This is the first I have heard about your son's passing. I cannot begin to fathom a loss of this magnitude. You clearly have two vital assets to carry on and thrive; your own inner strength and the strength of your loving family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My natural problem solving intuition comes through when I can quite my mind of the old "NO's". I call it my "NO Free Zone." The NO-Free Zone is a place of relaxed silence where I can be passively watchful, serenely ready and calmly focused. This non-hostile state of mind is incredibly powerful. Relaxed and quiet, I can simply put that old NO in its place, back in the past, where it belongs. I believe there is no limit to what can achieve in truly NO-Free Zone.

Hi Galen, well said. We certainly create our own reality! Successfully seeing new perspectives requires that we value being teachable more than we value the bogus self-satisfaction of defending old points of view. It is amazing how attached we become to old thoughts and views. It takes courage to challenge old opinions that we preciously hold as valid. Sometimes, challenging them can leave us feeling deserted and helpless. We find ourselvesasking, “What am I to think next?” When we are open to fresh opinions, it becomes apparent that a lot ofour current self-talk is nonsense.

@Deeone Higgs Hi Deeone. It is always a pleasure to interact with you, no matter where we may happen to meet. Your life history is an incredible example of someone who has confidence that help is always on its way from the 'authentic you', no matter what the conditions may be. Have you lost confidence in yourself? NO. Can you no longer believe in your dreams and hopes? NO. Are you unable to trust the truth about your unlimited nature? NO. ..... EXCELLENT! MARVELOUS! CONGRATULATIONS! There is no stopping you. I will see you at the top! You are just the sort of person for whom is blog is written. Blessings.

@rdopping Hi rdopping. Pathways to perfect living are offered through many books, aren't they. Reading books help us get to the ultimate teacher - our selves! Self-knowledge is a state of total understanding. Only our own intelligence can win true happiness and success for us. This is what I believe, and what many great minds teach. Your comment reveals wisdom, which has you aware of things that no book can teach. Have you felt this more and more lately? Thank you.
@TheJackB Hi Jack. There are times when life can seem very unfair. I'm not going to say that you should turn a lemon into lemonade. That doesn't work for me. Yet it is true that when we seek higher visions, and if we persist - we receive special and superior insights into life and into our selves. I find that the insights keep destructive emotions from overtaking me while I put my life back together. The only real solution to suffering is to know that we are taught to live in division, in separate parts - but in the meantime - within the soul there is the exquisite whole, the eternal beauty to which every divided part is related. When I meditate on this, Jack, I am able to stop suffering thoughts from draining my energy. I hope there is something in this response for you. Thank you
@galenpearl Hi Galen. If my new book was printed (it's being published now), I'd think you got 'victim to victor' from me. This is exactly what I say in my new book (A Second Chance At Success): WOE makes you a victim. WOW makes you a triumphant victor! Mingling Minds are able to pick up one anothers thoughts - are our minds mingling right now? The eagle does not pursue the sky in which it soars, does it Galen. It simply glides with an attitude of WOW. Thank you.
@Harleena Singh Hi Harleena. I like your distinction between 'the way we think' and 'the way we want to think'. There can be a grand divide between these two ... can't there be, Harleena. I have found the first step toward self-rescue is to make it my conviction to think the way I want to think even in the most adverse conditions. And I want to think the truth - "I am marvelously made and destined to win at whatever I set my mind to ... and I am worthy of all that is good and beautiful." Sometimes I don't think this way. Self-rescue is about not only thinking this way but BEING THIS WAY in every moment. There's the challenge, isn't it, Harleena. Blessings
@Sabrina at MyMiBoSo Hi Sabrina. WOW means 'Wonderful Obsession with Winning' to me. And WOE means 'What On Earth' to me. WOW inspires me. WOE deflates my attitude. It is playful, and it is powerful, isn't it. Thank you for noticing. Here is a friendly fact for you to absorb right now - "self-reliance is not only a natural power, it is a pleasure." I teach you this so I may learn it deeper. Thank you.
@Julie | A Clear Sign Hi Julie. It's nice to chat with you on another website ... it gives a whole new perspective. YES, negative events offer positive opportunities for a person to be brave for herself, don't they, Julie. We are brave for ourselves when we correctly tell ourselves how to live, and allow no one to toss foolish advice our way. This is something you're great at doing, aren't you. Blessings
@Rileyhar Hi Riley, It can take a long time to escape the NO's that howl in the recesses of our minds. The howling NO's don't care if they cause you grief, do they. We need not worry, we need not strive, when we truly believe that happiness will just arrive. This occurs when we learn to change our focus, as you mentioned, Rileyhar. Thank you for offering your wisdom
@Sandi Amorim @Lori It does take courage to interrupt negative thinking patterns. One way I do this is to imagine myself sitting quietly by a stream that runs to a fruit orchard. I see all kinds of sweet fruit floating down the stream. Each has an encouraging thought to offer me, if I bite into it ... and then I choose one! What happens to the negative little worm that was crawling about on my field of my consciousness? It disappears in my fantasy. There are so may ways to support your effort and courage, isn't there Sandi. Thank you.
@Vidya Sury Hi Vidya. I love your boarding school story. It proves that your life is not predestined. You can create yourself anew over and over again before the truth about your unique unlimitedness is revealed to you. You have accepted that this is the path to higher dimensions of living, and as you mentioned - it has strengthened you. The wisdom of your original nature is beginning to shine through - feels great, doesn't it. Blessings
@annedreshfield Hi Anne. Yes, those moments when we step outside of our dead zone (comfort zone) and are brave for ourselves. They prove to be great moments, don't they. When the brightly colored butterfly emerges from the caterpillar, it is a very different creature - able to travel on the planet in a very different dimension. I like how that feels, as I can see that you do, too. Thank you for sharing . Blessings
@bdorman264 Hi bdorman. It seems no one can escape the 60,000 No's that all children here (to a greater or lessor degree), between age two and five. The 'terrible two's' are so terrible because that's when the NO's begin - that's when the children begin NOT believing in themselves like they did when they came from the womb. Oftentimes negative thinking creeps in, in tricky ways. If we did not participate in negative thinking in any way, then all of our dreams would manifest immediately. This is rarely the case for me. Dedication to positive thinking develops an invisible force that countermands the negative thoughts. It seems you have mastered this to a great degree. Congrats on that! Thank you for sharing a piece of your life. Blessings
@johncharlesowens Hi john. All galaxies follow the same pattern, and wise men (like those you quote) understood this, didn't they. It seems that universal clarity offers self-help, and this delightful fact comes to all persistent seekers, like yourself. The same divine perfection is offered to all of God's children. T'is a pity that so few know this. Those who escape the whirlpool of fearful emotions gain the freedom to express their divine originality. Sweet liberty! Thank you for your contribution.
Hello 'Late Bloomer'. Each life you give yourself is a consequence of being brave for yourself, isn't it. You began blooming when you decided to be brave for yourself. And every opportunity of blooming that you offer your daughter in the years to come will be because you support her when it is important that she be brave for herself. The entire cosmos and everything in it is made in an orderly fashion, and when we get involved in the orderly unfoldment of our lives - miracles happen! Blessings
Yes indeed Barbara. There is genius in simplicity, one of my heroes, Albert Einstein knew this well.
Simplicity and clarity lead to deeper understanding, and deeper understanding leads to pure knowing. Pure knowing is a profound state of being that leads to unshakeable beliefs. This can only occur at the subconscious level of the mind. This deep-level thinking part of our mind is where our true power lies. The subconscious is ready to listen and is ready to set us on a course that is inline with our goals. However, it can only do this if we communicate this understanding to it with simplicity and clarity.

Ahh, Yes. Great tips. A healthy glow begins on the inside and radiates out when we make it our priority to honor our Authentic Self.
Our false self is dull and wearisome, it engraves itself on our face and on the way we carry ourselves. This false version is over-reactive, is rigid and insecure, is physically exhausting, and is based on lies. It encourages minimal living because its essence is fear.
The Authentic Self is radiant and cheerful, infinitely unique and superlatively creative, and incredibly resourceful. This self encourages optimal living because its essence is peaceful and loving, ambitious and curious. What could be a nobler act than to open our arms to what is true?

This is a good one. I believe this about myself and believe all of us can add it to our label (although its a bit of a cheat :) ) --> marvelously made, destined to win.
