Free Ideas Part 1: Google Wonderland


Ok, so woke up from this wickedly awesome dream!  I thought I was looking at a computer that turned out to be actually and Inverted Super-dome connected to a power tower that traveled around a wonderland:

Here's the cool part:  this was Google world:  you could go to any place and ACTUALLY see it from the satellite view, but with a fun twist: it was LIVE!

Here's the point:  GOOGLE NEEDS TO HAVE A WONDERLAND!  YES, A FUN INFORMATION WONDERLAND.  IN THIS WONDERLAND, THE TOP WEBSITES IN THE WORLD CAN HAVE REPRESENTATIVES GIVING FREE TIPS FOR HOW TO LOOK FOR, SEARCH FOR, CAPITALIZE TIME AND ENJOYMENT FROM THEIR WEBSITE.  

I WOULD EVEN TAKE A YEARLY GOOGLE EXPO.  WOULDN'T THAT BE AWESOME!?

I think a business that promotes staying at home and working from a desk, OWES it to the world to create something ORGANIC and fun to the world.  That's one way to give back to the environment we so often neglect these days!

Let me know what you think??  Email, message or visit me at "God wants you to smile" on Facebook :)

What Does Our Lives and a Very Substantial Sandwich Have in Common? :)


Our journey in this world is like a wonderful sandwich.   It has the section in general:  a beginning a middle and an end.   The beginning is generally light, the end is light, but the middle is very heavy, very substantial, and it's where you get all the protein.  It takes work to prepare the middle.  Most of us are in the middle and it takes work to give a sandwich the quality it deserves.  Today let's make our sandwich better and we start by digging into his word which lasts forever:  The best quality in this entire existence   May you be filled with His grace and peace to have the best sandwiched life ever! :D

God bless :)

The Presence of God Brings Us into Wonderful New Habits

Happy Valentines Day! :D   

Today is a time for everything to think about love.  However, this is also a time that we might lose sense of what presence of love we want.   The presence of God and His love brings us into a new habit.   The presence of God interrupts every bad habit we have.  How?  God is sovereign and He rules on High!  It's not often our circumstances that causes us to be in despair  but it's what we THINK about our circumstances that causes the latter.  If we think another person is in control over how we feel, we give the person our joy, our hope, our dreams, and often we fall into depression because a man was never meant to carry that kind of power..the thought of a fallible person whose righteousness adds up to filthily rags in comparison to God's is depressing in and of itself.  But if we think about our circumstance in the presence of God, it interrupts our habit of falling into despair, thinking about our failures and all our shortcomings.  God's presence brings us into a place where we shift our thoughts over from circumstances and people to a God who is over control of them all!  When we shift our trust, sadness has to go!  The sad thing is, sometimes our bodies our so used to routine that it often becomes accustomed to having sadness there, and our of pride, doesn't want to lose it even for exchange of constant and increasing Joy in Christ Jesus alone!  We have to deny ourselves this type of sadness (as strange as it sounds! But our bodies our so tricky like that, we'll hold on to anything that's has been made a routine..which also means we can make new ones!) and keep holding to happiness in Christ Jesus who reigns in control over our lives in joy and ever increasing happiness forever!  God help us to deny ourselves of our prideful habits and lean on the joy of knowing your Son, and your Son alone.  May we find trust and contentment fully in Him this Valentines Day.  

Yay! First Night Doing Stand Up Comedy! :D



Had my first experience doing comedy!  I am so thankful that I did it!  It reminded me of the thrill of life that I  still really, really need in my life!  I need to go out every single night and just do what I need to do!  Comedy,  Music Performances, Whatever seriously!  I also think about volunteering, at Adelante for example!  I need to be out there and JUST DO IT!   I'm like a dare devil sometimes.  But here's what I like about comedy:  It helps you to not only be open and honest about your life, but also to be in a sense clear, positive, and uplifting about your past, your present, your perspectives, and your future!  It's rich!  I saw people laugh at the things I had to say!  It rocked SERIOUSLY!   I know that the more I do it, the more I want and need to do it!  God is going to open doors that NO MAN CAN SHUT!   It's up to us to try.

What are some other ways, place I can get involved in???

Philippians 4:8 and the Law of Attraction :)



Listen to Michael J. Losier and think about why I tied in what he is saying to Philippians 4:8, which states,

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things."

THIS, will DEFINITELY be worth your time : )  







" Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

What Price Are You Willing to Pay??



Are you willing to pay the price for what you want in life?   I got news for ya!  The two payments that many people neglect are these:  rest  and  rejoicing!   The Bible says, it's the "sacrifice of praise"   I hurts our pride when we smile sometimes because we think that we need to earn a smile..i guess?   But going around with a feeling of satisfaction  knowing that God has given you everything you need!  Complete contentment is a sacrifice of praise to the Lord!  God is great and good in your life is a sacrifice of praise!  Cheering up and just smiling knowing that every single thing is working for not just your regular good, but for the most powerful, awesome, surprising, astonishing greatest good in your life beyond your imagination and dreams ever!  Offer to God the sacrifice of praise!  And yes, fasting for years, praying, working over the clock is sometimes good, but nothing beats following Jesus and "just believing!"   When you read God's word remember God's intent for you and say to yourself, "My life is getting better and better every day and in every way; God's blessings are incredibly chasing me down every moment of my life!"  Become a champion at sharing joy, especially at times when you should be otherwise!  This is what the disciples did and they saw the exciting hand of God most High!  Get excited!  God is about to melt the cold frosty snow in your life!   Now, are you willing to pray the price??   Smile.  Be joyful in the morning!  Make a list of things you are super grateful for :)

Rest:  remember this.  Your body is not meant to work a tone none stop..Rest well!  I need to really remember this.  Sometimes the best rest is doing something you truly enjoy.  I feel for people who go to work everyday and neglect doing things that bring them real joy in their lives.  They go around wearing a plastic face, always thinking they have to "turn on the look" but the truth is the pain of their neglect is showing over the look they are giving.

But real rest is very important.  Go and do nothing, or don't let your mind get so serious all the time.  Think about stuff that you like or love to do, and don't you dare condemn yourself for thinking lightly for a day.  Give your mind a break.   Become a professional not only in your working field, but also in enjoying your life, in rejoicing, and especially in resting, so you can be fresh, ready and willing to bless others!  I don't know about you, but when I feel great I gotta share my feeling with others.  Go and share your joy with someone this week!  Have a great, great one!

There are unlimited blessings for you!   Saying that, what we put in our lives and our bodies is very important.  I noticed as I looked on the product counters in the aisles at the local grocery store that all of the highest of quality items are placed at the top, upper shelves.  Go look next time you enter the grocery store!  Look at the items at the top of each row.  They're at the top!  There's, of course, great purpose in this, I believe.  It's obvious that the items that most costumers shop for are in the center row, the cheapest at the bottom, and what's considered the most expensive or highest prices is normally at the top.

I have something to say to you now:  This is life!  This is what life is!  Everyday we stand in front of life (the food items on the counter); we stand in front of a food shelve, and we tell ourselves what is "for us" and what is not for us.   We decide and we take those items and I believe our lives reflect just that.  I challenge you to examine and look at the items you are choosing.  I bet you will be amazed at how you never stopped to even look at the top shelf, or maybe you never stopped to look down at the bottom shelf (good idea in my opinion), subconsciously thinking that, that area will "never be for you".    I dare you to look at that "top shelf" again, because that shelf IS for you!  You CAN afford it!  How do I know that?  Because God made you, and you are NOT of low quality.  In fact, there isn't anything about you that is of low quality!  You are a success!  You are an entrepreneur in your life!  The moment you start looking through eyes of quality, you'll be surprised at how many things of the greatest quality are around you now!   Try it at the grocery store!  Go there, have a budget, and get only items of highest quality..  Remember, it's not necessary about the price! Nor is it necessary about the quantity    It's about the attitude!  When you go in the grocery store, it's just like you're going into life!  I have a question:  Do you go in with a plan?  Do you have in mind what you want?  If so, what are they?   There's a big difference in what we allow in our lives to be of great quality and every week we have the opportunity to examine and allow great quality into our lives from our local grocery store, every day!  Remember, your attitude about life consciously or subconscious, reflect in EVERY area of your life right now.  The life of every person is very consistent actually according to how we choose to think.  In order to change this, we have to start somewhere!  Why not at your local grocery store! :)   Diagnose and see how your attitude guides your life.  It's amazing how your attitude will completely change the items you select at a local grocery store, but it's a great example of how we decide to live our every day lives.  What's ironic is, you might find that, with a budget, you can not spend less; and someone might say, "Well, J, that's cool for you, but I have a HUGE family and we just can't afford all that awesome quality stuff!" but here's something I want you to look at:   Have you ever had such a great meal that you  didn't want to ruin it by eating something of lesser quality?  The meal you ate made you feel so good that that burrito plopped in front of you in the evening just didn't look appealing to you anymore! That's the same with shopping for quality as opposed to only for quantity.  My father has always been one of the best for shopping at the grocery store.  My dad enjoyed it!  He loved to see what he could get, even of high quality, and still save on his grocery bill!  We quickly found that the satisfaction of knowing that you are of high quality and you are only allowing higher quality in your life, always gives you a sense of satisfaction and sensation of a positive attitude about success, big and small; and  the idea of quantity slowly seems of less importance to you and your family.

I know this may sound funny, but I usually gain weight when my refrigerator is empty!  Strange right!  It said that this is because when we feel a sense of lack, our attitude of quality goes out the door, and our bodies immediately go into survival mode and instantly go gathering quantity: get the most calories in you as you can because your body doesn't see food around.   The saying is true:  Quality is better than quantity.  We can't fool our bodies, our bodies know this better than we think.   Here's two things:  tell your body what you need to eat by surrounding yourself around great quality! What a great psychological reminder for yourself and for your body:  If we had time, I would associate this with other areas in our lives, but I will do that later..:)   You are of great quality, you are no going to "go hungry" ever!  You will never be "lacking"!  Remember, your body responds to your attitude every day!   A quality life will change hunger pains into a sense of satisfaction  contentment and fulfillment in your dietary life just by changing your attitude about life.   Try it out today and see what you are buying at the grocery store and why. Be HONEST with yourself!   You'll find some amazing discoveries about yourself.   Remember, our attitude about life reflects in EVERYTHING WE DO EVERY MOMENT OF EVERYDAY.  So why not take a clear and easy test to see what we are thinking about our lives, and start by making small changes that will make a big difference.

I challenge you to go into the grocery store next time, and see what you think about the higher quality items...maybe you will try out buying only things of highest of quality.  If you do, don't do it for the price, nor worry about the quantity, but reflect on that fact that you ARE  of high quality and ONLY a high quality person who will ONLY allow highest of quality for you in your life :)  

Have a great day! :)

Finding Happiness



God has a specific plan and purpose for everybody, and he wraps it in a little thing we call:  "Happiness!"    
God has a specific purpose for us, and he places it in the center of our being so that we always know, that we know, that we know what we need to be up to.  That way we'll have it forever.  It was God's joy to wire us that way in the first place so no one would understand, but later they would and praise God for it!  
It's the joy in doing what we've always been gifted to do.  Yes, I mean if it's dancing, than it's dancing.  If opera, then opera.  If computers, then computers.  If it's baking, then baking!  None of these are wrong. I'm looking at a CD book right now entitled, "Delivering Happiness:  A Path To Profits, Passion, and Purpose."   The CEO of Zappos.com, Inc, Tony Hsieh talked about how his Taiwanese parents would pay for all his clothes and all he would ever need, if he just went for the MD to become a Doctor!   He didn't go for it, mostly because he wasn't convinced that getting that degree was the only way that he could find success.  In my opinion, his parents meant well, but they didn't get this principle:  God has already placed in that boy or that girl what they have been called specifically by Him to do.  How do we know?  We ask them!  What do you want to do?  What do you enjoy doing?   God made us to pursue the joy in our lives: the happiness in our lives breeds life for others.  The joy set in us by really obeying God's call to live with overflowing joy gives us more than enough to do everything God's created us to do!   That's why the Bible says, "For the JOY set before him, he endured the cross."  Only Jesus was powerfully anointed and joy-filled equipped to do this.  Was not easy!  But praise God for the JOY set before him to endure it for all of us on our behalf!   Just like how Jim Carey is joy-filled equipped to make people laugh or how it was Bill Gates joy to build technical devices we call computers.  I'm sure they don't have perfect days all the time, but the joy of doing what they love gives them great power and inspires countless people time and time again!  It's now up to us to find that joy.  Finding happiness:

I'm finding my community.   Yeah, it's pretty much settled.  Music is the place for me...it's what I need to be doing.  It's not only where I lose the worry about life, but I encourage a crap loud of people as well!  Not only do I encourage people, but they greatly encourage me as well!  You know, I was talking with my dad today over coffee, and wo! Blessed!  It was just a blessing to hear about my dad and mom and how they dated and what it was like.  So great!  So as we were talking we chatted about how life is about enjoying your life.  If you are not enjoying your life, go and find your happiness!  If you are not enjoying your life, how do you expect anyone you're with to?  It's not (and never will be) their job to make you happy.  You need to find your happiness and your crowd will already be there waiting for you.  Everyone needs this.  We listen often to (fill in the blank) and we think (as we live miserably everyday) that that's the life for us.  Sad, sad, sad.   If you don't know happiness, it is impossible for you to share it with someone else.  That's how you know if you have it or now.  If you do, great...if not, chances are you're living in the shadows of somebody's life...that same somebody is NOT going to be around when you stand before the YOU KNOW WHO.   Go and find your joy.   Jesus did!   There were many people (relatives, friends, pharisees, society) that wanted or perhaps thought that he should live a certain way...Jesus frustrated some people that way.  He was free and happy.  People follow someone when they see he's free and happy, because they want to be free and happy as well.  Genuine joy can't be neglected.   It was exciting and purposeful around Jesus..and where there's excitement and purpose there's joy and happiness!   Go and find your happiness!
