Today’s Positive Thought

My World   Today’s Positive Thought is by Thomas Troward.

“We should aim not so much at having or making some particular thing as at expressing all that we are.  The expressing will grow out of realising the treasures that are ours already, and contemplating the beauty, the affirmative side, of all that we are now, apart from the negative conceptions and detractions which veil this good from us.”

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.

“Our thought as feeling is the magnet which draws to us those conditions which accurately correspond to itself.  This is the meaning of the saying that, ‘thoughts are things’.”

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is by Thomas Troward.  Something to ponder.

“There is a world of philosophy in the simple statement that there can be no inside without and outside, and no outside without an inside; and the great secret in life is in learning to see things in their wholeness, and to realise the inside and outside simultaneously.”

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is by Thomas Troward.  I want to share with you the following which was published over 100 years ago.

“Therefore think Life, illumination, harmony, prosperity, happiness–think the things rather than this or that condition of them.  And then the sure operation of the Universal Law these things will form themselves into the shapes best suited to your particular case, and will enter your life as active, living forces, which will never depart from you because you know them to be part and parcel of your own being.”

A Tuesday Thought

   A Tuesday Thought concerns not limiting the way success and prosperity can enter into our lives.

At times life offers us new and unique opportunities to experience success and prosperity which is not necessarily the way we envision it entering our lives.  It is important for us to remain open-minded about these “new and unique ways.”  Who knows, you may change the direction you are going in and initiate/create something so unique and wonderful you end up being the newest mogul and originator of a product destined for greatness.  

Along these lines I want to share with you a quote by Thomas Troward. 

“We must not make ourselves dependent on any particular form of wealth, or insist on its coming to us through some particular channel.”

There are so many ways for us to achieve our goals; it is imperative to be flexible and open-minded as we travel the road of success.  When we put our creative power to work for us setting the wheels in motion, remember not to restrict the way our greater good can enter our lives.  Keep a guard at the doorway of your mind and monitor the thoughts, beliefs and attitudes you allow to enter into play. 

Clearly the creative power within us is unlimited so why restrict or limit it; time to let it produce the results which will take us where we desire to go.  Identify with your end results, see it, claim it, and accept it as yours in the here and now.

Keep in mind…What you can conceive of, have a deep and abiding belief in, you can achieve.   

Life is wonderful and so are you.
