T.R.Y. - Take Responsibility Yourself - R. McDougal/Isle of View
Woody Allen once said, “Eighty percent of success is just showing up.” There are so many people that don’t even try. It’s really not that hard, if you just put one foot in front of the other and fall forward. Lao Tzu said, “The journey a thousand miles begins with one step.” If you put the ingredients together, things will happen. Most people have similar potential, but some succeed because they are willing to focus and use will-power to make things happen. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. So as you sow, so shall you reap. Just go for it. Just try. We’re all always either winning or learning.

A.B.C.D. - Awaken Beyond Constant Desire - R.McDougal/ Isle of View
People's constant desire keeps them from realizing the calm & contentment that is here for their choosing. To constantly think you need something more to be fulfilled, tragically & ironically, keeps you from feeling complete. You only have to accept the reality that at any given moment, there is never any more than what is here. This is it. It is perfectly "as it is". No more & no less. Accept it & find peace of mind. Thinking that you need more defines you as incomplete. That's laying a very bad trip on yourself. So learn to accept that this moment is simply as it is. Try to change things if you want, but for now, reality is perfectly as it is. And now for goodness sake, you know how to give yourself a break, & realize that every moment is its own perfect cake.

O.M. - Open Mind - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
Open minds open magic. The chance of a lifetime is to let go & flow into the luminous infinity of your own mind. There is nothing more that you need to find. Every moment is perfectly as it is. There is nothing to get. Get it? Stop the constant desire game of thinking you need more to be fulfilled. Every moment is complete & a perfect feat of what it is. The Buddha said on complete & ultimate enlightenment, that he got nothing more than what is already here. It's about realizing not achieving. Thinking that there is more that you need to get, ironically keeps you in duality & the illusion that you are not complete. Enough. Let go & know.

E.A.R.T.H. - Evolve And Resolve To Harmonize - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
May we help earth & give birth to a renewal of harmony & true ecological balance.
We are destroying our very planet. We are in big trouble, if we don’t stop over-developing and over-populating of our planet.

Let’s all stand-up and be responsible for getting our environment healthy and in balance. This is the only planet we have. We are playing Russian Roulette with our survival. We all deserve better. Do your part to make a new start.

S.A.G.E. - Self Awareness Grants Empowerment - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
Everyone has a burden to carry through life, just as we do. When we experience life’s suffering, it gives us the insight to relate to others’ pain. When someone helps us, we know how much it means.

So find that generous shift, and give someone a lift. It’s the ultimate gift. The wise ones know how to open their heart and practice the hero art. Why not start? The more you give, the more you live.

"Broomstick technology: The earth spins around its axis every 24 hrs at 1,000 mph and orbits the sun once a year at 66,000 mph. Adding up the spinning and orbiting means you've travelled about 550 miles since you started reading this paragraph. Or, put another way, you're traveling through space at 18.5 miles per second - faster than a bullet. Have a nice day." - Alan Fletcher from his marvelous & brilliant book: "The Art of Looking Sideways".

the grace and magic of life. Let go of attachments and judgments, and let your
mind be in harmony. It’s a dance. It’s a trance. It’s a romance with the balance
