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!

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!

Think & Feel

“Whatever I think, I feel… & I would much rather feel good” ~Jenn Coleman. 

This can be confusing, but once we get it, it changes our lives for the better, from start to finish. 

If I want to feel Right… I have to think Right first. Our thoughts control our emotions & our emotions control our actions. 

Thinking about helping others, feels good & when I feel good about the Right thought, it makes it much easier to physically go & do it. 

The goal for today: let God direct my thinking, let Right thinking bring good feelings & let good feelings ensure Right actions! 

Have a great day everybody!

I Nearly Thought Myself To Death

If I’m thinking about the past for any reason other than attempting to help someone, I will end up depressed. 

If I’m thinking about the future for any reason other than attempting to help someone, I will end up with anxiety. 

It took me a long time to get this Right. 

I spent about 20 yrs thinking myself to death & missing out on Life. 

My screwed up thinking robbed me of all of my Happiness & Usefulness. 

The goal for today: think about Life & all that I can potentially contribute to it! 

Have a great day everybody!

Convinced

I was convinced that I wanted things that I didn’t really want. 

I thought I wanted to be angry… but I didn’t. 

I thought I wanted to be lazy… but I didn’t. 

I thought I wanted to turn my brain off… but I didn’t. 

All I really want is to be Happy… & all I have to do to achieve that goal is care about other people. 

Helping others is what we all really want to do. 

The goal for today: I want to Love people… pull my weight & use the brains that God gave me! 

Have a great day everybody!

Triggers & Temptations

There are many theories about things like triggers & temptations that cause us to do things that we shouldn’t do. 

We talk about the effect that our environment has on us & we basically claim that our lives are not under our own control. 

None of this it true! 

Triggers & temptations are wrong thoughts… & I can change them. 

Letting my past control my present is a wrong thought & I can change that too. 

The goal for today: think like a sane person… feel like a sane person & then I can act like a sane person! 

Have a great day everybody!

Aim To Be Helpful

“To be helpful is our only aim” ~Anon.

All I ever want to do is help people!

I ask God to help me be helpful to you.

I think about helping you.

I feel really good about the idea of helping you.

And once I’ve prayed about it… thought it through… & feel good about the path I’ve chosen… then I should physically carry out the act of being helpful.

Whether it’s face to face… through these writings… or indirectly when the people I help, help others… I always try to be helpful.

The goal for today: aim to be helpful!

Have a great day everybody!
