(Note: recommended resources refer to products listed below)
1. Suffering is an inescapable part of life on Earth. You can, however, stay alert for the silver linings and use them to evolve and serve others. (resource #1, 3, 5a, 6, 7)
2. Your time on Earth is truly just a blink of an eye in the span of eternity. Recalling that helps you weather any temporary storms you encounter. (#1, 3, 5f, 6, 7)
3. Although it seems “so real” and solid, your earth-experience is actually more like a dream, a transient thought, a virtual reality experience while most of your essence is always Home/Heaven/the Really Real Place. (#1, 3, 5b, 6, 7)
4. Getting back to your center is a unique process for each person. There is no “one size fits all” solution. Find your path with heart. (resource #5a, 5d, 5f, 6, 7)
5. No matter how tough your life has been, you don’t have to look very far to find someone with even more difficult challenges. You can heal your pain, in part, by using it to become more compassionate and powerful in helping others.
6. You are an integral and eternal part of Life Itself. You are one with the One and part of Source Energy/God right now and always. (#1, 3, 4, 6, 7)
5. You can only sense a very small fragment of the greater reality that explains life’s apparent mysteries and injustices. To expand your awareness, consider using meditation, prayer, time in nature, yoga, chanting, time with kindred spirits, spiritual study and worship, and other centering practices. (#3, 5a, 5f, 5g, 6, 7, 8)
6. You are never alone. Whether you sense it or not, you are always assisted, guided, and loved more than you can imagine. Remembering this helps you know you are a WISP (wise, infinite, special, and powerful and live accordingly. (#5e, 6, 7)
7. It’s important to have a support team of kindred spirits. Start with close family and friends. Visit places where awakening souls might frequent: Unity, Centers for Spiritual Living, and other enlightened “churches,” meditation and yoga classes, service organizations, nature outing groups, self-improvement classes, etc.
8. When you do “sin” or miss the mark, repent. That means: say you’re sorry, make amends outwardly or inwardly, and do better the next time. (5a, 5c, 6, 7)
9. Even though it may not seem like it at times, you have everything you need to survive and even thrive through life’s greatest challenges. Another way of saying this is, “God never puts more on you than you can handle.” (#5a, 5f, 6, 7, 8)
10. Breathing exercises are a time-tested and powerful way to improve your consciousness and help you sense the greater reality. Methods include chanting, singing, exercise, pranayama, love-making, and holistic breathing (#5f, 6, 7)
11. Adversity always presents opportunities for growth and service. Your task is to remember this and stay alert for the blessings. (#5c, 5d, 6, 7, 8)
12. Look for “everyday people,” heroes and heroines who are “strong as a bear.” They can inspire/energize/awaken you by their very presence.
13. Always reach for the highest feeling thought you can imagine. That will increase your energy from lower-energy emotions (sadness, bitterness, anger, depression, etc.) to higher ones (peace, joy, gratitude, love, enthusiasm (#5a, 5f, 6 7, 8)
14. Post positive sayings around your house where you’ll see them often. Examples are: Life isn’t happening TO you, it’s happening FOR you! Choose Life! My life is unfolding perfectly! The universe is friendly! I’m an important part of Source Energy/God/Universe right now and always! I can handle anything with style! Suffering is inevitable, but misery is optional. I’m going to shine—no matter what is going on around me! My earth-experience is a totally safe, meaningful, and magnificent adventure amidst forever!
15. When “sad and bad” times occur, look more deeply. Why might you, as a soul, have volunteered to participate in that? What are the silver linings, the ways in which you can grow and brighten the lives of others? (#5a, 5b, 5c, 5f, 6, 7)
16. Optimally care for your body/mind, the temple of your soul, so you can impeccably play your roles in this brief play we call a human experience. (#2)
17. Know that your and every life story has an eventual happy ending. To more vividly remember this, enjoy uplifting and inspiring books, movies, art, and nature. You’re the director of your life’s movie, so create it the way YOU want. (5a, 5c, 5f, 6, 7)
18. When you “lose” a loved one, job, health, money, etc., you can make your life an even greater work of ART by choosing to focus on:
A = appreciation for the experience and great memories and blessings from it
R = realization that life is never-ending, but often changing and it’s all good/God
T = transform each part of your life for the better to heal and transform
