Your Miracle is Here… You!

In our high tech culture today, where we have the capacity to send emails, create iPhones, build airplanes, harness nuclear and solar energy, we seem to have lost touch with a power far greater. The power of Life. The power of the SOUL. The power of our very own Infinite nature. Up until now MIRACLES have been left to special saints, gurus, and chosen masters. Miracles have become some far out and unusual experience rather than a natural experience in our everyday living. In our scientific world, everything needs to make sense and be logical. We seem to have lost…

Power to the People (YOU!)

Right now in this moment you are experiencing the miracle of life. You may be facing challenges. You may have financial problems, health problems, relationship problems. You may be concerned about natural disasters or the state of the world. Take this moment and let go of all of those concerns. You can come back to these issues and problems later but in this moment just experience the miracle of creation. You are a divine being. You are eternal. The awareness which you are will never die and the joy of creation will always be part of you. No matter what…

Don’t Stress, Do Your Best

The most important thing to me is to always have pride in yourself and be authentic, whatever that means to you personally. If everything else in the world were to go away- the money, the titles, the material possessions- make sure that you can stand behind your name and your decisions. Your name and the way you act are your legacy. If you do something, do it 100%. If you say something, stand behind what you say. Be willing to tell someone the truth that they may not want to hear (if asked and it comes from good intentions). You…

Today Is Your Someday

On our deathbed, it really won't matter how successful we were, how many awards we won or how many deals we closed. We won't regret buying "that house" or "that car" or "that new gadget." We won't long for anything other than more TIME. Time to spend with the special people who touched our lives: our friends, our significant others, our parents, our children. Time to love, to laugh, to hug, to kiss, to cherish, to encourage, to teach lessons, to learn, to pray, to praise, to hold... time for things that no currency could ever buy. Knowing that, as…

#1 Thing in Life? Family

For me, there's more to life than money. For me, it's all about people and relationships and in particular it's about the relationships we have within our own families - with our kids, our partners, and our own parents. Family life is the most important aspect of our true well-being - and so is the really important job of bringing up happy, confident, well-balanced adults - today's children - but tomorrow's future. For all children and for most adults, family life is the most important thing in life. It gives meaning to our lives - as it's a place of…

10 Principles for Taking Charge of Life

1. Forgive. Not as a favor to others or because you're holy, but to set yourself free. As long as you hate or hold a grudge against someone, you are their prisoner. They are in control of your life and you've given them that power. They may be long gone, have forgotten about you, or even be dead, but if they can still make you think of them in anger, you are their prisoner. Forgive and set yourself free. 2. Love and serve others. We don't have to like everyone or agree with what they say or do, but we…

Today’s Brilliance from Michael Bedar

One of the most fun things in life is when we get to take our clothes off, is it not? Another of the most fun things in life is when we get to put clothes on because it means something...is...happening! Life is about stripping bare and building up, in a constant repeating oscillation. Rarely are we in a full monty or a full dress-up in life, right? The trick while in this grey area is to keep the enthusiasm of the pure strip and the high regalia, while walking the normal path of life what EVER that is for you.…

The Time Is Now

Have you ever thought that you somehow missed your turn in life and are not where you are supposed to be? Can you pinpoint that one decision or step that keeps you constantly wondering how to correct your situation or have less stress and more fun? Now is the time to stop looking back and understand that, as creatures of habits, we have the ability to choose and change our situations at any time! We all have been conditioned to believe that winning or losing can be traced to a single play or, in our case, a single action. You…

Today’s Brilliance from Stephen Edwards

As a life-long learner, one of the most important things I can share with you is the power of the simple act of forgiveness. I want to share this piece of "Soultry", because it really brings the act of forgiveness to life. For Ever and Ever Sometimes it's hard to take things in your stride,  To turn the other cheek, look away, and swallow your pride. But some people strike out in their anger and pain.  And we must forgive them, again and again. Try to understand, that although it's not okay It's not your job to make them pay.…

4 Essential Strategies for Changing Your Life

Be grateful. Gratitude unlocks the doors to your heart and opens your world up in ways previously unimaginable. Gratitude is the stage and the players are joy, peace, love, acceptance, belonging, and compassion. Make time to be grateful and happiness will be your reward. When you find yourself spiraling into thoughts and attitudes of scarcity, stop yourself and think of what you have to be grateful for. Stop spending time wishing things were different and focus on the good things in your life, at this very moment. It is no secret that where our thoughts go our lives go as…

Mind Your Stories

Mind your stories.   Mind your stories; question them often. Nourish those that serve.   Change those that do not. Far easier said than done, yes? For many of our darker stories have cut grooves in the primordial stone of our psyches- and the river of mind all too easily turns back into these dark and shadowy valleys. So mind also your story about changing your story; be quick to forgive both yourself and your world should the story be slow to change.   Mind your stories; know them for what they are. For more than it is through your…

Want to Find God? Meditate

Given 30 seconds to say what is most important in life, it'd be simple: give yourself to God. God gets a mixed review, obviously a favorable spin from religious or spiritual types, but still one with vague undertones of uncertainty. The advice I gave sounds good but what does it really mean, why is it important, and how should one go about doing it? Let's cut to the chase. Life on earth isn't easy. Even when wealthy or healthy, people may be miserable. With no way to know what'll happen one minute to the next, control and security are illusory.…

Today’s Brilliance from Jeffery Straker

I'm a singer-songwriter-pianist touring about 100 shows a year. In my 'former life' though, I worked for a big marketing company. It was a good job, but when I listened to my heart, it wasn't quite fulfilled. I was a trained musician and realized I really wanted to pursue music as a career but the switch seemed overwhelming. I'd been performing some of my songs at open-mic nights as a hobbyist for a few years 'dreaming' of a full time music career when I was slapped in the face by a big dose of reality. I visited a great aunt…

Today’s Brilliance from Craig Handley

My advice to help you today is to share with you a truth that you need to "buy into" in order to reach your dreams. Success is something that happens by turning a wheel a little bit at a time. To turn the wheel you need strong people and smart people, night owls and early birds, starters and finishers... all working together. I'm a great networker. I am not great at working out all the detail after detail needed sometimes to get a great idea executed. I had to find my polar opposite in order to be successful. You will…

The Path You Need to Live in the Flow

Look at the shining sun, listen to the singing water, feel the unpredictable wind. Are those ever completely still? Not really. They are in fact always in movement, always flowing. Anything that is alive is always moving and changing. And so are you. Whatever your circumstances are, they are already changing, right now. And in what direction? That depends entirely on you. Every single thought that crosses your mind, every single action you take is the foundation of who you will be right around the corner. That's why, whatever you are feeling today, remember that you are already becoming somebody…

More Brilliance from Charlene Potterbaum

I would share the same words I shared with a young mother whose lament sounded the same as mine when I was in the business of raising my six wonderful kids. I remember well having some of the same feelings she expressed--overwhelmed, overburdened, wondering if having made the decision to be a "stay at home Mommy" might have been a wrong decision after all! I told her that there was no older woman for me who could help get me back on track, so God did it for me. I was cleaning out the little boy's room, turning yucky socks…

15 Reminders for Facing Adversity

Two things can happen when your world turns upside down with tragedy, such as blindness or the murder of your child. Either your life becomes a mess or you reach deep within. Choose the latter and, through the power of God at work, you become the messenger of the greatness that is yours to share. And while sharing, there's a secret to live the abundance of life, to relish in the richness of each day and to delight in success and triumph. And that triumph isn't in a book or hidden in mysteries untold, or even in philosophies to ponder…

Why You Need To Take Time For You

Everybody needs some time to shine, time to be recognized, special, admired. It's not selfish: it's human. Early one Saturday I saw in the local paper that a workshop for blues musicians was scheduled for that very morning. I showed the notice to my husband, who intends to be the world's next great blues harmonica player. "I'd like to go, "he said, "but I promised I would paint your office." I assured him that the office could wait and sent him off with my blessing. He thought I was being selfless and wonderful, but I really wasn't. You see, I'd…

10 Lessons You Need to Know

One of my favorite quotations about life's teachings comes from Thomas Carlyle, who said "Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood." So, here's what I've come to know: 1) Take care of yourself as best you can. Daily exercise, relaxation and nutrition are vital for optimal performance in every area of life. Do your best and don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it. 2) Love is what makes life worth living. I believe learning to love is the most important skill we can develop in our lives, and yes I…

6 Steps To Release Tension and Start Healing

Often people get sick because they stress, push and abuse themselves. Most people are not taught how to love themselves. In fact, they are taught that to listen, care for and honor themselves is selfish. Many people spend their time trying to please others and eventually hurt themselves, which causes resentment, stress and sickness. Often, until you really get angry, discover the cause of your sickness and let it go, you cannot heal. That is exactly what happened in my case, I got angry because nobody could help me and then I discovered that I had the power to tune…

The 4 Hurdles You Must Jump in Life

There are four hurdles we must jump in life and until we do, we will not become all we are meant to be. Initially the hurdles diminish our confidence and self-esteem, but this is an illusion as they are a part of the way-the journey of heroes, inventors, and legendary entrepreneurs. They exist to help us fulfill our highest and greatest purpose. The first hurdle is overcoming all the naysayers, the people who tell us our dreams are silly, we're not smart enough, rich enough or strong enough, but we must be strong and follow our heart. If we ignore…
