Taking Things Personally

Daily Om: Every time you interact with others, you have the choice to listen to, acknowledge, and let go of their words, or you can take what they are saying personally. Taking things personally is often the result of perceiving a person's actions or words as an affront or slight. In order to take something personally, you must read negative intent in an individual's words or actions. But what people do and say has no bearing upon you and is usually based on their own experiences, emotions, and perceptions. If you attempt to take what they do or say personally, you may end up feeling hurt without reason. If you are tempted to take a comment or action personally, creating some distance between yourself and the other person can help you. Try to determine what is at the root of your more>>>...

"When something is lost. Something new is always waiting to be found"

'When you lose sight of your path, listen for the destination in your heart'


Daily OM: Occasionally, we need to pause - and step away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. One way to do this is to get away from our daily life and go on retreat. Far more than a vacation, a retreat offers us time to ourselves to rest, heal, reflect, and renew our spirit. It is a time to cocoon so that we may emerge renewed, refreshed, and ready to return to our everyday lives with a new perspective. A retreat gives us time for uninterrupted meditation so that we may go deep within and spend time with ourselves.

A retreat may offer quiet, solitude, and sometimes even silence. Retreats often take place in humble dwellings with simple fare so that our senses may be reawakened to the beauty of unadorned tastes and the sights and sounds of more>>>...

“Environmentalists” have been fooled: The very molecule they’ve declared war on is the same molecule necessary to re-green the entire planet

Natural News: Carbon dioxide has been vilified as the harbinger of climate change for years now, but it seems that this belief may have been misguided. Indeed, carbon dioxide may be what saves the planet as opposed to what destroys it. The media has done a brilliant job of putting carbon dioxide (CO2) at the forefront of the climate change debate, but scientists are beginning to speak up and present evidence to the contrary.

“Far from being a ‘pollutant,’ carbon dioxide is the ‘Miracle Molecule of Life’ for re-greening the planet through reforestation. This essential molecule supports the entire web of life on our planet, and without it, all plants, animals and humans would die,” Mike Adams, the Health Ranger writes. Recently, Adams created an educational video to explain why CO2 is not, in fact, a pollutant — and rather an essential nutrient that plant life needs in order to more>>>...

Life Can Be Scary

Daily OM: Life can take us on a roller coaster ride full of highs and lows and twists and turns. Even for those of us who enjoy unexpected thrills, it's frightening to suddenly find ourselves heading for a deep plunge. Yet, it happens to all of us. At these moments, it is important to remember that you are not alone in your experiences. No matter how brave, strong, or levelheaded we are, sometimes, we all get scared.

Our fears may revolve around our physical safety, particularly if we are not feeling well, living under difficult circumstances, or doing work that exposes us to hazardous more>>>...

Get Out of Your Own Way

Daily Om: When you find yourself facing obstacles that appear to be blocking you from your goals, it is important to try not to get discouraged. It can be easy to feel "stuck" or that "life" is creating circumstances preventing you from getting what you want. And while it is easy to look at everyone and everything outside of ourselves for the problem, perhaps even wanting to "get rid" of the person, object, or circumstance we may feel is blocking us, sometimes the best course of action to take may be to look inside ourselves first.

It is amazing how often we can get in our own way without even being aware that we are doing so. Even though we truly want to succeed, there are many reasons why we may sometimes block our own more>>>...

'Dont waste your time with explanations; people only hear what they want to hear'

Martian Deceptions

The four images above have all been captured from Google Earth - Mars ... and are full of artefacts that raise the question of the deception we are been sold about what is really on Mars ....

Twiddle Twaddle Deception

It was billed as a brilliant night of 'trance mediumship'. What was seen was a night of twiddle twaddle deception that a small audience of partisan 'believer's' fell for!

Its always been a disputed bone of contention, in our opinion, when a 'medium' claims to go into trance, and then starts talking in an 'foreign accent' then pretends that the spirit coming through them is a typical Native American (Unless you have Indigenous American blood they will not come to you!) It was a very poor rendition of trance mediumship, in truth. Its even worse when this so called dead person was claimed to come through at will! Again, that is NOT how it works.

The entire spectacle was outrageous and downright embarrassing, especially when the partisan audience really believed their comrade was channelling the dead spirit of a Native American.

We've seen the real thing a few times in the 1980's and this did not have any of the telltale signs that indicate something truly supernatural was taking place.

What was witnessed in this instance was a theatrical deception that was crazy and annoyingly outrageous. Those in the audience who really did believe the lies before them need their head examining if they really think this is how it works!!!

Mind Stretching

Daily OM: Flexibility is the capacity to bend without breaking, as well as a continual willingness to change or be changed in order to accommodate new circumstances. People with flexible minds are open to shifting their course when necessary or useful; they are not overly attached to things going the way they had planned. This enables them to take advantage of opportunities that a more rigid person would miss out on. It can also make life a lot more fun. When we are flexible, we allow for situations we could not have planned, and so the world continues to surprise and delight us.

Since reality is in a constant state of flux, it doesn't make sense to be rigid or to cling to any one idea of what is happening or what is going to more>>>...
