Traveling Among The Stars

Friday, February 27 2015:
A sad day for me as I discovered that Spock truly wasn’t returning.  We can Search For Spock all we want, but he won’t be found.  Not this time.  For he is now truly traveling among the stars.  I’ve been a huge fan of the the entire Star Trek universe since I first discovered the original series in the early 1970s.  I think I most connected with Leonard Nimoy’s portrayal of Spock over any other character on the original series.

Spock

Spock was the serious character in a somewhat otherwise sometimes campy series.  I believe he was the heart and conscience that held the crew together.

–He was the logical one.
–He thought through the challenges that arose.

 

Although Leonard Nimoy played other roles during his lifetime, it was with Spock that he became an indelible fixture in the hearts and minds of everyone.  Even people who:

 

 

A.  Never watched Star Trek
B.  Never knew anything about the series

knew who Spock was.  In fact I’d go so far as to say that the character of Spock became even more ubiquitous than Captain Kirk.  Maybe I’m thinking so because I felt a strong connection to Spock.  If you look at the breadth of his career, I believe you’ll find that he appeared in more Star Treks (movies and series after the original series ended than any other original series character.)   He even appeared outside the Star Trek Universe as Spock.  How many other fictional television characters have played themselves so frequently after their series ended?  Why did I feel that connection to Spock?

 

I think because even though he was supposed to be emotionless, his feelings surfaced frequently throughout the series.  His raised eyebrows after something amusing happened wouldn’t have occurred if he wasn’t half human.  Spock struggled consistently with his humanity as we all do.  Another reason I connected with his character.
We all have challenges.  
We all have our struggles.

 

It may have been the reason behind creating the character of Spock in the first place.  Roddenberry was ahead of the curve in so many ways.  He portrayed the first interracial kiss for one.  And one of the reasons Science Fiction (SF) is my favorite genre is that many of the stories are simply allegories masked in the SF genre.

 

To show a half alien half human character struggle with human emotions is Roddenberry’s mask.  Spock was ahead of the curve as well and he stayed ahead by staying the most relevant character from the original series.

 

Live Long and Prosper, Spock.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Memory Doesn’t Care

A long time reader of Wisdom and Life stopped into the library a few weeks ago to pick up a couple of books she had on hold.  Lisa R. looked at one of the books and said she THINKS she read it previously.  We then began a discussion about memory and how it works.  Lisa brought up Einstein and said there is a story that he never remembered his phone number because he didn’t care to.  I mentioned to her that if someone asked me about a book I read twenty plus years ago, I can tell you what it was about and why it resonated with me.

Memory

 

Because you care, she said.  It’s why unless someone is motivated by what they are learning, unless they care about the subject matter, it won’t be retained, she said.

 

What I took away from that conversation for parents and children as well is what I’ve said from day one in my Parental Pressure category at Wisdom and Life:
Let your children go.
Let them decide the course of their lives.

 

If you push them to do something they are not ready to do they will surely fail because their heart isn’t in it.  The memory won’t care to retain any knowledge.  If someone isn’t motivated, they surely won’t learn.

 

I never really considered that.  I never thought about memory working if you care about what you’re doing.  Reading has always been a HUGE part of my life.  It stands to reason that I’d recall books I read years ago.  Lisa struck a chord with me.  It’s not the first time she has inspired me to write a column as can be seen from the search query below:
Lisa R/Wisdom and Life  The first seven columns:
Routines to Life is a Process are inspired by Lisa.

 

I just find it fascinating that it sometimes takes someone else to point out something that we don’t or can’t see in our own lives.  You know, like that saying:
You can’t see the forest for the trees.

 

It makes perfect sense now that I consider it, that memory only works for things we WANT to recall.

 

Do you have examples of this in your own life?  Would love to hear from you if you do. Leave your comments below.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

An All Providing Invisible Force

Make yourself available for success, and know and trust in an invisible force that’s all providing.

 

Wayne Dyer

 

A friend of mine who has been following Wisdom and Life for sometime now dropped into the library before this past Christmas and gave me a gift, a daily Wayne Dyer Quotes calendar.  I have such wonderful friends I’ve made and they continue to surprise me.  In August when my birthday rolled around, several library patrons left cards for me.

success

 

It’s such a warm feeling to know that people I know superficially through my contact with them at the library, appreciate me and show that appreciation.  It continues to surprise me when these things happen.

 

The above quote came from that calendar.  I’ve discussed success at Wisdom and Life before and it’s one of those topics that never gets old.

 

Do you define success by what you have in the bank?
Do you define success by what your debt is?

 

That is surely one way to measure success.  There is so much more to success however.  You’ve heard it said That you can’t take it with you, I’m sure.  I’ve seen many people who have financial success and be miserable.  To me I’d rather create abundance:
An abundance of friends.
An abundance of memories.
An abundance of people who love me whether they be friends or family.

 

Success means different things to different people.  If I can help someone see that it means more than financial then that’s a good thing.

 

How much do we in general stress over finances?
How much good does it do to stress over something that is out of our control?
Yes we can control some of the financial stress in our lives by maintaining a balance on what we spend.  Some things are out of our control however:
Groceries.  
Car maintenance.
Household bills.

 

All of these things are out of our influence.  The only thing we can master is our reaction to the events that circle around us.  Most of us will always have debt in our lives.  The question is will we let it manipulate our well-being?

 

Does being in debt make us bad people?

That depends on our personality.
That depends on how we feel.  

 

You know my understanding of belief is that we receive what we believe, we receive what we think.  If we see lack in our lives, if we believe debt makes us bad people, then that’s what will happen.  We will be in that neverending cycle of debt equals bad people.

 

It’s one of the blessings I have to understand that yes I have substantial debt but I don’t let that navigate my life, I don’t let it affect my personality.  I understand that I will be taken care of.  If I chop away a little at a time, if I dig a little bit at a time, I will see that debt begin to evaporate.  Being in debt doesn’t mean I’m not a success.

I have a career that I love.
I have a roof over my head.
I live five minutes from work.
I can walk anywhere within a few minutes and be downtown.
I have countless friends.

 

This is how I measure my success.

 

I have a strong faith that my life is guided by the Divine.
That God is in control.
I understand that we have multiple lives to get it right.
I understand that we NEVER get it right.  Life is one huge lesson and there are no mistakes, just challenges to improve our lot in life.

 

Success is measured in abundance.  Not in financial well being.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

God is in Control

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again today. I feel so blessed to understand that my life is out of my control.
I no longer worry
I no longer stress

Open Window

 

I’ve finally come to the realization that whatever happens is supposed to happen. And that whatever happens is ALWAYS for the greater good.  I certainly understand that not everyone shares my belief in this, however, the point is that my life works so much better, my life flows, my life is no longer a struggle because I’ve ceded control of the challenges I encounter to the Divine.

 

 

 

I’ve always known that God is in control, that God brings the best to us, that God presents challenges in our lives to make us stronger, to bring better to us.  When something leaves our lives, whether it be a relationship, whether it be a job, whatever it maybe, don’t shut down, don’t close your eyes and give up.  Keep your eyes open.

 

Watch for the gift that will arrive.
Watch for that window to open.
Remember the Divine is directing our lives.

And the Divine only wants what is best for us.

 

I feel blessed to have realized this and to be able to put it into daily practice; which is not to say I don’t mourn the losses I experience.  I do!  However I also know to watch for that window.

 

It’s NEVER not happened.

Every challenge that has occurred in my life has always come with a something better in the future:
Living through my temporary hell in the 1970s brought my Fairy Godmother.
Losing the opportunity to work at Chatfield Hollow brought me to the Scranton Library.

 

There are so many other examples I can give, but you get the picture.

 

How did I reach this point where I see life as a gift, where I see the Divine as the director, where I see a window open as a door closes?  Excellent question.

I’ve seen it happen all the time.  You know how they say hindsight is 20/20?  As I look back over the course of my life and see EVERY challenge I’ve endured, (And oh man!  There have been too many to recount here.)  I’ve also seen blessings that have resulted from those challenges.  The biggest emotional challenge I experienced is recounted above in Living through my temporary hell…

 

The gift that arrived from that experience alone proved to me that there is ALWAYS a silver lining, that a window will ALWAYS open.

 

I certainly didn’t see it at the time because I was all of five, six and seven years old.  Twenty years later however, I see the blessing.  And now when a challenge arises I wait for the storm to clear the debris and look for the gift.  I understand that there is ALWAYS a gift, only because I’ve experienced it in the past.  You know what is said about the past:
That it is a wonderful teacher if you learn from it.

 

I’ve learned from my past have you?

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Facing a Challenge

Last Thursday, January 29, I spoke before  an audience for only the second time in several years.  Rachel Salvo and I spoke about Social Media.  I’ve been using social for many years now and because of that, I’ve been able to understand what works and what doesn’t.  Google+ is my area of expertise.  I’m not saying that I’m G+ expert.  I’m not.  There are many others on the platform who know much more than I do.  I can speak to how it has helped my business and my three blogs however and that’s what I spoke about.

Image from:
CJP Photo News
Half.CJP.Social

 

 

See?  I have challenge with my speech, have had it all my life, where I block.  I sometimes can’t get out what I want to say.  When I was younger, this was a full fledged stutter where I’d repeat and repeat.  Somewhere along the way, the stutter morphed into what it is now, a block.

 

I used to be intimidated to speak before an audience.  Not anymore!  As long as I explain myself in the beginning and people understand the situation it kind of relaxes me and if I’m relaxed, I don’t stress as much and if I don’t stress the speech challenge doesn’t bother me.  I think knowing that I was going to speak about a huge passion of mine curtailed my anxiety as well.   We all have challenges in our lives.  The only thing that really matters is how we deal with them, how we face them.

 

We have to deal with them.
We have to face them.

 

If we don’t, if we simply run away from them, if we hide from them, if we bury our heads in the sand and pretend they don’t exist, then the challenge wins.  Notice I have used the word challenge to describe what I have.  Look at the first page of the search term Negative Words at Wisdom and Life to understand why I choose to use the words I do now.  I don’t see things in the negative anymore, because if we focus on negativity, that’s what shows up.

 

It’s why I continue to push myself beyond my expectations.  It’s why I accept a challenge such as speaking before an audience. It’s why when I was growing up, I pushed against what others expected of me, what others wanted me to do with my career.  It’s why I chose my own path.  And because I chose my own path it’s why I’m so happy with my life at the moment.  I love the career path I chose because I CHOSE it.  It wasn’t foisted on my by the well meaning people in my life.

 

Challenges will always arise in our lives.  We can face them head on and push through them; or we can choose to ignore them and run away.  I’m grateful to understand the only way to survive is to meet each challenge head on and push through.  For if we don’t do our best to beat each one that crops up, we may look back on our lives and say:
Shoulda.
Woulda.
Coulda.

 

I know I never want to be in that place.  It’s why I choose to live my life the way I do.  How do you live your life?

 

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Ask and Ye Shall Receive

One of the challenges with Law of Attraction is when you REALLY begin to understand what it says and what it can do for you is you learn to be VERY specific when asking for something.  You’ve heard the adage:
Ask and ye Shall Receive

 

Image from:
Amazon
Monkey'sPaw

 

That is a Biblical reference that has been assumed by Law of Attraction.  The more specific you are, the more information you give, when making your request, the greater the opportunity you will have to receive everything you want.  Before putting your wish “out there” so to speak, make sure you think of EVERY contingency, make sure you’ve thought about EVERY feature you want.  That can be a challenging undertaking, but unless you think through your desire clearly, you will surely come away with something less than what you asked for.

 

Whether you’re looking for a romantic relationship.
Whether you’re looking for a job or career.
Whether you’re looking for a place to live.

 

Make sure you think long and hard about EVERYTHING you want:
In a relationship:
Do you want long term
Do you want to be exclusive and monogamous in time?
Long term and exclusive are two ENTIRELY separate traits.

 

If you ask for long term and THINK you are asking for monogamous, think again.  If you want an exclusive and monogamous relationship, then ask for that.  Write down EVERYTHING you want and be as specific as possible.  Don’t put ANYTHING “out there” that you don’t want.  The more specific you are the more you will receive.

 

Take it from personal experience.  I didn’t realize this until I came in contact with Law of Attraction, however, EVERY relationship I’ve had has come to me as a result of my asking for EXACTLY what I wanted.  And I ALWAYS received EXACTLY what I asked for.  I’ve left out key points each time I put the request “out there.”

 

When looking for a home:
Do the same thing:
Be as specific as possible.
Write down EVERYTHING you want.

 

I have a friend who looked for a house several years ago and did this.
She found the EXACT house she described while writing down her wants.

 

The lesson I’ve learned when making requests, when asking for gifts, when seeking what I want:
Be as SPECIFIC as possible when asking the Universe/God/The Divine for ANYTHING.

 

 

Because the LAST thing I want is for what happened in W.W. Jacobs Story:
The Monkey’s Paw.

 

The definitive:
Better make sure you’re as specific as possible when asking for ANYTHING.
Or
Be careful what you ask for because you just may receive it.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Daylight and Spring

Living in New England in the middle of winter can be quite the challenge if you don’t have the right attitude.  If there is one thing about New England winters that distress me more than anything else, it isn’t the cold.  Although, the bitter cold does cause me some concern.  It’s the early dark that causes me the most anguish.  That’s why if I have to choose a time for it to be, I will choose January over August.

I can see some of you scratching your heads wondering why I would choose the bitter cold of January over the warm summer evenings of August.  Here’s why:
In August, the daylight hours are decreasing.  If I must choose between cold and longer daylight and warm and shorter daylight, you better believe I want longer daylight.

 

 

One reason this is the case is that I’m no longer comfortable driving in the dark.  So because we are now in January in New England, things are looking up, things are getting better.  When I leave work at five pm, I can still see the sky.  I can still see the street without aid of headlights and streetlights.

 

We also start seeing warmer weather and flowers start blooming as well such as the Star Magnolia outside the EC Scranton Memorial Library

And it will only improve as the months move forward.  Then comes Sunday, March 8, when we turn the clocks and spring forward.

 

Woo Hoo!

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Breathing and Yoga

There is nothing about your physical awareness that connects you more to the Non-Physical aspect of your Being than that of your breathing.

Many assume that the process of breathing is only about your physical nature, but that is not the case. The process of breathing is much more than an essential function of your physical body. Indeed, it is the flowing of Spirit to you, and through you. That is the reason that when the focusing of Spirit through your physical body ceases, your breathing ceases, also.

Our meditation experience will induce a convergence of beneficial aspects for you, for as you relax into the natural rhythm of perfect breathing while hearing these spoken words, the Vibration of your physical being will gently surrender to the Vibrational frequency of your Source, and you will become one with your Source, inside the Vortex.

Through the hearing of our words in your relaxed state of allowing, you will allow the gentle tuning of your Vibrational frequency to match the frequency of your Source.

This will not be an exercise of effort or trying, but instead an exercise of releasing and allowing…gently allowing yourself to be who-you-really-are.

 

 

Abraham-Hicks

 

 

For Christmas this year, I received a one month free trial to Bikram Yoga in Madison, Connecticut.

Yoga

One of the things the teacher says is to breath through your nose and NOT to use your mouth.  This is a challenge for me to learn and I continue to catch myself breathing through my mouth, or the instructor happens to look up directly at me at the EXACT time that I AM breathing through my mouth.  Dammit!  LoL!

 

I understand that with practice and  time I will improve.  I know having been practicing yoga on my own for sometime now what an important ingredient breathing is to the art.

 

Breathing centers you.
Breathing lets you know that you’re alive.

 

Yoga and Spirit are one in the same; as is meditation and yoga.  Yoga is simply another form of meditation.  So it only makes sense that consciously breathing during yoga is bringing spirit into your very being, into your soul.

 

Were it NOT for my home practice of yoga, I surely wouldn’t be upright.  And now that I have the added discipline of going to class it will only help me get better.  I haven’t been aware that I should be breathing through my nose when practicing yoga.  Now when I do my yoga at home I will make a concerted effort to nose breath and close my mouth.  One lesson learned.  I have people worried about my doing Bikram Yoga and to be honest I let that worry deter me from going for awhile.

 

After attending three classes however, I now realize the benefits far outweigh the concern.  I’m sleeping so much more soundly.  My body, though, still feeling the strain is becoming more flexible and I’m able to maintain the poses the instructor puts us in for longer periods of time.  Yes.  There are some poses I still can’t perform but as the teacher says:
It is more important to do what you CAN do and let the other poses come when they come.

 

I can’t let fear and concern for my well being prevent me from doing something that may very well help my health.

 

We shouldn’t be afraid to move forward.
We should all occasionally do something that’s outside of our comfort zone.
We shouldn’t let someone tell us we can’t do something.

 

Here’s what’s funny about this:
Typically if you tell me no.  You can’t do that.  I’ll find a way to get it done.

 

I have to remember that in the future.  Bikram Yoga has been a Godsend and once my free month is up I WILL find a way to continue.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Fairy Godmother

Today will be the last column at Wisdom and Life
Until Monday, January 12, 2015

 

Something ENTIRELY off concept to start out today,
something TOO important NOT to discuss:
Life on Earth is only a panorama of vivid observations which seem real to you.
Why should afterlife seem less real to you?

And please do not fear it. Death is not the king of terrors.
Death is a friend. Consider it this way:
Do you fear to sleep at night? Of course not.
Because you know that you will wake again.

Think of death the same way.
As a sleep from which you will inevitably waken.

What Dreams May Come
Page 279

It is SOOOOO surprising
how much this book has influenced MY worldview.
How much it has permeated my life.
All one has to do is go back to Wisdom and Life
and read from my death and dying category
and my past lives category
to see how many concepts I have incorporated into my life
from What Dreams May Come.

Amazing upon reading this book a 2nd time
how much I’ve come to realize
what an important book it REALLY is to me.

What Dreams May Come MUST be on ALL of mankind’s reading list.
It MUST be required reading for EVERYONE.

 

 

 

Okay.  To today’s column:
Yesterday would have been my Fairy Godmother’s 96th birthday. We all have that one person in our lives that watches over us, does their best to help us when we are in need, that loves us unconditionally, that one person whom without we would surely be in a COMPLETELY different place.

 

Image from:

godmother

That person in my life turned out to be my Aunt Bet.  Before she transitioned in 2003, she made sure I wouldn’t be in a DIFFERENT place.  My Fairy Godmother gave me the one thing that I will be forever indebted to her for.

 

She gave me security!
She gave me her home!
She made sure I had a place to call home.
She gave me her condo which is a ten minute walk to town, a ten minute walk to work.

 

Aunt Bet in the end gave me more than that condo.  She gave me so much.

 

 

 

She was my taxi when I needed it.
She gave me her ear when I needed to vent.
She gave me countless other things to; things I will never be able to repay.
She was my Aunt Bet.

 

Connecting the Dots:

 

I said it before and I will say it again now:

I went through a temporary Hell in the early 1970s, living with verbal as well as physical abuse. My mom and I lived in Farmington, Connecticut at the time and she worked in Hartford. Just before she escaped that abusive marriage, she met someone who put my life on a COMPLETELY different trajectory.

 

Jack wound up being my second step dad. But he’s been on my life for so long now, that he may as well be my Dad.

 

Aunt Bet was HIS aunt.  And she became mine as well.  Had it NOT been for my personal hell in Farmington, I wouldn’t be where I  am today.  Had I not moved to Farmington with my mom, I wouldn’t be where I am today.  That’s why I’ve said previously that I wouldn’t want to change a thing in my life.  Changing any one thing will cause our lives to go somewhere different.  We wouldn’t recognize a THING in our lives if were to tamper with ANY one tiny event.

 

Everything that happens is supposed to happen.
Everything that happens has a ripple effect on the rest of our lives.

 

Had I changed that abusive relationship:
–My Fairy Godmother wouldn’t have shown up.
–I wouldn’t have the life I have now.
–I surely wouldn’t have the friends I have
.

 

And that security of having a home ten minutes from work?  You can definitely scratch that off.  If this isn’t a clear sign of predestination, then PLEASE tell me what one is.  I discussed this topic previously with my column:
Phone Call to the Future.  I recommend reading it.  I realize my personal worldview may not coincide with everyone, however if you can look back over the course of your own lives, I bet you will find similar challenges that connect the dots to a brighter future.

 

If this latest incarnation seems to be heading to your OWN personal Hell as mine did for a brief few years while I was young, take me as an example.
We ALL have to go through growing pains to become the person we are meant to be.
We all have to be caterpillars before we are butterflies.

 

Don’t despair if your latest incarnation seems to be heading in the wrong direction.  One minor pivot and your Fairy Godmother will be there.  Mine appeared when I needed her.  I didn’t know at the time that she would indeed become my Fairy Godmother.  We never remember what we plan when we choose our lives.  However, were it not for my going through that abusive relationship in the early 1970s, I wouldn’t be in the place I am now.  I wouldn’t have the life I have now.

 

Why do I continue saying this?  Repetition helps with memory.  I want to ensure that you understand that even though you may be in a storm at the moment, that life WILL get better, that this storm is SUPPOSED to happen, that this storm is simply a means of clearing the debris to make room for something brighter.

 

This ALWAYS happens.  You just have to be awake.  You just have to be aware.  It’s why I write Wisdom and Life.  This blog is my way of shaking you all out of your coma.  This blog is meant to wake everyone up.  Are you sufficiently shaken?

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

The Mystery of Life

Some things will always remain a mystery at this level of consciousness, and it is right that they should. So do not try to solve all the mysteries. Give the universe a chance. It will unfold itself in due course. Enjoy the experience of becoming.

Neale_Donald_Walsch

How many of us sometimes want to know the outcome?
How many of us are tempted to read the last few pages of a book to discover the ending?

 

Are you EVER happy after you know what’s going to happen?  Do you continue reading, or does knowing what happens spoil the rest of the book?  As it would be if you knew the outcome of your life.

 

What’s the point of life if you remember in advance what’s going to happen next?  Remember?  Did you say, remember?  Yes indeed, I said remember.  You know of course that our lives have been mapped out.  We sign  a contract as I said in in the previous linkage.  It is in Transition Hall where we choose our next life, where we sign that contract that details what will happen and when it will happen in our lives.  If you find your life spinning out of control, if you are unhappy, if you are distressed, all I can say is:
Your soul chose this experience.
Your soul needs this to move on, to grow.

 

If you don’t find resolution in this incarnation, you will find it in another one.  Your soul is eternal, your current body is just a shell.  Your soul is what teaches your body.  I understand that while you are in your current turmoil, if you aren’t in the place where you’re aware of your soul and and the fact that your experiences have been mapped out, it can be VERY distressing to you that life isn’t working out according to your plan, but do you think it would make life any better, if you knew the outcome?

 

What if the outcome appeared more challenging than the experience?  Would you give up?  Would you close the book and put it away?  Would you cash in your chips?

 

You do understand transitioning at your own hand is a one way ticket back to the physical?  You don’t go through Transition Tunnel.  You don’t go through Transition Hall.  There is no reunion with your Soul Group.

 

This is NOT a punishment.  You simply have to learn that when a challenge arises you must face it and beat it back.  Life is a gift that should not be returned.  Your transition is determined when you sign that contract I discussed earlier.  What happens when you breach a contract?  There are consequences, correct?  The consequence of transitioning at your own hand is a one way ticket back to the physical.  Not only that, but you’ll find the same challenge at the same time in your life that caused your distress.

 

The point is:
Life is a mystery.  Don’t look for a reason for every circumstance.  Live life and do your best to be happy. Find joy even in the challenge that life presents.

 

Challenges will arise.  Meet them and don’t run away.  If you can find a way to laugh at your present moment even if you don’t want to you’ll find life will be easier.  Stress will vanish and you’ll be happier.  Just remember:
Your life is mapped in Transition Hall.
Everything that is happening is supposed to be happening according to the contract your soul signed in Transition Hall.  Life is a gift.  Don’t return it prematurely!

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Chris

 

Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

 

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
