Leading LIFE Large - Appreciation, I thought, was reserved for the feeling I had when peanut butter joined jelly in a sandwich. Enjoyable, yes, but not true appreciation. Appreciation, or gratitude, is much grander than how I feel about lunch. It's a way of responding to what life brings to us, expected or otherwise. If we live day to day in anything other than true appreciation, we are living a life of pain and "quiet desperation" (Thoreau). Tune in!

Beverly Nadler poses the question - "Do Your Beliefs And Thoughts Really Determine Your Life"?
“When you believe it, you’ll see it. “ “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” “Your thoughts create your life.”
We’ve all heard these statements and similar ones. Every personal growth, spiritual and motivational teaching tells us this. Self-Help is a multi-billion dollar industry. Yet, in spite of the fact that millions of people spend billions of dollars on books, CDs, DVDs, trainings, seminars, workshops, and therapies in an effort to improve their lives, far too many people do not have the results they seek. Why is this so?
Join us for a stimulating discussion on the mind (conscious, subconscious and Superconscious) and the brain, including fascinating scientific research.
A recent newspaper headline paints a bleak picture for college graduates and those entering the job market. Today so many young adults face a world of greater uncertainty and unpredictability. The questions that dominate their minds are: Will there be a job for me? Will it be the right job; one that will bring me the self-respect, satisfaction and sense of accomplishment I want to have?
It appears to be harder and harder to find the job that will bring the self-respect and happiness we want from our work, as well as meet the income demands for the lifestyle we have chosen to live. So many young adults are out of work, and those who have been fortunate to find work, are very often working beneath their level of education and expertise just to have a job. A quote I often use is by Thoreau, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and live the life you imagine.” One of the best ways to restore and rekindle ones dreams is to determine with confidence, what is the path where you truly want to be brilliant, and have the capability to be brilliant in what you do.
If you are interested in going Confidently in the Direction of your Dreams and Living the Life you Imagine, this Brilliance Radio Program episode is for you.
Join us as we continue our literary journey with American author, poet, essayist, historian, and philosopher Henry David Thoreau. He is best known for his book Walden; a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay; Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state.

Civil Disobedience is an essay by Henry David Thoreau. Published in 1849 under the title Resistance to Civil Government, it expressed Thoreau’s belief that people should not allow governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that people have a duty both to avoid doing injustice directly and to avoid allowing their acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Thoreau was motivated in part by his di
It is very difficult to be loving and kind when you feel that you are under attack. If paying bills has turned your smile upside down, made you feel like a cog in the wheel, has you being short with strangers and/or selling out your beliefs just to stay in your home, then there is something terribly wrong. And there is a way to make it right.
"There is a right way; but we are very liable from heedlessness and stupidity to take the wrong one... and sometimes, no doubt, we find it difficult to choose our direction, because it does not yet exist distinctly in our idea." Henry David Thoreau

“The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.” … Henry David Thoreau. I brush my teeth, not because I have disciplined myself to. I don't do it out of the fear of losing them. I do so because I love my mouth and my teeth and I can experience this by taking care of them. Dale live @ 213.816.0317, chat, listen or download the archives.
