One of the most important abilities we have as human beings, is the power to move the intellect and the emotions. Whether they be those within us or that of others, we can soothe or motivate thoughts and actions. In fact, inspiration is the result of a “breathing” mind … one which allows the flow of divine spiritual energy to enter freely without resistance.
Unfortunately, the nature of our being joined with a physical existence tends to keep us “grounded” in earthly concerns as if they are the dominant features of our being. More often than not we forget that we are spiritual beings having this physical “human” experience. The majority of our “bodies” are actually vibrational in form, connected to our Source. What generally happens to us is that we focus on circumstances and events that affect us one at or another too seriously. It’s as if our lives are dictated by the experiences of the world we live in as opposed to our dictating the experiences we want from our world. After all, having the energy which created the universe as part of our souls, the Source within us, we are capable of re-creating “reality”. We do not have to accept the way things are as the way the will continue to be. We can decide how to be … how to behave … how to think about the people, places, events and things in our lives. There is no sense is being a slave to our energy motions. We can control them. It’s all a matter of choice.
Very often, we neglect the “now” in our lives and spend most of our time in memory. Remembering the past keeps us from enjoying what is happening now and limits our looking forward. I myself began to real-ize this recently. Those of you who have been following this blog have noticed that it’s been a while since I last posted. Well, the reason is, mental expiration. Too many thoughts not leading me forward but keeping me stuck in relentless worry. No need to get into the details but it’s very difficult to come up with good content in that state. Needless to say, I’m past that now and working on an improving future using my “now” as a launching pad.
There are countless blessings that come our way at every moment of a day. This is a fact that must be recognized and appreciated all the time. The only way we can do that is to be present in the moment. Why do you think it’s called the present? Because each moment of our lives is a gift! If we spend our time thinking backwards to the past or worrying about the future, we end up forfeiting the “gifts”. By relaxing and taking the time to be appreciative of where we are, no matter how much it may not be where we want to be, we can use the moment to take the necessary steps toward the outcome we desire. Each step forward will bring the destination that much closer.
Presently, I am working at a job which doesn’t pay me what I believe I deserve. It happens to be a rather comfortable job which allows me a level of freedom whereby I can actually be doing things like this while working. I listen to recorded lectures and read interesting articles while still performing the duties of my position. It’s a blessing all in itself. but, the pay leaves me desiring more. I really have nothing to complain about other than that. When I see the people in the same location busting their butts doing work that is much harder physically and mentally, who get paid the same relatively, I know how lucky I am. Or is it Divine Providence? You see, I recognize my “divinity”. Not that I am better than anyone else. It’s just that I real-ize that I am an extension of The Source of All Created Being. Most of the people I know don’t even think about this until I bring it to their attention. Of course it seems to me that they forget thinking about that shortly after I relate it to them. It’s so easy to get caught up in human frailty. Somehow, by aligning myself with that reality, I have managed to “create” a job reality congruent with that notion … I think. It’s related to the law of attraction. That which is like unto itself is attracted to itself. As I accept with gratitude the people, places, circumstances and things in my life, the door opens to the Universe to supply more stuff to appreciate.
For instance, knowing that I want to be making more money than I have been, though not complaining about it and drawing negativity around that situation, the Universe has been providing me with all sorts of guidance and information as to how I can begin to increase my financial well-being. As if by accident, I was attracted to an ad identifying 6 steps to a six figure business in 90 days. Now, taking into consideration that this seemed far-fetched, I didn’t know if it was true that this could be achieved. However, I also know that “Source” has my back! So much in life has shown me how much It loves me and wants me to be happy. I checked it out … I’m now totally in. Maybe not going to be making six figures in 90 days (though I now see how it can actually happen …) but soon enough though … and likely before the year is up. Hey, even five figures is better than the low four I make nowadays. If you are like me in any way, you owe it to yourself to check it out as well. If you can believe me, you’ll be the wiser for it. Trust me, “Source” and the Universe that does Its work is seeking for you to benefit from life in this time space reality as well. So, inhale the future, bring it in deeply and exhale the past, because back there is nothing that will do you any good right now!
