Self directed thinkers free from ego. Safe to be myself being true to my purpose. People of love are ready to become the change we seek. Love is the only thing that makes us feel safe. On the other side of the gnawing is a doorway to greatness and possibilities. The gnawing is our call to greatness. Jesus says, “Greater works will you do.”
Humility is realizing your special and so is everyone else. the meaning of life is finding your gift the purpose is giving it away. Giving my gift is love! Giving your gifts makes it vitality especially when your not looking for credit. Being true to your nature creates something meaning. When you spot the flower don’t let anything get in your way. Don’t let the noise of other peoples opinion drown out your voice. You will find your gifts and purpose when you let go…move past being uncomfortable.
There is a difference in looking for the truth to validate self and seeking the truth. Are you true to your nature, if we are observers the truth is everywhere. When the student is ready the teacher appears.
This weeks movie clip showing the bee pollinating the flower was amazing. Mark J described it as “Intercourse of ideas.”
Thoughts shape reality the clearer the picture the easier the gate way to bring thoughts into full manifestation.
4. The forces of life are volatile; they are composed of our thoughts and ideals and these in turn are molded into form; our problem is to keep an open mind, to constantly reach out for the new, to recognize opportunity, to be interested in the race rather than the goal, for the pleasure is in the pursuit rather than the possession.
6. Great financiers are simply channels for the distribution of wealth; enormous amounts come and go,but it would be as dangerous to stop the outgo as the income; both ends must remain open; and so our greatest success will come as we recognize that it is just as essential to give as to get.
The more we can give, the more we get, and the more we get the more we are enabled to give. The Scriptures says, “Give and shall be given,” Sow you will reap,” its a law put in motion by God. The first law of success is service. The servant will be the greatest
Wow! This week with my father being in the hospital has stirred up several emotions from myself and other family member, yet I am very grateful for the new readings in GS because It gave me a reality check to be cognizant of my emotional state. I recognized when my emotions were trying to control me rather than me controlling them I was able to “master my emotions.”
Og said, “I will master my moods I will control my destiny” and, “I had understand and recognize the moods of him on whom I call. I will make allowances for his anger and irritation of today for he knows no the secret of controlling his mind.” These are valuable secrets!
In order to master my emotions I must control my thoughts:
“Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts”-OG.
Today, I am the master my emotions. I refrain from putting my emotions in a good and bad pile the feeling helps me understand my emotional state. Observe the feeling, recognize the thought that is causing the feelings…(cause and effect). Then learn to master those emotions. Journaling is one way to get emotions out in the open which in turn, starts the process of dealing first with the guy or gal in the mirror. Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize and master emotions.
“Getting to know yourself inside and out is a continuous journey of peeling back the layers of the onion and becoming more and more comfortable with what is in the middle-the true essence of you. Getting in touch with your emotions and tendencies takes honesty and courage. Be patient and give yourself credit for even the smallest bits of forward momentum”–Emotional Intelligence 2.0.
Thoughts are spiritual seeds, what you plant will eventually grow. Scroll VI says, I will remember today’s dead flower carries the seed of tomorrow’s bloom. Just like there is an Oak tree in every acorn. All seeds may appear insignificant and dormant but, every seed has the potential to reproduce after it’s kind.
It brings to mind the parable of the Sower…If I feel depressed I will sing (sow singing). If I feel sadness (sow laughter). If I feel fear (sow courage). If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice confidently and be heard! What I sow, I reap.
Think about the type of seed your planting. Are the seeds falling on stony ground, where the seed have no time to take root, are they falling on thorny ground where you allow the cares of this world to come in a choke out the good seeds that were planted. Is it good seeds planted in emotionally rich soil of our lives where it has room to grow and mature. God ordained for us to bear good fruit and that our fruit bring nourishment and feed many. the fruit that is produced from the seeds sown in your life are not just for your enjoyment and benefit, but for others to enjoy.
Stepping out of my comfort zone and use guilt, fear, anger, hurt feelings and unworthiness as tools sounded foreign to me at first. Aha! Now, it’s making sense instead of fear, anger, guilt using me, Why not use them? I asked myself. I am learning to look at these differently.
For instance, last week, my professor ask for volunteers to present a project. Why did my hand fly up like a rocket going into outer space.
I tried to bring my hand back to earth, but it was too late, before I realized it the assignment was thrust into my hand and I was committed. Why meeeeee! I had agreed to speak in front of the class, AGAIN! Although I was afraid and nervous I used it as a tool and accomplished my goal of speaking in public. I quickly remembered a decree I’ve made for the past 5 months,
I always keep my promises!
I would have never thought to use these as tools. Also, I recalled being angry about a situation and making positive changes. The old saying when you get sick and tired of being sick and tired you begin making positive life changes.
13. If you do not like the picture, destroy the negatives and create a new pictures after this is done you will attract new things and the new things will correspond with the new picture.
7 levels of thinking…
Copying-doing the right thing, Effective-doing the right thing right, Efficient-doing the right thing faster, Improving-doing the right things better, Cutting-out the nonsense, Differently-I learn to look at fear, anger, etc differently I decide what is important, I don’t measure myself by what the majority thinks. When I can see the invisible I can do the Impossible.
Hedgehog or Fox…I had to think about this there are so many times we multi-task without even thinking. Like driving and changing the radio or answering our phone while driving etc. Even while we entertain friends and family we have open kitchens where we can cook and interact with guest.
Focus is very important…I’ve heard the term its the little foxes that spoil the vine. I often wondered why, now I understand the little fox is all over the place and neglect what’s most important in life…Relationships, engaging with others, adding value to others, and spending quality time with like minded people.
Daily, I will pay attention to ADDING VALUE to others, thinking of ways to add value, and looking for ways to add value and doing things that add value to others.
“Thinking is the true business of life, power is the results. Unless we are willing to think we shall have to work and the less we think the more we shall have to work and the less we shall get for our work.”
“Humanity is going to require a substantially new way of thinking if it is going to survive” -Albert Einstien
The movie I Am was eye opening especially when the director mentioned the message he got as a kid was “separate yourself from the pack, be number one and win.” Human nature is competitive. We live in a society with the assumption where we are wired to compete. I was talking to my husband a few days ago about the same thing. I explained that if someone wins that means someone has to lose. I prefer we all win and the only way for that to happen is to work together as a community. It’s ok to compete as long as it is a healthy competition where everyone wins. Instead of being a winning woman I chose to be a confident woman. Confident women support, encourage and help one another. Together we can!
On the other hand, the world has the idea that if you want happiness you need wealth…buy more stuff. Things cannot make us happier. Materialism is not the pathway to happiness. For example, years ago I planned my dream vacation to Hawaii in 2007 when we finally arrived in Maui I expected it to be the happiest day of my life. Ironically, it was just the opposite I dipped into a depression the second night and told my husband how unhappy I was. There is a song that says, “Searched all over couldn’t find nobody, look high and low still couldn’t find nobody…” Over the years, I have come to the conclusion that JESUS is the only person that can fill the emptiness, loneliness, and void in my life.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.
Rather than get into self-pity forgive, Lookup and say Thank you…I can’t see where this is going to lead me When you don’t focus on Gratitude you block the light…Let our light so shine before men
HOW DO WINNERS DO IT?
Passion comes from having an authentic Purpose
My transformation will be different because I refuse to grieve the death of the old blueprint. I say Yes to the New Blueprint. There is a big difference in not being discontent and being happy. Focus on what I want not on what I don’t want.
What would the person I intend to become do next? My dream, goal, vision will not make me happy, I am happy and that makes my dreams goals, and visions a reality.
I give myself permission to be happy.
I begin to dance around when Mark J played the song “Happy” this song helped me through some stressful times and it was great to hear it again. I chose to be happy no matter what is happening because happiness is a choice
Mark J asked a question Sunday that I have pondered every day this week. He said, “What am I pretending not to know?” Am I pretending not to know that I am powerful, loving, perfect, strong, harmonious and happy? Am I pretending not to know that I am a Prolific writer and Best Selling Author? Wowwwww!!! If this is true it is time to stop pretending and “BE”!
It’s time to take off the mask, stop pretending. It takes courage to be authentic no matter what anyone else thinks or says. “You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years, and get pats on the back as you pass, but your final reward will be heartaches and tears if you’ve cheated the guy or gal in the glass.”
