Practice Aloha

At one of our favorite restaurants in Maui, Hawaii, you get a special bumper sticker with your check, “Practice Aloha”. “Aloha” is a friendly greeting of recognition. What a beautiful way to spread the peaceful island spirit. Why do we need a glaring bumper sticker to remind us? Why is there so little peace among us? Why is there so little joy among us? There seems to be so much of life lived as a cold war. We have not recognized one another for who we really are. Who are we? We are God’s very own, special people, whose innards are filled to the brim with the seeds of wonderful gifts that are just waiting to be discovered, valued, nurtured and brought to flower. Every time we fail to recognize in ourselves or in our neighbor the face of someone who is very special to God, someone who has a special gift to share, we are denying the seeds of peace and the aloha sprit. The making of peace begins not outside with diplomats, but inside the individual heart, yours and mine. That peace begins with the moment of self-recognition when we hear and trust the voice of God’s Spirit speaking to us, “You are my special loved one.” For at that moment we begin to value ourselves as great treasures to be treasured. Peace only begins there. It won’t happen until we recognize that God has spoken to those very same words to everybody else too; and every person we meet is a hidden treasure waiting to be brought to flower. Peace won’t really happen till all of... read more

Living Inside Out

“You will see in the world what you carry in your heart.” Greig Crippen Thoughts are powerful. They can work for the good or not so good. Your thoughts affect your everyday life…how you care for yourself, what you do with your hours during day, your successes or your misses, how you speak, your interactions at work or with friends and family etc. What you put out will return to you for better or worse. It’s in our power to change our attitudes bringing as much joy as possible into this lifetime. And it all starts within. Think beautiful thoughts and the world will be beautiful. It’s called the Law of Attraction working like a boomerang…garbage in, garbage out or gratitude in, gratitude out. You are on the receiving end of your own thoughts and attitudes! The Law of Attraction is a Universal Law stating that every positive or negative event in your life, you attracted. Operating easily in 3 easy steps, THINK, BELIEVE, EXPERIENCE, you are actually co-creating your own life. If you change your thoughts you can change the world! This concept reminds me of a sign I saw: “She loved life and it loved her right back.”It’s as simple and as complicated as that. Be careful of what you think, thoughts become words.  Be careful of what you say, words turn into actions.  Be careful of your actions, actions become your habits.  Be careful of your habits because habits become your life! Live beautifully, from the inside out! THINK ABOUT IT!!... read more

Are You a Risk-Taker?

“If there is a one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must.” Anne Lamott Life is full of closed castles doors. What is behind those doors is the mystery of life as it unfolds. How do you know which door is meant for you? Suppose you fail? There are no assurances.  There is one baseball quote that really says it all. It’s one of the “7 Secrets to Guilt Free Living” that I shared in my book “A Change of Habit”  “You can’t steal second base until you take your foot off first”. Sometimes we get stuck in the mire of the status quo, afraid of change. I’ve learned that we must embrace and deal the unknown and the change in order to grow. Are you a risk-taker? I’m usually not! I remember reading that one of the five qualities that most Octogenarians share is Risk Taking. In her book, “The Risk Factor”, Deborah Perry Piscione gives us some points to ponder to get the most out of life.  Risk Takers: -Are in touch with a greater purpose in life. When we see our “greater purpose” in the Divine Plan we live a loving life, grateful for opportunities.  -Generally have a lower level of fear than most people. Fear holds us back sometimes missing out on happiness. -Are curious about why things are the way they are. With this openness, curiosity creates a sense of wonder and imagination and has been linked to cultivating happiness. -They believe anything is possible. No obstacle is too large because their enthusiasm can overcome any hesitation. -They... read more
