This Easter is for #Kenya.

Getting ready for sunrise service as He is risen. My thoughts are with those Kenyan Christians that lost 140 students at the University to Muslim terrorist just for being Christian. 

It took real courage and real Faith when asked if they were Muslim or Christian by the terrorist and then slaughtered. 

However, today they are with Him in paradise on this most special day, and that in itself I hope helps those families heal and persevere forward. 

Happy Easter ūüėä

How To Bridge #Differences Begins With A Strong Ear

I have found this in my many situations of disagreements or encounters of debate and decision-making.

“In order to bridge differences, you need a strong ear, neutralized mind, and conscious ability to allow the inflow of all information without injecting unprocessed rationale. Then keep a dampened tongue, so once the mind rationally creates a neutral and common ground solution, the tongue is much more precise and efficient in delivering that solution to such a degree, the opposer will begin to subconsciously turn around their weak ear, strong tongue and irrational thinking into the same level of rationality, hence a bridge can now be formed. However, it starts with a strong ear first.”

Have a blessed one,

Keeping A Gentle Soul and #Compassionate Heart Is Not A Character Of Weakness, It’s Quite The Opposite.

Something I’ve realized over time, and that is:

“Keeping a gentle soul and compassionate heart is not a character of weakness. In fact it’s quite the opposite.

When one has to stand strong and use strong will, then it’s respected and carried through simply because others know where it originated from, the compassionate heart and gentle soul, and that has significant weight.

However, if strong will is not overshadowed by compassion and meekness on a regular basis, then when it is truly needed, it will unfortunately never be respected, seen as strong or of value, and hence the objective that summoned for strong will, be not be carried through from others.

So keep a gentle soul and compassionate heart, and your inner strength will never be compromised.”

Have a great one.

Steps In Life Give You The Greatest Education Naturally. Your Influence Makes It Easy Or Harder For Others Going Up The Same Staircase.

One thing I love about life is the steps that lead you, but more importantly the people you meet along the way. Those steps also help educate you in identifying real and fake people.

Everything I’ve done since the beginning of being “on my on” sort of speak, I’ve viewed as steps. Every career move, every financial decision good or bad, and every involvement in something are steps. Like real steps, each one precedes the next. In life, the same thing is true. The only difference is some steps are short and some are very wide, but they all are steps in moving you forward.

In other words, some steps are very wide and this can be a long duration in a career, school or any organizational involvement. When you move to the next event in your life, that is the next step.

By comparing my life events whether successful or failed¬† to steps, it helps me see the positive reasoning in the decisions I’ve made, and hence helps me keep more of a look out for the next “positive” step rather than just taking any step that comes along.

The most important thing that comes from every step in life is the education that’s developed along with it. It’s not text-book education, but real world education in cultural development, spiritual development, and humanitarian development. However, be cautious because the steps you choose to take will influence that education and development for the good or worse in yourself and others. That’s why it’s important to carefully take each step in your life and not just jump to the next one without careful due diligence.

One great aspect that I derived from this on going education in taking steps through life, is the ability to meet people along the way.¬† Along with these steps we take helps us more and more to identify real and fake people. This is vital because so much influence comes from the people we meet along the way, and thus influences the development process as we go through life. So, it’s important to be aware of real and fake people and how to distinguish them.

One important factor I’ve found when in an unavoidable engagement around fake people, is to never treat them worse or undignified because by doing so, you will lower the subconscious integrity instilled within you, and this will eventually spill out into the conscious. Then it’s seen by people who will consider you to be fake. So, treat them equally, but be aware they are different and find a gentle way to exit from the relationship if possible. If it’s an unavoidable relationship like a co-worker for example, then again treat them no different from your real friends or colleagues.

Remember, everyone is on the same type staircase and are all being educated along the way. It’s the greatest education we get naturally and helps us to develop as a society in general. The level of natural education is elevated by each step you take in life. Just remember it’s a step, and no matter how hard or how tough things are at the moment, there is a next step up.

Steps go up, never down. Each time you step to the next one, your influence helps make it easier or harder for those around you. So be aware how you treat others, as they too are taking steps just like you and I. They too are learning and developing just like you and I, and they too pass down the influence you and I give them.

So for a better, more tolerant and giving society, we must all pass down good influence because influence is going to be given regardless, but it’s up to us how we choose to shape it and make its purpose.

“Love the steps in life, for they always go up and provide real education. Love the people you meet along the way and use the education to identify real and fake people, but never treat them any different. Influence them both well and equally because they too are going up the staircase of life and passing down influence you’ve given them.”

#Paranoia Is A Terrible Disease That Can Suppress And Eradicate Your Natural Compassion

I’ve written many comments on the situation of Syria and other horrible events around the globe. One thing I’ve discovered in reading so many thousands of comments on articles, is there seems to be a underlining foundation of extreme paranoia.

I guess that’s only natural with the exposure we have today in medias and over opinionated public figures, however, I believe all of humanity is given a natural, intuitive, instinct of compassion. A compassion for not only other fellow humans, but a compassion for what is right and wrong and the ability to take action in the name of that very compassion without hesitance or fear.

This same instinct is what drives the heroes today when they take action to help or save without the thought of fear or consequences they will endure.

Paranoia is a disease we contract by means of letting ourselves physiologically consume thoughts of the worst in situations. The more we see those negative consequence through unavoidable medias, the more our instinct of natural compassion begins to deteriorate. Once Paranoia has set in so deep within our minds and souls, the compassion and instinctive actions that go along with it are completely eradicated. Eradicated so much, that even when we see something being done wrong whether on the street, in our community or in our Global community, we turn our heads without hesitance instead of acting without hesitance.

This action and non action ranges on a simplistic scale. It can affect something as simple as saving a cat in a tree, helping an older person cross the road in heavy traffic, standing up in peaceful protest all the way to taking action uniformly as a united Nation.

In my personal life, I try very hard to always look at the positive side of any matter before giving an equal objective view of the negative. More times than none, you will find yourself seeing the right decisions and actions from the positive side first. That approach will not only strengthen your natural compassion, but will help limit any form of paranoia from growing inside your soul that is meant for peace. I hope it helps with yours as well, for all humanity sakes in the future.

So keep that in mind when you read articles or view the medias that are constantly publishing the negative situations both local and globally. When something someone says or does that touches a harmonic value in you, don’t let paranoia stop you from engaging that feeling and acting upon it if you are able. Any person.

 

Have a blessed one,

#Profiling “Don’t Mess With Granny”

I usually share a bit of philosophy based on my experiences or beliefs, however, I also have normal, comical days as well. This particular one just shows how our profiling can change in an instant.

“It was a Sunday afternoon, and while standing in line to check out in a local grocery store,¬† I noticed the barley 5 foot, elderly, lady in front of me.¬† She was in her mid 80s to early 90s.

Her white and blue hair was bundled up into a beautiful bun and lightly sprayed with hair spray,  make up and jewelry perfectly balanced,  wearing a conservative,  yellow sun dress with white decorative flats,  and whose perfume was elegantly light and sparse.

She wore a lovely smile, glasses with a gold chain dangling so gently, and she was very well spoken.

As she reached into her finely made hand bag, her sleeve rode up her arm just enough to reveal her tattoo, which read,

“DON’T MESS WITH GRANNY!”¬†

Tickled me to death, and after noticing I had seen her tattoo, she graciously nodded and winked with a smile as she left.

#Humanitarian Needs and Deeds, What Are You Receiving?

In doing good things for others no matter the size or recognition, I’ve come to this conclusion thus far in my forty years…

“The amount of time you take in giving unto others in any area of their needs, will equivalently deliver, if not surpass, in the durations of time in receiving all that you need.
For the dimensions of humanitarian needs are always determined by the dimensions of those who give in humanitarian deeds.” __ Jason Young Guy

Keep in mind that any size of contribution to others is considered a deed. It doesn’t have to be an actual tangible item, nor does it have to be something that is recognized by others.

Your heart knows the validity of a good deed for another person(s), and that is all that matters to the efforts in being a good humanitarian.

It’ is a practiced behavior, that once learned, will become a sub conscious habit rather than a conscious effort. The rewards are endless both for your soul and your life.

Have a blessed one.

Simple quote on #Patience.

“The early bird may always get the worm, but the second mouse always gets the cheese.” _JYG

In other words, being first is not always best, and many valuable lessons are learned in being anything but first.
Patience tames the eager soul, and sometimes helps avoid bad or costly decisions.

Giving #Gratitude, Accompanied By The Mental Visualizations, Can Give A Instant Relief From #Stress, #Fear And #Uncertainty Daily.

20130729-225038.jpg Jason Young Guy

As I was flying at 35 thousand feet during the early morning hours, I had several pressing problems that was not only causing me a lot of personal stress, worry and anxiety, but it was also causing me to question the choices and decisions I have made recently and the ones that were lying before me.¬† I couldn’t help but think about something Bob Proctor told me while I was out at Lake Las Vegas, and thought I would share it, as well as, the results with me personally in hopes that anyone else may benefit from it.

Bob Proctor is known for the internationally acclaimed film and book, “The Secret”. Now, I’m not big on motivational speakers, but Bob is a little different as he was mentored and coached by Earl Nightingale, who was mentored by Napoleon Hill, who was mentored by Andrew Carnegie.¬† So, I give Bob a little more of my attention than I do most speakers or authors. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate anyone whose philosophy is to em-better human potential, and provide real, productive and proven ways to achieve it on a continual basis.

Bob mentioned something to me while discussing a project he and his foundation are working on in South Africa for schools and under privileged children. It was such a profound moment for me, and it was  something I already knew yet never have truly applied it in such a conscious and intense way until now.

We always say under our breath or in a not so intentional way, how thankful we are for things in our lives. Unfortunately most people are so consumed with every day problems and pending issues, that we rarely take time to really think of the great blessings and positive aspects in our personal lives, much less, give actual “thanks” for them, or more importantly “Gratitude.”

Now I know a lot of people who say, “of course I’m aware of the great things and achievements in my life”, but in all honestly how many times have we sat in private with ourselves, and really visualized each positive and significant thing in our lives, and give real, soulful¬† gratitude for each one while we are purposely visualizing it in our mind¬† as we give the mental gratitude? Not many times at all, if ever. Thus, we never feel the real ease of anxiety and relief of stress from the pending and upcoming problems¬† we face every day in our lives.

When we stop in the busy pursuit of life, and give true, honest and intentional gratitude on a daily basis and “mentally visualize”¬† each one as it’s done,¬† an almost miraculous, calming effect instantly takes place over our minds and spirit for the problems and negative situations that are consuming our minds with worry, fear and uncertainty.

Sitting on an airplane at 35 thousand feet, and dwelling on a problem that was consuming my thoughts and churning my stomach with worry, I decided to do what I already knew how to, and that was give gratitude for the many accomplishments and even tangible things I have in my life. I consciously made my mind and soul focus on that gratitude as I gave it in silent, with my eyes closed.

The instant calm and relief was almost instantaneous, and I was literally aware of it which was just stunning for me, not to mention the relief I was desperately needing. In fact, it was such a mysterious relief of stress, that the more I gave the gratitude and visualized it consciously, the more and more less stressful I was over the problem lying ahead.

Giving a conscious gratitude for the things in your life ranging from people, assets and experiences to simplistic wonderful moments in time, has such a power within you that I truly believe it will not only calm and ease the anxiety and tension of the problems, but can possibly eradicates or solve them as well.

Now, some call it a trust in Faith, some call it the Laws Of Attraction, and some simply call it luck, but even if giving the gratitude visually in your mind doesn’t solve the emotional turmoil caused by problem or situations, it will¬† greatly reduces the stress and worry with significant impact, and it’s almost instantaneous in the subconscious first, and then you will see it work in the conscious of your mind, and most importantly¬† you will feel the results in your heart and inner soul.

I’m convinced with the intentional practice of visualizing in your mind the most cherished and beloved things you have acquired or experienced in your life, accompanied with a silent or verbal acknowledgement of gratitude for them on a daily or even weekly basis, it will significantly reduce, if not eradicate, the fears and problems you are experiencing in your life.It doesn’t matter if you are religious or not. It does not matter if you aren’t good with words. It does not matter if you have very little to be grateful for. It DOES matter if you acknowledge them and give an abundance of gratitude for them.

A man with few blessings in his life is equal to and no less or greater than a man with multitudes of blessings. I say ‘blessings’¬† in the sense of achievements, tangible items of importance or significance, and real events that gave you the most positive benefit for your soul and mind, even if it’s just the simplicity of your new-born child or the acquiring of your long time pet.

I already knew how to give gratitude for the things I’ve achieved and acquired in my life, and it’s not that I haven’t been grateful, but I just never really, really applied the gratitude. I mean literally applied the gratitude with a sincere, conscious and visual acknowledgement of each one. The more I visually gave gratitude, the smaller and of less significance the existing problems I was facing became. They simply dissipated in my spirit and my mind.

Something so simple, and it took sitting on a plane alone at 35 thousand feet to think about and actually apply it.¬† Now, I find myself giving gratitude within myself while I’m in places that give me that opportunity when I’m not at home or in private. I’m talking about simple places like waiting in the grocery line, sitting at a red light, or anywhere you can have a moment to focus on that instead of the existing problems.

It’s a conscious choice you have to be willing to do, and then be willing to do on a consistent basis. Soon, it will become apart of your subconscious practices, and the habit will be embedded in you. This can¬† lead to only one thing, and that is¬† almost instantaneously eliminating any negative reactions to what use to be significant problems or situations you are facing and the issues to come in the future.

Remember, you were born to choose, and only you can choose how to handle problems and situations that are affecting your daily life and the reactions you have to them. Never ‘expect’ anything to happen, always ‘believe’ it will happen, and the gratitude you give for those things will ensure a prosperous and positive growth of your mind, spirit and ability to face testing problems and situations.

“Giving conscious gratitude and mentally visualizing those things as you gratify for,¬† significantly reduces, if not eliminates, the stress, fear and anxiety of day-to-day life.” ___ Jason Young Guy
