Lesson From a Blockbuster Movie

What is the story that you are telling yourself about the things that bother you? Are you facing financial problems, relationship issues, health concerns, career stagnation? How do you face each of these? What happens to you is important. The story you tell yourself about what happens to you is much more important.

To Heck With Gratitude! (How To Be Grateful When Life Throws You Lemons)

Are you sick and tired of being told that you should be "grateful" for the wonderful things in your life? I frequently, very frequently, advise persons to feel grateful for their lot in life.

So, is it possible that what you are today about to label a ‘bad thing’ could, at some point in the future, turn out to have been a ‘good thing?’

There Is No Such Thing As Peace of Mind!

We are living in unusually turbulent times. But when you try to ‘quiet’ your mind, when you try to ‘control’ it, you are doomed to failure. You are simply feeding energy to something that you have created, and which does not exist except you think it does. Your mind does not exist. It is fiction. It is unreal. It comes into being because you think it exists. Here's how you can actually live peacefully in these crazy times.
