Thursday Thought, No Fear

The Thursday Thought, No Fear, is by Ernest Holmes.

“Fear robs memory of happiness because it dwells upon the limitations and morbidities of the past; it robs the future of pleasurable and enthusiastic anticipation because it casts a shadow of its past into the future; it robs today of the possibility of fulfillment because it denies the good we might experience in the moment in which we live.”

Being successful is more than accumulating things i.e., money, cars, houses, jewelry, and the like.  Being successful is about being you, embracing yourself, accepting yourself and allowing yourself to express life in a joyous and happy way that represents you and from that come the “things “ of success.  Doing what we love, creating what we love from the invisible thought/idea and bringing it to life in the visible world of effect is what it is all about.  So many think of success as the attainment of “things”, the attitude of, he/she with the most toys wins…ha!  There is nothing wrong with having lots of toys but the attainment of toys should not be the sole motivation for being truly successful and having a life of well-being. 

If we can think of life as a play or film that we produce, write, direct and star in it can give us a better edge on achieving our goal.  At times we write dramas, other times comedies, and of course tragedy creeps in from time to time but being the hero or heroine of this show we always come out on top in the end.  Time to write the script for success.

We write this script of success with our thoughts, attitudes, ideas, dreams and desires. As we progress there are script changes, scene changes, and lighting changes taking place within our mind.  These changes present to us a new point of focus, a new direction to follow for the next scene of our life of success.

Each and every thought that we incorporate into our life affects the outcome of any given situation.  Doubt and fear produce lack and perhaps self-sabotage.  Belief and faith in what we are doing produces success to one degree or another.  That is why it has been taught; keep a guard at the doorway of your thoughts.

Let us be careful in choosing the words we have in our script and how we set up for the next shot, how we direct ourselves and how we portray ourselves in this role of a successful, creative individual.

This is a basic simplified overview that can be used for reference as we write our script.

Continued success,

The Now

   How often do we ever think about living in the moment, the now?

It seems we tend to view the past or skip to the future but overlook the present moment in which we are living and breathing, perhaps not even aware of this present moment in time.

It is in this present moment that we can take action to create a better future moment to enjoy.

Do we allow the past moments to influence our future, of course we do.  Until we take the time to cease letting the past repeat itself in the future we exist in a vicious circle of history repeating itself and the future moment relived with all the angst of the past and perhaps more.  But the angst relived is always in the present which is the future we had set up in the past present moment of a moment ago.

Life is an awareness of self, of our power, talent, and ability to express It in all It’s great good in the here and now.

We can let past melancholia seep into the future present moment of time or we allow ourselves to take control of our thoughts, beliefs and concepts to initiate a more wonderful future present moment.  Life is how we direct it to be.  Life takes the form of what we deeply believe it is and what we believe we are and worthy of in living our life.

It is the simplicity of living that can be the hardest to achieve with all the fears and blocks we have set up for ourselves to better living.  Do we all have our challenges to overcome?  Yes, each and every one of us.

As we go forward let us not put ourselves down because “I am not…,” but build ourselves up because “I am…”     

Each and every obstacle, challenge, problem that comes our way allow us to utilize the power of our mind to vanquish them with positivity, faith, trust, and confidence in that we are the power over that which has none.  Those non-living “things” only have as much power over us as we give them.

YOU ARE THE POWER AND AUTHORITY IN YOUR LIFE, HERE AND NOW.

Use it wisely.

Saturday Idea

   Saturday Idea is by Dr. Venice Bloodworth from her book, Key To Yourself.

“It does not matter what your present condition may be, it rests with you to change it and make your future exactly what you would have it to be.  There is no limit to the creative power of the Universal Mind and it… moves in ageless, changeless, eternal silence bringing to you with exact precision the full measure of your thoughts.”

Thursday Thought

   Thursday Thought is by Dr. R.C. Barker.

“You live in the eternal now.  This instant is the only instant in which you are thinking.  Being the only time in which you are aware, it is therefore the only time in which you can erase out of the subconsciousness what you don’t want.  It is also the only time in which you can place in the subconscious what you want…This unconscious part of you, which is the creative part of you, always works in the present, and it always works according to the motivating idea of the present.”
