Be Different

Sunday, August 30, 2015

We know we are fortunate. 
We know that with all its ups and downs, life is good.
Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day.
Come to a decision that nothing which life has to offer
 is worth the price of worry. With this decision will come poise, 
peace of mind, and calmness of thought which brings happiness.
Challenges in life don’t arise haphazardly; they arrive when you’re ready 
for them. Don’t look at the pain as something attributable to misfortune,
 but rather as an indication that its time to grow and move on
 to higher understandings of yourself and your life.
Challenges arrive when you’re ready to grow and learn.
"Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment."

- Lao Tzu
Your words are windows to your heart.
Negative thoughts are not who you are. Your true nature is all good. 
So if by chance a negative thought comes, say to yourself, 
“These thoughts are not mine, and they do not belong with me. 
I am all good and I have only good thoughts for myself and others.”

Somebody needs your hug today. Somebody needs your love. 
Somebody needs to feel your touch. There is healing in your hands, 
and there is healing in your voice.
The best way to get the last word is to apologize.
Those who deserve love the least need it the most.
Learning to forgive takes practice.
Only petty people hold onto useless resentments.
Failure to express or push out negative feelings
does not make them go away; it keeps them in. 
Negativity kept in, harms the body and burdens the soul. 
Release them.
Guilt is a blight upon the land, the poison that kills the plant.
Guilt and fear are the only enemies of man.
Be loving even when you don’t feel loving.
Bad Feelings: Annoyance, Worry, Criticism, Blame, Anger, 
Hate, Revenge, Resentment, Guilt, Depression, Fear
Bad feelings are a lack of love.

The Meaning of Eternity

Each blossom forever blooms in its field;
Each child forever clutches your hand;
Each friend forever lingers in your heart.
This is what eternal means.

Clouds may come, but clouds must go and they all have a silver lining. 
For behind each cloud you know, the sun, or moon, is shining.
Negative thoughts should be recognized and faced, and then replaced.
Some see a hopeless end, while others see an endless hope.
Celebrate and enjoy all that you create, have created. To reject any part of it is to reject a part of yourself. Whatever it is that is now presenting itself as part of your creation, own it, claim it, bless it, be thankful for it. Seek not to condemn it, for to condemn it is to condemn yourself. If there is some aspect of creation you find you do not enjoy, bless it and simply change it. Choose again. Call forth a new reality. Think a new thought. Say a new word. Do a new thing. Call for it.  Say, “I Am the Life and the Way, follow me.” This is how to manifest God’s will “On Earth as it is in Heaven.”

"Conversations with God, An Uncommon Dialogue"
                                            by Neale Donald Walsch

A master blesses calamity, for the master knows that from the seeds 
of disaster and all experiences comes growth of Self.
There is only experience, which you may choose to label in any way you wish. You may choose to label all of it perfection.

 – Edna St. Vincent Millay
"Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come."

– Chinese Proverb
Count the stars.
Look at the sunset as if it were your last.
Living on earth is expensive, but it includes a free trip around the sun.
"Nature is painting for us, day after day, 
pictures of infinite beauty if we only have the eyes to see them."

- John Ruskin

Happiness. Harmony. Joy.
All good is coming to me today. All my desires will be met today. 
Magic and miracles will follow me everywhere today.
I am an individual. I form my physical environment. I change and make
 my world. I am free of space and time. I am part of all that is.
I am a magnet who attracts at any point, 
whatever prosperity, health, and relationships I choose.
I express my feelings of love daily, 
and what I express outwardly is returned to my heart.
I will be cheerful, enthusiastic, and grateful for my blessings.

Lighthouse Sunset

Joy is the flower that blooms when you do.
Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you respond to it.
Problems are opportunities in disguise.
How do I deal with all the uncertainties in my life?

By trusting the unknown. Whenever you don’t know what lies around the corner, you can choose to be frightened or happy about it, 
and whichever you choose will affect, influence, and even decide 
those mysterious moments to come.
Because you make real what you believe, you are in a trap of your own creation. You are creating your own limitations.
Your desire is the size of a dot compared to the Universe.
The Law of Pure Potential: Something creative is always happening. 

Participate with the creative mind of the Universe.

"Nothing is so strong as gentleness; nothing so gentle as real strength." 

–St. Francis de Sales
Only the gifts of our hearts hold enduring value.
Express feelings of love.
We all go through different experiences, but at the same time, we laugh together, we mourn together, we enjoy together, and we help each other.
Our integrity is who we really are, the totality of our own self.
Personality consists of the characteristics that make us distinctive 
from other people and are consistent over time.
