paradox of our time Make time for yourself

The paradox of our time

in history is that
we have taller buildings but shorter tempers;
wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less;
we buy more but enjoy less

We have bigger houses and smaller families,
more conveniences, but less time;
we have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much,
spend too recklessly,
laugh too little,
drive too fast,
get too angry,
stay up too late, get up too tired,
read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life,
we’ve added years to life not life to years.

Our Relationship with the Present Moment

The Present Moment As a Loved One

Have you ever thought of the present moment as a loved one?

I’ve been working with this thought lately, and I find it helpful when I’m feeling rushed, distracted, worried, upset, frustrated, anxious, sad, irritated(which is a lot it seems).

Let’s think for a moment about our relationship with this loved one we might call The Present Moment …

  • We barely pay attention to it, thinking instead of what we have to do later, things we’re worried about, etc.
  • If it’s boring or uncomfortable, we habitually turn away from it and go to distractions, rejecting the Present Moment.
  • We judge it as good or bad, pleasant or uncomfortable, and dislike it if it isn’t behaving the way we want.
  • We don’t accept it as it is, but want more, are worried we’re missing out, think we should be doing something else.
  • When we’re…

16 Ways to Get Motivated When You’re In a Slump

Taking some of my own advice!

Change The Code

Even the most motivated of us — you, me, Tony Robbins — can feel unmotivated at times. In fact, sometimes we get into such a slump that even thinking about making positive changes seems too difficult.

But it’s not hopeless: with some small steps, baby ones in fact, you can get started down the road to positive change.

Yes, I know, it seems impossible at times. You don’t feel like doing anything. I’ve been there, and in fact I still feel that way from time to time(yesterday!!!). You’re not alone. But I’ve learned a few ways to break out of a more serious slump, and we’ll take a look at those today.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.

Change The Code

Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

I am in the process of reading a book called Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind

Ever wonder why you repeat the same negative thoughts in your head? Why you keep coming back for more from hurtful family members, friends, or significant others? Why you keep falling into the same detrimental habits or limiting attitudes―even when you know that they are going to make you feel bad?

Dr. Joe Dispenza has spent decades studying the human mind―how it works, how it stores information, and why it perpetuates the same behavioral patterns over and over. In the acclaimed film “What the Bleep Do We Know!?” he began to explain how the brain evolves―by learning new skills, developing the ability to concentrate in the midst of chaos, and even healing the body and the psyche.
