I ran into Johnathan Goldsmith at the Last Book Store in Downtown LA!




 

Anxiety is an emotion we experience when we believe we are vulnerable

to some sort of threat in the future.  These thoughts are created due to experiences

from the past that we are now projecting onto our future.  Investigating our thoughts and

bringing ourself to the awareness that they cannot harm us cure anxiety.

"Less is More" couldn't be more true especially after experiencing a recent wildfire that forced

us to evacuate our home.  It's important to practice letting go and living a minimal, meaningful

lifestyle.  Letting go of useless things and unproductive people around us helps us outlive our

day-to-day life we try to make the most of.  Here's a list of things you should always 

keep in your car for each individual incase of an emergency:

1.  Wate bottles, energy bars, first aid kit

2.  Cell phone / laptop chargers, glasses if you wear them!

3.  A small bag for pjs, t-shirt, towel, toothbrush, toiletries, slippers

4.  Save all important doc in your Dropbox (copy of driver's license, passport, etc.)








 

....YOU and ME!!!

It takes years for some people to understand and find their purpose on this earth.  This

thought provoking quote is a great way to find the right path in life.  We can make a difference

for ourselves and others in the future by correcting our past and give meaning to our existence.

Being spiritual rather than religious, I personally don't find the need to follow

any traditions of a religion to connect with God.  I can find God in the giant waves

of the ocean, the wet rain drops against my skin, the strangers I meet while traveling, the

tall trees that grow from tiny seeds, the process of child birth, the unbeatable talent 

of an actor, the desire to change lives one human at a time....


How do you connect with God?  What does religion mean to you?  

  




 

Remembering my trip to the beautiful city of Manchester, UK during the tragic incident

that recently occurred at a concert there.  It's true.. "Most of the trouble in the world is

caused by people wanting to be important." -Eliot.  I think that the horrific acts by the

mentally unstable take place when they find themselves lost in life and would lean on anything

that fills their emptiness.  This is why the uneducated who's ultimate goal is to gain power targets the

vulnerable by brainwashing them with an emotional tool, the religion, which they misinterpret and use only for

manipulation purposes.  This scenario can be applied at a smaller scale as well.  For instance, when a child is

lonely, he or she grows up craving attention from peers and is lead to the wrong path; when an insecure

mother uses her title of being a mother to manipulate her son to keep him from living his life out of fear 

of being abandoned; or when a sales person manipulates clients to sell just to meet his or her

monetary needs in order to spend on things that can be used to impress others.  The best way to

eliminate this issue is to educate ourselves to be emotionally strong and keeping ourselves

busy with the positive things in life that better our mind, body, soul,

career, relationship with self and others, etc.

...or what you hear about a guy!

Have you ever been caught in the middle of rumors spread about you and you had no idea

why someone would do that.. especially if they seemed to really like you before?  Well, this quote

explains exactly why.  Unfortunately, sometimes we are not able to have full control over our

emotions such as jealousy.  According to Psychology Today, jealousy is a complex emotion that

encompasses feelings ranging from fear of abandonment to rage and humiliation.  It strikes both

men and women and is most typically aroused when a person perceives a threat to a

valued relationship from a third party.













 

"Most of the trouble in the world is caused by people wanting to be important."

A quote that sums up most of the issues we deal with whether at the macro or micro level.

Unfortunately, one person's ego can destroy many lives.  

Ego encourages us to be selfish in order to fulfill our needs.  Need of power, money, beauty, or attention.

I call those people "drunk drivers."

Drunk drivers act mindlessly hurting not only others but also themselves.

To me, a drunk person is not a bad person, a drunk person is a lost person who needs a guide.

Be a guide.

What is sexuality to you?








I love this quote!  

Most of us get so lost in keeping up with the Kardashians and all the other reality shows

or simply our friends and family that we start living to make others happy at our own cost.  

By the time it occurs to us that that is not what life is about, it usually is too late.  

But we can always start by cleaning out the clutter in our mind and renovating it with wisdom.  

Surrounding ourselves by mentors, books, nature or anything that feeds our mind and soul shifts our focus

and revitalizes us.
