On Being Blocked On Your Path

The devil will attack you in the areas of your greatest anointing. Be mindful of where the negativity is coming from and fight it off. Don’t give the demon more attention than it deserves, and don’t allow it to continue to take air space. Negativity feeds on attention of any kind. Starve it.

Mindfully yours,

Thoughts on Teamwork & Leadership

DSC00596 - THTT signed

A team / group of people cope best in difficulty, when they fully understand the objective that they are working towards.

A leader of a group has to lead ~ he or she cannot simply show up.

When there is a clearly outlined objective, it makes moving forward a possibility.

No success was ever achieved without deliberately working towards a specific goal.

For success to ‘happen’, one has to study success, set the compass towards success, dress for success, do and take whatever steps and actions are needed towards the achievement of the goal(s), and keep focus alive.

Where success dwells, no excuses are entertained.

If you want to achieve something, you have to be prepared to do whatever it will take for you to achieve it.

If you want a team to work with you on something, you have to either lead properly or delegate the leadership, and find ways to continually celebrate successes along the way, as well as providing rewards during and at the end of the process.

In pursuit of excellence,

Being Busy

We are now all mini satellite offices, carrying our Reception Desks and Admin Departments in our hands, pockets, handbags …

“Think of the ant …”

Now consider the eagle.

“A bee is praised, a mosquito is swatted …”

Open eyes and see what’s going on, really.

Balanced views are critical to sustainable success.

Optimism is …

Optimism is …

Singing and dancing whilst living on a plank.

Tips:

1. Look at the plank, not at the swirling waves.

2. Appreciate the plank, stare at the horizon, ride the waves.

In strength,

History and Herstory

“History and Herstory are good for getting perspective, for learning from and through, chartered by the Institute of Life, but not a place to live forever within … merely to be appreciated and launched beautifully beyond.”

Test it all against the truth of Love

img_4469-thtt-signed

While we whinge about aspects of our First World lives, so opulent in so many ways, babies are starving, people are aching for unconditional love, mothers are desperately trying to rise above the humiliation of poverty, business people are seeing the futility of the fast buck when they receive medical shocks … people are sleeping rough on the streets, children are crying and afraid, parents are carrying their children away from war torn conflict, the earth is heaving and groaning in agony as we treat it like a useless machine … Every man has a duty to wake up and examine himself. Every woman has a duty to forgive her peers and show them unconditional love … Every one of us has a duty to work on returning to what really matters and that is not One Upmanship … What really matters is how much we love. Love is an entire subject of its own. Love does not rob, covet, nor harm in any way. Love loves. That’s what brought us each into the world. That’s where we came from. That’s where we might return … To Love. How we live now determines how we’ll be then. Love applies to everything. Test it all against the truth of Love.

When People Talk About Others

img_2121

When people talk about others, remember that they are just as capable of talking about you. Be careful.

When you notice that people have slipped into the shadows, know that they have not collected their facts. Be careful.

When groups fall off the ledge of your life, know that they have been spreading rumour and gossip. Be mindful.

When people turn their back on you or walk away, instead of towards you with love, let them go. Carefully. Remember: they were never meant to be there for ever anyway, and their thoughts are none of your business.

Go mindfully through life.
Don’t gossip.
Gossip and slander hurts.
And it bites back
Always.
That’s just how the Universe works.

Appreciate those who love you, regardless, unconditionally.
They are the treasure.
Focus on them.
Practise love anyway.
It always wins.
That’s just how the Universe works.

Life Is Not Fair

DSC02437 - THTT signed

Life is not fair.

When you are ostracised, judged, criticised, scorned, avoided, circumvented, ignored, mocked, derided, gossiped about, spurned, shunned, snubbed, rebuffed, or even politely side-stepped, despite being honourable, loyal, honest, non-judgemental, clean-living, empathetic, kind, generous, tireless in doing the right thing … it hurts. It hurts more than it hurts those who do none of these, or only some. Why? Because your heart is open and, when your heart is fully open, you open yourself to being vulnerable to both joy and pain. Open is open, there are no half-measures with truth and honesty. What to do about it? Nothing. Only stand. Keep standing. Keep doing what is right. And in the place of standing, love and hug and walk only in the light … Leave all the others to their own devices … and rest in the knowledge that by doing only that which will stand up to scrutiny in a fair court in any land, your rewards will be eternal (as will theirs) and you can always live with yourself.

One Life

We get one stab at life. Just one …

Don’t sell yourself short because someone said you get a chance to come back as a cockroach or a frog … This is the only life you have, this is the only life you can work within, this is the one chance and the one opportunity to make the most of every experience. If you fall down, if you weep, if you struggle, if you are exhausted, if you’re in pain, if you are aching to the marrow of your soul … remember that the tides turn and the sun shines another day … and all will be well. In the end, we go back to peace. In the meantime, we have to work our way towards peace in the moment … and the simplest route, the one that takes the least energy (even if it makes the most enemies), is the one that is you being AUTHENTIC.

At the end of our lives, when all the parties are over and all the glitz has grown tarnished, all we have is our selves and our souls and, if we are lucky, a few loved ones around to see us on our way. What we invest into that end moment now, is what will make the difference to that end moment when it comes. We can each make a difference to our lives, by making a difference to someone else’s. We can each do something right now that will take us out of our misery and into our bliss … all it takes is a decision to reach out and do something, anything, for someone or something else.

Our social media, our mainstream media and the major part of our influential film world, teach us to be self-centred, self-obsessed, self-conscious, self-loathing, selfie selfie selfish. We are surrounded by judgement, criticism, critique, violence, porn (look carefully) and morons parading their stupidity … how is any of that helping us to live our own best lives?

One stab at life … and one stab can end it … there are many ways to experience a stab.

So, this moment, whatever it holds, matters … and it matters greatly. Why? Because this moment will determine the next one … and the one after that … and on and on and on.

If you don’t like how you’re behaving, step off the conveyor belt of conformity to whatever norm you’re trying to fit into. If you don’t like waking up with a sore head, make a decision to clean up your act, and start doing so NOW. If you are absorbing everyone’s toxins, build some filters and fill your own life with light.

The only thing we should be selfish about is surrounding our minds with love and light and hope and peace and health and everything that will sustain us in our dying moment … it will come. None of us can escape the end of our life on earth … no matter what. We started as seed (with life breathed into it), and we return as compost material or ash … back to the earth our bodies will go, and up to the ether our souls. Going up, or going down? The time to determine that, is now.

Live. Life. Now.
Help. Someone Else. Up.
Love.

Love is all that matters … if you wish to go up, and beyond the stars.

Remember: we get one stab at life. Just one. Life is NOW.
It might not wait.

Friday Thought ~ Break The Chains

Keep calm and breathe …

 

 

 

Friday Thought

Gratitude, helping others, appreciating the abundance of the planet and doing what you can to tread lightly, sharing out of what you have, opening your mind to the possibilities of making a difference right where you are, trusting in divine providence, minding your own business, refusing to gossip, attending to your own responsibilities, always speaking the truth, being honest in all your dealings, bringing things out from the darkness and into the light, facing difficulties, taking care of your own attitudes, looking after your body, practising compassion, doing the correct things that you expect others to do … all of these and more, help to free the mind from mental chains … and all of these produce good brain health.

Good mind health = good brain health = good body health = good life = peace (regardless of your outward circumstances).
