Walking Among the Greats

Today’s Affirmation:

“My life is coming together in a complete and perfect way. I’m doing all that is necessary, accepting all that is necessary, and releasing all that is necessary for my life to come forth and blossom. I give myself credit for my accomplishments; cut myself some slack for my mistakes. Know that all leads to my growth and healing. I am happy and I enjoy life!”

path_in_the_woodsWhen you accept that your life is coming together just as it should, you are free to challenge yourself to stretch beyond your limits.

On my journey this day, I follow in the footsteps of the immortals. The imprints they have left behind on the Earth are large and their strides are a stretch for me. Yet, if I dare not encounter them and measure myself by them, how shall I ever know the true immensity of my own being?

So, I step consciously into the light; walking the path they once walked. Leaving it, occasionally, and improvising. Adding to it qualities uniquely my own.

Breathing with the trees and conversing with the clouds, as once they did. Our collective wisdom grows until no distinction remains among the path, the immortals, and me.

“There is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” ~ John Ruskin

Right now is the time to open yourself to the possibility of ignoring limitations and going beyond self-imposed boundaries. For the fear and anxiety you experience are nothing but the shadow of unfulfilled promise.

arms_stretched.jpgThe world is full of opportunity and peril and a little of each in the other. It is ever forming and reforming; manifesting in precise accordance with our expectations. For your world lives in your mind long before it becomes visible; shaping itself to your perception of what is possible.

What is set in stone today is the dust in tomorrow’s breeze. Remember you are creating tomorrow’s results with every thought, word, and action today. Change is the catalyst for your betterment and your imagination its only limitation. Make the most of this blessing given you to personify the fruition of the promise that dwells within.

Each moment is a gift providing you with a fresh start on which to build a life filled with things more precious to you than your problems.

Stay inspired!

The Limits of Either/Or Thinking

protest_opposing_groupsWhile I believe most people just want to get up, go to work, raise their kids, and live their lives; the messages in our world are often polarized. There seems to be an effort to turn everything into an Either/Or proposition.

Either God exists or science explains everything. Either natural cures are best and Big Pharma is evil or Big Pharma is helping people and natural cure purveyors are quacks. Either you’re Democrat or Republican, Christian, Jew, or Buddhist.

It’s no coincidence, in my mind, that Either/Or sounds a lot like the sound a stubborn donkey makes. This mindset limits our options, limits our thinking, and, worst of all, limits the progress of our civilization.

Some Either/Or people make it their life’s mission to win the argument with the opposition. Others take the shortcut of simply eliminating people who disagree. Largely, people do this based on conditioned beliefs or rigid approaches to data. They do it without ever having stood a moment in their opposition’s shoes, looked around through their eyes, and most importantly looked back at themselves to see how they look from that perspective.

I’ve had people get mad at me for suggesting they are taking away half of their freedom to vote by ALWAYS voting for one party. Often I hear a response such, “But they’re evil. They can’t be allowed to rule. The sky would fall.” I call this the divided and conquered mindset and it flows naturally from Either/Or thinking.

Have you ever attended the religious service of someone you totally disagree with? Have you ever looked at the scientific evidence that counters your religious beliefs? Have you ever actually read the political arguments of your opposition and tried to see that they’re not evil or crazy and that there are sound reasons for what they believe? If not, you might be caught in the Either/Or mindset.

Open your mind. Consider new possibilities. Don’t let other peoples’ ideas limit what is possible for you – for all of us. When you do, you’ll suddenly see that you had placed yourself in an ideological cage that had to defeat the opposition at any cost. You’ll see you can be free from the cage and that whole universes open up when you do.

Keep your eyes on the skies!

“The Vision Thing”

Today’s Affirmation:

I am a visionary. I see things well ahead of the pack!”

“The vision thing” was a phrase that became popular in political circles in 1987. During an interview with Time Magazine, Vice-president George H.W. Bush answered questions about his inability to clearly articulate his policy positions with a frustrated, “Oh, that vision thing.”

Having a vision is important. It’s important in clarifying our goals and in attracting the help other people in achieving them. People gravitate to people of vision, largely because many of us go through life without one.

Do you have one?

President John F. Kennedy was someone who, in his best moments, could lay out a vision like few other leaders in our history. In 1962, he gave a speech at Rice University (excerpt below) in which he committed The United States to landing a man on the moon before 1960s were over. When he laid out this vision, much of the needed science was more science fiction than science. Yet, Kennedy’s vision and powerful articulation of it galvanized a nation and the kept the vision on track even after his untimely assassination.

What is your vision? It doesn’t have to be as grandiose as going to the moon. It can be as modest or as grand as you wish. Just have one and be ready and able to articulate it when the winds of opportunity come knocking.

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

Roadblocks are Shortcuts to Something Better

Today’s Affirmation:
“Roadblocks are simply shortcuts to something better than I had planned.”

Today’s affirmation is a testament to our ability, indeed, our necessity to turn life’s obstacles into opportunities. There’s an old saying that life is what happens to us on the way to our dreams. We think we are so smart and we have it all figured out and yet life, inevitably, throws us for a loop.

We have a choice. We can sit and pout because things didn’t turn out as we’d scripted them. Or, we can push forward with renewed determination.

Sometimes – as much as we hate to admit it – the universe’s wisdom or God’s is sounder than our own. The very thing that messed up our perfected plans turns out to be the key that unlocks a brand new future.

However, we can’t find that key as long as we view the detour as a curse rather than as the blessing that it truly is. When you see these crazy, unrelated things working to achieve exactly what you’ve been asking for, relax and let the universe work its magic.

May your day be filled with roadblocks ready to transform into shortcuts to your success and happiness.

Follow your bliss! Experience your bliss! Become your bliss!
