Play Day

by Michael Berry on July 28, 2014

Time passes effortlessly when we are deeply in play. Look for signs that time seems to fly by for you when you engage in a playful activity.When we are playing we are enjoying the present moment. When we are in the present moment, we gain access to an energy and satisfaction not available at any other time.
 
Playing is an important part of life’s enjoyment. The ability to keep things light and fun is an important life skill.
 
Take one afternoon and decide to play. For the entire afternoon make a conscious decision to only play and keep things light. If you are working, make this an afternoon on the weekend. Put away the phone or anything that will interrupt your playtime. Set yourself  up so that outside influences cannot affect this time.
 
Cast aside every concern. Enjoy yourself thoroughly. Do whatever is fun play for you. Play cards. Go shopping. Write a poem. Ride a motorcycle. Join a pick-up basketball game. Walk on the beach. Read a book.
 
Play. Give yourself the gift of time and enjoy every minute of it.
 
Personal development is our business and our life.

The Dragon Fly Story

by Michael Berry on July 27, 2014

You learn in personal development that life is a journey, not a destination.

I’d like to share a little story with you that has to do with the law of attraction and we’re all connected. I believe this applies to all living things.

One evening my wife (Arni) and I were sitting down at the lake on our property in Texas at the time and I noticed there were a few very large dragon flies hovering over the lake and going back and forth. I rather enjoyed watching them since I felt certain they were catching a few mosquitoes in the process. In Texas we also had some biting flies that can be rather annoying too. I made the comment to Arni “I wonder if dragon flies ever catch flies?”. Within less than 15 seconds of that question a dragon fly landed on my arm, that was folded in my lap, with a very large fly in his mouth. He proceeded to eat that fly while on my arm. It must have taken him at least 10 minutes to complete the job. He was staring at me the entire time with those multiple eyes. This type of thing has happened to me many, many times in my life but this was probably the funnest occurrence.

I believe that when you put thoughts out there you don’t have to necessarily believe that you’ll get an answer immediately but I also did not have any belief that would not get an answer either. Same way as maybe you’re going through some old papers and find a business card from Bob that you have not talked to in years and you say to yourself. I wonder how Bob is doing and within a short time you get a call from Bob. Coincidence, I don’t think so.

Personal development is our business and our life.
