ignore subtle clues that the universe is giving us. Think back on your life. Very often, when you have kept postponing doing something, or something hasn’t happened in what you might have considered to be the ‘right’ time, it has worked out perfectly anyway! In fact, probably more perfectly than you could have imagined. Read the rest of this entry »
Jodi Picoult writes, “Is Fate getting what you deserve, or deserving what you get?” As an idealist, I consider these words to be my creed.
Each day I make choices about what I eat, drink, say, or do. Many years ago when I was very young, I made the decision that The Eight-Fold Path of Buddhism was an easy way to self-access my behavior:
(1) Right view – to see and understand things as they really are
(2) Right intention – commitment to ethical and mental self-improvement Read the rest of this entry »
Most people acknowledge the fact that the Moon and Sun direct the oceans, but they ignore links between the planets and human behavior and well-being.
Here is a list of just ten fascinating ways in which the planets affect us:
1. Surgery at the time of a Full Moon carries a much greater risk of severe bleeding
2. More babies are conceived under a waxing Moon
3. Sun spots interfere with communication equipment
4. Tree sap rises under a waxing or full Moon Read the rest of this entry »
Destiny is often misconstrued as an unalterable outcome. Sometimes people will say, “It’s my destiny. I can’t change it.” I believe that each of us create our own destiny by the choices we make.
I’d like to share an example from my life. Some months ago I noticed that my verbal communications with a specific person seemed to be deteriorating. I hired her to do some very important work for me. The nature of her work requires not only expertise, but also interest in the situation and the motivation to go the extra mile.
When she took me on as a client she believed me, and she believed in me. But I saw in time that her faith had shifted. I respect and admire her, so what she thinks of me matters. Read the rest of this entry »
You are the only thinker in your universe, and what you think will be demonstrated in your life experiences. Many of us scoff at such a notion, thinking that it is a lot of “hocus pocus.” But if we really take an account of our lives, we will see that life produced just what we were thinking about at the time.
This is true for the people around us as well. Many of us know someone who complains that they cannot get ahead in their finances, and they never do. You are most likely also familiar with someone who complains of being sick all the time, and that person surely gets every new illness that comes down the pike.
Just tune into what others are saying around you, and then look at the fruitage in their lives. No person can rise above their most deep-seeded thoughts, and confessions of such. Think of it in these terms: your life is like a sacred garden, and what you think, believe and speak are like the seeds you plant in that garden. Read the rest of this entry »
There is that pain again. Oh, yes, I am still sick to death of having it. However, since reading Many Lives, Many Masters by Dr. Brian Weiss, I handle that pain much better. That pain is part of what I call “my story.” I can make up anything I want, or I can accept that I have not made it up; I have remembered it from a past life.
For me, that pain is the spot where I was run through with a sword from the right side of my body, at my waist, in my back and out the front of my body. I was a soldier, a male soldier in a blue, or grey, and yellow uniform. I have no idea where, because I was not famous or even outstanding with a sword, but I was dedicated. It is the ethical part I am certain of. I was fighting for something I totally believed in, and was, therefore, not afraid to die. I was with my friends, doing my job, and it was clear that this destiny was fine by me. Read the rest of this entry »
It is not true that we must live a challenging, tormented life to learn certain spiritual “lessons”. Believing that we are here to “learn” is merely a justification that some folks offer to make sense of the bad things that sometimes happen to good people.
The irony is that those who choose to believe this myth will most likely have to face one trial and tribulation after the other, just as they expected. If someone’s life is awash with “weeping and gnashing of teeth” it is often because they choose it to be so.
There are times when our dream life seems to be super active, and yet at other times not so much. I’ve found there to be a direct correlation between how much a person ‘participates’ in their own life and how active their dreams can be. In other words, we must make our own dreams happen in this life!
There are dreams that foretell the future, and you are really lucky if you have these types of dreams. If you trust your intuition they can be especially powerful, because you can use the knowledge shown to you in such dreams to your advantage, or at least for your protection. These dreams sometimes also give the dreamer a time frame for when something is supposed to happen. Then there are dreams that are more symbolic. These dreams represent something happening in our lives, or the lives of someone close to us. They too can give you direction, but more about how to handle what is going on, or if you are moving in the right direction. Read the rest of this entry »
