Exploring Thought

What happens to a mind that gets lost? Awareness and the ability to process daily the numerous details of life whittles away into the sawdust. A blankness envelopes the mind in a subtle sense of confusion, numb to something undefinable. At times, a questioning energy surrounds the cloud looking for a way in or out, wondering what has happened to the real me. Nothing happens though. Days, weeks, months slip by, while a new seeking […]

Overcoming Challenges: Being vs State of Being

Most people overwhelmed by and completely identifying with a condition applied to their particular health issue might actually be able to overcome their challenge through exercising their mind. With a focused effort upon creating change within the mind and the thoughts that arise, the effects of the mind upon one’s emotions can evolve. As emotions affect chemical production of the mind, becoming aware and engaged in changing thoughts can also affect the feelings generated by […]

Mental Illness: Is it Mind over Matter?

Please note, this post is not recommending people do not seek proper medical advice, nor stop their medications without first consulting their supervising physician. In many respects, mental illness can be overcome with a concerted effort that applies the mind to the task of creating change. The problem for most is they feel overwhelmed by and completely identify with whatever condition has been applied to their particular problem. Does this mean you’ve been diagnosed incorrectly? […]

You Don’t Have the Right to Defend Yourself

What would you say to someone who said you do not have any right to defend yourself? Understand this is in relationship to a conversation, an exchange of words and thoughts, not fists and guns. You don’t have the right to defend yourself. What does that mean? Every individual has the right to self determination, for self-expression, and most certainly the right to speak on one’s own behalf. Now get up and speak. Get out […]

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 […]

How?

There are times when so much change is underway that the forces can be felt pushing from all sides. Weathering this pressure isn’t the real difficulty – performing is. The mind’s ability to think clearly with focus becomes obscured. At least, this is my experience. Regrettably, without knowing this and remembering too, this becomes stressful and adds to the crisis. So when it is happening, do your best and go easier on yourself. The change […]

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 […]

Random Conversations Today | Empowerment

Lee says, “Our mind is the biggest obstacle to living our life to the fullest.” Life is just one crazy adventure. Control what fires up inside, respond positively, remain always “at choice” and you are truly free. You are not bound to anyone. Pick and choose, have fun, no apologies. Human being Human. Love. When one door closes, another one opens. This irritating metaphor is more true than I ever realized. Often I’d panic when […]

Illness of the Body

Nobody likes to be sick. Runny noses, aching muscles, bones, and organs, sneezing, coughing, headaches, shivers, chills, fevers, and other unmentionable symptoms wrack the body, and suck the energy right out of the body. This is exactly where I have found myself the last few days with an overwhelming force. Prior to that I struggled for a week and a half to fight off what I thought might be a cold, recognized by the sore […]

Human Spirit Being Call for God

From the Archives July 2005 You are a spiritual being. You recognize something in you that is greater than the experience you may be living. Trust that part of who you are. Our difficulty in our society is due to all the conditioning we have had through education and culture that places so much emphasis on our mind and denying our emotions. You have not been properly taught about your true spiritual nature and that […]
