Achieving your Desires

This blog is the result of my own thoughts combined with those of an unknown author. The thoughts are not all mine, although I do agree with them and wish to thank the original author  for most of the content.

I recently finished reading ,”The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown, author of the Divinci Code. A fascinating book in it’s own right. The book finally brought out in the last chapter what life is all about. It fully explains how we can achieve all we want and need in life.

And as is true with most profound discoveries, the answer is so simple and easy to discover it is overlooked by almost everyone,and understood by even fewer people.

We always assume that all profound and great truths need to be complicated and hard to comprehend, hidden from all but the elite. Most often, truth is right under our nose and in plain sight , and very often , as my mother would always say,” if it was a snake, it would bite you”.

The truth is that the Universe has been answering your wants and desires all  your life, but you cannot receive the correct answers unless you are aware.  Be aware of everything around you, because you are receiving the answers to your questions in every moment of the day.  The channels those answers can come through are varied and unlimited.  They can be delivered in the form of a newspaper headline that attracts your attention, or overhearing someone speaking, or a song on the radio, or signage on a truck passing by, or receiving a sudden inspiration. All we need to do is remember to remember, and become aware!

The rest is easy.

I have found on my own life and in others’ lives that we do not think well of ourselves or love ourselves completely.  To not love ourselves can keep what we want from us. By not loving ourselves, we are literally pushing what we desire  away from us.

We have been conditioned by society and those around us to often expect the worse, and even some think we need to repay all karma before we can deserve all the good that should be available to us. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

We could never repay all the supposedly “bad” karma we have built up over the past. Very often, while paying off one karmic debt, other debt is accumulated , it can be an endless cycle. We need to remember as we are experiencing life, others are also interacting with us and learning their own life lessons.

The key to repaying our karmic debts, is not to just repay it, but to forgive ourselves and others in the process. Because of our so-called bad karma, others have learned as well.

Everything we want, whatever it may be, is motivated by love regardless of if we realize it or not. It is to experience the feelings of love  in having those things–youth, money, the perfect person, job, body, or health.  To attract the things we love we must transmit love, and those things will appear immediately.

The catch is, to transmit the highest frequency of love, you must love yourself, and that can be difficult for many.  If you focus on the outside and what you see now, you  trip yourself up, because what you see and feel about you now is the result of what you have thought in the past.

To love yourself fully, you must focus on a new dimension of You.  You must focus on the “Golden Source” inside of You.  Take a moment and sit still.  Focus on feeling the soul, or life presence located near the heart chakra.  As you focus on the presence within, it will begin to reveal itself to You.  It is a feeling of pure love and bliss, and it is perfection.  That presence is the perfection of You.  That presence is the real You.  As you focus on that presence, as you feel, love, and praise that presence, you will love yourself fully, quite possibly for the first time in your life.

Any time you look at yourself with critical eyes, switch your focus immediately to the presence within, and its perfection will reveal itself to You.  As you do this, all imperfections that have manifested in your life will dissolve, because imperfections cannot exist in the light of this presence.  Whether you want to regain perfect eyesight, dissolve disease and restore well-being, turn poverty into abundance, reverse aging and degeneration, or eradicate any negativity, focus on and love the presence within you and perfection will manifest.

We each create our own reality.

The absolute truth is that the “I” is perfect and complete;

the real “I” is spiritual and can therefore never be less than

perfect; it can never have any lack, limitation, or disease

If it Hurts, Move.

Several years ago ,we were involved in a network marketing company.  The company had a new product and thus we did quite well for quite some time.

The company , as do most multilevel companies would often hold motivational meetings and we attended as often as we could. Hoping to stay motivated, and get new ideas to pass on during our own motivational meetings.

During one such meeting our trainer relayed how people are often like a dog laying on a nail. He went on to say that an old dog will often lay on a nail and never get up and move because it doesn’t hurt enough. The dog is perfectly content to just lie there as long as the pain doesn’t get too severe.

People are like that also, they will often complain because something in their life isn’t as they would like it, but they often won’t do anything to change it. It doesn’t hurt enough for them to do anything . It’s easier to suffer a little than go through the agony of change, not knowing what lies head  if they decide to make some changes in their life.

This often goes on for years, not being happy, but not being unhappy enough to force them to move off the nail.

Finally , either the situation keeps getting worse, or the individual finally decides they have had enough and deserve better. They are finally prompted to action.

The pain of lying on the nail finally exceeds the pain of moving forward and they once again spring into action, creating the life they could have only imagined previously.

The Power of Purpose

The Power of Purpose

I thought this was good.

You can only become what you dare to imagine .

Purpose goes way beyond intention. It embraces the inner picture you have of yourself and your sense of what’s possible.

Purpose gives your life continuity , while supporting you to be alive in the present moment.

No one else can ”give” you purpose ; only you can discover and live it.

Purpose lets you know :

What kind of person you are and want to be.

What kind of life you want to live.

What”trace” you want to leave behind.

Discovering your purpose is your journey.

Discovering your purpose is central to the great adventure of living.

Discovering purpose is also about discovering love : what you love to do ; what makes you feel most alive ; what brings you most easily into connection with others what brings and gives happiness.

                                 A brand -new day.

Focusing on your intention each morning is a powerful way to begin your day.

Even when your intention is familiar ,experience it as  though of thought itself was newly born this morning.Stephanie Dowrick.

2012 and Beyond

2012: And Beyond

2012 will see many changes in our way of life and the world around us. To the observant eye , it has already begun.

Much of the current unrest in the world can be attributed to these changes coming about. During this ascension process, the planet and it’s inhabitants will begin playing a new game of life. Many of these events were foretold in the ancient texts of many of our ancestors. The Mayan calendar for one, foretold of these events as long as 5,000 years ago.

As the earth enters a new era, many things will change, as well as some of the ways we have been accustomed. The advent of technology will help change many things. With instant communications , no longer will politicians be able to tell one group one thing and some one in another part of the country something else, with the internet we know instantly when some event occurs, no matter where on earth it happens. Politicians and for that fact no one will be able to lie because of the easy access to internet and video

The earth, as well as the universe and it’s inhabitants are constantly changing and evolving, ascending into realms yet unimaginable. As we ascend and evolve, some old games we have been playing with each other will be lost and new “games” will be remembered. We will finally be playing the “game” of remembering who we are, and where we came from.

During the past several thousand years we have forgotten who we are, where we came from and most importantly of all , we have forgotten that we are all connected to that Divine source “from whence we came”.

We have forgotten that God’s laws , or the laws of nature are unchangeable and if not followed will lead to a life of despair, not only on a personal level, but a community   level as well. People will begin to understand their connection to not only spirit, but the connection to people from other worlds and dimensions.

Many things will come to light as far as the connection of world governments and people from other star systems.

As I write this in 2010, there are many forces in our American government that would want to destroy our way of life, many people also want a more socialistic or Marxist Government, one who in their view would provide for them from cradle to grave. Sorry to inform you, but that Utopia doesn’t exist.

The human spirit doesn’t want to be taken care of, it only wants a playing field where it can grow, learn and achieve to it’s highest level. This will become more apparent as time goes along, people will be elected to government who realize this, not only in the fall of 2010, but also in the presidential election of 2012.

After 2012, there will be a more level playing field as some of the old corrupt ways of doing things give way to more honesty and openness. This has been brought on in part by the internet, which makes it harder and harder for public officials to get away with the shenanigans of the past.

Not saying these things will never happen, with human nature and karma being what it is,these learning experiences will always exist. Planet earth will always be a giant school house of learning and evolving.

Some things never change.

It's time for Parents to get their heads out of the 60's

It’s time for parents to get their heads out of the ’60s

By John Rosemond

 I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for the 1960s to be over and donewith. That destructive decade has ruled American parenting for 40 yearsand pretty well ruined it in the process.

Before the ’60s, parents sought child rearing advice from their elders.

Since then, parents have sought advice from a professional class — whichis to say, people like me. Courtesy of Dr. Joyce Brothers (Spock hadnothing to do with it, really) we so-called “experts” were able toconvince the American parent of a truly absurd proposition: to wit, thata 35-year-old who possesses a graduate degree in child psychology, hasbeen married for five years and has one child, age 2, knows more aboutchildren and how to raise them properly than an 85-year-old woman whonever finished the eighth grade but who raised 10 kids into successfuladulthoods. Like I said, absurd.

I was driving (creeping is more like it) down the 405 in Los Angeles theother day, getting really worked up about all this. Instead of roadrage, which is justifiable in Los Angeles, I was having an attack ofpsychobabble rage. I started thinking about the really dumb things thebabblers began telling parents in the 1960s. Take, for example,”children need to be able to freely express their feelings.” In 1969,when Willie and I became parents, we believed that. It took three yearsfor us to snap out of it, but by then our first child ruled our familywith his habit of freely and loudly expressing his feelings whenever wefailed to obey him.


It took a while, but I finally realized that children should not beallowed to freely express anything. The natural inclination of the childis anti-social, narcissistic. Children believe that what they want,they deserve to have, and because they deserve it, the ends justify themeans. Tyrants believe the same thing. Therefore, children are tyrantsby nature. Give a tyrant/child an inch, and the tyrant/ child willdemand a mile.


Parents show their love for their neighbors by forcing their children tosubdue their “inner bullies” and show respect for the needs of others.And yes, force is required. You cannot talk a child into giving up hisdelusions of grandeur and omnipotence. Once force has succeeded increating a child who will give his parents his undivided attention, thenand only then can his parents teach. Force is the horse that pulls thecart of teaching. And before the child abuse zealots go nuts, allow meto clarify: I ain’t talking about spanking (although I am not completelyeliminating the option, either). The most effective parenting force isapplied calmly, but with steely resolve.


Just as a child should learn that certain behavior is inappropriate tocertain situations, a child should learn that the expression of certainfeelings is inappropriate to certain situations. Children should learnthat it is just plain wrong to get angry when one loses a game, laughwhen someone else trips or cry when one doesn’t get one’s way. Just as achild’s behavior must be disciplined, so must a child’s feelings.


So must a child’s thinking. Children should learn that certain thoughtsare correct and other thoughts are wrong. After all, wrong thinkingleads almost inevitably to wrong behavior. On all three counts —behavior, feelings and thinking — parents need to be unequivocal. Theyneed to make themselves perfectly clear what they expect and what theywill not tolerate.


Yes, American parents need to wake up from the 1960s, take the flowersout of their hair, roll up their shirtsleeves and get back to the workof raising good citizens, defined simply as people who would ratherserve than be served, people with more other-esteem than self-esteem.


Now there’s some change I could really believe in.

One Decision Can Change Your Life Forever

All New Yorkers to Become Organ Donars

All New Yorkers to become organ donors

Another example of big government nosing their way into our personal lives.

Organ donation has become a way to save literally thousands of lives every year. It has become so common place that it has developed a severe shortage of usable organs.

New York State Assemblyman Richard Brodsky has found a way to solve this dilemma. After losing his daughter because of kidney failure he is proposing that every New Yorker be automatically placed in the organ donor pool whereby their organs would automatically be donated upon their death.

I’m sure Mr. B
rodsky’s intentions are noble and having lost a daughter I can surely sympathize with him, however, this Book of the Month approach whereby one has to opt out of the system is not the way to go. Making a choice to donate organs is a serious choice.

Although the DMV might be a good location to have people register,that does imply the decision could be made on the spur of the moment. Bearing this in mind  wouldn’t it be best for the individual to have the ability to opt-in rather than opt out. How many people would be donating organs against their wishes because of oversight or inappropriate motives of a government official?
