The cost of envy

Share this:

The cost of envy  We cannot have what we envy. Envy is scarcity consciousness. Envy is saying, “that is for other people but not for me.” Instead we ought to be excited for others, celebrate their wins and successes, be happy for them, be grateful that such good exists in our world. Thinking that way […]

Life or death, curses or blessings

Share this:

Life or death, curses or blessings  Probably the simplest way to look at it is ~ we are either pronouncing words of life over ourselves or words of death. We are either cursing ourselves or blessing ourselves. This includes what we say out loud, what we think, and what the little voices in our heads […]

The wrong to-do list

Share this:

The wrong to-do list  The temptation is to fill our schedules with action items that are in our comfort zone. This gives us a mock sense of accomplishment because we can point to all that we got done. But ultimately, this doesn’t support us in becoming the person we want to be or in achieving […]

Drastic reduction in suffering

Share this:

Drastic reduction in suffering  We are so quick to react and judge our immediate circumstances as good or bad. But, in order to really know what anything means, we would need to be able to see the future. When we judge the circumstances as bad, we get to suffer. A great antidote to this is […]

A bad idea

Share this:

A bad idea  Sales training teaches us that if we make a prospect feel stupid, they probably are not going to buy from us. We can do this by using jargon, big words, acronyms, by making things unnecessarily complicated, by acting superior . . . That seems like a good strategy to apply everywhere in […]

You and Mt. Evans

Share this:

You and Mt. Evans  If I got down on my knees and aimed my camera up at you, I could make you look taller than the Rocky Mountains in the background. However, if I thought that you were taller than the mountains then I would be seriously deluded. That’s a pretty good metaphor for what […]

Discount or Celebrate

Share this:

Discount or Celebrate  I biked the Bluffs Regional Park Trail this morning. (This is part of my new plan to devote more time and effort to my physical fitness. The climb up the bluff is a decent workout. It is fairly steep without any breaks.) I made it to the top just fine but had […]

A strange sleep

Share this:

A strange sleep  I had a strange night last night. I woke up at least 6 times with the thought “Love more, judge less” on my mind. I would wake up, think that thought, then think “that makes a lot of sense”, and then fall back asleep. That thought does make a lot of sense. […]

Darkness flashlight

Share this:

Darkness flashlight  Imagine a darkness flashlight that projects more darkness rather than light. The uses for this would be rather limited and most of the time it would just make things worse. However, this is what people do so often. We have the mistaken notion that sympathy, empathy, and compassion somehow require us to feel […]

Words and focus

Share this:

Words and focus  Our words determine our focus and what we focus on is what we get – whether it is what we do want or what we do not want. Are we getting out of debt or creating wealth? Are we fixing problems or working on improvement projects? Are we losing weight or getting […]
