RYS 008: How to be Powerful, Purposeful, and Peaceful

In this Episode:

Satisfaction and joy come from creating deep, lasting relationships with ourselves and others. Accomplishing this requires developing the peaceful, purposeful presence that comes from controlling what we allow in and what we allow to distract us from what is happening in the moment.

 

• Life is only real in the present
• To stay present requires managing distractions
• Peace and power come from your emotional connection to now

Gratefully Receive

love exchange

I enjoy cooking, so last Thanksgiving I wanted to prepare everything for the meal. My mother-in-law has been cooking for about eighty-two and I thought it would be a great gift for her to have a break. So last week when she asked what she could bring I said, “How about you just come and enjoy the day.” From the look on her face I immediately knew she was disappointed. But in that moment I was only focused on my desire to give her the gift of not having to cook.

Later that day it hit me. While I thought I was giving her a gift I was actually refusing her the pleasure she gets from cooking. I called her and said, “Elsa, what do you want to bring.” I heard her light up when she replied, “I’d like to make the dressing and Brussels sprouts with mushrooms, onion and garlic too,” she said with joy in her voice. “That will be wonderful,” I told her.

Thanksgiving is about gratitude and I am grateful to have honored her desire to contribute.  In the end I really did give her the best gift and it gave me so much more joy than the happiness I thought she would get from not having to cook.

Be open to receiving as much as you give.  Other people’s joy comes from giving just as your’s does too.  Let them have that joy.  Happy Thanksgiving!

There is Gain Through Loss

Gain-Through-Loss

I was downsized from an executive position right before 9-11. Without any prospect of a job in the city where I’d lived for twenty years I had to move away. I was forced to sell the new home I’d moved into only two years before. I had to leave the beautiful English cottage garden I’d built stone by stone and plant by plant. I lost my relationship. It seemed overnight I was involuntarily removed from the familiar, from friends, from the life I knew.

In the end I lost almost everything. But in the process I found myself. That is why I can promise you from experience that when you look at the challenges of life as opportunities to grow, you will blossom.

No matter what you are going through, no matter how much you have lost, there is a very good reason.  Look for the silver lining, the light at the end of the tunnel.  Determine what about your life was not going well that caused this upset in your plans.  Be open to the fact that the universe (life) is asking you to grow, change, and move forward.

RYS 006: Change Your Thinking to Change Your Life

In this Episode:

Are your thoughts negative? Do your thoughts limit you? Does your mind feed you a constant stream of negative judgments about yourself and other people?

 

• You are not your thoughts
• What you focus on you create
• You have power to control and change your thoughts

RYS 005: Being an A-hole is a Choice You Don’t Want to Make

In this Episode:

In relationships it is not possible to fight fire with fire and not get burned. Sorry but your prideful, defensive ego will justify all sorts of behavior and rationalize all types of reasons that you should ego-box with rude, self-centered arrogant people.  The truth is we cannot reason with unreasonable people.

 

  • What we invest in life we get back.
  • You are only one half of the association you have with another person.
  • The better person brings a higher level of awareness to a situation.

You Are Surrounded by Good People

I live in Los Angeles, California, the second largest city in the United States. My neighbors are a cross-section of humanity from around the world that represents almost every religion, race, and culture on earth.  They are kind, respectful, responsible, and cooperative and are working each day to move our planet in the right direction.

I do not believe I am the only person blessed to be surrounded by caring and loving folks who are being the change we want to see.  I believe each of us is. We simply keep our mind and heart open to notice.

This week notice how many acts of kindness you witness by the good people in your community.  Look for the positive and be grateful for all the wonderful good that is being created.  Be part of that movement.

RYS 004: A Life Filled With Drama is Just Not That Entertaining

In this Episode:

Yes, life is going to suck at times. Life is going to provide lots of drama. There is much negative going on in the world. But when we only focus on the negative, the drama-rama of life, we find ourselves in the middle of a bleak existence where we feel powerless, depressed, and victimized. And we wonder why.

 

  • Can’t allow ourselves to be swallowed up by negativity.
  • Messages and experiences actually change our brain.
  • We become what we focus on.

Support is Different Than Doing For Someone

We cannot prevent someone we love from experiencing pain. Sometimes the very thing another person needs to change and grow is to be left on their own to face the challenges of life. We are not abandoning them. Rather we are allowing them the opportunity to stand on their own two feet because if someone is always there to pick up the pieces or make the decisions or pay the bills they cannot learn to depend on themselves.

No matter how hard it is to witness, in my experience, it is often when we are at our lowest that we rise up and grab the rope to save ourselves. Having the courage to let someone do this for themselves is a part of loving them. In fact, one of the greatest ways we can love someone is to let them go because codependency is not love. It is ego’s desire to control, or fix, or change disguised as love.
