Today’s Positive Thought

Tday Flwrs   Today’s Positive Thought is by Jay.

There are times we need to retreat to our inner cave and realize our worthiness to live a better life in order to release whatever we are holding onto that is keeping us where we are…time to let go of anger, hate, upset, negativity, etc. be it toward ourself or others or a situation-personal and/or professional.  There will be tears and a feeling of relief and perhaps it will be accompanied by sadness as we say goodbye to the old ways that have held us back…a symbolic death and rebirth to a new and more vibrant life.  Where I live it is Spring, and life is expressing itself by the beautiful rebirth of colors in the flowers, trees and in the bright sunny days with a gentle caressing breeze filled with the aroma of life.  Let the beauty of Spring and rebirth fill you and guide you into a new way of living and expressing your life.  Jay

 

Today’s Positive Thought

Circles   Today’s Positive Thought is by Ernest Holmes.

“The storehouse of nature is filled with infinite good, awaiting the touch of our awakened thought to spring forth into manifestation in our lives; but the awakening must be within our thought!”

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.

The Pool

   The pool…a great summer relaxer; a place to cool off, exercise, have weekend get togethers, BBQ’s, clam bakes, and if no one is looking, skinny dipping on a starlit night, but I digress. 

Yet, in order to enjoy the pool we have to prepare it for the summer festivities.  Removing the pool cover and inflated pillows from a green slime environment is not always the best or easiest of chores after a long winter.  It requires hard work and elbow grease to remove the slime, scrub it down with acid, and adding a new coat of paint to really clean and dress up the pool for the new fresh water that we will be filling it with for summer fun.  But all the hard work pays off in the end and soon we put the memory of cleaning behind us and enjoy the benefits of the pool.

Bet you are waiting for the analogy, well here it is.  The pool and cover represent our mind which lays dormant with old ideas, thoughts, beliefs and concepts closed up and covered in a green slime.  In order for a fresh new start one must begin the cleaning up with diligence and purpose for the fresh water, new fluidic thoughts, ideas, and concepts  to give us a new, invigorating, successful life.  Like the pool we remove the scum, drain out the stagnant thoughts, and create a new receptive consciousness to receive our greater good…this means skinny dipping.  What?  Skinny dipping! In other words, stripping off the old and diving into the new water for an invigorating experience and life.  Time to stand naked in the sun (figuratively) and let the rays of life give us new beginnings…time to bloom into who and what we really are…winter is gone, time to spring into summer with that new mental outfit.  You look marvelous, darling!

Life honors us as we honor ourselves.  

We are empowered and given the abilities/talents to be; successful, wealthy, healthy, wise, joyous, and happy.  How much is up to  us.

You were created to experience the highest and best life has to offer, don’t ever doubt or forget it!!

You and everyone else has a purpose.  You give meaning to life just by being and by being and expressing your creative persona you enhance your life experiences which allows you to share with others your good fortune. Life is both give and take, take and give; it is a circle.  Life, the creative intelligence of the universe, desires to give to us in abundance and in order to receive we must be willing to take, receive, through the power of our thoughts and beliefs.  Then, as we receive we give back to the world around us and complete the circle.  Also, another key is increasing our self-worth and self-acceptance…there is a huge difference between knowing our worth and accepting ourselves and ego tripping…a really big no no!

This summer, stay as  positive as possible about yourself, others, situations and events.  Remember to utilize your intuition and act, not react.  

I wish you a wonderful summer experience and a pool filled the invigorating waters of life.

Jay
