Wisdom From The Dalai Lama
Last night (4/25/2012) on Piers Morgan Tonight, Piers interviewed the Dalai Lama. Just because I’m pagan doesn’t mean I can’t learn from and appreciate teachings and wisdom from those of other faiths. And everyone can learn much from the Dalai Lama. It was an excellent and fascinating interview, perhaps the best interview of the Dalai Lama I’ve ever seen.
His honesty is so refreshing in this time of “spin” and out right lies from political leaders, celebrities, and yes even from the spiritual community itself. His optimism is inspiring and by itself can give one hope for a better world. What struck me the most was that he isn’t so optimistic as to be delusional about what can be attainable. He’s much more of a realist than I had ever thought someone in his position could be. And that impressed the heck out of me!
At the end of the show, Piers tells his viewers that here in America we spend $11 billion on the self help and self improvement industry. We spend so much time looking outside ourselves to find happiness, that we forget to look within our own selves, in our actions and our practices. But the Dalai Lama has a cheaper way of finding happiness.
Here are the Dalai Lama’s words of wisdom in his 7 Point Guide to Self Fulfillment: Continue reading
Give up the belief that you cannot have what you want, and you will be able to achieve your dreams.

Thought is energy. What you think, you will create. That’s true whether the thoughts are positive, negative or indifferent. What you think, creates how you feel and what kind of world directly related to you, will be created. Patterns of thought feed the situations in your life. The more energy you give to a thought pattern, the more you create those thoughts in your Mind, Body and Spirit.
Negative thought patterns can create an uneasiness in your life. That dis-ease will often first appear in your physical body as an ailment. The more you ignore that negative thought, the greater the ailment can become. When you work to consciously change that pattern of thought, you bring healing to the situation. Hopefully you didn’t wait too long, and simply changing the pattern of thinking helps heal the ailment fully.
This can be true for situations in your life as well. Constantly assuming you can’t attain your dreams will establish a self-fulfilling prophecy. You don’t believe you can, so you unconsciously create failure in your life.
The first step to acquiring your dreams is to believe in yourself, to believe you already have the ability to make your dreams come true and that you WILL achieve success. Giving up the doubt releases the anchor that holds you back and releases you to manifest your own Divine Creative energy and succeed. Whether that dream is good health, love, financial abundance or your dream job.
What is the Law of Manifestation?
Thought is the creator behind all operations of manifestations in the material world. These manifestations cannot occur until a suggestion or thought, (some would call it a desire) hits the Subconscious mind. But the Subconscious must also ‘take in’ that thought and process it.
Einstein once said, “Thought is energy, to create it (energy), just use your imagination.” Continue reading
Combining Your Spiritual Mission With Your Life’s Work
Some people think you don’t really understand passion until you reach a certain age in life. Others believe if you are encouraged as a child to follow your dreams, you can discover your passion when you’re still young enough to focus your energy on making it happen. I don’t think it matters what point you are in life, if you have a passion and supportive family and friends, you can find a way to live it.
That might be the biggest key of all. Having the support of family and friends. Too often in our society today, we’re pushed to be successful at any expense. To study hard and work for the best grades in school, to attend the best school, get the best degrees and work at the best companies. Being successful is all to often tied to financial gain instead of having a fulfilling life.
Unfortunately not that many of us, at least here in the States, know how to appreciate what we have and what we’ve worked for long enough to enjoy it. We attain “things” and soon after, we’re pushed to acquire the next thing that we’re told will make us “happy”. It’s a shame that the drive to succeed doesn’t come with the drive to be truly happy and true to yourself. Continue reading
Forgiveness is something you do for yourself, not for others. – Unknown
You cannot change the past, but you can change the way you allow the past to affect your present and your future. ~ Springwolf
Some times to change the present and improve the future, you must forgive the past and release the prisoner that has been held captive within. ~ Springwolf
Forgiveness is a sign of strength and self-love. Hatred is a sign of weakness and fear. ~ Springwolf
