Live Now

Pets tend to live in the now, do you? Could you be more present? Could you feel more deeply, love more strongly, reach into the recesses of your being to feel more true about all you do? Can you be more joyful? What did you forget to feel? What have you protected yourself from feeling, because you are afraid of being hurt? Today, reach into the recesses of yourself to be present to your life. Touch excellence.

Gentle Happiness

It might not be loud. When happiness shows up, it might be quiet. It might be a gentle smile. It might show up as a warm look across a room. It might be a song on the radio. Happiness might be gentle.

It’s Not That Big of a Bridge After All

The bridge between you and happiness is shorter than you think. Every time you picture a gigantic bridge with happiness WAY over there, you deepen the distance between yourself and that feeling of being perfectly happy and content. Lose the bridge. Shift from “wanting” to “having.”

Cherish All that is Precious to You

Cherish all that is precious to you. Cherish with a renewed commitment. Look with new eyes of love. As you express love, everything else falls away like a cloak that hid the true beauty of those around you.

What is stopping you from stepping into your brightest self? Have you obstacles that are conscious or unconscious? One-by-one identify obstacles and systematically blast them out of the universe.

Feel Good

Take time to feel good about your life. Feel good about small things, and feel good about big things. Take time to express that, out loud, to those you care about. Nourish your family – blood related or good friends – with eyes of that sincere joy in being.

Yes, Help

You know how sometimes you get this feeling “I should help them with that” about a person or a child or a parent? And then you let it go, you let your critical mind deny the opportunity to help someone else because you aren’t sure how the offer will be received? Today, if you get that sense of wanting to help someone, offer help. Stop and just be there for people in your life who may not be as fortunate as you are, or who may need the gift that you have to share. Don’t be afraid!

Reach Higher

You might not be reaching high enough. If you aren’t dreaming big enough, the energy of the dream doesn’t catpult you into action Just wanting to get by doesn’t feel the same as clearly picturing the dream life, dream relationships, and starry wonder in your eyes. Go higher. Ask for more.

Zen (Version 3)

When someone is going through something difficult, they may lash out. Stay in your own happiness. It does not help them for you to feel badly. It does not help them if you react with anger or lashing back. Your best gift is to stay in your calm place, and let them work it out, and come back to you. Compassion.

Don’t be afraid you’re not going fast enough. Don’t be afraid you’re not happy enough, or you’re not learning quickly enough. Everything happens at its right time, and you are in the right place, right now, and you are doing beautifully. Take a small step. Lots of small steps make giant leaps.

Unwrap Beauty

Focus on something beautiful inside of each person you see. Let go of some old baggage. If it is a parent, a child, or someone perhaps you have known a long time, forget all of your memories. See if you can see that person in the light of love shining on them. See if you can seek out the most amazing or special quality that person brings. Inside of each person lies a gift. Unwrap that for the holidays.
