Peace Today

This beautiful movie has been created by the musical artistry of Faith Rivera from her song Peace Today.

 We teach people how to treat us. -TCIM

It is imperative then, that we teach Peace. 

To teach peace, we must be the compassionate, understanding, caring, courageous and kind living examples of what humanity can be.

Please take a few minutes to meditate upon visions of peace and then pass it along to those who will appreciate receiving it from you.

Together we can make a difference...

Bob Procter - Repetition is the mother of all learning

We all want to be successful in life, most of us anyways. Success is defined in many ways and looks different from one person to the next, but it is something we all crave and dream about constantly.

With maybe a few exceptions none of us are born into Success. Success is LEARNED!

And since Success is learned, it is something that you must practice and work on every day.

Watch today's video as my good friend Bob Proctor talks about the importance of repetition and then I'll show you a learning system that will get you across your own personal success "Finish Line".

cup cake

First of all, anybody who know me personally knows that I just LOVE chocolate. Love love LOVE chocolate. :)

Well, last month I found myself in an interesting situation where I felt deeply like God was working through me.

I was at away for the weekend attending a spiritual class and I had just finished lunch. There was a cupcake place nearby, and I found myself really wanting a chocolate cupcake.

Upon arriving at the cupcake shop, there were a lot of cupcakes.

(sort of)

See, the woman head of me bought a couple dozen cupcakes, including the last of the...


There had been several. Then in a flash right before my eyes, they were gone!

Fortunately there were a few mini cupcakes left, so I bought two: One red velvet, and of course one chocolate. :)

As I walked outside, there was a homeless man sitting on a bench.

Not only was he homeless, he was clearly mentally ill.  He looked up at me as though to ask for change, and though the words didn't quite come out right it was clear he was asking for help.

My heart opened and I felt so much compassion and I wanted to give him a little bit of money.

Except that my hands were full with a cupcake in each.

Rather than ignoring him...

And rather than fumbling with cupcakes and pockets and wallets to get him some change as I initially felt compelled to do...

I looked him heartfully in the eye and simply asked:

"Which one do you want?"

His reply...


Without hesitation, I handed it to him.

And the look of wonder in his eye...

And the childlike innocent joyful smile on his face...

Made it all worth it.

I was reminded of something that Nick Vujicic said when I heard him speak in Portland a few years ago:

"When God doesn't grant your miracles, remember you are the miracle he sent for somebody else."

To me, the cupcake was a small thing. To that man, it may have very well been a small miracle.

No Excuses

Your life is a matter of choice... you have the power to choose to take action.

It's not what people say or do to you... it's your self-talk that determines how you feel. It's not about them, it's about you.  You have the power to create the life you have always wanted. Choose to listen to yourself, not others!

Believe in yourself

Words are VERY careful what you allow to sink in to your own mental factory and be equally as careful when speaking to others, especially those you care about. Words can destroy just as easily as they can build up.

You can't score a goal sitting on the sidelines

After his first audition, a casting director told actor Sidney Poitier, “Why don’t you stop wasting people’s time and go out and become a dishwasher or something?” It was at that moment, recalls Poitier, that he decided to devote his life to acting. He wasn’t going to let someone else decide his life path.

“There’s nothing in the middle of the road, but yellow stripes and dead armadillo,” says Jim Hightower. Decide to do something now to make your life better. The choice is yours.

“My decision is maybe—and that’s final.” Is this you? Being decisive is essential for a successful life. If you deny yourself commitment, what will you do with your life? Every accomplishment, great or small, starts with a decision.

David Ambrose remarked, “If you have the will to win, you have achieved half your success; if you don’t, you have achieved half your failure.”

The moment you definitely commit yourself, change begins. All sorts of things happen to help you that never would have otherwise occurred. Kenneth Blanchard observed, “There is a difference between interests and commitment. When you are interested in doing something, you only do it when it is convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” Lack of decisiveness has caused more failures than lack of intelligence or ability.

Indecision often gives an advantage to the other person because they did their thinking beforehand. Helen Keller said, “Science may have found a cure for most evil; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all—the apathy of human beings.” Don’t leave a decision for tomorrow that needs to be made today.

Remember, don’t be a “middle-of-the-roader” because the middle of the road is the worst place to try to go forward. You can do everything you ought to do once you make a decision. Today, decide on your dream.

If we could see inside people's hearts - wow

Here is a profound look at life, in 4 minutes. This one will have you welling up with tears…
The camera wanders and shows the inner lives of people around us as they do their daily tasks. Most of it is set in a hospital, where there is so much worry, sadness, some joy, bad news, good news, no news, anxiety, fear -- just like our own lives...

We’ve all been there. We've all experienced at least one of these people’s lives, and that's what brings the message of this video so close to home.
We ALL have our stories. Others have theirs.  But we never really know, we don't fully connect, because most of us walk around keeping most of our thoughts and feelings to ourselves.


If we could see inside other peoples' hearts, this is what we'd see...
