3 Simple tips to feeling Self-directed & Accomplished.

James Ronald Ryun is an American track and field athlete who reminds us that “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”

Stephen Covey recommends you decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – Pleasantly, smilingly, non-apologetically – to say ‘no’ to other things … And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ for your higher priorities burning inside.”

Here are 3 simple tips for feeling accomplished and on track.

1.)    Start Small

A tiny habit is easier to stick to — Pick something, a project, a workout, etc. Your goal is to make it effortless and encompasses your priorities!  This habit should take you little time to do. say no more than 10 -30 minutes a day,

that first week, aim to complete this goal just three times, in the first week, then increase that number once your habit feels natural.

2.)   When to do it

If you have a habit already in place then hitchhike off that habit, having a habit that is already second nature, will be a good time to transition into scheduling a new habit right after. An example is to add a new habit right after eating breakfast or just after a physical workout. Think about your day and vacant time slots, when can you spare a moment to insert a new habit? Pairing new habits with an existing habit can help make it seamless.

3.)  Practice makes perfect

You’ll probably need a few nudges before your new habit becomes second nature. That’s why siteofcontact.net., subscribers can jot a note to me under the heading Habit Building Reminders and I will send an email on any day of the week, you request it.

The more regularly you practice, the more quickly Habits will become just another part of your life.

“If you do not pour water on your plant, what will happen? It slowly withers and dies. Our habits will also slowly wither and die away if we do not give them an opportunity to manifest. You need not fight to stop a habit. Just don’t give it an opportunity to repeat itself.” – Yogi Swami Satchidananda.

So to recap feeling self-directed and accomplished, turn priorities into a manageable habit – Starts small – Pair it with something you are already doing – Be consistent.  Now that you know the secret, begin your habit setting journey now, and jot me a line now and again about how you are doing.

So-Called Christian Has Erection (theonion.com)

Daugherty calls himself a follower of Christ despite being physically aroused.

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO—Alarmed and appalled sources confirmed today that in complete defiance of his biblical duty to live a life that is holy and pleasing to God, local 27-year-old and so-called Christian Jeff Daugherty currently has an erection.

Daugherty, who claims to abide by the word of the Lord and walk in the footsteps of Jesus, is nonetheless now in a state of physical arousal, a development that has sent shockwaves through his community and deeply troubled his fellow churchgoers.

“How could anyone who professes to be a Christian fall to such shameful depths?” said Janet Hindsley, a member of Daugherty’s church who told reporters she was stunned and disgusted at news of the man’s engorged genitals. “I know people are capable of these kinds of ghastly practices. I’m not naïve. But you just don’t expect this sort of sinful behavior from someone you worship with every Sunday.”

“The thought that I’ve probably shared a pew with him before makes me sick to my stomach,” she added, shaking her head in revulsion.

Though Daugherty reportedly reads the Bible almost every day and regularly speaks out about his faith, sources said his present titillated condition puts him repulsively at odds with his assertion that he has accepted Jesus Christ as his savior. While many church members said they are praying for the soul of a man they believe has gone down a dark path, others are calling for the “pervert” and “heretic” to be expelled from their congregation.

According to Darren Howe, who belongs to the same men’s prayer group as Daugherty, this isn’t the first time the purported believer in the Holy Scripture has become erect.

“He confided to me that he gets them at least once a week, and sometimes every day,” said Howe with visible distaste, adding that while he was revolted by the admission, he encouraged Daugherty in his battle to remain pure before the eyes of the Lord. “Apparently he’s even woken up in the morning with one, as horribly depraved as that is. And this is a man who has children! He’s got that… that thingunder the same roof as his kids!”

“How could Jeff let his body become an instrument of Satan?” he continued. “He must renounce this evil in his life and repent.”

Fearing Daugherty may bring his tumescent phallus into their place of worship Sunday, some church members have appealed to their pastor, the Rev. Allen Whitlock, to prevent the “insult to all creation” from entering God’s house.

“While it’s true we are all sinners, that doesn’t give us an excuse to live as wickedly as we please,” Whitlock said when reached for comment. “I’ve known Jeff a long time. I’ve had dinner at his house. I’ve prayed with his family at their kitchen table. It unnerves me to think that right there in his lap, out of sight and inches away from me, Jeff might very well have been quietly sinning. Because even if no one else can see it, the Lord can.”

“Do I want a man singing songs of praise in my church while his body is flush with such impurity?” he continued. “No, I do not. It’s an abomination, and it must stop.”

At press time, the pastor stood before a hastily convened vigil outside Daugherty’s house, urging his congregation to pray for the fallen man’s erection to retreat and remain dormant so that he might one day resume his walk with God.

“Star Trends astrological column for November 2016” by Robert W. McEwen

robert_mcewen

Planetary cycles bring out certain dynamics that are archetypal patterns of the collective psyche. There is an undercurrent on a global level that wants and tends to express certain psychological patterns of the masses. The Sign of Capricorn represents form and structure in its many expressions: Physical form, governments, economics, and sexual definitions. Astrologers have observed strong evidence that there are provable conclusions in these patterns of expression during the Pluto cycles through the astrological signs of the zodiac. Pluto is a heavy weight and believe me…it is a planet. A very powerful one at that. The “hoo-ha” about it not being a planet is hilarious, but that is another topic for another article. It is very noticeable that during the Pluto transit through the zodiacal sign of Capricorn that people will behave certain ways, and economics, sexuality expressions transform, and huge governmental structures are dismantled and reborn defined in new ways! It may have appeared like it was dooms day…and a renesaunce or “rebirth happens! Pluto takes approximately 14 years to go through a sign, and about 248 years to go totally around in its complete cycle. We are currently in a Pluto in Capricorn phase and have about another 7 years of crashing and burning, like the Phoenix bird, and out of the ashes comes a totally new and fresh expression that seem unpredictable! Parts of the pattern are definable and predictable, but heaps of it is not. The last cycle of this combination was in 1778 in a close orb to 1776… on top of the very founding of the United States of America where religion and economic structures of England were dismantled and a new country was created here. We are currently under the power of this kind of change again. Seen from this planetary archetypal perspective we gain insight what dynamics are crashing and the trends of the rebuilding of the structures of this country. The appearances we are observing during this election process are shocking if not down-right embarrassing to any intelligent observer. So, this poses the question of “what can we learn from the past?” so we don’t repeat the things that we don’t have to make this transition easier.

Capricorn likes to define reality in polarities like good or bad, male or female. Pluto destroys that paradigm allowing for a more inclusive holistic perception for the collective. There are infinite expressions of sexuality in unique patterns. A panoramic view of reality that is non-linear. It is holographic and quantum physics in intelligence. This “universal identification” allows each of us, and to collective be accepting of gender free labels. Freedom from that breaks down structures that government, economic, and family has built its identity, but during this evolutionary expansion destroys much of that. This dismantling will keep unfolding for another 7 years, so about 2024 a new shape of boundaries will occur, new words that are unpredictable. Trans-formation is happening and the sign of Capricorn with all its judgments, laws, politics, and economics will crumble as we know it. Enjoy this freedom and with this knowledge, a new security that is much more expansive and inclusive will emerge as a result. Androgyny in infinitely unique creative expressions is unfolding letting us be ourselves without judgment. There are as many sexes as there are people seem to be the motto of Pluto going through Capricorn. It is consciousness based identification rather than form….it is transformative for our culture. Enjoy your rebirth!

Movie recommendation: “Moonlight”


★ ‘MOONLIGHT’ (R, 1:50) This quiet, lyrical film, chronicling three chapters in the life of a young man named Chiron, can be fairly described as a movie about growing up poor, gay and black in America. It is a great deal more than that, but it is also exactly that. Directed by Barry Jenkins and based on a play by Tarell Alvin McCraney, the movie treats its characters with an empathy that feels radical, and renders their lives with an aesthetic care that is exquisite and exciting.

Mythology: HIPPOLYTUS

2. Slaves to Hippolytus

Hippolytus (Ancient Greek: Ἱππόλυτος, Hippolytos) is an Ancient Greek tragedy by Euripides, based on the myth of Hippolytus, son of Theseus. The play was first produced for the City Dionysia of Athens in 428 BC and won first prize as part of a trilogy.

Euripides first treated the myth in a previous play, Hippolytos Kalyptomenos (Ἱππόλυτος καλυπτόμενοςHippolytus Veiled), which is now lost; what is known of it is based on echoes found in other ancient writings. The earlier play, and the one that has survived are both titled Hippolytus, but in order to distinguish the two they have traditionally been given the names, Hippolytus Kalyptomenos (“Hippolytus veiled”) and Hippolytus Stephanophoros (“Hippolytus the wreath bearer”). It is thought that the contents to the missing Hippolytos Kalyptomenos portrayed a shamelessly lustful Phaedra who directly propositioned Hippolytus, which apparently offended the play’s audience.

Euripides revisits the myth in Hippolytos Stephanophoros (Ἱππόλυτος στεφανοφόρος – “Hippolytus who wears a crown”), its title refers to the crown of garlands Hippolytus wears as a worshipper of Artemis. In this version Phaedra fights against her own sexual desires, which have been incited by Aphrodite.

Phaedra agonizing over her love for Hippolytus. Phèdre by Alexandre Cabanel

Synopsis

The play is set in Troezen, a coastal town in the northeastern Peloponnese. Theseus, the king of Athens, is serving a year’s voluntary exile after having murdered a local king and his sons. His illegitimate son is Hippolytus, whose birth is the result of Theseus’s rape of the Amazon Hippolyta. Hippolytus has been trained since childhood by the king of Troezen, Pittheus.

At the opening of the play Aphrodite, Goddess of love, explains that Hippolytus has sworn chastity and refuses to revere her. Instead, he honors the Goddess of the hunt, Artemis. This has led her to initiate a plan of vengeance on Hippolytus. When Hippolytus went to Athens two years previously Aphrodite inspired Phaedra, Hippolytus’ stepmother, to fall in love with him.

Hippolytus appears with his followers and shows reverence to a statue of Artemis, a chaste goddess. A servant warns him about slighting Aphrodite, but Hippolytus refuses to listen.

The chorus, consisting of young married women of Troezen, enters and describes how Theseus’s wife, Phaedra has not eaten or slept in three days. Phaedra, sickly, appears with her nurse. After an agonizing discussion, Phaedra finally confesses why she is ill: she loves Hippolytus. The nurse and the chorus are shocked. Phaedra explains that she must starve herself and die with her honor intact. However, the nurse quickly retracts her initial response and tells Phaedra that she has a magical charm to cure her. However, in an aside she reveals different plans.

The nurse, after making Hippolytus swear not to tell anyone, informs Hippolytus of Phaedra’s desire and suggests that Hippolytus consider yielding to her. He reacts with a furious tirade and threatens to tell his father, Theseus, everything as soon as he arrives. Phaedra realizes disaster has fallen. After making the chorus swear secrecy, she goes inside and hangs herself.

Theseus returns and discovers his wife’s dead body. Because the chorus is sworn to secrecy, they cannot tell Theseus why she killed herself. Theseus discovers a letter on Phaedra’s body, which falsely asserts that she was raped by Hippolytus. Enraged, Theseus curses his son either to death or at least exile. To execute the curse, Theseus calls upon his father, the god Poseidon, who has promised to grant his son three wishes. Hippolytus enters and protests his innocence but cannot tell the truth because of the binding oath that he swore. Taking his wife’s letter as proof, Theseus exiles his son.

The chorus sings a lament for Hippolytus.

A messenger enters and describes a gruesome scene to Theseus; as Hippolytus got in his chariot to leave the kingdom, a bull roared out of the sea, frightening his horses, which dashed his chariot among the rocks, dragging Hippolytus behind. Hippolytus seems to be dying. The messenger protests Hippolytus’ innocence, but Theseus refuses to believe him.

Theseus is glad that Hippolytus is suffering and about to die. But then the goddess, Artemis, appears and rages at Theseus for killing his own son; she brutally tells him the truth: there was no rape, Phaedra had lied, his son was innocent. Theseus is painfully devastated by this revelation. Hippolytus is carried in physically battered and barely clinging to life. In the last moments of the play, Hippolytus forgives his father, kind words are exchanged between father and son, and then Hippolytus dies.

Interpretations

In this play, all characters, the humans and gods, have imperfections and can be jealous and brutal in vengeance. They all have blindnesses that keep them from seeing and understanding others with empathy and these blindnesses result in tragedy. The play presents two goddesses who represent two aspects of the human spirit in conflict: One aspect is love, represented by Aphrodite and personified by Phaedra. The second aspect is what the play refers to as sophrosyne, which is represented by Artemis and personified by Hippolytus. Sophrosyne can be defined in part as being chaste, pure, clearheaded and untainted by sexual desire.
