Now is the Time for ChangeWritten by Michelle L. Casto
Planet Earth is ripe for change. Everywhere you look, change is occurring: for individual, families, corporations, communities, states, countries, and ultimately world. The pace of change has increased to keep up with human desire to create more change. You wouldn’t have to look very far in your own life to identify something you would like to change. Now is perfect time to transform yourself physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually or otherwise. As Dr. Richard Gerber has stated, “The discord and unrest occurring upon planet at this time is a higher reflection of emotional and spiritual imbalances that exist in many people throughout world. We must begin to heal dis-ease and distress at level of causes and not just at superficial world of physical effects. In order to accept and work with vibrational healing methods, one must begin to make transition toward personal transformation that is necessary before true physical and spiritual healing can occur.” What you may have noticed is that it is time for a change. What you probably don’t know is how to go about transforming your life. The first thing you need to learn about change, is that in order to change your outer reality, you must transform your inner programming. All change begins with you---on inside---your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about how life works or doesn’t work determine what you will create in your outer world. Gathering information is an important first step in change process, making smart decisions is also key, but listening to your soul’s callings is very best way to call forth change into your life.
Are We Having Fun Yet?Written by Jim M. Allen
Many years ago, while serving in U.S. Air Force, I was lucky enough to work for a commander, Lieutenant Colonel Mike Danielle, who first introduced me to an idea that I have since adopted as one of my primary 'operating principles.'
Simply that first order of business each and every day was to, as he put it, "have fun by God!" One of things LTCOL Danielle understood was, regardless of how seriously we dealt with our jobs as members of military, we would be more effective and moreMORE successful if we were having fun doing them.
It's an idea that sounds good, that is attractive to almost everyone, but that few people actually practice. It's not that they don't want to, mind you. It's just that they forget.
Sometimes having fun requires effort, some forethought, maybe even a little planning. The results can be tremendous, however, as we rejuvenate ourselves, shake-off tension, and remember to laugh at life and to enjoy wonder in little things going on around us.
