Life Happens

   Once in awhile Life Happens. 

Most of the time we run on automatic, not really thinking nor really aware of what is going in and around us, just doing like an automaton (robot).   You noticed I did not write living but doing a very big distinguishable difference. 

Life Happens when we begin to take stock in ourselves, become self-aware and pay attention to that which we are thinking, what is going on around us and decide, fully aware, what we will allow to influence us.  Why not declare and accept our greater good and get our thoughts, beliefs and concepts in line with our goals, our desires and our dreams?  Life is merely waiting for our acceptance of It to grace us with Its greater good which is swirling ’round about us waiting for us to open the door of acceptance that it may flood our being, our lives, with the riches of life, seen and unseen.    

Life happens when we realize our value as an individual and accept that we are worthy of greater and more positive and enriching ways of living and experiencing life and living.  As we increase our self-awareness, self-worth, self-confidence, and self-acceptance we move in an upward and forward direction reaping the benefits of this new way of thinking and believing in ourselves.  Time to get off the pity pot, get rid of the “poor me” attitude, scrap the self-doubt, and enter into the power of self-realization.  As has been said, “You are the power.”  

Positive and productive thinking is our start.  As we apply the principles of positive mental attitudes to our life we will see a definite turnaround of events.  Time to eradicate the doubt and disbelief and embrace Life with a deeper faith in self, knowing that our creative mind, our imagination-the key element for visualization of our greater good, and thoughts can and will bring us success and victory over that which appears to be not so wonderful at the current moment.  Watch as the veil of disbelief lifts and reveals the light of a wondrous day, a wonderful moment a fantastic now experience. 

Believe in yourself, your power and ability to do and to be the successful and prosperous person you desire to be.

Your Time Is Now. Let Life Happen!

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is by Ernest Holmes.

“From far and near, my own shall come to me.  Even now, it is coming to me and I receive it.”

“Every thought sets the fulfillment of its desire in motion in mind, and mind sees the thing as already done.”

“What if”?

   I sit here this morning at the dining room table wondering “what if” about a variety of subjects and how it would be “if”; but I dwell in the abstractions of life and see things perhaps in a different light than most, as has been apparent all my life in the fields I am part of: writing, acting, public speaking, the ministry (retired for the most part), baking, cooking, the arts in general. 

The creativity we seek for moving forward to better living is an abstract, it is a cause that evolves in our mind as an idea to take action on and if we choose to follow that inspiration so be it. 

Much of the way we seem to be living is by allowing the outside events to control and influence us to the point of upset, dismay, discontent and the like.   

Life is always lived from within out.  The outer life is a reflection of our inner convictions, beliefs, and concepts.  Do unexpected things happen in our life, of course they do, we are part of this world and the unexpected does pop up, but is it really unexpected or is it a fear or thought that has been planted from years ago that is now coming into our life? Is it because we are part of other peoples lives who are experiencing life at their level of belief and causes us heartache or upset due to the love or caring we have for them?  Is it because we need to learn something from this experience which will not only help us but others?  Is it something about fear, say of moving forward or of grasping a new idea to lead us onward and upward, or, could it be the manifestation of our dissatisfaction with our job or our life in general that is causing us angst as a physical condition?  “What if” it is?

“What if” you and I decided to take action, beginning in our mind-abstract thought-causation (all thought is abstract), to change/alter our response to a situation? What if” we did?  Would we benefit from it?  Yes.  What would we learn from this new perspective?  Perhaps it would be learning how to handle this type of situation without giving it power to upset us, maybe it would be a gaining a greater understanding of not only the situation and those involved but of ourselves as well.  “What if” our thoughts are truly “things” in the invisible world of causation that when impressed on the receptive substance of the Universe takes form in our life according to that specific thought?  Just, “what if?”

“What if” I or someone else told you, you have more power over your life than you currently think or believe and you actually believed it?  What would you do to change the course of your life to make it better?  What thoughts would you change permanently, or would you even be willing to give them up because you are more comfortable in the predictable outcomes.  We have all been there.  We are at times more comfortable with the uncomfortable and the predictable because it is known and the unknown can scare the Hades out of us.  Been there and it is not fun, as you no doubt well know.  “What if” we changed?

“What if” I told you that positive thinking is merely a beginning step to self-realization where in the understanding of the abstract brings forth the concrete, material, form of that knowing?  “What if” you and I started today to take charge of our thinking, our beliefs and concepts concerning ourselves and our world of experience?  “What if” it brought us the success we wanted in all areas of our life?

“What if”?

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
