Transform Your Life with One Simple Thought

May 05, 2019
 

 

You have a physical essence (body and mind) and a spiritual essence (soul). In the physical world, we are multitudes. We have many hundreds of roles we play throughout our lives. Some roles are brief. Some last a lifetime. They are vast.

Yet, spiritually we are One. One consciousness, one awareness.

We must shift from living from the ego to living from the soul.

When this shift occurs, when you infuse your physical essence with your spiritual essence, your life becomes sacred.

If you can live your life from the perspective that you have the light and love of God coursing through your veins, inhabiting every cell of your body, guiding you in your thoughts and actions, it will change how you perceive the world and your conscious role in it. It will transform your life in ways you never thought possible.

The easiest way to tap into your spiritual essence is through being present. However, if you find that to be difficult, try the following. Tell yourself,

The light and...

Can You Find Joy in Suffering?

Feb 17, 2019
 

Can you find joy in suffering?

Without suffering, we would not know joy and compassion.

Occasionally we experience real suffering, such as the passing of a loved one.

Yet, in the midst of our suffering, we can find joy, and we can still connect with our loved ones for the truest part of them, their soul, never dies.

I hope you find my video helpful in your desire to live with presence, intention, peacefulness, and joy.

Please leave me a comment or question, and please free to share this with others.

Namaste,

Embrace Life's Miracles

Jul 09, 2018

“You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.”

– Paulo Coelho

Not only is each day a miracle, but even more so, each moment is a miracle.  

I have often said that if you slow down just enough to pay attention to what is happening in the moment, no matter where you are and no matter what you are doing, you will see that miracles are happening all around you.

The routines and behavioral habits that we develop are key to preventing us from observing the tiny miracles around us.  These patterns become rote and take us out of the present such that we often passively experience life, as though on auto-pilot. As such, it becomes easy to take many things (miracles) in our lives for granted.

It’s important that we try to break up some of our daily routines and be more present to our lives. It’s not hard to do,...

You Can Experience Nirvana

Jun 11, 2018
 
“We do not see that our life right here, right now, is nirvana. Maybe we think that nirvana is a place where there are no problems, no more delusions. Maybe we think nirvana is something very beautiful, something unattainable. We always think nirvana is something very different from our own life.”

– Taizan Maezumi

 

In Buddhism, nirvana is freedom from suffering and desire. It is transcending the ego and experiencing the true nature of reality. 

When suffering and fear fall away, we experience pure joy and bliss. We lose our sense of an individual self, we understand our connectedness to everything and experience the enlightened state of nirvana.

Although some believe you need to join a monastery and study for years to experience it, nirvana is attainable to anyone. It is attainable to you, right now.

Take a mindful breath and be present to what is occurring in this exact moment in your life. Be present while you read these very words.

Dealing with Negativity from Those You Love

May 12, 2018
 


A subscriber to my blog recently asked me the following, 

“How do I deal with negativity exhibited by people I love?”

This is a great question and one that many of you can probably relate to. Dealing with negativity from others can be extremely difficult, even more so when it involves a family member.

The answer is presence, compassion, and love.

Often, people are negative because they are in psychological and/or emotional pain. Trying to persuade or coax them out of their negative state can sometimes create more negativity.

I recommend the following…


Take a second to become present.

In becoming present, your ego is taken out of the equation. This will make it easier for you to see their negativity objectively. It will also assist you in not being offended or at risk of taking personally what they are saying. If you find your ego wanting to engage, simply focus on your breathing and rejoin the present.

They may not realize you are...
