July 27th, 2007 – Reading

July 27, 2007

I finally gave up the pretense that I can see ok.  I intend that I will again – but not now.  My left eye can’t see the E and my right eye needs lots of correction – I’ve written about this… And very few books that I want to read are published in large, readable fonts.

So – in an hour I’m getting a full page magnifying glass.  It could be said that I’m creating my reading, but the simpler explanation is this — Stop complaining and do something.

July 26th, 2007 – Rocks and Hard Places

July 26, 2007

Sometimes being caught between a rock and a hard place is what I need to create – Desperation equals Inspiration – very interesting.

I found this site this morning:  http://www.AttractWorldPeace.com/today.htm

Particularly exciting because I’m giving a free teleclass on The Law of Attraction (How to Attract) next Thursday at 7:30 EDT.  —

July 25th, 2007 Eating

July 25, 2007

I have dealt with the conflict between what I like to eat and the way I ‘should’ eat for most of my life.  My first diet was when I was 14 – that was to lose weight – but the conflict has never stopped.  Now I know a lot more and I really want to eat the way I should eat.  And I’m getting better at choosing.  Last night I made a big choice –

I finally got it about milk.  Do you know we’re the only species that drinks another species’ milk?  And pasteurization kills whatever value it may have – We kill all the beneficial bacteria – we cook the milk before we store it.  Why?  Because it will stay around longer to be sold.  I’ve used goat milk for 30+ years because its formulation is very close to breast milk – but it’s still pasteurized.

What’s worse is that I use it in coffee.  The combination of milk and coffee produces something that’s neither when it goes through the body – It ends up as a kind of sludge – particularly hard to digest – adds weight, slows metabolism, …

So as of today – no more milk

July 23rd, 2007 – Your Shoes

July 23, 2007

How do I stand in the other person’s shoes?  As a coach, it’s important that I can see and hear things from your perspective – But what happens when I am suprisingly ignorant?

Yesterday I saw a video of Van Jones (a name you will come to know, I promise) talking to the facilitators of the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposium (I’m one.)  And he specifically spoke about our commitment to Social Justice.

I think of myself as diverse, a leftist at heart.  Three of my daughters have mixed race children – And I’ve lived through the 50s, 60s, … through the assasinations of Kennedy, King and Kennedy –

And I was deeply moved by Jones – I felt again the love – the loss, the anguish, the dashed hopes and dreams, the possibility destroyed.  And I cannot be in his shoes; I cannot know the black experience of those times – I am ignorant.  And will listen newly.

Writing for the Century

July 16, 2007

I spent last weekend with the luminaries of the ‘transformational world.’ Seems only Werner Erhard was missing (He was one of my first and set my course).  Too bad.  I somehow have escaped Information Overload.  I will let it in (and let it out) in trickles… so it’s all there.

Interesting how almost every speaker at the Seminar of the Century validated the Law of Attraction in their own lives – Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, .., etc.
Of course, the emphasis was on wealth and success – And it ain’t necessarily so.

I’m giving a telesemina on Wenesday, July 18th (7:30 EDT).  You can register on my website http://www.michaellipp.com . It’s about my growing experience with the Law.

All I know is that the more I talk, the more of you will listen, particularly where my commitment is to provide growing value for you.

The Law of Attraction is not about money, it’s about living in harmony with yourself.
