The Treasures Within You

What if you knew for sure that there was a treasure of great worth residing deep within you? What if you were certain that this treasure contained tremendous wisdom, strength, creativity and healing? What if you knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that an endless wellspring of joy and love was the reward for your efforts to get to know yourself deeply? Everything we have learned about human inner nature for hundreds of years tells us that all of this is true. So why do so few value or even make the inner journey? Because on the way to the "holy grail" of your true, amazing nature you must pass the protector/beasts of anger and fear and embrace the lost and wounded children of your soul. Because this inner road to everything you've ever wanted can be so daunting and confusing, I wrote the book, Serai: Bringing The Children Home to provide a metaphorical road map for your journey.

Create Your Day Your Way

You are so much more powerful than you know. One of the greatest aspects of your power is in your ability to choose. When you get up in the morning, you get to choose the kind of day you're going to have. Try a gentle beginning, with silence or soothing sounds, pleasing beverages, and natural light. Sit comfortably facing beauty, and create a positive feeling with positive, inspirational reading. Then take a moment to practice the "Art of Appreciation," and write about what you appreciate about yourself, your loved ones and your world. From your "good feeling place," picture yourself having the kind of day you want. Imagine yourself having fun while being sharp, focused and energetic in all that you do. If you have the time and inclination, meditate for a few minutes to connect with your authentic spiritual nature, then move into your day with joyful anticipation. Learn more about meditation here, and to learn more about visualization take a look at this video.

  Care For Your Soul

One of my favorite books is Thomas Moore's Care of the Soul. He makes the point that he is definitely talking about care of the soul, not cure of the soul. With that in mind, consider for a moment that you're not broken or flawed, therefore not in the need of fixing. See yourself with the eyes of loving compassion, and imagine that you are caring deeply for your own soul. This might mean focusing on beauty (it's all around you, by the way), and seeking to create pleasant experiences for yourself. It might mean reading a whole book of poetry, writing a poem or hosting a poetry reading with friends. Your care of the soul might be attending a symphony or going to a bluegrass festival, or learning to play a musical instrument. Come up with a list of your own soul caring activities, and put them on your schedule.


Finding Goodfinding Videos 

A subscriber recently suggested we provide a link to this fun, inspiring, entertaining, heart-warming video, so here it is! As you watch, you will catch a glimpse of the human spirit that unites all of us as members of the human race. Watch Matt and the other dancers from around the world moving to the music, just for the fun of it. Here's another feel-good video, that will definitely bring a smile to your heart and a laugh to your lips! Perhaps this baby's joy will give you a glimpse of who you are in the depths of your being. Consider looking for ways to laugh, smile and just plain feel good every day throughout the day. It will make you smarter, healthier, kinder and more compassionate. Please send links to any other feel-good videos you are aware of, and you may see them included in future editions of Goodfinding! While we're on the subject of videos, I wanted to mention that I'll be adding a video page to Goodfinding.com. Meanwhile, here's a page that has a couple of great videos about one of my favorite companies--(see the paragraph below).

Your Very Own Business

Do you have a passion, idea or dream that you would love to develop into a business? That has never been easier or more attainable than it is today. I would not have made that last statement about "easier and attainable" if I had not discovered SiteSell.com. Here are some very cool videos that show how other folks like you and me feel about SBI! This amazing business provides you with everything you need to create your own successful Internet business for less than $30 a month! That is what you get with SiteBuildIt! which is the program where you get to do a lot of the designing yourself with SBI's amazing resources at your fingertips. And, if you want them to build the basics for you, check out SiteSellServices, a program in which successful Internet business owners design and create your business for you. They even have a program for work at home moms! I happen to believe that financial freedom is for many people a key to creative freedom and the personal fulfillment of their spiritual purpose. Check out the CD program, "Financial Health, Emotional Wealth."
