“Don’t take my word for it, try it and prove to yourself whether or not it’s accurate” ~Emmet Fox. I was the type of person that would cynically dissect everything I heard or read, claim it was bullshit (without ever having tried it), and then settle comfortably back into my misery. The above quote broke me out of that old bad habit & encouraged me to take a good hard look at why I was doing that. I found that I was afraid of change, I was afraid of being wrong & I was afraid of letting go of some destructive behaviors… because I “thought” it was what I wanted to do. The goal for today: change is awesome… ignorance is not… the Truth will set you free… don’t knock it ‘til you try it! Have a great day everybody!
“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal” ~Thomas Jefferson. For example: if I want to quit smoking, I need the Right mental attitude. I should do it because it’s the Right thing to do… not because I “have” to. I have to tell myself the Truth… that there are exactly zero positive benefits to doing it. I need to set my mind on helping others… rather than helping myself. And if I can get those Right… then I can claim to be living based on the Love of Life for all. The goal for today: know that with Purity, Honesty, Unselfishness & Love… we can achieve anything! Have a great day everybody!
“It is a spiritual axiom that anytime we are disturbed, no matter what the cause, there is something wrong with us” ~Anon. I’m aggravated & annoyed this morning. Life isn’t going my way at the moment & it has me a bit frustrated. Fortunately, there is a solution! I need to spot “my” mistake (fear, dishonesty, selfishness or resentment) ask God at once to remove it, discuss it with someone, make amends quickly if I have harmed anyone, and then resolutely turn my thoughts to someone I can help. This is a guaranteed formula for overcoming any & all problems. The goal for today: practice what I preach! Have a great day everybody!
I’ve been writing books for about 7 years now & I’m about to start publishing them. The first books to be published will be my daily inspirational writings, under the title “Inspiration With Explanation” & will probably be released like a book series with a new volume coming out on an annual basis. Volume 1 is complete & will be in print very soon! I have 2 other book projects in the works, one of which will be the crown jewel of my collection. It is a book that can & will change the world… if the world will let it.
I have also teamed up with Gaia Game Studios, in creating a recovery based board game. I am a recovered alcoholic/addict, 12 years removed from my troubles & I have gained an immense amount of knowledge & information on the subject of addiction & recovery. I am extremely excited about this project for a number of reasons. 1) The world needs what this game offers. 2) No one has ever done anything like this. 3) It makes recovery fun. 4) It can replace some of the social life lost. 5) It will appeal to everyone… whether you are new to recovery, been around a while, or even if you are just a friend or family member of an addict or alcoholic. 6) It’s a far more enjoyable way to learn than just being told “Go home & read your book.” 7) It encourages friendship & fellowship within the realm of recovery. 8) It is simple & understandable. 9) It will help answer hundreds… if not thousands of questions about recovery. 10) It is being built with the utmost care… constructed out of life, love, spirit, soul, truth, intelligence & principle. 11) It might just be the beginning of the end of all of your problems. 12) Last, but certainly not least… it will help save lives! We have a tentative release date of February 2017… & I will do my best to keep you posted moving forward.
Thank you to everyone that took a few minutes to read this… we live in a busy world, & time is at a premium… so from the bottom of my heart… thank you!
“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!
Anger ALWAYS comes from fear!
A friend: Are you afraid of what other people think of you?
A friend: Do you get mad when people talk shit about you?
A friend: Then you are afraid of what other people think of you.
A friend: Are you afraid of being alone?
A friend: Would you get mad if your significant other cheated on you?
A friend: Then you are afraid of being alone.
A friend: Are you afraid of running out of money?
A friend: Would you get mad if someone stole your money?
A friend: Then you are afraid of running out of money.
The goal for today: tell myself the Truth & fix these fears!
Have a great day everybody!
