    Truth vs Illusion

    In life, there is always this misconception of truth and a refusal to believe that you can see the illusion. That may sound confusing at first, but the truth is, that the truth is harder to find in your life because you must seek it out and the illusion is easier to find. It is the easier road to take because illusion is placed in your life for you. There are many factors that take away the truth in your life and replace it with illusion and the biggest factor in our view is fear.

    Parameters of Possibilities

    The time upon which you find yourself is a time to erase the parameters of possibilities (societal rules, beliefs, and limitations). These are drawn throughout your life and continue to be reinforced. Who draws them and why? The parameters (lines) are drawn using ‘pencils of possibilities’. The pencils can be reporters, politicians, teachers, physicians, parents, or anyone else of authority or influence. A few examples of these parameters of possibilities are that ‘you are not good enough’, ‘if you don’t go to college you will never amount to anything’ or ‘just get a job to get by, your dreams can wait”.

    Wanting Something Different

    As the Buddhist teachings say, "to live you must experience suffering." Throughout life, it's natural to endure sickness, injury, tiredness, and old age. However, when we look at our emotional suffering, such as loneliness, doubt, frustration, fear, embarrassment, anger, jealousy, disappointment, etc., these feelings are more difficult to accept.

    Life Transitions

    Does the unknown scare you enough that you settle with the life you have instead of moving forward onto the life you desire? Transitions in life are those times on your path when decisions bring more decisions, affecting more decisions and so forth. Surrounding these decisions are emotions of uncertainty. Which choice should I make? Which way should I go? Am I doing the right thing?

    Do you ever have conversations with yourself?

    I don't mean like hearing voices but more like thinking about things and questioning yourself? Or going over an important decision that you have to make again and again? This kind of conversation with yourself will not help you to solve your problems or make good decisions and is not productive or helpful.

    Regret Brings Pain and Pain Brings Growth

    Regret is an important aspect of spiritual growth. It forces inward reflection and action.

    The strength of weakness

    There is a misconception that strength is obtained through power. The truth is that strength can only be obtained through weakness. It is our weakness's that forces the examination of ourselves. Reflecting inward to except and face our weakness. Then and only then will our inward strength have an outlet to come outward. To be visable to not only ourselves, but to those around us.

    Are You On The Hero's Path?


    How can children's tales help us on our spiritual journey? Have you noticed that many children’s tales end with a victory of the heart? The hero, after following a tortuous path of struggles, dreams and hopes, always manages to fulfill their heart’s desire, while sometimes discovering it at the same time.

    Believe in Yourself


    In order for you to live your best life you must first believe in yourself and believe that you deserve it. There are no limits in this world, this is your world. You make up whatever you want to experience, you just have to reach out and grab it.

    Don?t Live Your Life Fearful


    Be appalled, even shudder But don’t worry, I’m here Don’t live your life fearful. Don’t lay down in defeat If you find yourself sinking…. Under pressure you deflate….. Speak my words of wisdom;  Rise up on your feet!
