Go create something today!

You can change what you see. You don't have to be trapped by it.

Nothing has to remain the way it is, and nothing is the way it is forever unless and until you say so. You really are in charge of your day-to-day experience. Really. (Neale Donald Walsh, author)

Started writing again, and what I have learnt is that we, all of us, were born to create! All, every single one of us put on this earth, have the ability to create! Creation is our birthright! Why do we spend time tearing down, running from our creative power, trying to fix life and people and things? Because of fear! We are afraid of mostly our own power! We are afraid of the unknown, what people would say, what they think, how we're going to survive! Fear changes everything!
But hey, fear is there and if we play into it life will be boring and stressful as hell!

Create something today, do something with the power that you were given by the Universe, it could be a cake, a mug of mauby ( that's a type of drink from Trinidad with a bitter taste but somehow I love the thing!), the creation doesn't have to be earth shattering its just something that stirs a passion in you, something that makes you feel good, makes the world a better place!
And when you create it let it go! Stop worrying about it, if it's good, if its successful, what people would say, here we go again!! Create it, love it, let it go and create again!
 There is no need to strive and struggle and stress! The supreme creator only creates good! And we are all part of the supreme!
Peace!!
Oh, the book will be out early 2015, stay tuned!!

Who told you that you're not enough?


What’s driving your habit to improve? Are you fixing your flaws, or are you exploring your potential? Are you inviting the real you to emerge, or are you trying to cure your so-called shortcomings? DLP

Thank you Chela Davidson for pointing this out to me! Big love!
We’re so inside it that it’s almost impossible to imagine what we’d do with our time if we weren’t trying to make more money, look more perfect, acquire more stuff or be mo’ better. So what would happen if we were actually operating from a place of sufficiency rather than lack? Would we let ourselves go? Would we lose all drive? Would we not buy anything ever again? Well, we would probably stop associating sugar water with happiness, that’s for damn sure.
 
This question, that comes in many forms, is posed a lot as rebuttal: If I truly believed I was enough and I had enough, wouldn’t I just become complacent? Lazy? Nothing more than a disgraceful lump of everything I’ve been working my tail off not to degenerate into?
  No.
 Experiencing adequacy, sufficiency, and self-acceptance doesn’t make us complacent, they make us brave; they give us a view beyond ourselves to stretch into with gifts in hand. They give us a foundation of wholeness from which to express ourselves and offer our care and creativity.
 It is impossible to have a healthy relationship with someone who has no boundaries, with someone who cannot communicate directly and honestly. Learning how to set boundaries is a necessary step in learning to be a friend to ourselves. It is our responsibility to take care of ourselves - to protect ourselves when it is necessary.
 
Operating from a place of sufficiency, feeling our own adequacy and not being identified with lack, all the while still growing our capacities, exploring our limitations and moving toward something beyond ourselves, requires us to be able to hold the paradox of it all. And yes, it is a paradox. Complete as we are AND creating, expanding and serving from that completeness

 Peace!

The Creator works through a rested mind

For everything there is a season.

Hey awesome folks. Just about to board a plane again and wanted to touch base. So far I've been working and writing. I learnt on this trip about balance. A time and place for everything.  A time to work and a time to play. And when things are off balance what happens? It all falls down! So tip the scales. Balance it. The creator works through a rested mind.
Peace!

Raise your own standards

Let go or be dragged.... Less Brown


Hello awesome people
Checking in from the windy city of Chicago. What did I learn today? Well, simply put, my responsibility, my life! The quality of my choices whether conscious or unconscious, will reflect in the life that I currently live. Its really that simple. So the choice is and remains to be responsible, be as conscious as possible, raise the standard, my own standards. And let go!
Peace!

What's the worst that can happen?

The world’s greatest lie is that you lose control of your life, that you have to obey some rules that are not your rules Paul Coelho

I'm waiting to board the flight to Chicago!  I always liked the Windy City (in the summer!lol) sorry Chi town peeps, your city it lovely but when its cold its ruff!!

So just checking in and reminding you to take a risk to live your dream, write the book, open the business, bake the cake, make the call, send the text, change the job, take the course!
What's the worse that can happen?

Peace out!

It gets better with authenticity


In this right here moment, I accept and BELIEVE that there is nothing I lack - NO thing I need added unto me to make me complete - and NO thing that is wrong, bad, rotten, unloved, and amiss about me.  God made me and She does NOT make mistakes.  I am perfect! Peter Ripley



It gets better with authenticity! That's what I learnt yesterday at the book signing event in NYC! As I do this more often, it gets better when I am just me and being me is so easy! So how do you show up in your life?
I'm showing up as me every single time...

There was a band that started the event with music and they were rocking! Steel drums, djembe drums, bass and guitar! The folks there were digging the music! It set a really nice vibe for the rest of the night!

A piece was read from the book, one that I couldn't remember and it set me off thinking, I should really sit and read this book again! I listened and was interested in hearing what other people resonated with in the book!

I am really super grateful for the opportunity to share my story! Give thanks!

On to Chicago....
Peace!!

Ready and rearing to go!

No work of love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now. Alan Watts, author

Today is the day! The day, the day, the day for another Book Signing event at Nicolas Brooklyn! All I can say right now is that I am humbled, grateful, ready, rearing and excited!
Boom!

Everyone has a story

Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But since no one was listening, everything must be said again."—AndrĂ© Gide


Yesterday's event was at the Moth, totally awesome experience! The Moth is a place where you are allowed to tell YOUR story! I heard stories yesterday that made me chuckle, cry, laugh, clap, think! And I have learnt that we ALL have a story and I am making mine an empowering one!
Big thank you to Ms Tricia Clarke who introduced me to the Moth and will be reading at the event tomorrow
If you are anywhere close, feel free to come and say hi!
Peace!

I am here for a purpose...


I am here for a purpose - Louise Hay

Day 2 NYC
NYC is full of lessons! I have learnt acceptance, the power of positive thinking and showing up as you every single time!

I've had a few meetings and a few rejections to go along with it! Listen the thing hurt! Initially, I was sour, salty, quiet, pensive! The thing hurt, did I already say that?
Yea so what's next? The lessons started kicking in and that is when I know that I have progressed!
I eat No's like Cherioos, No means next opportunity and man's rejection is God's protection, I started singing that mantra to myself from about an hour after the "salty" behavior

Rejection happens, what I have learnt is the story we give it is usually worse than what it really is, I have also learnt that it is a fuel for going again, taking a pause and looking at things with fresh eyes,listening to you gut feeling and obeying what it tells you!

Two more events today and a little more wise!
Peace!
