Everything is perfect! Everything can be improved!!

My friends know that I often say, "Everything is perfect! Everything can be improved!!"

This is the essence of "Wisdom & Compassion" the twin qualities that clarify the mind and nourish the heart.

When someone asks us "What do you really want?", a great answer is "What I really want is what I have already!"

This is contentment and gratitude. "Everything is perfect!" This is the secret of profound peace.

However being content does not preclude having a sense of clear purpose in our lives. We can enjoy the present journey while at the same time having a sense of direction/destination.

So the other aspect of a great answer to the above question would be "What I really want is what I already have. And it's always evolving, getting even better. This is where I see myself headed..."

This is clarity of purpose. "Everything can be improved!!" It is the secret of astonishing success, accomplishment and contribution.

Focusing on half the equation is what has created the artificial divide between spiritual and worldly pursuits. Perhaps true happiness and fulfillment lie in harmonizing and synthesizing the two. There is really no conflict...

"Everything is perfect! Everything can be improved!!"

Absolute Love

If we dedicate our life to love, we will be happy.
To be happy, love must mean more to us than anything.
Absolute love is absolute happiness.
Sometimes we seek happiness by changing the outer world.
But the outer world is just an effect.
We cannot change effects...unless we work with the cause.
The cause is the observer, the mind...without mind, there is no world.
If we don't mind, it doesn't matter...therefore mind rules over matter.
Changing our thoughts...changing our feelings...breathing in love...
"May I be happy!"
Breathing out love...
"May all beings be happy!"
Being Love.

and we enjoy happiness.
and we enjoy peace.
and we enjoy abundance.
and we enjoy everything.

Place love above everything.
Start with one minute a day.
Start with one percent of your responses.

Its infectious!

Three Essentials for a Happy & Meaningful Life

1) Accept your feelings. It's okay to feel this way. If it wasn't, the universe wouldn't allow it! Smile and let go.

2) Know your purpose What makes you come alive? What do you love doing so much that you could do it for free? Suppose it were possible...what is your most impossible dream?

3)Everyday, take action steps towards your purpose. Start where you are and with what you've got. Believe in yourself, in your purpose and take joyous, inspired actions. Start with baby steps. The baby will grow naturally.

Living Intentionally

So many of us dream our way through the day, through the night, through life.

What if, just for one day, we try living intentionally?

It is true that we perhaps cannot control every detail of our day.

However it is equally true that we can choose how we respond to every detail.

We can start the day with a sense of purpose and focus. Knowing exactly what are the two or three things which will ensure that we have really made the most of this gift from the universe.

It really helps to spend five full minutes visualizing and actually feeling ourselves living on purpose, in balance and out of love.

Then before every distinct activity of the day, like meeting someone or starting some activity...check in..."Why am I doing this?"..."What is the best possible outcome"..."How do I want to feel as I do this?"...spend one full minute seeing and feeling this vividly before beginning.

And then ending the day with a five minute review of all the successes...offering gratitude and appreciation. Using our vivid imagination to see ourself being in perfect harmony in the areas where we felt disconnected from intention.

All in all...just 15 minutes a day...for an intentional life.

Have a beautiful day.

How to change your life in one minute

Lie down in bed.

Close your eyes.

Breathe fully.


Place both your hands on your heart.

Imagine you have the warm loving attention of purest Universal Goodness, Beauty and Truth.

Feel the presence.

Now say three times from your heart...

"I give you my life."


Keep lying in bed.

And just feel.

Just feel.

That's it.

Your life will never be the same.

Be Happy.

May it be so!
And so it is!
