An Excerpt from
Goals...The 10 Rules for Achieving Success
by Gary Ryan Blair

Success is the intentional, pre-meditated use of choice and decision. Unless you choose-with certainty-what it is you want, you accept table scraps by default!

The world is plump with opportunity. With boldness and conviction, stick a fork into the goals you want by being decisive.

You are born with great capabilities, but you will not achieve your potential until you call upon yourself to fulfill it. You will rise to the occasion when it presents itself; yet, to assure self-fulfillment, you must provide occasions to rise to. Clearly defined goals allow you to travel toward another horizon that represents the end of one experience and the transition to a new and better existence. The objective is to choose the right goals, and then to create the necessary causes-the effects will follow!

The difference between what one person and another achieves depends more on goal choices than on abilities.

The profound differences between successful people and others are the goals they choose to pursue. Individuals with similar talents, intelligence, and abilities will achieve different results because they select and pursue different goals.

Each decision affects what you become. We form our decisions and our decisions form us.

There is no escaping this; the smallest choices are important because-over time-their cumulative effect is enormous.

Never overlook the obvious: The nature and direction of your life change the instant you decide what goals you want to pursue.

Once you make a decision you start down a path to a new destination. At the moment the decision is made, your decision to pursue a goal alters what you are becoming. A single choice can alter your life, your destiny, your legacy.

Think about it-your goal decisions represent and express your individuality. You seal your fate with the choices you make.

You define yourself by your decisions.

Your dialog with success is ultimately a solo one. Decisions and goals made must be your own if you are to call your life a success.

Always establish the best goals you can. Goals are the seeds of success-you become only what you plant. The quality of your harvest is a direct reflection of the quality of your seeds...your decisions!

Indecision is the big eraser of opportunity and potential. Risks and costs accompany every decision; however, the price of decision is far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction. When it comes to decisiveness, squatters have no rights.

Everyone has an official wish list of things they think are "reasonable." What about the unofficial wish list? The one that common sense tells you to ignore? The list that exists deep in your mind, the list that keeps you up at night, the that makes your toes wiggle when you think of it? Why not choose that list for a change?

How long have you dreamed of being, having, and doing what you really want? Think big, as when it comes to your goals, the size of your ambition does matter.

A decision to lose weight and keep it off must be remade every time you feel hungry.

A decision is never made only once.

On Becoming Empathic

By Bing, 2010-05-12

On Becoming Empathic

When we become empathic we are graduating beyond the separateness of present society to the next level of enlightment. We have come to the realization, be it through our empathic experiences and/or by introspection, that we are all one; that there is no us and them there is only us. We are now more in touch with our feelings and we feel the world through our developing higher senses. There is no need for us to think things through when we meet people as we know instinctively as plain as the nose on your face what is real and right. Sometimes we even deny our sense of feeling and go back to doubting our abilities. You would not doubt that you were seeing the color yellow and say well it cant be yellow, it must be blue, and so it should be with your empathic senses. As empaths we must not let our mind dictate what is real as this denies our sense of feeling. Analyzing ever thought and action is what holds us back from becoming who we feel we are. We must become more out of our minds and then we can become more empathic. We must learn to trust our feelings as this is closer to source energy and who we truly are as spiritual beings.

As empaths we feel the universe and become one with it. For too long we have lived a life separate from each other. We have actually been crippled by our inability to feel each other. This has led to great misunderstandings and fear, which in turn that has filled much of the history of mankind with wars and deceptions brought on by those who misled us for their own personal physical betterment. This era is now coming to a close. We are entering a new level of human evolution with the raising of our collective consciousness. We are passing from St. Thomas Aquaniuss Age of Faith and Rene Descartes Age of Reason to the new Age of Empathy. We are progressing from I think, therefore, I am to I feel, therefore, I am.

To be empathic is to be open to the world, to seek others out. When we do so we become more communal, trusting and altruistic. We cannot be lied to or deceived as we know what is real and what the deception is. We no longer live the falsehoods of others, but know our own truths. It is to celebrate a more intimate, robust realization of the layers of ourselves. We are able to feel the truth. We can see what is behind the curtain. We are now no longer slaves to fear. A life lived in fear, a fear of Them, a fear of death , fear of God, fear of running out of time, fear of being inefficient, fear of not being perfect, is to live a life of looking over your shoulder; of always being on the run. A life lived in fear is a life less lived.

When empaths are around such people it is like you can taste the adrenalin. Although the setting may look quite serene the air is full of intense stiffness and guardedness. You can feel it! It is difficult for empaths to be around such a setting or individuals. They can quite literally drain the life out of you.

As empaths we freely choose a life of higher consciousness and by doing so openly recognize our collective human frailties. Thus, we connect to the oneness of us all and airs of superiority and inferiority fade away leaving only our connective identity.

It is an interesting phenomenon that as we become more empathic and enlightened our fear of death withers as does our interest in seeking the solace of earthly utopias. As more Indigo and Crystal people emerge, being more empathic and spiritual by nature, they will be noticeably less interested in institutionalized separations such as religions, nationalism, and ethnicity and have a greater enthusiasm of celebrating our collective oneness. Institutionalized organizations all have the same structural basis such as rigidity of beliefs, fear of death and outsiders, and obedience to the mindset of the leadership. Failure to follow the core beliefs of the group threatens the free thinker with expulsion and exclusion. This mindset of singular salvation through the groups vision further exacerbates the continuance of the us and them mindset.

As a person becomes more empathic you will come to believe that the tribal fixations of these types of organizations are regressive in their fear based beliefs and are an anathema to oneness with everyone. Becoming empathic requires the development of the ability to intimately engage with others, yet retaining a measure of detachment so that we do not become overwhelmed by others. It is a fine balancing act of letting in the emotions of others without becoming overwhelmed and losing your own identity. It is about developing an ability to turn down the "receive" and balance the "send". By developing empathy to others you will also develop a strong sense of self and personal identity. This will also lead to a stronger connection with your ability to feel. As you become more enlightened and empathic you will come to a point in your development where you will break free of fear based delusional thinking, and like a chick breaking through an egg shell, discover the beauty in the oneness of us all. Like Columbuss sailors you will discover that your betters were wrong. To believe in your feelings and let go of delusional indoctrination can be a hard step to take. It requires a leap of faith and a singular belief in oneself. It is to let go of the need for middlemen in your relationship with the rest of creation and to believe in what you feel and know is real.

This raised level of consciousness is a result of mindfulness, reflection, introspection, overcoming life crises, hardships, and personal demons; as well as interaction with others. When you take that step outside of fear based thinking you begin a journey down the path to transcendent spirituality. It can be scary and yet extremely liberating. It will feel as if you have shaken off a layer of thick gel and are beginning to walk free for the first time in your life. You will experience a lightness of spirit and courage of self that you have never felt before. You will feel free! There will be no going back once you have taken this step. It is to step out of the nest and spread your wings in flight. Why walk when you can fly?!! No one can now own you as you have become your own person. You will be separate in body, but one in spirit with all that is. You will walk in Light and Love.

Grandma's Hands

By Bing, 2010-05-06


Grandma, some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the patio bench. She didn't move, just sat with her head down staring at her hands.

When I sat down beside her she didn't acknowledge my presence and the longer I sat I wondered if she was OK

Finally, not really wanting to disturb her but wanting to check on her at the same time, I asked her if she was OK. She raised her head and looked at me and smiled. "Yes, I'm fine, thank you for asking," she said in a clear voice strong.

"I didn't mean to disturb you, grandma, but you were just sitting here staring at your hands and I wanted to make sure you were OK."? I explained to her.

"Have you ever looked at your hands," she asked. "I mean really looked at your hands"?

I slowly opened my hands and stared down at them. I turned them over, palms up and then palms down. No, I guess I had never really looked at my hands as I tried to figure out the point she was making.

Grandma smiled and related this story:

"Stop and think for a moment about the hands you have, how they have served you well throughout your years. These hands, though wrinkled shriveled and weak have been the tools I have used all my life to reach out and grab and embrace life."

"They braced and caught my fall when as a toddler I crashed upon the floor."

"They put food in my mouth and clothes on my back. As a child, my mother taught me to fold them in prayer. They tied my shoes and pulled on my boots. They held my husband and wiped my tears when he went off to war."

"They have been dirty, scraped and raw, swollen and bent. They were uneasy and clumsy when I tried to hold my newborn son. Decorated with my wedding band they showed the world that I was married and loved someone special."

"They wrote my letters to him and trembled and shook when I buried my parents and spouse."

"They have held my children and grandchildren, consoled neighbors, and shook in fists of anger when I didn't understand."

"They have covered my face, combed my hair, and washed and cleansed the rest of my body. They have been sticky and wet, bent and broken, dried and raw. And to this day when not much of anything else of me works real well these hands hold me up, lay me down, and again continue to fold in prayer."

"These hands are the mark of where I've been and the ruggedness of life."

"But more importantly it will be these hands that God will reach out and take when he leads me home. And with my hands He will lift me to His side and there I will use these hands to touch the face of Christ."

I will never look at my hands the same again. But I remember God reached out and took my grandma's hands and led her home.

When my hands are hurt or sore or when I stroke the face of my children and husband I think of grandma. I know she has been stroked and caressed and held by the hands of God.

I, too, want to touch the face of God and feel His hands upon my face.

When you receive this, say a prayer for the person who sent it to you, and watch God's answer to prayer work in your life. Let's continue praying for one another.

Passing this on to anyone you consider a friend will bless you both.

Passing this on to one not yet considered a friend is something Christ would do.

The Optomist's Creed

By Bing, 2010-03-08

The following was written by Christian D. Larson in 1912

The Optimists Creed

I Promise Myself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to everyone that I meet

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile

in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism

come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best and to expect only

the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about

my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and to press on to the

greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and to give a smile

to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to

criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,

and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud

words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, as long as I am true

to the best that is in me.

Christian D. Larson 1912

Stress and Staying Calm

By Bing, 2010-03-06


As Empaths we not only have to deal with our own little challenges, we sometimes are handed the challenges of others through our abilities. Therefore I put together this blog with tips I have received from others, and some of my own insights, in order to add some coping tips for my fellow empaths. Please feel free to share them with everyone.

A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?" The answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.

The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it."

If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem.

If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm.

If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance.

In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

He continued..."and that's the way it is with stress management. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on."

"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden."

"So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Don't carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow. Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can."

So, my friend put down anything that may be a burden to you right now. Don't pick it up again until after you've rested a while.

Here are some great ways of dealing with the burdens of life:

* Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.

* Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

* Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

*If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

* It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply being kind to others.

* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

* Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

* The second mouse gets the cheese.

* When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

* Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

* You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

* Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

*A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.


* We could learn a lot from crayons... Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today.

To You From God

By Bing, 2010-03-02

To A Beautiful Person

From God

If I had a refrigerator,

Your picture would be on it.

If I had a wallet,

Your photo would be in it.

I send you flowers every spring.

I send you a sunrise every morning.

Whenever you want to talk, I listen.

I can live anywhere in the universe,

But I chose your heart.

Face it, I am crazy about you.

I didn't promise days without pain,

Laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain.

But I did promise strength for the day,

Comfort for the tears and light for the way.

Know that you are loved beyond your

imagination and that I am with you always.

When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that biscuit and eat every bite! When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he said: "Honey, I love burned biscuits." Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides - a little burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!"

You know, life is full of imperfect things.....and imperfect people. I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. What I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each others faults, and choosing to celebrate each others differences, is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship and that's my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker! We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship! "Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket, keep it in your own." God Bless You..... Now, and Always....So Please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burnt one will do just fine.!.!.!.! And PLEASE pass this along to someone who has enriched your life... I just did to my friends here at the Empath Community.

Throw some love into the wind
