Simple truths

 

    This is wheat. Wheat produces seeds which when planted in the ground produce more wheat. If you plant wheat, you will not harvest corn, you will harvest wheat. It is a simple lesson in sowing and reaping.


    This is anger. Anger produces seeds which when planted in the universe around you will produce more anger. If you plant anger, you will not harvest peace, you will harvest anger.


This is a negative attitude. Negative attitudes produce seeds which when planted in the universe around you will produce more negativity. You can’t plant negativity and expect positive harvest.

Simple lessons in sowing and reaping .  This is my new series:

MY THOUGHTS

I AM ADAM

People sometimes ask me to share my thoughts on things. I’am not big on doing this as I’m basically a private person. However, about three years ago I wrote a book called I AM ADAM, in which I shared my thoughts, in a fictional way, about what may have happened in the Garden of Eden.


Book did well overseas, developed a good following but not so much in the USA. So, having lost partial sanity, I AM ADAM is now being given away free where I SHARE MY THOUGHTS about the story of ADAM and EVE (who were both know as Adam in the bible). 


I am sure my thoughts will open a can of worms in many ways, but what the heck – they are only my thoughts. All the FREE stuff is found by CLICKING HERE.


Would love for you to share your thoughts if you want. It has been a while since I had to run for cover. LOL

NEW BEGINNINGS

Every new year there is an abundance of thought about new beginnings. We go over the events of the last year and set goals for the new life before us. Someone once kept a log of his new years resolutions:

2009: I will not spend my money frivolously.
2010: I will pay off my bank loan promptly.

2011: I will pay off my bank loans promptly.
2012: I will begin making a strong effort to be out of debt by 2013.
2013: I will be totally out of debt by 2014.

2014: I will try to pay off the debt interest by 2015.
2015: I will try to be out of the country by 2016.

 

I guess we all like to think of new beginnings as a place of escaping from old problems. It is a fact that every new beginning means something has to end. Problem is, we often feel the past is so painful that the future is just too hard to visualize. 

Maybe we need to be like the caterpillar. When he believes he has reached the end of life, the butterfly has just found a new beginning. Let’s resolve not to look back on what might have been and simply look forward to what will be. 

Have a Happy and joy filled New Year. If you have time– check out my new book series

Hook, Line & Sinker

release cover

New Orleans is known as the “Big Easy”, which is a perfect place for former FBI agent Jennifer Blade and Dr. Steve Sanders to drop out of life – almost literally. Jennifer is legally dead and in witness protection after bringing down a major drug cartel. Steve is content to simply love Jennifer, New Orleans and life.

But this calm, laid-back life wasn’t meant to last – everything suddenly changes as sinister people open the doors to the past in an attempt to deeply cripple America.

“Bingo” Bob Somolianti steeped himself in crime and corruption before he was granted immunity and witness protection in exchange for his testimony against powerful crime syndicates. Part of Jennifer’s life since her mother and father died, Bingo walked a path of crime while Jennifer followed her desires into the FBI. Because of his past contacts with arms dealers, powerful people believe he is the key to finding an ultimate weapon needed to implement their destructive plan. Together, Jennifer, Steve and Bingo attempt to unravel this scheme while there is still time.

Steve, as a practicing psychologist, suddenly finds his understanding of life being challenged as he works with a woman who is deeply into the culture of Voodou. His resistance to this mystical practice is worn down as supernatural events begin to intervene in the challenge he, Jennifer and Bingo face.

Fear vs ?

Cover_for_Kindle2

In my book OFF the HOOK, (click here for blog on book) I explore a young woman’s struggle with fear. Laura finds the strength to leave  a relationship when she discovers the ability to overcome the fear of her partners wrath. Through an almost supernatural interaction at a cocktail party, a stranger tells her the opposite of fear is love and she needs to love herself to over overcome fear.

I find people often think of joy as the opposite of fear, yet I have had many times when I wasn’t filled with joy, yet had no real fear. Laura’s thoughts on her fear is in the following excerpt from Off  the Hook:

“Then, as I thought about Rolf’s way of making demands and being very unpredictable in the relationship, I realized he used drama to maintain control, just like mother. Rolf never gently requested things; he always set a stage of urgency for his ‘suggestions’ and then demanded I salute and obey them. If I didn’t agree it became a major problem, complete with descriptions of the terrible, horrible consequences of my thinking, the long-range implication of my decisions, always anchored with suggestions I was not smart enough or old enough to understand life.

“It went off in my head that my mother used the same line for years; ‘Laura, you are not old enough or bright enough to understand what is going on’. This constantly reoccurred in my childhood and became a thought I deeply believed. I was shocked when my seventh grade teacher said I was a very bright child, positive she must have me confused with someone else.”

How does fear control our lives? How do we learn to walk in love and not fear? I would love to know your thoughts.

Two words define the emotional bookends of life: Fear and Love.

Laura McCauley, a thirty-three year old businesswoman successfully established her life in fashion design, opened a series of boutiques and then sold them for enough money to be comfortable for the remainder of her life. Yet, despite all the trappings of her success, Laura is driven by fear. Finding strength to leave a destructive relationship, Laura enters into a supernaturally driven journey to discover the beauty of life is found in loving herself.

Touched deeply by haunting dreams, Laura follows the advise of a mystical guide into an adventure leading to love, romance and an opportunity to truly discover her purpose in life. Along with her best friend Bobbi, a free-spirit woman who thrives on simply being alive, Laura enters into a world where high-powered underworld forces attempt to murder her. In this midst of this conflict, Laura finds new strength to live life without fear.

“Off the Hook,” a seventy thousand word novel, is a paranormal/romance/mystery that not only tells a story, but provides an insight concerning the dangers of unconscious living and how to turn these defeats into victory. Much like the novel “Eat, Pray, Love”, this story will both entertain and provide emotional insight for the reader.
