You’re no good to the world poor

There’s no escape hatch from that. No exit ramp. No clause that moves you toward changing the situation. The mindset of the phrase isn’t, “If I’m poor, I’m no good to the world, so I’m doing something about it.” Instead, it’s a closed, dead-end, no options perspective of one’s place in the world.

Death is an inevitable cycle

My grandfather died sitting in a chair, watching my grandmother vacuum. Nothing dramatic. I don’t even think he fell over. Just… done. Check, please!

Why aren’t you letting it in?

The human mind is incapable of staying quiet. It’s like an eight track tape; it just keeps going. It keeps on talking; keeps on playing variations on all of those life-long programs we’ve been collecting, reinforcing whatever “truths” we’ve come to believe. This is why it’s important to keep consuming the right kinds of input.

Maybe we’re SUPPOSED to get frustrated.

Abraham says the reason we feel negative emotion is because there is a gap between who we really are and where we are now. That has to mean that we subconsciously feel a disconnection. And if that’s the case, then it’s only natural for frustration to occur when things don’t happen at the snap of a finger. We have a REASON – maybe even a RIGHT – to expect it.

Line up the Energy first

I used to play tennis fairly regularly with a friend of mine. He’s taller, has a longer reach, and (especially today) has more physical stamina than I have. But more importantly, he’s got the mental ability to focus on a goal without distraction. Combine that with his competitive drive, and he’s hard to beat. In fact, I never once did it! I believe that I actually have more talent on the tennis court, and that he’s not THAT much better an athlete than I, but I don’t have the sheer determination to win that he does. I didn’t take the time to see myself beating him before we played, and it never happened…

Mahalia Michaels and the Not-So-Strange Coincidence

…Luckily, she was a pretty good speaker, physically attractive (OK, truth time – she’s pretty sexy), and a core component of what she was talking about was near and dear to every man’s heart – sexuality and sensuality. So, we stayed and listened…

The Universe is only answering YOUR vibration

…She wanted to live a life of fun and freedom and financial independence and health and happiness… But she wasn’t willing to take responsibility for it. She died broke, alone, mostly without friends, and convinced that she was the butt of the Universe’s jokes.

Could be tomorrow afternoon

If thinking about a thing sets the Universe to work delivering it, doesn’t it make sense that thinking about it can also delay, obstruct, or even prevent the Universe from delivering it, as well?

You can go from where you are to where you want to be

…My emotional reaction to their talent was interesting. First reaction: jealousy/envy/etc. “Little bastards shouldn’t be that good…” This was quickly followed by the realization that they were never going to have to work a day in their lives. More jealousy. Then the Law of Attraction perspective kicked in, and I had to admit that these kids were inspiring…

Attention to obstacles makes them bigger and more stubborn

…But in Western society, the typical mindset expects the opposite – get rich first; get healthy first; find that perfect mate first. Then those obstacles will go away…

Every moment is pregnant with the next moment of your life

This is one of the foundational positions we all want to achieve, whether or not we realize it. It’s a simple psychological perspective; belief in the ability of the self to accomplish the goals we set.

Most of it is undone

…they were feeling anticipation about what is still to arrive. Except that it wasn’t positive anticipation. They were taking score, with the expectation that they were the underdog. And, almost without exception, it showed in their performances…
