    Plant A New Seed and Begin Anew

    There will be times when your life experiences make you feel nowhere near being happy.  When you feel as if the walls are caving in and there is nothing you can do to stop them.  At times like this you need to stop, take a long deep breath, and remember YOU are the one who has the power to change it all.  We live in a world that is governed by the natural laws of good, creation and attraction.  How you think and feel will create your reality, whether wanted or unwanted. Too often we get swept away by the things going on in our outer lives.  We get caught…

    It’s Good To Be Back

    Last year was by far the worst year of my life!  I was in a total fog, not able to get in touch with myself.  I knew I was here and yet I was gone.  I couldn’t get a grasp of what was going on in and around me.  I was in a downward tailspin desperately trying to hold on.  I just kept sinking.  I knew which way was up but I was afraid.  I was afraid of expressing my grief and heartache because I didn’t want to feel it anymore than what I already was.  I was afraid to express my unhappiness and disillusions.  I was even afraid to…

    Are Your Thoughts Stealing Your Happiness?

    “You’d  never invite a thief into your house, so why would you allow thoughts, that steal your joy, to make themselves at home in your mind?” – Unknown  When I read this quote I had one of those moments when the light turned on and I could see more clearly ….. it really makes you think.  Why do we allow thoughts that steal our joy, happiness and well-being?  If you were told by a doctor that negative thinking is a life threatening disease, would you keep thinking negative thoughts?  No, of course you wouldn’t, but we do.  And what if you were told the cure for this life threatening disease…

    Be, Have, and Live In Happiness

    There will always be times throughout our lives when we experience periods of unhappiness, of feeling down in the dumps.  But regardless of how we are feeling, it is our choice as to whether or not we want to stay there or move ourselves back to a better feeling place.  There is nothing or no one who can make you feel anything ~ you are the only one who is in control of how you feel.  Yes, I know, we like to blame others for how we feel and we like to blame the world for how our life is playing out, but in reality and in truth, your life…

    Suicide Isn’t Just About Death

    Suicide is not just the act of killing one’s self.  Suicide is a long painful road filled with an endless feeling of such deep depression that it could be compared to that of slowly burning to death from the inside out.  Suicide is a choice not to be judged or criticized.  When a suicide story hits the news it is typically responded to in a negative way.  Many would say it is selfish, cowardly and an easy way out.  Some would even look at it as a sign of weakness, but I feel differently.  It takes a lot of strength and courage to make a choice of such magnitude ~…

    Living In Unhappiness

    If you are aware there is happiness and unhappiness, why are you still living in unhappiness? Are you putting your happiness in the hands of other things such as personal status, material possessions, or relationships? What happened in your life that caused you to become out of tune with your Inner Life, the greater part of who you really are, and therefore unhappy? This is a question that many of you will never be able to answer, but in reality it doesn’t matter. All that matters is getting back in tune with your Inner Life, how you feel NOW, and being truly happy again. What has happened and what may…

    Admit the Truth for Your Own Happiness

    When you live unhappy more so than happy, there may come a time when the only thing left to do will be to sit down, quiet your mind, and admit the truth for your own happiness. It does not matter what is creating your unhappiness, admitting the truth will set you free because it stops the internal fight and struggle.  You are no longer fighting against what you already know. You are not running or hiding from it.  Once the fight stops, the thing that is creating your unhappiness loses its power over you!  You are now in control! When you fight against the things you are doing or not doing…

    Resistance Creates Unhappiness

    The mind can create unhappiness through the thoughts it thinks. If you didn’t think, you wouldn’t have unhappiness because you wouldn’t be thinking of those things that cause you to feel unhappy. Thoughts are what you think, not who you are. Resistance of what is, is your mind gone crazy because you are constantly thinking outside the present moment. This unhappiness is initiated through your resistance to what you don’t want, so essentially you are fighting against an unwanted life experience. You think fighting against it will make it go away but it does just the opposite. Your resistance to that which you do not want will actually make it…

    Put It In the Jar

    About 4 years ago I was helping a 5-year-old boy who was living a difficult life.  Not only was he was learning the negative beliefs and behaviors of his parents who were both addicts and verbally abusive, but he was living with a lot of anger. During a short period of time I became his friend, confidant, parent, punching bag, companion and teacher.  We went through many painful times together but we also had some very joyful times. I remembered something he and I did that helped to relieve his anger and the things that bothered him.  It started with an art class.  He and I would do one form of…
