Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

Look around and see all the beauty that surrounds you. Be aware of the Magic, Mystery, and Miracles. Feel the breeze, and appreciate the silence. There’s peace in the air… can you feel it? Immerse yourself in this peace and let it impregnate you. Soak it all in!

Today is a good day to reflect on what you were brought here to do.

You have gifts to give, and this is your job in this life. So, don’t postpone giving the gifts that you are meant to give. Don’t decline to accept the call to share.

Apply yourself to give the gifts that only you can give, and don’t worry about tomorrow.  Accept that life is an adventure, and no one is able to be completely safe. Don’t seek security; seek freedom. And experience complete peace of mind when you are no longer afraid.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? The sea and the land continue to be where they are supposed to be. Life goes on!

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to question the script of the world, all those things that we were told we must be, do, and have in order to be happy, such as “You have to study and get a degree. You have to get a higher degree. You have to buy a house. You have to marry and have children. You have to have a family. You have to have a good job. You have to work hard. You have to make lots of money.”

Have you ever questioned the “you-have-to’s?” Are they real to you? Will doing and acquiring all those things really bring you happiness? And why are you unhappy? Is it because you don’t have fulfilled the model of success according to the script of the world, and therefore you cannot consider yourself a success?

Today is a good day to question what the world tells. Think about what you were told that you need to be, do, and have in order to be happy, and figure out what really makes you happy.

Remember: you are the one in charge. Define clearly who you are and what you were brought here to do.

Today’s a good day to realize that even if you are not, do not, and have not all those things, you still are a success. You are a child of the Universe, and your mere presence here is a gift to the world. So stop feeling incomplete and unworthy, and rejoice with who you are, what you do, and what you have.

Life is good! Enjoy it!

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around and see beyond what you see. Look with the eyes of the heart and see all the Magic, Mystery, and Miracles that surround you.

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to reflect on the existence of two universes — the physical and the non-physical — and consider that we inhabit both at the same time.

Consider that we are, at the same time, mortal and immortal, human and divine. Consider that we are birthless and deathless, that we experience birth and death in this physical plane, but not in the spiritual one. Contemplate that we are, at the same time, separated and united, many and one.

Today is a good day to continue your meditation practice and enhance the time you spend in the realm of emptiness. Give your thinking mind some time off, and stay in that thoughtless space. And begin to see beyond what you see.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

Look and see beyond what you see. There is Magic, Mystery, and Miracles all around us. We are surrounded by beauty, aren’t we?

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to remember that a good life is a collection of good moments.

Sadly, many of us are sleepwalking through life, and we can’t see beauty even when we are in the middle of it. We must wake up and remain alert and aware of what is going on, extracting the best and infusing each and every moment with refinement and elegance. This is what creates a good life. This is what, at the end of our days, will make us feel that ours were lives well lived.

Do you remember those signs, “You must be present to win?” That’s how it is in life; in order to claim its prizes, you have to be present.

So, pay attention to each and every moment! Be here, now.

Just be!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it?

Look around and see all the beauty that surrounds you. Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to face your fears and do those things that you have been avoiding to do.

Be courageous, and face your monsters. Do those things you know you have to do, but don’t want to, and do them now; do not postpone any longer. Do at least a little bit everyday. Do so and realize that all those things that were haunting you, that were depriving you of the full enjoyment of life, weren’t the monsters you thought they were. Face your fears and worries, experience real freedom, and find yourself asking, “Why haven’t I done this before?”

Move to the next stage of your life, to a simpler, less complicated life, and put more adventure into it. Explore and inspire. Live the great life that only you can live, and give the great gifts that only you can give. Do what you’re called by the Universe to do, and do not worry about the outcomes.

Just do it!

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around the eyes of the heart and see all the beauty that surrounds you. There is Magic, Mystery, and Miracles everywhere, right?

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to let go of your fears.

Many times we are afraid because we imagine that something bad may happen to us, or to our loved ones, and we imagine the worst possible outcomes. And those disturbing thoughts keep haunting us if we don’t question and challenge them.

Fears affect our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health in negative ways. Fears create knots that prevent the free flow of energy in us and through us. Many times we can feel those knots in our bodies, in the throat, chest, and stomach, for instance. Our job is to untie those knots in order to allow the Life Force Energy to flow freely in us and through us, so we can experience joy and serenity. And how can we do that? By letting go of the fears.

We have to grow in the awareness that our fears are moving in the darkness, acting in the background, corroding our sanity, and preventing us from fully enjoying our present moments. The regular practice of meditation allows us to become more aware of our fears; in the quiet and stillness we are better able to identify what is troubling us. And once we do that, we can direct a light at our fears, take a good look at them, and calmly take the necessary steps to deal with them. We may become aware of how our imagination is creating danger where, in reality, there isn’t any. We may realize that although there may be danger in the future, there is no actual danger in the here-now. Looking at our fears weakens them. But since we choose to avoid looking at them, they grow in strength. This is the problem.

What are you afraid of? Take your time to identify what is troubling you. Don’t hide from your fears. Don’t push them away. Stop and take a good look at them. Be courageous and face your monsters.

Just do it!

You will be glad you did it.

Namaste. ~ Piero

Good morning!

Today is another beautiful day in Paradise, isn’t it? Look around with the eyes of the heart and see all the Magic, Mystery, and Miracles that surround you. It is beyond beautiful, isn’t it?

Be amazed! Be grateful! Be happy!

Today is a good day to take a good look at your life, and take the time to reflect on where you were, where you are, and where you are going.

Today is the last day of your old life, of the life you lived until now. Today is also the first day of the rest of your life, of the life you are creating every moment, with every decision you make. This moment is the last and also the first. This moment is the last of the past and the first of the future. In reality, this moment is all that there is; all the rest is an illusion. So, how are you going to live it in order to enhance the quality of your life?

A good life is a collection of good moments. So, pause, go to the center of your being, to that place of peace, and ask yourself, “Am I living every moment consciously? Am I seeing the beauty? Am I looking for and finding joy in the present? What should I do now? What should I do to enjoy this Garden and have fun in this Playground that was given to me? What should I do to enhance the enjoyment of this moment? What should I do to impact the lives of many in positive ways? What should I do the rest of my life? ”

The Forces of the Universe brought you here, to this moment. Be grateful for the life you lived so far, and for the lessons learned and taught. Recognizing that you are special, unique, and that you have a lot to give, ask yourself, “Among the many things I can do, which are the ones that will contribute the most for the betterment of the world?”

Just do them!

You will be glad you did.

Namaste. ~ Piero
