Our spiritual power is enhanced with each blessing we give. And as our spiritual power is enhanced, life’s trials are fewer. Our struggle to accept situations, conditions, and other people, or our struggle to control them, lessens every day that we recognize and revere one another’s individualistic existence.
If I am faced with a change of any kind today, I will know I am not alone. Whatever I am facing is right for Me and necessary to my well-being. Life is growth and the next stage awaits…. so if the door closes, don’t keep pulling on it and allow the window to open!
Barriers, distractions, and obstacles appear to stand in OUR way and frustrate and depress US. The knowledge that we seldom know (You don’t know until you know) and understand what is best for US. We may wonder why a door suddenly closes. Our paths are questioned only when our steps have started off OUR path.Continue reading “Windows and Doors”
Gratitude for what IS prepares us for the blessings meant for us around the corner. If we are still and close our eyes we can experience the present moment. When we separate from today and wait for tomorrow or next week, or next year, we are stunting our SPIRITUAL GROWTH. Life can only bless usContinue reading “Be PRESENT”
Our experiences today won’t come around again–in just the same way. The people in our lives won’t say again just what they’ll say today. We shouldn’t miss out on what life offers. We can risk feeling it all, hearing it all, seeing it all.
The past that many of US choose to hang on to stands in Our way. Many of Us needlessly spend much of Our lives fighting a poor self-image. Each moment is a new opportunity to let go of all that has trapped me in MY past. I am free.
“Life is made up of desires that seem big and vital one minute, and little and absurd the next. I guess we get what’s best for us in the end.” –Alice Caldwell Rice
…. “I was taught that the way of progress is neither swift nor easy.” – – – Marie Curie
“Ask…. Seek….. Knock… it will be given to you…. You will find… the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7
Today when I S-L-O-W down I am free and open to all the blessings that are meant just for me. Frantic and panic are old familiar friends. It’s time to kick them out from Our house.
God’s Timetable is not necessarily Our Timetable. Events will happen as scheduled and for a bigger picture than Our ego will permit. I will take a long look at where I am today and be grateful for my place. It’s right for me now and is preparing me for my next adventure.
We must learn to ACT rather than REACT. Change is ours if we want it. Being in charge of our own feelings and our own actions prevents anxiety from overcoming us. The opportunities to react will be many today. Everytime I pause, determine the action I feel better about and take it. My emotional healthContinue reading “Reaction isn’t ACTION”
“Surviving meant being born over and over.” – – Erica Jong ….Each day we make a decision to live anew. Each time we call a friend, work a step, or go to a meeting, we renew our contract with life. If you want something good to come out, u must consciously make an effort toContinue reading “Survival”
The attitude we cultivate, whether one of love or selfishness, inferiority or superiority, will determine how the events of our lives affect us. The principle is so simple. If we meet life with love, with a smile, we’ll find love and something to smile about. My attitude will make this day what it becomes. MeetingContinue reading “Start with a Smile”
