From The Way of the Peaceful Parent

"When we indulge in being playful, we enter our child’s world, we gain relief and give our child relief from our seriousness. A child’s world lights up when their parent enters their world of play and it helps us parents shake off some of our stress." ~The Way of the Peaceful Parent

"A short afternoon walk to Bridal Veil view lookout, a local waterfall, to do some panoramas using long exposures 2-10s. As I was about to pack up a large flock of 120 or so cockatoos came up the gully from the main Jamison Valley, stopping on trees and flocking almost tag like moving in stop start swarm.

"My father was my earliest inspiration and instilled in me a love of music. He had a beautiful singing voice and would often sing Italian folk songs to my brother, sister and I on the front steps of our home in Astoria, Queens. Although he passed away when I was only ten years old, I still have vivid memories of his beautiful voice and I was told by relatives that in his birthplace in Italy he would go to the top of the mountains and sing and everyone in the valley would be able to hear him. I was fortunate enough to visit my family's ancestral home in Podargani a few years ago and stand on that very same mountaintop and sing O Solo Mio. It was a moment I will never forget and while thinking of my father I want to wish everyone a Happy Father's Day" ~Tony Bennett

"Many people will never read a Bible, but they will read you.” ~Ricky Maye, An Emerging Spirituality (Goodreads)

“People often reject and criticize what they believe Jesus would have no part in, but in reality most times Jesus is a part of the scandalous, the dirty and the dangerous.” ~Ricky Maye, An Emerging Spirituality

“Sometimes we can focus so much on nothing that we make it a big something of nothing” ~Ricky Maye, An Emerging Spirituality

“Spirituality can’t be explained, religion seeks for every explanation. Religion will debate and try to prove the existence of God, while spirituality will explain God with as little words as possible. Religion will try to limit God, Christianity, theology and intelligence, while spirituality will open God up to faith; the invisible and confusing and uncomfortable.” ~Ricky Maye, An Emerging Spirituality

“We read about the name Jesus was given at his birth; Immanuel, meaning “God with us”. This God wasn’t content with dwelling in fiction, this God wasn’t content living with the seraphim and this God wasn’t content with bulls and goats anymore.

Here’s the amazing thing, God doesn’t care if you’re a catholic, a Lutheran, Post modern or Emergent; he wants to sit with you.” ~Ricky Maye, An Emerging Spirituality

"Judge yourself no longer. Instead thank all your ‘negative’ thoughts and emotions for showing you that what they offer you, you truly do not want." ~James Blanchard Cisneros

"Negative emotions are not negative. Negative emotions allow you to see which illusions of yourself and others you are still holding unto as real. Thus processing negative emotions is a sacred part of your journey, of all our journeys. Today practice patience, not only with yourself but also with others, for we are all One, and so when you learn patience for others, you are also learning to respect your own process.

Those that have been entrusted to you by Source are those He is asking you to comfort with your words. You will not be in front of anyone ‘by chance’ today. Chance, is an illusionary idea of the ego, you are on a sacred journey and all those you encounter today are those you have been sent here to serve. Do not take your mission lightly, pay very close attention to the words you use, and align your words with the energies of love, compassion, forgiveness, peace, and joy." ~JBC

The Power of Checking in on Yourself Throughout the Day:
Every moment allows you the opportunity to begin anew. Throughout the day, practice becoming present, returning to the present moment and asking yourself: “What kind of day do I want to experience.” Today let us practice checking in on ourselves, and deciding if the thoughts, feelings, emotions, actions and reactions we are experiencing are the ones that will assist us in having the day we want. When you are not feeling confident, forgiving, generous, loving, or kind, stop yourself and say, “This is not who I truly desire to be, I now choose to stop this thinking and return to my truest-self, I now choose to be who I truly am. I have control of how I act, behave, react, and interact with others and myself. I no longer choose to put effort into following the same dead end roads of judgment and self-judgment that the ego demands I follow. I am no longer an unconscious prisoner to what the ego has programmed me to think. I now choose to become the expression of the day I desire to have.” ~James Blanchard Cisneros, Author of the book "You Have Chosen to Remember"

What is Success?
In the world of illusions, success can be measured a hundred ways, and failure a thousand others. In truth, you achieve success through your simple participation in the life experience. You experience growth, and that is what you have come to do. If you accomplish what you have come to do, then you have succeeded. In that sense, there is no more need to ever talk about the idea of being a successful human being. My friend, let go of the world’s illusionary idea of success, and focus on those areas in your life that fill you with passion, peace, and joy. Those areas will reenergize and magnify the light in you. By following your passions, peace, and joy, you will successfully serve as a reminder and example to others that their true hopes, desires, and dreams, are indeed within reach, within them. ~James Blanchard Cisneros, Author of the book "You Have Chosen to Remember"
