Happiness, Freedom, Purity & Love

Freedom comes when the desire to be happy is stronger than the fear of being alone.

There have been many people throughout history that have tried to remind us that Freedom is far more important than safety… that Happiness is a Pure motive & fear is not.

I’ve adopted this belief because it has proven itself to me.

I should do the Right thing because it’s the Right thing to do… not because I’m afraid of what will happen if I don’t.

The goal for today: be motivated by Happiness, Freedom, Purity & Love!

Have a great day everybody!

Fear… The Destructive Power

Fear is easily the destructive power in the world.

Fear causes relationships to fail, opportunities to be missed, finances to go south, sleepless nights, ill health & any other problem I can dream up.

Finding a solution to fear is the single most important undertaking of our lives.

Getting rid of fear is vital & if you don’t know how… I have found a very workable method & would be glad to teach it to you.

The goal for today: spot, admit & correct my fears… & then show others how to do the same!

Have a great day everybody!

Personal Responsibility

When our store was robbed… 1st I blamed the criminal… 2nd I blamed a guy for not calling the cops when he saw this suspicious guy outside.

But before I could blame anyone else, the police said: “No cameras… that sucks!”

“Your register is right by the front door… you made it easy for him.”

“No drop safe… that’s a lot of cash to leave in the register.”

Should the criminal pay… sure.

Should that guy have called the police… probably.

But I am ultimately responsible for what befell my business.

The goal for today: personal responsibility!

Have a great day everybody!

Religious Or Not

I’m not a big fan of organized religion, but I am a big fan of ‘To each his own’.

That being said… when I read the Bible, I’m not looking for a system of theology.

I’m looking for Spiritual Principles that can give me a better idea about how to live Right.

Moses said ‘Thou shall not kill’… & Jesus said… If I Love you, I won’t kill you.

The goal for today: let the common sense of Real Love be the common denominator for all of us… religious or not!

Have a great day everybody!

You Must Be Brave

“Show the world that love is still the light… you must be brave” ~Ozzy.

It takes courage to have faith.
It takes courage to be positive.
It takes courage to trust God.
It takes courage to openly Love.
It takes courage to be the Light.

And all it takes to be exactly the opposite of all of this, is fear… but I’m done with that.

The goal for today: be brave enough to show the world that Love is still the Light… I Love you!

Have a great day everybody!

Choose My Thoughts

“It is in the selection of your thoughts that your destiny lies” ~Emmet Fox.

I never believed this until I was driven back on my heels & had no choice but to try it.

Sure enough, once I tried it, it worked perfectly.

If I’m having a problem, I must take action to fix it, but the only way to insure that I take the Right action is to learn how to think properly first.

The goal for today: take control of my destiny by choosing to think (I ask God)… & therefore act… like a sane person!

Have a great day everybody!

Love, Happiness & Helpfulness To Others

“What you seek is seeking you” ~Rumi.

A friend shared this great quote with me & I felt compelled to share it with you.

What it tells me is that I’ll find exactly what I’m looking for in life.

When I was experiencing misery, depression & failure… I was seeking it.

Why I was seeking those things, could take days to explain (I will take time to explain it to anyone in need)… but I always find what I seek.

The goal for today: seek & find Love, Happiness & Helpfulness to others!

Have a great day everybody!

If It Doesn’t Bring Happiness… Get Rid Of It

Yesterday I said that complaining never brought me any happiness.

Well, here are a few more things that never brought me any happiness.

Fear… it made me a slave to whatever I was afraid of.

Dishonesty… it always made my fears worse.

Selfishness… it drove many good people & situations out of my life.

Resentment… no matter how justified, it was always destructive.

The goal for today: put my best effort into being Pure, Honest, Selfless, Loving & Happy!

Have a great day everybody!

Hypocrite

“We spoke of intolerance while we were intolerant ourselves” ~Anon.

I was a hypocrite most of my life.

I would complain about the way people act, when in reality… I was doing all the same things.

I don’t want to be a hypocrite anymore…
I don’t want to be angry anymore…
I don’t want to complain anymore!

Complaining never brought me an ounce of happiness & therefore… it’s gotta go!

The goal for today: make sure that I’m living the Right way!

Have a great day everybody!

It’s Not Ok

Instead of consoling or justifying our mistakes… maybe we should learn & teach each other how to properly cope with & correct those mistakes.

If I’m sending a text message & cause a car accident… don’t say “It’s ok… it was an accident.” Say “You F’d up… let’s fix it & prevent a reoccurrence.”

This bleeding heart coddling & flat out evading the Truth… is keeping us from fixing our problems.

The goal for today: put a wholehearted effort into knowing, speaking & living the Truth!

Have a great day everybody!
