"Why don't you choose your own conception of God?" ~Anon. As a kid, I was taught to fear the wrath of God. As an adult, I was taught to embrace the Love of God. The fear of God brought misery & suffering. The Love of God brought peace & happiness. I think I'll stick with Love today... it's bringing a better result! Have a great day everybody!
No matter how big or small the problem, there is always a solution & the only requirement is an honest desire to fix it & a willingness to do whatever it takes. What would you be willing to give up in order to solve your problems? The goal for today, know that I can't lose anything worth having in eliminating the true cause of my problems! Have a great day everybody!
Time doesn't apply to Principles... Time doesn't affect Principles... I often hear people say things like... "Well, that was 200 years ago" & in some instances they're right, but when it comes to Principle... time doesn't matter. Here is a timeless Principle & the first step in solving any & all problems... I can't fix a problem that I refuse to admit exists... this Principle was true yesterday... is still true today & will remain true for all time. The goal for today, work with the Laws of Life, instead of against them, & watch all of our problems begin to fade away! Have a great day everybody!
"Place Principles before personalities" ~Anon. Don't deny yourself of the Truth because you don't like the person who said it. On one of my recent quotes I intentionally left the authors name off of it for fear that some would miss the point because they don't approve of the messenger. The goal for today, remember that the Truth is the Truth no matter who's mouth the words are coming out of! Have a great day everybody!
"Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but they are not entitled to their own facts" ~Daniel Patrick Moynihan. This is a profoundly important point! If something doesn't apply to 'ALL' of us... it isn't a fact! I can't Love & hate at the same time... this is a fact... it applies to every single one of us! The goal for today, don't be blindly lead by opinions... find the always present facts & live in Truth! Have a great day everybody!
"Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together." ~Anon. I found a solution to my problems & little by little my life is becoming a success. But continued success is very specifically dependent upon helping others. The goal for today, help others & create communities full of people, all working together for the greater good! Have a great day everybody!
We constantly misunderstand each other & ourselves! If someone insults me it's because they are afraid... they try to knock me down to lift themselves up (low self-esteem). If I feel insulted by someone it's because I'm afraid... I believe that I am beneath them (low self-esteem). The goal for today, understand that negatives always come from fear, so I can stop taking it personally & rise above it! Have a great day everybody!
We spend so much time focused on the unimportant that we totally miss the things that are vitally important. The goal for today, practice patience, tolerance, kindliness & Love toward everyone, no exceptions... because nothing is more important than that! Have a great day everybody!
I often hear people say that we must Love ourselves before we can Love anyone else, but the one & only way, I know of, to truly Love myself is to give Love freely out to others. Nothing... absolutely nothing, feels more like Love than helping someone else expecting nothing, from them, in return! The goal for today, remember that the only way to know Love is to give Love! Have a great day everybody!
"If all misfortunes were laid in one common heap whence everyone must take an equal portion, most people would be contented to take their own and depart" ~Socrates. If it were a heap of gold, would I do the same? The goal for today, whether it be mental, emotional, physical or financial... take only what belongs to me! Have a great day everybody!
