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!

Create

“Man, having the nature of his Father (God), remains a creator” ~Emmet Fox. 

This explains everything! 

God doesn’t send trouble… man created that. 

God doesn’t send sickness… man created that. 

God doesn’t send accidents & misfortunes… man created that. 

I need to stop creating screwed up shit & blaming God for it! 

The goal for today: know that God’s will is perfect good & everything else… is a man made creation! 

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!

Political… Social… Spiritual

If I had to choose one of these three, which would it be?

Politically correct… where I’m encouraged to lie to you to avoid hurting your feelings.

Socially acceptable… where I lie to you for fear that you won’t accept me for who I am.

Or Spiritually fit… where I think, speak & act the Right way, for all the Right reasons.

I’m choosing spiritual… not only is it the Right thing to do, but it makes the other two completely unnecessary.

The goal for today: set the bar for my conduct on God’s standards… no one else’s!

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!
