Children are Amazing

Standard

As we grow up, we seem to lose that child-like spirit within us. But children can definitely bring us back to where we once were before the world took hold of us.  We can learn a lot from children.  They are always in the present moment.  When I am with my four-year grandson, he reminds me that life is lots of fun and not to be so serious. ❤child2

 

What’s on Your Bucket List?

Standard

What is important to you in life? Is it being famous, owning a big house and a fancy new car, or maybe having a large family?  Are there specific goals you would like to achieve such as writing a book, earning a college degree, owning a successful business, weighing a certain amount, etc.? Many of us have met our goals. Are you satisfied, or are you ready to tackle another one? Some of us create bucket lists of things that we feel the need to do before the end of life. People are jumping out of airplanes, surfing 10-foot waves, skiing from the highest mountaintops, etc. Do these things satisfy the ego or the spirit? The #1 goal on everyone’s list should be self-improvement, because then everything else will fall into place. I can honestly say there is nothing more fulfilling and gratifying in life than improving yourself mentally and spiritually and helping others do the same. You will have such a peace within and clearly understand that the things in life you didn’t accomplish won’t really matter.

Spirituality vs Religion

Standard

The essence of who you are is your spirit, soul, inner being, or life-force.  Spirituality is when you experience a direct connection of your inner most being with the divine power of the universe.

Organized religion is when you follow someone else’s collection of beliefs, customs, and/or rituals.

You can practice spirituality without belonging to a specific religion; you can also be religious but not spiritual; and lastly, you can certainly practice spirituality while belonging to an organized religion.  I recommend doing whatever keeps you aligned with the divine power and on the right path in life.

Meditate vs Medicate

Standard

Meditation and medication sound alike and are similar in meaning.  Both are used for the healing and renewal process of a human being.  However medication is a substance absorbed into the body, while meditation is a natural method accessing the mind, body, and spirit.  Meditation is a practice that anyone can do even young children.  It has many health benefits, and it’s totally free!
