Love in Vain

Time heals all wounds, albeit slowly, and never quite completely. But all we can do is pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, & keep it moving. Whatever pain we feel is proportionate to the lesson learned. And if the lesson was not learned, you can be sure the experience, & it's accompanying pain will be yours again. Forgive so you may learn, and learn so that you may forgive. Your Resentments & Grudges will destroy YOU from the inside out...while the one you can't forgive or forget, has moved on, like teflon, all the pain & anger you directed at him (or her) slid right off & ricocheted back to you. Let it you can break the cycle and embrace a new day. Remember, tis better to have loved & lost than never to have loved at all. Love may bring pain, but never is Love in Vain. - © Lisa Pearlman

Do You Have the Attitude of Gratitude

I accidentally deleted my Thanksgiving post from 11/24/11, so I am RePosting it. I am GRATEFUL I had it saved elsewhere! (Thanks "Evernote")

Hey fam! HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and yours! May we all be blessed with a day of Abundance surrounded by our friends or family and filled with peace, love, light and of course Gratitude. Gratitude. Such a simple word to convey so much meaning. Studies have shown time and again that Gratitude is the one essential feeling state necessary for Happiness. You may not have EVERY THING you ever wanted, chances are you do not, but to experience Gratitude, and in turn, Happiness, you must at least recognize the miracle of abundance in some aspect of your life. Rather than pining for what you DON'T have, acknowlege that you WANT some of what you DO have. Hence, in order to experience True Happiness it is important to cultivate a feeling of Gratitude, or "Attitude of Gratitude." How? Start by taking a few quiet minutes to yourself today to really experience Gratitude in the Now. This can be done in many ways...count your blessings, make a gratitude list, do a gratitude meditation, offer blessings to others, pray for world healing or an individual's recovery, or simply treat everyone with compassion and kindness. Make this practice part of your daily routine, ideally at the start of your day or before you retire at the end of your day. Seize "GRATITUDE Moments" through-out the day...while in the shower or in line at the bank, during the morning commute, while waiting for the bus...quick mental reminders or affirmations that arouse a feeling of Gratitude can be squeezed into any spare minute of the day. After a month of Gratitude Practice, evaluate your level of Happiness. Do you notice any difference(s) in your life? Let me know! I would love to hear some feedback from you, whether it be on this post, or a previous one. Please leave your comments! I appreciate and value your input, in addition to your readership! Happy Thanksgiving! ~ Lisa @Scorpiol13

The written word is as essential to my life as oxygen is. I live and breathe the written word. It is my saving grace, my strength, my sanity, my "raison d'êtré." And when I am gone, my writing will be my legacy, allowing me to live forever through my words. I not only see, speak and hear words...I FEEL words. Each word seems to have its own unique quirks and qualities...texture, color, sound, rhythm, temperature, tone, mood, volume, flavor...all of which are independent of it's assigned meaning or definition. In fact, all these perceived nuances undergo transformation, whether subtle or profound, when a word is combined with another word or group of words. Wordplay, rhymes, compound syllables, synonyms, homonyms, simile, metaphor, allegory, alliteration...they all interact to create a dynamic flow. The possibilities are endless.

Dare to Dream...Realize the Dream...Live the Dream

Dreams are realities waiting to manifest...focus all your attention and intention on your dreams, and they will manifest in your life! The very nature of the Universal Law of Attraction guarantees it! And the grace of God wills it! If it is meant to be, and you allow it to manifest, then it will be. In fact, it already IS. And you already ARE. You just need to open your heart and your arms and embrace the miracle that is YOU!
Peace ... OneLove ... Namasté ... Lisa

Aldous Huxley Sheds Some Light On Our Attraction to Mind-Altering Substances


OPIOIDS: the birth of a new generation
"If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution - then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise."

I had to reblog...this is the cutest ever! I know you will love it too :-)

The "Real Life" Social Network

The Game of LIFE is the "be all and end all" of social networks...Don't be afraid to use that "Unfollow" or "Unfriend" that "Flush" app regularly to eliminate any toxins building up before they sap your positive energy or overwhelm you with negative energy. If those methods are too subtle, there's always that passive-aggressive "Block" feature that keeps all resistant negative ions at bay. You design and manage all your online networks effectively... Doesn't it make sense to apply these same principles to "real life"?
You are in the driver's seat of your life...create the life you want and surround yourself with the people who support or complement your blueprint for life.

(Below is a quote by Rev Run, formerly of Run DMC @RevRunWisdom on Twitter)

I Create, Therefore I Am...

Happiness is a by-product of Creativity, or Creative Process. All Creation is Beauty (whether creator or created, the source or the muse). Happiness can not exist without the creative process, any more than life can exist without the creative process of Breathing. Many creative people such as artists, writers, painters, poets, dancers seem to live in misery. However, in reality, the human condition by default is one of misery and suffering. Through creativity one may transcend humanness, the human aspects of self, mainly the ego, and become self-less. Only through Creativity and Meditation can one who is alive return to the source, merging with the universe and all creation on a vibrational level. At that level there is no misery, no judgments, no that level there is only Harmony, or Oneness. I am You, I am God, I am Universe, I am the vibration of highest frequency, I am LOVE.

Let LOVE WAVES wash over you gently, carrying you to safe and distant shores when you are unable to make another decision, let alone take another step. Don't resist...just go with the flow...Let go and let LOVE fuse with your self-will, til they become one and the same. LIFE = LOVE = UNIVERSE = "GOD"

Life is a Rainbow

What’s at the end of your Rainbow? Follow it and find out…it’s all about the journey and the colors along the way…the end destination might be the pot of gold but its value is unstable as it is determined by man…but the colors that pave the way reflect the real beauty and magic…divine, pristine, untouched by and untouchablegc. to man. But remember, for such pristine beauty and vibrant color to manifest, it must first rain. However, no matter how much or how long it rains, light always follows...the sun eventually shines through to light the way to another day.

What Do We Desire? (as asked on Quora)

I just answered this question on Quora: What do we desire? (My answer, I believe, is universal to all human beings)
We desire to feel happiness through connection to another human being, to feel we belong, we are loved, we matter to someone. We desire to be free from pain & suffering, or lessen the perception/feeling of suffering. Lastly, I believe we inherently desire some sort of spiritual (not necessarily religious) connection, whether this desire be conscious or unconscious.

Any comments? I'd love to hear from ya!

Our Inbox Will Never Be Empty

There is no catching up in life. Our inbox will never be empty! We hurry to get things done...only to free up time to get more things we can finish...get caught up...stay ahead of the game...So we can do even more! We are like robots, mindlessly doing, doing, doing...when was the last time you took 5 minutes to just BE...while doing absolutely nothing? We are human BEings, not human what happens if we never get caught up and we die with unpaid bills, unwashed laundry, unanswered email? It's time we celebrate our consciousness and be mindful of this moment! Right Now! STOP multi-tasking for a minute and just BE. Just perceive and breathe in life!

Troy Davis - A Time to Kill?


No human being has the right to pass judgment on or take the life of another human being. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Only GOD may judge. In this country we will fight ardently to protect the rights of unborn life yet we tolerate and even support the denial of the right to life of a living human being who has memories, feelings, interpersonal connections and life experience, one who may even be innocent of the crime he is being punished for. We create more victims by perpetuating this cyclical "eye for an eye" mentality, callously writing off as collateral damage the grief & suffering of the forsaken's innocent family members. Yet we (as a country) claim to be a "Civilized Society" & "leader of the free world"...REALLY???

From Detox to Dharma

It has been said that “Religion is the Opiate for (of?) the Masses.” Appropriate analogy? Opiates initially soothe the soul, but eventually become all-consuming…progressing to Addiction, depravity, destruction and death. It is a fact that more wars have been fought and more blood has been shed in the name of RELIGION, than for any other reason in the history of our planet. Religion tends to label and divide people by their belief in a certain dogma…it divides families, communities, countries & nations. It is EXclusive rather than INclusive.
I believe Spirituality, in contrast, is “the Unity of the Masses.” Essentially INclusive, it UNITES the entire Universe as ONE. It reflects our personal connection, or relationship, with our Higher Power…with our Higher Self, each other, nature, the Universe and all that is divine.

In conclusion, I am unimpressed by Religion and the hypocricy it spreads through the masses like a contagious disease. I am currently engaged in spiritual pursuits, working on deepening my connection with my higher power and my higher self. I am exploring spiritual practices based on Ancient Eastern philosophies such as Buddhism (as a philosophy rather than a religion), meditation, metaphysics, Law of Attraction, and various mantras and teachings of the many spiritual leaders and gurus of India.

Suffering Optional: The Power of Thoughts

Life is all about choices. In every moment that I live and breathe consciously, I have options. So why do I needlessly suffer? My empathy and sensitivity allow me (compel me?) to feel the pain and suffering of the world; friends, family, strangers, animals…I develop attachments; I take on and internalize their suffering as my own. I suffer for and with them; my heart aches as if it is connected to their hearts. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed, as if I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. So is my “gift” a blessing or a curse? The Law of Attraction says It is neither. I have learned that my suffering is a choice. My choice. Suffering is a state of mind, an option, a chosen emotional response to reality, based on attachment to preferred or desired outcomes. I want what I want, which may not be compatible with WHAT IS. I am my own worst enemy, creating and focusing my attention on thoughts that become “barriers” to my productivity and success. Obsessive thoughts threaten my sanity, health and happiness. If I am lost in my thoughts, I lack Awareness of the present moment. I am essentially in a state of Mindlessness, existing, going thru the motions of living. Most thoughts focus on the past (reminiscing, memories, regrets) or the future (planning, worrying, what ifs), which don’t exist in the NOW. Thoughts create actions, or inaction. Thoughts are powerful…I better be aware and choose my thoughts carefully…be mindful…hmmmm

Hey! Guess what? I get it! NOW is all we really have, isn’t it? This moment is happening right NOW so may as well be in it, right? Here’s my plan…first and foremost I’M DOING ME! I am practicing Mindfulness through meditation and positive affirmations. I am learning to focus my attention on what is happening NOW, choosing positive thoughts, maintaining present moment Awareness. I am making progress, taking baby steps to gain control of my life. I am working on acceptance of WHAT IS, rather than aiming for perfection. I am practicing patience (that elusive virtue trying to live life one moment at a time, slowing down to experience life as it unfolds. Living life on life’s terms. I AM…forever a work in Progress…as we all are…as life is. Perfection is illusory…a lie…but Progress is REAL!
Keep it Real y’all! Thanks for listening to/reading my ramblings on "Blog This!"

"Lake of Fire" or "Serenity on the Horizon"

What does this photo mean to you? How does it make you feel? What senses are aroused? What title comes to mind?

For me, the first word that came to mind was "Serenity." Then "Beauty", followed by "Mesmerizing." I feel calm and peaceful yet inspired as the visual imagery metaphorically caresses my eyes. The title "Lake Placid" initially came to mind as I gazed upon the still waters, but then my eyes focused on the ball of fire, the sun, looming large as if emerging from beneath the water's surface. Hence, my title "Lake of Fire." Yet the overall vibe I get from the scene as a whole is one of serenity, inspiring my alternate title "Serenity on the Horizon." But that's me...I'm just sayin' :-)

Freedom in Transformation


The butterfly is a symbol of peace, freedom and transformation. Always remember where it came from--it was born a caterpillar, faced many obstacles, and took time to meditate in silence inside its crysalis, before emerging as a beautiful butterfly. Unfortunately many caterpillars get sacrificed, squashed by their surroundings, during the journey. So becoming a butterfly also symbolizes survival.
