Life is like a magnet. We all attract and repel all the time. We attract the things that are most like us and our thoughts, and we repel things that aren’t like us. Once we know what we love and what isn’t important to us, we attract more of what we love to us—from all sides.

Life is like a mission. When we have big dreams of what we’d like our lives to be, we are receiving our mission from headquarters. It is meant for us, or we wouldn’t have even had the idea. We are worthy. We deserve it. It is meant for us. And once we get it, we’ll receive a new mission.
Life is like choosing the latest gadget. Look for the real value—a brand name isn’t as important as knowing that the product delivers on its promises. Knowing what’s really important to us, we can always attract the people and circumstances into our lives that really enrich our experience.

Life is like TV. We can change the channel, but it’ll take a lot more energy to change what shows are made. For that we’d have to co-create by working with producers, directors, film, actors, etc. We are co-creators. We don’t have total control, we just work with the energy already set into motion in the universe (or the industry!)
Life is like our favorite pet. When we focus our time and attention on loving our pets, they return love to us. When we focus our attention on what we love about life, those things will be attracted to come into our world.
Life is like placing an order. Our experiences today are the result of orders we placed before, they’re only just arriving. If we want new experiences, we have to place new orders, and then wait for them to arrive. We place our orders with our focus and attention on what we want, not on what we don’t want. That’s just the same as ordering the same junk over and over again.
Life is like a well-oiled machine. An attitude of gratitude is the oil that keeps things running smoothly. If we fill our lives with the dirt and grime of complaints, blaming others, making excuses, cursing our fate or other negative things, we muck up the ability for parts to move and they eventually come to a grinding halt and have to be overhauled. Gratitude keeps us moving, flowing freely and moving where we want to go.
This book was given to me as a gift by a friend who knows me very well. (Thanks, Meghana!) It’s the personal and true story of a British guy who decides that Sri Lanka is the place to build his ecological dream.
I related to this book on so many levels—from the part of me who is an expat and understands the culture clashes to the part of me who sees Sri Lanka as a paradise that must be preserved, to the part of me that loves the connection between spirituality and ecology. It’s all here!
With chapters like “Lanka or La-La-Land?” about his decision about whether to live in Sri Lanka or Los Angeles (to which I would answer “both!”) and passages like, “I found myself on a spiritual quest. I began to believe that the world was engaged in a transition, shifting our values from competition and greed to cooperation and synthesis, giving birth to a new vision, the ‘divine marriage’ of inner and outer, male and female, reason and intuition, Matter and Spirit,” Rory Spowers continued to strike very personal chords.
The beauty is, he’s done it. He has taken 60 acres in the South of Sri Lanka and dedicated it to organic produce, green tea, natural ecosystems, sustainable living, and marrying the best of nature and innovation. I can’t wait to visit! And I love the book, so I’ll be sharing more soon.

Life is like an electrical charge. Energy itself is neutral. It will work whether we plug it into a TV or a tablesaw.
We make it feel good or bad with our choices, but we can always make new choices that feel better.
It's like our thoughts, or our prayers. If we focus our energy and attention on what we don't like or want instead of what we do like and want in our lives, we are giving those things our energy.
We are the socket and we give our energy to whatever we allow to be plugged in to us. Does that make sense?
Even if we pray for something bad NOT to happen, we are investing more thought into the negative than the positive. Keep your energy and attention focused on the positive!
Life is like changing clothes. You have the power to change your life by changing your thoughts.
It doesn’t mean the outside world or other people change, it is our approach and our point of view that changes, and that makes all the difference.
Actually, there's a lot more to clothes. "Clothes make the man," they say and popular shows like "What Not to Wear" show the power between how we feel about ourselves, and how we show ourselves to the world.
