THOUGHT OF THE DAY: The world might seem unkind...but that's because everybody is jaded... Disillusioned, scared, tired to try... The only way to make the world kinder, is to make our BEST efforts to forgive and forget. Forget doesn't mean to erase from our memories, but stop going back to is as if the reference to it is an excuse and our refuge - escape from accepting our own responsibilities. Forgiveness (of others, of ourselves) is not effortless. But if we don't make efforts, and nobody does, that's the world we will keep living in - unkind, unwise, cruel, violent, ignorant, gossipy. So, can we forgive and forget, as a result of our BEST EFFORTS? Today... Now... Inhale, excel, let it go.... :-)
That's my thoughts for this morning, inspired by some observed energies in social (often antihuman) media...
Much Love to you, my friends...

Some times our passions have the lives of their own... They are born on their own accord, and they leave us unexpectedly... I love when they arise and I accept when they subside.... because I know there will be soon the next one, that will lead us to a very different experience... So, if today for one reason or another, you feel uninspired - be patient, my friend... it will come...some time, even if you don't "build it", it will come anyways... Just watch... and I mean it... WATCH...   
Much love....  good night...

Beauty is whatever gives joy.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay

So, how can you doubt whether you are beautiful if you mastered the art of accessing the joy within you?

I was often asked for a structured explanation of my intuitive transformational processes, as many of you shared you would like to learn about correlation between our physical and emotional metrics and their correlation with business behaviors and decision making process.
Please book your complimentary assessment consultation with me: http://www.physioemodynamics.com/make-an-appointment-3/.
I have designed PhysioEmoMentrics and will be happy to test you and show you the magic of some body analytics for your business. Amazing stuff! :-)

Thoughts of the day: Don't praise your kids for what they are accomplishing, praise them for their moods. 
If we can't teach our kids happiness, who will?
the society will teach them 100s of ways and reasons to be unhappy. Parents job is not to add to it, but counter the insanity...

As new Year approaches there is always a contemplation about fundamental things... And the most fundamental "thing" of all is love...  Word "love" has a very different meaning to everybody... 
In my 40-ish years on this planet (unless I simply cannot remember all my other lives and landings here) I've learned that loving someone means 2 things: 
1) decision to commit to loving someone, and 
2) skills to love.

Most often people miss one or both...

That's why we often can hear "we fall out of love". Being in love has nothing to do with decision to love, it's a biological / chemical reaction to one's physical body (visual forms, kinestetic effect),  and the effect of one's presence on the collapse of our Ego ... That's why we call the union of two people "union". Each separate Ego collapse for a moment getting lost in the pleasure of the physical interaction and the sense of an ultimate union... But then it reappears and what is needed is...
1) decision to commit to loving someone, and 
2) skills to love.
And falling out of love is making a decision to withdraw our commitment to love someone... And withdrawing our decision to apply skills to love - which is skill to consciously and volunterely to put your loved one before you - before your preferences, desires, even needs... skill to disappear, skill to sacrifice the part of you that always wants something for yourself... that treats another as a mean to your end...

Men in my life wanted many things from me - attention, companionship, intellectual stimulation, satisfaction of their erotic fantasies, domination of their Ego, submission to it, entertainment, care, admiration, great food, great sex etc. etc. etc... They called it all love...

So many men have told me they loved me, so few really did...

Do You love your woman (or man)?
Do you truly offer to them your
1) decision to commit to loving someone, despite your conditions, and 
2) skills to love, without conditions.

Do You Love?

Last night we watched "Paperboy". It was a well done movie (disturbing, dark and grotesque at the same time) that left me feel depressed. The I thought...   What is a difference between an average well done film vs great film. I always felt - the role of art is to transform. Not just steer emotions or entertain, but TRANSFORM... The the question, of  course, what transformation are we looking for? My inner answer - anything but feeling down, depressed and hopeless (there is enough of it in "real" life). I feel that if that's the outcome of an art piece, then it's just an "artist's" self healing process that has to be left home. Should we as artists carry any sense of responsibility for our message? And no, by no means I point to "happy endings", that's not needed. The form, the structure - none matters. But the intention and the mastery with which it's executed - does...   And of course, that's just my opinion...

Diwali celebration... The festival of lights... 
One of the biggest festival of Hindu culture, celebrated with great enthusiasm in India, and every year we have a glimpse of it here in Silicon valley. 
On this auspicious day, people light up diyas and candles all around their house. They perform Laxmi Puja in the evening and seek divine blessings of Goddess of Wealth. The festival of Diwali is never complete without exchange of gifts.
May the lightness of your heart be the gift you share today with others...
