Thinking

“What you think upon grows” ~Emmet Fox. For some reason I refused to believe that it could be that simple. If I think about misery, depression & unhappiness… that’s what I get. If I think about peace, contentment & happiness… that’s what I get. So the next time someone or something is troubling you… think about something else. I know you are thinking “easier said than done”… but Right thinking is actually a hell of a lot easier! The goal for today: think Right, feel Right, act Right… in that order! Have a great day everybody!

The Heart Is Our Filter

I don’t like when other people try to run my life, but somehow I thought it was alright for me to try to run everybody else’s. 

Most of my life I have been stubborn & arrogant & I would always rebel at the thought of being controlled. 

Nobody’s got it all figured out… we can offer advice & suggestions, but nobody should do what I say… just because I said so. 

The goal for today: be openminded enough to take suggestions… but always run them by my conscience… my heart… my God… before taking action! 

Have a great day everybody!

Follow Your Heart

If someone tells me one thing & God tells me another… I’m going with God. 

This is true meaning of “follow your heart” & it’s always the Right thing to do. 

We all know Right from wrong because we can feel it in our hearts. 

There isn’t a human being alive that hasn’t experienced that feeling of: “This is a bad idea… I probably shouldn’t do it” & this sense of conscience comes from God. 

The goal for today: when my head tells me one thing & my heart tells me another… I should always follow my heart! 

Have a great day everybody!

Follow Your Heart… Not My Opinion

Someone asked this question… “I committed to something & now I don’t want to do it… what should I do?” 

I could flip a coin, pick a side & give them my screwed up opinion… or I could encourage them to consult their own conscience & uncover their real motives. 

My response… “Do you not want to do it because ‘it’ is selfish… or because ‘you’ are being selfish?” 

The goal for today: know that the Right answers come from our hearts… not other people’s opinions! 

Have a great day everybody!

My Heart Spoke To Me

A good friend recently said to me that they had a problem & their Heart spoke to them & it said…

“What would you do if you were not afraid? That is what you should do.”

That’s an incredible piece of advice, that can be applied to any & all situations… they are in fact, words to live by.

If I want to be truly happy… I must not make decisions based on fear.

The goal for today: make decisions based on faith & courage… & find out what real happiness feels like!

Have a great day everybody!

Your Beliefs… Or My Beliefs?

I can’t build my life based on your beliefs.

Not only is it a bad idea to blindly follow the beliefs of others, but it’s actually impossible.

Anything that I’ve been taught that I don’t truly believe, in my own heart, will fade away eventually.

It is impossible to build a belief system on things that I don’t believe.

The goal for today: know that the most important thing for me to do is to search my own heart & find out what I really believe, because Peace & Happiness never come from begrudgingly following someone else’s beliefs & ideas.

Have a great day everybody!
