You never again have to believe that circumstances outside of you control your life. You never again have to believe that it is wrong to want. You never again have to believe that some great power outside yourself is pulling the strings, or that anyone or anything other than you is in control. You never again have to be afraid of "them" or "it," no... Continue reading

Remembering Louise Hay, One Positive Thought at a Time When I heard the news it made me think back to the days when her positive, self-loving, you-can-do-it, life-changing philopshy hit the new age scene in the eighties. Back then, we believed we could make wishes that would come true. We believed we could change our beliefs and thoughts and, as a result, our life experience.... Continue reading

Years after college my beloved physics professor, Sheridan Simon, told me that the bane of his existence was delivering a simply beautiful lecture on the physics of black holes or quantum mechanics, then opening the floor to questions knowing he had done some of his best work, only to have the student in the second row raise his hand and ask, "Will this be on...

In over a dozen years as a stress consultant, one of the most pervasive and destructive mental tendencies I've seen is that of focusing on what we want instead of what we have. It doesn't seem to make any difference how much we have; we just keep expanding our list of desires, which guarantees we will remain dissatisfied. The mind-set that says "I'll be happy...

"You don’t owe your family affection if they are being abusive and treating you poorly. I know that it’s so difficult not to feel guilty for holding back that love. I know that there are people who will tell you that you should just grin and bear it because they’re family. People who will shame you for the way you feel. People who will try... Continue reading

The idea of watching your thoughts might sound odd at first, but you will soon see that this is a very accurate description of a very useful tool. And once you get the hang of watching your thoughts, it will become one of the most powerful tools available to you. This technique has been around for as long as people have been meditating. Watching your... Continue reading

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned... Continue reading

Dear Trisha, I've got something to say to you, and I hope you will listen with an open heart. Don't be so worried about what everybody else thinks of you, and don't think your happiness depends on someone else. I want you to just trust yourself. Trust that if you take care of yourself on the inside, follow your instincts, and let yourself evolve naturally,... Continue reading

To love others you must love yourself. You can only give to others what you have yourself. This is especially true of love. You cannot give what you have not learned and experienced. Since love is not a thing, it is not lost when given. You can offer your love completely to hundreds of people and still retain the same love you had originally. It... Continue reading

You've heard it many times, so often in fact that it has become a cliché: Live in the present. The now is all there is. Forget about the past; it's over. Don't worry about the future; there is only today. While these are familiar refrains, the truth is that living in the now is an elusive activity for virtually everyone. It may be easy to...

About ninety per cent of the things in our lives are right and about ten percent are wrong. If we want to be happy, all we have to do is to concentrate on the ninety per cent that are right and ignore the ten per cent that are wrong. If we want to be worried and bitter and have stomach ulcers, all we have to... Continue reading

We use the word "love" but we have no more understanding of love than we do of anger or fear or jealousy or even joy, because we have seldom investigated what that state of mind is. What are the feelings we so quickly label as love? For many what is called love is not lovely at all but is a tangle of needs and desires,... Continue reading

Much has been said about "living in the moment." Virtually every spiritual teacher throughout history has suggested this solution. In fact, this may be one of the oldest and wisest pieces of advice for living a happier life. Yet, despite all the emphasis on this advice, very few people seem able to implement this critical principle in their daily lives. I believe this seemingly simple... Continue reading

We need to take time to work because it is the price of success. We need to take time to think because it is the source of power and the key to making good decisions. We need to take time to play because it is the secret of youth, and a life of all work does make a person dull. We need to take time... Continue reading

Do you ever feel that life is just one long routine day after another? You wake up, take a shower, brush your teeth, get dressed, head off to work, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Well, if one more day of the "same ol' stuff" makes you feel cranky, it might be time for a spontaneity break. Now I know that the idea of scheduling... Continue reading

How do you feel right now? Do you feel good? Do you feel bad? What are your current emotions? What is your gut feeling? Would you like to feel better? Then reach for a better feeling or thought. If you feel bad in any way—sad, grumpy, bitter, resentful, angry, fearful, guilty, depressed, jealous, critical, and so on—then you’ve temporarily lost your connection to the flow... Continue reading

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee. A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it...

Stop All Criticism. Criticism never changes a thing. Refuse to criticize yourself. Accept yourself exactly as you are. Everybody changes. When you criticize yourself, your changes are negative. When you approve of yourself, your changes are positive. Forgive Yourself. Let the past go. You did the best you could at the time with the understanding, awareness, and knowledge that you had. Now you are growing... Continue reading

When she was 80 years old, my Aunt Lizzie walked to the mirror and said, with tears in her eyes, "Oh! Look at me, I’m so old, so ugly!" How lucky she was, as she could still walk to the mirror, and see herself! PUT JOY IN YOUR LIFE! No matter how old you are, you can enjoy your world, you can learn to control... Continue reading

I've learned that if someone says something unkind about me, I must live so that no one will believe it. I've learned that you can make some one's day by simply sending them a little note. I've learned that the greater a person's sense of guilt, the greater his or her need to cast blame on others. I've learned that no matter what happens, or... Continue reading

Your Mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick, the fragrance of life itself. She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well, she’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that... Continue reading
