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.

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is by Florence S. Shinn.

“Man receives only that which he gives…Man’s thoughts, deeds, and words, return to him sooner or later, with astonishing accuracy.”

Powerful Thoughts, Powerful Words-Part 1 of 2

   The basis of positive and effective thinking concerns our ability to understand the active power within us, although it may appear to be latent, of our feeling nature, deeply held beliefs, thoughts and words, which create our life experiences. 

In an ancient text, The Kybalion, we read, “as above, so below, as below, so above.”   We may also state, As Within, So Without.  In Isaiah, I paraphrase, “So shall my word go forth to accomplish that for which I have sent and shall not return unto me void.”   In the New Testament we read, “It is done unto us as we believe.”  The spiritual aspect has always been addressed by those who have taught and wrote on the subject matter of positive thinking. We have direct information about how powerful we are to bring forth the life we choose.  From ancient texts and teachings we are told that life is lived from within, out.  That our thoughts, beliefs, concepts, words have more power than we realize.  We are not created to be in bondage to lack and limitation but to realize a life of abundance, well-being.  It is time to take action and stop allowing ourselves to wallow in the well of despair and drink the bitter waters of our own creation.  We are created and worthy to be rich, prosperous, abundant, healthy, and happy, love and be loved, and all the good life has to offer. We are created to express life in a bountiful manner.    

Well, how about Karma?  We have the power and ability to change our karma. We are not stuck with karma…karma is a learning experience and just like history, if we don’t learn from it we are destined to repeat it.  So if we are constantly experiencing the same effects in our life that we are not thrilled with, time to change the cause; our thoughts and beliefs concerning the situation and to be vigilant about the words we speak and our self-talk concerning said situation(s). 

As we know, our life experiences reflect back to us our core beliefs about ourselves, life, people, events, situations and the world around us.  We call this by different names: The Law of Cause and Effect, The Law of Attraction, The Law of Reflection, Mental Equivalents, Magnetic Thought, Mirroring, etc. Call it what you want. Life will always become that which we believe it to be, no more and no less.  “Nothing escapes the Principle of Cause and Effect, and one may use the laws of the higher to overcome the laws of the lower.”—The Kybalion

If we are holding onto guilt about a situation time to forgive ourselves, those involved and the situation itself.  Holding on to guilt/anger/upset wears us down and keeps us from achieving our goals of living a fuller, healthier, positive and creative life of well-being. We are not going to forgive; we are letting the power of the Spirit of Life (God) do the forgiving. In letting go of guilt/anger/upset there is a simple and positive statement you can use. “I now bless, release and forgive myself with the Unconditional Love and Forgiveness of God and I bless, release and forgive (person or persons, places, situations) with the Unconditional Love and Forgiveness of God.”  This is a short note for your reference and will be addressed more in-depth at a later time. 

This is the end of Part 1, Part 2 follows tomorrow. Jay
