Conscious Party

I found this list of on Alwyin Cosgrove's blog, via Anthony Robbins. I thought they were worth sharing here:

12 Tenets of Conscious Living

Each New Year brings changes - a new commitment to health - to how we spend our time - and a renewed dedication to those we love.

Each day within the year brings an opportunity for change.

We are here for a reason - and it is a magnificent one.

We are limited by nothing. We are called to create a masterpiece and to give more of ourselves.

1. Live a life of service.

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." Mahatma Gandhi

2. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

"We need lots of love to forgive, but we need more humility to ask for forgiveness." Mother Teresa

3. Be kind.

"Life is short. But there is always enough time for courtesy." Ralph Waldo Emerson

4. Be remarkable.

"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." Les Brown

5. Seek unity.

"Interdependence is and ought to be as much the ideal of man, as self sufficiency." Gandhi

6. Strive for wisdom.

"Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life." Immanuel Kant

7. Be grateful.

"When you are grateful, fears disappear and abundance appears." Anthony Robbins

8. Think critically.

"The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking." Albert Einstein

9. Be brave.

"You must do the thing you think you cannot do." Eleanor Roosevelt

10. Be humble.

"Do you wish people to think well of you? Don't speak well of yourself." Blaise Pascal

11. Be creative.

"A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others." Ayn Rand

12. Be present.

"How wonderful it is that nobody need to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." Anne Frank

Perhaps. He might be in Rancho Santa Fe. That sort of the place people go to build their huge dream houses.

Thanks. I thought they were worth passing along. The pic is from my back yard.

Winner! BTW, that makes complete sense!
