Moving around through a day, most people never stop and consider the influence their meer presence has on those around you. Your mood and the way the you interact with those encountered on your journey, will have an effect on all even if you don’t realize it.

Prisons
Many of us exist in prisons of our own making that stop us from expeiencing life fully

Many of us exist in prisons of our own making that stop us from expeiencing life fully

Yesterday I was writing to a friend of mine who is currently incarcerated in prison. I don’t know any of the details, but I know that she is one of the kindest, most gentle and caring souls I have ever come across in life.  Through the course of my writing I had the occasion to consider how much I would dislike…

Out of Character

real meFor the entirety of my life I think that too much time has been spent thinking about who I am or what I am going to become tomorrow.  How is that identity even established? What difference does it make?  So much of my time is spent on developing this persona, which when it is examined closely isn’t even real.  If it isn’t time to let go of that now, then it never will be.

Accept New Beginnings

moving-on-doesnt-mean-you-forget-about-thingsThere is nothing that is as exciting as a new beginning.  Reading yesterday I came across this theme that is often a problem for me and many others,  endings are hard.  All things in the history of the world have had a beginning, a middle and an end. That is the way of all things.  Often times when the end is harsh there is a lingering of regret that remains which does not allow a person to let…

Finding Your Gold Inside

Finding Your Gold Inside

How long have you forgotten the gold inside of you?

How long have you forgotten the gold inside of you?

It can be amazing to think that we spend so much time and effort in our lives looking for things which are outside of our existence to make us happy, when the place we should be looking is inside of ourselves. The thoughts we think and the beliefs we adhere to and the actions we take surrounding them are all contributing factors to what we do…

Increase Your Knowledge

All people each day have the opportunity to learn knowledgemore about something and to expand their own mind and the horizons which a soul has the ability to see. Knowledge is the great equalizer for all people and the choice to not pursue it will make you a smaller person and limit what you can do.

Escape Your Limits
qqq

These walls are built when we are young and live in our minds as limiting beliefs.

Look around you and see what is there. As I peek around the life that I am living I see many things that appear to be limits to what I can accomplish. There are walls, both literally and figuratively in around me that make taking some actions seem difficult to nearly impossible.  The excuses of life are used, one…

Your Own Arc
build your own arc

Build your own arc, no matter what anybody says about you or your task. If it is inside your heart, do it.

The story of Noah has always seemed a bit silly to me. A guy decides to build a giant boat on dry land and to put animals on board. It made no sense and people generally ridiculed him for being different and having beliefs. Of course the story ends in success for Noah, and those who…

I Went Down to the Crossroads

We all face many crossroads in life, but making decisions never gets easier.

We all face many crossroads in life, but making decisions never gets easier.

I have been mulling over a lot of choices lately. Which way I should be going, what move will take me down the road that I am supposed to move down to find success, happiness, love, or destiny?

Life has a way of putting you into positions of choice. Some are minor and we make them without…
