The Simple Life Part 1Of 2

   We are but simple creatures grazing on the green fields of life. Our wants are simple; our desires not out of the ordinary. Grazing in the leas is wonderful, it is serene, a calm that permeates our very being, we are happy and content creatures ambling along enjoying the simple life for all has been provided for us, there are no challenges, problems are non-existent, illness is completely unheard of and our idyllic life lasts forever, peace and harmony exists between all the creatures it is as beautiful as The Elysian Fields.  Such joy and happiness fills our hearts and minds as we meander our way from one meadow to another in a slow steady pace enjoying the view and our companions along the way.  Nice dream isn’t it?

We live in a world where wants and desires can or may vary according to the day of week, the leas are not always green and fertile, if we are content our ambition to live life may be waning, challenges and problems are present, peace and harmony between and within us may be achieved and The Elysian Fields appear in our dreams.  It seems the joy and happiness that should be in our heart dissipates with each sorrow we encounter. Life, what an experience.  So how do we go about cleaning it up and making it better?  Well, it is an individual “thing,” no one can motivate us to get up off our mental duff and go forth to prosper or anything else.  We can be inspired, self-motivated, to move forward by others, by their stories, or by realizing what we have to give to the world…us.  How odd we would think “us” is the most important thing we have to give to the world, yet, it is the most important thing we can give to the world and be a beacon of inspiration to others, and as we do, we go forth to prosper ourselves and the world around us. 

Life is truly simple and uncomplicated but we tend to mix it up and make it difficult. In fact, life is so simple that if anyone told us how simple it was we might just laugh in their face. 

As stated in Monday’s post, Afraid Of Being Different?, this is part of the change taking place in the presentation of positive constructive attitudes.  What does this mean?  It is the difference in the presentation on success.  It will include, at times, the spiritual aspect of living and succeeding in life.  There will a bit of humor, satirical as it may be, and some asides that are a bit unusual which are meant to bring a smile or a moan and an ugh, while reading an article.

Now to continue…Part 2 tomorrow.

The Simple Life Part 2 Of 2 

 

As I Thinketh

      When things get a bit out of whack in my thinking and I am in a bit of a quandary the phrase, “As a man thinketh, ” flashes in my mind.   I am then reminded the erratic winds of fate and fear do not control the situation, I do through my thoughts, beliefs and concepts.

I ask myself, “Who rules?  The outer or the inner?”  Without question it is always the inner.  If I opt to give power to the outer to control me,  for some reason or another, I will suffer the consequences from giving my power away.  Having done this in the past, more times than I care to remember, it was a long and hard road to travel with wailing and gnashing of teeth.  Important to remember; listen to that still small voice within for guidance!

There are times we temporarily let fear come in and wreak havoc.  Not a good feeling.  When we acknowledge the fear, stare it in the face and send it packing we take back our power.  Had this happen recently.  Once I realized what I was allowing to control my thoughts, I confronted the fear and sent it packing from my mind and life.  Afterward I did some meditation work to get back on track.   The inner is always stronger than the outer.

As we come to understand our inner power, accept, and acknowledge that our words, thoughts and beliefs when backed with emotion and enthusiasm come to pass; we can change the situation and move forward with a joyous heart and calm mind to our success in life.   

Moving forward is about recognition of self.  It is about self-empowerment.

As Ernest Holmes so aptly stated, “Our every thought creates.”
