Music & The Brain…powerful Truth.

leave a comment »

Every time you’re listening to Music, whether is with or without lyrics, you are creating something. That which you’ve create has the power to fuel your soul continually at greater levels than just words, whether positive or not. That piece is going to be in your brain and off course can be redeemed if what you have created wasn’t so great. If it was positive would then still infusing greater amounts of endorphin as you engage to it when need it. We must paid attention to what we are creating, because it works fine also when the influence is negative, not that powerful, but works anyway.

Music is a great tool and goes to greater levels of influence as you grow in life. Music brings hope to the soul by infusing the right mixture of sounds and lyrics. Paid attention to what you are listening to, to what you are creating, to all you agree to…even far from your ears, then to your brain, thinking, hopes, words. All counts, all counts.

Listen to good stuff!!! (It makes you smarter) Lest Go!
Lest build something Greater!

Is Fear written in your Face?

with 5 comments

The Brilliant Self Talking comes to the Rescue! Once more.

I was just seating around writing some Poetry about my future. It came to my mind that I would be standing in front of what it is already written. Once there, what I am going to do about it? Laugh at? Be fearful? Nothing? Or I would switch my thinking? How ‘bout starting to position myself for that breakthrough? I believe I just nailed!

We tend to fight circumstances every day by engaging more pain to whatever is there already, by default. But, we have the great opportunity of becoming the solution of the problem by the way we respond to it. Lest face it, what can go wrong anyway? I must try!
Habits, Fears, Circumstances running the race for us is not going to make it.

Living in perspective is the starting point because without a picture of the ending, how the heck we are going to get there? Or even better…What is exactly what I desire? enough for me to be steadfast at the vision, the goal, the dream, and the breakthrough. With a perspective in paper we can do more since we now know how to romance whatever I had agreed to become. Because knowing who you are is in its very essence “all that together” your only and most fulfilling juice. Who does not want some? I do.

If today, looking at that mirror in the Den, all of a sudden you find yourself reflecting something you don’t want, and then ask yourself this question: “I am living it?” If the answer is Yes (a happy face full of truth), all is well with my soul. Otherwise, we have an awesome work to do to lead us into discovering WHO WE ARE. We are not fear, We are not hobbies, We are not pain, We are not lost, and We are not discouragement. That’s there to be overcome, to be won, to be forgotten, and some times forgiven. We, we are GREAT.

So, Today I was reminded of do my Self Talking in a “Brilliant Fashion”, taking the best radiant idea someone has about me. That person isn’t other than God Himself. I believe He is the kindest person in my experience ever. So from there I went to discover what He thinks of me. We think great about each other, we LOVE each other.

“We pursue each other”.

If God is Love, I want to become it. All start by HOW I THINK OF ME. Today, lest all think great of ourselves, regardless, because the truth is…We Are GREAT!! We Are!!!

What the Heck is Faith?

with 6 comments

I’ve read about the words “substance” and “evidence” for this answer. Until, I was hungry by that “definition” and found out that it wasn’t its definition, but its consequence. So it read: “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Then the idea of blind faith isn’t any good. Faith is work. Indeed.

I thought that faith was kind of agreeing with what I want even if I know is not possible in supernatural terms, I’ve believe from a “blind faith”. But faith isn’t blind if you do more than just think about the situation. To really be faith it means that you have a certainty for it. Otherwise it would be wishful thinking. Now, that’s weird.

The word Faith comes from the word EMUNAH (Hebrew), that’s the cool part of learning more Hebrew (I wish I can learn more, I know like two words). So, the definition of Emunah is in essence: SUPPORT. Ok, too far here. Support what?

Well, in order to support something you got to “know” that something, but even better to know the Source. Is funny how now in New Age lessons we have hear to refer to God as the “source”, in real He is the source. Never a mute source…if you really want to ever support Him, the least you can do is to know His will. Is that cool or what!

More than just seating around, dreaming those dreams do the self talking, writing down my own view, and calling that FAITH; real alive faith is to hear God and support God. Emunah. Google it and read it yourself. Eat the information. Downloaded to your heart. I’m talking not just about God’s general will, I’m talking about you conquering the greater vision you can have access to for a greater life here on Earth. Hungry?

Faith needs God.
Faith needs you.

Faith gets us to do some things that look “illogical”. But Faith isn’t illogical when God is at the center of our affection, our love, our view, our focus, our path. God wants us to have a fun life, to play the flute. To that…We must Have Faith. !!! “To have Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Shalom!

Emunah God!!!

Don’t miss a trick. Seasoning for good talks.

with 5 comments

How much salt I put in a dish depends on the recipe, right? So I got the “A+” dish in my brain, then go out and as soon as I find any “unsalty” fella I start to work for a perfect formula to work in them, right? Don’t you do the same? At least that was me, and at times I do it again. But I’m learning to be just of one mind.

I worked so hard in order to discover formulas so then I can change people’s behavior and make this world a better place…for me. I thought.

The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out. The point that I missed was that it wasn’t about fixing behaviors, or helping them to realize so, since that is a personal journey (turning to the best way), the point is to learn to love all people sincerely even if that change them by little steps. I do not mean that I consider myself better than others, but my point is that some times we can figure out our perfect view, and we want others to join, just for love. But indeed love is unconditional. So, that lesson is for me as well. Steping back? Just doing what I know is true.

Have you watch how Missionaries work? Ok. They study all about the place they are going to work, the people that they are going to live with, new words, new traditions, new Nation, new everything. When the Mission takes off and they want to communicate their messages all they do is do it in the “WAY” these people are familiar with. From what they read to what they eat. So then you have a bunch of people who are partaking the same bread that all they know. If all you use is “your way” of talking, books you read, experiences of your own, then they would be amazed…thankful by your effort, but still hungry. When you speak in their language, meaning their whole culture, is then like an opportunity for them to connect with you at the same channels. All these effort from you in connecting what you want to release in a way that they can “touch”, is then worth! Feedback is born, and when that happen is just the first brick to a great journey. So isn’t about re-making robots to our personal way of “being” but embracing diversity thru loving others without conditions, out of choice and unselfishly. That’s the shortcut. Just simple but sincere words. We want this world to change ever? Love is the only shortcut. Not the feeling of love, but that in every action we do it with a sincere heart, and that can not happen unless we have empathy, not sympathy. To me is between feeling sorry OR realizing the potential on every person I met. Is a whole world of difference. Understand the common passion with all people. Compassion.

Some cultures, traditions, Nations have complicated words for simple things. This reminds me of those Laws waiting to be understood in Congress, I must said…read. No wonder with such an amount of ink, Who would ever really read those? And in the midst of trying may you lose your heart, or your head. Better to use simple words that all of us can understand. And we all know you like Emerson…no worries. “Use your heads as you live and work among outsiders. Don’t miss a trick. Make the most of every opportunity. Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out.” That’s a great piece of advice right there! Huh. Paul of Tarsus was very good at this.

Every time I try to communicate is this inner battle. One hand wants to look polish. The other hand wants to use simple language, the shortcut to the heart. So I recommend to use better the simple language. For me complicated words are those who sum one whole idea on one line. Well, I use that and paint it with my colors, at a point that anybody can relate to. No that all people would like it or understand it, but I’m sure my point is clear for most of all. Building Healthy Relationships with true love has to be Our Destiny, otherwise we miss the point of being in the top of the Mountain.

A Hot real state. I like to search and learn from what’s going on around people’s lives and put that in my own words, but off course when portraying my own is fun as well. You have your own permission to use any color you want. All the potential. Risk of looking like a fool, but to me that’s just the way to live. I have my own permission to live just a Great Life! Investing time like in loving people is the best way to engage and build community, knowing that the matter of change for the better (If that is ever a concern) depends on the person itself, transformation could be exhorted in a godly manner by anyone that loves you, but the decision is personal, never scare someone into your amazing life. Better to do what you know and then just let LIFE take the stage. Everyone is invited to grow, and is personal. Always free and fun to watch. Is not about fixing people, but loving people. Because if we don’t love them, we don’t have agreement, and if there is not agreement from a sincere heart, nothing powerful can never take place. Making sure we LOVE them first is their stage to choose the best for them from a real view of what we put to the test…our LOVE for them.

So I hope that my life get much and much JUICE this coming seasons, so then I can delight all who read this lines and transmit some of the great graces who make those moments possible. And I have then more ingredients for a rich conversation. Is not wonder in how Love gets out to work, so I am in for partnering for more. Yes!

To A Great Life!!!
To A Great Journey!!!
