Going Kabbalah

Positive Thought:
The secret of health for both mind and body is
not to mourn for the past, worry about the future,
or anticipate troubles...
but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.

{"Blow my mind while I blow your..."}

So I'm starting to get into Kabbalah.
There's a Kabbalah center in Houston and I'm planning to attend a Kabbalah seminar next Monday.
I'm trying to learn more about it. I really like the doctrines!
I don't like "religion," but I do believe in God as I've found God and I do uphold my own beliefs.
Truth is that Kabbalah was never meant for a specific sect. Rather, it was intended to be used by all humanity to unify the world.

Kabbalah teaches that in order for us to claim the gifts we were created to receive, we must first earn those gifts. We earn them by undertaking our spiritual work — the process of fundamentally transforming ourselves. By helping us recognize the sources of negativity in our own minds and hearts, Kabbalah gives us the tools for positive change.

Kabbalah teaches that every human being is a work in progress. Any pain, disappointment, or chaos that exists in our lives is not because this is how life is meant to be, but only because we have not yet finished the work that brought us here. That work, quite simply, is the process of freeing ourselves from the domination of the human ego and creating an affinity with the sharing essence of God.
In everyday life, this transformation means letting go of anger, jealousy, and other reactive behaviors in favor of patience, empathy, and compassion. It does not mean giving up all desire and going to live on a mountaintop. On the contrary, it means desiring more of the fulfillment that humanity was meant to have.

{"Pearls of Wisdom!"}

I feel like I've already attained some of which the Kabbalah speaks of, but I am always looking to improve and perfect myself! After all, [[as Kabbalah states]]
we are here in this world to reach our potential and literally become like God, with giving and sharing as the foundation of our being.

I have yet to get The Zohar as it is written in the ancient language of Aramaic, a sister language to Hebrew that employs Hebrew letters. {Note: While Hebrew was the language of the upper classes, Aramaic was the language of the common people.}
And I'm very iffy about the Red String, a strand of red wool worn around the left wrist to ward off the destructive forces of the Evil Eye. Its purpose is to protect us from the envious looks of others, and to help us eliminate feelings of jealousy and resentment in ourselves.

I'll see how it goes. I am like a chameleon — always changing.

[[Once you've learned how to live, you don't fear nor seek death!]]

Join The Cult: Sara Happ

Featured in Elle Magazine's November 2008 issue and various other magazines worldwide, Sara Happ is the woman behind the cult lip products worth raving about.

The Lip Scrub
[[$24]]- the original exfoliant.
This one of a kind lip scrub eliminates dry, flaky skin to leave lips ridiculously soft and supple.

Also, it comes in six different flavors: Almond Creme, Peppermint, Vanilla Bean, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, and Cocoa.

Along with the debut of her much-anticipated follow up product, The Lip Slip [[$24]], Sara vows to offer her customers the richest, most luxurious lip balm imaginable.

A balm like no other - The Lip Slip is infused with Sweet Almond, Jojoba & Macadamia nut oils and leaves no color, just the richest, glossiest hydration imaginable. Wear it all day and/or wear it overnight. Results are immediate.

The Lip Slip is inspired by the supple feel of a shimmery gold Yves Saint Laurent calfskin bag, a bottle of Coco Chanel Mademoiselle, your favorite camisole: soft, sweet, nude, girly and grand.

"The world doesn’t need another lip balm. It needs the right one. Slip into this."

FYI: If you live in Houston, you can purchase Sara Happ products at Muse Boutique and Bliss Nail Spa.

Be More Me; Be More Free

Positive Thought:
If somebody says something to you that hurts,
instead of going into unconscious reaction such as attack,
you let it pass right through you.
Offer no resistance!
That is forgiveness.

{Jonathan Kroppmann}

I'm going to interview Jonathan for my blog and possibly for another fashion blog whom requested that I write for them if I get the time or have any ideas. I think it would be a great piece to really stand out from the other blogs, simply because Jonathan is a private and shy individual. He is a very kindred soul, in my view.
Plus, it would be a great way to advance my writing skills.

But, as of the moment I can't think straight.
In my mind swirls worry, wants and needs...

*Drama always seems to find me.
But, my new vibe and philosophy is:
"Thinking Ahead! Positive Vibes."
I'm not just preaching it - I'm living it, I'm eating it,
and I'm breathing it!

I know I'm not perfect and there is a lot I need to work on i.e. learning to forgive, having more patience and self control, losing my fear factor, etc.

{"Walking Art!"}

Lately with the new incidents that have happened in my life, I think it's pretty obvious I am ready to let myself be open
and let myself be loved.
But, I am and will forever be fastidious!

{"Let it take over your body, mind and soul!"}

I'm open and ready.
For you!
To justify my love.
