Since the day we were born – we’ve had the answers to, and the loopholes on, life readily available for us.
They have been bestowed upon us through EVERY generation, and their words tend to transcend both space & time.
The message has always been clear. The message has been delicately carved into cave walls, thoroughly crystalized through parable & poem, and carefully captured through lyricism & music. Not to mention the diligent documentation of the Bible (#1 best-seller, one hundred and four thousand weeks strong, take that New York Times!).
We all want to be happy… right?!
If that was the case, why do so many people with such propensity to be happy…just…seem…to…eventually…self-destruct?
The trick to being happy is NOT to “obtain” happiness! By doing that, we are really putting our happiness in the “obtainment of whatever it is that was obtained”. The REAL secret to securing happiness is to… Continue reading ““How to be Happy” Loophole”
11 years ago marks the date of one of the most tragic events to fall upon American soil.
Many hard-fought debates and questions emerged from the wreckage, “Does the action justify declaration for war?”, “Who is truly responsible?”, “Was it an inside job?”.
The questions are to be expected, but the truth is that, in a life of “cause and effect”, the real conspiracy we were slowly trained to accept is:

Life is more similar to a computer program than many of us tend to think. We make the program what it is, and the program makes us what it is. Surround ourselves with stimulus which pique our interest. We surround ourselves with people which are “of like mind”. We mold them, and they mold us.

Forgiveness is not easy – but it is MUCH easier when first asked for it. Forgiving someone after being asked for it is important – but it still leaves room for personal validation of our egos to say “see, I was right after all, so now that you acknowledge it, okay – I forgive you.”
Help Wanted! If you were hurt long ago in the past, or in a small way today, close your eyes, take a deep breath, breathe out slowly and forgive the individual by name (and/or by face). The world is more connected than we think. There is more power to forgiveness, especially when the individuals ‘know not what they do’.
Few gifts worth giving rival proactive forgiveness — it will make the forgiven, the forgiver, and the world, better.
Traffic… There are few opportunities to exhibit a SIMPLE SELFLESS ACT more timely than on your morning or evening drive! Each individual is likely “rushing to get somewhere” – yet – most of us fail to recognize the fact that everyone else is in the same exact boat!
Help Wanted! When traffic is backed up – and you see someone trying to take a “left turn” onto a busy street – take a moment to let them in if you can. We’ve all had someone go out of their way to do it for us – more often, everyone ignores us – which means we likely tend to ignore them when the shoe is on the other foot.
Let someone in – give a stranger ‘the unexpected’ help that we would not expect but at the same time truly appreciate. Let a stranger take a left turn, and help the world take a turn for the better!
Do we REALLY Only use 10-20% of our Brain?
While there is A LOT of truth to the fact we under-utilize our brain power – I believe this oft talked about ‘concept’ leads most of us to a misguided and/or short-cited conclusion.

The “What is the Meaning of Life?” Loophole
This loophole is not about answering that question – it is about ‘reminding’ myself an others that there are many tools & vehicles that can help facilitate “understanding”. One of few tools we use effectively is language — but there is a higher level of learning, and even more effective too, that predated modern language, and that concept is the foundation for what language was built upon.
The usage of “architypes” has been underutilized for several millennium. We’ve all heard the phrase “A PICTURE SPEAKS A THOUSAND WORDS”. In fact, written language undermines that very important truth. It is more than a “picture of people” (smiles, body language, environment, distance, time, location). There are paintings and pieces of art that seemingly ‘never out date themselves’, that inspire, and mean things to us at a level deeper than we instinctively reflect upon.
