Before we get to the solution it’s important to know a little something about reality. All energy, including you, are connected to the field of potentiality, which means if there is something you want, the potential for that exists. To keep this simple, your mind has established some very strong patterns over your lifetime. If you have done any mindfulness or concentration meditations you’ll know the basics of how to use your mind to get what you want. When you’re not getting what you want ask yourself more specifically what you want and when you want it by. Sometimes your body needs rest or nutrition or hydration in order to summon the energy needed to focus. There’s a better way to handle great moments in your life, a way that is much more empowering and which will manifest more of the good stuff that you’re experiencing. When you focus on the blooming flowers, you will see, manifest, and experience more blooming flowers.
Keep thinking about those good outcomes, but for maximum power, work to cultivate belief in them too. I’d love to hear your thought on this in the comments below or on Facebook or Twitter. When stress anger frustration comes take a break to breathe and let go of clinging onto how you think things should be in that moment. Instead of lamenting that things are not the way you want them right now, imagine what you DO want.
That stranger may have a serious health issue, or lost a loved one, or lost their job, or even just had a really bad night’s sleep.
Assume the position of comradeship with your fellow humans, that you are all in this life together, each with our own struggles. When you address issues with your fellow humans, do it with the utmost kindness, as if you were giving it to yourself if you were in their situation. One of the best ways to increase happiness in your life is to increase kindness to yourself and to others. In all your actions with yourself whether it’s bathing, eating, going to bed at night, meditating, and so on, let your motivation be kindness and caring love for yourself. Create some kind of reminder – sticky notes or a string around your wrist or a few alarms on your phone. You take in the vibrant varied greens of the forest, the deep brown of the soil, the bright spots of colored flowers, yellows, purples, and pinks. Suddenly sounds are muffled and all is oh so quiet, so soothingly quiet, as you swirl in spiraling circles to the river floor.
There may be some river plants or microorganism that attach to you deriving some minerals from you. You are here for a very long time as a pebble enjoying this time in your current manifestation. Read through it and imagine this sequence in your mind with as few words as possible, but instead just “feeling” each part of the story as you become the pebble for a little while.
For each activity ask yourself if you are spending the amount of time that you want, that is good for your body and soul. Hours that are unproductive due to you should leave and get some rest but instead in a state of exhaustion you just keep plugging away. Bringing your children to activities you think are just being busy, not truly loved by your child, and therefore not adding meaningful value to your child. To counter these you might determine: I will say yes to 1 social event per week or per month and only if it meets certain criteria. Perhaps you find that you are spending too much time on things are aren’t adding much value to your life such as TV, web surfing. If you examine it you may realize: “Watching TV, flipping channels, is not fulfilling and not very relaxing. Think about what is necessary to know and what is mere entertainment, filler, and escape from actually living your life. If the news you receive doesn’t add value to your life, is it actually necessary or at least do you need it as frequently?
The places where you eliminate non-valuable activities can be replaced with valuable activities, the things you really want to be doing, that move you towards your dreams. If you had 6 to 12 things you wanted to add to your life, you could have them solidly incorporated within 6 to 12 months.
Visualize how your life will look and feel in one year from now when you’ve made these changes.

Over 10 months I’ve made lots of changes to diet, exercise, detoxing my body, and most recently “detoxing” my emotions and boosting my spirit. Utilize meditation or simple quiet time to reflect on your situation in a state of peace and calm – always assuring yourself that all will be okay no matter what happens. You may even set aside valuable activities (such as hobbies) for a period of time in order to learn new things, and establish new habits, or take actions that are necessary to help you initially change direction. If you found this helpful please share it with your friends or let us know your thoughts in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter. Well I have felt that way and I did an experiment that was pretty successful in fixing the problem.
I was in a little rut of feeling kind of blah and I wanted to get back to feeling how I felt I was younger, when I thought I had no limits. There was just too much to do to even consider taking out my lightness and joy to play with for a little while.
I mean you’re not allowed to be a grownup, getting things done, be productive, AND be happy, now, are you?
Yes, there are moments of pain in life but even those are better when we can be mindful instead of worried about the future.
So I started with mindfulness (this was the book that really set me on this great path – The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh) and that was good.
When I nurture this habit of smiling, being silly, being present in this moment, the greater this Tendency Towards Happiness becomes. Place “Smile” sticky note reminders on your mirrors, in your car, and in different rooms you frequent. If you think this is a good idea, please share it with your friends or send us a comment below or via Facebook or Twitter. A blistering version of a€?Stagger Leea€? occurs seven tracks deep into Danielle Miragliaa€™s most recent album, Box of Troubles. So it is that Danielle Miraglia puts her own stamp on a€?Stagger Lee.a€? Of course, ita€™s not her own composition, but surely a cornerstone of her repertoire. An interview with this refreshingly affable, down-to-earth performer reveals how she became the player and writer she is today.
While her musical aspirations took a back seat during her college career, there was still some dabbling. When Danielle left Emerson, she felt lost for a while, describing herself as a€?unfocused.a€? She wasna€™t able to translate a degree in writing into meaningful employment. Danielle had a fantasy about moving to Arizona and starting a whole new life out there, getting a fresh start. Her first songs, coming off the dissolution of a relationship were (again) a€?cheesy breakup songs,a€? she said. At that point, she was a€?writing a ton,a€? and within about six months she enlarged her repertoire to six decent songs and another six months to beginning her first recording.
In addition to the strong, steady thumb beat on the bass strings, Danielle also uses a hollow foot stomp, sometimes amplified. I asked her about the guitars shea€™s favored and she mentioned that the Yamaha her boyfriend got her in high school was a nice beginnera€™s guitar (he took it back when they broke up a€” song opportunity!).
Danielle feels that her first two CDs were of little consequence a€” a part of the learning process a€” and that her recording career started in earnest with the album, Nothing Romantic. In a€?You dona€™t Know Nothin,a€™a€? a reaction to some right-wing radio talk shows, Danielle flashes metaphoric sharpness.
The a€?eight oa€™clock shadowa€? then displays his own ignorance, condemning abortion rights marchers on the bara€™s television.
Although I first got cold-cocked by a€?Stagger Leea€? and a€?Loud Talkera€? from Daniellea€™s latest CD, Box of Troubles, there are other standouts.
Wea€™re ecstatic that wea€™ve caught up to this supremely intelligent and talented performer.
Danielle has had purists disagree with her about not following original styles note-for-note.
You can have the best of intentions and desires to change your mood (or attain whatever solution needed for your problem), but until you change your habit of mind, you just won’t get there. The good news is you can change those habits to serve you better, but you’ll have to put in a little work up front and then do some regular maintenance ongoing.
You get so attached to your anger over what has happened or is happening that you keep hating those circumstances over and over in your mind.
Pay close attention to all your thoughts and make sure they are supporting your goal to manifest good things. Yup, a shoe dropping out of the sky right on your head – allowing you to say “Ah, there you are.
When you focus on the good things in life and the good things you want the more you will see, manifest, and experience good things. Instead be with what you are doing now… and watch how you may find a small smile arising!
If you have thoughts on using this strategy, please share in the comments below or on Facebook or Twitter.
For some people they take their frustrations out on their pets. Whichever you are, this is a great exercise to develop the kindness reflex.
This can be difficult or awkward at first, but if you’ve done the other three practices, you’ll be ready for this one. You feel kindness and appreciation being directed towards you, and all at once you are launched, defying gravity for a short time. You land gently with an easy slow motion bump sending a few grains of river sand up around you. Oh, there are the moments of laughter and a few smiles, but overall life seems like a treadmill. And so to meet these “shoulds” we run around like crazy doing this, buying that, and never really feeling like we’re living the life we want. You could observe and record your daily activities for a few days if you choose, but likely you can just put together some quick estimates to get an overview of how you are spending your precious time. Download & print these Daily Activities and write down next to each one how much time you spend on each per day.

You don’t have to have exact numbers in each of these categories, but give each one some thought.
It’s just a habit, a compulsion, and escape from my worries and my disappointment that my life isn’t more fulfilling.
Fill the cup of your life purposefully first with things that are meaningful, and the filler activities will naturally fall by the wayside. As you discover new answers to problems you may uncover limiting beliefs that you’ve held and simultaneously discover new beliefs that make more sense for you, that empower you. Even while you are changing and you think you’ve learned everything you need to know about your situation keep the channels open for continued learning. I wanted to recapture that time in my life when I felt carefree and when optimism, delight, and happiness bubbled up as easily as natural spring water. Serious studies in college, high pressured corporate job, the huge responsibility of the mortgage, difficulties in marriage, losing a loved one, daily responsibilities of being a single parent, running households, being self-employed, primal fears of death and losing loved ones. My life is full of lots of very good stuff, but all this adult responsibility and worry kind of trained my mind to be serious, responsible, planning, worrying, etc. I wanted that automatic carefree feeling and lightness of heart (like kids and special grownups have). These happy people seem to smile a lot and I knew that when you change your physiology that your body chemistry will actually follow that.
Tom Bianchi, her husband and producer on this album, uses an electric violin, a blues harp and a sinuous lead electric guitar with a wah-wah pedal to sustain the cloud of doom that hangs over this historic piece. Her family lived in Everett until she was 8, then moved to nearby Revere, where she grew up. As kids will, she and some friends tried to form a band, even though no one actually played an instrument. She took a couple of lessons from the aforementioned frienda€™s father who was going to teach her friends to play their instruments. Using an acoustic guitar, shea€™d get together with a friend back home to play and write songs. Her first stop was the open mic at The Kendall Cafe in Cambridge (now closed), just to a€?check it out.a€? She saw people who were very advanced and some raw beginners. However, a€?They had grit to them.a€? Although she cringes when she looks back on her early writing, she still feels that the songs werena€™t all that bad considering her level of development.
She was a fan of the late Janis Joplin and would belt her songs out, Janis-style,without giving thought to vocal dynamics or microphone control.
Additionally, she studied the Stefan Grossman transcriptions (written and audio) of the guitar of Mississippi John Hurt. Shea€™s been told, a€?If youa€™re not doing it exactly the way they did it, youa€™re not doing it.a€? For Danielle, ita€™s all about enjoying it and getting into the a€?feela€? of it [we agree].
Although shea€™d seen performers like Chris Smither use this sort of device, she never intended to copy it. She later got an Ovation, then a Guild and then found her first love in a Gibson [lots of blues in those Gibsons].
Thata€™s about when we made her acquaintance (as well as taking note of her impact at the 2009 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference). She uses a nimble Mississippi John Hurt-style fingerpicking pattern for this philosophical gem.
Tongue-in-cheek, she asks for a drum machine, and, in a reference to Robert Johnson, Tell me where the roads cross, Ia€™m ready to sell my soul. Ita€™s a plus that finding out how good a writer she is now reinforces our first impression of a highly energetic blues artist.
Some Christians feel that in this story, Jesus was offering His hearers a glimpse of what existence in the afterlife is like.
He desired to stimulate their deepest thought and contemplation, and He knew that if He spoke too literally, certain of His hearers would quickly forget His words.
The Jews had been blessed above measure by a knowledge of God and his plan of salvation for all mankind.
Instead, they considered them as a€?dogsa€? that would have to be satisfied with the spiritual crumbs falling from their mastersa€™ tables. Only moments before relating this parable, Jesus had rebuked the Pharisees for their spiritual conceit. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. Based on this belief, some people teach that those who are consigned to the fiery torments of hell will never stop burning throughout all eternity. Their bodies obviously came along, for we find the rich man lifting up his eyes, and desiring to have his tongue cooled by a drop of water from the finger of Lazarus who was resting, as we have seen, in Abrahama€™s bosom.
Instead, He was referring to the unfaithfulness of the Jews regarding their assigned responsibility. Notice that the Scriptures choose the strongest possible words to describe the complete annihilation of the wicked. The apparition of Samuel told Saul, a€?Tomorrow shalt thou and thy sons be with me.a€? Saul committed suicide on the battlefield the next day.
Obviously, a€?psuchea€? could not mean soul in this instance, or people could be said to lose their soul for Christa€™s sake. Put in the word a€?lifea€? instead of a€?soula€? and the text makes perfect sense in its consistency with the rest of the Bible. Maggots that fed on the dead bodies were constantly destroying what might escape the flames.
With the fires of Gehenna burning before their eyes, Jesus could not have spoken a more graphic word to the Pharisees to describe the final total destruction of sinners. But in this case, the word a€?carcassesa€? is used, revealing the fact that the fire consumes dead bodies, not disembodied souls. When the soldiers came just before sunset to take the bodies off the cross, Jesus was already dead (John 19:32-34).
He asked, a€?Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.a€? Thata€™s exactly when he will be remembered and taken into that Kingdom.
Paul realized that one did not pass instantly from being clothed with this tabernacle into being clothed with our house from heaven. It has been preached that Christ actually descended into the lower regions of the earth and preached to lost souls that were imprisoned in some purgatory or limbo.
The answer is plainly given in verse 20, a€?When once the long-suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing.a€? So, the preaching was actually done while the ark was being builta€”during the preaching of Noah to that antediluvian world.
There is absolutely nothing here that indicates that Jesus departed from the body during the time He was dead to go to any subterranean place to minister to wicked spirits.
In Exodus 21:1-6 the Hebrew servant was to serve his master a€?for ever,a€? but it was obviously only as long as he lived. Christ is called a€?a priest for evera€? (Hebrews 5:6), yet after sin is blotted out Christa€™s work as a priest will end.
If you can’t get rest or sustenance right now, use the power of your mind to hold you over until you can get restoration.

You know that someday you may be down to just a bit of sand or maybe you’ll become a part of the river plants or part of a clam that eats you where you will enjoy your next manifestation.
What if you knew that once you climbed the hill and descended into the valley of your changes, that you could experience a more fulfilling and joyous life? We figure we’ll live the life of our dreams when we retire, but tomorrow is never guaranteed, so why do we put off our happiness?
We are told not that we already are someone, beautiful in the eyes of a loving Creator, but that we have to be someone.
There are blank spots on the downloadable worksheet where you can add other activity categories. Remember this: you are allowed to be happy today – just as you are, just where you are, just with what you have. It has been so successful that I want to share with you the basic formula I used so that if you have things you need to change you can begin and slowly over time claimed the life you really want. A good technique for getting at these limiting beliefs (which can be unconscious until you investigate) is called tapping or EFT (emotional freedom technique).
My natural inclination for lightness and joy was tucked away in the bottom drawer most of the time. In fact somewhere along the way they were packed up in a box and put into the basement for even safer storage. The idea of mindfulness is that by staying consciously present as much as you can you’re able to fully experience the joy that is intrinsic to each moment of life. They were truly “easy-going” as in “not needing to control everything.” They could really let go of being so grown-up serious! In the face of stress and difficult people in your life, you need to put even a little more effort in, but the payoff is great and well worth it!
Whatever item you can have with you at all times that can remind you, designate it as your smile reminder. In Galatians 5:22 and 23, meekness is listed as one of the fruits that the Holy Spirit produces in our lives. Danielle had a Casio keyboard; a frienda€™s father played guitar, so it was assumed that hea€™d show others in the group how to play their instruments. There were writing courses of every kind, including journalism, childrena€™s writing and poetry. She figured, a€?OK, I can fit into this mixa€¦ I can pull this off.a€? She signed up to play the following week and found that others were very polite, offering encouragement. It wasna€™t until she got to the open mic of blues master Geoff Bartley at the Cantab Lounge that her mistakes were pointed out. The practice really evolved from using a foot stomp on stage to keep rhythm and provide percussion.
It actually took another year for her to digest and learn what Geoff had taught her.A  a€?It was like I got all the food and then I processed it,a€? she told me.
Others, citing numerous passages of Scripture that seem to contradict the portrayal of heaven and hell contained in this passage, feel that Jesus was teaching an altogether different kind of lesson.
Not only that, but others, for whom certain of His parables contained stern rebuke, would be so angered by straight speaking that they would attempt to silence Him by violence. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. The a€?dogsa€? and sinners, so despised by the self-righteous Pharisees, would enter heaven before they would.
Abraham replies, a€?If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.a€? Verse 31.
As with the parable of the trees and the bramble (Judges 9:8-15), however, serious problems arise with a literal interpretation of the story elements.
And if there is really a great gulf fixed between heaven and hell, how could the rich man possibly have been heard by Abraham? Enough graves have been exhumed in recent years to know that the bodies of the deceased are carried neither to heaven or hell after burial.

As stewards of the special message of truth, they utterly failed to share it with the Gentiles, who were eager to hear it. By the parable of another rich man, He graphically illustrated how they had proven just as unfaithful with spiritual riches as the steward had been unfaithful with physical wealth.
Nowhere do the Scriptures teach that the wicked will continue to suffer in the fires of hell through the ceaseless ages of eternity.
In no way should these clear words be misunderstood by one who honestly desires to know truth. He received his information as second hand from the witch, and only concluded it was Samuel from her description. The contrast isbetween one who can take the physical life, and He who can take away eternal life. In other words, it is a destruction which never ends, because there will be no resurrection from that destruction.
Yet, he hastened to say in the same verse, a€?There shall not be a coal to warm at, nor a fire to sit before it.a€? So the unquenchable fire will go out after it has finished its work. First, even though Jesus told the thief, a€?Verily I say unto thee, To day shaltthou be with me in paradise,a€? three days later He told Mary that He had not yet ascended to His Father. The thieves were very much alive, and their legs were broken to hasten death and to prevent them from escaping. After desiring to be clothed upon with immortality, Paul states that a€?being clothed we shall not be found naked.a€? Verse 3.
It says that Christ suffered once for sin that He might bring us to God by being put to death in the flesh.
The three questions are clearly answered in the text itself, that He preached by the Holy Spirit, He did it while the ark was being prepared, and He did it to the spirits in prison or to those individuals whose sinful lives were bound in the prison house of sin.
Or maybe you need a full day to process and come back to the situation in a strong and compassionate state of mind.
When animals are squawking, if rain comes, even in heavy winds or thunder, you are always okay.
Our style of living here in the West has us living a life in constant motion with no time for reflection and rejuvenation. The screen keeps my body from it’s normal evening function of winding down and easing into restful sleep. And so you find rational excuses like “I don’t have time to change,” “it won’t work,” or just flat out pushing it under the rug in your mind. She credits two older boys, her upstairs neighbors, in helping to add to her musical knowledge. She went back again and again and found a€?a whole new crew of friends.a€? They were a€?on the same wavelength,a€? she said.
On a gig where she needed to use a box for added height, she found herself rhythmically tapping on the box and liking the sound. Although she told me that her husband Tom hosts it now, shea€™s still listed as the host on The Burren website. Danielle developed a a€?roguea€? mixture of what Geoff taught her and the Grossman transcriptions. Unfortunately, many modern religious teachers have isolated the story from its original context and used it as a device for scaring people. Only a Jew would pray to a€?Father Abraham,a€? as we find the rich man doing later in the story. Perhaps more disturbing, how could the saints enjoy the comforts of heaven while enduring the cries of the wicked being tormented? Those who accept Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice will live forever; those who do not accept Jesus will die. There is a fire reserved for the wicked, but a fire so hot it will utterly destroy all who are engulfed by it. Do we have a genuine love for those around us, and have we invited them to share our spiritual inheritance? Here is proof in the words of Jesus: a€?And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. So whatever Christ did in preaching during this period of time, He did it through or by the Holy Spirit. The text says here a€?to the spirits in prison.a€? Throughout the Bible, we find this terminology used in describing those who are bound in the prison house of sin. Are you focused on the blooming flowers or are you missing out on those because you are so preoccupied with the fading flowers? But that little bugger won’t go away and will keep bothering you like a pebble in your shoe until you address it. Instead of automatically thinking “I need a new job” or “I need a new partner” consider what you are bringing or not bringing to that situation.
In the Greek language, the wordA prautesA (a€?meeknessa€?) conveys the idea of a high and noble ideal to be aspired to in onea€™s life. Danielle and another friend, Brenda, who Danielle said, a€?has a twisted sense of humor,a€? would write songs with ridiculous lyrics.
For Danielle, they included John Irving (for his humor as well as his dramatic flair), Tim Oa€™Brien (Vietnam War novelist, not the bluegrass performer), satirist David Sedaris and Lorrie Moore (a€?humorous and poignant short storiesa€? a€” Wikipedia). There was an epiphany of sorts in that they both realized life is too short to waste on doing things you have no love for. Later, she asked a friend to follow her design to make a hollow device like a footrest that she could attach to her stool. Also, she mentioned that it seemed less desperate than standing when playing in a noisy bar. For Danielle, they includedA  John Irving (for his humor as well as his dramatic flair), Tim Oa€™Brien (Vietnam War novelist, not the bluegrass performer), satirist David Sedaris and Lorrie Moore (a€?humorous and poignant short storiesa€? a€” Wikipedia).
She finds it fundamentally impossible to repeat someone elsea€™s stylings note-for-note a€” shea€™ll develop her own version instead.
Religious a€?conversionsa€? resulting from a fear of hell as it is depicted in this passage have indeed occurred, but are based on a foundation sorely in need of the strength that comes only from a genuine appreciation of Goda€™s character and a proper understanding of Scripture. Crudena€™s Concordance explains: a€?Our Saviour in the gospels often speaks to the people in parables. Jesus never would have compromised the integrity of the Holy Scriptures by teaching a doctrine contrary to its own overwhelming testimony on the subject. Samuel is described as a€?an old man covered with a mantle.a€? Is this the way immortal souls appear? Not only will their bodies be destroyed in that fire, but also their lives will be snuffed out for all eternity. So how could Jesus assure the thief of being with Him in Paradise that day when they did not both die on a€?that daya€??
You know something needs to change, but for some reason you keep avoiding it – staying busy instead. Is part of the problem in your approach, your effort level, your communication clarity, or not understanding what you real goals are? However the world views her as a blues singer, shea€™s well-prepared for original songwriting. Danielle also studied from an instructional DVD of Mississippi John Hurta€™s guitar style by Happy Traum and John Sebastian that combined video and tablature transcription. Eternally burning fire is not taught anywhere in the Biblea€”not even in the story of the rich man and Lazarus.
In contrast, by active, loving service, our relationship with Christ as well as with others will become stronger and more meaningful.
The question is: How could Jesus tell the thief that he would be with Him in Paradise that day, when He did not go there until three days later?
The time to manifest may be long or short, and taking action towards what you want is important too, but if you think about the outcomes that you want instead of the outcomes that you fear, you will get better results. Once one thing was in place, I researched the next step and I simply addressed them in sequence over time building on each new healthy habit. When she returned home, Danielle began attending open mics, kick-starting what would become her career. I would be putting together help desk manuals, and then Ia€™d write a song about how miserable I was. Perhaps then we will better understand what lessons there are for us in the story of the rich man and Lazarus. He may in fact possess a strong will and a powerful character; he may be a person who has his own opinion.
The male of the species got off easy this time, but that doesna€™t mean she hasna€™t been watching. Then Ia€™d tell someone to re-boot their computer, which is usually the solution to every problem. She tinkered around with some acoustic fingerstyle guitar while in high school, copying selected songs by Randy Rhodes and the band, Heart. Also, the expression a€?eternal firea€? may be understood in terms of consequences rather than duration, as in the example of Sodom and Gomorrha in Jude 7). Rather than fly into a rage and throw a temper tantrum, you are able toA remain silent and keep your emotions and temper under control. If you find yourself in a situationA that you fiercely believe is wrong, you are still able to stay silent until the appropriate moment toA speak or until you have been asked for your opinion. A meek person doesna€™t project the countenance of one who is offended, upset, angry, or reactive to insults or injuries. When others say or do something that could offend you, do you quickly retort with a harsh answer, or are you able to control your emotions and temper, remaining silent until a more appropriate time to speak?A The flesh loves to rage out of control, but when meekness is being produced in you by the Holy Spirit, it will make you careful and controlled.
But doesna€™t a€?temperancea€? have almost exactly the same meaning as the word a€?meeknessa€??
What is the difference between these two fruits of the Spirit?A As noted above, the word a€?meeknessa€? has to do with the attitude or demeanor of a person who can control his temper or emotions. Because the Holy Spirit has produced temperanceA in his life, he is able to say no to overeating, no to overindulging in fleshly activities, no toA any excesses in the physical realm. If the flesh is allowed to haveA its way, it will over-worry, overwork, overeat, overindulge, and literally run itself to death.
Do you demonstrate that you can control both your temper and your physical appetites and urges?
When I look at myself in the mirror, my physical image even tells me that temperance is greatly lacking in me.
So today I am sincerely calling out and asking You to help me move up to a higher level of life.
