Spiritual Awakening: Pay Attention and Engage!!!
As you reflect on your interactions with people do you often say I wish I would have engaged with that person? How many opportunities are you missing because you are so wrapped up in the outer appearance of someone or the materialistic trappings of someone? I was at a seminar a few years back and tried to engage with a few people who basically blew me off and then I was invited to attend a gratitude workshop which I did and one of the presenters was a women who had blown me off. I didn’t let the emotions of her blowing me off affect my participation and I kept fully engaged. As we went to walk the labyrinth I stopped by a booth that had oracle cards and I struck up a conversation with the person at the both. I went to walk the labyrinth and afterward the presenter pulled me aside and said I am sorry I looked past you a few weeks ago at the other seminar. I later did a one on one session with this presenter and she said wow you taught me a valuable lesson to look beyond the outer and look to the inner. The key is pay attention and engage make all your interactions positive by having the goal of being of service and value to the people you are engaging with. Remember not everyone will resonate with you and not everyone will engage with you but those who pay attentions and engage will be the one’s whose lives are enriched.
take time to pay attention and engage as there will come a time when you find yourself wishing for one more day to spend with someone that is now an angel in heaven. As you go about living your life everyday look for ways to lift someone up by spreading positivism and kindness for there will be a time when you reflect and wish you would have done something for the people who GOD called home. Take a moment to pay attention and engage with those who you come in contact so when their final day comes or your final day comes you have no regrets. People will come from miles and miles to attend a funeral and give flowers and say nice things when someone is called home to GOD I say don’t wait until that moment do it while they are living. Take action to pay attention and engage. I remember everyone complaining about how difficult it was to deal with my grandmother and how she rubbed everyone the wrong way and how great it was that I made it a point to visit her and take her out of her assisted living facility to do lunch or dinner on occasion I said no big thing that is what you do for those you love you pay attention and you engage. My Grandmother has been an angel in heaven for many years and while some still complain about how she was I remember the moments that I paid attention and engage.
When you stop and pay attention and engage you positively impact the lives of others in ways far beyond your imagination. Each time you help someone you help yourself as you grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. In stopping to pay attention and engaging yo begin to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. Today I was at Dunkin Donuts writing this blog when a women asked if I could buy her a donut. In the past I would have said now but today I reached into my pocket and gave her $1.25 in quarters without hesitation in doing this I knew that I would be rewarded in the long term as when you give without expectation of return you receive. It is my hope that everyone who reads this will find a way to do a kind deed and share it in the comments so we can encourage others to pay attention and engage.
It is when we pay attention and we engage that we become aware and awake and thus we are able to touch the lives of those around us and find a purpose for why we are here. It is in becoming a lifter that you are lifted.

Spiritual Awakening: Kiss Today Goodbye!!!
One of my favorite Broadway Shows is a Chorus Line as it has so many spiritual lessons such as the lesson in this song about letting go and doing things for love. At the end of each day of you laughed a little, cried a little, and reflected a little you have had a good day. As you kiss today goodbye at the end of each day ask yourself did I live my life in joy today and did my life bring joy to others today? If you can say yes to these two questions you had an excellent day. When you kiss today goodbye you can become a singular sensation by shining your light and illuminating the world. It all starts by taking action and setting a positive tone for the day so that when you kiss the day goodbye you are filled with peace, love, joy, and prosperity.
As you kiss the day goodbye also ask yourself how you stood out among others? Where was I of value and service? As you reflect on the day look at all the good that came into your life and knock out any negativity. As you awaken and become more and more aware you will see that you truly are a singular sensation who makes everyday count. As you go day by day and take full advantage of the opportunities to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually you will see your life being filled with more bliss and abundance. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: The Love Boat!!!
As I watched the news, which I rarely do these days as it is fretted with negativity I thought the solution to the world’s problems are simple as it all boils down to getting everyone on board The Love Boat and seeing that we are more alike then we are different. It is a matter of becoming an action taker and making love and kindness part of your daily routine. It doesn’t cost any money to be kind and helpful to one another. If we stop for a moment and stop playing the blame game and commit to being loving and kind in all we do our world will become a giant love boat. It is through the spiritual awakening process that we grow and begin to understand that we are all divine children of GOD capable of much love. I have come to live by a principle first taught by Mother Teresa which says if you can not do great things do small things with great love. In doing so you will find that you start and continue to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. It is when we make love one of our core foundations and adopt love songs as anthems that we can all board the love boat and reach the heights that GOD has in store for us. In showing love and doing something as simple as smiling at someone you will create a ripple effect that spreads kindness and increases the flow of positivism thus enriching people’s lives. I have come to understand that when we board the love boat we must also carry with us and implement The Four Agreements as taught by Don Miguel Ruiz.
In practicing and teaching others these agreements we can begin to come alive and change our world. When we are committed to making a positive difference in the world we can bring people together and a s a result our communities become stronger. If we start to realize that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations and understand that we are all our brothers keeper we will see a positive change in our world that drives out the negativity and as a result our world becomes a better place one person at a time. Many say it is impossible to bring people together because of all the hate that has been festering for years. I say what about all the love that has been given over the years. What if instead of watching the news and all the so called reality shows you turned off the TV and went out and interacted with people and showed interest in them and did what you could to help them. Think of how great this would make others feel and how great you would feel knowing that instead of complaining and pointing fingers you were a lifter and as a result your personal, professional, and spiritual life was improved.
