Today’s Positive Thought

Sunrise   Today’s Positive Thought is by Ralph Waldo Emerson.  This is a favorite.

“Finish every day and be done with it.  You have done what you could.  Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.  This day is all that is good and fair.  It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterday.”

“Joy is the emotion excited by the expectancy of good.”  Ernest Holmes

“Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”  Nathaniel Hawthorne

“Love is the self-givingness of the Spirit through the desire of Life to express Itself in terms of creation.”  Ernest Holmes

The Spirit Of It

The following quote , Entering Into The Spirit Of It, is by Thomas Troward from his book, The Hidden Power. 

“Entering into the spirit of it.”  What a common expression!  And yet how much it really means, how absolutely everything.  We enter into the spirit of an undertaking, into the spirit of a movement, into the spirit of an author, even into the spirit of a game; and it makes all the difference both to us and to that which we enter.  A game without any spirit is a poor affair; and association in which there is no spirit falls to pieces; and a spiritless undertaking is sure to be a failure.  On the other hand, the book which is meaningless to the unsympathising reader is full of life and suggestion to the one who enters into the spirit of the writer; the man who enters into the spirit of the music finds a spring of refreshment in some fine recital which is entirely missed by the cold critic who comes only to judge according to the standard of a rigid rule; and so on in every case that we can think of.  If we do not enter the spirit of a thing, it has no invigorating effect upon us, and we regard it as dull, insipid and worthless.  This is dour everyday experience, and these are the words in which we express it.  And the words are well chosen.  They show our intuitive recognition of the spirit as the fundamental reality in everything, however small or however great.  Let us be right as to the spirit of a thing, and everything else will successfully follow.

Feel Like

   Ever feel like you are in the  Sahara Desert?  All dried up and withering in the hot sun and stung by the wind blowing sand at you?  When we are feeling sorry for ourselves and all that we are going through an oasis suddenly appears in the middle of it all, giving us; hope, water, shade, date palms and most of all rest from the weariness of all that is going on in our life.

What is this oasis?  It is our inner self beckoning us to rest and partake of the offerings at this oasis to become revitalized, reinvigorated, energized to move forward with a new inner fortitude to overcome the so-called problems/challenges and be renewed in our mind.  We are reminded of our own power and abilities to live life fully, completely and most of all filled not only with a sense of well-being but a life of well-being.  This includes success in being us and prospering by our new attitude and vision of successful living from plain and ordinary to the grandeur of life and all the perks that go with it.  It is at this point we decide, enough already, get off the pity pot and get moving.

The oasis and well-spring of life is within us, it is our spirit.  It is that which knows that we know that all is possible to us. We can be, have and accomplish whatever it is we desire, no limits.  The green and coolness of the oasis bids us to stay and drink from the well-spring which gives us inspiration, focus, direction and has imbued us with the power and authority to champion our lives.

The well-spring of this beautiful oasis is forever within us and when we need to rest, regroup and refocus it is always there for us to visit and relax from the all that is going on in our lives.  As we lean against the palm tree, enjoying the sweetness of its fruit and support, a new inspiration will enrapt us and lead us forward. 

So if you feel you are in the middle of a desert, look up and nearer than you think is the oasis you are looking for.  Stop and refresh yourself.  Let this oasis breathe a fresh breath of life into you through inspiration and inner knowing while you are savoring the sweet dates and shade of the palm tree.         

You deserve the highest and best life has to offer.  Enjoy the journey on the new road of inspiration, focus and direction.
