    Setting Expectation Traps

    Did you set any traps last night?  What about this morning?  Are you setting a trap now? Expectations are traps.

    With whom will you spend your time today? Friends or Foes? Sometimes it may seem awkward trying to analyze the effect that our friends and acquaintances have on our lives.

    Difficult People

    Every person with whom you battle today, has many other people in his or her life with whom he or she gets along quite well. You cannot look at a person who seems difficult to you without also looking at yourself. While I don’t like to admit it, some of the most difficult people in […]

    Why Do You Eat What You Eat?

    We’ve all heard the saying, “you are what you eat”. I agree. Yes it is very important “what we eat”, but I believe what is even more important is “why do we eat, what we eat?” How is your relationship with food? Does food control your thinking? Do you eat to live or live to eat? […]

    What’s up with that? “Receiving and giving are opposite energies that are inextricably linked together in the natural flow of life, like inhaling and exhaling.  If one aspect of that cycle doesn’t function, the entire cycle ceases to function and the life force cannot move freely. If you can’t inhale, you will soon have nothing to exhale, and before long, your […]
