I've stumbled upon some interesting Laws of Life. Everybody knows that anger & resentment are bad. Everybody knows that it's not ok to be selfish. We all know that fear is destructive & that dishonesty leads us away from Freedom. But we keep indulging in these things... justifying our wrongs & claiming to be Happy. The Law says that it's impossible to be selfish, resentful, dishonest, afraid... & Happy. The goal for today: know that real Happiness only comes from Purity, Honesty, Selflessness & Love! Have a great day everybody!
"No defect can be corrected until we clearly see what it is" ~Anon. For years I treated the symptoms of my problems instead of the causes. Example: I thought the solution to my fear of being alone was to not be alone... I was wrong. Did you ever feel alone in a room full of people? Me too! That's because loneliness is just a symptom... fear is the real problem & until I fix that... I will continue to feel alone no matter how many people I surround myself with. The goal for today: stop treating symptoms... find & treat causes! Have a great day everybody!
"Nothing happens in God's world by mistake" ~idk. I've been making mistakes my whole life... I'm pretty sure we all have. Mistakes happen all the time because we, as human beings, are frequently working in opposition to God's will & it's usually because we are mistaken about what it is. It's our job to manifest the will of God here & we usually screw it up. The goal for today: stop blaming God for 'my' mistakes & stop justifying my mistakes by claiming that it's normal & natural for me to be a screw up! Have a great day everybody!
"Good things come to those who wait" ~idk. Patience isn't a bad thing, but I would be more inclined to believe that good things come to those who get up off their ass & do the work required to attain those good things. I was sitting around waiting for good things & they simply didn't come, primarily because I didn't do the work required of me to get them. I mustn't use patience as an excuse to procrastinate. The goal for today: don't wait... go out & get Life! Have a great day everybody!
"The best way to avoid being let down, is to not have expectations" ~idk. Unfortunately, this is also the best way to avoid Happiness & Fulfillment. I have expectations! I expect Happiness... I expect Peace... I expect Freedom... for after all, these things are our birthright. What I don't expect, is to get & keep these things without earning them on a daily basis. These things must be earned! The goal for today: expect an abundance of Life... but also expect to work for & earn that abundance! Have a great day everybody!
The words "maybe no one will know"... can be extremely dangerous. I might be able to con the rest of the world, but I will never be able to fool my own conscience. Just because no one else knows what I've done, doesn't mean that I will not suffer the guilt of knowing myself. My secrets will chip away at my peace & serenity. The goal for today: admit my faults, to God & the people around me... because in the end, the Truth is all that really matters! Have a great day everybody!
Someone once said to me... "Do you want me to tell you you're right... or do you want me to tell you the truth?" Most of my life I just wanted people to tell me that what I already believed was accurate. I thought it made me look smart... & more importantly, it meant that no further action was required on my part. If I were wrong, it might mean that I'm not the smartest person on Earth... & that I might have to change & both of those things sounded bad. The goal for today: keep an open mind & embrace change... because change is Life! Have a great day everybody!
"Any attempt to shield the sick man from temptation, is doomed to failure" ~Anon. There is always going to be trouble in the world... I can hide from it... or I can work through it. I can live & love & grow & rise above my troubles or I can wither away, wishing for the end. I can be a part of life, rather than hiding from the world. I can be alive, or afraid... but I can't be both. The goal for today: stop running & hiding... get rid of fear... learn how to cope... make things happen... & be a part of Life at last! Have a great day everybody!
Some pray on their knees & that's ok; some don't & that's ok too. God is far more concerned with the position of my heart & my mind, than He is with the position of my body. If I have a heart full of hate & anger... does it really matter whether or not I'm praying on my knees? I must never forget that it is not the outwardly acts or observances that are important, but the thoughts & feelings... that's where the Truth about who I really am lies. The goal for today: get Right on the inside & let the outside take care of itself! Have a great day everybody!
