Worms Love Compassion
by Tamara Gerlach
It was still raining a little as I twisted and tip-toed down the path. The night before a huge storm had come through and there were literally hundreds of earthworms along the path this morning.
As I danced around these squirming beings, I noticed that others had mindlessly trampled them on their way to something that must have been much more important than the life of an earthworm.
And then, up ahead, I saw two girls carefully picking up one worm at a time and placing them into the grass on either side of the path.
First, I was impressed that girls were picking up worms, but mostly I was impressed by their compassion. They were not only concerned that THEY were not stepping on the worms, but they were concerned for others with lower awareness would unknowingly kill and create bad karma for themselves. And I have no doubt that every earthworm they saved was eternally grateful!
Their kindness made a difference.
When I see such beauty and compassion, it always inspires and invites me to look inside for ways that I could cultivate more beauty and compassion in my life and the lives of people around me. Something to think about today…and every day.
Greed is Great
by Jeanna Gabellini
Once upon a time I thought the only way to work my way into heaven was to be kind at all times, always be giving and to sin as little as possible. I’ve changed my perspective drastically over the years, and find it oh-so fun and thrilling.
First of all, I know that if I do what’s in my best interest, I’ll always do the right thing. It’s when I go against my own values or desires that my life gets messed up. And when my life feels bad, everyone who interacts with me is impacted. I see this to be true for others too … when they follow their own guidance and bliss the world around them benefits.
So let’s talk about greed.
Definition of greed on the web:
excessive desire to acquire or possess more (especially more material wealth) than one needs or deserves.
Oh, please! Can we ditch the old school thinking that does not serve us at all?! I don’t need two servings of dessert but if it’s good, I’m having more. Is that greedy? No! I know what I enjoy. And who decides if I deserve it or not? Oh, I know some of you think that if you exercised and ate “good” all week then you deserve it. BAH!
Everyone deserves to experience their desires. And the only way to do that is by acknowledging that you are worthy of joy. You also must be connected to your inner guidance. You never have to pay your dues or be a responsible human being in order to deserve something.
I wish more people would be greedy. I coach my clients to be more selfish. Most of them are asking for “just enough” to squeak by in the love, money and joy department. In your work or business, it’s time to be honest about what you really want. If you don’t, you begin to harbor resentment and then sabotage yourself or your company. This all happens behind the scenes, as most of you are not aware that you are consciously doing this. All you know is that life is beginning to not feel good.
I used to put my mate’s business needs before mine. I would end up getting irritated with him and my own business suffered. When I changed my ways, I began feeling the empowerment of taking my own life into my hands. My profits and level of joy soared immediately.
By the way, get greedy with your time, money, support you desire and anything else that feels good. When you serve yourself up more of what you want, you achieve bliss…which is your purpose in life. Retrain your brain that greed is not a bad word. It only looks ugly when people want to fill themselves up, and hurt others along the way, because they are so disconnected from their hearts. I’m talking about being connected and allowing in every little and big desire you want from a place of empowerment and joy.

Finally, A Weight Release Program That Works
It takes a lot of courage for you to reach out and ask for help. I know what is it like to feel there is NO way out of the proverbial maze of trying to figure out how to take care of yourself, lose weight, keep it off, know what to eat, etc.
On the flip side, I also know firsthand that there is a way out and it does not have to be painful — in fact, it could be a fun adventure…I would like to personally invite you to take action today, so that a year from now you look back with pride rather than with pain.
