Why I Choose to Not Connect to Negativity
I had been wondering if there was a writer's community that discusses only spiritual and motivational topics, and I found a social network called Gaia, which so far seems like a great place for those of us who enjoy writing about spiritual topics and being focused on possibility living. I joined immediately and have started to make friends with kindred spirits, much like in Hubpages.
I do not totally isolate myself from the realities of the world, I am a concious person, and try to help when I can, but I admit, I hardly watch the news, and prefer to be involved with a creative project, a good book or visit my favorite writers in hubpages when time permits.
I try not to dance the dance of fear because instead of building me up, it brings negativity into my space and into the world. I figure, if am doing well, I will in turn help others or create opportunity, and I can only do this by being true to myself, to my spiritual and psychological philosophy even if it makes me less than popular.

My approach to life for the most part even when "tested," has been:
We live in a world of duality, and because of this, we will always experience cycles of growth, and others where life slows down and gives us challenges.
It is not the challenge that really matters, it is how we deal with it; how we perceive it; how attached we are to wanting things to be a certain way; it is this attachment which causes suffering.
As example, when I accepted both in my mind and heart that I was no longer employable in the corporate world due to the economy in the 9/11 aftermath in New York and other factors, I felt a burden lift, and doors started to open and I found alternate ways of earning my living.
This release of attachment led to my state of surrender and acceptance. When I accepted that some situations cannot be changed, but I could create new ones to replace them, I could go on living, much the wiser, while I did what needed to be done, which often involved asking for help. I learned out of this experience that spinning downwards into fear and drama only complicates a situation, and its not really needed. It brings us out of our balance, and clouds judgment.
The Best Year of Our Lives!
If you are a business owner today, I have a few thoughts for you
DON’T READ THE NEWSPAPERS AND DON’T WATCH THE NEWS.
It’s based on Fear. It’s based on Economical manipulation. It’s based on something that, if you’re receiving this email, isn’t something that you probably want in your life.
Run your business based on what you know. Based on the light and the Truth. Always. Shape up. Sure, everyone is influenced by what goes on around them, but not EVERYONE’s business rises and falls based on the mass consciousness of fear and of failing materialism.
Watch where you come from. Pretend you’re abundant. Pretend your business is getting ready to take the next big leap into the best phase it’s ever been in. Playfully act as though you’re above anything that could possibly bring you down.
If you provide a service, make sure it truly Serves.
If you sell a product, make sure it produces something good for the one who purchases it.
If you offer ideas, consulting or counseling, make sure you’re doing what I’m doing right now – encourage those around you to reach for the stars. The light. The knowing. The difference. The difference, that’s it. What’s different about how YOU run YOUR business?
As conscious beings, light-workers, healers, Age of Aquarius business owners, during this great Shift, if we don’t stand in the light and shine forth while the darkness around us is being exclaimed from the rooftops, then who will? Will we join them and wait for things to change? Or will we excel. Climb higher. Rise Above?
Reach for the stars, now, especially. They’re brighter than ever. And universal Abundance is not limited to a fear driven newscast or muted by the grip of a depressive economical outcry.
Rise Above. Rise Above. It’s the best time to be there.” PP
It's predictable how easy it is for humans to revert back to our fearful ways; it is for this reason, I like to keep inspired and remind myself that the universe's bounty is available for all us, not always in terms of material wealth but with inner wealth, ie; peace, gratitude, humor, love, inspiration, which creates an openness in seeing that everyday can be a source of wonder. Many people live this way, some quietly and others as well known teachers and entertainers, and they too had their challenges in the past.
On the left side capsule below the sunny photo, is a blog entry "The Best Years of Our Lives!" by an artist in Gaia, that speaks eloquently on the importance of not connecting to the mass consciousness of fear, and shining our light and reaching for the stars!
I choose this path, the path of shining light, living my Truth, and dispersing the shadows of fear.
It's the most loving contribution I can make to myself and to the pool of consciousness.
