The Ears Have It

The Ears Have It

There are few things as annoying or useless as a person who hears you when you're talking, but doesn't actually listen to anything you're saying. You know the type, right?  They seem to be so much more interested in what they have to say than what you're saying.  It makes for a pretty silly "conversation", doesn't it?  It's not much fun and you end of feeling like you were in some sort of a competition that you weren't quite prepared for. I'm willing to bet you don't feel real fond of individuals like this, but you really need [...]

Quiet Down

Quiet Down

One of the best things you can do for yourself is make the time each day to be still.  Be quiet.  Find peace. Meditation is really a beautiful thing. When you're quiet, you transport yourself from the craziness of the day-to-day grind into the world of your inner self.  In this place you can find that peace that seems so hard to come by when the distractions of life are otherwise bombarding you from all sides.  And this personal time can be a miraculous recharge for your whole system, even if you just do it for 10 minutes a [...]

Yard Work

Yard Work

"So if you think your life is complete confusion because your neighbors got it made, just remember that it's a grand illusion, and deep inside we're all the same" - lyrics from "The Grand Illusion" by Dennis DeYoung of Styx It sure is easy to look around and think to ourselves that life would be a whole lot beter for us if only we had... (fill in the blank) It's a challenge for sure in this Infomation Age, which was ushered in on the heels of the Sit-In-Front-of-the-TV-for-Eight-Hours-a-Day Age. I mean, if you live in America, you're [...]

Do You Hear That?

Do You Hear That?

I wanted to share something really cool with you tonight. My son is featured in the new inspirational video by Dex Elliott Sanders, for his song, "Heard a Voice", and I'd love for you to check it out. Here's the video link: HEARD A VOICE Besides being proud of my son, I think it's really a great song and a powerful video.  I hope that you'll watch it and perhaps even leave a comment for Dex or show your support by "liking" it.  I really think it's important that we share the great work of others who are out there following their [...]

Lucky You

Lucky You

"With a little luck, we can help it out We can make this whole damn thing work out" -lyrics from "With a Little Luck" by Paul McCartney Without question, in my mind, there are lucky people who walk among us.  They are the luckiest of the lucky and they seem to glide right into great opportunities with the ease that the rest of us use to breathe.  And, there are also unlucky people out there.  The kind of people who couldn't catch a break with a baseball mitt.  In fact, if it weren't for bad luck, they'd have no luck at [...]

Believe it or Not

Believe it or Not

I heard someone say the other day that there are really only three possible answers to anyone's genuine prayer.  They said the answer is either "Yes", "Not Yet", or "There's Something Even Better". I really think that's the best way I had ever heard this concept described.  I think it's exactly right.  And its also incredibly empowering. No matter your perspective on prayer or asking, you have to love the idea that is being presented here.  It seems to echo the Biblical principle that you will receive whatever you ask for, if you [...]

Learn To Unleash

Learn To Unleash

So what are we suppose to do when we get frustrated? After all, it happens to every single one of us.  Yes, even the positive minded. If you are pushing forward in life and are committed to learn and grow, sooner or later you're going to get somewhere you've never been and it's going to be like hitting a wall. Frustration can come at us from all angles.  When we don't achieve a desired result in the time table we expected it to materialize, it aggravates us.  We might also get flustered because we don't have a frame of reference [...]

Late Night Lesson

Late Night Lesson

Something really cool happened to me a couple of nights ago.  It was one of those times in my life where I realized that I was being taught a great lesson, even though the essence of the actual moment was very simple. As it sometimes works out in my house, I happened to be up late one night writing.  My little girl was in my bed for the night.  The kids pull the ol' switcheroo sometimes, so my son was already sawing Zzz's with my wife in one of the kid's rooms...both of our children are still young enough to get away with this, and to be [...]

Today, We Die!

Today, We Die!

How can we start to enjoy the fullness of life and experience the abundance that surrounds us?  How is it that we can really begin to live the way that we were created to live? Well, by dying, of course. Okay, not dying in the traditional sense of the word.  Although, because we are spiritual beings, that may be when the fun really starts...who knows? No, the dying I'm talking about is that surrender of self, that letting go of the ego, that relinquishing of total control.  You know, the really, really hard thing to do! I talked [...]

Sweet Surrender

Sweet Surrender

If you are one of those people that have interest in learning how to manifest your desires and create the life that you believe you are entitled to live, then you probably have at least a couple of lists outlining the necessary steps to achievement.   And, you have no doubt read or heard the phrase "Let go" mentioned as a key part of the manifesting process.  It sounds great, but feels a little funny. If you have ever struggled with something in your life that seemed too big or overwhelming for you to deal with, and you sought the help [...]
