What do you think would happen if a larger number of people in this world found and followed their Life Purpose?

One Person’s Faith, Hope, And Love Started A Movement—Overnight!

Apr 29, 2021 by James A. Cusumano

History has shown us many times that a single act by one person when taken with the spirit of courage, hope, and love, can attract numerous supporters who desire to be a part of that dream. This is the story of Penelope Laingen, who, by a simple act, unwittingly started a powerful movement that happened nearly instantly.

Cosmic Law #5

The Meaning of Life is to find that special gift or gifts you came into this world with—everyone has at least one—and the Purpose of Life is to find a Need in the world and share your gifts with others and make the world a better place.

In the second edition of my book on Cosmic Consciousness, I discussed in some detail that your physical body undergoes rapid and extensive physical change. The April issue of Scientific American puts some additional quantification on this point.

Abracadabra I’m Human!

Abracadabra I’m Human!

Have you ever heard of “The Hard Problem?” It’s considered the most difficult problem ever conceived by philosophers and scientists. It was stated and, to my mind, solved several thousand years ago by Wisdom Seekers of the East. However, many of today’s scientists and philosophers don’t agree with the solution—I’m not one of them. It’s an important problem because it says a lot about who you really are. I’ll describe it in modern-day terms.

The Power of Gratitude

The Power of Gratitude
Dec 08, 2020 by James A. Cusumano

Some years ago, Deepak Chopra, introduced me to some thoughts that are guaranteed to pick you up and out of the doldrums—especially helpful now during the challenges of this pandemic. Deepak discusses these ideas in his 21-Day Meditation program on abundance. If you haven’t tried it, I recommend you do. It’s based on a concept I’ve discussed in my book, “Life Is Beautiful: 12 Universal Rules”—It’s impossible not to feel happy and fulfilled when experiencing a sense of gratitude. The more intense your gratitude, the more intense your positive feelings.

Purpose & Passion—With A Twist!

Purpose & Passion—With A Twist!
Nov 17, 2020 by James A. Cusumano

As someone who has experienced Life Purpose and Passion as a path to Happiness and Fulfillment, and observed it in the lives of others,, I’m always intrigued to see it unfold throughout the world—sometimes even “with a twist!” You may have read that two companies—Moderna in Cambridge, Massachusetts and BioNTech in Mainz, Germany—recently announced success in developing a vaccine against Covid-19 which is more than 90 percent effective. This has been incredible progress, although there is still quite some distance to go for massive production and distribution of these vaccines, globally. However, if that process goes as smoothly as the research, it may be here faster than we think.

Immortality

Immortality
Nov 05, 2020 by James A. Cusumano

In Greek mythology, three goddesses called the Fates determined at birth the length of time each person would spend on Earth. Life span was said to be directly proportional to the length of a thread spun by the Fates for each person born. As you’ll see below, advances in genetics suggest this mythological tale may be a good metaphor for the mechanism for longevity.

Famous American folk author, Mark Twain, was once sitting on the edge of the Mississippi River, fishing with his teenage nephew, Joshua. They often talked about life during their fishing outings. At one point, Twain turned to his nephew and said, “Josh, do you know what the two most important days in your life are?” Josh thought for awhile and said, “Well, I guess the first one has to be when you’re born.” “Excellent!” was Twain’s response. “What about the second one?”Josh thought again and said, “Gosh, Uncle Mark, I’m not sure. Maybe when you die?”

My wife, Inez, recently purchased and is reading an interesting book. Actually, I would say it’s much more than interesting. Entitled, “The Poetry Pharmacy,” it was written by William Sieghart, and published in 2019 by Penguin Random House. It’s a beautiful collection of famous poems, embraced and loved by the author, individually selected by him to provide hope, comfort, and inspiration for all of life’s most difficult moments.

10 Habits of Happy People

10 Habits of Happy People
Oct 15, 2020 by James A. Cusumano
Most people find that happiness is a byproduct, and it’s rarely achieved as a direct goal. It’s always a consequence of the success of specific tangible goals that bring benefits to them and to the world around them. Although genetic predisposition passed on by your parents has much to do with your innate happiness “set point,” the larger contribution comes from a combination of your environment and what you do with your life, both of which are well within your control.

Paulo Coelho’s beautiful fable, The Alchemist, first published in English in 1993, provides valuable messages on The Meaning of Life and finding your Life Purpose.

Below, I share some of these insights, followed by comments for your consideration. You might contemplate these messages to see if they resonate with your heart and soul—with your life.
