Now is Here

Ric MorganBy Featured Speaker Ric Morgan

It is always Now. Though the future beckons and the past fills up your memories, what you always have, where you always are, is Now. The successes you enjoy are the successes you work to achieve not someday, not once upon a time, but now.

The actions that get taken, and the only ones which have any affect whatsoever, are the actions you take Now.

Though the past may still echo, though the future holds much promise, Now is where you live, Now is the place where you have an influence, Now is the time when you can make things happen.

What are you waiting for? Now is here Now. It is your time to live, to accomplish, to learn, to have fun, to move forward, to laugh, to love, to make a difference? Do it Now and it will get done.

Every opportunity, every possibility that exists, exists Now. Now encompasses a whole universe filled with abundance and energy. You are now. Now is yours. Make it the best it can be.

Monkeys Are Cute But They Bite

Ric MorganBy Featured Speaker Ric Morgan

Every one of us has one or two, or a bunch of monkeys on our backs that represent nagging problems we personally have with life. They are difficult things for us to deal with, usually born out of habit or some deep psychological problem, and it takes a lot of consistent effort to either change or eliminate them.

I noticed this about myself back in the early 80s. I was sitting relaxed in my easy chair and I happened to look down and noticed both my hands were closed into very tight fists. I opened them up, wiggled my fingers around a bit, but then didn’t pay to much attention to them. A couple of weeks later I was taking a long weekend road trip with my current girlfriend. She reached over to hold my hand, looked over at me and said, “Are you angry about something, because I’ve noticed that even when you are relaxed, your hands are closed in fists?” And she said she noticed that I crossed my arms a lot, which is a barrier sign, meaning, stay away or stay out. Then, being the very insightful, spiritual person she was she said, “These actions are symbols. Unless you open up, you will not receive your greater good.”

Fearlessly Get Out of Your Own Way

Ric MorganBy Featured Speaker Ric Morgan

What is the one thing you want to do more than anything else in the World? What would make you want to jump out of bed each day, because you would be so excited doing what you love so much?

Why aren’t you doing it?

What’s standing in your way? Probably the only thing is yourself. Why? Because you are afraid. But of what?

What were they thinking? Some notes on word use

Ric MorganPet Peeves With Words

By Featured Speaker Ric Morgan

No man is exempt from saying silly things; the mischief is to say them deliberately.
– Michel de Montaigne

It’s a miracle that anyone can learn American English. The language is full of things that make absolutely no sense, and there are common phrases that must take years for someone other than a native to fully understand.

Last week I purchased a new item at the grocery store. I guess I am a sucker for advertising because I like to try the new things that come along. Of course that’s not saying that I’m going to like it and purchase it forever, but you just never know.
