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

The Autumn Of The Year

It is the autumn of the year; our east coast has been severely hit by wind, water, snow and sand.  Many of the places I frequented as a child, teen and adult are now no more.  My relatives are doing well and making the best of things.  This can sound like our life at times…total destruction and a bleak outlook about what we see.  What we see may startle us at first and give us cause to pause with tears of despair and an, “Oh my god… ”  As the initial shock wears off we see new potential, we become invigorated, find the energy to go forward and create something new in our mind, then, in our outer life.  We may even find the resolve we’ve been looking for.  We become the phoenix and rise from the ashes with a new brightness and power to carry out our decisions.

How we view what is going on around us has a definite influence on how we see a way out of the rubble and onto better living.  Life is forever giving us clues as to how to better our living…perhaps it is an idea, or an opportunity, or a challenge, maybe we are inspired by a book, an article, or a column; whatever the clue is and wherever it came from appears in our life at the right time for the right reason, it then falls upon us to take action or not.

Moving forward means that we affirm, “I am in the right place, at the right time, and meet the right people and the right people meet me.”  Never doubt it, listen to your intuition, you never know who you will meet or what opportunity will present itself.  No-thing is impossible.  Dreams are given us to make real, from the ethereal to the material.  Desires to better our life and our world are impetuses that drive us forward utilizing our talents and abilities for the highest and best results. 

I am in the autumn of my life and am moving forward, undaunted and with more courage than I had a month ago, more energy, and more gusto, more me.  Life will always honor us at our own taking.  I am fulfilling a dream(s) and know all appears at the right time and it has.  Stop wondering how it will happen and just let it happen, I guarantee you will be surprised how “things” and “people” enter your life to better it.

Our Success

Our success is in living life.  It is in living with a positive attitude and foresight.

Our success is in being focused. In having a clear vision of our goals and where we are going.  If we need a clearer vision of our goals and where we desire to go in life, we can use either or both visualization techniques and meditation to help us center and afford us the opportunity to fine tune or set new goals.  Sometimes in our fine tuning we see, that, we are stubbornly holding on to some “thought or belief”  that is hampering our forward movement which can necessitate the replacing of the goal or merely recalibrating our thought/belief to be more in line with our ambition without being mulish about it.

Our success is in being open to new ideas, in new ways of doing things, it is about being flexible in life, thought and action/deed.  Not everything in life is black and white or blatantly obvious.  It is the varying shades in-between that color our life , that make us who we are, that gives us our character and unique successes , it colors our ambition to be all we can and to be successful in what we have chosen to do with our life.  There is no standing idly by waiting for success to suddenly appear in our life or drop into our lap as we sit in our easy chair or on the sofa while watching television. Write down or create a treasure map of where you see yourself, use positive wording, write in the present tense and make use of colorful pictures for impressing your mind.  Success is not difficult.  It is only our perception and belief of how hard we want to make it.  Success is a fun adventure; it is filled with thrills and chills, warmth and color, with passion and enthusiasm, with tears-some of sadness in the letting go and some of joy and happiness in the welcoming in.

When we know and affirm that we always meet the right people at the right time and right place, it happens.

When we believe and affirm we are always in the right place at the right time, it happens.

When we believe and affirm that the right “things” appear in our life at the right time for our benefit, they do.

Success is in knowing that so-called chance meetings bring success to both us and the others involved. 

Success is in listening and heeding our intutiion.

When we know and accept that life has been and is always for us, then,changes appear in our experiences. 

The power of our success is in the power of our thoughts and beliefs.  It is in gaining new perceptions and new concepts about living and life.  It is up to us to be open to life and all that is now and always has been ready to bestow upon us for a better and greater life of success, prosperity, health, wealth and well-being.

Our success is in being us; for all our faults and foibles. 

Grow, change, fine tune, appreciate yourself for you, for your talents and abilities, above all, for the uniquely successful character you are.

Success, and all that perks that come with it,  is knocking, open the door and welcome it into your life and affairs.

The Simple Life Part 2 Of 2

   Life is easy, but we tend to complicate it with our fears, negative emotions, anger, upset and at times a not so great overall view of life.  My advice, “Stop making life so difficult.”  The sooner we can get past the gunky thinking, (that which clogs and stops up creativity and the flow of good into our life), the sooner we begin to realize improvement and a sense of joy in achieving and being.

Understanding the law of cause and effect and taking responsibility for our thoughts and life are essential first steps in success.

Over the years I have been asked to, “Fix me but don’t change me.”  Talk about an impossibility!  My response was, “I can’t fix you but I can help you change, if you want.”   If a person is unwilling to change the causation of their undesired experiences there are no band-aid remedies that will make it go away or patch it up like new—not even duct tape will help.

Life is what we make it, good, bad, indifferent, difficult, easy, sad or happy, it is up to us get our buns in gear and move up and out of mediocrity to phenomenal.

If you want to participate in life so be it but if not…well, just keep it to yourself; don’t continue to spew negatives about what others are doing, their dreams or goals. We have all met people who like to pontificate on all subjects, like to tell people what to do and how to do, all the while their life is so messed up that it is unbelievable, it gets tiresome after a while, perhaps we feel sorry for them.  The amazing thing is, when help is offered their fear appears and causes them to run from the offer with a variety of excuses and continue their mere existence with the same hurt, tears, anger and upset not only at themselves and others, but the world.  Eventually, when they tire of their situation, they will ask for help to the outstretched hand of the one who previously offered.  This is where you and others of the same positive mindset become the example, the teacher, the storyteller, the healer, the motivator, the friend.

You are the most important thing you can give to the world. Smile, take life by the hand and show it what you want with focus, determination, knowing and authority.  Life will then become that which you have shown it.
