Life Takes Us Where We Want It To

Dreams, an Extension of Reality

I had a dream last night. I was laying on my back in a field of petunias and begonias looking up into the sky. It was a bright blue day with little wispy clouds. One cloud was shaped like a heart, another cloud was shaped like a peace symbol. It was sunny and I could feel the warmth from the sun pouring down on my face.

I woke with tears in my eyes. I'm not afraid to tell you this.

Try, Try, Try

At my speech in December at Tiger Stadium in Detroit the question kept coming up: "But where does the anger go?" And so I thought, today, I'd try to answer it.

Without getting too technical, the anger is reprocessed into a protein that is similar in texture to soy. My whole idea, and part of what I've charged the Dick Cheney Institute for Global Solutions with, is to figure out how to better use anger to help feed the tens of thousands of people in this world who go hungry every day.

The A-Word

From my May 9th Seminar at the Paladium

"Anger, just like Gravity, is a force. We shouldn't fight anger, we need to understand it. When we understand it, we can contain, control, and ultimately harness its power for good!"

The Express Rolls On!!!!!

I thought I'd update you on the Good News Express. We rolled into Houston at dawn this morning for three sold-out days of Optimism Workshops® at the Astrodome. It's a little discombobluating to go to bed in St. Petersburg and then wake up in a completely different state! But what an amazing opportunity I've been given to help everyone find the spiritual happiness we all deserve.

Happiness, You Can Make A House With It

"Think of life as an infinitely long brick wall. On each brick is the word, 'Happiness.'"
