I have a choice today! I can fill my heart & mind with fear, dishonesty, selfishness & resentment. Or I can fill my heart & mind with Purity, Honesty, Selflessness & Love. The choice is mine & mine alone... no one can force me to feel one way or the other. I definitely woke up on the wrong side of the bed today & now I have a choice to make: let the negativity snowball... or rise above it all on the wings of spiritual principles. The goal for today: choose positivity... because it's the only sane thing to do! Have a great day everybody!
Unselfishness is a big part of the solution to all of our problems. I don't expect you to believe that without any proof, but this is one of those things that can't really be proven on paper. So if you want proof, you're going to have to try it out for yourself & see what happens. So do yourself a favor & help someone today... because the unselfish concern for the welfare of others, just might save your life today. The goal for today: don't knock it 'til you try it... help someone & see what happens! Have a great day everybody!
I try not to take things personally. I've come to the realization that no one is doing anything "to" me... they are doing things "for" themselves. If you wrong me... I won't take it personally. If my girl cheats on me... I won't take it personally. If my friends steal from me... I won't take it personally. If my coworkers bad mouth me... I won't take it personally. People do these things because they are afraid; they are trying to protect themselves... not hurt me. The goal for today: I will be understanding of your illness... rather than angry at your actions! Have a great day everybody!
When I get mad, I've done something wrong... & there are no exceptions to this Law. Next time you get mad, try this: write down who made you mad & why... then set the anger aside (I ask God to help me not be angry). Next, write what you're afraid you might lose or not get... then set the fear aside (I ask God to help me not be afraid). Last, write down where 'YOU' went wrong... who you hurt & what you should have done instead... then put the effort into doing it right (I ask God to help me live up to my new ideal). The goal for today: spot, admit & correct my resentments! Have a great day everybody!
"The world moves for love... it kneels before it in awe" ~from the movie The Village. Love is simply the most powerful force in the world! It doesn't matter if it is being directed toward your significant other, family, friends, acquaintances, strangers, or even enemies. It heals & bonds & rebuilds. It quiets & calms & soothes. It can lift us up, or lay us down. It will always give us exactly what we need... if we give it out freely to others. The goal for today: Love everyone... equally, unconditionally & immeasurably! Have a great day everybody!
I used to believe that my happiness came from outside of me... from people, places & things. I thought if people would act the way I want them to act... I could be happy. I thought a change of scenery would make me happy. I thought the right job, house, car or amount of money would make me happy. Now I know that none of these things are true. The goal for today: know that the Right people, place & things will come into my life AFTER I find Peace & Happiness deep down inside of myself! Have a great day everybody!
"I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do" ~Ten Years After. Do you want to change the world? So do I... but I never knew how. Now I do! I never knew how to change the world because I was trying to change "the world" rather than changing myself. Now I fully understand that the one & only way to change the world is to change myself. The goal for today: if I really & truly want to change the world... I absolutely must start by changing myself! Have a great day everybody!
If someone wrongs you & you wrong them back... does that make you feel better? Example: If your girlfriend cheats on you & you call her a whore... does that make you feel better? If you answered yes, it's because you are full of fear based dishonesty. If you answered no, then you are headed in the Right direction. The fact is that retaliating out of anger never feels good... so why the hell do we keep doing it? The goal for today: pray for the sick, forgive their mistakes & love unconditionally... I guarantee you that will feel better! Have a great day everybody!
"You would lead, when others would only follow" ~from the movie The Village. Following seems easier, less stressful, less responsible, less uncomfortable... but there comes a time in everyone's life, when they will have no choice but to lead. And when that time comes for you, where will you lead people to... Heaven or hell? We all possess leadership qualities, but we don't all use those qualities for good. The goal for today: lead by example, lead with vision, lead by principle... & lead people to freedom! Have a great day everybody!
Sometimes we just click with others on a physical level & loving relations follow... friendships, relationships, partnerships. Other times it goes much deeper... our souls have much in common & we bond on a spiritual level. These spiritual ties are important! They bring the most fulfilling moments into our lives... & they cut the deepest when they appear to be lost. The goal for today: when you experience a devastating loss, know that although physical fades... a bond of the soul can never be broken. Have a great day everybody!
