Why Cater to the Valleys?


Throughout our peaks and valleys, we kept calling it our prime;
But all the evolution we saw in writing was really in our eyes.
So I could get better for you today, but it’d make me worse in time;
Since living for other standards would take sacrificing mine.

Why cater to the valleys, when you can wait for them to climb?

Holding on & Letting go

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! 😉

Could the Sweetest Day be a Sour Scam?


All around the world, there are whispers of a holiday being celebrated today…across the United States… in select areas… by a handful of people. Happy Sweetest Day to you all!

Do you know how Sweetest Day originated?  It was FAR from a scam, and it was not intended to be the red-(or pink)-headed step-child of Valentine’s Day that it has become.

Some celebrate, some refuse – but let’s all learn and/or REMEMBER what this holiday and the art of leverage is all about…. Continue reading

The Sleepless Dreamer


while all the sheep are sleeping, the dreamers stay awake;

the herd is worked by the game the dreamers came to play.

the dreamers go from a knight at night, to a daze by day;

swim then sink, they wait to love as sleepers wade in hate.

as the sleepers keep on sleeping, chained in Plato’s cave;

dreamers keep on dreaming ‘cuz it’s only too late to wait.

from white to black: in great dismay, light was made to fade;

but the dreamers find that silverline within the shades of gray.

Pursuit implies an end.  Yet, our “pursuit” does not end in this chapter of our journey until we close both the book and our eyes for the last time. However, there is a VERY simple solution to this VERY real dilemma, friends.
