Livingry, be a lake, gift giving, gift ideas and discounts, Origins Deep Dive, and Abraham



# 1 – I love every quote of “Bucky’s” I’ve ever come across. What a man….what wisdom, what vision….


# 2 – Hey, why stop with a lake??…..Be an ocean!

An aging master grew tired of his apprentice’s complaints. One morning, he sent him to get some salt. When the apprentice returned, the master told him to mix a handful of salt in a glass of water and then drink it.

“How does it taste?” the master asked.

“Bitter,” said the apprentice.

The master chuckled and then asked the young man to take the same handful of salt and put it in the lake. The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and once the apprentice swirled his handful of salt in the water, the old man said, “Now drink from the lake.”

As the water dripped down the young man’s chin, the master asked, “How does it taste?”

“Fresh,” remarked the apprentice.

“Do you taste the salt?” asked the master.

“No,” said the young man. At this the master sat beside this serious young man, and explained softly,

“The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains exactly the same. However, the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things. Stop being a glass. Become a lake.”


# 3 – With the annual gift-giving season upon us, this seemed like a fitting article to highlight….

Do you attach strings to the gifts you give?

“Oh, how nice – just what I wanted. Thank you so much.” [Oh heck! How awful! What am I going to do with this thing now? It will have to be on display when she comes round or she’ll be hurt and annoyed.]

Have you ever been in this position? It can be very embarrassing, not to mention exasperating. It’s not fun to pretend you like it when really you can’t wait to dump it in the garbage or re-gift it to someone.

Getting the right gift for someone is also a difficult and stressful experience. I never know what to give JoAnn. And she’s no help. “I have all I need,” she says when I ask her what she wants for Christmas. (Last year she got a gift certificate for a spa day. She enjoyed it.)

But what is a gift? When is a gift not really a gift? There are three criteria for it to be a true gift:

1. You really do want to give it.
2. You are pretty sure that the person wants what you have to give.
3. No strings attached!

Read the rest of the post here:



# 4 –  And speaking of gifts, check out my What’s New page on the Evolution Made Easier site for a number of great gift ideas, plus discount codes to use for getting up to 53% off some items! There’s also news about a free event titled Origins Deep Dive, extended access to the Origins move, and other good stuff….



# 5 – Now here’s an example of real gift giving. What a great project….



# 6 – Hmmmm, here’s an interesting one from Abe to contemplate when you think that the world is unfair….

If it is true — and it is — that when I — meaning any point of Consciousness — asks, it is given; then can you not feel the perfection of the selfish ego? Every vantage point gets to ask, and every vantage point is answered. And when everyone is individually choosing and Source is answering, then what could be a more balanced world?—Abraham

Thought garden, letting go of radical self-reliance, Eckhart Tolle, Quantum Leap, Gratitude Challenge, vaccines, free movie, and your story



# 1 – Grow flowers!


# 2 – A great post about letting go of radical self-reliance and watching what can happen…..



# 3 – Acceptance/allowance keeps you from fighting against/resisting something; resistance usually just perpetuates what you don’t want….


# 4 – This invite from Tama Kieves may be something you can’t refuse….

Have you signed up for the Quantum Leap Experience, the FREE call/recording on 12/1/14? Sign up here!Do you ever feel like you’re making progress, but at the pace of an inchworm? Do you know there’s GREATNESS ready to bust out?

I am inviting you to join me in a FREE game-shifting experience.

I’d like to guide you into a leap. This leap isn’t an external one. It’s an internal one. It’s a commitment to yourself and your own right life. This year is almost over. But we still have the power to take it into awesome. Let’s do it. Join me for an evening of intention, remembering your power-house self, letting go of struggle, and shifting into miracles. Join me on 12/1 @ 8:30p.m. EST (or get the recording) for The Quantum Leap Experience. Register here to transform your life.


And here’s something from Adoley Odunton at The Wellness Revolution, although I much prefer it be called The Gratitude Opportunity rather than Challenge :-)….


the gratitudechallenge5.jpg

As the holiday season begins, people are busy making plans for Thanksgiving, booking flights, arranging car trips and buying gifts for their loved ones. In the midst of all the activity, I invite you to go on an inward journey and join me and the members of our Intention Healing Circle in an 8-Day Gratitude Challenge.

This Challenge will help you maintain an Attitude of Gratitude in the face of everything that life deals you – unfair situations and seemingly unending challenges can be difficult at first but when gratitude is practiced consistently it is an amazing source of healing and transformation in our lives. Gratitude is a practice and a choice that we get to make every day.


For eight days we will consciously practice gratitude and actively embody it in thoughts, words and actions.


# 5 – This is pretty much the “Cliff Notes” version of Abraham’s on-going message….

Each and every component that makes up your life experience is drawn to you by the powerful Law of Attraction’s response to the thoughts you think and the story you tell about your life. Your money and financial assets; your body’s state of wellness, clarity, flexibility, size, and shape; your work environment, how you are treated, work satisfaction, and rewards—indeed, the very happiness of your life experience in general—is all happening because of the story that you tell.—Abraham


# 6 – And don’t forget to check out what’s happening at Self-help Health. The latest posts have to do with what you should know about vaccines and flu shots, and a groundbreaking movie you can watch for free until 11/22.

Healing mandala, nature pics, spiritual breakdown, encourage others, all connected, last quarter moon, and Abraham



# 1 –  A healing mandala from Keith Allen Kay at Quantum Fractal Energy Mandala…..



# 2 – da Vinci was ahead of the times in many ways. It’s now being proven by science that we are all inter-connected…..


# 3 – Wow, amazing, inspiring pictures….



# 4 – Three things best-selling author Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat.Pray.Love. says may be signs of a spiritual and emotional breakdown….

1. You’re Bored.

I feel like boredom is the first and quietest signal of spiritual despondency. I don’t just mean that you’re bored with your religious path; I mean that you’re bored with everything—bored with yourself, bored with human beings, bored with your work, bored with life. Some people accept boredom as normal, but I see it as a sign that you have completely lost touch with the real wonder that is exploding all around you in every moment. Because let’s be honest—this world is many things, but it ain’t boring. This world is beautiful, violent, extreme, dangerous, magnificent and mysterious. This world is also filled with millions of varied and incredible life forms, including human beings (the most creative, bizarre, unpredictable species that ever lived). If all that bores you, then your soul has really gone to sleep at the wheel. Start reviving your curiosity, and your spirit will have a chance to wake up again.

Go here for the other two signs: http://www.oprah.com/spirit/Elizabeth-Gilbert-Spiritual-and-Emotional-Meltdown


#5 – I love this one!


# 6 – Today is a potent last quarter moon, with lots of other astrological powerhouses in the mix, PLUS it’s my birthday! :-)

Friday morning’s Last Quarter Moon in Leo is quite powerful, a fitting configuration for the transition into the December cycle that is rapidly approaching, and that will feature another instance of Uranus and Pluto in perfect square alignment, the sixth of seven exact hits this mid-decade. While Uranus and Pluto have been doing their recent dance since June of 2012, the issues that this important aspect symbolizes, on both a personal and a cultural level, and resonating with their conjunction in the volatile1960’s, are getting more intense with the experience of the past few years. The stakes as well are getting higher, as a glance at the headlines shows. In addition to the intensity of their square closing to within two degrees, so that we really feel them, they are each aspected by Mars, Jupiter, the Sun and Moon in this quarter moon configuration, heightening the impact of their dynamic interaction. Because these powerhouse planets in combination stand for radical change in our own best long-term interest, and because they are located in the Cardinal signs of Aries and Capricorn, their impact on this decade – which I am referring to as “the Turbulent Teens” – is monumental. As the next installment of their square alignment draws near, and the month of December looms, we are all called to find within ourselves an appropriate response to the evolutionary quest to which we are summoned…

# 7 – A different perspective on aging….

It’s not about years. It’s not about age. It’s not about youth. It’s about decline. And decline is about alignment, or not. Decline is about, in this moment, which way am I forking? In this moment, which way am I forking? In this moment, which way am I forking? That’s all it’s about.-–Abraham

Mother Nature, be yourself, love because, unconditional love, free alternative health events, and Abraham



#1 – Mother Nature wows me again….

The beautiful Black Bat Flower, Tacca chantrieri, is a species of flowering plant in the yam family.


# 2 – A smile for the day….Hey, how about being yourself AND a pirate? Arrr, matey!


# 3 – I guess this is part of living in the Now….

“Only the human heart can live in present moment awareness. The human mind cannot, because its essential nature is to ponder the past and plan the future. This is why all wise beings encourage us to go beyond the mind into the timeless, boundless transcendence of heart-centered awareness.”
~David Simon


# 4 – 


# 5 – Who, how and why do you love? I received a Note From the Universe (tut.com) recently that was stimulating…..basically says if you think you feel unconditionally loving toward someone, that’s not really true/so unless you can/do actually feel unconditionally loving towards EVERYONE. It seemed to fit nicely with Tip # 4. Here’s the Note….

Zirah, ever stop and realize that it’s impossible to feel unconditional love for any single person, until you can feel it for every single person?

After all, what differentiates them, except conditions?

You so can do this,
The Universe

Love them all, Zirah.


# 6 – A couple of free alternative health events being presented that you or someone you know may be interested in checking out….



# 7 – And you know how I like to end with some Abe :-)….

When you ask, it is given, every single time, no exceptions. You are beloved, blessed Beings who deserve good things—but it takes a self-convincing before you will allow good things.—Abraham

Your kindness, clear communication, Power vs Force, underrated sites, Healing Earth, Healing Self Tele-summit, free health e-book and energy process, and Abraham




# 1 – 


# 2 – For those of you who are not familiar with the writing of David Hawkins, this post by Momentum Mikey (great moniker!) is a good introduction to his Power vs Force,  a book I recommend for it’s ability to make you really think about how you define power and  what you believe it to be. In fact, I even use a quote from the book in the chapter Relationship to Power in my visioning workbook….

On examination, we’ll see that power arises from meaning. It has to do with motive, and it has to do with principle. Power is always associated with that which supports the significance of life itself. It appeals to that part of human nature that we call noble—in contrast to force, which appeals to that which is crass. Power appeals to what uplifts, dignifies, and ennobles. Force must always be justified, whereas power requires no justification. Force is associated with the partial, power with the whole.…Force can bring satisfaction, but only power brings joy.  True power, then, emanates from consciousness itself; what we see is a visible manifestation of the invisible….”—Power vs. Force

It seems to me that what gets labeled as power or powerful in the world these days is usually anything but, if you are going by Hawkins’ definition of power. From my perspective, true power is fueled by Spirit and heart-centered, whereas  force is ego-driven/motivated and fear-based. 

Anyway, check out Mike’s thought-provoking post about the book and see what it stimulates in you:



# 3 – Here’s a great post/resource I found out about when the author BullshitWiki (love these names people come up with!) recently gave EME a follow. It’s a list of underrated websites that I think you’re going to find useful …in categories having to do w/ finances and productivity, education/learning, music, images/videos, social living, news and inspiration…..



# 4 – The good folks at HeartMath are sponsoring an event you might like to check out…..

# 7 – And from Abraham….

Most people have put anything that earns money in the category of the things that I have to do. And that is why the money often comes so hard.

If you are wise enough to follow the trail of good-feeling thoughts by deliberately looking for positive aspects along your way, you will come into vibrational alignment with who-you-really-are and with the things you really want, and once you do that, the Universe must deliver to you a viable means to achieve your desires.—Abraham

Fall colors, octopus, Vangelis, Layman’s Commandments, super hero, and strengthening the immune system


OMG! Need I say more?!



# 1 – And another wow! Mother Nature has such a great imagination. :-)


# 2 – A feast for the senses…..



# 3 – A sweet being shared something recently with me ( thanks Rekha!) called “The Layman’s 10 Commandments. Here’s some of the list….

1. Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “steering wheel” that directs the right path throughout the journey.

2. So why is a car’s WINDSHIELD so large and the Rear View Mirror so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on.

3. Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes a few minutes to burn, but it takes years to write.

4. All things in life are temporary. If they’re going well, enjoy them… they will not last forever. If they’re going wrong, don’t worry… they can’t last long either.

5. A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied, “Yes, losing your vision!”

6. WORRYING does not take away tomorrow’s TROUBLES… it takes away today’s PEACE.


# 4 – Wenda of Health, Wellness and Success has written a stimulating and thought-provoking post about how to be a super hero. I dare you to read it and not be inspired!



# 5 – And check these latest posts at Self-help Health for ways to strengthen your immune system….

Inspiring quotes, freedom sooner, co-operation, your temple, free events, and Abraham




# 1 – An inspiring, thought-provoking, insight-producing post from Paging Mrs Zen featuring 20 quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh…..



# 2 – A short post from Dr. Sue Morter on being freer by being authentic….

Freedom Sooner 

Not only does everything in creation exist inside of you, it is what you’re made of. You are that.

We are supposed to be brilliantly alive and amazingly free. There are ways for freedom to express itself inside of you that you have not yet accessed. We can get to freedom sooner. We do not have to do so many of the things we thought we had to do in order to have the love that we’ve been seeking. Everyone is hiding behind what they think they are supposed to say and do in order to be loved. We are collectively creating this illusion that we’re all trying to live in. It’s kind of crazy! We can live in the truth instead. We can choose loving authenticity.


# 3 -


# 4 – It’s all about co-operation and helping each other….a short 1 minute animation on the subject…..


# 5 – Events to check out…..

en*theos is hosting the Healthy Revolution 2014 event with Experience Life Magazine. Beginning Monday October 20, The Experience Life editorial team will be talking with some leading experts at the forefront of healthy living, tossing around topics like feeding your body, detoxing your home, de-stressing your life, and finding time for it all.


Global Oneness Day is coming up on Oct 24th…

Welcome Text



# 6 – This is a really good one to keep in mind from Abraham….

Make lists of positive aspects. Make lists of things you love—and never complain about anything. And as you use those things that shine bright and make you feel good as your excuse to give your attention and be who-you-are, you will tune to who-you-are, and the whole world will begin to transform before your eyes. It is not your job to transform the world for others—but it is your job to transform it for you. A state of appreciation is pure Connection to Source where there is no perception of lack.—Abraham
