Even where there is fear, it doesnt mean we wont overcome. That is where courage lives.
“Every person is sacred. Every human life is a parable, a story which has spiritual value.”
-Anthony T. Padovano
Just wanted to share, that it seems like I will be required to be mostly straightedge. Maybe a little portion of a hookah every once in a blue might be ok, but even that I dont know.
- I cannot smoke cigarettes because even one now will create in me a hacking coughing fit
- I cannot drink alcohol because even one sip may cause me to binge where I become a danger to the lives of myself and others
- I cannot smoke weed, because the last two times I broke my abstinence from marijuana I became extremely emotionally distraught, where I am at risk of wanting to leave this world.
Looks like this leaves me with tea and hot sauce 🙂
Jim Carrey has been going through an “existential discovery” for some years
“I used to be a guy who was experiencing the world, and now I feel like the world and the universe experiencing a guy.”
“Here’s the thing, if we have goals and dreams, and we want to do our best, and if we love people and we don’t want to hurt them or lose them, we should feel pain when things go wrong. The point isn’t to live without any regrets…We need to learn to love the flawed, imperfect things that we create and to forgive ourselves for creating them.”
1) Be grateful. for your Life, first thing when you wake up, and last thing when you go to sleep, every single day.
2) Interact more. with people you Love.
3) Consume inspiration. and uplifting content: books, audios, videos, events,
4) Practice meditation. every single day. At least 2 minutes a day.
Gratitude starts NOW.
The infinite depth of Gratitude:
Each moment must be submerged in Gratitude:
If this moment cannot, no other moment will suffice.
After uploading the most recent podcast, I ran into this short video of Viktor Frankl, author of Man’s Search for Meaning:
Also found online here:
He speaks about aiming for your greater potential to reach one’s true possibilities. Enjoy 🙂
This podcast ended up being over 1 hour long! Enjoy!
I ran into this excerpt, regarding how healthy it is to explore the unknown parts of ourselves, sometimes referred to as our “shadow”.
Excerpt is by Caroline Myss, co-creator of the work “Sacred Path of the Shadow”:
As all types of people and texts and theories and such give advice on how to make what you want happen in Life, I find it extremely interesting how the desperation of one person “A” assures that person “A” gets what they want or need, while the desperation of person “B” assures that person “B” does not get what they want or need.
What is the difference between desperation that gains and desperation that loses?
It seems to me the answer is something along these lines:
It is “color”, the tone of the desperation vibration.
Desperation that gains says: ‘I need this thing and in some way or other I am going to get it.’
Desperation that loses says: ‘I need this thing and I think I will never get it.’
Leap of Faith
Sometimes the Faith is exhibited by knowing that you dont have to jump.
I think it will be about once per week for new episodes. Will be talking about Life, and trying to keep things inspirational.
Will aim to keep the episodes around half an hour long.
Here is the first episode, about 5 minutes long. Enjoy!
If you are not enjoying the Present Now,
it will be harder to enjoy the Present if and when you get what you want…
Happy with what you have now,
is a precursor to having what you want…
Mistakes are proof that you are trying
A proposed working definition for Love:
“I choose you in my life,
over not having you.”
And if you need to decide between loving two things,
it is not being handled right,
because love is unconditional.
If you dont see many signs,
it can be difficult to believe.
The irony is,
if you believe,
you will see more signs.
