“Your heart is like a flower. Is it still refusing to open? Is it still refusing to love? You must ask, “My heart, are you ready to open as flowers do?” You must ask it that.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh, you are here

Don’t be afraid. Just open the dialogue. For anything that’s important, you must open the dialogue. There is no better way to begin the process of change than to ask.

Be gentle, be patient, be understanding, be forgiving… and hold the vision of the flower blossoming.

So beautiful, my friend. Let the sunshine in. Feel it in your heart.

“Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart.”

~ Mother Teresa

Before you speak, before you act, before everything you do, connect with spirit. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, ask for guidance, open your eyes, and then act.

Your words and actions will be guided, my friend. All you have to do is let go and trust.

“Your soul doesn’t care what you do for a living – and when your life is over, neither will you. Your soul cares only about what you are being while you are doing whatever you are doing.”

~ Neale Donald Walsch

Be happy, my friend. It’s a choice, a decision you make. No matter how big or small the task at hand, feel good about your effort.

And you know what? The biggest gift you could ever give to the world is to pursue your passions and let your love shine through your every action.

Honestly, can you think of anything better? Don’t hold back, let it happen.

“Learn to believe in yourself. When you change your belief system you change your life.”

~ Rajashree Choudhury

Do you believe in yourself? Do you like where your life is heading? Are you happy?

You know, you get to choose your beliefs. Most often, beliefs are just thoughts you keep thinking. Some you adopted as a child without ever questioning. Consciously examine your beliefs. They are directing your life whether you realize it or not.

Choose beliefs that empower you and put them work for you, my friend. This is how you create the life you want to live.

Follow your heart.

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.”

~ Marcus Aurelius

Thoughts are powerful. And they become even more powerful the longer you focus on them. But there may come some moments when you find yourself reveling in a vengeful thought. What then?

It’s okay, my friend, short lived thoughts don’t really carry much power. You see, thoughts feed off of attention so the moment you shift your attention to something else they die off.

But… thoughts are powerful. A vengeful thought can shift you out of depression or fear, and a hopeful thought can shift you out of frustration. Notice how your thoughts affect how you feel and make them work for you. Direct them always towards something that feels a little better, and a little better, and a little better until, before you know it … Happiness!

Thoughts are powerful things, my friend. Use them with intention!

“To keep the body in good health is a duty … otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”

~ Buddha

Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy life — in that order.

There’s one place where you get to work them all at once, where you use your body as the mechanism to train your mind. It’s in the hot room and the more you do it the better you feel. You see, with a strong and clear mind everything else falls into place.

Bikram Yoga, my friend. Make it a priority.

“People say, “If I’m always setting goals and reaching for the future, then am I not squandering my now?” And we say, if in your NOW, you are using a future event to make you feel good, you are still feeling good in your now. And that’s the best use of NOW that you could ever find.”

~ Abraham-Hicks

From good feelings comes good things, and from bad feelings comes bad things. And you, my friend, are the one in control of how you feel by virtue of the thoughts you think.

You want to turn your life around and head for greener pastures? Then get in the drivers seat and take your thoughts for a ride. Test them out. See how they make you feel. If you feel better when thinking a thought then stick with it and see where it takes you next. The moment a thought feels worse, drop it, and look for another.

You get to choose. Mud or green grass. Where do you want to be?

Just remember, it’s your thoughts that set your course.

“That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

~ Steve Jobs

Sometimes we just have too much garbage in our heads. How can you focus clearly on what’s most important when you have so many distractions?

Remove or just ignore every thought that doesn’t serve your present purpose — especially your doubts and worries. Set your priorities. Get clear about what’s most important and then go to it.

Focus and simplicity, my friend, make it your mantra and go move mountains!

“Our doubts are traitors,
and make us lose the good we oft might win,
by fearing to attempt.”

~ William Shakespeare

Oh, oh, oh, my friend, don’t let this be you! Doubts only undermine efforts, but your heart harbors no doubts. So get centered in your heart, be certain, and don’t look back.

The pursuit of dreams feeds the joy of living and there’s no sense in postponing this!

Don’t let your fears rule your life. Honor your heart and pursue your dreams.
