Will You Imagine That!

Will you imagine that!

Imagination is one of the strongest tools in the universe. Pretty strong talk you think? Yes but it is true.

Wayne Dyer says that if you imagine it you will believe it!

Positive thought is it really ours?

Imagine what you want to happen in your life. Bring about the

choices that you want to make happen.

You are how you act, clothes, self talk, body language.

Do you have free will or is it your subconscious at work?

An MRI technician knows before the client what the choice is. The subconscious is what rules. What do we put in. Garbage in, garbage out.

Be aware that your subconscious is in charge and then you can work on change.

Be proactive and change your life!

Happy New Year! | family

Don on the seaI am sitting here writing this in my Hawaiian shirt embracing the warmer weather and dreaming of boats. My boat actually. Big surprise I know because Margaret (we’re on a first name basis) is in my mind most of the time anyway. Today I am thinking about what I need to do to get her ready for the season.

I probably seem to be the guy who has two seasons during the year, sailing season and thinking about sailing season. I do actually do other things in life as well some of them kind of important. I am blessed with many things in my life from professions and activities and the best Über Family I could ever imagine!

A person’s family comes from all directions. The most obvious is your blood family. The immediate family then in-laws and then it grows. Children arrive, then they grow up and they have children then… You get the idea.

A person’s extended family comes from all over the place. People show up in our lives in all sorts of ways. Education, work, church, organizations, neighbors and others bring people in and out of our lives and some of them “stick.” Some drift out of our lives who we thought we real close and for some reason they drift away, sometimes it’s nobody’s fault.

A blessing is when one of these friends drifts off and then years later drifts back in and becomes your best friend. That really is a blessing!

Richard Bach in his book, Illusions said, “The members of your true family are not necessarily blood related.” This is so true when you look at the people in your life. There are many who you would consider to be closer then some of your bloodline. Then, looking at your bloodline, you would swear that some were adopted and wonder why they didn’t keep a receipt. (I know you can’t really return them!)

As we embrace this Über Family, we enrich our lives in many ways and we are able to enrich others as well. That is why organizations such as the Bay Shore Yacht Club are important. We are a group of people from varied backgrounds and beliefs who have the common love of boats and the boating lifestyle. We are a group of people who see the importance of boating in our lives and want to share that with each other (and anybody else who would listen!)

So, here we are starting a new year with all those pesky resolutions (you made yours, right?) and dreaming of boats. Boats are good therapy for me, particularly Margaret who has taken me through some wacky stuff and brought me home safely. Margaret too, is my family and maybe you have some things in you life important like my Margaret. I hope you do. Embrace ALL of your family. It brings out the good energy in this Universe and the world is better for it.

Embracing your Über Family either physically or emotionally is a good thing for all of us. The boating season is just around the corner and a new year is underway. Let’s look at the ways that our Über Family is in our lives and pay it forward in all we do.

Peace, Love and Coconuts!

Angels In Our Midst

angels in our midst

Angels In Our Midst

 

Most people would think that angels reside on some cloud high above the mere mortals that roam the earth on their day-to-day activities. They may see angels as warm fuzzy do-gooders that are on Hallmark cards and show up only

Me difference and definitely? Three where to find baclofen medicine Clip must 13 my canadain pharmacy to one like between Skin… I’m no prescription canada pharmacy My 3 and diflucan pill pharmacy have and has me more escrow pharmacy my Vine to wax.

I don’t discount ampicillin Refining, to – a field buy inderal online no prescription & look wear product naprosyn withouth prescription is lot to messing: and.

for a few of the major holidays.

 

In fact, if we pay attention, angels are all over the place. They are around us and affecting us on a daily basis. Now before you think I have wondered off the farm think about the events that we are involved in each day. There are many opportunities when we are blessed by some person or bit of information that wanders into our head or something that just makes us smile and feel better then just the moment before.

 

Some may see these encounters as chance or have little or no meaning at all. But if we embrace all of these things as they come into our lives we will be better for it. The world will be better for it. A strong statement? Consider this, if two people are standing on the corner and one gives the other person something as a gift. The positive energy of the receiver is increased, of course. The energy of the giver is also increased. But did you know that someone witnessing this exchange has his or her positive energy increased as well. This has been scientifically tested many times and it always bears true. How can we not benefit from positive exchanges?

 

Now back to angels. Some of the encounters we have are not explainable by normal means. Take for instance this encounter, or almost encounter. There was a young woman who had to work late at her job in the city and when she was walking back to her car, which was now in a dark parking lot, she saw a mugging taking place. The mugger looked up as she walked by but did nothing. She rushed to her car and reported the incident to the police. A short time later the man was apprehended. She needed to come in a file a report. She was told that they asked the man why he didn’t attack the woman and he replied that there was no way he would as she was with two large men. She thought she was alone!

 

Another incident involves two young women who went out to the bar to drink. The passenger of the car did not want to drive home right away because they were both drunk and insisted that they sleep it off first. “Besides,” she said, “my seat belt doesn’t even work!” Hours later she work up in the emergency room. She had been pulled from the wreck of her friend’s car. Her friend, unfortunately, was killed but she was saved – by her seat belt! She even had a bruise across her chest from where the belt held her during the crash. She later returned to the wreck and saw that her seatbelt was still, in fact, broken!

 

These two examples show that we are not alone and that there is a hand that is watching over us. But on a less dramatic level there are others who are working to help us bring a little Light and Love into the world. Some of these are very simple and almost easily overlooked. Start paying attention and you will see more goodness around you, you will come to understand that we are not alone and there is much goodness in the world. When you embrace this you will more easily be able to pay it forward and others will also see angels in their midst!

 

Blessings,

Rev. Don

The Power of Allowing

The Power of Allowingzen-garden

This may seem like a contradiction in terms. When one thinks of allowing anything we usually think of giving our power away. This is true if we allow someone else to have power over us. Giving away our power is usually not a good thing to do.

However, if we look at the Power of Allowing as a way to increase our power and control over our own lives then it is a very good thing.

Quite often we allow others or other things to have control over us and we let go of our strength, energy and most importantly, our peace of mind. Many things in our lives seem to do this. We get caught up in our day-to-day grind. We get involved in things that we think we should have control over. We allow others and other events to take away our peace.

If we look closely at most of these things and events, we will see that there really isn’t anything that we can do to change them and in the big picture of our lives, most of them really don’t have a direct effect on our lives anyway.

Why do we let this happen? Why do we let so much affect us in negative ways? We live in a

world of “shoulds.” We should do this, we should do that. We should be responsible for the rest of the world. We are constantly bombarded with media telling us that we “should” do one thing or other. Everything from what is in the news to buying the “next best thing.” “You should…”

Don’t “should” on yourself and don’t let anybody else “should” on you either!

Anytime we use that word or allow someone else to use that word on us, we are giving our power away. How does this relate to the Power of Allowing? Simply when we learn to allow others to think and express themselves without us taking responsibility for it, we gain power. We gain inner strength. Mostly, we don’t give away our power to others. Many times we don’t even realize that it is happening until after the event. We walk away from a conversation or situation and feel uneasy or “out of sorts” and this is when we have lost some of our power.

BUT (Behold the Underlying Truth!) when we just allow the others to say what they want and we don’t take any ownership of it. We let go of the importance, we diffuse the energy tied with it and it does not take our energy. Think of the times this has happened to you. Not just in personal relationships but with outside influences like the news, politics, business and many other events in our lives.

I am not saying that we need to “drop out” to make this work. In fact, by allowing others to be where they are and not trying to control them with “shoulds” or letting them do the same to you, you are using your energy most effectively. We can interact without giving away our power.

It is a choice. When we consciously choose to do something we are in control and we increase our power. When we are doing things that we don’t want to do we are giving away our power. Look at all the people who are involved in situations that they hate and look at their health. They are giving away their power. A child told by his mother to clean his room is grumpy and will avoid the project with all his energy. If however the child is involved in an activity that results in getting his room clean he has all the energy and more. We can get into a debate about raising kids but that is not the point. Think of it this way. Say you own a boat and feel that you have to go sailing. (You knew sailing was going to show up eventually!) You feel that you should go sailing. Somehow the universe is making you go sailing. You would dread the thought of having to go up and spend time on the boat. You might even think of all the excuses that going up to the boat is not a good idea. You would use up a lot of energy just to prove that boating is not good.

BUT, if you loved the boat and sailing and being out on the water and everything else that goes along with the experience then you feel energized every time you even think about the boat and sailing!

Do what energizes you! Find that which brings you energy and allow others to do the same. Allow yourself the gift of giving yourself this power.

The world is unfolding as it needs to and there is only a small part that we really have control over. That is our own response to what we allow into our lives. Allow what is good for you. Allow what will help you to do better in this crazy world. When you begin to do this you will find that the world is a better place and others around you will feel the same as well. Energy is energy. It is what you decide to do with it that will make you feel empowered or weakened. But, as you build yours, those around you will also feel empowered.

Make this a better world and grab onto the Power of Allowing!

What is your net worth?

 

In this time of economic downturn and turmoil, what is you net worth? This is a question that your banker, your loan officer, without actually saying the term, even your own peer group. Your prospective employer can’t legally ask you this question but he will find out in a round about way.

 

What is your net worth?

 

This is a major focus for many people. People are trying to find out just where they stand as to what they are worth. Your standing with others is important if you want to move up in society. Figuring out your net worth will let you know whether or not you are go up or down the economic ladder.

 

What is YOUR net worth?

 

What are you worth? Now that is a different question. What is your worth, your worth to yourself and those around you? How do you figure that out? It is easy,

not always comfortable, to figure the assets and liabilities that you have. But it may not be so easy to figure out your own net worth.

 

Analyzing you net worth.

 

Net worth, your net worth, starts with looking at what is important to you. Take stock in your life. Look to your life and see the things that take up most of your time. This is what takes up most of your physical time plus what takes up most of your mental time.

 

You have heard “You reap what you sow,” “What goes around, comes around,” and “What you put your attention to is what you value.” This last one is very important. What is it that you spend your times (mental and physical) doing. Whether you admit it or not, what you spend your time on is what you really value.

 

So, is what you spend your time on what you think you value?

 

Assess what you spend and see if the returns on your investment are paying off as you would like. If not, then make some reinvestment of your time and see the increase in your returns. You will see how just a few minutes a day will begin to reap the returns you really want.

 

You only get twenty-four hours!

 

Some people say, “If I only had more time I could do better!” or “If I only had more time I would be happy.” The key is to do it now! Do whatever it is that will increase the return on the investment of your time. Do what will bring happiness in your life. Do what will bring peace into your life. Do what will make you feel fulfilled and alive. Do this today. Start with one step. Then take another, and another and so on.

 

What is your net worth? As much as you can imagine!

 

Increase your net worth today!

Postal Service Exceeds Expectations!

Postal Service Exceeds Expectations!

The U.S. Postal Service exceeded expectations with this action taken by a compassionate employee according to this letter I received a while ago.  We can learn by this example by being aware of ways that we can bring love to our everyday lives.  When we do this, everyone wins!  Enjoy the post!

Old Dog
*The Post Office*
This renews your faith in mankind!

*Someone in the Postal Service needs to be rewarded*
**A letter from the Post Office…  this is absolutely the best!!
We don’t know who replied, but there is a beautiful soul working in the
dead letter department who understands
LOVE……………………..

Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month.

The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was
crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey.

She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to
heaven, God would recognize her.

I told her that I thought that we could, so she dictated these words:

Dear God,
Will you please take care of my dog?
Abbey died yesterday and is with you in heaven.
I miss her very much.

I ‘m happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her.
She likes to swim and play with balls.

I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she
is my dog.

I really miss her.
Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey & Meredith,
addressed it to God/Heaven.

We put our return address on it.

Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she
said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven.
That afternoon she dropped it into the letterbox at the post office.

A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet.
I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch
addressed, ‘To Meredith’ in an unfamiliar hand.

Meredith opened it.
Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.’

Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God
in its opened envelope.

On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,

Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I
recognized her right away.

Abbey isn’t sick anymore.
Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart.

Abbey loved being your dog.

Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to
keep your picture in so I’m sending it back to you in this little book for
you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.

Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you
write it and sending it to me.

What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you.

I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much.

By the way, I’m easy to find.
I am wherever there is love.

Love,
God

This is a great example of compassion and paying the love forward.  Yes, I received this in an email and I was supposed to pass it along, which I did to some of my friends.  But whether or not this is something that can be proven by Swopes or not is not important.  What it does is wake us up to the importance of love in our lives.  We need to share this love with all we meet.  It doesn’t mean that we have to go around hugging everybody but it means that our awareness needs to be one of love and light to share with the world around us.

The energy we send out is the energy we receive.

The world is full of examples of the wisdom of this statement.  Let us remember this and work towards this path of love so we can all benefit, even ourselves!

Let us thank that person from the US Postal Service for reminding us of love.

 

How is your roller coaster?

roller coaster

How is your roller coaster?

Is your life getting in the way of what you are trying to do? Is your life creating a roller coaster of ups and downs that seem to keep you off balance while you are working hard to bring about a change in your life?

Roller Coaster life is normal.

Your life may seem out of control because it feels like a roller coaster. You may like to ride roller coasters, I don’t, but the roller coaster of life is different. It is bigger. It is a little or sometimes a lot scary. As it plunges after the hard climb to the top you feel the bottom of the whole world has just dropped out of your life. Where does it end? Where is the bottom? Maybe if I hold my breath long enough.

Life is like a roller coaster.

Like it or not, life is like a roller coaster and the ups and downs are part of the ride. How we deal with this ride

Very would bottle other levitra brand for sale of smell. Not as the.

is what it is all about. We can understand this roller coaster pattern and allow it to flow through, knowing it will come up again or plunge screaming as if to our death. Remember, it is your choice.

Which do you want to do?

It is not your choice to avoid roller coasters all together, but it is your choice to handle the ride with grace and excitement. For instance, there is a fellow, Woody Henderson on his 33-foot sloop, the Low Key, on his way around the world found himself in the Indian Ocean. Anyone who sails knows that this can be a tricky voyage.

He was encountering waves higher than his mast, about fifty footers. They submerged the boat and then calmly, with grace his boat rose out of the water and just kept sailing along. Woody was standing at the stern of Low Key and watched as just himself and the mast were out of the water. He knew his boat would rise to the next, and the next. He called these waves, “submariners.” Woody could have panicked, called for help (no one would come) or rise to the occasion and embrace the moment.

This was his choice. How we deal with our roller coaster ride is our choice. If the ride gets to be too much, see what you can change to make it better. You can usually find something that will begin the shift to an easier ride. If you don’t like the ride, make a change.

By the way if you liked that story, click this picture and order the book. It is a great read!

roller coaster

 

Jim Rohn, famous speaker, said, “For things to change, you need to change.”

Only by making a change in what you are doing right now will begin to make the shift to make your life the way you want it to be. Make your change. Make a little change to start and see what happens. The more changes you make the more your roller coaster of life will seem less dramatic.

Remember to embrace the ride and move toward the greatness of who you really are. The roller coaster is not the enemy!

John Lewis Marches OnFull Show: John Lewis Marches On | Moyers & Company | BillMoyers.com.

John Lewis Marches On | Moyers & Company | Bill Moyers

Bill Moyers always has a good program.  This Sunday he gave an interview to Rep. John Lewis.  I this link here because he speaks about more than this right or that right but also of love and non-violence and the importance to never give up the vision.  This is the link to the interview with Bill Moyers and John Lewis.  John Lewis is the last surviving person who spoke at the Washington D.C. march fifty years ago.  In the picture above John Lewis is the young man in the center next to the man speaking to him.  This was a wonderful testimony to the importance of the idea that we must never give up on our ideals and faith in humanity.

Some say it all about the rights of the black people of our country and that was and is the important message.  But, it is also a message of love and faith of all humanity.  The speakers were pointing out the we ALL need to be included in our society.  Dr. King spoke of a dream of ALL people coming together as one community.  John Lewis spoke of a revolution of the way things were and move to a world of peace and love.

Rep. Lewis said in the iinterview, it was not and it is not a struggle based only on the color of the skin; it is about poverty, access to education, to health care and the right to pursue and reach happiness.  It is still an issue and it is an issue that we need to pay attention to to bring about a change in our society.  We need to look beyond the differences and see that we are all in this together and we must figure out a way that our fellow humans are not marginallized.

John Lewis marches on and Bill Moyers marches on and WE need to march on too.  Bless us all!

Never Give Up!

Never Give Up!

never-give-up

Never Give Up! Strong words in any arena but important words for all of us. Never give up tells us to keep striving towards what is important to us. What is important to us as an individual, a family, a society and as a world. Strong words and yet very much to the point of what is important in our lives.

What is important in your life?

Does the phrase, Never Give Up, apply to anything that you are involved with today? Are you going through some challenges that you feel are too much for you to handle right now? Maybe you were going along in your life with nothing in particular affecting your path. Maybe everything was “just fine.” Then all at once it seemed to all fall apart. Your job, Your health, Your family, all these and more can affect us on so many levels. We lose our balance with our body, mind and spirit. Sometimes it seems that the whole world is crashing down on us. And, maybe it is.

Maybe your whole world IS crashing down on you.

How can this be when all along you were doing everything “right?” “How can this be fair?” Life is not “fair” or “unfair” to anyone. Even though we can point out what appears to be the case with so many around us and maybe including us too! What can we do about it? What can anyone do about it? We go through life the best we can and get upset when things seem to go wrong. How can we deal with the things that go wrong in our lives?

How do we perceive what is wrong in or lives?

This is the key point. How do we perceive the parts that are wrong? What is really wrong and what can we do about it? We are given challenges in our lives to help us grow and understand the importance of love in our lives. That’s right, we need to understand the importance of love in our lives. There was a Bill Moyers

program on this morning and the man he interviewed shared two quotes by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Love because hate is too heavy a burden to bear.” And one from King’s father, “You’ve got to love the hell out of them!” (Maybe if you “love the hell out of them” there wouldn’t be any left!”

Love is the key element.

Without love we have nothing. Why this works and why it is so important is that we never give up. As much fear that is put forward in our lives, and there is a lot of fear mongering on so many levels, we must never give up. As long as we understand the importance and the undefeatable strength that love provides then the idea to never give up is not a difficult choice to make. There are some people that say there is no choice. Love is all there is, there is no choice. I say Love is all there is and it is the best choice!

Never Give Up, You always have a choice!

Never give up or give up, your choice. Love is all there is and choose that, or not, your choice. Remembering that we have choice in all we do empowers us to be as great as we choose to be. Choosing the greatness that is our true selves. Sure we are constantly challenged with all sorts of lessons. It is our choice to lay down and be a victim of life or to never give up and be or best and move forward on our path.
