transform your life!

Our cells have memory. They are living things carrying information from our ancestors. This helps make the human family what it is. That is beautiful.

But, what about when our cells are carrying around stuff we need to release? Well, we can change our DNA with words and thoughts.

Yes, we can.

A book that helped me tremendously along this line is The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton. I highly recommend it for those of us truly committed to improving ourselves and the world.

This poem is titled “Passion for Solitude”. It was written by Italian poet Cesare Pavese and this translation was performed by Geoffrey Brock.

When we have trouble finding inspiration among our own communities, it may be best to go roaming around a different culture, a different part of the world. We are all here to motivate and love one another. Let’s not let that honor go untapped.

I’m eating a little supper by the bright window.
The room’s already dark, the sky’s starting to turn.
Outside my door, the quiet roads lead,
after a short walk, to open fields.
I’m eating, watching the sky—who knows
how many women are eating now. My body is calm:
labor dulls all the senses, and dulls women too.

Outside, after supper, the stars will come out to touch
the wide plain of the earth. The stars are alive,
but not worth these cherries, which I’m eating alone.
I look at the sky, know that lights already are shining
among rust-red roofs, noises of people beneath them.
A gulp of my drink, and my body can taste the life
of plants and of rivers. It feels detached from things.
A small dose of silence suffices, and everything’s still,
in its true place, just like my body is still.

All things become islands before my senses,
which accept them as a matter of course: a murmur of silence.
All things in this darkness—I can know all of them,
just as I know that blood flows in my veins.
The plain is a great flowing of water through plants,
a supper of all things. Each plant, and each stone,
lives motionlessly. I hear my food feeding my veins
with each living thing that this plain provides.

The night doesn’t matter. The square patch of sky
whispers all the loud noises to me, and a small star
struggles in emptiness, far from all foods,
from all houses, alien. It isn’t enough for itself,
it needs too many companions. Here in the dark, alone,
my body is calm, it feels it’s in charge.

love in all forms

The energy that comes with a crush is so powerful.

It’s the same kind of energy that is present when we have an invigorating idea.

Endorphins are released, making us feel happier and more resistant to dis-ease.

Passion = Love = Joy

Explore a new something and see where it takes you.

yes!

yes!

Life is full of opportunities. Full of them!

Find the opportunities for “yes”.

Find the opportunities for “yes!”

Find the opportunities for “YES!” and take them.

Take them all.

White Buffalo Calf Woman says

Friend, do it this way…
that is, whatever you do in life,
do the very best you can
with both your heart and mind.

And if you do it that way,
the Power Of The Universe
will come to your assistance,
if your heart and mind are in Unity.

When one sits in the Hoop Of The People,
one must be responsible, because
All of Creation is related.
And the hurt of one is the hurt of all.
And the honor of one is the honor of all.
And whatever we do affects everything in the universe.

If you do it that way…

that is, if you truly join your heart and mind
as One…whatever you ask for,
that’s the Way It’s Going To Be.

(Lakota instructions for Life)

never give up

Passion is real. Passion is important.

Believe in yourself. There is only one you and you are here for an important reason.

If

This old poem by Rudyard Kipling is still rather applicable today. And, don’t be put off by the “my son”. Daughters can heed this wonderful advice, as well.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

you want success?

This man reminds us of a few things:

1. To achieve success, we must be willing to be uncomfortable.

2. To achieve success, we must be fully engaged in what we love.

3. To achieve success, we must be motivated by something other than money.

4. We *can* be successful.
