A Mind That Is Stretched

Once you have learned, once you have become something new, there is no going back. You can't put on the old shape and be who you were before. You might try, but it won't fit. The wear will be uncomfortable, and nothing will hang quite the way you remember it hanging. Grow. Keep going forward. That is how we live.

Doing Your Best

No one is perfect, and you're not always going to succeed. As long as you are genuinely doing your best, always trying and working to correct when you do find errors, you will almost certainly be moving in the right direction. Keep doing that and you'll get there. The journey may be slow, but there's nothing wrong with that. Life is about the journey.

Go Further

This is another case where times have sure changed. It used to be that a child following in a parent's footsteps was the expected goal, but no more. Walk beside me, learn from me - both from what I teach and from my mistakes - and then follow your own path. Don't just go further than I did. Go further than I dreamed. Push the boundaries, and take the world with you. Conversely, parents, don't be afraid when your children outpace you. That's growth, and it's a good thing.

Practice The Pause

They used to say, "Count to ten," but I think this does even better. It isn't about counting or the numbers. It's about taking the time. Don't respond in the heat of the moment. Don't be in a hurry. Know that you have time and will likely see things differently if you use it.

The Most Unloving Ways

Children learn from what's around them. They learn how to love, and how to ask for love, from what they experience. This doesn't stop being true because they become adults, but it does become far more difficult to work with or correct by then. If we take the time to work with the need in early life, we will have less problems with the way it is expressed later on. Children are our future, but that is heavily influenced by what we teach them to be.

Appreciate What We Have

Count your blessing more than your pains. Remember what you have more than what you want. Appreciate your life. When you look for reasons to be grateful, those reasons multiply.

To our friends and family in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving. Love and light to your and yours. Know that we count you among our blessings, and we thank you.

Life Is All About Balance

Do what you have to do, but never forget that what you have to do includes more than just checking boxes off on a To-Do list. To live a full and balanced life must also include fun and relaxation. Everything in its place, and everything in its time. Don't forget to make time for yourself.

A Way Through

There is a common misconception that living in the moment means something akin to giving up, or checking out, but this is not true. It is a peaceful understanding that each moment is transitory, things will change, and we can change with them. The universe is what it is, and we will learn from it and find a way through to the next lesson. There is always a next lesson.

Hours Of Our Lives

Money is nothing more than a representation of time and effort. It has no value in itself. It is what we do that creates value. What we are spending is our lives. Make sure the cost is always worth it.

Conquer Yourself

There is one piece of the world over which you have the greatest control, and it is not that mountain out there you seek to climb. You don't not climb a mountain by chopping it down. You climb a mountain by lifting yourself up, by making the changes within yourself that are need to achieve the task. Ultimately, it is not the mountain that is conquered. When you succeed, you will have conquered yourself.

Never Fear Shadows

Clouds will come and go through each and every life, but you cannot have shadows without light. If something is blocking your sun, move. You're not a tree. You're not planted. The light is there or you would not have a shadow. Don't let fear hold you in place.

The Smallest Acts

No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. Everything we do adds up, and it can all add up to a pretty amazing picture. Do your part, no matter how small, and your part will help change the whole.

The Meaning Of Love

Love of self says, "Make me happy." Love of another says, "Make you happy." Which are you saying to the ones you love? Are you truly telling them that you love them? We should each be considering this everyday, and adjust our behavior accordingly.

My Wish

The world can be a hard place, but that doesn't mean that we have to be hard in turn. The world is changed by our actions, and continuing to demonstrate that kindness works will continue to make the world a kinder place. It's a process, but stick with it. The benefits can be amazing.

At The End Of The Day

End your day with no regrets. Ideally, let that be because you have done nothing which would warrant regret, but we all slip. We all make mistakes. End your day without regret anyway. What is done is done. You cannot go back and do it again, and regret will change nothing. Instead, look forward with a new resolve. An improving life is far better than a regretted past.

The Door Is Open

We each hold the key to our own prison, and are usually a far more merciless jailer than anyone else might be. The door is open. You are free. Step through and discover what life unshackled can be. Enjoy. Live. Namaste.

Find that place where we are all one, and there is no conflict. I don't know about you, but I think we could do with a bit more of the finding and a bit less of the fighting in this world.

We Are All Vulnerable

Growing up does not mean we are no longer vulnerable. In fact, those we see who go so far out of their way to pretend to invulnerability - the bullies, the trolls, the perpetually hostile and surly - these are often the ones who still have the most growing to do. Try to remember that, and it might make a difference in how we interact with the world.

Human Unhappiness

If my happiness is dependent upon a desire to have rain fall upwards, I will be unhappy. If my happiness is dependent upon a desire to live on Mars, I will be unhappy. Reality is. Work with it, work within it, and be happy. When you're ideals, desires, and abilities are aligned, you are happy. Otherwise, not. If you can master that lesson, you will find a new world.

Fear Makes The Wolf Bigger

How many times have you imagined the worst, and the results were nowhere near as bad as you expected? Do not be afraid. What will come, will come. Be alert, be mindful, be prepared, but do not be afraid. Fear makes the wolf bigger, and the wolf does not need your help.

Magic Is Believing

I saw a quote that said, "If you believed in Santa Clause for ten years, you can believe in yourself for ten minutes." That's magic. Do you have any idea how much magic comes with just ten minutes of believing in yourself? Do you know what you could do with that much magic? Now imagine even more. If you don't know, perhaps it's time to find out.

There are so many ways to use the thoughts within your head. It takes the same effort to use them for good as for ill, but the difference in results is fairly obvious. Be the master of your own thoughts, and use them to your benefit.
