Be the most honest person that you know. Be trustworthy – worthy of the trust of others.๐Ÿ˜

Be the most honest person that you know. Be trustworthy – worthy of the trust of others.

Curb your worldly desires and you will strengthen your will. He who is deeply bound to material things runs into difficulty and unhappiness when they are taken away. Happy people enjoy worldly objects but do not become bound or wedded to them. Live a simple, uncluttered and productive existence. To simplify your life today, consider selling your television, stopping the junk mail, spending less, learning yoga, selling your car, practising meditation every morning and unplugging your ringing phone once in a while.

If you have not laughed today, you have not lived today. Laugh hard and loud. As William James said: “we don’t laugh because we are happy, we are happy because we laugh.”

Read The Charisma Factor – How to Develop Your Natural Leadership Ability by Robert J. Richardson and S. Katharine Thayer. It is a superb book for any aspiring leader, or a current one, who seeks to advance to the next level.

Travel often. The perspective offered by visiting new lands is important and allows one to appreciate the existence that we generally take for granted.

Each month set a physical fitness goal for yourself. Start to swim in July or learn to ski in January. The key is to arrive at a goal for the month, write it down, consider how to execute it and then, as the NIKE ad says: “Just Do It!”.

Things are always created twice. There is always the mental creation which precedes the physical creation. Just as plans for a house must first be set down on paper before the house is started, so too should your day be planned within your mind early in the morning before the day begins. Visualize the wonders you desire this life to bring and they will materialize as your subconscious mind starts to focus on the attainment of goals. This is a true law of Nature.

Walk to work and notice the wonderful beauty in Nature.

Sleep less, spend less, do more, live longer and be greater.

Kissing ๐Ÿ‘„๐Ÿ‘„

Scientific studies reveal that โ€œKissing boosts levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, and the endorphins.

Dopamine regulates sexual desire while serotonin and endorphins elevate mood. Kissing also increases blood levels of the hormone oxytocin, which mediates interpersonal attachment, and decreases levels of the stress hormone cortisol. As a result, kissing reduces anxiety and blood pressure (Castleman 2013). Furthermore, research on the physiological effects of kissing โ€œshow that men are more likely than women to initiate kissing with tongue contact. The reason is unclear, but saliva contains trace amounts of testosterone, the hormone responsible for sexual desire in both men and women. Researchers speculate that unconsciously men may open their mouths to deliver this hormone and perhaps increase womenโ€™s sexual receptivity (Castleman)โ€.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ฅ

“THE SHOW!” a poem! February 16, 2019 (Saturday)

Congratulations! Congratulations! YOU-ARE IN “THE SHOW!” [When is it?]
It’s ALWAYS! and-forever! This, we-ALL-do-know!
The show, it-is-“on-going;” it’s happy and it’s “clean;”
Yet, also: sad – and dirty, but, we’ve never seen,
Another show like it! ? It just never ends!
[Oh? and where is it?]
It’ s showing in The Heavens! “Well; will we PART as friends?”
“Oh! No, no! Never, Honey! for-The-Show-just-never-stops!
It just gets ‘a transference,’ but-only -if IT FLOPS!
For-when-a-show’s-a-flop (pause) in-one-venue fair,
The Lord of all this glorious LIFE!? sends-it: OVER THERE,
To-the-next-dimension! on-The-Mountain’s-OTHER-SIDE!
For shows they-have the tendency – to slip around – and slide!
But! Don’t get too depressed, my Love! and Don’t get so upset!
For a change of view – will always do to-turn-around-regret,
And, even-though The-Show hasn’t-changed one-little- bit,
With FRESH-ened EYES – we’ll-realize! It really is: A HIT!”

Perspective! Perspective! There is no boredom here!
Except when-sweet-cre-ti-vity – is absent!!!! It’s SO CLEAR:
“The play’s-[still]-THE-THING!” and “the play” of the show,
Is all about analysis! and strategies! and WOE!
For woe oft’-comes from “head use,” from “reasonable” conclusions,
From saying: “The Heart – (pause) is all about – delusions!
And -your-silly-idea[l]s – and- your-PUER–illusions!”
So-let’s-all get more THER-A-PY! and heal the contusions,
Which-we’ve-suffered-long-to-have IN OUR CLEVER HEADS,
So we can – FINALLY! hop-OUT of-our-comfy-beds,
And forget about love! and fluids and skin,
And-let The World COME right in!
And THE-WORLD loves Oh, it-loves: “The Mind,”
ALWAYS-Helping HELPING?! ALL-to-find:
ANYTHING – anything! other than The Heart,
For the World has fashioned – a most poisonous dart,
And it LOVES to embed IT, – oh, so deep!
Insuring-that-the-Heart- will never-make-a-peep,
But will just bleed – for all time!
UNLESS, the-dart’s-dislodged! WITH A SILLY, LITTLE RHYME!

“BEST FRIEND!”

“BEST FRIEND!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Reaction Time Of Love!” February 11, 2019! (Monday)

Your best friend? ‘TIS YOUR BODY!
For-you-take-it – to the potty!
You greet it early – early on,
On-each tomorrow, at the dawn,
When-you-get-stirr-ED, from your rest,
And each day? Well, it-is the best,
Means-of telling-you – IF-YOU’RE ALIVE!
Or – if-you have a chance to “thrive,”
In-this-new-day – to love and cry,
With others – and to-say, “Well, HI!”
To new friends, yes, and-to(o) some old,
TO BE real REAL – and – slightly BOLD,
To see all-the-beauty – EVERYWHERE,
Like – with the birdies! Look!? There’s-a-pair,
Who chirp – and ask – for-a-little-seed,
So they can feed&screw&breed!
In-the-perfect-cycle of this life,
It-finds-me with my lovely wife!
My BODY – opens up to her,
On-our-bilateral, guided-tour,
Of HER-BODY, plus: mind-and-spirit;
Her body? I-like! -to-be – quite-near-it,
Because-she-doth-attract-me-so!
[I AM ADDICTED! Don’t-you-know?]
MY BODY LOVES TO JUST RE-ACT,
TO HER! and-that’s-why – WE ARE ‘SHACKED!” ๐Ÿ™‚ – Mmmmm! Lovely!

Friends are relatives you are blessed you
Make for yourself
Comfortable๐Ÿ•Š


True friends
Are the ones who lift you up
When no one has noticed
When you’re down and out
Friends ๐Ÿ’™

Only those who are genuinely in love
Will Understand the difference between
Friends and
Best Friends who are lovers know the difference
Sleeping over is sex without love
True love ~ Sex = Best Friends
COUPLE ๐Ÿ’™

Luke Le Bree

Dearest friends, On your quest to receiving truth and gaining enlightenment, it is very important to start living your truth in your life, knowing truth (Love) is not enough , or practicing it just now and again.
It can only come alive in your spirit by your vibration being raised, for as this happens it reveals more pearls of wisdom. The more love the more wisdom. You are awakening each day, you are walking back to happiness, and the joy of life and all it has to offer.
I say walking back to happiness because you had that before you decided to separate yourself from love and create a new love, the ego, The time is now, the calling is going out its time to make ready yourself to return to Godship and the children of the God of Love.Dearest friends, On your quest to receiving truth and gaining enlightenment, it is very important to start living your truth in your life, knowing truth (Love) is not enough , or practicing it just now and again.

How to Recognize a Player So You Donโ€™t Get Played

Heโ€™s behaving like your boyfriend, but you just met. Keep your eyes wide open. Hereโ€™s how to recognize a player early on.
โ€”
One of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes is โ€œWhen someone shows you who they are believed them the first time.โ€ The best time to recognize a manโ€™s true character is when you first meet. On a first date, youโ€™re both hopefully on your best behavior, but your true character leaks out. Pay close attention to his actions and words. Do they line up? One of the advantages to dating after 50 is that I no longer go into a relationship with my eyes shut to the true nature of a man. No more wishful thinking or projecting what I hope lies beneath the surface. Iโ€™ve learned to accept the man I date for who he is today, not who he might become if onlyโ€ฆ But sometimes, even I can get fooled. But not for long.

Two years ago, I met a man online who was smart, attentive, and very sexy. He lived about an hour away so after a few phone calls, we decided to Skype to get a physical/energetic sense of each other. It was a fun conversation. He told me he found me to be very attractive and sexy. I enjoyed his compliments, but was a little concerned that โ€œsexyโ€ was the first thing on his mind. Nevertheless, it seemed as if we had many similar values, and I felt a kinship and connection for the first time in a long time. I was looking forward to meeting him that Saturday night.
On Friday, he called on his way home from work. I told him something that made him uncomfortable, and he abruptly shut down and canceled the date. I couldnโ€™t believe it. From my point of view, what I shared with him was intended to be kind and helpful, certainly not offensive. Oh, well, if he was that reactive and didnโ€™t have the decency to talk about his feelings, he wasnโ€™t the right guy for me. Even though I was a bit shaken, I felt I had dodged a bullet.
A few months ago, he contacted me on another dating site. I recognized him immediately, and remembered the good and the bad. Iโ€™m a big believer in a personโ€™s ability to grow and change, and I decided to discover who he was today. I was open to seeing if he was less reactive. He had so many redeeming qualities, why not give him another chance?
So, we began communicating again. The attraction was still there, and after a wonderful first phone call, he began texting. And texting. And texting.
The texting soon got sexy โ€“ no surprise here. I was playful but let him know that I wanted to be seen as a whole woman, not objectified as a sex object. He promised that he did see and appreciate all of me, and I really wanted to believe him.
We had our first โ€œmeet dateโ€ in a park, where we sat on the grass under a tree for an hour talking about our lives, our kids, and our favorite foods. No mention of sex! Maybe he had changed for the better.
Our first date
A few weeks later, we had our first real date. He drove to my neighborhood โ€“ I always appreciate when a man makes the effort to drive a distance to see me. He greeted me warmly with a kiss. We went out for drinks at a local restaurant. He held my hands throughout the evening. We spoke openly and transparently about what we learned from our past relationships. We talked about the big challenges we had overcome in our lives. It was all very sweet, but a little voice in my head said, โ€œHeโ€™s behaving like your boyfriend, and you just met. Keep your eyes wide open and slow things down.โ€
When we got back to his car, he became very passionate and persistent. He wanted to take me back to his apartment that night, and it was time to let him know my policy about sex in a relationship. I told him I was very attracted to him, and I donโ€™t have sex until Iโ€™m in an exclusive relationship, and weโ€™ve exchanged STD test results. He seemed to be okay with that โ€“ at least thatโ€™s what he told me.
His actions proved otherwise. His subsequent texts lost their sexiness and urgency. Instead of several texts a day, I now heard from him every few days. When I asked if he was okay because he seemed to be shutting down, he assured me that all was fine. He was just busy with work and life.
A few days later, after texting, โ€œLetโ€™s chat laterโ€, he disappeared. Poof!
When I reviewed the 100 texts exchanged over the preceding few weeks, I saw a pattern that echoed our very first encounter two years earlier. He misinterpreted my words several times. When I sensed a misunderstanding, Iโ€™d let him know that he seemed to be making assumptions and drawing the wrong conclusion, and I wanted to chat by phone to clear things up. Would he please call when he had the time? He promised he would. He didnโ€™t. Thatโ€™s because he was a player disguised as a good guy.
What I learned
Believe a man when he shows you his character the first time. Forgive mistakes. Donโ€™t forgive bad character. Recognize a player early on. Heโ€™s the guy whose actions and words donโ€™t line up.
Donโ€™t text anything of emotional significance. A relationship that begins with incessant texts is bound to lead to misunderstandings. Donโ€™t text anything of emotional significance. Pick up the phone to discuss instead. If heโ€™s unwilling to talk by phone, dump him.
Accountability is one of the cornerstones in a relationship. If he continually says heโ€™ll call, and he doesnโ€™t, dump him. If he makes plans and doesnโ€™t keep them, dump him.
Leave a man who doesnโ€™t respect your sexual boundaries. If he pushes for sex before youโ€™re ready and reacts negatively when you slow him down, heโ€™s only in it for the booty call. He will never value you for who you are.
Itโ€™s important to feel good when youโ€™re with him AND especially when youโ€™re NOT with him. I felt great when I was with this guy. But when we were apart, I felt anxious and entrusting. Thatโ€™s a big fat red flag. A good guy will show you that he likes you by staying in touch between dates.
If he disappears, let him go. Donโ€™t call or text and tell him what an*hole he is. He doesnโ€™t want to hear it. Heโ€™s a coward and not worthy of your time. Years ago, I would have given a man like this a โ€œpiece of my mindโ€. I thought that was the dignified thing to do. Itโ€™s not. Especially this early in the game. We had just met. He did me a favor by showing his character so quickly. Instead of contacting him, I got back to living my fabulous life without him.
Yes, I let myself be taken in by his manliness, sexiness, intelligence, and seemingly shared values. But not for long. Thatโ€™s been the major shift for me as I do the inner work on my journey to find love. Now my eyes are wide open. I date with dignity and self-respect. And each man is my teacher. I know how to cut the players loose before my heart takes over. I can balance my head and my heart.
Iโ€™ve learned to have self-compassion and not expect to always get things right the first time around. Dating is complex, and the more you learn about yourself, the better the outcome of your relationships.

Don’t look back
Move forward
๐Ÿค—
You are uniquely amazing
๐Ÿค—

Prayer

Heavenly Father, You have called us to grow in grace, to increase our understanding of Jesus and to develop a close and intimate relationship with You. Lord, this is what I desire to do, and I pray I may come to know You more and more each day.


Amen

Dear Lord
Goodbye America
Until we meet again
Remember how loved you are America

Animal Rights

โ€œHuman beings are a part of the animal kingdom, not apart from it. The separation of “us” and “them” creates a false picture and is responsible for much suffering. It is part of the in-group/out-group mentality that leads to human oppression of the weak by the strong as in ethic, religious, political, and social conflicts.โ€ โ€• Marc Bekoff


A LITTLE ROMANCE?”

A LITTLE ROMANCE?” another (moosh-ee) poem Feb. 4, 2019 (Moan-day)

When a “little romance” be-comes – (an) “eternal affair,”
An-internal-investigation – may be warranted “there,”
To-discover-The-Nature: of LOVE-and/or-PASSION;
F – – – ing around – is always in fashion,
WHEN LOVE-MEETS NON-RESISTANCE,
And BOTH-PARTIES HAVE-INSISTENCE,
Then, it-doesn’t-require-much-persistence,
To-maintain – this-comfortable-distance,
For, it-cumes-on-so-easily, with-everything-in-place,
And we-don’t-even-need-lubricant -to-re-populate-the-race,
With some new human beings, alive – and-in-Love,
Fluids-drip off-our-lips, below and above,
And the dribble just spills- upon your longing-hips,
(Which-ain’t-there-from-me, for-I’m-“down,” doing-“dips!”)
Your-hips-wiggle-and-sway – in-their-easy-Southern-Style!
Yeah,-baby! A-Little-Romance –
Can sure make us smile!

Powerful Ways To Instantly Boost Your Self Esteem

Powerful Ways To Instantly Boost Your Self Esteem

To boost your self-esteem can seem like a monumental task, especially when youโ€™re experiencing self-defeating thoughts and feelings. However, when you step back, you can see that low self-esteem is really just a continuous cycle, and breaking any part of that cycle can stop the whole thing in its tracks.

1. Do Something Kind For Someone
When youโ€™re in a low self-esteem cycle, it can be difficult to see outside of yourself. You become so focused on what your limitations are that you canโ€™t see the pain others might be experiencing.

But when you actively seek out doing something kind for someone else or something good for your environment, your focus shifts. Not only will your obsessive, negative thoughts about yourself stop, youโ€™ll also begin to think positive things about yourself. Positive actions attract positive thoughts.

2. Take Care Of Your Appearance
Your outward appearance is often a reflection of how you feel on the inside. Have you ever noticed that when youโ€™re sick, people say โ€œYou donโ€™t look wellโ€? Our bodies are connected to our spirit and mind and they all reflect each other.

When you have low self-esteem, it often shows through how you take care of yourself.

Small things like picking out something flattering to wear, taking time to style your hair differently, or accessorizing an outfit can seem vain and superficial, but they can actually make you immediately feel better about yourself. The lesson here is not about vanity; itโ€™s about treating yourself kindly.

3. Change Your Scenery
A great (and fun!) way to break a low self-esteem cycle is to do something completely out of the ordinary.

It can be as simple as traveling a different route to work in the morning, taking a short weekend vacation to a place youโ€™ve never visited, or working from a cafe youโ€™ve always wanted to check out.

Doing something youโ€™ve never done before or being somewhere youโ€™ve never been to can quickly refresh your mind and break negative thought patterns. We have a tendency to get stuck in a small bubble, neglecting to see that the universe is vast and our problems are usually a lot smaller than we make them out to be.

Changing your scenery can give you a fresh perspective and motivate you to make positive changes rather than dwell in the negative. Give it a shot.

4. Write Down Your Accomplishments
Think back to all of the accomplishments youโ€™ve had. Get out a pen and paper and start writing them down.

It seems simple, but as your list grows, youโ€™ll start to see that not only have you accomplished some impressive things, you are capable of even more.

You might begin to see patterns of times when you felt really good about yourself and accomplished a lot of great things. This exercise can help you tune in to the parts of yourself that know youโ€™re adequate, capable and extraordinary!

5. Teach Someone Something
There are definitely things you know that other people donโ€™t.

Maybe youโ€™re a great writer or youโ€™re really proficient in math. Perhaps you know how to organize a messy closet, or you know how to change a tire on a car.

Simple knowledge that you may take for granted could be something that someone else is seeking to learn.

By teaching someone a skill or imparting some of your know-how, you not only share knowledge with them, you prove to yourself how amazing and unique of person you are, one that can share valuable gifts with the world.

“OFFICE VISIT TO THE DOCTOR WE BOTH KNOW AND RESPECT!”

“OFFICE VISIT TO THE DOCTOR WE BOTH KNOW AND RESPECT!” a poem a.k.a.: “An Intriguing Encounter At The Office!” January 23, 2019 – Wednesday

I went to Doctor Roman’s office this afternoon, and (s)he is married!
“I am feeling a bit anxious and harried,
Because I found this genital wart [on my genitals!!] today!
[I’m a little ‘short’ this week, so-how-much-will-I-need-to-pay?]
[It COULD be cancerous!] So, what would you suggest?
[I-know-I’ve-fucking-got-CANCER!] What-alternative is the best?
[I’M GONNA DIE!] I feel awfully fragile!
[In bed are you pretty agile?]
[FUCK ME! Just DO IT!] So, you DO agree,
I should take something! [If I-show-you-mine, can I see,
YOURS?] Yes, I’m-so-concerned; thanks-for-your-attention!
[Right NOW! Fuck me! I’m HORNY, and-did-I-mention],
I’m having headaches! [‘Cause I’m NOT GETTING ANY]!
Before I came, I called my partner Henny,
And (s)he said: [Screw me NOW!]
That I was just ‘having a cow!’
[It ITCHES! Scratch it!] But I may be bleeding there too;
I just needed – to know what to do!
[Oh, GOD! I’m hoooo-rny!] Thanks-for-the-recommendation, Doctor!”

{“Yes, Henny, I WAS able to talk-t-‘her!’
(S)he’ll-be-fine; a placebo I gave-‘her;’
Yes, at the regular time, unless Gladys-is-in-labor!
No, (s)he doesn’t suspect us, I do not think;
Yes, I know! Our affair would raise such a stink,
But, just know, (s)he’s so unstable, IF (s)he (ever) finds out,
WE’RE BOTH DEAD! A plantars wart* was-all-it-was-about!”}

* – Plantars warts are small growths that usually appear on weight-bearing areas! So how can anyone get such a growth on their genitals? (pause) :0 –

Achieve personal success ๐Ÿค—

Develop the wonderful habit of a daily swim. It will promote excellent health, keep you relaxed and concentrated, lean and trim. Swimming is not stressful on the body, provides a great workout for the lungs and requires little time to do effectively. Remember that in a fit body resides a fit mind.

People who are doing good today are ensuring their happiness for tomorrow.

The key to successful time management is doing what you planned to do when you planned to do it. Keep your mind fully on the task at hand. Only then will you achieve all your goals and have time for the things that matter most. Although it is imperative to be flexible (a bow too tightly strung will soon break), following your planned schedule requires no more than simple discipline.

An excellent visualization technique: if you are worrying about something, picture the words of your worry on a piece of paper. Now ignite a match to the paper and watch the worry dissipate into flames. Bruce Lee, the great martial arts master employed this mental control device regularly.

Compartmentalize your worry. Set aside a certain amount of time to ponder over a problem and map out an effective plan of attack and your options. Once this is done, have the mental fortitude not to come back to the problem and go over it again and again. The human mind is a strange creature – things we want to forget keep coming back and those things we want to remember are not there when we want them. But the mind is similar to a muscle and the more you flex it the stronger it will become. Make it your servant. Feed it only the best nutrition and information. It will serve you well and perform magic if you believe in it.

Peak performers are physically relaxed and mentally engaged.

To be at your performance peak mentally, your body must be loose physically and relaxed. It is now beyond dispute that there is a mind-body connection and when the body is supple, free from tension, the mind is clear, calm and focused as well. This is why yoga is such a beneficial activity. It keeps the body relaxed so that the mind can follow. Basic stretching for 15 minutes a day is also an excellent way to release tension that builds up as a result of our life in this highly complex and fast moving, but wonderful world. Try having a massage or power lounging in a Jacuzzi. Relax the body and you relax the mind.

Prepare a detailed financial plan for the next few years and follow it. Seek out financial advice if you need it. A powerful strategy for financial mastery is also a simple one: save 10% of all you make for long-term growth (take this off the pay cheque before you have a chance to spend it). If you can invest $200 a month for the next 30 years at an annual return rate of 15%, you will end up with $1.4 million dollars. Being wise with your money is one of the very best investments to make. Financial security leads to personal freedom.

Readers are leaders. U.S. President Bill Clinton read more than 300 books during his short time at Oxford University. Some top performers read a book a day. Seek out knowledge and information. We have truly entered the age of massive information and those who are proactive can use this to their advantage. The more you know, the less you fear.

Get into the excellent habit of reading something positive and inspirational before you go to bed and as soon as you awake in the morning. You will soon note the benefits as these thoughts will be supporting you throughout the day.
