Today’s Positive Thought

 

Reach For The StarsToday’s Positive Thought is by Jay.

Yesterday is non-existent, so let it go and all that came with it. 

Tomorrow is yet to be, it is in the future so don’t worry about it.

Today is here and now.  Use the day, this present moment, to create your day and a better tomorrow. 

The life we live is a creation from thoughts, beliefs, and concepts we embrace. Let go those old  thoughts, beliefs and concepts that are no longer benefiting our life and embrace new and more beneficial/prosperous/successful ones.

Time for all of us to give up the “rut” and move onto the highway of life to our successes right now. 

 

FYI On Change

pca logoThis FYI On Change article is in answer to a question I was asked over the weekend, “What does it take to begin to change your life?”

It was a rather long conversation so the following is a shortened version.

“What does it take to change your life?”  This question came out of the blue and was totally unexpected.

First and foremost we need to choose, make a decision, as to what area of our life we want to change.  Is it in the arena of money, work,  or relationships – personal and/or professional?

Next we need to ask ourself, “Am I willing to give up/change those beliefs, concepts, and thoughts, I currently  hold to that are keeping me where I am in life?  “Am I willing to see myself in a new light of understanding that I am capable of change and need not be stuck where I am?”   If so, what are your goals; short, medium and long-range?  Can you see yourself at the attainment of said goals, enjoying the fruits of your labor and not canceling them with negative thoughts and comments?  Are you willing to change, to enjoy a better life and lifestyle of well-being, success, and prosperity? “Are you willing to pursue new avenues of education, seminars or other ways of improving your life? 

To change our life requires persistence, changing our perceptions of ourself, life, and our life experiences.  It is about coming to the realization that, “I am capable and worthy of the highest and best that life has to offer.”  This is the first step in changing our life and will always be the first step no matter how successful and prosperous we become.  Life always honors us by reflecting back to us what we believe to be true and this causation is seen and experienced by us, which is the effect. 

By changing the way we perceive and believe about a situation the situation changes accordingly, life is always lived from within.   Change begins within our mind with the upgrading of our thoughts and beliefs.  The results will be seen in our life according to the degree/depth we believe about ourself and said situation.  By changing our thoughts we can change our life.  Not always the easiest to begin and give those old comfortable thoughts and beliefs the boot, which have limited us but when we begin and persist, we win in the end, and life becomes to us that which we have worked toward. 

Life is for us, so why are we against us? 

Remember, you are here to experience life  and all it has to offer to further your well-being, success and prosperity. 

Smile, the Infinite is showering you with new possibilities, reach up and grab one, you deserve greater good in your life, here and now.

Thank You & 12/21/12

Rainbow Sun

I want to take this time to thank all of you who follow, bookmark, and share this blog with others, it is so very much appreciated.  Jay

Today marks the end of the Mayan Calendar, 12/21/12, and a new era of transformation begins, so it is believed.   I believe that every moment of every day is a oppportunity for our personal transformation from those thoughts, beliefs and concepts that bind us to fear, lack and limitation to those which free us from those bonds to live a truly abundant and prosperous life filled with all the good we can believe and accept into our lives.  We are the power unto ourselves, we are the only ones who can take action on our life situations and change them for the better. 

Let today be the day that you say to yourself, “Enough Is Enough,” and initiate the change you desire for  better living and well-being.

Since I am far from being politically correct, Merry Christmas!  May the New Year be one filled with Health, Joy, Prosperity and Wonderful new creative experiences that carry you forward to greater abundance in all areas of your life.   

Life is wonderful and so are you!!

Mystery

Mystery is it foreboding or is it a challenge?  Some make it their life’s work to solve a mystery others see it as something to be left alone.  What mysteries do each of us desire to solve and how many of us just leave them alone, wishing and hoping they will disappear.

Mystery surrounds our very living…the mystery of life.  How does our mind work, the brain is the physical vehicle that the mind operates through. Our mind is invisible, it is part of the unseen things in this world, let us call it a world of mystery where there are more things than meets the eye.  

The mystery we all may be looking to solve is, “How do I…?”  We can fill in with the words, “get ahead,” “get more money,” or “get a better job.”  

Some believe that we live in a world of illusion.  Some believe that we create the world around us both individually and collectively.  Some believe that the world in which they live is out of their control.  Some just don’t give a hoot and move through life like a robot on automatic unaware of anything around them, nor do they care to know.

Life is a simple mystery, it is about living.  But what do we see as living? Are we allowing ourselves to be influenced by the outside so that our inner beliefs coincide with the outer or allowing the inner to influence the outer to coincide with the inner thoughts and beliefs?  I believe both.  We are spiritual beings being human, as many I know like to say.  We are a power unto ourselves and the life we live is the life we choose inwardly according to our thoughts, beliefs and concepts about self, our self-worth for instance, and the world around us.  Some chalk up life to karma, reincarnation, and don’t believe they can change it, well, if you don’t change you will be repeating the pattern and stay stuck, something I don’t think any of us truly desire.  The mystery of life is to live it, from the inner to the outer, the Law of Cause and Effect in action.  Life can only be to us what we believe and accept it to be, no more and no less.  Geez, do I have to clean up my act!  How about you? 

Well, now that we know something about the mystery of life what are you and I willing to do to alter the course we are currently following?  The choice is ours. Life is about living and living it well. 

You are and always have been worthy of the highest and best, accept it, let it be a core belief, thought and concept to lead you forward into new beginnings and a new fruitful life experience.

Your Infinite Power

   Your Infinite Power to be rich, wealthy, healthy, joyous, happy, prosperous, successful and more is ready and waiting for your recognition of it to bring to you your dreams and desires, transforming them from the vapors of thought and belief, into material form. 

 You are the power and you have the talent and ability to bring forth that which is your desire for better living and more successful living.

Life is what you and I make it.  It is up to each of us to take action in our mind, with our thoughts beliefs, concepts, and determination coupled with enthusiasm, feeling, for objectification of those invisible things into our life. 

 We are only as limited as we believe ourselves to be. 

We are only as limited as we affirm we are, either aloud, in conversation, or with our self-talk. 

The time is now to eradicate limited, constricting, life draining, thought patterns and begin to design new patterns of thought, belief and conceptualization of greater good for ourselves and in our world.  Now is the time to re-energize, to re-invigorate, and re-invent ourselves and our lives for the better.

Expansion is the order of the day and the time is now to do something about it…step by step, little by little, leap by leap, bound by bound.  Action in thought and deed is a necessity if we desire to move from where we are to where we want to be in life.

No-thing is impossible.  All is available to us if we but accept it and open to it entering our lives in the here and now.  We may not see it immediately but we will see it appearing our lives in various forms and at various times.  We must have the belief it is done now and not question or wonder how or when, just a deep abiding belief it is done now.  No longer is it faith in, but the faith of.

It is up to us to make the change, to have the courage to stand up for ourselves to ourselves and begin a new and wonderful adventure and journey into greater well being, prosperity and success, into wealth and all it has to offer us and to share with the world around us. 

We are meant for greatness and are worthy of all the best life has to offer…time to claim it.

Today stake your claim to successful living and begin a new adventure into thinking, believing, conceptualizing, and enjoy the journey.

YOU ARE THE POWER!

“What if”?

   I sit here this morning at the dining room table wondering “what if” about a variety of subjects and how it would be “if”; but I dwell in the abstractions of life and see things perhaps in a different light than most, as has been apparent all my life in the fields I am part of: writing, acting, public speaking, the ministry (retired for the most part), baking, cooking, the arts in general. 

The creativity we seek for moving forward to better living is an abstract, it is a cause that evolves in our mind as an idea to take action on and if we choose to follow that inspiration so be it. 

Much of the way we seem to be living is by allowing the outside events to control and influence us to the point of upset, dismay, discontent and the like.   

Life is always lived from within out.  The outer life is a reflection of our inner convictions, beliefs, and concepts.  Do unexpected things happen in our life, of course they do, we are part of this world and the unexpected does pop up, but is it really unexpected or is it a fear or thought that has been planted from years ago that is now coming into our life? Is it because we are part of other peoples lives who are experiencing life at their level of belief and causes us heartache or upset due to the love or caring we have for them?  Is it because we need to learn something from this experience which will not only help us but others?  Is it something about fear, say of moving forward or of grasping a new idea to lead us onward and upward, or, could it be the manifestation of our dissatisfaction with our job or our life in general that is causing us angst as a physical condition?  “What if” it is?

“What if” you and I decided to take action, beginning in our mind-abstract thought-causation (all thought is abstract), to change/alter our response to a situation? What if” we did?  Would we benefit from it?  Yes.  What would we learn from this new perspective?  Perhaps it would be learning how to handle this type of situation without giving it power to upset us, maybe it would be a gaining a greater understanding of not only the situation and those involved but of ourselves as well.  “What if” our thoughts are truly “things” in the invisible world of causation that when impressed on the receptive substance of the Universe takes form in our life according to that specific thought?  Just, “what if?”

“What if” I or someone else told you, you have more power over your life than you currently think or believe and you actually believed it?  What would you do to change the course of your life to make it better?  What thoughts would you change permanently, or would you even be willing to give them up because you are more comfortable in the predictable outcomes.  We have all been there.  We are at times more comfortable with the uncomfortable and the predictable because it is known and the unknown can scare the Hades out of us.  Been there and it is not fun, as you no doubt well know.  “What if” we changed?

“What if” I told you that positive thinking is merely a beginning step to self-realization where in the understanding of the abstract brings forth the concrete, material, form of that knowing?  “What if” you and I started today to take charge of our thinking, our beliefs and concepts concerning ourselves and our world of experience?  “What if” it brought us the success we wanted in all areas of our life?

“What if”?

Powerful Thoughts, Powerful Words-Part 2 of 2

   The following is an example of the power in our words. While I was out having a cup of coffee, a person was lamenting about everything in their life, talked about trying to get other people to change, to suit their belief, because they believe they are right about everything, had to know all that went on in everybody’s life and comment on it, etc. They could not understand why others don’t like them, imagine that…hmmm.  Plus they were recruiting someone for a multilevel company and really didn’t convey the purpose, intent or anything else about said company.  You may be wondering how I know this. Well, they were speaking so loud I could not help but hear them no matter where I moved in the shop.  This person is truly using their power in a not so positive way to continue the experiences they have been lamenting about for the past 45 minutes.  Talk about negative reinforcement.  The point is: the more someone focuses on the negatives, the more intense they will become, “and even that which they have shall be taken away.”

None of us can really afford to let our negative concepts, prejudices, and the like to continue to hold us back from a better life; a life filled with prosperity, wealth, money, success, health and well-being.  Negativity puts a stranglehold on us and our ability to be happy with our life and in creating a new and better life for ourselves; which directly and indirectly affects those around us and restricts the good we can give back to world. It will also effect/affect our job/career.  This is not the thought atmosphere, aura, to project to the world if we want to achieve to greater heights in living our life. 

To change our thinking, our beliefs and concepts will take us time as we implement the new and eradicate the old which has hampered our well-being and achieving a better life.

The more we loose the old the more we start to live the life we desire.

Our words and thoughts have power and when we put feeling into them they manifest much faster.  Conceiving the Idea (Desire/Dream); Believing in the Desire/Dream – a the key to making it come true; Achieving the Dream – making it a  reality in our life gives us a most wonderful and fantastic feeling, allowing us to see the invisible thought and word take form in the visible.  Wow!

We were not created to be a lump on a log and watch the parade of life pass us by while we bemoan our state of affairs.  It is nice once in awhile and perhaps necessary to watch the parade from the sidelines for a short period of time…but, we need to jump up, bang our own drum and join in the celebration before things get out of hand and leave us in a more dire state.  Remember when Dolly sings, Before The Parade Passes By, from the musical Hello Dolly, “Before the parade passes by I’m going to put some life back into my life.”  It is time to put some more life back into our life and let that ethereal dream appear in visible form to be a highlight in our living experience.  Life can be a dream but not taking action leaves that dream castle up in the air and us in swampland.  Dream the dream you desire and follow it to fruition, don’t get derailed, stay the course and get creative in achieving the end result.  Enjoin the power of thought and spoken word to set the course for actualizing the dream into form.
