The Tragedy of Life is not Death, But What we let Die inside us while we Live.

Life is more about knowing what to want, than knowing how to get it. Once you make a firm decision concerning what you want, and stay focused on achieving it, the Universe will open doors of opportunity in your life, that you never imagined nor could foresee. Many people try to do this, but throw in the towel just before their desires manifest in their lives. The secret is persistence and patience.

Learning and education does you no good if you don't know how to use what you learn. Don't shoot for a brain full of facts, but instead aim for a complete understanding of the principles behind whatever you want to learn. Anything less is facts without the wisdom to know how to use them, and almost worthless.

Are you living your life the way you want or had hoped to when you were younger? If not, why not? We only live on this earth for a short while. You shouldn't have the attitude that you will "do it differently next time," even if it is a subconscious attitude.

Live life to the fullest. Experience as much as you can. Do as much as you can for those in your life and those you cross path with during your journey. This is it; this is the time to think about how you will spend the short amount of time that you have on this earth. How will you spend yours?

Native Americans believed that they were able to get closer to Thier Gods during times of solitude. Ancient Pagan Religions Believed that Meditation and Solitude let you hear the Gods Speaking when you Clear your mind of all the noise and Wants in your Life.This same philosophy can be found in Eastern religions which spend much time in meditation. Even Jesus would leave his followers and spend solitary time with God.

This philosophy is found throughout most of the world. If you are feeling out of sorts, stressed, or just need some answers, find a quiet place and spend some time in meditation with God and see what a difference it makes.

If you are serious about your spiritual life, you will live it 24/7, not just on one day a week, for a couple of hours, or when you are practicing your meditation. It has to be a part of who you are, not something that you do.

How serious are you about your spirituality and the things that you proclaim to believe? Think about it

God /Goddess is not going to yell over your stereo, TV or computer to get your attention. God /Goddess is more like the wise, old sage that is always ready to help those who come to him, but doesn't go around knocking on doors like someone peddling religious literature door to door.

In order to hear from the Source, you have to make the effort and spend some time in silence, seeking His voice. This is yet another advantage of meditation. When you do your part, the Universe will do its part. But don't expect to be babysat while you do whatever you please. Take the time to seek what you want to find.

Everything on this planet has a purpose, although we may not know what the purpose of everything is. Some things, such as spiders, may seem like only a creepy annoyance, but that is only because we haven't discovered their purpose yet. Actually, spiders have several purposes that have already been discovered, but that is a whole other subject.

The point is that absolutely everything on this planet has a purpose, and that includes YOU. We simply have to discover the purpose of things such as mosquitoes, slugs, annoying fruit flies, and other things which we don't yet completely understand.

In the same way, you have to discover what your ultimate purpose is. You are here for a specific reason, one that only you are meant to fulfill. Discover your purpose and follow your heart. No one can fulfill your purpose like you can! You are unique and special

The secret is within you. Hummmmm...what secret do you suppose is within you? Many sages throughout time have taught us to look inside to find what we seek, and that everything we need can be found inside yourself. But what exactly can be found by looking inside?

The secret is that our spirit is connected to God and that if we will take the time to be quiet and meditate, we will soon realize this. Even Jesus stated that the kingdom of God is inside us.

The reason most people don't realize this is that they are too busy and don't take the time to slow down, get quiet, and spend time listening to the wisdom from within. When you do, you start to discover the true secret of life and you will look at things from a different perspective.

Each individual is the master of his own life and death, the master of mortality and eternal life. What he does is what he is. This is the spiritual truth. Lao Tzu

You are in control. It is time to stop whining about how things are and take control of how things will be. If you aren't happy with how things are going, take the steps to change them. You only live this life once; live it your way. Don't allow stress, complacency, and problems to dictate to you how you will live your life. You are the captain of your ship. You decide what direction you will sail.

Realize that feeling lost and confused doesn't mean you can't make a difference, your broken heart can still love again, and that feeling lonely doesn't mean you're actually alone. Your emotions can play tricks on your mind. While it is important to feel what you feel, it is more important to think rationally and to listen to your intuition. Never rely on your emotions when it comes to important decisions

Speak nor act before you have reflected. Pythagoras

Tip of the day ~ It is always wise to think BEFORE you speak or before you act. So many times we just say something on the spur of the moment and then later live to regret it. Either we didn't mean what we said or were just speaking out of anger or frustration, but other people take our words to heart nonetheless. Pausing and thinking about what you about to say prevents many regrets. The same principle goes for our actions. The point is, always THINK; that is what you mind is for. You should think, then speak or act, not the other way around.

Every time an old man dies, it is as a library has burnt down. Chick Oumar

If you aren't spending time with the elderly in your community, you are missing out on a valuable resource available to you. Elderly people love to have visitors; they love to share their wisdom and knowledge. Not only would you be better off, but you are doing something special for them at the same time. Don't miss the opportunity to do gain wisdom and insight, while at the same time spreading joy and happiness to those who deserve it.

Letting go doesn't mean we don't care. Letting go doesn't mean we shut down.
Letting go means we stop trying to force outcomes and make people behave.
It means we give up resistance to the way things are, for the moment.
It means we stop trying to do the impossible ~ controlling that which
we cannot ~ and instead, focus on what is possible ~ which usually means
taking care of ourselves. And we do this in gentleness, kindness,
and love, as much as possible

Little things can make people feel good. Saying something positive to them, a small compliment, or a pat on the back, can all have a very positive influence in the lives of others. You never know when that smile and kind word will be exactly what someone needs to lift his or her spirit. Everyone needs to hear good things about themselves, but too often most people don't get to hear these messages that they so desire. It cost nothing to give someone smile and a nice compliment. It cost nothing to treat someone with respect and manners. Just a couple of well-phrased comments can make a remarkable difference in someone's life. Just do it!

Although you can't see the end of the road, trust the Universe to guide your path.

We aren't meant to see far into the future. That is not the way we are designed. We are meant to live in the present moment and trust that the Universe will show us the way in the next moment. Have faith in both yourself and in the Universe, and savor each moment as it comes on your journey through life

Ordinary is simply not good enough; be extraordinary. Most people in this world live ordinary lives. They go through their lives almost on autopilot, going through the motions day after day. This is the ordinary way of living. You only live once; don't settle for ordinary. Make your life extraordinary! Live your life to the fullest every single day. You are here for much more than to eat, sleep, and work. Be truly alive and live your life with enthusiasm and gusto

    Beautiful blog, DAW. You do such a great job with these posts. Sometimes I feel as though you know me better than I know myself. But I k now that the feelings you talk about are universal. We just don't stop to acknowledge them. I need to get into a regular routine of meditation. Sometimes I just feel like I need to turn the noise off and gather my thoughts. Thanks for all the good you do for all of us.

    you just need to Build yourself a Meditative place

    Simple way to build one is a Room or place you are most Comfortable in surround it with Plants and the sound of Water and Air
    Water is Life it calms the soul Air is Energy it flows and helps put you in a Relaxing state of mind be as comfortable as you can and just let your mind go Blank

    Relaxing music and incense helps

    Easier said than done. I'm rarely alone. it's almost 12:30am and my mother still up and asks me every ten minutes if I want to go to bed. I tell her no and round and round we go. My life is not really my own right now with her here. The TV is always on and sometimes I feel like putting my foot through it just for some quiet. The only time I am alone is if I get up early in the morning. That gives me some time before Mum gets up and usually my husband is gone to work although he's been working at home for the last two weeks. I would do almost anything for some time alone. Now I'm whining so I'll stop.
