KISS

Kiss your indecision goodbye. Kiss your complaints or conflict goodbye.  Kiss fault lines goodbye.  From now on, all you have to do is KISS life.

KISS – a simple formula to navigate life.

Keep

It

Short

Sweet

Keep your words and intention short and sweet, meaning live from your empathetic heart.  Instead of talking to someone in a raging diatribe, KISS it. Say what you mean simply but absent venom.  Managing any relationship can present challenges, but the sweetness of life offers the opportunity to regulate emotions and re-assign fault.

When you KISS a decision, it lifts you beyond the messiness of constant quandary.  Think about the choices you have when posed with a personal challenge and then think short and sweet of the outcomes after which it is time to make a decision.

Japanese use the term arugamama to describe a sense of acceptance.  KISS is your arugamama – you accept what you need to confront and then use simple, sweet active steps to live whole.

You are whole, now KISS life.

Question 29: How honest are you?

It’s In Your DNA

Do you want to heal your heart? Serve from the heartDo you want to connect with your soul?  Do you want to experience pure, radiant joy?

Really? Do you want to experience these things?

The answer lies in your DNA.  The ability to practice DNA -Do Not Argue- heals hearts, connects you to your soul, and allows you to experience pure, radiant joy.  To many, arguing seems the only way they can make a point or “feel” the pseudo power of dominance.  WRONG!

Exercising the healing practice of DNA-Do Not Argue is the real power that each person has.  There is no weakness in DNA, instead you feel the ascendancy of knowing who you are and what values are inviolable.  DNA is strength.

Someone disagrees with you, DNA.  Offer your truth, if necessary, and move on.  You are wrongly accused, DNA.  Seek justice using facts, you will prevail.  You are supposedly disrespected, shuck it off. Life is too short to spend it arguing over the mundane.

When you live from your heart and soul centered strong self and put that dominate practice into your daily actions and decisions, your true powerful DNA sense of being ascends.  That is the path to a happier, truer, more wholesome you.

“The senses of your soul help you express your whole truth, and being true to yourself takes work, because it’s so easy to get sidetracked and influenced by others.  It’s easy to get caught up in the drama.  You have to put in the effort and stand strong every day to honor your own ideas, feelings, intuitions and aspiration” ~Marc and Angel Hack

How do you live your DNA life? 

Monday Miracle: Hate Well

“Do not tolerate the thing that you have a no-tolerance rule against.” ~Henry Cloud

There is such a thing as justifiable hatred.  Successful people know this and practice it judiciously.  To hate well means that there are some hard-fast character, social, and mental rules that you mark as inviolable.  You stand against racism or oppression no matter what.  You stand again lying or manipulation no matter what.  You stand against the act, not the person.

Dr. Henry Cloud, in his book 9 Things You Simply Must Do, writes that hating well always means that you have a loving or kind response to the person but evince a very strong stance on the issue.  Strong well placed hatred means unmovable, non-equivocal standards without meanness or malice toward the person.  In this way, strong non-judgmental values allow you to operate around the things that you hate without being infected by them while you work to remedy the situation or help someone.

Become a person who objectively chooses to hate well.  This allows you to discard the charged emotions that often damage or destroy the valued good you intend.  Then, you will preserve your integrity, shorten any stress, and contribute to well-being in your relationships.

Subjective hatred destroys.  When you choose to hate a person or an act and then react venomously, you are not separating what you value from either the person or situation.  Dr. Cloud says this is global hatred. In essence because you have been offended by a person, all people who look like that person or even more broadly is the same gender as the offender is treated malevolently.  Wrong!

Hate well instead.  Separate the charged emotions and previous pain you have internalized from the current person or situation that reminds you of a former space of injustice.  Subjective hatred often projects onto others angry, unjustified disdain and harsh judgment whereas objective hatred is precise in its assessment and addresses the infraction in ways that preserve the dignity of the person.

Hatred, as a healing and appropriate response to anything which infringes on your values, is good.  Either you stand for something or you perish for the lack of standing.  Those who hate poverty but not the impoverished hate well.  Those who hate hunger but not those who hunger hate well.  Those who hate profanity but do not curse the curser too hate well. 

Distinguish what you hate. Stand firm on the issue, and graciously on the person.

Tell us what you hate and how you make the choice to objectively hate well.  Send me your comments.
