A moment of insight
Influences 1000 lifetimes.
It occurred to me that through any type of self development we change in a deep, profound and cellular level. Even if your outside doesn’t reflect the change. In your being you know you have changed. And that is priceless.
Na mo Amitoufo
There is no such thing as failure.
There is only information.
If something doesn’t work out there is important information there.
Don’t put emotion into it.
Just detach from whatever the situation is.
Stop agonizing and create distance.
Do not berate yourself.
Don’t project or make it worse that what is.
If your mind is racing tell it to stop immediately.
Distance will allow you to see what the information is.
From there you can decide which way to go.
If we were standing in your physical shoes, that would be our dominant quest: Entertaining Yourself, pleasing Yourself, connecting with Yourself, being Yourself, enjoying Yourself, loving Yourself. Some say, “Well, Abraham you teach selfishness.” And we say, yes we do, yes we do, yes we do, because unless you are selfish enough to reach for that connection, you don’t have anything to give anyone, anyway. And when you are selfish enough to make that connection—you have an enormous gift that you give everywhere you are.

Attitude + Emotions + Communication = Relationship

When times are difficult we tend to seek support from others around us. If they don’t give us the support we expect we get disappointed and sigh off as being UN-supportive.
Challenge your expectations. Does the person have the capacity to give you the support you need at this time? Is it reasonable to expect constant, full support? Can you redirect your support needs elsewhere?Is this an opportunity for you to become more self sufficient and self reliant?
When you become more self sufficient and self reliant , you may just find others around you offering more support.
“In the world of Darkness, to Loose is to Find, and to Find is to Loose. To Remember that Pure Light is found in the Depths of Shadow, and that with out Darkness There Is No Light. For Within this World there must Always Be a Balance. To Find Yourself is to Loose Sumtin Dear To You..and to Find what is Dear to you, it’s easy To Loose Yourself. Always Keep the Light within your Heart Close..And the Darkness that Cradles it Even Closer..The Further u walk into the Realm of Shadow..The Brighter the Light in Your Heart Shines to Show You The Way”
Here’s a poem by my wonderful nephew Chris. Hope you enjoy his emotional and intuitive message.
“Our two Hearts will NeVer Grow AparT
Tho Circumstances can Drive us To different sides of the world, Our Hearts Forever intertwined in the Battle Of the EverLasting Heart of Pure Darkness..Both Seeking for the True Light Hidden Deep within the Shadows. And while we will Always Be Connected..We Shall Never get lost in the darkness…For even wen we cannot see our way…We Will Always See The Path To Each Other Hearts..And the CallinG of Each Others Souls.”
There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer.
There is no disease that enough love will not heal.
No door that enough love will not open.
No gulf that enough love will not bridge.
No wall that enough love will not throw down.
And no sin that enough love will not redeem.
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble.
How hopeless the outlook.
How muddled the tangle.
How great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
And if you could love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful person in the world.

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow:
You are not wrong who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand–
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep–while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
The Only Constant Is Change
