You always need to do some planning, but when it comes to truly experiencing life, you have to surrender to the reality of this moment and let go of the past and the future. Neither actually exist while you’re thinking about them. This very instant is the only time anything ever happens. Accepting it as it is, positively informs your next moment. If what is doesn’t feel good, ask yourself what you can do right now to help you feel the way you want. Your point of power is always the same…

NOW.

Steve and Jarl

Living simply may seem boring if you’re identified with certain ideas about yourself related to educational pedigree, the car you drive, the house you live in or financial success. The more attached to outer trappings, the more you seek acknowledgment from others. However, far from boring, when you release yourself from ego-identification with all things external, you free yourself to focus on what actually matters in attaining true happiness: How you feel. Chasing recognition is often the result of unresolved feelings of inadequacy. The only way to heal that…

Is to feel it.

Steve and Jarl

You are an artist and your life is your canvas. Your body of work includes all of your material creations as well as the many more subtle (and important) things like how you cultivate kindness, sensitivity and joy. Every moment you add more layers of shape, color and character to the grand opus that is your life. Your feelings, emotions and thoughts are the materials through which you create. When you’re consciously aware that the quality of your life experience is determined by your intention, you can work skillfully to create…

Masterpieces.

Steve and Jarl

Even though everyone wants to feel good, most look for it in the wrong places. Contrary to popular opinion, money, mates and material conditions aren’t the answer. Your mental diet creates the way you feel about life. And, while it’s not a casual affair to change the way you view the world, it’s good news because you are in control of it. You can become consciously aware of how your thinking makes you feel. Once you see which thoughts wreak havoc on your state of mind, positive change…

Flows naturally.

Steve and Jarl

If you have a habit of feeling bad about yourself when things go wrong, it’s probably difficult for you to acknowledge the part you played in the way things transpired. If you aren’t able to see the impact your thoughts, words and actions have on your life, you won’t be able to make modifications to produce better results. On the other hand, if you acknowledge that you do your best in each moment (which is the truth for all of us), you can modulate your behavior without feeling bad yourself and…

Evolve rapidly.

Steve and Jarl

If you look at your interactions with others as part of a perpetually unfolding story of cause and effect, everything holds valuable information to help you improve your understanding of reality. Imagine you’re a technician who’s always searching for methods to better navigate through life. When you turn within to investigate the effects you see out there, your technique will evolve quickly. Don’t take it personally when the universe suggests you do something differently, just take it in

And adapt.

In order to enjoy yourself, you don’t really need any particular conditions. It actually works the other way around. You have to feel good first before you’ll enjoy what’s happening. Embody the feeling you think you’ll experience once you receive or become what you’re working toward. Doing it before those conditions show up is the key. You’ll never get to happiness if you’re in the habit of being overwhelmed, stressed or grumpy. The way to increase the likelihood of future happiness is really very simple…

Practice being that way now.

Steve and Jarl

The more you look for something, the greater the chance you’ll find it. If you are determined to catalog every way in which the world seems unfair, dangerous or hopeless, you will certainly be able to find evidence that justifies your opinion. Likewise, if you believe that the world is a playground for limitless beauty, growth, compassion, kindness and miracles, you will find that. The difference?

Your experience of life.

Steve and Jarl

Single cell organisms feel the presence of food in their vicinity and expand to encompass these nutrients in order to sustain themselves. They don’t strategize about how they’re going to hunt down a tasty meal, they just sense it out there and include it within themselves. You too can do this by knowing what you want and then consciously expanding enough to feel and embody having it. If you imagine having what you want so thoroughly that it feels totally real, it’s on it’s way…

Expand and include.

Steve and Jarl

If you think your loved ones are supposed to make you happy, you’re operating under an erroneous and damaging misconception. Expecting your mate to satisfy your needs places too much burden on them and usually backfires. When you take responsibility for your own happiness, ironically, others will be inclined to contribute to your well being…

Voluntarily.

Steve and Jarl

If life doesn’t show up the way you want it to, don’t fret. There’s a remedy. First, realize that your thinking and behavior isn’t in alignment with what you actually want. Second, go to neutral. Drop the desire for things to be other than they are. Accept what is. From this vibration, you can visualize what you do want. Embody the feeling of having it. Clearing your mind by going to neutral not only feels good now, it prepares you for ongoing fulfillment.

Spectacular.

Steve and Jarl

Blaming the world for your dissatisfaction is a waste of time and makes you feel powerless. Reality doesn’t get it wrong. What presents itself in each moment is the result of the contributions of everyone on the planet. Each person acts to the best of their ability from their current level of evolution. Resisting what is won’t rectify the situation, but it will prevent you from feeling joyful. Stop comparing what you see to what you think ‘should’ be happening and thank the messengers who provide opportunities for you to learn…

How to be happy.

Steve and Jarl

Everyone has individual tastes. The less self-aware you are, the less likely you are to curb the habit of being overly critical when something doesn’t suit your preferences. Every judgment you make amounts to holding something against someone, but you’re the one who feels your judgment first. The more people you place in the ‘wrong’ category, the more repugnant the world seems to you, until eventually this attitude pollutes your entire outlook on life. Or, you could maintain a healthy sense of discernment, while allowing differences of opinion to just be. Lighter…

And sweeter.

Steve and Jarl

You know good advice when you hear it because you already possess the wisdom you seek out there. But how do you make what you already know a bigger part of your everyday life? Practice remembering. Every time you feel discomfort or sadness, remind yourself that life can only unfold as it does; your interpretation affects how you feel; now is the only time you can enjoy life, and; no matter how bad things seem, this too shall pass. Reminding yourself of your innate wisdom regularly turns those occasional moments of contentment into…

A whole life.

Steve and Jarl

Difficult relationships can teach you valuable lessons. If you use them to evolve your self-awareness, they show you the importance of not taking things personally and being tolerant. The more self-loving you are, the less you’ll react to what appear to be personal attacks. You’ll understand that everyone is just doing what they can in each moment. Loving yourself means trying to communicate your feelings with kindness. Tolerance and understanding can work wonders. Expect the highest purpose and then…

Let go of the outcome.

Steve and Jarl

Everything you’ve experienced in life influences the way you deal with what happens next. Each action and reaction is a by-product of how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally. Even though you recognize this truth in a thoughtful moment, you may still condemn people (yourself included) when certain behavior doesn’t live up to your expectations. It’s much easier for everyone to understand their role and responsibility in a situation when blame and shame aren’t part of the equation. Accept what happens as inevitable, set boundaries and insist on accountability, but…

Never shame.

Steve and Jarl
