Thought + Emotion = Outcome

“Nothing is either good or bad, thinking makes it so” ~Shakespeare. Everything that happens in our lives is a result of attaching an emotion to a thought. When things happen to us, we subconsciously attach an emotion & that choice of emotion dictates the affect that the event has on our physical lives. Example: if I lose my job & CHOOSE to believe it is a bad thing… then it becomes a bad thing & has a negative affect on my life. If I attach a positive emotion & CHOOSE to view it as a new opportunity… then it becomes a good thing & has a positive affect on my life. The goal for today: CHOOSE positive emotions! Have a great day everybody!

Happiness… The Inside Job

For the past 7 days I attempted to establish that the things that are truly important in life are NOT physical, material things. They are spiritual things & spiritual things CANNOT be caused by physical things. I believe the world is in poor shape because we (the human race) keep trying to get what we need from each other… rather than getting it from God & giving love to each other. We all say “Happiness is an inside job” but how many of us can honestly say we are living that way? The goal for today: stop trying to get Happiness, Peace & Freedom from people, places & things! Have a great day everybody!

Spiritual Science

There is a science to life that says… I can’t be selfish & happy at the same time. I can’t be angry & loving at the same time. I can’t make decisions based on fear & do what’s Right at the same time. I can’t build my life on lies & expect it to stand. Fortunately it works both ways… I can’t be selfless & unhappy at the same time. I can’t be loving & angry at the same time. I can’t make decisions based on what’s Right & full of fear at the same time. And I can’t build my life on Truth & have it fall down. The goal for today: Purity, Honesty, Selflessness & Love! Have a great day everybody!

Things That Never Work

Here is a list of things that are guaranteed to NOT solve problems. Fear & worry never solve problems! Dishonesty & deceit never solve problems! Selfishness & self-centeredness never solve problems! Anger & resentment never solve problems! These incredibly unhealthy negative things, might frustrate us enough to turn & seek the Right way… but in & of themselves, solve nothing! The goal for today: practice Purity, Honesty, Selflessness & Love & actually solve some problems! 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!

Sunshine = Happiness

A friend said it is scientifically proven that people are happier when the sun is shining. Well, I’m here to personally guarantee you that you can be happy regardless of the weather. Happiness is a frame of mind… & the weather doesn’t happen inside of your head. This is the age old battle of trying to help people see & believe that NOTHING outside of them can directly affect what they think & feel on the inside. The goal for today: ignore bullshit science that fills us full of misinformation… & dance in the rain! 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!

An Inside Job

They call it “In”tuition for a reason… because it’s supposed to come from inside.
They call it “self”esteem for a reason… because it’s supposed to come from me, not you.
They call it “Inner” Peace for a reason… because it’s supposed to come from our core.
The goal for today: if I want to know the Truth… I will get it from my heart; if I want to know my worth… I will look in the mirror; if I want to know Peace… I will look to my soul, rather than the chaotic world around me!
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!
