Don't Create in the Reality of Others

Inside Out Universe (Day 1 of 5)
Sometimes we try so hard to please others that we wear ourselves completely out, forget who we really are, and end up not pleasing anyone else anyway!  But, our interactions with others are the most significant parts of this experience as human beings, so they deserve our attention. So, that’s...

Give and Receive Freely

Inside Out Universe (Day 2 of 5)
There is a beautiful flow of abundance of everything that is streaming all around us. We could choose to join in and be a part of that, but we often choose instead to be a boulder.
 
We talked yesterday about not trying to please others, so today will sound like a contradiction, but it’s not....

Get to Really Know Yourself

Love Yourself First (Day 4 of 5)
When you get very intimate with yourself, you increase your power to create. Know your body, your emotions, your moods and your tendencies. Know what makes your heart sing and what makes you cringe.
 
Be aware of how your body responds to food, exercise, massage and other physical acts.  Be...

Cut Yourself Some Slack

Love Yourself First (Day 3 of 5)
Forgiveness is an enormously beneficial life skill and self-forgiveness even more so.  We all screw up.  We all sometimes behave in ways that are in conflict with what we intended or planned or aspired to.
 
We lose our temper, or eat something we swore not to, or skip going to the gym....

Love Your Body, Right This Minute

Love Yourself First (Day 2 of 5)
If you ask the person that you think has the most amazing body, you will probably find that she can give you a giant list of faults that only she can see. No matter how beautiful you think she is, she is likely to not agree with you.
 
This is proof that achieving the ideal weight or shape is not...

Test Your Words For Value

“The secret of being boring is to say everything.”
Voltaire
 
Watch What You Say (Day 5 of 5)
 
I am especially guilty of this, just chattering on about nothing or making random observations that would have been just as well kept to myself. Or saying 30 words when 5 or 10 would do. I’m working on it.

Test Your Words For Kindness

Watch What You Say (Day 4 of 5)
You may think that it is a good idea to shout unkind words at your enemy, but it never is.  Even though I don’t use the word “never”, I feel OK about it in this instance.
 
Slow down, look at your words before they leave your mouth and if they are unkind, keep them to yourself or...

Test Your Words For Truth

Watch What You Say (Day 3 of 5)
Sometimes we say words for no good reason, with no regard to whether they are adding to the world or not. The next three days we are referencing the teachings of Miguel Ruiz and learning to be impeccable with our words.
 
Today, we are focused on truth.  This one is easy. If you are about to...

Don't Be Against; Always Be FOR

Watch What You Say (Day 2 of 5)
Mother Theresa was asked to attend an anti-war rally and she refused.  She said, if you have a pro-Peace rally, invite me. A war against anything is rarely effective. If you see something in the world that you really wish didn’t exist, find the opposite of it and be FOR that.  
 
Instead...
