Madness Has Descended Upon Us – 1 Way Only – Cut it Out!

Leave a comment

In a previous post i wrote of being M.A.D., Manifesting an Abundant Destiny.

Unfortunately, it did not seem to be understood as there is a wave of madness that seems to be sweeping across the globe.

People are so damn angry for all of the externals that seem to be plaguing them. Yesterday, there was even a Twitter hashtag for what makes people mad in general.

What is happening here?

Has the whole world descended into a cycle of madness? I am of the mindset to believe so.

You see, you cannot Manifest an Abundant Destiny if you are angry at life for all of the mistreatment it is seemingly giving you. My father once said to me that “Life does not owe you a living” but it seems that we are of the mindset that it indeed does.

We have raised a culture that seems to think that they are entitled to everything, whenever they damn well feel they want it. Every one desires instant fixes to this and that and instant riches, as was the recent infatuation with the mega lottery as of late.

Many seem to rail against the rich, but it damn well looks as if many desire to be there among them.

Do you know why that is? it is our Universal nature to be expansive and abundant creatures. While many equate that with money, it really goes to the heart of all abundance. it is a condition of the heart that manifest itself on the outside of our life journey.

There is Only One Way

I typically give 3 ways to look at a situation within that makes you think a different way, but i am inclined to break my pattern here as it really comes down to one way alone.

Way 1: The Only Way – Choose Differently and Cut it Out!

Just stop being so damn mad and angry about everything. Stop being railroaded by the media, by friends, by family, by social media, etc, that takes you into the depths of lower consciousness thinking.

You see, anger and being mad calibrates at such a lower level of existence on the consciousness scale that that it is actually a step back from a societal evolution standpoint.

If we continue to buy into the thinking that we are to always comment and add our opinion  to fuel the anger of those involved, then we are simply buying into the thinking that we have some importance.

It is the case of the ego running amuck in society

There is only one way to change it all. Everyone needs to step back, make a decision that they are to add value to the world and CHOOSE to live differently.

Be the agent of change that speaks not to a situation, but to the hearts of those who are within in it. We are all one and when you treat your brother or sister in the journey with a hatred in any way by choosing anger and being generally mad about everything, you are doing so essentially to yourself.

There is only one way.

Choose to be different. From there, all manifesting can then then occur. make a decision to not be so damn angry and mad about everything for the world can truly change one soul at a time.

Be the one that simply talks with a heart of love.

Live free of the emotions that are sought to steer you in a different direction than is your abundant nature. We are free to choose. Choose an Abundant Life through peace, love and joy. From there, all living truly begins.

What Pulls You Forward? 3 Questions to Ask

Leave a comment

I get a sense that there is an easiness within the souls i have encountered as of late. Maybe it speaks to a larger sense that we are on the edge of something, like a butterfly getting ready to emerge from its cocoon.

I sense this from those i encounter and sense a larger dynamic within the ebb and flow of the world-at-large. I am not saying it is good or bad as i care not to label it, but merely come as an observer of the human condition.

You, too, must be careful to label any uneasiness you may be having within your own life as it may be an indicator of a breakthrough of some kind. Labeling something as good or bad, especially bad, tends to shut off the stream of higher consciousness that seeks to be your destiny.

Most resist, but the more you ask questions about the journey, the more clarification becomes your very existence. It seems to be an oxymoron as we are a society that always wants answers, but the truth is that it is the questions we ask that are the essence of living in beautiful Now Moments.

3 Questions to Ask in Moving Forward

Now when we speak of moving forward, especially in light of living in this Now Moment, there is a danger that we become future-based alone, which is where the ego desires you. But only in the stillness of this Now Moment do your questions become a guide to the connecting Now Moments.

Question 1: What is Your Truth?

At the heart of all moving forward, you must ask if you are being truthful to who you are. Essentially, are you where you want to be within that manifest without in your environment? This may require that you step aside, get out of your own head, and really discover if the core values that you have identified as important to you are truly being lived in a way that makes sense.

Remember that externals do not determine who you are; that your surroundings are only an indicator of you, they are not you. You are not your career, but the essence of your career is who you are.

Make sense?
To begin here with this question, you have to go within and get a sense of your truth.

Question 2: Do You Inspire Others With Whom You Are?

Sometimes the greatest way you can inspire yourself is to be of service to others with whom you are. Do people seek your advice or wisdom? Are you open to be approached?

Sometimes the mere aspect of getting out of your own way and to quit worrying about the future  is to be of service to others. When you are open and allow your spirit to shine in such a way that people can sense that from you, you will be surprised as to how you will begin to see others around you in a more loving light.

Question 3: Are You Able to Define Your Desires and Then Release Them?

Yoda said to a transcendent Obi-Wan in “Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back” about Luke, “”always looking to the future this one is. Never his mind on where he is, what he is doing.”

The point was that the force gave you an insight into the future as an awareness, but it is only when you truly release your constant future-based thinking can you be mindful of living Now Moments alone.

Sometimes to move forward, you have to release the forward nature to become a connected string of beautiful Now Moments. There is a connection to all Now Moments and it is the essence of peace, love and joy that is who you are within.

Once understood and fully lived, life takes on a newness and your truth is ever-present and any uneasiness melts away.

Be a Person of Quality. Direct Your Power.

Until then…

Be Excellent, Expect the Best!

Killing Happiness With The External: 3 Ways to Look Within

2 Comments

I was coaching a client the other day who was telling me the boredom that had beset her and that there was “nothing to do” that brought her joy.

Even a casual follower of this blog knows where i will go with that, but in case you are of the mindset that the external; the vacations, the special occasions, the parties, etc, etc, will bring you some sort of peace within your life, you probably need to re-evaluate your thinking.

As i told my client, there is nothing “out there” that can ever bring you a joyful countenance if you  first are not living in some kind of place where love, joy and peace are at least a small reality.

There can never be an event, an occasion or even another person, that can bring you to a place of joy in your life if you first don’t come to grips with the essence of love within first.

The Goal Line is Constantly Being Moved

Maybe it is the idea that we are always in the pursuit of happiness and that it lies in the obtaining. But isn’t the goal line always seemingly being moved on you? Or maybe it is more like the Charlie Brown character who expects different results every time he goes to kick the football as Lucy is holding it.

3 Ways to Look Within for Happiness

That is the fleeting expression of happiness that is always an external pursuit. The truth is that we are happiness, love, peace and joy, first, and then the truth of that happiness will then manifest outside of ourselves.

Way 1: Find Your Happy Place

Understand that within us all is that place that we are our own truth. Maybe it has become obscured by life, by the opinions of others, by your expectations of what exactly happiness is supposed to be.

Whatever the reason, you must understand that there is a truth that is your joy that may be as simple as understanding that your very nature is love, first. There is a place that you go to, whether you know it or not, that gives you a sense of peace. It is not the place so much as who you are within that place. That is your happy place.

Way 2: Know That Who You Are in All Situations is the Joy You Bring

When a situation that is supposed to bring you a happiness within comes to you, understand it is you that brings any sense of joy to that place to begin with.

A situation, a place or a romance is not the happiness but simply an extension of the peace you bring into it. If you go to a party and everyone is standing around with scowling looks on their faces, was it the party that was bad?

One might say so, but have you ever been in a place where there is one soul that is so dynamic that they change the atmosphere of the room when they enter?

You are that one who can bring joy to a place where there may be none, but you have to believe it first. If it is an act, it will eventually fade away. It must be genuine.

Way 3: Live Your Joy When No One is Looking

This plays into Way 2 in that there must be a genuine expression of that joy found within for this to all make sense. Many would say that this is a process.

Yes and no, but i am more of the mindset that it is a decision that is strictly internal. There are no conditions that must be in place for you to understand that it is your birthright to be joy, to be love and to be peace.

No one must be in your life, no amount of money must be within your reach, you are not at the whims of others and their opinions of you in order to begin this process. It is simply an understanding that you are already that soul of love, peace and joy and you must embrace the essence of that within so as to live it without.

Sometimes it as simple as a decision. Let the process begin there.  In the end, it is a solitary journey that you must understand exists. Your journey then involves others on their solitary journey as well and joy becomes a manifesting destiny.

Live yours well.

Be a Person of Quality. Direct Your Power.

Until then…

Be Excellent, Expect the Best!
