Knowing that he ended up dying from a vice that he indulged too much in after going so long without it. But at the same time, it gives hope that we can all find our own happiness, and be self-aware enough to know when something truly makes us happy.

I was raised in a really strict household in terms of health. We were never allowed to have candy, chips, or soda. I should be more regulated about my exercise, but thankfully I’ve had really good dietary habits. I’ll have a cheeseburger, but I don’t indulge in junk food ever. My favorite forms of exercise are Pilates, swimming, and walking.

*You have a choice today between Pilates, yoga, or swimming. No chips, candy, or soda!

Max Heindel suffered constantly on account of injuries received while a young boy. A number of unsuccessful operations, which had removed some of the veins and arteries of his left leg, greatly interfered with the circulation in the body. He later developed valvular heart trouble. However, he was blessed with an indomitable will and great energy, and would never permit physical disability to interfere with his work for humanity. He had a message to give to the soul sick world and nothing must interfere.

*Don’t let anything interfere with your work for humanity. Make sure that this soul sick world hears your message today.

The power of love is stronger than the power of hatred

The phrase “kill them with kindness” applies here. We can’t possibly win over everyone, but Harry Potter showed us that we can triumph in our relationships with loved ones. Even with Voldemort’s constant death threats, Harry Potter always had a support system of family and friends to help him along the way. And in the end, that made all the difference.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
