Be A Person of Excellence

But, Caru, at my company everybody slacks off when the boss is gone. Everybody compromises at my school. Not everybody takes care of their yard in my neighborhood. No, here’s the Key. You are NOT EVERYBODY! You’re a cut above. You are called to be excellent. Krishna wants you to set the highest standard. You […]

Living a “No Excuses” Life

Stop making excuses. Quit dwelling on disappointments, the unfairness & hurt that’s been inflicted on you. The worst handicaps are those we place on ourselves. Tony Melendez had a dream to play guitar. But he had been born w/out arms. Could have said, “it’s unfair” but his attitude was, ” I may not have any […]

What’s Your Story

Stories are powerful agents of change. The great language philosopher Ivan Illich said for example, “Neither revolution nor reformation can ultimately change a society. Rather you must tell a new powerful tale, one so persuasive that it sweeps away the old myths and becomes the preferred story, one so inclusive that it gathers all the […]

Moving Forward

Bhagavad Gita Says: “One who does good is never overcome by evil.” In the Bible we read, “There may may be weeping in the night, but joy comes in the morning” Nothing that happens to you is a surprise to Krishna. He knows the past, from the present, to the future. He has the restoration, […]

Master Your Moods

Strive for stability, consistency, being the same day in & day out. We all have emotions, feelings, but we need to learn to manage them. Would you agree with me that too many people today live by how they feel. It’s like living on a roller coaster, up when circumstances are good, and down when […]

Uncomfortable Situations

We all face situations that are uncomfortable. We’re not getting our way, dealing w a person hard to get along with, late for an appointment & caught in traffic. As much as we don’t like it, Krishna allows uncomfortable situations. When we are put under pressure, it shows what we are made of.

Igniting Your Enthusiasm

Today, we’d like to talk to you about igniting your enthusiasm. The word enthusiasm comes from Theia which is a Greek word for God. It’s one of the reasons why we chant, Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. Because it fills us up with a […]

Hoping Against Hope

A lot of life is about waiting: waiting to meet the right person, waiting for problem to be solved, waiting for dream to come to pass. There is a right way to wait & wrong way to wait. We hear that word & most of the time we think waiting means doing nothing, being passive, […]

When a Door Slams in Your Face

Now there is a difference between when a door slams in your face and when a door is just closed. When it’s closed, you have no expectations. But a door that slammed in your face was open, and you thought you could go through it to a whole new world of opportunities. But then, it […]

Enjoy the Journey

Let’s not get SO goal oriented that we overlook the simple joys of life. Once we overcome one challenge, accomplish one goal, climb one mountain, there will always be another. Our time on mountain tops will be relatively brief. The high times are few & far between: graduation, marriage, child birth. Learn to enjoy the […]

Speak to Your Mountains

You prayed, hoped, believed. Need to do more – You need to SPEAK to the mountains. Say, “Mountain Be removed.” You are Not asking, not begging, not saying ‘pretty please.’ You are COMMANDING that fear, that sickness to STOP impeding your march and the march of your loved ones back home back to godhead. I’ve […]

Confront It, Control It

Many times it’s uncomfortable to make the right decision. We have to suffer thru that period of not getting our way. When Krishna asks us to do something hard: walk away from a friend who is polluting us, be more disciplined in what we watch, control our temper. He’s never trying to take something from […]

Shifting to High Gear

Know I’m here to put you on notice today. There’s been a shift in gears. Krishna will give you breaks that you didn’t deserve. He’ll bring the right people across your path. You’ll see opportunity like you’ve never seen it before. He’ll take you further faster. Get those two words down in your spirit. It […]

Movies of the Mind

We can choose FEAR or FAITH. All thru the day, we have the choice to believe Krishna is in control, taking care of us, & has good things in store OR we can go around worried, expecting the worst, wondering if we are going to make it. Fear and faith both ask us to believe […]

Bringing Dreams To Pass

Get your command center sending out the right instructions. I’m not going to send out what I feel. I’m not going to send out what my circumstances are telling me. I’m not going to send out what other people are saying about me. I’m going to= to believe what KRISHNA says about me. I’m blessed, […]

Saving Your Shakti

Stop choosing to be upset. We were never promised our circumstances would be perfect in order for us to be happy. The things that are upsetting you right now – they don’t have to. The people who are aggravating you, even if they don’t change, they don’t have to. If YOU”LL make adjustments & change […]

A Cut Above

Krishna sees if you have a heart after him. He sees your sincerity. He sees your integrity. He sees your spirit of excellence. He sees you honoring Him by daily chanting His Holy Names. What’s on the inside is more powerful than what’s on the outside. Hare Krishna. Keep being your best. Even when no […]

I’m Hurt But I’m Still Here

You may have a REASON for feeling sorry for yourself, but you do not have a RIGHT to feel sorry for yourself. I’ll tell you why. Krishna will never give you a TEST without also giving the ability to PASS it. Even when you are hurt, injured, and tempted to excuse yourself: “Well I wanted […]

Message of Love

We all have strengths. We all have weaknesses. That’s not our own doing, but GRACE OF GOD. Some are secure & confident cause they had a great family life. They had great parents. I can’t judge the actions of someone who was not blessed in that way. If the roles had been reversed, I don’t […]

Krishna Uses the Storm

But having faith doesn’t exempt us from difficulties. The storms of life come to every person. We get a bad medical report. A friend betrays us. Business takes a downturn. In the difficult times, it’s easy to think, “ Krishna, where are you? How could you let this happen to me”? No, the same God […]
