Everything is easy in hindsight… but what about insight & foresight? We can all look back & clearly see what we should have done instead, but the real key to life is to look back on past mistakes specifically to avoid making the same mistakes here in the present (insight)… knowing that if I take the opposite action, I will get the opposite outcome moving forward (foresight). Example: in the past I was selfish & it made me unhappy; so if I live unselfishly today, happiness will be the guaranteed outcome. The goal for today: learn from the past… so I can live Right in the present… & enjoy a future full of happiness! Have a great day everybody!
“I’m not hurting anybody but myself” was one of my favorite things to say when I wasn’t living Right… but now I know better. Everything we do affects other people… good, bad, or otherwise. I used to avoid family & close friends when I was a screw up because I thought I was sparing them from having to deal with my screw ups. But then it dawned on me that avoiding my loved ones was hurting them too. And more importantly… now I see how my positive actions can have a profound affect on those around me as well. The goal for today: do the best I can, be a part of life, be humble enough to ask for help & selfless enough to give it! We are all in this together! Have a great day everybody!
There is a difference between caring, and worrying. Primarily the difference is that caring is unselfish; and worrying is selfish. Caring can’t cause negative thoughts or feelings because it’s a Pure Positive… it’s ALWAYS for the sake of the other person. Worrying, on the other hand, ALWAYS has something to do with me. I worry when I think “I’m” to blame for something… I worry when “I’m” going to lose or not get something… I worry when “I” may be negatively affected. But I can claim I “care” when I’m genuinely concerned for “your” well-being. The goal for today: worry is a form of fear & caring is a form of Purity… let your heart tell you which is Right! Have a great day everybody!
Life is not the mystery we’ve made it out to be; it is not some sort of unsolvable riddle; and most importantly… we are not just along for the ride. Life is simple & straightforward; full of facts & realities; and we most certainly hold our destiny in our own hands. Most of what I see & hear from people is the false belief that life is happening to us; but the Truth is that we mold our own destiny by our thinking. If I think about fear, dishonesty, selfishness & resentment… life turns negative. If I think about Purity, Honesty, Unselfishness & Love… life turns positive. The goal for today: don’t confuse the hell out of life… just do what I know in my heart is Right! Have a great day everybody!
I finally found the secret to learning how to love yourself… & it’s pretty simple. The secret ingredient in self-love is altruism… the unselfish concern for the welfare of others. The only time I don’t love myself, is when I don’t care about you. I’ve learned that trying to love myself while not caring about anybody else never works, because it’s selfish. And we have to be careful that we don’t confuse self-love with selfishness. Self-love is a direct result of giving love out freely to others. The goal for today: know that the ONLY way to love myself is to learn to love others! Have a great day everybody!
