Want to Be Richer than Bill Gates?

What's true wealth? Is it gold that glitters under the sun? Or is it wealth that no one and nothing, not even death, can take away from you? Let's consider material wealth for a moment. We can have everything we want in life: huge mansions, fancy cars, ever-expanding wardrobes, and a sailboat or two to boot--but should our lives be measured by monetary values? Is the worth of our lives so calculable that we can consider ourselves wealthy simply by adding up our material possessions? Even if we feel wealthy by owning great possessions, what good would such wealth do…

Today’s Brilliance from Michael Levy

Many folks fish with a big hook of memories that have a reference point not of their choosing. Before they could assemble their fishing tackle of thoughts, a whole bunch of people came into their fishing grounds when they were born and indoctrinated them. They gave them a large variety of negative bated thoughts and educated them to net in toxic thoughts into the memory banks. If we tried to let the catch of toxic thought free, to swim away from our minds, they constantly maintained that it is wrong to free doom and gloom. They told us that we…

The Fine Line of Truth

There is a biblical passage that says..."Straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads unto life and few there be who find it." It causes a person (or it should) to seriously think about its deep and rich meaning, and the wonderful effect that it can have for you. Truth is truth regardless of facts and it's important to know, that the facts are always changing. We have been taught to live our lives based on facts without realizing that facts are only facts until we become aware of another fact that supersedes the previous. Because we are…

The Wisdom of 7 Decades

I'd share the deepest things I have learned in these seven decades. I would tell you that saying "I made a mistake" feels really awful, yet calling it a "learning experience" feels uplifting and growth-producing. I would suggest that "doing work" feels like drudgery, but "having a project" fires up enthusiasm. I would remind you to take control of your thinking, because if you "think" right, you will "do" right, and if you "do" right, you will "feel" right. And "feeling" right, or good about yourself, feels a lot better than feeling bad about yourself. Remember, you always have a…

Choose Wisely… Your Thoughts Create Your Reality!

The original Star Trek series had a memorable episode in which the Enterprise visited a planet that allowed anything a person thought of to manifest. The planet was supposed to be used for entertainment purposes, but the unsuspecting Enterprise crew didn't know their thoughts were creating their reality -- and so suffered accordingly. What a perfect metaphor for our world! Human beings are creators and this world is our medium. We were created to create and we do so all the time, whether we are aware of it or not. There's an old saying, "Our creativity is our gift from God, and…

Dedicate Your Life to Service

Many years ago in meditation, I received the following message. This message has been a guiding light in my life ever since. Dedicating my life to service has brought so much passion, joy, and fulfillment to my life that I would like to share these words with you now. May they spark that divine flame within you, as they did in me. Blessings to you! "It is not life experience that teaches a baby to laugh. She is born with a spark of God, and that part of her remains intact. She is whole in her totality, though God is…

Remembering We Are The Children of Love

You and Life are One. The living, breathing Source of all Life, that most call God, Allah, Great Spirit, etc., is the same Love from which we are born. We mistake our identities as individuals when we forget who we are and where we come from. That light and life lives in each of us, yet is often covered over by the mind. However, even your mind and your thoughts are that Love, yet packaged in the experience of disconnection. How about you? Are you experiencing disconnection from your true self? If you are, here is one easy way to…
