Today’s Positive Thought

WorldToday’s Positive Thought is by Dr. George Holden.

“The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see.”

Today’s Positive Thought

Today’s Positive Thought is by Walt Whitman.

“To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle.  Every cubic inch of space is a miracle.”

Miracles

   Miracles.  Many years ago there were a few of us who entered the ministry within a few months of each other.  One of those was our friend, Rev. Helen; she, at that time, had a church in Hawaii.  While we were on holiday there we met for lunch one day.  As a preface to this let me state, we were/are practitioners of a spiritual healing technique call Spiritual Mind Treatment.  In order to enter the ministry one had to have proof of at least three individual documented case histories that had a healing; with doctor confirmation that the condition no longer existed, or other verifiable documentation. Helen, being innovative and one to speak her mind, called miracles “ordinaries,” as they happen all the time in life, both my wife and I were really impressed with her new word and shared it with my congregation upon our return home. 

Miracles are “Ordinaries” in which both of us believe as well as Divine Intervention.

Just look at what we say when we find a parking space near a mall entrance at holiday times, “It’s a miracle I found this space.”  Think about it…how many times do you say, “It’s a miracle,” more than once in awhile I’ll wager.   

Some years ago I saw an older gent collapse, through all this we had direct eye contact, a doctor who saw the event took his vitals and told those who were there to render aid that the older gentleman had passed on; no attempt to revive him.  Having worked in a hospital I was familiar with the look of death in the eyes, which he had. Still maintaining eye contact and as many watched the goings on his body suddenly arched and life returned to him and his eyes.  It was not his time and that my friends, was an awe inspiring experience for me. Miraculous, yes, it was an Oh My God Moment to the nth degree. 

Miracles are not out of the ordinary, in fact throughout the ages we have been told that we are capable of many things and are powerful if we have but the “faith of a grain of mustard seed.”   The miracles we seek are at our finger tips, so to speak, the miracle power resides within our hearts and minds. The miracle is but our recognition of the divine power within us to bring forth that which we have believed without question.

Take time to consider your inner power, the power of your spoken word, and ability within you to live the life you choose, to be as successful as you desire, to be; prosperous, wealthy, healthy, and the like.  Focus on where you want to go and stop looking at what you don’t want. Give your undivided attention to your forward moving desire/goal and stay the course.  I paraphrase Isaiah, “So shall my word go forth to accomplish that for which it was sent and it shall not return unto me void.”

By no means are you ordinary.  You are an extraordinary expression of Life Itself, experiencing lots and lots of wonderful “ordinaries.”

In loving recognition and memory of a very dear friend, Rev. Helen.

Today’s PositiveThought

   Today’s Positive Thought are quotes from the book, The Greatest Salesman In The World, by, Og Mandino.

“I am nature’s greatest miracle.”

“All men are my brothers yet I am different from each.  I am a unique creature.”

“…I will capitalize on this difference for it is an asset to be promoted to the fullest…I begin now to accent my differences…”

“I am not on this earth by chance.  I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand.”

Friday’s Info

   Friday’s Info.  I wanted to share with you a quote from one of Alan H. Cohen’s books.  

“If you approach life with the belief that it [is not great], it stands little chance to be wonderful.  If you approach it with the expectation that your good can and will come to you, it will be extraordinary.  Henry Ford noted, ‘Think you can or think you can’t, and either way you’ll be correct.’  Albert Einstein put it this way, ‘There are only two ways to live your life; one is as though nothing is a miracle, and the other is as though everything is a miracle.’  Miracles come to the miracle-minded and dramas befall the drama-minded.  Miracles and tragedies are both interpretations, and interpretations craft experience.  Your life will shrink or expand according to your expectation.  Whatever size cup you bring will be filled, so make it big one.”
