Imagine playing a game where you had no idea what the rules are, or how to play. It would be frustrating… people would be telling you to GO FISH… or they may say KING ME and you’d be sitting there like… wtf?
When we are unaware of how to play, we think things are happening “to us” and many times we then stay in a disempowered state. The purpose of the game is to play and enjoy and in a similar way, life is like that too. One of the rules of this game is that “what happens” is not what matters… instead it is about how we RESPOND to what happens.
It is the state of being we remain in knowing we can CHOOSE the meanings we give to things in life. Another rule is that what we put out, is what we get back. When we understand this, we then see that if we put out negative energy, it comes back and if we don’t choose to experience that, we can change our perspective. Another rule is that there is a correlation between what we think and feel, to what we experience.
This is perhaps one of the most liberating ideas we can have in the game of life. At this point we then can direct our thoughts in the direction we want. The truth is, most of the rules we set up in life are self imposed… We have a “rule” in our mind about what it takes for us to be happy… and then we WAIT till those conditions are met and if they are, we then UP the ante. However we can change the rules... and when we do, everything changes.
The rules we set up, are the beliefs we have about how life works. These beliefs direct our life whether we are aware of it or not. Challenge is, most of our beliefs we attained at a young age from our environment. We set up the game and AREN’T even aware of the rules we set up. The key is becoming aware of the rules we set up. That is 90 percent of the work. When we become aware of it, we then see it as outdated and can let it go.
We will then see it is not about winning, it is about enjoying the ride. The irony is the more you enjoy it, the more favorable cards fall into your lap. The more you yell “UNO” and the more you pass GO AND collect 200 dollars 🤑 ...
It definitely can be. Sympathizing, feeling, and thinking of others without real regard for how it makes you feel and without setting any boundaries, is a way to feel really badly, really quickly. ❤️❤️ We have a friend who is a single mom of two beautiful children. She went on a date with a guy that kept making her feel undervalued at every turn. But because she knew he was struggling in some areas of his life, she kept giving him so much compassion that she realized she was compromising her own self-worth, dignity and value in the process. Remember to empathize with yourself first. Strong boundaries keep us healthy.

A thief steals in darkness with the awareness of fear being caught.
When one gets away from an evil deed, one's tendency of repeating it is high.
For every gets away become a habit, they become more courageous till it numbs their senses.
Every evil act is negativity added in one's life & Nature has it's own power in balancing the law; it just returns one with negative forces.
A papaya seed shall never grows a durian tree. This is the Truth of Life.
Denial of one's evil act is simply taking a delicious meal with poison, waiting to take effect.
Humans' deeds, Heaven watches.
Nothing can get away from the power of a black hole. Not even light.
There’s no reason to go through
life thoughtlessly, to let accidents
shape us. In life, it is we who
select, what we will become,
by the notions we perform.

A day late, but it’s here. I did a study of Claude Monet, Nympheas from a recent visit to @lacma. Did you know that Monet painted over 250 water lily paintings? That’s no accident.
Today’s date coming at you next.
