3 ways to feel good when things seem bad

Joshua Becker writes about how minimalism is less about the things you remove and more about the things you add in his post Minimalism:Addition not subtraction

Create more, Consume less

It can feel good to let go, and by letting go, you are freeing yourself. Letting go of fake needs.

Be great and full and abundance will dawn in your life.

200$ for clean water…Together we can make a difference!

original

Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on;
‘Twas not given for thee alone,
Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another’s tears,
‘Til in Heaven the deed appears –
Pass it on.
~Henry Burton, Pass It On

Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease and diarrhoea remains the second leading cause of death of children under the age of five. Currently 800 million people (1 out of every 9) drink water that is likely to make them sick. And diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

The problem is enormous but we can make a difference.This is our world and our opportunity to change it.For only $25, Water.org can get someone safe water for life. Co-founded by Matt Damon, Water.org has been helping people get sustainable solutions for over twenty years. We can make a difference in the world, we can help change someone’s life.

One way you can help

You can donate $5.00, $10.00, $50.00, or any dollar amount you choose. I have selected $200 as the fundraising goal & I hope, we can achieve this with your help.

Donate generously! Donation doesn’t have to be huge…It’s the giving spirit that counts. Donate small or donate big!

Additionally, you can support this goal by sharing this post on social media. But the greatest gift you can give today is the needed funds to provide clean water to somebody who needs it. And somebody, somewhere whom you will never meet will thank you for it!

Deepak Chopra on reincarnation

What was most magical in my childhood was transformation. Death itself was seen as a brief stopping point on an endless soul journey that could turn a peasant into a king and vice versa. With the possibility of infinite lifetimes extending forward and backward, a soul could experience hundreds of heavens and hells.

Death ended nothing; it opened up limitless adventures. A drop of water becomes vapor, which is invisible, yet vapor materializes into billowing clouds, and from clouds rain falls back to earth, forming river torrents and eventually merging into the sea.

Has the drop of water died along the way? No, it undergoes a new expression at each stage. Likewise, the idea that I have a fixed body locked in space and time is a mirage.

Any drop of water inside my body could have been ocean, cloud, river, or spring the day before. I remind myself of this fact when the bonds of daily life squeeze too tight.
