Lol Mark...isn't it funny how things work the way they do. Sometimes on this page i get to do and say all the things I want and then at other times the web gremlins seem to be conspiring against me too....and yes, it's a wonderful way to learn not to be attached to the outcome :) Glad to see that you were able to post

Sorry to hear about your relative. Maybe both of you could benefit by reading "You can heal your life"by Louse L. Hay and even better "The body mind workbook" by Debbie Shapiro. They do a really great job of explaining why physical things happen to us and the second book takes a much more detailed and scientific approach ( which really appeals to my left brain thinking :P) Keep your feet on the path and definitely try some meditation, I'm sure it will help you find the answers you are seeking. Thanks so much for sharing with all of us.

Hey there John, It's nice to know that I'm not the only one that feels a little out of sync? lol...when I miss the reading and commenting on the daily notes. It really is a wonderful community here with lots of great ideas and support, and for me , its the only place where I seem to be able to find like minded people. Welcome back!

I have never tried holosync, but I am currently using brainwave technology in some of the guided meditation practices that I use. I have to say that if you have a hard time meditating then you should definately look into such a thing. You needn't spend any money on it as there are free videos on youtube, but I highly recommend that you check it out. I was never able to really meditate, or to quite my mind for any extended period of time until I started using this technology. What a difference it makes. To be able to lie or sit there and feel focused gave me the ability to make meditation a daily practice, something that I could actually believe would work for me, whereas without the brain waves being added in, I couldn't really seem to convince myself to make it a regular practice.
I find that I really identify with the map of reality and personal threshold ideas. Its like the happiness set point and internal thermostat. Mine used to be so low, VERY low actually and everything stressed me out. I have been learning to raise it, but I also realize that I have been expecting to run a marathon before I even learned to run around the block...lol, so I think that I will start out with some stretches (like this challenge) and save the marathon for after I can run around the block a few times :P OK peeps, I don't seem to have much say today, but once again I will say that if you have, or are having trouble meditating, definitely look into brain wave technologies, whether it be holosync or some other way. It made all the difference for me.

I think it's great to see all of us, taking different, yet very similar ideas from all these notes. Yes fear plays a large role in many of our lives and actions, and becoming aware of that fear and choosing to act anyway, is what makes the difference, ALL the difference. Perhaps it was in another Deepak book, but somewhere I read that there are no such things as coincidence, and when we start to pay attention and ask about the underlying theme of the synchronistic events in our lives, that magic will start to happen. Thanks for sharing Peter.

Survival os a really poor place to be living and acting from...I know this from first hand, repeated experince. Life was meant to thrive, not just survive, and when we find ourselves with opportunities to move into thriving we must grab them with both hands and relentlessly follow through. How difficult that can be at times. To quote the Grateful Dead once more, "All good things in all good time" :)

Lol...I love that..."through trial and terror". What a great way to phrase it. When we choose to ignore that small voice we often become very dissatisfied at best, and held in fear at its worse. And it's very true that the Universe is conspiring for us all. Thanks for sharing Mark.

Let me start off by saying that I love this book. I bought it a couple of years ago, and it was one of those books that I seemed to have the hardest time finishing...lol. I had to start it at least 4-5 times before I was able to read it in its entirety, but it was worth it. I have always really harmonized with Deepak Chopra. I love the way he blends eastern philosophy with western science and medicine. I highly recommend reading this book.
The issue of fear keeps repeating itself through all of the notes we have been going over, and for me at least, they really stand out because fear plays such a prominent role in my psyche, and I struggle to move and breath through it on a daily basis. Fear is such a limiting belief, and for me, it doesn't really matter where it came from or how I acquired it. All that really matters is that I learn how to use it to propel me forward. I have even found the fear trying to stop me from coming here on a daily basis although it's good at disguising itself as many other things, when I look into the core of my issues, I always find fear. And, like in previous works, I find that I am just as, if not more afraid of, what I might become as I am for what I already do. Taking time every day to reconnect with my higher self, with the good I want to see and be in the world, helps to push past the fear, to step into the unknown, to embrace myself as creator of all that I see.
It's also very true that fear distorts our perceptions. When fear is main modus operandus, then everything seems impossible, to hard to even attempt, fear works to keep us complacent, stagnant, and it truly is the mind killer, as well as the dream queller.
What's the best way to find something that's lost? Quit looking for it...lol...seems that's the best way to success and happiness as well. To me, it simply means that when you are caught up in looking for something, you keep looking where you think it should be and may be overlooking the places that it actually exists. Also, when you are so intent on finding something, on searching for it, you create an attachment to finding it. Attachments to outcomes always seem to get in the way, and when we can let them go, then the Universe has a miraculous way of putting the very thing we were looking for right in front of us.
I am so grateful to be in on this challenge, to BE challenged, to feel my mind and consciousness expanding at a rate that is dizzying, and feels unrelenting. Happy Wednesday all.

On Friday, I checked several times and never saw the comment board, so I guess it was the Universe's way of giving me some solitary time, lol. Anyway, I'm glad to see everything up and running today. When I saw the title of todays book, I almost laughed. Fear has been rearing its ugly head for me lately, and I have been doing my best to try and breath through it, to use it as a guide to where I need to go, but may not want to.
I really like the idea that doing anything different has the ability to interrupt our old habits. Often, for me, I think I have to do something radical, or find the opposite of what I'm trying to change in order to change the habit. It's refreshing to hear that even just shaking your booty can help you let go of the old. (shake, shake, twist n twirl :P)
Gratitude, as many others have mentioned, is a great way to "incline our minds to joy". It's difficult, if not impossible, to feel fear, anger, or even doubt when we are being grateful. Sometimes, when I start looking for things to be grateful for, I have to start with the smallest, most obvious. The air I breathe, the food in my belly, the water I drink, and as I persevere, my list begins to grow, and eventually, I even find myself being grateful for what I consider to be the trying issues in my life. If everyone isn't doing this gratitude practice every day, then I encourage them to do so, it makes a world of difference.
“By becoming intimate with how we close down and how we open up, we awaken our unlimited potential.” What a great quote, by becoming aware of brings us down as well as what lifts us up, we can surely change our perceptions to help us be more joyful, to exist on a higher vibrational plane.
Yes, it is a reoccurring theme that we need to ACT, now instead of later, in the moment, in the real world, not just in our minds and from the armchair. I have began to become more and more aware of this over the last few weeks. I often find myself in the state of inaction, and the more I find myself there, the more uncomfortable and dissatisfied I become. Inaction, procrastination, whatever you want to call it, is one of my biggest hurdles to overcome. Going through this challenge, and having all of you here with me, has been giving me more tools to deal with it, and more awareness to see how not only does it not serve the things that I want to accomplish or be, but is actively working against those ideals. I am grateful to all of you, to Brain and Vishen, and this challenge which I committed myself to. Time to got up and dance, dance, dance!
