Quotation of the day

"Life consists of what a man is thinking about all day."

Ralph Waldo Emerson



What is it you think about as the minutes of your day passes by?  When I first heard this idea a few years ago, I realized I had never really thought about what it is that I think about.  I began to pay attention and was shocked.  Prior to this revelation I would have described myself as positive and hopeful however, paying attention to the thoughts that run constantly, seemingly in the background, were shockingly negative, pessimistic, judgmental and limiting.  I believed that changing the thoughts to more accepting, positive and empowering would be simple;  oh my, like our muscles memorize movement our mind has years of memorization that required intent and repetition to change. 

I learned in this process there were many things that existed in my life that I had formerly believed were present due to external circumstances.  Tunes out to be the theme of the thoughts, a dialogue not so unconsciously running in the background, was being manifested into reality.  Quite an empowering lesson.  Even the most minor of changes, deciding to make my thoughts positive, hopeful, and empowering had an incredible compounding effect evidenced by that manifesting in my life.  While I have much work to do, the effort of paying attention to my thoughts, accepting I am where I have created; then deciding to intently manifest thoughts (what an idea) that I desire to manifest to fill my life....   over time that is what I have.

Quotation of the Day


"We must not say every mistake is a foolish one."

Cicero



Shedding the thought that mistakes are embarrassing is a struggle!!  Well, it has been for me.  Mistakes are the evidence you're in search of the fruit of any experience.  Growing up in a world where I was somewhat protected from disappointment and failure distorted my perception of feeling accomplishment through effort regardless of the outcome on the path.  I perceived that growing up in a world where we share our experiences with each other in hopes of improving others experiences that those offering guidance on my path in gaining wisdom through experience were ones of judgement and criticism.  Maybe some were.  But allowing that thought process was a costly one.  While some lessons can be learned via others experiences for each of us there are the lessons we must learn first hand via experience; even if the same path as another has taken before you the element "experience" is that that creates wisdom/compassion.  I feared the judgement that would come from the one who traveled the path I was currently learning from; even though my lesson may deliver me to completely different perspective or outcome. 

This is not to say that learning from another's experience does not have value.  I am very grateful for some lessons I learned with out personally experiencing the path, thank you.  However, whether it's stubbornness or the requirement of the experience that will compel me to experience my own lessons for my own results, I hope to remain focused on that, the value in MY path and experience and celebrate the outcome with a sense of accomplishment.  I pray for feelings or encouragement and promotion to others on their path as well.

Quotation of the Day

...that what your heart thinks is great, is great.

The soul's emphasis is always right.

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson said that, and he was correct.

The mind is the last part of yourself to listen to.

It thinks of everything you can lose. The heart thinks of

everything you can give, and the soul thinks of

everything you are.

 

I will leave it up to you to decide which of those

three is the most important...



When ever I listen to the right voice, the feeling that accompanies it are that of enthusiasm, hope, and are uplifting and empowering.  When I listen to the voice that is accompanied by feelings powerlessness, withdrawal, avoidance and dread indicates my mind at the helm and this is not the voice to follow.  Soul vs mind;  mind provides the ability to learn and survive.  The Soul is our navigator guiding us to our true north assuring our path and destination are congruent with our purpose.

Quotation of the day


...that time stays long enough for those who use it.

 

Leonardo da Vinci said that, and he was right.

There are those who say that "time flies," but they are

those who do not use every minute of it. Time is actually

your greatest gift. It is better than money. Therefore, invest it wisely.

 

What will you invest your time in today?

What will be your return? What did you invest your time in

yesterday? What was your return? Is it "time" to use your

time more wisely? Just wondering...



These, this one, this one, this one, are the moments of your LIFE.  Habits created via "inactive" living replaces decision making; creating a perception of comfort and happiness.  But is it really, is it really comfort and happiness to experience these moments of our lives as an observer?  No risk.  That may be what tricks us into thinking it is "comfortable".  When you take a moment to remember your most exciting, fun, meaningful, treasured moments, look again;  weren't you engaged, involved, invested in the moment?


Your LIFE is worth "thinking about", and "planning" how you are going to spend it, how you are going to spend your most valuable asset.

Quotation of the Day


...that if you think you have nothing to lose, you win. If

you think you have something to win, you lose.

 

It all drives to motivation. Why are you doing what you

are doing right now? To avoid loss? To achieve gain?

Wrong reason both times. Life is not about win-and-lose.

Life is about being or not being, expressing or not

expressing, who you are.

 

Don't do things for personal benefit. And don't do things

to avoid personal damage. Do things to feel personal

authenticity. Then your life will make sense, no matter

what is going on around you.

 

It is clear why you have been told this today, yes? 

-
I have struggled much through out my life to discount "others" opinion and do that spontaneously bubble up inside of me and living that true authenticity he talks about.  Too often, I succomb to my impression of pier pressure (although I am confident that "others" were not thinking of me as my mind pictured them to be) and do that that I perceive would be palatable to those around me.  I wonder how often my impression were completely false and I did a muted version of my desire to please no one!!!!!

Join me, remind me, and aid me by being an example, as I will for you, and let's live our own truth, our own authenticity thereby enriching our life and our world.   Win/Win.  

Namaste,
Jacky

Quotation of the Day


...the goodness in your life does not come to you

from someone else. When you see this, you will be free.

 

There is no reason and no need to "play up" to another,

or to try to remain in their good graces. Remain in your

own, by not betraying yourself. Simply speak your truth,

with gentleness and love.

 

And have courage, for what you seek is not outside of

you. It is not a gift from another person. It is yours -- to

give, not to acquire. Let no one, therefore, hold you

hostage. Not your partner, not your boss, not your

family....




Don't we all have these people in our lives?  Those who present a calm, sound and accepting presence.  It seems they can say something that may difficult to the listener to hear yet their demeanor delivers no sting, just truth, accepting, loving truth.  It seems if I can attain this quality, to be true myself seeking this truth from with-in that the gift I offer would be of more value.

Quotation of the Day

LIFE Partners:  I love this quotation:  As LIFE is about to launch and we examine our role/purpose in this unprecedented, timely and essential industry, this quotation embodies my interpretation of the purpose LIFE embodies.  


"The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be."

Oprah Winfrey



Reading this quotation reminds me that I must spend time "planning" my day assuring I am investing as much toward  the outcome of my life as I would invest in assuring for a fun, frugal and organized vacation.

Quotation of the Day


...that on this day will you have an opportunity to attend

your own inauguration.

 

You are invited by life to elect yourself a Spiritual

Leader, and to take office today. What does a

spiritual leader say? A spiritual leader does not say,

"Follow me." A spiritual leader says, "I'll go first."

 

Decide today to take the oath: I promise to "go first"

in demonstrating forgiveness, compassion, understanding,

generosity, kindness, cheerfulness, positivity, and love.



I promise, to "go first" in demonstrating forgiveness, compassion, understanding, generosity, kindness, cheerfulness, positivity, and love.  


I ask you to gently point out when I fail as I am truly desirous exhibiting these qualities at all times.  Thank you.

Quotation of the Day


"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens."

John Homer Miller 


The moments clicking by are flavored by our state of mind and interpretation of the events before us.  If our state of mind is laced with negative or pessimistic attitudes then our auto response to life's events tends to be negative or pessimistic delivering us that experience.  If our auto response is optimistic, hopeful, accepting and positive hence our experience.  It is true, we cannot control events we experience however, we have full control of manifesting the ambiance with which we interact with all of our experiences hence; we can control the flavor in which we experience each moment.   

Love you all.

My Quotation Gift to YOU

On this day of your life I believe God wants you to know...

...that you should never be content with so little when you can reach out for something big.

 

Charles L. Allen asked a question about that, wondering why so many people settle for so little. You do not have to place yourself among them. The world is an abundant place. Abundant with opportunity, abundant with good fortune, abundant with ideas, and abundant with love.

 

Reach into that abundance and take what is rightfully yours. It is your inheritance, gifted to you by God. Let yourself have it. Do not fail to reach for it for fear that it will not come to you. How can it come to you if you do not reach for it?

 

Do not be content with so little. Reach, stretch, for something big.




This is about NOT settling!  It's NOT about what is deserved.  It is about accepting what is, that abundance exists and simply the knowing of it, accepting of it, taps into the creative abundance of anything your desires can dream up.  Dream, believe, allow it, enjoy it, then it contagiously spreads around you.  Let it.

Quotation of the Day

"I claimed myself and remade my life."
—  Dorothy Allison


Good Morning:
Just like those pesky story problems contain the "red herrings", I hope to exercise critical thinking skills rather than trick you (lol), life is full of them too.  It is incredibly easy to get side tracked from ones purpose with all the "red herrings" life provides.  Some, may be wrapped in amazingly powerful, essential qualities that we empower by allowing them impact who we are today, what we do and feel; other "red herrings" allowed to influence how life's moments are spent come from incredibly inconsequential sources, yet we allow them to have power in life via our thoughts and attention, responding to them.  
It is amazing how little credibility is given to our own inner voice.  The source of greatness, the connection and validation of our purpose.  The guiding tools that would best keep life on course  manifests through those things that bring us joy, a feeling of value and validation/accomplishment.  To stay on course, these things require attention and value distracting us from our "red herrings".    
For me, to remain focused on my purpose requires daily attention, refocusing my attention/action to those activities true to me and my purpose, giving voice and physicality to the grandest version of the greatest vision I have ever held of who I am!  Everything else is beside the point.
Today, I recommit to reclaiming my life from my red herrings and make my life the greatest version of my greatest vision ever held of my own potential.  

Love you all.

Quotation of the Day

Challenges are what you came for. And you are

never, ever, given a challenge you cannot overcome.

 

The purpose of life is to give you a chance to be the grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about Who You Are. When challenges arrive, then,  move straight to clarity: This is what you came for.

 

Now rise to this occasion, and know that you have

every resource with which to create the right and

perfect outcome.

 

 

Now and as a child, I believed I could be one who calms, loves and promotes others; solution oriented and a problem solver.  These were a few of my grandest visions of myself and who I must strive each moment to be/become.  To accomplish this I have been plagued with curbing my judgment of others, whew constant work!!!  I must allow them the same I grace and understanding I afford myself.  I am learning and working daily to keeping my focus on me, my true project, and only extend only acceptance and love to others.


I remember many times being submerged in circumstances that challenged my belief I could overcome them, even altering my thoughts to believing I deserved these struggles.  Now being on the other side of them I can see that who I am and what I am capable of today is directly related to the surmounting of struggle.

Quotation of the Day

..that it is the neglect of timely repair that makes

rebuilding necessary.

Richard Whately said that:  Take a

look today at what you need to repair. Who has been

hurt by you...or ignored?

 

Don't get into a lot of guilt around this -- just repair it.



Hi Everyone:
The message in this quotation requires sharing.  I know that in my daily activities I neglect to nurture and love those I come in contact with appropriately.  With this wonderful reminder, I intend to take notice, be loving, accepting and promoting to all and look at all my relationships and immediately repair any requiring it. 

I was especially grateful for the reminder to not get caught up in guilt or the details of the circumstance of these situations requiring repair, just repair them.  

Love you, I hope this message is meaningful and helpful to you.

Quotation of the Day

Neale Donald Walsh sent me this message today:
 
On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know...
...that "Why is this happening?" is the most useless
question in the Universe.
 
The only really profitable question is, "What?" As in,
"What do I choose now?" This question empowers.
The "why" question simply perplexes, and rarely
satisfies even when it gets a good answer.
 
So don't try to "figure it out." Stop it. Just focus on
what you now wish to create. Keep moving forward.
There's nothing behind you that can possibly serve
you better than your highest thoughts about tomorrow.


The past serves as an effective teacher.  An honest assessment of past actions can be painful yet it provides an astonishingly accurate lesson plan.  This quotation unearthed my history with "why".    My daughters were asked "why" at every mistake I interpreted they may have made.  In the moment I thought I was teaching my daughters to think but, what I was really doing was releasing my own frustration.  Not only did I make others suffer from this useless exercise; I exacerbated my own through insufferable reevaluation of my circumstances believing if I could understand "why" I could resolve the problem.   Stuck in this repetitive loop of thought I propagated no action, no "what", no decision to move forward with intent to improve.  Resisting accepting the circumstances of the situation at the time allowed me to continue thinking I possessed all the skills I needed, no improvement required.  To break this pattern, it was necessary to accept improving did not mean my state was insufficient but that improving, learning, growing, is constant, valuable, rewarding and life-long. .

Quotation of the Day


....that he who eats till he is sick must fast till he is well.

 
That is a Hebrew proverb, and it has to do with a lot
more than food. Look to see what behaviors you are
indulging in over and over again that are clearly not
serving you. Then, go on a "bad habit diet."
 
I mean it. I'm not kidding, Pick one bad habit, one
bad behavior, a day for five days. You can do this.
Stop doing the stuff you're doing that obviously
does not serve you--or others.
 
This friendly "nudge" came from your Self, you know...

 
This message came from Neale Donald Walsh.  I found it incredibly profound and relevant to me and wanted to share it.  Reading this brought to my attention ways in which I indulge myself to an unhealthy level and how this is inhibiting in multiple aspects of my life.  As the quotation says over eating is an easy one identify and understand its consequence however, the more subtle over-indulgences are difficult to isolate, identify and understand the extent of their ramification.  

I know that when I don't want to do something I often fail to overcome that feeling and accomplish the task.  This is the most obvious bad habit that I must diet.  I am confident this discovery will reveal more diets I require.

Quotatation of the Day


"Be you dust or be you star, to be what you must you must give up what you are."--Yusuf

 

 

Acceptance and resistance cannot co-exist within.  If I choose to grow the feeling of resistance is the trigger to knowing I am forsaking who I am meant to be to stay who I am.  I feel resistance daily, moments I choose not accept an idea, resisting believing in what is possible, refusing to accept others as they are, failing to believe in myself and that I am worthy of the wonder that s available and offered in growth/change. .

Quotation of the Day

"Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them."

John Updike
 
The only limitation that exists anywhere, is with-in us.  This includes dreaming and the realization of dreams.  Dreams spontaneously generate and if we practice allowing them to cultivate on their own, their magnitude would simply amaze us.  Then, if we learn to release them with the enthusiasm and hope they produce, nature will respond.  Let's practice.
