Glorious Day


Don't "try" to do anything. Do it!
No one ever is defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.
Raise the bar on yourself. Commit yourself.
Your greatest weakness is lack of self-confidence.

Remember that we all come from nature and despite our differences, 
deep down we are all the same.
"If you judge people, you have no time to love them."

 - Mother Teresa
It is wrong to curse a flower and wrong to curse a man. 
It is wrong not to hold any man in honor, and it is wrong to ridicule a man. You must honor yourselves and see within yourselves the spirit of
 eternal vitality. If you do not do this, then you destroy what you touch. 
And you must honor each other individual also, because in him is 
the spark of eternal vitality. When you are violent, then violence returns. When you curse another, you curse yourselves, and the curse returns to you.
"The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances." 
 
- Atisha
Blame, criticism, finding fault, and complaining are all forms of negativity, and all of them bring back nothing but strife.
Negative, distrustful, fearful, or degrading attitudes 
toward anyone work against the self.
Does the attention of flaws become your point of attraction?
Love looks not with the eyes but with the heart.
Let the refining and improving of your own life keep you so busy 
that you have little time to criticize others.

A Great Society

This is the Great Society of which you are so proud? Your “great society” has to be dragged, kicking and screaming, to consider the common good. Whenever common good or collective good is mentioned, everyone yells “communism!” in your society, if providing for the good of the many does not produce a huge profit for someone, the good of the many is more often than not ignored. This is not true only in your country, but also around the world. The basic question facing humankind, therefore, is: Can self-interest ever be replaced by the best interests, the common interest, of humankind? If so, how?
            In the United States you have tried to provide for the common interest, through laws. You have failed miserably. Your nation is the richest, most powerful on Earth, and it has one of the highest infant mortality rates. Why? Because poor people cannot afford quality pre-natal and post-natal care, and your society is profit driven. I cite this as just one example of your miserable failure. The fact that your babies are dying at a higher rate than most other industrialized nations in the world should bother you. It does not. That says volumes about where your priorities are as a society. Other countries provide for the sick, needy, and elderly. You provide for the rich and wealthy, the influential and the well-placed. Eighty-five percent of retired Americans live in poverty. Many of these older Americans, and most people on low income, use the local emergency room as their “family doctor,” seeking medical treatment under only the most dire of circumstances, and receiving virtually no preventive health maintenance care at all. There’s no profit, you see, in people who have little to spend.
America has done much that is observably true. Yet do you know that as a percentage of its gross national product, the United States provides proportionately less for foreign aid than many much smaller countries? The point is that, before you allow yourself to become too self-congratulatory, perhaps you should look at the world around you. For if this is the best you can do for the less fortunate, you all have much to learn.
You live in a wasteful, decadent society. You’ve built into virtually everything you make what your engineers call “planned obsolescence.” Cars cost three times as much and last a third as long. Clothes fall apart after the tenth wearing. You put chemicals in your food so they can stay on the shelf longer, even if it means your stay on the planet is shorter. You support, encourage, and enable sports teams to pay obscene salaries for ridiculous efforts, while teachers and researchers fighting to find a cure for the diseases which kill you go begging for money. You throw away more food each day in your nation’s supermarkets, restaurants, and homes than it would take to feed half the world. Yet this is not an indictment, merely an observation. And not of the United States alone, for the attitudes that sicken the heart are epidemic around the world.
The underprivileged everywhere must grovel and scrimp to merely stay alive, while the few in power protect and increase great hoards of cash, lie on sheets of silk, and each morning twist bathroom fixtures made of gold. And as emaciated children of ribs and skin die in the arms of weeping mothers, their country’s “leaders” engage in political corruptions which keep donated food from reaching starving masses. No one seems to have the power to alter these conditions, yet the truth is, power is not the problem. No one seems to have the will. And thus it will always be, so long as no sees another’s plight as his own. It is a lack of caring.
The entire planet faces a crisis of consciousness. You must decide whether you simply care for each other. You love the members of your own family. You simply have a very limited view of who your family members are. You do not consider yourself part of the human family, and so the problems of the human family are not your own. When we will realize that we are all one?

I am without a doubt one of a kind, special, unique and I love myself.
I’m smart. I’m funny. I’m beautiful. I am me.
I am the greatest thing that will ever happen to myself.
“Day by day, in every way, I am getting better and better.” 

- Emil Coue’
I am good enough now.
There is nothing I have to have, there's nothing I have to do, and there's nothing I have to be, except exactly what I'm being right now.

Decorate Your Space

Guardian Angels:


Love & Romance:

Metaphysical:

Nature:

Choose your environments carefully. The places you go. Environments can be a place of stress. Large busy buildings, back to back traffic, dangerous areas of town, someone's dirty messy house, loud noises. All these things just add stress to the body. Make sure your house, or where ever you are staying is beautiful and relaxing. A place that you want to be, or enjoy coming home to. 
 The way you arrange your house furnishings and your decorations makes a difference.  It should flow easily. Does it feel relaxing and comfortable to you?

 They say clutter is a subconscious stress. Things all around us make us feel confined and not at ease. Even the colors in your space set a mood as well as the pictures on the walls. Make sure everything around you makes you feel good and happy, relaxed and at peace.

I love candles and incense. It sets a calming mood. It sets an atmosphere. I light my candles on a regular basis. In the evenings. Its calm, warm, and relaxing. I also love having plants throughout my house too. They are a beautiful green display of life. Bring life inside your home. Bring nature in your home however you can. Nature has it's own balance. Plants, water, rocks. It brings you back to nature when you look at it. It is good for the soul. 

May your house display your love and your personality. I am really into metaphysical subjects. I love astrology, palm reading, tarot, hand writing analysis, runes, the elements, you name it... I also believe in guardian angels. so I have different themes going on. I also have a romance and love theme. They say its almost like making little shrines or alters for the things that you love and appreciate. So I have angels, love and romance, metaphysical, and nature. These are all objects that I love and appreciate, so when I go into my bedroom I see those things. I am reminded everyday when I see these decorations, and I am grateful when I look upon what I love. Specifically choosing what I appreciate. It is a great way to remind yourself about the joys of life and what makes it so special. Its hard to be in a bad mood when you are surrounded by the things you love. Choose thy love, love thy choice.

Make sure your house is a very special, comfortable, and loving environment for you.What are some of the things that you love and appreciate?

She who works with her hands, her head, and her heart is an artist.
We have the ability to inspire and lead by example.
Turning away from the world and toward your own happiness
 is the path of authenticity.
Fear is the thing that most often holds us back 
from finding or fulfilling our soul’s purpose.
Our only limitations are those that we set up in our minds.
What we do and what we accomplish in life is only
 a small fraction of what is possible for us.
Make a statement with your life.
