Begin with Love

Love is the fundamental center of our universe.
Hate and fear try to worm their way in and take
over, time and time again. Experience says that
every time they do, the best of the human spirit
rises up to say no.

Want to help building a better world right now?
Make a pledge to always begin from a place of
love and the results will astonish you. The dark
has no real tools to fight love. Loving yourself
enough not to hook into your own dark side is a
very strong beginning. That’s how they beat us.

Living Consciously

Do you feel lately like you’re being swept
along against your will in a tidal wave of
“fate”? The dictionary’s definition of fate:
“The course of someone’s life, or the outcome
of a particular situation for someone or
something, seen as beyond their control.”

We are part of everything around us,
including those big events seemingly out of
our control. We do have a say in our
destinies, but, this requires firstly that
we start living consciously.

The bigger the external problems seem,
the more apt we may be to engage in denial
or escapism. Confronting what is uncomfortable
may seem like too much work in the short
term, “I’ll deal with this tomorrow…”, but in
the long run that’s how we claim our lives
and start living them intentionally and fully.

There is no time like now to claim your life.

This article offers interesting thoughts and tips
about living consciously:

A Reverent Life

Reverence for life feels like it is in short supply these days.
We are each instruments of change. When we love life and
embrace the beauty, when we make that an essential part of
our lives every day, our lives become sacred. We bring
reverence to the world.

Imagination’s Power

Do you use the power of imagination to
to create and expand your life? If not,
you are not alone. Although right-brained
creative thinking does come naturally to
some people, it does not to others.

Personally I think our educations systems
need an overhaul. We are taught “known
knowledge” and we’re expected to regurgitate
it by rote. There is some value in that,
but it is also very limiting to the innate
potential of our human consciousness.

What if part of our education from a young
age was geared towards developing our
imagination and creative thinking skills?
New inventions and solutions to existing
problems require creative thinking.

If you recognize that your brain is too
locked down in “what is” and you’re not
giving any time to “what could be”, here is
a good article with 10 tips on how to
get your creative mind purcolating:

Be Yourself

As Oscar Wilde so succinctly put it,
“Be yourself, everyone else is taken.”

Society has this need to shape and
mold us, to make us “be acceptable”.
Perhaps this has never been more
strongly true then it is right now.

Becoming our most authentic selves,
learning to be true to ourselves, is
sometimes a lifetime journey. But it
does not have to be! We are not born
with the masks that society encourages
or demands that we wear. We acquire
them to “get along” and to “fit in”.

Look to nature as an example. There
are no games; nature is authentic.
No giraffe is wasting his life hating
his “too long” neck and trying to be
the best zebra ever.
