I am not sure what other people do with their thoughts. I mean the one’s that make you adjust in your seat and know that there is power boiling there.

The potential seed that could grow into some potentially awesome writing, or a gadget the world has never seen before and may never experience if I don’t record it quickly and accurately.  I often get hit with ideas from sources I experience every day and spend my time trying to record them in my almost magical, brightly colored, deep thought notebook.

The Silence is Golden

silence
When you are still you can hear the words the silence has to offer

Is there anything quite as unique as silence? Look at your life and honestly count and evaluate the moments that you are experiencing absolute silence. To me, this is any time that you are completely devoid of any human created sound at all. No words, no machines, no music, no nothing but the natural sounds of the world. How many times during any given day does this happen? I can tell you that for me there are few moments of complete and utter silence in my life. There is a value in the silence, that if you get used to it will allow you to put your mind at rest and allow you to talk with your deeper self who often remains hidden behind the crowd of sounds we experience daily.

Avoid the Negative Noise

Keeping it All Positive

challengesNo matter how confident and successful you are, life has a way of throwing challenges your way that will push you to make decisions every day which redefines who you are.  In everyone’s life, there are going to be events that force a constant expression of this experience.

In the end, even after facing a challenge I like to think that we have become a more galvanized feeling of who we are, and we hold on to beliefs with a more critical and realistic passion.

Look At The Time

Time is On Your Side, Even if it doesn’t Seem It

activities lose track of time

We should all find activities in life that cause us to lose track of time and more importantly to not worry about what you “should” be doing with those precious moments.

 In our daily lives, we are controlled by the clock.  From the time we have to go to work to the time we are allowed to eat and the time we are able to rejoin the freedom of life yet again.  Time can be an all-controlling factor if you let it, but it doesn’t have to be. You can live your life on your own terms and in your own time.

My Shift in Progress

Understand that there are great gifts that come with getting older , we shift into a new understanding.

The recent passing of Dr. Wayne Dyer has led me to contemplate some of the thoughts that he provoked in me that led to my own personal growth. One of Dr. Dyer’s projects was called the Shift. The shift was a movie and a book about finding your true purpose in life and doing the things that truly make you happy. It teaches many wonderful lessons, and the project has a lot of layers. You can watch it more than once and something new will jump out at you each time.  The shift is the natural movement in life that we experience as we age and become more experienced.  We shift in personal empowerment. Here are some of the lessons I learned from this wonderful project.
