What do you do when you have control?
You make the right choice.
In other words, act responsibly with the power you wield. This is your chance to perpetuate harmony, or to cause disharmony, in your life. Life will reciprocate to you harmony or disharmony, based on how you handle the power you wield.
We are perfect in our imperfections
“Happiness comes and goes. But when life is really good and when things are really bad, having meaning gives you something to hold on to.”

After uploading the most recent podcast, I ran into this short video of Viktor Frankl, author of Man’s Search for Meaning:

He speaks about aiming for your greater potential to reach one’s true possibilities. 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”:
When you realize you don’t have control of the situation…
Trust in Life
Love is key, and you are the keyhole
Humility helps us to be invested in benefit for all, which in turn benefits us. This way things turn out best.
You have to be OK with mistakes.
Because you know what?
You’re going to make them.
Your daily life is your temple and your religion. Whenever you enter into it take with you your all – Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
The More We Can Forgive Others, The More We Can Forgive Ourselves
Desire The Good Thing
How do I desire the good thing?
You do not truly succeed if you are taking advantage of others. When you hold people back, you prevent your own growth. To build, you must build everyone and everything you interact with. Everyone and everything you work with. When you build in this manner, each component becomes stronger for your benefit. Even if you achieve goals by taking advantage, you are holding yourself back from much more than this, you have reached a miniscule step upon a colossal ladder that leads to other than your best interest.
Things will not change unless you change them, you have to take an active role in anything you want to change. Even thinking or feeling differently about something is an active role.
By thinking or feeling differently towards something you change your perspective, and more change occurs.
“SOW THE SEED THAT BINDS YOU
FEEL THE STEEL THAT SIGNS YOU
PUT UP ALL YOUR RESOURCES
AND WALK INTO THE MAGIC”
You are a unique combination of potential. Everything is a potential, if it is a potential on the molecular level
You make the decision of who you’re going to be
Right there, an important decision means who youre going to be
Remember your Goal,
and always look, be open to opportunities for the next step.
Who are you going to follow?
Follow your self. Follow…your…self.
Follow your * self.
Lift yourself up. Take control.
Do not put limitations on the infinite.
Spark The Flame. The Flame is within. An inner fire, that grows everytime you focus on it. This is the fire of your power, your power to affect your life and your world. Just like a physical fire, your flame affects everything it comes across, everything.
Spark The Flame, within yourself, and help to Spark the Flame in others. We are all matchstick figures, flammable to the highest degree.
It doesnt matter if a hundred, a thousand, or a million people have not accomplished what you dream of doing, they are not you. They have completely different lives, experiences, thoughts, and actions. Their shortcomings have no bearing on you, because this is your life, your story, your journey. Their story is done, yours is still being written. And you are the writer. You.
You may have heard the phrase “Power perceived is Power acheived.” This is essentially correct, however grossly misused. When people use this phrase, they usually mean “Power perceived (by others), is Power acheived (within yourself).” Using that phrase in this way is erroneous, and will never lead you to true power. Rather, “Power perceived (within), is Power acheived (within).” True power only sprouts from within, and the way others perceive you will be a testament to exactly how much power you perceive within, yourself. And there is no end to it. Remember, dig deeper, and all you’ll find is more to find…you are a creation of the infinite…you are literally made of infinite parts, it is impossible to count your particles!
Your brain allows you to realize this, and when you realize that you are an infinite being, you realize that your potential is infinite as well. There is no limit to what you can do, because there is no limit to you!!!
You must always be willing to learn, because when you stop learning you also stop growing
