Living The 'GOoD' Life!

What is your intention?

'GOoD' quotes from within by T.F. Hodge

 

 

 

 

Waste no time lamenting with regard to what is lacking. In such instances, immediately turn focus toward what is to be...and remain poised to receive that which is due.

 

 

It's not enough to know pain; you must know how to redirect its force.

 

 

From the very start, life was created of simplicity – a commandment. How, then, does human nature strive to make living so difficult? We fear [the] responsibilities of being gods’ of the most high.

 

 

Diet corresponding to blood type, not food hype.

 

 

In the company of ignorance, be silent...or join the suffering.

 

 

The companion of patience is silence.

 

 

Spirit in the dark does not shine, but shall some day.

Judgment of whom, by whom, and for whom?

Old or new school, they’re both still learning.

 

 

No ‘Yang’ without ‘Yen’, no ‘Yen’ without ‘Yang’ – so one must choose.

 

 

Troubled soul won’t heal until the soul is no longer troubled.

 

 

The remedy for drama is time and space.

 

 

Perhaps the spoiled ones are emotionally crippled.

 

 

Clarity is the absence of logical noise.

 

 

Idol worship is blindingly subtle.

 

 

Giving equals liberation and taking amounts to degradation.  

 

The world is what it is, and your world becomes what you think...pleasant or tumultuous.

 

 

Time has no ‘real’ relevance, and space cannot be measured.

 

 

Only fools attempt to live, literally, as the televised. 

 

 

If “karma” is…then we should be wise with our intentions.

Bliss is the absence of fear.

 

 

Nature gives what is given.

 

 

The ego taunts truth with sarcasm.

Don’t rush to every opportunity just to get ‘played’.

 

 

A king may rule a kingdom, but the stench is not heavenly.

 

 

We possess more than what we own.

 

 

In the ‘hood’ the neighbors have vacated.

 

 

Nothin’ wrong with just chillin’ till the storm blows over.

 

 

What we possess owns us, and we absolutely own nothing. 

 

 

Fill my ears with teaching, not preaching.

 

 

To better days and better ways; keep shining loved-1!

 

 

Never let haters 'still' your flow.

 



Do not hate the player, nor the game...rule it!

Rulers are created by the void of self-mastery.

 

 

From the cradle to the grave, joy and pain is the fertilizer for wisdom.

Bravado may stir the crowd, but courage needs no witness.

 

 

Both friend and enemy reside within us. One lives by the rule of compassion, the other by the rule of hard knocks. Though potential influence of either extreme is inevitable, our actions bear witness to the one we embrace.

 

 

Thoroughly check your inner dialogue before spitting ignorance.

 

 

When spontaneous demoralizing thoughts seep into your conscience, don't trip and allow them to fester. These are random tests of your conviction and determination. Large or small, your reaction to such intrusions is a defining moment for which no one else, but you, can mitigate.

 

 

Don't wish...DO! Don't try...BE! Don't think...KNOW! And above all: Bless a stranger with a small, yet powerful, random act of kindness. You feel me?

 

 

If the thought inspires you and it feels good and right - it is yours, alone, to exercise. So get right on it!

 

 

Success is not determined by the outcome. The outcome is the result of having already decided that you are successful to begin with, loved one.

 

 

What yo do teaches faster, and has a lasting impression, far beyond what you say.

 

 

Hating skin color is contempt for God's divine creative imagination. Honoring it is appreciation for conscious, beautiful-love-inspired diversity.

 

 

Elevate your inside game. A negative attitude is below the horizon; a place for lonesome hearts.

 

 

The path of peace is not a passive journey. It takes incredible strength not to open a can of 'whoop-ass', justifiably, when one's button is pushed.

 

 

One who will not accept solitude, stillness and quiet recurring moments is caught up in the wilderness of addictions - far removed from an original state of being and awareness. This is internal 'dis-ease' waiting to manifest as physical disease.

 

 

Not every instance requires a response. Truth resides silently in the seat of power.

 

 

'Bling' is not an indication of one's riches. It is a product of value-based spending to enrich those outside of ones sphere of influence; the haves bleeding the have-nots.

 

 

What you are and who you are should provide greater clarity about where you have been and where you are headed. Although one distinguishes spiritual from physical nature, the ultimate unification of the two is the consequence of the struggle for internal, external and eternal peace.

 

 

Life is short only if you are not living your purpose.

 

 

Fully inhale your dream and completely exhale manifestation of it.

 

 

Life is a gift of opportunity - an exercise of the will to choose time after time.

 

 

Fear is the lack of faith in one's ability to create positive, powerful solutions.

 

 

The sky is not the limit...I am.

 

 

To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles.

 

 

Freedom is realizing you have a choice.

 

 

To witness miracles unfold in your experience, count your blessings and be one to those you encounter.

 

 

Deep within there is something profoundly known, not consciously, but subconsciously. A quiet truth that is not a version of something, but an original knowing. What this, absolute truth [identity] is may be none of our business, frankly. But it is there, willing to guide us along a path to greater becoming and awareness. It is so self-sustaining that our recognition of it is not required. We are offspring's of such a powerfully divine force -- our Creator of all things known and unknown.

 

 

Head up, heart open...to better days my people!

 

 

Making a dream into reality begins with what you have, not with what you are waiting for.

 

 

What surrounds us is what is within us.

 

 

Each moment of worry, anxiety or stress represents lack of faith in miracles...for they never cease.

 

 

While fear depletes power, faith gives wings for the soul's elevation.

 

 

To know and enjoy freedom's bliss, surrender control of others.

Don't put shame in the game.

 

 

At some point we must evolve...or perish having no one to blame.

 

 

Stop stressin' and be a blessin'.

 

 

Don't pound your chest when it's all good, then blame God when it's all bad.

 

 

To hell with being scared; be inspired!

 

 

Discard the addiction of being inspired by pain.

 

 

We are not wise; we are wise to seek divine wisdom.

 

 

Energy, positive or negative, is a choice with regard to what we choose to give, first, to self...and by extension, to others. Frequency is how often we give either of the two opposite energy forms. Vibration is represented in the form of emotion - a challenge of controlling one's vibe. Think before you speak and pause before you act, because what we give is what we get. This is living in the moment...not the past or the future.

 

 

An intimate relationship is not a reality TV show, it's reality. The subconscious mind does not know the distinction, so the two must agree to consciously regulate the flow.

 

 

The only limits are the ones we accept, and voluntarily sustain.

 

 

The mind organizes what the heart desires.

 

 

Creativity cannot flourish in a cluttered zone.

 

 

Eventually some habits get old and shouldn't die hard; elevate the game.

 

 

When there's nothing left, and it seems all is lost, what remains are gifts from within.

 

 

What is meant to be is to be. Receive endings as a blessing and a lesson rather than a loss...and keep shining!

 

 

What good is knowledge of self if it does not inspire good-will?

 

 

Men may possess knowledge of self, but the man who walks with integrity and good intention is most noble among them.

 

 

Duality applies to [the] living.

 

 

The large voice within is often muted by small logic.

 

 

Self hate is a voluntary institution.

 

 

How much time has been expended playing 'heavy in the mix', in contrast to being 'successful in the sauce'? That natural gift you have...better handle that!

 

 

Do diligence not dirt.

 

 

I belong to the divine source from which I originated.

 

 

Rumors run wild when one sacrifices for self and temporarily forsakes those who assume entitlement to one's persona.

 

 

I'm not cruisin' this opportunity in time and space for you to like or dislike my 'get-down'; I'm here 'cause I'm down to get it right by the time I return to the 'mothaship'. I remain a work in progress.

 

 

Circumstance points to deeper meaning.

 

 

The journey is far beyond the concept of skin or physicality, yet we dangle persona before false kings and fake witnesses.

 

 

Ego and pride is a two headed twist.

 

 

The journey of living is far beyond mere physicality, and the soul is a sacred temple worth preserving.

 

 

Until we get it right, we shall return to the earth-school time after time.

 

 

Intense, sustained focus fuels manifestation. 

 

 

The planet is littered with irresponsible gods.

 

 

Pride can be friend, ego can be foe...depending on which one we choose, or not, to conquer.

 

 

Realize clarity from calamity.

 

 

Bullying is a coward's fear of self-realization.

 

 

Freedom gifted by man is not freedom.

 

 

"Your life"...maybe, but certainly your opportunity.

 

 

It matters...the pause between inhale, exhale.

 

 

Love not defined by rule(s), but by passionate agreement(s) of compromise.

 

 

Most readily pronounce self-righteousness, yet conceal transgressions.

 

 

Thirsty Celebrity: Many moons in the making, few seconds for the taking.

 

 

No time for pity; persistence begs you.

 

 

Loss is uncelebrated gain.

 

 

Dream for certain, but wish not.

 

 

Physical experience ends as it began - in silence.

 

 

Be deeply affected by the voice of conscience.

 

 

What you "heard" is nothing more than that. And unless confirmed, yield not to gossip's temptation.
