Life is not nearly as complicated as we like to make it. Fear causes all negatives… & Love causes all positives. When someone makes a decision based on fear, something bad ALWAYS happens to someone. That also explains why bad things sometimes happen to good people; I could be the victim of your fear if I’m not careful. On the other hand, when someone makes a decision based on Love & does the Right thing, for the Right reason… something good ALWAYS happens to someone. That also explains why it’s so important to love your enemies; if you Love them they are no longer an enemy & the trouble ends. The goal for today: stop being afraid… & start giving Love! Have a great day everybody!
“What you are shouts so loudly that I can’t hear what you say” ~Emerson. One of the essential tools of helping others is the ability to see the Truth even when it’s the opposite of what’s being said. When I started helping people, I had a tendency to believe what they said & I got confused when the solution didn’t work for them. It didn’t work because they were saying one thing, but doing another. The easiest & most obvious example is when someone says: “I don’t care what anybody thinks about me!” That statement is always a lie & it’s my job to see through it. The goal for today: don’t tell me who you are… show me! Have a great day everybody!
A lot of what I write, prompts people to say things like… “Easier said than done” or “But it’s so hard to do.” I agree, living Right isn’t always easy… but neither is writing with my left hand, when I’m right handed. The only reason that anything on earth is hard to do is because we haven’t practiced it enough. Ambidextrous people don’t have a special gift from God, they simply practiced using both hands… & you could do it too, if you practiced. The goal for today: stop telling myself how incredibly difficult life is, practice living Right… & watch as life begins to get easier! Have a great day everybody!
Feelings require the consent of the feeler. What the hell does that mean? When people wrong me, I get to choose how I’m going to feel about it. Most of the world doesn’t believe that… but it is an absolute fact & we have proven it to ourselves many, many times in life. When someone wrongs me & I get upset, it actually isn’t their actions that upset me… it’s the fact that their actions, unearthed my fears. When I feel bad, it’s because I choose to… not because you made me. The goal for today: if someone wrongs me, or tries to make me feel bad… I simply won’t allow it! Have a great day everybody!
The Truth is not a convenience item that we get to conjure up when it suits us, and ignore when it doesn’t. We get to either live by the Truth… or not. When I do live by the Truth, good things happen & happiness follows. When I don’t live by the Truth, bad things happens & unhappiness follows. The Real Truth can only lead to happiness; so if I’m not happy… I’m not living True. The best part is that all I have to do to KNOW the Truth… is want it. The goal for today: find the Truth… apply it to your life to the best of your ability… & enjoy your happiness! Have a great day everybody!
I thought God wanted me to be alone, but He doesn’t… He just wants me to be with someone the Right way (without fear). I thought God wanted me to be poor, but He doesn’t… He just wants me to prosper the Right way (without dishonesty). I thought God wanted me to be boring, but He doesn’t… He just wants me to have fun the Right way (without selfishness). I thought God wanted me to be a doormat, but He doesn’t… He just wants me to defend myself the Right way (without resentment). The goal for today: know that God wants us to have it all… & we will, as soon as we start living Right! Have a great day everybody!
We constantly hear how important it is to live in the present moment, but we were never really taught how. I got a call from a friend saying… “I’m stressing out because I have a lot of important things coming up in the next few months. I’m so stressed I want to leave work.” Can you see the problem? We are all guilty of doing this… & we do it so much that it has become the norm for us. If I’m at work “today”… should I be thinking about something that might happen “next month” that has nothing to do with my job? The physical body is always in the present moment… make sure your mind is too. The goal for today: focus on the task at hand! Have a great day everybody!
