Remember you are not the mistakes that you made.

A man that cannot find enough compassion in his heart to forgive is a fool. We all make mistakes, but the fool continues trying to convince everybody that he is flawless. When you master the art of forgiveness you enter a safe harbour and gain peace of mind. An energy bubble surrounds each one of us. This energy field is charged by your predominant focus at any given moment in time. People can sense when anger, grief or revengeful thoughts are trapped in this energy field. You need to sanitise this invisible energy bubble that accompanies you wherever you go if you want to improve your health or lifestyle. Letting go of the past is a good place to start. The key to a clear energy field is forgiveness. Not only forgiveness of other, but of yourself.

Do not allow your past to hold you at ransom. Forgive yourself unconditionally and get on with the game of life. Even if the mistakes that you made in the past shook the world in its foundations you still need to put them behind you.

Remember you are not the mistakes that you made. You are not your history. Let go of the past or unconditionally accept the current mediocre role or position that you are in. You cannot cross the bridge of life if you continue to keep your one foot on the yesterday’s side of the bridge. If you want to cleanse yourself you will have to forgive yourself unconditionally. You must see past mistakes as stepping-stones. There is nothing you can do about past mistakes and poor choices that you made. Forgive yourself and learn from your mistakes. Be gentle with yourself. Only when you can become your own best friend will you begin to make real progress in life. If you want to forgive a person for what he or she has done to you, you will need to erase his wrongdoings or no real forgiveness can take place.

Will you add something, take something away, build something or break something down today?

.

Will you add something, take something away, build something or break something down today? Our days, weeks, months and years casually slip by while the sands of time silently make their way to bottom of the hourglass of life. What happened to your dreams, aspirations and unbridled enthusiasm my friend? Will today be a deadly repeat of too many yesterdays? You can add love, compassion or a friendly smile to the versatile brew of life today. You can hold someone, set someone free with your forgiveness today. You can listen with an open mind to the stories that everyone secretly wrote in his or her book of life to date. Put away your filters, judgements and perceptions today. Notice the reality reflected in the eyes of those that will enter your space today. You can make a difference and repair, promote or fulfil someone’s dream today. You can open a door, fix a roof, provide a meal or solve a problem for someone today. Get yourself out of the way my dear friend and you will see the world and your fellow travellers on spaceship earth with new vision.

A champion knows that his winter season will pass like so many times before and make way for a brand new summer.

.

.

1. A child reared without clear boundaries has little chance of success. Limits are necessary to give purpose, direction and structure to life. The fool swims in a boundless sea of opportunity and finally drowns because of his failure to latch onto a specific purpose. He tries to own the sea while the wise man selects a single purpose (opportunity/goal) and then pursue it with all his heart. The wise man understands the power of commitment and focused thought and is well rewarded.

2. A defeated person becomes indifferent about his fate. He finally stops feeling ashamed or sorry. He stops resisting and fighting to reclaim his dignity. The wise is very aware that passive behaviour could make him act like a dog with a broken spirit. Our parks are filled with defeated individuals that tragically accepted their fate in life.

3. A desperate or worried person displays the tendency to cling to anything or anyone that displays even slight compassion. A true warrior understands that this behaviour will eventually exhaust the person that he clings to. A champion never makes panic decisions or choices. He lives in the moment and knows that his winter season will pass like so many times before and make way for a brand new summer.

4. A few moments of indiscretion could become a burden that you might haunt you for the rest of your life. The need for instant gratification is usually at the root of most of our less spectacular choices. Any choice that we make can be compared to the pull of a trigger on a gun. Once the bullet leaves the barrel it cannot be recalled.

5. A good friend is like a good investment. To make good longterm friends be a friend. Friends become a shield in troubled times. Friendship is not a one-sided deal. There are people that claim that they are your friends, but they are often just stranger exploiting you. Several of the friends you make during your lifetime will stick a knife in your back the first time your friendship is really tested.

6. A grievance poisons your mind and chains you to the past. It leaves you bitter and twisted. Everyday of your life you chose between grievances and freedom. You must make up your mind if you want “pain” or “joy” or the “old” or the “new”. When you choose to go for freedom then learning the art of letting go becomes a top priority. When you have mastered the art of letting go of your history you begin to predominantly live in the now.

7. A man that cannot find enough compassion in his heart to forgive is a fool. We all make mistakes, but the fool continues trying to convince everybody that he is flawless. When you master the art of forgiveness you enter a safe harbour and gain peace of mind.

8. A man that is mature, fair and respectable is worth more than precious jewellery. Everybody respects maturity and predictability. Wisdom only comes to those that are slow to anger and careful in their judgement.

9. A man that lacks self-esteem needs titles and certificates to justify his position in life. A man at peace with who he is does not need the constant blessing or praise of others. Never allow a person’s title or position to intimidate or dominate you. See yourself on equal footing with others. Do not allow a person to intimidate you with his pedigree or current superior vantage point.

10. A man with willpower always has the best chance of coming out on top. The main reason why people fail is not because they do not have the skills and know-how, but because they lack the willpower. A person without willpower and determination always ends up the slave of those that do.

Apply the “time out” rule if you want to master the art of dispute management.

.

birdwisdom

.

Mutual respect developed in relationships ensures sustainability and good quality choices. The key is to create a platform where parties can talk openly, without fear about observations, experiences and feelings. I sometimes find it almost humorous to hear from friends how their partner went crazy, hyperventilated and pulled out clumps of hair from his or her scalp after they share some bad news with him or her. A few dramatic performances by your partner after you share less acceptable news with him or her usually convince you that this open and honest thing should be avoided at all cost. That is one of the main reasons why partners begin to hide stuff from each other. It might be a good idea to set down a few ground rules about this open and honest mode of operation before you agree to take it on board. You must build in an escape clause if your partner begins to show symptoms of a heart attack or start looking for a sharp knife in the kitchen. I am exaggerating, but hope that you will accept that some ground rules must be put in place if one or both of the partners feel that honesty is the best policy. The best rule is to agree that you will bring in a “time out” period when any of the partners move away from a rational and objective communication style. You may find that one partner insist while he or she is foaming at the mouth that you conclude whatever you are busy talking about. My friend, take time out, even if you must dodge a few “flying saucers” on your way to your workshop. No problem, relationship or dispute has ever been solved amicably while one or both of the parties work in “crazy” mode. Showing respect and compassion is impossible while you jump up and down like a clown or make noises like a wounded buffalo. I thus suggest that you set some “playing” rules in this regard and avoid any engagement while upset or angry. Apply the “time out” rule if you want to master the art of dispute management.

How can you appreciate victory if you never tasted defeat?

.

stop-and-think

.

Appreciation is the key to understanding. Only when we learn to appreciate what we have will more value be added to our lives. Gratitude and appreciation are the two most neglected emotions in society today. You can never be happy or achieve peace of mind if you lack these vital components. We are what we feel. What we talk about and the way we cope with life is directly linked to our feelings. We can attempt to fake compassion, joy or gratitude but if it is not linked to our true feelings, it will be visible in our eyes. Our feelings on everything in life drive us to fame and fortune or destruction. Our feelings control our destiny.

A person that lives in a safe, moderate middle of the road manner will never experience true living. How can you appreciate victory if you never tasted defeat? How can you appreciate good food if you never went hungry? Dare to go to the outer perimeters of your comfort zone and discover the true spirit of the pioneer. Flirt with failure and learn what passion is all about.

A wise man counts his blessings everyday. He takes nothing and nobody for granted. He appreciates even the smallest gifts that life favours him with. He appreciates the gift of a beautiful sunset or when a new day is born. He is wise because he never lose his ability to appreciate. Appreciation is the key to understanding. Only when we learn to appreciate what we have will more value be added to our lives.

Gratitude and appreciation are the two most neglected emotions in society today. You can never be happy or achieve piece of mind if you lack these vital components. Continue to believe in yourself even when everything looks bleak or lost. Allow time to pass. The tide will turn. Life has many seasons. It might be winter now, but a warm and wonderful summer is just around the corner. Take stock and appreciate what you have.

During the dark ages, the kings often killed the bearer of bad news. People still today do not appreciate hearing bad news. Do not take it upon yourself to show people on the error of their ways. Your intentions might be pure, but will rarely be appreciated. It is important to remember where you come from if you want to appreciate your current situation.

Most people forget their successes or achievements when they run into problems. They are forever starting over mentally. Learn to appreciate what you have. The man that is never satisfied with his current blessings is driven into high-risk decisions. Pace yourself and measure your worth not with what you lack, but with what you currently have.

A true friend or wonderful partner is often worth more than a million Dollars in the bank. A dedicated spouse or loyal children is often worth more than all the gold in the world. A regular meal is often more important than a fantasy of prosperity. A supportive and dedicated partner is worth more than the thrill of a quick “hit and run” fling.

One way of handling change that is forced on you is to accept a worst-case scenario and then to take any improvement on that as a bonus. Things can only become better once you accepted the worst. You become optimistic if you already accepted death as your potential ultimate outcome. The ultimate warrior accepts that he could die in every battle fought. He thus enjoys and appreciates his victories so much more.

Success is hidden in your heart. Stop looking for it in the wrong places. The same holds true for happiness. Happiness in not when people do as anticipated. It is when you can appreciate what you have until you achieve what you need or dream about. Other people can never make you feel unhappy about anything. You become unhappy when you activate the negative feelings that you feel befitS what happened to you.

The fool expects life to be an ongoing smooth ride. He constantly yearns for a time when his life will be perfect. The wise man accepts that the path of life will always include the bitter and the sweet. He does not tire himself chasing after fantasies of perfection. He makes the best of every given moment. He appreciates life one step at a time.

There is a saying that prophets are often not appreciated in their own land. Do not remain in a territory, a career or a relationship where you are not appreciated. You might be a small fish in a big pond in your own town, but could become a big fish in a small pond when you change your location. You will never again take any person for granted if you want to influence people in a positive manner. Stop looking at friends, family members and even strangers as if they are invisible. Show them that you care and your world will change overnight. Show people that you appreciate even the small things they do for you and they will think you are heaven sent. Feed this neglected emotional zone and become a person that will never be forgotten.

The fool becomes so obsessed with the plight of the less privileged or the needy that they become enslaved by them. Such individuals find it difficult to grasp that they are robbing themselves and their families in an attempt to achieve a “mother Theresa” status in the eyes of the community. If you give to others at your own peril, you are not a saint, but stupid. The takers of life expect you to open up and give your all while they give very little in return.

There are millions of people that parasite on people. They emotionally or financially suck you dry and then abandon you. Give people entry to your heart and mind, but cancel their entry pass when you discover that you are abusing this privilege. Establish what people need if you want to make a fortune. The formula is simple. If you know what a person really desires you can find ways to assist such person to achieve his objectives. If a man urgently wants some water, do not give him bread. If a man wants recognition, do not swear at him.

The formula is quite simple. You will be blessed if you help enough people to achieve their own objectives. Some are blessed with a royal bloodline or status that provides them a head start in life. The less informed attempt to compare his own achievements and status in life to that of the extremely affluent. You may be a spectacular success in your own right, but when you make unfair comparisons, you will end up feeling totally outclassed and like a failure.

The idiot is swept away by the beauty of a woman. Beauty is temporary and can be compared to a one-day flower. Do not let your lust lead you into endless dead-ends. When you discover beauty, compassion and love in one package you are truly blessed. This combination is unfortunately just as rare as diamonds in the street. Many of these so-called beautiful people use their beauty as a tool to gain access to your mind, heart and wallet.

A man that cannot find enough compassion in his heart to forgive is a fool. We all make mistakes, but the fool continues trying to convince everybody that he is flawless. When you master the art of forgiveness you enter a safe harbour and gain peace of mind. Happiness and success is always just one thought away. You should remember when you find it difficult to cope that one thought could change your life. One fresh thought and one new idea can change your life from pain and suffering to success and peace of mind. You are what you think. Your choices that you make on a moment-to-moment basis decide your fate and future. You can never feel or perform better than the ongoing thoughts that you allow to occupy your mind!

Learn to be satisfied with your current position in life until new doors open for you. The less informed never enjoys his journey and constantly postpones his happiness. Obsessive pursuit of meaningless goals is a waste of time, money and energy. Being busy does not mean that you are actually effective or productive. Peace of mind comes to those that know what their goals are, but who enjoys each step of their quest.

Take care of unfinished business as soon as possible. Take care of all your unfinished cycles and gain peace of mind. The fool always has unfinished cycles that haunt and chase him. Peace of mind only comes to those that know how to begin, follow through and conclude things. The fool acts as if there is only one path. Wisdom is to know that all paths ultimately lead nowhere. Something that seems so vital and important today becomes dust in the wind of time.

Real peace of mind is to understand that a path attempted without passion will be difficult to master. Because you understand that all paths lead nowhere you might as well enjoy the journey. The wise man avoids the habit of spending “future earnings” on current impulsive goods. The fool however spends years of “future income” in advance. No peace of mind is possible while you are continuously trying to dig yourself out of a bottomless debt pit.

You will only get peace of mind and begin to really enjoy life when you start living in the “now” and when you allow other people to do the same. Have you ever been with a person that accepts you unconditionally? If you judge people, you are keeping them trapped in the past. How can any person grow and wipe their slate clean if you mentally put him behind mental bars that prevents him from joining you in the “now”?
