Why lie? Is it really worth it? When you tell a lie, no matter how big or small–or to who–the only person you are lying to and hurting is yourself. Truth always has a way of making itself known–always. Be … Continue reading

Mistakes… we have all made mistakes weather they were intentional or not. I am proud of my mistakes because without them, I would not have made it as far as I am today. There were some mistakes I made that … Continue reading

Learning Is Moving Forward.

Learning… we all learn or we do not. We all have a choice to expand our natural capabilities by learning. By learning you are gaining wisdom and knowledge especially from your life experiences. Applying yourself and opening your mind to something bigger than what you already do know is creating new ideas, new skills and much, much more in your life. The result of not being closed-minded; you are opening yourself up to a whole new perspective, a whole new world…a journey that only you will experience. Through learning we are growing, developing and are more self-aware.

Why not try to strive to be more open-minded? Learning can be a forever task, if we allow it to be. Listen to what others around you have to say and question it to help you think extensively. Learn from other people’s success, even their mistakes (as well as your own). Do research on topics you are curious about. Read books. Study Nature. Visit historical sites. Read quotes and poems from scientists/philosophers/psychologists/etc…(especially older ones). Look into history; focus on the facts, figures, experiments correlated to the data to see where it unfolds and plays in your life. It can be a very enjoyable journey and it can also have its surprising times; but within those times will bring you to a whole new you… a Truthful you. You cannot believe everything you read, see and hear, especially in today’s mass media and propaganda such as the television, radio, Internet and other forms of commutative technology or the schooling education systems. When questioning everything, you broaden your mind and challenge yourself which is also teaching you how to learn and bring you on a whole other level of—a Higher Consciousness.

There is a vast Universe out there…. Become knowledgeable, wise and truthful so you can pass it on to others, especially the younger generations who need the guidance. We need to keep the good values and morals going so they do not get lost over time. Compassion, love, trust, honesty, patience, peace… Let’s all come together to help one another learn and live and be the (light) beings we aRe ALL meant to BE. Trust in your heart and your intuition for Truth. By this I mean, when you learn information, FEEL it and whatever comes to your mind first is likely to be what is “right” for you. Be TRUTHFUL and share your Truth with the world…so we can all be on the same collective consciousness to help us make informed choices for our own lives which benefits the people around us as well. Together let’s learn to overcome the fear, hate, anger and the ignorance… and become one and live in harmony.

Keep in mind…sometimes we need to unlearn all that we have already learned. With unlearning, we are creating more space for new knowledge that will serve us in healthier ways … May you have a very happy LIFE-LONG Learning (and UN-learning) journey!!! 🙂

Love, Peace, and Blessings,

Life Is What You Make It…

Life is what you make it or what you do not make it. It is up to you to decide how you want to live your life. We all have choices to experience what we want; it is up to you to decide what encounters you will let into your life and learn from and grow and develop. It is up to you to determine which experiences will make you or break you. When situations arise that are unwanted and unexpected, all you can do is accept it for what it is and move on. Continue on your own path of what YOU choose to do.
Love, Light and Blessings,

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” -Mahatma Gandhi

“Life is 10 percent what you make it, and 90 percent how you take it.” -Irving Berlin

“Look at your past. Your past has determined where you are at this moment. What you do today will determine where you are tomorrow. Are you moving forward or standing still?” -Tom Hopkins
