Ground rules for a great life

Life doesn’t just happen. We interact with life in a very particular way which produces a very particular result. When you change how you relate to life, you change what happens around you.

Follow these ground rules and watch what happens.

1. Be positive
The words you speak and the thoughts you accept determine how you see life. You then act consistent with the way you see life and life responds accordingly. If you want a life that works, don’t speak negatively or accept negative thoughts about yourself, other people or your life. Don’t speak or think negatively unless you want your words and thoughts to come true.

What is enlightenment?

There was a day a while back when I was grumpy and life wasn’t much fun. I was discouraged and negative. Then I went to lunch and saw an old friend. We hugged each other and I experienced a beautiful burst of love. All of a sudden, life was wonderful again. I was happy, alive, and very positive. Life was a joy and opportunity was everywhere.

Nothing changed in the realm of circumstances, but everything changed in me. One moment I was in the darkness and in the next moment, I was in the light.

Steps for healing any relationship

You can heal any relationship

If you have a relationship that isn’t working, there is a cycle of conflict that is creating the problem. Each of you are getting hurt, putting up your walls of protection, and giving it back to the other.

Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to turn your situation around. This is because it takes two people to create a cycle of conflict. It only takes one person to end it. The cycle is like a tennis volley. It’s back and forth, back and forth. As soon as someone refuses to return the serve, the volley is over.

The essence of spirituality

The gateway to joy

There are two domains of life. You can either live in the light or the darkness, the oneness or the separateness. When you are in the light, the circumstances of life have no power. You are happy, alive, and free. You are full of love and life works incredibly. When you are in the darkness, the circumstances of life have total power and life is painful.

In this state of darkness, we are convinced that happiness and upsets come from outside of ourselves. We then go through life trying to force people and life to be a certain way. We fight, resist, hang on, and withdraw. We destroy love and sabotage our lives. This is the realm of fear, upset, and suffering.

Are you living your life purpose?

What is your life purpose?

Everyone is created with a unique set of gifts, talents, and abilities. Life purpose is the full expression of these gifts. When you are living your life purpose you are expressing the very essence of who you are. You are good at what you do and you love doing it. You also feel fulfilled and know that you make a difference. You are empowered by your work and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Until you find your purpose, there will always seem to be something missing.
