Do you take LIFE too Seriously? Find out, Take the Test


If you smile while watching this video that means you passed 
the test and firmly believe that in the spirit of play, life is EASY.



If you have ever been called different, strange or weird, this 
article is for you: They said I was CRAZY...but I knew who I was...

The Real Value of the Facebook 'LIKE' Button and Twitter Retweets.


Every time you hit someone's Facebook LIKE button, or retweet someone's Tweet, they think about you. 

The more often you do that,  the more they will think about you.  

The more they think about you, the more they will want to get to know you.  

The more they want to get to know you, the more they will click links learning about you. 

And if your links (and what you share with them on the pages your links take them to) make them feel good about themselves, they will become addicted to you

And once they become addicted to you, they will want more of you. And once they want more of you, if you have 'goods and services' of genuine value and they want what you have, they will buy them from you before buying them from someone else. 

And if you don't have any 'good or services' to share with people, the worst that will happen by LIKING and RETWEETING people's stuff is that you will end up making some pretty good new friends.  New friends that will, often times, result in opportunities and possibilities for your life that you never knew existed before.

That's the real value of Facebook LIKES and Twitter Retweets.  

Let Life AMAZE you, I do...


Positively Yours,

Life not working as well as you would like. Use the OMT, I do.

.
The 'organizing intelligence of the universe' gave me the OMT.  The OMT is short for the 'One Magnificent Thought'. I use the OMT every single day of my life. In the beginning, I had doubts about the power of the OMT but I persisted in using it and at some point the OMT took root in my subconscious mind. 

Once it took root in my subconscious mind, that thought became an automatic habit of thought. From that point on, my life got better and better and easier and easier for me with no struggle or effort on my part required. To improve my life with no effort at all, I just had to use the OMT as the 'organizing intelligence of the universe' instructed me to use it.  

Over a period of time, the use of the OMT made me feel extremely happy on the inside for no logical reason I could explain.  Once I started feel amazingly good on the inside, despite the existing negative circumstances in my life at that time, I began attracting incredible people and amazing events into my life that changed the circumstances of my life from not great to astonishing.

Using the OMT resulted in me to come up with an inspiring signature line for my emails which is:  

Let Life AMAZE you, I do.

The Traitor Lives Witin you. It's name is Self-Doubt

.
The only real troublemaker you will ever have in your life is self- doubt.   Let me explain: 

You do or say something, then after the fact you have doubts about whatever you said or did....and then you try to correct what you said or did and instead of you having less doubts, you have more... And instead of things getting better for you, they get worse.  

Nothing robs self-esteem faster than doubt.  Doubt will slay your best thoughts. Doubt will destroy your faith in God. Doubt will depress you, make you feel hopeless, powerless and put you into a state of despair. Doubt will discourage you, make you quit. Doubt will make you give up on yourself. In worst case situations, doubt will make you feel suicidal.  

Doubts gain power over you when you resist them, believe in them or wrestle with them. If you mess with your doubts, they will bury you.  However, if you leave your doubts alone, they will leave you alone.


Stop Believing there's something wrong with you. There is not!

.

People have been telling me all my life there is something wrong with me?  How do I know that isn't true?

ANSWER: The only thing wrong with you is that you BELIEVE there is something wrong with you. That doesn't mean there is something wrong with you, it is only something you believe. 

The reason you 'believe' there is something wrong with you is because from the time you were a small child the authority figures in your life constantly told you (or implied) that there was something wrong with you as a way to control your thinking and behavior.

God made you. He doesn't make mistakes and he didn't make a mistake when he made you.  For you to believe that there is something wrong with you requires you to believe that God makes mistakes, He doesn't.   The way you are is exactly the way God wants you to be.  

Yes,  you are different than the others but so are the flowers in God's garden. All different from one another.  The differences is what make's God's garden so beautiful.

If you want to be sure there is nothing wrong with you, read my story.  It is in two parts. Here is the first part They said I was CRAZY...but I knew who I was...

How to make a 'Thought' Grow into your Physical Reality.

.

Everything in life is created twice, first mentally, then physically. Your thoughts are seeds. They grow into physical reality the same way a rose grows.

After you plant the seed of a rose, you can no longer see it. Once your seed is planted, you have faith the universe will supply it with the water and the sunlight it needs to grow and burst forth through the earth into your physical reality.
 

Your intention is a thought, it  is your seed.  You add water and sunshine to your intention by always thinking good thoughts about it and by having faith that it will grow and become visible in your physical reality.  

The process for growing your ideas into reality is no different than the process of growing a Rose from a seed. 


What most people do with the 'intentions' (seeds) they plant is they fret and worry about them rather than nurture them.

They even dig them up and plant a new intention (seed) in its place. (If you want to delay turning your thoughts into reality keep changing your mind.) And if they are not digging up one intention (seed) and replacing it with another intention (seed), they are spreading toxic chemicals on it in the form of their fears, doubts and worries.

God, through nature, has shown us how to turn our thoughts (seeds) into reality. All we have to do is follow what nature does and we will be able turn our thoughts (seeds) into reality with no effort at all. 


When you feel good about the intention (seed) you planted, you are spreading emotional fertilizer on it so it grows quickly into your physical reality. When you feel bad about the intention (seed) you planted (or you doubt the ability of your intention (seed) to grow into physical reality), you are spreading toxic poison over your intention and if you keep doing that, your seed (intention) will die.

Keep this in mind, just as a rose can go without water and sunshine for a few days without harming it growth, feeling bad about your intention (seed) from time to time won't damage it.  However, if you don't have faith in your intention (seed) to grow into reality and find yourself worrying about it more than you should, plant an intention (seed) in its place that you do have FAITH in...

Moe had plenty of faith, only his faith was misplaced.  Moe had faith in less rather than more.  As a result, life always rewarded people who had faith in more with more while rewarding Moe's faith in less, with less. As you sow, so shall you reap, no truer words have ever been written.

Tell me how you 'REALLY' Feel. (Short Article)

.

Often times people find themselves in situations where they are not telling people the way they really think and the way they really feel

There excuse is, 'I can't tell that person 'this or that,' I'll hurt their feelings.'  That's a LIE because you cannot hurt another person's feelings, only your own.
 


When you say you are afraid of hurting another person's feelings what you're really saying is this: 

'if I tell that person what I really think and feel, they will tell 
me what they really think and feel and my feelings will get hurt.' 

Don't use your fear of your feelings getting hurt stop you from telling your truth to others. Your truth is important because your truth is the only thing that will set you free from whatever is troubling you or pissing you off in a relationship, nothing else will set you free, only your truth.

A CAUTION ABOUT TRUTH TELLING

When you start telling your truth, you have an obligation to the other person to continue to tell your truth until the issue is resolved or the problem is solved. There is always a kind and gentle way to tell your truth to another person no matter how ugly and brutal your truth may be... The truth is not always pretty, sometimes it can be down right ugly but the fact is telling your truth to others always works....

It take courage to tell your truth, however, if you don't, you will become imprisoned by your own thoughts and feelings. And once you become imprisoned by your own thoughts and feelings, you will be forced to medicate and sedate your feelings and go for counseling just so you can survive. 

The alternative to pills and therapy is telling your truth courageously.  I did and  because I did, I got my life back and reclaimed all of my personal power that other people took away from me during my growing up years.  To read my story, click here

I'm lazy...so I let the Universe Do it For me...

In the spirit of play, even a Bad Mood can be FUN.

.  
There is nothing like it, having a dog poop all over your new carpet while you sleep. And there is nothing like waking up to the smell of dog poop in the room....And there is nothing like getting out of bed,  half awake, and  stepping into fresh doggy doo doo. WOO HOO!

Now that's funny to you but it put me into a bad mood which then put me into a bad mood about being in a bad mood which then inspired me to write about bad moods. I find inspiration everywhere that's why I am never in a bad mood for very long....

A bad mood is what it is, a mood that we label or judge as bad. Sometimes we wake up in a bad mood, other times a bad mood comes across us, out of the blue,  for no reason we can explain. Sometimes something happens that instantly, outside our control, puts us in to a bad mood....

A bad mood indicates our displeasure in the moment with or about something.  Now whether or not we are in a bad mood in the next moment is up to us.

A bad mood NEVER changes what put us into a bad mood.

A bad mood is a good mood pushed out of the way..

A bad mood covers up the truth that we cannot change what happened.

A bad mood is energy going inwards rather than outwards.

A bad mood is you screwing yourself into the ground.

A bad mood, ultimately,  is you being mad at yourself about something.

A bad mood can't last long if you hold a mirror to your face when you are in a bad mood. Next time you are in a bad mood, have fun with it, look in the mirror and make the baddest, meanest look you can make and see how long you can stay in a bad mood. You will laugh your butt off watching yourself in a bad mood.


'If you don't make a big deal out of your bad mood, it won't make a big deal out of you and put you into a worse mood.  However, if you resist, fight, get upset or argue with yourself over your bad mood, your bad mood will get worse, much worse. Being honest with yourself about your bad mood, when you're in one, immediately begins to take the steam out of it....

Bad moods are like dark clouds in the sky, no matter how positive you are, they will come into your life from time to time.  The worst thing you can do when you experience a bad mood is making yourself wrong for experiencing it. The best thing you can do is to 'feel what you feel' and allow  the bad mood to pass out of your body the way a baby passes gas.....

Eleven Insights Over Morning Coffee



 
The first thing I do every morning is sit down and drink my coffee. As I am drinking my coffee, I open myself up to receive whatever thoughts are waiting outside the doorway of mind that want to make themselves known to me. The following thoughts showed up this morning and I felt inspired to share them with you. 

Where the thoughts come from, I am not sure. Some people say from God, I say from the organizing intelligence of the universe. Regardless of where they come from, they are filled with insights and wisdom that not only make my day, they make my life...

ELEVEN INSIGHTS OUT OF THE BLUE

1. You lose some of your power every time you allow an 'expert' outside yourself to 'label you' as strange or different in some way.

2. When you believe the negative things people say about you, they then have power over you.



3. Always be vigilant of people who make money off of your problems.

4. If you don't take care of yourself other people will in ways that you won't like.

5. "You will find your greatest joy in life being what you want to be and not what other people want you to be." For myself, my greatest joy is being crazy like a fox. :) 


6. The greatest sin in the world is doubting yourself.

7. People will deliberately get you upset to gain control over you. Walk away from them.

8. Before 'reacting' to a situation, PAUSE....and then 'respond' to the situation, that puts you in control

9. Chances are if you are feeling anxious or depressed that means you are believing things about yourself that are simply not true.

10. When you are 'different,' parents label you, teachers label you, friends label you, doctors label you, preachers label you. Watch out for the labels.


11. The disease of the mind is fear and if left unchecked, it makes the body sick too.

I am a writer and I sit for as much as 12 hours a day with very small breaks. I have no side effects from all of the sitting I do. I am as nimble and flexible as I when I was 20.  Before I tell you my secret, I will tell you something most people don't know about me.  Most people think I am in my 50's... I turned 70 last month.  

The reason I don't look or feel as old as I am is not because of diet or exercise, it is because of the on-going conversations I have with my body...  Here is my secret:

When I stand up after sitting for a long time, I spend 60 seconds talking to my body (sometimes longer), lavishing love upon it.  I let it know how much I appreciate it staying
healthy while I am sitting and writing all day long, day in and day out.... After thanking it and lavishing love upon the cells of my body, I ask the cells of my body to forgive me for not exercising more. I then PAUSE and LISTEN to my body. 

I listen not by thinking but OBSERVING the sensations coming off my body..... By OBSERVING my bodily sensation they automatically
translates themselves into words I can understand.  Sometimes my body will tell me to take a short five minute walk, sometimes it will tell me to drink more water. sometimes it will tell me to research something about talking to my body more effectively, sometimes, it will intuitively lead me to find healthy herbs or Vitamins that will support me sitting for hours on end. That's my secret. By the way, your body will never talk to you with a critical voice nor will it ever judge you in any way.

Open Discussion: Beliefs DRIVE you, right or wrong, they drive you....

.
OPEN DISCUSSION

Beliefs DRIVE you, right or wrong, they drive you....

Beliefs that drive you, do not live in your conscious mind. They are thoughts anchored in your subconscious mind that operate on automatic pilot outside conscious control.

A belief anchored in your subconscious is alway more powerful than what you believe consciously. For example, if you consciously believe you can easily attract what you want using the law of attraction but that belief is contradictory to a belief anchored in your subconscious mind, that you must work hard to get what you want, then the belief in your subconscious mind will win every single time.

The conflict people always face in life is between what they consciously want and what their subconscious mind wants for them.

Your ANGER, God's Greatest Gift To You.

. 
Anger is a fire, a passion in your belly unexpressed.

There is nothing wrong with anger when expressed and released in healthy ways.  Anger, pure and simple, is an energy. And when you are expressing it in healthy ways, you will feel your passion for life coursing through your veins making you feel great to be ALIVE

Anger felt and expressed in writing or in your words to yourself can burn up the disappointment, hurt, hatred and bitterness hiding out in your heart. Anger is a function of the soul, it is a cleansing fire given to you by God to clean out your mind and body of thoughts and feelings that are weighing you down or holding you back.  Anger expressed in healthy ways will make you feel brand new again. 

Anger unexpressed is like water in a steam kettle with no safety valve, it will eventually blow and hurt you and others in the process. However, Anger expressed in healthy ways changes the world. We don't think of Mother Teresa and Gandhi as angry people but they were. They were very angry people and with their anger they changed the world by expressing their anger as passion and love for others.

ANGER keeps you honest. When you are pretending or in denial, anger will
show up in your life to set the record straight. - Frederick Zappone

Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free

.
I just bought a great book (the Kindle Version) and wanted to share it with you.




"Idiot America" is great, informative book about concepts we see everyday. The following comments aren't meant to be particularly negative towards the United States and the concepts in this book aren't exclusive to the USA. The concepts in "idiot America" exist all over the entire world. "Idiot America" is a superbly covered account of something that's very prevalent in the USA

Charles Pierce provides the history of "cranks" (con artists and showmen) from the founding of the nation to current examples today in contemporary America. I focused on TV and Radio because of it's widespread impact on the populace today (even in the age of the growing Internet, which is becoming dominant). Much of TV and Talk Radio promote misinformation based on emotion, histrionics, shock, being loud, and over-the-top attempts to get ratings.

The author notes "The 3 Great Premises: and applies them to many instances in this book:

1. Any theory is valid if it moves units (rating, and making money).
2. Anything can be true if it is said loudly enough.
3. Fact is what enough people believe (the Truth is what you believe).

There are many examples in this book. Here are just a few:

The NAFTA Superhighway, that never was:

Even in the year 2003, a completely false rumor can end up being debated by Congressman, and end up on Lou Dobb's TV show. In 2003, the Texas legislature approved the the Trans Texas Corridor (TTC) to improve road and rail lines to facilitate the movement of good within the state of Texas. Due to modern day mass communication (mostly the Internet) the TTC very quickly turned into a fictitious NAFTA Superhighway. The Superhighway was to be 400 yards wide and stretch from El Paso, TX to Saskatoon, Canada. North to South, East to West. The NAFTA superhighway would be the trade corridor for the newly united states of Canada, US, and Mexico. Congressman were asked their position on the highway by reporters in DC, and many cited their opposition to it and the erosion of America's Sovereignty. Lou Dobbs ran the story on his show on a major American news network. Viewers were "outraged." Silly as this may seem, it reinforces the point that we cannot automatically trust nor believe the mainstream media.

Intelligent Design:

Religion and politics have merged, and both use the characteristic tactics of brand marketing in the modern marketplace. Church consultant George Barna in 1988 stated that the church has failed "to embrace a marketing orientation in what has become a market-driven environment" (page 131).

After failing to sneak religion into classrooms to get Creationism taught in biology classes, in addition to nation-wide prayer in schools, a new brand was carefully and methodically invented: intelligent design. ID was funded among many, including the owner of Domino's Pizza through a right-wing legal foundation.

A school board tried to sneak ID into the Dover, Delaware school system not by Constitutionality but by marketing. The Intelligent Designers tried to remove a science textbook and replace it with one advocating Intelligent Design. The scientific basis for the ID movement was by the term "irreducible complexity." Under this, if you cannot remove one element with demolishing the system, it proves creationism works. The ID legal strategy in court under 'irreducible complexity' was, bacterial Flagellum. But the micro bacterial flagellum fell apart in court, and a judge ruled that ID was not sufficiently proven to be taught in public science classes in Delaware. Later this judge, who was given the case, was called a "fascist" by Tim O'Reilly on TV, with Pat Robertson calling him "absurd."

POLITICAL TALK RADIO:

One set of rules noted by a professor studying radio discourse:

*Never Be Dull
*Embrace willfully ignorant simplicity
*The American public is stupid; treat them that way
*Always ignore the fact and the public record when it's convenient

TELEVISION: "Television is an emotional medium. It's entertainment, not analysis or reasoned discourse."

In spite of the massive growth of those getting their information from the Internet in recent years (which I think is good if people check the source appropriately) many folks still get their information from TV.

I think TV has devolved so much and become so bad, that instead of becoming more informed on issues, people are actually becoming less informed. When I visit the US, instantly notice how bad television news is, not only on reporting the issues to the public but by its inclusion of tabloid stories. .

How many people do you know, that simply regurgitate the ideas, positions and arguments they see on radio & television? I know and witness this plenty, and yes I sometimes do it myself.

"Idiot America: How Stupidity Became Virtue in the Land of the Free," by Charles Pierce, is an excellent book.  


Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free



Review By K. Johnson

You are a person of POWER, a difference maker, here is why:

.


You have been brainwashed into believing that you make no real difference in life, that you are nothing more than a powerless speck of dust in the cosmos. That is simply not true. You are more powerful than the stars in the sky and your power runs deeper than the deepest ocean. You were made in the 'image and likeness' of your creator and what powers your creator has, you also have but you don't believe that for a moment because you have been brainwashed to believe otherwise.  




Well friends, today is the day you get in touch with just how powerful you truly are and then begin to share your power and light with others. The power of the world belong to all the citizens of the world, not just a privileged few.  To exercise your power you must speak up,  speak out, and speak your truth consistently to everyone in your life. In other words, to be a powerful person in this world, you must fully express yourself rather than allow other people to depress and discourage you from fully expressing yourself. 


Most people have no idea of the difference they make in life. They have no idea that a quick smile and caring word quickly spoken to a stranger on the street, during the rush hour, can pick a person's spirit up when he is feeling down. An unexpected smile and a kind word, often times, is the only thing that stops someone from committing suicide or going postal and killing others.  It is the little things we do that make the biggest difference in life... And the more  'little things' we do that feel good to us, the more the universe reveal to us our powerful side to make big things happen too....  Continue reading.

The Path To Authentic' Power (My Story)

Living in the Moment...

Be Here NOW.....

.

At the end of your ROPE? Without hope? This is for you!

.
I wanted to give up time after time. In fact, there were times I wanted to give up every single day of my life for three straight years after my daughter died, unexpectedly, due to medical negligence. She died leaving four little girls behind ages eight to 18 months old.  I hurt so bad that that I wanted to give up living but I didn't because of a driving force inside of me called LOVE.

The love I had for my daughter and the love my daughter had for me...  My daughter made me a believer in love, she made me understand there was nothing more powerful than love but you couldn't just speak the words, you had to turn love into action and that's what I do every single day of my life..... 

I share my love with others, up on this blog, through my words. I make life easier for others to compensate for how tough life was for me.  No one should have to suffer like I suffered. And because I suffered so much, I committed myself, through my writings, to lessen the suffering of others.  

I share this with you not to have you feel sorry for me but to let you know that no matter how tough life is for you, you can turn your pain into power. If I can do it, you can too.

Who wants to do an 'Online Fundraiser' for me?

.
I don't get what I want out of life by being dramatic and spreading my misery so others will feel sorry for me and help me out because they feel bad. Don't misunderstand me, I am not making light of people who do get their needs met by being dramatic and making you feel bad.  That's just not my thing. My thing is telling 'my truth' and loving people to death. That's what I do, love people and tell 'my truth.'

I am a lover of people, all people regardless of their beliefs. I spend forty to sixty hours a week writing articles to post up on this blog that will inspire people and make life easier for them tomorrow and than it is for them today.  It takes a considerable amount time and energy to do what I do....and I do it for free because sharing my love with others through my words is the most important thing in the world to me. 

If you feel moved or inspired to start a fundraiser, on my behalf, so I can continue to inspire people world-wide, free of charge, I would be grateful.  As a matter of information, my life is an open book for all to see. If you have questions to ask me, before starting a fundraiser, send them my way by clicking here

If you don't feel inspired to conduct an online fundraiser on my behalf but want to support the work I do by leaving a donation of a dollar or two, click on the donate button below:

Stop the Spreading of HATE: What you can do!

.
Sharing our thoughts with others is one of the ways we LOVE or HATE others. Let me explain. When we share our best  thoughts, (thoughts that feel good to us) with others, we are loving them. When we share our worst thoughts (thoughts that feel bad to us) with others, we are hating them. 

If you loved someone, why would you ever share thoughts with them that makes them feel bad too.  Isn't that just you sharing your misery with others? And aren't miserable thoughts, thoughts laced with self-hate? They certainly aren't thoughts filled with self-love. 

I know most people never think that what they say to another is an expression of love or hate but all you have to do is look at the world around you to see this is true. 

To prove to yourself what I just shared with you is true, notice when someone expresses their anger to others. Notice that their expression of anger makes other people angry too.  Notice when someone expresses their hatred to others, that expression of their hatred causes other people to feel hatred too.  

Notice when someone shares violent thoughts with others, it makes other people feel violent too. Notice when someone shares their fear thoughts with others, it makes other people feel fear too. 

Sharing our thoughts is one of the way we LOVE or HATE others and since I now know that, I choose only to share thoughts that make others feel loved.   In the process of sharing thoughts with others that makes them feel loved, I feel loved too.

AUTHOR NOTE: It is not the words we share with others that spreads the love or hate, it is what we are feeling on the inside when we are sharing our words with others that does the trick.

Getting what You want, the EASY way...

.
What you think is important in regards to getting what you want is not important to the 'organizing intelligence of the universe' at all. In fact, the very things you think are important in order to get what you want, at best, actually slow you down,  At the worst, it stops you, altogether, from getting what you want.  Trust the universe and only act on 'inspired thoughts' and leave your fear and doubt thoughts alone. That's the easy way to get what you want.

I am getting quite good at taking action only when 'inspired' to do so.. and not taking action coming from fear, doubt, worry, duty, burden, guilt or obligation. Doing anything coming from those kinds of thoughts and feelings never leads me to anything good, never!

LETTER IN THE WALLET - AN AMAZING LOVE STORY

A Man' search for the writer of a 60 year old message leads him on an extraordinary journey

As I walked home one freezing day, I stumbled on a wallet someone had lost in the street. I picked it up and looked inside to find some identification so I could call the owner. But the wallet contained only three dollars and a crumpled letter that looked as if it had been in there for years. The envelope was worn and the only thing that was legible on it was the return address. I started to open the letter, hoping to find some clue. Then I saw the dateline — 1924. The letter had been written almost sixty years ago.

It was written in a beautiful feminine handwriting on powder blue stationery with a little flower in the left-hand corner. It was a "Dear John" letter that told the recipient, whose name appeared to be Michael, that the writer could not see him any more because her mother forbade it. Even so, she wrote that she would always love him. It was signed, Hannah.

It was a beautiful letter, but there was no way except for the name Michael, that the owner could be identified. Maybe if I called information, the operator could find a phone listing for the address on the envelope. "Operator," I began, "this is an unusual request. I'm trying to find the owner of a wallet that I found. Is there anyway you can tell me if there is a phone number for an address that was on an envelope in the wallet?" She suggested I speak with her supervisor, who hesitated for a moment then said, "Well, there is a phone listing at that address, but I can't give you the number." She said, as a courtesy, she would call that number, explain my story and would ask them if they wanted her to connect me. I waited a few minutes and then she was back on the line. "I have a party who will speak with you." I asked the woman on the other end of the line if she knew anyone by the name of Hannah. She gasped, "Oh! We bought this house from a family who had a daughter named Hannah. But that was 30 years ago!"

"Would you know where that family could be located now?" I asked. "I remember that Hannah had to place her mother in a nursing home some years ago," the woman said. "Maybe if you got in touch with them they might be able to track down the daughter." She gave me the name of the nursing home and I called the number. They told me the old lady had passed away some years ago but they did have a phone number for where they thought the daughter might be living. I thanked them and phoned. The woman who answered explained that Hannah herself was now living in a nursing home.

This whole thing was stupid, I thought to myself. Why was I making such a big deal over finding the owner of a wallet that had only three dollars and a letter that was almost 60 years old? Nevertheless, I called the nursing home in which Hannah was supposed to be living and the man who answered the phone told me, "Yes, Hannah is staying with us." Even though it was already 10 p.m., I asked if I could come by to see her. "Well," he said hesitatingly, "if you want to take a chance, she might be in the day room watching television." I thanked him and drove over to the nursing home. The night nurse and a guard greeted me at the door. We went up to the third floor of the large building. In the day room, the nurse introduced me to Hannah.

She was a sweet, silver-haired old timer with a warm smile and a twinkle in her eye. I told her about finding the wallet and showed her the letter. The second she saw the powder blue envelope with that little flower on the left, she took a deep breath and said, "Young man, this letter was the last contact I ever had with Michael." She looked away for a moment deep in thought and then said Softly, "I loved him very much. But I was only 16 at the time and my mother felt I was too young. Oh, he was so handsome. He looked like Sean Connery, the actor. Yes," she continued. "Michael Goldstein was a wonderful person. If you should find him, tell him I think of him often. And," she hesitated for a moment, almost biting her lip, "tell him I still love him. You know," she said smiling as tears began to well up in her eyes, "I never did marry. I guess no one ever matched up to Michael..."

I thanked Hannah and said good-bye. I took the elevator to the first floor and as I stood by the door, the guard there asked, "Was the old lady able to help you?" I told him she had given me a lead. "At least I have a last name. But I think I'll let it go for a while. I spent almost the whole day trying to find the owner of this wallet." I had taken out the wallet, which was a simple brown leather case with red lacing on the side. When the guard saw it, he said, "Hey, wait a minute! That's Mr. Goldstein's wallet. I'd know it anywhere with that bright red lacing. He's always losing that wallet. I must have found it in the halls at least three times." "Who's Mr. Goldstein?" I asked as my hand began to shake. "He's one of the old timers on the 8th floor. That's Mike Goldstein's wallet for sure. He must have lost it on one of his walks."

I thanked the guard and quickly ran back to the nurse's office. I told her what the guard had said. We went back to the elevator and got on. I prayed that Mr. Goldstein would be up. On the eighth floor, the floor nurse said, "I think he's still in the day room. He likes to read at night. He's a darling old man." We went to the only room that had any lights on and there was a man reading a book. The nurse went over to him and asked if he had lost his wallet, "This kind gentleman found a wallet and we wondered if it could be yours?" Mr. Goldstein looked up with surprise, put his hand in his back pocket and said, "Oh, it is missing!" I handed Mr. Goldstein the wallet and the second he saw it, he smiled with relief and said, "Yes, that's it! It must have dropped out of my pocket this afternoon. I want to give you a reward." "No, thank you," I said. "But I have to tell you something. I read the letter in the hope of finding out who owned the wallet." The smile on his face suddenly disappeared. "You read that letter?"

"Not only did I read it, I think I know where Hannah is." He suddenly grew pale. "Hannah? You know where she is? How is she? Is she still as pretty as she was? Please, please tell me," he begged. "She's fine...just as pretty as when you knew her." I said softly. The old man smiled with anticipation and asked, "Could you tell me where she is? I want to call her tomorrow." He grabbed my hand and said, "You know something, mister, I was so in love with that girl that when that letter came, my life literally ended. I never married. I guess I've always loved her. "

"Mr. Goldstein," I said, "come with me." We took the elevator down to the third floor. The hallways were darkened and only one or two little night-lights lit our way to the day room where Hannah was sitting alone watching the television. The nurse walked over to her. "Hannah," she said softly, pointing to Michael, who was waiting with me in the doorway. "Do you know this man?" She adjusted her glasses, looked for a moment, but didn't say a word. Michael said softly, almost in a whisper, "Hannah, it's Michael. Do you remember me?" She gasped, "Michael! I don't believe it! Michael! It's you! My Michael!" He walked slowly towards her and they embraced. The nurse and I left with tears streaming down our faces.

About three weeks later I got a call at my office from the nursing home. "Can you break away on Sunday to attend a wedding? Michael and Hannah are going to tie the knot!" It was a beautiful wedding with all the people at the nursing home dressed up to join in the celebration. Hannah wore a light beige dress and looked beautiful. Michael wore a dark blue suit and stood tall. They made me their best man. The hospital gave them their own room and if you ever wanted to see a 76-year-old bride and a 79-year-old groom acting like two teenagers, you had to see this couple. A perfect ending for a love affair that had lasted nearly 60 years.

From 1954. Greatest Love Song of All Time.

.
I have shared this song with four of my women friends and everyone of them listened to this song repeatedly and they all, at some point, cried listening to the words of this song.  I cried too and I don't cry easily.  There is something in this song that touches a very deep and primitive part of us. - Frederick

Following the Beat Of Your Own Drummer

.
"If a man loses pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured, or far away. " - Henry David Thoreau

When you follow the beat of your own drummer, when you are fully being yourself, doors will open for you where there were formerly walls.  It takes no effort to be successful when you are being yourself.  On the other hand, if you are not being yourself, your life will consist of unnecessary stress and strife along with an unbelievable amount of physical and emotional discomfort.

When you are 'being yourself' you trust your good feelings more than your bad.  When you are 'being yourself' you do everything coming from inspiration and love rather than fear and doubt. When you are being yourself life is an absolute joy. You see, being yourself requires no effort or struggle at all. On the other hand, if you are not being yourself the effort and struggle you experience in your life will discourage and depress you and put you into a state of chronic despair.

Being yourself is about being the natural you, not the counterfeit version society molded you into becoming.  You were an original when you were born and by being willing to trust thoughts that feel good to you and only take actions that feel right for you, you will return to fully being yourself.

Effort and struggle is always an ALERT SIGNAL that you are not being yourself, That alert signal is letting you know that you are either trying to be something or someone you are not.  Or you are forcing yourself to do things that you truly do not want to do but are doing them because what other people think of you is more important to you than what you think of yourself. 

Anything you do, anything you do (repeated for emphasis) that makes you feel uncomfortable is an indicator that you are not being yourself. The real culprit that stops people from being themselves are beliefs they believe in that do not represent who they truly are. Any belief you follow that causes you pain indicates you are believing in and acting on a belief that is not the right belief for you... 

BE YOURSELF.... You are all you got...

Living in the Moment...

.
The universe conspires to use the circumstances, of our lives, to make us live in the MOMENT. The universe knows the only place we can access our authentic power is NOW. And it does whatever it takes including creating unpleasant circumstances for us, if that's what it takes to get us to live in the 'here and now'

The very best things happen to me when I live in the NOW.  Unexpected money, love and spontaneous healings, both physical and emotional, have happened to me when living in the NOW.

Notice, Observe and witness the NOW. It removes the drama if you are an observer and not a participant.

Noticing, observing, witnessing and watching my life is the most enjoyable part of my life. Notice what? Everything; my thoughts, feelings, other people words, behavior, just noticing, watching everything like a good movie. And in noticing, without taking action, I notice my life is sometimes dramatic, sometimes romantic, most times passionate, and never boring.. :)


OBSERVATION EXERCISE
Notice how viewing this picture makes you feel, notice your thoughts and feelings and then you will have the experience of observing something rather than participating in something.

Be Here NOW.....

.
The very best things happen to me when I live in the NOW.  Unexpected money, love and spontaneous healings, both physical and emotional, have happened to me when living in the NOW.

I used to have a 'particular' way I wanted my life to go but it took too much effort and struggle to live that way. In addition, the stress and worry of trying to make life go the way I wanted it to go just wasn't worth it..   I finally realized the way I wanted my life to go was not the way to get to where I wanted to go....

I discovered the way for me to get to where I wanted to go was to let the
'flow of life' carry me there.  These days I go with the flow, wherever the flow chooses to take me. 

I do not not judge the places the 'flow' is taking me nor do I judge anything I see along the way.  As I walk the path  which the flow makes known to me, one moment at a time, I oppose no one or nothing.  I do, however, keep my eyes open for those 'natural connections' with people that feel good to me.  

When I am going with the flow, life is easy for me and when I am not going with the flow or go against the flow, life becomes very hard for me and all kinds of unpleasant things happen to me,

While there are many things I want, I don't focus my attention on what I want. I focused my attention on the 'here and now'. And I do everything in my power to make my 'present moments of living' the happiest, most enjoyable, most powerful moments possible not only for myself but for the people around me.


To experience, first hand, your magnificence, power and light, walking the path of  NOW is the place to be.  It is the only place you can experience your authentic power. The NOW is the only place you can feel passionate and inspired to do things that make you feel good. In each and every moment of now, all possibilities are equal which means regardless of your past history, miracles, magic, and your dreams coming true can happen to you in an instant.


When I travel the path of now, I have no past that burdens me or holds me back. When I travel the path of the now, I only look into the future long enough to see if there is anything I can do NOW to make sure my future turns out the way I want it to. And once I determine what I need to do NOW, if anything, I return to my present moments of living and allow the flow to gently carry me to the place I want to go, the place were all of my dreams come true..


Using the FLOW to Overcome Obstacles and Roadblocks


When you encounter obstacles or roadblocks that are between you and what you want out of life choose to be like the "wind and water" and go with the flow and "flow" up, over, around or under them rather than fighting them and giving them power over you. 


The only real time you will ever have is NOW.  There is no past time, it has passed.  There is no future time because when you reach the future, presently living in your imagination, the time will be NOW..

If you ask your body questions about what you can do to support it in achieving fully restored healthy, it will answer you. After asking your body a question  **PAUSE** and  write down what the body tells you. If you don't hear the body's answer, ask it another question and write that answer down...

Talk to your body as if you were talking to someone in person.  Your body is like a country. The cells in your body are like the citizens of the country. Your body has a central government like your country does. The central government of the body is called the brain.

I do not choose to make ENEMIES in my world.

.
I do not make enemies out of individuals or countries.  

I see all of us as human beings made by the same creator regardless of what name we call the creator.   If people want to create enemies in their mind (their inner world) and then make them their enemies in the physical world,  that is their choice, not mine.   

Everything in life is created twice, first mentally, then physically. To have an enemy in your physical world you have to make him an enemy in your thoughts. I do not do choose to do that. 

In addition, I did not allow myself to inherit the enemies of my ancestors for their enemies are not my enemies.  The reason I chose not to inherit my ancestor's enemies is because I have no desire to carry on a tradition that results in bloodshed and violence. 

I do not choose to carry on any tradition of my ancestors that wounds or harms another human being in any way. My tradition is a tradition of peace.

Go Within or Go Without.

.
All the answers you seek live within you. The more you care about yourself, the more good things the universe will give you. The care I am talking about is not what you see on the outside.  it is your feelings and emotions on the inside. Take care of those things and all good things will be added to you.

Gratitude produces MIRACLES but not for everyone. WHY?

.
We hear lots of talk about how important it is to be grateful.  We hear people proclaim the 'miracles' that have taken place, in their lives, because they developed the attitude of gratitude... And yet there are some people gratitude doesn't work for....  And they don't know why.....

Why gratitude doesn't work for some folks is simple. Expressing words of gratitude doesn't makes gratitude work, it is about FEELING the gratitude that makes it work. 


Feeling grateful is like feeling love, if you don't feel it, it is not real to you. You see when we feel gratitude, those feelings acting like cosmic magnets reach out to furthest corners of the universe and bring back into our lives more good things to be grateful for.... How gratitude does this is beyond my ability to explain it to you, I just know Gratitude works when you genuinely feel it.   

Don't take my word for it.  List one thing in the comment section of this post that you are genuinely grateful for today. List the one thing today where you can honestly FEEL the gratitude... After that, privately,  do it once a day for five days and on then on the sixth day come back to this blog and  report the good things gratitude brought into your life.

 
 Expressing sincere gratitude (feeling it) for what we have guarantees we will attract more good things into our lives to be grateful for..

I Gave Up All Of My EXPECTATIONS: Here's why


Expectations Have ZERO value except to cause upset.  

I have given up all expectations because when I am expecting something, I am not living in the moment. And when I am not living in the moment, I cannot access my authentic power. And when I cannot access my authentic power, I am unhappy.  And I am unhappy because I feel powerless and ineffective. And I feel powerless and ineffective because I am trying to control something that is not in my life yet, the future. However, when I live in the moment, the thoughts and actions I take in the 'here and now' create my future for me. That's why I live without expectations.

Experiencing God without faith, dogma or doctrine (My Experience)

.
God is not a concept, dogma or belief that lives between our ears any more than the 'love' we feel from those who love us lives between our ears.  God is real. God is something we experience directly, not in physical form like we experience our girlfriend or boyfriend, but as a feeling, a presence.

You know you are connected to God when you feel one with yourself and everyone around you. You know you are connected to God when despite less than ideal circumstances you feel peace surround you.

You know you are connected with God when all feels right with the world even though all the evidence says nothing is right with the world.

God is heartfelt.  When the sunset moves you to tears, you are feeling the presence of God.  God is not a mystery but a living breathing experience. When we notice our heart is beating and that we breath in and out with no effort at all, we are feeling the presence of  God.

The experience of God is a delicious feeling, it is one free from stress, doubt and worry.  

God feels like cool ocean waves washing over us on a hot summer's day.  We feel God's presence when we smile back at the little baby smiling back at us.  

We feel God when we stand in in awe of the softness and beauty of the cloud overheads.

And when God works with nature,  the feeling of God's presence can overwhelm the senses.

Angela Predicts the FUTURE....

.
In the weeks and month to come, the 'reported' news is going to become worse and worse. 


They will be reporting more murders, more killings, more thefts, more violence, more tragedies BUT....and this in important... it will only be 'reported news' you see on television, hear on the radio or read in newspapers or magazines, it WILL NOT be your news. This will be other people's realities being reported in the news, not yours  

YOUR REALITY will be one of you having the best time of your life, of you being healthier than you have ever been, and of you being happier and more prosperous than you ever thought possible. All of this 'good news' for people like yourself and others will, largely, go unreported. 

The increase in bad news that is being reported is just the 'collective fear-based mind' holding on for dear life because fear based living is being loved out of existence by people like yourself. 

Not to worry dears one, nothing fear-based can continue to exist in the collective LIGHT of your love for yourselves and each other.

Love,

Angela

I am a High Class, Middle Aged, White Trash Guy, that's who I am.

.
The hardest thing in the world is trying to be something you are not.  I've tried to be rich and famous but I'm not. I tried being handsome and sexy, but I failed at that too.. I tried being ambitious and goal directed but it was too much work and it didn't feel good when I tried to do what other people told me I should do.

Who I am is a simple man with simple talents. I can take complex ways of thinking about life and boil them down into a sentence or two that anyone can understand.  My blog is filled with over 3600 messages all pointing to how easy life is once you start being yourself and stop trying to be something you are not.  

Once I got tired of trying to be something I was not, I got comfortable being who I am.  And who I am is a high class, middle age, white trash guy (the laziest man you will ever meet) who enjoys the simple things in life like good food, a good woman and traveling when and where I please.
