Doing the same thing in life and  eating the same way will lead to the same

results. Many, myself included have gotten complacent and settle for this

mediocre way of feeling in life. A good 20 adult years of living the same

complacent lifestyle was enough for me and I have been changing ever

since. There was a logical progression based upon much trial and error,

and experience that lead me to veganism. I do not go in this direction

because I did not like the taste of pizza, or the taste of a hamburger,

or cheese. In fact I have always enjoyed the taste of these foods and I had

enjoyed many others, cakes, dorittos and a host of synthetic chemical

foods in the past. I have been fortunate and through hard work and

experience have been able to realize what foods it takes to feel the best

in life. It is beyond amazing what we do not know of ourselves and our health

and well being until we try something different until, we take a taste so to

speak of how we could feel if we put different foods into our bodies. I know

with the holidays upon us this may be the last thing upon peoples mind is diet.

It is understandable but many start thinking of it soon after the holidays when

we feel off and a bit ill from our overindulgences. I encourage all to enjoy their

Christmas and Holidays in anyway they are accustomed to if they so wish or

see them in a different way if they wish. The thing is I would like you to know

that you do deserve the best of you and you can have it and you can change.

Believe me if I can you can! It is hard work at times but you have this one

life to live in which you deserve to be able to feel your best! Give yourself the gift

of lifting yourself up to your highest form of self, health and wellness!

You will not be disappointed!  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All !!!

Felt there was always more to say.

But how could I of?

But when should I of?

What words could have prolonged life.

What words could have made him see.

After all, it happened how it was supposed be.

Saw the error though.

Saw the cure.

What was it that caused it?

It couldn’t be fixed by the same way that got him there.

Thought hard.

Prayed.

Pitched in, felt the weight of his heart, fear and pain.

Dug in.

Gave strength.

A man always has a choice.

The choice is always his.

Giving all you have, is all you can do.

When it is our time we give into and accept

our true strength which is our release and our surrender.

We know when it is our time.

When we are to reach out of time and accept eternity.

When we have left the physical life we are of the mind,

where we have always been and will be eternally ever after.

Many times if not in all cases if we choose to notice in ones passing

the connections we have had become even stronger then they were

in the physical plain.

We are one and have always been.

Our love runs deep.

I always felt there was more to say.

Yet, there is always more to feel and understand beyond what words

can describe.

Give a smile!

Share some love and kindness with those you run into.

Do this often, it works wonders into your life.

Be real with it, not a thrown on smile, not an “act” of kindness.

Sincerity is the key, care about others, smile from your soul, connect with others.

There are times when others may not smile back they may look at you with hard looks or grief.

This is ok, they need it more than the ones that smile back .

Do not take it personally, they are in a bad place at the time.

Still keep smiling!

Do not be quick to judge or identify someone as this or that type of person just by looking at them.

Any one you encounter is more like you than they are different.

We all bleed, want to be loved, have suffered, are alive now and will pass away from our physical form someday.

Life is to short not to be happy!

We have a choice of how we can feel in any given moment.

Choosing to share your love with a smile between souls will exponentially grow

throughout all!

Give a smile!

To be the best competitor you must realize that there

is no competition outside of yourself.

In all sport or game and every sport, team sport or not.

Comparison and thought projection as means to defeat

opponents is but a loss to you as well, no matter the final score.

One can win on the score board and still have loss.

There is no such thing as defeat if you raise yourself

to your highest standards. Defeat happens to those that

place all their value in results rather than the moment.

To win at any cost will cost you very much in terms of

reaching your true strength. To realize giving the best of you

to your sport is just that, will help you rise above any competition.

This may not always guarantee a win in the final score yet, you will

never suffer loss as well. You will have gained from your experience.

Persistance in your practice with high standards and ethical righteousness

will allow for miracles to happen for you within your practice and sport.

These miracles will open the door to triumph and victories for true champions.

The end results are not as important as the means.

In the very end the just rewards will be rewarded to those that have just means.

Be your best!

 

Rise above your ways,

and learn to rest.

 

Pass each test!

 

Lives lessons will teach,

let the love manifest.

 

The ones that are scared

will try to share their fear.

They will try to control you

and take you and scold you.

 

So lift up your head!

We don’t fear the dead.

We’re way to alive,

to do what they said.

 

We know of the truth

as knowledge is clear.

Their lies and deceit

will leave them in fear.

 

No enemies here!

They are not in my mind.

I treat all fairly,

honestly and  kind.

In the moment, nothing is ever as bad as you make it seem.

You are breathing right?

You are alive right?

You have much to be grateful for then.

Decisions that change your life are made within the moment.

To not continue with a bad habit is a decision made over and

over within the moment when it arises. It is not forever that you

need worry about. Now in the present is the only time which you

need address. You need not jump into making poor decisions.

You can ponder it as much or as little as you want yet, you truly

always know the answer and what is best for you to do.

Making the right decision for you is what you need to do.

Not harming you or anyone else is the decision to always make.

Once you make the right decision more and more within the

moment it becomes easier and you build strength and courage

to do what is right for you and all.

There is but the moment to do what needs to be done.

Live the life you deserve by doing whats best for all.

You can never take back a bad decision.

Holding off until you make a good decision is much better

than making a fast poor decision. The more we practice

being mindful in our decision making in the moment the better

life becomes for all.

 

Have a Great Day!  Smile and Make a Difference!  : )

Learn your lessons or they will keep being thrown in your face.

Get fed up with whatever it is that is holding yourself back from learning.

Once you learn the small amount of pleasure provided does not outweigh

the pain it causes to continue doing the behavior it’s time to take action.

This was my thought process that helped me unlearn some very painful

self behaviors. I  still to this day am working on my diet which to

most would be almost perfect.

But I do not settle for almost.

I deserve the best as do you!

Slowly but surely deny the urges to do unhealthy behaviors to yourself

by rationalizing the outcome being more painful than the initial

delusion of pleasure they provide.

Realize the truth in this.

Do not feel guilty if you backslide because this is part of the

process of learning(or unlearning in many cases).

Do persist and know that it will get better and better with time…

It takes considerably less time to break unhealthy habits

then it did to make them.

Find solace in this as you persist…

You know what to do!

Now do it!

You deserve the best!

Silence was given to me from a friend of mime.

With eyes wide open he dropped no dime.

As some saw his savory as a naive form of slavery.

He knew with such eyes he was saved from such lies.

Paradise bound,

with love all around,

in a world of pleasure and plenty.

Shhhh….

Patients…

No need to respond.

If those fight below,

you can sail beyond.

The choice of voice,

the choice of reason,

the choice of doubt

is faiths ultimate treason.

The tree of knowledge

knows all and is clear.

If you wait for your answers…

you will find them all there…

Feeding time and there’s a fork in the road.

For what you feed is how you will grow.

For one has hunger, doubt and fear,

as the other is free, unknown and clear.

What do you feed?

Do you want to know?

Which way is easier?

How would you know?

False sense of stability laden with insecurity,

taught this ability forgot about humility.

Outside of thinking do you know?

Is this how the garden grows?

The sun shines in and tells me so,

it lays its light on my very soul.

So how would you get from fear to there?

You’d need different thought than which you adhered.

“Oh, different thought but thats not me!”

Is this how you’re suppose to be?

Go back,

Go back,

to when you knew,

just how special it was to be you!

We must age to a certain degree but at what rate that we remain youthful is of our own choices and doing to a large degree.

 

Surprisingly, we can also re-establish many of our youthful qualities that we may have thought were lost for good.

 

The human body is remarkable resilient in its ability to repair and restore when given the right chemical make-up to do so.

 

It  is truly unbelievable to witness the transition within yourself yet, I myself am living proof of just that.

 

I once thought that I was old and for all practical purposes, I was.

 

Overweight, smoking 2 packs a day, drinking alcohol way to much, eating unwholesome foods, lungs were coughing and wheezing through the night.

 

I have told the story before, yet it is worth repeating.

 

I am not telling you this to boast or brag for that is not who I am.

 

Back when I was a drinking, smoking, junk food eating fool, sure enough bragging and boasting and thinking I was better and smarter than others was

precedent in that cruel world I lived in.

 

Oh, I tell you it’s hard when all you have is that ego strong as all hell to hold on to as your only strength.

 

It’s hard to see when your in that position. From that view point, life becomes askew, down seems up and up seems down.

 

Many may not get what I am saying here or many may not want to understand such words of defiance against their own egos.

 

Who you think you are does not have to be you.

 

This is worth repeating perhaps, in a slightly different way.

 

What you have become does not have to be you.

 

You do not have to continue in the direction you are going.

 

Having lived an entirely different way then, than I do now has changed the world I see before my eyes.

 

The world I live in now was incomprehensible to me back when I was old some years back.

 

It would have been a severe injustice to myself if I would never have broken free into who I am now.

 

I think we all are in need of improvements, myself included.

 

I am not done and there now.

 

There is no done and there.

 

There is no mission accomplished.

 

This is life it is an ever learning experience.

 

When we refuse to learn, when we refuse to grow, when we refuse try new things, this is when we start to die.

 

This is when we get old.

 

Our bodies will age with time, but if we decide to give them wholesome food and break away from bad habits youth will be restored.

 

Be young again, you owe it to yourself no matter what age you are!
