I love change, especially when I am making changes in my own life. Making changes in one’s life is an awesome experience and even more so for the one making the changes. Making changes, I mean really making changes in and with your life gives one the chance to get to know ones self. You can change nothing you don’t understand! We all know that. Change is simple.

In fact, please try so understand. We’ve all have heard or have been there to hear; the answer was right there, it was so simple I overlooked it. or We’ve been in a situation for instance a wire or button is loose on your car or stereo and wont work, you get frustrated and overlook as little a thing as a turning of a button. My point is simplicity, the easiest is most often overlooked.

For most of us considering change in our lives can be frustrating. Face it, we all want to make improvements in our lives. The problem is we turn ourselves off before we get started because; when for the most part, when we consider change we do it in frustrating moments, or because of finances or we have ourselves in a situation. Sometime someone else or others are making decisions for us. Those examples and more are reasons we say and hear often change is scary. When we have no control over changes in our own lives I believe we should be afraid.

When one thinks about what our true possessions are in our life time rather we be young or old, wealthy or poor, and I mean true possessions. Not something you can win or lose at the stock market nor something you loose over time.

We as Human Beings own our lives, we own our thoughts and most importantly we own our Love. Life continues after this physical body. Nothing can touch or stop Life, Love or our thoughts. So to begin change by taking ownership of you. You own your life, your love and your thoughts. They’re yours!

On the path to change knowing ones self and I mean truly knowing ones self is not a teaching but a technic. To know one’s self in its self is the first seeds of change. When one sows the seeds of happiness in the garden of love all things become possible.

I ask myself two questions, “am I happy and what do I need to do for my or me and my families security(needs) in life. Happiness is a driving force. happiness flows from the One and the One is love. All things arose from the seed of love.

As you can see change is easy. Know yourself

Continuation on Change

Now that the news; Moving forward, time for change has come. The process and preparation. Preparing for a leap in change in one’s life and at present my life. The one thing in my life right now that remains steady is discipline and focus. Anyone who’s made a huge change in their life knows that every decision that one makes is important. Given that we do live in a cause and effect world one must be careful of every decision and action. Actions follow decision. Scientifically speaking;

In a cause and effect world, if we know the causes we can predict the effects.
So, “what is chance for the ignorant is not chance for the scientist. Chance is
only the measure of our ignorance”.

I thought that equation was a good example to my point in regards to change and decision-making. If one is not careful we may find ourselves in the same situation after so much time and energy spent. We do for strange reasons tend to do that. And, again we will sacrifice our happiness and growth as an individual. Know your direction and stay on your path!

Direction and path, sooo important. When it comes to life changing changes especially. Direction and path is crucial to keeping one grounded in an otherwise flighty time. I have spent four years preparing for this change. Well, when i realized I was in a situation; stuck in the country with no drivers licence(driving no insurance) First six months was just holding it to gether, I lived in Toronto most my life. Big change. So much quiet.

Anyway, took me a year to realize I need to make changes, and for the best part change with in my self. That IS where true change begins. That my friends is where you sow your seeds, and you sow your seeds in the love for self. Owning yourself, your life, your thoughts grounds you puts you in control. That is what I’ve done for the past three years. Using Yoga; stretching and breathing I’ve gotten to push myself to the limits in many aspects of my life and in a much healthier way.

Meditation and contemplation are the most useful and the funnest tools I know for one to know one’s self, and I mean to truly know one’s self. Learning to live in the moment is an incredible journey experience. The end result; Free of fear!

Most of us know that fear exist in us, and sadly enough we’ve learned to live with it. The fear we learn to live with is sort of underlying current. Please try to understand, everyday life is and has become in past years more pronounced with political problems around the world, the economy, weather and climate change and problems going on with in our governments around the globe and in our back yards. Yes we are ladened with fears and worries, 2012 the list goes on.

Being at peace and love with self allows us to be and become confident, assertive, builds esteem in ones self. The best way for an individual to stay grounded is; Know thy self the rest is easy.

Remember friends; Own your thoughts, your self, and your life. They’re yours, you come into this life this world with those three things, you live and you leave this world with same. Rather we be young, old, rich, poor good or evil At the end of the day all we truly own is our Thoughts, Self and life.

In the end our deeds here on earth will determine our path.

When one is making changes in one’s life it’s not change itself you need to worry about, it’s about finding the right sources, help you need on your path. In these situations you need to rely on entities outside yourself. This is where one needs to know your plan, where you want to go and are going. Direction and focus!

Everyone has well intended advise. Others sometimes think that they know what’s best for us, hell sometime they do. Sometime you just need to do what makes you happy. We were each given our own lives to live, no one else can live it for us.


I See

The function of an expert is not to be more right than other people, but be wrong for more sophisticated reasons.


The universe is not only queerer than we suppose.
But queerer than we can suppose.

J.B.S Haldane

Who I Am

One must create a system, or be enslaved by another man’s; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.


Again, respect each man/woman’s path as an individual.

Spirit of Man, and Truth

The path of truth may not be the path of parallel lines but a path that follows one circle: By going right and climbing the circle, or going to the left and climbing the circle we are bound to meet at the top, although we started in appearently contrary directions. This is bound to be in the end, because truth is one

The paths of man are many, but they all in the end come to me.

Respect to all on thier path of life.

Time, Progress

Where there is creation there is progress. Where the is no creation there is no progress. Know the nature of creation.
Where there is joy there is creation, where there is no joy there is no creation. Know the nature of joy.
Where there is the infinite there is joy. There is no joy in the finite.
All true progress is an inner creation that leads to the joy of the infinite. When in the progress of our soul our god of love has been found and the words of beauty of dreams come true.


Buddhism is a belief system or destination, Yoga is the path to get there. Both teach one discipline over oneself. To rise above the turmoil of ones emotions and fears. To rid oneself of the many I’s that keep us from truly knowing ourself, our essence. To become truly conscious of our being in the moment. Yoga allows us a way to know whom dwells within our hearts being.

From one moment to the next we change, a new I pops up like a window pops up on a computer screen and we change, afraid to truly ask ourselves who we really are for fear of the answer. So, we suppress. The result unhappiness, lack of love for one’s self and others. The proof, just look around, how many people do we see who are truly happy. How do we treat others, as we would treat ourselves. This tells us we do not love and in some cases even like ourselves.

Yoga will not and does not change our lives, Yoga teaches us to be happy with ourselves, to care and love ourselves. When we are truly happy we will have the enlightenment and strength to change our lives, those we love and influence others around us in a positive way!
