A Side Note...

Letting go of something or someone may seem heart-breakingly unbearable... BUT then days go by and you realize what was once for you, simply no longer fits. As more time goes by, the awareness of that thing or person's existence in your life was for a reason, (that it took you this long to get, not a season and certainly not a lifetime, all of the unnecessary turmoil you endured unveils its purpose.

"Through pain and suffering..." Buddhist believe that through pain and suffering you grow you, you succeed. So go through that hard time, let those tears fall, so that you can reach the other side.

I Am that I AM

There are a few quotes, stories, examples... whatever word you want to use, in the Bible that I really like, one of which is God response to Moses... "I AM that I AM" Powerful right? Just writing it makes me shiver. In my uncle's book "Go On!" He gives a thorough explanation of this statment, here is an excerpt;
"The name "I AM THAT I AM" reflects the nearness and availability of God, and that is the fact that it is spoken in what the Hebrews labeled the causative case. In the final analysis, the universe has only two kinds of existence: self-existence and created existence. It is, of course, the former by which God here portrays HImself, and it is not just self-existence but creative existence that is implied as well." - Calvin B. Rock

I am that I am always gave me power to be, simply BE who I AM, because He that lives in Us is greater, am I right?! This simplistically complex statement gives us the right to upfront and personal with Who and What we really are... and be OK with it. Ofcourse our daily journey is to grow and be better then we were yesterday... but you know what I'm saying. :0)

Giving and Receiving

Next week let's GIVE! Give a compliment, a smile, a flower, a kind word. The entire week... let's just give!

"Every relationship is one of give and take. Giving engenders receiving, and receiving engernders giving... In reality, receiving is the same thing as giving, because giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And if you stop the flow of either, you interfere with nature's intelligence." - Deepak Chopra

WOW! We are interfereing with the Universal Law (just like the laws of gravity" when we don't continue the natural flow of giving and receiving. We water does not flow it becomes clogged and stagnate, therefore when we're not in constant movement of GIVE and TAKE we are spoiling our life expereince.

"Give and it will come back to you, good measure press down shaken together and running over"

Never Give Up!

I've been through WORSE and now know that giving up is not an option. I've also realized that what we have in our lives we called in (the law of attraction) however let us not forget who we WERE when we called in those reflections.

Through study, practice and faith we can change who we are into the beakons of light we want to become and truely are.

"Please never turn your back on your faith. Courage is crucial. There is no room for faintheartedness in faith. The timid doom themselves to ridcule from thie partners, from their children from their friends and from the world at large..." - Daisaku Ikeda

Today's thoughts...

Some stuff happened today which I will fill you in on in just a view. But I wanted to share a couple of other thoughts that are tearing at my mind right now:

Firstly, I posted something on my Facebook page which consist of people getting something for FREE and I havn't had much response. Is it because it's about health and fitness? Are people that afraid of working out?

Secondly, is it just me or are people seriously more selfish now then they were before? What I mean by that is, why do people think they can take and take without giving anything?

I went to traffic court today and was told I owe $1004.00 of which I told them I can not and WILL NOT pay that (the ticket was for improper helmet and alternated exhaust on my motorcycle)... the proceeded to tell me my other option is 87 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE AND still have to pay $325.00.... you gotta love this state. Go Arnold and Antonio! You guys are doing a bang up job!
