I believe that real Love works kinda like electricity... it flows from the main, through the switch, out to the bulb. If it flows in the opposite direction... if the main expected to get power back from the bulb... the house would burn down & there would be no more electricity. I believe that Love also flows in one direction... it flows from God (or whatever you call the source), through our hearts, out into the world around us. The goal for today: 'give' Love rather than trying to 'get' Love! Have a great day everybody!
We have a best feeling & a worst feeling. My best feeling is when I am giving Love out freely to others... expecting nothing in return. Nothing feels better because that is our purpose for existing & what could feel better than fulfilling our intended purpose? My worst feeling is the fear of being alone. Nothing feels worse because it causes selfishness which destroys the opportunity to fulfill my intended purpose... & what could possibly feel worse? The goal for today: Love... because nothing feels better! Have a great day everybody!
The best way to help someone is to teach them how to consult their own conscience. What does that mean? It means that the person with the problem already knows the solution, it's already inside of them. A method that I have found useful is to ask myself what I would tell you to do if you were having the same problem. Your solution, is my solution. It's amazing how the Right answers come when we put ourselves in someone else's shoes. The goal for today: know that what I would tell you to do, is exactly what I should do! Have a great day everybody!
"Karma is a bitch... I can't wait til you get yours" ~idk. I'm sure I've said this a time or two, but now I can see the absurdity of it. First of all, the law of karma doesn't need any enforcement help from me... it exists specifically so I don't have to play judge, jury & executioner. Secondly, me wishing bad karma on you would quite certainly be the best way to bring bad karma upon myself. The goal for today, let the law of karma do it's job & I'll do mine. And mine is to Love people... unconditionally! Have a great day everybody!
"Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace" ~idk. I don't know who comes up with this stuff, but that is suggesting that pretend forgiveness can lead to real Peace... & I strongly disagree! A genuine act of forgiveness is the only way to get from anger to Peace. The fact of the matter is that if I'm not willing to genuinely forgive you... then I don't deserve peace. I'm not a big fan of these sayings that attempt to lift one person up by tearing another down... I guarantee you, this will not work. The goal for today, know that real Peace comes from real forgiveness! Have a great day everybody!
If I have an opinion that I feel strongly about... I should try it out & prove to myself whether or not it's accurate. If my opinion proves itself, I can stop calling it an opinion. We have a different word for things that prove to be true, we call them facts. As I look around this troubled world, it seems that all our troubles come from trying to live by these unproven opinions. In fact, in a world governed by precise Laws & Principles, it is impossible to have a problem that is not caused by an opinion. The goal for today, find some facts to live by! Have a great day everybody!
"It's human nature to get angry" (or any other negative emotion)... that's just not true! It took many years to understand the difference between 'human nature' & 'common place' & I finally get it. Real human nature is a Purely positive influence... a negative is never human nature! Just because everybody's doing it, doesn't mean it's normal & natural... that just means it's common place. The goal for today, know that Happiness, Peace & Freedom are the natural order of things! Not happy... not natural! Have a great day everybody!
There are a handful of things in this life that I am certain of & one of them is that fear is at the root of all my problems. My next thoughts, words & deeds will either be based on Love or fear... & only I can decide which it will be. There was a time in my life that I would have disagreed with this statement, but now I can see that I had piled my fears so high & so wide that I could no longer see over or around them to the Truth. The goal for today, tap into a Higher Power that will help me rise above my fear so I can see the Truth & start solving some problems! Have a great day everybody!
"Nice guys finish last"... that's just not true. Being kind, considerate & polite while trying to manipulate people doesn't make me a 'nice guy.' In order to actually be a nice guy... I have to be genuinely kind & loving... I have to be giving 'freely' of myself to others. If I feel angry or hurt because you didn't show appreciation for my kindness, that is proof positive that it wasn't really kindness... it was in fact, fear based selfishness. The goal for today, if I want to avoid finishing last... I should learn how to really be a nice guy! Have a great day everybody!
"I care too much" ~unknown. I've made this claim many times, but in reality... that's just silly. The Truth was that I had a fear of people not liking me, a fear of confrontation & a fear of being alone that caused me to be a doormat. I allowed people to walk all over me, take advantage of me & take me for granted because I was afraid. So the True statement would sound more like this... "I fear too much." The goal for today, tell myself the real Truth... get rid of fear & care more... because we can never care too much! Have a great day everybody!
