Knowledge… Or Ignorance?

“Knowledge doesn’t bring chaos, ignorance does” ~from the movie ‘Lucy’.

We have more knowledge, yet more chaos than ever before… where does our ignorance lie?

We don’t know how to Live, Love, or be Free.

I was living only for me, always trying to ‘get’ love & freedom was all about ‘my’ instant gratification.

I should Live for all of us, ‘give’ Love & secure Freedom for future generations.

The goal for today: work for knowledge & use that knowledge to help others!

Have a great day everybody!

Be Nice

If you’re nice to me… I’ll be nice to you.

That’s lovely isn’t it… but I’m gonna take it a step further.

If you’re mean to me… I’ll be nice to you.

If you’re critical of me… I’ll be nice to you.

If you lie, cheat & steal from me… I’ll be nice to you.

Even if you flat out hate me… I’ll be nice to you.

Just to clarify… being nice does not mean being a doormat… it means taking the Right action in the face of wrong doing.

The goal for today: be nice… we all know it’s the Right thing to do!

Have a great day everybody!

Masquerade

I was talking to a friend about ‘planning’ & this thought came to mind… ‘Don’t let fear masquerade as planning’.

I have had many occasions in life where I would plan & plan & plan some more.

I called it planning & made it look like I was trying to be responsible, when really I was just procrastinating because I was afraid.

Afraid to make the change or the move or the tough decision.

The goal for today: contemplate… plan… pray… but don’t procrastinate!

Have a great day everybody!

Happiness, Freedom, Purity & Love

Freedom comes when the desire to be happy is stronger than the fear of being alone.

There have been many people throughout history that have tried to remind us that Freedom is far more important than safety… that Happiness is a Pure motive & fear is not.

I’ve adopted this belief because it has proven itself to me.

I should do the Right thing because it’s the Right thing to do… not because I’m afraid of what will happen if I don’t.

The goal for today: be motivated by Happiness, Freedom, Purity & Love!

Have a great day everybody!

Fear… The Destructive Power

Fear is easily the destructive power in the world.

Fear causes relationships to fail, opportunities to be missed, finances to go south, sleepless nights, ill health & any other problem I can dream up.

Finding a solution to fear is the single most important undertaking of our lives.

Getting rid of fear is vital & if you don’t know how… I have found a very workable method & would be glad to teach it to you.

The goal for today: spot, admit & correct my fears… & then show others how to do the same!

Have a great day everybody!

Personal Responsibility

When our store was robbed… 1st I blamed the criminal… 2nd I blamed a guy for not calling the cops when he saw this suspicious guy outside.

But before I could blame anyone else, the police said: “No cameras… that sucks!”

“Your register is right by the front door… you made it easy for him.”

“No drop safe… that’s a lot of cash to leave in the register.”

Should the criminal pay… sure.

Should that guy have called the police… probably.

But I am ultimately responsible for what befell my business.

The goal for today: personal responsibility!

Have a great day everybody!

Religious Or Not

I’m not a big fan of organized religion, but I am a big fan of ‘To each his own’.

That being said… when I read the Bible, I’m not looking for a system of theology.

I’m looking for Spiritual Principles that can give me a better idea about how to live Right.

Moses said ‘Thou shall not kill’… & Jesus said… If I Love you, I won’t kill you.

The goal for today: let the common sense of Real Love be the common denominator for all of us… religious or not!

Have a great day everybody!
