Are you one of my 150? Dunbar’s number
Can I define myself as lonely… Not at all. I have so many wonderful people that inspire and move me forward everyday. People who make me a much greater person that I can on my own. People who teach me and help me grow and sometimes from unexpected personalities like this one from (CHRIS) Ashton Kutcher. Such Gratitude! THANK YOU, WOW!
I wanted to thank Dale Beaver with CFC for my inspiration today.
I got an opportunity to be extremely grateful for the gifts that are given to me and I am doing that now. The “E” in BREATHE, end everyday with gratitude, is becoming easier for me to see and practice. Sometimes when I get into a slump and forget what’s life purpose for me, but that’s when I get an OPPORTUNITY WAKE UP CALL. On a related note, I have renamed my “alarm” clock to Opportunity Clock because of listening to Zig Zaglar. (http://www.mattlmckinney.com/ditch-the-alarm-clock/)

We all rely on others for support, even when we think we can do it all by ourselves. In my quest to find “What does life want from me?”, I have been guided by so many people. Even THIS question was changed in the writing of THIS blog by Storm Avery. I originally had wrote “What life means for me?” then I watched this video, http://x959fm.com/blogs/deep-thoughts-with-jake-kelly/721/video-words-from-eckhart-tolle/. Spiritual guidance comes in many forms. I realized that I just have to be willing and able to see and accept it.
And speaking of relying on others, think of the breakfast we had this morning. From “Think and Grow Rich” (UNABRIDGED) by Napoleon Hill, he speaks of ORGANIZED CAPITAL. Here is a sample as he talks about the INEXPENSIVE sugar we put in our coffee or tea.
“To supply the sugar, you would have to take another long swim to Cuba, or a long walk to the sugar beet section of Utah. But even then, you might come back without the sugar, because organized effort and money are necessary to produce sugar, to say nothing of what is required to refine, transport, and deliver it to the breakfast table anywhere in the United States.”
It would be very difficult to live the lifestyle I live without the help from others. All these businesses help produce a product much cheaper and faster than I could make myself. So I give my gratitude to all those people who made it possible. THANK YOU! They, in essence, are helping me be the person I am and making it possible to pass this message on to you. I could never have produced a computer and the internet by myself. However, I am able to use it to research materials then post blogs for all to see.
I always marvel on how duos can be greater together than apart. I was talking with Storm and she played the Abbot and Costello – Who’s on First skit for me. I have to say it has always been ONE of MY FAVORITES! Below is a video I found that gave me chills especially at 5:33 – “Well, … We’ve come on here as a Duo and we’re gonna stay on here as a duo.”
La forza che ci dai
We ask that life be kind
E’il desiderio che
And watch us from above
Ognuno trovi amore
We hope each soul will find
Intorno e dentro a se
Another soul to love
– “The Prayer” – JOSH GROBAN
Well Ol’ Zig has been feeding my brain lately with wonderful insight. I tend to think of the his life lessons like a grandfather’s wisdom that I always wanted. He makes me laugh, reflect, and most importantly think. His body passed away last year. The reason that I say it that way is because he may not be living on the Earth BUT his legacy, his positive message carries on even after his “death”. So in theory, he has not yet died in my eyes. My purpose in life is to create such wonderful relationships that carry on after my body dies. I want to inspire others and make a lasting positive difference in their lives.
I can never understand how important my interactions effect others. I truly believe what I give out will come back to me. I related this idea last night to a friend, how this Karma that we all emit is like a really powerful magnet in our hand. If we wave this magnet over a bunch of smaller magnet resting on a a table, the magnets will re-arrange themselves so that the polarity of the poles are attracted to the corresponding side.
I have decided to meet with as many people as I can and remove the excuses why I am too “busy” to meet someone for a one on one. It reminds me of Yes Man (2008).
Thank you Kathleen Lapekas and Sed Sheffer for taking the time out of your busy life’s to meet with me! I learned so much from your insights! I also wanted to thank Anthony Christian for sharing this video http://youtu.be/rgE3NPV_d_A with Loretta Laroche and Rebecca A. McClure for introducing me to her life coaching daughter.
Take Care and God Bless!! HUGS – nealson

I’ve always been a fan of Superman. I can’t say that I really read the comics but I always found it fascinating that Clark Kent (Mild-mannered reporter for a great Metropolitan Newspaper) fights a never-ending battle for TRUTH. He goes about his daily life until Superman is needed.

There are many in this world that are ignorant, and from this ignorance are full of hate, drama and negativity. If we choose to allow it, these people with these forces inside of them that are helping to bring them down, will be able to bring us down as well.
Never let someone rain on your parade just because things in their lives aren’t as they want them to be. Instead use the light inside of you, the positive force that is moving forward, to help brighten someones dark world.
Keep in mind that the best way to lead is by example. Keep a humble cool head in everything that you do. Be positive in your thoughts, modest in your words, and an example with your actions. Though there will be those around you, who may not receive what you are doing, and may mock you, or try to weaken your resolve, keep in mind your dreams, and where you are going in life, and never let anyone or anything stop you from going there.
Today I heard the Parable called the “The allegory of the long spoons” according to Wikipedia it is a story originated from Rabbi Haim of Romshishok. The story goes as follows:
“A man has a dream: he dies and goes to hell.
While in hell the man notices there are many tables, and starving people are sitting all around the great tables. There is hot food to accommodate all tastes on the table. Nevertheless, people are starving. In hell, they’re starving with food torturing them right before their eyes.
While all this food is right before them, each person is starving to death. Each person has a six-foot-long fork in his left hand, and a six-foot-long spoon in the other hand. The people in hell cannot get to the delicious food, because the forks reach beyond their mouths. Forks are too long. Spoons are too big.
The next night, the man dreams of going to heaven.
When he gets to heaven he sees tables as far as the eyes can see. The tables are full of hot, wonderful food. Now the man is very curious, for he sees that each believer has a six-foot-long fork in his left hand, and a six-foot-long spoon in the other hand. It’s beginning to look like the same dream all over again!
Yet, there’s a difference. All the people here are content and satisfied and happy. Then, he understood why. In heaven, as they were seated at the table, each person fed the person on either side. The difference between heaven and hell was giving and love!”
You’re Part Of Everything (POWDER, 1995)
I watched the movie POWDER and would like to think we are all part of the same wholeness. My idea of this Divine “Glue” is GOD. (I’m kinda expanding from yesterdays topic.) I would love to live in a place where everyone just loves and never judges. ❤
Well it was movie night tonight and the boys and I watched EPIC. There was a quote in the movie that just make me start to think…. so I turned to the internet.
“Now scientific and other innovative findings are corroborating what many ancient texts, philosophies, and even religions have been stating for thousands of years that there is a measurable yet unseen connection between human beings and all life. How is this possible if we can’t detect it with our five senses? We’d all agree that we can’t see radio and TV waves, yet we hear the sounds or see the images when these signals reach the receiving devices in our homes. Most of us have experienced synchronicity …we think of someone out of the blue, and then voila the phone rings. In that moment, we become the receiver of that “wave” of information. These ideas of us all “being one” and being able to transmit and receive messages or energies from one another can influence situations, relationships, our health, and more.” from http://www.gdnfo.org

I have no doubt that there is so much more to the universe than we will ever know. All I’m trying to do is create ripples that inspire others to ACTIVELY live their life, acknowledge the wonders in it, and give gratitude for all that we will never understand.
