What is it that stops you from jumping off a 5 story building, is it the fear of falling, the sudden stop at the bottom or knowing that you cannot fly?
As a youngster you lay in bed at night fearing to let you leg or arm drop over the side of the bed lest the bed monster gets you. You knew there was a monster in your closet waiting to attack you the moment you built up enough courage to move out of your position.
Again you felt that natural fear when you went into water over your head. What was it that allowed you to finally give way and jump into the water, what happened to the fear?
These were not natural fears; they were a learned response since you were an infant. A baby has only two natural fears; they are for loud noises and being dropped. The rest of the fears come from training, those taught to us by others and personal experience.
We do not know about monsters or drowning until we see them on TV or hear about someone drowning, or our parents tell us about the dangers. We forget that babies are natural swimmers and we don't know about monsters but we can relate to them because of our natural fear of the unknown.
Fear is a caution light; it is built in for our protection so that we do not rush into something that is beyond what we believe to be our own limitations. We do not jump because we know that we cannot fly or we cannot swim.
Fear is the greatest enemy of mankind and especially the fear of the unknown, the unproven, and the untamed. Fear has such a strong grip that it can make us physically ill the second we contemplate moving out of our box and it is fear alone that holds us back.
There is one thing only that can overcome fear and it is absolute, there is nothing that can equalize or neutralize it. Faith, trust, and believing pale in the light of "knowing." It is "knowing," that is the great manifestor, the creator of all that is and when we get into the position of knowing, fear is not a factor. If you know that you can fly, you will have no fear of jumping. If you know that you can swim, you will have no fear of going in over your head. When you get into the position of knowing a thing you are as God, you are the creator of what it is you desire. When you say you know you can do this and it is your truth, the deed shall be done and nothing can change that until you know something else.
Man's greatest fear is in moving out of his religious box. Men of great minds and conviction treble at the thought of angering a vengeful God. Wise men fall to their knees and whimper for forgiveness should they question the word of this God. There is no greater fear than that of crossing the will of God.
As antiquated as this thought is, humanity has been acquiescing to an old God for centuries and by man's own definitions of what God is and what he may or may not demand of him. Humankind has evolved in all areas but this one. He still carries the paper chains of fear the bind him. These chains would drown him if he jumped in deep water. He would hit the street very quickly should he carry them with in off the building. Although man has evolved, his God has not. Man fears any change in God and he does this because it is he who defines God and he defines God in his own image. His God has not evolved because man's image of God has not evolved and this is because this image is cocooned in a web of fear.
Man's greatest "fear factor," is, that should he redefine a new God, God would retaliate and condemn him evermore to damnation.
God is "life," the words are interchangeable and life is constantly changing by definition, and therefore God must change. To say otherwise, is to say that God is not life. Mankind fears God because man is God in human form and humanity fears itself, therefore if this is to be believed, God must fear man. The fear is unfounded and inappropriate for this time in our evolution; it no longer works for us. It is time to question the whole image we have of God. It is time to know a new God and with that "knowing," fear does not exist. The fear can not be overcome until we "know" the God that is within us-is us! For it is just as certain that we can not jump into the deep water until we know that we can make it.

Anamchara - Living a Meaningful Life
At some stage of living your life you will ask the question "What does it mean to be here?"
Universal Thought System Language Keywords
Before we are able to use the Universal Thought System in a positive expansive manner, we must learn to use certain words in our language more effectively. The prime characteristic of the Universal Thought System is its consistency. It may not be used to manipulate. It may not be used to gain an advantage. It treats everyone equally. It eliminates the negative side of opposites. Why is this Universal Language so critical to our progress? In our thoughts and actions, we either seek idols or we seek truth. When we find the truth all our answers are provided. Truth contains all answers to every problem. Truth has always existed and will always exist. Our beliefs and feelings color our truth. They act as filters between our truth and our illusions.
World Kindness Day
Once upon a time, in ancient India, a beggar favored a certain foot of land in a village square. He wanted to be rich, but he only knew dire poverty. One day he died on the spot where he had been begging for decades. The villagers decided to bury him on the spot where he had spent decades begging. They marveled when they found that only a few feet beneath the surface lay a treasure chest from an ancient kingdom.
Shaping the Future with Positive People Power
We must shape the future and control our destiny.
Life is what happens to you, while you are making other plans. ( John Lennon )
Listening to Your Heart!
Trying to predict stock price movements is necessary, of course. After all, when stock prices fall, the cost of borrowing and of issuing new equity can rise, and falling stock prices can both undercut the confidence of employees and customers and handicap mergers. Unfortunately, however, most of these predictions are no more than rough guesses, because the tools CEOs use to make them are not very accurate. Net present value (NPV) may be useful for estimating the long-term intrinsic value of shares, but it is famously unreliable for predicting their price over the next few quarters. Conversations with sample groups of investors and analysts, conducted by the company or by investment bankers, are no more reliable for gauging market reactions.
Save the Planet with Your Joy!
Your own level of frequency raises or lowers the overall frequency of humanity, and because being at higher frequency equals the experience of joy, it is literally true that in order to raise up the world and deliver it from suffering, it is imperative that you are joyful! And most people think saving the world requires sacrifice and suffering! In fact, the very opposite is true. Indeed, the most magnanimous-and effective-thing you can possibly do for the planet and its inhabitants is to raise your frequency up out of pain and struggle to that of peace, joy, and ease so that the collective joy-level increases, thus lifting all out of pain and struggle. What a grand plan! We are personally rewarded beyond measure for doing what needs to be done. It is built into the Creator's Design.
Love the Opportunity
Somebody said you have to love what you do, but that's not necessarily true. What is true is that you have to love the opportunity. The opportunity to build life, future, health, success and fortune.
Care And Maintenance Of The Human Hard Drive
The human brain is very much like a hard drive. If you stop to think of it, they are both filled with billions of tiny bits of information, stored in the memory cells just waiting to be accessed. They both use electrical energy to find those bits and put them together to recreate something that we have placed there. They work on demand, and we expect them to instantly give us what we want.
Comfort and Achievement
I'll share with you one of my deepest insights about achievement comfort and the desire to control even the slightest bump in the great ride we have come to call Life.
I love the sounds of melting snow-plink, plink, ting, ting, ting, a staccato drip on sloped metal roofs, the occasional loud crack of a giant icicle, the bubble and gurgle of the mountain brook as it swells and tumbles over polished rocks on its way to the valley below.
Brilliance in Balance
"For everything you have missed, you have gained something else; and for everything you gain, you lose something else." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Let's look at the lesson we should all pay attention to in the Bible, the flight of the Israelites from Egypt. Was their escape through the Red Sea merely an exploit by God or was there some other signifigance to this act?
Why are we trying so hard? It is like we are in a race to get somewhere and we don't even know where that is anymore. We have lost contact with spirit and the purpose we have given our lives and we are going around in circles chasing our tails.
An Unquenched Thirst

Tomorrow May be Too Late
A high school senior, looking forward to going to college, inspiring to become a doctor kisses her parents and dashes out the door to go to school, smiling, and waving goodbye -- never realizing that before day's end, she would meet the fate of a deadly bullet.
On Sunsets and Telecom
Another perfect sunset seen from Redondo Beach, California. Since arriving here in June I've had the pleasure of watching many sunsets while jogging or walking along the Redondo "Strand," and have yet to tire of the endless beauty of each individual sunset. Each one is stunning, each one is different. While jogging along this evening, watching today's contribution to my portfolio of California memories, the thought came to me that sunsets are a lot like the day to day activities that challenge our lives.

Whats Your Reason For Waiting?
The fever had been high late into the night, but at 2:30 A.M., it broke. The little girl's mother breathed out in relief. She'll be O.K. in the morning, she thought.
To Raise Your Frequency, Just Turn on the Joy!
The feeling response to being filled up with Love from your Spirit is joy. Higher frequency energy-Love-activates a joy response in your emotional body. I like to say that joy is a frequency-but it is more accurate to say that joy is your emotional response to higher frequency. When you are at a certain frequency, feeling the Love from Spirit moving through you to Spirit, the natural feeling you have is joy. And here is something truly empowering to know: when you feel joy, you are at a higher frequency.
