The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer is the one book I would heartily suggest to everybody if there could only be one suggestion! I have both the book and the audio version. It’s great to hear Wayne Dyer reading the book. It can really get your day started off the right way!

Learn to Be a Connector

Amazon Image

A person who lives in a state of unity with the Source of all life doesn’t look any different from ordinary folks. These people don’t wear a halo or dress in special garments that announce their godlike qualities. But when you notice that they go through life as the lucky ones who seem to get all the breaks, and when you begin to talk to them, you realize how distinctive they are compared to people living at ordinary levels of awareness. Spend a few moments in conversation with these people who are connected to the power of intention and you see how unique they are.

These people, whom I call connectors to signify their harmonious connection with the field of intention, are individuals who have made themselves available for success. It’s impossible to get them to be pessimistic about achieving what they desire in their lives. Rather than using language that indicates that their desires may not materialize, they speak from an inner conviction that communicates their profound and simple knowing that the universal Source supplies everything.

They don’t say, With my luck things won’t work out. Instead, you’re much more likely to hear something like, I intend to create this and I know it will work out. No matter how you might attempt to dissuade them by pointing out all the reasons why their optimism ought to be curtailed, they seem blissfully blind to reality-check repercussions. It’s almost as if they’re in a different world, a world in which they can’t hear the reasons why things won’t work out.

Amazon ImageIf you engage them in conversation about this idea, they simply say something like, I refuse to think about what can’t happen, because I’ll attract exactly what I think about, so I only think about what I know will happen. It doesn’t matter to them what’s happened before. They don’t relate to the concepts of failure or it’s impossible. They simply, without fanfare, are unaffected by reasons for being pessimistic. They’ve made themselves available for success, and they know and trust in an invisible force that’s all-providing. They’re so well connected to the all-providing Source that it’s as if they have a natural aura preventing anything from getting through that might weaken their connection to the creative energy of the power of intention.

Connectors appreciate the world and everything in it. The same connection that they experience with nature they feel toward all beings, including those who lived before and those who have yet to arrive. They have a consciousness of the oneness, and therefore they make no distinctions such as them or those other people. To a connector, it is all we. If you could observe their inner world, you’d discover that they’re hurt by pain inflicted on others. They don’t have the concept of enemies, since they know that all of us emanate from the same divine Source. They enjoy the differences in the appearance and customs of others rather than disliking, criticizing, or feeling threatened by them. Their connection to others is of a spiritual nature, but they don’t separate themselves spiritually from anyone regardless of where they might live or how different their appearances or customs may be from their own. In their heart, connectors feel an affinity to all of life, as well as to the Source of all of life.

You can read this and more inspiring words from Wayne in his best-selling book, The Power of Intention.

I also have The Secrets of Power of Intention CD Set and it’s also amazing. I highly suggest getting it too!

Lost In Translation

I finally saw the movie last night. Lost In Translation was fantastic! It’s rare that I am this moved and affected by a movie.

I know it’s already approaching 9 years old – but for some reason I have never seen Lost In Translation until now.

I must say it is one of the best movies I have ever seen.

It was particularly interesting because the movie is set in Japan and the earthquake of 2 weeks ago is still fresh on my mind. Especially considering the nuclear reactors are still not under control.

 I have always liked Bill Murray and it wasn’t until I checked out the filmography in the Directv credits for Lost In Translation that I realized he has been in so many of my favorite films. Ground Hog Day and Kingpin to name a couple. He has been in many more.

But I think Lost In Translation tops them all because the film is a masterpiece in so many ways.

Sofia Coppola so graciusly captured the mood and feelings of this creative viewpoint of a premise that is so unusual yet is so relatable to so many of us because it can be twisted to match our own life experiences.

Sure, while I related with Bill Murray and his “mid life crisis” while being stuck in the chaos and complexity of Japanese culture and society, I can’t claim to be the big movie star he was. He was getting millions of dollars to be in a whiskey ad campaign in Japan and even though he wasn’t looking for it – fate found it’s way to him and put him together with Scarlett Johanson’s character.

Both Murray and Johanson played their parts exceptionally well. Mostly quiet and understated. It was that and the peculularities of the Japanese culture and the wonders of the people of Tokyo that played togeher with the 2 actors to make this an unforgettable movie experience. 

The film style, the music, the cityscapes and the capturing of the culture made this one incredible experience. I rarely watch movies more than once, but this film definitely deserves to be watched again.

LOL – it’s a crutch!

Do you know any people that all too often include LOL in just about every sentence?

It’s a crutch. It makes it easier to argue or disagree or say OH – OK – I understand LOL

I don’t have a whole lot to say about it – but I have noticed more and more people are doing this.
