Resting On Laurels Is Not An Option…

As we step into our second day of 2022 know this: If we rest on our laurels, we’ll never continue forward in creating the world we want to reflect the good we give or the best of ourselves… Without our continued best and forward momentum our world will continue to be a “mixed bag of tricks.”

Continue to build on your best…if you must rest…pass the baton to those who you can count on to better your best…you’ve supplied the stability that they can continue to expand upon and carry to the next level of triumph…and if they need to rest, they can pass the brick and mortar to the next builder…

Life is an endless journey of experience and growth…lessons and accomplishments to give lift to the wings of humanity. Don’t neglect your gifts…use them to create a better world…after all…you are an essential part of this stairway that leads to a future for those we will eventually leave behind as caretakers…

Every day of 2022 will lead to a significant achievement…if we are vigilant…and our hearts are truly in the right place…

The only promise or resolution that you cannot break…is to be true to yourself and your dreams…without infringing upon the lives and dreams of others…making sure that your best…builds a bridge that all can cross with humility…compassion…and hope for a bright future.

Happy day two…into 2022…..

A Matter of Choice…

Everyday we are faced with making choices…and accepting the consequences of our choices…good or not so good outcomes…however, our choices just the same.

No one can make us do anything…they can present us with choices…which we ultimately will settle by making our choice, weighing the consequences of our choice, before we make it.

Some people choose to believe, demonstrate and declare that they are being forced into making choices that may or may not be agreeable to them or their lifestyle…. Taking that stance and making such accusations and assumptions free their conscience from taking responsibility for making a choice…any choice…especially if they view it as unfavorable to them.

Life is made up of moments and choices. Free-will is always exercised no matter how dire the outcome or circumstance…or how wonderful or brilliant the yield may be in making choices.

Very rarely do our choices not touch the lives and circumstances of others. Many choose (there it is again, “choice”) to believe that their choices do not affect anyone or anything other than themselves…

Not true.

Just because that is your belief and you do not always look beyond your choices, doesn’t make your choice solely unto you. The universe is based on connectivity to all things great and small…

So when you make your choices in life, consider the responsibility. Choices direct lives…make lives…take lives…destroy lives…break lives…give lives…extend lives…spare lives…respect lives…appreciate lives…humble lives…restore lives…

Strive to make the best possible choices and understand the consequences…and take responsibility.

Responsibility is also a Matter of Choice….

Live…and make responsible choices…

Don’t blame others…for the choices you make…

Your life…your choices.

Every choice creates a thread…

Every thread connects a life…moment…or universe.

Be grateful for the journey…

And create a “better.”

It’s your choice……

A World of Lies…Or the Light of Truth?

A World of Lies…or the Light of Truth…

Which would you prefer?

A world of lies…or the light of truth?

I strive to tell the truth and shine the light of truth in everything that I do…I would rather sting in the moment of truth rather than drown in an ocean of lies.

What I write isn’t always going to be popular, pleasant, or delightful…however, it will be the truth…not “my truth,” but the truth…

It is important that we build our lives in truth…and live our lives from truth…no matter how we might perceive it as painful or too sobering…because lessons in truth form the core of our being…and should we speak from “our truth” it should always be drawn from experience.

Opinions “of truth” are just that…opinions.  We should not offer opinions of truth because they tend to distort “innocence” in thinking for oneself…and create someone else’s point of view within our consciousness. 

Our quest for truth is a journey of enlightenment for our souls…we nurture our desire to be filled with light…the light of truth elevates our being…gives us powerful insights… and allows us to see the real reality of any situation.

When we accept lies, we cloud our consciousness and our perceptions to what is reality…and what is not.  Because lies are constructed on falsehood, they will eventually crumble and tumble down…bringing you along with it. 

Sometimes, there can be no recovery because the damage is too severe…and one cannot emerge without scars…or the loss of one’s soul.

Truth and lies…a fine line to walk…yet an easy line to cross.

My sincere and deepest thanks to everyone who ventures across this threshold and stops for a read or two…and sometimes, what you’ve, read resonates your soul…and you take a seat…to see what is coming next, from this school of thought…

You are the tomorrows of today…walking your path of light in search of truth.

Welcome to this journey…I promise to always bring you truth…because deep within the caverns of our souls…

Truth…is what we are….

And what we seek to become…

A part of the flame that eternally burns…

In Truth….

A world of lies is fleeting…

Only truth remains constant…

Savor the transformation….

A new day and age has dawned…

A World of Lies…

Or the Light of Truth?

Let the Light shine…

Within…and without….

Peace…..

Today…Make A Vow…

Today…Make A Vow…

Today…Make A Vow…To be True To Yourself…

You are the one person who matters this New Year…This New Day…

Getting it right with yourself means that not only you benefit…everyone around you does also.  Everyday…and every second of everyday…connect to the source… God…the Universe…whatever is the source that feeds your fountain…your soul…and connect to get your “assignment” for your life’s direction.  This will be the page of your “purpose” added to your Book of Life on your journey of conscious discovery…

Receive the Vision…meant for you…

Have ears to Listen…

Listen to the whisper…it will become louder and louder…God is speaking to you…

We are our own “experiment.” We determine if we will become a successful experiment…or a failed first trial…Everyday…every second…we have the ability to alter the “formula”, to add the right ingredients toward a successful outcome…or we can choose to stay with the present set of ingredients…and never produce a successful result….

Be true to yourself…set an example…become the remedy or solution. 

Don’t waste energy complaining or explaining the logic of any situation.  Become the solution and “project” the “cure.”

Life is much too short…every day we get confirmed truth of this realization. Power up through your source…and Become…

Become the person you want to be…by becoming the person you are meant to be…connecting to your source every moment of every day will guarantee you… Become…

Soon it will be “second nature” you will have developed your key to connect by remaining true to yourself.

This is the one place in your life where you become “selfish” to be “selfless”…

Live in no one’s shadow…Become the Light….

Today, you have 363 days…to be true to yourself…to transform yourself…and those around you…

Today…Make a vow…

Today…in vowing to be true to yourself…you will influence someone you touch…to become your legacy….

What is your legacy?

Do you know?

Yes…you do…here’s the formula…

Connect to your source…Every second of every day…

Have ears to Listen….

Receive the Vision…meant for you…

Become the remedy or solution…

Don’t waste energy complaining…

Become…and “project” the “cure”…

Live in no one’s shadow…Become…The Light.

How do you receive the formula?

Vowing to be…

True to yourself…..

How Fragile Is Life…

How Fragile is Life…

Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, Christina Mauser, John, Keri and Alyssa Altobelli; Payton and Sarah Chester; and Ara Zobayan were not expecting to be casualties of a devastating helicopter crash on the morning of January 26, 2020…yet, it came to be…

My mom used to say, “Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Live each day as if it were your last.”  She always reminded us children that we needed to love one another, and to be grateful that we were fortunate to wake up every morning…because tomorrow was not a promise…

How Fragile is Life…so much so, that we must live it with joy…happiness…forgiveness…humility…appreciation…gratitude…wonder…thankfulness… awe…strength…courage…honesty…compassion…peace…reflection…thoughtfulness…focus… adventure…integrity…wisdom…truth..love…love…and more love…giving love beyond your comfort zone…unconditionally…to all who pass your way.

No matter how long or short our journey here, once we leave it all behind, our story is written…no matter how or what the circumstance of our departure, we must live each day as if it were our last, and to the fullest…The lives of those on that helicopter on that fateful day, were journeys on a path that intersected with their cycles of life…

We know not the day or the hour…and we must not spend our moments in anticipation of when …why…or how…it is only our journey to live…love…and be the best of ourselves to one another…to our surroundings…and to ourselves…

How Fragile is life…in cosmic time, it is only moments…fluid and fleeting…waiting for no one…life is in constant motion and transition…cycles of beginnings…and endings…from one form…to another…change is inevitable…

Celebrate the lives that have left us…the fragility of life is a constant reminder that we must embrace it with love and acceptance…and forge our paths with gratitude…leaving behind the best of our moments…and the best of ourselves.

How Fragile is Life? It’s here today…and tomorrow? Meet it with Love…Life is too short for anything less than Love….

A Journey…

I woke up in the wee hours of the morning very distressed. I thought about my ongoing dilemma on how to help my mother be free of her present circumstances, and the flood gates opened! Everything imaginable from my life rose up to remind me how my concerns as a child and an adult, have always been on saving the world…The world is a chameleon of unpleasantries…most of which will probably never be disengaged from their “reign of terror” upon this globe we call Earth. Suddenly, I felt small and worthless. ‘How can I, a “nobody,” attain such a task?” Then I heard a voice say, “It’s a journey…with a few farts along the way.” That voice belonged to my guy. He always had such a way of putting things in their perspective…even if it was a little crude! Lol… Yet he was right…Life isn’t the perfect orb behind those rose-colored glasses. Get rid of them, and put on your industrial boots and gloves! There’s going to be a lot of wading through the bandini in the process of clearing and cleaning up those paths through your journey of life…Oh yeah, don’t forget to hold your nose!!!

We must remember that we aren’t “Atlas.” It isn’t the expectation or the given that we take the world upon our shoulders.  We are here for such a small speck of a moment in time…and we must make the most of that moment. “You are a child of the Universe…no less than the trees and the stars…you have a right to be here…” Claim your right…define your presence in your moment…and know when it passes, your moment becomes a  historical thread in the tapestry of this planet’s history…forever your “footprint” in time….
