More Good News All of the Time! 

It seems every time I turn around, someone else has joined the movement toward good, positive and encouraging news. Some of my recent finds are AndNowForTheGoodNews.com, GoodNewsNow.com, GoodNewsNetwork.org, PositiveNews.net and PositiveNewsUS.org. Do your own Internet search for good news or positive news, and see what you find. What you pay attention to grows. Pay attention to the good things within and around you, and you will get more and more good things. What is your daily mental diet? What kind of information are you consuming, and how does it effect your attitude, your energy level and your good, sensitive heart?


  What Is Your Theory? 

Everybody has a theory about life, people and the future. The pessimist believes bad things are going to happen and looks for evidence to support her/his theory. The optimist believes good things are going to happen and looks for evidence to support her/his theory. And guess what? They both find evidence to support their theory! Everybody wants to be right--that's human nature. What if you had the theory that every day an increasing number of brilliant people are doing amazing things to make this planet a safer, better and more enjoyable place to live for all of us? The more you believe this, the more you will look for evidence to support it. And you will find it. Just check out the links to your right, right now! Become a Goodfinder, and the good will find you!


 The Time of Your Life 

Think of how we define time in phrases such as, "time flies" and "time stood still." Of course, it's not time that flies or stands still. It is your emotional experience that determines how you perceive time. While it may be true that "time flies when you're having fun," it can also be true that the more you are awake and aware in each moment, the more you can savor every drop of goodness that life can offer. What if every moment had a jewel, a gem of insight, joy or awareness to offer? What if it were possible to live life looking for all of these tasty morsels of goodness? Maybe then you could have "the time of your life" and "all the time in the world."


From Your Inner Child To You 

Serai spoke softly to the small gathering of listeners. "I am both innocent and wise. I am new born, and I am the oldest part of you. I am vulnerable, fragile and powerful beyond the reach of your knowing. Imagine me as a doorway to worlds beyond your life experience yet relevant to all that you are. I represent your beginning as a child in this world. And when you return to me as an adult on your inner journey, I represent the beginning of the final phase of your life. From this moment forward, you will steadily realize your beauty and greatness, and you will grow into more humility than you have known or experienced. I am the key that opens the doorway to your divinely inspired purpose in life."  You have just read an excerpt from my new book, Serai: Bringing the Children Home.

Fans With Cans

Artist, musician and social entrepreneur Julie Woods founded an organization called Fans With Cans, which you can check out at FansWithCans.org. Describing itself as a "food abundance" organization, Fans With Cans is based on the principal that, "Anyone who doesn't believe they can make a difference has never been in bed with a mosquito." By turning every entertainment event, business meeting or social gathering into a "food raising" opportunity, Fans With Cans makes it easy to make a big difference with a little effort. There are many ways to help and get involved, and have fun along the way. Go to FansWithCans.org now to learn more.

A Compliment Is A Comment On You

Do you know anybody who is really good at giving compliments? Are you good at giving compliments? We know from the Institute of HeartMath research that expressing appreciation is good for your heart, so it would follow that giving genuine compliments would be good for you as well. To be authentic, a compliment must come from a full heart, a heart full of love and joy. When you give an authentic, heart-felt compliment, you are commenting on the beauty and grace of your inner world. So practice the art of giving and receiving compliments. Receive them for the sake of the giver, and give them because that's the kind of person you are.

  The Spiritual Warrior Within You

"It is the angel inside that warms our heart, when fear and hatred would make us cold and hard. It is the healthy anger of the angel that brings a welling of love, power and the strength to take courageous action that would otherwise be unthinkable. In the power and strength of courageous action, we see the best of the potent emotional energy of anger.  In the Spanish language, there is a word, "coraje" which carries in its meaning both courage and anger.  When we mix courage, love and wisdom with our anger and channel these energies into constructive or heroic action, we invite angels to align with anger for the cause of justice, truth and goodness." This is an excerpt from my book, Anger Among Angels: Shedding Light on the Darkness of the Human Soul.

 Quotes from Great Goodfinders

"When someone holds a focused thought, he may be altering the very molecular structure of the object of his intention."
--Lynne McTaggart author of "The Intention Experiment"


"Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play."
--Heraclitus

"I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate.  It is my daily mood that makes the weather.  I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous."
--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Realize that this is the perfect moment to change the energy of the world, to step right up and crank your personal volume."
--Mark Morford

 "To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven."

Playwright
