Power of being positive…

I love it when people say there is actually no negativity in the world or that we attract what we get.  I don’t agree with it.  Okay, to some extent, I do believe we attract some of what we get, but not everything.  There are so many dynamics involved…with this many people in such close proximity, you need to understand that at least some of what you take in is other people’s emotions…that includes love, anger, hesitation, pain, relief, joy, sorrow…whatever you can imagine.

Things are happening very fast and the news is not always great.  There is good and bad going on, but you don’t have to “own” the bad…You have to realize to not accept that energy…don’t take in.  What you CAN do is realize you can get through it and that realization, alone, will make it easier to handle.

I promote positivity in everything.  Does that mean I don’t recognize that things can turn out in other ways?  Of course not!  BUT, it is in how YOU deal with what comes your way that helps you handle the outcome.  We are, after all, human.  We can make mistakes…even honest mistakes can take their toll.  With mistakes come consequences.  Sometimes those are not pleasant.  That famous quote form Mahatma Gandhi comes to mind, “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”  with that, another comes to mind, a Lakota Prayer, Mitakuye Oyasin, We are all Related…which in turn reminds me of another, Luke 6:31, which basically says, Do unto others and you would have them do unto you…

When you realize we are all related, so what I do to you will happen to me and to have a truly positive world, we have to BE positive, it should make us realize that things can change…We CAN make a difference in our world…Amazing what thoughts we can think when we accept the “teachings” of more than one “faith!”  (Which, by the way, are as related as we are!)

Keep working on positive thoughts and approaching all situations with love rather than dread!  With so many people having “free will” but not understanding that it comes with responsibility, we are bound to encounter negativity.  BUT, it does not have to be a part of your everyday life and, while you will have to deal with it, dealing with it with positivity and love rather than anger will only strengthen you…

You are a might Creation from an even mightier Creator!  Truly, there is nothing you can’t do…The minute you realize that simple truth, the better things will be to handle…Remember, Our Creator never said we wouldn’t face trials, just that we could get through anything…Keep that with you as you move through your journey here and reap the benefits of more freedom…freedom from undue amounts of stress and anxiety…After all, it’s your life!

Life, Mended

Out of the depths, wandering free,
Soul’s first adventure on Its own.
Death and destruction, mayhem and madness.
“Who would want this?” ” What have I chosen?”

Don’t want to turn back, the light, it still shines.
With some, comes some more.  This one I can win!
Lessons are learned, as hard as they are.
Other choices are made, the difference is clear.

Darkness moves from sight, into the corners.
Slinking away and hiding with guilt.
As Soul takes charge, clearing the mess
left by a life that was lived by default.

Life gives up the suffering, learning to love,
not only Itself, but others alike.
Becoming more kind, gentle and clear,
The prize is at hand, Life sees past Its fears.

More sure of Its host, Soul rejoins the Body.
Loving thoughts They do think, together as One.
Helping the others, family and friends,
mending the fences and broken bridges.

New is the Creature, tranquil and sure
Life springing forth, no longer in doubt.
Pristine and perfect, glistening bright.
Giving forth much, and so mends the Life.

Spiritual Appetite…

We’ve all heard the saying, “You are what you eat” (and some us of reflect that!!!), but have we ever considered that with regards to our spirituality?  What if we modified it to “You are what you pray?”

Do you pray for the good of the person for whom you are praying, or do you pray selfishly?  Do you think positive thoughts for people (another form of prayer!), or are your thoughts self-serving?  Once, one of my friends admitted she was praying against what I wanted because she did not want me to move forward to the next phase of my life…She wanted me to stay where I was…How do you think Karma affected that situation?  I did get my desire to move forward, by the way!

AND…if you will pray/send thoughts like this for a friend, how, spiritually, are you treating those you consider your enemy?  What does the Bible have to say about that???  Matthew 5:44 says, “…love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those insulting you and persecuting you…” and why?  Because what reward is there if you love only those who love you…How can you grow, if you do what is “safe?”  The bible tells us that, too…it also says Our Creator sends both sun and rain to the good and evil…but for us to be perfect, as Our Creator in heaven is perfect.

We’ve talked about praying and meditating so much that it becomes SO routine that your subconscious actually thinks positive thoughts on its own…but, likewise, we can “train” our subconscious to think negatively, as well…And that will come back to bite you if you are not careful…Remember Karma…what goes around comes around???

I challenge you, today, to start a campaign for the positive…if you catch yourself thinking negatively about someone, or even something, find something positive to think for the situation, no matter how small…before you no it, all your thoughts will be positive and your Spiritual Appetite will be more than satisfied!

Ever-Changing…

We all seem to be experiencing stressful times.  As I have said before, this blog is as much about passing on “wisdom” to our selves, helping us learn something, as it is helping someone else realize…We are just NOT alone in our challenges!

Today, there is a whole lot of unnecessary strife in the world and some of us are looking outside ourselves for the answers…maybe waiting on someone else to “do the fixing.”  While the “unnecessary strife” does seem to come from without,  with corrupt governments here and around the world making every wrong decision they can, our families and friends, and sometimes even ourselves, doing the same thing, everyone is looking for a quick fix…something to take the edge off.

Sure, we can look at everything as negative, but what if we turned that around?  What if we looked at everything as an opportunity for change?  Maybe there is something we have been needing to change and maybe this is your “wake-up” call?  Ever wanted to do something different?  Make another choice?  Change things around?  Maybe we should take advantage of the opportunity to change our lives…

I am sure many of us are saying, “But make changes now, with so much going on already?”  Well, why not?  We just have to be willing to take the first step or two!  Nothing will ever change if you stay in the same spot…You have to be willing to make that first step…

So…that all said, is there anything you have ever wanted to do differently?  Anything that might need to be eliminated?  Beefed up?  Added to?  Or, maybe just tweaked?  You are an amazing expression of Creation with gifts that you have yet to even embrace!  make the most of your experience here!  Why not vow to start creating a change or two…see where it takes you…then, if need be, create some more…lighten up, get out there and make a difference in your own life.  Don’t be afraid to become ever-changing and see where it takes you!  Who knows?  You might just be making a difference in the lives of every one around you!
