From Darkness to LIFE!

The Progressive Realization of My Idea, and Life.

Not Stuck Anymore! Awareness

Visualize with me for a moment a car stuck in the mud. The harder the driver tries to get out. The deeper the car gets. That is what has been happening to the vast majority of people throughout history. Some people because they watched others got smart. When they got stuck they stopped, and waited for help to come. Some get help, but many others do not get out, because they lack the type of help needed to get themselves out. What they lack is the awareness of the right type of help needed.

Just siting here pondering on all of the years I had been stuck in life waiting for someone to show me how to progress to the life that I had always wanted. Just down right euphoria! All of the books that I have been reading were and have been in the library all these years. I was just not aware that they were there. All of the principles and concepts have been know about for centuries. I was not aware of this. Everything that ever was, and ever will be has always been here, but I was not aware. Everything to create a happy life, a happy marriage, and a happy family, career, etc. Is already here.

So the principle that is missing is simply this. To become aware!

The Attitude Shift…Mine Explained

I recorded an interview last week about an attitude shift that I made over 19 years ago.  I added a post on my Facebook page about another attitude shift, and I was asked what was the shift about.

I became completely aware of the principle that our present world is a direct reflection, or a complete manifestation of what we think about everyday. The mind, not the brain is the most sophisticated and misunderstood area of our being. Think of a mirror, and not a trick mirror. The reflection that you see is what is! My mentor Earl Nightingale stated that, “we are the sum total of all of our thoughts from the last five years, and we will become the sum total of all of our present thoughts over the next five years”. I heard a friend say over 11 years ago and, I did not pay attention to his words. Junk in. Junk out! If life sucks, then it is because of what is going in the mind. I like to call it the filing cabinet in the mind. All thoughts will stay there until they are replaced!

Another aspect to my shift was the fact that I had not been planning out my life, because I was not thinking. Some will say we do think, but when you truly understand the real concept of thinking. We don’t think. It has been said that 2% think 3% think that they think, and 95% would rather die than think. All these years I have been in the 3%, and after reading and fully understanding this concept, an attitude shift was immediately needed!

Now comes the task of learning how to fully implement, and to create the new life, and the new brighter path in life that I desire to walk down. One filled with new thoughts, which creates new ideas, which creates the new results.

It is amazing what happens when you become aware!

Humbling Parent Moment

As a parent there is always a question in the back of your mind about how well you are doing. There are times when you can see the results and there are times when you just have to wonder.

There is a humbling feeling to wake up in the morning to see a group of sleeping teens in your living room! Knowing that they just gathered together to spend an evening of wholesome moments together. This will be a good memory for them to know that they can make right choices even as a teenager!

I don’t know about you, but I am grateful to know that my home is considered a safe haven for “some”!

Tangible and Intangible Happiness

Over the last few months I have been asking myself questions about what goes on around me that involves marriage, my children and people. The more I witness the more I dig for answers. Right now at this moment I am amazed at what goes on in the life of a human! I have been making notes striving to put it all together so that it makes sense to others. I have been studying about what science, experts, and scholars have known for ages. People are not truly aware of the “other” method or path that brings tangible and intangible happiness!

It’s time For Your Awareness!

I have just started The Daddy-Man Awareness Movement, and I am striving to help individuals understand what makes them feel stuck, what holds them back, and what is needed to make a consistent long-term change. When you are aware you have more control of your life. Your eyes are opened and you can see life clearer. You have a desire to seek for and achieve all the abundance that life has to offer.

Time to now break those bonds !

The Multitude of Habits Cycle

Something to think about today. I learned this principle from my mentor. If you are struggling with something that your child or children are doing, it is because of their multitude of habits. Now how did they develop their multitude of habits? Was it from you the parent? Was it from their peers? Habits don’t just appear. They grow! I now have an understanding of why my children struggle and have struggled.

Because of my multitude of habits, I have overlooked their growing multitude of habits. As I look back over the years there were a lot of signs that I missed, because of my multitude of habits. Nothing just appears out of nowhere! Just like a seed has to start from a beginning. So do habits. Bad or good.

He is an example. My wife and I just recently found out that our daughter has been smoking, and had sex. Where did we go wrong you ask? We developed a habit of ASSUMING that she would make good decisions. We developed habits of ASSUMING that the young ladies that she associated with had good moral values.  

I could go on and on with this. It is because of our(her parents) developed multitude of habits we missed some very important signs.

Last point! If I develop a multitude of bad habits at work chances are I will get fired. My multitude of bad habits affect my children’s progress.

The good thing about all of this is that we can all change by making a Paradigm Shift. A Paradigm is a multitude of habits. It is because of my Paradigm Shift that we were able to find out what she had been doing, and that is why I know that it works and is worth it.

My Daughters Destructive Attitude!

Here we go again with another one of our kids. It would be easy and simple to say that I don’t understand what is going on, but that would be a lie, because I do know what is going on with my children. Another daughter seems to be loosing her way, and going down a destructive path. Until today I really did not know how to help them on their journey of life.

I have had incidents with five of my daughters, and they have been some real barn burners, (this is a family channel:-). I just wanted this daughter to leave my home, and I said I did not care where she went. I did not want her in my presence. That was not a shock to hear that come from me. The farther away the better.

I grew up in a home completely opposite from what my wife and I have created, and I got, shall I say pissed off and quite upset at her actions, and attitude about her actions. I did not, and do not want hose kinds of vibes in my home or around me. So my solution was get her out of my presence. See when someone tells you that they don’t care and has been saying that for the past couple of years despite attempts to help solve the issues, a reaction of leave sounds about right.

Both myself and my wife wanted to grow up in homes where the love was not only seen, but felt and shown through actions. There are too many kids wishing that they had parents that cared as much as we do for our children. She also made a comment of what was the big deal. The very essence of your being screams any bad situation is a big deal. That is when I knew her head was not right. It still did not make me feel any better, but I was willing and able to put it behind me and have us move forward.

Thank goodness for the Paradigm Shift video series, because in one of those videos is where I found the answer to my daughters current mental state. I have been watching those videos for the last two months, because I wanted a change for myself. Little did I know they would be of a greater service else where! It especially helps if you are in tuned to the higher powers to be, and are inspired to go read notes taken from a previous lesson. Now I know how to help my other daughters, and to help my little ones make better choices as they grow up.

I have learned that the mind is very powerful and also very destructive. I have also learned that the mind can be changed for the better. Mine has!

My final statement is take time to prepare for the unexpected, because it will come!

A Childs Bitter Remarks!

I just read a comment on Facebook from a dear friend, about a comment that their child made to both her and her husband. The comment was that the child said that he hated his parents and wished they were dead, and he is only 7. Regardless how this came to be, I don’t feel that statement should ever be made to a mother. Considering that child was carried for months through pain and suffering of mind, body, and soul by its mother. One might say it is deserved or brought it on themselves, or any other excuse. The fact remains this should never come out of a childs mouth to their parents!

That is not healthy behavior, and could possibly lead to other acts of defiance to both parents and to others of society. Children are bringing harm to their parents everyday, and have been for years.  I have never had my children make comments to my face such as that, and I don’t entertain any attitudes that would lead up to those situations.

I guess I am from the old school. You just did not make comments relating to that in any way shape or form without suffering the consequences of that action.

My son use to slap my wife when he was still a toddler and I told her not to let him do that. Her comment was if you hit. Then he would learn to hit also. Well he hit me when she was not around. Before he knew what happened, I gave him three quick pops on his legs and he never hit anyone else again. I feel a child can be chastised without being physical at times, but there are times when shock treatment is necessary. I wonder how many imprisonments could have been avoided by currect discipline. Notice I said CORRECT discipline. The dicipline has to properly fit the actions of the child.

I repeat my original statement. No child is justified in vocally expressing their hate to their mother!
