Today’s Positive Thought

Expand Your Mind   Today’s Positive Thought is by Ernest Holmes.

“We do well to listen to this Inner Voice, for it tells us of a life wonderful in its scope; of a love beyond our fondest dreams; of a freedom which the soul craves.”

Today’s Positive Thought

Purple   Wanted to do something a bit different for Today’s Positive Thought and am quoting from a meditation written by Ernest Holmes.  This is used as an affirmation. 

“I go forth with a complete sense of mastery in the realm of form …unafraid, happy and joyous in my expression of all that is desirable and constructive; knowing that all destructive desires and inharmonious thoughts disappear and dissolve into the nothingness from which they came, having no power to perpetuate themselves, since they are neither person, place nor thing.”

“If one will sit in quiet contemplation of good, as an inner experience, he will experience the good which he contemplates.”

Today’s Positive Thought is by Paramahansa Yogananda.

“Bring into play the almighty power within you, so that on the stage of life you can fulfill your high destined role.”

Our Success

Our success is in living life.  It is in living with a positive attitude and foresight.

Our success is in being focused. In having a clear vision of our goals and where we are going.  If we need a clearer vision of our goals and where we desire to go in life, we can use either or both visualization techniques and meditation to help us center and afford us the opportunity to fine tune or set new goals.  Sometimes in our fine tuning we see, that, we are stubbornly holding on to some “thought or belief”  that is hampering our forward movement which can necessitate the replacing of the goal or merely recalibrating our thought/belief to be more in line with our ambition without being mulish about it.

Our success is in being open to new ideas, in new ways of doing things, it is about being flexible in life, thought and action/deed.  Not everything in life is black and white or blatantly obvious.  It is the varying shades in-between that color our life , that make us who we are, that gives us our character and unique successes , it colors our ambition to be all we can and to be successful in what we have chosen to do with our life.  There is no standing idly by waiting for success to suddenly appear in our life or drop into our lap as we sit in our easy chair or on the sofa while watching television. Write down or create a treasure map of where you see yourself, use positive wording, write in the present tense and make use of colorful pictures for impressing your mind.  Success is not difficult.  It is only our perception and belief of how hard we want to make it.  Success is a fun adventure; it is filled with thrills and chills, warmth and color, with passion and enthusiasm, with tears-some of sadness in the letting go and some of joy and happiness in the welcoming in.

When we know and affirm that we always meet the right people at the right time and right place, it happens.

When we believe and affirm we are always in the right place at the right time, it happens.

When we believe and affirm that the right “things” appear in our life at the right time for our benefit, they do.

Success is in knowing that so-called chance meetings bring success to both us and the others involved. 

Success is in listening and heeding our intutiion.

When we know and accept that life has been and is always for us, then,changes appear in our experiences. 

The power of our success is in the power of our thoughts and beliefs.  It is in gaining new perceptions and new concepts about living and life.  It is up to us to be open to life and all that is now and always has been ready to bestow upon us for a better and greater life of success, prosperity, health, wealth and well-being.

Our success is in being us; for all our faults and foibles. 

Grow, change, fine tune, appreciate yourself for you, for your talents and abilities, above all, for the uniquely successful character you are.

Success, and all that perks that come with it,  is knocking, open the door and welcome it into your life and affairs.

Afraid Of Being Different?

   Afraid of being different?  I know I was.  

Since childhood I did things that were different and out of the norm in the fields of creativity and self-expression.  There are many of us who have had this experience.  Being different oozes out of us no matter what we do.  Pretty sure we heard, “Different wasn’t normal”, whatever that is. Perhaps it meant being on the outside looking in or being bullied.   Both of which I experienced, still on the outside looking in but enjoying and appreciating it more than ever.

The past year has been a tough one for me and mine.   My recovery has taken longer than anticipated which has had a definite impact on all areas of life.  The one thing that has kept me going is my belief in a power greater than myself, followed by meditation-which took me two to three months to be able to do so without my head hurting from the drugs pumped into me to create a coma and fight a serious (life threatening) lung infection, pushing myself to the limit each and every day and of course positive prayer, known as scientific prayer or treatment.  So what have I learned?  Wow, things will never be the same for me, my outlook on life has had a definite change and what is important to me is now at the forefront of my life, more than ever before.  Will be pursuing a career, besides writing, which was a childhood goal.  Now that I am moving forward at a faster rate it is time for me to change the timber of this blog and in what and how it is presented.  Over the next few weeks you will see the differences emerging, slowly but surely.   I will be addressing issues in a new positive, direct way.  

There is always a turning point for us, for me it was last year.  The past two weeks have seen a change in goals and the last vestiges of not accepting being different have fallen away.  Oftentimes it takes a life changing event to induce this new perspective and goals to more fully accept being differentSo it was with me.  Perhaps we are given a second chance because the Infinite isn’t done with us yet and perhaps, just perhaps, we have something more to give and contribute to help others as well as ourselves and those in our sphere of life.     

The only constant in life and the universe is change.  There comes a time in our life we need to rebrand our creative work, to recreate ourselves, at times it is thrust upon us and we appear to be unwilling participants in the beginning.  Change gives us fodder for growth into new and exciting individuals.  Part of being different is change; it is learning to utilize our unique and diverse abilities and talents to the fullest extent for success. 

What was the turning pointing in your life?

If you would like to share your experience please leave a comment and I will post it.

Thanks,

The Simple Life Part 1 Of 2

On My Death And Living

On my death and living.  Last year I died of a full respiratory arrest.  I was revived, placed in a coma with two days to live.

Over the course of the past year plus the challenges I have had due to this incident have allowed me to grow on personal, professional and spiritual levels.

Having been on the other side and enjoying it before being pulled back into my body, it changes you in many ways.  It really wasn’t my time to die; my life here apparently has more to do and achieve.  Giving up was not an option, persistence and determination, diligence and the like were and are part of my daily routine, as is meditation.   We can’t afford to give up on ourselves no matter what comes down the pike because we are wonderful creative expressions of life  itself worthy of greater good and well-being.      

The posts/articles on the PCA blog are to convey the beauty and spectacular beings we really are and the power that resides within us and is us and that to us all is possible.

Always remember, you are greater than you think you are and  you can achieve whatever you put your mind to, believe me.
