I was born in the year of the ox and what it says about me is pretty true.

 What animal represents the year you were born?

 Does it sound accurate about the description of the qualities that animal and you possess?

 I’m American and I don’t really celebrate the Chinese New Year but many people here in Las Vegas do. 

The Bellagio decorates the conservatory big time every year and prepares weeks in advance to do it and it’s really extraordinary. Chinese and people come from all over the world come to see  and celebrate  all the festivities here in Las Vegas for the Chinese New Year.

The reason the photos are not folks is because I can’t find them in my sub directoris yet. I will though.

When you lose touch with Inner Stillness, you lose touch with Yourself. Eckhart Tolle

“When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world. Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form.” Eckhart Tolle

Trump will order wall built: Paulette Motzko on Trump

Trump will order wall built today, but it’s not that simple

http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/25/politics/trump-wall-mexico-challenges/index.html

There are a million things we could have done as a Nation- other than building a physical wall. Trump doesn’t know how to communicate with other Representatives from other countries, or even try to work towards World Peace or better negotiations. 

With an already outlandish deficit, who is paying for the stupid wall I ask? 

Has anyone ever really answered that? No. 

Trump wants Mexico to pay for it but are they? 

Is that really something that would benefit that country? 

Is it something that’s really even realistic? I say no again.

In my humble opinion, Trump makes decisions in one second doesn’t think them out. He doesn’t think about the big picture and doesn’t think about what the repercussions are about the decisions he makes. Even after owning all his supposed businesses, he us an ignorant, rude, not triple winbing man. I call Trump a Triple Loser. Not only is he stupid but he does not care but he thinks he‘s always right and never wants to learn and doesn‘t even admit when he‘s  wrong, even when he‘s committed crimes against women that are so disgusting it makes a reasonable person want to vomit.

 Trump doesn’t think he just orders. That’s not how you run a country made up of every nationality that exists. Our cultural differences and traditions are what make us great.

 I wish our president of the United States would realize that  the money that they authorize to spend should be well thought out and not credited by allowing other countries to just own more and more of are national landmarks. If we keep operating on that idiotic mindset we won’t own anything in the future and China and Russia and other countries will own the United States of America; it won’t be ours anymore. It will cease to be great and wonderful and be permanenrly ruined. 

Just because people didn’t know how to spend wisely or make intelligent choices that affect everyone for all generations, we as Americans should have to pay the high prices.

The wall is ridiculous and I see the talk about it everywhere on the news everyday. 

This is my sound off about it all.

It’s sad and pathetic and even though Trump is a supposed great business guy, he’s really a hideous human being. That makes him, to me, I’m not successful person. You can have money and you can have Towers it’s a trump on them and you can have diamonds and you can have a thousand blonde women but you call wives and when you get sick of those you can buy another. But you can’t have respect and you can’t have a reputation that’s something that people can respect and look up to.

Trump”s reputation and Trump’s Integrity needs to be as high as the Trump building I see in downtown Las Vegas- but it’s not. If Trump’s integrity was a building, I’d say it was a shack.

If Trump’s care for other people, and understanding and sensitivity to other people’s races could be compared to in size of its existence, his compassion for others who would be the size of one pea in a pod.

In so many ways Trump is a horrible human being and I’m so sorry he’s president. I wish he could have been thrown out of the running just because he committed crimes before going in office. Travesties against women and against the Civil Rights of about every race were done. 

Isn’t there something someone else in power could have done to throw him out of the race?

American citizen should have something called quality control just like an engineering firm does. If they don’t like all the contenders they should be able to throw it out, and just say that give me somebody else that’s honest and trustworthy. Give me somebody that didn’t commit treason against the United States of America. Give me somebody that didn’t rape and pillage.

Unfortunately, the most on honest contenders withave the highest integrity factors in the race didn’t rate that highly in the voting polls.

I wasn’t intending to be so political or so opinionated in this post, but hey that’s what makes the world great. I know that I have a lot of supporters who feel the same exact way as I do, especially women and especially very good-hearted people. Absolutely not one of my intelligent friends who are kind-hearted, good people- who care about the world and the environment like or voted for him.

 The reason why? Trump is the polar opposite of a good human being. Children can see right through his Brash and rude exterior. In the matter what, kids can’t lie they are totally honest.

 Trump doesn’t preserve nature he goes out and kills it and hangs it up on a wall for all to see. 

Trump doesn’t stand for women’s rights but instead  he rapes, assaults and  insults them on national television and demeans them. 

Trump doesn’t look out for the betterment of the United States of America or any other nationality but tries to divide us and create stupid barriers that have never been done before in history.

 I wish that we could change the way we run the country and I wish someone somewhere and our nation could look down and all of those hideous disgusting things that Trump has done and thrown him oUT of office based on his many character flaws. 

If I was the sum of one word  where Trump is concerned that gives me joy it’s called impeachment.

I’d be one of the first to go start the impeachment process. Anybody else agree with me? 

Does any of my other followers on Totally Inspired Mind agree with what I’m saying and echoes my feelings? 

If so, I’ll look into what it takes to impeach him and I’m not kidding! 

Until next time, be blessed and I hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend. 

I bought a ticket to go hear Joel Osteen and his wife at The TMobile arena.  It should be really empowering.  I read 3 of his books every day.

Paulette Motzko’s Writing Books  Recommendations and Pathways to Inspiration

This article was inspired by one of my recent followers, who went through a very tragic and tumultuous year. Because of this it stopped this once prolific writer from producing anything at all. 

Sometimes we can be over critical on ourselves, overanalyzing everything that we do. That quality doesn’t help us when we create anything of value in this world, written or otherwise. Create because you want to create. Whether it be be a mud pie, a sandcastle,  a watercolor painting, a photograph, a beautiful song,  a recipe, a loaf of bread, or  the manuscript for your first book.

Wallpaper Image from Zedge.com.

Writing can be catharsis or it can be euphoria. You can carve every word just as though you were Michelangelo and you were carving marble transforming  something  hard and solid into something that breathes with life. 

That’s the analogy I like best when it comes to writing, and it has served me well since my Honors English days in High School. I took every English class that Garden Grove High had to offer I had phenomenal teachers, better than even in college.

And one thing I did in every writing class is writing is to write in my personal Journal -and just write every day. 

In other words, write things that the world never see. 

There are things that are only for you, God, and serve a very valid purpose.  If you don’t have a journal, go buy a nice one at Barnes & Noble, or simply use Microsoft Office  Word  on your smartphone computer or tablet.

 Through devoting time to writing in a special place that inspires you, which is very important, extraordinary things will emerge. Stories can develop right before your eyes, poems can be written, recipes can be thought of.

With everything you write anywhere, especially on a Blog that seen all over the world – you’re gaining  experience, exposure, notoriety, readership and it’s just enjoyable. The enjoyable part is the most important one of all.

Once you start carving out time for writing, you’ll start carving words that are memorable and lasting and worth remembering.

If you are a writer, check out my other blog called A Writer’s Joy. A Writer’s Joy

 Any kind of art, written or otherwise, is an extension of your soul. Art I’d an extension of  your inner most being. Writing is one of those timeless arts, that if used in the right way,  can outlive you do great things long after you leave this earth, creating a legacy.

Write because you feel what you’re doing is beautiful and has merit, or serves a valid purpose, or can simply  give joy, enlightenment someone, educate or you’d simply like to share it with the world. That’s exactly what you can do on a blog.

I’m going to be adding to this book list over the next week. I’m going to start with these two, which in themselves are phenomenal starting points, even if no other books were added to the list.

I hope my words of encouragement and blessings on all of your present and future creations extraordinary Beyond Your Wildest Dreams! To all of the artists, writers, photographers, musicians, and chefs create what’s never been created before. Enjoy the process. Learn everything you can about your craft. Read books, and associate with people who are doing what you want to do and let them enter you in every way they possibly can. Listen to advice and listen to helpful criticism but don’t let others dim the light that shines inside you that’s waiting to burst like a beacon to the world.

If we make up our minds that this is a drab and purposeless universe, it will be that, and nothing else. On the other hand, if we believe that the Earth is ours, and the Sun and Moon hang in the sky for our Delight, there will be gladness in the fields….

Helen Keller Says: “If we make up our minds that this is a drab and purposeless universe, it will be that, and nothing else. On the other hand, if we believe that the earth is ours, and that the sun and moon hang in the sky for our delight, there will be joy upon the hills and gladness in the fields because the Artist in our souls glorifies creation. Surely, it gives dignity to life to believe that we are born into this world for noble ends, and that we have a higher destiny than can be accomplished within the narrow limits of this physical life.”

Handling Criticism by Kramer Cruz

Handling Criticism  – http://wp.me/p4h9bT-ki

This is a really fantastic article again by my friend and follower Kramer Cruz. 

He has a really wonderful image that goes with this article, showing very famous people who were all criticized for their ideas and beliefs. I’m going to ask him for the image and I’ll post it when I get it.

Have a phenomenal day everybody!

 It’s raining here in Las Vegas, Nevada -and it seems our weather is just so erratic. One minute it’s windy, the next minute it’s raining, when you get sun for a few hours and it’s back doing the same thing again! 

 The weather is definitely not my favorite thing in Nevada, which is an understatement, but it’s way cheaper to live here than Southern California!

Savor Life!

What did you do lately where you really absorb all of your senses and you enjoyed that moment to the max degree? Quite often we dual task and triple task ourselves to them limit, and we very rarely allow our senses: hearing, fragrance, touch  in taste to fully absorb and immerse ourselves  in  the total experience.

Try it if you haven’t already and just do one thing and that’s it and savor that one thing.

Sure one of your recent experiences in 50 words or less with the mini triple winning readers on

When was the last time that you Empowered Someone Else and Truly Helped Them? Share Your Story.

Image photographed by Paulette Motzko. Digital photo Arts by Paulette L. Motzko at PLM Studios. Copyright January 2017.

Share your story about you how you recently empowered someone else to do something they didn’t know they had the ability to do. Don’t ever just compare yourself with what other people do. Don’t be the status quo. Everybody was jumping off a cliff would you jump with them?

Just because everybody is doing something stupid doesn’t mean you have to do it too?

Sometimes what the majority does isn’t exactly the best thing to do, it just may be the easiest thing to do or the lazy thing to do. What gives you the most feeling of being rewarded or at least where I’m concerned, is to do the right thing. Sometimes you’re the only one that does the right thing but that’s okay; we need people who make it right, who show the way, and who say, “hey you really matter!”

Share your true life story showing Human Excellence in its truest form. Make your story hundred and fifty words or less and put it in the comment box below. Thank you to all the many new followers this week!

You are my JOY and each of you is truly special.

Aloe Vera -Start with 1 tablespoon & see how you feel.

http://thealoeverasite.com/aloe-vera-faqs_how-much-aloe-vera-should-i-drink.php

I got out my many alternative health books 2  weeks ago and was outlining other more natural therapies I could employ for epilepsy, digestive health and arthritis and aloe was claimed to help ALL of those things. I bought a large bottle of the pure juice on Walmart.com, making sure it was pure juice and not gel and had no other ingredients but aloe vera juice.

I will keep you posted on how I feel as I add this to my daily routine. I know I feel world’s better since drinking lemon water throughout the day. 

I also take 500 mg of the animo acid Taurine, known to help brain function and memory.

Sometimes it takes a merging of both  alternative therapies and Western medicine Therapies Ritchie Valens of life and you have chronic disorder or disease disability.

Wisdom Story: “The Hedgehogs”-The best relationship is not one that brings together perfect people. 

Wisdom Story: “The Hedgehogs”
—————————
“It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.

The hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

Image from Pinterest, author unknown.

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.

Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person’s good qualities.”

I, for one, love strength, daring, fortitude. I do not want people to kill the fight in them; I want them to fight for the right things. Helen Keller

Helen Keller Says: “I, for one, love strength, daring, fortitude. I do not want people to kill the fight in them; I want them to fight for right things.”

One of the earliest known pictures of Helen Keller with her extraordinary teacher Anne Sullivan. She was my role model since I was 9 years old diagnosed with epilepsy. I discovered her and playing piano I’m cooking, and writing, it is very early age and very pivotal age in my life. I realized after reading what she did dealt with what she had to deal with that I could do anything I put my mind to do, if I only wanted to badly enough.

Later picture of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan,  also from Pinterest, . Photographer unknown.

Anne Sullivan brought Enlightenment to Helen Keller’s life. Before Anne Sullivan entered Helen Keller’s dark and Silent world, she didn’t understand why she was there and didn’t understand that everything had a meeting and everything had a name in this world. I suggest you read any of the books that Helen Keller wrote. Your life and your attitude will be forever changed. She was brilliant and it was Anne Sullivan that brought out that brilliance hiding like a tulip waiting to bloom buried deep in the Earth.
