“It seems that the problems we have with money are about not having enough money, getting more money, or giving money. But it is not about that. It is about the relationship we have with money. Like with everything in life, we have feelings and beliefs about money. If we avoid those feelings and beliefs, we end up seeing ourselves as victims in a circumstance revolving around money.”

No Guarantees

When you see yourself accomplished, happy, successful is what determines the way you feel right now. We all fall into the trap of thinking about our future happiness without knowing for sure when it will come. Live in our mind's non stop anticipations of the future feels like we're delaying our living to a later date. How can we arrive where we want to be today?

How much is enough?

The inner sense of satisfaction cannot be ever satisfied if it depends on the changing circumstance.When we seek to feel good about ourselves and look to get this feeling from the outside we fall into a trap. The problem with the outside is that it is always changing. So we find ourselves chasing what is always changing, never knowing how to stop because if we stop, what will make us feel good about ourselves? - You don't have to chase your happiness anymore.

Reflections

Everybody thinks to themselves - I know the person that I am, I know myself better than anyone else, you can't tell me something about myself that I don't already know. Well, I'm here to tell you that the majority of people don't know themselves completely. In fact, they spend most of their lives refusing to get to know themselves, and here is why.

What about now?

Just the other day I was watching a video by Jason Silva on Facebook in which he was talking about learning. Jason was talking about two forms of acquiring knowledge from an article he read by a famous philosopher who described the way we learn. The first way we learn is by description and the second way we learn is by acquaintance or experience. That got me thinking about the decisions we make in life regarding what to do with our lives. Young people…

Everything Works

If life is a stream of passing events how come we spend most of our lives looking to reach some event, isn’t that obvious that once we reach it, that event will be washed away by the stream simply because of the nature of the stream, leaving us again in uncertainty. A change in perception must be made in order to change our attitude towards the stream of life. If a stream is a series of events then it must be treated as such. But unfortunately,…

What’s in your way

It also seems that a need is stronger than a want. Whenever I feel that I need something it is usually backed up by a strong argument or a belief. I may want this or that and I may want something strong enough to go for it, but it will never compare to a desire of absolutely needing something. Ask yourself what do I want, the answer could be anything, love, money, peace, etc. Now, compare between two feelings, the first one is wanting what you want and…

The price of Freedom

When was the last time you were Innocent, Vulnerable, Faithful, Courageous, Trusting?

Having vs Owning

When you treat things or circumstance you have in your life as though you own them, eventually, you will take those things for granted. Having the mentality of owning things results in attachment, responsibility, and worry to those things you think you own. Ask yourself what do I think I own? and see how much effort, worry, and┬áresponsibility it takes owning that. It could be your house, car, relationship, job, money. If you ditch the mentality…
