Move toward what makes you happy

We’re looking for something to clear the fog for us; to show us the how to reach a higher plane. But, spend a little time studying the ideas around spiritual enlightenment and you’ll quickly see that ALL of the teachers will tell you that your guidance comes from within.

Stop playing the blame game

SO many people just can’t/won’t accept that they are where they are, regardless of how or why, and shift their focal energies toward progressing in their lives. They seem determined to blame someone.

With clarity of purpose (desire) comes results

If you’ve ever tried to start a business on your own, you know how many things there are to attend to; writing content for websites, emails, business cards, flyers (any and all types of marketing); website design and creation (very different from creating content), graphics for your materials, product ideas, outlines, creation, packaging, sales and fulfilment; networking; crafting and practicing your elevator speech; getting educated in all of these areas; attending workshops; etc., etc., etc. The list goes on forever. Literally!

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.

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.

You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey

If we go through life focused on the negative, using every opportunity to point out the ugly and the unfortunate and the unjust things in this world (all of which are personal judgements, by the way), we’re going to end our lives unhappy, unhealthy, and full of resentment and fear.

Fear – You asked for it

Did you know that Al Capone died of syphilis because he was afraid of needles?

You don’t get a better Corvette for suffering

If someone has spent 14 years walking to work, and has developed a desire to drive a new Corvette, is their desire any more valid than yours, which came forth when you watched a great commercial about the latest model? It’s the same desire.

That’s all, Folks!

If you understand that your point of attraction is going to be affected by whatever you give your attention to, you then have to decide what kinds of things to give your attention to. The choice is yours, and so is the responsibility for the consequences of that choice.

WHINING IS A VERY GOOD THING!

“The entire Universe is set up to produce whining within you! You cannot squelch whining. You are born whiners. Whining is a good thing. Write that down in big letters: WHINING IS A VERY GOOD THING!”

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…

OMG! I think it’s working!

“What is meditation supposed to accomplish?” I mean aside from lowering your blood pressure, helping you to relax, and the sizeable list of other physical benefits. These things are reason enough to do it, but they’re not spiritual in nature. Rather, they’re wonderful side effects. How does meditation help someone along their path?
