You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.~C.S.Lewis
So many dreams as a child…then one day…they stop. Why? Are we too old? Nah! Dreams and goals come and they go. When one goals is or is not achieved, time to set a new one. Creating a new goal…creates a new reality. Within the Canvas of Life, everything changes…why can’t we? The time is now…
Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.~Abraham Lincoln
Some will disagree with this statement with remarks of their current situation dictating their misery. While unfortunate circumstances present themselves, it is our choice to allow it to bring us down. I once met a man who was a double-amputee and he smiled everyday. He made up his mind to be happy no matter what. I know, I know…”but you don’t know my circumstance.” You are correct! I do know we still have choice.
Whatever past I may have or whatever future may hold, I rejoice in this moment…for I Am Here.~Ani Po
Every thing and every moment has led to this point in time. Whether you can see the miracles or not yet…take a moment of reflection. If all is good, then rejoice. If things are not so, then rejoice…as infinite possibilities are awaiting. Just the mere thinking of change, thwarts us into a new reality of change. Just the reflection of how things may not be so wonderful…means that everything is about to change. We are looking for happiness and happiness is looking for us.
What is it that will bring happiness? What does it look like? Is there a new job? Whatever the reality may be…go get it! Do not wait, do not delay! It is time to reclaim an alternative reality…Step into the Canvas…believe it…know it…and it Shall be SO.
Retreating to our inner realms, the outer is transformed.~Ani Po
When our outer realms become to overwhelming, we have the ability to sit quietly…retreating to a quiet place within. Give it a whirl…close your eyes, focusing on inner peace. What do you feel?
In doing so, we retain our inner peace without giving it away to our outer distractions. Failing to remain calm, we give in to the outer pressures…creating an inner turmoil. Be strong, be calm…be peace…
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.~Confucius
Our eyes can be so limited, affixed upon the media of the day or the shortcomings of the like. Closing them, but for a moment…fixing our attention on the magnificence of our breath, life, etc., we are reminded of divine nature within the self.
In keeping our eyes closed, we open to the eyes of Spirit…seeing everything for its divine perfection that remains hidden to so many. See the beauty of the day, see beauty within the Canvas before you…feel it…know it to be perfect in all its imperfections…
When Heaven is about to confer a great office upon a man, It first exercises his mind with suffering, and his Sinews and bones with toil; It exposes him to poverty and confounds all his undertakings. Then it is seen if he is ready. ~Moshi
Often times we are challenged with daily events or personal issues…how we respond lay the foundation for what we may become. If we choose to wallow in pity or succumb to the darkness, we remain in its misery. However, if we choose to see the light within the darkness, we are launched to another lesson…awaiting our attention…
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.~Edward Everett Hale
Our reality is dictated by our thoughts and actions. Remain behind our roadblock of self and we shall never know what lay ahead. Connect with our Divine Nature and our efforts align with that which we most desire…
