Making Life Happen

Amazing things happen for some people all the time. I wonder about that. I watch it, wanting to know the secret. Why do amazing things happen for some people consistently? With a stronger sense of curiosity toward this recently, it has been a reminder to what I had already known and experienced. You too probably. Read on and see. I saw the movie Yes Man recently, and true to form, Jim Carrey has me chuckling […]

Nature’s Wisdom – Can Man and Woman Humbly Learn?

Wonderland Originally uploaded by Hans Vink They walked and came to a place where grew a tamarisk tree, and about the tamarisk entwined a vine holding many bunches of grapes. The old maidservant said, “Behold this tree, of what value would it be were it not for the vine? Would it have any value except as firewood? And what of the tree to which it clings, would it not straggle along the ground, laying in […]

Mind Emotional Human Potential: Sink or Grow Rich

The Secret, The Power of Intention, Think and Grow Rich, and a myriad of other top-selling spiritually-minded self-help books send off a vibe that life is easy. Well, they don’t say it directly, however, as an audience we hear all the promises for potential and miss a good number of the steps necessary to get to that state. Let me explain. Earlier in my life, I recognized the hardships, endured, and grew strong. Leading into […]

So What? Turn around and go this way

One way or the other, life goes on, and so do we. And if we don’t? So what! 🙂 Children are wonderful sources of love, life, laughter, joy, and so much more, including inspiration. They’re also a pretty good example of “So What?” One path is closed, take the other. Remember how much of an exciting adventure life was when we were younger? The trick is to recapture that zest and outlook again. I guess […]

Harvesting For the Long Haul | Sales, Service 101

Business trends have always swung extreme-to-extreme in conduct, behaviour, and strategy (or tragedy). Human Capital is always the bottom-line for every transaction and reason for being. Losing sight of this creates all sorts of havoc in social spheres and financial spheres. Examples of short-term thinking losing sight of the long-term impact.

Life | A steep climb

Life can feel like such a steep climb some times. After spending a day with an intriguing personality, I quickly found myself disappointed as they departed taking my change of heart as a personal slight. This over-the-top reaction caused me to ponder the fictional stories I create in my own mind over the actions and decisions made by others. Were my assumptions really true? Most often, no. Stories I make in my own mind are […]

Every day, the bad habits gained through life’s learning cause human beings to intentionally cross that line multiple times throughout a day. Someone who experiences this the violation of respect triggers anger, the negative manifestation of Love articulating boundaries. There is more to this, as this view identifies functioning at higher levels of awareness, and […]

The Art in Being | Empowered Life and Relationships

An Artist has a gift for seeing the common everyday normal events, places, and people as something far more revealing in its’ complexity and simple beauty. For some it is in the drawing and painting, for others it is in the molding and shaping, and so on. The landscape that fascinates me and comes to life on a page is the human experience, society, and our behaviors. What I see never ceases to amaze me. […]
