I oft times wonder why us humans have such a need to label everything we see. And even though one will label a thing as this or that the next one of us redefines the thing itself and adds a new label to it. Is it no wonder we humans cannot learn to live in peace and harmony with everyone else? Life is not that complicated I think, rather I believe we do everything in our power to make it become complicated. One person's definition is another's illusion and on and on it goes. I wish to share with you the following quote from the Tao te Ching translated by Stephen Mitchell. It says this:
When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.
Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.
Therefore the Master acts without doing anything, and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come; things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't possess, acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.
My sincerest wish is that each of you wonderful folks find yourself right now in a state of peace, perfect love, joy, and with a sense of oneness for all of humanity. For no matter how any of us define things I feel we cannot ever change the fact that we are One. One with all life. Now all we need do is learn to treat each other with the love and respect we deserve. I leave you now with my love to each one of you, no matter where you are, or what you may be doing at the moment. I would only ask that you take a moment and do something nice for someone right now and become a part of the solution that will eventually rule all life. Perfect life, perfect love, and perfect peace. I am you, you are me, and together we are life!

Hey folks. Sure hope all of you are doing great and enjoying this moment! This is a brand new day and just like an artists blank page it awaits whatever picture you desire to stamp on it. Our thoughts are able to lead us to where we want to be or they can lead us to a place we would rather not be. I know it's hard to control one's thoughts, especially when they seem to be taking us for a ride we are not really enjoying. It does take an acute awareness for us to control those thoughts but it can be done. I surely hope all your inner most thoughts are ones of much beauty, joy, and peace. Maybe you can take a moment right now to put those thoughts to good use and do something nice not only for yourself but for others as well. I will share with you a quote from Anthony Liccione who has stated: "Thoughts are like an open ocean. They can either move you forward within it's waves, or sink you under deep into its abyss." My sincerest desire is that you are moving along with the flow of life in an easy and satisfying way. Have fun and enjoy this moment!

Hi friends. I sure hope this finds each of you feeling great and enjoying the moment. Be assured that no matter what experience you are living right now has you in the perfect place and at the perfect time. Even if it doesn't seem that way to you. When things are flowing smoothly and we feel great it is very easy to know we are exactly where we are meant to be and that everything is working out as we want it too.. But those times when everything seems to be going wrong can bring us to a state of unrest and even turmoil. It is during those times we must dig deep into our "Center" of understanding and realize that even though things are "tough" right now we are still in our perfect place. Each experience serves as a teacher so that we can continue to grow. Be not dismayed when you feel unsettled and out of sync with life, for it is during these times of trial and tribulation that we learn the most valuable lessons. In closing I wish to share with you a quote from Eckhart Tolle.--"Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this experience is the experienced you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment." My sincerest hope for all of you is that the "lessons" of the moment will be clearly understood and will help you to relax and just enjoy the moment! If you will please take a moment and do something nice for someone just because you can. That way you will be a part of the solution and not a part of the "problem". I wish all the best for you and yours always!
