“Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.”

~ Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

Isn’t it interesting how life is so predictable? That plants and puppies and all kinds of babies all grow up?

You know, my friend, our dreams are babies too. And just as we water and tend and nurture seeds so that they can grow into bountiful plants, we need to do the same for our dreams. We have to clear out the weeds — the thoughts of things unwanted — and nurture the vision of the dream in full bloom.

The Universe is on your side, my friend. It’s in place and fully prepared to follow whatever direction you give it, just as it’s always done.

“When the choice is to be right or to be kind, always make the choice that brings peace.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

Remember, my friend, peace comes from within. It comes when you’re aligned with Spirit. Either your need to be right is designed to bolster your ego or it springs from Spirit’s need for integrity. Only one of these scenarios brings peace.

All genuine resolutions come by finding peace within.

“Even to those who fail to understand it, the story of Christmas is one of the most beautiful stories ever told. When unfolded in the light of its mystic symbology, it is revealed as the true birth of every manifestation in the world.”

~ Neville Goddard, Your Faith is your Fortune

What is it you’d like to manifest, my friend? What are your desires?

Those desires are real — the seed has already been planted. It just needs for you to attend to it, to nurture it. As the saying goes, “If you can conceive it and you can believe it, then you can achieve it.”

And one last thing, my friend… you would not have been given the desire if you did not fully deserve it. You are not here to be tortured. Have faith.

Merry Christmas!

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”

~ Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas

With just those two magic words, “what if?”, we become like the virgin conceiving our future manifestations.

What if, my friend?

What if?

“When we take ownership for a problem and accept responsibility for our outcomes, we become agents of change as opposed to victims of change. When we resist the temptation to blame others or make excuses, we become part of the solution, not the problem.”

~ John J. Murphy, Pulling Together

Blame and victimhood go hand in hand down the road called unhappiness. Have you noticed? But, you know, my friend, problems and mistakes aren’t all bad. They’re opportunities to grow or find a better way.

Just know that dwelling on the problem will not bring about the solution. The frame of mind that uncovers a problem is very different from the frame of mind that uncovers a solution.

So next time you’re confronting a problem, take a deep breath and relax. You have to shift from problem mode to solution mode and tension will keep the solution at bay.

“My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.”

~ Henry Ford

Is your best friend the one who brings out the best in you, my friend? It’s interesting to ask that of yourself. And then even more interesting to ask yourself if you bring out the best in others.

Chances are the answer, whether yes or no, will be the same to both. But note also, my friend, that most often it’s by being challenged that our best comes forth.

When you think of it, it may be that you have friends that you’ve never thought of as friends.

“Perhaps life is calling you to solve a puzzle in the best way possible. You need the practical hand of the Only Being in your life, working through your own hands. Don’t presume to know the solution; ask the One to reveal it. As you work with your inner self, this pathway can remind the many voices in you that, while each has its own purposes and needs, all find their needs best fulfilled within an integrated “I am” — that is, ultimately in the only “I Am”.”

~ Neil Douglas-Klotz, The Sufi Book of Life

We all have many voices within that are integral parts of us. But, just like in any group, they don’t always agree! In fact, sometimes they work against one another.

The quickest way to integrate all the many voices in you is by connecting with Spirit, with the Infinite side of your nature. This doesn’t have to be difficult. It can happen within the span of a breath as long as your intention is clear.

Spirit is with you always, my friend. Make the conscious decision to connect with Spirit and, with that intention in mind, close your eyes, take a deep breath and ask for the guidance you need. The next step is simply to be open and trust that the answer will be revealed.

“Everything is ambiguous; everything is always shifting and changing, and there are as many different takes on any given situation as there are people involved. Trying to find absolute rights and wrongs is a trick we play on ourselves to feel more secure and comfortable.”

~ Pema Chodron

Think about this one, my friend. Absolutes just box us into corners. We might feel safer that way, but the limits make us uptight and rigid with no room to move. Maybe we feel more secure but really we’re stuck.

Give yourself some breathing room by trying on some other perspectives, the more the merrier even. It won’t be long before you realize that you just can’t know for sure so you might as well let go.

And when you let go you relax. Right? I trust you know, my friend, that everything is always better when you’re relaxed.

“What you’re thinking is what you’re becoming.”

~ Muhammad Ali

You’re in charge, my friend. You’re in the driver’s seat. You always have been. Did you know that?

It can’t be any other way.

So what are you thinking? Are you thinking about what you’d love? That was his strategy. He called himself the greatest before he ever was.

You can do it too, my friend, so get to it. You owe it to yourself.

“Any desire of the heart is there for you to discover and manifest. Whatever inspires you is an aspect of yourself. Be precise about what you admire in someone and find that part in yourself. If you have the aspiration to be something, it’s because you have the potential to manifest what you are seeing.”

~ Debbie Ford, Dark Side of the Light Chasers

Dig down for the very essence of what inspires you. It doesn’t matter whether the source was a dream, a vision, or something you admire in someone else, that inspiration is your soul speaking to you. This is the voice you must obey.

Don’t be afraid, my friend, it’s highlighting your path to happiness.
