Better to Receive then Give

It has always been said it is better to give than to receive. This however, may not be quite true. So for many of us, have spent our lives thinking that we should almost always be giving and never receiving as “giving” is always the right thing to do. Your new understanding is, it is better to receive then give. Why am I saying such a thing? Let’s look at it. What does it mean to receive? It is to be open and available to absorb from the giver. “As many as received Him he gave them the power to become…”

Receiving is something some of us don’t do very well. We do not open ourselves up to being a receptacle and sometimes it’s because of what we were taught. That it is better to give than to receive. However, you cannot give what you do not have so at some point you must have received it in order to give it.

You must receive seeds to bear fruits. This is true. No matter what it is that you have determined that you need to live your best life. It will have no power in your life until you know how to receive it. When you receive you activate blessings in your life.
None of things we are seeking for our lives such as;
Love
Joy
Peace
Happiness
Kindness
Meekness
Gentleness
Long-suffering
Prosperity
will happen for us until we have the Power to Receive them!
This power is knowing that we have the right and at the authority to receive the blessings. The “catch” is to know when it comes to you and being able to receive and embrace it.

Life

Life is your existence. How do you navigate this road. It is a journey and not a destination. It is a work in progress with everyday being a new opportunity to measure and correct. An opportunity to be a better human every day. So let’s take a look at life; It is
Love
Initiate
Forgive
Enjoy

To enjoy life, learn to love;

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Initiate what you want in life. If it is change, initiate it. You must make the first move towards what it is that you want for you. No one else will. Having success in life is a function of initiating the things you want for your life. Initiate should always be in the forefront of your brain.

Forgive, your life will be fantastic and you will always have peace. Forgive, this is cathartic for you. It is not for others, it is for you. Forgive, it brings you release. It allows you not to carry residues from bad experiences or relationships. Forgive, it is a best life ingredient.

Enjoy! Life was meant to be enjoyed. Enjoy it to its fullest. Live out your dreams and enjoy. Make your bucket list your “living life” list. Live in the moment.

Love a very Powerful Emotion

Today is the day when love is talked about by almost everyone. Love is a very powerful emotion and its feeling can propel one to the sky. The feeling of love or loving something or someone for some people, rearranges the way they see and do things. It just does “something” for the brain. Nothing is wrong with that. What is this love? God is love. Nature is love. The universe is love.

Love is also a natural law in the universe. It oozes it everyday, if you are paying attention. The sun rising each morning, warming the earth, and setting in the evening is love. Seeds growing and flowers blooming is love. The rain pouring down to water the earth is love. The snowflakes falling from the sky is love. The mountain standing tall and not falling over is an act of love. The rivers running to the ocean is love. The fishes swimming in the sea is love. The wind blowing manifests love. So love is everywhere around you.

Start practicing looking for love in all things. Yes, it is there. Start with you. Are you showing love in all you do. Maybe not, but this is the day to start working on it. It is never too late. When you start practicing love, you whole Being will change. You will start believing in miracles as the changes unfold in your life, and there will be no other way to explain them. Great people will be drawn to you as your aura sends love ahead of you where ever you trod. So this and everyday forward live love, think love, breathe love, eat love, sleep love, demand love, give love, walk in love, talk in love, correct in love and discipline in love. Let your motto for be LOVE.

Peace

Peace is most important to all of us. All of us want to live a life where we feel in control whether or not we can verbalize this. We all want to live a life where we feel we have peace. We tend to get frazzled when things seem out of control or not so peaceful. Rightfully so, as peace is one ingredient to living your best life. Having peace is a blessing and it brings self assurance. It allows us to focus on the things that are important to us and not the sideshows to our lives. It allows us to find our purpose driven lives. Having peace is good for your biology. It brings your blood pressure down. It soothes and calms your heart. It brings your spirit in alignment with your body. How do we find peace?

Life as a Coffee Pot

unnamedLife as a coffee pot- How is your brew? What kind of coffee pot are you? Do you brew your coffee very quickly? Do you brew to various strengths? Your life is like a coffee pot and your interactions are the coffee within the pot. The question is, how are you utilized? Are you used every day for brewing coffee?  Do you get refilled once your content depletes? This is the same for your life. (more…)

Past, Present, Future

Past present and future are three words that drive our daily conversation, but do they really exist? Let’s visit them. The Past! Oh how we spend so much time re-living the past when it does not exist anymore. We must rewire our thinking so that our lives can be full. The past used to be. It is no more. We no longer have it. That space is now a former space and is gone. Yet we spend a good portion of our lives trying to hold on to this concept. Unfortunately, while we are doing this we are not present in the now moment.
