Free

I once read “If we were to live, we had to be free of anger.” At first I thought this was an incredibly unrealistic goal… but now I get it. They weren’t really saying that I would never again experience anger, but that I would be able to get free of it when it does creep into my life. Today I know the truth about my anger (that it comes from my fear… not the actions of others)… & as a result, it can no longer control me… I’m free. The goal for today: know the truth… address the fear… eliminate anger… & be free! Have a great day everybody!

Feel The Freedom

“There are 2 ways to enter the final chamber… free or not free; the choice is ours” ~Jean Paul Sartre. We all came into this world with free will… & therefore, how we leave it is up to us. I want to leave this life knowing that I did everything I could to make the world a better place. And I believe that the best way to do that is to give all of the love in my heart, out freely to those around me. The less I think about “getting”… the more freedom I experience. The goal for today: feel the freedom of giving love! Have a great day everybody!

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!

Get Right… & Stay Right

In order to get Right & stay Right… I have to learn how to think Right & feel Right.

We get Right by following our Heart & we stay Right by helping others follow their Heart.

In between, we must think & feel Right.

What does that mean?

It means if I have to choose between helping someone & watching football… I have to look at helping others as the Right thing to do & feel Good about doing it.

If helping others feels bad… we have a problem.

The goal for today: let your Heart tell you mind that helping others feels Right… & then do it!

Have a great day everybody!

Principle

A Principle is an infallible, unbreakable Law of Life.

Here are some of the Principles that I have learned (usually the hard way)…

1) We can’t be selfish & Happy.

2) Anger ALWAYS comes from fear.

3) We can’t do Good & feel bad.

4) We can’t do bad & feel Good.

5) We can’t get until we give.

6) We can’t fix it if we won’t admit it.

7) We can’t fix anger with anger.

The goal for today: know that these Laws are etched in Stone… & working with them, rather than against them, is guaranteed to lead to Happiness!

Have a great day everybody!

Safe Or Free?

If you had to choose between safety or freedom, which would it be?

When I choose safety… I make myself a slave to my fears.

When I choose freedom… I feel alive & fearless.

The only real choice here is freedom!

Yes, it comes with some risks… but the alternative is a self-constructed prison cell, built on a foundation of fear.

The goal for today: acknowledge the fine line between foolishness & freedom… but always choose Life over that false sense of security!

Have a great day everybody!

The Truth

I’ve come to the realization that the only time I can be lied to is when I don’t want to know the Truth.

The Truth about everyone & everything exists deep down inside of each & every one of us.

If I am misled, I shouldn’t get upset with the person that lied to me… I should get upset with myself for not using my intuition to see through it.

The goal for today: want the Truth… seek the Truth… know the Truth… & live Free!

Have a great day everybody!
