What do you do when you find yourself? Play in the World Series…


You have found yourself.. Now what? You spent years discovering who you are as a spiritual being having a human experience what comes after that discovery. When you find that part of you that exists beyond thoughts and emotions, the divine self what do you do?
-
I am quite intrigued with the many thoughts shared here on WordPress by many as well as much of what is shared in Ancient and modern texts. I have a number of friends from around the world that I consider very wise spiritual beings. Many of those say that our divine self is here to observe and our existence is simply to discover our divine self or remember who we are. We are part of a spiritual being or a collective of souls that make up a spiritual being as such we are united as one. That collective of spiritual being not only includes souls it is a part of all that exists. We for the most part find that divine self through meditative observation learning that we are not our thoughts we are that which recognizes those thoughts.
-
Okay I will agree we are not our thoughts. We do however create with our thoughts. I personally think that quite often the Ancient wisdom shared is not quite understood. Perhaps I am mistaken yet I myself experienced a time recently when I was asked a question as far as being a neutral observer. What is the point of being just an observer? To sit on the sidelines in the game of life, what would be the point of being here just to observe? If we just observe and let our thoughts flow and go with no judgment or emotion what are we creating?
-
The tree doesn’t need to think or judge it just grows. Be like the tree?
-
The river doesn’t need to think or feel it just flows. Be like the river?
-
The bird doesn’t need to think it just flies? Hmm
-

The bird thinks and learns to fly by observing its parents flying, the Lion learns to live and hunt by observing its parents living and hunting, we as humans learn many things by observing our parents and our societies. Human are blessed with the gift of being able to think and observe our thoughts from a higher perspective. In observing from a higher perspective we have the gift of choosing and creating from a higher perspective.
-

Although I do agree that we must become observers of our thoughts to discover our inner truth and higher self I do not agree with the perspective that we are here to merely observe. I agree that we should go with the flow as does the river flow and the tree grow.. That flow is embracing the positive thoughts as they come and going around the negative ones as the river goes around the rock. Eventually the positive thoughts break down the negative thoughts like the river wears down the rock.
-
We are here to engage and interact, to create beautiful things for the greater good of all that exists. How do we do that? We find our higher self, our soul that communes and shares with the spiritual being that we and all that exists are a part or product of. Then we observe our thoughts and choose to embrace those that create the most beneficial and beautiful creations for our greater good. That includes what is the greater good for our individual human experiences. If you create more wealth for example for yourself you are creating more wealth you can share with others. Even if you didn’t stand on the corner giving it away you are sharing with others on many levels. Your happiness, your good fortune and your success is an inspiration to others. The other aspect and benefit to finding yourself first is that when you do become aware of your thoughts and choose responsibly what you create.
-
What do you do when you find your higher self through observation.. You create from that higher self with your thoughts, your emotions, and your actions the most beautiful life and things you could ever imagine. Create with love and compassion by listening to your higher self and passionately taking part in the adventure and game of life. Live with love after you learn to observe with love
-
Life is in my opinion the Super Bowl, The World Series, The Grand Prix the ultimate game and in it we are all Champions if we choose to get off the sidelines and play!
-
Thank you for being you and allowing me to express my opinion and thoughts. I am grateful and appreciate you and your presence here and in our world where ever you are. Thank you as well for being the positive change our world so needs as you share your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with! 

The Introduction to my new book… Thoughts?


It is my intention to share a story about a renovation project that in the end became the most beautiful and valuable renovation project I have ever undertaken. The story I would like to share is about a not so typical renovation project. It is a story of a personal transformation or transmutation if you prefer from the man I was conditioned to be to the man I was meant to be.

The majority of my life I have spent being a carpenter. Other than building things from scratch most of the work a carpenter does is in the form of restoring things or renovating things. Such as homes for example, updating them and making them more modern to better serve the needs of the people that occupy or will occupy them. Sometimes a whole house needs to be redone for a number of reasons such as outdated wiring, plumbing, tile or other visual elements that are broken missing or just plain ugly by today’s standards. Often we look at the interior and decide that the walled off separation of the interior makes the space appear small and cramped. The lack of openness and a bright airy space can give a feeling of dark and musty to an environment.

I have extensive experience in the craft and trade being a carpenter for twenty five years most of those working in New York City. My projects as a Union Carpenter were varied and quite diverse especially in regards to the buildings the work was done in. The oldest structure I was given the honor to work on was also one of my favorite to have worked on. That would be West Point a piece of American History built during the American Revolution it opened in January 1778 as a fort with the intention of stopping the British Navy from advancing up the Hudson River. Today it is the U.S. Military Academy the fort itself is now the cadets dining hall. The materials used in the renovation were restored for the most part; new materials were incorporated in the renovation to bring the old fort up to code safety wise. The newest structures I worked on renovation wise were being renovated primarily just to adjust space to accommodate the needs of a particular business.

The renovation that I take the most pride in however was the most beautiful and valuable it was also one that did not require any physical building materials. It was for me the most challenging and longest renovation I have to date undertaken. The exterior was in good shape needing just a little work yet the interior was in need of a major overhaul. It was in such a state I didn’t know where to begin at first. I couldn’t even see the true condition as so many walls had been built. The foundation was the first place surveyed and although it looked stable it was crumbling from the weight of all the added weight and from the sub standard materials it was built with. The wiring was of a time when it was really just wire with the barest of insulation. It was from the days of old when you just used the minimum to make it work. The fires from that old wiring inspired better materials and protection methods to be created for those ever so important wires. The fixtures and windows were old and outdated as were the cabinets all from another time even as old as a few centuries although they served the purpose they were worn and ready to be replaced.

Funny now looking back I wonder how I ever lived with things the way they were, I know that through time many of those I loved didn’t accept the way they were. I suppose that was the inspiration for the renovation in the first place. I had no idea what I was walking into as I made the choice to renovate. It was a difficult choice to make, many of my friends and associates questioned why? As did some of my family members, those that mattered most to me, my children would be the best example and they helped make the choice to do so easier. It was in a way that my children were the eye opener showing me the ugly interior and the walls that had been built. My interactions with them revealing those walls that were closing off the open space, blocking the light in turn creating that dark musty environment. I am not a fan of dark and musty, I like open bright and airy spaces like those found in nature.

I guess it would be fair at this point to share a little about what I saw when I opened my eyes. I can’t share that without sharing what made me open them…
FIRE!!!
No not in a physical sense more in a metaphorical sense. One of the downsides of being a great carpenter is the amount of time that is expected by your employers and customers to be spent taking care of their projects and needs. I used the word” fire” as that was what” happened” in part due the wiring that was so old in my structure. That part of the wiring was actually from my youth taught to me by my father, grandpa, many men around me and most deeply by my step dad through their examples. They would work six or seven days a week, ten twelve hours a day to make enough money to just get by and put food on the table. In my heart of hearts as a man thought that was what it meant to love your family. Work hard and make the money, the more work the more money, the more love you were giving. I wanted to give my family more and make sure my children as well as my former wife had all the material things they could want and the things I as a child never had or had seen my mother or grandmother ever have. I worked and worked, not knowing each time I missed dinner, each time I missed a school project, a family function the wiring was heating up and after so many years sparks were beginning to fly and smoke began to appear through the cracks in the floor and walls.

A personal note and update


Amazing how life is when you are living it! I would like to say that although I have not been as present here on my blog as far as writing and sharing my thoughts I have been trying to keep up with many of the blogs I follow. My attention as of late outside of the chopping of wood has been devoted to research … Lots of research.

Project 1 research: MARKETING, I have been doing research on the various aspects of marketing and branding. I am getting ready to start my new business and am working on a logo and brand as well as the best way to market my products so to speak. Marketing in this age of electronic communications and social media is quite fascinating and has so many new and unique ways of marketing and selling your business and presenting your personal brand. I have been invited to publish on LinkedIn and even have a few followers so I am doing some additional research as far as marketing on LinkedIn.
-
Project 2 research: Quantum NLP, I have been doing my research, reading the material, watching the videos listening to the audio material and getting to know the owner and founder Christiane Turner. I have been given a win/win proposal to write and manage the Blog at Quantum NLP in exchange for the classes and certifications as an NLP practitioner and life coach.
-
Project 3 research Metaphysics, I have been studying metaphysics and philosophy for the last seven or so years and have been trying to implement much of what I have learned into my daily life.
-
Project 4 research: Doing much research and study to find my target market. I have been told that by targeting the masses I may be limiting myself in some ways from achieving the success I desire in my future business endeavors as well as selling my upcoming book. My original target market is not even one that would even consider my book or services..
-
I was given a few awesome compliments as I attended my first practitioner class this last Saturday that seems to be in line with my research as far as my target market. A practitioner and graduate of the NLP training was in town and stopped by to say hi and sit in on the class for the wonderful energy that is shared in that environment. We stopped for lunch break and this wonderful human being shared a thought and smile with me. “I was so delighted to see you in the class, so many of the practitioners and healers in our society are women, I am so happy to see that there are men that care enough to better themselves and help others. I have only seen one other man in these courses over the last five years, it is not unheard of yet it is quite uncommon, thank you for being here and best wishes in manifesting your dreams as you help and inspire others” she shared with me. I was beaming and radiating pure loving energy for days!
-
Thank you all for your patience and allowing me to share a thought or two and express my reasons for not being so present lately, I am changing that and as I align more with my higher self and more opportunities begin to manifest it won’t be long before I have chopped my last piece of wood so to speak… Thank you all for being you and being the positive change our world so needs. Keep sharing your love and sharing your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with!

Namaste 

Reinvention of me or aligning with my inner being?


Today I was paid an incredible compliment by a respected friend that caused me to not only smile and say thank you it caused me to ask myself a few questions. Re invention or alignment was the first question I had to ask after the initial smile. The second question was what did I really feel about the compliment and why?
-
After participating in the Veterans Writing group I co mentor the facilitator and sponsor at the V.A. Hospital, Mike Scott surprised me with a few thoughts he shared. He looked at me and said thank you for participating and being a part of the writing group as both a writer and a mentor. Then he expressed his admiration for my ability and the amazing way I have re invented myself. From carpenter to intellectual, and future life coach, NLP practitioner and public speaker as well as aspiring to spiritual mastery and being an inspirational being.
-
In the three years since Mike read one of my poems and asked me to be in his writing group he mentioned how much he has seen me grow and change. He was quite impressed with my progress and quite inspired and moved by my adaptability and my transformation especially in my spiritual presence. He asked if I would be interested in a position or would consider being a volunteer in the peer to peer counseling group. The compliments and the offers made me feel good! I know I am on the path I am supposed to be on and where I am supposed to be at this moment in my journey. Good things are happening and better things are yet to come as I assist and give service to my fellow human beings with love from my heart.
-
Did I re invent myself? I have had several comments on some of my blog posts that expressed the same sentiment. I have to say that I don’t know that that is the case; I am more inclined to say I have become more in line with who I am. The person I am and was meant to be as I came here in this physical form. Since my youth I have had the desire to express myself in an artistic way through poetry and visual art as well as verbally although in my younger years in a very direct and blunt way.

-

I have always had the desire to be me yet the influences of the world had the effect that peer pressure has on an individual and through fear limited my true expression of self both intellectually and spiritually. How many 9 year olds read Emerson or Thoreau… How many boys enjoyed or had even heard of Emily Dickinson let alone understood the depth of her soul in her expression of thoughts poetically? (She was a loner and rarely left her room) I was the one that walked to the beat of a different drum and rather than be the odd ball I conformed to society and family pressures.
-
As my former life crumbled and I spent more time in solitude I began to align with and find my inner being. To know and embrace my inner truth, the years of being a craftsman are a cherished gift yet as a young man my dreams were of a higher calling. I was a gifted and intelligent child with no means, from a family of little wealth and a formal education was beyond reach.

-

I have found that over the years my inner self has been calling me to align and be who I am rather than continue living in fear and succumbing to the expectations of others. Family was one of those that I was trying to live up the expectations of has seen the same change as my friend Mike and now supports and embraces the change and transformation I am going through. They know that the trying times I have been through over the last seven years, has been a good thing even though from the outside perspective seems to have been otherwise. My 100,000 $ + a year job gone and left behind for an uncertain future, my countless hours of study and research as well as the many hours, days , months and years of solitude to find and know “who and what I am”. Have been harder for them at times than it has been for me, yet I am lining up with who I am and what I came to do.
-
I am here to be a part of and add depth to the evolution of Consciousness and the greater mass conscious awareness of humanity. To help others align with their inner being and inspire them to become consciously aware of who they are and to express their individual and diverse perspectives and add to that mass consciousness.

-

I admire and embrace the concept that we in our own time have an obligation to contribute to the evolution of humanity in a positive and meaningful way. It is in our reach to become a better human race than we were yesterday and even more so than we were 2000+ years ago in the time of Jesus of Nazareth, and even more so than 3000 years ago in the time of the Greek philosophers and 5000 years ago in the time of Buddha or the times of the beginnings of the Hindu societies and the Great Ganesh. We have all the history and wisdom of the ancients to draw upon and create a better humanity and paint a picture of such beauty and grace that the ancients would be proud of what we create with the loving wisdom they left us to work with.
-
The first steps to doing so are to become consciously aware of who we are and align with our inner beings or higher selves and make those changes. It doesn’t require anything more than the desire and love of ourselves to do so and the willingness and effort to do so. For me it has taken seven years to unlearn what a lifetime taught me about living for the expectations of others and being afraid to be me.
-
I wanted to express my thoughts at the request of a friend that asked me to write a post from my heart that was inspiring and would help her find her “backbone” I would like to say we all have the capacity to change that process starts within, while you are there first find who you really are and want to be then know you can do it and do it even if the rest of the world seems to not understand at some point they will step back and say… I am in awe and admire you for re inventing yourself.. You can smile and say no I just lined up with who I am and who I was meant to be.. I am finally becoming me! 

Thank you for being you and being the change positive our world so needs by sharing your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with

Success? Subjective or objective?


Sometimes in life I have wondered if I was a success, I know I am yet success is such an objective word.

suc•cess
noun \sək-ˈses\
: the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame
: the correct or desired result of an attempt
: someone or something that is successful : a person or thing that succeeds

 

The definition doesn’t necessarily express what is success in some terms such as is a homeless person or can a homeless person be a success? What about a poet that wrote a poem and invested money in frames and various printed versions of that poem and didn’t sell any yet the poem was read by 6,000 people? Or an artist that put a painting in an auction and sold it yet barely covered the costs of the materials used to create the art?
I sold a painting I had put much time effort and heart into I had listed it on eBay, it was the first experience I had in doing so and listed it for a minimum bid that was less than it cost to produce. The suggested price for a beginning bid was .99 cents I chose 10 dollars yet felt I should have started at 40. It was an auction however and I had imagined various people bidding on the painting and making a profit, it was a very beautiful and inspirational painting.
The last day of the auction with no bids submitted a lady put in the minimum bid and bought the painting. I had sold the painting my second painting I had ever sold, I was happy to have sold it yet questioned was it a success, after all the canvas it was painted on had cost me 7 dollars and the paints perhaps another 5 not to mention the time and the heart that had been put into creating it. I was successful however in selling a painting and that made me smile. I was not so successful at making a profit or was I?
The lady that had bought the painting was a very special and beautiful lady that I am fortunate to call my friend. I had met her seven or so years ago on “MySpace” a social networking site I used to use mostly to meet women I would date. I was attracted to her and had the thought of asking her to date me. I learned however that she had brain tumors and cancer, I was not in a position nor did I have the desire to pursue a relationship with her for those reasons. I was not sure how to deal with those kinds of issues and although I liked her and admired her I was not ready for such a relationship. She has gone through much in the last seven years and has come a long way as far as her health is concerned. She has a beautiful daughter from her marriage that ended with her getting cancer as her former husband walked away.
She chose to remain my friend over the years in spite of my weakness, she saw the painting when I listed it and shared the link on FaceBook . She commented within minutes how she loved the painting and that I should charge more for shipping. She also had commented on how much she loved another of the paintings I had listed. When she bought the painting I wrote her a note and expressed my gratitude for her buying it even if I had not made a profit I was happy she had bought it and I hoped she would enjoy having it in her home. She wrote me back and her note made me realize I had in fact profited in a way far more that any money could have given.
She wrote me expressing how the painting was inspiration to her in a very deep way as she struggled to get a home for her and her daughter. The comfort and peace she felt when she saw the painting was one she truly cherished, she mentioned that she had wanted to buy the other painting as she loved it yet it was more important to buy her daughter some shoes. Tears fell down my cheek as I thought about when I had first met her and what she had been through since then. Her struggles and raising her daughter with the lack of solid support in some ways, what she must have experienced and learned in the spiritual sense to have the strength and courage to do so. I knew that that painting had somehow found its way to where it belongs.
When I painted the painting I had not painted it for money, I had painted it as I was inspired to do so and it was painted with love from my heart. As an artist, poet, writer and a creative being it is the hope while creating that others will be inspired or appreciate and enjoy those creations that are created. I took a look at what success meant to me and I would have to say that if I brought one smile with something I created beyond my own smile I am a success in sharing my heart and my love of creating. I looked at the poem I had not sold a copy of as it soared past the 6000 mark in views and smiled deeply from my soul. I knew many that had read it perhaps had no money to buy a gift for their daughters and perhaps printed that poem and gave it to their daughters framed or unframed to express their love in such a beautiful way… I have profited far more again than money could give as the treasures in my heart and the hearts of those that shared as well as those shared with smile and love deeply the sentiments expressed.
I put the second painting that my friend had wanted to buy in the box with the one she bought it should be hers as well and was the first painting I ever finished it deserves a place in a loving home. I hope she truly smiles and feels the love I share as I feel the love of who she is and her heart of gold. I wish I could have bought her daughter some shoes as well… I wish her and her daughter the best and will be a better friend in the future although we are not meant to be a couple she is my friend for life and I am honored she allows me to be so.
Thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two and perhaps a smile. I would love to hear your thoughts as far as what success means to you… Thank you all for being the change positive our world so needs by sharing your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with. 

Nine hills to climb.. A poeticly expressed thought


http://iamforchange.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/d39f8-guilin-mountains-china.jpg?w=675&h=440

 

The gifts and treasures of material gone
The memories of loves for which I used to long
A journey I took to make me strong
-
The losses had broken me apart
Then the journey of nine hills was at its start
The losses and gains I take no longer take to heart
-
The nine hills I have chosen to climb
Those I have come to those hills divine
The nine hills found beyond my mind
-
The nine hills so rocky and steep
Nine hills in my soul I keep
Nine hills so I may learn not weep
-
At the summit of each hill I climbed
I paused and reflected as I took the time
A gift of love a treasure there I would find
– -
Pondering in awe at the world I would stare
Knowing it is love and beauty everywhere
Finding love unconditional for all there is for me to share

On top of the hill as I contemplate and enjoy the view
Stripped naked wearing nothing to begin anew
Knowing and loving who I am to myself I am true
-
Treasures I lost I seek not to find
For I cannot lose what is truly mine
The treasures true to me will return in time
-
As I sit on the highest one
Hill number nine in the rising sun
I realize the treasures I lost are none
-

I wanted to express a thought or two in a poetic way. The poem is inspired by a hexagram I have drawn several times in recent weeks while exploring the “Book of Changes” or the “Yi Jing” as it is also known. I have been observing and learning various philosophies from through out history and find myself most intrigued at the similarities and differences in the Eastern and Western perspectives. Even from region to region and philosopher to philosopher the variety and depth of perspectives is amazing and quite to use a miss used phrase quite “enlightening” I would choose to say they all enrich and add to my depth rather than enlighten.

There are as many philosophies as there are people, we all have learned and developed our own philosophies as we journey through life. It is those that choose to share and express their philosophies that inspire us to find and create our own. Plato was one of those that inspired me to seek a deeper insight into my own philosophy. There are actually many that have inspired me to reach for a deeper understanding of myself and in turn my fellow human beings, to be honest of all that exists.

The nine hills are actually a metaphorical expression of Ancient Chinese Philosophy, nine represents good luck and good fortune, the hills are values within a human being, the steep and winding trails expressed are the depths of ones self and  are those preferred by Dragons the light and dark within, the dragon is a very powerful symbol in Ancient Chinese culture and philosophy. I embrace the concepts of the ancient philosophies and cultures especially those of the East the Hindu, Buddhists, The Taoists, the teachings of Confucius and Lao Tzu stand out yet there are many more, the diversity of them especially viewed together creates a very beautiful and deep picture of that part of the world. The western philosophies panted a very different picture just as diverse and just as beautiful only from a more material and out word perspective as opposed to an inward perspective chosen by the East.

I ponder the concept of enlightenment as I sit atop the Ninth hill and create as well as embrace my philosophy. I can not claim enlightenment nor that I have reached Nirvana, I can say I have left the cave and chosen the path I have chosen. For all that has been in my life materially and spiritually is a gift whether, I posses it in the physical sense or not is irrelevant. A car breaks down or gets totaled, people leave or die, money comes and goes, the only constants are change and my conscious awareness of those changes. What I have began to realize as I observe, is that my choice of how I accept those changes is the gift of enrichment of my inner self and the character I am viewed as by others. If I choose to throw a temper tantrum or melt down in the face of adversity I am viewed as a spoiled or weak human being or perhaps an angry human being. If I choose to take it in turn and smile I view myself as a beautiful soul with love and compassion for the many that have Joegone through the same or similar circumstances. A person viewed by others as having good character and integrity. Neither is better than the other, just from my personal perspective I do feel better and feel more aligned with my inner or higher self when I choose to look at things with love and compassion being empathetic with myself and others.

I thank you for allowing me to share a few thoughts and taking the time to read them and let me do so. I hope to have shared a smile or two. Thank you all for being the positive change our wold so needs by sharing your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with. :) Namaste, Peace, Love and Light… ; ) I share my love and my smile with you thank you for sharing yours with me! :)

The path of mean…Peace… A poem


Stillness in my mind
Inner peace brings
Quieting my heart
Allows it to sing
Quiet and still
In the dark
From nothingness
Creating the light
From where life starts
-
The spring
Under the mountain grows
From it the brook
Then the river flows
To the ocean that brings life
To all living things
-
Still be my mind
Quiet be my heart
Darkness to light
Spring to river flow
Letting the life within me grow
Learning to live with everything
Peace is the path of mean
-
I choose to share a thought or two, about my journey as I learn who I am and grow. I have studied many things religion, philosophy, history, my own path of travel and experiences have inspired me with ancient wisdom aided by technology. Many lessons there are that have been shared about meditation and stillness of the mind and the inner peace you find.
I found it somewhat Ironic as the trend of follow your heart and reach for your dreams is the path to become what you want and be who you are is one I had so embraced. I had not even considered that my heart may take me to the wrong place. As I learned and studied some very ancient texts and regularly measure my energies in various ways, that the mastery of my mind and thoughts was not the end of the process or the beginning. We not only are what we think nor are thoughts the only way we co create our realities. It seems as we become more aware of the power of our hearts the more we are aware of the influence of our hearts and emotions have on what we create.
I listen to a variety of spiritual teachers and “gurus” and “enlightened ones” I admire their conviction and the way they embrace their beliefs and share their paths and knowledge to allow us the same realizations of inner peace, prosperity, having what we want by attracting it. I believe these things are all true yet one thing for me was missing one teaching un taught.
I consulted an ancient text, a divination tool I use for learning and understanding my own polarity and energy. I had come across an ancient text that resonated in my heart as I have an open mind and have an understanding of the power of the heart. It had mentioned something that no other had referenced and shed some light on my growth and spiritual journey. ‘To quite ones heart is a difficult task yet one that must be mastered to know the superior man and bring success, good fortune for the superior man the end of the inferior man.’ To master my mind is becoming easier with conscious effort and practice, my heart however is quite another story. I am learning a deeper side to inner peace and the laws of my inner being or higher self. Perhaps my heart has been tainted by my ego or perhaps all the natural feelings in my heart are not all for the good? All things are inherently good so perhaps the natural side of my heart is good and has good intentions yet not all good intentions or good things are of a higher nature.
As I learn to be the best me I can be, or as the Eastern philosophies would call becoming a superior man I begin to understand it is not all about silence and the mastery of ones mind. The quieting of ones heart is far more complex and far more valuable to my understanding of my higher self, than I had ever considered. Over the years my heart as my mind have been conditioned in the same way as my mind through experiences and observations along the journey. To quiet the heart is a gift I choose to embrace yet has been more of a challenge than being still in my mind. I can not make my heart still nor can I force it to comply with my mind or my will, to stifle it will cause it to suffocate and become hard and brittle. The only way that has been shared is to gently love away the past and gently rock it and hold it bringing comfort allowing it to become quiet of its own accord.
By a still mind and a quiet heart true peace is found, the path of mean, the line between heaven and earth the way of the Tao, the footsteps of God the path of least resistance the law of the universe the knowing of the higher self, finding my soul. Has been an interesting lesson to find and one I am learning and embracing, everyday I learn how much I do not know. The less I know the more I grow. Just a thought from a simple man and a different perspective some may find interesting and even helpful as they seek inner peace and learn who they are and what is their truth.

Thank you all for allowing me to share some thoughts and perhaps a smile or two. I also want to thank you all for sharing your time with me and for sharing your love and your smiles being the positive change our world needs. You are making a difference and making our world a better place for all we share it with, thank you! 
