Awakening: The Steak and the Sizzle

Living my Awakening: Choosing Actions Motivated by Love

This week, I deeply desired to know what was behind this feeling of NOTHING that was inside me. I’ve made so many changes in my life, after my spiritual awakening, yet I still have days like this.

It seems that a big bubble of emptiness is in the way of me moving forward, stepping forth, and reclaiming my ‘mojo’. What’s in the bubble does not feel like doubt and it does not feel like insecurity. If feels like a great big space between my self-confidence, and taking action.

I feel confident, and I am well studied. But what I wish is to feel comfortable at the top of this cliff of who I have been, before I jump to who I am now, and who I am going to be.

How Full is Your Stadium?

One day a DREAM gave me a darn good reason to want to change                           

For years I fondly held the memory of my childhood dreams.

Growing up, how I wished the world was different. But in my dreams, there existed a place where people lived peacefully and took care of each other, had a true democracy and used advanced technologies. Yes I loved Star Trek! My dreams had other planets in them and I traveled between the stars.

And I didn’t think those dreams were going to come true.

But I still wanted to change the world.

I had a dog. And he was awesome, magnificent.

And he was my best friend.

My dog was a German Shepherd, and he represented the best of me, of training him, being taught by him, having a relationship with him, of taking care of him, of him looking after me, together.

He amazed my friends.

He was an Ambassador for dogs, and for German Shepherds.

His gift seemed to be to convert people who had had bad experiences with his “kind of dog” into people who liked a German Shepherd…. Him.

He loved to lick children’s faces, to roll over and let them slowly approach, so that they could learn that big dogs could be kind. Continue reading I HAD A DOG, Setting Your Course, Recovering from a Fall, and What Unconditional LOVE is About

I’m back to MY THEME SONG from a few weeks ago, BUDAPEST by George Ezra, and that line, “give me one good reason why I should never make a change”.

This Post is about the DAY that a DREAM gave me a darn good reason to want to change.

I’ve been holding a dream in my heart since childhood of who I am and that dream was always a secret, because I didn’t think it would come true. Continue reading THE STADIUM, CHILDHOOD DREAMS, ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT, KNOWING IT’S TIME TO CHANGE And SAVING THE WORLD

People go their own ways and that’s okay. Continue reading LETTING GO OF THE MOVIE VERSION — A SPIRITUAL WAY to do a SOCIAL CONTRACT or BUSINESS CONTRACT part 3 of 3
