THE LITTLE (THINK BIG) PERSON THAT COULD...

LIVING AS IF...
I am a writer and a product designer. Before I know it I will get my book published (in a big way) AND sell my product around the world! I will do this simply because I say it, see it, feel it, and I am living into it. Also, the message I have is simple. All the magic is within us already. Each one of us is already empowered. We just let lots of stuff, stories and conditioning get in the way. But, for any brave souls who brush off the dust, erase those stories we tell ourselves, and take those first few steps….well, we eventually find out there really was nothing to fear! It’s all true. Life is what we make it.
I will share with any future entrepreneurs out there to live as if.  Someone recently asked me if I were a millionaire. I almost went into shock. At the moment I am the furthest thing from it. Yet, I live as if I am. I have the mindset, and it’s happening…

Here I am with Mr. Johnson of Johnson and Johnson
Today on Twitter I am with Richard Branson, well, kind of (it’s a must see @reneegold).  Follow me here, and on Twitter for an up-close and personal look at a Bona Fide Rags to Riches story in the making. In all of my life I have not ever had so little and been close to so much. Yet, my heart, spirit, and soul are as rich as can be. That is this entrepreneur’s secret! I believe I am already there.  I have a vision that I will not waver from. I am living into it….

 My gift, goal, and mission in life is to inspire, uplift, entertain, and empower others.  I pray I keep rising to the calling, hopefully with the right balance of humor and heart! Stay tuned…what I have up my sleeves is BIG. I believe I have created the next “IT” item….and once I get there; well,I am already planning on how I will give back!
With love,
Renee Faith Gold

Keep the Faith and you will see the GOLD!

YOGA IN A BOTTLE...

A miracle drink...
 
Temple Turmeric is my drink of choice these days.
 
I was introduced to this health concoction
at a recent yoga open house.
 
One sip and I was hooked.
It taste healthy. And, I feel healthy drinking it.
The ingredients are simply turmeric, ginger, spearmint and things like coconut
water, and greed tea.

 These days health experts cant say enough good about Turmeric and so,
there's a great deal of anti-inflammatory goodness in each little bottle.
Not to mention I have heard some say it helps
with weight loss.
 
I might be able to
get my bikini body back
 
 The Turmeric they use is the Best on Earth from Hawaii.
Quite simply I feel really good when I drink any of their sublime elixirs. It even looks healthy!
 
And so, as the creator and writer of a blog called Ageless how could I not share this great new product with my followers and readers?!
 
 
See you at the Temple:
 
And, I must add, that I am not a doctor or nutritionist so,
please check with yours if you have any health concerns or restricted diet.

ILLUMINATE YOURSELF...

 
In the words of the ancient Chinese philosopher ...
 
If you understand others you are smart.
If you understand yourself you are illuminated...
 
When I heard those words last night from a very wise friend
they truly resonated with me on a deep level.
That's exactly what I would hope to be
*ILLUMINATED*
 
 
THE WAY THERE  of course is self-reflection.
We must, as my last post stated, look at ourselves as to how we
are actually living. And, with courage and compassion keep looking within, more openly and honestly without judgment
to our truest essence.
 
To see things clearly is a serene happiness and freedom. And, eventually we become
a beacon of light for others.
 
Here is to clear seeing, wise view, and, lighting up the world!
 
Can you take a moment today, and every day to self-reflect and see what you have learned. And what do you know about your true self? It is not so easy to do, but...
 
Connect to heaven and harmony awaits. I promise...
 
For anyone interested in Lao Tzu:
He was a philosopher and poet of ancient China. He is best known as the reputed author of the Tao Te Ching and the founder of philosophical Taoism.
 
These days he can be found on Google.

THE ART OF LIVING...

with Larry Rosenberg (far right)
 
The names of two of his books are Breath by Breath, and Three Steps to Awakening.

The name of his recent course at CIMC (Cambridge Insight Meditation Center) the meditation center he founded, is Don’t Turn Away. I am talking about the incomparable Larry Rosenberg. Larry is a truly gifted, compassionate, and wise meditation teacher, writer and scholar. I have had the great pleasure of sitting with him, studying with him, and even getting a hug from him!
Simply Being, not grasping, fearing, or worrying
 
Over the last nine years I have been a student at his center. They are very serious about meditation and the Buddha’s teachings. One thing I can say with certainty is when you truly open your eyes to your own life, and, see all of it fully (the good, the not so good, and the in-between) you will slowly be able to live a more full, vibrant, and awakened life. One thing I learned at CIMC is “Wise View is everything.” 
So many things bother us or get in our way, but, if we step back and truly see, fully see things as they are from a wise perspective, it can and will help us. The cause of our suffering usually leads back to us. Self-awareness is crucial to living a happier and less bogged down life. Freeing ourselves up to live a more vibrant life is an extraordinary gift to give ourselves, our family, and ultimately the world. It’s so much  easier to blame someone else for our problems and woes. But, for peace of mind, taking time to sit in silence, truly look at ourselves, and pay attention to how we are actually living, well, it sure seems worth it to me. You will literally breathe easier…and moment by moment appreciate life so much more as you fully bloom as a human being. What could be better than taking full  responsibility for your own life?! Not always so easy to do and that is why Larry titles the class, Don’t Turn Away.
Throwing fear aside and taking my Ideas to Harvard
The only secret is practice, practice, practice and be extremely kind to yourself every step along the way as you cultivate the extraordinary art of living well...

LIVING A COSMIC LIFE...

LIVING A COSMIC LIFE
 
THE BEST ONLINE COURSE IN THE UNIVERSE

Course Description

This course is about the Big Picture, the Big Questions, and Living a Life That Matters. It's about discovering how we are from a cosmic perspective, how are all connected to a larger universe, and how we can discover and align ourselves with the dynamics of the cosmos in our everyday lives. We'll also tackle big topics such as life, death, and spirituality and their role in our lives.
Imagine going forward into the world each day, knowing that you are part of something much larger than yourself. Imagine how your relationships might transform if you recognized that the forces drawing you to your partner are the very same forces that shaped the galaxies, created the stars, and formed the molten Earth? Imagine what you could achieve in your life, knowing that you had 13.8 billion years of cosmic history and the forces of the universe behind you? Imagine how your life would transform once you saw yourself and your life as part of a much larger pattern of cosmic proportions and meaning?
These and other questions will be explored in this series of short but impactful and richly illustrated lectures on our place in the cosmos and our relationship to it. Each lecture will be accompanied by a downloadable transcript of the material as well as follow-up questions to consider for further reflection and insight. The course is self-paced, and participants are welcome to explore in an afternoon, or over the course of several weeks or months. Once you enroll in the course, you'll have permanent ongoing access to the course and its materials, allowing you to revisit any aspect of it when desired or needed. 
Anyone interested in living a spiritually-informed life aligned with the dynamics of the evolving cosmos will find a rich experience in taking this course. Whether you take this course as an individual or as part of a study group, you'll have food for thought for years to come.
