Law of Physics

The Law of Physics states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Easily understood, but what form or nature does that reaction take? Who decides? When it comes to our interactions with others (and ourselves), we decide, and there are many options to choose from. They include a knee-jerk, emotional response, or a calm, logic-driven, mental response, remembering that everything happens for a reason. What reaction is beneficial to you, to others?

When facing turmoil, real or perceived, try to remain calm, relaxed and evaluate the situation. What are your options and what are the possible outcomes of those actions? Keeping in mind that everything happens for a good reason and without recent turmoil there would be no impetus to focus on a better life.

We can’t control the words or actions of others, but we can control our reaction to them. Make the reaction decision based on the premise that it is an opportunity to recognize the presence of love and peace where you thought it was void. Use the situation as a learning experience to better yourself. Do not pass on the opportunity to acknowledge a life lesson. When the situation isn’t measuring up to what you want, first, make a decision about what you would rather have. Then, plan, and put it into action, await in eager anticipation as it is brought to you.

Situations are not tests,  but rather opportunities, opportunities to realize and experience a positive life lesson.

Make your equal and opposite reaction an intelligent mental choice and an opportunity realized. The choice is yours.

Blessed Be!

Just the Usual Miracles

Taking in the small joys of each day expands our feeling of being connected with this world and beyond. That simple act is often extremely difficult. We often grow indifferent to those “small” miracles since they continuously happen, second-to second, and are not limited to one small corner of our world. Look out your backyard,  look in the mirror. Miracles abound! We come to expect then and take them for granted.

It is, or should be, these every day aspects that bring us the most joy. We are more apt to appreciate and full heartily grasp the experience of living if we take the time and effort to acknowledge them. It takes little time, little effort to acknowledge these wonders, but the rewards are immeasurable. Look for the beauty, small acts of kindness and laughter and what may,  at first, seem like the ordinary daily happenings, become miraculous events….birds fly, the sun shines, human life is created and sustained….Look at the details. Ask yourself how,  why, when did this all start?

When you awake, set the intention to notice more joy in the world. You will find it, small and big, and it will fill your life in multi-dimensions. The sound of laughter, birds singing, water falling, ocean surf crashing,  and yes, even the dog barking, are all delightful miracles happening daily in our world.

You will find your day and your life filled with more joy when you make a practice of keeping your eyes, ears and all your senses open and cognizant of the wonders around you. It’s one of the best natural remedies around and definitely the least expensive. Start today and with each passing day you will find these miracles abound, bringing you a deeper appreciation for everything the Universe has given our lives.

Smile, for you, too, are a miracle!

Blessed Be!

Rich Or Poor - How Rich Are You?

Rich Or Poor - How Rich Are You?
It All Depends on the way You Look At Things

One day a rich father took his son on a trip to the country
with the firm purpose to show him how poor people
can be. They spent a day and a night on
the farm of a very poor family.

When they got back from their trip the father
asked his son, "How was the trip?"

"Very good Dad!"

"Did you see how poor people can be?"
the father asked.


"And what did you learn?"

The son answered, "I saw that we have a dog at
home, and they have four. We have a pool that
reaches to the middle of the garden, they have
a creek that has no end.We have imported
lamps in the garden, they have the stars.
Our patio reaches to the front yard,
they have a whole horizon."

When the little boy was finishing,
his father was speechless.

His son added,
"Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are!"
See, it all depends on one's persepective, how we look at things. I hope we realize how fortunate we are in having what we have.
