Quote of the Day:  When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge. ~ Tuli Kupferberg

Essential Element: Most people cannot readily describe what they want – what they would like to experience, become or create. This is exactly why most change efforts fail.  [Click to read Spark Insight: 'Creating Change'].

Journal:  You have no idea what your missing. It’s that thing that hasn’t happened yet, that non-entity waiting out in the spaces of the coming days to be created.  What is it? How will it taste? Feel? Look? Envision in your journal the specifics of that vague idea you continue to dwell on in the realm of your health and well being. You know you want it more than anything. What must you start doing to make this a reality? What must you stop?  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day: It is not that love is blind.  It is that love sees with a painter’s eye, finding the essence that renders all else background.  ~ Robert Brault

Essential Element:  Unconditional Love is the purest expression of genuine acceptance.  It’s important to differentiate that Unconditional Love does not imply unconditional approval.  We should reserve the right to disapprove of another’s behavior, yet, without judgment, accept them and love them unconditionally  [click here to read Spark Insight: Unconditional Love].

Journal: All of us have people with whom we very much disagree. We couldn’t be more different, and don’t’ see eye –to-eye, at all. They may in fact reside within our extended family!  The mark of a healthy mental attitude on the deepest level is being able  to accept these people unconditionally – rather then letting them get under our skin. Is there someone whom you very outwardly disapprove of? Jot them down in your journal –  then write down how you will outwardly choose to demonstrate your love for them this week.   [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
