Common peril… Common solution… Common journey

Imagine what life might be like if everyone openly & honestly admitted their own mistakes.

We would find that we are not so different after all.

We all make mistakes… in fact, we all make the same mistakes & that means we all have the same solution.

If we could understand this, even to a minor degree… we wouldn’t feel so alone.

The goal for today: practice humility… find our similarities… learn the common solution & see what the Brotherhood of Man really feels like!

Have a great day everybody!

Levels Of Understanding

We are all at different levels of understanding in life & that’s why it’s so important for me to learn how to communicate with people in a clear & simple manner.

Even when the topic is complex… the communication doesn’t have to be.

God is a complex thing to talk about, but if we stick to the basics, listen to one another & keep our egos in check… we can find common ground.

The goal for today: communicate clearly… understand thoroughly… & Love unconditionally!

Have a great day everybody!

A Real Leader

A real leader doesn’t tell people what to do… he teaches them what to do.

When I was trying to get my life in order, I found one of those ‘real’ leaders.

He didn’t fix my problems for me… he didn’t bark orders from his pedestal & he didn’t demand that I bow to him.

He introduced me to a better way of life, if I cared to have it.

He taught me how to help myself & encouraged me to follow my own conscience.

Then he suggested that I go out & become a leader myself.

The goal for today: be a real leader & really help people!

Have a great day everybody!

A Simple Formula

“Trust God, clean house, help others” ~Anon.

The 3 things that matter most to me are, my relationship with God, which is an active one… I don’t just call on God when I have a problem.

My willingness to see the Truth, which means knowing that if I’m disturbed… there is something wrong with me.

And my Honest desire to help others, which is the best way to keep my own life in order.

The goal for today: follow this simple formula to a Peaceful, Contented, Useful Life!

Have a great day everybody!

Follow Your Own Conscience

“Attraction rather than promotion” ~Anon.

Someone once said to me: “You better believe!” & I basically said: “Go f*** yourself!”

Years later someone said to me: “Why don’t you choose your own conception of God” & I said: “That’s a great idea! Can you help me?”

Forcing my beliefs on people, will drive them further away.

Demonstrating my beliefs, will draw people in.

The goal for today: live it… don’t push it or sell it or try to scare people into it!

Real Christianity = Freedom of Religion!

Have a great day everybody!

See & Seize The Opportunities

The attitude I take toward something or someone will dictate the affect that it has on me.

If I hate my job… I will be unhappy doing it.

If I constantly find fault with my girlfriend… I will have an unhappy relationship.

Even the weather can make me miserable if I let it… but only if I let it.

The goal for today: view a job as an opportunity to help people… view my girlfriend as an opportunity to ‘give’ Love… do my best to take a positive attitude into all my affairs & be happy!

Have a great day everybody!

I Don’t Want To Be A Hypocrite

“We talked of intolerance, while we were intolerant ourselves” ~Anon.

If I had a nickel for every time I bitched about somebody doing something that I had been guilty of doing many times myself… I’d be rich.

I get mad when people lie, as if I’ve never lied.

I get mad when people are selfish, as if I’ve never been selfish.

I expect you to understand me, when I’m unwilling to try to understand you.

The goal for today: stop setting standards for others to live up to & start practicing personal responsibility instead!

Have a great day everybody!
