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!
There is an ancient ideology that uses a parable to explain their beliefs, and it goes kinda like this: God is The Great Architect… & man is the builder. This Great Architect drew up an absolutely flawless, perfect blueprint for life. He handed that blueprint to man & said… “Here you go. This is everything you could ever possibly need to build a great life for yourselves. Now get to it… go build Heaven on Earth.” But Earth doesn’t always feel like Heaven… does it? And now what do we believe… did the Architect screw up the floor plan, or did the builder misinterpret it… hmmmm. The goal for today: build Purity, Honesty, Unselfishness & Love into the world like the blueprint said… & see what Heaven on Earth really looks like! Have a great day everybody!
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!
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 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!
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!
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 Power that exists deep down inside of every man, woman, and child. This Power can accomplish miraculous things: it can give you strength when you have none left… it can give you courage when you are scared to death… it can give you intelligence, wisdom, and insight when you don’t know what to do… it can lead you, and guide you, and lift you up above any and all danger… and all you have to do is believe. The goal for today: believe that there is a Power greater than you, call it what you will & know that if you use that Power for good… it has no limits! Have a great day everybody!
“We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals; others by their acts” ~Dwight Morrow. This is a strange double standard that we live by. Most of us are unwilling to take the time to understand why people do what they do. Why do we assume that everyone’s intentions are malicious, except our own? You make a mistake & I judge you harshly; I make a mistake, but claim that because my intentions were good, I don’t deserve to be judged. I want to live in a world where people are quicker to understand, than they are to blindly judge… even if I’m the only one living in that world. The goal for today: use the brains God gave me to understand people. I can’t hate you if I understand you; and I can’t Love you if I don’t! Have a great day everybody!
In the end, there is only one question that really matters… “Did I do what I know in my heart is Right?” I watched a movie last night that stood as a stark reminder of the destructive nature of pride & ego. When we abandon the truth & compromise our morals, values & ethics, simply to prop up our reputation… then we are no longer the same people that we were so proud of being to begin with. The goal for today: screw pride, ego & reputation… just do what’s Right! Have a great day everybody!
