So often our underlying self talk is, I am not enough! Is this something you are aware of for yourself? Often unconscious, it drives our thoughts, feelings and actions, ultimately working against us rather than for us.
What if our underlying self talk can become – I am enough! For in the sight of God, we are. And from this inner experience of ‘enough-ness’ even more of our true Self can come forth, guiding us on our life journey.
Join us as we share Unity ideas and practices that help us know, we are enough.
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something—your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
I have always found him inspiring. I do not agree with all he believed in but I can see how what he believed in worked for him and many others.
I was recommended to read this article (CLICK) recently and these bits I found telling about how to START anything that can lead to running something successful. Vague, ha?
People who eventually find success start by trying things. Lots of things. They succeed at some. They fail at others. They learn from those successes and those failures.
And this is how it is in my experience. I have tried many things. People laughed at me for keeping on trying something ‘new’ again. Though they were not new at all. They were just different aspects of the same road I was walking. And this road is often invisible to the untrained eyes. And this is the key, I think. I never let anybody discourage me. I maybe wrong, most of the time, but I am wrong as a result of my own choices not by somebody else’s. Plus I have learnt a lot. I keep on learning. I may or may not be successful by definition of the world.
I, however, consider myself very successful. I have walked a path so far that I carved out for myself. I failed numerous times but it has never stopped me trying again and again. I have pioneered in creating services and surfaces that contributed to the life of many people positively. I am grateful for that. I may not be successful in terms of how much money I have, but I am rather rich in terms of ‘thank you!’s’. My focus has always been on creating products, services and surfaces that add quality and depth to the life of others. And I have done that so far very successfully.
Getting here was a long and laborious road because I kept on ‘tryin out’ new things. I kept on changing the equilibrium and the way I see and experience things. I plunged into myself, stirred up the mud causing heartache and fear, then came out with little treasures. This approach has contributed greatly to the way I live my life. And my life has been, so far, a exciting adventure, full on living!
Many people are living in an invisible fear trance that affects every aspect of their lives. This animation addresses these questions: 1. How did we get so scared? 2. How does fear change our relationships? 3. What does fear do to your body? 4. How can you change your fear to flow now? 5. Free of fear, what’s possible?
As I was reading today’s Daily Word from Unity.org, I had a eureka moment, a moment of inspiration! 🙂
This time of year, I am not a happy bunny. It is not the weather per se that affects my mood, the colder and wetter season. I just feel tired. As we are going into the darkness, I feel less energized and interested. I don’t feel like buzzing or chatting much, I prefer staying put and watch a sweet movie.
I think it is normal for this time of year. However, I also noticed that I am not motivated to do the things that usually bring me pleasure or a sense of satisfaction. I lost my mojo.
After reading today’s daily word I was reminded the inspiration is everywhere. I only need to look. This time of year, I may not want to be a busy bunny but I can take the time to observe and find those instances that fill me with inspiration. I do not always have to create my own happiness. I can allow others ‘ happiness or the peace and contentment of nature to brush me over and fill me up.
I love Kandinsky because he believed in the deep connection between ART and our SOUL. He wrote extensively about the way ART influences the SPIRIT and vice versa.
“Painting was a spiritual activity for Kandinsky.
In 1912 he published the book, Concerning the Spiritual in Art. He believed that art should not be merely representational but should strive to express spirituality and the depth of human emotion…”
In his book, Concerning the Spiritual in Art, Kandinsky writes,
“Color directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul.”
Trauma is the invisible force that shapes our lives. It shapes the way we live, the way we love and the way we make sense of the world. It is the root of our deepest wounds. Dr. Maté gives us a new vision: a trauma-informed society in which parents, teachers, physicians, policy-makers and legal personnel are not concerned with fixing behaviours, making diagnoses, suppressing symptoms and judging, but seek instead to understand the sources from which troubling behaviours and diseases spring in the wounded human soul. He points us to the path of individual and collective healing.

Have you heard of the ‘bulletproof coffee’ or TEDx? Do you know what they have in common? KIM HERB. He is the inventor and co-creator of both.
I love the guy. He is easy-going, funny and mighty creative!
Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Herb is best known as Founder of the long-running Thinking Digital Conference. The 8th Annual Thinking Digital Conference takes place in May 2015. In addition to Thinking Digital, Herb is the founder of the TEDxLiverpool, TEDxManchester, TEDxSheffield and TEDxNewcastle. He is a Board Director for Tech City UK and an advisory board member for branded content agency Captive Minds in London.
Mr Kim taught me that being creative means to create surfaces where others can come in an do great things.
Being creative hardly applies that one is artsy. Most creatives are not artistic at all. Being creative is to create things that others can use for even greater things. One of the most famous creators is Edison who apparently invented the lightbulb. Mr Apple, Steve Jobs, is another famous creator

This lovely therapist explains how emotions that are trapped in your body can be released by ‘physical movement’. She talks extensively about the different types of anxiety related issues and how you can deal with them ‘hands on’.
Personally, I find ‘releasing trough expressing’ the best therapy. I also believe in the healing power of meditative practices and alternative medicine.
In this video she, once again talks about how to use our bodies to move through emotionally difficult and painful experiences.
Becoming ‘aware’ of myself and my life has been a long journey for me. I am so committed that I created a two-months long program around awareness. Though the program revolves around different themes such as patience, acceptance and more, it is designed to provide powerful and playful ways to become aware of who we are in our Essence (in our core) and who we are not (the conditioned mind-patterns).
To my observation, most people find it ‘scary’ to become present. It is understandable because as soon as awareness takes hold in your consciousness, you become fully responsible for your life and your decisions.
Until you stay ‘unaware’, you can blame the world – the family, the neighbour, the government, God, etc – for anything you feel uncomfortable or frustrated with. As soon as, you start seeing your ‘patterns’ you will start having choices how to respond. Having a choice in how to respond to any situation is LIBERATING! You stop feeling trapped and life becomes a journey rather than a drag!
