Living in a designer home, driving the coolest car and dressing in the latest fashion are glamorous goals enthusiastically promoted by shiny magazines. But spending all that time gathering those things in order to keep your ego happy can have negative health consequences. If you overwork and under nurture yourself, your priorities are out of balance. When it comes to enjoying the good life, a healthy body and peaceful mind are key. If these parts of you don’t feel good, nothing else will either. Don’t sacrifice the temple of your body…

For a castle of goodies.

Steve and Jarl

The words you use can be the seeds of empire or tools of destruction. They can delineate what you believe is possible or fear is hopeless; encourage friends or create adversaries; support a healthy self-image or tear it down; applaud others or critique them; express beautiful poetry or spout unpleasant invective. They determine not only how others perceive you, but how you feel about the world. Words are important building blocks in the chain of creation. One of the most transformational things you can do for your life is to use them…

Consciously.

Steve and Jarl

Whether you find the world wonderful or miserable, it will soon change. And, though it’s worthwhile taking action and pursuing your agenda, it’s more important to develop the mental flexibility to adapt to new conditions and find equilibrium when the world doesn’t suit your preferences. When you don’t lament the absence of what was, you’re free to embrace…

What is.

Steve and Jarl

Whether you’re feeling happy or sad, loveable or unworthy, it probably has to do with your programming. You are a highly sophisticated recording instrument. Every thought, comment and interaction you’ve ever had is stored in your psychic database. This record not only creates your perception of yourself, it determines how you feel about the world. If you want a different experience, you need to change the data. Replace negative self-talk and complaints with what you’d like to see instead and what you’re already grateful for. The more you notice to appreciate…

 

The better you feel.

 

Steve and Jarl

 

Getting attention from the outside world may seem like a worthy objective, but no amount of external admiration will ever be enough to sustain you. If you want to live joyfully, you need to develop yourself inwardly. You do it by learning to accept yourself and live in alignment with your truth. That way, your light doesn’t dim when others stop noticing you because it’s glowing the only way that’s real

From the inside out.

Steve and Jarl, 

Trying to control others when you think they need your help rarely produces the results you desire. When you communicate your lack of faith in them, it actually reduces their effectiveness. Besides, your desire to control could be the result of your own fear. Sometimes those feelings get projected outward because it’s less scary than dealing with them yourself. Next time you feel an impulse to control others, ask yourself what you’re afraid of. Then relax and let the other person do it their way.There’s only one person you need to worry about controlling…

You.

Steve and Jarl 

You roll through life collecting individual experiences just like a snowball collects mass. Some experiences you shed like water off a duck’s back. Others stay with you forever. The degree to which you make the good instead of bad part of your long-term story is completely up to you. The snowball is…

In your court.

Steve and Jarl

Blame is a dead end. While it may feel more comfortable to believe that other people’s behavior is responsible for the way you feel, it takes away your power and makes you a victim. The remedy is not to blame yourself, but rather to examine cause and effect. Once you realize that your thinking is causing the way you feel, you can begin to…

Create a different effect.

Steve and Jarl

You don’t have to accomplish anything to be fulfilled. What’s necessary is a simple shift in perspective from thinking that specific requirements need to be met before you can feel good, to one in which you are willing to feel good no matter what. You make the transition by accepting this moment exactly as it is.

Will you?

Steve and Jarl

The overall condition of humanity is a product of every, single person alive. If you want to improve it, change your own emotional offering. Every time you feel grateful, you offer a gift to the world. If everyone expressed appreciation regularly the world you experience would be so different that you may not even recognize it. One of the most difficult things to grasp is that, even though most intractable problems seem to be out there, life will only get better when you take responsibility for and work on…

Yourself.

Steve and Jarl 

You’re taught from a young age to compare yourself with peers, so it’s normal to derive your sense of self-worth in relation to others. But that comparison isn’t accurate. The people you evaluate yourself against haven’t had the same opportunities and aren’t endowed with the same natural abilities as you, so their performance level has very little to do with yours. It’s fine to want to improve your ability — just don’t be a prisoner of comparison. There’s only one person it ever makes sense to compare yourself with…

You.

Steve and Jarl

The more you practice anything, the better you get at it. If you want to become an expert at living joyfully, practice focusing your attention on what you want rather than on what you don’t like. Drop the story about what’s wrong and redirect your focus. Accept that this moment is exactly the way it needs to be. After you remove your resistance to what’s already happened, you’ll be in a perfect position look for…

What’s right.

Steve and Jarl

There’s no sane reason to argue with reality. It already is. Resisting it isn’t just pointless, it’s crazy. Any dissatisfaction you feel originates within you. What deeply annoys you might actually appeal to someone else. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t try to change what you don’t like. Just skip the part where you make a case against what already exists. Accept it as the reality of the situation and focus on the change you’d like to see. Instead of ruining the present by crying about the past, accept it and…

Create a joyful future.

Steve and Jarl

It’s a natural survival strategy in childhood to want to please your caretakers, but living your life based on what you think will impress others in adulthood can seriously affect your well-being. While it’s delicious to bask in external approval, you’re the one who has to live with the results of your choices. When you’re out of alignment with your essential self, satisfaction eludes you. Learning to know what you want and live it is the key to well-being. When you’re honest about your feelings and act authentically, the people you attract will appreciate… 

The real you.

 

 

Do occasional noises from people or wildlife in your environment disturb your peace of mind? Does every iota of their activity feel like a personal insult to you? Resistance only makes matters worse. Next time you feel disturbed, realize that the actual cause of your irritation is your own thinking. Close your eyes for a moment and allow what is to just be. See it as part of the same fabric of reality, born out of a single matrix, that includes you. Radiate acceptance and love into it. When you stop resisting, what’s left is wonderful…

Freedom.

Steve and Jarl 

 

 

While a fully formed identity is a healthy component of early development, maintaining it can be a real struggle. The more identified you are with what you do and have, the more trapped you’ll be. Continuously scrambling to alter your identity in order to project the ‘right’ image to the world takes a lot of work and yields dubious results. The alternative is living in the present moment, going with the flow and feeling grateful for the abundance… 

You already have. 

Steve and Jarl
