There are only people and things and things don’t hug back.

This generation, children, teenagers and people under forty, have a tremendous ignorance gap because of the false science and values they have learned on television and from advertising since they were infants.

Problems cannot and will not be solved by all–natural, pH-balanced, over the counter, 1-800, cure-all-dot-com. Even though you can use the net to meet, communicate, write and set up contacts with people, intimacy comes from contact not distance. Don’t let the soul-destroying power of technological advances bring you to a place were there is no room for music, nature, or real friends. Get off the Internet, hear the person speak, observe the body language, see the demeanor, and meet people personally.

GOLD

Kim said, “Don’t lecture me. I have read A Way To Live.”

Satoru answered, “Life is not a dress rehearsal.”

“Would you buy gold at half price?”

“Would you improve your health and happiness if it only cost you a few minutes?”

“Do you believe in Genies?”

If your answer is “no” go back to sleep. If your answer is “yes,” will you be aggressive enough to rub the bottle? If not, it does not matter what you believe. Even a genie, someone that can grant you your life’s wishes, needs some encouragement. If you are so passive, inhibited, inflexible or scared that you refuse to believe or to rub the bottle then you suffer the consequences of inaction, and your chance to fulfill your dreams is lost forever.

So, since life is action, sign up for the blog and if you read the book you will have some new thoughts that will improve your life.

Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.

Communication

I can remember when long distant phone calls were very expensive. You tried to stay under three minutes because after that the price increase soared. Now I talk to and at the same time see my friends all over the world for nothing through Skype. But what really got to me was the range of the World Wide Web. I went to the dashboard of my site and found that people from forty-seven counties has visited my site.

After you made an initial contact you have to maintain and keep the connection.
Life is Action.

The ancestor to every action is a thought. Emerson

A woman dropped her keys.  She got down on her hands and knees and searched for them.  She prayed to her God that she would find them. A man came over to her and asked what was wrong.  She explained that she lost her keys.  “Where did you lose them?” the man asked. “Over there in the grass” the women replied.  “Then why are you searching over here on the sidewalk.” He asked.  Because there’s more light here under the lamppost.” She answered.  An old joke with many variations but indicative of how some of us try to solve our problems.  We create our problems on the inside and try to solve them by looking outside of ourselves.

Don’t sell yourself short.

People generally take you at your own estimation of your own worth.

Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind.  To be happy, rest like a great tree in the width of them all.

Happiness comes from within. If you choose to be happy, no one and no thing can ever take that happiness from you.
