Cash Cayen loves her local library. She has been participating in library programs such she was just a few months old. So she was particularly disappointed this summer when she tried to register for a robotics class that was being offered at the library and was told that she the class was for “boys only.”
“Act as if.” It’s a great line from the movie “Boiler Room” (and if you haven’t seen that movie before, check it out because it’s great!). It’s also a great line to remember when you are trying to use the Law of Attraction to bring you what you want.
Allow me to present an important distinction that you must become aware of if you wish to develop your intuition to profound levels. Appearances can be deceiving. A true master of intuition knows how to suspend judgment and see behind the surfaces of people, places and circumstances. He can sense the true nature of things, that which is their essence.
There are very few certainties in life & there are no guarantees that the life we are living today will be the same for us tomorrow. But one thing that will remain consistent through your life is, you will continually have challenges & problems to overcome & while these challenges will differ from person to person, the solution for any problems can be broken down into 7 key areas for development.
“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” — Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll) Go Easy on the Mundane Life can be wonderful when you’re a dreamer. Life can be even more wonderful when you are a dreamer and a doer! Nothing trips us up more that boredom or monotony. As […]
In 2013, Komal Ahmad, now 25, launched a phone app to encourage private companies and event planners to donate extra food. Feeding Forward is a not-for-profit service that allows users to arrange—on-demand— for Feeding Forward drivers to pick up leftover food and deliver it directly to areas and people that need it most. In San Francisco, the app has helped feed over 575,000 homeless people by redistributing nearly 690,000 pounds of excess food.
Walking along urban streets, I’m continually astonished at the blades of grass poking up through the cracks in the concrete, the songs of the birds as backdrop to the traffic noise, the light of the sun finding its way around the ninety-something-degree corners of aging, brick buildings. Evidence of the irrepressible pulse of life surrounds me, dismantling the arrogant notion that we can stop the flow.
While I understand that to “be” something, you must fit the criteria of what “being” that certain something actually means. But when it comes to Spirituality, who got to decide and why do we all just go along with it? I also get it that with increased self-awareness, intuition, centeredness, connection to Source, the Divine, God or whatever name you prefer to use there comes the draw towards certain activities, types of people and even thoughts, as well as the draw away from certain activities, types of people and again…thoughts. But when we start to invest our own perceptual opinions onto something greater than ourselves; something that is meant to encompass everything and be bias to none (see all in love and everything as connected), to me it seems to not only defeat the purpose, but chip away at what it such an incredibly and personally beautiful experience to each and every one of us.
As you forgive your father, you not only set him free but also yourself. You set yourself free from the generational patterns of the past, passed down through your lineage. In doing so, you also give a gift of freedom to the generations of your future.
Success is a science. Once you’ve learned the rules of the game, you no longer need to question what your future will bring. As Abraham Lincoln has famously said—“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”
When the Going Gets Tough Life get’s hairy — let’s face it. “Perseverance, secret of all triumphs” — Victor Hugo Let me paint a metaphorical picture: You’re standing at the checkout, waiting to pay. You’re going to make a beautiful meal when you get home and you’re salivating at the very thought of those steamed baby […]
By Omar Cherif I always held that we can unknowingly inspire others just by being ourselves. We only need to believe it can happen for it to happen. The following is a simple illustration of how between inspiring and being inspired, the process of transference of inspiration works both ways. Last year, I watched […]
Janice Kaplan: Gratitude isn’t just a feeling, it’s an action. Expressing gratitude by writing in a journal, taking a photo, or shooting a video creates a lasting impression that can bring more gratitude into the world—for children and adults. So for this Father’s Day, I teamed up with the impressive educators at the New York Film Academy. Inspired by my book, they sponsored a competition inviting young filmmakers to create gratitude video for their dads.
Children learn more from watching their parents than from listening to them – more is caught than taught. As parents, this puts great weight on how we conduct our lives. It requires us to be intentional about how we live. It requires us to self-reflect and evaluate if our lives match our words. And it requires us to be intentional about identifying the lessons we hope our kids will take from us. Here then, as my two children get older, are the 35 Things I Hope They Will Say About Their Dad. They represent the 35 most important lessons I hope they will learn from my life.
