I had to re-read your message before I reply. To me, to be a consistent success is not to be afraid of appearing a failure to anyone even those who you care the most. Because if you are not afraid of appearing as “an nobody” to others, they can’t criticize you or hold you in a certain light anymore. From there, you can bounce higher than you could ever imagine before. It’s kind of like jumping the obstacle pole in an Olympic game. You must first bend your knees to position yourself before jumping higher to get over the pole. How high could you jump if you stand up straight at all times? When you turn your discomfort to joy, are you asking the better questions to ensure your joyfulness? Or are you treating discomfort as joyfulness? For example, for me, when I feel humiliated or embarrassed, I observe myself as a hardcore fighter who is not afraid of experiencing obstacles and when others humiliated me, I see myself as a joker creating happiness for others to mock. Who does not like a joker? This world needs some silliness. I laugh at my own short coming too what is not to laugh? This life is just a game and it is supposed to be fun, right? When I get rejected, I observe myself as being spared from pain and suffering of unfitting positions, unfitting relationships or unfitting circumstances. When I wonder why I am still single, I come up with the reasons that it’s NOT b/c I am not beautiful, not good enough, not young enough, not bright enough, not wealthy enough, not famous enough, it is because in order for me to have the freedom I currently have to achieve what I set out to do, in order to have one marriage that lasts forever, in order to have my children born to those parents at the right time at the right place, I willingly sign a contract before my birth that I am married at a certain age to that certain person. Because only then would I have all my criteria met. I could create my opportunities to be married at any time, but would the rest of life be the way I envision them if I jump into it now, just to win, just to show? I don’t have to convince myself and there is not a person I am obligated to. When I fail to the world standard, I observe myself being infused with confidence booster because when you do not dwell in failures, you stand up and go on, regardless how small the steps are, you gain more confidence and a brighter outlook matching forward. Those who have everything and never have experienced failures cannot take failure because the initial shock is too great for them to swallow. When you have only failure (no traffic to your sites), you understand internally that you are a success because your failure leads you to look beyond the world identity and expectation. You would never look if you are a success every time. Your site does not represent you or your success. You are a success just by being you. No one can do what you do. Although the corporate world seems to constantly peach to their employees that everyone is replaceable. This is simply not true. No one is replaceable. In fact, it looks as if replacing people is not loss to an organization but successful companies do not replace their employees easily. They treat their employees with dignity and respect which means they promote their employees and honor their working relationships by giving opportunities for them to grow within or outside the organization. Why is the U.S. failing now and all the capitalist thoughts are bringing doom to corporations because U.S.’s ruthless actions against humanity are finally catching up to them. Asia is less affected because traditions, respects and hard works instead of politics are still being valued to a certain extend. Great leader aren’t obsessed with power play to put down their subordinates, instead they treat everyone like they are future leaders themselves and this is called empowerment and it’s done on a daily basis. There is an old saying, “if you believe you can, you can” this is the first step as shifting your reality! Break it all down to the bottom line, only other humans (not your site or your money or your image etc) are your collective whole. When you tell them they are replaceable, you are telling yourself you are replaceable. When you mistreat them, you mistreat yourself, when you empower them, you empower yourself! I don’t know the real cause of hardwork =/= success but I am guessing that it’s not always about hardwork. Heavy workload/hardwork leads to restrictions which leads to mood downswing/buster which leads to imbalanced and ultimately, dissatisfaction. The corporate world is dominated by slave driving hardwork that creates and feeds on nasty collective conscious of its workers. That’s why there is no success at the worker level but just more work. Success is at the executive level where even the executives of failing companies like Ford and AIG are ensured of their annual bonus for their executives who I could assure you do much less work than the worker bees at the professional level or the labor level. They play as well as work because life is not about working too hard. Playing too hard is equivalent to working too hard. Any extremity is borderline obsessiveness so indulgence would tilt the balance scale. I am suspecting that the ones who work moderately and are balanced physically reap the most in the material world on a consistent basis. That is not to say they don’t work, they just do the best they can without abusing themselves and live every moment expecting to be treated like a leader. So perhaps tweaking “tiny nothing who deserves a lot more” to “big-shot someone just deserves a lot. Period” alter your immediate reality. I am rambling on just like you. 🙂

I think I am going to check out, “The Holographic Universe” by Talbot at Barnes and Nobles when time permits. As far as “negative” comment is concerned, I still fall into that trap from time to time, especially when the ego of my earthly self is involved. Sometimes, I compare myself to other people like why aren’t they attacking the ego of others and only uses the most defeating words to describe me. Then I realize it’s all just a mental drill there is no such thing as being better or worse. I am my only creation, the moment I decide to attack of the ego of another by challenging their faith, their belief, their view and their conception of the world, I solicit a reaction. Sometimes good but most times, it’s bringing out the fear and the dejected from that person. I, to them, an image, a familiar image stored in their memories from their past. I am not real to them and they aren’t reacting to the real me, but the projected suppressed memories of a person of their past who may share similar personality and attitudes as me. The more powerful the challenge from a more powerful person, the more powerful and advance I am to that person.  In fact, they don’t see me as weak; they see me as above as and stronger than them.  Unless the person evaluating knows the whole life of everyone else involved in the matter otherwise all comparisons are just mental drills of useless efforts as one single individual could not guarantee an absolutely un-bias evaluation of a person or a situation. We have many lives and many collective experiences and even God is not able to thoroughly trace all of us through our many lives. As we know, there are different Gods, one in each universe, parallel or horizontal to the one we are in. And it is even hard to define which is real, you could only use the one that fits in the best it can to support your creations.
However the illusions that are created by the perfect princess gets married in a splendor reception and loves by the whole world is so far out of reach for me that I should release the urge to consistently compare. I could never fit into that mode even if I want all the privileges that come with it, even trying hard to pretend like one is a terrible waste of my energy. I like to challenge men and look upon them as if they are my equal and at times, my inferior. This rubs men the wrong way and sometimes caused them to lash out at me. But I see nothing wrong with being who I really am and act out accordingly to the ways I feel comfortable. And let me say men could be particularly harsh to women who act outside their submissive role. This is not so with men and men interactions. I am still seeking to create that happy medium where men could treat me without harshness or excess lustiness. Another element at play with “negative” comments, are the people who wrote negative comments are in self destructive dark gloomy mode baiting for some reactions, often negative. They always are and they want you to react to their baits and they want to win. They could always win at the argumentative level because darker force/wavelength obviously weights heavier and is harder to pull away from, which is why people are stuck in the rat race and the majority of our culture feeds predominantly on that force. But winning in the sense of winning an argument is useless. What you want to achieve in life is the ultimate joy, success and archiving goals that you set up to do before life begins while still able to enjoy the journeys along the way. Winning the goals, winning the fight and losing sight of maintaining your joy and letting negativity entered your realm is simply not going to work. Your life is about not proving you are right and they are wrong. You are always right because your reality is true and you are the magnificent being you are by just being a being.  There is nothing to prove to the world.  There is nothing that you need to do in order to call yourself a success.  That is not to say you do nothing but you do things that honor who you are and create matters that support your truth.  Everyone is right.  So are you going to make dark gloomy thoughts right or happy joyful moods right? Each reality is readily available and have manifested many times before your existence. Those “negative” comments, let me emphasized are seeking scientific proof or just plain old proof. Your life experience is unique and you are unique, only you know how life really is. Even if you attempt to prove it to another, they won’t understand it the way you do anyway because they are never you and could never be you. Logically speaking, they bear no burden of proof by challenging you, they careless, all they want is scientific proofs or proofs that satisfy them but if they are not satisfied, there is no amount of proof coming from outside of them could fill that satisfaction.  Hence, they will never be satisfied.  I find scientific proofs simply are too “one” dimensional for anyone seeking spiritual reality. I want more than “one” dimensional; one size fits all explanation for everything because I know there is more to it than what is presented. My hunger for knowledge beyond this world is not limited. I did come upon one comments that I agree wholeheartedly which is in contradiction to the theories of phase 1 and 2 game but it is based on the same fundamentals, we are each our own universe and we each play the creation game the way we want to, however, my universe through my own creation stumble upon your universe and that’s how our first interaction begins. I am not a powerless puffin although it would seem so in your own universe. We are each a powerful creator and when our world collides, the collision is caused by your creations of a certain goals as well as mine. I come along because that certain goals created by me share similar traits as those in your universe, therefore, we become co-players of the game, once the goals/mission accomplished, we depart, maybe briefly, maybe temporarily, maybe a whole life time. No one knows the duration or time line of our interactions and it could be alter any minute per each of our deliberate creations. But all these creations are done so that we are able to each advance onto the next phase of our journey, a more marvelous creation with even more creative opportunities.  Cheers to a more lovely tomorrow.

The first of the 11 Forgotten Laws is The Law of Thinking. This law relates to your power of thought. Every single thing that you use started as a thought in the mind. We started out on this planet with nothing and now we have so many things that it’s hard to believe. All of these things from cell phones to your house were first formed in someone’s mind. This teaches you that you must start to form a clear picture in your mind of the things you want.

The Law of Supply teaches us that there is an unlimited supply. Regardless of how bad the news tells you everything is, there is plenty of everything to go around. Becoming aware of this abundance is critical to your success.

The Law of Attraction probably needs the least explanation of any of these laws with its emergence in the public eye. The idea that whatever you pay attention to is what you attract is behind this law.

The Law of Receiving deals with getting you ready to receive all of the things that you want. Regardless of how hard you try to succeed, if you’re not ready to receive it, you won’t get anywhere.

The Law of Increase deals with the ability that you have to grow. Every aspect of your life can get better. Even if you think it’s pretty good already, it can continue to increase.

The Law of Compensation goes back to the age old philosophy of “you get out what you put in”. You reap what you sow. These are all ways to say the same thing. Don’t expect to succeed if you don’t put any effort in.

The Law of Non-Resistance is one of the most overlooked laws and also the most powerful. Whatever you resist persists. This means that the things that you hate grow stronger in your life. This will teach you to simply ignore the things that you don’t like.

The Law of Forgiveness teaches you how to completely release painful things from the past. If you’re constantly rehashing everything from your past, you’ll have trouble going forward.

The Law of Sacrifice teaches you that in order to gain something you must make a choice. You aren’t necessarily losing something to get something, but you are giving of yourself to improve your circumstances.

The Law of Obedience teaches you that the laws will work with you if you obey them. If you live an undisciplined life, you probably won’t succeed.

The Law of Success combines all of the previous laws and teaches you that you can succeed. Anyone from any background can succeed. Regardless of how bad you’ve had it, there is so much good that you can still do.

These 11 Forgotten Laws will help to effectively change your life. Learn more about them and start improving your life today.

People, I don’t feel apologetic that I see myself becoming an island owner of “the World.”

At the very least, I would insist on vacating Dubai and staying in that iconic Burj Al Arab at least several times in this lifetime.  People in general are always so upset at every little thing (from online discussion to stupid games and such….) I guess that is what is happening to most in this economy so it is in some ways “normal”.  I just don’t get it.  My attitude is spend all your money and don’t worry about where life takes you.  Life will take care of itself.   Remember that even little swallow is well fed and taken care of.  When you are in a “good” mood, “good” things will flourish and your problems will eventually melt away.   There is always more than “one” solution to a problem even when you are being confronted with something that is seemingly unresolvable now.   Today was a fun day.  As I was buying coffee at the Starbucks, they were offering samplers to a nice gentleman in front of me.   He asked the server if the drinks were leftover from the day before.  I could not help but giggled really hard.  He turned around and asked me if I want one of the samplers.  I said “sure” and I knew all this time, he was 1) suspicious about whether the drinks were leftover and wanted me to be a lab rat, 2) he wanted the more fancier kind even when he was nice enough to ask me to choose first and 3) he is concerned about his sugar level so he was a bit more reserved on taking that small sampler.   I chose the plain choice because I know it would make him happy having the other choice.  He kept commenting on “how he’s old and shouldn’t have too much sugar” that was funny because he told me “the java frappuccino” was really good.  I can see that he was very happy from his genuine smile.   I also feel “happy” knowing that I’ve given someone something nice for the day and swept away all that worry and suspicions.  See, small gestures could really brighten someone’s day as well as yours.

Be happy and look forward to a brighter day.   Tomorrow will be more delightful for you, I promise. 😉

"We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives."
– Ben Weininger

Creating anything new is a messy process. To create a new and better
relationship, for example, we have to uproot, disassemble, or tear
apart what we’ve had and then try to put it all together in a new way.
If we can’t deal with conflict, disorder, uncertainty, disruption, or
upset, we’ll avoid change in general, and end up stuck in a neat but
deadening rut.

Excerpt from "Manifesting Your Beloved" by Takara

Imagine for a moment what your life would be like if you had the relationship you always dreamed of. For eons you’ve searched for that special someone. What if that person really exists? What if you lived and loved with them on a daily basis?

My Beloved (also known as Twin Flame, Soul Mate, Soul Partner) and I recently celebrated our seventh anniversary. After seven years of being in the relationship that everyone on the planet seems to be looking for, I feel I’m qualified to explain it and assist others in achieving it.

So what is it? How is it different? And how can you experience it for yourself?

Drawing from my own experience, from what I’ve read about Twin Flame relationships, and from what I’ve observed and discussed with others involved in this very special relationship arrangement, I’ve discovered the following:

I’ll explain it by defining what it is not.

IT IS NOT a relationship designed to mirror your beliefs. All other relationships have that as their primary purpose. Your relationship with your parents let you learn about your relationship with God. The painful experiences you had as a child caused you to create beliefs about how life is and how people are. These beliefs are false or limiting. You are the grand creator of your life and whatever you believe becomes your reality. So you draw to yourself all sorts of relationships that prove to you that your beliefs are correct, even if you don’t remember that you hold those beliefs. We’ll save that topic for another time.

Every person I’ve ever heard of who has successfully manifested their Beloved Relationship has as their primary commitment their own personal and spiritual growth. This relationship assists in that process. True Soul Partners are never “processing” at the same time. When one person is facing their shadow (limiting beliefs, fears, and judgments), the other partner is always perfectly centered and in balance. The Beloved, or Soul Partner, holds an energetic space in which you can do your own healing. They hold this space without judgment and without trying to “fix” you. In fact, in many cases, the Partner sees or knows exactly what issue you are facing. It’s very obvious to them for many reasons. But their intuitive guidance is to say nothing. So they do not. This requires spiritual maturity since the human tendency is to try to assist others and make them feel better.

IT IS NOT a relationship that zaps your energy or requires struggle. All other relationships can become somewhat of an energetic battleground. One person feels energized while the other feels drained. Many relationships require a great deal of effort.

IT IS NOT a relationship that requires you to pretend to be something you are not or hide from your partner anything about yourself. For the first time in your life you get to actually be “real” whatever that means for you in the moment. So many people act one way with their friends and another with their partners. They never discuss certain topics because they feel they will be judged, be misunderstood, or the topic will cause uncertainty or even jealousy.

Your Beloved, or Soul Partner, is your best friend and your greatest confidant. You greatly enjoy each other’s company.

IT IS NOT a relationship based on mistrust. In fact the day my Beloved, Raven, and I got married I asked, “What will this relationship require of me?” and I pulled a dolphin card. It said “Radical Trust.” I had to laugh because that had been required of me since the day we first met.

It differs greatly from other relationships in numerous additional ways. A very noticeable difference is the number of people outside the relationship who make comments about how beautiful the relationship is. An amazing number of people tell us what a joy it is to observe the two of us interacting with each other and with our son. It’s obviously not something they see everyday.

The energy of it is also very different. It is truly a merging into oneness that continues even when we are apart. We often communicate telepathically. I have an idea about what would be wonderful for dinner. When Raven arrives home from work, that idea I had is exactly what he picked up when he was in town.

We had only been living together for about a month when we attended a workshop. The presenter, Kat Cunningham, sees the animal totems that you work with in your energy field. She looked at us in a strange way and asked if we were in partnership. When we replied yes, she laughed and said I see a wolf on one side and a coyote on the other and they keep jumping back and forth between the two of you.

I was having a portrait done by a wonderful woman who creates what she calls Soul Portraits. She draws an image of who you are at the core. The colors and images are very beautiful. I couldn’t go in person so I sent a picture. The only recent picture I had was of the three of us: my husband, my son, and myself. When we received the portrait back there was a note attached that said something like, “I could not distinguish one person’s energy from the other. You are completely blended. So this image is what is created by the three of you.” The image is a beautiful wave with turquoise and magenta and sparkles everywhere. The caption says “For Beloved Takara, Raven, and Jesse: There is great and mighty depth in your healing work, as the ocean energy surrounds you . . . however, all is firmly grounded and blended beautifully and with pure Spirit.” – Barbara Besser

Some people have misunderstood the concept of Twin Flame. They think the person will be exactly like they are – like twins. Your Beloved is your twin, just not in the way you would expect. He or she is your energetic twin. Your personalities and your interests may be quite different. My Beloved and I are exact opposites astrologically. I am Pisces. Raven is Virgo. We find humor in the differences such as I make piles and he likes a clean work surface. We also greatly appreciate the strong points offered by the other. He is good at the things I am not and vice versa. We compliment each other well in that way.

Having a relationship like this as part of your own experience requires that you focus on your desire to have it. And it requires that you heal any limiting beliefs, fears, and judgments that are preventing it.
