A Greater Consciousness Arising – Day 263 of 365 Days to a Better You

Today’s Affirmation
Life Affirmation: Today I contribute my unique and irreplaceable spark to the great bonfire of life.

Today’s entry is a multi-paragraph affirmation I wrote over 20 years ago. It captures the essence of a dream I had in 1997. I awoke in the dream to a world with eternal sunlight. Bigotry and want were no more. People pursued their highest potential rather than another dollar.

Utopia? Perhaps. I can tell you this. I was a dream I was a little sad to wake up from. That’s partly because I have had such a vision for humanity in the real world for many years. It’s almost like it’s right there through a thin, but impenetrable, veil. We are separated from that by our lowest impulses. I’ve often wondered what our world and our civilization could be, if a critical mass of people raised their vibrations. Could we pierce that veil?

Here’s the affirmation. It’s a reminder that the world we live in is a choice not a prison sentence. We can have a world rooted in peace and driven by the potential alive in each of us, if that is world we expect and demand.

If we continue accept less, then that is the reality we will continue to experience.

This affirmation calls on us to expect more of ourselves, each other, and our leaders. It reminds us that a new and better day is right here ready for us to awaken to it. Some have. Some are. Some will. Some are fighting to hold on to the old world. Which are you?

The sun is rising; the clouds have passed away. And in the minds of at least a few, a greater consciousness has arisen. Tradition is no more. There is only awareness: an awareness of radiant possibilities and transcendent hopes for a world about to be born.

A world in which our fondest dreams shall come to pass. Where the greatest potentiality of humanity is realized: that each member of the human family will awaken to the inner light that opens one’s heart and frees one’s mind to look across culture, race, gender, religion and vast distance and see oneself.

Be of good cheer, o patient ones, for this new day dawns; a day of wonder and hope. A day, when filled with joy, all people shall attain their full potential. Long has been the night of toil and pain. Too long have brothers and sisters lived according to their fear of each other rather than their love for each other. But no more, the blinders have come off.

Finally and forever the Human Race will stand in the radiance of the truths that have lived within each of us all along. Truths that can no longer be ignored or distorted. The truth of our UNITY and our place in this planet’s web of life and in the greater cosmos beyond.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

About Affirmations: You Already Think in Affirmations All Day Long

Today’s Thought:

Positive thinking may not work 100% of the time, but negative thinking does.

When I talk to people about using positive affirmations I often encounter comments like, “Well, affirmations are OK, but they just won’t work for me,” or “I could never do that.”

I always think, “Did I just hear you right?” You just used a (negative) affirmation and proved your own point incorrect by demonstrating how successful that affirmation is for you. You believe you can’t do affirmations or that they would never work for you and your affirmation has come true!

Consider this. You think in affirmations all day long. You are constantly molding your experience of the world through a series of can/can’t am/aren’t statements in your mind (a.k.a. positive affirmations or negative affirmations). An affirmation, after all, is only a statement that you can/can’t accomplish something or that you are/aren’t capable.

I love reading articles by folks who say affirmations are a fraud, useless, or self-delusional (more affirmations). The kinds of affirmations you think have a pretty high correlation to the outcomes in your life. When you think in positive affirmations about something, your attitude and your actions fall into line and you generally succeed. When you harbor and express negative affirmations about something failure is almost sure to follow.

Positive affirmations are not magic pills. They don’t change certain laws of physics. They cannot always impact the quantitative, but they can almost always improve the qualitative. For instance, a sixty year-old woman cannot affirm that she is twenty and wake up one morning 20 years old. However, the sixty year-old who affirms that she feels twenty is going to remain happy and active longer than someone who affirms all day how old they are becoming.

So, the questions really are these:

  • If affirmations are just a fancy name for the kinds of thoughts we think all day, do you choose to think in positive affirmation or negative affirmations?
  • Do you choose to believe you can or conclude you cannot?

Affirmations are inevitable travelers through your consciousness. They are an autonomic function of your mind that’s been dubbed “self-talk.”

You can’t stop them from appearing and you can’t necessarily change the ones that appear in your mind. However, you CAN control  which thoughts you choose to focus on. Remember, “where focus goes, energy flows.”

Whichever you choose, you will experience. Which kind of affirmation do you choose today?

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Get Curious Again – Day 254 of 365 Days to a Better You

Curiosity – a strong desire to know or learn something. Do you remember when that was you? Every day was an adventure in discovery. The world was a big place with so much to learn and to know.

Then, one day, you knew everything or at least you thought you knew enough. You stopped being curious and started hardening into routine, dogma, and complacency. You stopped asking WHY? You stopped questioning all together and you accepted the faulty notion that “It is what it is.”

The great John Wooden once said,”It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”

There’s more to know than the consensus. There are horizons to explore beyond where they convinced you to stop and be satisfied. If “they” have it all figured out, then why aren’t more people happy, abundant, and enlightened?

You can stay put, blend in, and keep the rest of the herd comfortable by not challenging their paradigms. Or, you can reclaim your curiosity and be the amazing, dare I say, extraordinary human being you cam to the planet to be.

What’s the reward? Joseph Campbell nailed it when he wrote, “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”

The magic, you see, is transcending the limits of logic, seeing beyond the numbers of the equations, and through to the deeper reality beneath.

You were born to go there. We all were. Wondering where the insight will come from? Worry not, my friend! Remember the old aphorism. “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”

Always be ready. Always be curious and just watch what happens.

Thank YOU for spending a few more minutes of your valuable time reading the blog. If you find value, please share it with someone else who might too!
