Thought of the Day – really nice peaceful words that instantly calm you. If you like what you see, subscribe.
The more we incorporate these positive things into our lives, the more they are in our minds, the quicker we are more more aware and better focussed. This sort of thing over time changes your thinking patterns and draws you closer to your inner conciousness.
We think the following quote from Paul McKenna really helps in defining what normal is:
“Some people experience hardly any good feelings during the course of a day. Because that’s what they are used to, they think it’s natural. What I point out to them is that a lack of joy in life isn’t natural – it’s normal.
But normal is just another way of saying ‘what usually happens’. In some parts of the world, poverty is normal. Children dying of hunger is normal. Cruelty to animals is normal.
The point is, normal doesn’t mean good, and it certainly doesn’t mean natural. Natural is what you’re designed for – and, simply put, human beings are designed for happiness.”

It’s always interesting to see politics filtered through the lense of spiritual thinkers.
At a recent Integral Institute seminar on business leadership, a senior zen teacher asked Ken Wilber, “what do you think of the Republican convention?”, his response is in the video below:
The Source (unleash your natural energy, power up your health, and feel 10years younger) by: Woodson & Kathleen Merrellis a deeply transformative.
We recommend this book – you will not want to stop reading it because it’s packed with practical insights and tips on how to increase and maintaining your energy resources, gain extra health, reduce stress and live a more fulfilling life.
It is a great guide to help inspire you towards healthy lifestyle changes. The Source program is designed to help reverse the many energy drains that throws your life out of balance and into illness. At the heart of the book is a 21 Day step-by-step plan with multiple energy-boosting tips for each day.
This book is jam packed with practical information like on removing toxins, simple exercise movements, great recipes, etc.
The best bit is that unlike many other holistic books, The Source has grounded information and won’t leave you with that “how do i apply it into real life” feeling- this then helps you to keep both your internal and external self powering forward into great physical and spiritual health.
There is no doubt that we are all currently at the crossroads of extraordinary change. It almost seems like the universe is shifting. Everyday consciousness is experiencing a total upheaval that is radiating through our entire planet ranging from the environment, politics, global markets to entertainment/etc.
Change now seems to be the constant mantra being directly sent to us from the universe itself. Every layer of our reality is currently being transformed in some shape or form. We are in a time of profound transformation, so it’s essential for us to stay connect to our true inner selves and not be overtaken by the fears that change naturally brings.
Many of us are currently caught up in our day to day dramas of life, we forget that we, as humans, exist on so many different energy levels. It’s vitally important for us to take a little time to surrender to the greater truth that dwells within each of us. It is essential that we not allow fear to get in the way of this deep knowing. Become present to the truth within you…
If you could choose between being a millionaire with a beautiful spouse and a yacht – or being a dog, which one would you choose?
The majority of us will of course would pick being human. So let’s examine both sides of the tail….oops, we mean tale!
As humans, we have meaningful relationships with people and the objects in our lives. Yet all of them are temporary, friends come and go, family pass away, objects and material pleasures perish and wear off. So the questions is: why pick being human?- What motivates us to be human? money? sex? adventure? – What happens when we are earning more than we previously ever dreamed of? – What happens if we can pick and choose our ideal spouse?
What happens after we have explored the unexplored lands? When we have walked and climbed over new terrains, gathered resources, reached the peak and then looked out to see another new hill/landscape ahead? What happens after we finally clambered over that final peak and find we have achieved our wildest dreams? We’ve made it!-We are accomplished heroes, people now look up to us and talk about us. What happens now that we have reached the pinnacle of our dreams?? What happens now?
The following is a beautiful quote taken from the book: Conversations with god by Neale Donald Walsch. We feel it’s insightful and truly provides a great answer to the purpose of life.
“There is only one purpose for all of life, and it is for you and all that lives to experience fullest glory. Everything else you say, think, or do is attendant to that function. There is nothing else for your soul to do, and nothing else your soul wants to do.
The wonder of this purpose is that it is never-ending. An ending is a limitation, and God’s purpose is without such a boundary. Should there come a moment in which you experience yourself in your fullest glory, you will in that instant imagine an ever more greater glory to fulfill. The more you are, the more you can become, and the more you can become, the more you can yet be.
The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation.
You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek, therefore, not to find out Who You Are, seek to determine Who You Want to Be.”
