“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

What do you think?

Personally, I feel that knowing one’s self and managing circumstances to the best of our ability is the only way individuals can find peace.  The only thing we can control in life is how we react, respond and confront the situations we personally face. Unfortunately, circumstances are not dictated by us, nor can we foresee them (at least for sure not 100% of the time).


Discourse on Love

Discourse on Love

Love is a big deal for us humans 🙂 It is something we feel that has transformed in definition and vision throughout our existence.  The question arises on what love has become defined and seen as and if what do you think about this idea of what love is.  I posed a question and shared my thoughts in my Google+ community Inspiring Human Potential and would love to hear what you think too.

What do you think about humanity and the definition that has developed in the area of #love ?  Is it love to expect your loved ones to give you something in return or is it love purely because of a synergy that you feel?  Would you agree that love is endless and a never ending energy?

Personally, I believe love is energy and something you direct towards others always.  I don’t feel it’s something you can direct towards one person or one thing, but rather that it is felt and expressed in everything we do.

Discourse on Leadership

Discourse on Leadership

I was pondering leadership and how some styles are inspiring and effective, while others are the total opposite and I posted this to my G+ community: “To lead and help others doesn’t mean you are perfect, but there are traits that seem to match up for effective and great leadership styles versus ineffective and stagnant ones. 

The famous saying of how ‘power corrupts’ would you say that bad leaders were corrupted at one point with their gaining leadership or is it merely a personality type that doesn’t inspire others, but maybe wants to control them?”

Personally, I feel it’s more about character traits, although I realize the topic is an in-depth and intricate one.  For the longest time power and corruption made more sense, but the style of leadership seems to stem from who we are, our needs, perspectives and what we believe is just or not.  As a person grows to a position of ‘power’ they may be inclined to make compromises and take things for granted (after getting used to a certain lifestyle), but the basis of pursuing individual growth for all versus indicating what is and what isn’t, what one should think or not think, and basically keeping control; these are the characteristics that affect the effectiveness of the leader and they are a part of our thought process and beliefs not power.

What about you? What do you think? It would be great to exchange ideas 🙂

Consistency speaks louder than words and actions

“Actions are louder than words; as is consistency. Blend the two together and you have the truth of that moment, of that person, of that character.” – FNM

I saw a quote that stated “I don’t believe what you say. I believe what you do.”  At first impulse I wanted to ‘like’ the Facebook post, but then I paused and remembered that I know many individuals who speak and act differently, but their words are actually true to their thoughts (even if not portrayed through their actions).

This pause made me want to underline how consistency in actions and words is much more essential to finding the truth than solely looking at actions and words.

Sometimes people may say things they believe, but not have the impulse to apply them. They could refrain due to an issue in their life we don’t know about or it could be that they merely take words and what they say lightly (giving it no weight whatsoever).

Either way, their true person, character or way of behaving and/or reacting in a particular moment will come out through their consistent actions and words.

It isn’t merely because an individual says one thing and does another; or acts one way, but doesn’t speak it that will (or could) unfold their person and who they are. It is through the years of getting to know them, being around them, noticing the little things they do or don’t do, say or don’t say.

Empathy, willingness to look farther than your subjective views and ways, no outlines and no expectations is what can make a blind person see.  Anything else is a veiled truth created by one’s own subjective views and schemes.

“Getting stuck on one part of your life is like living in stagnant mode. Don’t allow the pebbles along the road to chain you down and drown you from seeing the beauty that surrounds you in life. Learn from it, turn that page of your life, and keep walking.” – FNM

Making the best from what life throws at you is not the only option we have, but it is one of the best options for those who wish to live fulfilling and happy lives.

We all want answers; sometimes we get them and sometimes we don’t. What’s important is how you choose to live the life you do have and to find comfort and strength from yourself, loved ones and the beauties that do exist on this planet and in this life form.

We can choose to focus our attention on those so-called ‘negatives’; after all, it is our life and therefore a personal choice.  It’s just sad to think that someone chooses to live a painful existence versus appreciating the goodness they do have, including themselves.
