Forgiveness of Self

Forgiveness of self <3 Does not mean condoning actions of another <3 all must take responsibility for there own actions. <3 Love is a most misunderstood word – it is a word of action – pretended by some – felt by many – understood by a few <3 never compromise your integrity for the thoughtless actions of another <3 stand for what you KNOW is right – even if it means to stand alone in 3D – in 5D Legions of Angels stand at your side and thousands of Angels deep behind you <3 Create as little drama as possible – you’re on the stage already <3 hope for a quiet exit <3 so PEACE may be your constant companion – at all times <3 Namaste


“All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness
should be part of our daily lives.”
Dalai Lama

Is the Dalai Lama saying that if we try really hard to be compassionate we can get the prize of being a “spiritual person.”

Or are all the religious traditions on to something more important
than that?

If you’ve read the Gratitude ebook, you know my answer.

I was thinking about this today because I saw a very sad and
disturbing news item. A man who had killed a small boy many
years ago was being considered for release from prison.

The boy’s father was reported to have said that if the man was
released, he would track him down and kill him.

Now the human side of me, as a father, understands that. But I also felt the pain that this man has been carrying for so many years, unable to release it through forgiveness.

I heard Byron Katie tell a person in a workshop, “This happened once 17 years ago. Once! But you have let it happen 10,000 times in your mind.”

When we don’t forgive, we torture ourselves, over and over, reliving the trauma.

When we forgive, we set ourselves free.

Why should we live with love, compassion and forgiveness? To
give ourselves the greatest gift of all, the gift of inner peace.

And as we live with inner peace, we express it in the world and
bring those qualities to all our relationships.

That’s why all major spiritual teachings have that at their core.
Because inner peace leads to outer peace. Love wins.

So who do you need to forgive today? Let go, and let God.

You’ll be glad you did.

memes of the child

“When I was a child I thought like a

child, but when I grew up I put away

childish things.”

Apostle Paul

When we’re looking at the memes

that have been running our lives,

it can help to remember where

they came from.


I found one childhood experience

that was a primary reason that

I played small rather than going

for it.


In my child’s mind I had been

punished for being exceptional,

so my child’s mind decided not

to be exceptional any more.


But as our quote says, our job

as adults is to put away childish

things, especially childish



We can look at our behavior,

listen to our excuses, find the

often childish experience that

started the pattern, and agree

to stop it.


As I’ve mentioned before, EFT

can be a real help with taking

the emotional energy off of an



But you can do a lot yourself

just by making a decision to

change that pattern. Then

notice when the pattern shows

up, and say, “No, thanks.”


You can tell yourself, as an

affirmation – “I no longer need

to hold on to that experience to

be safe, no matter how strong

it used to be.”


Because you don’t. It was your

child’s mind that needed to be

safe. You’re not a child now.


And is it true? No, it’s not.


You can be grateful for that.


Many blessings,

“When everything seems to be

going against you, remember that

the airplane takes off against the

wind, not with it.”

Henry Ford


Every once in a while I need to be

reminded that adversity is NOT a

sign that I’m doing something



It’s a sign that I’m making progress.


We would like to believe that if we

get the formula right, everything

will just fall in place.


Yeah, right! That’s not the way

it works. The bigger the dream,

the bigger the test.


And the bigger the sense of real

accomplishment when you’re



My model for big dreams is the

story of “Lord of the Rings.” An

ordinary person gets an impossible

task to do, and faces fearsome



It’s a classic ‘hero’s journey’

story, but the message is plain.

Big dreams force you to dig deep

for the best you have.


That’s how you grow. At the end

of the 9 hours of fabulous movie

experience in “Rings” none of the

main characters is the same as

they started.


Especially Frodo. And Sam.


Rent the movies and watch them.

See yourself in action. Realize

that like the characters, you have

resources that you haven’t tapped.


You are awesomeness!


You’ll be glad you did.


Many blessings,



You are choosing a direction with everything you are doing <3

“In every single thing you do, you

are choosing a direction. Your life

is a product of choices.”

Dr. Kathleen Hall


My wife was telling me today about

a recent luncheon she had, and how

disappointed she was that the two

other women spent the whole time

complaining about people.


So she won’t go with them again.


Sandy was not judging the other

women as being wrong, she was

just being true to her choice not

to be around negative energy.


Our life is a product of our choices,

and one of the most important

choices is who we associate with.


If we associate with generally upbeat

and positive people, our lives will

reflect that.


If we associate with negative people,

we’ll wonder why we’re always

feeling discouraged and tense.


In my experience, it seems that the

negative people outnumber the

positive ones, so we have to choose



We also have to BE positive and

supportive so they will choose us!


If you’re in a negative environment

at work, it’s better to eat lunch alone

than to subject yourself to an hour of

negative gossip, gloom and doom

just to have company.


What if the negative people are

family? Well, as I’ve heard Bob

Proctor say, just don’t go as often

and don’t stay as long. Take

responsibility for your environment.


You’ll be glad you did.


Many blessings,


My Imagination attracts ….

My Imagination Attracts All Cooperative Relationships… You have the power to evoke from others the relationships that you desire. But you cannot get to a new-and-improved situation by giving your attention to the current situation. The Universe, and all physical and Non-Physical players in it, is responding to the Vibrations that you are offering; and there is no distinction made between the Vibrations that you offer as you observe, and the Vibrations that you offer as you imagine. . . . If you will simply imagine your life as you want it to be, all cooperative components will be summoned. And even more important, all components that are summoned will cooperate. It is Law. The experience that you have with others is about what you evoke from them.

— Abraham

When The Dream Is Big Enough …

“When the dream is big enough,

the facts don’t matter.”

Sam Kalenuik


People like to talk about facts as

if facts were something that never

changed. They use that as an

excuse to not do dramatic things

because the “facts” say they can’t.


But if you’ve lived for very long,

you’ve seen lots of facts change.


When I was in college, it was a

fact that you couldn’t have a

computer in your home, much

less take one to a coffee shop.


Everyone knew that computers

took up a whole room!


When I look around my office,

almost everything I see was an

impossible dream in my youth.


CDs, DVDs, printer/fax/scanner

combinations, smart phone, flat

screen – all of them that at one

earlier time in my life were

impossible, and the facts said



So why do we have them today?

Because for someone, the facts

didn’t matter, and they built them



The USA has a woman Secretary

of State. My state has a woman

Governor. Impossible, they used

to say. Only men in politics. More



But for some women, the facts

didn’t matter either. So there

they are.


Is it easy to be the one to create

new facts? No, not at all. Most

people let the facts rule them.


But if we all did that, we’d still

be living in caves, and you

wouldn’t be reading this now.


Remember this the next time

you think the facts say you can’t

do what you really, really want

to do.


When your dream is big enough,

the facts don’t matter.


Many blessings,
