Yet, you forget this divine fact every day.

We all come from the same creator. You are as deserving, special and entitled to the good things in the world as anyone else. It is often the mind poison we feed ourselves that block the miracles that come our way and stop us receiving what is rightfully ours.

Fortunately, most of us don't suffer from an incurable disease and simply have to modify our attitudes to overcome setbacks. In our daily lives, the big question is: What should I accept and what can or should I choose to change?

Is Your Life Coach Conscious or Unconscious?

We can keep complaining about the rain or accept that it's raining, find an umbrella and dance in the cleansing fall. We get to choose. We are choice-making beings. No one can ever take that away from us -- not even ourselves. We just need a little reminder now and then.

Why There's Absolutely Nothing Wrong With Celibacy

Lori Lothian | Posted 07.06.2014 | Fifty
Lori Lothian

Despite the societal thrust to make sure we are all having a rip-roaring sex life, sex and emotional well-being can be uncoupled -- they are not necessarily linked, as the cultural imperative would have us believe. Simply, the culture reveres sex and orgasms as if these two "gods" must be worshipped. What about the celebration of celibacy as an equally healthy option? I'd love to see sex therapy include celibacy on the menu of choices for a couple instead of diagnosing a non-sexually active couple as needing a remedy.

Dale Hansen | Posted 06.30.2014 | Politics
Dale Hansen

Republican-led legislatures across the nation are making controversial changes to many laws under the guise of "choice." Charter schools give families a "choice" of where to send their children.

Do You Really Know How Powerful Your Intentions Are?

Dennis Merritt Jones | Posted 05.26.2014 | GPS for the Soul
Dennis Merritt Jones

Too often, in the busyness of our lives, our intentions are semi-unconscious, meaning they slip unnoticed directly through to the reactive habit-mind, circumventing the deeper contemplative self. As a result, we may make choices which spawn consequences that we may not anticipate.
