Transform Challenges Into Opportunities: Connect with Your Strengths

Today we are experiencing uncertain times. The structures we thought would support us are no longer working. Has this presented a challenge for you?  Do you feel lost and confused? Do you see many opportunities before you, and feel overwhelmed with the many options?  Do you wish to take action, and find yourself hesitant with the uncertainty?

Change - Tiny Actions, Consistently Taken, Bring Big Results

This year I have decided to look for the best.  It all started over the holiday break, as I was reflecting on the last words of my father to our family before he passed. He was the son of an immigrant. It was his dream for our family to honor the "Finest of America."

Declarations: A Powerful Secret for change

Now that we are in the New Year, many are taking time to reflect and resolve to change for the better. Before making resolutions and setting new goals, I suggest that you relate it to a higher purpose.

There are many ways in which we can direct our efforts for the future.  We can do it by honoring our higher intentions, creating a vision, mission or purpose, and following it with a plan with specific goals.  A powerful secret for change is to make sure all of the aspects of change are aligned. You can do this with a declaration.

Socially Conscious Business

Making the world a better place starts from within. the more we identify our values and higher purpose, clearing the blocks, the greater the impact. The more our work comes truly from a good place in our heart, the more we are effective in creating meaningful and purposeful actions that promote healthy change.

Hope: The Stirrings of Consciousness

One large source of shift, may result from the stirrings of consciousness. James O’ Dea shares that It is becoming increasingly apparent that once people see the damage being done to the whole, they can no longer pursue the self interest of the parts. For example, the overall well being of the community as a whole must take precedence before the financial gain of any one part. No longer can companies pollute at the expense of the community. Similarly, a child cannot grow into a responsible adult without support from a caring family and community.The deeper patterns and connections must be addressed.

Consciousness in Creating a New Earth

James Walker, in reviewing Eckart Tolle’s book, “A New Earth” gives us insight on Oprah’s endorsement of Tolle’s book. Walker asks, what’s the connection between Oprah and Tolle? He says, “The key, I think, is the link Oprah makes between finding yourself and saving the planet. This is a powerful new connection, especially in view of the concern about climate change and environmental degradation.”

Beyond Denial: The Transformation Challenge

As we look into our world, we can no longer live in denial. When we face this moment in time, we feel challenged in every way. The air is challenged, the oceans are challenged, the economy is challenged. The masterpieces of our life our challenged in every way. And yet, James O’Dea President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, says we “were born for such a time as this.” — “Decipher the hour. This moment in evolutionary time calls you to be a witness. You are called whether you are young or old. Otherwise, you would not be here at this time.” He has summarized the situation quite well.
