Evolution Made Easier

Zippy's tips & picks for a happier, healthier YOU!


Be a camera, kitty transformation, be kind, jumping to conclusions, soup & a movie, and some Abe




# 1 – I like this one, but I would change the “develop from the negatives” to where it would say “develop to where you no longer see things as negatives” :-)…..


# 2 – A wonderful example of what’s possible when love, care and compassion take over. You animal lovers are going to be amazed at the final picture….



# 3 – Solves the dilemma….


# 4 – A sweet video to remind us not to jump to conclusions that will make you want to hug your refrigerator :-)….


# 5 – Get an easy, tasty recipe for green energy soup and details about a free viewing of Overfed & Undernourished in my latest post at Self-help Health…



# 6 – And some Abe to end on….

If all you did was just look for things to appreciate you would live a joyous, spectacular life. If there was nothing else that you ever came to understand other than just look for things to appreciate, it’s the only tool you would ever need to predominantly hook you up with who you really are. That’s all you’d need.

How Medicinal Plants Can Transform Your Life’s Journey

Did you know that plants — yes, plants — hold the key to rebuilding your immunity, detoxifying and optimizing the function of your organs and tissues, mitigating the effects of aging and awakening your spirituality?

This fascinating and powerful subject is the passion of Floracopeia founder David Crow, who is brilliant on this subject and possesses in-depth wisdom about plants as agents for the advancement of consciousness.

During this free virtual event on Wed., June 24th, you’ll discover:

•    How rejuvenation and detoxification therapies can support your life’s journey, particularly in addressing the effects of aging.
•    Herbs with special powers that can support meditation practice and improve memory and cognitive functions.

For more than 30 years, David has pioneered a path for harnessing the power of plants to navigate the many challenges of life. He unifies wisdom from many streams of healing practices into a coherent understanding that will show you how to relate more deeply with the botanical world for rejuvenation, awakening and health. You can find out more and sign up here.

Mindfulness, a push, open mind, thinking cap/cat, 432 hz, and play/work




# 1 – A nugget from Rob Brezsny’s newsletter….

“Feelings, whether of compassion or irritation, should be welcomed,
recognized, and treated on an absolutely equal basis; because both are

“The tangerine I am eating is me. The mustard greens I am planting are
me. I plant with all my heart and mind. I clean this teapot with the kind of
attention I would have were I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath.

“Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In
mindfulness, compassion, irritation, mustard green plant, and teapot are
all sacred.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh, “The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the
Practice of Meditation”


# 2 – Sometimes we just need a push or be willing to give someone else a push….



# 3 – Ah yes, the question keeps the flow going and the door open to all sorts of possibilities; thinking you have the answer shuts things down…..

“I find that a lot of people are more invested in position-taking than they
are in the inquiry. Generally speaking, I am in the inquiry. I live in the
question. People have so many positions, and usually the evidence is not
strong enough for them really to be so confident in those conclusions.
There are just a lot of things that are not certain.”

– Jerry Brown, quoted in “The Atlantic”


# 4- HA! Yes, things are always clearer (and cuter) when I have my thinkin’ cap/cat on. :-)


# 5 – This reminds me of a Self-help Health post I did on solfeggio tones



# 6 – Great image and text…..

“This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” – Alan W. Watts

Deepak’s affirmations, listen, Guest House, relax, relationship, and Abraham




# 1 – A day-long, hourly affirmation routine from Deepak Chopra….



# 2 – Would you rather be right than happy?


# 3 – I really liked this and how it sort of takes away the stigma attached to “bad” emotions, experiences, etc. and helps us realize it’s all “good”….


This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

— Jelaluddin Rumi,
translation by Coleman Barks


# 4 – Ahhhh, just relax into it….


# 5 – This is good to keep in mind, and Nature seems to know what It’s doing by surrendering to “what is.” Maybe the path to achieving your goals was never intended to be a straight line?

Every Path in Nature is a Winding Path 
Only man-made ideas are forced, pushed, pressed into the “right” way to do things. Nature finds her undeniable certainty expressing in whatever way is appropriate in the moment – without prediction, without rigidity, and most importantly with curving, flowing Grace.
Next time you walk in the woods, notice the natural pathways everywhere, ever beckoning your surrender to What Is.
# 6 – And from Abraham…..

There is no relationship of greater importance to achieve than the relationship between you, in your physical body, right here and now, and the Soul/Source/God from which you have come. If you tend to that relationship, first and foremost, you will then, and only then, have the stable footing to proceed into other relationships. Your relationship with your own body; your relationship with money; your relationship with your parents, children, grandchildren, the people you work with, your government, your world . . . will all fall swiftly and easily into alignment once you tend to this fundamental, primary relationship first. –-Abraham

Success, love glasses, vision, dream, masterpiece, and Enneagram Summit, Soul Speak and more



# 1 – A great definition of success….

“The criteria for success: you are free, you live in the present moment,
you are useful to the people around you, and you feel love for all
humanity.”- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

And this might be another perspective on success….

Love, truth and enlightenment.
The door, the key, and the inevitable.

In case you were wondering.

~The Universe
©Mike Dooley ~ TUT.com


# 2 – Yes, let’s all put them on!

# 3 – This feels like a “visioning blessing” to me….

“May a good vision catch me
May a benevolent vision take hold of me, and move me
May a deep and full vision come over me, and burst open around me
May a luminous vision inform me, enfold me.
May I awaken into the story that surrounds,
May I awaken into the beautiful story.
May the wondrous story find me;
May the wildness that makes beauty arise between two lovers
arise beautifully between my body and the body of this land,
between my flesh and the flesh of this earth,
here and now,
on this day,
May I taste something sacred.”

—David Abram (Writer/Activist/Ecologist),


# 4 – And while we’re on the subject of visioning, here’s a good reminder from Dr. Sue Morter…..

Permission to Dream
Sometimes we not only aren’t living as freely as we could, we are not even really dreaming the dream of what it would be like if we were. Perhaps we haven’t actually, deeply, and intimately given ourselves permission to “Dream the Dream” from the inside out.
Take two minutes and change your rules.

Happiness, upset, expectations, good intentions, Inner Riches event and Abe




# 1 – 


# 2 – Short and to the point from Dr. Sue Morter….

Upset Lately?

What are you trying to control?

Every time we are upset, there is something that we are attempting to control, and chances are pretty good that it isn’t working out so well for us. Never does. Not in the long run. What would happen if you just let go of the outcome?


# 3 – HA! This one fits pretty well with Tip # 2……

Did you ever think that something is labeled a “failure” only because it doesn’t match the expectation of what was wanted/”supposed” to happen?


# 4 – An interesting article about the power of consciousness and intention…..



# 5 – These two events sound great and both are free!…..

The first is a 9-day Inner Riches Meditation Experience by spiritual explorer and Inc. 500 entrepreneur Amish Shah and his wife, certified yoga instructor Dr. Puja Shah.

Amish and Puja have spent two decades studying mind science, ancient consciousness-expanding practices, and dormant human abilities. And they’ve applied their findings by helping over 70,000 people through Project:Yourself – a global human potential movement.

This couple is a world-class authority on the subject of holistic success. And in this acclaimed meditation experience, they fuse science and spirit in a fascinating way to help you overcome your inner blocks. Over 9 days, you’ll get one immersive guided meditation session per day – and one mind-body-spirit tool or exercise you can use for an instant boost of perspective, creativity and intuition.

The experience begins Friday May 22nd (today!) and is Amish and Puja’s gift to you. It takes just a few minutes a day to do – and will impact your inner and outer reality.

You can find out more and sign up here.

This second event has already started, but replays are available for 72 hrs, so you still may be able to catch some of it…..

As a participant you get:
  • 1 email a day, featuring 2 fantastic experts and their 30 minute interview
  • Valuable free gifts from every expert
  • Amazing stories, tips and tools you can be doing RIGHT NOW and EVERY DAY for your family’s optimum health and wellness
  • Steps and professional advice you can follow on a daily basis to have the health and wellness for your family you have always wanted!

# 6 – Very concise…..

When you say “Yes” to something, you include something you do want in your experience. When you say “No” to something, you include something you don’t want in your experience.–Abraham

Mother Nature, perception, planning, eating organic, Louis CK, and get happy


No one wows me like Mother Nature!

If you like this, go here for more.




# 1 – Love this image and message….


# 2 – In a seemingly convoluted way I “just happened” to come across this excerpt from ACIM that reminds me of living in the now and leading w/ my heart/inner guidance and not my head…..

“The mind engaged in planning for itself is occupied in setting up
control of future happenings. It does not think that it will be provided
for, unless it makes its own provisions. Time becomes a future
emphasis, to be controlled by learning and experience obtained
from past events and previous beliefs. It overlooks the present, for
it rests on the idea the past has taught enough to let the mind direct
its future course.

The mind that plans is thus refusing to allow for change. What it has
learned before becomes the basis for its future goals. Its past
experience directs its choice of what will happen. And it does not see
that here and now is everything it needs to guarantee a future quite
unlike the past, without a continuity of any old ideas and sick beliefs.
Anticipation plays no part at all, for present confidence directs the way.”


# 3 – Think it’s not worth it to eat organic? Check out my latest posts at Self-help Health to make you rethink things, plus get a variety of a self-help health tips…..




# 4- Oh, you gotta hand it to Louis CK for being able to touch on very deep matters in a funny, insightful, entertaining way (warning: contains some “strong” language)…..


# 5 – And I may have shared this one before, but it’s worth repeating….

Everything that I think that I need to do is all only in order to propel me to some place that when I get there, I think I will be happier. So, everything that I am doing, no matter what it is, all of my lists of rights and wrongs… are all about me getting to a manifestation that I believe I will then be happier… So, why don’t I take a short cut and just go get happy? –Abraham
