Spiritual Insight A Gift Of Poetry

In this new age of information, poetry has taken on a whole new level of excellence. I started writing poetry when I was twenty-four, which became a significant outlet for me to express my spiritual side of my character. Even through my pain and suffering and through the glorious times, it seemed to help enrich others, as well as myself. By the means of writing my experiences in short poetical form and then sharing my poetry has become truly a remarkable journey. The responses that I have had with people of all ages has been deeply rewarding for me and how it is capable of truly touching a person’s heart as the poem speaks to them or even yet helps them as well.

Writing poetry from the heart then sharing it with others is my goal. A special and close friend of mine said to me “what we create must be shared because there is someone out there that has wished to see or read that special creation”. How glorious it is when someone gets excited when we had became brave enough to share our work with them. I have found we have a need for the elevating beauty of art to uplift and influence the soul.

I prefer to focus on the beauty of reality in my poetry and not to be cynical and dwell on the gloomy aspects of life. I have come to realize that darkness is the absence of light; ignorance is the absence of knowledge. We have a need to express the spiritual inner truths we have come to learn and feel deep within. Enriching experience is where my inspiration comes from.

Follow Yourself

Open your heart Show your art Watch it become a part Of its decoration Of creation. Watch it flow Like the wind blows Through the meadow Be at peace with it Watch it grow Follow forward To your inspiration There is a destination.

By: Ryan Daniels

Poetry is a wonderful exercise for stimulating the brain. Becoming open to new experiences, and a change in previous ways of thinking about your experiences is the key. The fruits that can come from revealing our inner expression can help our spirit to soar and reach such great heights that it can branch to other grand opportunities as we expand our thoughts and become progressive with our writing or any other wonderful form of art for that matter.

I wish for you many enriching experiences and grand opportunities on your journey through life!

The Missing Link Between Dreaming And Experience

What did Napoleon Hill say? “Whatever the mind of Man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” A biblical verse inspires young men to dream dreams and old men to see visions for almost 2000 years. Even a Buddhist saying is quoted, “If you want to know your past life, look into your present condition; if you want to know your future life, look at your present actions.” So what happened to your dream lately? If it’s STILL a dream, something is amiss, right? The motivational gurus push you to slap high-fives and shout, “AWESOME!” and walk on broken glass and fire. You go back home on an emotional high and you still wouldn’t care what they did to your 6-inches-between-the-ears as long as the ‘drug’ doesn’t wear off. You simply need a logical high to balance out. Specifically, you need an understanding of how taking little, insignificant-looking daily actions today can manifest your dream tomorrow. The honest folks caution you by saying Internet Marketing is just like any other business, and nothing is easy. We dare say it becomes much easier if you understand what this missing link is. The truth is, your perception of Internet Marketing as a business can be broken down into bits and bytes from all that you see on your 15.4 or 17-inch screen. Do you know how easy it is for you to imitate Yahoo! as closely as possible if you so wishes? Why, Yahoo! has this section here and that section there, and an opt-in box here and an opt-in box there. Get your layout ready and fill the spaces with content, and keep on filling it and expand your web pages according to the size of your ambition. You can never fall short when you feel you are doing your absolute professional best, but for lack of confidence in ideas or proven experience, there are many talented people out there who don’t know how to start something right online. And even when they finally found all the pieces for a complete jigsaw puzzle (that means they acquired ‘everything’), they still weren’t sure because of this funny missing link. “So Yahoo! has this box that somehow links to this section,” you ponder. “But what is that huge infrastructure that makes it work?” But we thought there’s nothing huge about Yahoo! except for its servers. The command link between 2 modules is only a few lines of programming is it? You are a very young child observing from the top of the stairs a party put on by your parents for their friends. You are aware of all the events taking place in the party, but you have little means to understand them. You know a little bit of language, so you can understand snippets of conversation. You certainly understand facial expression, so you can recognize fragmentary aspects of the interpersonal interaction. But you know nothing of sexual flirtation, political contention, or the effects of alcohol, so most of what you see makes no sense whatever. After several hours of seeing this spectacle, you return to your room and try to explain to your twin sibling what happened. Would you not explain the party in the only terms you had a grip on: the facial expressions? Would you not fill in the logical gaps in your representation with the meager stock of human behaviors you understood? A sexual flirtation becomes “he likes her”; a political argument becomes “he doesn’t like him”, possibly because “he’s been bad”. Drunkenness is interpreted as dizziness or silliness. For lack of adult experience, you are amused by what you just saw as the party plays out like a dream. But will your preoccupation with the party today determines the path you will take tomorrow? Quite likely, you look forward to playtime at school, and then by next week, you don’t even remember there was a party. Corey Rudl and Bill Gates, for all their experiences, cannot touch your dream. Your dream in online business is what people will remember and support you for as you try to complete it. Your preoccupation with this dream is the energy devoted NOW to bring about the harvest at the end of the day. Experience counts for nothing except as reference to past lessons. That implies that ‘experience’ is just a useful tool. You just cannot afford to wait for time to pass you by in order to gain experience…whatever that means, nor perfect timing. Your action starts now. When? NOW. If there are any missing links that you don’t understand for lack of experience, OBSERVE the TRUTH behind the chicken nature of these links, then imitate it.

Improve Your Self Esteem With These 2 Self Esteem Building Activity

If you happen to be among the unfortunate few who suffers from low self-esteem or know someone who does, you might be interested to try out these 2 self esteem building activities that can help to gain back your self confidence and positive attitude.

Self Esteem Building Activity #1

Let us kick off this self esteem building activity with your self. Look into the mirror and point the unique features that you possess. Look at your eyes, your nose, your lips, your body frame and every part of your body. Do you like what you see? Do you love what you have?

How many times have we seen people suffering from depression and low self esteem throwing objects at the mirrors because they hate their own reflection? Many times I am sure.

Thus, the first self esteem building activity that you should indulge in is improving how you look and start to love every unique trait that you own. In this phase you have to make sure that you like what you see in the mirror and looking physically good is an important factor at this point of time.

Take a trip to the beauty parlor or the gym if you must. Get a new hairdo or a manicure. Go for an eyebrow trimming session. Buy the latest outfit in the fashion scene. Whatever it is, start beautifying yourselves. It is mandatory that you like and love your own reflection in the mirror because such fondness is an amazing start to make yourself feel better.

Once that is settled, look into the mirror every morning and say to yourself ?I love myself? not because you are narcissistic but because you simply love the uniqueness that you can offer to the world.

Self Esteem Building Activity #2

Go out and hang out with close friends every week. Set a definite date to surround yourself with friends who are supportive and celebrate the ?high points? of the week. Think of the session as a time where you give one another words of encouragement and heaps of praises.

Why every week? It is pleasant to always have something to look forward to every week. This self esteem building activity will enable you to share a unique bond with your friends and together you will all grow up delightfully. Be careful not to over praise each other so make sure that you only give sincere and timely praises to each other.

Those are just two self-esteem building activities that you can practice to build your self esteem or to finally build a high self esteem. There are other ways but one individual practice and another group exercise should encourage you to get at least get started and then just keep on doing it until it becomes habit. You never know, when you are so good at it then you can begin to walk the talk and inspire others to do the same.
