60+ years ago, this was how many of us overcame racism in school and in the workplace. Stand up and be proud of who you are. Bahala na!
I am happy. I am fulfilled. I am joyous. I am peaceful. I am in harmony with all. I am filled with the spirit of love and compassion.
Read those words again.

The purpose of life, including our human life, is the evolution of consciousness. The aim of our human existence is to become as fully human as possible, to realise or make real the full potential inherent in the human condition. This applies to all levels of being human, to the biological, the emotional as well as the mental level.
Instead of seeing yourself as just a personality with a mind and a body, imagine yourself as part of an individualised life-stream that flows eternally towards increasingly higher levels of consciousness ~

yanta santaṃ padaṃ abhisamecca:
Sakko ujū ca suhujū ca,
sūvaco cassa mudu anatimānī,
santussako ca subharo ca,
appakicco ca sallahukavutti,
santindriyo ca nipako ca,
Na ca khuddamācare kiñci
yena viññū pare upavadeyyuṃ.
This is to be done by one skilled in aims
who wants to break through to the state of peace:
Be capable, upright, & straightforward,
easy to instruct, gentle, & not conceited,
content & easy to support,
with few duties, living lightly,
with peaceful faculties, masterful,
modest, & no greed for supporters.
Do not do the slightest thing
that the wise would later censure.
Sutta Nipāta 1.143, 1.144, 1.145
Translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
Constant judging is exhausting. As I let go the need to judge, I let go the need of others telling me what I should or shouldn’t do, and what I should or shouldn’t be.
Perception is awareness shaped by belief. Beliefs control perception. Rewrite beliefs and you rewrite perception. Rewrite perception and you rewrite genes and behavior. I am free to change how I respond to the world … so as I change how I see the world, I change my genetic expression. We are not victims of our genes: we are masters of our genetics.— Bruce Lipton, M.D.

Reframing negative thoughts into positive thoughts, over time changes the way I think. My outward circumstances change, too. As I experience more optimism, I attract greater prosperity and abundance into my life.
Intention aligns me to the Creative Force that draws from me, like water from a well, the depths of self expression.
Whenever we notice the presence of our awareness – that thing inside that is having an experience right now – we are touching our enlightenment. Self-recognition is the starting place of enlightenment, of freedom.
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the juice of my morning green smoothie that
Thoughts acquire speed,
My pineal gland acquires Sight,
The Sight becomes my Portal.
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
Gates open wide. Boat launched ocean. Star guides boat. Star reflects fish in ocean. Fisherman sails. Fishing of man.
The life of an adept moves like a boat in a river. The boat moves as per the currents of the river. The adept moves as per the currents of the time. The river joins the ocean; likewise, the adept’s life joins the greater life. When the river joins the ocean, it opens wide forming deltas. Also, the life of an adept grows far wider before joining the great life. He becomes a planetary worker influencing many lives in all parts of the globe. His life becomes unlimited. His travel also becomes eternal and unlimited. The distant stars form the guide. The Great Bear, the Pleiades and Sirius keep guiding the adept. The stars are reflected on Earth as the Hierarchy. The Hierarchy of the Masters of Wisdom keeps guiding. The hunter turned king. The king turned saint. The saint joins the Hierarchy. Hereafter, he has only one work. It is fishing the souls. He sails in life and keeps fishing the souls to restore them to the path. The saint becomes the fisherman. He is a fisher of men.
I breathe in Aloha and I breathe out Aloha. I stay focused on ALOHA, and deepen ever more into Aloha for Aloha is all there is.
O My Guardian Angel,
by Heaven’s Strength and Power, bring me good luck every day of my life;
by Heaven’s Strength and Power, bring abundance and Wealth into my life;
by Heaven’s Strength and Power, let Love shine in my life;
by Heaven’s Strength and Power, grant me the powers of the mind to understand the great mysteries of the universe, to allow me to discover the thoughts of others, and to have them act for me;
by Heaven’s Strength and Power, grant me Divine Strength and Energy, and ensure that they rule supreme over my life;
by Heaven’s Strength and Power, reveal to me the impenetrable paths of the future, and guide me on the path to Happiness; and
by Heaven’s Strength and Power, ensure that all the beautiful things I wish for come true in my life.
And as I will it, so shall it BE.
When warmth, love and compassion springs from a place of unbounded energy and intelligence, then it is intense and authentic.
I am connected to something far greater when I reside in stillness and in silence.
The Universe welcomes and embraces me.
I draw in a deep breath, and release it with a long sigh – aah – all tension leaving my body, feeling my body softening and relaxing.
Forgiving myself, or another, the survival center of my brain stops releasing stressful chemicals in my body. I can now let go the past, and with it anger, guilt, and sadness. I can live more fully in the richness of the expression of life.
As I witness my thoughts, I realize that my mind is never my authority. There is another place inside me that I can always trust, where I make decisions that are correct for me.
It is through your personal work that you will advance; and everything that you can become, you will become through your own patience and perseverance.
As an emotion arises, I fully embrace it until it naturally subsides, without me adding my story and drama to it.
An emotion manifests simply as a release of chemicals in my body, I can resist the flow and contract against the emotion, or I can embrace the flow and accept and allow what is. In doing so, I become at ease in my mind, and in my body.
In stillness and in silence, I listen to the whisper of my soul that guides me to express the fullness of my being.
We Are Family!
“In silence, I recognize the next perfect note that plays in the magnificent symphony of Consciousness.”
