Is It Worth It?

I remember a Friend of Mine asking Me this question “Is it Worth it?”. At first I really never really under stood the question, but more recently I know the deeper meaning behind it.

Let’s say You desire a new automobile. You found one You really like, it costs approximately $50,000. You have a automobile at the moment that has served You well over the years. You receive a income of $55,000 per year, and have expenses of approximately three quarters Your yearly salary. The automobile You currently use functions rather well. The new auto You desire is twice the purchase amount of Your current auto. If You work the math out, You have approximately $18,000 a year to finance the auto You desire.

Now forget the above paragraph. It is not even relevant in the choice of purchasing that new auto. It really comes down to “Is it Worth it?”. Do You feel as though this new auto will serve You better than Your current auto? Do You feel You deserve a new auto? What are the real reasons You desire this new auto? The list is endless… What I Am getting at here is, Worth is not all about what dollar amount is attached to that item! What I may find useful, You may find useless! And vice versa. It is all based on what You require it for, moment to moment.

Make choices in Your Life based on Your requirements, and Enjoy the process! Who cares what others may think or say. If it is Worth it to You, that is all that really matters!

Enjoy!

Being Original

This came to Me the other day, and I was wondering is this even possible any more? ‘Being Original’ that is. I pondered it for a bit, and realized that “Yes it is!”. We are all ‘Being Original’ in every moment, even when some one believes “You copied that from some one else!”.

Take for example Me doing this website, it has and is Being done all over the World as You read this. But what makes it Original is it is coming from Me! I Am unique, as are You, and any one else for that matter. No thing can be copied or duplicated exactly, EVER!!! This is rather powerful, just when You may have thought every thing has been done, You can be rest assured that it never has or ever will be.

You may try and find things that contradict these statements, and that is fine. It is virtually impossible to have a exact moment happen, again, and again, and so forth… That in truth is calming to Me. It means We are always growing! And I do not know about You, but I feel growth is better than it’s polar opposites.

So what is the point of this article, well in the past I was rather frustrated with many people re-quoting what people had said in the past, and thought to My Self, the person who is currently re-quoting does not fully know if the so called ‘Original’ quote is word for word. And there is no way of verifying this, for every thing in the past that is recorded is done from memory, and if You may not know memory is never exact due to the fact each one of Us perceive things truly different! The way I see or think some thing, will always be different than the way You see or think it. And We will never know how any one sees or thinks some thing because it is ultimately unique to You only.

So next time some one says “Be Original!”, You can think to Your Self “I Am!” 🙂

Amandigami

My GirlFriend Amanda, has really delved into crafts lately. I was thinking, and came up with the idea that She can make various origami shapes. The most practical one I seen that She made was a small gift box, that can hold any thing from a gift card to a set of ear rings. If You wish to have Amanda make You some thing origami style, then contact Matt @ either 780.604.8649, or info@umattr.info

ChristMas

When You break the word Christmas up, You have Christ- Son of God, and Mas- Celebration. So in essence the celebration of Christ. Many may say Christmas has lost its true meaning, I say “It is what it is”, another holiday to spend time with Family, and Friends. I agree it has become very commercialized, and materialistic, but what these days is not?

What seems weird to Me is, why do We require a excuse to visit with Family and Friends? It seems as though most holidays are used as a excuse, when You can choose to use any moment, not just designated traditional dates. I use to in the past get really worked up over how materialistic Christmas has become, and I boycotted buying and receiving gifts altogether. Now I just allow it to be what ever it is, just another time of year to visit with Family and Friends.

One could get all worked up, and stressed over how much money to spend on gifts for others, but why? It is all Your choice on how much to spend, or not spend. You are in control of what You do. Yeah there are statistics, and opinions on how much money people will spend on average for gifts. I say “Who cares?!”. Money is a transfer of energy, when You truly think about it. If You have good intent on what You use money for, then that is what it will do. The other is also true as well. It all comes back to You choosing what to do, and not to do. Either way, if You allow things to bother You, then it is ‘You’ that has the issue, not any thing out there.

This is not a write up on whether Christ really existed, or not. And whether Christmas has lost its true meaning. Like I said “It is what it is!”, and You make it what it is. The one and only thing I get from the new testament is “We are all capable of every thing Jesus did!”, and that is the main focus of the bible, I believe! So enjoy every moment You have while alive, and do not sweat the small stuff, which I feel is every thing that is!

Enjoy!

*Note – There are many cultures and religions that celebrate some thing similar to Christmas. The main theme of them all is to ‘Celebrate’, and I find that rings true for all other holidays in various cultures. There is no right and wrong to which one You celebrate, the main thing is You Live, Love, and Appreciate all that is in Life!

Teachings from Animals

It dawned on Me a short while back, that animals(non-human) are teaching Us a lot We might not be aware of. If You have observed any animals, they do not have a ego. For example a dog will not seek revenge on You if You accidentally misplaced it’s favorite toy some where. Also have You noticed animals are naked, and not ashamed of it!

Next time You are near a animal, focus on it’s breathing, You will notice they breathe with a consistent rhythm, that have very brief pauses between inhale and exhale. My interpretation on this is because they are completely anchored to nature, completely operating in the present moment always. Now You give it a go. Find a quiet place, sit with Your back in a straight upright position on preferably a chair. Plant Your feet on the floor in front of You, with Your hands gently rested on Your lap. Once You are comfortable, and no thing will disturb You, for about 10-15 minutes breathe in and out through Your nose only. Breathe loud enough so You can hear it, and keep it consistent with very brief pauses between inhale and exhale. Now the whole point of this exercise is NOT to meditate, but to stay fully present with the experience. For a while it may be difficult to do this exercise for 10-15 minutes, but with practice it will get easier. It is recommend You do this once in the morn, and once in the eve. Your first time doing this may feel a bit awkward, that is why it is very important You do this by Your Self. No one has to know why or when You do these, it is some thing that is for You and only You. It is a way to get connected back to nature, with out leaving Your body, like what most meditations get You to do.

What You may notice while doing this exercise, is thoughts will come up, such as “I can be doing more important things than this!”, or “This is ridiculous!”. That will be Your ego communicating with You. The best advice I can give You when this happens is, do not try and force these thoughts away, simply allow them to come up, and be aware of them. Eventually they will pass, and You will notice more pleasant thoughts in Your mind.

I have two cat’s. One is about 7 years old, and the other about 2 years old. Cats are easy to notice the connectedness they have with nature. When they purr, it is bliss to them. They breathe as I wrote about above. And as most of You already know, they are able to relax for many hours a day. Some thing I know a lot of Us could benefit from doing as often as possible too.

Enjoy!

Tax Free Living

This is possible! And I can show You how. I Am involved in two programs that are completely tax Free! First of all You must under stand this principle “Gifting”. We Give and Receive Gifts often, it is some thing Us Humans have been doing since We were young. Now these two systems work on that basis. Think of it this way, when You Give or Receive a Gift, do You submit that info of the Gift to the government? NO! What types of Gifts do We Give or Receive, well the list is endless, but amongst the list is money. These systems are Simple and legal! Call Your local tax office and ask them questions about Gifts, “How much can You Give or Receive from some one before You have to declare it on Your tax forms?”

You may think this is a scheme or scam of some sort, well if You truly believe that, then no matter how much proof or explaining any one may provide You, You will not feel comfortable with any of these systems. And I recommend You stick to traditional means of Receiving money. I admit, I was a little skeptical at first with these systems, but with further investigation of them, they turn out to Be Win Win systems!

The second systems is more for the individual that can fathom Receiving $150 to $10,000 a day! To find out more about this system click on the link below.
