What do they say?
Someone said they are a bit like SUVs
Strong and inspiring a feeling of safety.
Possibly a feeling of confidence.
How do you look at boots when you buy them?
Is it how do they protect me and keep me warm and dry
Or is it how do I look in them?
What impression do they make?
What colors do they go with?
What do they say about me?
They go with my clothes.
They make me look taller
They are a particular brand.
How about buying them because they fit and are purpose suited?
Ah what purpose?
Notice how many considerations are involved in buying one item of footwear.
Notice how many of these considerations are done without conscious thought.
Now notice how many things in our life are done without thought.
If you bring thought to everything you do then you will have less time to worry.
Worrying endlessly about your life past and future that is.
Being focused helps us to stay in the present and so avoid endless worry.

Keeps you running all day long
Tired at the end of the day
Ready to relax
Take it easy
Find it in you to do something nice for someone else.
Just a little more effort that's all
Because it completes the day.
Finishes it on a nice note.
Make someone else's day.

Hold it by your liver
That's under your right armpit, just down a bit.
Hold your left thumb and and first finger of your right hand in a circle
Hold them pressed tightly together.
Ask your friend to try pulling them apart
While out loud you say is this pill or what you are holding good for me?
Do this several times while observing the force needed to pry your fingers apart.
Put the pill down after learning the pressure it needs to pull your fingers apart.
Then ask out loud is my name Fred or Susan or some name that is not yours.
Notice the strength needed to pull your fingers apart is less.
Practice and soon you will see how well it works
Work it does.
Now that's something else for another day.

However at other times no we should make our voice heard.
Explore any of the emerging internet forums, say your thing.
Join one to gain experience.
Learn to voice your views
Learn what you really think about any given subject or issue.
Not just what the papers say.
Not the TV news reader.
Not what others say.
Become clear to yourself.
Move towards knowing yourself.
Grow it's the way to better health.Time to move on.

Or so we say
Try noticing what it was you were thinking just before you spilt or slipped.
Invariably you will find some uncharitable or nasty thought.
This is natures way of helping us to learn that nasty thoughts are not cool.
Learn to control those nasty thoughts.
Nasty thoughts are just that nasty.

1 - Locate and look at your fears
2 - Learn to control your mind.
3 - Open your heart.
Simple to say and so very difficult to do.
Because it is the gateway to peace of mind and any further evolution of consciousness in this life.
The first step is best approached by looking at your childhood and seeing if you can find what traumas and fears lurk from there.
The second is starting to meditate, learning to stop thinking, trying to control the mind.
The third is trusting that it is OK to be open to life and true unconditional love.
To achieve the above would be a mega achievement, so do not feel bad if your progress is modest.
For your encouragement the reason it will change your life is that it brings greater harmony, more balance and increased peace of mind.
So however modest your progress can you think of anything else in this world that can give so much?
Just 3 steps.

When things go well no problem we can all enjoy life.
When things change now there is the challenge.
Often this is caused by lack of resources, money.
Can one live with continual money pressures?
Difficult today where every single thing from water onwards costs money.
If the in-comings are insufficient then yes pressure builds.
Only way to handle this is to share with each other how your relationship is worth more than the problem of money.
It really exposes the strength of the relationship.
What is yours built on?
Can it handle stress over time?
Can it handle money stress?

Unless we change.
Always this way in nature.
New for us to see this head on.
Unless we change we go.
People it is time to look inwards.
Only when we understand that the answers lie inside of each of us.
Can we prevail over the current fear and mindless material greed and violence.
Inside we have answers.
Look to your spirit.
Look to your power.
Find answers inside on a personal level

The principal foe of a secondary nature is what was once called phantasy; that is, the reappearance of thoughts and images due to recollection or memory.
Memory is an important power, but mind in itself is not memory
Mind is restless and wandering in its nature, and must be controlled.
Its wandering disposition is necessary or stagnation would result.
But it can be controlled and fixed upon an object or idea.
Now as we are constantly looking at and hearing of new things, the natural restlessness of the mind becomes prominent when we set about pinning it down.
Then memory of many objects, things, subjects, duties, persons, circumstances, and affairs brings up before it the various pictures and thoughts belonging to them.
After these the mind at once tries to go, and we find ourselves wandering from the point.
It must hence follow that the storing of a multiplicity of useless and surely-recurring thoughts is an obstacle to the acquirement of truth.
And this obstacle is the very one peculiar to our present style of life.

Or so it often seems.
And then something comes along and it's special.
Something took you out of your routine.
Something lifted you up or plunged you down.
Suddenly it's special propelling you into pain or pleasure.
A feeling of being more alive for better or worse.
Nothing prepares us for this.
It just arrives.
Imagine that the next time this happens you did not go so high or fall so far.
Probably a better option given that fifty percent or so of our special experiences are going to be painful.
Learning to be the observer of yourself protects from too savage an experience.
It does mean learning to control your mind though.
So that you can become that observer of what happens to you.
Start learning more about why you feel as you do.
Why you react as you do.
How you can become that observer of yourself..

Too often by trivia.
Want to experience differently?
Arrange to go for a blind walk with a friend guiding you.
Do things without being able to see for a new way of experiencing..
Amazing how fast we now observe three things
One how great it is to be able to see
Two how quickly we pay attention to our other senses and appreciate their importance..

To notice what makes you run.
Why are you here?
Do you have a reason or are you just bumbling along?
Don't know why or what for?
Well if you do not know then how can anyone else?
Some things are for us alone to decide.
Why are you here?
Take time out to understand some things about yourself.
If you do not then you can be sure nature will by bringing you to a stop in your life.
This will take the form of an illness or something else that prevents you ignoring yourself.
Running all the time to avoid yourself..
Don't believe us then look around you.
No one gets through life without this challenge.
So be smart and think about why you are here.
Are you doing what you came into this life to do?

Because in our world it is usually something man says or judges.
Something often at the expense of something else.
Something perceived as important at the time.Unfortunately man is only able to see part of every story.
So let go of what others say.
Act morally and behave with ethical consideration.
Do in life what is truly important to you.
What resonates with you.It is only at the end of our days that we can see whether it was success or not.
