What's Good 4.1.14

Happy Tuesday!!! Gratitude Practice is here!!! How will you take what you are grateful for through the rest of your day? This isn't just about writing it down and sending it back… put it out there! Let the world feel your appreciation! Let's make a difference.

This only takes a few moments to do but gives to you for much, much longer. So put down whatever you are doing and take a couple of minutes for yourself. Every Tuesday morning I am going to ask you to write down 5 things that you are grateful for and email them to me (keep for yourself as well). What are you feeling gratitude around? Here are mine for this week:

Sleeping Animals.
Vegan Cookbooks that ROCK.
Making My Own Rules.
New Music and Old Music and Great Music and Bad Music.

There are no right or wrong answers. It is about what you are grateful for. It is proven that doing this once a week makes you happier, healthier, exercise more and less sensitive to perceived slights. You will sweat the small stuff less and focus on what really matters.

So… what are you waiting for???

What will it take to get people to recognize when they are being lied to? The thing about programming is that it is done early on, before one can recall what has happened later on. We are indoctrinated with “the way things are” and despite the fact that “the way things are” is and always will be changing, we feel certain that there is no other “way” things could be. We believe this so much so that we are willing to die for the truth of the moment (told to us by sponsors of various companies).

What if everything you knew was wrong? What if you could fly? What if aliens did exist? What if we weren’t supposed to use our power to subdue and harm other creatures? What if we were made to believe that we were supposed to follow arbitrary rules to live mediocre lives and stay busy so we would never learn the true nature of our souls. What if we were all just projections of someone’s mind? What if the big bang never happened? What if there was no beginning and no end? What if you stopped believing what you have been told and started deleting the programming little by little?

One way to become free is to challenge what you are directed to believe. Challenge anything that limits you. Challenge the notion that things are the way they are because there is nothing better. Remember, our nature is to improve, so why would we continue on with systems that are outdated, ideas that are archaic and barbaric and practices that are evil? Galileo was jailed for saying the world was round…seriously. Going beyond what is taught as the gospel is the only way to continue to advance. You cannot keep doing the same thing and expect improvement.

Everyday dig deeper, dream bigger, fly higher and don’t believe the hype.
