We are a magnificent spiritual being of light and love, immersed in a game of life, restricted by the purposefully suppressed memories of our true immortal nature. Why would our unlimited spiritual being choose this? For the same reasons we, as humans, choose to do anything we enjoy- for fun, for new experiences, for joy and ultimately for growth!
We are here to grow and learn to empower ourselves as individuals so we can discover how to regain control of our own lives to enhance the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual journey that we are on. The ultimate goal of this journey is absolute freedom. This freedom is accomplished by remembering that we are an infinite soul on a journey back to the spiritual ‘Oneness’ that encompasses all of creation. Here and now freedom can be realized when we attain a state of deep and profound inner peace. When we reach this stage, no aspect of the game of life will ever frighten us again. We understand the game for what it is and realize that the content of our life is totally up to us. So, the logical next question is: “How to have a better life?”
Many people consider that ‘life is hard’: Can I make my life better?
While we are here in these physical bodies, our limited senses make us believe that we are no more than the individual human being that we identify with. This includes us believing that this life we are living is finite- and for many, can often be filled with suffering, confusion and a sense of helplessness. This results in too many people currently feeling that they have no control over their own destiny and they identify with an attitude that ‘life is hard.’
Many people are choosing anger, fear, criticism, and aggression as a result of their conditioning or programming. If we are routinely subjected to these emotions during our formative years, they become part of our psyche, part of our identity, and we unconsciously resort to these negative ways of dealing with life’s situations. We are reacting in the same way over and over again because it’s a habit, and habits are the easy option. However, it does not have to be this way.
Can I make my life better? Yes, you can! Reacting with love, acceptance, peace and support are better options- Better for you and better for the other people that you associate with. So, make a choice to think better thoughts, speak more positive words, and act in a more positive uplifting way at all times. Make this choice now! Remember it, and act upon it- beginning now.
It is as easy as becoming aware of the thoughts that are going on in your head at this very moment, and every other moment. Becoming more aware of your thoughts, more of the time, is the key to changing your life for the better. Whether we feel loving, powerful, and accepting, or fearful, angry and jealous is simply a matter of what thoughts we are currently thinking and then the words and actions we choose based on these thoughts.

Overcoming negative thinking: And why it is so important!
Have you ever asked yourself, ‘What difference does my presence make in the world? Most of us would answer ‘not much’ or ‘no difference at all.’ However, this is not the truth.
Our limited ego-self makes us believe that we are separate individuals and that we have no effect on the world outside of our sphere of influence. However, our Soul-Self realizes the holistic nature of our being, and therefore understands that every thought, every word and every action that we use all affect the ‘whole energy of all that is manifest and unmanifest.’
So your thoughts, (which are energy), your words (which are energy), and your actions, (which are energy) all contribute to the energetic vibration of the ‘whole’ system. Do you want to make your life, the life of those around you, and the whole environment a better or worse place to be in? Or, ‘Is the contribution that you are making on a moment by moment basis positive and uplifting or negative and un-supportive?’ It’s your choice! What do you choose?
What is my life mission? Begin with the foundation for a better life.
As a limited human being, there are two distinct and necessary parts to the changes that we must go through as individuals, from the unrealized limited state we are currently in, (the ego or identity self), to fulfill our mission on Earth at this time. First; we must concentrate our efforts on coming to know and understand ourselves- so that we can unconditionally love and forgive ourselves. This is the foundation for a better life.
A strong foundation will enable us to nurture a more aware version of our identity ‘self’ which will ultimately culminate in the realization of our enlightened soul ‘SELF.’ Then with increased awareness, we can help to initiate the second function of being a human here on Earth; enabling us to assist others to become all that they can be. Does this sound like a good life mission?
Your life is waiting for you to face your fears, overcome them, and start living a better life filled with fun, joy, laughter, and love. This part of the journey is about renewing our mind and transforming our soul so that they again recognize our already perfect spirit.
Life is a journey: Change your thoughts and change your life.
It’s important not to get lost in all the small details. Whenever you find yourself struggling with anything, stop, pause and take a few deep slow breaths. Remember that every journey is an accumulation of many small steps before arriving at the final destination. Becoming aware of, and involved in all the small steps along the way is the interesting part of the journey, not the final destination. If you can relax and remember that whatever is confronting you now is just temporary and that you can choose how you want to react, then you are in control. You can then change your thoughts and change your life!
Everything in our lives is constantly changing which gives us many options as to how we will react. Will you walk the easy narrow path that is well-known and safe for your ego, or will you choose to think, speak and act in a way that is positive and uplifting and supportive of a better life for all humanity- of which you are a very important ‘part of the whole?’
Remember when facing any challenges that ‘This too will pass!’
With much love and respect for all beings,
