Knowing

"To know means to be silent, utterly silent,
so you can hear the still, small voice within.
To know means to drop the mind.
When you are absolutely still,

You know it by becoming part of it,

The words "against the grain should be the way of life," came through and because I am such an emotional woman I began to cry. There were two things that I started to think about when I heard these two statements.

As I was driving down the …

They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." ~Steve Jobs

Create Your Own World of Happiness

When the sun is shining, your neighbors are smiling, your children wake up in a great mood and even do the chores without your request, your spouse brings home flowers, you get a raise at work or you receive an unexpected gift in the mail, all of these cause great joy and your day progresses much like this. These scenarios put you in a great mood and then you extend your happiness to everyone else. Perfect, life is a breeze!

But when you wake up discouraged from a dream, didn't sleep well, coffee spills on your newly dry cleaned shirt, you get stuck in a traffic jam or someone cuts you off, your spouse comes home in a foul mood, someone criticizes or blames you for something you didn't do or your children are so strong-willed that you can't seem to relate to what they do or want, your mood seems to flounder in a place of, perhaps anger or disappointment. Now, life sucks! And everyone around you will know it too.
