Plug in. Everyday. And listen.

Plug in. And listen.

Plug in. And listen.

You did not come into this world to be anyone other than yourself. Great dis-content happens when you try to please everyone else. In fact, there is no way to please every one. If you are lucky you will find out what makes you happy and pursue your own, personal happiness. That is a life’s work in, and of, itself.

If someone tells you what to do know that that is what they would do. No one else is you so it is very unlikely that anyone, outside of yourself, will give you as good of advice as you can give yourself.

The hard part is learning to listen within. This takes practice and constant effort. If you can, listen within daily. And act on what information that you get as often as you get information (then you are well on your way to making yourself happy). So plug in everyday. And listen.

Embrace what will come

This time of year reminds many of the imperfections in their relationships and in life. This time of year does bring to the surface the many imperfections in one’s life because life is imperfect. We also tend to see that the grass is always greener on someone else’s lawn. Let me dispell some of these myths.

  • The hardest relationships will be, necessarily, with your birth family. Many of us came into hardship in order to learn. There are always exceptions to this rule. But the notion of an idealic, perfect family without quarrels does not exist.
  • The idea that someone, necessarily, has it easier than you is not a reality. With social media it is easy for one to “paint” this picture. Their is a lot of painting. People post the idealic, Christmas images of their angelic children. They don’t always post the many times that this idealic child has also told them that they hated them. Is is, often times, a very contrived image.

Don’t forget that the hardship is part of what makes this life so great. If you can start to embrace that things are hard here you might to see the infinite blessings that abound.

Happy Holidays to All. It is more than the presents and the great meal. It is about the great gratitude that we feel for life in whatever form it may come in. Just embrace this season for gratitude for what you have not what you don’t have.

The gift

The gift is the challenge

The gift is the challenge

Things are hard, very hard. We came to Earth to be challenged. The challenge is the gift. To think otherwise makes life much harder than it needs to be.

The other gift is the fact that if you plug in, plug in more, all of the tools, resources and ability to get through anything will appear. So plug in more. Don’t fight the gift, the challenge; raise yourself up to the challenge. And then, guess what? Another challenge will appear. It is the nature of the game.
