Looking for something?

People tend to find cures, love, fame, success, by accident.  Your car breaks down and someone stops to help you, suddenly you’ve met the love of your life.  You find a rock, keep it as a pet, the idea to sales. you makes millions, food is left out and Penicillin is discovered and saves millions of lives. Many of our most important discoveries were found accidentally. Discoveries just presented themselves, and the person that discovered it was just present enough to notice it. Be in the now be present and see what you … notice.

At First Sight

At First Sight

Like the infant using a past experience might turn into that small child stomping their feet demanding their parents to give them what they want.

With the ego saying  “yes I need help here, how dare you not give me what I need’. ‘I can’t do this on my own” and the parent’s ego agrees, “yes I should do everything for this child, This child is my child, different from, your child”. And the ego is pasted down like a bad gene.

We start to compare our parenting skills to our own parents; ” My parents didn’t ever help me, I had it tough,  if my parents had stayed together, if my parents loved me.”, And your ego tells you yes’,” I’m a better parent then my parents were”.  Most of us were un- taught to be present held captive by our parents, brain washed and given an ego.  and some may never get back to presence, until they are close to death. They say that most kids by age 8 have already developed the ego,and lost their awareness of the now, they no longer look at the world the same; they may start to judge, and label. They start to develop their stories; “I shouldn’t be treated like this, she’s is ugly, I am ugly, I need, I don’t have, I want, they don’t like me, I am this way because…. , I have a right!… I have an illness, my parents are divorced,  it’s my teachers fault, I am better then you”.

We came in this world with presences and will leave with presences.

Imagine seeing life with such presence, it’s like seeing everything for the first time but with, the practical knowledge needed to faction. Being focused makes people feel alive; it brings them peace, everything starts to align in their life. It’s almost magic. We suddenly know what to do, where to go, and life start to line up for you. Without focus without being conscious, we never fully become ourselves. The Bible says an eye for an eye, what you put out, you get back, negative energy out, negative results back. Thinking is energy. positive  thinking leads to positive results, but above thinking is a place where awareness lives , it’s like an open socket, that’s who we are, a place where the  false self/ ego  cannot survive. This is the place where we find peace and comfort. this place is presence. This place we are born with but may lose sight of .

Be Successful

How being… success works

 
First the thought is born, the idea.
Then you need to have an intention of that idea. And this is the most important ! ask yourself what do I want from this thought this idea …there is nothing wrong with wanting to make money, but if your intentions are to only make money you will never be happy and I will tell you why.
 Ask yourself  why do I want money ? do I need something right now in this moment. … you may say yes! I need to pay the rent… I need to feed my kids… I need to keep the utilities on …
However you can’t eat! money.
You may have money and not pay the rent. Many people spend their money on gambling, smoking, drinking. what do you  really want ? Happiness?
  Success is something that happens, it has no limits , no size, it has no preference good or evil anyone can obtain it.  It can cause happiness, fame, depression, sadness ect..

A child can be successful at crawling or a millionaire at making another million .
Our thinking is energy and the universe is very obedient to conform that energy into what we call our reality. So pay close attention to your thoughts.
  Re-think your intention and ask your self again, what is my intention of doing this? Of wanting this thought? Because believe it or not You! are in control of your thoughts, You! choose them no one else. And if you have the right thoughts, the right thinking. the right intentions …MAGIC does seem to happen.
Bill Gates,  Mother Teresa, Oprah Winfrey, , along with many others have something in common:   Is it just good luck? Does it make sense that a little black girl growing up in times of such prejudice, not only for  African-Americans, but also for women in general. And yet she becomes one of the riches women in  the country  . Bill gates A College dropout builds a multimillion dollar company.  Mother Teresa is known and loved around the world and even receives the 1979  Nobel Peace Prize. Do you  think  that it is luck? Or is what they have in common, something else? Perhaps its the way they  don’t think. The odds were against all of these people …but their thoughts their attitude toward life were the same.
 Take a moment and  imagine any one of these people throwing a fit in traffic, yelling about how  life is treating them  unfairly, or dwelling on their horrible childhood, do you  think they would have got where they have in life? Can you imagine anyone of these people having  a negative personality? do you believe that anyone of their intentions were just to make  money, or to  become famous?
 They  simply had a passion!  their intentions were to give, to make a difference to create.
   You don’t have to imagine it
 I’ve heard Oprah say she  never thought her talk show would be so successful, she didn’t have to even  imagine it and yet it still happen. She had a passion and it was to help people.  I would imagine the money and fame were just a bonus, the real  reward is fulfilling the intentions of giving… making a difference.. emanating their passion with  gratitude, acceptance, and presences. The universe did the rest.
That magic universe that excludes no one .
You may say… yes ” But I don’t have any time for that”
 
We may think that important people must have golden minutes in the day that somehow they spend their day differently .. somehow their moments! in the day are magic moment and each moment is spent doing magical things, things that are only meant for special people with special thinking powers.
No! the president or even the Pope have the same minutes in the day as you.  the same space to work  the same 24 hours.  The only thing that makes us different is how we choose to believe. you may say well he has power, money , ect….
   When you take away the idea that power, money, material things, have true meaning! We are left with people all standing there in the same space.
What is left of this person without power? money? or material things? what are you! without power? money? or material things.?
If we have an earthquake you may have a smaller or larger pile of rubble then the next guy,  Your house may be gone but the space still remains.
Never think your intentions are to big or to small
We are born in different forms. different DNA, but still in the same world.

If you are born without a voice doesn’t mean you can’t make a beautiful sound, it doesn’t mean you can’t be heard,,, Just because you were  born without arms doesn’t mean you can’t create beautiful art .. being born without eyes doesn’t mean you have no vision.
    Remember a time you felt successful at something. No matter how small.  The journey through the process of success is the same . The universe doesn’t recognize big or small success.
First what is something you think is a success.. a BIG! success? maybe curing a disease, writing a famous song , creating a piece of art , writing a best seller.
What does it mean to you
You might be surprised to know, that your idea of success could be very different from the next person , for example a person that just wrote a great novel , may believe success is having a relationship having a family. And with that thinking… may feel like a failure. The only thing different about people who is really no different ! Because we all do it…is having different thoughts. We have different ideas. and those different thoughts, different ideas ..may have different meaning to us.
My mom always said watch your pennies and your dollar will take care of themselves.
 I say watch your intentions and life will take care of it self .
What are your intentions ?

Life Is A Paradox

Life is a paradox, you sometimes need to be blind to see, to live is to know death, to be in control of your life is to let life be as it is, to win the fight is to surrender, to listen so carefully, so intentional, you can feel the sound, that! is to truly hear. When you let life flow… you let amazing things happen, Life has no social status, anyone can see the sound, and anyone can find the question to the answer, complicated but is so simple.

 Life struggles are easy without ego

Have you ever watched an infant, lying on the floor, rocking, wiggling using every muscle in their body just to move two inches to a toy,. We believe life is hard we don’t want to see them struggle. But if we take a close look we notice that the first time you seen them struggling toward a toy you moved the toy a little closer .This may be the beginning of the ego, The ego us parents start to develop in our children, that ego that later YELLS AND STOMPS THIER FEET “Hey! …How dare them! Not give me what I reach for.” It’s only after we interfere with life, after moving the toy toward them, that they learn frustration; without inference they simply wiggle make grunting sounds, smile, and possibly fall asleep.

The child feels they have all the time in the world they have no concerns of how long it takes to get the toy they are not trying to race the child next store.

They have no expectation of what the toy is. they’re simply enjoying the journey  with the passion to move. When they finely reach their toy they are grateful.

When our children are born, we need to do everything for them, feed them, change them, burp them. Teaching them everything . However Its our own thinking, passed down from generation to generation. So we assume reaching for that toy must be frustrating, They must be in a hurry Right!? I mean who would want to be here! when they can be there!?.

God said I made you in my image

Perhaps we have had a few toys pushed towards us. Maybe those toys have turned in to cars, houses, relationships, Perhaps our own ego wants to say’ life How dare you not give me what I reach for’. And we cry and stomp our feet with frustration.   that’s the ego… that voice in the head… the voice that says “life! owes me this”.

The things we achieve without ego are the only things that will make us truly happy.

When we learn that… and that is a hard one to learn, we will learn true gratitude, appreciation for life, and with that gratitude and appreciation we long to give, and with longing  to give we can learn to receive with grace.

Knowing… we’ll always have enough,  No fear of abandonment, frustration, no worry of losing.

Tomorrow never comes… when you wake up its going to still be today! enjoy the journey and easy task of wiggling, making some grunting sounds, and smiling .
