Phenomenal Life Strategies

"I AM that I AM."
Almighty God )

Ask Seek Knock


Fascinating people boldly transforming their lives before us. Discussion for your group:

What is your guiding principle?

Dreamers Hill

Everything Beautiful


 . . . the fruit of the Spirit is
and self-control.
There is no law (Jewish Law) against such things.


Dreamers Hill

. . .

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. 

For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, it will be opened.

What man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a snake? 

If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

 Therefore, everything you would like men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Being Fit

. . . .

Not that I have already attained or have already been perfected, but I follow after it so that I may lay hold of that for which I was seized by Christ Jesus. 

I do not count myself to have attained, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 

I press toward the goal to the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

_ Paul


living water


I am made in the image of God, not your image of God.


If You're Not Perfect You're Ready

The understanding for each and everyone of us is that as people of faith, as people of God, we know that we are not perfect.

We know that there are things in our lives that have prevented us from fully embracing this Everlasting Love of God.

We know that people will often point out our flaws to us. We don't need to go too far before someone will tell us just how bad we are in order to reassure ourselves of how unworthy we might believe we are.

But the truth of the matter is, is that in this new realm of God, in this understanding of God, in fact if we look at the characters of our biblical heritage we know that the people that God chose were not always those who had everything together, not always those who had everything sewn up in a nice neat package, not everybody who had everything put in a way that they would be able to present themselves perfect and holy before God.

Be transformed by the renewing of your MIND, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


“His voice rose under the black smoke before the burning wreckage of the island; and infected by that emotion, the other little boys began to shake and sob too. And in the middle of them, with filthy body, matted hair, and unwiped nose, Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.” ― William Golding, Lord of the Flies. Heart.

Welcome to phenomenal life-thriving strategies delivered from the lean side of the mountain and embraced by many on this wondrous journey of life and learning - the continuation of our Extraordinary Adventure series.


All we have to decide
is what to do with the time that is given us.

Awesome. SCARY.


"How do we cultivate young people who have the idealism, and the ambition, and the drive, and the passion to start their own journey to bring about meaningful and positive social change?"

You are altogether beautiful, my love;
    there is no flaw in you.

King Solomon

At the heart of our best INTENTION and ACTIONS is LOVE (3 dimensions)
The 'force' - exercising our rising potential - is LOVE (its 4th dimension)

"I am the door. If anyone enters through Me, that one will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.   The thief does not come, except to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." Jesus, Son of Man, Prince of Glory, Redeemer.

tour de force


Who made the mountains? Who made the trees? Who made the rivers flow to the sea? Who sends the rain when the earth is dry? Who made the flowers to bloom in the spring? Who made the song for the robins to sing? Who hung the moon in the starry sky? Yes, all that and way much more! Our mind. Our body. Our spirit. Our soul.

Never let anyone put limits on what you can do! Don't allow it!


Come, let us all be friends for once, 
Let us make life easy on us, 
Let us be lovers and loved ones,
The earth shall be left to no one.

Yunus Emre


"It is not our experience that makes our lives, it is what we do with it."

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true 
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

You raise me up to more than I can be.



Phenomenal Life Strategies

Life Strategy # 12: "Do as You would have Done to You"

Phenomenal life-affirming, life-thriving, life-uplifting strategies are being delivered by Our Lord Jesus on the lean side of the mountain. It's a new life.

Action Plan: Be deliberate with your actions. Every move, however easy or hard, spontaneous or contemplated, initiated or responsive, is that much more palatable and productive when executed in accordance with one's guiding principle than when it is not. May our actions be at one with our will and at peace with our soul. Jesus gets personal with me again, whispering gems, detailing the penetrable nature of a guiding principle, as if it were a needle bearing a tailor's thread through fine fabric. (What about you?) Have you a guiding principle that serves you well? Is it compatible with your values, beliefs, drives and intentions? How, where and when does this guiding principle inform your actions?

Rejoice! Be Glad!
We are accompanied.
Many have gone before us.

Welcome to my 'inter-personal' share!

A Sparkling Sprinkle of Creations

Read Critically
Speak Clearly
Write Consciously
Live Your Truth

One of the many beautifying effects of shared experiences and sharing experiences - asking, seeking, knocking - beyond being informed or motivated or empowered, is the way these redesign one's thinking and reshape one's growth patterns, I have found. Can you relate to this? What have you found?

I am wondering if without a guiding principle ready responsiveness to shared and sharing experiences would leave one vulnerable, whereas with a guiding principle these experiences would prove invaluable, while an absence of shared and sharing experiences would render one increasingly more brittle. What do you think? Share.

For a few years now I have placed those four opening directives - "Read critically. Speak clearly. Write consciously. Live your truth." - in places where they can catch my eye, seep into my soul, and stay on my mind. One of those places is above this desk in this most used of my writing spaces.

I remember how corny it felt the first time I scribbled something and stuck it on my bedroom wall, and said to myself, "Remember that!" So corny. So unoriginal. So worth it.

But in this new space of mine, which is far from being new anymore, the first scribble that got tacked into view was this gem below. The Enforcer! That's what I call it-him-her. The Enforcer!


Write something worth reading.


Do something worth reading about.


Oh, the stories I can tell about what the enforcer has done to me since. But I must back off. I am not a desk slammer. I imagine if I were, my furniture costs would skyrocket.

Yes, The Enforcer!

Over time, he has built up a re-enforcing platoon parading about my writing and recording spaces, like soldiers on strict commission.

There is the red angel perfectly positioned to tap my shoulder - and is not reticent doing so, with bayonet unsheathed!


Is there any benefit in doing what you are doing this very second?


We've had a few arguments. I don't recall winning any. I must needs work on my debating skills. Maybe the art of persuasion! Maybe my communication skills. Ooops! Just got another tap! Bye.

Since you are here, let me introduce you to the twins, Loud, and Clear! Those are their official names. I have a couple of nick-names for each of them, which are privileged secrets. However, I can say I've heard them referred to as the Bung-Navel twins. Don't ask. I won't tell.



If you were to die now, is this what you want to be doing?



Is it OK that this is the last thing you are doing on earth?


They are all scribbled across my Thinker's Wall doing their utmost to keep me in line, I think. They ought to know, full well, my line-vision gene is inoperable, intentionally, though, not wickedly, in this world of discovery. And I definitely don't respond nicely, predictably, or coweringly to threats. These reason with me. And I like that. Ask the Divine. Seek. Knock. It's worth it.

This brings me back to four directives with whom I share a sweet romance. Read critically. Speak clearly. Write consciously. Live your truth. They love me. I love them. We go to bed together. We wake up together. We seek harmony. We ride the same limousine. Well! Sort of.

And I am noticing something spectacular - I think! The Enforcer, the red-angel and The Twins are doing less and less of keeping me in line, more and more of guarding and protecting my interests. And I am impressed. I think it is the limousine. Red carpet too. Gems and chandeliers. Finger foods. Designer sweets. Could be! Well! Sort of. Neverthless, I've got to do something about this carpet. "Leonidas!" That's the name of the game-changer on my closet door post. M-hm! Nope. You'll have to guess. No cheating.

For these many years I haven't counted how many forums, posts, social media, text messages, etc., via which I have shared this presentation by Clint. It is worth another encore. Besides, I need a reminder.

So we've got a vision - our dream, our purpose, our divine plan, our value - well defined or being refined. So we've defined a strategy to make this dream a reality, to bring our vision to life, to achieve our mission, to fully actualize what we are about, to deliver this value - our contribution to the world.

So we've set ourselves challenging goals that would sustain our growth and tactical moves that should push us through, and now it seems it is time to cross the threshold, to step out into the world, and to get it all done.

We've come face to face with that inescapable reality - people! Who-ah! New people. Other people. Known people. Too well-known people. Strangers. And you are beginning to discover that all the motivation of the world ain't got nothing on skill and drive and the work - the real work - necessary. So, what is our guiding principle - that needle that facilitates us running our thread through the fabric - creating something new; mending something torn; adding buttons; securing button holes; embossing our creation with heart and soul and voice; allowing our work, our effort, our contribution, our solution, to be the sound of our voice, the echoes of our heart, the essence of a soul? How about adopting this one: do as you would have done to you!

I have seen it perform miracles. I've seen it do wonders. And I wonder - I really do - if that is a solid part of the answer. Perhaps not, but it sure is worth checking out as we continue our ride along The High Achiever's Journey. (Click to Check it out). Shout. I see gems sprinkled across Beautiful. You are awesome. Are you enjoying this 4th dimension of love: do what you love; love what you do? Do you exercise it under the guiding principle: do as you would have done to you? It changes the landscape completely. Share.

The Hunks I Dreamed by Neville DeAngelou

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. _
Robert Frost

My child, if a street sweeper you must be, sweep like only you could.
Let it be said, "Here is a sweeper that changed my world."




"I give them eternal life. They shall never perish, nor shall anyone snatch them from My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them from My Father’s hand. My Father and I are one." All things are possible. Start with what is just outside your comfort zone. Believe. Act upon it. Step outside and breathe.

ILICET - A Time To Begin Again

WORD TO THE WISE: Of what worth is being if it does nothing or seeks to destroy the worth of other beings? Do you find 'do as you would have done to you' to be a worthwhile or transforming principle?

If it is true that actions speak louder than words, would that our actions be worth every effort put into it. We are surrounded by super examples.

Throughout our journey we shared the progression of this young man who decided to do something about the mess in our oceans. I am excited to share another update.

If you believe, you'll find a way; if you don't, excuses are waiting.
