Excellent Explanation of Human Emotions

Our deepest beliefs, immediate actions and responses towards events are deeply affected by our emotions. Events happening to us also to reveal our emotions too.

Share Your Dreams! Let Your Talents Shine!

Life is an on-going, never ending process of learning and discovering who you really are and constantly re-creating yourself to fulfill your highest good. People may tell you what you have to do or be to be able to accepted by society, but it’s only because they have not yet understand that societal and cultural conditioning is only an illusion and can be challenged and changed and they have not tasted the true joy and excitement by following their inspiration and recognizing how powewrful they truly are. Pay attention to your passions and your desires because they are your heart’s calling. They are the doorways for you to truly experience yourself and share your joy and love with others as you progress on this amazing path. Pay attention to your frustrations and fears as well because there are important lessons you need to be able to further progress. Don’t be afraid of your fears and frustrations. “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure that you seek” — Joseph Campbell

Meditaion is a great way to clear your mind and really give time to yourself. As you meditate, open your heart, breathe deeply into your diaphragm and let go of all the tension in your body. See and feel yourslef connect with the divine source and let yourself progress to be an unique expression of that divine source.  Allow all your attention and intention to go to progressing on the path that you choose. It doesn’t matter what other people say or think. It only matters if you are really being true to yourself and if you are truly happy about what you are doing.

What Bruce Lee Has Taught Us

The core meaning of being like water is to be non-resistant to life. Let go of your control and defense. Open your heart and start to feel how your perception creates different emotions and various physical response in your body. Challenges are not something outside of you that are beyond your manage. They are essenital part of your life for you to grow. But how smooth and quickly you grow largely depend on your attidude and your perception.  You can struggle and fight life by holding your grudges or fear or you can go with the flow, let life show you what it wants you to learn, be humble about the process, take opportunities as they comes and create opportunities when you are inspired. Being non-resistant is also a grounding process because you have to get out of your analytical and judgemental mind, stay in your body in order to really feel life and feel yourself. So “Be like water, my friends.”
