TROM: The Reality of Me

TROM the reality of me

If you haven’t heard of this yet, TROM is a 13 hour long documentary (yep, 13 hours) that discusses everything from the big bang to the current state of humanity, and everything else in between (religion, education, science, war, health, UFO’s, death… the list goes on and on.) Once you’ve gotten the bigger picture, it focuses on alternative solutions such as the Venus Project. Good stuff, worth a look!

There Is a Space

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

When we react to something, what actually happens is that our brain thinks to itself, “Hmmm, where have I encountered a similar experience before?” and then it re-acts, meaning: acts again. It’s a simple survival mechanism, but it doesn’t have to run on automatic. At any given moment we have the option to pause and say: “Thanks, but no thanks.. This time I’m responding differently.”

Little Italy Street Art

The streets of Little Italy NYC were packed tonight and the place were buzzing with tourists, restaurant goers and street vendors. We were invited to a birthday party at a bar nearby, but I was more interested in sneaking out and photographing some of the amazing murals and art around the area. Little Italy has really turned into a hot spot for artists to showcase what they have to offer.

speak the truth

I’ve reached a point in my life where honesty and openness have become a priority. It isn’t always easy, but it’s always fulfilling. To stay true to myself is the ultimate freedom.

 

Grounded – Full Documentary

I love this movie.. Ever since I saw it I make way more of a conscious effort to go barefoot, lay on the grass, etc. Animals know to stay connected to the Earth and understand it’s natural healing qualities. It’s only us humans who go out of our way to separate ourselves with floors, carpets, shoes, socks, not to mention building our homes and offices higher and higher above the ground.

But…

But...

If you insist on contradicting your desires with “buts” all the time, (i.e. “I want to follow my passion BUT I don’t think I can make money from it”), try switching it around and adding a “but” to your doubts, instead. For example: “I don’t think I can make money from doing what I love…BUT…I know that others have done it so I’m willing to give it some more thought, maybe research the idea, and seek examples of those who make money from similar passions.”

Next time a doubt comes to mind, try adding a “but…” to that thought and see what you come up with. Your brain won’t know what hit it and your heart will thank you.

How Thoughts & Feelings Create Reality

Vibrational frequency

Did you know that your thoughts and feelings directly create your reality?

This is not a new concept, we do it all the time. The thoughts we think make us feel a certain way, and that feeling causes us to vibrate on a certain frequency – just like a radio dial tuning in to a certain station. Thoughts that make us feel bad have lower frequencies, and those that make us feel good have higher ones.

SO, what happens when you tune in to a certain frequency? Well, the same as when you tune in to a certain radio station – you get more of the same! That radio station (life) will continue to provide you with more and more things that match that low or high thought or feeling.

You can change the station, at any given moment, by reaching for a thought that makes you FEEL a little better than you do right now. The key word here is “feel” because your feelings and emotions will always be the indication of whether you are in a low or higher vibrational frequency.
