The Key Elements

In order to find the real Truth, we must possess these key elements: open-mindedness, humility, courage & confidence. I can’t let my preconceived ideas close my mind, but at the same time… I have to have enough confidence to stand my ground once I do find the Truth. I have to be humble enough to know that I don’t know everything & then even more humble in knowing that there is always more Truth even after I do find some. If we seek the Truth, we will find the Truth… but we mustn’t get cocky, because there is always more Truth. The goal for today: Let humility open your mind, let confidence lead you to courage & let the real Truth set you free! Have a great day everybody!

The Secret

I want you to feel loved today, so I am going to share with you the secret to feeling loved that I have found. I have searched high & low… near & far. I have searched in churches, schools & social circles. I have tried to get the feeling from people, places & things. Every time I would get a slight feeling of it, I would try to hoard it, contain it & hang onto it. But now I have finally found the secret! It is an ancient secret, a complex equation, a paradoxical event, a mystery for the ages… a riddle seldom solved. And after all of that, here is the secret to feeling loved… GIVE IT! The goal for today: stop trying to get love… give it & see what real Love feels like! Have a great day everybody!

If…

If there is a God… would He want me to act out of fear or Purity? If there is a God… would He prefer that I be dishonest or Honest? If there is a God… how would He want me to live, selfishly or Unselfishly? If there is a God… would He have me fill my heart with resentment or Love? I’m pretty sure that we all know what the Right answers are to all of these questions… & it might be time for us all to start trying our best to live by them. The goal for today: let God remove your fear… tell yourself & others the Truth… care more about others than you do yourself… & top it all off with Love, understanding & forgiveness. Why? Because it’s the Right thing to do! Have a great day everybody!

Imagine

Imagine how simple life might be if there was only one solution to any & all problems… & we all agreed on it. Imagine if there was only one way to fix a relationship problem, a money problem, or a self-esteem problem. What if we could solve our violence, racism & addiction problems all in one fowl swoop. How cool would it be if there was a simple solution to all of our mental, emotional & physical health issues. What about our economic, social & religious disputes; how nice would it be to resolve some of those issues. And here it is: Do the Right thing, for the Right reason (Purity)… tell yourself & others the truth (Honesty)… give freely of yourself to others (Unselfishness)… & love unconditionally (Love). The goal for today: know that there is a simple solution to ALL of our problems! Have a great day everybody!

The Battle Within

Someone recently said to me… “I don’t know how I’m supposed to think or feel right now.” This is what happens when our heart tells us one thing, but our head tells us another. In this particular case it was a question of forgiveness… or justified anger. Their heart was telling them that they should follow the path of Love, Understanding & Forgiveness; but their head was screaming anger, resentment & vengeance. It is absolutely essential that we learn how to make the Right decisions in these moments! The goal for today: remember that when the battle within you is raging… you should always follow your heart! Have a great day everybody!

LEARN!

My friend Ashley made a statement yesterday about personal responsibility & it really struck a chord with me. We live in a world that is currently riddled with problems & everybody has a great idea about how “somebody else” can help you. Most of my life I was afraid to help people because I didn’t know how… then I enlisted in the military & they reminded me that ignorance is no excuse. Im saying this because we have too many problemed people & not enough problem solvers. The goal for today: if you don’t know how to help somebody… LEARN… because we ALL have a responsibility to help! Have a great day everybody!

Someday

Someday the world will listen when I say that fear is the root cause of ALL of our problems. Until then we can continue to waste our time with psychobabble that does nothing but confuse people even more than they already are; we can waste our time & money writing useless laws that accomplish nothing; & we can waste our time arguing about who’s at fault & whose responsibility it is to fix it… to do something about it! We aren’t fixing our problems because we refuse to expend the necessary amount of brain power to figure out what the true cause is to begin with. If you don’t know what caused the problem, you are 100% guaranteed to not be able to fix it. The goal for today: I’ve already done the work… please just listen! Have a great day everybody!

Please!

I need to help more people! We live in a troubled world… & it’s not necessary. Every problem has a solution… & every solution is simple. The main reason people aren’t solving their problems is because they don’t really know what caused them to begin with. Do you know why people lie, cheat & steal? Do you know why people are angry, depressed & anxious? Do you know why people excessively drink, drug & gamble? I do… & as a result, I feel an overwhelming sense of duty & responsibility to help people overcome these issues & regain control of their lives. The goal for today: please… let me help you! Have a great day everybody!

Dig Deep!

I think at times we all question ourselves & our ability to successfully navigate through all of the trials & tribulations of life. Am I strong enough… smart enough… good enough? We are faced with some pretty tough stuff sometimes, yet here we are… we’re still standing! I feel like a part of my purpose here is to help people see & understand that they are stronger than they know… smarter than they think… & that every single one of us is good enough to rise above it all & succeed at life. The goal for today: you’re here for a reason & you were sent here with the tools to fulfill your intended purpose; dig deep & I promise you will find an unlimited source of strength, wisdom & heart! Have a great day everybody!

There Is A Difference

There is a difference between freedom & entitlement. There is a difference between capitalism & greed. There is a difference between helping & enabling. There is a difference between patriotism & politics. There is a difference between God & church. What is the difference? One is Pure… & one is rooted in fear. Can you guess which one is which? Can we tell the difference between them in our everyday lives? And most importantly do we have the fortitude to do what’s Right when push comes to shove? The goal for today: know what’s Right… & then do it! Have a great day everybody!
