Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be on Spike TV tonight as he appears on
the series premiere episode of Lip Sync Battle. The show, hosted by LL
Cool J, will feature celebrities going head to head against each other as
they…well, lip sync battle each other to songs of their choice. There will
be costumes, choreography, backup dancers, and for the winner, a

championship belt of course. Tonight’s episode features the former WWE
champion taking on Jimmy Fallon, who actually came up with the original
idea and who has a similar segment on The Tonight Show which he now hosts.
The Rock will lip sync to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” and Bee Gee’s
“Stayin’ Alive.” It starts at 10PM EST.

REIGNS THOUGHT HE’D BE CHAMPION AT WRESTLEMANIA BUT… is reporting that the decision to give Rollins the WWE
title was made mid-WrestleMania week after Lesnar announced that he signed
a new WWE deal. The interesting part of the story was that those involved
in the match were not told of plan until WrestleMania was already on the
air and only a few people knew the scenario, probably to avoid any leaks.
The plan going into the show for Lesnar and Reigns was that Reigns was
going to win the title and Rollins wasn’t aware that he was about to get
the biggest moment of his career by the time the pay-per-view goes off the
air. As noted at the Hall of Fame, a ton of members of the Anoa’i family
were in attendance to witness one of their own winning the WWE World
Heavyweight title, something which eventually didn’t pan out. This also
maybe explains why Rollins told Reigns, “Thank you so much,” when covering
him for the final pinfall.


Paige has landed her first WWE Studios movie along with a WWE Studios
veteran, The Miz! The duo will star in the holiday comedy Santa’s Little
Helper which will be released in time for the holidays later this year.
The synopsis of the movie reads, “After getting fired from his job, a
slick, fast-talking businessman (Dax) is given an opportunity of a
lifetime to become Santa Claus’ second-in-command. However, getting the
job won’t be that easy: Dax must go head-to-head against an elf that feels
she’s more deserving of the title. As the competition heats up, Dax learns
the true meaning of Christmas… but ultimately who will become "Santa’s
Little Helper?” Paige said she was excited to get her first gig in a movie
while The Miz said he’s just the “gift that keeps on giving!”


Ronda Rousey’s agent Brad Slater told Ariel Helwani on UFC Tonight that
the UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion has no other dates with WWE planned,
at least for now. Slater said with certainty that for this year there is
nothing planned and there is no guarantee of anything beyond what happened
at WrestleMania 31 with The Rock, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon.

Anything involving Rousey, who is under a UFC contract, has to be signed
off by UFC President Dana White and White might not be so keen about
having his star fighter wrestle for the competition. A few days ago,
Rousey wrote on Twitter that her and the WWE Universe are “just getting


E! announced that Total Divas is returning for a fourth season following
a very successful season three. The press release announced that The Bella
Twins, Natalya, Naomi, Alicia Fox, Paige, and Eva Marie as the cast which
means Cameron and Rosa Mendes are out of the cast and Naomi returns after
she was left out of the second half of season three. The cast has not been
confirmed by WWE so their omission might simply be a mistake. Total Divas
is produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions. Jonathan Murray, Gil
Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins and Russell Jay are Executive Producers for
Bunim/Murray Productions. Kevin Dunn is Executive Producer for WWE. The
show returns in Summer 2015, with the last date announced being July 7.

Canadian Coast Guard off Tofino

Absolutely fantastic pictures. Make sure you maximize your screen to get the full effect.
Dave Ashurst took them a few weeks ago at Cox Bay near Tofino, B.C.. He had a tripod and a telephoto, and was in the right place at the right time for this coast guard lifeboat to hit some crazy swell.
Good thing those boats can roll! Not sure about those guys on the top deck, though.

(Note the flag is facing toward the bow.  It would appear these are what are called standing waves formed by a strong opposing wind)

Is Your Body walking ?

Is Your Body walking?

Embrace Change

Embrace Change
When you are aware and accept that everything around you is constantly changing, and that you have no control over 99.99% of it, you are able to embrace change like a close friend! Change is a like a river, constantly flowing and moving things around. The river of life is constantly bringing you ideas, people, situations - each one is an opportunity to be enriched or to enrich others, and to learn. Change is the play of the universe as it entertains us in the biggest light and sound show of all time. Why not sit back and enjoy the show?
Sense Organs
We are usually controlled by our sense organs. For example, whatever our eyes see, we are distracted with that. Thoughts continue to wander in that particular direction and we have no control over them. At that time even if we do try to control, we find it very difficult. The stimulus the sense organs get is not in our hands, but how we choose to respond definitely is. So we need to give the training so that we see only positivity in everything, i.e., we also have the power to transform even negativity into positivity. Then at the right time, this training will help us keep our sense organs under control.
Overcoming Frustration In Relationships
There are two things in life that we can never change:

* the past and

* other people 

This often brings us one frustration after the other, especially when we do not get the results that we want. Frustration is also a sign of failure, and every time that you fail in getting what you want from the other, your self-esteem and self-confidence are reduced.

Frustration is a form of anger. You allow the negative emotion to control you, and therefore you lose control. Most times situations will not be as you want them to be and neither will people behave as you want them to. Therefore, you can decide now if you want to continue allowing the other to dictate your reactions according to how they behave, which results in the loss of your rule, control and personal power, or you can decide that no matter how the other behaves, you rule over your responses; you decide what you want to think and feel.

When another tries to control you and then gets frustrated because you don't do what he or she wants or you aren't who he or she expects you to be, they get in a bad mood with you; they look at you with anger and what do you do? You then place an invisible barrier between you and him or her. In such a way that they cannot 'enter' into your world and you do not leave yours either, they lose their influence over you. In the same way, when you try to control people you lose your influence over them and distance is generated.
Soul Sustenance
Creating a Positive Atmosphere

To create a positive atmosphere at home or at office, while interacting with your family members or colleagues, emerge positive energizing thoughts in your mind like * I am a peaceful soul, child of the Supreme Soul, the ocean of peace, * I am a loveful soul, * I am a blissful soul, * I am a powerful soul, etc. These positive thoughts spread in your home and office in the form of positive vibrations and have a positive influence on your family members and colleagues also. As a result you can maintain your peaceful, positive state even amidst actions and interactions with them. When you are clearly established in this stage of self-respect (positive consciousness), they will be more co-operative in your work and will have greater respect for you. Obstacles from your surroundings will not affect you. 

Message for the day
True spirituality is that which makes one practical. 
Expression: Usually spirituality is perceived as something that has to be kept separate from the normal daily life. But true spiritual life is that which is very practical. The one who is able to fill himself with spiritual power is able to use this power for being better and better in his practical life.

Experience: When I am able to recognize the inner beauty and am able to give myself time to be in touch with this spiritual aspect, I am able to be powerful and beyond chaos in all situations. I am able to go within to find the immense power and use it in practical situations. So I find myself being successful in practical situations
