Inner Journey:


“What we see depends mainly on what we look for.”
— Sir John Lubbock

Throughout the day, continually ask yourself about your underlying motivation. Why are you doing what you are doing?

Is it for selfish, manipulative or fearful reasons? Is it for honest service with integrity? Maybe you’ll discover you don’t know. Perhaps you will see that much of your activity lacks purpose.

This is a great way to become more conscious. Your intention and motives are fundamental to the results you will receive. Set high intentions and your life will blossom.

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
— Oliver Wendell Holmes


A Note from the Universe

I have it on good account that you will soon be called a number of inflammatory names…

Lucky, blessed, chosen, gifted, destined, favored, special, and perhaps, most outrageously, “not like the rest of us.”

Let’s give them something to talk about.

Like me,

You may have the best of intentions today but it won’t be easy to stick to any of them. There’s a lot of randomness in the air and you won’t have very much control over anything. Don’t let this lull you into becoming thoughtless or not caring about what you’re doing. Do what you can and save some energy for tomorrow when things might be smoother.
