The Sacred Shroud

Shroud of Turin

The origins of the image on the shroud are the subject of intense debate.
  Scientific publications and theologians have presented diverse arguments for 
 authenticity and methods of forgery.

One writer says,
 The Shroud is an image of God's love as well as of human sin.
The imprint left by the tortured body of the Crucified One,
  attests to the tremendous human capacity for causing pain and death to one's fellow man,
 it stands as an icon of the suffering of the innocent in every age.

You are very powerful,
 provided you know how powerful you are.
-Yogi Bhajan-

 We try to avoid the unknown by not facing our uncertain future.
Whether it's death, failure, ridicule, pain or injury
 We avoid change because we feel  that nothing is guaranteed.
 How can we develop inner strength to grow, heal, and evolve without changing..?

Our lives are a reflection of how we handle adversity and how we inspire others to do the same.
In sales and life, your most powerful learning tool is your power of observation.
 Valuable skills can be picked up just from observing various business/personal situations.

 Once upon a time, mighty dinosaurs ruled the earth.
 They no longer even exist..... Why?
 Because they didn’t adapt to change. Don’t risk extinction!

-Dan Kennedy-

 You may think that in life, a lot of things happen to you along the way.
 The truth is, in life, you happen to a lot of things along the way.
Choosing to live your life by your own choice is the greatest freedom you will ever have.
The attributes you project and inspire in  those whose lives you touch will be your legacy.

Freeing your spirit can be as simple as loosing a little weight.....
not physical weight but emotional weight.
When we are carrying a little extra weight but we are still functional,
 we become complacent, content.
 We adapt to the 'added pounds'.
When we accept the extra pounds as part of life it sabotages our focus.

In our tradition, we die three deaths.

The first death is a physical one.
Our second death is when our bodies are lowered into the ground,
 returned to mother earth, out of sight.
The third and most definitive death is when there is no one left alive that remembers us. 

The positive attributes you project and inspire
 into the lives you touch will be your legacy.
