Nothing To See Here!

Don’t believe everything you read in the headlines. There IS something to see here. In fact there are THREE things to see, three very different documentaries that I am glad that I watched! So much so, I’m going to watch them all over again.

Finding Joe

In the early 20th century, while studying world mythology, Joseph Campbell discovered a pattern hidden in every story ever told and he called it “the heroes journey”. A truly inspirational film, FINDING JOE takes us on the ultimate heroes journey: the journey of self discovery. As you slay dragons and uncover treasures, you just may find that the holy grail you seek is closer than you think…

This documentary helped me understand better what I’m going through on my own journey within.

I Am

A documentary written, directed, and narrated by Tom Shadyac. The film asks the question: “What is wrong with the world, and what can we do about it?”, and explores Shadyac’s personal journey after a bicycle accident in 2007.

One Strange Rock

This documentary left me in AWE! Hosted by Will Smith, One Strange Rock is a thrilling journey exploring the fragility and wonder of our planet, one of the most peculiar places in the universe.

It’s the extraordinary story of why life exists on Earth, brought into perspective by the only people to have left it behind: astronauts.

This series was filmed in 45 countries (including my own, Norway), on six continents, and from outer space. It reveals the twists of fate that have allowed life to thrive on Earth and how we are all connected in many surprising ways.

Watch it:
One Strange Rock premiered on National Geographic in 2018. It was released on Netflix in 2019. In the USA, it left Netflix for Disney+ in January 2020. You can also find it on Prime Amazon.

“In the physical world there are innumerable contrasts, and these may for convenience sake, be designated by distinctive names. There are sizes, colors, shades or ends to all things. There is a North Pole, and a South Pole, an inside and an outside, a seen and an unseen, but these expressions merely serve to place extremes in contrast. They are names given to two different parts of one quantity. The two extremes are relative; they are not separate entities, but are two parts or aspects of the whole.” (Master Keys, Part 19)

The 5 Habits That Make You Happier

Do You Want to be Happy? 

This might sound like a silly question. Who wouldn’t want to be happy?? Well, it turns out that this is not the case for everyone.

I know, because I have been that person. I used to feel that I had “the right” to be angry, bitter and depressed since life had handed me such a shitty hand of cards.

Few things could provoke me more than people claiming that happiness has to come from within. My go-to response was, “Don’t you think I would have been happy if my life didn’t suck!!???”

I know I’m not alone in defending myself that way. I hear it all the time. Life sucks, so let’s ALL be miserable…..

Listen up!

My life isn’t perfect and I am far from perfect, but I am happier than I have ever been before! I wake up happy, grateful just to be alive, knowing that today I’m taking one step further towards my goals in this exciting journey called Life.

I don’t think a life without problems is realistic. It’s how we are able to deal with those problems that makes ALL the difference.

Ponder This

Your quality of life isn’t measured by how wealthy you are, the size of your house or how expensive your car is. Your quality of life isn’t measured by how healthy you are or what you look like.

Your quality of life is measured by how you FEEL. If you depend on other people and circumstances to make you happy, you’ll spend the rest of your life trying to change other people and control the world around you. The irony is that the only thing we can control is our own mind.

Who else but you controls how you think and feel? Only YOU can think your thoughts. Only YOU can feel your feelings. It’s time to stop the blame game. Join our next class to learn how: https://masterkey.vision/bibi

The techniques you’ll learn in the class are based on science, it’s not a hype. Start TODAY by following these simple but effective tricks:

The 5 Habits That Make You Happier

1. Gratitude:
Write down 3 things every day that you are grateful for.
Read them, feel the gratitude.
Repeat daily with 3 new things/persons/events.
Here’s a helpful reminder/question if you can’t find anything to be grateful for:  What if you woke up tomorrow with only the things you were grateful for today?

2. Journaling:
Write just one or two sentences daily about something nice that happened that day. It doesn’t have to be HUGE. For example, you enjoyed the taste of your coffee that morning. Or perhaps you heard a bird chipper. You read a good book. A stranger smiled to you. Write it down. Re-live the moment, feel it. Repeat (Read it again, re-feel it again the next day, and the next).

3. Exercise:
Move that body! Go for a walk. Dance. Do a few jumping jacks to get a charge of the so-called happy hormones. 5 minutes daily or more. Start small. Just do something.

4. Meditation:

A relaxed mind is a happier mind. If you have never meditated before, you can always start by listening to guided mediations on apps or YouTube. When you think you’ve got the idea, try alone … You may have a topic or a goal you wish to meditate on, perhaps an intention, or just to clear your mind. Start with 10 minutes daily, increase to 30 minutes and more when you get the hang of it.

5. Random Acts of Kindness:
When you are kind to other people, you brighten their day. Being kind to others is also a way of being kind to yourself. It feels good to be kind! In a world where you can be anything, be kind. Watch the ripple effects…
