    I Believe We Have The Power To Control Our Lives

    I have read a lot here on EP and heard and seen a lot in my real life how people complaint about their unhappy lives and failures. I have seen many people going into bad situations from stable points.... I don't know what happens to them that they only fall .... if they lose...

    More Often Than Not.

    I enjoy remaining blissfully unaware in most situations. It helps me to maintain a certain distance from the drama that seems to be going on everywhere. That's not to say I don't care, it just means that I will not put my sanity at risk to fix yours. There are, of course...

    The Blue Feather Project

     I discovered this wonderful idea that we create our reality a few years ago. However, it wasn't simply a conclusion that I came up with over time... I was far too young for thinking thoughts as deep as this! Instead, I got it proven to me that it actually works.. and that...

    Why Must We Do This To Ourselves?

    I Believe In Partial Control

    I believe that we do not shape our reality entirely. I believe that in order to know that the computer is a computer, it takes the faith of knowing someone Else's idea and accepting it as our own truth. Red is red because we were told it is red.  As for the...

    Bronnie Ware's book, 'The Top Five Regrets of the Dying - A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing' is a memoir of her own life and how it was transformed through the regrets of the dying people she cared for.

    Top 5 Regrets of the Dying For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives. People grow a lot when they are faced with their...

    It's True and Not Just At the Surface...

    To me, it's a fundamental truth that we create and attract what occurs in our lives.  I think the reason that happens is that the world reflects back to us what we put out there.  Here's a real example from EP. When I found EP, the very first groups I had added were...

    Life Is a Self-fulfilling Prophecy

    I truly believe life is a self-fulfilling prophecy.  I don't think that we necessarily all get what we deserve, but we do create the way we see the world and therefore the way we act in it.  And the way we act has a counter to it which is the way others act towards us...

    The Way I See It

    The layer of life that is based on reality, isn't real at all, but a figment of each persons view...their view of others, of life, and of themselves.   so reality, isn't about what's real- it's what's important, apparent and wanted.  It's the thoughts that we believe...

    and think and say and read effect who we are and how we perceive things. There's really no question about it. It's how two people can look at the same thing and see two completely different things.
