"Gratitude opens our heart for the vistas and skies of our destiny. When we are grateful, we are at our purest state to accept the gifts from the universe.
I am grateful for the new day God has given me.
I am grateful for the old day God has taken from me.
I am grateful for the love that fills my heart.
I am grateful for the peace that fills my Soul.
I am grateful that I can sleep at night.
I am grateful for the dream that never sleeps."

"What is the ultimate fight? Is it battling an addiction? A behavior disorder? Grappling with the ego's itinerary versus the Soul's travel plans? Whatever it is, does not compare to the knockdown, drag-out fight between our will and God's will. Now that's the real ultimate fight. The one against ourselves."

The IM generation seems to be missing the boat. With all the technology at their disposal, they are burning themselves out and craving something much more substantial, something deeper -- a reconnection with their spirit."

"Why are so many teens willing to trade their innocence and succumb to the mystical power of MySpace?
Under the euphemistic guise of logging on to "discover friends," teens find themselves confronted with what is quickly becoming the crack whore of the internet. A place that snorts them into a black hole of bad decisions and dire consequences that leave them twitching on the side of the superhighway."

"We've all heard it a million times, "What goes around comes around." When many people think of karma they think of it as a tempestuous storm raining down on them with brute force. What many may not know is that karma is a neutral energy. It does nothing to provoke us. It just sits quietly in the corner and watches our every move and boy does it ever watch. It's supernal vision is supremely accurate. It sees everything. It even sees through things like x-ray vision. And it will never need eye glasses. Ever! It has perfect 20/20 vision. Perfect!"

"While it is true that most fears can be traced to the mother of all fears; fear of death, it is still possible to live without fear if we shift our consciousness. The biggest fear is the decision to stay in the fear. The greatest anxiety is the decision to face the fear. If you play the outcome in your mind first, you can overcome the fear."

"Why can't we say, No? Is it because we want to be nice? To be liked? Loved? How can we be strong for others if we keep saying, Yes? If we keep saying, Yes, to the same person, it takes away their ability to be strong and their ability to hear, No. If we say, Yes, to many people, it takes away our ability to be strong."

"Blogs are for the people. They are for you. They are about you. It's about life and death. Living before we die, not dying before we have a chance live. Blogging exhibits the tender mercies of real people, with unpredictable lives, unscripted drama and unforeseen trauma, searching for answers to life's quagmires and struggling to fit the puzzle pieces together. Bloggers are the unsung heroes, the eyes, ears, nose and throats, of the underground. The pulsating heartbeat, the beatniks of a new generation. The sounding board of a scream. Many screams."

"We come into this world with a hefty inheritance of God's love. The legacy of that love is not passed down to us to keep. We must spend it. However you want to be remembered depends on what you do now? If you want to be remembered for something great, do something greater than you ever imagined.
Don't limit yourself to small thinking. Think big. Think far. Think wide. Think high. Think deep. Think out of the box. Think out of the universe. Think everlasting. Leave your own legacy. You have the power to leave the kind of impression that you want by being aware of everything you think, say and do."

"There is a lot of sadness in the world.I see it often when I look into the eyes of someone and nothing is looking back at me. I hear it in the broken voices that speak the truth of their lives in mutated tones.I see the emotional scars that never heal. I see the spoke missing from the wheel. I hear the noise that a flat tire makes when it rides on its rim. It may cause tears, but a tear doesn't last forever. A tear evaporates into a life. A tear makes a life strong."

"God is like slow cooker. If we want something, we have to give up all attachment to it and surrender it. We do the best we can with what we have and turn the solution over to God. If we feel that our hands are tied, God has a better solution than we do. We may not be able to see it at first, but we have to trust that it is there. And guess what? It's usually even better than we expect."

"To many people God doesn't make sense, but when you delve deeper into life's cycles, you will begin to see that everything and everyone has a season. We are all Souls who have come to earth to learn certain lessons. Earth is a continual classroom. When disasters happen, it shakes everyone up and makes us think about our own mortality. God doesn't comfort us to make us comfortable, he comforts us to make us comforters. We must comfort that in which is uncomfortable in someone else."
"In Hollywood the celebrity is God. We watch every step they take, hear every breath they make. We want to be them. They live a life we all want to live. It's part of the fairytale and our inability to accept our mundane existence. If we saw God face to face, we would probably overlook it because God is not as famous as Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie. Celebrities are more famous than God -- until they die, then its back to their original audition."
"People tend to latch on to superficial concepts to get happy and they tend to believe them for a short while, but those concepts don't bring real happiness, wealth, a house the hill, an exotic sports car or peace of mind. Unfortunately, there is no cure for the ills of society or man's inhumanity to man and thinking positive won't cure those, but if we make a conscious effort to alleviate the pain of another Soul, offer a little solace in those formidable moments and reconnect the human circuitry that has been severed by circumstance, maybe there won't be as many people sleeping on sidewalks or starving to death.
The bread of kindness may not fill the stomach, but it fills the heart and makes starvation a lot less painful. Until we come together as a human race and not give material possessions center stage, no amount of positive thinking will propel us to spiritual freedom. We have to be the change. When we change ourselves, our world will change."
"There is more to us than meets the eye. We are more than a plethora of nerve endings coming together in a human body. We are pre-plotted land in the landscape of humanity and prime real estate in the universe. Our investment in kindness causes an appreciation that makes our spiritual property value skyrocket. Fate and faith is what gives our universal power the green light to make us into the mansions that we are and the panorama we can become."
"Could we be regenerated souls? Some people believe that when we are born, our soul already has plans for us; an inevitability that includes circumstances how and where we are born, the type of person we will be and the types of persons we will meet before this experience is over, all interwoven into a karmic tapestry."

"Who is the rightful owner of our soul?
Is it us or is it God? We are the lease holder of our souls. God is our landlord. Before we are returned back to God, we gather experiences that last several lifetimes. When God first considers our applications, our soul's rental history is reviewed, references checked, and our spiritual bank accounts verified for funds."

"Why is it that every time I am in the Express Line with one item, someone behind me with more than the allotted amount is complaining that the line is moving too slowly? Isn't that just like the human consciousness? We have become what I call, the microwave generation.

"After any destruction is new construction. Unfortunately we can't bring the dead victims back to life. Out of the survivors, many people will get new jobs, renewed hope and faith; bringing the death of their spirits back to life. It's the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.
We are on a treadmill of experiences; some happy, some sad; all unforgettable. When we fall off, we have to jump back on. In doing so, we develop a resolve, an inner strength, a spiritual deliberation of God's plans."

"I have been warned. Like a digital watch owner, my days were numbered. Apparently I'm about to be "exposed." As what I don't know? Whatever it is, I did it! Whatever it isn't, I'll do it! Isn't exposure the cornerstone of publicity?~Alexys Fairfield
Just in case anything happens to me, remember that I love you all; especially my exposer. I got an email yesterday in response to yesterday's post; an inspirational quote by Thoreau.
The email read, "Stop lying or I will expose you."
If you're going to expose me for anything, expose me for the truth. Whether you believe it or not, it's my truth and that's the glory of blogging.
This is my speakers corner and in speakers corner, anything goes. If what I choose to post offends you, then click to the next blog and read something that won't make you think or elicit a response.
If I believe in being read and you believe in being blue, then go where you can be blue and let me be read. The spectrum of colors exist for a reason. If you want to expose something, expose God in your heart."

"Since when did human life become so disposable? It is one thing to love God to the point where you feel loved and protected, but when that love turns to destruction then I question whether it is a love for God or something else disguised as God?
Have some of us lost our sense of purpose? Our sense of God? If certain individuals are living for God and all God has to offer, then how could those same individuals kill for God, essentially killing the God force itself? It is because of God that we live and breathe.
Just like a dog turning on its master, biting the hand that feeds it, God, or the interpretation thereof, obliterates the very thing it created.
Nature often holds a mirror to our behavior. When a Siamese Fighting fish looks at its own reflection, its characteristic aggressive responses are readily elicited by its own reflection in a mirror placed outside an aquarium. Could this be what's happening to us?
Are we intimidated by our own reflection? Afraid of what we see? Is the reason there is so much dissension and debate over God because man is in a quandary as to who God really is?"

Get to know your

"Godletes. Those souls who push themselves to the limit for the glory of God.
They are every bit dexterous, eloquent, and passionate, but you don't see them on cereal boxes with multimillion dollar endorsement deals. You don't see them doing press conferences, fielding questions from the world press. You may not even see them at all. Well, they are there.
They are the unsung heroes. We don't see the times when they have wanted to give up, but didn't. The times when they thought they couldn't go any further, but did. The times when they couldn't find the strength, but took a deep breath. They are not seeking a medal in this spiritual pilgrimage, but they are still going for the gold -- in mastership.
Wouldn't it be great if we could all be godletes? You can carry the torch, bear the scars, or change a life. And the reward? Well that comes from knowing you have carried the torch a little further and made a life a little easier. Be passionate in your quest and quenched in your thirst; whatever it shall be."

"Evolution is somewhat perplexing and mysterious. The more you learn, the more you know. The more you know, the less you learn. The canvas keeps expanding.
Evolution is not finite or determined at the end of a race. It is a slow burn to a brush fire. A fire that consumes you until you're spirit is ignited again.
It's not walking on hot coals barefoot, or giving up wordly possessions, or becoming a vegan. It is a life path to a greater life.
You are everything that you think you are. It's only by changing your consciousness that you become everything that you really are."

"We often chase external vices that we think will make us happy and they may do the job temporarily, but in the long run they do more damage than good.
Some sages purport that if you pursue something inherent, you won't get it. It is rather paradoxical. How can you get something without going after it? That's precisely the point. Happiness is already here; inside of you. It is the gold inside you that you have to mine.
Happiness is a blissfully powerful state in which you can disengage your conflicts and extend your contract with your state of well-being.
We traverse various vignettes that build our spiritual constitution. Those experiences can make us happy, sad, disappointed or a plethora of other emotions. Happiness is the end result of a choice we make. You can choose not to let an experience bring you down. This choice will allow more happiness.
Everyone experiences loss, breakups, being fired from jobs, losing loved ones, illness, horrendous ups and downs, yet they still hang in there."

"It is a constant challenge to be the best people we can be because we get distracted by minutiae. Although sometimes we may feel inadequate for any reason, we are never inadequate in the eyes of Spirit.
We are all here to be coworkers with each other for a higher purpose. How else can our souls be purified?
Feeling inadequate may be part of the reason why excess has become part of life's premium service. We want life with as many channels as possible. With all the bells and whistles. With as many opportunities to be distracted as possible. In the end, we are only prolonging the agony of defeat with a false thrill of victory.
We are minions for the silver-tongued, shiny tooth salesman who sells us used goods that we don't want or need, all to the soothing sounds of Cha-ching.
As amazing as technology is, it robs us of our sensibilities and fills us with artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners; all the junk that we don't want to eat."

Sometimes we fight and fight and still nothing happens. We think that it's all for naught and then the moment we want to give up, a transformation takes place, the referee stops the fight and declares us the winner. The scrapes and brusies, the blood and sweat doesn't mar the victory of doing our best.
"Have you ever had a situation that has caused you to fight to the bitter end without results? When it was over, you still felt exhausted, defeated and that you wasted your time? We've all been there. Often times, we're in predicaments where our backs are up against the wall and we have to fight."

"There's a force in life, like an umbilical cord that connects us all together. Some may call it God; Allah; Spirit; Holy Ghost; or Christ. Some don't believe in it at all, but it is here. Whatever the name, this force gives us a feeling of hope, of being a part of a bigger scheme.
If you see anyone who is disenfranchised, throw out a life preserver. Talk talk to them, listen, be a vehicle for Spirit. Impress upon them that life is too precious to throw away. We are here to live and live we shall."

Television news has gone to the dogs.
"Television news in Los Angeles, has hit an all time low. The producers know you want to be seduced, so they showcase their best team to get the scores up. For your viewing pleasure, are sexy starlet wannabes softly lit in backless skintight party dresses who stand and look directly into the camera. They lower the bar and pour absinthe shots into our open mouths while their silicone dangles and their collagened and botoxed faces serve death and debauchery with a joker smile. This Caligulan oration is somehow disguised as news."

"Throughout history, the Greeks have always taught us a thing or two about ourselves and those lessons are still with us. They taught us to to philosophize, dramatize, theorize and immortalize tragedy. They gave us a thesis, antithesis and synthesis and let us watch them politicize in olympic-sized democratic debates. They made us remember through mythic proportion, the mathematician, academician, fabler, the peripatetic lecturer and monumental architecture. They even made doctors swear by the Hippocratic oath. Today the Greek key can be seen around the world as the Versace logo."

"The spiritual path is one of the most arduous and misunderstood paths of self-evaluation and evolution. As your awareness is stretched, there is pain and discomfort, it's literally, 'no pain, no gain.'
