Today’s Positive Thought

Infinity   Today’s Positive Thought is by Ernest Holmes.

“Thoughts are more than things, they are the cause of things.  Things have no independent existence…Our work is done in Mind alone and our entire equipment is thought and a knowledge of the Power which it utilizes.  This Power is superior  to the intellect in Its creativeness.”

Today’s Positive Thought

Idea   Today’s Positive Thought is by Albert Einstein.

“The mind can only proceed so far upon what it knows and can prove.  There comes a time when the mind takes a leap–call it intutition or what you will–and comes out on a higher plane of knowledge.”

A Time In Life

 By: Jay

There comes a time in life when one must take that dreaded first step to new beginnings.  It begins as a bit of a nudge and grows into a full-blown kick in the shins, should we decide not to listen or understand the meaning of the nudge and the direction it is guiding us to for our greater good in life.

No worthwhile thing in life is without risk, without girding our loins to go after that which we seek..  Yes, sometimes we have to make what we want to happen by creating the means by which our success can begin to take form and lead us to bigger and greater things.  It could mean creating a new business out of our garage or spare room, creating a demo tape or writing a script, producing it and starring in it to have our talents recognized.  It can encompass Inventing a new gadget or way of re-designing an existing product to make it better, etc.

Life is about creativity, about creating something tangible from the invisible ethers of our thought.  Life is about birthing and bringing forth a dream, a desire, to express ourselves in a positive and constructive manner to benefit the world in which we live.

Moving forward necessitates us to take chances, to risk, to initiate the ways and means necessary to achieve our goals in a positive and constructive manner.  Life will always give us hints about what we need to do if we but listen to that still small voice inside us.  We are not without power, talent, creativity and ability to bring forth new ways to our success.  If Life be for us, then, we darn well should be too!  We cannot continue to live in fear of being successful or fear failing at a venture or taking a step or two back so long as we learn along the way, which translates to success.

The knowledge we gain from life, when things don’t go as planned, gives us wisdom in the way we carry on to our goal.  Knowledge and wisdom are our partners in life and allow us to find them in the most unusual and sometimes most ridiculous ways.  Never discount a chance encounter and always listen to that still small voice of intuition when it speaks to you. 

Today, engage life and your creativity to live life anew.  Today is your new beginning; embrace it and rejoice in your new and successful journey in life.

Carpe Diem, Seize The Day, my friends. 


Today’s Positive Thought

Today’s Positive Thought is by H.L. Mencken.

“We are here now.  Further than that, all human knowledge is moonshine.”

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is by William Cowper.

“Knowledge is proud that it knows so much; wisdom is humble that it knows no more.”


   I want to share with you a quote by Napoleon Hill from his book, The Magic Ladder To Success, concerning temporary defeat.   It is something we all need to keep in mind.

“Do not be afraid of temporary defeat, but make sure that you learn some lessons from every such defeat.  That which we call ‘experience’ consists, largely, of what we learn by mistakes–our own and those made by others–but take care not to ignore the knowledge that may be gained from mistakes.”

Free To Be

 The following poem/prose is by a good friend of mine, JC, and was published in 1985.  Enjoy, Free To Be.  Seems to be a problem getting this post to appear correctly, thank you for your understanding and my apologies to JC who wrote it.  

Free To Be

I’m free to be me                                                                                                                                                                                                                      For in all actuality there is no one I’d rather be.

I love me for me in all that I am.

Yes, I’m free to be anything I want to be                                                                                                                                                              Because no one or thing can put limitation on me                                                                                                                                             Just me.

In the course of my living I’ve come to see                                                                                                                                                                 That in this entire world I’m free to be me.

Free, what a wonderful to be                                                                                                                                                                                       For my spirit is guiding me                                                                                                                                                                                      Through this experience you see.  

I outpicture my life through learning and knowing                                                                                                                                            For that which I am just happens to be flowing.

I am that I am is the essence of my being                                                                                                                                                                For I generate Love with the knowledge of One Knowing.

The God in me has kept me going                                                                                                                                                                              For without Its help I wouldn’t be glowing.

I glow with Its Essence, Its Love, Its Wisdom                                                                                                                                                          For I am one with this Infinite Mind All Being. 

As I grow and grow in this beautiful Light                                                                                                                                                                   I realize It shines on me morn and night                                                                                                                                                                    It refreshes me and works with me day in and day out                                                                                                                                           I guess you could say it carries some clout. 

My choice in life isn’t easy you see                                                                                                                                                                                   For I’ve decided in that Infinite Me                                                                                                                                                                                 To flow with God because I’m Free To Be.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Thoughts From 1889

   Thoughts from 1889.  I was looking through my library for research material and came upon a book written by Henry Drummond in the 19th Century.  He was a well-known author at the time. Below are a two quotes from his book, long out of print.

“The first demand is that being conscious and having this power of choice, the mind should have an adequate knowledge of what it is to choose.”

“For all human growth, effort, and achievement, an ideal is acknowledged to be indispensible.”

Have a wonderfully successful day.  Jay
