What are you gaining?

life quote: all that is gained in life is lost in death“All that is gained in life;
is lost in death.
Share.”

Surviving the Loss:

We gain many things in our time, which are used in our test;
….for all we accrue in a life — we will lose in our death.
Yet much perspective can be gained, as one becomes aware;
That the things we have which survive are the ones we share.

Just Reasoning

Even when there seems to be no reason, there's another reason to pray

“Even when there seems to be no reason..
..it is just one more reason to pray.”

Are you Complaining, Waiting, or Changing?

While you're busy complaining that others don't change; they're busy waiting for you to do the same!

“While you’re busy complaining…
…that others don’t change;
They’re busy waiting…
…for you to do the same.”

A Reflection of Us: 

Every single gesture can change a life;
and a single moment is not made of time.
If one person needs help, then others do too;
World Peace is a decision beginning with you.

Reflection:

Appreciate all that you have;
Be humble for all that you are.
Learn for yourself, not for the class;
And only strive to raise your own bar.

For all that you were & are just now;
Will inevitably, like all things, be struck down.

Ego is the useless residue left behind with all else removed.

A Single Moment, A Lasting Impact – 12/12/12 @ 9:30 PM EST

12/12/2012 - an individual contribution to a lasting change

Many throughout history have alluded to the idea that if a large enough percentage of humanity “wished” for global peace simultaneously, that a lasting change could happen instantaneously.  Skeptics and believers alike have a chance to be a part of a world-wide test of this theory TONIGHT, 12/12/12, at 9:30 PM EST.

A Single Moment, a Lasting Impact; An Individual Contribution to Global Change:

CHALLENGE: take a moment to think about the word “smiling”.

Think about it for a second longer.

NOW, try to think about the word “smiling” without actually physically smiling! If we’re honest with ourselves, one can almost feel the contention between “thinking one thing” and “doing the other”.  That is how the video which introduces this world-wide ‘moment of peace’ begins:

Don’t believe in the power of prayer? How about statistics?

If you are still someone who has a hard time conceptualizing the inter-connectivity of all things, from yourself to the universe, from thought to action to physical manifestation — you are not alone.

As mentioned many times in this blog – at this point in our history, truth and lies are so intertwined in nearly every subject matter that it is hard to fully trust anything.  This is particularly evident as many question the dogma of institutionalized religion. However, when science, spirituality, AND MATH actually converge to support a particular hypothesis – isn’t there some providence to the findings that should not be overlooked?

I have expanded on the “Universe You” concept in a series of articles, so will try not to digress further — BUT — it is important to note that several independent studies have measured the impact of group prayer and meditation, actually showing statistically significant drops in crime rates.

From your own personal experience – haven’t you ever walked into a room, or a party, which you felt, simply put, had a “bad vibe”?  Haven’t you been around people who’d you classify as having a “magnetic personality”?  Prayer, meditation, POSITIVE THOUGHT — after we get past the subtleties which differentiate them, they are really not so different at some juncture.   If you believe that “starting your day on the right foot” leads to an, even ever-so-slightly, increased probability for a “good day” — as opposed to the days when you “wake up on the wrong side of the bed” — then are you sure you really have any reason to be skeptical with “this cause” at all?

If you ARE still skeptical, I do not blame you! After all, I epitomized the word ‘skeptic’ for many years even AFTER being aware of these so-called ‘studies’ — it takes time for an individual to “re-calibrate” their understanding. Look up the information, try to go into it your ‘research’ with an open mind, and discern for yourself.

HOWEVER – I will say, skeptical or not, take a moment at 9:30 PM to contribute a positive thought or two to a world which needs it! Worst case scenario — it certainly cannot hurt!! Best case scenario…. where would I begin and where would I stop?!

Let’s take a moment and see if we can’t surprise ourselves with the results.

I wish you all the best! Now — and at exactly 9:30 PM EST Tonight! 😉

ARE YOU IMPRISONED BY TIME?

Are you a prisoner of time? Free yourself.

We awake to a new day. There are new experiences to be had and new choices to make. It may sound liberating at first. Yet, we begin each morning by believing everything we’ve been trained to see; and there are no better slaves than the ones who are convinced they are free.
