S.T.Y.L.E. - Simply Trust Your Life's Essence - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
To find that style that will make you smile, just be yourself. If you just be yourself, you can’t lose. And if you try to be something you’re not, you can’t win. Just do the best you can with what you’ve got and be content. Nobody can ask you to do more than that. We’re all in the parade of life, that miracle we are all witness to. At each moment everyone is acting out his or her part in life’s dance. Be the style that will let you smile, mile after mile, through trial after trial. Trust is a must. Trust opens the door to let your mind soar. Just think you’re okay, then you’ll think you’re okay. Life is a Mirror of Mind.

R.O.A.D. - Reach Out - Awaken Dreams - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
We’re all on our journey on the road of life. Life is an ongoing dialectic, we create
it, and it creates us. It’s okay to reach out and go for it, because nothing can harm your mind, because your mind is nothing (no-thing). With some vision and some heart, some knowledge and experience, we can reawaken a wonderful life. When you get really clear, you can realize that your dreams are already here. You truly can awaken your dreams. Just open the door. There’s so much in store, when you realize that you’re already on the distant shore. Your dreams are right here waiting for you to awaken to them.

L.I.F.E. - Let It Flower Enchantedly - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
The gift of life is a wonderful thing. Often we get so caught up in the rush of things, that we get full of tension.

Stress never helped anyone. Just relax into knowing that you are doing the best you can. Be content in knowing that at this moment, this is the way it is, no more and no less. Just go with the flow. Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. When you flower enchantedly, life is like a dream.

Watch out! Pay attention! You don't want to miss the subtle, magical gift of your own awareness. Life is a luminous, miraculous movie. Sights & sounds & feelings, & endless daydreams.

P.E.A.C.E. - Please Echo - All Created Equally - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
We all are beings on planet earth, only trying to find our way after birth. Life's birth is a roll of the dice, not really able to choose your life's precise slice. So for goodness sake, give people a brake. Most everyone would have things better, if they only could. So stop saying other people "should". Put your judgement on the shelf & work on yourself. Life is so very short, just try to be of a better sort. Let your bias cease, & open your heart & start working for peace.

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.

L.O.V.E. - Let Others' Visions Exist - R. McDougal/ Isle of View
One of the greatest gifts we can give people is to let them have their own vision. Appreciate that everyone has his own unique way of seeing things. Allow them to have their own picture of the world. Love is letting go of thinking your way is better for everyone. Love is honoring and respecting others, as you would like to be. Just like you have your certain way, others do too. Love lets others be who they are. As long as someone is not stepping on anyone’s toes, we should let them be free to see, as they want to be.
